Monthly Empties - August 2012

It saddens me a little that I haven't completed all that many products
and I'm not really all that sure why that is as I feel I have made more effort to
be frugal and complete products now than I have in the past.
Not to worry, I will simply have to try harder next month!

Anyway on to what I finished and if I will be repurchasing...

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment
I had a little scalp upset this month so I haven't been able to use quite as often as I would
have liked but two full pots in a month isn't too shabby and I do feel it works wonderfully well.
I have noticed a difference in both my hairs length and condition and can not recommend it enough
for those who are trying to grow their hair!

Yep, I may have lost the cap...

My Face Cosmetics Foundation
I really do like this foundation and found it to work wonderfully well with my oily skin
while offering a high level of coverage.
As much I enjoyed using this product I will be waiting until I have worked my way through
my foundation stash before repurchasing...perhaps next summer?

Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover
By far my favourite nail polish remover,
it removes polish without any effort and helps to keep my nails long and strong.
For less than £2 you really can not beat it and it's one that I will repurchase
time and time again!

Wet Ones Be Cute
I don't tend to buy wipes targeted specifically for hand use but I was caught short 
in town after nibbling my lunch and the only thing I could source immediately was
packs of Wet Ones!
While they cleanse hands just fine they are a little too strongly scented for my taste
and I would prefer a larger pack, 12 wipes just isn't great value considering the cost me over £3!

Paris Hilton EDP
I have had this mini bottle of perfume in my bag for what feels like eternity
and have been rationing myself so it doesn't run out, don't get me wrong it is as cheap as chips (around £8 a bottle) but I have numerous full bottles of scent that must be used up before I add any more additions
to my collection!

Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Intensive Hair Mask
I seem to go through so much more conditioner than shampoo,
is that the case for most of you as well?
This mask works amazing well on thick, coarse hair which mine is at the moment,
I have been using this as a daily conditioner and have found it to deeply nourish
and hydrate without weighing down my hair.
If you a similar hair type to myself I highly suggest picking up a pot or two!

Have you finished many products this month?

  1. I went to get the Lee Stafford today and my local Boots don't stock it! what's that all about!! xxx

    1. That is so annoying :( if it makes you feel any better it happens to me all the time haha!

  2. I go through more conditioner than shampoo too, I guess it's because it doesn't lather so much maybe? I love the Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover, it's really good! x

    1. That's actually a good point :) I never really thought of it that way.

  3. I havent tried the hair growth stuff but I think Ill pick up a pot tomorrow :)

    1. I hope you do, i'd love to hear how you get on :)

  4. Finishing stuff always gives me a great sense of accomplishment :)

  5. I seem to eat conditioner, I go through that much! Mind you, I do have a heck of a lot of hair, aha! x

    1. Haha that's how I feel too! I blink and it's gone!

  6. Lee Stafford products look good. Have you tried any of the others in the range?

    1. I have I tried the matching shampoo and conditioner for the hair growth range, I like it but didn't love them. I also tried the lightening spray which was good and lightened my hair rather well at the time :)

  7. i love the lee stafford hair growth treatment, but like yourself i haven't been able to use it properly because my scalps decided to hate me lately :( was wondering if you could recommend any products that have helped you? would be much appreciated! x

    1. Ah so sorry to hear that :( I'm using T-gel shampoo which seems to be working really well but if you are looking for something less medicated perhaps baby shampoo or for something natural what about black tar soap? I hope your scalp heals soon!

    2. thank you :) i'm currently using baby shampoo at the moment but i think i'll try the t-gel it doesn't get any better. thanks so much, you've been really helpful x

    3. No problem :) hope it works for you!

  8. My conditioner always runs out before my shampoo - and I've noticed the bottles are always about 50mls less than the shampoo! We're being conned! ;) xo

  9. but does not make it greasy the mask?

  10. Never buy wet ones. Buy some baby wipes. Cheaper and don't dry out as fast.

  11. I'm considering getting one of those Herbal Essences hair masks, but I'm wondering how well does that one 'tousle' your hair? I've tried that particular shampoo and it did nothing in the way of tousling my hair.

    Also what does the perfume smell like? Seems interesting at just £8!

    Great post :)

  12. So many positive things to say about all of these products - I wish I was as happy with all the products I use

  13. I was going to pick up some more Lee Stafford treatment...they're on offer; three Lee Stafford products for £12! x

  14. I actually liked the Paris Hilton perfume! My little brother got it me for Christmas years ago. I also went to get the Lee Stafford treatment the other cause you recommended it but it was sold out and I was gutted because of the offer Boots had on! Gonna try and get it today! x

  15. This Lee Stafford range looks good I might get a pot to try out! I was also looking at the lightening spray but I'm worried about the peroxide aspect (I've never used peroxide) but I think it will look good as my hair is dark blonde but I just want to give it a nice boost! x

  16. I adore the Paris Hilton perfume, it reminds me of when I was younger and always cheers me up :)

  17. Great empties, i really wantt try the hair products :)
