June Empties

(159) Yesto grapefruit correct & repair- Nice smell but stings face a little. Not uncomfortable & only lasts a few seconds. My face felt clean afterwards & soft. I prefer the cucumber wipes .

(160) L’AFFAIR Vitamin skin newal mask– It fit well & was easy to move, didn’t fall off, left skin soft , smooth, hydrated, & healthy looking. It did have a lot of essence on it which made it a little hard to open at first.

(161) Pure Good skin food- only 7 ingredients like apricot oil, aloe vera juice, grapeseed oil, safflower oil. At first I wasn’t sure about it because it does make your face look very oily.  I only used it at night before bed. When I woke up my skin was so hydrated, soft, & supple. I used it every day and I had no break outs.

(162-163) Hair Food Moisture Shampoo & conditioner infused with honey apricot fragrance- My hair felt really soft & smelled great

(164-165) Udderly Smooth body cream– My friend turned me onto this like 15 years ago. I love it. Keeps skin smooth, soft, moisturized. Didn’t leave skin greasy, absorbs nicely.

(166) Chapstick hydration lock moisture & renew– Yes I finished one without losing it. Kept lip smooth & soft. Don’t think Ill get a duo one again but it did its job.

(167) Nugg hydrating face mask- Keeps skin so soft & hydrated . Nice pleasant smell

(168) Avalon Organics Cleansing Milk– I didn’t care for the formula but skin felt clean and nice after using it

(169) Garnier Skinactive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer- smelled nice, absorbed nicely but still left skin looking greasy/shiny. Left skin hydrated

(170-171) Suave Rosemary & Mint shampoo & conditioner – Left hair soft, nice,healthy. Love the scent my hair & scalp were happy

(172) Not Your Mother’s Beach babe texturizing spray– Not sure if it really gave my hair the texture I wanted but it smelled fantastic. Like a a tropical island because of the coconut smell. I would just get it to spray in my hair for that.

(173) Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters facial cleanser– cleaned face great without leaving it feel dry or tight. Foamed up nicely

(174) Manicure & Spa hand creme– I used this at night before bed because it left hands greasy. Not a fan but my hands were soft & moisturized in the morning.

(175) Victoria’s Secret Hydrating Body lotion coconut milk- LOVED the coconut scent & kept body soft, smooth, hydrated

(176-177) Babyganics lotion- My skin was soft & the chamomile scent was relaxing

Empties8

 

128- Fekkai Blowout hair refresher dry shampoo-  LOVE!! My favorite dry shampoo. It smells fantastic, doesn’t leave residue, works very well. The only con is that it got clogged and warm/hot water didn’t help. I did ask them about it & they told me they are actually in the process in fixing the issue.

129 Centrum Multigummies- Easy to take. I don’t procrastinate taking them. Taste good.

130 MaritzMayer Laboratories Melatonin 5000- I got these to review. I really like the strawberry flavor . Helped me relax which helped me go to bed quicker.

131 Keri lotion shea butter nourishing-  I only bought this because I got it free with coupons/ecoupon.  Its ok but I just prefer other lotion compared to this formula & scent.

132 Colagte Optic White -enamel white- keep breath and mouth feeling clean, helps keep them white without making your teeth sensitive

133 Maybelline- The Falsies volum’ express I had this at the bottom of my purse,  I don’t even remember the last time I used it lol- Its ok but prefer other brands I think it left my lashes more clumped together.

134 Skinfix Ultra Rich Body Butter- I tried their hand cream previously and was not a fan. Their body butter is much better. It creamy & leave skin super soft. Though it doesn’t spread as easily. I did like it but it is pricey and I didn’t like the way it spread so I wouldn’t buy it.

135 Dial coconut water & mango- didn’t dry out hands, smelled nice

136- When- Snow Magic – stay tuned for review later this week but I loved it 🙂

Empties 7- Mini Reviews

It’s been about 3 weeks since my last empties.  Not as many as my last post but finally used up some bigger items I’ve had for awhile.

120-127Empties 7- Mini Reviews April

120 Simple Cleansing Wipes– Refreshing & takes off make up and dirt off face well.

121 Philosophy  Time in a bottle for eyes– I haven’t had much luck with Philosophy but I liked this. It was moisturizing & left my eye area a little more radiant. The formula was a a little thinner than I like.

122 Revlon ColorBurst Peach Parfait – Nice color, felt good on lips

123 M.D Complete Skin Clearing Healthy Skin Accelerator–  I wasn’t sure about this at first but grew to like it. I ended up using it before or during my period when I tend to break out. It helped any break outs clear up quicker or not have any surprise break outs, which was nice. I used it at night only. If you do try it, try skipping days because it does tend to dry out skin.

124 Degree dry spray deodorant– I love these sprays but the scent/ spray would throw me into a coughing fit .

125 DR Jart Water Replenishment sheet mask– It made my skin feel soft , smooth, & hydrated.

126- Radha Beauty Intensive Youth Eye Gel- I liked the gel consistency . It absorbed nicely .I used this at night. I didn’t notice any results but it did keep under my eye moisturized.

127 Benefit They’re Real!- Favorite mascara!  I like how flity , long, pretty they make my lashes. They give me a confident boost.

 

 

 

Empties 6- Mini Reviews

Another batch of empty products. My next batch I should have some full size empties.

After my sample challenge in February, my numbers went up.

 

Empties March

98-99 Covergirl tru blend . Hard to tell because it was such a small sample . It is a thinner formula, light-med coverage.

100 Yes To Grapefruit pore perfection paper mask- While it leaves my skin soft after, I don’t like the smell of this mask at all. It smells like chemicals

101 It Surf Spray- if you have thick long hair it won’t work as well. Works best when applied on damp hair. Smells delicious!

102 ACT Advanced Care Plaque Guard- Leave mouth fresh & clean. When you spit out your first breathe in is so cool it gave me chills lol

103 Tommy Hilfiger True Star – Ive had this for the longest time and it just gets pushed to the bottom/back. I finally wanted to use it up. Didn’t care for the perfume smell, which is probably why I always said Im going to use it and didn’t

104 L’oreal Youth Code Pore Vanisher I wanted to see how this worked but the sample separated and was not putting it on my face

105 L’oreal Magic Lumi light infusing Primer- At first I wasn’t sure about it then I loved it! I put it under my eyes in the corner for a nice brightening effect. I have to get a full size

106 D by Jennifer Aniston perfume sample– eh was ok wouldn’t buy it not for me

107 Smashbox photo finish foundation primer YASSS! Love this stuff

108 Victoria Secret Shea Body Oil- Didn’t leave skin oily at all, absorbed nicely, left body super soft. I have a bigger size that II will be using once Im done with the lotion Im using now.

109 Victoria’s Secret Bombshells in Bloom- One of my favorites

110-111 3D Crest White Brilliance– Step 1 the formula was shiny and reminded me of the good tasting stuff they use at the dentist which I enjoyed. Step 2 was not as tasty but not bad. I don’t think I would buy this because I don’t want to have 2 steps for toothpaste.

112 Bella Organics Vanilla Mint Natural Deodorant – Liked the smell, kept me smelling good, dry. Even had a slight cooling effect

113 Colgate Max Clean – Enjoyed this, Kept teeth clean & bright , mouth feeling clean & fresh. Had these

114-119 Garnier Whole Blends Shampoo & Conditioner- Stay tuned for a blog post about them 🙂

 

Favorites: Smashbox primer, L’oreal Lumi Primer. Victoria’s Secret perfume & body oil, Colgate Max Clean

15 .Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash- I did a review on this not to long ago. I wasn’t a fan of the after taste. It messes with your taste buds ( even after an hour +) so food & drinks will taste odd. Perhaps if you are trying to lose weight it good help lol but I would not get this kind again.

16. Maxasorb B-12 cream: This is made in the USA & with natural ingredients. Its supposed to help promote energy levels & also helps with dry skin. As far as energy the peppermint in it did help wake me up a bit but it wore off quickly. It has coconut oil in it and leave skin really soft & absorbs nicely. It is $19.95 which is expensive for the 30 doses. Not worth it for me. This company does have a melatonin cream similar to this that is AMAZING! Both can be found on Amazon.

17. Align Probiotic supplement: Easy to take & swallow. No weird smell. Helps you stay regular and helps keep your digestive tract healthy. Thumbs up

18. Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Creme: Love this stuff! You can use it on damp & dry hair. It repairs, strengthens, soft, shine, smooths, moisturizes, heat protection, tames fly-aways. Doesn’t weight hair down or leave hair sticky. Leaves hair really soft & healthy looking. I have a little sample container that I fill up with this so if I have any fly-aways mid-day I use this.

19. One A Day multivitamin: ughhh these took forever probably because I was bad at taking them daily. These were so huge which were a pain to swallow. So glad I am done. I wouldn’t get this kind again. I moved on to easy to take gummy vitamins.

20. Caudalie Premier Cru The Elixir: Wasn’t sure what to expect with this dry oil. It is $99 for .98 oz. so don’t see myself running to buy it. I really enjoyed the sample though. My skin felt nourished & soft after applying. It also absorbed quickly & didn’t leave skin greasy or oily.

21. Maybelline FitMe Foundation: One of my favorite foundations. The color matches my skin tone well. It blends nicely, gives a nice sheer coverage which I want. I also like that it doesn’t feel like I have foundation on my face. Plus it has SPF18

22. Rimmel Scandaleye Rockin Curves Mascara: Like the tube, formula, brush. It has a curved brush that helps lift, volumize , lengthens, and get the smaller lashes. I do wish it separated lashes a little better. Its around $7-$8 which is average. Also no flaking!

23. Murad Transforming Powder Dual Action Cleanser & Exfoliator: Starts off as a powder add some water and wah*lah a nice foamy cleanser. As for an exfoliator it was ok, I think this might be better for someone with sensitive skin. I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it.

24. Vaseline intensive care advanced repair lotion: Light pleasant scent, absorbs nicely, doesn’t leave skin greasy. Left my skin soft & hydrated.

Also come join me for #FoilFebruary on instagram . If you have a bunch of those samples see how much you can use up next month! I have tons and I’m sure I can make a huge dent in them
