Empties – AKA Trash Hoarding

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetIt’s about that time again for me to review my trash! I like empties posts because you know someone has an opinion on a product after using it all up. And I always like knowing if the product was re-purchased or not. So, here are my trash thoughts.

  • Batiste Dry Shampoo – blush
    • I absolutely LOVE Batiste dry shampoo, I’ve bought it too many times to count. What I didn’t love so much was this particular scent, so I’ll stay away from the blush scent from now on.
  • Lush Grease Lightning
    • I use this on any spots I get and I’ve found that it really helps them disappear more quickly. My skin responds really well to tea tree oil and that’s why I love this spot treatment, been using it for years.
  • Benefit They’re Real! mascara
    • I’ve repurchased this so many times, love it. It adds a bit of length and volume without being clumpy. Also, I really like the wand. I’m a messy mascara applier, but the rubber bristles and shape of this wand really help!
  • Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins moisturizer
    • This moisturizer was really great in the colder months when my skin was a bit more dry. And it smells amazing, like oranges. I would definitely repurchase, but I actually picked up the Origins GinZing moisturizer and I like that so far as well, bit lighter for the warmer months.
  • bareMinerals matte foundation
    • I’ve been using bareMinerals foundation for years now. I switched to the matte version because the original has an ingredient that was bothering my (very) sensitive skin. I like it because it’s medium coverage, but buildable.
  • BECCA highlighter – Champagne Pop
    • This gives an amazing, honey-hued highlight, but unfortunately I dropped mine and it smashed. So, this isn’t technically an empty, but kinda. I’ve been obsessed with theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer highlight for a few months now, so I won’t rush out to repurchase the BECCA one.
  • TRESemmé heat tamer leave-in spray
    • No hate to this brand… but I really don’t recommend this heat protectant. The spray nozzle broke the first moment I tried to use it, annoying. And then I continued to use it with the broken nozzle and I just still didn’t love it, so I’m calling it trash even though it’s not completely gone.
  • Murad Transforming Powder
    • I was almost out of this and couldn’t find it at Sephora, so I actually ordered it online. It’s a cleanser and exfoliator, but since it’s a powder, it exfoliates more gently than a scrub, which is great for sensitive skin.
  • Lush Tea Tree Water Toner
    • See what I mean about tea tree oil? I’ve been using this one for years as well. If your skin responds well to tea tree, you might want to give this a try! Lush products are handmade with fresh ingredients and they don’t test on animals, which I really appreciate.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

  1. Hahahaha! My mom asked me why I had a basket of empty bottles and I had to explain to her why. I think I actually said something along the lines of “I have to do a product empties post for my blog, it’s where I show off my trash!” and she laughed quite a bit! I haven’t tried tea tree oil but I’ve been curious to do so! I’m trying to use more natural products so Lush would be perfect for me to shop at. I just wish I had one close to me as I’m not good at imagining smells if I shop online. It’s tough!

    • hahaha yesss! gotta show people our trash 😂 I try to do the same, my skin seems to like natural products much better, but that’s definitely tough! I’m not a huge fan of imagining smells either, although I do think tea tree smells lovely, everyone’s nose is different!
