PRODUCT EMPTIES: November & December 2016
Hey guys! I skipped empties last month, so you would think that I would have a whole raft of things to go through here, but when I started digging in the box next to my desk where I keep my empties I found that I actually really didn't have that much on its way out this time around. I do have a few makeup products, though, which always makes an empties post more exciting if you ask me.
Let's go ahead and get into it!
Live Clean Vanilla Oatmeal Liquid Hand Soap*
I've mentioned about a zillion times exactly how much I love the Live Clean Liquid Hand Soaps here on the blog... but let me say it again - I LOVE THE LIVE CLEAN LIQUID HAND SOAPS. Currently, since I finished this one up, I have the Vanilla Peppermint holiday scent in my bathroom, in my kitchen, and in my bathroom at work. Because I am obsessed. But once my holiday babies are gone, this Vanilla Oatmeal version is definitely what I'll go back to. Also, my best friend used my bathroom while this one was in there and texted me the next day like, "Where do I buy that vanilla oatmeal soap? I need it!" It's good. Try it!
L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay Conditioner
I wanted to love the Live Clean Extraordinary Clay products, I really did... But they just didn't work for me the way I expected them to. I think this was a pretty good conditioner overall and it left my hair feeling really nice, but I found that my hair actually got greasy faster using these products. I guess they just didn't work with my chemistry, since I've heard other people absolutely loving them. Will not repurchase.
Herbal Essences Moroccan My Shine Nourishing Shampoo
I used to love love love the Herbal Essences Moroccan My Shine line of products, but I tried them out again recently and they just didn't work for me the way they used to. I suspect it could be because my hair isn't anywhere near as damaged as it used to be, so the really hydrating products aren't really necessary anymore. I don't know what changed, but this just doesn't work for me anymore. Won't repurchase again.
Gorge Hair I'll Make You Look Amazing Daily Spray
Honestly, I don't really remember how I felt about this. I used it up, so I must have liked it, but I don't think it blew my mind or anything. I would probably try it again - and there's a little voice in the back of my head saying that I might actually have another bottle at home - but I don't know if I'd repurchase it based on my complete lack of remembering it.
Pixi Glow Tonic Deluxe Sample
IS PIXI IN CANADA YET?? I know Pixi is coming here and I know it's going to be soon... And it needs to happen because I need to get more of this and really give it a good try. And I want to try other Glow products from Pixi as well. Basically I need Pixi here now so I can purchase this. Are we there yet? Am I dramatic yet? It's a weird day in my head... Anyway, will definitely purchase.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil
This is actually my second bottle of the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil. I had the opportunity to try it through PR and then I did go out and purchase another bottle myself, because I really, really like it. I've got some other cleansing oils that I'm planning on working through and a few others that I want to try, so I don't know if I'll repurchase this anytime soon but I definitely would use it again.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Travel Size
LOVE this mascara. I was a little bit skeptical of the hype when it first came out, but then I tried it and I absolutely love it. I actually have another unopened travel size in my collection at the moment, so I won't be repurchasing any time soon, and I'm not sure I would buy a full size in the future but I would repurchase the travel size.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation
I have so many foundations in my collection that I rarely go through them, but I think this is the second bottle of this foundation that I've gone through in the past year. I really, really like this product and I think I like it even more now that I like my skin more and I don't mind a lighter coverage so much, so I have a feeling this is going to get another repurchase.
Physicians Formula Eye Booster 3-in-1 Liquid Eyeliner
If you read my 2016 Liner & Lashes Favorites, you'll know that this is my absolute favorite liquid eyeliner. Also you'll know that this tube lasted me well over a year without drying out. Honestly, I probably could have gotten a little longer out of this one... but it was old and it was time for a new one. Already repurchased and used almost every day!
Colourpop Brow Pencil
I wasn't a huge fan of this brow pencil when I first bought it, but when I ran out of some of my other pencils I started using it again and I actually kind of started to like it. I'm not sure I liked it enough to order it from the US and pay shipping, but I liked it enough to use it up, which is more than I can say for some other brow pencils in my collection. Unlikely I'll repurchase.
Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Cream Sample
This sample pretty much convinced me that I need a full sized tub of this for my winter skin. It's so rich and silky and gorgeous on the skin that I fell a little bit in love with it. Will probably be picking up a full size in the near future.
THEFACESHOP The Solution Nourishing Face Mask
One of my best friend got me a HUGE selection of sheet masks from THEFACESHOP for Christmas this year and I think there's about 5 of these ones in there... which is good because I really, really, really liked this mask. My skin felt really incredible after this mask and I actually can't wait to do it again.
AMOREPACIFIC Time Response Targeted Eye Masque*
I'll admit it, I'm hoarding these. I think I have 5 more in my collection, but they're so spendy that I'm keeping them for special occasions - because they are really special. The essence in these masks is just incredible and once I take the eye masks off, I squeeze every bit of essence out of the package and pretty much slap it all over my face, neck, and decolletage for maximum impact. These are really, really so amazing.
In closing.... Live Clean hand soaps are the superior hand soaps. Physicians Formula Eye Booster Liquid Liner is my jam. My hair is not the same as it used to be. And is Pixi here yet?
Thanks for reading - especially since it got a little weird towards the end there. Check back next month for more products I've used up!
