June 2018: Empties & Tossed Report

Empties time! Doing this helps me shop for later but also makes me realize what a freakin' hoarder I am! Ugh! Anyway, let me show you what I finished up this month:

Out of the 23 items that I used, there are some real winners in here! The NYC Smooth Skin Parfait Matte BB Cream has long been discontinued, but I found a few bottles online. They were cheap, pigmented, and so matte you didn't need a finishing powder. Pour out a lil acetone for my lost BB cream, would you? Pore Fessional by Benefit is really the only primer for me - I vow to stop experimenting with buying others. Sulwhasoo Emulsion is awesome but too $ for me. Ulta Mask Removing Cloths are awesome but unnecessary to repurchase. Orly Prelude to a Kiss has also been discontinued, so I keep mixing older bottles together to help keep it alive. Sugar Bear Hair Vitamins fall in the same category as Sulwhasoo. LUSH Twilight Shower Gel is a must-have for me (and my Mom). John Freida Brilliant Brunette Treatment is also a constant re-purchase. Kat Von D Saint perfume is also a constant re-purchase since my boyfriend loves it. Benefit Pore Fessional Makeup has also been discontinued but dang it, I loved that stuff.

I only used up 5 samples this month - I will try to do better in July. I'll be travelling a lot, so I should empty out a few more packets. The Sulwhasoo Radiance Energy Mask continues to be amazing, but nothing else here is worthy of a re-purchase.

Random collection of skincare products that I found in an old travel bag. Got to throw those out!

As usual, I ran into some items that just needed to get thrown away! The Hard Candy Matte Defense Serum is awful - I am sorry I ever blogged about it! My Purito Vitamin C Serum oxidized and needs to go, but I do love it so I repurchased samples which I think will live a little longer. The First Aid Beauty Moisturizer/Primer product is slimy and awful. My Bad Gal Bang needed to get tossed, as did those lippies. Phew.

Time for the totals!

Month of June:

Totals: 23 items, full or deluxe sized / 5 packets or samples / 12 items thrown out

Empties Report Year to Date: 113 items / 69 packets
Thrown out Year to Date: 91 items
