»Empties January 2014 Edition«

I love this song! And I like to listen to music that I never heard of before because it makes me remember things the next time I hear it again. So I like to add odd music to my blogs for that reason.

So I had a huge bag from Victoria Secret filled up with products that I have moved with me from Disney to Vince's to back here and I added to it when I got back from London today so let's begin:

Johnson's Baby Powder with Aloe & Vitamin E Pure Cornstarch - 15 oz. I tend to get sweaty quite quickly when working out so I put on powder before a very heavy work out session or run. And honestly? When it's really hot outside I will use this then too. Under arms, under boobs, and down there. It just happens. However, I hate baby powder scent so if anyone knows how to get a smooth cornstarch powder without the baby powder smell PLEASE let me know.

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash - I actually have a regular size and a travel size of this in my empties bag. I love this stuff. It just really help keep the oil off of my face and it cleanses so beautifully. It really does froth which is amazing. It gets leftover dirt, make-up, and oils that make-up wipes leave in nooks and crannies of your face. I have repurchased already. I have this sent to me from Origins and I have it on auto buy because I use this so much and though I will try different things this is my holy grail.

EOS Pomegranate Raspberry Shave Cream - Ok I knew EOS did shaving cream but I had never tried it. +Jessica  totally recommended it to me and I fell in love! I have seriously dry skin on my calves but this helps it! I do not get razor burn. And the pomegranate raspberry smell is amazing! I already bought another thing of this one. I also bought the Vanilla one as well this time. This is slightly more expensive than regular shave gel put I promise it's worth the extra moisture!

Mrs. Meyers Liquid Hand Soap in Apple - I love this as a hand soap after doing dishes and cleaning. I have it at work as well for me. It doesn't leave my hands dry and it makes them soft and it's a more natural product so I love it for that reason too. I am repurchasing it. I am going to get the Lemon Verbena scent since Vince has me stuck on Mrs. Meyer's Lemon Verbena scent at the moment.

Lush's Sympathy for Skin - This stuff is amazing! It's a wonderful lotion! It smells heavenly with notes of banana, vanilla and sandalwood. It's expensive but very much worth it. A little goes a long way because I purchased this in June and it took me until December to finish it. I really love it and I'll be repurchasing it.

Lush's Big Shampoo - Now just hold your horses, yes you can make this shampoo go a long way. Here recently however, I haven't been washing my hair every day and I like to get the dry shampoo out of my hair and yes Big Shampoo does do that for me. And also my boyfriend has been dipping into it. This is why normally this would last me 4 months has barely lasted two! He uses it a lot more than I do but I got to finish it up because he now how his own container! (Yes I repurchased it, as long as they make this it will always be on my buying list.)

Visine Tired Eye Relief - I used this a lot in November more than December. I will be honest when you are slightly upset and you don't get much sleep coffee and tea just doesn't do for you to be good with your eyes and this saved me a lot. I finished it up in Disney World when we were up for more than 18 hours and my eyes would grow tired with barely any sleep. I may repurchase again if I believe I will need them.

Nostrilla - Not one, not two, not three but four empty bottles of Nostrilla. I did have a cold during December so it explains why I had so many of these. I've talked about this before and nothing has changed. One in the car, one at work, one in the backpack, one in the purse and one beside my bed. It's the fastest nasal relief I have ever found. I know I repurchased this because I have four boxes of it in in my closet already.

Maybelline The Falsie Volume Express Waterproof - I love this mascara. It doesn't clump. The wand flares out the lashes beautifully. At the end of the day I do not have dark shadow on my face. It curls my lashes and it's a drugstore buy. I love it and have already repurchased.

Twilight Venom Lip Stain - Back before the company was sold to bigger make-up companies I bought this. I used it up then and I bought some more later on. I found it and I have used it up as a great bottom later lip color for red lips.It even plumps up your lips for an amazing swak.  I will be repurchasing it.

NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation - I will always remember the first day I felt this powder.
I flipped out in Ulta because it was so velvet and soft. It feels so light weight and it wears amazingly. And I've already purchased it again.

Origins VitaZing SPF 15 Energy-boosting Moisturizer - I wasn't sure about this product. The first time I used it I broke out afterwards. I stopped using it. And I decided a little bit later on to use it again since it had SPF in it. And I haven't broke out since so I am thinking it might have been hormonal break out which I sometimes really do get. I don't know if I will repurchase. I want to explore some other daytime moisturizers.

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk and Cottage Cheese - There actually is a difference between these two. Cottage Cheese has a shimmer in it. Ulta was actually out of Milk when I went to go repurchase and so I got Cottage Cheese. I love both now! Milk is great for day wear and Cottage Cheese is just perfect for night wear! I use these for my inner corner eye liner. I will be purchasing both again!

Secret Clinical Strength Sport Marathon Fresh Deodorant - Do not get this confused with the orange packaging for Stress Reponse the scents are not the same! To me that is a huge deal about the smell. I love the smell of Marathon Fresh. It seriously last through 4 hours of samba dancing, work, and shopping. And if that isn't enough proof. 24 hour protection at Disney in June. That should clear things up for you. Yes I have repurchased.

MIYU Teas & Beauty De-Stress Mi Beauty Essence - I received this in Birchbox and it came with beauty tea. The tea was amazing and I ordered it. And then this stuff... O.M.G. I love it. It's just a mist that will wake you up and make you face just blossom. The scent isn't very lasting which is great because do you really want your cheeks to smell like mint? I will be purchasing the big bottle of this. But seriously if you don't want the mist at least get the tea!

CVS Baby Wash - I use this to wash my brushes. I use this with Dawn Dish-washing Detergent. The Dawn gets rid of the germs and the baby wash leaves the brushes soft and fluffy. Pretty sure I've already purchased.

Axe Anarchy for Her - Not going to lie I use this for body spray and room spray. Especially if someone has been smoking near me. This is will mask that smell instantly. I hate the smell of smoke and this knocks it out in a heartbeat. I also love it when I have been working out. I now have Anarchy II but I think I will return to back to the original after using Anarchy II up because II doesn't smell as good as the original.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes Travel Size - Even though I love up & up I like to try others. These were good but they are not cheap. They also barely get waterproof make-up. They were a travel size steal so I got them for Disney. They were nothing great except they were compact and got off make-up that wasn't water proof.

Deva Curl System - I received packets of this to try in my Birchbox and initially hated how it smelled. The shampoo smells like a God-awful perm. The condition got a little better. The gel smells like fruit loops. But the results were priceless. I had perfect curls with this system. So yeah I went and bought the whole thing and have used it up. My whole household used it (four girls all under 25). We all have different kinds of hair. Mine is wavy, Carolina's is wavy, Lillian's is straight, and Mary Ann's is curly. We all seen amazing results. I've learned that the smell is just worth it. I will be repurchasing.

Bath and Body Works Beautiful Day Body Mist - I love this stuff. I am so glad it is a signature collection because it smells so good. I cannot wait to repurchase this! Below is its description.
Top Notes: Sun-kissed Apple, Dewy Pear, Sparkling Cassis
Mid Notes: Wild Daisies, Lily of the Valley, Fresh Pink Peony
Dry Notes: White Peach, Blonde Woods, Cream

up & up Make Up Removing Towelettes - Not one, not two, not three, not even four... FIVE of these are empty in this bag. Now this is actually what started my collection of empties in June so yeah they have built up. Already repurchased. Stressing how awesome these things are!!! (Make sure to get the blue!)

Maybelline Color Tattoo by Eye Studio in Bad to the Bronze - I got through these a good bit too. I wear it sometimes a base when I know I am going to wear neutrals for the day. Or if I am just going somewhere quick on my lazy days and I don't feel like putting on a whole lot of make up foundation, powder, this, and mascara is what gets it done. Yep, repurchasing!

Olay Daily Fresh Effects BB Cream - I personally feel like it should be a law for all make-up to smell like this one does. It's like an apple scent meets sunscreen. Which it does have an SPF in it! No it doesn't give great coverage but I am not looking for that in this. I love this stuff and I definitely repurchasing it.

Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple - Got this in my Ipsy bag and OMG. I love the packaging for this lip balm. I loved this color. I do wish the top was slightly smaller because I feel a lip balm should not be bigger than a tube of lipstick. That's my only complain. It is such a good color and you can go drinking and the color is not going to leave your lips for the straw! I highly recommend this! Repurchasing because I miss it tons!

2 Revlon Colorstay - Best drugstore foundation ever. I am using the Stay Fabulous by Covergirl but it dries my skin out. This does not so I will be going back to my Revlon as soon as I finish the Stay Fabulous by Covergirl.

Fortune Cookie Soap This Year Will Be Ours Oogie Boogie OCD Hand Sanitizer  - Just repurchased since it hasn't been available. I love this stuff. I love the fake bug in it. It's a spider and it looks freaking real which kept my cousin out of it. It did not however keep my boyfriend and brother out of it. I love their hand sanitizer. Great to have in the car when you can't get to the one attached to your purse.

While I was emptying the bag all of these were in I came across three objects that apparently Miss Rain wanted me to review...

Chips Ahoy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Family Size - As she told me when I asked her what people should know about these, "They are good. They are like chomp cookies but soft." I asked her were we going to buy them again. "Yes!"

Mr. Bubbles Bubble Bath - "It makes lots of bubbles, bubbles," from the four year old herself. And when asked if we were going to repurchase it. "No I like yours and Uncle Vinny's bubble stuff better." (Awesome I've turned a four year old into a Lushie.)

GoGo Squeeze Apple Cinnamon Organic - She said, "It is good. I like it when riding and getting other food." And are we going to repurchase it? "Yes."

I'm pretty sure she put these in the bag while at Disney and she thought this was like a trash bag for me so I didn't mind doing a mini Rain review.

Empties I didn't even finish or just used to use up:

The Body Shop Body Butter Satsuma - I know the rants are coming but I HATED this! Every YouTuber seems to love this smell and I despise it. I thought when I picked up in Ulta it was because I had been smelling perfume that it didn't smell good. Most of them say it smells "fresh and clean" I don't want to really know how this smells fresh and clean to them. To me it smelled almost like a bar. I didn't even finish it.

Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips - No I did not buy this. I got a sample size of it in my Birchbox before I unsubscribed to Birchbox. I was first thrown off at the name. Nipple Balm? I read the back of it and thought it was odd that you can use if for, "lips, nipples, cuticles, calluses, sunburns, baby rashes, and scars." I wouldn't! First it stinks. Second it dried out my lips opposite of what it was suppose to do! I really do not like this at all.
