March 2014 Empties

I'm back today with my recent empties! I always love collecting my empties throughout the month, and then sharing my trash with you! This month I have a decent amount of products to share with you, but nothing crazy. I also finished off a few items that were in my Project Pan, which I will be doing an updated post on shortly!

March 2014 Empties

Garnier Olia 3.0 - I really enjoy this formula, and I decided to go a bit darker this time around. I dyed my hair about 4 weeks ago now, and my colour is still looking great!

Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Damage & Colour Repair Deep Nourishing Treatment Mask - I found this on sale at Target a while ago, and decided to try it out. I actually really, really loved this mask! It was really thick, hydrating, and I do think that it prolonged the life of my colour.

Bioderma Sébium Foaming Gel* - I kept this cleanser in my shower, and I really enjoyed it. I think that it helped keep my skin balanced, and it reduced the number of breakouts that I had. Definitely a winner in my opinion!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask* - Another great product to help keep breakouts at bay! I'm already missing having this around, and I'll definitely have to pick up a back up soon. 

The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub* - Oh my gosh, this smelt SO GOOD! This formula is really creamy, hydrating, and slightly exfoliating. 

Lush Grass Shower Gel* - I wasn't a huge fan of this authentic grass scent, but the formula was very thick and hydrating. If you have dry skin, I think that you would love this formula!

Lush Veganese* - This was a nice light conditioner, but for my dry hair I do prefer a thicker conditioner. If you have thin or fine hair, then I think you'd really like this formula.

OPI Manicure/Pedicure Lemon Tonic Mask* - This lasted me forever! Whenever I wanted to really pamper myself I would reach for this foot and hand mask. The lemon tonic scent is amazing, and I have the matching lotion on the go right now.

March 2014 Empties

Incoco Nail Polish Appliqués in Daydreams & Morning Mist - These nail stickers were fun, but I have to say that I prefer using real nail polish instead! I can never get them to apply perfectly, and it's faster to just slap on two coats of polish.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - This bottle has finally come to an end! I absolutely love the finish and coverage that this foundation gives, it's unlike anything else. However, I started noticing that this did give me a bit of a white cast in flash photos, which is really annoying! I'm going to go through a few of my other foundations, and then see if I want to repurchase.

Lush Tender is the Night - I believe that this bar was from Valentine's Day 2013, but I'm not sure! Anyways, I really, really love this scent, and the formula is super hydrating. If you haven't tried out a massage bar from Lush before, I highly recommend that you do so ASAP!

Lush Dirty Springwash Shower Gel* - This was a nice minty, invigorating scent! This wasn't my favourite shower gel from Lush, but it wasn't bad either.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Finish* - This compact lasted me almost a full year! I absolutely loved using this as a finishing powder, as I don't think it gave me enough coverage as a stand alone foundation. I'm already missing this as a part of my daily makeup routine, and I definitely want to pick up another one. 

Cake Desserted Island Velveteen Hand Creme* - This hand cream smelt amazing! I really love Cake's formula - it's creamy, rich, and super hydrating. Highly recommend! 

St. Tropez Self Tanning Bronzing Mousse* - I really love all of St. Tropez' products that I've tried so far. This tanner kept me bronze throughout the Winter months, and I already have a backup! I am using the tanning gel at the moment, which I also love. 

Live Clean Moisturizing Hand Cream* - Oh man, this hand cream was amazing! I kind of flew through this tube, as I kept it on my nightstand and reapplied often. This has a nice fresh scent that reminds me of being by the ocean!

March 2014 Empties

Benefit Sun Beam - I loved adding a few drops of this into my foundation, especially when I have a tan! You can also use this on your cheekbones for a subtle glow. Love!

OPI I Juggle... Men - This was such a beautiful polish, but it has completely dried up. :(

Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment - I'm working through my collection of samples of these, and I think I have one more left! I really love this formula, but I'm not sure that I would splurge on the full size tube.

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm* - This formula is always raved about, but it just isn't one of my favourites. It isn't bad by any means, but I don't find it hydrating enough.

Boxx Cosmetics Bronzer in Kala - This was a really nice light, shimmery bronzer! I haven't tried too much from Boxx Cosmetics, but now I'm wanting to explore the brand!

Garnier Conditioner (from an old hair dye kit) - I love when brands give you tubes like this instead of single use packets!

Perfective Ceuticals Divine Brightening Mask* - This was a definite winner! I haven't heard of this brand before, but I definitely think that it's worth checking out.

Bourjois Volumizer Ultra Black Mascara - This was a good volumizing formula, but it did start to get a bit clumpy towards the end. I think there are better, cheaper mascaras on the market, but it was fun to test this one out!

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Radiant - This gloss was so pretty! I really love this formula from Smashbox, and I'm wanting to pick up a few more shades.

Vichy NutriExtra Extraordinary Oil* - This is a great multi-use oil - you can use it on your body, face, and hair! The scent was really nice and spa-like, and the formula was hydrating but not greasy. Definitely a winner!

Living Proof Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream - This was just a travel size sample, but it lasted me quite a while. I really liked this formula, but I'm using a product from Garnier Fructis right now that I like just as much. 

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in Light - I've gone through a few of these in the past, and I'll continue to repurchase! I love the easy to use applicator, and the product itself is also very good.

So there you have it - my March empties! I would love to know if you've tried any of these products before, and what products you've recently used up :)
