Empties #6

Greetings from the Dark Side!

Here are some empties from the past three weeks. I have kept all the empty containers, but I really want to throw them out now! But before that, I want to show you what I have used up and what I think of these products now that I am finished with them :D

1. Clear Total Care Conditioner
I LOVE this brand of hair care! I have already purchased numerous bottles of the shampoo and conditioner and I am not switching any time soon. I have noticed a huge difference in my hair since I started using this brand. I love it so much! I will definitely be repurchasing!
2. Batiste Dry Shampoo in 'Blush'
I have owned this stuff for ages, and it is hands down the best dry shampoo I have tried (granted, I have only tried 2 or 3 others). It is affordable and it works. I actually already repurchased it it the scent 'Cherry'.

3. Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper (old packaging, sample)
I found an extra sample of the Eyeshadow Helper so I used it up. I really like this primer! It is the best primer I have tried, though certainly not the cheapest.
4. Wet n Wild Turn Up The Volume mascara 
This mascara was okay. It was not that impressive and it did not make my lashes look fantastic. I will not be repurchasing this mascara.
5. Maybelline Mega Plush mascara
I actually liked this mascara a lot. It was not super amazing HG status, but it was rather exceptional. I think I would repurchase it, although it is difficult to say. I don't tend to buy the same mascara more than once unless I really like it. In fact the only mascaras I have repurchased are the Prestige ones.

6. Simple Cleansing Wipes
I recently tried to find makeup wipes that could replace my Bioderma cleansing water. I love Bioderma but it is expensive and I have to purchase it online. I want to have a second option to a makeup remover. Makeup wipes are usually too harsh for my skin, but these are actually really great. They remove makeup gently, and leave my skin feeling clean rather than itchy and red. I bought them for less than $3 and they lasted me for a month. I will definitely repurchase these!
7. Dead Sea Elements Cleansing Wipes
These were the other makeup wipes I tried and I HATE them. They irritated my skin so much!
I even used them on my hand to remove some makeup swatches and it left the skin on my hand with red bumps. Sadly, these just were not ideal for my skin type so I will not repurchase.

8. John Frieda 3-Day Straight Styling Spray
This is another product I have had for ages! I have a love/hate relationship with this. I like it because it does actually keep my hair really straight for more at least 2 days (I can't stand to not wash my hair for more than two days!). On the other hand, I hate this because it gives my hair a weird feeling. It makes it feel dirty and sticky. It definitely does not agree with my hair completely. Because of that, I don't think I would repurchase this.
9. Gelous Base Coat
This is my favorite base coat! That's really all I have to say! I have already repurchased this because I love it!
10. Artistry Soothing Creme
This is the face cream I use day and night. I have been using this for years and it works just fine for me! I always have a backup handy for whenever I need it.


  1. I love maybelline mascara too! Really amazing

  2. I should try that dry shampoo, the only one ive used in the past was from got2be and it just made my hair feel weird.. I don't know I just wasn't a huge fan.

  3. Hurray for finish more stuff! I just posted my product empties too ^_^

  4. Is this a drugstore dry shampoo? I've never heard of this brand over here! I know it'd be branching out of the usual but it would be REALLY interesting to see a hair care routine post! I feel like no matter what I do, I cannot tame my frizz lol

    1. I find Batiste at Urban Outfitters, and I have no idea where else it is sold. I know you can find it very cheap online like on Amazon or Ebay.

    2. Gonna save up some no-buy money and check it out, thank you!!

  5. OH ALSO before you throw away your empties, save some for the Origins trade-in Earth Day event. They give out their moisturizers for fweeeeee.

  6. Great empties post. I find I don't get too many empties other than hair care and body washes. I mix it up between my products so much. Batiste is the only dry shampoo and use, and that works for me. I love all the different scents. I need to try the simple wipes, because for me most face wipes leave my skin irritated which is annoying because I never would have said I have sensitive skin! Xx

  7. I've really been looking for a dry shampoo in my country, but the only one available in the markets is Toni & Guy. I wish I can get something like Batiste Dry Shampoo which is more affordable.

  8. What do you like about the shampoo? Like what makes it so good? I ask because I've had my eye on it LOl

    1. I feel that it actually does what it says! It cleans my hair without stripping it. It feels moisturized and healthy! It has helped a lot to repair my damaged hair. I used to get a lot of split ends, but I don't anymore. :)

  9. Batiste is the best dry shampoo I've ever tried.

  10. Gelous is great over glitter polishes--the gritty feeling can bug me, and this is thick enough that it creates a smooth layer over the top. I'm torn on how I feel about John Frieda's Frizz Ease 3 day straight... It does help get my hair straight and keep it straight even when it's been in a pony tail. But it does make my hair feel a little weird and sticky.

  11. I want to try the new LC eyeshadow helper, hopefully if I can go to the new beauty expo in June I might check it out. I totally didn't think of adding my body washes and stuff to my empties...duh. LOL.

  12. i think i need to look for that dry shampoo. ok actually i don't know what is good dry shampoo. this one (my first dry shampoo ever) i am using (some cheap No Brand shampoo) useless - when i spray it, it make this mess with my hear, and when i comb my hair down, it's the same like it was before spraying

  13. Never try dry shampoo before, wow that's a lot of empties.


Thank you for taking the time to comment <3 I appreciate every single comment I receive ^_^
