Empties - August 2013

I used up 7 items in August including a couple of things that have been hanging around nearly empty for way too long.
Nivea In Shower Rich Body Lotion
This is a fantastic body lotion I picked up in the Priceline sale in August that I absolutely loved.  You apply in the shower, rinse off and that's it - you're moisturised!  No need to apply moisturiser after a shower and wait for it to dry/sink in.  Perfect for the colder days.  My full review is here!
John Frieda Conditioner
I coloured my hair using the John Frieda Precision Foam Colour in August and loved it.  By far the best home hair colour I've used.  This is the conditioner that came with it and it's a great size that lasted me quite a long time.  Nice and hydrating without being too heavy.
Akin Lavender & Geranium Body Moisturiser
I love to use this lavender scented moisturiser before bed as Lavender is known to have a calming effect and help you sleep.  This is a lovely rich moisturiser that smells beautiful.
St Ives Apricot Scrub - Fresh Skin
I'm a huge fan of the St Ives Scrub but the one I usually use is the Renew & Firm and is a lot gentler.  This one has a lot more granules that give a deeper exfoliation.  Probably more recommended for someone with an oilier skin type as opposed to my dry skin.  I used this very gently on my face or all over my body for a great exfoliation.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat in 2
This is a beautiful under eye concealer/brightener that I loved using.  This is a hugely hyped product and apparently one sells every few seconds or something crazy like that.  In my honest opinion I don't think it's worth the $55 or so it retails for.  It does do a great job but there are better brightening concealers out there for a cheaper price.  Yep I said it!
Batiste Dry Shampoo in Tropical
Holy grail product that I use all the time.  Tropical isn't my favourite scent but it does the job and that's what matters to me.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil
This is a cult French product that I purchased after receiving a sample bottle in a beauty box.  This product smells divine and leaves me skin feeling so hydrated and soft.  I used this on my face as a night-time moisturiser and all over my body when it was feeling particularly dry.  It's on the pricier side at $24.95 for a 50ml but I would definitely purchase this again.

  1. Hi Kayte. Woolworths have a special on Batiste at the moment, 2 for $12. I almost picked 2 up yesterday, but already have two in my cupboard. I like that John Frieda conditioner too. Good job finishing all those great products last month. Have fun buying some new ones :D

    1. Thanks for the tip Susannah I'll be sure to pick some up in my weekly shop :)

  2. I recently purchased the Nivea In Shower Rich Body Lotion and cant wait to use it! It's a great concept and great for those who are too lazy to moisturise separately.


Feel free to comment or ask any questions. I would love to hear from you x
