End-of-Year Empties

empties-face-dec-2015

I really didn’t get through as many products as I’d hoped to this year – I’m hoping 2016 will be better! Here are my final empties for the year:

empties-face-dec-2015

Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar – I used this for my Aztec Secret clay masks, but I’ve switched to citric acid instead to avoid the vinegar stink. I don’t think I’ll be rebuying this for a while.

Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ PA+++ Sunscreen – This is the old version, I’ve repurchased the newer, reformulated PA++++ version already. I love how light and non-greasy this is!

Nivea Repair and Protection Lip Balm – My trusty favourite lip balm. I have so many open tubes lying around my room.

Crop Gentle Cleansing Gel – I really like this foaming cleanser. It doesn’t strip your skin of oil, and I haven’t found the essential oils irritating on my skin either. I’ll be repurchasing this!

Banila Co Clean It Zero – I love this mineral oil-based cleansing balm for taking off heavy make-up. I have a bunch of little samples to go through, and I’d love to try the other varieties before going for a full-size tub.

Enbacci Vitis Vinifera Rejuvenating Gel Cleanser – This is a really nice, non-drying cleanser sample I received at the Bloggers United Australia event in Sydney earlier this year. I have a whole heap of other Enbacci samples I’m working through too!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume – This has been my emergency handbag perfume, and I’m sad to see the end of it… lucky I have a few more sample sprays from various subscription boxes! Perfume samples are definitely one of my most used items from subscriptions.

Models Prefer Multi-Purpose Sponge – This is a nice sponge that’s a similar texture to the Beauty Blenders that are really popular now (I have a bunch of those too!). I find the sponge shape a little harder to work with, but it’s handier and a lot cheaper, and easier to wash.

I didn’t actually get through that many products in June, and I don’t think I’m going to get through many in July either since I’m going on holidays! Here are my June empties:

April Empties

I haven’t done an empties post in a while after finishing off my Project Pan, but I’m back to collecting my trash in a bucket so I can take pretty photos at the end of the month. The life of a beauty blogger is sometimes indistinguishable from that of a weirdo freak cat lady… One of my beauty must-haves are …

Project Pan 91-100

project-pan-91-95

Woohoo! I finally finished my Project 100 Pan…about 2 years after I first started. I think I’m just going to do monthly empty posts from now on! 91. Paul Mitchell Shampoo Two Clarifying – This is one of my favourite shampoos of all time. I’m a bit of a hairy oily freak and this shampoo cleans my scalp so well …

Project 100 Pan: Empties 71-80

More empties! I’ve been powering through samples while I’ve been in Europe, but unfortunately I’ve been buying a lot too. How can I not – so many new products to try! But I do feel proud of the fact I’m actually using products up these days, instead of using 2/3 of a bottle then leaving it to rot away in …

Project 100 Pan: Empties 61-70

I’ve been hauling a bit while overseas – I brought a lot of products to use, but failed miserably at estimating how much I needed, and the things I would miss the most. So while I’m still aiming to rack up the empties, I’m giving myself a lot of slack in the new buys department. It’s definitely made me think …

Project 100 Pan: Empties 51-60

The end of my project pan is slowly coming into sight! Here are my latest empties: 51. Garnier Clean Sensitive 2-in-1 Gentle Makeup Remover – This is my favorite 2-phase makeup remover. It gets rid of waterproof makeup without leaving behind an uncomfortable greasy residue. The bottle is also great, with a secure flip-top lid and a perfectly sized dispensing …

Project 100 Pan: Empties 41-50

I’m halfway through getting 100 products in my attempt to get rid of all the half-used stuff in my life. Here are my latest 10 empties: Sportsgirl Butter Dream Body Butter – I’ve had this forever, and it’s really good for an under-$10 body cream, though not really rich enough for me to class it as a “body butter”. The …
