But I don't want to dwell on this, and instead I want to talk about all things beauty, which always makes me happy. Specifically, I wanted to go through my beauty empties. I love these kinds of posts because these are super duper thorough reviews.
I do empties a little bit differently. My list is HUGE, so I'm sharing just a few items from it. I've found that anything over 10 and people just scroll down without reading. I also don't take pics of the original, because while that's real life, makeup finger prints and shower crud just aren't appetizing. But that's just me.
Here's what to buy and what to skip (going sort of clockwise-ish):
Better Than Sex Mascara
--Let it be known, that I love drugstore mascaras something fierce, but sometimes I love a good pricey one too. And this one is excellent. It will be a while before I buy this one again (so many mascaras, so little time), but I will get it again one day.
Simple Cleansing Wipes
--I shared this brand years ago on here when they first started to be a hit in the States. I like these wipes, but they aren't a fave. I think they came in a blogger pr package.
Venus Travel Razor
--I'm pretty sure I was sent this a while ago, but I finally used it up. I loved these and have purchased more. I have another one that has shaving gel inside of it that I'll share next time.
Olay Body Wash
--What more can I say? I liked it. I purchased a different scent that I like better, but this one was good. I love Olay products and have for years.
Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream
--I used this super thick cream as a facial moisturizer. I like the results, but don't care for anything rose scented. I know, I know. I wouldn't repurchase because of that, but it's good overall.
Yes, I'm putting the same pic again so you don't have to scroll back up. ;)
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
--Y'all, I swear I don't wear expensive mascaras all the time. Ignore Exhibits A and B of this post. ;) I really love the length on this mascara. It will be another one that I will repurchase at some point, but not any time soon.
Crest Whitestripes Supreme Whitening
--Y'all know I LOVE ME SOME WHITE TEETH. I'm kind of obsessed with having the whitest teeth in all the land. I found these at Amazon, and it was love at first strip. They make my teeth a little sensitive, but beauty is pain. I sound crazy. Moving on...
Heimish All Clean Balm
--Just in case you missed my other 3 posts about it, I am a cleansing balm fanatic!! This one was affordable and had lovely packaging. And it worked, did I mention that? I'd buy it again, but probably wouldn't because of the cleanser from Walmart I shared last week.
NYX Hydra Touch Primer
--All my dry skin girls say, "Yeahhh!" Okay, just me? This primer was okay, kinda nothing special, but it smelled good! And I think it was blue. I think I imagined that. Wouldn't buy again.
Acure Smoothing Shampoo
--This smelled SO DANG GOOD (coconuts, if memory serves) and it worked well too. Sometimes I want this wavy, frizzy mess straight and this worked. This was a PR sample, but I'd snatch it right on up again.
