Summer 2015 Beauty Empties

Leave a Comment
It has been a couple of months since I have done an empties post, and I have accumulated quite a lot of empties. My empties bag has been overflowing, so here they are in no particular order!

Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine - I love this lip butter. It's very moisturizing on the lips and smells so good. I already have another one.

From the Lab Renewing Eye Serum No. 603 - This was a giveaway win that I thoroughly enjoyed. I would consider buying this eye serum. It was very moisturizing without feeling too heavy.

OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum - This is a great serum for oily skin or warm weather. It gave just the right amount of hydration for my skin. I would repurchase.

Valentia Even Glow Serum - I enjoyed using this vitamin C serum before it got so hot out. It would probably be a little too rich for my skin in the heat right now. 

Naturtint Hair Color in Honey Blonde - This hair color is the easiest on my scalp, and this particular color looks the most natural on me. 

Banana Boat Sport Performance SPF 50+ - This sunscreen is easy to apply and isn't sticky or greasy. There's no strong scent to it, so it's a great option for the entire family. I would get this again.

L'Oreal Sublime Sun SPF 30 - This was left over from last summer, so I'm throwing it out with a tiny bit left in it. I think this has been discontinued, so I can't really recommend it or buy it again.

Pretty Nails Strengthening Nail Polish Remover - I'm not picky when it comes to a brand of acetone, so this one is from Big Lots. You can buy the pump top bottles from Target, so I just pour my cheap stuff into that. 

Sally Hansen Spray On-Shower Off Hair Remover - This stuff is the absolute worst! It barely works at all. There are far better hair removers out there.

Bath & Body Works Beautiful Day Shower Gel - I like Bath & Body Works' shower gels. I enjoy the unique scents that they have, and I find great deals on these during the Semi-Annual Sales.

Simple Eye Make-Up Remover - This remover was very easy on my eyes and didn't sting. I really liked using this in the morning to make sure there wasn't anything left over before I did my makeup. I would buy this again.

OPI Nail Envy For Healthy Maintenance - I love to use the Nail Envy strengtheners as a base coat for all of my manicures. I got the Healthy Maintenance version by mistake, but I couldn't tell a difference from the original. I'm using a different brand right now, but I would buy Nail Envy again. 

Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes - As you can see, I used up two full size packs and a travel pack of these wipes. They're still my favorite.

elf Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths - These were okay. They removed my makeup, but they irritated my eyes a little bit. I think I have another pack of these, but I won't be getting any more.

Olay Fresh Effects Deluxe Make-Up Removal Wet Cloths - These wipes had a lot of product on them, so there was no chance of them drying out. They had a nice scent and worked really well. I might try these out again.

Simple Eye Make-Up Remover Pads - These pads are very practical for me right now because I'm not wearing much makeup on my face most days, but I still wear at least a little liner and mascara every day. I really liked these.

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer in Fair - This is a very easy to use undereye concealer. It's not super heavy duty, but it is brightening under the eyes and doesn't get cakey or crease. I would use this again.

Buxom Insider Eyeliner in Onyx - I think this has been discontinued. It's just an automatic black pencil liner. It was good, but nothing irreplaceable. 

L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara in Midnight Black - This is a beautiful mascara. I got volume and definition. No clumping at all. I would use this again.

Mineral Fusion Lengthening Mascara in Graphite - I enjoyed wearing this on minimal makeup days. My lashes did look longer and defined, but usually I prefer volume. It's not bad, but I would like to try the volumizing mascara from Mineral Fusion if I get a full size.

Now on to some samples!
Benefit The Porefessinal - I have another deluxe sample of this. It's a great primer if you have oily skin. I use it on my nose if I know I'm going to have a long day.

Garnier BB Cream Daily Anti-Acne in Light/Medium - I really liked using this sample. I have the one from oily skin in the full size, but I would replace it with the anti-acne. 

Paul Mitchell Marula Oil - This sample was just okay. I used the entire sample on my hair, so I really over-applied it. The amount really weighed my hair down and made it look greasy. Not for me.

Spongellé Body Wash Infused Buffer in Bulgarian Rose (Not pictured) - I have a review here. This was a very nice and luxurious body buffer. I really liked the rose scent. I will be reviewing another similar product from this company soon.

So far this summer, I have used up a whopping 26 products. That brings my total empties count for the year up to 60. There are a few items that I have almost finished, so I should have even more empties before you know it!

What have you used up recently? Have you found a new favorite? I always want to know!
Let's be friends!
