Current Empties

So here are my current empties from the past few months. I've kinda been hoarding empty product containers and thought it was time to empty the empties bin. Since I am now keeping track of an inventory list I needed to get rid of all the empty products that weren't included on the list.
1) EOS Shave Cream - I bought this on a whim because it was on sale at Shoppers and I love the EOS Lip Balms. This was kind of a disappointment to me. I didn't find it overly moisturizing and I found it clogged up the razor. The smell was nice but I wouldn't repurchase this again. For less money I have used better shave gels and creams.
2) Herbal Essences Bye Bye Breakage 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner - I love this stuff. I got it on sale for $1 at Walmart but knew I would love it because I use Herbal Essences on a regular basis. I found that this shampoo really helped me with breakage and split ends. I have three more bottles to use up but I would repurchase.

3) Evolvh Shampoo & Conditioner - I got this in a past Glymm Bag and really enjoyed these samples. They smelled great and my hair felt really clean afterwards. I would repurchase this if it was more readily available.
4) Pantene Shampoo & Conditioner - I received these samples in a P&G Sampler Box and thought they were okay. I have never been a huge fan of Pantene hair products. I think they work mediocre. I would not repurchase the full sizes.
5) TruTerra Shampoo & Conditioner - I took these samples from a hotel in Toronto when I was there for a wedding. They smell like lemongrass and I liked how the scent lingered in my hair. However, I found the shampoo extremely drying and the conditioner didn't remedy that. I can't purchase a full size and I don't think that I would use this again.

6) Biore Pore Strip - I have used these before and really like them. I will continue to repurchase in the future.
7) Mai Couture Foundation Papers - This foundation was very shimmery and I really didn't like how it looked on my skin. I would not repurchase.
8) La Fresh Makeup Remover Wipes - The scent of these were ok, but I didn't enjoy using them. I felt like they left an oily residue on my skin. I would not repurchase.
9) Free Your Mane Shampoo & Conditioner - This was another Glymm Sample. I heard good things about this duo but when I finally got around to using it didn't see any results. I didn't really like the smell and my hair didn't feel any different after. I would not repurchase this.

10) Various Face Cream Samples - I used these over a week and the only one I somewhat liked was the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense lotion. I felt that the others were not good with my skin type and left an oily film on my skin and didn't fully absorb. I would repurchase the Clinique one though because it really helped my dry skin.

11) Caryl Baker Visage Eye Gel - I didn't see any results from using this but want to continue using an eye cream. This one is kind of expensive so I would not repurchase this one.
12) MAC Select Concealer - I transferred the rest of my concealer to this bottle when it would no longer squeeze out of the tube. I would repurchase this.
13) Mario Badescu Ceramide Eye Gel - This made me break out. I would not repurchase.
14) Avon Cream to Powder Eyeshadow - This was a really pretty silver-lavender colour and I used about 75% of the product before it dried out. I would repurchase this.

15) Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream - I liked this but I didn't think it was anything special. I would not repurchase.
16) Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion - I really really liked this toner. It smelt great and make my skin feel amazing! I would definitely repurchase.
17) Cyberderm H2O Hydration - This cream is really nice and I like that there isn't a scent to it. Because it is so expensive I would not repurchase.
18) L'Oreal Liquid Liner - This is my favourite liquid liner I've used so far. I would repurchase.

19) Marcelle Essentials Makeup Remover - This is my holy grail makeup remover. It is seriously amazing and nothing compares. I will use this forever and I cant find anything bad about it. If you haven't tried this before, get it, you wont be disappointed.

20) Nivea Natural Beauty Face Cleanser - This cleanser is really gentle but has slight exfoliating beads which really makes it feel like your skin is getting really clean. It smells really good and the bottle lasts a long time. I would repurchase this.


  1. I always wanted to know how the EOS shave cream was... I guess I won't hurry out and go buy it..


  2. I hated the sample of EOS shave cream. It was so thick and yes, it clogged up the razor! It's nothing special in my books...

  3. wow you used up so many of your samples! i always feel so accomplished when i do that. :) i'm currently working on a different marcelle eye make up remover and i do like it so maybe i'll try the essentials once i'm done with some of my other removers (i have so many i need to use up, it's not even funny)!
