October 2012 Empties!

I cannot believe how fast October, just kidding!  I cannot believe how many products I finished this month and I'm still going strong! While many like to use up products in the new year, I like to do it before the new year so that I can start fresh.

I am trying out a few new skin care products (and still working on older stuff) and that is why you'll read, "will repurchase at some point" several times below.  It's not because I don't enjoy the products, it's simply because I want to try some new things out and finish old ones.

Here we go, are you ready? Grab some coffee/tea, this is going to be a while...

Pure+Simple Face Wash (label came off because it was in my shower) - review here - I enjoyed this the more I used it, however, I won't be purchasing it because I like my current cleansers more.

Mary Ginseng Facial Scrub Cream - review here - LOVE! I had the full size before I even received the travel one.

Blum Naturals Towelettes -review here - ugh, hate wipes.  These did remove makeup VERY well but I just don't like wipes, so I will not be repurchasing.

Druide Toner - review here - This friggen thing lasted me like 4 months! I really enjoyed it and will repurchase at some point.

Pretty Lavender Facial Tonic - review here - I have gone through so many of these facial tonics and I will be repurchasing when I get a chance to hit up Big Carrot.

Pure+Simple Calming Cucumber Mask - review here - This mask is great for soothing and calming the skin. I will be repurchasing at some point.

Andalou Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask - review here - I really liked this mask and did notice a difference while using it, however, I'd really like to try out something else.  I doubt I will repurchase anytime soon.

One Love Organics Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster - no review - I received this sample from Fresh Faced with one of my orders.  I really enjoyed how it left my skin very hydrated and glowy.  I would consider purchasing the full size after I finish up some of the other serums.

Pure+Simple Cellular Repair Face Cream - review here - I absolutely hate the smell of this cream and my mom actually helped me use it up.  It's is very hydrating but the smell just kills it for me and I will not be purchasing this item because of that.  It's not even tolerable anymore.

Weleda Soothing Almond Facial Lotion - review here - I really love this stuff and have loved it for months.  I won the Soothing Almond Facial Cream which is thicker and will be trying that out soon.  I think I may have found something I like even more than this lotion and therefore will not be repurchasing right now.

Pai Eye Cream - review here - this little tube lasted me a few months, which is very surprising.  I really enjoy it and have already repurchased.

Pretty Bath Salts - review here - I love the smell of these bath salts and enjoy how they make my body and skin feel, but I won't repurchase unless I'm planning on taking a bath.  I don't like baths and take maybe one a year.  If you're a bath lover, I highly recommend you try these out!

Andalou Mandarin Vanilla Body Lotion - review here - I love the scent of this body lotion but I will not be repurchasing because I just didn't love the lotion itself. 

Pangea Lavender Body Wash - review here - This is a fantastic body wash.  The scent is so lovely, it lathers nicely and leaves my skin so hydrated.  I will be repurchasing at some point.

Burt's Bees Body Lotion - review here - Great product for my hands and body but horrible scent.  I will not be repurchasing.

Kiss My Face Toothpaste - review here - I already have a new tube but am open to suggestions on toothpastes.  This tube lasts about a month which is sad because it's so expensive.  I do love it though!

Sukin Toner - review here - I adore this toner for setting my makeup!  I recently realized that my whole Sukin travel set had expired in September except for this toner (expired this month).  Everything was pretty much full, except the toner.  I contacted the company to let them know, just because I didn't want it happening to others and not because I wanted it to be replaced, but they so graciously replaced my whole set and sent me full size products.  I could not believe how quickly they responded to me and how generous they were.  I will be trying out the products again and giving a full review in a few weeks time.  I have yet to try the cream cleanser though and that is why it is not on my original mini review.

That's it, I'm done.  Geez, I'm almost embarrassed at how many products I had in my collection. 

What have you finished this month!?


  1. I'm impressed! I think the only thing I finished this month was a shower gel

    1. Thank you, thank you! Lol. You still finished something, which is great!


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
