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!

    Empties post take the longest!!!

    1. edit *little*

  2. I have never tried them but its nice to know these are available. Thanks for sharing :)


    Do you want to follow each other???

  3. nice list of empties!!
    i have a mini Klorane dry shampoo but i have yet to use it since i am still working on my huge Lush one (powder).
    and i would've thought blueberries smelled better than cucumbers but guess not :)

    1. The smell of the dry shampoo for the Klorane is not my fav but its pretty good!
      I wished it did smell better :(

  4. beautiful!!:):)Your blog is so lovely! I'm thinking, if you want, we can follow each other! It would be great!!
    xoxo Gloria

  5. Oh, I might have to try that Aussie deep conditioner. I'm still looking for the hair masque's that you talked about last time, I'm not sure why I am having trouble finding these things. I love your reviews, I totally base my hair product purchases off of your blog! :)

    xo, Yi-chia

  9. I'm the same way right now with my bf and eating out. He's use to it. I have him pretty much broken in lol

  10. Wow, great job! I really like how you keep it short and whether you would repurchase. When I love a scent that much, I take the bottom of it the jar upside down under hot water and it will slide out, then burn it on a tart burner lol.

    I totally want to do this but I find it so hard to hang on to the empty packaging!

    1. Thanks girly!
      I never thought of doing that to a scent! That's a good idea!
      I just keep it in a little spot.. at the end of the month its hard because I have a pretty big pile.. but its awesome when I get to throw all of it out!

    2. Yes, it totally must be satisfying! :D One of these days...I say that all the time lol! And yes..try it with the get to enjoy it a bit longer! ;)

  11. I've always wondered if those dry shampoos work... So really thanks for the reviews!;)

  12. I am sooooo super impressed with your 100 day shopping ban! You go girl! Also, I have been trying to empty out some of my beauty products to make room for new ones - so after I empty out a few more, I am coming back here to see what I should get next! Thanks for sharing

    1. Awww thanks!!
      Ya its been pretty hard so far.. I want to buy everything.. but I'm making a list for when its all over!

  13. Hi sweetie! I just wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award :)
