August Empties

I cannot even begin to believe it is September already (well, it will be tomorrow, heh) which means lots of warm winter clothes, bonfires and Christmas parties! My favourite time of year!
Here's what I used up this month:

Boots Natural Collection Wild Strawberry Body Spray, £2. 
I adore this scent SO MUCH! I get so many compliments when I am wearing it, at work every comments how lovely I smell and ask where I got my perfume from! When I tell them its a body spray for £2 no-one believes me! I love the scent of this, I have worn it for a while now and repurchased it a handful of time, I will definitely pick it up again. It is very sweet, so if you love sweet and fruit scents this is definitely something to go and sniff.

Sex In The City Lust EDP, 100 ml. Around the £4-5 mark.
I had this in a gift set I received at Christmas, but like most ladies I received a big bunch of beauties and smellies over Xmas I only began using this in the start of July. The name of this perfume has nothing to do with the series Sex and the City by the way! Its a very girly, floral scent. My sister has the pink 'love' scent, which is much more sweeter and fruity than this. Unfortunately it didn't seem to last long, but alas, was still very refreshing and nice anyway. I liked this, I am unsure where you can buy these from now (I know you used to be able to get them from Body care and Home Bargains) but I will pick one up when I see one. 

Nivea Double Effect 48h Anti Perspirant, £2
Heres something a bit boring, but I used it up this month! Its just your average anti-perspirant. It isn't my favourite as I feel it leaves white marks on clothes (sounds gross I know, apologies!) so I wont be buying this again. 

Mark Hill Holiday Hair Beach To Bar Dry Shampoo, £5.99
I actually won this in an amazing give away last month, loved it so much I have already brought a replacement! It is everything you want in a dry shampoo. It doesn't leave your hair greasy, but very refreshed and is brilliant for back-combing! 

The Pink Cow Mint Candy Bath and Shower Gel, £2
I picked this up on a whim last month as I adore mint scents. I had never heard of the company brand before, but thought I would give it a whirl. It was absolutely gorgeous! It leaves your skin feeling very soft and smells divine! I got it from Home Bargains, but when I shopped there a week ago they no longer stocked it. I have had a little research online and cannot find anywhere else that stocks it, if you know do let me know! (I think they rebranded their name to The Little Bubble Co). 

So...? Fab EDT 30ml,  £5.99
If you have been reading my blog a while now, you will already know how obsessed I am with this scent! It is the sweetest, nicest, very 'immature' scent ever but I adore it. I already have two backs -ups of this in storage! 

Impulse Love Puzzle, Limited Edition Body Spray, £2
Another smelly this month! I bought this as it is fairly new and I hadn't tried it, it reminded me a little of palmaviolets sweets! Its very nice and does the job, so I would probably buy again.

Thats it lovelies, another monthly empties post done! What was your favourite product of August?
What are you looking forward to for the rest of the year?
