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,

July 2016 Empties

We’re already close to two weeks into August and I have yet to post my July empties or reviews of any of my July beauty boxes! It’s been so hot and humid in most of our house that it’s impossible to sit in the office for more than two minutes to type anything up. I’m really hoping Fall comes early this year.

I used up a decent amount of products last month. Most items were products I use regularly. I’m trying to use more of the sample sized products I have around the house, so hopefully I’ll have a lot to write about for August.

April 2016 Vegan Cuts Beauty Box

Vegan Cuts was the first subscription box I subscribed to. I really enjoy their beauty box and have received so many great products since I started getting the boxes in October 2015. I’ve found that I’m constantly pleasantly surprised by the selection of products. I’ve gotten so many things I thought I was going to hate that I’ve already re-purchased or plan to buy when I run out. April’s box was no exception.
