April Empties

Leave a Comment
Hi everyone! I have quite a bit of empties today. I didn't have a lot of empties at the end of March, so I waited to post. I think I have plenty for you now!

Bath & Body Care

Aura Cacia Lavender Essential Oil - I enjoy a few drops of this in a bath with Epsom salts after a long day. Some people's skin cannot tolerate certain essential oils, but I supposed that's also true for many other things. I already have a new bottle of lavender.

Nair Hair Remover Silky Sensations Pomegranate and Soy - I don't use a lot of hair remover, but this one was okay. I haven't repurchased it yet, but I probably will. 

Banana Boat UltraMist Protect & Hydrate Clear Spray SPF 50+ - They spray sunscreens from Banana Boat are very convenient. This one absorbs quickly, doesn't feel greasy, and doesn't have a strong smell. I need all of those things for an everyday sunscreen. I plan on repurchasing this.

e.l.f. Lotion Wipes - Vanilla and Coconut - I really enjoyed using these lotion wipes. They were easy and convenient. These are great if you need lotion on the go. I'm glad that I tried them out, but I won't repurchase them because they have parabens. Also, I felt a bit wasteful throwing away the wipes. I already use enough wipes without using lotion wipes.


Mia Mariu Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser - This was a nice cleanser that got sent to me for review. See review here. It was a great cleanser for my combination skin. I have quite a stash of cleansers at the moment, so I won't be repurchasing any until I use up a few.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - These end up in every empties post, so I'm sure you've heard enough of me raving about these. I used up a 7-count and a 25-count pack. These are my favorite of the makeup wipes.

Perricone MD Blue Plasma - I loved this sample and raved about it in my January Favorites. I could tell a difference in my skin when I was using this. It's expensive, but I do plan on repurchasing. I've been trying to hold off and use what I have, but so far, nothing has compared to this.

Hair Care

Naturtint Permanent Hair Color - Honey Blonde - This is the best hair color I have ever used. The shade is very close to my natural hair color, so it looks very natural on me. This has been the only color I have used in about 4 years because it is gentle on my scalp. I highly recommend this brand if you color your hair regularly. It can be found at many health food stores and at drugstore.com.

It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin - I got this full size sample from Ulta. I really like the It's a 10 leave-in sprays. I am currently using the one for blondes.


Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Concealer - Light - This is a 2-in-1 concealer with a liquid concealer on one side and a concealer stick on the other. I used the liquid under my eyes and the stick for any blemishes on my face. It wasn't a bad product, but it wasn't so great that I would repurchase.

Inglot Freedom System AMC Pressed Powder - 55 - This powder was a great color match for me, and I liked how it looked on my skin. I used it to set my makeup. It was a good powder but not the best one I've ever used. I probably won't repurchase.

Ck One Mascara - I got this mascara as a free birthday gift from Ulta. I didn't like it. It was too dry for me and very difficult to remove. I stopped using it because my lashes were falling every time I removed my makeup.

Avon Big & Daring Volume Mascara - I had the same issue with this mascara. I've tried several of Avon's mascaras over the last 2 years, and I haven't been all that impressed. Maybe I just haven't tried the right one.

Armani Eyes To Kill Excess Mascara - This is one of my favorite mascaras. I have a review of it here. It's expensive, but I will repurchase eventually.

Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara - I got this mascara sample from Sephora. I liked how the mascara made my lashes look, but the cone-shaped wand was a bit cumbersome to use. I wouldn't purchase a full size.


Oleavine All Natural Konjac Sponge - I've used this sponge for several months, and it's just time to toss it. You can sanatize it, but it's starting to break down. I really enjoyed this sponge, and I have a review here.

BH Cosmetics Glitter Nail File -  I wore this nail file out! I have a couple of nail cubes from Ulta that I really like using right now.


Sedu Revolution 4000i Hair Dryer - I've had this hair dryer for maybe 5 years, so I guess I shouldn't be too upset that it just didn't turn on one day. That being said, this is a really amazing hair dryer, and it is priced as such. It really is worth every penny, but I really don't want to fork over the money for another one right now. I got a Revlon hair dryer at TJMaxx, and used it for the first time today. It's not the same -- at all. I'm going to have to get a better hair dryer eventually. 

That leaves my product empties count at 34 for the year. I decided not to include tools in my empties count. Have you used any of these products?
