Empties: Several Months Worth of Beauty Trash

Fall 2014 Empties
Fall 2014 Empties

I’ve been saving my empties for an ungodly amount of time because I knew that at some point I wanted to start blogging again. I didn’t realize how much stuff I’d use up LOL. Unfortunately, I wasn’t great about keeping track of every single thing I used up. I know there were more products but I’ll try to do better for the next empties post.

Fall 2014 Empties


Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub – This was not very exfoliating. I’m glad I’m finally done with it.
Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner – This is an old favorite and I plan to repurchase soon.
4 x Trader Joe’s Spa Natural Facial Cleaning Pads with Tea Tree Oil – I love this and plan to repurchase soon.
The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion – I love this and have already repurchased a few.
GlamGlow Youthmud TingleExfoliate Treatment – This seemed pretty good but I can’t justify the price so I will not purchase it.
Naobay Oxygenating Moisturizing Cream – This was not bad but it wasn’t great either. It somehow felt kind of heavy but also not very moisturizing at the same time.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Moisturizer – I bought a full size of this. Love it.
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in Natural Mint – I repurchased this already. It’s good for keeping in my purse.

Bath, Body and Hair

Burt’s Bees Extra Energizing Citrus & Ginger Body Wash – This was just okay. It didn’t lather much or seem to clean super well so I will not repurchase.
Thierry Mugler Alien Radiant Shower Gel – This is a pretty strong scent so I have a hard time actually wearing the perfume for fear of bothering others but I really liked the body wash. It also did a really nice job of cleaning. Not planning to repurchase but I’ll keep it on my radar.
Skintimate Skin Therapy Moisturizing Shave Gel With Vitamin E – This wasn’t bad but I find that using body wash or soap does just as good a job and it’s one less thing cluttering up my shower.
Aqua Spa Relax Body Crème (Lavender + Chamomile scent) – I enjoyed this. It was a decent moisturizer and smelled pretty good. The only thing is that I didn’t think the scent was authentic, it smelled sort of synthetic to me. Not planning to repurchase.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Body Butter – This stuff smells amazing, moisturizes well, and soaks in thoroughly. I wish this was available all year but it’s not. So I bought a bunch of backups to last me all year. Hopefully they have it again next fall.
Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Lightly Whipped Body Buttercream – I love how well this moisturized. It left my skin super soft after it soaked in but I’m not a huge fan of the scent so I don’t plan to buy it.
Ayres Patagonia Body Butter Deluxe Sample – This was a decent moisturizer but the scent wasn’t something I’d want to wear on a daily basis so I won’t purchase it.
Uberliss Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner – These were just okay. I liked the shampoo a bit better than the conditioner but neither wowed me so I will not be purchasing.


J.R. Watkins Lemon Cream Hand Cream – I was addicted to this at one point, then I kind of forgot about it. And recently I decided to start using it again. It’s fairly heavy for the summer but it’s great in the winter. I might repurchase when I run out of the other hand creams I have.
Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado Olive & Basil Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy – I liked the formula of this but the scent was just okay so I won’t repurchase.
Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy – The formula is nice but I didn’t really like the scent so I will not repurchase.
Le Couvent Des Minimes Gardener’s Hand Healer – This felt somewhat heavy/greasy so I don’t plan to repurchase.
Dr. Hunter’s Rosewater & Glycerine Hand Cream – I like the formula of this a lot but the scent was too over powering so I will not purchase the full size.
