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.

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.
