Products I've Used Up



Some of my favorite beauty videos are usually empties videos because you get a look at what bloggers really use on a daily basis and a more reliable review. Here are some of the products I've completely used up lately.


Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Spray & Go Moisturizer
I originally picked this up because it was on half off and I'm a big fan of the original Cocoa Radiant formula. The idea of a body moisturizer that takes seconds to apply had me hooked. Usually after I get out the shower all I really want to do is get back into my clothes. Moisturizing my body just feels like such a hassle. This spray combined the cocoa butter formula I love with an easier form of application and a lighter feel, which was perfect for the summer months. And damn does this stuff smell amazing! It's the same scent as the original but I could just sniff it forever. I've already got a second bottle ready to go.

Épicé Purifying Exfoliant

This is a great exfoliant which I received in one of my Ipsy bags. It left my skin feeling very clean and smooth. Probably won't repurchase as I have a lot of other exfoliants at the moment which also work well for me.

Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Creme

This stuff smells absolutely amazing! Like magical herby goodness! If it weren't so expensive I would definitely want to try the shampoo and conditioner. I bought the small bottle off of Amazon for $9 because I wanted to give it a try since so many people rave about it. Unfortunately, I expect my finishing creams to not only add shine but to also reduce frizz, and for me, this just didn't handle the frizz as I hoped it would. If you're looking for a product to just give your hair some shine and make it smell fantastic, then I would definitely say go for it. For reference, this small bottle has lasted me a whole year! I don't know how that happened because I did use it regularly. Maybe I just wasn't using enough product each time to actually treat my frizz.

L'Oréal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm

This is the second tub of this balm that I've gone through. It really does seem to repair the dry, damaged feeling in my hair and make it softer and more moisturized. I use it as a deep conditioner a couple of times a week. It's got a thick, creamy texture, and a nice, soft scent that I really enjoy. I will most likely be repurchasing this as it's pretty much my go-to conditioner.

Alba Acnedote Face & Body Scrub

I bought this scrub to treat my body acne which seems to spring up from time to time, especially in the summer. The black scrub has a wonderful lemony scent that really masks the tea tree oil, which I can't really stand the smell of. It left my skin feeling exfoliated and fresh, and helped keep breakouts at bay. I even used it on my face some days to cut down on time. I would definitely repurchase this and have been missing it in my routine. But just a word of advice, if you use it in the shower make sure you thoroughly rinse the tub as the little exfoliating bits get everywhere.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Dark & Deep Brown

I have tried many, many drugstore dry shampoos and this is by far my favorite. My biggest gripe about most dry shampoos is the white, powdery finish that makes my hair look grey no matter how much I try rubbing the product in. That and the sometimes overpowering scent (I'm looking at you, Suave). This dry shampoo has the advantage of being brown and blending into my hair much easier. It really takes away the oily feeling at my roots while adding a bit of texture and volume. The scent isn't something I'm in love with but it's also not overwhelming or revolting. This is the second bottle I've gone through and it's definitely my favorite dry shampoo that I've tried.

So that's all of it! Do you ladies like empties posts? What products do you continuously repurchase when you run out?
