May Empties!

Another month has come and gone! Time for my monthly empties :)

Kate Somerville 360 Face Self Tanning Pads - I really like this! I'll review these soon :)

Bath & Body Works White Citrus Body Lotion - Reviewed here, I will definitely repurchase!

Aussie Catch the Wave Shampoo - I liked this, just a normal drugstore shampoo, nothing special

The Body Shop Buriti Baby Shampoo - This was very gentle, I probably wouldn't repurchase, but I still liked it.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes - Reviewed here, I really liked these, I would repurchase. 

John Masters Organic Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk and Body Wash - Reviewed here

OSIS + Session Fix Extreme Hold Hairspray - I don't use hairspray so it took me forever to go through this bottle! I liked this and would repurchase. 

Naturally Upper Canada Hand & Body Lotion in Cranberry Moro Orange - I liked this lotion, it is very moisturizing, but it did take a long time to rub in. 

OPI Manicure/Pedicure Tropical Citrus Scrub - Reviewed here - I'm so sad that this is empty! I loved this scrub and I will definitely repurchase.

OPI Expert Touch Lacquer Remover - I really liked this polish remover, it doesn't have a strong scent and it works great! But, it is expensive, so I'm not sure if I will repurchase. 

Nivea Regenerating Night Care - I've had this night cream for quite a while, I always forget to apply it when I'm tired at night! I wouldn't repurchase this, there are other night creams that I like more. 

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion - I love this moisturizer! I've used it before and I will use it again. I have so many moisturizers I need to use up before I can buy the full size of this one. 

Estee Lauder Take It Away Total Makeup Remover - I loved this! It's very creamy and actually does get the makeup off. 

Manual Override Silicone Primer - I liked this, but I don't think this line exists anymore. Now I'm using NARS's primer and I like it :)

Estee Lauder More than Mascara Moisture-Binding Formula - I hated this mascara! It is very wet and rubs off extremely easily. 

Olay ProX Eye Restoration Complex - I ended up really loving this eye cream, and I would purchase the full size!

Aquafresh Extreme Clean Toothpaste - I loved this toothpaste, I would purchase the full size. 

Merle Norman Luxiva Skin Refining Cleanser - I liked this exfoliator, but not as much as my St. Ives scrub!

DuWop All Eye Intensifier - This broke before I even got to use it, so that was really disappointing!

Softlips Sweet Moisturizing Lip Balm - I loved this balm, I would repurchase for sure. 

Vichy Aqualia Eyes - I hated this eye cream, I would not repurchase. 

Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner - This conditioner was a great deep treatment, I loved it!

Kate Somerville 360 Tanning Towelette - I loved this! I will review this soon :)

Yankee Candle Sun & Sand Tarte - I loved this scent! I will be repurchasing many of these :)

OPI Top Coat - I still have a bunch of this bottle left, but the formula has gone off, very stringy. 

OPI Mad as a Hatter & Absolutely Alice mini - I've been holding onto this for so long, I think it's time to part ways :(

L'Oreal Elixir Ultime - I wouldn't purchase the full size of this, I much prefer Moroccan Oil!

Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream - I LOVE this hand cream! I need the full size bottle in my life :)

YSL Opium Luscious Shower Gel - I wasn't a huge fan of this scent, I wouldn't repurchase. 

Yankee Candle Bahama Breeze Tarte - I love this scent, definitely will repurchase! 

SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF - I hate the scent of this, but I have the full sized bottle so I will use that up.

A lot more samples! If you want to know my thoughts on any of the products I skimmed over just ask in the comments :) What have you used up this month? I feel like as each month goes by my stash gets smaller and smaller!


  1. I love your empty posts! They make mine look pathetic! This month I'm going to try to use more samples. I have quite the sample stash these days!

    1. I can never believe how many empties I have at the end of each month! I also have a million samples, I'm trying to weed through my stash :)

  2. HOLY COW WOMAN! You went through sooo many empties this month- how do you do it? are these all yours, or do you also share with your sister/mom?

    1. Aha I know! They are all mine, I tend to just use one product at a time instead of using 10 different lotions at once, etc :) And a lot of things I went through this month were samples, travel sizes, or bottles that I just rediscovered so there wasn't much left in them! But still, it's a lot, I know lol

  3. Oh good job! That's a lot of stuff you managed to go through!

    1. Thanks! I know, I feel like I went through a ton this month!

  4. I love these posts, you've used loads this month x

    1. thanks :) I know, I can't believe how much I went through!

  5. I love using up samples because they can really start to add up and become clutter if they don't get used. I also use one product at a time until it is used up before moving on to the next item :)

    1. I like to use samples once I've used a full size product. This month I used up a full shampoo, so I decided to use some shampoo packets before moving on to the next bottle. Otherwise I would never get around to using those single use packets! :)

  6. Wow, you finished up so much! That is awesome!! We have another empties video posting soon!

    Jayme & Mendi @ Her Late Night Cravings

    1. Thanks! I can't wait to see what you've used up :)

  7. Oh my gosh you have used up loads! It must be so satisfying to use up products like that, it usually takes me ages lol x :-)

    1. I've gotten pretty good at narrowing in on a product and using only one product at a time! Otherwise I would never finish up anything!

  8. Oh my goodness!! This really puts my empties posts to shame! haha x


Thank you so much for your lovely comments, I love each and every one! I reply to all comments, but if you need a quicker response tweet me @BeyondBlush11 or email me (
