Empties #3 | Products I've Used Up

Time to talk trash again!  Here are the products I have used up since my last empties post, as well as a few products that just needed to get...well...trashed.

Mabelline Ultra Liner - Waterproof, Black {see duel vs. NYC Liner here}
If you read my review you knew my full feelings on this one...I haven't used it since and it just needed to go.  NOT REPURCHASED!

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm - Grape Vine
This was just terrible.  I know a lot of people love or hate the Babylips line.  I don't mind the medicated Dr Rescue version (but it's only ok).  The regular version dried out my lips even more.  I would put it on before bed and end up with a weird stain around my mouth (that sounds...bad) and cracked lips.  NOT REPURCHASED!

Dove Coconut & Hydration Shampoo
I love, love, love this shampoo.  I also use the Dove Color Care Shampoo but it's harder to find in my area so I keep this in my shower as well.  Love the light scent, and it gives my hair just the right amount of hydration (I have more oily hair).  ALREADY REPURCHASED!

Aveeno Living Color - Color Preserving Shampoo and Conditioner
I liked this, but it was another one that was getting harder to find.  I kept this in my travel bag and used it a lot when my hair was dyed red to keep the color longer.  Loved the scent but my hair did feel weighed down a bit sometimes.  ON THE FENCE.

Soap and Glory Peaches and Cream Deep Cleansing Milk {full review here}
Ugh, I wanted to love this so much.  I love the scent, but it just didn't do enough for me.  It definitely didn't remove any more makeup than a normal face wash.  However, I do love their Vitamin C cleanser {review here}.  This is the only Soap and Glory product that's been a disappointment so far!  NOT REPURCHASED!

Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser
Love this face cleanser.  I love the way it smells, the way it makes my face feel, the pump, everything.  REPURCHASED!

Avalon Organics Intense Defense Oil-Free Moisturizer {full review here}
I really wished this had worked out.  I wanted a natural moisturizer and thought the Vitamin C would perk my skin up and add some "glow."  No go.  NOT REPURCHASED!

Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask
Yes, this does have a "stinging" sensation as you put it on, but after a minute it settles down to a cooling, menthol like feeling.  Probably best not for sensitive skin, but I liked it and thought the results were nice.  WOULD REPURCHASE!

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - Hydrating
I love these wipes.  They're nice and thick as well as super saturated with the makeup remover.  I have felt a little sting around my eyes at times, but not enough to stop me from using them.  Definitely better than the Target brand.  Leaves a nice hydrated feeling behind.  WILL DEFINATELY REPURCHASE!

Soap and Glory Hand Food
Love this hand lotion.  Really moisturizes and I love the scent even though I am not a marshmallow fan.  ALREADY REPURCHASED!

Aveeno Skin Relief Hand Cream
Awesome hand lotion - sinks in quickly and is a super saver for dry, cracked hands.  The bottle lasts forever and it's a good price.  WILL DEFINATELY REPURCHASE!

Udderly Smooth Hand Cream
My dad had some Udderly Smooth at his house and I loved it.  It almost reminded me of the Aveeno one above, but had like a minty smell and coolness to it.  This was not the same at all.  It was super hard to rub in, and make my hands so weird and hard to wash later (like no soap would get through).  WOULDN'T REPURCHASE!

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream
Love Neutrogena, love this!  Sinks in fully, makes hand super smooth and all that weird winter crepeyness gone, baby, gone.  A lifesaver.  ALREADY REPURCHASED!

Bodycology Runaway Heart Exfoliating Sugar Scrub
Great body scrub.  My mother-in-law got this for me at Harmon and I really enjoyed it.  It's just the right amount of scrub, not too harsh, not too little (said Goldilocks to Bear).  I actually liked the scent a lot too - it reminded me of Twilight Woods from Bath and Body Works which is one of my favorite scents from B&BW.  WILL DEFINATELY REPURCHASE!

Baby Beauty:
Burt's Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash - Calming
I talked about this in a BabyBeauty Favorites post.  We love Burt's Bees and Baby Bee around here, and this is no exception.  Gentle on toddler skin, no harmful chemicals, and the scent is just amazing.  ALREADY REPURCHASED!

Burt's Bees Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion - Calming
Another Baby Bee favorite, and again, the scent is wonderful.  This is super hydrating and not greasy if it gets on little feet and hands.  Baby Beauty now has the pump version and likes to take some out and rub it on her own hands, legs, and belly.  ALREADY REPURCHASED!

Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion - Lavender & Vanilla
This lotion is slightly lighter in texture than the Baby Bee one, but soaks in quickly and leaver her skin super soft.  The scent is super nice as well, and very relaxing.  WILL DEFINATELY REPURCHASE!
