February Empties

I know I'm a little bit late with my February empties, but better late than never, right!? Today I bring you all of the products that I've used up in the month of February! This month I'm also throwing away a few products that have expired.


OPI Manicure/Pedicure Cucumber Scrub* (reviewed here) - I really loved this scrub! This formula is great, and now I'm currently using the same scrub in the Tropical Citrus scent. 

Aussie Miraculously Smooth Conditioner - I picked this up because it was on sale, and I ended up liking it. This wasn't the most amazing conditioner that I've ever used, but it was good. I would have liked it to be a bit thicker in consistency. 

Lush Fun - Pink* (reviewed here) - I loved this product! My boyfriend also really liked this product, even though it was bright pink! I used this as a soap, and I found that it lathered really well, and the scent was great. 

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in Fair - This is an incredible concealer for under eye circles. I'm already using my backup of this product, and I think I'll be repurchasing for a while :)

Sephora Collection Hydrating and Smoothing Foundation - This isn't used up, but I've had it for a few years and now it's most likely expired. The colour wasn't a perfect match for me, and I wasn't a big fan of the coverage. 

Vichy Purete Thermale Eye Make-Up Remover Sensitive Eyes - This eye make up remover was alright, but I found that it didn't remove all of my mascara and eye liner. I'm still searching for the perfect eye make up remover!

Bath & Body Works Wild Citrus Sunflower Shower Gel - This scent was good, but I didn't find that the scent filled up my entire shower. I like my shower gels to be quite strongly scented. 


Laura Mercier Perfecting Water Rich - I wasn't quite sure as to what this product was meant for, so I ended up using it as a toner. I received this in a beauty box a long time ago, and finally got around to trying it out. I found that this made my skin feel soft and refreshed, but I don't think I'll be buying the full size version.

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer - This was a deluxe sized sample from Sephora, and I absolutely love this product! I have a second sample that I'm using now, and I think I'll need to buy the full size. 

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Sugar* (reviewed here) - I loved this shade, and Buxom's formula is amazing. I'm definitely wanting to buy the full size in this shade, but I'm trying to use up a few other glosses first. 

Origins Checks & Balances - I loved this foaming cleanser, and I would consider purchasing the full size in the future. Right now I'm happy with my Lush Ultra Bland cleanser, but I really enjoyed this one from Origins when I was using it. 

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter (reviewed here) - The formula of these lip butters is so creamy and hydrating. This one has kept my lips soft all winter long, and I will definitely be repurchasing. 

Manual Override Lip-Tastic - This is more than 5 years old, and just needs to be tossed. 

GlamGlow - This was a sample from Sephora and I really liked this mask! I'm not sure that it's worth the insane price tag though...

Murad Acne Spot Treatment - Another Sephora sample, and I might be buying the full size bottle of this one! 


Bath & Body Works California Poppy Gentle Foaming Hand Soap - The scent of this was great, and I'll always repurchase BBW's hand soaps!

La Senza Winter Romance Super-Rich Body Butter - This was another product that I've had for years, and just needs to be tossed. I wasn't a huge fan of the scent, and found it a bit overwhelming. 

Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee (reviewed here) - I really liked this shade from the famous Lip Butter line. However, I think I prefer L'Oreals Color Riche Balms, and Maybelline's Color Whispers, so I'll be purchasing those instead. 

Vichy NeoVadiol Contours Lips and Eyes - This eye cream was alright, but I do prefer something heavier. I'm using an eye cream from Olay right now that I love, so I won't be repurchasing this one from Vichy. 

Smith Farms Lip Tint* - I actually haven't used this that many times, but I find the scent so strong and offensive that I'm just going to toss this balm. 

Avon Sun SPF 40 - This sunscreen is expired, so it's also being tossed. 

Lip Fusion Micro-Injected Collagen Lip Plump - This lip plumper was really good, but I found that it actually hurt my lips in the process. The effect is so strong, so if you don't have sensitive lips then you might love this product. 

Cargo High Definition Lip Gloss - I received this gloss in a beauty box a long time ago, and it has since expired. I didn't like the colour on my skin tone, so I never really reached for this gloss. This formula also had a strange scent to it. 

Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion - I adored this scent! BBW always brings this scent out around the holidays, so I'm sad that my bottle is gone. I will definitely repurchase next Christmas. 

So those are all of the products that I used up in February! So far in March I haven't used up a single product, so I don't think my next empties post is going to be quite so long. Please leave me a comment below letting me know what products you have used up recently! :)


  1. The Murad acne treatment looks good. I really want it! I love the revlon lip butter. I think I'll need to try Maybelline and L'oreals lip colours now! :)

    1. I really liked the sample that I had!
      Definitely try Maybelline and L'oreal, I find they are a bit more hydrating :)

  2. Hi dear fellow polish lover :)
    For make up removing I advice you to try Avene thermal water, it works great for me :)
