July 2013 empties

I haven't used up many products in July, though I need to finish three Lush pots in August so I have five to return at the shop when I go on my quarterly Lush haul.
The only full-size product I used up in July was the Palmer's Moisturising Body Oil. For people who have been skiving off full-body moisturising like me, I recommend this body oil. It is incredibly non-greasy and you only need a few drops just after your shower and all those reptilian fish scales will soon be gone. It is great value for money as a full-body moisturiser. I'm on my second bottle now.
I finished up the Kava Kava 60 second mask for dry, damaged hair from my July Glam Guru Box. There was plenty of product for one use and it helped reduce frizz post-wash.

I used up two Nuxe sachets -  Reve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Body Cream and the Creme Fraiche Masque - a moisturising face and eye mask. The latter was particularly fabulous and I could feel my skin drinking in the goodness. Waiting for my shopping ban to end so I can buy the full size.
I don't have cellulite but didn't want to waste the Biotherm Celluli Laser D. Code 20ml sample so I used it after my shower for a week or so. I won't be repurchasing it unless I gain weight from my current 103.5lb/47kg or acquire cellulite!
The Lush Aqua Marina sampler came in the April Vellvette Box. I already have a full-size which I reviewed here.
The empty container marked EL Primer was a sample of Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer. I've already bought the full size and shall review it in the Primer Facie series soon.
Finally, I used up the Caudalie Vinosource SOS Morning Eye Rescue sample - I even cut off the crimp to get at every single molecule of the product and the sample lasted for a good 10 uses. It was a good de-puffing eye cream, although it didn't do anything for the dark circles acquired by working on my writing late into the night. I may not repurchase because I prefer the Lancome Genefique Yeux Light Pearl (reviewed here).
What products did you use up in July?
