6 Recent Empties | Look at my Trash!

I have started saving all my empty beauty products in a bag. That way I can pull someone and review a few at a time.

Yes to Ying Yang Paper Mask

I love Yes To skin care, specifically their detox paper mask . I decided to try a new one this time. This mask is meant to be detoxifying and hydrating. Honestly, it seem just like the detox mask I love and was only $2.50

Would I repurchase? Sure, it’s essentially just the detox mask with a cute design.

Beauty Blender in Black

Look at my nasty sponge. I have been using this for like a year and figured it was time to move on.

What are your favorite alternatives to the original beauty blended? $20 is steep for a sponge, but I have yet to find a replacement.

Repurchase? Unfortunately, yes.

Fortune Cookie Soap Rebel Princess Restorative hair Mask

I love this stuff! It smells amazing and works wonders. I actually am currently using another one of their hair masks.

I am hardcore considering resubbing to their box.

Repurchase? I am not sure if I can still get this scent, but I will purchase the product again!

Lush Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly

The product itself is cute and smells great. The scent is long lasting on the skin.

However, I don’t like the whole jelly thing. I thought I would love it, but it just seems like a inconvenience.

Repurchase? No. But, if Lush has the scent in a regular shower gel over the Holidays, I would purchase that.

It Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara

This is my favorite mascara! It makes my lashes look fake! I hate wearing false lashes, so this mascara is a great alternative.

Repurchase? Always!!

The Ordinary High Adherence Silicon Primer

I purchased this primer a while ago when it was still being hyped up online.

I was not impressed, as far as living up to the hype goes. However, it is a good primer for the small price tag. I prefer it more than say the ELF or Wet N Wild ones.

Repurchase? No. I have enough primers that I actually love.

Those are a few of the beauty that I finished up recently. What are your thoughts on these products?

January 2019 Empties

January ended up being a hell of a month for me. I turned 23, had a week long hospital stay, and finally got a full diagnostic evaluation done.

Now that it is a new month, and I am going through some major changes, it is time to do this empties post and throw all this trash away.

Sheet Masks

The Crème Oh Deer! Detoxifying Lemon Sheet Mask

This mask was a gift, and I did enjoy it. I had a great makeup day the day after use. My skin was softer and brighter than normal. If I saw it I would pick it up.

Jeju:en You can’t handle this sheet

This mask came to me in Ipsy last month. It was neat, there was flames on the check area. The name is hilarious as well. However, I didn’t notice it do anything.

Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mask

This is my favorite Sheet Mask. Will always repurchase.

Biobelle #Beautysecret

This mask was great, made my skin very soft and moisturized. Which is a lovely perk to have in the harsh winter months.

C’est Moi Gentle Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes

I was sent these wipes to try out and i really like them! One wipe removed a full face of makeup, they are loaded with product to remove the makeup. They didn’t irritate my eyes either and most wipes do. I believe Target is beginning to sell this brand, I will be picking more up.

Veíse Hydrating Face Wash

I was also sent this product to try. I works great, my face was more clear than it has been in ages thanks to this wash. It is also a very clean product. However, I just cannot handle the apple cider vinegar smell. If smells don’t bother you, I recommend it.

Fortune Cookie Soap You’re the One That I Want Microdermabrasion Scrub

I loves this scrub. It made my skin feel great! I am probably going to purchase another if they have it on the FCS site.

Peter Thomas Roth 24 K Gold Mask

This mask was cool to use because it was gold, but I did not notice it do anything. I wouldn’t spend the money for the full size.

MAC Prep and Prime Skin Base

I got this sample in Ipsy. I really enjoyed it, made my base makeup look great. I would purchase the full size if MAC was cruelty Free.

FCS Sugar Rush Solid Sugar Scrub

Solid sugar scrubs are my new favorite thing. It’s so much easier to use and less of a mess than traditional body scrubs. This one smelled like candy! I will repurchase another solid scrub from FCS.

Farmacy Eye Dew Sample

The cream is really thick and made my under eyes feel very moisturized. I have another sample to go through, after that I may pick up the full size.

It Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara mini

I love this mascara, it is my current holy grail. I have already purchased the full size.

That is is for this months empties!

What did you use up this month?

Fortune Cookie Soap Oct 2018 | I’m gonna wreck it

It is time for the Fortune Cookie Soap OTM box again.

I have to say, I was surprised that the theme wasn’t a scary movie. But, Wreck It Ralph is a cute movie. I guess some people will enjoy the comic relief the movie brings during spooky season.

The Glitch Cuticle Butter $9.99

I never use cuticle stuff. I really need to though. I just feel like lotion does the same thing. Maybe I will make it a point to use this one.

Stay Sweet Milk Shake $8.99

As I have said before. I don’t have a bath tub. This milkshake almost looks like cakefetti mix!

It is supposed to smell like strawberries. My little sister is really going to like this.

Bad-Anon Hydrate Me $10.99

Scented with wild berries and cedar wood.

This is essentially the most convenient in shower lotion. I love in shower lotions.

The hydrate me smells amazing.

I’m Bad and That’s Good Perfume Oil $16

Scented with pomegranate and whipped caramel marshmallow.

The combination sounds strange, but it smells fantastic. I really enjoy the FCS perfume oils. They last for such a long time and have a noticeable fragrance.

Regenerate Body Wash $4.99

Scented with butter mint and caramel.

I can’t really detect a scent on this one.

It is just a travel size though, so it isn’t that big of a deal. Either Coty or I will end up using it.

Sugar Rush Solid Sugar Scrub $12.99

Scented with lemonade and bubblegum.

Boy can you smell it! Especially when you smell them individually.

I have never used a solid sugar scrub, I do have one from FCS already. I will need to bust them out soon.

Lalalaffy Taffy Laundry Detergent $9.99

Scented with orange cream salt water taffy.

I am way too excited about this new product than I should be. It smells great and I always can use laundry soap.

As always, I am happy with this box. I really look forward to it every month.

What is your favorite body care brand?

Fortune Cookie Soap OTM | Rydell Forever

I finally got a new phone! So hopefully my pictures won’t look like absolute trash anymore.

Anyway…

I love Fortune Cookie Soap. Every month they have themed boxes, usually movie themed which I also love, that you can subscribe to. I believe it is like $28 a month.

The products are usually limited collection previews, and the products are for the most part full sized. Super cool.

September’s box theme is “Rydell Forever”, so Grease. I LOVE musicals almost as much as scary movies. Fun fact, I did chorus/ show choir for like 4 or five years. Most of middle school and some of High School. Only quitting because we moved states and I refused to be a part of anything at my new school.

Back to the point, smell good stuff!

“You’re the one that I want” Microdermabrasion Scrub $14.99

I love microdermabrasion scrubs. I have a lot of scaring on my face. I pick any number on my skin as a nervous habit. THE WORST. So, these scrubs are my best friend.

This one is scented lightly with sandal wood and apple. It does smell nice.

“Pink Ladies” Wax Tarts $4.99

scented with chamomile, wild lily, pink jasmine, and pineapple nectar.

These hearts smell amazing! I want to save them for spring though sense they have such a lovely floral scent. I may even include them in Christmas gifts to friends.

“T-Birds” Shower Steamer $3.99

Fun fact number two for this post. I don’t have a bath tub, just a stand up shower, so shower steamers are the closest I can get to a bath bomb. Needless to say I lohove them.

This one is scented with redwood, saffron, persimmon purée, and a touch of peach. I love peach.

“Tell me about it…Stud” Dry Oil $12.99

I don’t think I have ever used a dry oil. Apparently they are like a perfumed frizz spray for hair or can be used like a spray on lotion for the body.

Scented with cranberry, mandarin, plumeria, orange and a “sexy” musk.. it does smell amazing.

“Summer Lovin'” Aloe me Whipped Cream $7.99

Instead of their original whipped body cream, they have been sending it mixed with aloe gel. I can’t even explain how nice it feels on my legs!!! I have insanely bad eczema all over my legs. It itches and burns and sucks. This formula cools them down and soothes them.

This one is scented with beach sands, lemon zests, and banana.

“Greased Lightning” Hemp Seed Leave-in Conditioner $12.99

My frizz ball hair loves leave in conditioner. I just ran out of the Fortune Cookie Soap Argon Oil hair serum thing I was using, so this came at the perfect time.

Scented with bergamot (yaaasss), clycamen, and woody undertones.

Sandra Dee” Shower Smoothie $15.99

I cannot wait to use this, it smells so so good! My mom keeps trying to weasel it away from me. Sorry Janet!

Scented with Cotton Candy ( Que the pretty blue color) white raspberry, sparkling champagne, berries, and a touch of cypress.

That is it for this months box! Way worth the price to me, I love this brand so much!! It is creative, clean, and everything smells and works great.

Would you like to see more on any of these products?

FCS July 2018 |The Park Is Open

I LOVE Jurassic Park. I even have Velociraptor foot prints tattooed on my left foot.

As much as I dig Chris Pratt, I prefer the originals. And good old Jeff.

*The FCS OTM club is I believe $28 plus shipping. It contains limited editing products and first looks at their new releases.

Clever Girl Perfume Oil $12.99

Strawberry jam, apple, rose petals, vanilla.

The FCS Perfume oils are fantastic. Lately they have been all I wear as far as fragrance goes. The smell great and a little goes a long way for a long time.

This one has a heavy rose scent- which I enjoy.

Spare No Expense Body Milk $13.99

Lemon, bergamot, orange blossom, sea mist

I have never tried one of their body milks, or any body milk for that matter.

The scent reminds me of breakfast. I do like how light the product is, perfect for this stupid hot and sticky weather.

Preserved in Amber Exfoliating Body Wash $7.99

Amber, Pink Jasmine, mandarin, cassis berries

The FCS Exfoliating soaps are really nice. It isn’t to harsh, but it’s harsh enough to make a difference.

This scent though…not my jam. I think I will just pass it along to a friend who enjoys the movies as well.

Water Ripples Toilet Bombs $8.49

Sea minerals and dark cedar wood

I tried the toilet bombs in the past, and they actually work great! We live in the woods, so we have well water. I let these sit over night then scrub the next day. They do an awesome job of getting hard water rings off.

Cryo Can Shaving Cream $12.99

Summer squash, garden earth, dewy leaves

I usually just use lotion to shave, so it will be nice to use an actual shaving cream for a change!

I think the shaving cream smells really sweet, not at all what I was expecting.

Must Go Faster Car Freshner $7.99

Orange, thyme, lemongrass, and avocado

Right now I am using the Star Wars fabric spray from FCS and I love it, I think it’s called hidden rebel base?

But, that one is running low so this came at the perfect time.

The lemongrass scent is really strong, which is fine by me, I love lemongrass.

Life Finds Away Hair Detangler $10.99

Apricot, nectarine, white oak, sandalwood

My hair knots so easily and is very frizzy and dry. I have natural waves/ curls in my hair, so it’s kind of hard to deal with.

This detangler smells freaking amazing, I am really looking forward to using it.

100% love this box. I am so excited about it and excited to try everything, but the Exfoliating soap.

Would you like to see any of these products reviewed?

Fortune Cookie Soap OTM June ‘18| 80’s

Today has just been, well, the worst. So I decided to finally open up my Fortune Cookie Soap of the month Box for June.

I absolutely love Soap. I always have. Apparently when I was younger I would ask to go smell soap instead of look at toys.

FCS is a cruelty free brand and all their items are made in Oklahoma, USA. I believe I pay around $35 a month for this box including shipping. I live in Missouri for reference.

This months theme is the 80’s. Let’s dig in!

Billie Jean Perfume Oil $7.99

“Mandarin zest, birch wood, and vanilla.”

The scent of Billie Jean is warm with citrusy under notes. I actually really enjoy it. I have a few other FCS perfume oils and they all last a very long time.

“Danger Zone” It’s a Doodie! Toilet spray $9.99

“Peach Melba, sugar musk, Black Cherry.”

More of FCS’s version of poo-poury!!! We love the other one I received. This one has a nice scent to it as well.

Permed and Teased Argon Hair Shine Serum $8.99

Sweet Pea and a base note of nectarine “

I can always use a good hair oil. I have frizzy, wavy, and damaged hair. I am always happy to try a new one. Especially one that smells so good!

Life is Delicious Lip Scrub $9.99

“Strawberries “

I will be honest, I am not big on the taste of strawberries. But I did test this product out so I think I am going to see if my mom wants it.

For reference it is not as harsh as the Lush lip scrubs, and also more moisturizing. It would be perfect if it wasn’t strawberry flavored.

Mixtape Glowtion $14.99

“Watermelon, light white floras, coconut”

I have tried this Glowtion a few times already. I love it! It smells fantastic and makes my arms and legs look so good. It has a slight tan tint to it as well as some shimmer. It is the perfect product for summer.

FCS Vice Cooling Aloe Mist $9.99

“Mojitos, sugared papaya, casaba melon”

This aloe mist is meant to cook you down after a day in the sun. Or just feeling super hot in general. This is another product I have already tried. I love it, another great edition to your summer product arsenal.

Totally Rad Facial Cleansing Oil $16.99

Bartlett pears, pink grapefruit, pink sugar”

Always up for a facial cleanser. This is one is packed with vitamin E,A,C and D. Sounds like a great way to fight bacteria to me.

There is only one product this month I won’t be using. Everything else I am already loving or very excited to try. Another Of The Month well worth the money. I am excited to see what next month brings!

Which products are you curious to see reviewed?
