Hey everyone, welcome back for my 2018 February Empties post! I was debating whether or not to write my empties now or wait until the end of March, but in the end I wanted all these bottles gone from my cupboard. I’ve been thinking about moving to seasonal empties instead of monthly or bi-monthly like I did with my favourites posts. What do you guys think? Monthly or seasonal?
Hair & Body Empties
Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noël Shower Gel
I’ve been working on this bottle for two years. Vanilla Bean Noël isn’t one of my favourite scents from TBS. I much prefer Winter Candy Apple so I often reached for that scent first. I made myself finish this bottle and man am I happy to recycle it! Repurchase? No.
Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Super Softening Body Lotion
I featured this hand cream from Bath & Body Works in my Top 3 Hand Creams for Fall & Winter post last year! This hand cream is ultra moisturizing. I felt like this bottle lasted forever! Repurchase? No, I have so many other hand creams to finish right now. I did enjoy it though!
Batiste Dry Shampoo
I am a repeat purchaser of Batiste shampoo. I took the Batiste Mini to Peru and will be buying another to take to Panama in May. I will absolutely be repurchasing BUT I won’t be buying the Brunette version of the full size. It doesn’t match my current hair colour and the regular version works just fine.
GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment
I received this little sample in my September Topbox last year. It’s very tingly so I don’t know that I would recommend it on sensitive skin but it left my face super soft! Repurchase? If it went on sale I would. Otherwise, No. GlamGlow is expensive!
L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream
I received a pot of this anti-aging cream in the L’Occitane 2017 Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar. This cream hasgreat reviews and is supposed to be amazing for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines but the smell was just too much for me. I find it hard to use products that don’t smell nice! Repurchase? No.
I got to test this moisturizer as a Juror for the Elle Canada Grand Prix last year. I enjoyed it at the time, but I think I held onto the bottle for too long because I started getting strange acne that scarred immediately and was impossible to extract. I stopped getting new spots after I discontinued using this face cream. It’s ultra hydrating but it definitely has a shelf life. Repurchase? Maybe the Mini.
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser
This cleanser is one of the least expensive at sephora. This 2 oz travel size retails for $12 so I could actually justify the purchase. I hate to say it but I regret purchasing this cleanser. It smells soapy, left my skin feeling tight, and my dry patches returned while using this. Repurchase? No.
Makeup & Nailcare Empties
Ciaté London Bamboo Bronzer
I received this bronzer mini in my 2017 April Ipsy Glam Bag. It was also in my spring project pan, and it took me until now to use up. I enjoyed this bronzer but I’m currently exploring more affordable options from ColourPop and the drugstore so I won’t be repurchasing.
Ciaté London Geology Top Coat
What are the odds that I finish two Ciaté products in the same month!? I received this top coat from Ipsy at the end of 2016 I believe. It was great for the first few uses but it quickly became thick and hard to use. Repurchase? No.
Have you tried any of these products?
This concludes my February Empties! Please let me know if you guys would like to see me post empties on a monthly or seasonal basis. I’m learning towards seasonal but I’m open to suggestions 🙂
