August Empties: Products I've Used Up & Mini Reviews!

Hello beauties!

This month also, I have some new "empties" to share with you! These kind of posts can be useful because you also get quick reviews and recommendations about recently tested products.

I have 5 products that I recently used up, to show in this post, so let's start!

1. Clarins HydraQuench Cream

I have to say I'm sad to have used up this cream! I love Clarins for my face care, their products are just amazing and suit my skin's needs perfectly!

This hydra quench cream was very hydrating and soothing for my dry skin. It was the perfect makeup base and I used it mostly as a day cream, with a few drops of Clarins self tanning drops.

It was perfection!

I'd definitely like to repurchase this product in the future.

2. Garnier Micelar Water With Argan Oil

I heard great reviews about this particular micellar water, so I was very keen on trying it out. I have to say, I was left a bit disappointed. I mean, it's not bad, but definitely not great either!

I liked that it contains argan oil, so it's gently taking off your make up and nourishing your skin at the same time.

It did its job okay and the price was quite good too (cca 5 €, for 400 ml) but I tried better micellar waters in the past (such as Bioderma) so I'll be sticking with those.

3. Kerastase Elixir K Ultime

Another product I wish I didn't use up just yet... I love it, and this is probably the second or third time around that I've repurchased it. I would buy it more often but...dang, the price tag of this product is just so high!

It does last you a very long time, but still, it's sort of a little "investment" every time you're purchasing this product!

It just makes your hair look and feel great.

I first tried this product back in the 2011. when it first launched and our love affair lasts ever since.

I even made a video review about it back then, and you can check it out here.

4. Palmolive Shower Gel Karité Butter

This product isn't one of those special beauty products that I'm sad when they're finished. It's just a shower gel that I often reach for because Palmolive makes great selection of different scents and also because it's very inexpensive.

I like the scent and the creamy formula of this one. It feels nourishing and pampering on my body and I'm definitely going to go for another Palmolive shower gel in the future.

5. Testanera (Schwarzkopf) Gliss Hair Repair

These leave- in conditioners by Testanera (Schwarzkopf) are certainly among the best ones! I couldn't even imagine trying to detangle my hair without this "miracle" product!

I tried many different ones from this "Gliss" line and I can say that I like them all. The selection is a bit limited here in Italy (I managed to come across just this "Liquid Silk" one), but when I'm in Croatia, I can purchase different ones, with other cool ingredients, such as keratin or a mixture of precious oils, etc.

Yes, I'm definitely buying this again...and again, and again!

Those were my 5 empties for this month!

Let me know which products did you use up recently and is there anything you'd like to recommend?
