August 2013 empties: No7, Soap and Glory, Cocoa Brown, L'Oreal, Bourjois, Avene, Aussie

Hey loves!
So as you can see, I'm well behind on my empties posts! I have photos for August and September, I need to take October's then I'll be up to date... Phew. Here are the products I used up in August.
Bodycare:
No7 Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion Body Exfoliator
I used this pre-tanning to give my knees, feet, hands and elbows a good scrub before covering myself in moisturiser. I loved the sand-like texture and it also helped to reduce the keratosis on my arms as well.
Jergens Naturals Aloe Soothing Body Moisturiser
I like to use a thick body butter on the tougher areas of my skin, but I used this on my calves, thighs, stomach, arms and boobs. The texture was really soft and silky and a little went a long way. I would definitely recommend it.
Soap & Glory Girligo Body Moisturiser Spray
I used this moisturiser spray when I was feeling lazy! It was really simple and easy to use and only took about a minute to moisturise my whole body with it.
Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan
I'm an absolute tan fiend and must have about 30 bottles of wash off tans, gradual tans and overnight tans from brands as cheap as St Moritz to as expensive as Vita Liberata and St Tropez. I have to be completely honest though when I say I have found my new holy grail tan! I love it so much that my friends, family and friend's family have all been persuaded to get some too. I'm so pushed for time that the one hour aspect of it really appealed to me. You apply the tinted mousse all over your body with a mitt, leave it on for an hour (I put a dressing gown on and curl my hair in this time) before showering it off. Hello beautiful, natural, golden tan that lasts for days. Go get it from Primark ASAP!
Skincare:
Avene Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water
I've probably gone on about this enough already but I went on a press trip to Avene in the south of France and absolutely fell in love with the brand while I was there. This thermal spring water is ideal for a mid-morning refresh, for setting your make-up or for using a primer. I use it for everything and I couldn't be without it.
Botanics Microdermabrasion Face Scrub
I try and scrub my face twice a week but I've been a bit slack with it recently. It definitely helps give my skin a fresh-faced glow and the tiny beads work to give my face a good, deep exfoliation.
Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make-up Remover
This must be the 100th time I've purchased this -I love it! I've tried high-end ones including Clarins, Clinique and Chanel but this one still works a treat. If you're running low on a higher-end one it's definitely worth giving this a go!
Nivea Essentials Refreshing Toner
I didn't really notice much difference in my skin after using this. I'd recommend the Liz Earle Skin Boost Tonic instead!
La Roche Posay Micellar Solution
I wasn't a fan of this Micellar water at all to be honest. It didn't make my skin feel amazing afterwards like I would have thought it would from the price! I'd recommend the Caudalie Micellar water instead as it's better than any I've tried, including the Bioderma.
Hair:
Batiste XXL Volume Dry Shampoo
I'm not a massive dry shampoo user but when I do need it, I love to use this! It cleans hair while giving it loads of volume. Amazing.
Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner
This has been a holy grail hair product for me for about ten years now! I use it every time I wash my hair and it leaves it feeling silky smooth and smelling delicious. Would recommend in a heartbeat.
Vo5 Treat Me Right Hair Masque
I picked this up in the bargain aisle of Tesco for about two quid and I blimmin' love it. I spend a bomb on intensive hair masques but this did the job at a quarter of the price. I love the scent of this too!
Make-up:

L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim

I have definitely found a holy grail item in this product! I used to swear by the Soap & Glory Supercat liner but this is loads better. It's perfect for creating a cat-eye flick or lining eyes beneath the waterline and lasts all day.

Bourjois Paris 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation

This must be my first EVER foundation empty! I've had this foundation for a couple of years now and it's been my go-to foundation so many times. It only offers medium coverage but it's the finish that sets it apart from the rest. It makes skin look healthy, dewy, AWAKE - very important for my 6am commute!

What did you use up this month?

Love,

Sophia
