Topic Tuesday: Favourite IG Collabs and Challenges

The only group challenge I do at the moment is this Topic Tuesday one. I am however challenging myself to re-do the 52 Week Challenge which I originally did a decade ago.

Empties: July 2022

No polishes used up this month for once;

Leighton Denny Intense Pedicure Oil | I think this lives up to the 'intense' label, it is very nourishing.
ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer | This was my go to primer, it really helps fill in my pores without highlighting them. Keeps foundation on longer too I find. I won't be repurchasing as the price has gone up significantly.
Jelly Belly Choc Mint Lipbalm | The scent was of synthetic choc chip, did as you would like for a lipbalm. I would repurchase this one.
So...? Exclusive | Not a scent I would typically wear, happy to have finished but won't be repurchasing.

Lush Lord of Misrule Shower Gel | The scent is identical to the bath bomb, musky and patchouli and a little goes a long way. It is expensive, but I would repurchase it.
L'Occitaine Soap | A moisturising hand soap, the scent does linger on your hands. I would repurchase this.
Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter | The only body butter product I like. The scent is quite strong and it does linger on the skin but it isn't as strong once it is on. The lotion itself is thick and very moisturising but it does sink in and doesn't leave a tacky layer on the skin. I would repurchase this.

Aroma Energy Cherry Fragrance Oil | I'm glad to have finished this, the scent was very artificial and I wouldn't repurchase.
Nag Champa Incense |  This one is particularly potent, not one you can ignore, but actually has a scent rather than just burning wood. Won't need to repurchase for a while as I have a box of 15 left to go.
