Flash Empties Round Deux

With 2017 right around the corner, I'm trying to do a little bit of housekeeping-- in real life and on the blog. That includes clearing out trash mountain to the best of my abilities. During blogmas I did my first round of flash empties and today I'm going at it again with round two.

If you're wondering what flash empties are, they're one sentence reviews on my empties. Bada bing bada boom!

P.s if you didn't know, I'm running a giveaway at the moment! You can find the full prize details in my previous post and enter in the widget down below.


Will Repurchase
Up & Up T Plus Therapeutic Shampoo
This is the generic Target version of Neutrogena's T-gel and it works just as well at getting rid of my dandruff (it also has a very similar formula); the major downside is that it's just as drying as T-gel 😒 .

Shiseido Facial Cotton
I used to be the person who laughed at fools who spent almost $10 on cotton but now I use it on the reg and will never go back-- so soft 😍

Muji Facial Cut Cotton
Basically the same thing as the Shiseido Cotton but it's a bit thicker and a lot cheaper. (The one I linked is the unbleached version but I usually buy the bleached version in stores where it's also cheaper.)

Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara
A very wet and cheap formula that works great at defining the lashes on my lower lash line (and I can forgive the shitty packaging since it literally only costs $2.50 when on sale.)

Dove Clinical Protection Cool Essentials Deodorant
It's a clear gel deodorant that's actually a clear gel plus it keeps da stink at bay.

Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
My lips are too dark for the pink vaseline to actually show up but damn that won't stop me from continuing to use and repurchase it (although I prefer the round tin to this mini tub.)

Bath & Body Works PocketBacs in 'Crisp Morning Air' and 'Sunlight & Apple Trees'
Crisp Morning Air is one of my favorite Bath & Body Works scents so I'm a bit bummed it only comes around in the autumn-- the apple one is nice too.

Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Since Urban Decay keeps changing the packaging on their primer potion, I keep purchasing the old tubes on clearance...although I shouldn't because they literally last forever and the only reason I'm throwing this one out is because it started to turn funky but it still worked hella well at keeping my eyeshadow in place all day long and I know this is a run on sentence but I gotta lot of shit to say so.



Maybe Repurchase
Tweezerman Classic Lash Curler
This guy works reasonably well but the shape isn't the best for my eyes since it can't curl my outermost lashes.

Jason Dandruff Relief Treatment Shampoo
The gentles dandruff shampoo I've ever used as it is SLS free, but unforuntately it doesn't work as well at combating dandruff as the hair stripping stuff (like T-gel.)

Laneige Water Bank Serum
Hydrating, feels nice on the skin, and has a wonderful scent but there are more hydrating serums out there.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
Helps dry out whiteheads but at the same time doesn't last all night long since I move around a lot in my sleep 🙈.

Peter Thomas Roth Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizer
This is a really lovely lightweight moisturizer with a wonderful airless pump packaging buuut it's also kinda pricey for a lightweight moisturizer so I may or may not purchase it.



Will Not Repurchase
Origins Maskimizer Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer
It's funny how much marketing impacts the success of a product because ingredient wise this stuff is similar to Mac Fix+ but it was marketed as such a weird item that it got negative reviews and as I'm writing this now I'm considering moving it over to the maybe repurchase category 🤔.

Garnier Texture Tease Dry Touch Finishing Spray
This is supposed to be a dupe for the Oribe Beach but I'm not repurchasing it because it makes my hair too sticky and leaves an unpleasant white residue if I use too much...which I do most times (although it does add texture too.)

Philosophy Kiss Me
Too pricey for what it does...and it's discontinued.
