Welcome back to this regularly updated blog!
Remember when I used to diligently keep track of my empties every month and showed you what I used up? How about we just pretend that the last 8 months JUSTHAPPENED and that this isn’t embarrassingly late, at all? Cool?
June 2017 empties
Look, things I threw away before moving from Honolulu to London! In June! 2017!
The Body Shop Peppermint Reviving Leg Gel – This took me a long time to use up. It sat in my fridge forever, and I’d use it after running to soothe my muscles. It worked fairly well for that, but it was a bit sticky. I wouldn’t repurchase, simply because I haven’t gone running in about as long as I haven’t done these empties post, and I don’t miss this leg gel. Also, it’s cold here.
L’Oreal EverPure Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner – These were also just okay. I don’t normally have strong feelings or opinions on shampoo and conditioners, unless they’re especially awful. I don’t spend nearly as much effort into research and care of my hair as I do for makeup. :P
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo – Another just okay. Wasn’t the best at oil control or volumizing. I did like that it was unscented, though. I don’t think I can find this brand here in the UK, so whatever.
Perfume samples! I had made it a point to spray a bit every day before leaving to go to work, in order to whittle away at my stash of little perfume samples. I don’t remember any thoughts I had about any of these, though.
Dolce & Gabbana Dolce
Givenchy Dahlia Divin
Marc Jacobs Daisy
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
Dior Miss Dior
Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensée
No idea if these were eau de toilette or eau de parfum. #notaperfumeblogger
Foil packet samples. I find these really annoying to use.
Korres Wild Rose Advanced Brightening & Nourishing Face Oil – Case in point. Have you ever tried to use a foil packet sample of a facial oil? It’s a disaster waiting to happen. Now, it’s probably the most cost efficient way to send out a little sample, but it is messy as hell. Plus, even when I called it done, it leaked all over everything else in my empties bag. Boo.
The product itself had a weird smell, and I didn’t notice that it did anything magical for me. It was really oily too, like it never fully sunk into my skin. I guess I’m used to drier feeling oils? (I know next to nothing about different facial oils.)
Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel – wat. I have no recollection of what I thought about this. I think I liked it better than The Body Shop’s peel that I had sampled around the same time?
This is probably why you should write empties post in a timely manner, Jen. Otherwise, it’s all useless, unhelpful gibberish about trash. Why even.
Anthony Ingrown Hair Treatment – LOL. Um, I think I used this for my armpits, and it was enough for one use. Did I notice anything? No, not really. Apparently it’s for men’s beards. Hahaha, k.
Clarins Double Serum – Drawing a blank for this one too.
