July Beauty Empties

It's that time again. Here are all the beauty products that I have used up this month. Clockwise from top left:

Nivea Body Lotion Irresistibly Smooth - Shea Butter
This has a lovely creamy texture that is great for dry skin, and a nice fresh and clean smell that doesn't over power perfume. 

Simple Facial Toner
This is a lovely every day facial toner that doesn't dry out skin and removes traces of dirt that face wash leaves behind. Great for sensitive skin.

Mitchum Advanced Control 48 Hour Deodorant - Waterlily
The nozzle gives a powerful shot leaving you feeling shower fresh. No white marks either - bonus!

Elasta QP Shampoo For Relaxed Hair
This stuff is is fab. I only need to shampoo my hair a few times with this to get it squeaky clean, and leaves my hair feeling relatively tangle free. I would never skip conditioner though!

Mitchum Advanced Control 48 Hour Deodorant - Powder Fresh
It's been a hot  month so unsurprisingly I have worked my way through 2 cans of Mitchum deodorant. This one has a gorgeous baby powder scent.

World of Curls Oil Sheen Spray
A must have for anyone with relaxed hair. This stuff keeps the ends of my hair moist and breakage free. Love, love, love!

Original Source Mint and Tea Tree Shower Gel
This is my go to summer shower gel. The mint and tea tree leave a tingly feeling on the skin which is perfect for cooling you down on a hot morning, especially when you have to brave a sweaty commute to work.

Dr Miracle's Hot Grow Hair and Scalp Treatment
It has taken me almost a year to finish this tub. I use it about twice a week on my scalp to prevent it from getting dry. Similar to tea tree, this stuff leaves a slight tingly feeling for a few seconds after it's applied. I really like it and have already re-purchased.

Aussie Luscious Long Leave In Conditioner
This has a light coconut smell and leaves my hair tangle free ready to blow dry. It lasts ages as well.

Sunshine & Family

This weekend I was uber excited to catch up with my family. It had been a while since I had visited and I wanted to make it special so we decided to have a picnic. Lucky for us, the weather was absolutely amazing. Sunshine plus family is a very happy combination. Here is a pic of me getting a kiss from my gorgeous niece. I love that a bright pink tutu is casual day wear for her!

On to the serious business of food, and man there was lots of it...

And no picnic would be complete without bubbles!

And here is my sister, ever the diva!

It was lovely being able to catch up with my sister and have a good gossip whilst my niece and nephew larked around

I hope the good weather continues so we can have more days like this!

June Beauty Empties

I'm quite good at using up my beauty products before buying new stuff. I find that this not only saves money, but it also means I don't have shed loads of products taking up lots of space. This months beauty empties are:

L'Oreal Fresh Essentials Gel Wash
Armani White Diamond
Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara
Mitchum Deodorant - Powder Fresh
Collection Cosmetics Fast Stroke Eye Liner
Imperial Leather Skin Kind Body Wash - Raspberry and Lime Blossom
Vaseline - Creme Brule
Nivea Q10 Body Firming Lotion

My favourite beauty product this month is the Imperial Leather Skin Kind Body Wash in Raspberry and Lime Blossom. It has a lovely light almost perfume like smell, and tiny exfoliating bubbles that burst on your skin. The bottle was huge so it lasted a long time as well. Since buying it on special offer, I am struggling to find it. I will definitely be re-purchasing.
