May 2013 Empties

Hey Everyone!

It's that time again... empties time. I love this time of month.. you can check out my empties.. I can check your empties and I end up being one happy gal.
 I've been REALLY lazy.. I mean not wanting to do anything lazy except lay and watch Sex and the City reruns all day long. Am I the only one that goes through these periods in their life? I think I'm going through this rut because of all the high stress from school.. I can actually sit and relax and not think about anything. I should be more productive.. but whateves.. I gots 3 more months to do that!
Anyhoo.. Onto my Empties!



1. Jergens Natural Glow (Medium Skin Tone)- I've used this product before.. and did a review here on it if you would like to check it out... but I got a sample of the new formula for this product and the smell is soo much better! Good Job Jergens!

2. Aussie Heat Protecting Shine Spray- I like the actual product for this spray but the only downfall is the spray bottle. When using this product you want to evenly distribute the product on your hair... but its kinda hard when the mist is a one squirt shot. I accidently squirt the product right into my ear once too.. not good. If Aussie made a better mist bottle I would def give it another chance.
Would Not Repurchase

3. Philosophy Shower Gel (Creme Brulee)- I reviewed this product in my last months empties. I wouldn't get this scent though again. It didn't really smell like creme brulee at all to me!
Would Not Repurchase

4. Sebastian Potion 9 Wearable Styling Treatment- I seriously have had this product for over 2 years.. a little bit of this product does go a long way. I loved using this product as my leave-in treatment for my hair but I think I have decided for my hair type.. I like leave-in sprays a lot better.. and its less heavy for my hair. It is though a really great product.
Maybe Would Repurchase

5. Satin Care Shave Gel (Original Scent)- I've been using Satin Care products for years now. I don't even know if there is a difference from other brands or not but this shave gel has been working out for me. I got this sample from a P&G free pack. 
Always Purchase

6. C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve- This stuff is amazing! I've had this little product for over a year and a half now and finally made it to the bottom. It's going to be weird not having this in my purse now. It was always my go to lip balm for when my lips are dry and I also used it once and awhile on my elbows.. my friend used it on her knees once.... It's just a great all around product to use. I def would recommend it.
Holy Grail

7. Simple Eye Makeup Remover- I really do think this product is great.. it takes off all my makeup really well.. its not oily like some other products I've used before.. no harsh smells.. but would I buy this product.. no. The reason is because I do like a little oil to my removers.. I feel like when theres a little oil.. my makeup comes off smoother and easier. I would recommend though this product to people with sensitive skin because it would be a really great product for them.
Would Not Buy

8. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo Cleanser- I use to use La Roche-Posay products long time ago and I stopped using it because I figured out that their products were breaking me out not helping with my breakouts. Ever since I stopped using it my skin was a lot better. Well I finished up my Dermalogica sample cleanser last month which I LOVED... but I had so more samples to get through before I went out and bought a full sized bottle. Long story short.. I bought the Dermalogica cleanser because La Roche-Posay products were breaking me out again! I can't stand it when I get cystic acne because it takes forever for the bumps to go away.. so now I'm dealing with that problem now.
Would Not Buy

9. The Body Shop Shampoo (Banana)- I've heard soo many wonderful things about this shampoo over the years and my friend bought me this bottle for me to try it out. The smell... is absolutely amazing... it smells just like when you freshly peel a banana.. so amazing. The product itself for me was a dud... it didn't really do much for my hair.. it took me over a year to finish this product just for that reason alone.
Would Not Buy

10. Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster- I really liked this serum... its very light weight and is great for people to need some extra love to their dry skin. Since I went and bought a full size cleanser from them.. I asked them for a couple samples. So you'll be seeing some more reviews on the samples I got.
Would Buy

11. La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes- I actually really liked these wipes! I got this sample from a IPSY Glam Bag... the wipe itself isn't rough on my skin and the scent of the wipe is really refreshing. I would consider trying more of these wipes in the future.
Would Buy

12. Bath and Body Works Candle (Sage Cucumber)- Bought this candle last year in a sale they had going on. I wouldn't repurchase this sent though....I kinda like the scent better when the candle is not burning.. weird I know.. but you all know I love me some BBW candles...
Would Repurchase...Not the Scent

There ya have it... All my Empties for the month of May!

  1. You definitely deserve a break after being stressed out with school for 8 months! I just picked up the Body Shop Banana Shampoo and Conditioner and that's too bad that it didn't work...I wonder how it'll work out for me?
    Great job with the empties and enjoy not having anything to do for awhile!

  2. I use Smith's Rosebud Salve, which I assume is like the C.O. Bigelow version. I've had mine for ages... it'll definitely be a repeat purchase if/when I finally use mine up!
