January 2013 Empties

Hey Everyone!

I just realized that I haven't posted anything since my last empties post... yep true slacker here. I'm really trying to get into the groove of school again. This semester is going to be the hardest semester out of the two years of school... I cannot wait......*sarcasm* I didn't use up many products this month.. I think its because I had a lot of empties last month! 

Just a update.. I'm doing well on my shopping ban! I still have not bought anything... just food and gas with an exception of two 5 pound weights from National Sport.. I've been working out since January 2nd and have already lost 10 pounds! Pretty crazy of you ask me.. so I gave myself the OK to buy the weights... $20 in total.. not bad. 

So I ran out of a couple things since my shopping ban...

Bubble Bath 
Dry Shampoo

Thank goodness my mother bought a bottle of dry shampoo and told me she didn't like it.. so she gave it to me.. so that should hold me over for a little bit. I also finished all my Lush products I got from Christmas and a Bubble Bath from BBW..... I take a lot of baths.. its my way of de-stressing.

Enough blabber... Lets start reviewing!

1. Schwarzkopf Got 2b Dry Shampoo- At first I really did like this product.. but the more I used it.. the less I liked it. I ended up hating the smell of it and it didn't really spray a powder like the other dry shampoos I have used. I have one more bottle of this since my mother bought one for me to have...Would Not Repurchase

2. Quo Nail Polish Remover Pump- I love this product! I don't know having a pump for a nail polish remover is wonderful! The product is also really great! Takes off all my glitter nail that's always a plus! Would Repurchase

3. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Full Splender Conditioner- Not a bad product at all! The smell is nice and it didn't make my hair heavy like some other conditioners do! It's not holy grail or anything though. Would Not Repurchase

4. Biotherm Blue Therapy Serum- It didn't go on greasy and had a light scent to it.. I don't use serums for my face because I tend to break out from them. I didn't notice any wonders from this sample. Would Not Purchase

5. Covergirl Trublend Pressed Powder (Translucent Honey)- I've had this powder for so long now. I used it to set my foundation and BB creams but I know its too heavy for that. Sometimes when I didn't want to use any foundation.. I'd just use this. I want to try other powders out there so... Would Not Repurchase

6. O.P.I Avojuice Skin Quenchers (Winter Huckleberry)- Yes another mini sample of of this lotion.. I do like the scent this time.. but would I buy it again for the smell.. no... I liked other scents more than this one. Would Repurchase... Not The Scent

7. BBW Bubble Bath (Black Raspberry Vanilla)- As you know I'm a fan of the BBW bubble baths.. they are not super moisturizing but the bubbles are great! :) This scent is wonderful.. "vine-ripened berries drenched in vanilla cream" Would Repurchase 

8. Perfume Samples-
Eternity Aqua- Wayyy too strong for me.. and I didn't like the scent at all! Would Not Purchase

There ya have it! All my empties for the month of January!

December 2012 Empties

Hey Everyone!

I'm a little late posting this..just because of all the craziness with the holidays and such. I think I did pretty well for the products I have used up.. if you ask me.
Just so ya know I'm also going to be doing a 100 DAY SHOPPING BAN. Ya you heard right. I'm not going to spend any money till April 10th. I got the idea from Jenna on her blog and thought what a great idea! 
The only things I'm going to be spending money on is gas and food. The food part I'm going to make.. I'm trying not to go out to eat.. well.. unless my boyfriend is paying. ;)
So anyways.. lets start reviewing!

1. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner- I love this conditioner.. the smell is amazing and keeps my hair feeling soft and doesn't weight my hair down either like some other deep conditioners do. Would Repurchase

2. BBW Candles (Pumpkin Patch) & (Pomegranate Lemonade)- Finally used up a couple of my candles during the holidays.. both scents are to die for and would recommend either one of them. I hope they have the pomegranate one again this summer! Would Repurchase

3. Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Polish (Destiny)- I was in LOVE with these lip polishes.. I bought about 5 of them at once.. and they go for $23 a pop. I finally finished one of them. I love the tingling sensation it gives you when your wearing it. The colour Destiny is like a peachy/pink. Would Repurchase 

4. Yes To Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes- As you know I tried the cucumber towelettes to this brand and loved them.. so I decided to try out this ones. A let down.. I didn't like the smell and I thought the wipes were more moistened for the cucumber wipes. Would Not Repurchase

5. Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss (Hoola)- I was so happy to get this lip gloss as a gift from Luxe Box when I went to Toronto. It just came out too when I received it.. so I was feeling like a lucky person. I do like how its glossy and it didn't have a lot of colour but it didn't moisturize my lips at all.. and when I would wear it often I felt my lips getting more dry. Would Not Repurchase

6. DDF Advanced Firming Cream- I've been using this little sample from Luxe Box. A little bit goes a long way. I didn't like the smell at all for this cream and I really didn't find a difference in my skin at all.
Would Not Repurchase

7. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat- My favourite top coat to use on my nails! It makes my nails soo shiny and beautiful.  Already Repurchased

8. O.P.I Avojuice Skin Quenchers (Cran & Berry)- As you know this is my favourite kinda of lotion to throw into my purse but not my favourite scent. Not a good smell at all.. and the people around me hated the scent too.. lets just say I finished this baby fast! Would Repurchase... Not The Scent

9.  Fekkai Glossing Cream- I'm glad I only got a sample of this. It made my hair feel really oily after applying it to the ends of my hair. I did use it only when I had dry hair.. maybe it would work better if my hair was wet. Would Not Repurchase 

10. Eucerin Complete Repair Daily Moisturizing Lotion- Didn't find this sample to be moisturizing at all. No smell to it.. for people looking for fragrance-free products. Would Not Repurchase

11. Dove Dry Shampoo- I go through dry shampoo like its going outta style! Already did a review for this if you like to look.... HERE 

12. Klorane Dry Shampoo- I also have been through a couple of these too... if you would like to see my review... HERE

13.  BBW Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel (Mai Tai Mango)- Getting through some of the hand sanitizers I bought this summer. I did like the smell in the store.. but when I was wearing it.. I didn't like it anymore.
Would Repurchase... Not The Scent

14. Perfume Samples-
Miss Pucci- I really like this scent. I would wear this out for a night time scent. Would Purchase
Versace Yellow Diamond- I like my sample of Bright Crystal better than this one.. and felt like it didn't last on me either. Would Not Purchase
Ralph Lauren Romance- I remember when this scent was really big.. I never bought it.. and still would not buy it now.. just not for me. Would Not Purchase
Swarovski Aura- I really liked this scent.. another one I would wear at night time. Would Purchase

There ya have it! All my empties for the month of December! Seriously it took me 3 days to finish this blog post.. I need to get on it!
