March - April Empties '17

Hello! Finally finding some time to sit down and crank out some blog posts. Sorry!

These include some travel empties from my Vegas trip mid March and into April.

Here is my trashy trash -

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion - This was nice. I mostly used this in the mornings when I would head to the pool.
Dr Brandt Needles No More 3D Filler Mask - This is okay. I have had samples of this in the past. 

 MAC Cleanse Off Oil - I love this stuff. So many samples! I should probably buy the full size sometime. The bottle was unopened and traveled well to Vegas.

 Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat in shade 2 [I think] - I used to love this stuff. I just used it to get it out. Not my favorite anymore but I do like getting the samples of it still.
Urban Decay Brow Tamer in Clear - My favorite brow gel!
Jack Black Lip Balm in Shea Butter spf 25 - I've had this sample for a while now but you really don't need a ton of this to be effective. Nearly finished in Vegas because I like the spf factor. Smelled great! Would buy a full size.
Beauty Blender Pro Sponge - I should have turned it around but this one was breaking off little pieces non stop. I think this one was an older one I had. It seemed to go super fast [for how long I can keep mine]. I'll be keeping this for more editorial looks or Halloween. The pro sponge is my favorite. I CAN TELL A DIFFERENCE.

 Neutrogena Make Up Remover Wipes - a travel staple.
Karuna Hydrating Face Mask - I got these in a 4 pack I believe in my Fab Fit Fun box. These are super nice.
Dior Hydra Life Micellar Water - A nice sized sample that lasted me a few days. Not my favorite though because it felt like it left a film on my face. Usually I'm naughty and just use my Bioderma and go to bed. This I had to remove and then felt obligated to continue with my skincare.

 Shiseido Facial Cottons - I'm addicted. Can't stop won't stop.
Wet Ones Extra Gentle Wipes - I like having these to clean my fingers when doing makeup and cleaning my vanity area.
Studio 35 Beauty Dual Tip Applicators - These are nice and firm. Repurchased in different packaging and keeping this box on my vanity to refill.

 VitaFusion Extra Strength Biotin Gummies - These are SO good. Taste so yummy [I have to yell @ my husband to only have 2] and I found these on Amazon. I bought them after I regretfully cut 6 inches off of my hair. Judging by my crazy roots, they are working really well.
OPI Teenage Dream Nail Polish - Ugh, my favorite polish ever is gone. Not even gone, just smells toxic. Funny that I HATE pink normally but this was just such a beauty to wear. I do have a few polishes that are almost dupes, so that's okay. Goodbye my sweet prince.
Kat Von D x Formula X polish in Homegirl - Spoiler alert from my Finish 17 in '17.
Formula X Shine Top Coat - Not completely used up, but just too goopy to use.
Rohto Cool Eye Drops - I love these. I try to not use them all the time, but they are nice when you get eyeshadow or other gunk in your eyes and you need to reduce redness. These are what I use when my eyes are so red for photos.

 L'Oreal Ever Pure Volume Shampoo - Nice, would repurchase.
MorrocanOil Restorative Hair Mask - I liked this mask! It was spendy but it smelled amazing and worked really well.
Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo & Conditioner - We love Aveda in this house and we love Rosemary Mint dearly. I don't use it much because I find it a tad stripping for me, but my husband LOVES it. So these samples are mostly a husband empty. We have the full sizes.
OverTone Extreme Purple Conditioner - I love this stuff, but it stains. I like ordering a travel size for ......traveling. I mixed some deep conditioner in with it for vacations.
Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry - I really loved this! I usually don't get into the different scents, but this was awesome.

 Schmidt's Natural Deodorant in Spruce & Spice - I tried this brand after my pits were getting irritated from La Vanila deodorants. This smelled awesome and seemed to work great. I do notice I still get a tad irritated if I use this strictly everyday. If I use it on days I know I'll need it, it works wonderful.
Lush Beautiful Shower Gel - This was a random guy floating around my cabinet that I needed to just use up. Smelled great, I believe this is a permanent scent?
Fortune Cookie Soap Master Exfoliating Body Wash - This stuff smelled SO yummy! It's from the FCS Halloween box which was inspired by Hocus Pocus. It wasn't as exfoliating as I'd like but it was nice to use. It went really fast for me though.
St. Tropez Prep & Maintain Tan Enhancing Body Polish - I bought a kit from St. Tropez to self tan the slightest bit for Vegas. This was the first thing to go as I just love body scrubs. It was nice, a little too fragranced but still nice.
Witch Baby Soap Hex Breaker Body Scrub - Just yummy. Forever in love with Witch Baby Soap. Their body scrubs are SO GOOD.

Candles by Victoria Spiced Pear - Am I a real blogger now that I've purchased & burned a candle by Candles by Victoria/!??!?! I gave into the hype and after 1 done I'm in love. I want to try ALL of the scents! I bought a pack of 6? or so where you pick the scent. Naturally I bought many fall scents and this one was still fall like but fruity too. So good.
Bath & Body Works Georgia Peach 3 Wick Candle - SO MUCH YUM. I almost kept the jar because I love the color, but I need to stop hoarding "projects".
B&BW Wallflowers in Harvest Gathering & Holly Berry Balsam - Both very good.
B&BW Hand Soap in Vampire Blood & Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin - Good & will forever repurchase the Halloween scents!
