2016 Empties!!

Hello lovelies! To keep this post from getting too long, I won’t be sharing my thoughts on everything. Even if I split this up into multiple posts it would still be quite lengthy. I’m going to go through by category. If you have any questions about an item, ask in the comments and I’ll share my thoughts there.

I will try and do this type of post more often, maybe quarterly? What do you think? Hope everyone’s week is going well and all of your Christmas preparations are coming together.

Fall/Winter Empties Part 2

Hello lovelies! Part 2 of my fall and winter empties is made up of mostly beauty, hair, and skin/body care. Some of these items I used up completely and others are just so old that it was time to toss.

First of all, I finally used up an Aussie Instant freeze hairspray. I won’t be repurchasing this. It left my hair crunchy and when I used it when I curled my hair the curl did not hold. Anyone have suggestions for a good lightweight hairspray that actually helps hold a curl?

Dr. Scholl’s for her Foot Softening Cream- I liked this but it had a weird scent. I had this for so long that I didn’t use it up. I won’t be repurchasing this any time soon. It help my dry feet but I feel like there is something better out there.

Soap and Glory Hand Food Cream- Love this! The scent reminds me of when you first walk into a Lush store. I love it! I will eventually repurchase this when I use up more lotions.

I went through 3 bottles of the One a day chocolate brownie bite vitamins. I have another bottle. I’ve been slacking on taking my daily vitamins and trying to get better at that.

TreeHut Body Scrub in Tropical Mango- I love this scent and it works and exfoliates well. This was my second small size of it and I repurchased the full size already.

Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion- I love Aveeno lotions. I find them to be great and moisturizing without leaving a film on the skin. I repurchased a different formula in a pump bottle.

Neutrogena eye makeup remover- This works well, doesn’t irritate my eyes, and I’ve already repurchased another bottle.

The Dove line of deodorants are amazing for day to day use. I really liked this go sleeveless formula. I have 2 other Dove deodorants that I’m currently using and plan on going back to this formula.

Klorane oat milk and Batiste dry shampoo- This is the second travel size of this that I’ve used up. This works well and doesn’t leave a cast on my hair. The Batiste dry shampoo, I like it but sometimes I feel that it just doesn’t work well with my hair. I’m trying to stay away from dry shampoos for now so I won’t be repurchasing either one of these.

The following three mascaras, I have one that I will eventually repurchase and two that I’m going to pass on. The one that I will definitely repurchase once I’m off of a mascara purchasing ban is the Clinique bottom lash mascara. I love, love, love this mascara!!! When I originally got this I didn’t use this all that much and unfortunately kind of wasted my money. I did use it quite a bit but it did get very old and should not put it near my eyes. The Ulta Amped Lashes, I liked this. It is an ok mascara but I won’t repurchase this. The staying power is ok, it does not last all day on my lashes. It is a pretty good everyday mascara. The NYC Showtime mascara, I did a first impression/review on this a long while ago. It’s not my favorite and I tried to use it up but I found that it irritated my eyes. This was one that I did not use up and definitely will not be repurchasing this.

I used up an entire bottle of the Nailtiques cuticle and nail treatment oil. I LOVE this!! I already repurchased another bottle of this. When I remember to use this, it practically gets rid of my dry cuticles, and saved them through the rough winter months.

I used up 2 sample of the fair trade foot lotion from Lush. Someone please remind me to go buy the full size of this. This completely helps my dry feet. The color of it reminds me of Pepto Bismal and the smell isn’t offensive but it is different.

Last but not least is a sample of the Dr. Jart BB Beauty Balm, kind of redundant I know. The shade of this is a tiny bit too dark for my skin, but I absolutely love this! My skin never looked so healthy in my life. I got 2 uses out of this little packet, which I was impressed by. This has an spf of 45 so I really want to try it out during the summer months and see how it holds up in the heat.

Well that is all that I have used up in the last 6-8 months. What I didn’t include was the five 3-wick Bath and Body Works candles that I have burned through. What have you been using up? What should I try out next? I hope you enjoyed this little adventure through my trash. Have a great day!
