September 2016 Empties

I was able to finish up five products last month and have so many that are almost done. I’m happy that I was finally able to empty some of these products.

september 2016 empties

 

Empties

box naturals empty

Box Naturals Luxe Towelettes (RV $1.50 for sample size, $9 for full size): I received this product in my August Petit Vour Beauty Box. These wipes smelled lovely. Since I don’t really use wipes, I will not be repurchasing.

 

smith's rosebud salve empty

Smith’s Rosebud Salve (RV $6):  I really enjoyed this product. I used it mostly as a lip balm, but I also used it on my ankles, elbows and hands when they were feeling particularly dry. This product is a bit greasy. As much as I liked it as a lip balm, I don’t know if I’m going to buy it again because of the packaging. I feel like tins can get too germy.

 

blistex empty

Blistex Deep Renewal Lip Balm (RV $3.49): This is a pretty nice lip balm. It really seemed to moisturize my lips well. It doesn’t have much of a flavour and is slightly greasy in texture. I will not be repurchasing.

 

not your mother's empty

Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray (RV $5.99): I buy so many products that promise to make my hair do anything, but nothing ever works. This spray smells a bit salty and does give my hair some texture, but I don’t get pretty mermaid waves from using this whether I let it air-dry, curl or scrunch my hair. I won’t be purchasing this again because it didn’t really help me style my hair at all.

 

elf liner empty

E.l.f. Expert Eyeliner in ‘Jet Black’ (RV $2): I purchased this product to learn how to use liquid liner so that I could mess up without spending a ton of money and was pleasantly surprised at how great this liner was. The brush is nice and pointy and gives a very precise line. The product lasts all day unless you get it super wet. I will definitely buy this again when I use up the other liquid liners I have.

 

Until next time,

My July 2016 Benevolent Beauty Box

I was so excited back in June when I found out I won my July Benevolent Beauty Box. Winning things is always awesome, but winning an amazing beauty box made me the happiest girl! I received my shipping notification and patiently waited for my box. After a few days it still said the my box was in Pre-Shipping, so I waited some more. When it hit the two week point after receiving my tracking information, I e-mailed Benevolent Beauty Box and asked if they could possibly help me find my package. Rachel was so lovely and helpful. When she figured out that the box was lost, she offered me a number of different options to make up for it and I chose to receive a new box. Some of the items that were supposed to be in July’s box were out of stock, so Rachel offered to let me pick some items from past boxes to fill out the box. At the time, the company was also offering a free item promotion to receive a bonus item from a past box, so she included that in my July box as well. After all that, I got my July box and couldn’t be happier with the products or Benevolent Beauty Box’s superb customer service.
