Happy Thursday y'all!
I hope that y'all are all having a great week!
I'm hoping this week honestly slows down some, I've had this week off of teaching because it's been my school's Fall break and it has been a nice little treat :)
But this weekend I have a lot to look forward to-a little date night action with my best friend, a wedding, and hopefully a lazy Sunday.
Today I wanted to share with you my empties that I've been trying to burn through.
Y'all know that at the beginning of this year I was trying to cut down on the number of beauty related products that I have in my cabinets and use up what I have before buying more.
I'll let you know a yes or no to whether I'll be repurchasing these!
As y'all can see I have a little bit of everything. . .
So let's jump right in!
This is the hand soap that made me fall in love with the foaming soaps from B&BW.
I keep the foaming soaps in our guest bath.
This is the best scent, it's so clean and fresh.
Unfortunately they no longer have this scent, but I linked the Kitchen Lemon scent which is almost identical!
This is a definite yes in the repurchasing area.
Olay Satin Care Shave Gel in Sugarberry
I picked this up on sale at Target and it's actually one of the best shave gels I've picked up. If it was ever on sale again I would probably buy it again.
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes
If you've been on this blog for an Empties post before then you should know I'm totally brand-loyal to these wipes-there are none like these!
I will be repurchasing these in bulk this weekend when my hubby and I go to Sam's!
Yes to Carrots Nourishing Facial Moisturizer
I bought this stuff on a whim (I'm terrible, I know) but it was such a good moisturizer!
I love that it has SPF and it was really thick and nice, I would definitely repurchase this if I didn't have several other moisturizers to use up.
Opta-Free Replenish Contact Solution
This may seem totally random to include, but I figured some of my followers surely wore contacts like I do!
This is my favorite solution to use, it keeps my contacts really soft & clean.
Cayenne Caramel Bath & Body Works Candle
Can I be the first to say that I have the hardest time saying goodbye to candles?
When they don't burn anymore, I place the candles on my candle melter (hard to explain lol) and use them up that way!
But this one finally succumbed to not smelling anymore, so I finally have to get rid of it :(
If Bath & Body Works was still selling this scent, you best bet I would be purchasing it!
Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo Pure Clean
I totally misunderstood this bottle of shampoo when I bought it, I thought it was a purifying shampoo (to use to get buildup off of my hair) but it isn't...
It's made with natural products & is a good shampoo, but just not for what I bought it for.
Won't be repurchasing this one again.
Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer
I found this in my makeup stash and decided to use it again & was pleasantly surprised!
I couldn't even remember why I stopped using it!
It helps my makeup last all day long, which is super important when I have student teaching at the beginning of the day and then classes that last into the night!
I'll be purchasing this one again soon :)
L'Oreal True Match Mineral Powder
I love this makeup & I'm pretty upset that I can't find it at my Target anymore...they must have discontinued it :(
If anyone sees this, please let me know where I can maybe find it!
I love how it set my makeup and truly kept my face matte all day long.
I would repurchase this if I could find it!
Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Pressed Powder
I love this powder and have already repurchased it, it keeps my face really matte and doesn't leave a weird shade because it's translucent!
I would highly recommend it for a great drugstore product.
Peel Off Cucumber Masque
I picked this up at Target just because I love doing a face mask occasionally, I thought I would really like it but. . .I wasn't really impressed.
It was really sticky and the smell was off.
I wouldn't repurchase this or recommend it.
Age Perfect Cell Renewal Day Cream by L'Oreal (Sample)
This was a magazine sample, I always try to use them because hello, free product.
This is a product that I actually really liked and I'm glad I tried it!
It was really thick and creamy, and the smell y'all. I love it!
I will be using the coupon that came along with the sample to purchase this for sure!
Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream (Sample)
This is why I like to try out the samples, because if I had purchased this full sized, full price in store I would've been disappointed.
It didn't plump anything and although it was moisturizing, it wasn't any better than any other drug store brand.
I won't be purchasing this product.
Well that's all for today! I hope y'all enjoyed this little post :)
What products have you tried lately that you love or hate?
Have you tried any of these?
Until next time. . .
