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!
If you have any questions or comments about any of these products let me know with a comment below!

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?


  1. The nail polish remover pump sounds really good

  2. The BBW Bubble Bath scent sounds amazing! I need to look for that nail polish remover next time I'm at SDM! I just posted an empties post on my blog too :)

  3. I've tried the BBW bubble bath & JF Volume Shampoo/Conditioner - I actually enjoyed both products. For my hair the JF works really well to give it some volume in comparison to some of the other volume lines of shampoo

  4. Nail polish remover pumps are SO AWESOME. I just bought the Quo one for my sister and I think I might have to get one for myself!

    1. They are awesome! Def get one for yourself!
      I don't know why I like the pump so much.. but I do!

  5. Congratulations on the lost weight! Keep at it, as long as you keep up with these empties post, cause man, I love 'em.

    1. Thanks!! Awww that's soo sweet! I love empties posts too.. makes me happy when I finish a product!

  6. I love black raspberry vanilla! great empties! :)

  7. I'm really happy to hear about the Quo nail polish remover. What is the price like on that? I have one bottle of the Julep that came in the boxes...but no way am I spending that much on polish remover! Plus, I love quo and I love SDM. :P

  8. Oh I'd love to try the nail polish remover. Getting glitter polish off is always such a task, so anything to make it easier would be fabulous.
