June 2013 Empties

It's empties time again! That time of the month when I show you my trash... I have quite a few empties this month (as I normally do), so let's get started!

Bath & Body Works Beach Flower Gentle Foaming Hand Soap - I love BBW's hand soaps, and will always repurchase!

Bath & Body Works Beautiful Day Shower Gel* (reviewed here) - This was a great Spring/Summer scent, and I love BBW's shower gel formula. I'm currently finishing up the matching body lotion, so you'll see that one in my July Empties!

Revlon ColorSilk Shade 30 Dark Brown* (reviewed here) - I love the dark brown shade of this hair dye, it turned out perfectly and was easy to use!

Sunsilk Straighten-Up 24/7 Creme - I did like this product, but I have found other hair cremes that I like more. Right now I'm using one from Garnier Fructis that I will review soon!

Bath & Body Workks Rome Honeysuckle Amore* (reviewed here) - This was another great Spring/Summer scent, and I love the light formula from BBW. The mini sizes are great for travelling or keeping in your purse!

Lush Mask of Magnaminty (reviewed here) - I absolutely love this face mask! I've been using this mask a ton over the past month or two, and it took quite a while to use up this pot. This mask is very minty, and I loved using it in the morning to help wake me up.

Olay Professional Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex (reviewed here) - This is one of my all time favourite eye creams, it's so creamy and hydrating but sinks in quickly!

eos Everyday Hand Lotion in Berry Blossom* (reviewed here) - I loved this hand cream, it was very light and perfect to keep in my purse. The formula sinks in quickly and leaves your hands feeling velvety smooth!


L'Occitane Verbena 20% Shea Butter Soap - This smells nice, but it wasn't anything special. I probably wouldn't repurchase. 

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so Fresh EDT (reviewed here) - I love this perfume! I really want to go out and buy another bottle, but I'm trying to use up some of my other perfumes first. Right now I'm loving Benefit's Ring My Bella perfume. 

Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Shampoo & Conditioner - I really liked both of these products. The conditioner felt like more of a deep repair mask, so it was hard to get out of the bottle at times. I would purchase both of these in the full size bottles. 

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Conditioner - I liked this conditioner, but I don't think I'll be buying the full size. I already have quite thick hair, so this isn't quite suited for my needs!

Clairol Colorseal Conditioning Gloss - I found this packet in my stash, and decided to just use it up! It was okay, nothing too special. 

Alberto V05 Smoothing Hot Oil - I've gone through a ton of these boxes over the years. I always pick them up when they go on sale at Shopper's. This hot oil leaves my hair feeling smooth, and reduces frizz. 

Revlon Colorsilk After-Color Conditioner* - This came with the box of hair dye, and I loved this conditioner! It smelt exactly like banana cream pie, and I love anything banana scented! My only complaint is that this little packet didn't contain very much product, so I did have to add a bit of my regular conditioner to my hair.

Ahava Deadsea Mud Dermud Nourishing Body Cream - I haven't come across an Ahava product that I didn't like! This body cream was really thick and hydrating, I loved it!

Lush The Kiss* - This was released for Valentine's Day, and I've really been enjoying it ever since. My only complaint was that the scent of this lip balm was really strong and sweet. Otherwise, I loved the shimmer and slight colour that this balm gave my lips. 

The Body Shop Shea Lip Butter - I love TBS' Lip Butters, they're very creamy and hydrating. The Shea scent is nice and light, and I will definitely be repurchasing. 

Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel - I liked this sample, but I didn't find it to be anything special. 

Lush The Brightside Bubble Bar* - This was released in the Easter 2013 Collection, and I really loved it! This bubble bar turned my bath water a beautiful orange shade, and the scent was very light and energizing. 


Herbal Essences Bye-Bye Breakage Conditioner - I love Herbal Essences' conditioners, I find they really do help to nourish my hair. And you can't beat the price!

Boscia Soothing Cleansing Cream (reviewed here) - I didn't really like this facial cleanser, I found it had an odd scent and it wasn't great at removing makeup. I wouldn't repurchase. 

Soft & Dri Aluminum Free Deoderant - I've been using aluminum free deoderants for almost a year now, and this is one of my favourite options. 

Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvenating Face Serum* (reviewed here) - This bottle lasted me ages, about 7 or 8 months! I really liked this serum, and it left my face with a beautiful glow. 

Vichy Auto Bronzant (reviewed here) - This is the old packaging, but I don't think the product has changed. This self-tanner leaves my skin a few shades darker, and is fairly easy to apply. This formula did have quite a strong scent though. 

Soap & Glory Hand Food (reviewed here) - This hand cream smells amazing, and it is very hydrating! Definitely believe the hype surrounding this product, because it really is that good!

Vichy Ultra Protection Sunblock Stick - I've had this for a while, and it expired before I used it all up. I think I prefer spray or cream sunscreens. 

eos Lip Sphere - I like these little spheres, but I do have to say that I wish they were a bit more hydrating. These are perfect to keep in your purse and for on the go use though. 

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream - I loved this moisturizer, it was nice and light making it great for Summer!

Nude Miracle Mask sample - This was a very nice mask, but I don't know that I'll purchase it just because of the steep price. 

Whew! So those are all of the products I've used up this past month! I don't know how I always have to many products each month, but they're mostly skin care and body products. I need to start using up more makeup items! I would love it if you left me a comment letting me know what you've used up recently :)


  1. Wow that is a lot of empties! I've never finished a full perfume before in my life haha!

    1. Aha I know right! That was my first bottle of perfume that I've used up, and it was a 75ml bottle!
