September Empties

Wanna go through my trash with me? I promise some of the things are pretty cool! I will start from the top left corner and make my way to the bottom.

Cover FX acne clarifying primer- I received this deluxe sample in an ipsy bag I don’t even know how long ago. I kinda kept putting off trying it because I assumed since it has salicylic acid in it that it would dry my face out. I was so wrong. This stuff was amazing, and I did see a difference in my face in terms of breakouts! I squeezed the life out of that thing. I wish the full sized product wasn’t so expensive :/

Tone soothing body wash- this was a sample I got in the mail and I used it just to try it and throw it away. I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh it smells. I like fresh body wash smells with no fruity scents, and this one does not have a fruity scent.

Natural Style deep conditioning treatment- This sample came in my beauty box 5 last month with another hair treatment, and I am probably going to end up buying the full sized product. I love the way this made my hair feel super soft the next day without weighing it down or making it look greasy.

Barefoot exfoliating scrub- another product I got in a subscription box of some sort. I wasn’t too impressed with this exfoliating scrub. It smells nice and fresh, but it’s not very exfoliating? Just feels like a body wash with beads.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask- this is actually my second time using this mask and I LOVE it. Seriously, next time you’re at The Body Shop or Ulta pick one up. They are tingly and fresh feeling, but don’t leave your face feeling dry and dehydrated. I have noticed a difference in my skin the next day if I use this mask at the beginning of a breakout.

Dove Oxygen Moisture shampoo and conditioner- more samples! I’ve been pretty bored lately since one of our cars bit the dust (rest in pieces, junk car) so I have been trying everything I’ve been meaning to try. These came in a walmart beauty box that a friend recommended to me, and I actually like it. Dove isn’t normally a brand I reach for, but the smell of these was nice and left my hair feeling fresh and soft.

Vitabath body wash- I got this in a beauty box 5 box a few months back, and looking back I remember why I put off trying it. It’s cherry scented. Maybe it would be nice for others, but I hate the smell of fruity body washes. Other than the awful (to me) scent it felt like your typical everyday body wash. Nothing special about it.

Aussie Moist Shampoo and 3 min miracle deep conditioner- This is actually a normal everyday product for me. I love the scent of Aussie products and even more so I love how they make my hair feel. I use the 3 min miracle deep conditioner instead of the moist conditioner because I only wash my hair once per week, twice max. So, that little thing lasts me on average a month (I have super thick and long hair) and the shampoo on average lasts me 2-3 months. This is a staple for me though and I would recommend it to anyone with frizzy, curly hair.

Lady speed stick deodorant- also another staple for me. I have about 1 million as back ups in this since I coupon and got a ton for free. I love it. It’s not overly scented and keeps me dry, even when I am cleaning or running errands.

Ulta warm vanilla sugar body scrub- another product that I tore the top off of so I could squeeze the life out of it. I love this stuff. It’s a body scrub that foams. That’s right, it foams up. It’s an actual scrub so it does exfoliate the skin and smells like vanilla. This was always my go to scrub if I was having a bad day and just wanted to feel soft and pretty during a hot shower. I may cut the top off and try to get the rest out…
cheap girl problems.

Burt’s Bees sensitive skin makeup remover wipes- yet another staple in my routine. These are the only wipes that remove my makeup without burning my skin or breaking me out. I received a ton of coupons for this product just so I could stock up on them. My love for them is that real.

Frank’s all natural body scrub- I saved this one for last since it will probably be the one thing I talk about the most. This was a new product for me, and I tried it simply because so many bloggers were raving about it. I wanted to see what the hype was about and also see if it was any different from homemade coffee scrubs. Yes, it is so different from homemade coffee scrubs. The product itself arrives in an envelope that you just open and use. It’s not dry, but it’s not wet. It smells amazing! Mostly like coffee, but there’s a faint orange smell to it as well. I usually shampooed and rinsed my hair and then turned the shower off and scrubbed this in and waited for 10 mins. It made my skin feel so soft! I am seriously so impressed with this product, and I can’t wait to purchase another pack of it. It lasted me about a month at using it 2 times per week, which is how long it says it will last on the website. Definitely worth the $15 if you’re looking for a product to pamper yourself with sometimes. We all deserve to feel pampered.
Warning: There are a lot of sexual innuendos on the packaging (I love them, personally) and this stuff does easily get into your hair and is a bitch to clean out of your shower. The first time I used it I thought someone had crapped on my shower curtain. Still worth it.
