July Empties

How is it already August?! The last couple of months just seem to have flown by. I realised the other day that I have almost been working for 8 months now! I can't believe it. I also can't believe how much I have been lacking on the blogging front lately. I have all these things I want to blog about but there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day. How does everyone find time?

Anyone onto my empties for July. A bit of a mixed bunch for the month but empties are empties. And as I have said before - I am hopeless at finishing up products. Though I do have a nice bit of pan porn happening with my MAC Mineralise Skinfinish powder at the moment. Hopefully it will feature in an empties post soon.

Lush Big Sea Salt Shampoo
I blame Chelsea from Confessions of a Beauty Addict for my original purchase of this. Her review had me intrigued. I am so glad I purchased it. This shampoo is amazing as a clarifying shampoo. I use it around twice a week to give my hair a deep clean. It cleans away any product build up and the sea salt is like a massage. It smells lovely too - like a clean ocean. My Mum even uses this occasionally. Already repurchased. 

IGA Signature Shampoo Conditioner Everyday 2 in 1
I do not use this on my hair, I used it to deep clean my make up brushes. It was quite good for that but I am not sure if it is the best way. How do you clean your brushes? This got used up quicker as it disappeared into the shower (from the cupboard under the sink) and my brother was using it. It didn't do his hair any favours. May or may not repurchase. Honestly I only purchased it in the first place as it was the only 2 in 1 at the local IGA. 

Imperial Leather Foamburst Shower Gel in Tropical Sunset
I really love this body wash. It smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling hydrated (and dreaming of a tropical holiday). This is the second time I have purchased this. My only problem is I go through it very quickly. This can lasted me only about a fortnight. I probably use too much though... Would probably repurchase in the future.

Lush Honey I Washed the Kids Shower Gel
Another favourite from Lush. I love the strong honey scent of this and the cleansing yet moisturising feeling it provides. I have already repurchased though it has to fight Snow Fairy for its place in the shower at the moment... 

Eve Lom Cleanser
I received this cleanser sample with a order from Mecca Cosmetica and didn't use it for ages. I finally decided to take the plunge after reading some great reviews. It is a balm like cleanser that you use with a muslin cloth. This sample was enough for two uses and I quite liked it. A little different from my usual cleansers but it left my skin feeling lovely. It also had an interesting but nice smell - ingredients include clove oil, eucalyptus oil, chamomile oil and cocoa butter. I would consider purchasing this but it is pretty pricey. 

Oralife Peppermint Lip Treatment
This ended up in the bin about a week earlier than it should have but the cat decided to play with it and then the dogs had a chew on it. Luckily it was pretty much empty anyway. This is my absolute favourite lip balm when my lips are feeling especially dry which is most days. It adds instant hydration and comfort. It is perfect for a night time treatment too. I have everyone in my family using this these days. Highly recommend. I have already repurchased and will continue to do so. 

So there are my empties for the month. I have set myself a bit of a challenge this month and I must blog at least ten times in August. Hopefully I can do that!

What did you empty in July?


  1. I emptied my BIG shampoo this month (or last month, shall I say) too! You've encouraged me to get my post up, haha xoxo

  2. Some great empties! I'm a huge fan of BIG too, it's amazing! xx

  3. I'm glad you liked the BIG shampoo! It's a favourite of mine :) (as you know!) x

    1. Haha yes I do! So glad you blogged about it so it could become a favourite of mine too! :)

  4. I want to try the BIG shampoo :) it sounds really good!

  5. That Lush shampoo has me intrigued! I think I need to get me some!

  6. Cheeky animals chewing on your lip balm!!!

    I might join you with the 10 post challenge. Life has certainly been getting in the way over the past few months, with work, exercise and travel. It's getting harder to find a few spare hours to blog and read blogs!

    1. My dogs have chewed on too many lip balms to count. Even those Nivea ones in tins! I have to stop leaving them on my bedside table.

      I just find it so hard to sit and blog lately. I wish travel was a reason for lack of posts though. Jealous of your trip! :)
