December 2016 Empties!

Once again, empties are super late as ever, but oh well.

Also, again, apologies for the crap photos, but hey, they are photos of my trash so why do we care so much?

Here is what was used up in December!

 This Honeycrisp Apple Candle from B&BW smelled amazing, as did the Vampire Blood Pocket Bac Hand Sanitizer, AND the Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Wallflower that was in my guest bathroom. Also this free sample of the Crest 3D White Whitestrips was awesome. I would totally buy these monthly 1 hour ones over the daily ones. I do have sensitive teeth, so that's why I don't like the 14 day ones or whatever they come in now. But this one was SUPER sticky and actually stuck to my teeth, not just move around and taste all nasty. I mean, it still tasted nasty but it STUCK. AND made a noticeable difference.
I don't always looooove Lush Body Conditioners, but I loved that they came out with the Snow Fairy scent in this formula for the holidays. This was a tad thicker & richer in my opinion than the usual ones, so I mostly used this on my legs because they get the most dry in the winter. I liked it, probably wouldn't repurchase in this formula again. I still buy the body wash every year though. And I went through another Burberry Brit Sheer perfume. It's my favorite. Apart from the bottle being pink, they recently redid the bottle and it looks so fancy. Also, my mom uses this so I usually buy 2 bottles when I repurchase. I know, spendy, but we both love this perfume SO MUCH. So of course, it'll probably get discontinued soon; that always happens to scents we love.

Speaking of scents I love.... This Hempz Body Lotion in White Peppermint & Vanilla IS SO FUCKING GOOD. This is also so fucking old, as in like 2 years. But it's so good. I think they released it or a similar scent this past holiday season. So I may pick it up. But I do have a giant bottle of this stuff still. This is one of the only Hempz scents I can stand though, a lot of them, especially the good LE ones end up giving me a headache. Which sucks because I love the formula of their lotion. It sinks in so fast.
 As usual, I used up some Dr. Teal's Epsom Salt Soak. This Lavender one is my favorite. I used a bottle of Sage, Cedar & Sweetgrass Body Wash from Growing Blue Flowers. I don't see her selling this on her website but the smell was great and she sells other products in this scent. I liked thinking of it as a mini-smudge in the shower. Without all the smoke ;]

3 bath bombs from my current favorite, Witch Baby Soap. The Dead By Dawn one was awesome, coffin shaped and smelled amazing. Wolf Moon is by far one of their best scents ever and it was full of glitter! Winter Moon was awesome as well and was from the Winter Spell Box.
 This Lemon Sage Thickening Shampoo from Paul Mitchell was mostly a husband empty, but damn these smell good. Another L'Oreal Ever Pure Repair & Defend Conditioner bites the dust. I'm really loving experimenting with the different formulas in this line of hair care!
 I used up more of my favorite Shiseido Facial Cottons and the Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water. I have repurchased both, but I am keeping and reusing the Bioderma bottle, because the dispenser is the best. I used a 3 pack of Sephora Razors & Clinique's Acne Solutions Clearing Gel. I love that stuff, as it's less harsh than benzoyl peroxide, which I am extremely sensitive to.

Yay! Makeup empties!

I FINALLY used up this small but mighty tub of By Terry Balm de Rose Lip Balm. It was nice, but I would never buy a full size. I really enjoyed the Benefit They're Real Tinted Lash Primer! I could see myself buying a full size in the future. Another Urban Decay Brow Tamer in Clear, my #1 Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper [fancy LE packaging], this amazing Anastasia Beverly Hills Gel Eyeliner in Darkside [SO GOOD. Would repurchase], MAC's Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in NW20 [another soon to be repurchase] and finally the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. I'm so excited to try out their new versions of setting sprays! Not sure if they're reformulated or just repackaged, though...

What have you used up lately??
