I forgot I had these pictures saved on my computer. I took them a while back to prepare for this empties post but then I kept forgetting to write the blog post! I'm horrible, I know.
Well, for the month of September, I didn't have that many empties. And NO makeup empties! Ugh! I'm really trying to finish some makeup up! I just can't. So weird.
Anyway, here is what I did finish up in September:
|September 2011 Empties|
Nice little array of products used up in September. But the closest thing to makeup was the Blistex lip balm! Not good enough.
Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterian Deep Cleansing Hand Soap in Betty Parfait
Dove Go Fresh Revive Body Wash in Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena Scent
Aussie Instant Freeze Hair Spray Maximum Hold
Pantene Pro-V Style Curl Defining Scrunching Mousse Extra Strong Hold
Blistex Five Star Lip Protection
|Aussie Instant Freeze Hair Spray Maximum Hold|
8.5 fl oz (251 mL)
Such good stuff! Talk about instant freeze! This does hold very well. But it will leave your hair stiff and crunchy. If you don't like that, this is not for you. I rarely wear my naturally curly hair down so I don't use this to spray all over my entire head. I mainly use this to tame flyaways and that it is good for. The scent of this is really nice too.
|Dove Go Fresh Revive Body Wash|
Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena Scent
24 fl oz (710 mL)
This is probably THE BEST body wash I have ever used! No joke! I have really dry skin on my arms and legs and this is like bathing in lotion. The formula is so thick and lotion like. Of course the scent is fabulous but I love how this feels on my skin while I'm taking a shower. Even after the shower, my skin did feel smoother. A little bit of this body wash went such a long way. I love this. I really enjoy the "nutrium moisture" it contains and I plan on repurchasing this--but I might try another scent just for fun.
|Pantene Pro-V Style |
Curl Defining Scrunching Mousse Extra Strong Hold
6.6 oz (187 g)
Yet again another product that I just loved! Like I mentioned before, I have naturally curly hair and I never wear it lose because it is so out of control! This mousse helped to tame the frizz and define the curl. I would shower at night, air dry my hair, than add some of this before my hair was completely dry. I would then sleep with my hair lose and in the morning, my hair was full and bouncy and soft. I hate my curly hair because using a ton of product in it makes it crunchy. Doing it this way, I got defined curls and minimum frizz all the while it remained touchable. Loved it!
|Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial|
Deep Cleansing Hand Soap in Betty Parfait
8 fl oz (236 mL)
You guys know me by now and know how much I love B&BW! This seasonal item is no different. I got this on clearance for $2! Great deal! I believe this is a scent they offered around Mother's Day. It smells so so good. Very berry like! I loved washing my hands with this--the sweet-tart and the girls did too! That's a plus! It contains "an exclusive blend of moisturizing honey, coconut milk and olive fruit extracts to help nourish and soften skin." Perfection! And it also contains exfoliating microspheres. Even better.
|Blistex Five Star Lip Protection|
.15 oz (4.25 g)
But here are some notes on it:
(The following information was taken from HERE.)
- Glycerin holds in moisture in dry air
- Candelilla helps form a wind barrier
- Wheat Germ Oil provides moisure relief for heat-stressed lips
- Calendula Oil soothes cold-chapped lips
- SPF30 provides UVA/UVB sun-protection
This one was just OK for me. I mean, it did work on keeping my lips soft and flake free but the scent and flavor were too strong for me. I like scented items but not so much for my lips. I don't like when the flavors of lip products mix with the flavors of what I'm eating or drinking. Picky? Maybe. But that's always been me. So, no, I don't think I will repurchase this one.
OK, my dears, that is all for now. I seriously do hope that I will have more makeup empties to share with you all for the month of October and I swear I will do my best to post my October favorites and empties at the end of the month--not two weeks into November!
