April 2016 Empties!

Well, Sean and I are moved into our new apartment. Nothing is really put away though. Haha, we are both pretty good and procrastinating.

These are my April empties...

You'll have to excuse the quality and mess in the photos.. took these with my phone as we were packing crap up.

Body stuff! I tried this Hempz Sugar Scrub. It was okay. It smelled super yummy but sugar scrubs aren't my favorite. I used this jar up super fast because I love really scrubbing my skin good. Once again, I have an empty Ocean Salt Scrub from Lush. It's one of my favorites. Also from Lush, this African Paradise Body Conditioner. I like these types of in shower moisturizers more in the winter time but I just wanted to use this up. I think I liked this scent better than the rose scented one. 

Next up, this wallflower from Bath & Body Works... I can't remember what scent it is. But it was okay. This photo just reminds me I have to go find my wallflower soon. I like having a little night light in the bathroom! Also from B&BW, this Sparkling Pear Riesling candle. UGH it smelled SO GOOD. I wanted to drink it. I love scents that are like peach or pear.

I'm pretty much done with this Sally Hansen Diamond Shine Nail Polish. It was a nice top coat but it took for fucking ever to dry. I also tried the liquid Dew The Hoola Bronzer by Benefit. I actually thought it looked pretty decent on me! I just used it around my hair line and to give my cheeks a tiny bit of color and I may just buy it this summer. Not surprising, but I finished an Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown. I've already repurchased it. 

As usual, I used up an Urban Decay B6 Complexion Spray... I always say I'm gonna try to go without it once I use it up to see if it makes a difference, but I am using up a travel size and have a full size on the way. It's just so habitual that I just love it. Next is this bottle of Bioderma. I love this stuff. I should have saved the bottle, and am now kicking myself because I didn't save it. If I can ever find the same bottle, I'll keep it. It was a nice pump. I finished off this Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner. It took me a while because I love my Rodan + Fields system. I didn't find this did anything miraculous for my skin. And finally, The Body Shop's Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. I. did. not. like. this. AT ALL. This took me a long time to use up as well, because it just wasn't my favorite. I hated that I had to technically cleanse my face after using this. The one I'm using now, I don't have to if I don't want to. 

Also, sorry for the orientation of this. Since going purple, I've been trying out different purple shampoos and conditioners and what not. This Joico Color Balance Conditioner in Purple was okay. Same with the Joico Color Endure Violet Shampoo. I may go back to Ulta to see what else they have, BUT now I live within walking distance to a Sally's. I found this brand called Overtone on Instagram and decided to try it out. I got this Vibrant Purple Weekly Treatment and a matching Conditioner in the travel size [I also have a full size conditioner]. The conditioner is okay, I'm still gonna use it to see how I like it but I may repurchase the Weekly Treatment. 
HOWEVER.... this whole fucking tub barely was enough for me to use on my whole head. I suppose I should have had damp hair when I applied it but it gave me a good boost of color. Maybe next time I will take a before and after picture. I'm just trying to make it until the beginning of June to re-color. So, yes on a repurchase, but hell no for a weekly treatment. haha
I used up this John Frieda Color Glaze in Clear. I still like this stuff, I remember using it in high school when I had brunette and red hair. Back when they actually made the glaze for redheads... And also this Bumble & Bumble Bb Straight Blow Dry Cream. I've had this deluxe sample size for a while because I only really use it when I have kinks from my pony tail in my hair already and just want to blow dry them out and smooth down my frizz. I may have another sample but if not, I'm going to purchase the full size. 

Again, apologies for the orientation of this photo. I used a Polyjuice Potion Bath Bomb from Fortune Cookie Soap. SO GOOD. My favorite scent from them. More Cotton Rounds from Walgreens. Always repurchased. And Precision Tip Q-tips. My faves!

Even a few days into the new place, I have my May [WHAT] empties going. How is the year nearly halfway over already???
