July 2018 Empties

July 2018 (1)

I think I did really well last month, in terms of using products up anyway, and this month I used up exactly the same amount of products, which is bittersweet. It’s nice to not be using up fewer products but I was hoping to use up more than the previous month. Oh well, maybe August is my month. Anyway, let’s jump into talking about some products that I’ve used up.


Pixi Glow Tonic – This is a staple in my skin care, it’s the only toner I used and it’s the only one that I’ve ever really liked. I have used up multiple bottles before, I think this one is either my third or fourth and I love it. Repurchase: Already have.

Pink Warm & Cozy Body Mist – I have used up another one of these in the past and I really enjoy the smell of these, but I am just not really into body mists anymore. The scent doesn’t last long enough and I don’t feel like hauling a big old bottle of body mist around with me all day so I can smell good. Repurchase: Probably not, though this one does smell really great.

Colourpop Cry Baby Liner – This is in my project pan and no, I did not really finish this one up, I was using it one day and the liner completely fell out of the tube and got squished on the floor when I was trying to pick this up. Repurchase: Maybe. It’s a good formula but I’m not sure about the color.

Garnier Waterproof Micellar Cleansing Wipes – These are a staple for me, you’ve seen them before and you will see them again. These are fantastic. Repurchase: Duh.

Fresh Lip Balm – This is just the regular/classic one and I really loved it, I’m super sad to see it go because it is so expensive. I really enjoyed this while it lasted, right now I am testing out a product that seems like a dupe to me, though the scent is wrong and that kind of makes me sad, the scent of the fresh lip balms are so good. Repurchase: Probably will during the winter or the next Sephora sale.

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian – This is just a little sample size but it took me far longer to finish than I expected for it to. I have had this a while and this is completely the reason why I have picked up other full-on lip creams since this one. These are a fantastic formula and super easy to reapply. Repurchase: Yeah, I would probably purchase a full size.

Lush First Snow Dusting Powder – I have had this forever, meaning at least three years, I bought this before I moved here and it just recently expired. I found this dusting powder to be really hard to use up, especially since it has glitter and shimmer in it. I did used it up, mostly, and I am happy to see it go. Repurchase: No, I love the smell but hated the shimmer.


Healthy Sexy Hair Leave In Conditioner – Another product that is a frequent flier in these empties of mine, this is the only leave in conditioner I use and I love it, it’s my favorite and the best. Repurchase: Already have, I’m on my last bottle with the old packaging style.

Bath & Body Works Oh Happy Day Foaming Hand Soap – I love this scent and I love this packaging even more, this entire summer collection with this packaging is too cute. These are my favorite hand soaps, they smell really good and get the job done. Repurchase:  I actually did.

Soft Lips Watermelon – This was just a random whim purchase and it was fine, it’s not my favorite chapstick but it does the job and it smells pretty good. Repurchase: Eh.

Estee Lauder DayWear Moisturizer – This is a mini size because I wanted to try it out, after loving the nightwear so much that I purchased a full size. I liked this, I’m not sure it’s my favorite daytime moisturizer but it was nice. Repurchase: Maybe.

The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel – This is my all time favorite scent from The Body Shop and hands down one of my favorite scents ever, it just smells really good and I love it. This shower gel felt really nice, the smell was strong and it lasted on the skin. Repurchase: Yes, I would completely.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum – I picked this up on a whim at a TjMaxx a while back, mostly because I had heard nothing but good things about this product. I have tried it and put it in a favorites even, though I didn’t sound too sure that I loved it then. I love the smell of this a lot but I am not sure that the serum itself did anything for my skin. Repurchase: Probably not.

And those are all of the products that I used up during the month of July, a pretty good mix of thing and a pretty good amount I think. As per usual, I am hoping to use up more product during the month of August but we will just have to wait and see how that one goes.

What products have you used up recently?

    1. The fresh lip balms are the best, they are just so expensive. I’m hoping for a holiday gift set that makes it sting a little less, haha. Satsuma is one of the best scents from the body shop, it’s sooo good.
