May Empties!

This month i've definitely managed to use up a good mix of products. There's a couple of body moisturisers that I thought were never going to end and even some makeup products for good measure. 
May Empties!
May Empties!
BATH & SHOWER:
Dove Purely Pampering Cream Bath Shea Butter with Warm Vanilla - I've mentioned this a product a few times and I really do love it. It's my go to affordable bubble bath as it smells amazing and feels so luxurious. Repurchase? Yes. 
The Body Shop Coconut Shower Cream - I've had this for a while and finally got round to using it. The smell of this is amazing and has a true coconut scent. I don't love the formula though as it doesn't lather up that much. I think i'll stick to the other body products in the scent from now on. Repurchase? No. 
LUSH Butterbear - This was left over from Christmas and I really enjoyed using it. It has a lovely shea butter and vanilla scent to it and it's actually really moisturising on the skin which I why it's one of my favourite LUSH products. Repurchase? Yes. 
May Empties!
BODY:
Garnier Intensive 7 Day Lotion in Nourishing Shea Butter - I've had this so long that this is actually the old packaging. It's a really great basic lotion as it's very moisturising without feeling greasy on the skin. The shea butter scent is also really nice and not too overpowering. Repurchase? Yes. 
Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion - I really enjoyed this lotion in Winter when my legs were very dry as it's a thick cream but not too heavy. The smell wasn't my favourite Soap & Glory scent but I did get used to it. The only downside is that the product is sometimes a bit too thick to come up the pump especially when you're near to the end which was really annoying. Repurchase? No.  
Nuxe Reve De Miel Hand and Nail Cream - I loved this product so much. My hands have been really dry during the colder months and this helped so much. It isn't too heavy or greasy but is so moisturising. Repurchase? Yes. 
Garnier InvisiCool Anti-Perspirant - I can be pretty fussy about anti perspirants but this one I really like and have purchased a few times because it does the job and smells nice without being too overpowering. Repurchase? Yes. 
May Empties!
SKINCARE:
Bioderma Moisturising Mask for Sensitive Dehydrated Skin - I picked this the last time I was in Paris and really enjoyed it. I used this whenever my skin felt like it needed a moisture boost and I liked it as it wasn't heavy whilst hydrating the skin. I also used this on my neck and it really helped with some dry patches I had. Repurchase? Yes. 
May Empties!
MAKEUP:
Seventeen Pressed Powder - For a long time this was my go to powder and it is a great affordable option. It feels light on the skin yet helps to set my makeup in place and control oil. I have the Matte primer to use now which i'm hoping is just as good. Repurchase? Yes.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - I got this sample the other month and I really enjoyed it. The brush shape meant you could coat ever lash easily. It did dry up quickly and by the end was starting to look a little clumpy which I didn't like. Repurchase? No.
Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara - I got this in a set a while ago and really enjoyed the fact that it was waterproof as it didn't transfer and stayed in place all day. I didn't love the brush and it was a little too big for my liking but the formula was really great. Repurchase? No.

So those are this months empties. I'm really trying to use up those products that have been lying around for a while half empty and I think i'm doing pretty well so far. Have you used up any of your favourite products this month?
