Is it really August already?
Really into the second half of the year now. It has gone far too quickly but it has been good. In July I managed to use up quite a few products (and buy some too).
The products I finished in July are:
Chanel Lait Confort Creamy Cleansing Milk
A really nice cleanser that removed my makeup and cleaned my skin without drying it out. I will repurchase in the future but not the immediate future.
Chanel Lait Confort Silky Soothing Toner
I liked this alcohol free toner. It did not irritate my skin. As above I will repurchase eventually just not in the immediate future.
Bobbi Brown Repair Serum
This was a sample I received with a purchase from the Bobbi Brown counter. It was a nice serum though it only lasted about a week, not enough time to see any difference in my skin. Probably wouldn't purchase.
La Prairie Cellular Time Release Moisturiser
I got this 15ml sample from La Prairie for being one of their first 200 followers on Twitter. It was a nice moisturiser but I am not sure it is worth its price tag (around $115 for the 15ml sample).
Chanel Beaute Initiale Energizing Multi-Protection Cream
I really enjoyed using this moisturiser. It was very nourishing and I loved the scent. It is also great that it has an SPF15. I will come back to the Chanel skincare when I will get the benefits from anti-ageing ingredients.
Radox Cocoa Butter Shower Cream
A nice body wash that seemed to last forever! A nice scent that lathered nicely, I also liked that the scent lingered softly after using it. I probably won't repurchase mainly as I am trying to more towards more natural products.
Artiste Brush Cleaner
This is the second bottle I have used up this year. I find I am going through it quicker as I am wearing makeup almost everyday and therefore cleaning my brushes more often. I have already repurchased and will continue to do so.
Rexona Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant
This is the only deodorant that I use. It is amazing! If you have problems with sweat or odor I suggest you try it. I have already repurchased and will continue to do so.
So there is my empties for July. I am pretty happy with my effort. I just need to stop buying makeup so I can start using some of it up. :)
What products did you use up in July?
I was oohing over your Chanel skin care empties! I used to treat myself with Shiseido but had to become a bit more frugal last year. Things are looking up again so I'd love to buy some more luxe skin care in future :)ReplyDelete
Luxe skincare is such a treat to use. I must say since changing from the Chanel, I am missing it. Seems I liked it more than I realised. I think I will be buying it again sooner than I thought...Delete
I love that brush cleaner! I too am on my second.. or third lol, bottle!ReplyDelete
I think I am onto my 3rd bottle too :) It is so easy and conveinent :)Delete
I'm using the brush cleaner, it removes the makeup from y brushes really well, especially eyeshadow! Though I feel that my brushes aren't as soft as they used to be since I've started using them? Maybe the alcohol in it is stripping them.ReplyDelete
It is a great brush cleaner. I find it cleans my foundation brushes really well. I haven't noticed it drying out my brushes. Maybe because I use it mainly on my Real Techniques brushes and they are synthetic. :)Delete
