September Empties

I just realized that this post never got published, so my apologies. I’ll chalk this up to user error since I have others just sitting in my drafts folder. I’ll be pushing those out until I get up to date.

I haven’t used a lot of products up this past month.

1) I’ve just recently started tracking my sugar scrub usage. I think I go thru one a month. This month I finished up the Shea Sugar Scrub in Original Shea. I alternate between two different scents.

2) I received the Kleem Vitamin C serum for purpose of a review. I did enjoy using it, but for the price, I can get a higher end serum. I used this as a morning serum and it lasted about 6 months.

3) I received the Ulta brow tint in one of those large Ulta sets and I had forgotten about it. I might have used it once but it’s old and I don’t feel comfortable using it so I’m decluttering it.

4) I love the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream perfume. I got this sample with an online order. I already have a roller ball of it.

5) The Clinique turnaround daytime moisturizer is not something I would purchase. I received this in a Clinique set.

6) My Sephora play box a few months ago contained the GlamGlow Volcasmic moisturizer pictured here. I did recently receive another in a recent box. I could not use this during day because I’m oily, but it felt nice on the skin at night.

7) My first beauty blender experience was this tiny one I received in my Sephora play box. I’m not a fan of it because it’s too hard to hold. I used it a couple of times but I just don’t like it.

8) My last Sephora eyebrow pencil.  I do like this pencil but they really need to have a spooly on the other end instead of this comb. I have a few Anastasia pencils to go thru so I won’t be repurchasing another for awhile.

9) As usual, I have a couple 120 ml bottles of Deadline Limeade and Abetting and 100 ml bottle of Maddscope juice. These are my two favorite juices for vaping.

10) Lastly, I have 3 packs of Claritin Ready-tabs. My allergies have been especially bad this year.  Hopefully the weather cools so I can stop needing the take them.

Summer 2017 Empties

Sorry for my extended absence. I basically took the summer off and had a moderately successful no-buy. Anyway, I did finish a lot of products this summer. What is listed here are products I finished from June through August.

  • Claritin – I have terrible allergies so I take one of these a day. You can see how that adds up.
  • Orbit gum – Received this as a sample from pinchme and I did like the flavor of this gum.
  • Neutrogena makeup remover wipes, simple makeup remover wipes , cotton rounds – I used these to remove my makeup. I dont really like the simple wipes as much as the Neutrogena wipes. I still have a pack of the Neutrogena wipes that Im about halfway done with.
  • Clean & Clear cleanser – I LOVE this cleanser and and I didnt want to finish it because I couldn’t find it anywhere anymore. I purchased a similar cleaner from Clean & Clear so we will see how it stacks up against this one.
  • Purity cleanser – I didnt really like this and I believe I have a deluxe sample that I received from a subscription box.
  • Philosophy cleanser – I did like this cleanser, and Im currently using another cleanser from Philosophy in a full size.
  • Glamglow supermud mask – I LOVE this mask. I do have a smaller size already but Im working on one from Origins right now.
  • Sea breeze astringent – I really LOVE Sea Breeze. It makes my skin feel great and I also use it to clean up my skin after I color my hair.
  • Bamboo shampoo and conditioner – I got this from a Target box and I HATE this. It doesnt lather and I dont like the scent.
  • Pantene shampoo – Ive always liked Pantene shampoos but they aren’t good for my hair when I bleach and color it, so I only can use something like this when Im in between processes.
  • Dove deodorant – I liked this deodorant but I like the Degree deodorants more.
  • Motrin – When you have allergies, you get headaches.
  • Ulta makeup setting spray – I like this setting spray and have it in full size.
  • Japonesque lip wipe – This did remove my lipstick, but it had a horrible scent and tasted nasty.
  • Mac eye makeup remover – This really removed my eye makeup but I dont think Id purchase it.
  • Lush ocean salt scrub – Got a sample from Lush and really liked it, but the Tree Hut version is much less expensive.
  • Tarte moisturizer – I got this in a subscription box and I did like it, but I wouldn’t use it during the summer due to my oily skin. Someone with dry skin would love it.
  • Embryolisse moisturizer – I got this from Birchbox back when I was subscribed and I hated it by the end of the sample.
  • Burts bees day lotion – I loved using this as a hand cream.
  • Lush cup o coffee mask – This is a great face mask and really exfoliates. I havent pulled the trigger on the full size because I have so many masks to use first.
  • Mac fix + – Travel sized. I already have a full size and love this stuff. Its literally magic in a bottle.
  • Degree deodorant – My deodorant of choice.
  • Mac Studio Fix foundation – I did like this when I used it in the winter, but in the summer its way to ‘greasy’ for my skin.
  • Cover Girl powder foundation – This was in my Use it Up project and it was a great powder. Would repurchase after I finish the other powder foundations I have.
  • Max Factor, Sephora Lash Craft, Mad Lash, Iconoclast, makeup forever, Well People, Bobbi Brown smoky eye, elf makeup remover – I used a bunch of sample mascaras. I liked the Well People mascara alot but its almost as expensive as my favorite Mac mascara, so I can’t justify that purchase. The Elf Makeup Remover is great when you screw up your liner or mascara.
  • Brush cleaner sample from Ipsy – It did clean my brushes but the 100 point Ipsy points it costs was ridiculous.
  • Benefit lip stain – Hated this. The roses scent was way overpowering.
  • Isopropyl alcohol – I go thru at least one of these a year. I use it to repress my makeup and sanitize powder products.
  • 5 bottles of Maddscope from ScopeJuice – My all day vape.
  • 4 bottles of Limeade and Abetting – Another favorite vape juice.
