Summer Empties

It has been a super busy summer and quite honestly I've been very low maintenance on the products I've been using. I went through way fewer products then I usually use in a season, but I also have quite a few products that are almost done so they will definitely be appearing in my fall empties!

Not a Perfume sample- I was not a big fan of this perfume. It's honestly not quite an empty because I didn't actually finish the sample. It was just not something that I enjoyed wearing, in fact it made me miserable. I refuse to finish a product just for the sake of finishing it if I hate it, so this one is getting tossed.

Cake Batter Chapstick- I finished a few of these chapsticks and I love them. They are my new favorite chapstick flavor and I am only able to find them at Target. I will need to take a trip up there to get another pack of them!

Hair and Body Gel- I used this hotel shower gel and it wasn't anything exciting. It didn't have any scent and was just a basic shower gel.

Bath and Body Works Papaya Sunrise Candle- I absolutely loved this amazing scent. I would 100% repurchase this candle in the future. The scent was incredible and just made me happy with its summer-y scent!

Crest Pro Health Mouthwash- This is still my favorite mouthwash. I really think it's a great one because the taste doesn't make you mouth hurt like so many others do but it seems very effective! I didn't have any cavities at my last checkup a couple of weeks ago if that makes it sound any more appealing =)

Rimmel Volume Accelerator Mascara- This was a nice mascara that I kept in my purse and used on the go. I don't tend to use the mascara in my purse all that often because I don't leave the house without mascara on, but I did enjoy this one. It wasn't clumpy and stayed on quite nicely!

Red Jacket Lotion-  This hotel lotion was from last summer and it smelled like baby powder almost. I really enjoyed this lotion and kept it at work until I finished it. If I knew where it came from I would definitely repurchase it.

Moroccan Oil Sample- My hairdresser gave this to me and I am so thankful because this hair oil is incredible! I need to find this and purchase it ASAP because it was amazing. My hair has never felt as smooth and amazing as it did when I used this!

Katherine Eyeliner in brown- I loved this eyeliner that came in one of my Birchboxes. I used every last bit of this eyeliner and would love to repurchase it in the future. It went on smoothly and stayed on all day.

Maybelline Eyeliner in black- This was another eyeliner that will remain as a staple in my makeup collection. I love how smooth this eyeliner goes on, and the black is an amazing color on my eyes. I was bummed when this one finished!

Sumita Eyeliner- This was another Birchbox eyeliner and I was so annoyed because it broke! I was enjoying it until it broke and I could no longer use it. So annoying!

Olay Shower Gel in Strawberry & Mint- I really liked this shower gel, but it was one that I would use again but would never pay to have. I liked the strawberry scent but I would only get it if I couponed for it or got another free sample.

EOS Mint Lip Balm- I did at one time love this lip balm but I've found that any mint flavored balm is too addicting for me. I will not be repurchasing this in the future and I am done with this kind of lip balm!

Herbal Essence Moroccan My Shine Shampoo and Conditioner- This was a great set and worked really well with my hair. I usually don't use any Herbal Essence other then my favorite blue one, but I would definitely use this set again in the future because I was very impressed by it.

Original Chapstick- I finished a few original chapsticks and while it's not my favorite flavor, I would definitely use this again in the future because it works.

Vaseline Lip Therapy- This is a great lip balm for super dry lips but it just got too old because I wasn't using it every day. Plus I'm not a huge fan of sticking my finger in the container and applying stuff to my lips. I would much rather have a stick to apply.

2 Dove Deodorants in Cucumber- I kept these mini deodorants in my purse in order to keep smelling good while out and about. This came in handy on super sweaty days and I will continue to keep little deodorants in my purse. I'm not a huge fan of using deodorants with aluminum in them but its hard to find minis of ones that don't!

BBW Dancing Waters Soap- I really liked this soap, it was light and fresh which is exactly what I want from a hand soap. I don't like when soaps are super scented or floral. I prefer a nice light scent!

Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner- This eyeliner kept breaking on me! I was not a fan, also I hated the light brown color. It just didn't look great on my eyes and it kept breaking so it was difficult to get on my eyes anyways.

Macademia Deep Repair Mask- I love love love this product. I think there has been one of these in every single empties post! I use this at least once a week and it keeps my hair super smooth and soft. I will continue to repurchase this product.

Organic Coconut Oil- This product is amazing! I use coconut oil before I wash my hair to protect it, to shave and to moisturize my skin. I have already repurchased a new one and I love how many ways you can use this product.

CVS Nail Polish Remover- Nothing amazing, it did the job and I will continue to repurchase it because it takes my polish off and is super cheap!

Febreeze Set and Refresh- I am not a huge fan of this scent thrower. I keep these around my room and the scent is great, but when I pick it up and get super close to it, the smell is terrible! I got it for free so I will finish up what I have and then I'm done with these!

Biotrue Contact Solution- Only contact solution I'm using lately. I have already repurchased it because I enjoy how gentle it is on my eyes.

BBW Champagne Love and Iced Plum Shower Gel-  This was a random purchase from Bath and Body Works and I actually really enjoyed it! The scent was nice and I love shower gels. I would buy this again in the future but there are definitely other scents I would prefer to this one from Bath and Body Works.

Olay Sensitive Shower Gel- This shower gel was unscented and not great. The shower gel itself worked fine but it didn't smell like anything which is a bummer because I like awesome scents when I shower. I got this as a free sample so I don't feel the need to repurchase.

Urban Decay Anti Aging Primer Sample- Received this in my last Sephora haul. I love the primer but I don't think the anti aging was anything special. I will stay with the original primer potion.

BBW Sweet Maui Mango Candle- I loved the scent of this candle. The throw was incredible and reminded me so much of summer. I would purchase this again next summer.

Supreme Icing on the Cake Shave Cream- I liked this shave cream when I started but I've found using coconut oil to shave works a million times better! I will continue to use shave cream instead of this and won't be repurchasing this shave cream.

Pantene Native Fusion Shampoo and Conditioner- I liked this set and it worked well with my hair. I would definitely repurchase this in the future- it is a great drugstore shampoo and conditioner!

Proterra Honey and Vanilla Shampoo- This is just a crappy hotel shampoo- never again! It was awful and made my hair feel so dry!

Earth Tempo Shampoo- Another awful hotel shampoo...

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo- What a great sample! I would use this again in the future, it worked great on my hair!

Aruba Aloe Foot Cream- I can't say enough good things about this foot cream- it is incredible. I used every little bit of this Birchbox sample. I would buy this in full size, its the best foot cream I've ever tried!

That's what I finished up this summer, what products did you use?
