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

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.

November 2019 Empties

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We have spent the last week sick but we are almost at the end! I finally dont have medicine head anymore.

I spent the last 5 or 6 months working thru some Elf skincare products. They were very affordable but I need something with more effective ingredients as an older woman. They would be great for teens as an entrance to skin care tho.

Elf regularly has sales, so if you are interested, just create an account and you will be notified about those sales.

You will also notice that I am steadily working thru my 25 to the 25th Project Pan  products! Im so excited to see how much progress I can get!

This months empties total is $129.93!!

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!!

April 2019 Empties

Its close to halfway thru the year already! Ive said it multiple times already, but this year is flying by.

This past month I really concentrated on finishing up deluxe samples / travel size items in my collection. A couple of products were even put into project pans (perfume samples, face mask, and cleanser) so Ill have to do some updating on those projects next week.

As you can see, I had a foil sample of the Tatcha Water Cream and I can’t wait to get more of this! I was only able to get one use out of the sample I have here, but I do have two deluxe sample sizes waiting to use. My skin REALLY liked this and I might have to open those samples up sooner rather than later 🙂

This months empties total is $44.94!

February 2019 Empties

Happy March!!

As you can see by the photo, I did not finish a lot of products, but I did finish up some staples. I was able to finish one of my favorite shampoos (Ion brand) as well as a now discontinued conditioner. Im actually working my way thru some deluxe samples before I open a full size shampoo and conditioner, and you can see a shampoo sample from L’Occitane as well as two body washes (I actually liked the Aveeno body wash so much that I have already purchased a full size).

My grand total for the month of February is $168.66

I wanted to put a spotlight on the Nutrition Now MultiVites gummies. I received these for free for review but liked them so much that I purchased them. Surprisingly, these were only $12 on Vitacost’s website.
