Quarterly Empties

Hey guys!

I know this is supposed to be a Challenge post but I'm very lazy and haven't edited or uploaded those pictures yet. So maybe you'll see that post on Thursday, lol. 

So this is my first Empties Post. I love seeing what other people are using and while I'm not the most exciting user of products (nor do I use enough to do a monthly post), I thought it would be fun to do a quarterly empties post. Let's see if I remember to do this again in 3 months, haha! I'll try really hard to come up with a post next month :-p

First, the overview.... see, not a lot of stuff for 3 months worth! LOL 

Beauty Secrets Acetone: Clearly, I use a lot of nail polish remover and I like this one from Sally Beauty Supply. It has a slight scent to it.. just enough to cut the acetone smell so it's not completely unbearable. I'll definitely be buying more. I've been avoiding Sally's so I won't buy ALL THE POLISH!

Bath & Body Works Aqua Blossom Foaming  Hand Soap: One of my favorite soap scents. I love the foaming soaps from BBW... so nice! This is a scent I frequently purchase.

L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara: I am always trying new drugstore mascara because what woman isn't in search of the perfect eyelashes? I've not found a lot of mascara's that actually do what they claim. Maybe I'm too dumb to notice but they all just seem to be pretty standard to me. I did notice that this didn't clump and that is always a plus. I might repurchase, if it's on sale. Otherwise, nothing I would run out to grab.

Degree NaturEffects Honeysuckle: Deodorant is another thing I am constantly change up. I'll probably buy this again at some point, mainly because I loved the scent, but I'm currently using a different brand/product.

Qtica Cool Sugar Scrub: This smells totally and completely amazing with a delicious fresh cool mint smell and I would definitely repurchase it EXCEPT that it was very difficult to squeeze out of the tube. Like, I had to use both hands to squeeze the container. Even taking the cap off didn't help. Soooo... unless it comes in a tub or they change the cap, I probably wouldn't buy this again.

Bath & Body Works Pomegranate Citrus Scrub: This smelled wonderful, very fresh and fruity. And a nice wide mouth/cap! I'd probably re-purchase this. It's a very nice summer scent.

Pantene Moisture Mist Detangler: This is one of my favorite products that I use every single day. I have very fine but thick hair and even though I condition in the shower, I need this to help me brush the tangles out of my hair! I always re-buy this.

Tucker Hill Designs Bubble Bath in Chamomile and Lavender: First off, I love the ease of use for this product. One envelope is a bath serving (serving?) and while that sounds stupid to say 'ease of use' for bubble bath... it's simple, lol. This had a nice scent and provided plenty of bubbles. I like bubbles.

Antoinette's Bath House Bubble Bath Cake in Bad Romance and Lilac Ginger Fizz: First of all, go here and look at how beautiful this bath cake is...IT'S BLUE AND GLITTERY! Second, it's smelled wonderful. I'm a floral person, no doubt, and this was right up my alley. AND it didn't leave me or my tub glittery, although I was a little bit hoping that it would :-/

Both of those bubble cakes provided plenty of bubbles and felt very moisturizing. Ahhhh... I love taking a nice bubble bath.

I've used plenty of other bath bombs/bubble cakes but they either didn't have packaging that I wanted to save or I forgot and threw it away, lol. I'll try to be better for next time :-)

Do you guys like to see these kinds of posts? What are some of the products that you are using up and would recommend??

Talk to you soon!
