Well friends we are officially in our new apartment! #apartmentliving
There are still quite a few things left to do. Things to put away, pictures to hang, items to buy... all that fun stuff that goes along with moving. I can't wait to share everything with you! I have so many fun new items I purchased to share and I can't wait to do an official tour of each space. However, all in good time! While I'm finishing up that fun over here let me share with you all the empty products I tossed before I moved out of the old house.
Usually I do my spring empties March, April and May however I did cut it a little short and the rest of May will be included with my summer empties. It's also possible I may do these posts a little more frequently so I don't have the HUGE bag of trash hanging out in my apartment all the time!
Anyways, here's what I finished!
Yankee Candle Sugared Vanilla Candle- I bought this candle mostly for Tim because he loves vanilla scents and it was on sale at Kohls. I am not a huge fan of Yankee Candle scents because they smell great in the jar but don't have much of a scent throw. I found this one to be pretty much the same. I never ever buy Yankee Candles at full price anymore because of that!
Yankee Candle Bermuda Beach Candle- If I had to pick a favorite Yankee Candle scent this would be top dog by far. I honestly wish the scent throw was better because this candle is magnificent in the jar. It's a beachy scent but has a little bit of fruitiness in it as well. A perfect mix of salty, sweet and beachy!
Airborne- Unfortunately in March I was feeling pretty sick so I started taking some Airborne to get myself healthy once more. Tim also took a ton of these to ward off the cold I had. I hate Airborne when you have to drink it but these gummies were tolerable.
Brogue Deep Conditioning Mask- I love a good hair mask and this one worked well on my hair. It's been super dry lately since I highlighted it and I need all the help I can get. I didn't feel it did anything amazing for my hair, but it certainly didn't hurt it. I always feel a slight change after using a hair mask- not enough to go out of my way to purchase one, but enough to use it when it's available in the future.
Vitafusion Women's Gummy Vitamins- I'm not a huge vitamin person but every once in awhile I'll pick some up at the store and they are always gummies! I liked these and would definitely buy them again in the future but I did switch it up this time and have vitamins that aren't specifically for women so Tim can take them too.
Not Your Mother's Way To Grow Shampoo- I've been trying to grow my hair out and this shampoo has worked great for me in that aspect. I am finding that my hair is more dried out then it was before but that tends to happen when I use the same product for too long. I will definitely be trying something new next but will repurchase this in the future.
Reach Floss- Keep those teeth clean friends! I have been doing my best to floss on a regular basis and really like the Reach floss. It works well and has a great taste which is good in my book for the not-so-fun job that this product is meant to do.
Opti-Free Contact Solution- I used many bottles of this contact solution for quite some time and recently switched because it was just not cleaning my contacts as well as I needed it to. I don't think I will ever go back to this solution because I like the product I'm using now much better.
Pantene Classic Clean Conditioner- This is a Tim empty and he loved it so much that he repurchased it last time we were in Walmart. When he asked me to pick up shampoo and conditioner for him I was at a total loss and picked up a set that seemed the least girly. He must've liked it!
Cake Batter Chapstick- Eight cake batter chapsticks completed! They are currently my favorite chapstick and I will keep repurchasing them.
Febreeze Set and Refresh- This works great at a distance but I hate when I pick it up and am close to the smell. I would only get these if they were free again, not something I would actually spend money on!
Dove Shampoo and Conditioner- I used these during my trip to Florida and I did like them but there are definitely shampoo and conditioners that I like much better and would repurchase first.
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara- This mascara was way too wet! I prefer my mascara to be dry and go on nicely. I don't like when my mascara comes off my lashes and doesn't dry right away. I wouldn't ever purchase this in the future.
Bath and Body Works Crisp Morning Air Lotion- This lotion was one of my favorites of all time! I had never tried this lotion before but I love Bath and Body Works fall scents so I was sold on this particular scent from the moment I sniffed it in store. I will definitely re-purchase this one.
Bath and Body Works Fresh Sparkling Snow Lotion- I purchased this lotion primarily for the packaging because it was so gorgeous but I absolutely loved this lotion. It smelled amazing and I will purchase this next winter when it comes back out.
Dior Maximizer Mascara Primer- Such an expensive product but very worth it! My lashes never looked better then when I applied this before my mascara. I will be saving up to purchase this again but it is definitely a splurge.
Maybelline Brown Tones Eyeshadow- I have had this eyeshadow duo forever and I was so glad to hit pan. I do like the Maybelline eyeshadows, they aren't as great as other eyeshadows but for drug store shadows they do the job.
Yankee Candle Amber Sunset Tealights- I finished a few tealights and they definitely aren't my favorite but I'm almost done with my stash. I prefer bigger candles to smaller ones due to the scent throw.
Patchology Face Mask- I liked this mask but I find them kind of creepy. I like when you a product gets spread onto the skin instead of placing a mask onto the skin but I will finish using up the ones I have until they are gone. I don't think however that I will purchase them in the future.
Philosophy Shower Gel Samples in Raspberry Glazed, Homemade Honey Buns, Sweet Fluffy Cupcake, and Pink Almond Candy- I am not a huge fan of Philosophy shower gels, particularly these scents. I always seem to end up with shower gel scents from Philosophy that smell like food and that's not the scent I would chose normally. I will stick with other scents!
Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume Sample- I want the full size SOOO badly! This is the perfume I'm currently coveting despite the fact that I own a ton of full size perfumes and certainly don't need a new one. Amazing scent and someday I will actually purchase it!
Not Soap Radio Lemon Shower Gel- The lemon scent is definitely not my favorite but the shower gel itself is nice. I have a few of these left so I will keep using them up!
Olay Facial Moisturizer- I did like this at first but it started to bother my skin quite a bit. I didn't actually finish this product up but ended up tossing it. I am trying different lotions for my face now and will keep you updated on the new ones I try and if they work better then this Olay one!
Sephora Makeup Remover- This product is one I picked up because of ease while shopping in Sephora. I'm not picky about my makeup remover and this one was fine for my eye makeup. There wasn't much left in the container and I figured it was time to let this go since it had been quite awhile!
Dove Cucumber Deodorant- I don't love the idea of using a non-natural deodorant but this Dove one is nice and convenient to keep in my purse. I find that sometimes the non-natural ones tend to work better on super stressful or hot days. I keep trying to only use natural deodorants but will settle for only using this one occasionally.
Benefit Roller Ball Mascara- I LOVED this mascara! As you've probably already realized from this post I love drier mascaras and this one was a great dry one! I will definitely be repurchasing this one again.
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara- Unfortunately this mascara is rather wet and not one of my favorites. I won't be buying this one again!
Anastasia Brow Gel- I have found I'm not really a brow girl. I don't need to fix my brows every day they aren't too unruly, so this is not a necessary product and I will not be buying brow products in the future.
Lavanilla Vanilla Coconut Deodorant- I love this version of the Lavanilla deodorants. The coconut is a nice addition to the regular vanilla scent I buy. It really smells great and works well except as I mentioned above that I need to reapply or use a different deodorant on hotter days.
Cadbury Mini Eggs- I became obsessed with these during Easter this year! I ate quite a few packages of them this year! #obsessed
Philosophy Animal Cracker Shower Gel- At first I liked this scent but I am getting sick of all food scents Philosophy has! I am staying away from Philosophy shower gels for awhile!
Air Repair Moisturizer- I received this in a Birchbox and liked it but it certainly wasn't my favorite moisturizer. I was happy to finish it up.
Coola Sunscreen- I love love love when I receive Coola products in my Birchbox because they are so expensive! I used this while we were in Florida on my face and it worked wonderfully at keeping me from getting burnt!
Oscar Blandi Heat Protectant Spray- This is has been my favorite heat protectant for some time and sadly this was my last container. I desperately need to find some more!
Neutrogena Night Time Moisturizer- I used this at night before bed and it was great at keeping my skin moisturized while I slept. I would definitely use this again in the future.
Skintimate Tropical Splash Shave Gel- I am not picky with my shave gels but I love the scent of this skintimate one. I would definitely chose this scent over others in the future.
