Y'all, I am so sorry for taking such an extended blogging break, I feel like this semester of school starting really shocked my system-it's the senioritis I think.

Today I wanted to share something with you that I haven't done before on the blog, an Empties post!

These are all the products that I finished up and I just want to share my thoughts on each of them as well as tell you whether or not I repurchased or will be repurchasing them!

First up is the Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate & Mango Infusions body wash.
This stuff smells great & it's moisturizing. I would probably repurchase it, but I've got an entire closet of body washes that people have given me or that I've stockpiled from the semi-annual sales at Bath & Body Works. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to try it though!

After that is the Silk Effects Razor from Schick. This is one that I haven't used in a while, I liked it just fine but I decided to opt for disposable razors (they're easier for traveling because I can toss them before I come back home!) But this is a great razor if you're looking for a non-disposable one :)

The Colgate Max Fresh toothpaste is the absolute best toothpaste ever. It's so minty & I've been using it for as long as I can remember. Of course I repurchased this one & when I run out of my new one I'll be buying it again.

The Neutrogena Cleansing Makeup Removing Wipes are my all-time favorite wipes.
I used up two packages & then I decided to try the Pond's wipes (they were a dollar or two cheaper) but I'll review those later...needless to say, I'll be swapping back to the Neutrogena ones next time!

The Secret Outlast deodorant is my all time favorite.
I don't usually sweat, it really just doesn't happen to me-even when I'm a complete beast in the gym.
But it could just be because I use this deodorant religiously.
It smells great & it lasts a long time even if I use it twice a day.

Rimmel's Stay Matte Primer was a Target impulse buy, mostly because I need something to help my makeup last and to prevent me from getting so so shiny throughout the day (any tips, y'all?!)
This didn't really do anything, in my opinion, so I wouldn't repurchase.

Lastly is my all-time favorite foundation, Covergirl Clean Oil Control Foundation.
Just to be honest, that statement isn't really true-it's not my all time favorite.
I haven't really tried another foundation, so if you have any better ones please let me know!
But this foundation does the job. It's light coverage (I probably need something a little heavier) but it doesn't weigh me down. It's a toss up as to whether I would recommend it, but I will keep buying it until someone recommends something better.

Thanks for reading this y'all, I hope y'all are glad that I came back around!

Let me know if y'all like this type of post?

Until next time. . .



  1. You should check out the foundation I reviewed in my Makeup Monday post! You might like it! Also... I can't wait to see your review on the PONDS wipes. I feel that we share an opinion ;) Thanks for reviewing the primer! I wanted to try but I won't now!
