August 2014 Empties!!!

Hey guys!  One of my favorite types of YouTube videos to watch are 'Empties.'  I have never done an Empties blogpost, because I cannot even stand the though of hanging on to garbage, lol.  It annoys me to no end, I'm way too type A for that sort of thing.   Instead I decided to snap a pic of things as it's going into the garbage can, that way I can share with you what I'm using up and I don't have to hang on to it.  Win/win???  I have had this draft saved for like months, so I guess I'll go ahead and share this and get it posted! 

First thing I used up, my Michael Todd Peppermint Wake Up Body Wash.  This was pretty good, not my favorite body wash, but I did enjoy it nonetheless.  Not only did I use it for a body wash, but I also used it with my Mr. Pumice bar to exfoliate my feet.  I adored it for that!

Huggies wipes.  I keep these at my vanity to use both during makeup application and when I'm swatching products.  Work great.

I most enjoyed the Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser, well, in the morning.  Smelled so clean and fresh and was a great pick me up.  Used it with my Clarisonic and would definitely repurchase.

Random bubble bath/body wash from BBW.  I love the simple scent of this.  I have SO many bubble baths and body washes to use up, so I'm not going to be repurchasing any for quite a while.

BBW Strawberry Lemonade body lotion!  This was temporarily (I think) released as one of their 'Classics.'  This was my go-to scent in high school, so using it again was fabulous.  I stocked up on this, so I have like, 5 or 6 more bottles of it.  Yay!

I have really grown to love The Body Shop products, and this Vitamin C moisturizer was no different.  I have bought this numerous times before and it will always be something I kind of keep in rotation.  Love it.

I try to incorporate a serum into my morning and night-time face care routines, and I used this puppy up in like no time.  It felt really nice, don't know how effective it was in it's claims to resurface your skin, but I did like it.  Unsure if I would repurchase.

My favorite body oil to use when I get out of the shower or bathtub.  I love silky smooth, supple skin. ALL over my body and this does just that.  As soon as I step out of the shower I put my hair up in a towel, apply a tiny amount of this on wet skin, then I towel my body off.  Leaves your skin buttery soft, to the point where lotion is totally optional.  Love it, won't EVER be without it.  It's kind of $$$ for a drugstore product, but you can get a smaller bottle for less $.  I get this at Wal-Mart and get the biggest bottle they have.   I have used this for at least 10 years and I simply can't be without it, period.

For the past 6 months or so all I've been using toothpaste wise is the Crest 3D White.  This one was great and I would definitely repurchase.  Right now I'm using the 3D White Luxe.  I can't really tell a big difference between the two, either way I love them both.  My teeth are naturally pretty white, so I don't know if they really whiten your teeth that much.  But, it tastes great and makes your teeth feel really clean, and the whitening agents don't make your teeth sensitive (which is something I frequently experience with bleaching products.)

I love Aveeno products whether it be stuff for the face, body, hair or what have you.  I have a couple of other Aveeno face washes I am using up, but whenever I did need to buy a new face wash this would be a definite possibility.  Although I will mention, I have been using a new face wash I bought at Sephora that I am totally loving, stay tuned for my August favorites to see what it is!

Caress body washes are some of my absolute favorites, and I LOVE this Passionate Spell scent.  How a body wash lathers is of uber importance to me, and these do a phenomenal job.  Will always repurchase this in whatever scent they have!

As I empty stuff up I will probably continue to do this type of thing.  You can really give a better review of a product if you've used it long enough to empty it, you know?  Anyways, have a great weekend everybody!!!  Ciao!!!!
