Empties Post: Bring on the trash!

I have to say, ever since I have been blogging, I have been cruising through my products, and it’s making me super happy. I have more room for my collection, I don’t have tons of half empty products around, and I love these kind of posts. Empties posts/videos are probably my favorite things to watch and read. Hopefully you guys appreciate the trash just as much as I do! Let’s get into it!

Avene Gentle Body Scrub: This is something that I found in the back of my bathroom closet. I was using it awhile ago, and ended up putting it away because I hated the smell of it. It only had a small amount left, so I polished it off (pun intended) but I wouldn’t repurchase. It left little small red beads everywhere which was odd, and like I said the smell was a bit offensive to me.

Philosophy Senorita Margarita: These three in one products from Philosophy are amazing, and I feel like anyone who finishes a full size should be rewarded. I was tired of the scent by the time I got to the bottom, but I will more than likely repurchase in another scent. I find Philosophy always nails it, and their smells are bang on.

L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara: This was a product that I knew I was going to hate before I even opened it. I got it in a gift bag awhile back at an event, and I recently had an infection in one of my eyes, which meant all of my eye makeup had to be tossed. This was the one I opened right after my eye healed. I didn’t want to crack into a Hypnose, in case I had to throw it away again. This mascara flaked on me, and it was the most awkward brush I’ve ever worked with. Garbage!

CoverGirl with Olay Concealer Balm: I loved this concealer. I ended up using it like a stick foundation somedays, and I finished it right to the bottom. It had great coverage, wasn’t too dry so I was able to put it under my eyes, and it lasted a fair amount through the day. I would repurchase this for sure. I might get a darker color to contour with …

Fresh Sugar Balm: This product is the perfect base for lipsticks. I know everyone raves about the EOS balms for that, but they really dry my lips out. I use this product by itself, or as a base for my lipsticks. This one got seriously emptied as I went at it with a q-tip near the end. I would repurchase this for sure, I might wait until Sephora does a bonus set.

Cliniderm NutriComfort Soothing Body Balm: Ok, this body cream shocked the hell out of me. I opened it thinking I would get it out of the way, and I was not expecting to fall in love with it as much as I did. It was heaven for my super dry legs. It is a very thick balm like cream, but when you apply it, it doesn’t feel overly sticky or tacky. One thing I noticed about it was after I applied it, I was able to put my jeans or leggings on almost right away. That is unheard of for super hydrating creams. It had no fragrance, and made my skin literally glow. I will be repurchasing this if the body creams I have to open at home don’t stack up. Awesome product!

St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse: This is about my fourth bottle of this product. I love it. It dries super fast, doesn’t have that dreaded self tan smell. I have a full post on this product HERE so check that out if you are just getting into self tanner!

Cauldalie Hand and Nail Cream: This is my second tube of this. I will be repurchasing the full size, as this hand cream is a game changer for me. It really helps my dermatitis on my hands, and the scent is perfect for me. I will be cutting that tube open right about … now.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me: I won’t go on and on about this, since I talk about it all the time. SPF 20, perfect hint of color, it’s a must have. And I have probably gone through 4 tubes now. I have already repurchased two of them!

Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo: I love Batiste dry shampoos, I will repurchase, but I will probably stick to the original as I prefer the scent!

L’Oreal Butterfly Effect Mascara: Yet another mascara that I hated. It flaked so badly on me, didn’t seem to do anything except make my lashes darker, and the brush was horrible for me. I’d love to know what you guys thought of his mascara .. Am I alone in hating it?

Redken Real Control Hair Mask: The Real Control shampoo and conditioner were in my last empties post, and I found that it was weighing my hair down. The girl who sold them to me said it was good for dry hair, but my hairdresser quickly told me to stop using it because it was too heavy for my fine hair, and switched me to the Redken All Soft. I finished this mask using it as a shave cream!

CoverGirl Liquiline Eyeliner: This was yet another product that had to go due to my eye infection. It’s nowhere near done, but I am half glad to be getting rid of it. I hated this as an eyeliner, as it smudged everywhere, but I did like to use it as a base for a smokey eye. That worked for me! I wouldn’t repurchase, although I always look at the blue and green shades …

EOS Shave Cream: I heard so many people rave about this product, and the color of the packaging was what really what sold me. I was disappointed with this. I know it says “Shave Cream”, but I still prefer something that foams and rinses clean. This rinsed off in massive gobs that made the bottom of the shower so slippery, I am surprised I didn’t break my hip. I won’t be repurchasing, as I am not ready to spend 10 minutes after every shower meticulously cleaning the shower floor to prevent a fall!

Soap and Glory Body Butter: This came in a travel pack I got awhile back ago. I can only stand to use it when I am outside, as the smell is too strong for me. But, the product itself is nice. I wouldn`t repurchase, but I might keep the small jar for travel!

NARS Dolce Vita: This lipstick is amazing. It literally is the same color as my natural lips, so it`s the perfect on the go lipstick. I will probably melt down the rest of this and put it in a palette … I am not ready to break up with it yet! I would repurchase this for sure!

That was a lot of trash … Another massive mountain of stuff to get rid of, making room for new products!

What have you guys emptied out lately?? If you are a beauty blogger, leave your blog name in the comments so I can go see!

Have an awesome day everyone!

  1. Wow, so many empties! Well done! 🙂 I agree with you on the medal for anyone who can finish a 500ml shower gel – even if you love it, it always ends up being such a slog!
