May 2013 Empties!

Today I bring you my May empties, or all of the beauty products that I've used up this past month. As always, I've seemed to empty up quite a few items (I always surprise myself by how many bottles I can empty in just one month!).


Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturizer with White Tea (reviewed here) - I really loved this moisturizer, and I would repurchase this in the future!

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner - I love these conditioners from Herbal Essences, and this one smelled amazing! I would definitely repurchase.

Lush Ice Blue Shampoo* (reviewed here) - This was a really uplifting, invigorating shampoo from the Retro line at Lush.

Benefit They're Real! (reviewed here) - I used up my sample of this famed mascara from Benefit. I did really like this formula, but I'm not going to rush out and buy the full size tube. Honestly, I don't think that this mascara was that much better than my favourite drug store mascara (Cover Girl Lash Blast).

Lush Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb* & Lush The Brightside Bubble Bar* - I took both of these on my trip to NYC this month, and I absolutely loved both! After a long day of walking around the big city, a hot bath at the end of the day was just what I needed! These were both from Lush's Easter 2013 Collection.

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Foundation* (reviewed here) - I absolutely love this foundation! This bottle seemed to last forever, but it finally gave out this month. I'm already missing this foundation in my life, so I definitely will be picking up another bottle soon.

Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Anti-Bac - I love these and will continue to repurchase!

Revlon Lip Butter - Peach Parfait (reviewed here) - I was loving this Lip Butter lately, and I used it all up. This shade is really natural on my lips, it's like a "my lips but better" shade for me!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash* (reviewed here) - I really, really liked this face wash! It's very invigorating, and helps to keep sebum and acne at bay.

The Body Shop Mango Lip Butter (reviewed here) - I love these lip butters from The Body Shop, they're so moisturizing. I'm currently using the Shea scent, and I'll continue to repurchase this formula!

John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Wash - I really enjoyed this scent, and the formula is great. I took this to New York, as it's the perfect travel size.

Bath & Body Works Garden Herbs Deep Cleansing Hand Soap* - I love these hand soaps from BBW and will always repurchase!


Dove Refresh + Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo - I absolutely love this dry shampoo! I've already repurchased another bottle of this stuff, it's that good :)

OPI Manicure/Pedicure Tropical Citrus Scrub* (reviewed here) - I've been using this as a foot scrub for the past couple of months. This smells like pina coladas, which I think is amazing!

OPI Manicure/Pedicure Chamomile Mint Massage* - This is a really nice, light lotion that you can use on your feet or hands. I tended to use this on my feet, and I really like that it sinks in quickly. 

Lush Ocean Salt (reviewed here) - I loved this scrub, and it's definitely deserving of all of the hype it's received! I would repurchase, as it's perfect for pre-tanning, and it can also be used on the face or body. 

Bath & Body Works Fresh Picked Apples Body Wash* (reviewed here) - Oh my gosh, I loved this scent! Go to your local BBW and give this a sniff. It's seriously amazing!

Elizabeth Grant Moisturizing Stick (reviewed here) - I really hated this lip balm, it's not moisturizing at all, and it only lasts on my lips for a few minutes before I need to apply another balm. Needless to say, I would not repurchase. 

Garnier Olia (reviewed here) - I really enjoyed this hair dye, it was really easy to use, and it didn't have that annoying hair dye smell. While I loved the application, my hair has been lightening up quite a bit. 

Bath & Body Works Tiki Beach (reviewed here), Jungle Kiss, and Strawberry* (reviewed here) Candles - I loved all three of these candles, especially the Strawberry scent. BBW makes amazing candles, and I will continue to purchase them. 


And then some samples! I'm also throwing out a Marcelle eye shadow quad, because it's many years old and I just never reach for it. It's just time to part with this one!

Another month down, another basket full of beauty products used up! Leave me a comment letting me know what you've used up recently, and if you've tried any of these products before :)

  2. ooh may have to try the body shop tea tree cleanser, I love tea tree and I've tried their tea tree body wash and LOVED it! Still desperate to try that makeup forever HD foundation, can't get it here in the UK :( (or not easily at least) great empties hun xx

    1. It's really great! If you liked the body wash, I think you'll love the facial cleanser :)
