Monthly Empties: July, August & September 2015

Hello everyone!

It sure has been a while since I’ve done a Monthly Empties post! I’ve been meaning to post them monthly, but the months end and I don’t take pictures, and three months later here we are with a HUGE pile.

I’ll do my best to keep this short so it’s not too long a post.

Legend:
Green light - loved it = Loved it!
Orange light - it's okay = It’s okay.
Red light - dislike = Dislike!
No rating = No rating.

July 2015

monthly empties july 2015

Shiseido – Facial Cottons Green light - loved it LOVE THESE!

Arbonne – FC5 Exfoliating New Cell Scrub Green light - loved it This scrub works really well without being too rough.

Nivea – In-Shower Body Lotion Red light - dislike I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to rinse this or not – it does not say on the foil packet. It also did not smell good, I found it smelled very plastic-y.

Arbonne – RE9 Hydrating Body Lotion Green light - loved it This body lotion is VERY hydrating! I did find it a bit too heavy for the summer, but it will be perfect for the dry winter months.

Arbonne – FC5 Nourishing Daily Shampoo & Conditioner Green light - loved it No other hair products have made my hair feel as soft as it does with this duo.

THEFACESHOP – Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Wipes Red light - dislike I did not like these at all, they left a residue behind that left my face sticky. So I used them when I applied my makeup to clean my hands (when I got makeup on them).

Hempz – Pomegranate Herbal Body Moisturizer Green light - loved it I had this at work for my hands and I loved it. It left my hands feeling soft and smooth and smelled really good.

Paula’s Choice – 2% BHA Liquid Green light - loved it I’ve been moving away from physical exfoliants, and this is a great chemical exfoliant. Worked really well.

Arbonne – FC5 Purifying Cleanser + Toner Green light - loved it This cleanser works great for me and does not leave my face dry and tight.

Clarins – HydraQuench Cream-Gel Green light - loved it This moisturized more than I thought it would, and at the same time did not leave my skin oily and greasy. It also had a very light and fresh scent. Love it!

Marcelle – 8 in 1 Power Serum Green light - loved it I bought this after seeing it on Sarah’s blog (Workaday Beauty). It was great and left my skin feeling smooth.

Marcelle – Eye Contour Cream Green light - loved it This worked really well at moisturizing my eye area.

Arbonne – FC5 Invigorating Body Cleanser Green light - loved it This is a moisturizing body cleanser, which is the kind I love, and it works really well.

Beauty Secrets – Pure Acetone Green light - loved it I buy this at Sally’s and it’s perfect for removing my nail polish, and cleaning up my cuticles when I do my nails.

dippity-do – Girls With Curls GelĂ©e Green light - loved it I won this along with the shampoo and condition that I finished back in May. I honestly did not expect this to like this product, but it worked great and I loved it! It left a crunchy feeling like I love and need for my hair not to become a poofy mess.

September 2015

Shiseido – Facial Cottons Green light - loved it Yes, them again! 🙂

BiorĂ© – Nose Strip Green light - loved it Isn’t it just satisfying to peel these off and see all the gunk stuck on them?!?

Etude House – Kissful Lip Care in Cherry Green light - loved it I meant to do a review on this lip balm but never got around to it – if only you knew how often that happens… Anywho, it added a light tint to my lips and moisturized them very well. I loved it.

EcoTools – Pure Complexion Facial Sponge for Sensitive Skin Green light - loved it Technically this sponge is still good, but it’s been so long since I’ve used it that I just prefer to start with a new one. I really liked this sponge though, it did a great job.

Elizabeth Arden – PREVAGE Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum Orange light - it's okay I got this in my Summer 2015 Luxe Box. It might be small, but it lasted at least 4 weeks. However, I did not notice any difference with my eye area.

The Body Shop – Fuji Green Tea Body Scrub Green light - loved it I think this is the first body scrub I ever finish! I liked this one.

Odylique – Aloe Vera Bodywash & Gentle Herb Shampoo Green light - loved it Both products were really good.

Rocia – Face Care Products Orange light - it's okay These didn’t quite work out for me.


Phew! Did you stick around for all of that?!? Have you tried any of these products?
