March 2014 Empties

As I have mentioned before, I hate empties piling up around the place. I am no neat freak, but I hate those empty containers lying around, crashing about etc. so I am doing this blog post before the end of March. So I might have two "Empties" posts in April. I am sure you won't mind. I am still fiddling with the settings on my camera, so I apologize for the "yellow" hue. I have 8 empties for you today. In no particular order:

1. Wen by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner - I love the way this detangles my hair and makes it shiny and soft. Since I signed up for a regular mail delivery, I have a ton of this stuff in my cupboard. I am not sure if this product is contributing to some nasty split ends that I have been plagued with over the past several months, but I seemed to have the problem more under control before I started using this all of the time.

2.  Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair - I have a million tiny bottles like this kicking around. I swear I get a free one whenever I buy something at the Estee Lauder counter. This was the first bottle that I finished. Can't say I noticed that it did anything for my skin. I got 30+ uses out of this little bottle. I mostly targeted specific areas of my face for it but sometimes I used it all over.

3. Tarte Clean Slate 360 Creaseless 12-hr Smoothing Eye Primer - I already did a review on my blog on this awhile ago. I have had the same tube for a year and a half and I use it pretty much every day. Crazy! Did I get my money's worth? Hell yes. Already repurchased.

4. Origins Plantscription - This previously made my blog list of the Top 10 products that I can not live without. I still feel the same way about this product. Will be repurchasing a.s.a.p.!

5. Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara - Another of my holy grails. The only mascara that I have ever found that does not smudge on me when I wear glasses. I have gone through at least 5 or 6 of these to date and I will be repurchasing another one stat!

6. Lush Rock Star Soap - I thought it would be weird to post this to my empties when I had nothing left to show you. Seeing as I maybe have another day or two left of this, I thought I would show it while I had some evidence of it's existence. I love the smell of this soap. It makes me happy. My husband doesn't like it so much. It smells of Edinburgh Rock Candy to me. I swear the smell used to be more powerful though in previous bars I had. After I used it, my bathroom would smell of the stuff for a day or two. No, you can barely tell it was used. My husband also doesn't complain anymore. It's because he can't smell it anymore! My Mom, however, told me I smelt very nice today when I went to visit her after my shower....

7. Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream - I didn't notice that this eye cream did anything for my dark circles. I have a full review on this elsewhere on my blog. It was refreshing though. I tried to use it religiously but never did for more than a few weeks at a time. Once the jar is opened, the product is only supposed to be good for 6 months. That is true! It got really gooey and not spreadable near the end . There is a little left at the bottom but it is no longer any good. I will not likely repurchase.

8. Boscia Thermal Black Cleanser - This makes my skin super soft. It neither lathers nor reduces my blemishes much. I don't think I will repurchase. Full review of this on my blog.

So that's it! I have some pan porn coming (oh that didn't sound good) and hopefully a Back to MAC soon to show you. Also, I am feverishly trying to use my Naked 3 palette so I can do a review soon.


  1. Hi, what flavor is this rock star soap as this have many different ones and I cannot tell based on the color in the picture you provided. Thanks so much keep up the good work.

    1. This one smells like candy. It's hard to explain. The smell is not sickly sweet. It's a bit like cotton candy and cream soda. Love it!

  2. Thanks is it the plain old rock star soap that is pink they have over 15 bar soaps on their website. I tried the EOS shave lotion, Burts BeeLotion, and finally found the Olivia Care Hand soap my boyfriend loves the smell Thanks for the advice :)

    1. Glad you like those products! It's the plain old rock star soap that I use. Hope that helps!
