August 2020 Empties

Its hard to believe that we have almost reach the end of another month.

Ive been keeping myself busy with both small and large projects. We are still cleaning out our storage, but since my significant other is working a full time job and the weather here has been so hot and humid, its been slow going.

Ive been steadily finishing up some of the older items in my collection and really putting a dent into what Ive accumulated in regards to skincare products.

I was able to finish a few items in my projects (which I will be updating shortly). And I colored my hair this month!

This months empties total is $165.47!

How have you been doing? Have you finished anything this month?

June 2020 Empties and a Project Pan Declutter

June was definitely a great month for empties. It may not look like it but there are a lot of empties! It almost seemed like I had something finished every other day or so….

I managed to finish a cleanser, setting powder and lotion from my 2020 Project Pan. I will be updating that project with Thursdays post.

My empties total for the month of June is $138.38! That brings year to date total to $597.86!!

I will be decluttering this face mask. Not only is my face not oily these days, but this mask is definitely expired. It was my oldest face mask so its not a surprise. I dont remember how much is costs but a quick google search gives me an estimated cost of $10. I managed to finish about half of it.

My year to date total on decluttered products is $185.05

How did you do this month? Were you able to finish or declutter items?

 

March 2020 Empties and Declutter

What’s that phrase? March comes in like a lion? March has been a month, hasnt it?

Most of us havent been going anywhere or even wearing makeup, so its incredible that I finished anything this month.

I did manage to use up $122.91 worth of products! My 1st quarter empties total is $277.69!!

As you can see, I finished a few project pan items. I will be doing an update in a future post.

I am also decluttering 3 items.

Luckily, these items are only valued at about $8.

  • The Ipsy concealer has been making my skin dry out and thats saying something for someone like me with oily skin.
  • The Elf eyeliner runs so bad and I also was not aware that it was a blue liner until it ran so bad.
  • The Lancome eyeliner has dried out.

Were you able to finish anything this month?

January 2020 Empties

I can hardly believe that we have finished a month into the new year already. I did not finish up a lot of products this month, but I managed to finish up some deluxe sized skincare and two perfume samples.

Since many of these products make regular appearances in my empties, I do not have much to say about any of these items that I havent said already.

This months empties total is $78.78

Were you able to finish anything last month?

December 2019 Empties

I cannot believe that the year is over! The end of another decade. The beginning of something new is about to occur…

The end of a year is something special. You can say goodbye to the old and hello to the new. You can strive to be something more. You can reinvent yourself.

On a makeup related note: Make sure to replace your mascaras, makeup sponges and liquid liners if you have had them in use over 3 months. Dont start your year using old or dirty tools 🙂

This months empties total is $185.45!!

Our total amount for 2019 is $1,419.50!

This amount far exceeds what I thought I would have used up for the year! It all adds up.

How many products did you finish this month?

October 2019 Empties

It was a pretty slow month for empties, but I managed to finish a shampoo!

I love the ion shampoo but after using it for almost 3 years – IM DONE! This shampoo does nothing for my hair anymore so I am glad to be done with it. I worked thru my backups so there are no more. We still use the conditioner – and have two more full sized bottles left. I use the ion conditioner when I color my hair fun colors.

I also wanted to talk about the Givenchy Volume Disturbia mascara. I received this back in June from Influenster and fell in love with this! I kept it a month more than I should have because I loved it so much. Its $27 at Sephora and after I finish off what I have on hand I will purchase.

This months empties total is $68.07!!

Did you finish a lot of products in October?

August 2019 Empties

Somehow time is passing by and I realized I am WAY behind on posting. Again, we are nearly at the end of September and I havent even posted my empties for August.

It was another light month for empties.

This month I finished 6 perfume samples!

I finished my favorite cleanser as well as a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow stick -which were both in a recent project and a Lush soap bar.

This months empties total is $36.64!!

July 2019 Empties

We are already at the end of August and I realized that I havent posted my empties for the month of July. So, without further ado, here are my empties for July.

This months empties total is $42.68!!

I was most impressed with the Pixi Glow Tonic and I am not surprised that it has a cult following. I had definite results by the end of the bottle. I have repurchased but I do have to use up a few other toners before I can open another. Its safe to say that Pixi will now be my toner of choice.

My year end total so far is a little over $900!!!! How are you doing this year on using up products? Are you keeping track?

Let me know in the comments!

June 2019 Empties

My apologies to those who were expecting a post last week. Its always crazy around the 4th of July for us.

Last month I concentrated on perfume and foil samples. I was able to finish 4 of my perfume samples and many skincare foils.

This months empties total is $70.39!!

For July I am going to be concentrating on finishing up a lot of the deluxe sized face masks I had begun for the May Mask Challenge.

 

May 2019 Empties

I have to say that I had a very good month of May. I was able to finish up several deluxe makeup and skin care products.

If you aren’t following my blog or my Instagram, you might not be aware that I am doing the May Mask Challenge by Lisa Stevens so this month of empties is a bit skin care heavy.  My goal was to mask 15 times in May, but I managed to mask 24 days!

A major standout to me is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask! You can’t beat the price and it made my skin feel so moisturized. I have very oily skin and most masks just make my skin feel slimy, but the Neutrogena Hydro Boost mask was outstanding. The serum just sunk right into my skin and it did not slide around like others have. You HAVE to try it!

This months empties total is $97.90!!
