Current Empties: July 2014

     I didn't think I had enough empties to do an empties post until I went to go throw something in my bag and noticed it completely full!

Let's look through my trash, shall we?
♥ Skin Care 

Yes to Cucumbers Facial Wipes
Love these! Have already repurchased and will continue to do so.  The scent is fresh and yummy and they don't burn my eyes when I wake off my eye makeup.  These don't take everything off, but I have yet to find a wipe that does.

Yes to Grapefruits Wipes
I'm glad I only had these in the sample size, because I don't care for them as much as the cucumber wipes.  The grapefruit scent burns a little and I just don't care for the formula.  I won't be repurchasing this.

Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair Dark Circle Eye Cream
This eye cream wasn't a hit, but it wasn't really a miss for me either.  I didn't notice any lightening in my under eye circles, but it did leave them feeling moisturized and my makeup applied nicely over this.  I'm on the hunt for a new and more natural eye cream though, so I probably won't be repurchasing.

Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover
I've had this little sample size of this forever and just leave it in my travel bag for when I take trips.  It does a nice job of taking off heavy eye makeup, but even after using this thoroughly, I still sometimes have some left over liner or mascara the next day.  I won't be repurchasing this.

Skyn Iceland Eye Gels
My friend ordered a box of these from Ulta and gave me one set.  I popped them on the fridge and placed them under my eyes on a particularly stressful day.  I loved the feel of them and while my under eye skin felt smoother underneath, I didn't see any noticeable brightening effect.  I love eye gels, but these are a bit pricey so I won't be repurchasing these particular ones.

♥  Hair Care 

Samy Fat Hair Hair Spray
If you are going to tease your hair and need it to stay, this is the hairspray to use.  My best friend Ally is the queen of the tease, and this is the only hairspray she will use.

Lush Big Shampoo
This is my favorite clarifying or deep clean shampoo.  I've repurchased this before and a new one is in my shower already!

♥  Makeup 

Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascara
This was my first time trying this mascara after seeing a lot of hype about it on Youtube.  I'm so glad I tried it!  I love it!  The formula is amazing and something about it makes my eyes pop under my glasses, which is hard to do.  If you are looking for a great cruelty free drugstore mascara, look no further!  I already have a backup in my collection.

It Cosmetics Brow Power Pencil
I think I may have received this in a QVC BeautyTube way back when.  It's an amazing brow pencil and I love how thin it is, but I can't justify spending so much on a brow product so I most likely won't be repurchasing.

ELF Makeup Remover Pen
If you have never tried one of these babies, you have to!  This is the best product to keep in your bag to clean up any makeup smudges on the go.  I have already repurchased another one!


♥  Body Care 

Wet Wipes
My friend Lori gave me these in my Christmas present, and I don't know where they are from but the packaging alone is worth it!  I used these to wipe down after working out or even wipe off my weights when I sweated all over them.  If I find them again, I will be repurchasing.

The Body Shop Dreams Unlimited Body Butter
My dad got me this as a stocking stuffer, and while the formula moisturizes superbly, I didn't love the scent.  Plus, there are so many more natural body butters out there that I would rather try one of those.  I won't be repurchasing.

Fortune Cookie Soap Native Nectar Body Wash
I received this in my summer Fortune Cookie Soap Box and it was LOVE!  It smelled heavenly and lathered nicely.  I'm debating on purchasing this in the full size, but I have so many body washes to go through it's insane.

Healthy Peppermint Foot Mask
I think I bought this at the Mitsuwa Market when I went with Tammy and Vanessa last summer.  I need to stock up on these because it felt so refreshing to have these on my tired and battered summer feet.  I will be repurchasing!


♥  Misc. 

Swispers Cotton Rounds
I bought a 3 pack of these cotton rounds from Harmon, and they are my favorite.  Yes, I understand it's weird to have a favorite cotton round, but these are them.  They don't fall apart or leave fuzzy residue all over.  I will be repurchasing@

BBW Sugared Vanilla Wish Soap
I love any of the BBW's vanilla scents and this one is no exception.  I'm not one who uses seasonal soaps during the appropriate season, hence why this is in my July empties.  When Christmas time comes around, I will be repurchasing this scent.

BBW Halloween Candy Apple Soap
I like using fruit scented soaps in the kitchen and this one smelled a bit too sticky sweet for my liking. I will not be repurchasing this scent.

BBW Paris Daydream Candle
It's no secret that I love the candles from Bath and Body Works.  This one was no exception.  If you love a more manly scent, this one is perfect.  I have so many other scents from them I want to try, but I will most likely be repurchasing this baby.

Lucky Vitamin One Daily Energy Vitamin
I bought this from Luckyvitamin.com and only tried a few vitamins, so this isn't technically an empty.  I always have my vitamins after a meal and no matter what time of day I tried this vitamin, it made my stomach seriously upset.  So no, I will not be repurchasing!

Those Yes 2 face wipes and I do NOT get along, they sting like crazy for me. I've been reaching for my Walgreens EOS imitation lipbalm, I swear it's better than the EOS brand & my Clinique All About Eyes cream since Kaley is teething and hasn't been sleeping.
