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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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.
