Empties July 2014

 I think this is going to be my quickest Empties post ever. I don't feel that I haven't used much up at all this month. Moving swiftly on ....
 
Empties July 2014
 
 I was lucky enough to win this Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream (50mls) by Weleda in a giveaway on twitter earlier in the year. I absolutely love this. Not quite as heavy as the Skin food, but still very moisturising. I love the smell of this. It is such a bright and cheerful fragrance. I was always asked what it is (and to try a bit). I will definitely be buying this again.
 
I wrote about the Protect Mini Kit by Nourish Skincare here which the lovely people at Liv sent me to try. Although the moisturiser wasn't quite right for me, I was very impressed with the price point and the quality of ingredients used. I will buy the cleanser in the future and will buy other products from the range. Further to the review, I was sent the Argan Skin Renew to try and will be reviewing that shortly.
 
 
I seem to have used up quite a lot of shower gels this month!  I am a bid fan of Dr Hauschka products and the Lavender Sandalwood Calming Body Wash (200mls) didn't disappoint me. This has a lovely soft lavender fragrance. I really want to try the Rose and the Almond body washes.
 
I love using Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash (100mls). I think it is such a refreshing Summery fragrance. I have another of these sample bottles stashed but will certainly buy again.
 
Dr Bronner's Magic Soaps crop up regularly in my Empties posts, so it is no surprise how much I love them. The Citrus is one of my favourite fragrances. I currently have the Almond one on the go.
 
My last empty is this gorgeous Mint The Bath & Shower Therapy by Bodhi & Birch (50mls). This is wonderfully cooling, especially in the heat we have been having recently. I bought a full size of this whilst it was on sale. The newly packaged ones are now on the website and I am very pleased to see they now come with a handy pump.

  6. I need to whip out my Bodhi & Birch shower gel, I have the palmarosa one! Almost finished one so I'll use that when I'm done :D The Weleda Sea Buckthorn sounds great, I do love Skin Food but sometimes I'm not after something quite as thick x
