July, August and September 2016 Empties

It's time to recycle my empties and get them out of here. Three months of them. Enough is enough. Let's get into it.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 2.0 -  Another one bites the dust. It's my fave and I keep going back to it. Nothing compares. Already repurchased a bottle.

L'Occitane Dry Skin Foot Cream - This stuff is fantastic. Went through another travel sized tube and I have repurchased the full regular sized version. (review here)

Origins Eye Doctor - Gone through a million of these. Still looking for something a bit better that addresses the dark circle issue more but otherwise this is the best I have found. (review here)

A La Maison de Provence Sweet Almond Liquid Soap - I really liked this hand wash so I am going to mention it here. Great ingredients. Bought it at Marshalls.

Deep Steep Strawberry Hand Wash - This was also quite good. Also bought at Marshalls.

First Aid Beauty (FAB) Facial Radiance Pads - I meant to do a review on these but I haven't gotten around to it. They weren't bad. I felt they made a difference. They are supposed to exfoliate, tone and brighten. I would say they did some of each of those things. I can't say that they made such a huge difference that I had to rush out and buy more, but I would consider buying them again.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask - Hands down my favourite nonlipstick lip product ever....I am not sure if this was maybe my fifth tube? Bite Beauty has improved the packaging big time so it doesn't flake and shred all over the place anymore. Already repurchased. (review here)

Beautyblender - This was my second beauty blender. It's lost it's bounce and it feels kind of gross on the bottom despite my frequent washings of it. New one already repurchased. Can't live without this now. (review here)
Equate Daily Moisturizing Lotion - I have had this lotion forever. I am not sure if they even sell it anymore. It had to go. Taking up precious cupboard space. It wasn't bad but had petrolatum in it if you care about such things. I do. Not likely to repurchase.

Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover - Doesn't look like I have ever done a review on this product. You aren't missing much. It's greasy and just ok at removing makeup. I got this travel bottle in a gift with purchase.

Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara - What?! I haven't done a review on this mascara either. Sheesh, I have really dropped the ball big time. I will make this short and sweet. The wand was enormous and nearly poked my eye out on a few occasions. The formula was a bit dry, it flaked slightly and would smudge here and there. Volume? Not much. Length? Not happening. Total dud.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb - This is one of my favourite Bite lip colours. Colour is gorgeous. Already repurchased. I haven't done a review or swatch for you on this one either. I will for sure do that with my new one soon.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - People rave about this mascara but it has never excited me. The brush is ridiculously huge. I find the formula dry. I can't seem to get much volume nor length out of this one. I even tried using a disposable mascara wand to see if it was just the big wand that was the problem. Nope, same issues. This tube was part of some Too Faced set I got a awhile back. (review here)

Clinique Superbalm 16 Black Honey - This was a small sample I got in a gift with purchase many moons ago. I finally busted it out and ended up really liking it. I would repurchase but I'm working on paring down my lip product collection at the moment and don't need another gloss. (review here)

Murad Renewing Eye Cream - I got this in a set of Murad products last Christmas. People love this product but I didn't dig it. It was alright but it did nothing for my dark circles and could burn a tad if it got into your eye. I decided to finish it off but it lasted a long time for a little tube. (review here)

L'Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream - This is a great hand cream. It feels luxurious and smells great in my opinion. Great to throw in your purse. I would highly recommend it. (review here)

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer in 02 Light Medium - Wow, I have gone through countless numbers of these and I have never done a full review. I really like this concealer because it is easy to use and blends in well with my Estee Lauder foundation. Just don't use it on your under eye area.

Living Proof. Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Cream - If you don't have it, please go and get it now. Already repurchased. (review here)

Eos Hand Lotion in Fresh Flowers - Best for purse hand lotion. Packaging is great for on the go and works very well. I have gone through many and will go through many more. Fresh flowers is my scent of choice out of the three available. (review here)

I have a bunch of odds and ends coming up plus a palette I have been promising to review for months. Let's hope it's still relevant.
