February Empties

Another "brrrrrrr" month has gone and we are closer to spring(wishful thinking :). With the bitter cold weather and heat turned on high inside, I grab hand cream constantly and finished 2 this month.

Glysomed Hand Cream
Soap & Glory Hand Food
Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit Healthy Deodorant
Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
Dior Creme de Rose lip balm
Olay Regenerist Luminous Moisturizer
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Biotherm Blue Therapy Serum-in-Oil
Bath & Body Works Mint Mocha Bark 3 -Wick Candle
Spiced Latte Candle
Yankee Candle Chocolate Peppermint Candle

Glysomed and Soap & Glory Hand Food are two staple hand cream in my collection. They are probably the most moisturizing hand cream I have tried. There are other brands I have used before but they don't last long on my dried and chapped hands. 

Three other staples used up this month are Lavanila Healthy Deodorant, Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover and Dior Creme de Rose. I didn't quite understand the hype about the pricey Dior lip balm before but since I started using that last year, I could not rely on other lip balms. This is pricey but it lasts me a good 6 months so I could totally justify on the splurge.

I have used Olay Regenerist moisturizers for years. This has got to be the best drug-store moisturizer. With the price, it beats a lot of high end moisturizers I have tried. This luminous version is my first one and I like this better than the regular one. It gives your skin a more luminous finish which I love.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance is a deluxe sample size I got from one of the Too Faced gift set. This is quite a good eyeshadow primer but I still prefer my Urban Decay primer potion. I just find it applies easier.

Biotherm Blue Therapy Serum-in-Oil is another deluxe sample I have used. I haven't tried a lot of Biotherm products and I enjoy this serum. This has a bit of fragrance which I am not a huge fan but can deal with it. I apply this in the morning before my moisturizer.

3 candles I have finished this month. These are all Christmas-scented ones. As you could tell, I love peppermint and chocolate scented ones. This is my first Yankee candle I have used up. This is not as scented as my other Bath and Body Works ones but they last a long time and the scent is subtle.

What have you finished using up this month?


  1. Ooh I wanna try that deodorant! And the Dior lip balm has been on my wish list for awhile, will probably get it when the VIB sale comes. I used up a few deluxe samples this month, feels good to pare down

    1. I have been using the healthy deodorant for a while and it works good and I love the scent. I can't wait till the VIB sale. I need to get a backup for the Dior creme de rose and a few staples.

  2. I'm burning the BBW mint mocha bark candle right now haha! Oooh I swipe on the dior lipbalm whenver I go to sephora but i haven't justified the price yet! Nice empties :)

  3. I haven't tried any of these but have heard so much about the Yankee Candles.

  4. olay regenerist <3 going to try the one you recommended when my jar is used up. oh and pls if you can make a detailed review on the creme de rose. ive been eyeing that lip balm for ages but im hesitant cause of the price... and the rosey scent!

  5. LOVE Soap & Glory's Hand Food, it smells so amazing! Will be definitely trying some other of your empties :)
