September 2016 Empties Report!

Happy Friday!

To end this week, even though it's a smidge late, I have my monthly empties report for you! Since this is only my second month with this feature, the Empties Report is basically showing you what I used up this month and letting you know if I would re-purchase it. Fun, right?

Group shot!

I have quite a few to review, so I separated them into body, face, nails, and hair. Let's go!

Hair:

LUSH Cosmetics Cynthia Sylvia Stout:
     LUSH orders always include generous samples and I love trying new things. With that said, one sample of a shampoo isn't really enough to make a decision. This shampoo smelled heady, lovely, and beer-like, so I am not sure I'd take the chance to try again. Not really my thing!

Marc Anthony Hydrating Coconut Deep Nourishing Conditioning Treatment:
     Subscription boxes often include hair mask type items, and with long, thick, constantly dry hair, I love to receive them. This one smells amazing, but the smell was honestly the best part. I would not repurchase this.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Overnight Perfector:
     HOLY GRAIL! I love this stuff. I received the LP Overnight Perfector in the Sephora PLAY! box and loved it so much that I swapped for a second one. You use this at night after you wash your hair. Spread through your damp hair (I focused on the ends) and go to bed. Wake up with the softest hair ever. Lovveeee!!!!!

Body/shower:

Ayres Body Polish: 
     I received this as a swap and, first things first, it smells like a tropical vacation. I would not go out of my way to re-purchase this, but I did enjoy it. It is a cream based scrub with little blue scrubbies that do seem to dissolve (unlike those nasty plastic beads) and does smell amazing.

Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion: 
     I love this stuff! If you have not tried the luxe indulgence of an in-shower body lotion, you must try it! After you clean your body, apply this thick cream and give it a quick rinse before you hop out. It eliminates the need for body lotion after the shower. This has a thick texture and clean smell, so I really enjoy it. LUSH makes a few that are super duper expensive, so I tried this and do love it. I will re-purchase again and again!

Face:

Benefit Roller Lash:
   Roller Lash is a fairly new Benefit formula that already has cult status. I am not surprised because it is amaaazing. It makes my lashes super long and doesn't flake at all. I use this AND my L'Oreal Miss Manga together and am constantly asked if my lashes are fake. Would I buy this again? YES! I already have!

dr. brandt PoreDermaBrasion: 
     I love the dr.brandt line, so I was really excited to swap for this and try it. I don't use scrubby face products often since I do have sensitive skin that is prone to instant redness, but I did like this. I am not the best tester because I only use it on my nose area, so I wouldn't go out of my way to re-purchase this.

Korres Wild Rose Overnight Mask:
     Korres is another brand I adore! This came in a PLAY! box and I swapped for a second, too. This smells amazing, just like roses, and leaves you with plumped, gorgeous skin in the morning. Korres is often out of my price range, so I've picked up Garnier and Soap&Glory versions to try in the meantime.

LUSH Cosmetics 9 to 5 Cleansing Lotion: 
     I picked this up to try since I love LUSH, as you may have noticed, and this is supposed to be a signature product - easy to use and works well on everyone. Meeeeeh. It's nice, smells nice, but doesn't remove makeup, which is something I def need my cleanser to do. I love my Ultrabland and Let The Good Times Roll, so I will not re-purchase this one.

Nails:

Beauty Secrets Pure Acetone:
    Last but not least, the Beauty Secrets Pure Acetone is from Sallys, always on sale, and removes glitter like a dream. I buy this in bulk!

That wraps up this months empties. Did you like or dislike any of these items?

xoxo,
Lacey
