May Empties

Another month, another list of empties! I really enjoy reading empties post and it encourages me to continue to “Shop My Stash” and use what I have before buying more. It is also just fun to look back on what I/you have used throughout the month! You get an honest review about a product that has been used all the way to the end, which I think it pretty valuable!

Dove Flexible Hold Hairspray: I very much enjoyed this hairspray! It smelled great, didn’t give me super sticky or crunchy hair, but had enough hold to keep my flyaways down. I would repurchase in the future, but am looking at other hairsprays to try currently.

The Dirty Goat Body Cream in Paris In The Winter: I was blown away by this body cream! It is such a lightweight body cream that absorbs super easily but is highly moisturizing! The scent Paris In The Winter is a strong perfume scent, and I believe it is a Chanel dupe. I did enjoy this scent, but it is not a scent I feel like I NEED in my life. I will definitely repurchase this body cream in the future with a different scent!

Scoopable Tart Wax in Lemon Verbena: I very much enjoyed this scent, but that should come as no surprise, it is LEMON scented! I enjoy this scoopable wax, and I would repurchase if I was not trying to solely use paraffin-free wax. I also believe that this company is no longer in business.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Sugar Slushie in Summer Sangria: The more I use Sugar Slushies, the more I am finding that I love these products! They are such a unique product and are fun to work with in the shower. Summer Sangria is an amazing summer scent that smells of apples, peaches, and wine. It is a crispy and fruity scent! I will definitely repurchase this product in the future.

OLLY The Perfect Women’s Multi: I love these vitamins! I can really tell a difference when I am taking them regularly with my energy levels, sleep, and overall wellness. I will continue to repurchase this product and recommend this to everyone that I know!

Zoetic Flower Child Beauty Bath Booster: I very much enjoyed these bath salts! They come in such pretty packaging and I love the scent of anything lavender. I found these very relaxing and soothing. I do not think that I would repurchase, simply because it is only a one-use product and I would prefer to buy something that I can get more than one use out of.

Victoria’s Secret Noir Tease Shower Gel: I did not really enjoy this product very much. It did what it was supposed to do, but I am just spoiled by all of my small business shower products that using this was just boring. I have also had this product for several years, and I believe the scent was just going off. I would not repurchase.

Vanilla Coconut Hand Lotion: I received this big ‘ole bottle of lotion from my grandmother for Christmas two years ago, and I very much enjoyed it! I used this bottle to fill up my to-go bottle of lotion that I keep in my purse. It has a nice scent, and absorbs quickly into the skin! Overall, a very nice product.

N૦7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil: I very much enjoyed this cleansing oil! This took all of my makeup off and did not burn my eyes. It has a nice pump and you get a decent amount of product in the bottle, more than with most. It has a nice delicate smell that is not overpowering at all.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Shower Creme in Get Blitzened: Ahhh Sugar Sugar has one of the best in-shower moisturizer formulas! At first, I did not really enjoy this scent, but after getting it in the shower I really started to enjoy it! It has a very nice eggnog and cinnamon scent that lasts nicely on the skin. I would repurchase this product and highly recommend it and this scent!

Zoetic Petal Drops Facial Oil: This is my holy grail facial oil! It is light and delicate on the skin and nicely moisturizing. One of the reasons why I love this product so much is because it does not sit heavily on my skin, but absorbs fully. I highly recommend this product and will continue to repurchase it!

Style Sexy Hair Texturizing Spray Clay: This has taken me years to finish, because I do not really have a need for texturizing sprays! I did like product, but it can be difficult to work with. It has a very powerful and direct spray, that can really clump up your hair. I would not repurchase, but it was nice and did what it was supposed to do.

April Empties

I am amazed with the amount of empties that I have been using up these past few months! I am definitely not complaining, because I have a lot to get through, just surprised with how much I have been using!

Big Sexy Hair Dry Shampoo: I did not enjoy this product. It made my hair sticky and did not soak up the oils in my hair. It also smelled strongly of green apples. I will not be repurchasing this.

LUSH Kitchen Ponche Shower Gel: My partner used this up, and I am sad to this go! This was a LUSH Kitchen exclusive from two Christmases ago. I loved this smell, especially on my partner, and it reminds me of LUSH Christmases past.

Nо7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes: I enjoyed these wipes! They do not leave a residue on my face, and they get the majority of my makeup off. I do not know if I like them as much as my Simple face wipes, but they were not bad. I would repurchase them in the future.

L’ORÉAL Total Repair Damage-Erasing Balm: I love hair masks! They are so useful and necessary for my hair. This hair masks helps provide deep moisture for my hair, and allows me to extend the time in between haircuts. I have used this hair masks for years, and I highly recommend it.

Nature Made Vitamin C: I have used up my Vitamin C! I regularly take Vitamin C, D, and a Women’s multivitamin. This was a good Vitamin C, and I would recommend.

LUSH Kitchen Happy Blooming Body Lotion: I very much enjoy Lush Kitchen lotions. They are very light on the skin, fast absorbing, and super moisturizing. I very much enjoy the Happy Blooming scent, and I would repurchase if they ever make it again.

L’ORÉAL Ever Pure Shampoo and Conditioner: I received these from Influenster for the purpose of reviewing. I very much enjoyed these! They made my hair soft and smooth, and I could not stop using them! I highly recommend them.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Whipped Meringue in Saturday A.M. Cartoons: I very much enjoyed this scent and I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar Whipped Meringues! I thought at first, this scent would be too sweet for me as a lotion, but I used this as a night cream and it was a very nice, soothing, sweet touch before bed.

LUSH Aqua Marina: I have spoken about this too many times! It is my holy grail face cleanser, and it works way to well for me to try anything else. Just try it, people!

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water: I very much enjoyed this! This took off any left over makeup without leaving a greasy feeling on my face. My one issue with this product was that it would burn my eyes at times. I would repurchase this product.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Sugar Slushie in Grape Bubblegum: The more I use sugar slushies, the more I enjoy them! This scent is absolute perfection! I would repurchase anything in this scent!

Scoopable Tart Wax in Blueberry Buckle Cake: I really enjoy this scent! I love the scent of blueberries! I very much enjoy scoopable wax, but I will not repurchase this. I am trying to transition to soy-based wax only.

LUSH Eau Roma Water: I enjoy this Toner Water when my face is feeling extra dehydrated and sensitive. I keep a small bottle on hand for those times of need. It is super gentle and hydrating. You can even put this on after makeup and it does not disturb anything.

Jouer Conditioning Lip Treatment: I very much enjoyed this lip balm. It was very nourishing and hydrating. I would not repurchase though. I have drugstore lip treatments that work just as well.

LUSH Yummy Mummy Shower Cream: I enjoyed this shower cream, but it was not a favorite. This was from two Mother’s Days ago. This is a cult favorite for a lot of LUSH fans, and they did not bring it back this year.

Bodycology Blackberry Vanilla Body Spray: This smelled just like B&BW Black Raspberry Vanilla. I received this as a stocking stuffer from my Grandparents a few years ago. It was a nice body spray.

March Empties

I have so many empties this month and I am so happy about it! I am super excited to be working through my stash and getting use out of my products! Does anyone else love using up products?!

Shea Moisture Rescue and Repair Clarifying Shampoo: I did not like this at all. I had to use so much product just to work it through all of my hair. I did not feel like it truly clarified my hair or even got all of the product in it out. I will not be repurchasing, and I am looking for a new clarifying shampoo. Does anyone have any recommendations?

LUSH Tea Tree Toner Water: Do I need to say anything else about this? It is amazing and you need to try it!

Bath Bake Love Eggnog Bath Glaze: This is the first product that I have tried from Bath Bake Love, and I love it! This is an in-shower body conditioner. This was super moisturizing, and smelled amazing! The scent lasts on the skin for hours, and I would definitely repurchase!

Candy Panda Wax Dream Machine Whipped Body Scrub: This is my first time trying a whipped scrub from Candy Panda Wax, and I loved it! It is as good as everyone says, and there is a reason why people rave about them! I love the scent Dream Machine. It is all lavender and HIWTK goodness! I will be repurchasing.

Big Sexy Hair Dry Shampoo: If you know me, you know my love affair with NYM’s Dry Shampoo. I have been using and loving that product for so long, I felt the need to branch out and see what else the dry shampoo community had for me. I did not love this product and I would not repurchase. It is super sticky and does not absorb oil that well. It has a very strong green apple scent too.

LUSH Dreamwash Shower Smoothie: I loved this more than I thought I would! It has a very nice, calming, relaxing lavender scent. It was not super moisturizing, which normally I do not like, but I did not mind it with this. It was super creamy and calming to use on long days and the product lasted a while, since I did not use it every time I showered. I would repurchase, but I am not sure it is still available.

Vera Wang Lovestruck Perfume: I did not like this, and I forced myself to finally use it up. I was way to sweet for me, and at the end of it, you could really smell the alcohol. I would not repurchase.

Dove Curls Defining Mousse: I was pleasantly surprised by this product! It was a nice whipped texture, that smoothed easily through my hair. It did not leave my hair crunchy, but left it soft and manageable. It took care of my frizz, and left my curls defined. I would repurchase.

Young Living Thieve Essential Oil: I love this stuff! It has a nice spicy scent, and I use it when I am sick. It really helps to kick a cold or flu, before it gets worse. I defuse the oil and/or put it on the bottoms of my feet. I highly recommend looking into essential oils.

Nature Made Vitamin D Supplement: I take vitamin D with my vitamin C. I have read that taking them together helps your body absorb the vitamin C. I have yet to pick up another bottle of it, and I running low on my vitamin C, so I will be making a purchase here soon.

Bath and Body Works Stress Relief Aromatherapy Bath and Massage Oil: I very much enjoyed this. It was great to add to baths and my partner and I enjoyed using this for massages. I do not know that I will pick this up again, but I recommend trying it!

OLLY The Perfect Women’s Multi: I have used up another bottle of these! I feel really good about using these, and I feel like I have my life together when regularly taking a multivitamin. Does anyone else ever feel that way? I highly recommend trying these!
