Empties August 2014

 My Empties post this month is going to be a short and sweet one. I have used up a few full size products but they have been put to one side and I will post an overview when I have finished #beautychallenge10.

Empties August 2014

Caudalie Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Fluid (10mls) I managed to get just over a fortnights use from this sample and really enjoyed using it. This has a very light formula, which is perfect for Summer. It contains SPF 15, and delivers the even, radiant skin it promises. This is something I would come back to for Summer as I am not sure it would be enough for my skin over Winter, and so is something I would look to purchase next year.

I have already told you how much I loved my little samples from Lulu and Boo in my post earlier this week. You can read about them here.

I had very high hopes for Ren's Rosa Centifolia Express Make Up Remover. Unfortunately this is the one Ren product which I have been disappointed by. It is very gentle, and doesn't irritate my eyes. I felt that it took an awful lot of product to remove my make up properly. I won't be repurchasing this.

Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask (10mls) this was a very nice mask to use and did leave my skin looking fresher and plumper. However I have facemasks in my collection which do a much better job for less than half the price of this. Another one I won't be repurchasing.

Bodhi and Birch Neroli Luce (5mls) is a firm favourite and I have already bought another sample  bottle of this size. Read my thoughts about it here.

Roques O Neil Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts (100g) were another treat from my swap with Annie and are quite simply a joy to use. I love using these in the bath after a hard day to restore inner calm. I have one more of these sample packs, but will certainly repurchase these in the future.

Green People Soft Buff Skin Exfoliator (10mls) is a product I have mixed feelings about. As a exfoliator, it's both gentle and effective. I was very pleased with the results it gave. The sticking point for me is the fragrance, it just isn't to my liking and I found it very overpowering. I have another sample but won't be repurchasing.

Ancienne Ambiance Goddess Hand & Body Wash (50mls) is a shower gel I love the smell of. I have another little sample bottle to use up. I think next time I will buy the body oil in the same fragrance.

Slender Cow Extra Firming Body Butter (50mls) is a product I can't quite make my mind up about. It is very moisturising - I can't say I have noticed any toning effects from the sample. The fragrance is a bit much when first applied, but then I do really like the smell of it after an hour or so. I can't help but feel I have other equally effective body moisturisers in my stash that are a fraction of the price. I am unlikely to buy the full size.

What have you used up this month?
