July 2013 Empties

Another month has passed by, and I always feel like July goes by the quickest! I used up a ton of products this past month, so let's jump right into it :)



Clinique double ended gloss/lip stick - I love Clinique lip products, I think they're highly underrated! 

Bath & Body Works Frosted Cupcake 3 Wick Candle - I loved this sweet scent, but I found that the scent wasn't highly fragranced. I like candles that can fill up my entire room, and this one just didn't do that.

John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk (reviewed here) - I brought this travel sized bottle on my trip to Toronto earlier this month, and I loved it!

Bath & Body Works Venice Dolce Berry & Beautiful Day Body Lotion* - I loved both of these scents, and this light body lotion formula is perfect for Summer!

Redken Quick Dry 18 Hairspray - I really liked this formula! I found that it gave a medium hold but it still felt comfortable. 

Redken Color Extend Shampoo sample - I liked this, but I only got one use out of this sample, so there's not too much to say about it!


Lush Rub Rub Rub (Reviewed here) - I loved this exfoliator! It did a great job at both exfoliating and hydrating my skin. 

Lush Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask (reviewed here) - I love Lush's Fresh Face Masks, and it was my first time trying out this formula. I really liked it, and I will definitely repurchase. 

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Powder* (reviewed here) - I adore this powder, it really helps to absorbs oils and mattify my skin. I don't find that this leaves a white-cast in photos, as long as you don't apply too much. 

Revlon Lip Butter in Creamsicle (reviewed here) - I liked this shade at first, but then I found that it accentuated any dry bits on my lips, and the colour wasn't super flattering. I love other Lip Butter shades, but this one just wasn't for me. 

Dior Hydra Life BB Cream sample - This formula is very orange, so it didn't shade match me at all.

Lush Almond & Coconut Smoothie and Dreamwash samples - I loved both of these, and I would buy Almond & Coconut Smoothie in a full size. 

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream - I really liked this formula, it seemed to be a mix of a cream and a gel. The scent of Benefit's skin care line is beautiful too!


Garnier Olia After Color Conditioner (reviewed here) - I really liked this hair dye, and the conditioner was good as well. I would repurchase. 

Lush's Godiva Solid Shampoo (reviewed here) - I loved this formula, it was hydrating yet still cleansed my hair thoroughly. I really love Lush's solid shampoos, and I will repurchase. 

Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment* -  I loved this hydrating formula, and I think that it's better than the original Fresh Sugar Lip Balm. I still think that it's very pricey for a lip balm, so I'm not sure if I would purchase the full size. 

Fruits & Passion Orange Fragrance sample - I hated this scent, it was very strong and heavy. 

Lush Candy Floss Dusting Powder - I've had this for years and it's time to toss it. The scent is very sweet, and it had a slight shimmer in the formula. 

Origins Mega-Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum sample - I actually really enjoyed this product! It felt really nice on my skin, but I would need to use it for longer to see any results. 


Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake Shower Gel - I absolutely love this scent! It's sweet and smells exactly like cake batter!

Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Hair Dye in #4 Dark Brown - I used this a few day sago and I love the results! This formula left my hair feeling soft and looking shiny, and the colour came out perfectly :)

Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap in Warm Vanilla Sugar - I love these hand soaps & they're the only ones I buy!

Prada Candy Body Lotion - This scent is fairly powdery, so it wasn't my absolute favourite. However, the lotion was nice and light, yet hydrating.

Sally Hansen Maximum Strength Polish Remover - This is one of my favourite nail polish removers, and I will continue to repurchase!

Lilly Pilly Natural Kakadu Plum Hand & Body Creme sample x2 - I liked this formula, but not enough to go out and buy the full size. 

YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum Sample - This felt nice on my skin, but I'm not sure that it's worth the price tag.

YSLForever Youth Liberator Night Creme Sample - I really loved the feeling of this cream, and I would consider buying the full size in the future. 

Whew! So those have been all of the products I've used up in July! What products have you emptied recently? :)
