Empties May 2015


 Confession: I've been a little lazy on my skin care and beauty regime, y'all. In an effort to get better, I'm going to start posting more product reviews to share with y'all. Here are some products that I finished up last month. Some I loved, some I hated, and one is seriously life changing. Read on to discover! :)

Ulta Sparkle and Shine Show Gel in Peaches and Cream
To me, all shower gels are pretty much the same. So when I try out a new shower gel, I'm basically going off of the scent. This scent was TOO "perfumy". I like nice fresh, clean scents that are light and this one was just too heavy!
Repurchase?: Nope!


Bath and Body Work's True Blue Spa Line
60 Second Manicure Hand Scrub
I LOVE this product! It makes your hands feel so soft after using it! Although I do love this product, the hand scrub from Sally's is just as good and cheaper.

Repurchase? Yes, but only on sale or with a coupon. Otherwise, I'm heading to Sally's!

The Body Shop's Body Butter in the scent peach
I LOVED this product! I used it up in record time! Their body butters are amazing! I usually only put them on at night time because they're heavier than a regular lotion. The thing I love about the ones from The Body Shop is that I can still feel them on my skin when I wake up in the morning. I feel like it's really moisturizing and helping my skin. 

Repurchase?: Absolutely!

Lush's Ocean Salt Scrub
I just realized this was a face scrub as well as a body scrub. There is NO WAY I could use this on my face! This scrub is harsh and my face is way too sensitive. I do love it, but there are some cons.
It's expensive for the amount you get and it doesn't last very long. I use it sparingly and even then I feel like it's used up in the blink of an eye. Another downside is the inconvenience. The closest store to me is over 2 hours away. It's a good product, but not a must have. 
Repurchase?: When I'm in a splurge mood! :)

Batiste Dry Shampoo
One of my favorite dry shampoos. You can't go wrong with this product! I always pick up a can when I go to TJ MAXX.
Repurchase?: Of course!

Aveeno Makeup Removing Wipes
Hands down my favorite makeup removing wipes. I have to be careful with wipes, because they tend to break me out, but these are wonderful for my skin. I always use these to remove makeup before cleaning my face at night. 
Repurchase?: Yes, Yes, Yes!

Tresemme's Dry Shampoo
I didn't dislike this dry shampoo, but I didn't love it either. It was just okay. It got the job done, but didn't wow me. 
Repurchase?: Yes, just because it's so readily available

La Mer moisturizing Creme 
Two words: LIFE CHANGING
I have wanted to try this product for about 3 years now, but let me warn you: it is EXPENSIVE. This little bitty jar is around $180. I splurged on this product back in November and fell in love. It comes with a little spatula for you to scoop out the creme and that makes it last a little while longer. I'm on my second container and when I use it consistently, I can tell a major difference in my skin. 

Repurchase?: Yes! Even with that crazy expensive price tag this product is worth it!

OPI Drip Dry
I LOVE this product! Simply drop it onto each nail after applying your favorite top coat. It dries your nails super fast! 
Repurchase?: YES!

Jergen's lotion in Cherry Almond. 
This is one of my favorite scents. My grandmother always had this in her bathroom and I always had to put some on when I was little. It now reminds me of my childhood and I love it :)
Repurchase?: Absolutely! One of my favs! 

Banana Boat Summer Color
I've tried MANY self tanners. This one is my favorite, but that doesn't mean I like it. I have yet to find a self tanner that works and looks good. I've tried St. Tropez, Jergens, the tanning towels, etc. I can't find anything that both has a pretty color and doesn't streak. This one has the best color, but streaks really bad and has a terrible smell. Seriously, after I put it on post shower I feel like I've just slathered mud all over my body and it just feels gross. 
Repurchase?: When I'm in desperate need of some color, yes

Bath and Body Works Hand Soap in Winter Cranberry
Yes, I realize it's no longer winter, but this soap managed to get pushed back in my cabinet and I didn't find it until recently. There's not much to say about a hand soap. Like shower gels, I pretty much just go off of scent and this one was fabulous!
Repurchase?: Yes!

Biolage Shampoo and Conditioner
I knew when I purchased this that this product never does well on my hair. But it has to be the best smelling shampoo in the world! I LOVE the smell of these two products, but sadly my hair just isn't a fan. 
Repurchase?: No

Soap and Glory's The Scrub of Your Life
I LOVE all Soap and Glory products and this one is no exception. The smell is amazing. It's also just a really good body scrub. 
Repurchase?: Yep!

Clinique's Sparkle Skin body exfoliating cream. 
This might sound like the same thing as a body scrub, but it is so much more than that. This is like a  creamy in shower lotion that also exfoliates. The smell is minty so it's really refreshing too. I LOVE this product!
Repurchase?: Yes! One of my favorites!

Yep, I realize that everything I've talked about so far falls under beauty and this is a laundry product, but I did finish using it in May and I wanted to share it with y'all. This is the Bounce In Wash Scent Booster. I've tried a lot of scent boosters, but I keep coming back to this one. I LOVE the smell and the fact that you can smell it days later. 

Repurchase?: YES!

What products are you loving? I'd love to know!
