March 2013 Empties

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'm bringing you my March empties, otherwise known as my trash. Isn't it a weird concept, showing other people your trash? I like empties posts because I get to review everything that I've completely used up, and really think about whether or not it was good enough to repurchase! I don't have too many empties this month, but I'll still show you what I've used up! :)


Redken Color Extend Shampoo & Conditioner samples - This formula was alright, but I'm not going to be purchasing the full sized bottles. I'm really enjoying my Lush solid shampoos at the moment, so I think I'll stick with those :)

Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent - This eye makeup remover was good, but it didn't get all of my mascara off. Right now I'm using Bioderma, and I'm really enjoying that. However, if I get this makeup remover again from Clinique in a gift with purchase, I would use it again. 

Soap & Glory Flake Away (reviewed here) - I ended up really liking this scrub! The formula is very moisturizing, while still being an excellent exfoliator. 


Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in April* (reviewed here)- I loved this shade, and Buxom's formula is incredible. This was one of my go-to glosses for February and March, and I definitely would purchase the full size tube. 

Cover Girl Concealer in Fair - I've had this for years, I don't even know if this product still exists! I recently rediscovered it in my stash, and I did quite like it. It covered dark circles well, and was fairly long lasting. 

OPI Nail Envy Maintenance* - I love OPI's original Nail Envy formula, and this one is also very good. If your nails are in good condition, but you just need a bit of help, this would be a great product for you. I already have another bottle of this!

Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub* (reviewed here) - I loved this lip scrub! It really help keep my lips in great condition all winter long. Right now I'm using Sweet Lips, which is the same great formula, but I like the scent of it better. 

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in R.S.V.P. - I'm not completely done with this cream shadow, but it has unfortunately dried out. I've had it for a few years, and I really love the colour and formula. I'm sad to see it go!

Benefit Refined Finish Facial Polish (reviewed here) - I kept this facial scrub in my shower, and I've been using it for almost a year now. This scrub is fairly gentle, while still exfoliating well. I liked the clean, spa-like scent, and the bottle is too cute! I do have other scrubs that I prefer though (Lush's Ocean Salt, and St. Ives' Apricot Scrub), so I probably won't repurchase this one from Benefit. 


Crest Complete Citrus Splash - I normally go for minty tooth pastes, but I decided to mix it up last month! I liked this flavour, and I did find that it helped whiten my teeth. 

Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Conditioner* (reviewed here) - This conditioner was really great, I loved the scent, and it left my hair feeling soft and manageable. I did go through the bottle quite quickly though, as I tend to do with all conditioners!

Bath & Body Works California Poppy Gentle Foaming Hand Soap - I love these hand soaps, and I will always continue to repurchase! :)

Benefit The Porefessional sample - This might just be my all time favourite primer! It feels amazing on my skin, and really does help my makeup last all day long. 

Paco Rabanne Lady Million perfume sample - I really liked this scent, and I think the full size bottle is really cute. 

Nina Ricci Nina L'Elixir - This scent was good, but I didn't absolutely love it, and won't be buying the full size bottle. 

Givenchy Dahlia Noir - I liked this scent, but again, I have other perfumes that I like more. I won't be purchasing the full size bottle of this one either. 

So there are all of my empties for March! I'm really trying to use up my perfume samples, so hopefully you'll see a bunch of those in my April empties. I just have so many of them, and it's a great way to discover new scents. Let me know what you've been using up lately in a comment below! :)


  1. Awesome empties!!! :D Is there any way you could possible apply the dry cream shadow with water so you can use the rest of it?
    And those Buxon glosses are amazing! :D

    1. Thanks!

      I'll definitely give it a try! But it is very dried out, I don't know if there's any way to save it! :(

  2. I am in love with the Soap and Glory flake away, just used it now! Lovely empties!
