August Empties

Another month, another Empties post! I love writing these posts because it makes me see how many products I've used in the past month, and which ones I've loved and would repurchase.

Products I would repurchase: 

Bliss That’s Incredi-“peel” - I like these little pads, but I do wish that they were a bit more affordable. I haven't seen a huge improvement in my skin, but I might have to use them for a bit longer to see real results!

Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream - I adored this cream! I had a small sample from Sephora, but I do think I will repurchase this in the future. The formula is so creamy and moisturizing, it would be great to use in the colder winter months. 

Nivea Essential Lip Balm - This is one of my favourite lip balms of all time, I will definitely be repurchasing!

Bath & Body Works Paris Amour Shower Gel & Body Lotion - I love the Bath & Body Works formulas and scents, I will always repurchase, but I do want to try out all of their different scents. 

Clinique Eye Defining Liquid Liner in Black - This has finally dried up! I've been using this eye liner for so long, I was really upset to see it run out. I've since moved on to a 24/7 Liquid Liner from Urban Decay, which I also love, but I will go back to Clinique in the future :)

Ahava Advanced Mud Masque for normal to dry skin - This is a definite repurchase for me! I highly, highly recommend giving this product a try if you love mud masks. I can't wait to explore more of Ahava's products :)

OPI Manicure/Pedicure Chomomile Mint Scrub - I adored this scrub, I love OPI's formula, and I will definitely be buying more scents in this scrub!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment - This was my mini product from Sephora's Beauty Insider Birthday gift! I really enjoyed using this lip balm, but I'm still undecided as to whether or not it's worth the insanely high price tag! It might be a repurchase, but I haven't decided yet. 

Bumble & Bumble Bb Straight Blow Dry - I just had a sample of this, but I really did like it! It tamed my frizz and calmed my curls :)

Products I Might Repurchase: Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel, Pantene Medium –Thick Shampoo & Conditioner, Yankee Candle Vanilla Lime Tart, Crest 3D White Toothpaste, Fruits & Passion Strawberry Body Lotion, Bath & Body Works Oceanside 3 Wick Candle, bareMinerals Hydrating Mineral Veil, YSL Faux Cils, , L’Oreal Vive Pro Nutri-Gloss Shampoo, Bath & Body Works Orange Sapphire Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Soap,

Products I wouldn't Repurchase: L’Oreal Total Repair Replenishing Mask, Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Shampoo, Chi Silk Infusion, Life Brand Daily Glow Moisturizing Lotion for Fair Skin Tones, Truly Organic Cosmetic Pads,  L’Oreal Mythic Oil

I'm always amazed by how many products I use up every month! I did move this month, so I'm glad that I could get rid of a few empties to ease my packing! Let me know what you used up lately :)


  1. I love L’Oreal Vive Pro Nutri-Gloss Shampoo! It's one of my all time favorite hair care lines.

    1. I did like it, but it didn't do anything amazing for my hair!

  2. I have tried a # of those peel pads and don't see anything from any of them but for the Dr. Denese ones. I paid a lot also for the Bliss ones & Philosophy ones. Oh, there was another brand I used that I did like...Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle Pads - they did help. Right now I could use an MD peel my skin is so rough - nothing seems to be getting at it. I tossed some products this month, not empties but purging. I need to major purge the entire house.

    1. I agree, the pads are fun but I don't think I saw any real improvements! I guess nothing will be as good as the real thing!

  3. Anything from Bath & Body Works is a winner for me :) xx

  4. I have tried this total repair hair mask as well, and I absolutely hated it - it made my hair so flat and lifeless. The Nivea lip balm is on my daily must have list, most recently I picked up the strawberry one (has a little bit of a tint to it)


    1. The L'Oreal mask is so light and runny, it didn't nourish my hair at all!
      I really need to try some of the other formulas of the Nivea lip balm! :) Thanks for the recommendation!

  5. OMG you have so many! hahaha I've seen a lot of this posts and I wanna do one of my own but I don't have that many products to show... yet hahaha guess it'll have to wait.

    Bath and Body Works is the best.




    1. I used to think I didn't use up a lot, but once you start saving the packaging you realize how much you actually use! You should try it for a month :)
