March Empties

March has been a funny old month; it seems to have just run away on me without me really knowing where it's gone! I'm pretty much all settled in at work now and have been doing quite a few extra shifts to make my hours up to something approaching full time, since my contract is only 20 hours per week. March has also been a pretty poor month in terms of finishing products off, I don't feel like I've managed to finish much at all.
March Empties 2014
Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo This is an Empties post staple and an absolute essential for me. Nothing further to be said on the matter, really!
Repurchase? Yes. I've actually got a different variant to try out this month, though, just because I'd run out and my local shop doesn't do the Tropical one!
Naked Volume Body Building Shampoo This is another staple really, I seem to get through around one bottle a month and I really like what it does for my hair, leaving it clean and manageable without being greasy, and since it's SLS-free it's also eczema-friendly! It's reasonably priced and smells pretty good, too.
Repurchase? Yes!!
Naked Brunette Radiance Conditioner* This conditioner lasted really well! I've enjoyed using it, finding it to hydrate and smooth my hair nicely. I'm still not really sold on the claims of 'brunette radiance' but I do feel that keeping your hair in good conditioner, automatically makes your colour look better, so indirectly I guess it helped!
Repurchase? Possibly; I'd consider using the Brunette Radiance duo alternately with my usual Volume shampoo and Silky conditioner.
Dr. Lewinn's Private Formula Hand & Nail Cream I won this last Christmas off the Dr Lewinn's Facebook page and have had it in my bathroom next to my sink ever since; it's a thick hand cream with a lovely rose scent which did provide intensive moisturisation, despite leaving a slightly greasy feeling on my hands. I have enjoyed using this but would probably be put off repurchasing by the price, although I can't actually find it on the Dr Lewinn's website currently.
Repurchase? Probably not.
Laidbare For Richer, For Porer Facial Masque I really enjoyed the Liquorice scent of this face mask and found it pretty effective for clearing out my pores and exfoliating my skin. I got this for super cheap from my local TKMaxx but would consider ordering from Laidbare's website (once I've cleared out some of my face mask stash!) as their products are pretty reasonably priced as it is.
Repurchase? Maybe at some point in the future.
The Body Shop Papaya Body Butter This was one of the body butters I bought in the sales after Christmas and I have to say, I was surprised by just how much I loved the scent; it's really fresh and fruity, and lasts pretty well on the skin. It also adds a decent amount of hydration, which is obviously the main consideration for a body butter, and sinks in reasonably quickly. This has become a new favourite for me!
Repurchase? Yes, although only when it's on offer!
L'Occitane Subtle Violet Hand Cream A magazine freebie, this was my desk hand cream and again, moisturised my hands nicely with a beautiful scent. It also absorbed pretty quickly making it perfect for use throughout the day.
Repurchase? Maybe.
So, there you have the few products I've finished off during March; I have at least made a bit of a dent in my hand cream stash, so that's something positive!! Have you tried any of these products? What were your thoughts? Have you fared any better than me this month?
