May 2013 Empties!

This past month I feel like I went through alot of products. I'm pretty happy with that as I have more room to shop for more things! Well.... not really. I gotta cut down on my spending, and I may actually do another spending ban. Anyways, onto what I used up in May!

The only body care product I used up is the Dylan's Candy Bar Body Smootie Lotion in the Chocolate Cupcake scent. I know ages ago I talked about the body scrub from this line in the same scent that I loved. I liked this lotion too. It wasn't super amazing, but it was a basic body lotion that smelled really good. This line of products was sold at Sephora quite a while ago and I still have a few other body products and lip balms to use up. Unfortunately, they don't make these products anymore.

I have a funny story about this next product, the Eshu Face Wash. When I was browsing the Sephora website as I frequently do, I came across this brand and bought this face wash. Well, once I got it in the mail, my mom told me that this was a men's skincare brand! I actually had to laugh, but I didn't mind this. It kinda reminded me of Dermalogica's Special Cleansing Gel with how it smelled. 

Next, I used up Neutrogena's Fresh Foaming Cleanser. I loved this! I used it in the morning and it made my face feel so clean and happy, but didn't dry it out. I'd probably buy it again once I use up what I have in my stash.

Finally for skincare, I used up The Body Shop Aloe Eye Defense. I'm pretty much obsessed with this eye cream. It's a mix between a cream and a gel, and it's perfect for in the morning and your eyes are all puffy and red. This helps to calm that down and make my eye area feel nice and soothed. Not sure if I have another backup of this or not, but once I use up my other morning eye creams, I'll definitely repurchase!

I finally used some makeup products! It's about time The Body Shop's Mineral Foundation in the shade 01 is empty! I'm not even sure how long I've been using this little jar, but it's lasted me ages. I do like this powder foundation and the color matches me pretty well. I know I've mentioned before how fair I am, so when I find a color that matches my skin, I tend to buy quite a few backups. I probably have three or four backups of this and I'm currently using bareMinerals, so I'm set with mineral foundation for quite a while.

I'm also parting with my most favorite mascara ever, bareMinerals Flawless Definition. I did a full review of this a while ago here, so I won't go into details about how much I love this. I will say that I was going through a box of makeup I have, and I discovered I had another one of these! I got so excited, but I have tons of mascaras to go through, so I'm waiting to open it up.

These are the last products I used up! I finally used up my Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream. This was the best leave-in conditioner and I do have a backup of this. I'm currently using a product from Aussie that I featured in my May favorites, so I'll go back to this once I use up the Aussie product. I also did a blog post reviewing this conditioner here if you want more info on it.

I also used up the Suave Dry Shampoo. I did a review on this and I didn't particularly like it, but I didn't hate it either. It made my hair look less oily, but it still felt dirty, which I didn't like.

I wasn't sure if you guys care about the vitamins I take, but I used up the Nature Made Multi For Her vitamins. Nothing special about these, I just like to think I'm doing myself some good by taking my vitamins.

That's everything! Like I said, I think I went through quite a bit, and I'm very happy I actually used up makeup! I think next month should be a good month as well with empties.

What did you use up in May?


  1. I have the toner from the same line of neutrogena and I'm not a huge fan, I don't feel like my skin is cleaner after use. I do want to try that garnier leave in!

    1. I've never tried the toner before, but if I see it I'll avoid it since you don't like it! Definitely try the Garnier conditioner! It's really amazing and inexpensive if you get it at Walmart.

  2. I love the Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser, good cleansing with out feeling dry afterwards. Gotta add that leave in conditioner to my wish list :)

    1. It's a pretty nice cleanser! Good to know I'm having an influence with this conditioner ;) haha, it's great though honestly


Thank you for all your comments! I'll reply back as soon as I can :)
