Empties #21

I swear I'm not drinking mouthwash. Hey Tom's of Maine, please send me a year's supply. Invisalign is making me obsessed with a clean mouth.

Here are all of the beauty and hygiene products I finished in October & November:

beauty empties

Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks (24ct)
These are super convenient to clean-up mascara mishaps. I'm hoping these aren't becoming discontinued; I can't find them in-store. I purchased a few packages on eBay!

Assured Cotton Rounds (100ct)
These were very thin and left a lot of lint/cotton behind. I'll stick with Swisspers!

Bath & Body Works Sunflower Citrus Anti-bacterial Hand Gel
This product was effective. I liked the very very-citrus scent.

November Favorites

Favorites posts/videos discuss the products (and other misc things) you loved for that month. The products can either be purchased that month or (old) 'rediscovered' items. Favorites are published at the end of the current month or at the beginning of the following month.

cocoluxe, morrocanoil, kleenex


Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Pencil
I received this in my Birchbox. I assumed this was a sample - but it's actually full size; the product size is equivalent to ABH Brow Wiz. This taupe color matches me surprisingly well. The tiny, precise point is so easy to work with. I've been reaching for this over NYX Microbrow and ABH Brow Wiz.

CocoLuxe Organic Coconut Oil Squeeze Tube
I went on a cruise the week of Thanksgiving. I knew coconut oil had to come with me, but I had no idea how to safely travel with it. After a quick Google search, I discovered CocoLuxe. I'll admit $11.99 for 3.4oz is a total rip-off; (I'm used to purchasing 16oz for under $9.) The convenience of the squeeze tube and knowing it wasn't going to leak all in my suitcase was totally worth the price. (You can buy it here.)

ColourPop Smoke N Whistles Super Shock Cheek
This formula is so unique - it's sort of bouncy; it's somewhat cream-like but dries to a powder. I really like how shimmery this highlight is. On the downside, the color is slightly too dark for me, I'll probably be back for a few more colors soon.

Maybelline Volum'Express The Rocket Mascara
This is hands-down my favorite mascara of all-time. I strayed away from it for awhile (to use up some high-end beauty box samples). Every time I open a new tube, I can't believe I took a break from it.

Empties #20

It's time for another round of empties! In August, I started Invisalign - which means I'm brushing and flossing a whole lot more. You'll be seeing a lot more oral care products from me. Here are all of the products I've finished in August & September:

ACT Braces Care Clean Mint Mouthwash
This was effective but I prefer the ACT mouthwash mentioned in my last empties post.

AIM Precision Floss Picks (50 ct)
These were incredibly flimsy and difficult to work with. Not a fan.

AmLactin Foot Cream with Alpha Hydroxy Acid
I liked this at first but it just became way too chemically for me. I prefer coconut oil or other natural solutions.
