October Beauty Empties - Products I Used Up & Reviews

Hi Beauties!

Here's all the products I finished in the month of October and mini reviews of each item.  How strange that I finished so many full size products at the same time.


Body Products

Attitude 2 in 1 Shampoo & Body Wash
I used this as a body wash since I have about a million shampoos in my stash to go through.  This was a decent body wash with a very light scent.  Nothing special though.

Bath & Body Works Vanilla Wish & Apple Fizz Body Cream
I love BBW body creams, they are super thick and moisturizing.  This one smelled like a nice mixture of vanilla and apple.  I believe this was from last holiday's collection.

Karora Express Bronzing Mousse
I originally really liked this self-tanner but now that I've used other brands, my eyes have been opened to the short-comings of this one.  It's SUPER sticky and uncomfortable for hours on the skin, I just want to wash it off right after I apply it.  Also, it has the gross self-tanner scent that I can't stand.

NKD Skin Tinted Tan Mousse
This is one of the self-tanners that makes the Karora one above look bad.  It's not the least bit sticky so I can put on clothes right away and it doesn't have the disgusting self-tanner scent.  It also gives me a nice colored tan.

Skincare

Cetaphil Face Cleanser
There's a reason this is a favorite amongst dermatologists.  It's gentle yet rinses clean.  I use it with my Clarisonic.  I will admit that it doesn't do the best job at removing my makeup so I always have to follow up with a toner on a cotton pad.

Hair Products

Octavio La Playa Sea Salt Spray
This was not a good salt/wave spray.  It barely brought out the waves in my hair and even made it more frizzy.

Proganix Quench Conditioner
This was a really nice moisturizing conditioner and it smelled amazing.  I enjoyed the entire Quench line from Proganix.

Pantene Moisturizing Conditioner
This is my favorite haircare line from Pantene.  It's for super dry hair so it works great on my dry damaged hair.

L'Oreal Boost It Blow Out Heatspray
This isn't an empty but I didn't like this product at all so I'm getting rid of it.  The packaging is a gimmick and awkward to use, why can't it just be in a regular spray bottle??  The product itself is useless, it didn't make my hair look or feel any better or worse.  I wouldn't repurchase.

Makeup

Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara
This was a decent mascara but nothing special really.  There are MUCH better high end mascaras so I wouldn't purchase a full size of this.

Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner
This is the best product to really deep clean liquid foundation out of my kabuki brushes.  I plan to purchase a big bottle of this during Sephora's upcoming VIB sale.

Extras

Due to some major stress causing the necessity for retail therapy, I've been really bad and been doing a lot of shopping (and plan to do some more!).  Yikes.  Expect to see a few hauls! :)

I can't believe it's almost the holiday season!  That blows my mind!
