August Empties!

Hi guys hope you are all well! I'm having a bit of a nightmare today, hardly slept last night and now just heard that Creamfields has been cancelled where my boyfriend is at the moment! He doesn't have a phone on him as he didn't want to lose his iPhone and I've heard that the car parks have flooded so some people can't start their cars...Trying not to worry but if you're anything like me you know girls are definite worriers!

But blogging is definitely the best way to distract yourself and I thought I'd do my first and rather early August Empties post. I've got to admit there isn't that many products that I've used up as I'm really rubbish at finishing a product...

1) Dove Go Fresh Pomegranate and Lemon Verbent Scent Deodorant

I really like the scent of this, it smells fruity and makes you feel fresh. Dove also seems to be permanently on offer in Superdrug or Boots too, this is originally priced at £3.29 in Superdrug but is currently £1.63 here. I find that Dove is my favourite deodorant as it keeps my skin non-irritated as it can be a little sensitive. I'd definitely repurchase this but I'm currently using their Lemon deodorant.

2) Elvive Nutrigloss Shampoo

This was on offer when I bought it and I think it was about £1.30 so a bit of a bargain considering how big the bottle is and lasts you (I wash my hair everyday.) The normal retail price is £3.99 which I probably wouldn't go for to be honest. It definitely cleans your hair and smells OK but it isn't a miracle product at all. For the price I'd really rather go for Aussie!

3) Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Scrub

I first came across Soap and Glory about two years ago after giving the shower gel to one of my friends at the time. I went into her bathroom one day and could smell the shower gel almost immediately and was hooked! I bought this sample size (£2.50 from Boots) a long time ago and I love it. The scrub is made up of shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar - ingredients that make it smell divine to be honest. I've just bought three more Soap and Glory products, making use of Boots 3 for 2 offer and repurchased the scrub. The full size is £7 but is literally huge. Funny fact about this product: my boyfriend used it once and loved it so much that I bought him the sample size too...! Haha!

4) Body Shop Mango Body Scrub

This is another great body scrub. If I had to choose between Soap and Glory and this one, I'd probably choose Soap and Glory just because I find the scent of this a bit overwhelming at times. It does leave your skin super smooth though and is especially good before shaving. I'd repurchase a Body Shop scrub definitely but maybe a different one!

5)  Elvive Nutrigloss Crystal Conditioner

This is priced at £3.99 currently at Superdrug and I have to be honest I probably wouldn't pay full price for it. Again this huge bottle was on offer when I purchased it. It makes my hair feel soft but I don't really agree that it adds any shine. I far prefer the Dove Intensive Repair Conditioner that I'm using currently!

6) Radox Shower Smoothies Island Indulgence

This product is one that I loved the scent of at the start but was a bit bored of by the end. The main ingredients are passion fruit and papaya but there are also aronia berries that act as an exfoliator. I don't think the berries really work as an exfoliator but I enjoyed the scent and consistency of this. It cost me £2.95 from Boots but looking on their website it looks like their Buy One Get One Free currently, great deal! I think I'd repurchase another shower smoothie but in a different "flavour" instead, the Soul Soother one looks good.
