Products I've Used Up #3!

empties products i've used up 
I've been hoarding empty products in a bin in my closet for months now and it keeps slipping my mind to do another empties post, so here we finally are! There are a ton of products to go through so I won't go too in depth with these (especially since some are re-purchases and have been in my previous empties posts).

Bath & Body Works Country Chic Creamy Body Wash // I got this ages ago during a semi-annual sale. I like the formula and lather of the creamy body washes but I wasn't too fond of this scent.

Garnier Fructis Color Shield Shampoo & Conditioner // I got sent these products from Influenster for review purposes and though they were a decent shampoo and conditioner, I believe they both contained sulfates which did not help preserve my hair colour. I've recently made the switch back to sulfate free shampoo and I've noticed such a difference already!

Garnier Fructis Passion Splash Conditioner // I love the smell of this conditioner. It's also super moisturizing! I believe it does contain sulfates which is no good for my coloured hair, but if that's not a concern for you I'd highly recommend it!

It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product // This is a holy grail status hair product for me. It does 10 things in one and helps keep my hair tangle-free and smooth, as well as protects it from heat and does multiple other things!

Biore Blemish Fighting Astringent // Another holy grail product for me, I use this every morning and night and it does a great job of preventing breakouts and clearing up any spots I get!

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover // I've been using this eye makeup remover as long as I've been wearing makeup. It's so great and can remove almost anything, and it's really gentle and doesn't irritate my eyes whatsoever.

Elf Eyebrow Kit in Medium // I do enjoy the Elf Eyebrow Kit and I've gone through a few of them, however I always run out of the tinted wax side way faster than I do the powder side, so the majority of the powder half of the product just gets thrown out. I've recently made the switch to Anastasia's Dipbrow Pomade so I don't think I'll be going back to Elf's brow kit any time soon again.

Elf Brow & Clear Mascara // I used to use this to set my brows but lately I've been using NYX's new brow gel and I much prefer it. This worked okay but it made my brows too crisp and crunchy.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder // I don't need to say much about this powder. Holy grail powder. I use it daily. I've already repurchased and have backups!

Beauty Secrets Acetone // It took me about a year and a half to get through this huge bottle of acetone nail polish remover and I have since repurchased! It works great and doesn't dry out my nails too much since it's the nourishing formula!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer // I really enjoyed this concealer! Right now I'm using the Maybelline Fit Me concealer but I think this is one I'll definitely repurchase sometime!

Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation // I really like this foundation! It's not super longwearing but it's really great for day-to-day wear. It has great coverage and a matte finish which I enjoy!

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation // Another holy grail product. I've used up a few bottles of this foundation over the past year or so and it's amazing! Has fantastic coverage, is long wearing, and has a nice natural matte finish on the skin. If you haven't tried this foundation yet you need to!

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser // This is a great primer for filling in any fine lines and pores. Lately I've been using a sample of Benefit's Porefessional primer and I have to say I'm preferring that one, but this Maybelline one is a good budget-friendly option!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance // It took me a good 1.5 years of using this eye shadow primer daily to use it up and I already have another. You need the absolute tiniest bit and it makes your eyeshadow last all day long without creasing!

Urban Decay Ink for Eyes Liquid Liner // This liquid liner pen was pretty good. It was super black and very long wearing. However, the felt tip on it wasn't my favourite so I don't think this will be a product I repurchase.

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara // I love this mascara. I've been using it for a couple of years now and I think it'll always be a favourite mascara for me!

Bath & Body Works Candles: Pumpkin Cupcake, Pumpkin Apple, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Marshmallow Fireside // All of these candles smelled amazing! I've had them all since last fall but I burned them up this season and really enjoyed them all!

Well, that was quite a long post. I'll see you all tomorrow for another day of Blogmas!!


  1. Look at all the makeup you used up! Nice job! I really like the It's a 10 as well, but I have the one with keratin right now. I think I actually like that one better, especially the scent.

    1. It feels great to get through so many products! And next time I repurchase it I think I might try the Keratin one. I've heard great things about it!
