empties // Last year and 1/6th of this year

Hey guys, as you can see I have been hording a heck of a lot of empties seriously the box I have been keeping them in is overloading and well it's about time it got emptied. I have so much to talk about so i'm just going to get straight into it.
Body
So first of all we have Gorgeous by Gok Wan Body Wash, this is one of those alright products that's nice to use and smells okay but nothing too amazing or to go singing about. I got this a Christmas gift and it was nice to try but I don't think i'll be re-purchasing. Next we have The Daily Smooth Body Butter by Soap and Glory. It was odd to try a body butter out of a tube instead of a tub but it was a nice change. I liked this product it was moisturizing as well as smelling really great. But I don't think i'll buy any more at the moment as I have tons of body butter to get through! Also from Soap and Glory is The Scrub Of Your Life (x2). I really like this scrub and every time I get a little version of it I think why don't I just go and get the full size!  I really enjoy using this and will probably buy another! From the Body Shop I have got a full size Strawberry Shower Gel and a mini Mango Shower Gel. I loved the strawberry one it smelt amazing and really fruit but the mango one I didn't really get on with it smelt a bit too chemically which was weird. I probably what re-purchase because I have quite a few shower gels on the go! Finally I finished a 250ml bottle of Lush Snow Fairy. I did a review on it a while back in November, here, and I'm just in love with it! I have a 100ml bottle waiting to be used, it really upsets me that you can only get this around Christmas!

Face
So first of all I finished the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara. I really like this mascara I found it did a great job of making my lashes look longer and have more volume, but if too heavily applied it could be a little clumpy but that's my fault not theirs! I won't re-buy but that's only because I love trying new mascara's instead of just sticking to one! I also finished a Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. This was a great foundation for me in the summer when I was a little more tan and I found it stayed quite matte throughout the day which was impressive. But I had to say bye bye to it because as winter dawned I became all pale again and this no longer fitted my skin colour. I finished three sample moisturizers from Elizabeth Arden, Balance Me and Avenue. I really liked using all of this my favourite being the most expensive in Elizabeth Arden. I have plenty of moisturizers on the go so i'm not in need of a new buy but I would recommend all of them! I've also included just a few Montagne Jennesse Face Mask which I finished over the last few months. I love these mask and did a post on them here  I think they are great value for money and they really do make your skin feel amazing. Great for paper evenings! I also finished my make up wipes. Nothing to exciting to be said I just get whatever wipes are the cheapest at the time because I get through them ridiculously quick! In the corner there you can see I have finished a cute little sample from BareMinerals. Re-purchase? Well yes! I got there foundation kit for Christmas and shall be putting a post up soon about it. 

Hair
Only four little mini's in this category  Thank god after all that writing above #dedication. So first of all we have the Dove Colour Radiance Conditioner. This is the conditioner that got me back into conditioning my hair. I stopped conditioning my hair thinking that I didn't need to but when I started again I realized the difference it made and I was hooked again! I didn't buy this one I got a V05 one but kudos to this! Next are two shampoo's The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture and Mark Hill Sexy Straight. I hated the Body Shop one, sorry but the smell was just plain awful I was glad to finish the bottle. However the Mark Hill one was actually really nice and it did give my hair a subtle shine which I liked. The only thing I really don't like is that fact it's called 'Sexy Straight' I have a thing with that word along with 'Bird' stupid words. But anyways overall it was a nice product to try. Last but not least is the Osmo Berber Oil. This was unbelievably good. I found love with this, it nourished my hair, gave it a glossy shine and made it smell amazing! I will be buying this again when I have a bit more money! What a positive note to end on!
Kudos to you if you read all of that. I know there was a lot. I promise that I will become more consistent with updating my empties because no one needs a post this big in their lives ;). I hope you enjoyed this and we're interested in seeing what I've used up? IDK okay. Have you finished any products that you really love? Or maybe really hate? Let us know!
