March Empties / Lush, Murad, Revlon, Bath & Body Works

4/11/2018


Revlon Powder
Lush Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo
Bath & Body Works Bourbon Maple Candle

This post is actually a healthy mix of true empties and some old things I just needed to purge. It's a little embarrassing, but in the spirit of full disclosure, here it goes.

Over the years of doing so much traveling (see my 2017 wrap up here), I started keeping a packed makeup bag under my bathroom counter so that I could just toss it in my suitcase and go. Over time, it has collected a ton of product until it was almost bursting, and I had to weed it out. I found things in there that I don't even remember buying including this loose powder labeled Revlon Pro. I vaguely remember buying it at a beauty supply store, but I could not tell you if it was good, bad or terrible. It must have been empty for some time just sitting at the bottom of the bag, but I don't even remember using it. 


Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup

Instead of using powder lately, I've taken to wearing a light layer of foundation with a brushing of mineral foundation on top for more coverage. The Revlon ColorStay Aqua has a very cool, moist feel as it's applied. I find it to be a very hydrating foundation with a great finish that isn't too cakey. I'm hoping that this combo will hold up during the hot summer that will be here before we know it.

Next up on the "I can't believe how long I've had this" roster is the Yuzu Hand Scrub from Archipelago Botanicals. I loved this stuff, and when it got a bit dry, I added some almond oil and continued to use it. Over the last year, the skin condition caused by my gluten intolerance made it impossible to even think about scrubbing salt into my hand. Since it's so much better now that I've adjusted my diet, I decided to do a scrub and found that the remaining product had hardened into a rock finally, so I'm tossing it.



L'Occitane Shea Butter One-Minute Hand Scrub

I just bought this L'Occitane Shea Butter Scrub as a replacement and hope to be able to give an honest review of it in the next few weeks.

The Murad Renewing Eye Cream was nothing memorable, and neither was the Lush Honey Shampoo, so thank goodness both were just samples.

This month's candle was the Bourbon Maple, which is a little bit sweet and a little bit boozy. I'm not excited for warmer weather because, well, hot, but also because candles like this seem so much better suited for cold days. Is it just me or do you burn different scents depending on the season, too?
