August 2013 empties

Apart from some Lush empties which I can't photograph since I exchanged the pots for a mask (see previous post here and my Lush empties here), I used up more full-size products in August than I did in the last couple of months!
Full-size empties:

1. Fruit Of The Earth Vitamin E cream: From my last Enchantess bag. Since I've started full-body moisturising, I keep needing more of these things, so it was easy to use up. Repurchase? Nope. Plenty more fish in the sea.
2. Elizabeth Arden 2-in-1 Cleanser: From one of those all-in-one kits. I seem to have had this forever and finally used it up to wash my nail cutters, blackhead removers and outer-periphery brushes. Repurchase? Whaffor??
3. The Body Shop Wild Cherry Puree Body Lotion: I love these. They're paraben-free, non-greasy and awesome-smelling. Already repurchased in other fragrances; I've opened the Shea Butter one now.
Samples
1. Darphin Stimulskin Plus: Feelunique had sent me this. I applied it on my neck. Was a decent, hydrating product; they don't ship outside the EU though.
2. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Moisturiser: Broke me out. 'Nuff said.
3. Lancome Blanc Expert Spot Eraser: The problem with my post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is that NOTHING works on them. I've tried spot treatment from Clinique, Shiseido, Clarins, Estee Lauder and now, Lancome. A prescription dose of kojic acid, courtesy my dermatologist, is the only thing that speeds up their fading - somewhat. Sachets
1. Vichy Bi-White Advanced Dark Circles Correcting Care: There was enough in both sachets for 10 days, and I emptied them into a small pot. Problem was, this didn't touch my dark circles, not one bit. Bleh.
2. Estee Lauder Time Zone Line and Wrinkle Reducing Creme SPF 15: I don't have wrinkles (honest!) but this product made my skin feel softer all around. These came in with my previous haul from Estee Lauder. I love EL products so I'll keep a lookout for more from the Time Zone range.
