January 2013 Empties!


I don’t know about you, but I love reading empties posts. It’s funny how there is this culture built around seeing what kind of beauty products people use up, not to mention the feeling of accomplishment of actually finishing something. Here’s what I finished up, and some mini reviews!

Pantene Beautiful Lengths Replenishing Hair Mask– HG material. I already have another one in my stash, but I’m pretty sure this either got discontinued or is online only now. Any hair mask recommendations?

Five Senses Fresh Peach and Fig Body Spray (2 ounces)– Meh. This was okay but I wouldn’t repurchase.

Sally Hansen Kwik Off Moisturizing Nail Color Remover– I love these polish removers. Definitely would repurchase!

Kiss My Face Moisture Shave in Key Lime– Not wowed by this and would not repurchase.

Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle– I’ve used this for a long time and I’m sure this won’t be the last time I purchase it! It makes my hair really soft.

Formula 10.10.6 So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser– I liked this toner, but not as much as my beloved witch hazel, so I don’t see myself purchasing this again.

Pantene Brunette Expressions Shampoo– Would not repurchase.

Urban Decay De-Slick XL Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray– Finished and have two backups. I can’t live without this stuff!

OPI Ridge Filler– Will most likely repurchase after I finish some other base coats.

John Frieda Precision Foam Colour Conditioner– This came with a box of dye, which we all know those are the best conditioners!

Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish (deluxe sample)– I love this stuff and would consider purchasing it, but I have other exfoliators that I like better.

L’Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream (deluxe sample)- Would not purchase this…smells like baby powder and is honestly not that great for a moisturizer.

Eclos Anti-Aging Instant Radiance Facial Scrub (deluxe sample)– I absolutely LOVE this stuff and am definitely going to pick some up! I thought this was going to be way pricey because of how well it performs. Guess how much it is? $13 at Ulta. It warms up when you use it too. I am hooked!

Pur Minerals Correcting Primer in Peach (deluxe sample)– This sample lasted such a long time. I really like this primer and think it is one of the best I’ve ever used. I would definitely purchase the full size.

Essie Grow Faster base coat– This was okay. I probably won’t repurchase as I like my ridge fillers a lot more.

ELF Eyelid Primer– This was in my Project Pan and it is definitely done, as I can see the bottom of the container. I have another on hand and would repurchase.

Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Mascara– I don’t like it alone, but I like it layered. Would not repurchase but still have another to use.

Sally Hansen Nails & Cuticles Hand Creme (deluxe sample)– Would not repurchase.

Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner– I have heard so many people rave about these and I just don’t get it. They were not spectacular, and I probably wouldn’t purchase them again.

Heartland Fragrance White Tea Epsom Bath Salts– This was a single use from December’s Glossybox. I used this after my car accident and it was definitely soothing but I would not repurchase.

Yikes…that is A LOT of stuff, mostly hair products and hand cream! I’m notorious for having a million half used shampoos. 🙂

    Oh my. Congrats on these neverending empties! You are great, haha!
    How do you do this?
    I never finish anything in a month and I don’t start using new products..how’s that possible? -.-‘

      A lot of these bottles were half gone or 3/4 gone…the shampoo I’ve been using for months! I usually use up at least one tube of mascara in the month though. I wear contacts so I am paranoid!
