May 2018 Empties

May 2018

I have not been having the best couple of months in terms of using products up, last month I had five items total and this month I only have seven items to share, not a whole lot but I’ve been sharing this every month and enjoy doing it, so here I am today to share my small amount of empties with you guys. Let’s jump right on in.

April 2018 Empties

April2018Empties

Last month my empties were pretty average but this month is going to be a little bit disappointing because I just didn’t get to use up as many products as I typically do, I’m not sure why but I guess I was just slacking this month. I do have a few things this month to share but it’s really not that many.

March 2018 Empties

It is that time to talk about all of my used up products, some of the most fun posts are these I think. I just think it’s really satisfying to use up a product and to read about a product someone used up because they really used it up and can say that they’ve formed a really proper opinion about a product when you use it up. So, I think it is safe to say that I have an opinion about all of these products, let’s jump in to talking about the products I’ve used up.

February 2018 Empties

As per usual it is time to talk a little trash, meaning talk about all of the products that I finished up during the month of February. Last month we had a pretty average number of empties and honestly this month I still have a pretty average amount of empties, but I am happy about that because I am trying to get through things and am consistently using up a product. Let’s chat a little bit about what I have used up.

January 2018 Empties

It’s time for yet another empties post, the first one of the year and it’s going to be an average empties post really, I have a fair amount of products but nothing crazy. I have been keeping up the pace with going through products and getting them out, which is a huge goal that I have for this year, I really want to use and enjoy my hoard of things, so hopefully, these empties posts will stay interesting.

December 2017Empties

This post feels less repetitive because I didn’t do a yearly empties post, that would have been strange if you ask me, so instead I’m just doing the one. Last month was a pretty normal amount of products used up for me, however, this month is a little bit light, I just didn’t focus on as many products nor did I use up as many I guess, but I’m still going to share so let’s dive on in.

OctoberEmpties

It’s time to talk about some trash, which is always fun, I really enjoy seeing all the product that I’ve used up in a month or other people have used up, it’s just really fun to be able to see how much someone really liked something as they full used up a product which means they usually have a very clear opinion about it. Anyway, this month is probably going to be a bit shorter than last month, I for sure do not have as many empties as I did, so let’s dive on in.

September 2017 Empties

September 2017Empties

I am back with another monthly empties posts, not quite as many products as last month, but still a fair amount. I am really burning through products, that may be because of minis or just things I used all the time but either way I’m blowing through them it feels like. Let’s jump in and talk a little bit about my trash from September.

PSX_20170930_133251

Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Moisturizing Conditioner – Is the conditioner that I was using for a little while there. I like it and think it’s nice, I’m just not sure that it’s my holy grail, end all, be all conditioner and I’m really not sure if I’m ever going to find one that is. Repurchase: Probably.

Devacurl Wave Maker Touchable Texture Whip – This is the second mini that I have gone through and I am really into this product, which I think is pretty clear when I said that I’ve been through a couple of minis already. I love this stuff! Repurchase: Yes. I already have even.

NYX Blotting Powder in Ligh– This is something that I wasn’t sure I loved but was something that I thought did the job, however after running out of this and using a couple of other powders I’ve had in my stash, I think this is fantastic and does more than I realize. Repurchase: Yes, already have and will again!

Origins GinZing Eye Cream – This was just a little sample I got from a Sephora play box a while ago, I’ve finally used it up though, I feel like I’ve been working on this little sample for a while now but I’m finally through it. This is not my favorite product, I’m not sure that it really does anything but I did use it up. Repurchase: Probably not, I didn’t really notice any differences when I used this vs. when I didn’t.

Garnier Micellar Makeup Removing Wipes – These are my favorite makeup remover wipes, I really love them and have been using them for a while now. Repurchase: Yes, completely, already have and will for the foreseeable future.

PSX_20170930_133514

Bath & Bodyworks Watermelon Lemonade Candle – This is probably my favorite scent from Bath & Bodyworks, it smells amazing and I love it in all forms that I’ve smelt it in thus far. I’m glad you can get this candle all year round now because it’s one of my favorites, even in the winter time. Repurchase: Yes!

Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover – This was a smaller size and it was something that I used up but it took me a while as I really didn’t like it, I find that this feels a little bit more greasy than I would like. It did a great job at removing eye makeup but I just didn’t like the feeling. Repurchase: No, I would not.

Up & Up Moisturizing Shave Gel in Strawberry Tangerine – This is fine, it’s shaving gel and I don’t think there is really anything fancy about shaving gel, this one does the job, smells nice and is easy for me to pick up while grocery shopping. Repurchase: Yes, of course.

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner – This is my favorite leave-in conditioner I have ever used, I have tried a couple of cheaper ones but they just aren’t the same and they don’t do the trick like this one. I wish these went on sale more often because I feel like I go through these pretty quickly. Repurchase: Yes, already have two backups from them being on sale last month.

Bath & Bodyworks Peach Bellini Candle – I love this scent too, this is another one I will burn all year, this is a really fresh and fruity scent that I think is perfect for all seasons. It’s fresh but it’s very celebratory like, if a scent can even smell celebratory. Either way, I love this one. Repurchase: Yes!

PSX_20170930_133714

Mac Strobe Cream – I have finally finished this one! If you have seen my project pans in the past then know that this has been in them for a while now, I’ve been what I thought was close to finishing this product for months now, but I just now finished it and I am so excited to have finished this. This is a good product but I don’t love it as much as I once did, it’s alright. Repruchase: Probably not.

Clinique  Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer – This is my all time favorite moisturizer and I’m so sad this was my last little jar, I’m trying to make my way through some other minis and a full size before repurchasing this one but I love it so much! I even use it during the day. Repurchase: Yes, I would for sure!

Tatcha The Water Cream – This was a little sample jar I got from somewhere and I’m not really sure where, but I tried this out. I want to complain about the size of this, I know it’s just a sample but I got maybe six uses out of this max, which felt a little bit sad. I don’t think I’m a big fan of this one though, I didn’t really notice any difference and I didn’t like the smell of this at all. Repurchase: No.

Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo – I actually really liked this, the smell wasn’t my favorite but I liked what it did for my hair, I found that it really got rid of build up after a week or so and I really liked that. My biggest thing is about this is the price tag, it’s not something I would use up quickly but it’s still a hefty price tag. Repurchase: I’m not sure.

Milk Makeup Blur Stick – I like this, I think this does what it claims to do but I also think there are a lot of other products that do similar things to this and this isn’t my all-time favorite application. I do still enjoy this and think it’s a great product, it just isn’t the best. Repurchase: I might, one I used up some other primer type things.

Mac Prep + Prime Fix + Coconut  – I am so sad about this, this was one of my favorite things ever, it smelled amazing and the way it set my makeup was just so nice and I loved it. However, this was a limited edition product and they don’t’ carry it any longer. I just want them to bring it back! Repurchase: YES!

And those are all of my empty products for the month of September, not a lot of makeup but I feel like there never really is as I don’t go through makeup that often really. Still, a good mix of products and some things I’m very happy to finally be finished with.

August 2017 Empties

August Empties

Yes, it’s time for another monthly post about the month of August, today it’s all about my trash, aka the products that I used up in the month of August. I didn’t use up as much as last month but there is still a fair amount, I think that may have something to do with the fact that I have and use so many mini sized products. So, let’s start talking trash.

PSX_20170826_170840

Smashmallow Mint Chocolate Chip – I cannot say enough good things about these marshmallows, we’re doing a candy bar of sorts at our wedding and I talked my fiance into trying some of these after I bought a bag while I was in Florida. These are so good and a great little sweet snack if you need one, which sometimes I do, these ones are very minty and just a little bit chocolatey. Repurchase: Yes, but only if I was in the mood, the

Smashmallow Root Beer Float – These are the ones that started my love with this brand, probably not this bag exactly but this flavor. This is hands down my favorite of the flavors we have tried, which is four out of the seven I believe they sell. I love root beer and I love how much this tastes like it, without actually having to drink root beer, which I rarely drink. Repurchase: Yes, the second I run out I need another bag!

Lorac Behind The Scenes Primer – I have a bunch of these mini ones and this one has taken me forever to use up, I keep getting them with a palette, they are not my favorite primer ever but they aren’t half bad either. Repurchase: Probably not, they aren’t my favorite and they aren’t really cheap either.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer  – I am so excited to be finished with this product, it’s not bad but it’s just not the primer for me, I find that my makeup slips around after a while with this, which I understand happens after some wear but nothing like this. Repurchase: No, I do not like it.

Elf Makeup Remover Pen – This is a really fantastic idea and a fantastic product, it’s just a felt pen that is covered in makeup remover, so when you make a mistake with your winged eyeliner or something of the sort, this is the perfect thing to touch it up without completely ruining it. Repurchase: Probably, it doesn’t last quite as long as I would like but it was good.

Wet ‘N Wild Mega Cushion Highlight in Who’s That Pearl – This is something that I am decluttering because I just don’t like it that much, it’s a little bit hard to work with and it doesn’t really end up looking that great, so I’m not the biggest fan of it. I just had to have it and now I’m decluttering it, but at least it’s a more affordable product. Repurchase: Nope, I didn’t really like it.

Lush The Kiss Lip Scrub – This I can’t link to as it’s limited edition and this is something else that I am decluttering, I love Lush lip scrubs, they are very affordable and do a great job, however the taste of this one is bad enough for me to want to toss it out. This tastes salty and really strange, I do not like it. Repurchase: Nope

Dermablend Loose Setting Powder – I’m sad to see this one go, I never thought I would want a loose powder in my life, but I got this sample and have completely used it up, so it’s safe to say that I love it! The only downfall is that it’s white and powdery, so it shows up on everything, but that would happen with any loose powder I think. Repurchase: Yes, in fact, I plan on repurchasing during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty.

PSX_20170826_171456

Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Conditioner  – This is my current conditioner, I’ve been through two of these so far and I’m almost through a third, so far I really like it, I’m not sure that it’s my end all be all conditioner but it is a really good one and quite affordable too! Repurchase: I already have.

Cutex Twist + Scrub Sponge  – I bought these in sets of two, this does fine but it’s nothing special like I thought it was going to be, but it’s not bad either, it just wasn’t what I expected. Repurchase: Probably not.

Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash  – This is something else that I’ve decluttered, the smell is the reason why, if it wasn’t for the smell this would be a fantastic, gentle product for removing makeup and cleansing my face. The scent isn’t really that strong or that out there, but for me personally I hate it and had to stop using it. Repurchase: Only if they changed the scent.

Pink Sweet + Flirty Body Mist  – I adore this scent, it’s really sweet and flirty, it’s just a great mix of scent and I loved it. Repurchase: Probably, just not right now.

Unwash Bio Cleansing Conditioner  – This was a sample size and I got three uses out of it I think, which is pretty good for a sample, however, it’s not enough for me to say one way or the other really. Repurchase: Probably not, just because I didn’t get a good enough feel for it.

Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant  – I have a few things that are not pictured, so from here down are things that I didn’t photograph. This deodorant was fine, it just wasn’t what I wanted. I didn’t like the smell and I don’t personally think it kept my odor at bay enough, so because of that, I’m just kind of eh on this one. Repurchase: Probably not this scent but maybe another one.

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Extra Moisture Detangler  – This is something that I am decluttering, I’ve had it for a while and used about half of it, but I didn’t really find that it helped my hair at all so I decided to finally let this one go. Repurchase: No, it just didn’t wow me.

Tarte Frxxxtion Stick  – I used this up and it took me longer than I thought it would, but I’m completely okay with that. I had a sample of this that I love so I bought the full size, loved the full size just as much as the sample. This is a great gentle exfoliate for the face, it doesn’t really have a smell and it’s just a super easy to use the product. Repurchase: Yes, just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

Not Your Mothers Naturals Tahitian Gardenia Flower + Mango Butter Curl Defining Detangler  –  This is something that I am happy to see go, I just didn’t like this as much as I thought I would, and while the shampoo and conditioner in this line smelled amazing, this did not. Repurchase: No, it’s not awful but not great either.

Lush Monsters Ball Bath Bomb  – This is a Halloween bath bomb from last year that I am hoping they roll out this year because I really love this one. I love the scent, it’s a really bright, candy, citrus kind of scent. I love the look of this, both out of the water and in the water, and all around I just love this bath bomb. Repurchase: 100%

Lush Pink Bath Bomb  – I tried the new one out, which I did not realize had a new scent and I’m kind of bummed about that, it’s not bad but it’s not that in your face, snow fairy type of scent, that I love in all forms except for the shower gel. This is a more grown up version of that I think, it’s toned down a lot and has a little bit more of an earthy smell to it. Repurchase: Eh, probably not.

Secret Arts Jelly Bomb – I have a lot of things to say about this one, but I’m going to save that for a review that I am going to put up next month since I forgot to put this in this months schedule. I do love the smell of this. Repurchase: Nope.

And those are all of my empties from August, quite a few but nothing like lasts month. I think this post has been longer than I anticipated it would be but I did still have a lot of stuff to go over. Anyway, here’s to another good month of using up products.

Have you guys used up anything fun this past month?
