All Used Up #9

I didn't realise that it was less than 2 weeks ago since I did an empties post, but it's time for one again because I can't keep too many empties bottles in the cupboard (Jason moans too much). Unlike last time I have a tiny bit more variety in what I've used up...

Caudalie Makeup Removing Cleansing Water
You might realise that this featured in my last empties post so I can roughly say that a bottle of this lasts me 2/3 weeks. I absolutely love this cleansing water and my skin loves it too, it hasn't caused a sniff of trouble since I started using it back at the end of January and it makes cleansing so much easier. Granted I do like a heavier cream cleanser if I have heavier makeup on but for every day use this is amazing! Escentual have 20% off all Caudalie at the moment so a 200ml bottle of this will cost you £12.00.
TRESemme Platinum Strength Deep Conditioning Treatment
I posted about this not so long ago and said how much I liked it, I've finished it and my opinion stays the same. I really like this and I have seen a noticeable difference in the condition of my hair. The ends of my hair don't look or feel as damaged and it's much easier to style; the instructions say only to use this once or twice a week and I will admit that I have been using this more often (up to 4 times per week) but it hasn't weighed down my hair in the slightest. I would repurchase this in a heartbeat!
NARS Laguna Bronzer
I've just recently rediscovered this and I forgot how much I loved it, I've been using the last bits of it very sparingly over the past couple of weeks and it's made me fall in love with it all over again. The only thing I dislike about NARS products is the packaging, it seems that the matte black case attracts every bit of dirt it possibly can, leaving it looking pretty grotty! Unfortunately I don't know if I can stretch to it's rather large price tag (£26) at the moment but I think I'm going to do a little research to find a dupe and see how that measures up to the real thing... any recommendations for a Laguna dupe?
Redken All Soft Shampoo 
Just after Christmas I treat myself to a Redken gift set because I'm a bit of a sucker for high end haircare; shampoo and conditioner have always been something I've spent a fair bit of money on. This is almost £10 a bottle but the price is definitely justified, I really really like this shampoo. As you probably already know, I have greasy roots but dry ends so although I want soft hair I don't want it to weigh down my roots in the process. Redken All Soft shampoo has never weighed down my hair, it cleanses it beautifully and you don't need a lot for one wash! 
What have you finished off this month?
