Oh I can't believe it's already time for another empties post! I unfortunately didn't get through a ton of products this season but I did manage to make a little dent in my product overloaded world.
Chapstick- I finished quite a few of these guys! I finished a few cherry, a watermelon, an original, and even more cake batter. I am in love with cake batter chapstick and will be continuing to purchase it.
EOS Melon- I didn't finish this lip balm but I actually really enjoyed it until I found cake batter. I just prefer not to use the EOS because I don't know that it actually does anything for my lips.
BioRepublic Cucumber Breeze Face Mask- This was a sample in one of my Birchboxes and it was just okay. I didn't love that it was an actual mask, I much prefer something I smooth over my skin.
BBW Hawaiian Pink Hibiscus Lotion- I love this hand cream, I kept it in my purse and I used it almost every day. I would definitely purchase this again the future!
Jane Iredale HandDrink Hand Cream- I didn't really care for this hand lotion that came in my Birchbox. I wasn't a huge fan of how the consistency felt on my skin. I used it up but I definitely wouldn't purchase it in the future.
Desert Essence Coconut Lotion- I was so excited to try this Desert Essence lotion because I had heard great things about it on YouTube, but I found that it stained white clothing/bedding and I wasn't a huge fan of the scent either. I wouldn't repurchase this in the future, which I'm pretty disappointed about.
Neutrogena Makeup Wipes- I wasn't a huge fan of these face wipes but they were okay. I ended up using them to wipe off makeup on my hands when I swatched products. I believe I got them cheap with coupons but I definitely don't need them in the future.
Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Shower Gel- I used this infrequently when I stayed at my boyfriends house and I really did like it. I love the hello hydration line and I will definitely purchase it in the future.
Crest Whitening Toothpaste- I received this set to review. I really enjoyed them for awhile and felt that they did make my teeth whiter. I just got sick of using a two step process every time I brushed my teeth. I would definitely use a whitening product by crest in the future, but I felt that two steps was a little much!
Dial Hand Soap- This was a free soap from couponing and it was pretty boring. It did the job, but I enjoy the great smelling bath and body works soaps way more. I would get this again if it was free though because it foamed up quite nicely.
BBW Pink Chiffon Shower Gel- I love shower gel and this is one of my favorites. The scent is nice and girly and absolutely perfect for me. I will definitely get this again in the future once I make a dent in the amount of shower gel I have stashed away.
Act Mouthwash- This was a free sample and it was nice enough. I prefer Crest mouthwash to this, but because it was free I would definitely use it again if I did receive it again for free.
Lavanilla Vanilla Deodorant- I love this deodorant. It is natural and I feel good about using it, I don't feel like it will cause cancer or anything like I do with deodorant that has aluminum in it. I also really enjoy the scent, it is super light and I will continue purchasing Lavanilla deodorants.
Shakeology Chocolate- I have been drinking Shakeology almost every day and have found that it has made a huge difference in keeping me healthy. I have been through two bags already and am on my third. I will keep purchasing this each month because it's an awesome meal replacement!
Sensodyne Toothpaste- I am still using this toothpaste every single day. I still have quite a few small sized tubes like this one from when I got them all for seven cents a piece at Walmart. I still am finding that I don't get canker sores with this toothpaste and it's really helped me.
Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray- I received this in a Birchbox awhile back and have been using it before blow drying my hair. I thought the smell of it was really nice, but I'm not sure that the product did too much for my hair. I don't think it was the best blowout spray I've ever tried so I would be interested in trying other kinds because I've stuck with CHI for a long time and am in the market for a new kind!
Suave Moroccan Infusion Lotion- This is the worst lotion ever! It was in my purse for the longest time because I didn't want to use it and just avoided it. I found that it was super sticky and didn't moisturize my hands at all. I received this for free, but I would never, never purchase this!
Maybelline Infallible Eyeliner- I love this eyeliner, it is my favorite and I need to repurchase it! I just love how easily it goes on. I always purchase it in black and it works great on my waterline.
Maybelline The Colossal Mascara- This mascara was okay, I found that it became clumpy pretty quickly and it was also pretty wet which isn't my favorite type of mascara. I would rather purchase a different kind over this in the future but it was alright.
Satin Care Dry Skin Shave Cream- I'm not super picky with shave cream but this isn't one I would purchase in the future. I didn't think it was great at all and didn't help my skin before shaving. I thought that one marketed to dry skin would be a little bit nicer, but it actually didn't which was a total bummer.
BBW Red Guava Lava Candle- I loved this Bath and Body Works candle. The scent was so summery I really enjoyed it. I don't burn a ton of candles in the summer because it's so hot and I never think to, but I enjoyed this in the fall even though it's clearly a summer scent!
Pacifica Sea Foam Face Wash- I loved this face wash, it was very light and kept my sensitive skin calm. I loved the scent as well and would definitely purchase this again in the future. I really like the Pacifica brand, and definitely want to try more products by them.
Laura Mercier Eye Gel Cream- I purchased this expensive eye gel and thought it would be amazing and I found that it totally wasn't worth the money. It was okay, but I didn't feel that it would be worth repurchasing in the future.
Tocca Scrub- Another Birchbox sample! I loved this scrub, I used it in the shower on my feet and found that it felt really good and I enjoyed it a lot. I have mixed feelings about Tocca products, some I have liked and some I really haven't but I would definitely purchase a scrub from them in the future.
Philosophy Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel- These two were from a set I received a couple of Christmases ago. I didn't love the pink grapefruit scent, but I do like the Philosophy shower gels. I am almost done with this little set- about time!
Finesse Hairspray- I hated the smell of this hairspray and because I don't use hairspray often it was taking forever to go through it. It lucky stopped up a couple of weeks ago and could no longer be used and I didn't bother to unclog it. Goodbye!
Suave Shampoo and Conditioner- This was a great, cheap shampoo and conditioner! I definitely will purchase this again because it got the job done and wasn't super expensive. My boyfriend actually was using the same ones at one point which I thought was cute.
Sephora Mascara- I received this mascara for free during a sephora order but I will never purchase in the future. It was just a bad mascara all around so I will definitely be trying other ones instead of this one!
BBW Sea Island Cotton Shower Gel- Another awesome shower gel. I was surprised with how much I loved this scent. I would definitely use this again!
