October 2018 Empties

I had no idea how much skincare I used up this past month! Unfortunately, there are no makeup empties.

  1. Cotton Rounds – As usual, I have a pack of cotton rounds. I use these for toner and to remove eye makeup. I almost always have backups because I go thru these pretty regularly.
  2. SooAE bubble sheet mask – I really liked this mask but it didnt fit my face right and kept sliding down. I believe I got this in a Walmart Beauty Box.
  3. Ulta Cooling Aloe Vera eye mask – I LOVED these. I have a couple more to use but I havent been able to find them again on Ultas website or Id have more.
  4. Sephora red clay mask – They claim there are 4 uses in these, but this seemed to last forever. I did not like the red clay as much as the yellow however.
  5. Sephora yellow clay mask – See previous. I liked this one more than the red. I guess my skin needed the toning more than the energizing.
  6. Loreal Pure Clay Mask (red) – I REALLY liked this. I think I pulled these out of a magazine. This did wonders for my skin and I will purchase once I am out of masks.
  7. Loreal Pure Clay Mask (charcoal) – I REALLY loved this! This is comparable to the Glam Glow Supermud in my opinion. I will purchase once I am out of masks.
  8. Loreal Revitalift moisturizer – I forced myself to use it. I hated this moisturizer. I have half of this left but I cant stand it so Im decluttering.
  9. Clinique Take the Day off makeup remover – I love this stuff. Ive received some from Sephora play boxes and others from point perks but I always use it up! Once I get thru some of the micellar waters I have, this is on the list to purchase.
  10. L’Occitane Relaxing Shower Gel – This was nice to use but I dont think its worth the price. This was in my Advent calendar from last year.
  11. Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil – I received this one in a Sephora Play box and I LOVE this stuff. I keep getting small bottles, but I will be purchasing a full size sometime in the future. My skin really improved using this. This was also in my Halloween Project Pan.
  12. Kate Somerville Exfoikate – This item was also in my Halloween Project Pan. This stuff is intense! I never was able to keep it on my skin as long as recommended. I have a foil packet that I wasnt able to finish also in that project, but I will be using it soon.
  13. L’Occitane Ultra Thirst Gel Moisturizer – This stuff felt nice on my skin but as someone with oily skin, I think it was too much for me. Im glad I tried it and used it up, but it won’t be a purchase. This was also in my Halloween Project Pan.
  14. Pantene shampoo – I did not like this shampoo. I decluttered the conditioner that came with this because I hated it so much.
  15. Real Techniques buffer brush – This brush literally fell apart while washing it. I might have had it 2 years.
  16. Moschino Fresh Coture perfume – I loved this perfume and just bought a rollerball during the VIB sale at Sephora!
  17. Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume – I prefer Daisy Dream over this but Im glad I used up the sample.

VAPE RELATED EMPTIES

  1. TMAXX No Frills Vanilla Mint Candy – I love this juice. It tastes like a white tic tac. I already have a 120 ml bottle open and in use.
  2. Fuzion Vapor Endless Summer – I bought this for my 5 year vape-a-versary and decided to finish it up before it ‘expired’. Its a strawberry lemonade and its one of the flavors I vaped that helped me quit smoking.
  3. Lemon Twist pink punch lemonade – I really liked this and this is m second bottle, but I dont think I would get it again. My tongue seemed to stop tasting it about halfway thru this bottle.
  4. The Cake Shoppe Pound it – This is a fantastic lemon pound cake flavor. I am already halfway finished a larger bottle.
  5. Hulk Tears – This is a watermelon vape that I LOVED. I believe these are my second and third bottle of this juice. I did like it but I think Ill wait until spring to get it again.fullsizeoutput_fae.jpeg

August 2018 Empties

For some reason, I thought I finished more than this last month, but the proof is in the pudding-as they say.

Here are the products I finished:

  1. Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub – I dont go through these as often in the summer, but I always have a backup.
  2. White Could cotton balls – I used these mainly for nail polish. I have a backup but its the dollar store brand if I remember correctly.
  3. Neutrogena eye makeup remover – One of my favorite makeup removers. I do have a backup, but Im using some samples Ive received first.
  4. Clinique facial cleanser – I believe this is my last one. I would not repurchase. I like other facial cleansers better.
  5. Korres cleanser – I did not like this at all.
  6. Glam Glow Supercleanse – I liked this but I think Im allergic to something in it because my face gets swollen every time I use it.
  7. Skin & Co truffle eye cream – This was ok. I prefer other eye gels/creams to this.
  8. Sephora brush cleanser – I love this stuff. Its a bit cheaper than the beauty blender cleanser and does a fine job cleaning my brushes.
  9. Cotton Rounds – I use these for toner and removing my eye makeup. I get them at the dollar store and I usually have backups.
  10. Erno Lazlo eye masks – I got these from Influenster to review and wanted a treat. I like these but I cant justify the cost.
  11. Covergirl Lashblast – Not my favorite Covergirl mascara, but I like it.
  12. Doucce <sp> mascara – This was a very wet formula that really coated the lashes, but it got way too goopy too quick.
  13. Ole Henriksen Night Gel – I did not like this.
  14. Bonine – I get motion sickness. Enough said.
  15. SKII Essense – This was too easy to use. Not enough of an improvement over my Loreal toner to justify the cost. Would not purchase. This was a project pan item.
  16. Sunday Riley CEO serum – I do not like this. I have another foil packet to finish in my current project pan.
  17. Origins Ginzing Moisturizer – This was ok. I wouldnt go out of my way to purchase. This was a project pan item.
  18. L’Occitane Divine Eyes – I liked this but its pricy. This was a project pan item.

Vape Empties:

  1. Clockwork Custard – not really my style of juice but it was alright. It was nice to try.
  2. Savage Marcellus (Lemon Tart) – I really liked this juice and the site always does sales, but never includes this juice in their bundles.
  3. Cloud Kiss – This is a juice from TiaVapes on youtube. It was a light strawberry cake batter. It was really good.
  4. The Cake Shoppe Pound It – OMG Lemon Pound cake in vape form! I can finally get that sweet tooth craving without adding the calories!
  5. ScopeJuice – Oatmeal Cookie wonderfulness 🙂 My readers know Ive been vaping this for a couple years now.

July 2018 Empties

Its been a difficult summer, and its been difficult to finish products.

Here are the items I did manage to finish:

  • Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream – I love this stuff. It smells fabulous and has a light shimmer. I did repurchase.
  • Baby wipes – I use these to wipe my handbags down. I always have backups.
  • Shisheido cotton pads – I get these as a ‘treat’ for my toner, but I mainly use these as my wicks for vaping.
  • 5 ml Nitrile disposable gloves – I use these when I color my hair. I have gloves but not this brand. I would repurchase these tho. (They are from Harbor Freight)
  • Skin & Co cleansing cream – I did not like this cleanser. I would not repurchase.
  • Pharmacy Honey Drop Moisturizer – I did not like this moisturizer and would not repurchase.
  • Sephora brush cleaner – I like using this. It does clean my brushes, and is relatively inexpensive. I already have backups.
  • Loreal Hydrafresh Toner – I really like this toner, and every now and then I try another brand and compare it to this. I have repurchased.
  • Degree deodorant – I use this brand because it works. I have repurchased.
  • ‘Tinkle’ eyebrow tweezers – I have 6 more of these to use. They are ok and would not repurchase.
  • Clinique facial cleanser – I really have no opinion on this cleanser. I get them in kits when I buy the Clinique moisturizer I like. I have another that Im working on currently but would not go out of my way to purchase.
  • Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip – Ive gone from not liking this cleaner to liking it. I have another that came in a kit with Good Genes.
  • Sephora face mask – I love these. They claim its good for 4 uses, but I get alot more. I have a bunch of different types of these to use, but I would repurchase.

E-Juice Empties

  • Savage Juice – I cant remember the exact flavor name but I did like this. It was a raspberry lime juice and I would repurchase.
  • Vaping Watch Monkey Spunk – I really liked this juice and would repurchase.

June 2018 Empties

Many apologies for my absence but there was a death in the family and I felt the need to take a break.

With that out of the way, here are my June empties.

  1. Assured Cotton Rounds – I use these all the time. I get these from my dollar store and I already have back ups.
  2. OPI Avojuice (sweet lemon sage) lotion – I LOVE this stuff. It smells fantastic and really sinks into the skin. Im already almost done another bottle.
  3. Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub – I alternate between the Coconut Lime and regular shea. I love this stuff because its not to rough but also rough enough to exfoliate.
  4. Garnier Whole Blends shampoo and Conditioner – I get these samples all the time. I really do not like these and would not purchase.
  5. Becca First Light primer (purple side) – I only used the first light because I dont need the extra glow with my oily skin. I did like this and have several samples of these.
  6. Claritin Ready Tabs – I take these for my allergies. I already have another box because August (rag weed and trees).
  7. Aurora eyeliner – I got this in a Birchbox or Ipsy and had this in a project pan. It was a decent enough eyeliner but I wouldnt go out of my way to buy it.
  8. Makeup Forever eyeliner – I really like these eyeliners. They are one of my favorite formulas. I would repurchase if I didnt have all the liners I already have on hand.
  9. Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream – I do like this eye cream but Ive found several others that I like more. Would not repurchase.
  10. Essense Make Me Brow – I really like this formula. Its similar to the Benefit one for a fraction of the cost. I have repurchased.
  11. Loreal Pure Clay cleanser – I got this sample from Ulta IIRC and found it to be a nice dupe for the Glam Glow brand. I purchased the full size after trying this.
  12. Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb – I received this perfume sample in a Sephora Play and really liked it. I would repurchase once I finish off some perfumes I have in my collection.
  13. Makeup Forever Velvet Mat Foundation sample – I liked this foundation and would purchase in the winter when my skin isnt as oily as it is now.
  14. Marc Jacobs remarkable foundation sample – This color matched me ok. Ive tried other shades that didnt work as well. I would purchase.
  15. Tarte concealer – I accidentally thought this was a foundation sample but it worked great. I ended up getting a foundation sample from Sephora to try out of the Amazonian Clay foundation.
  16. Clinique gel moisturizer – I LOVE this moisturizer. I have some samples to get thru but its almost always in my rotation.
  17. 2 Mac Next to Nothing foundation samples – I really like this foundation but I prefer the powder.
  18. Sephora scrub – I use these when I take off face masks. I tend to go thru them every 6 months. I have repurchased.
  19. T-Maxx No Frills Vanilla bourbon Custard – I really liked this juice and have purchased it in a 120 ml bottle.
  20. This bottle came from Twisted 420s line but I cant remember the flavor. I would not repurchase.
  21. Lemon Twist Pink Punch Lemonade – I did like it and have repurchased another 60 ml bottle.

March 2018 Empties

Today I am sharing my March empties. I love the satisfaction of finishing products.

  • Cotton Rounds – I get these from the local dollar store and use them to take off my eye makeup and apply toner. I already have back ups.
  • Garnier Whole blends Legendary Olive Shampoo and Condioner – This smelled incredible but did nothing for my hair. Would not purchase.
  • Hask Chia Seed shampoo and Conditioner – I love how good Hask shampoo and conditioner smells, but only the Superfruit does anything for my hair.
  • Loreal Ever Pure shampoo and Conditioner – I think I found this sample in a magazine. I did not like this at all. It made my scalp and hair feel heavy. Would not purchase.
  • Ion Effective Hair Treatment – I get this from Sallys and use it with my Manic Panic or other dyes. It takes forever to finish up because of how I use it. They have changed the packaging but I have already repurchased.
  • Shiseido Cotton – I love these and I do treat myself every now and then to a pack. I mostly use them for vaping tho.
  • Dior Poison Girl – I have loved this perfume and have placed this in my Loves list at Sephora.
  • Mon Guerlain – I love this perfume and do have a small rollerball (or is it a spray?).
  • L’occitane hand cream – I love this hand cream. I got an Advent calendar as well as a free gift coupon so this is 1 of 3 hand cream samples I have.
  • Benefit Roller Lash DS – I absolutely love this mascara and have a few others as backups already.
  • Sephora Outrageous Curl mascara – This is one of my favorite mascaras. I have some others to work thru but I do plan on repurchasing.
  • Clinique Take the Day off eye makeup remover – This worked alright but the Sephora brand, as well the Neutrogena brand work better for less money.
  • MaddScope – What would an empties post be without my all day vape?
  • No Frill Mills – Lemon Creme Filled Doughnut – I tried this juice and its ok. Its better than the other lemon juice I tried from this brand. I have repurchased if that tells you anything.
  • Mac Prep + Prime primer – I love these samples. I think I might have two more left to use up, but anytime I get an order from Mac, I always get more.
  • Peter Thomas Roth water drench moisturizer – I LOVE LOVE LOVE this moisturizer. I have some moisturizers to use up before I can purchase, but I hope its still being made by then.
  • Clinique eye cream – I dont remember what the specific type is, but it works great and Id love a full size. I do have a bunch of samples as well as a full size BareMinerals eye cream to go thru first.
  • Caudalie VinoPerfect Cell Renewal night cream – I used this but would not buy it. I didnt notice anything out of the ordinary to justify the price tag for this.
  • Claritin – Because allergies suck.

Ulta Haul

I recently received a 20% off coupon from Ulta. Even though I am on a low-buy, I needed to order a couple of items. Ulta also had a few gifts with purchase that I really wanted, so I placed an order.

Here is what I ordered…

  • Ulta/Z-Palette collaboration – I already have 3 of these z-palettes and wanted a fourth. I am addicted to depotting, so I was in need of another.
  • Loreal Hydrfresh toner – Im almost done the Clinique toner I placed in my project pan so this will be a replacement once that is done. I love this toner and Ive yet to find another that I like as much.
  • Ulta Cooling Eye Gel Masks – These are $3.00 each and Ulta had a buy two-get two deal, so I have four packs with this order.

Gifts With Purchase:

  • Its a 10 Styling Potion – I have yet to try this but I like so many of their other products, that adding this to my cart was a no-brainer.
  • BareMinerals Skinlongetivy Serum – This is my HG serum. I just opened the one I had recently purchased, so this one will be used once I finish that.
  • Loreal Pure Clay Cleanser – I like the masks from Loreal, so I look forward to seeing how this is.
  • Stila Mascara – Im always down to try a new mascara. I think this one is the Extreme Lash?

January Empties

Edited: This was supposed to post last Thursday, but never did.

I really didnt finish alot of stuff last month, but heres my empties from January.

  • Strivectin tightening face serum – I really didnt like this when I first started using it, but I feel like my skin improved. I would purchase again if I found it in a pack with the neck cream.
  • Hanalei papaya powder cleanser – In a previous post I said these were exfoliating cleansers but I was wrong. This was just a powder you mix with water and it foams up. I liked using them, but I dont know where these are readily available or if they are cost effective.
  • Lancôme bi-facil eye makeup remover – I liked using this and it removed my eye makeup without rubbing. Id purchase again once I get thru the other eye makeup remover products I already have.
  • Juara body creme – I used this as a hand cream due to the size of this sample. It worked alright but I would not repurchase.
  • Nuxe moisturizer cream – I also used this as a hand cream due to the size of the sample. Id purchase this in a full size but I have so many other lotions to get thru first.
  • Brazilian bum bum cream – This stuff is amazing. Everything they say about it is true. Id buy this over and over and over again.
  • Oribe mousse – I only got one use out of this before the nozzle stopped working.
  • Scopejuice Maddscope – My favorite e-juice. Already repurchased
  • Sephora brush cleaner – I use this to clean all my makeup brushes. I have already repurchased.
  • Elf acne gel – I dont remember the full name of this and its not printed on the product but I use this on breakouts. It works great for me and Ive already repurchased.
  • L’Oréal pure clay mask (green) – I did like this mask, and would repurchase but I have alot of masks to work thru first.
  • Giorgio Armani Acquaint diGioia – I purchased the rollerball after using up this sample. It smells amazing!
  • Tarte lights camera lashes mascara – I liked this mascara on my bottom lashes but wouldn’t purchase a full size due to its price.
  • Max Factor masterpiece eyeliner – I got this in an Influenster awhile ago and used it a handful of times and then forgot about it. I did like it, but my Target doesnt sell Max Factor and Im not going to make an online order for one eyeliner when I have others I like more.
  • Cotton rounds – These are from my dollar store. I use them to apply my toner and with micellar water to remove my makeup. They work fine and are cheap. I buy 3 or 4 at a time.
