MARCH EMPTIES

April 04, 2016


    Let's cut to the chase and admire this heaping pile of plastic and glass. Sigh. Only us folks in the beauty community get so excited at such a sight.

Here goes...

Coconut Oil- I use this to oil pull, cook, take my makeup off. There will forever be a jar of this in our home.

Wet n Wild Take on the Day Eye primer - This product has been discontinued, repackaged, and relaunched under the name Wet n Wild Photo Focus Eyeshadow primer.

    Would I buy it again? I was terrified when this was discontinued and relaunched. Typically that's a kiss of death for the consumer. I am pleased to announce this is the same product I knew and still love. Even more so now, because the packaging no longer rubs off! ~$5

Miss Spa sheet masks - Available at Target, Amazon, Rite Aid... $1.99- $2.99

    Would I buy them again? Heck yes! After being extremely underwhelmed by the hyped up Tony Moly brand sheet masks, I had low hopes for these. However, the morning after using the one focused on skin hydration, I was shocked at the plumpness in my skin. Still, the hydrating one is probably my favorite.

NYX Automatic Eyebrow Pencil in Taupe - I purchased this last September (2015). I fill in my brows every single day (even weekends). This just ran out mid March! ~$5.99

    Would I buy it again? Yes, and I did right when I noticed my old one wouldn't twist up again. There's thousands of brow products out there, but this product, to me, is a "why fix it if it isn't broken," type deal. I love this thing, it's cheap and it stays put through sweat, rain, and the occasional "oops I rubbed my face."

Suave Weatherproof Cream - I've used quite a few bottles of this stuff. Smells great and super affordable!

    Would I buy it again? I do love this product, (more here) but like all products, you tend to get bored. I got bored and I'm exploring other products for the time being. I totally see myself going back to this eventually though, it really is an awesome product for curls! ~$5

L'Oreal Hair Mask - Perhaps the exact one above has been discontinued? I couldn't find it anywhere in internet world. Linked is a similar yellow version, though I have yet to try that one.

    Would I buy it again? Maybe. Honestly, I may not be able to. It's a little bummer, since this one really did great things to my hair! Not to mention it smelled amazing! ~$7


The Honest Company Sweet Vanilla Orange Shampoo & Body wash -  This has been my go to product for Pen since she was about 6 months old.

    Would I buy it again? Obviously. However this has recently undergone a packaging change, for the better. There's now a pump and they give you 10 oz rather than 8 oz for the same price! ~$9.99 click link above, it's on sale right now for $8.99!

Burt's Bees Richly Replenishing Lotion - Pen gets odd bumpy/ texture on her torso. It's colorless, but you can feel it. This is the only lotion I have found that gets rid of it completely.

    Would I buy it again? Yes! Great stuff, moisturizing and healing, and easy to find! ~$7.99

Source of Life Multivitamin - I purchased these from our local health food store. Linked, is the brand, though not the exact bottle via Amazon.

    Would I buy it again? NO. I have always taken a multivitamin. I have low iron, and other vitamin deficiencies. That was all while eating meat. I knew when I stopped eating red meat and poultry, that I'd need a multivitamin to even myself out. These had a horrible taste and smell and were stupidly expensive. ~$30.00 I really only need B-12, Vit D, and Vit. C. I take one of each of those daily and feel as if they are just as effective and don't taste disgusting.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix pads - I still feel the same way about these as I did in this post, but may have found something a little more cost effective. More to come on that in the future empty posts! These are excellent though! ~$12.99

Giovanni 2Chic Ultra Repair Leave in Conditioner Blackberry and Coconut Milk - This is marketed as "natural" and pretty affordable. Available at Target, Walmart and multiple drugstores.

    Would I buy it again? No. As much as I wanted this to work, something about the fragrance just was agreeing with me. It also left my hair rather greasy feeling than anything else.


Thayers Alcohol Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel - Certified organic, light fragrance, and paraben free! Amazing for troubled skin.

    Would I buy it again? Yes. At the moment, I do not have this in my cabinet, but I know as soon as I make it through a few other products this is being repurchased. It's a perfect night time toner and did really well with my hormonal acne. It wasn't until recently that I really realized I needed this stuff again. I will say even being alcohol free, it's a tad drying, but using a super hydrating moisturizer that works with combo skin is the best way to combat this. ~$10-$12

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge - Expect to see one of these in my empties every few months. These are my preferred foundation and concealer tool! I last used one in December. ~$5-6

Tinkle Eyebrow razors - I use these to "shave my face."

    Would I buy them again? Heck yes! Previously I was using some by Revlon that were not good at all. These are just the right amount of sharp and a ton of bang for your buck! ~$5 for a pack of three!

Colgate Optic White toothpaste - Not that I'm done with this stuff, but I did recently buy a new brand. We will see when it's empty if I'm coming back to this stuff, but it really is great and leaves you feeling so clean! ~$4

Boots Botanics Rose Water Toning Spritz - I've been using this stuff since August! Totally not stopping any time soon! psssttt it's $2 cheaper online at Target.com! ~$6.29-$8.29

Bumble & Bumble Creme de Coco shampoo - This brand is super hyped up and this travel sized shampoo has been with me for far too long.

    Would I buy it again? No. Unfortunately it really just didn't do anything for me. It wasn't bad, but I could live without it. If you are interest in trying this yummy smelling product, it's on super sale right now at Walmart.com ~$12.15- $25.00

phew.... tired? I know I am. That was a heck of a lot of products! It's amazing what you can use up! 
What did you use up this month?
