I very much enjoying watching and reading empties videos and posts. I like to see what people are using up completely, what they go through in a month, and how they feel about these products!
I did not use up very many products this month. I was busy testing different things, and also using up some of my samples! If I forget to use samples up regularly, they take over my cabinet!
Another reason why I did not get through more shower products is because of this bad boy right here: Ahhh Sugar Sugar Peppermint Mocha Bath Frosting. I very much enjoyed this product! This was a very decadent smelling bath frosting that had scent notes of creamy peppermint and coffee. Ahhh Sugar Sugar packs these jars FULL and you only need a little bit to cleanse your whole body, so they tend to last awhile! I have a review of this here!
I have heard so many good things about Dr. Teal’s bath salts, that I felt I had to give them a try! I used up Dr. Teal’s Pink Himalayan Mineral Soak: Restore and Replenish. These were alright. They had a sort of strong spa-like scent that did not stick around much in the tub. I did feel relaxed after using them, but I always feel relaxed after being in the tub. I will probably repurchase simply because of all the good things that I have heard about epsom salts, but I would like to explore a little more. Any recommendations for good epsom salt soaks?
Shea Shea Bakery Sweet Peaches N Cream and Sweet Candy Apple Emulsifying Scrub. This product did a good job, at being a scrub. It had enough scrubby bits to scrub my skin in a satisfying manner, but I did not enjoy it. This product did not hold onto it’s original fragrance, but formed a sort of chemical smell after only a few days. Both scents did this, and I will not be repurchasing these scrubs.
My dry winter skin has shown up strong this season, and I am using all the products I can in my arsenal to help keep my skin soft and hydrated. LUSH Sultana Of Skin Body Conditioner has helped with this endeavor. LUSH’s body conditioners are thick and packed with oils that coat your skin with moisture and help protect it from the harsh winter weather. I would repurchase this body conditioner. It has a nice, soft scent.
I have finished a whole face mask! It has taken me YEARS to finish Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask! I have loved this mask and it has helped clear my face from breakouts throughout the years. It can be drying, but that is what makes it effective on breakouts. This is something that I have recommended to friends in the past, and that I will repurchase after I finish up a few more face masks.
I like to use curl sprays on my hair to help define my curls and control the frizz. I like to try new curl sprays after I finish one, and there are few that I love. Marc Anthony Beach Spray is not one of them. This spray is just okay. It did not do anything fantastic to my hair. It has a faulty sprayer, so the product comes out the bottom of the sprayer and gets all over your hands and the bottle. I will not be repurchasing this product.
I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar’s scrubs, but this one did not impress me. I have used and loved this formula before, so I wonder if something changed with the new fragrance. I have talked about this on a review Mango Sorbet Coconut Milk Salt Scrub
I used and abused Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer! If you are looking for a nice, natural bronzer, you MUST try this one! It is so easy to use, it blends beautifully, looks natural, and smells like coconut! I do not normally talk about the makeup on my blog, but I felt I should give a shout out to this bronzer, since it treated me so well!
I can already tell you that next month’s empties are going to be much bigger than this month’s! So get ready for lots of reviews and pictures in the coming weeks! On a side note, is anyone else totally in the holiday spirit? Cause I am, and I am so stoked for this holiday season!
