Empties – October 2016-January 2017

These 4 months were actually fairly decent for finishing off products in our house!

Bath & Body Works Hand Soaps – this is basically the only brand of hand soap we use, and there’s usually 7 bottles of it on the go at any given point in our house (3 bathroom, 2 bottles in each – you need variety!, plus a bottle in the kitchen). I really enjoyed the smell of all 4 of these ones.

Veet – because who wants hairy legs? Let’s burn that hair off with chemicals!

Herbal Essences Shampoo – that bottle was huge, and lasted forever.

Live Clean Body Wash – this was unscented and mild, but lathered up nicely.

Colgate Toothpaste – my favourite toothpaste! This stuff is one of the cheapest ones out there, but I love it.

Foil samples – toothpaste (again, my fav kind!), Tresemme shampoo/conditioner and Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream (this stuff smelled really nice!)

Normally I wouldn’t include deodorant, but this one will be one of the last regular ones I ever use. I’ve almost completely made the switch to organic deodorant these days. I don’t actually know if it’s better, but it has to be better for you.

Julep – No Limits Cream – I really liked this moisturizer (once I figured out how to get it out of the container). Once I get through my insane collection of face moisturizers, I would consider purchasing this one.

Julep – DD Creme – I’m sure this would have been nice, but they sent me the wrong shade (it was way too dark for my pale skin), and then I forgot about it so it just sat buried beneath my other makeup until it went bad. Opps.

The little bottle was a sample of face moisturizer. I have dry skin, and recently diagnosed psoriasis – I go through a ton of moisturizer lately.

Bread & Butter Daily Face Shave – this was Luke’s. He seems to enjoy this brand, he’s had it a few times now.

The next two bottles were leave in stuff for my hair. I never really notice much of a difference when I use these things, but I never style my hair or put product in it, so I’m not the best judge.

The last bottle was conditioner.

That little pink bottle was some weird face product sample I received in a subscription box. It has a bunch of warnings all over it and seems like serious business – I didn’t like the feel of it on my face at all.

Origins face wash – Luke used this, as it was designed for oily skin. He used it all, so it must have been ok.

The middle bottle was a hotel sample of body wash.

The top one is Lush, Angels on Bare Skin. Meh, not my fav from there.

Little perfume/cologne samples –

Azzaro for Him – Luke has a full size bottle of this, it’s ok

Yves Saint Laurent  L’Homme – Luke owns the full sized bottle of L’Nuit de L’Homme (which is just a variation of this one). The one he owns smells amazing, and is better than this one.

Calvin Klein Euphoria – I own a full sized bottle of something from the Euphoria collection, but I don’t think it’s this exact one…
