Empties #3

Hi y’all! I am here again to go through some of my used products! Enjoy!

Babyganics Shampoo+Bodywash: I can’t find the squeeze version of this anymore.  Which makes me sad because we have the pump version and I hate that it falls in the tub and gets water in it. I love the smell of this and that it rinsed clean from baby.  I tried using it as bubble bath but it left a film in the bath tub.  LOL.  I would recommend this product.

Dial Body Wash: This body wash didn’t seem drying. For those who don’t like a strong scent this would be good for you.  I like strong scents in body wash so it wasn’t my favorite. This has a great price point and it foams up really well which I like. Overall, it is a quality product for a good price.

CVS Dry Shampoo: I bought this in a pinch and it was on sale.  It works alright.  I think sometimes it can leave my hair looking a bit dull.  Also, it doesn’t seem to be as long lasting as I would like.  I usually have to reapply it throughout the day.  I would splurge on a better quality unless you are in a bind!

Matrix Smoothing Serum: This is the OLD version but I have linked the new one.  This works great but honestly I like my Paul Mitchell better only because it seems less sticky when I put the product in my hand.  I think the Matrix version is just thicker.  It helps keep my frizzy hair in line though for sure! I would recommend this.

Mac Blush: This brand is my go to for blush. This one is on it’s last leg and it busted to bits the other day so it is getting retire.  I love this color and a little goes a long way.  I think this blends well with other make up brands and the color is pretty true! Recommend!

Motrin: We have used this for fevers (as mentioned above) and for teething.  Recommend having this on hand!*

Tylenol: We had our first fever not to long ago  (as mentioned above) and this was great to rotate with Motrin.  Seemed to give our little guy some relief. Recommend having this on hand! *

*Please consult your doctor before giving your child medication.

Empties

Hey everyone! One thing I am trying to get better about is using up the products I have before buying new things.  So I thought I would start compiling my empty products and then give feedback on what I like and didn’t like!

Nothing is off limits so these posts will cover makeup, beauty, baby, food…. and so on! Let’s get started!

gg

Physicians formula powder:  Great product.  I still lean toward lose powder because I break my pressed powders EVERYTIME.  I would still recommend this product.  It has good coverage and is great on sensitive skin.

Elf Eyeliner: LOVE LOVE LOVE this product and the price point.  And even though the container is small it lasted quite awhile! Thumbs up!

Huggies wipes: I love these wipes.  Are good at getting everything clean (both baby wise and baby mess wise) and I like that they are a little thicker. Thumbs up!

Up & Up wipes: This wipes did the job but I HATED the scent.  I would recommend unscented.

Hand Creme: Love having this on the go in my diaper bag.  They don’t have this scent [I linked a similar one] but I love how this creme feels and it seems to keep my hands soft! Thumbs up!

Bath & Body Works Soap: I LOVE their soap and I love trying different scents.  The foaming soap is my favorite but not for any particular reason.  Both of the scents were great [I also LOVE the lemon scents for the kitchen]. These soaps were one of the reasons I decided I needed to start using up product. When we moved I found about 10 half used soaps under our sinks… what can I say I like to change them with the seasons.  Thumbs up on these!

Pantene: I LOVE this shampoo [& conditioner].  Everyone always compliments how shiny and pretty my hair is when I use this.  AND IT SMELLS SO GOOD.  Thumbs up!

Babyganics Bubble Bath: This stuff smells amazing and Tripp LOVES it! Bath time was major with sleep training and playing in the bubble bath is a favorite of Tripp’s.  I think the scent also helps him relax.  Thumbs up!

Vitafusion Prenatal: Since I am still breastfeeding I take prenatal.  I love the gummies but I have had a few brands and these aren’t my favorite in taste but they still taste good.  However, for someone else they may be their favorite flavor.   Would recommend.

What are you favorite products you consistently use up?
