The last month of 2017! I went through a TON of stuff this month, makes me think this month was actually as long as it felt.
Alright y’all, let’s do this!
Body and Hair Care
Summers Eve Cleansing Wash: No, I will not be purchasing this. The cleansing wash actually throws off your bodies natural pH. A natural unscented soap is actually better for cleansing your “regions”.
Soft Soap Body Butter Body Wash: I will not repurchase this item, it is not CF. Smelt very nice though. Worked well.
Nexxus Promend Split End Mender: This was a hair cream. It is not CF, so I will not repurchase it. I did not notice any difference in my hair.
Fortune Cookie Soap “Black Pearl” Exfoliating Body Wash: I would not purchase this same scent, but I am very interested in trying other scents of their Exfoliating body wash. It truly is Exfoliating, but not too harsh.
Hask Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditioner *Samples*: I actually felt that these products made my hair greasy. Will not be purchasing.
Bite Agave Lip Masks *Samples*: up coming post discussing these lip masks samples!
Natural-Tox Carrot Sheet Mask: I actually really liked this mask, it made my skin feel soft and clean. For the weekish after I used it my skin was behaving itself! However, I don’t believe it is CF, until I find out I will not repurchase.
Ulta Beauty Pomegranate Defense Mask: I love this mask and did a whole post about it a whole back! Read it Here!
Soo Ae Donky Milk Skin Gel Mask: I actually can’t recall how I felt about this mask, but some how I acquired another one, so I may be able to fill you in at some point. I don’t believe it is CF though, so will not repurchase.
Soo Ae Collage Hydrogel Lipmask: This did nothing. It was hard to keep on and there were no results. Would not repurchase.
Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro-Gel Mask: This Mask, as well, did nothing. Would not purchase.
Huntington Homes Apple Wood Bonfire: This candle smelled really nice and was very inexpensive at Aldi’s. Might actually repurchase.
BBW Winter Candy Apple Wall Flower: I love this scent so much. But, ethically BBW is not CF. I am slowly working through my stash of wall flowers.
Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara: I was given this mascara by Influenster and really liked it. However, it is not CF so I will not be repurchasing it.
Girlactik Liquid Liner “Black”: I was hoping to love this liner but I did not. For some reason it just didn’t work for me. The tip was strange I thought and it wasn’t deep enough in color. Would not repurchase.
Anastasia Brow Wiz “Taupe”: Will of course always repurchase.
Kat Von D Ink Liner “Trooper”: I love this liner, I do prefer the tattoo liner though. Would still repurchase.
Benefit Boing Concealer *sample*: I wasn’t able to try it enough to get a decisive opinion. But, I don’t believe Benefit is CF. So, pass.
Ulta Beauty Brow Tint “Medium”: This was on of my 2017 favorites. I love this product will always repurchase.
Flower Beauty Stick Foundation: Surprisingly, I liked this product a ton. It was long wearing with good coverage. I expected it to be drying, it was not. May actually repurchase!
Leeanni Eco 3-in-1 Revolution Light: I liked this product for days where I was too lazy to do my skin care routine. But, I would not be able to use this in place of everything out. It is a bit expensive, so I think I’ll pass.
Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil *sample*: I still don’t understand why this product is so pricey and raves about. I don’t think it did anything for me. Will not Purchase.
Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Cream *sample*: I actually really enjoyed this Eye Cream. I think once I get through some I have, I will purchase the full size.
Precious Skin Elixirs Sea Pearl Exfoliating Clay: I thought this was a nice gentle exfoliant, but I prefer something more abrasive. Will not purchase.
Dr.Brandt Microdermabrasion age defying exfoliator *sample*: I love this exfoliator, but I wish it wasn’t soo expensive. I am toying with the idea of purchasing the full size.
Assured Cotton Rounds: These were just the cheapest ones I saw, so I grabbed them. No real opinion.
Hushables Baby Wipes: I grabbed these real quick to remove swatches and they did their job fine. Again, no real opinion they were $1.
Equate Exfoliating Facial Wipes: My Mom grabbed these real quick for me one day so I used them. They did their job just fine, but I wouldn’t seek them out.
Garnier Micellar Water: This product works great, but it is not CF so I will not be repurchasing.
Hello Whitening Tooth Paste: I am not sure why I threw this under makeup remover, but here we go. I really liked this tooth paste, but I prefer the Luster White, so I am just going to stick with that.
Body lotions and perfume
Soap & Glory Righteous Butter: I love this Body Butter, if Soap&Glory is CF I will be repurchasing.
BBW Vanilla Bean Noel Hand Sanitizer: as I said with the wall flower, I will not be repurchasing this product because BBW is not ethnically CF. (They are expand into markets where animal testing is required by law.)
Fortune Cookie Soap “Bonjour” Whipped Cream: I love the formula and scent. I will be purchasing more of their whipped creams if I can’t find this specific one.
Love’s Baby Soft: Y’all this Body Spray has some how stuck with me for almost 10 years!!! So, I sprayed my closet with it to keep the close hanging up smelling fresh. Just to get through it. Will not repurchase.
That is it for my Empties, thank you for reading.💜💜
