February Empties & Tosses 2016 | uptherollercoaster

End of the month means one thing – a February empties post! I’m really happy with everything I’ve used up this month!

😘 = love (repurchase)
😊 = pretty great (consider repurchasing)
😑 = indifferent (will not repurchase)

Skincare & Body Care

February Empties & Tosses 2016 | uptherollercoaster

Michael Todd Antioxidant Carrot Multivitamin Serum 😑 I wanted to love this serum so much but it just didn’t do much for me. I was using it every day this month to try to see a difference but it just didn’t do it for me.

LUSH Butterbear Bath Bomb 😘 This is a forever favourite, I think. I’ll repurchase this guy again next Christmas!

LUSH Rosy Cheeks Fresh Face Mask 😑 I mean, I liked this mask, but it’s not my favourite LUSH mask. I definitely prefer Catastrophe Cosmetic!

Quo Luxury Cotton Pads 😘 I have purchased soooo many of these. Nice quality, inexpensive, don’t break when I use them – perfect.

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 (toss) 😑 I loved this lip balm a few years ago and when I found it again I was pretty excited, but turns out it went bad. Whomp whomp. It’s a pretty standard petroleum based lip balm though, so I could find less expensive versions if I want one again.

Tea

David’s Tea Forever Nuts Fruit Infusion 😘 One of my favourites! I’ve already repurchased more.

David’s Tea Secret Weapon White Tea 😘 Mmmmm this was so good! It was light and refreshing yet nutty and soothing too. I would definitely repurchase this if it was still available.

David’s Tea Shooting Star Fruit White Tea 😑 This was an okay tea, nice and fruity! I’m pretty sure it was Limited Edition though, so I can’t buy it again.

David’s Tea Buddha’s Blend White Tea (sample) 😘 I rediscovered the tastiness of this tea with this sample and have already bought more! This is a tea Dylan and I both enjoy which is really nice. Apparently I had a thing for white tea this month!

Haircare & Makeup

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Coconut & Exotic Tropical Scent 😘 I know, it’s pretty much a miracle that I didn’t repurchase some COLAB dry shampoo, but I hadn’t tried this scent of Batiste before and I really loved it! It’s not as volumizing as my COLAB but it definitely kept the oil at bay.

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N9 (mini) 😊 This was a mini from a Sephora birthday gift a few years ago and I’m actually kind of gutted that I’ve used this up! It’s the first lipstick I’ve actually used though, so i’m also kind of celebrating.

That’s a pretty tame empties post compared to ones in the past! I’m really happy with how much tea I’ve been using up, I hope to keep up that pace!

  1. So many nice empties! I’m such a huge fan of Batiste and like the Tropical scent for summertime. Too bad Rosy Cheeks let you down- I’m still super eager to try it, as it seems perfect for my oily, sensitive skin!

  2. YAS for using up a lipstick (we will disregard the fact that it’s mini, because that’s still a serious feat)!!!! Butterbear is my most fave ever bath bomb too 🙂

  3. Good job on the lipstick! And yummmm David’s Tea! I just finished Buddha Blend too. I want to try more of their white teas so secret weapon will be on my list!
