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.

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,

Summer 2016 Vegan Cuts Makeup Box

Vegan Cuts recently launched a new quarterly subscription box specifically for makeup lovers. I really questioned subscribing to this because I don’t really need more makeup right now, but curiosity won out. I was really happy with this first box and I’m going to stay signed up, at least for now!
