August Empties

This month I had a bit of a beauty clear out, especially with my skincare collection. A few of those products that I threw out or finished have made their way into this months empties as well as the other products i've managed to use up this month. 
August Empties
August Empties
Original Source Lime/Strawberry & Pink Peppercorn Shower Gel - I really like the Original Source shower gels since they smell lovely and leave you feeling clean. I loved both the scents and would pick them up again. Repurchase? Yes. 
Dove Caring Bath Shea Butter Bubble Bath - I've mentioned this a few times and it is one of my favourite bubble bath. I find the scent so relaxing and the creamy texture feels so soft on the skin. It's a great affordable find that actually helps to moisturise the skin. Repurchase? Yes.
August Empties
Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion in Light - I've been using this for a good few years now and it's something I tend to always have around. The smells is a pleasant, fruity scent that isn't overpowering. The cream feels nice on the skin and gives a nice amount of colour whilst still looking natural. Repurchase? Yes. 
The Body Shop Shea Body Butter - I really love all the body butter from The Body Shop but this is definitely one of my favourites. It has a lovely shea scent and feels so moisturising without being greasy. Repurchase? Yes. 
August Empties
Vo5 Cherish My Colour Full Bodied Spray - I try not to use heat on my hair all the time but I do straighten it. I really liked this heat defence spray since it felt like it was protecting the hair without feeling heavy or sticky in the hair. Repurchase? Yes. 
August Empties
Nivea Regenerating Night Cream - I picked this up when I needed a new night cream on a bit of a whim. It was a thick cream which didn't feel heavy on the skin but still managed to be moisturising. Since you only need a small amount so this pot lasted me a long time. Repurchase? Yes.
Indeed labs Hydraluron Moisture Jelly - When I was having my skincare clear out this is one of the products I decided to get rid of since it was past it's best. I used to love the original Hydraluron serum so was excited to try this. It's a nice gel based day cream but I never found it to be as hydrating as the original serum. Repurchase? No. 
Caudalie Beauty Elixir - I always tend to go back to using this in the Summer months as it is so refreshing. The scent is also very relaxing so great to have on you when you're travelling. It's not an essential product to have in your routine but it is nice to use every now and then. Repurchase? Yes. 
August Empties
Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask - I discovered these masks in Copenhagen and have become a bit obsessed with them. I have dehydrated skin and this mask gives a nice hit of hydration without feeling greasy as well as being comfortable to wear. I love sheet mask and these are nice and affordable as well as being very effective. Repurchase? Yes. 
Sephora Pomegranate Eye Mask - This is something else I picked up on my trip to Copenhagen. I have allergies so my eyes can look very tired and dry easily. This eye mask was easy to apply, wear and really helped to wake up eyes up. It's a quick fix and I could really feel a difference when I used it. Repurchase? Yes. 
August Empties
Seventeen Stay Time 18 Hour Concealer - This has been my favourite concealer for coverage redness and blemishes for a long time. The coverage is very good, it's easy to apply and doesn't cling to any dryness. I really like how well this wears and i'm yet to find anything as good, especially for the price. Repurchase? Yes. 

So those are this months empties. I didn't include everything I cleared out since the post would have been way too long so i'll include those in next months empties. Have you used up any of your favourite products this month?
