Summer 2015 Empties | Products I've Used Up!

With two overflowing bags, I got the hint that it was time for me to rummage through them and dig out and show you all that I've used up in the summer months. I also did something I've never done before - I filmed the video without a trace of makeup on! I just couldn't be bothered to apply any on that day because it was so insanely hot and humid, so you get to see my natural, bare-faced self. Back to the products, I've emptied lots of skincare products (as per usual) and also many hair products, with a few mascaras and other staples that I tend to go through quickly.
