Beauty | August Empties

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks | Batiste Dry Shampoo Sassy & Daring Wild | Sanctuary Spa Mum To Be Tummy Soothing Bath Soak | Bumble & Bumble Mending Shampoo

I used this daily throughout my pregnancy. No, it doesn't stop stretch marks, nothing will unfortunately. But it does help the bump feel moisturised and smell amazing. :)
Would I Recommend? Yes, if you haven't already tried this yummy cocoa butter goodness, you should! :)
Would I Repurchase? Yes, it feels and smells yummy!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Sassy & Daring Wild (£2.99/Boots)
As we currently don't have a shower, washing my hair in the bath whilst pregnant was an absolute nightmare!! So dry shampoo soon became my best friend!! :) It's fab for refreshing my hair in between washes, and also gives great volume!
Would I Recommend? Yes, does exactly what it says on the... can! :)
Would I Repurchase? Yep, I'm working my way through the range :)

Sanctuary Spa Mum To Be Tummy Soothing Bath Soak (£12.50 for Pamper Bag/Boots)
This was in a pamper bag I received as a Secret Stork gift from a girl in my pregnancy group. I didn't really use it but popped it in Bradley's bath instead. It made his skin nice and soft. 
Would I Recommend? I'm unsure how much this is separately, but the set is a lovely gift idea!
Would I Repurchase? Probably not, unless I was buying the set for a pregnant friend.

Bumble & Bumble Mending Shampoo (£23.00/Boots)
Now, as you can imagine, at this price I was expecting big things, and if you read my review a while back you'll have seen that I didn't think that much to it. It wasn't worth the money in my opinion. James ended up using it instead. :)
Would I Recommend? Nah, you'll get better results from a much cheaper shampoo, don't waste your money!
Would I Repurchase? Nope! 

& Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Scrub | Cussons Carex Complete Bubble Gum Handwash | Sanctuary Spa Mum To Be 2 in 1 Moisturising Shower Cream | Benefit 10 Highlighting & Bronzing Blusher Duo | Sanctuary Spa Resurface & Refine Ultra Polish | MAC Brush Cleanser | Dove Go Fresh Cucumber Roll On Deodorant

& Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Scrub (£7.00)
I love love love this!! Definitely one of THE best scrubs I've ever used!! It's a fab 'scrubby scrub' and also lathers up into a body wash too. It's lush! Read my full review here
Would I Recommend? Yes yes yes!!
Would I Repurchase? Yes. They're only available to purchase online at the mo, but I'll be repurchasing in the future as a treat to myself, and I fancy trying out other fragrances. :)

Cussons Carex Complete Bubble Gum Handwash (90p/Tesco)
These little beauties are an amazing invention, and I am rest assured that my 10 year old is washing his hands after using the bathroom when I have a bottle of this on the go!
Would I Recommend? Yes, especially if you have young children!! Or even if not, it smells amazing! :)
Would I Repurchase? Yes, I need to get to Tescos and fast! 

Benefit 10 Bronzing & Highlighting Blusher Duo (£23.50/No longer available)
This has been discontinued unfortunately, I'm not too sure why as it was one of my favourites from the Benefit blusher range, it gives a lovely shimmery finish or can be used as a contour kit too. 
Would I Recommend? Unfortunately it is now unavailable. 
Would I Repurchase? I actually bought a dupe from W7!

Sanctuary Spa Resurface & Refine Ultra Polish (£12.00/Boots)
I had a sample tube of this so only got a couple of applications from it, but it was great. It was super scrubby, which I love! It specialises in reducing the look of 'chicken skin' which I do suffer from, and I noticed a difference straight away!
Would I Recommend? Yes, particularly if you suffer from chicken skin!
Would I Repurchase? I'm definitely thinking about buying a full size!!

MAC Brush Cleanser (£11.00)
I go through bottles of this stuff! I'm yet to find something as good, but I'm on the lookout for a cheaper brush cleaner that works just as good. If you know of any, PLEASE point me in the right direction!! 
Would I Recommend? Yes, its a fab cleanser, my brushes feel soft, fresh and extremely clean after use.
Would I Repurchase? Always.

Dove Go Fresh Cucumber Roll On Deodorant (£2.30/Boots)
I always turn to Dove roll ons as they just work, simple! They keep me fresh all day, smell lovely and are really kind to my underarms.
Would I Recommend? I haven't used a deodorant as good, so yes!
Would I Repurchase? Yes.

So, those are the products I finished this month.
Are any of them your favourites?
