March Empties

1. EOS Shave Cream in Pomegranate Raspberry - I've reviewed this before and I don't really like it. It only slightly moisturizes and it really clogs up the razor. I really liked the scent, so I bought a new lip balm in it. Repurchase - No.

2. John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Conditioner - I didn't love or hate this conditioner. It was just OK. I kind of expected more from John Frieda. I found that it really didn't add much moisture into my dry hair. Repurchase - No.

3. Herbal Essences Colour Me Happy Shampoo - This shampoo was over a year old, from the last time I dyed my hair. I didn't find that it overly did much when my hair was coloured or when it wasn't. I do like the Herbal Essence brand though and will continue to purchase their shampoos. Repurchase - Not this exact shampoo, but others I will.

4. Nivea Refreshing Toner - This is my current Holy Grail toner! It smells amazing, gets all the dirt/oil/makeup off my face, and leaves my skin feeling moisturized. Repurchase - Yes.
5. Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub - I love this stuff! It smells so good, like you are putting strawberry shortcake on your face. Although the strawberry seeds do exfoliate nicely, I wish it was a bit more scrubby. Repurchase - Yes.

6. Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel - I didn't really enjoy this cleanser. It didn't lather, smelt kinda funky, and I didn't feel like it really cleansed my skin. Repurchase - No.

7. Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser - I loved this cleanser! It foamed up nicely and gave a very gentle clean. After using this I always felt like I got all the dirt and makeup off my face. Repurchase - Yes.

8. Kirkland Daily Facial Cleansing Towelettes - These wipes really remove all my makeup with just one or two swipes. They are not drying to the skin and have a nice scent. Repurchase - Yes.
9. EOS Summer Fruit Lip Balm - I really like these lip balms and they are perfect for in your purse. I really liked the scent and I only used half, but it lasted forever. I just didn't find it sanitary anymore, so I am throwing it out. Repurchase - Yes.

10. Seche Vite Top Coat - As I've said before, this is one of the best top coats I have ever used. I just wish it didn't get thick and goopy after you've used half. Repurchase - Yes.

11. China Glaze Code Orange Mini Nail Polish - I received this in my very first Luxe Box almost two years ago. At the time I really liked the colour, but now I think that it just looks gross on my nails. Plus it is getting slightly goopy so I'm throwing it out. Repurchase - Yes.

12. Calvin Klein Splendid Basis Protective Base Coat - This base coat did not protect my nails from staining and caused my nail polish to peel after a few days. Repurchase - No.

13. Leaves Mini Candle - I love the smell of this candle (I know...typical blogger statement). This mini candle burned for about 5 hours and I loved every minute of it. Repurchase - Yes.

14. Quo Blush Brush - This is my second one in less than a year. I am not impressed with this brush at all. It sheds from day one and within a few months all the bristles are broken in half and it hurts my face to use, because the bristles are so picky. Repurchase - No.


  1. I almost purchased the EOS Shave Cream too! So glad I read your review first. Thanks!

  2. I hated that Quo blush brush...the shedding was ridiculous. I felt like I had a cat for a brush!

  3. I found exactly the same with John Frieda but for blondes...not overly impressed at all it made my hair so dry!
    Love empties posts!


    I'd love it if you took a look at my blog here!: RebeccaRuby - A lifestyle blog

  4. That's so funny about the Quo blush brush - I just got rid of mine too because it was so bad! Hair shedding all over my face. I found an AMAZING blush brush from Sephora though, it's the 'Pro Precision Blush Brush' - I did a blog post about it last week if you're interested in checking it out :)
