April Empties

Hey Everyone!

Long time no talk! I didn't have enough items earlier in April to do an empties blog post so I waited a few extra days until I finished up some more items.


Hair
Selsun Blue Anti-Dandruff Shampoo - This one with the red label is my least favourite to be quite honest with you. There is only 1% of Pyrithione Zinc which is less than other formulas. I find it to be not as effective to battle my oily/dry scalp.

Oral Hygiene
Equate Flosser Picks (90 Count) - I purchased these at Wal-Mart and they did the job well! They are affordable and do not break while using! I definitely recommend these!

Colgate Total Whitening Toothpaste - I am really not a huge fan of this product but what I do like about it is that it comes in the gel formula. It is inexpensive and I have stocked up on these so I must get through them!

Face
Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream for Combination/Oily Skin - This is an item that I purchased at The Body Shop when they sent me a 50% off coupon which I used on this item. I found it to be hydrating but it did not help with my skin type. I would not repurchase this. I did like that it absorbed quick into the skin and I used it in the morning before I applied my makeup.

Hands
Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap in Oh Snap! - I have mentioned this before and I really can't get enough of the packaging! I am a huge sucker for packaging and aside from that, the gingerbread scent is absolutely heavenly! 

Bath & Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap in Vanilla Bean Noel - I have been using this scent for years and love a great vanilla scent!

Bath & Body Works Deep Cleansing Hand Soap in Perfect Beach Day - This scent is amazing! On the side of the bottle, it is described as having the following inside, "watery melon, young coconut and sparkling bergamot." I already want to buy another bottle of it! You need to smell it for yourself!


Body
Bath & Body Works Body Lotion in Carried Away - I have known about this scent for quite some time and have repurchased it many times. At first, it can seem rather strong but it wears nicely throughout the day. The notes are: raspberry, white jasmine and vanilla. It is perfect to wear around Valentine's Day!

Johnson's Baby Soothing Vapour Bath - I am a huge fan of Johnson's baby products and wanted to try something new out. I wasn't a huge fan and the formula is quite liquidy. I will go back to my other favourite products from the same brand!

Face Masks
The Face Shop Character Mask - This particular one has brightening properties and it is a fun mask to use! I found my skin to be tighter and very subtle after use! It is paraben free and I will want to use this again in the future!

Life Brand Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask with Hyaluronic Acide & Konjac - It claims to be hydrating and to also smooth the skin. I would have to agree and it was very affordable at Shoppers Drug Mart. They have many different ones to choose from!

Life Brand Brightening Facial Sheet Mask with Ouija & Scutellaria Extract - I have been on a sheet mask kick lately if you haven't been able to tell! This one promotes radiance and brightens your skin. I say that their claims are true and that it is a very easy product to use! You only leave it on for 10-15 minutes.

Samples
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths - I used up 4 of these and they are such great wipes! I will definitely purchase a pack of my own once I am out of wipes!

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleaner for Face & Body (All Skin Types) - I finished an entire bottle of this product a few years back and I forgot how much I liked it! It helps break-down my makeup and does not irritate my eyes!

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion for Body (All Skin Types) - Same deal, I went through a bottle of this awhile back and it really absorbs quickly into the skin after a shower! My only issue with these two packets is that you HAVE TO use scissors to open them and I didn't have them close-by which led to much frustration to get it open.

The Face Shop Verbena Soothing Body Cleanser - I was given two free samples at the store with my purchase and the scent was very light as well as refreshing! It was extremely pleasant to use and I enjoyed these samples very much!

L'Occitane Milk Concentrate for Body - This was a great body lotion that I even used on my face! It is lightly fragranced and absorbed quickly into the skin with no sticky feeling being left behind.

Lionesse Gem Skin Care White Pearl Day Moisturizer - This is apparently a $200 skin care item if you buy the full-sized version. It does feel luxurious and did not make my face break-out but I don't like it enough to drop $200 on it.

The Body Shop Oils of Life - It says that it is an intensely revitalizing facial oil. I wouldn't use the word "intensely," but other than that, I would have to agree. I used it at night and my face felt fresh in the morning when I woke up.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth - Youth Cream - I REALLY enjoyed using this cream! It wasn't too thick and really penetrated into my skin. It was so soft the next day and I am wanting to purchase a larger size when I go through my other skin care products! I can't say enough good things about it!

Kaizen Naturals Whey Protein in Vanilla Bean - I want to give a shoutout to this company for sending me a sample of their product! I previously had a bad experience with another brand of protein powder and was skeptical to try another one. I am certainly glad that I did because this one tasted like a vanilla milkshake! I just added the entire packet to my water and stirred for 20-30 seconds are directed on the back. Some benefits are that it is: gluten free, there are no artificial colours or flavours, it is sweetened with Stevia, from grass fed cows and there is low temp filtration. There are 24 grams of protein, only 120 calories and only 1 gram of sugar which is amazing! I had a great experience using it and am excited to see which other flavours they have!

Miscellaneous
Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies with Biotin - These vitamins really need no introduction because I speak about them all the time. Basically, they are my holy grail and help my hair as well as my nails grow long & be strong!

TUMS Antacid Ultra Strength 1000 mg in Peppermint (72 Count) - I have been using TUMS for over a decade and always have some in my purse. They have helped me on numerous occasions as well as my friends! I can't be without them.

Secret Scent Expressions Antiperspirant in Va Va Vanilla - This is in my top 3 favourite deodorants of all time and it is vanilla scented! I can't say no to that!

BIC Soleil Twilight Razors (5 Count) - These are incredible and really help me get a close shave! The only downfall is that they dull very quickly and I find myself replacing them quicker than I would like to. 

Until next time,

STAY CLASSY.
