July 2014 Empties

Wow, is it just me or did July go by really fast? This was a pretty decent month as far as empties went, more than I expected to be truthful. Keeping track of what I'm actually using and liking on a monthly basis has been fun and informative, that's for sure. Let's dig into my empties for July!

As you can see, I finished up 9 products in July. The breakdown is 2 hair products, 1 makeup item, 3 face products, 3 body products.

OGX Moroccan Argan Oil: Repurchase I love this product, I use it every time I wash my hair. I'm planning on doing a full review of this product so I won't say any more till then, but I've already repurchased it (Ulta was doing a buy 1 get one 50% off sale during July).

Eva NYC Hair Mask: Repurchase I received this in my May Ipsy bag and I love it. It smells amazing and really makes my hair super soft. I originally wasn't interested in buying it because of the price Ipsy listed for a full size ($40!!!) but when I was at Ulta the other day I saw they had it for $15, which is still a bit more than I normally spend, but with a coupon it wouldn't be to bad. I will wait till it is on sale again then I'll stock up for sure.

Kirkland Brand Makeup Removing Wipes: Already Have As I mentioned last time, I buy these at Costco so I'm set for a few months still. Once I've used the last one I'll debate whether to try a different brand or stick with this.

Dove Deodorant: Already Have This is another item I always get at Costco, so I'm set on these for I think another few months at least. I really like this type though so I'll always repurchase it when they're on sale.

Sea Breeze Astringent: Not Repurchasing I'm almost embarrassed to admit that this bottle is like 7 years old at least. I bought it to help with some nasty acne and never really liked it. It smells bad, makes my skin sticky, and any little cut stings like hell when I use it. It works great for acne, I will admit that, but now that I'm older my acne issues are slowing down a bit.

Coppertone Spray Sunscreen: Not Repurchasing As I said last month, if this was on sale I'd get it but it was just to much money for not enough product.

Coppertone Sunscreen: Already Have I received a large lot of these to review for a company so I still have plenty left. But as I've said before I really like this sunscreen and I'll do a more in depth review at a later point.

Mary Kay Face Serum: Not Repurchasing Way to expensive for my budget, no matter how much I liked it. If I could get some for cheap I'd snag it in a heart beat

ELF Hypershine Lipgloss: Not Repurchasing I got this in a big package deal, so in reality it cost me nothing, which is good because I hated it. The color (Vixen) and shine level were fine, but it tasted VERY strongly of plastic. And I hated the paint brush twist applicator, I would either get nothing or two much every time I twisted it, there was no happy medium.

That's it for my empties, see anything you guys use? I'm expecting my August empties to be low, mainly makeup that's almost done and hopefully some lotion I'm trying to use up.


  1. I love this idea! I'm terrible at finishing off products and just opening more, I might have to start doing this!

    1. Since starting this I find myself actually finishing things that I've had for years because I'm actively looking for things to finish. Plus I'm actually thinking about if I really want to buy more of something.
