I've been busy... My August 2015. empties!

I told you before in my August Favourites.... I am extremely late with this post but here it is. And that doesn't mean that you will not be reading about my September favourites very soon. This is just my way of saying goodbye to some August comrades.

You can definitely see a patern in all of my summer posts. The perfect word would be simplicity! High temperatures and well deserved holidays left a mark on my beauty routine, so you will only see a few necessary products, some in the lights of summer vibes, some are casualties of  my mother's need to pack our showers at the seaside full, with enough body gels and shampoos to keep clean the majority of our relatives.

Although I mentioned L'Occitane Verbena shower gel as my favourite, I didn't take it with me on my holidays. As I already said, I knew that there will be more than enough in our summer house. That is how I got to hang around with Fa PINK Passion shower gel. There is not a lot to say about it. It has a floraly smell, a bit too strong for my taste but it doesn't stay on the skin. And the other I*found*it*in*my*shower product, that I also finished is Schauma Push-up Volume shampoo. I actually have tried this one before and liked it. It is a good choice for greasy, straight hair. Not the most organic/natural choice but most people, who aren't so into this whole beauty community thing, will like it! In my opinion of course.

Another two seaside choices that are completely gone are from after sun care range. Both of them are Balea products, very reasonably priced and they both do a great job! The only difference is that one was more liquidy, spray type product and the other one has a gel consistency. In every case and once again, great work Balea and DM!

And then there are my heavily raved about face products. I am risking to bore you since I mention them so much but is there a better way to show your love for a product than having it in your empties all the time? I love them and that is why you see them over and over again. And the stars of the show are Olival's face toner from their immortelle line and Caudalie Beauty Elixir. The toner is great, acts well on my combination skin, it is made in Croatia and I will definitely buy it again. In fact, I already have a backup. If you get a chance to try it, please do. And Caudalie Beauty Elixir? A miracle in a bottle. Also a staple of mine which you really have to try if your skin is combination to oily and your pores are pronounced.

Then there is body care. Also only old mentions and favourites. A bottle of Balea In Shower body milk for dry skin and Nivea Powder Touch roll- on. Should I even say something about them? They are great, they appear practically in all of my empties posts, one of them took care of my skin when temperatures were so high that I couldn't imagine putting anything else on it, and the other one helped me smell nice and clean when the temperatures were just below boiling.

Lastly, there is a bottle of ESI Aloe Vera juice that I regularly drink and can't recommend enough. Great for your body, health and in the end beauty. Another bottle of it will be finished in September, I bought it countless times before and will most definitely buy it again!

And that is about it. No makeup items, which is completely understandable since I pretty much only used LRP Anthelios XL tinted fluid with SPF 50 to even my skin tone. Do I need to say more? :)

What about you? How are you doing with your empties? Maybe preparing a post about them?

Tell me...

Love, beautyandbrains007
