May 2018 Empties

I can hardly believe its already June! And, as always, Im sharing all of the products I finished up in May. I feel like I finished up alot of things in comparison to prior months.

  1. Cotton Rounds – I get these from my local dollar store. I usually get 2 or 3 packs at a time.
  2. Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap – I love this cleanser. I purchased this after trying a deluxe sample. I purchased two from Ulta because they had a special double points offer.
  3. Mario Badescu Facial Spray – This item was in my project pan. I bought this to try out after hearing everyone online love it. Unfortunately Im not a fan of the scent. I did purchase another facial spray, but its the lavender variation.
  4. Sephora Micellar Water (Charcoal) – I got this from the sale section on Sephoras site. I do have two other bottles, but one is coconut and another is a lemon (I think). I did like it but the charcoal was a bit intense.
  5. Clarins Lotion  – I used this as a hand lotion and enjoyed it, but after seeing how expensive it is, I won’t be repurchasing.
  6. Caudalie Resveratrol Moisturizer – I had this in my latest project pan. I received this in a Sephora Play box. I didnt see any improvement in my skin. I won’t repurchase.
  7. Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer – I love this. I have not purchased a full size because Im still working thru lotions I have in my collection. Im glad I finished this because it was in my latest project pan.
  8. Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen – This stuff was INCREDIBLE! I have another sample to use. I want to purchase but its pretty expensive.
  9. Algenist Sleeping Pack – This was the best night moisturizer Ive ever used. It is currently in my wish list.
  10. Ban deodorant – Two words-HATED it! Wont repurchase but I did use it up. Thank goodness I stopped getting Target Beauty Boxes.
  11. Skin Inc Exfoliator – I got this in a Sephora Play Box and did not like it at all. Personally, I think this is a gimmick.
  12. Hydra-C Eye Cream – I did like this, but I won’t be purchasing because I have one full size BareMinerals eye cream and a couple other samples to work thru.
  13. Korres Foaming Cream Cleanser – I did not like this cleanser and do not think its worth the price.
  14. Sunday Riley Good Genes – These two samples make me really like this product. I think the one I received in my Sephora Play (and recently finished) might have been old. The smell and consistency of these two foil packets was different from the tube. I purchased the Clay Cleanser and Good Genes pack from Sephora and have already started using it.
  15. Boscia Black Cleanser  – I really like this cleanser and have purchased a full size.
  16. Essense Make me Brow – I liked this. It controls the unruly brows while adding some fullness. Ive already repurchased.
  17. Holly Berry Eyebrow Serum – I started using this but forgot about it and its expired now. I would not repurchase because I did not see any difference in brow growth.
  18. Marc Jacobs Mascara – This was one of the products in my project pan. The brush was too big on my lashes and I thought the formula was too wet and heavy for me. I can see why others like it, but its not for me.
  19. Marcelle Mascara – This was another item that was in my project pan. The wand on this was interesting and I liked the formula. I would repurchase but I have alot of mascaras to work thru first.
  20. Stila Stay all Day Eyeliner –  I really did like this and it seemed to last awhile before finally drying out. Its something I might repurchase in the future.
  21. Bumble and Bumble Hair Oil – I got this as a sample from Sephora but the packaging on this made the product hard to work with without making a mess. I have a deluze sample from a 250 or 500 point perk that I will try.
  22. Dr Jart Water Drop Moisturizer – This was another sample I asked for in Sephora. I did not like this moisturizer at all, and am decluttering it.
  23. Ulta Bronzer – This bronzer is my of my oldest products and it crumbles every time I opened the palette I had it in. Decluttering. I would purchase another bronzer  from Ulta in the future.
  24. Ulta Blush – This blush is my of my oldest products and it crumbles every time I opened the palette I had it in. Decluttering. I would purchase another blush from Ulta in the future.
  25. Palladio Eyeshadow Palette – This is another old makeup item that I am decluttering. I recently tried using it and it was difficult to work with and have show up. I would purchase another palette from Palladio. I get Palladio makeup from Sallys.

Vape Empties

  1. Deadline Limeaid and Abetting – I love this juice but have not repurchased due to trying other juices.
  2. Fuzion Vapor Poison Apple – I bought this for my 5 year vape-a-versary because it was a juice I vaped back in 2013. Its still as good as I remember.
  3. TMaxx Lemon Creme Filled Doughnut – I liked this more than I thought I would. It needs to steep about a month for best flavor.
  4. TMaxx Vanilla Mint Candy – This tastes like tic tacs. So good. I bought a 100 ml bottle!
  5. TMaxx Vanilla Creme Filled Doughnut – I liked this more than the lemon version which surprised me. I havent repurchased yet, but I plan on getting it soon!
  6. Not Too Shabby Like a Sir – This juice is incredibly good! Its a coil gunker. I will repurchase!
  7. Scope MaddScope – Saving the best for last! I have repurchased. I dont even like real iced oatmeal cookies!

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.

Did you finish anything up this month?

February 2018 Empties

February was the month of finishing up alot of odds and ends types of products.

Im actually surprised I finished all of this.

  • Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub (Original Shea) – I love these scrubs and go between this scent and the coconut lime.
  • Clinique Toner – I had this in my recent project pan. I do not like this toner and was glad it was a product I went thru quick.
  • Steve Laurant Liquid Eyeliner – This was also in my recent project pan. It was a decent liquid eyeliner. If it were readily available, I would repurchase.
  • Erno Lazlo Eye Serum Mask – I received these from Influenster and really liked them. I have a couple left to use. I dont think Id repurchase because I have eye masks that are less expensive.
  • OPI Avojuice (Sweet Lemon Sage) – This is one of my most favorite lotions. It sinks in quickly and keeps my skin moisturized all day.
  • Sunday Riley Martian Toner – Ive been wanting to try some Sunday Riley products but they are so expensive. I was glad when I was standing in a line at Sephora and the sales associates handed me these. All in all, I do not like this toner. (Its green – hence the name Martian)
  • Pur Big Look Mascara – I did not like this mascara because the wand was too large for my eyes. Not only that, but it flaked an hour after application.
  • Son & Park Beauty Water – I really liked this toner until I found out how much it cost. Im fine using my Loreal toner.
  • Origins Plantscription Eye Cream – I liked this eye cream. It had a nice texture. This makes the list of eye creams I would repurchase.
  • Mac Cleanse Off Oil – I like these samples from Mac. This oil works fine to remove eye makeup. I dont need to purchase since everytime I make an order from Mac, I toss this in my cart.
  • Loccitane Shampoo & Conditioner – I received this in my advent calendar and I really enjoyed the scent. This did absolutely nothing for my hair, so I would not repurchase.
  • Formula 10.0.5 Pores be Pure Mud Mask – This was another product from my project pan. I did not like this mask at all. I didnt like the scent and it irritated my skin — and theres not many things that do that.
  • Ulta beauty sponge – This sponge looked a bit worse for wear. I have repurchased.
    • E-LIQUID SECTION
  • Deadline Limeaid and Abetting 120 ml – One of my all day vapes.
  • Scope Madd Scope 100 ml – My all day vape.
  • Maddcatt Sweet Strawberry Lemon 30 ml – This is an older e-juice that I found in my ‘stash’ that I finished. I would not repurchase because strawberry liquids taste like soap to me now.
  • TMaxx No Frills Lemon Pound Cake 30 ml – This was a good enough e-juice but I would not repurchase because it was not lemon-y enough for me.
  • POH Mast Tea 30 ml – This is an older e-juice found in my stash that I just needed to finish before it went ‘bad’. I would repurchase, but I prefer that Limeaid and Abetting from the Deadline line more.
  • Mighty Vapors Hulk Tears 60 ml – This is an excellent juice to mix things up. Its a watermelon based e-liquid. I actually have repurchased and am roughly halfway done that bottle.

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.

December 2017 Empties

Here are the products I have emptied in the month of December:

  • Ion shampoo – I use this to wash my hair only when Im using a semi-permanent dye. I have two backups left but I would repurchase if it still performs after those bottles are empty.
  • Cotton pads – I use these to remove makeup and for toner. I believe I still have one or two more packs but I would repurchase. I get these at the dollar store so they are a great value.
  • Purlisse charcoal face mask – I got this in a subscription box and usually do not like sheet masks, but this one was great!
  • Fresh clay mask – I was not impressed by this especially after seeing it hyped on youtube. I believe I might have a deluxe sample in my skin care drawer tho, but I would not purchase.
  • Loreal Hydrafresh Toner – I love this stuff. It takes forever to go thru and its so inexpensive, so its a great value. I would repurchase but I have to get thru a Clinique toner first.
  • Shea Moisture shampoo and conditioner – I HATED this and ended up dumping out the conditioner because it did nothing for my hair. Would not purchase.
  • Degree deodorant – This is my deodorant of choice and I have already repurchased.
  • Garnier micellar water – I love this stuff. I have some eye makeup removers and Sephora micellar waters to finish but I would repurchase once Ive finished those.
  • Origins eye cream – I did not like this. I think it caused me to get little bumps under my eyes.
  • Makeup Forever serum – I got this in a Sephora play box. I put it in an Advent panning project. I wasnt impressed but the sample only lasted a handful of applications.
  • Strivectin eye cream – I did like this while I was using it, but I wouldnt repurchase due to how expensive it is.
  • Michael Todd Beauty toner – I did not like this. Would not purchase.
  • Origins night cream – I did not like this. Would not purchase.
  • Korres yogurt moisturizer – This sample only lasted a week but I was not impressed. Would not purchase.
  • Sephora moisturizer – I really like this. Ive received a few foils packs and have enjoyed. I would purchase but I have a drawer full of moisturizers to use up.
  • GlamGlow supermud mask – I LOVE these and would purchase if they weren’t so expensive. I have a  drawer full of skin care to use before I can think of purchasing more of these.
  • SeaBreeze astringent – I LOVE this stuff. I know its horrible for the skin but Ive used this for years. I have a liter bottle that I just refill this container with.
  • Lush Volcano foot mask – This was a sample and I did purchase a full size thats pictured here also. I would repurchase because it made my feet feel so good!
  • Real Chemistry skin peel – I did not like this. The scent was off putting as well.
  • Purity cleanser – I did like this but not enough to purchase over any other cleanser.
  • Origins Checks and Balances – LOVE this cleanser! I have a travel size in my backups.
  • Ipsy points reward – this was a brush cleaner, but it was so small that I could only fit my eye brushes. Would not purchase based on this ‘sample’
  • BareMinerals Lash Domination liquid eyeliner – I really liked this liquid liner and would repurchase once I finish the other liners I have in my backups.
  • Essense lash princess mascara – I like both of the Essense mascaras and would repurchase, but I have so many backup mascaras to use up first.
  • Hempzilla CBD gummies – I got these when I purchased my CBD extract. Ive been trying to find some relief from FM and SLE symptoms and wanted to see for myself if they worked.
  • Dolce & Golbanna light blue perfume sample – LOVE this perfume. Received this sample in a sample bundle from Ulta. I already have a rollerball.
  • Delectable body lotion – I did not like this for my body, and used it as a hand lotion instead. It was okay as a hand lotion. Would not go out of my way to purchase tho.
  • Scope MaddScope and Deadline Limeaid and Abetting – My two favorite e-juices. No empties would be complete without it.
  • Tree Hut scrubs in Shea and Coconut Lime – I use one of these a month. LOVE them and have backups of both.

Did you use up anything in December?

November 2017 Empties

Since its the beginning of December, its time to go thru some of my ‘trash’ again. Here are the items Ive finished up in November:

  • Neutrogena wipes – These are my favorite makeup wipes. This is my last pack so Ill have to purchase soon.
  • Ponds wipes – These were ok. They removed my makeup fabulously, but they made my face feel oily.
  • Freeman masks – I dont like the packaging on these, and Im fairly certain the full size comes in a tube. I did like how they left my skin feeling.
  • Patchology eye masks – I got these in a subscription box and did not like them. Would not recommend.
  • Hask shampoo and conditioner – I really liked this shampoo and conditioner. It made my hair feel nice and the scent was great.
  • Bareminerals Skinlongevity Serum – My holy grail serum! I have repurchased.
  • Lush Volcano foot mask – This was a sample and after one use, I purchased a full size. I forgot I had these. This stuff is messy but my feet feel great after.
  • Glamglow moisturizer – I loved the consistency of this moisturizer, but my skin is far too oily to use this year round.
  • Glamglow supermud mask – My favorite mask! I love how this smells and it seems to correct my oiliness for a day or so.
  • Dior Diorshow mascara – I liked the formula of this mascara, but the scent was too overpowering.
  • Curel Hydratherapy moisturizer – I like the Jergens better. This seemed to have a really unpleasant scent.
  • It’s a 10 leave in conditioner – My favorite conditioner! This makes my hair smell great too.
  • Bareminerals powder foundation – I love bareminerals powder foundations! This was just a sample size.
  • -417 hand moisturizer – I really liked this for my hands. It sunk it and even lasted thru hand-washing.
  • Coola setting spray – This made my makeup last but it smelled like straight sunscreen.
  • Essence Lash Princess mascara – This is a great mascara but I like the pink one better.
  • Bareminerals clay chameleon cleanser – I liked this cleanser but Id rather just keep the clay in face masks.
  • Clarispray – I got this from influenster or pinchme for review. Loved it so much Im still using it. If you have nasal allergies, you should try it!
  • Claritin ready-tabs – Thank goodness the weather is finally cooling off so I dont have to take allergy meds.
  • Deadline limeade and abetting – Yep, another huge bottle gone 🙂
  • Scopejuice Maddscope – My absolute favorite e-juice. I have to slow down since my supply is limited at the moment tho, but I will absolutely repurchase!

October 2017 Empties

Another month has came and went, so here are my empties for the month of October. I didnt think I used up as much as I did.

  • Sesame Street Baby Wipes – Dont laugh! I use baby wipes to clean off my handbags. I do have a replacement, but its not this brand.
  • ScopeJuice and Deadline Limeaid and Abetting – These are my two favorite juices to vape. Obviously, I have more!
  • Claritin – Despite the fact that its October (now November) I am still having issues with allergies.
  • Benefit Kabrow! – I got this sample a while ago and used up the shade that matches my brows. I wouldnt repurchase because I prefer pencils.
  • Dr Jart Water Drop Moisterizer – I liked this but I have a ton of moisturizers to work thru.
  • Cotton rounds – I use these to take off eye makeup and apply toner. I get mine from the local dollar store and have repurchased.
  • Boscia Cleanser – I liked this cleanser and I like how it warms up when you use it, but I have so many cleansers to use up.
  • Clinique Dramatically Moisturizer – I love this! This is a great gel moisturizer for those of us with oily skin. I have repurchased.
  • Origins clay mask – I enjoyed using this. I do actually have a replacement but my favorite is the GlamGlow.
  • 2 Ulta makeup sponges – I like the Ulta brand sponges and find that they do the job but they dont sell the two pack anymore. I have replaced these with another type of sponge Ulta sells.
  • Caudalie eye cream – This felt nice on the skin but gave me little bumps under my eyes. I wouldn’t repurchase.
  • Clinique mascara/primer – I never used the primer and the mascara dried up very quickly after opening. I wouldn’t repurchase.
  • Purity cleanser – Its not my favorite cleanser, but I liked using it on days I didnt need deep cleansing. I have a deluxe sample Im working thru at the moment that I received in a Sephora Play box.
  • Vaseline hand cream – I have very dry hands so I love hand creams but this one was greasy feeling.
  • Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub (coconut lime) – I love Tree Hut scrubs and rotate between this and the regular Shea scent. I have at least a 6 month supply at all times!
  • Sweet Spot wipes – I got these in a pinch me box  and Im not impressed. I believe I have two more wipes in my purse. I wouldn’t repurchase.
  • Palmers Coconut Oil lotion – I got this in a Target or Walmart beauty box and LOVE this. It smells fantastic. I have a lot of lotions to work thru before I can even think about buying anymore tho.
  • Dove body wash – I like Dove body wash, but something wasnt right with this one. It smelled off and had an odd consistency so I decluttered it.
  • Brush – This brush looks like it went thru a war. I believe it came from Ulta. I do have a replacement but Im almost certain I got it from Sephora.fullsizeoutput_8be
