July Empties


Hey Lovelies,
I hope you are all well! I know I usually always post my empties at the beginning of every month, but this month I somehow how managed to misplace the bag in which I was keeping all of my empties. I thought I'd thrown it out but then I found it again amongst the recycling, so here are my very late July empties! I've not used up a massive amount in July as you can see, but there is still a good selection of products so read on to find out what I think of them all.

Nivea Hydration Express Body Lotion 
I love this body lotion! Not only does it smell great but it also absorbs into your skin in under a minute. I was using this about 3 times a week and it left my skin feeling soft for over 24 hours, so there's even no need to apply it every day. Will definitely be repurchasing! 
Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Wash
I really wish that Bath and Body Works would reopen again in the UK because every product I try from them is amazing, their Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Wash being no exception. This does not only smell absolutely lovely but it also contains shea and aloe vera which moisturise your skin, leaving it feeling soft even if you don't apply a moisturiser after your shower. 
Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff Ease Hair Treatment
Now I always feel like I'm the only person in the world who's not a fan of Lush. I dislike the smell of the products as well as the packaging. Having said that, this was still a really good hair mask that improved the condition of my hair and left it looking smooth and sleek. You apply this product to you hair when it's dry, leave it on for about 20 minutes then rinse it out and shampoo and condition as normal. I'm not sure if I would repurchase this product though, simply because I'm not really a fan of Lush and rarely ever go in there.
L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil 
Usually I'm a massive fan of L'Oreal products, but sadly I didn't like this hair oil as much as I like some of their other products. It just didn't absorb into my hair as nicely as I hoped it would and didn't really improve the condition of my hair either. Recently I've bought the Moroccan Oil Treatment (review) which I do prefer so I don't think I will be repurchasing the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil any time soon. I know a lot of people rave about this product though, so perhaps my hair is just too damaged for this to really work on me. 
Bourjois Express Eye Makeup Remover 
Usually I buy the Garnier 2 in 1 Make Up Remover, but when I spotted this in Superdrug a while ago I decided to give it a try and I'm so glad that I did! This is one of those eye make up removers you shake up before using and it works really well at taking off heavy eye make up, stubborn mascara and gel eyeliner. It's not too expensive either so if you've not already tried this I can highly recommend it!
Origins Cheeks and Balances Frothy Face Wash 
This is one of Origins best selling products and I can easily see why. You only need a really small amount of this face wash to work up a rich larger which cleanses your face beautifully. Since running out of this product I have purchased a Nivea face wash gel, and even though it is nice the 2 just don't compare. The Origins foaming facial wash left my skin feeling squeaky clean the way no other face wash I have ever used before did. The next Origins face wash on my list which I want to try is  their A Perfect World face wash.
 Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara
I've done an entire review on this mascara which you can read by clicking here. I enjoyed using this product and it works really well at lengthening your lashes and adding volume to them. I got about 4 months use out of this which is pretty good and I would definitely repurchase it, though I have to admit with mascara I'm not very loyal and tend to change between brands quite regularly. 
Barry M Clear Mascara and Eye Brow Definer 
This is a very good, cheap and cheerful clear brow gel that keeps your eyebrows in place throughout the day and does not leave a white residue on your brows. Excuse how disgusting it looks in the picture though, I think that's what usually happened when brow powder and brow gel get mixed together.
Well that's it for my July Empties, and sorry again for the delay in posting them! What products have you recently used up?
