July Empties!

Skintimate Strawberry Tangerine Twist Works great; smells better. Will repurchase after I use the shaving gels I got in a razor combo pack.
Avon Foot Works Cherry Ice Foot Scrub This was okay for the $1.99 I bought it for. I didn't notice any significant improvement in the softness of my feet. Will not repurchase.
Yes to Tomatoes Trouble-free Facial Wash This smelled pretty good and didn't irritate my skin or make me break out. It didn't foam up, though, probably because it doesn't have any of those sulfates or whatevers that aren't good for your body. I LIKE MY FOAMY FACE WASH. Will not repurchase.
Johnson's Baby Lotion It is what you expect, gentle and baby scented. Will not repurchase, as I didn't like the smell like I thought I would.
L'Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base This reminded me a lot of a "wetter" feeling Smashbox Photofinish. My skin felt oily afterwards, which doesn't happen with the Smashbox primer, so I will not be repurchasing. This lasted a good long time, though, because you barely have to use any.
B&BW LOL Lime PocketBac I am so proud of myself for using one of these up. I would repurchase, but I have about 10000 in my drawer waiting to be used.
Orly French Polynesian Tropical Dew Max Moisture Hand Butter This literally felt like a whipped butter. I really liked it, especially as lotion on my legs. Would repurchase if there weren't constantly new things for me to try.
The Republic of Pink Bliss Gorgeoous Hands This was pomegranate scented and worked very well. I also adore the packaging. OPI AvoJuice still tops this though, so I will not be repurchasing.
Samy Ultra-lightweight Conditioning Serum This used to work wonders for me, but it just wasn't behaving like it used to. Believe it or not, this is the third I've bought. I loved it so much before, but now it doesn't really seem to do anything to my hair.
Philosophy Happy Birthday Beautiful! Love, love, love this scent and I used it as a body wash. It was ok as a shampoo occasionally, but I wouldn't use it every day.
Neutrogena Energizing Fresh Citrus Sugar Body Scrub very "solid," didn't do much for my calluses.
Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Conditioner Worked pretty darn good, smelled great. Would repurchase, but I like trying new things.
Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash Moisturized ok, smelled ok, but was not the irritated-skin soother I expected it to be. Would not repurchase.
Skintimate Shave Gel in Mango Smelled good, but not as good as the strawberry/tangerine one. Would repurchase.
Bath and Body Works Fresh Lemon Anti-Bac Foam 'Nuff said.
Secret Scent Expressions Ooh La La Lavender This didn't smell particularly lavender-y to me, so I would not repurchase.
California Mango Mango Buff This had the weird not-mango scent that plagues every product I have used from this line. Didn't make my hands noticeably softer, either. Will not repurchase.
Pantene Medium Thick Conditioner Pantene makes some of my favorite conditioner, and I have already repurchased this baby.
Aveeno Nourish&Moisturize Conditioner This isn't really enough to do a review on, but it didn't dry my hair out. Would consider repurchasing.
Yes to Tomatoes Total Treatment Facial Mask This had a pleasant scent and went on nice and thick. My skin definitely looked calmer after I used this. Would repurchase if it were less expensive.
Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate This was SUPER runny and I felt like I was just asking for a disaster every time I squeezed that tube. I used this simply because I had a sample, and as it didn't help with my dark circles AT ALL (because it isn't really designed to), I will not repurchase.
Boscia Oil-Free Daily Hydration SPF 15 This worked very well, although it didn't get rid of the little flakies by my nose. My only quibble is the scent; every time I used it, it smelled like I was rubbing a tree on my face. The scent wasn't unpleasant, exactly, just unexpected. The scent disappeared quickly, though.
Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes I used these when I went up to Washington State with my family, as a quicker way to wash my face at night. My skin never looked better, I swear. I am addicted to product, though, so I already bought another kind of towelette for makeup removal.
Biore Make-Up Removing Towelettes Worked well enough.
Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub one of my favorite scrubs: creamy, but gets the job done.
H2O+ Sea Results Eye Mender Plus THIS IS A MIRACLE. My dark circles were significantly reduced when using this. If it weren't so expensive, I would totally buy the full size.
Vaseline Sheer Infusion Botanical Blend This stuff works really well and didn't sting on freshly shaven legs. Would consider repurchasing.
Orly French Polynesian Max Moisture Hand Butter see above.
Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Body Butter This lasted FOREVER, as in at least 7 months. This is actually the body butter that made me go back to the Body Shop. It smells good, it makes my skin EXTREMELY soft and smooth. The BS Body Butter is my HG butter, though not necessarily in this scent. Have already repurchased.
Mane 'n Tail Hand & Nail Therapy This was meh. It didn't smell bad, but not good either. It moisturized okay after it finally absorbed. Would not repurchase.
Freeman Bare Foot Revitalizing Lemon and Sage Foot Balm Meh. It was extremely messy and not very moisturizing. It smelled alright, though. Would not repurchase.
B&BW Country Chic Lotion This is good for skin that doesn't need a ton of moisture. I didn't particularly like this scent, though. I have repurchased B&BW lotion in a different scent, however.
Lots of product this month. I have so much mostly-used stuff that it looks like I am being wasteful...I'm just a product junkie...
