June 2013 Empties

by - Monday, June 24, 2013

  It is that time again, we are taking a peek at my empties bag (and my ugly apartment floors).
 First up is some face masks!
Marcelle Hydra-C Cleansing + Exfoliating Clothes (15 count) - I love these wipes, this is the second pack I've gone through. I really like the exfoliating side. Would I buy it again? YES! I've got another pack on the go right now.
Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Wipes (30 count)  These are their brighting wipes and it also says age refresh on them. I really like the packaging with its snap and how well they cleaned. This was my first time using anything from the "Yes to ..." line of products. Would I buy it again?  Yes, I liked them. If they are ever  on sale I would definitely consider buying them again.
On to some hair goodies:
Tresemmé Platinum Strength Conditioning Treatment (175 ml)  I got this in a GlossyBox. Would I buy it again?  Maybe, it was ok...I think was good, but not great
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Everlasting Blonde Conditioner I got this in the mail and used it while away last week Would I buy it again?  I don't have blonde hair, but it was a good conditioner that left my hair feeling nice. I would maybe buy the red version.
John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Conditioner  Oh my, it is gone!!! It is gone!! The last of the seemingly never ending bottles of conditioner are gone!!! Ok if you haven't read about it before 2 years ago I picked one of these up for $2 at dollarama, liked it and got more, forgot I got more and got more. I felt good about the choice, but then realized my hair was really heavy and well it took 2 years to use it all up. Would I buy it again?  Ok it is a good conditioner and to be honest if I saw it at dollarma I might buy it again for the $2 but I think I might have lost my mind if I chose to do that., so I am going with no.
Kérastase Elasto-Curl I got this from my hair dresser, someone gave it to her, I used it super sparingly because of its cost and how much I loved it. Would I buy it again?  If it was on sale or at a discounted price I would.
 Some makeup:
Elf Studio Tinted Moisturizer with spf 20  I got this so long ago I cannot remember, I liked it a lot but found it a bit heavy. I needed a lot to get the coverage I liked so I always felt like I over applied the product. Would I buy it again? It was so cheap I think I would. I like the full spectrum spf (which seems hard to find in most bb or cc creams).
Elf Mineral Mist  I like the mist on this so much better then the studio version. Would I buy it again?  I cannot find it on the elf site right now, so I am guessing it is discontinued. I do like it more then the studio version primarily due to the pump and the way it has a finer mist.
Clinique Brown-Black Pencil this was a gwp item that was given to me. It is automatic but does not retract. Would I buy it again? I do like it a lot and when I use up all my pencils (laughs in head, yeah right never happening) I will definitely consider it.
Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes Eyeliner in Black  I got this in a set a long time ago, it never was as good as people told me and has seemed to have dried up Would I buy it again? no. It just wasn't that great at being waterproof.
Hard Candy 1000 Lashes Mascara in Mermaid Teal I got this after reading about it in a magazine and how fantastic it was. I was also very interested in fibre mascaras. It was dry to start with and never went on easy. The fibres would flake into my eyes and stick to them. Would I buy it again? No! I really wanted to like this mascara, I really did, but it is one of the worst I have ever used.
 One more hair item and some body stuff:
Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo (350 ml bottle) I got this a few years back after I used a yellow spray in my hair on halloween. It worked well to remove the residue I just could not get out of my hair other wise. Since then I've used it about once a month to remove any buildup. It does a good job and it lasted for years. Would I buy it again? Yes, I have the live clean cleansing shampoo right now, I don't find it does as good of a job.
The Body Shop Shower Gels For Earth Lovers Apricot and Basil (250 ml)  I had just a bit left of this in my closet so I thought it was a good time to finally use it up. I love the smell and the eco friendliness of the product. Would I buy it again? Sadly I think it  is no longer available, if it was I would buy it for sure.
Vitabath Bath and Shower Gelée (300 g) in Plus for Dry Skin I love this stuff, it brings back childhood memories. This is the classic bubble bath I think all moms in Canada used at one point. Lush bubbles that last a fair amount of time and a very potent fragrance that lingers. Would I buy it again? Yes! Right now I am using a smaller bottle I got in a Glossybox that is also in the same scent ( I've also busted out a hand cream in the same smell, I get lots of comments and complements whenever I use it).
Bath and Body Works Forever Sunshine (250 ml) I love this scent!!! By far a favourite of mine. It took me a while to use it up because I started to use a pump and I just tend to need less that way. Would I buy it again? YES! Sadly though Bath and Body Works discontinued it. I have a stash though. For now I am using The Body Shop's Mango body wash.
Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy This travel size has been with me a while, I finally used it up last week when I went away. Would I buy it again?  I got it at the outlet so it is no longer available. I did like it though.
Some other stuff:
MaskerAide Beauty Restore Masque: I love these masks, right now my skin is feeling a bit off so I am trying to make it a habit to use them more often. Would I buy it again? Yes!!!! I love the whole MaskerAide line of masks, they never steer my wrong.
Montagne Jeunesse Dea Sea Mud Spa Mask This was a first for me. The first sheet mud/clay mask I've ever seen or used. I really like how it felt and smelled. My skin definitly felt a lot smoother and clearer  after using it Would I buy it again?  Yes I would. It isn't pricy (about $2.99 at walmart) and I really like how it didn't cause burning on my face like many clay/mud products do. Aslo cleaning up was really easy with it being a sheet.
Burts Bees Hand Cream (25 g)  I got this in a Glossybox and went through it far Would I buy it again?  No, It was small, I didn't love the smell and I personally need a thicker hand cream.
David's Tea Organic Kanpe Tea (50g) I got this tea this fall and I love the fruity taste of it hot or cold. Would I buy it again? Yes! All profits from the sale of this tea go to KANPE, which is an organization that helps the people in Haiti.
David's Tea Mango Fruit Punch (26g) This was just a sample bag, but I fell in love Would I buy it again?  Yes, I wanted to get some last time I was in a David's Tea but they were sold out.
Olay Razor I've said it once, I'll say it again, this razor sucks. You might notice there is no razor in the picture, it broke off. Would I buy it again?  No!
The Body Shop Hand Cream in Ginger Sparkle (30 ml) I got this during the holidays, I loved it so much Would I buy it again? Yes, maybe next year I will pick another one up. It was thick enough, lasted a while and smelled great.
Cosmedicine Opti-Mologist Eye Cream (7ml) Eye cream sample that I've had forever Would I buy it again?  No, I never liked it.
Murad Enviromental Shield Essential C Eye Cream Protect (.25 oz)  A very old sample I never really liked and thought it was time to toss Would I buy it again? No, it never struck me as very good.
L'oreal Feria Power Red in Cherry Bomb R57  I have used two of these in the past 10 weeks. Would I buy it again?  Yes, so far I am still loving this shade.
