Winter Empties

What empties did I accumulate by the end of winter? Let's see...

Benefit They're Real Mascara (sample size)
The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Gel
Palmer's Olive Body Butter Tub
Lucas' Papaw Ointment
Dirty Works Coconut Body Btter
Nail Tek Foundation II
Sally Hansen Nail Polish Remover
Britney Spears Curious perfume mini size

Benefit They're Real Mascara
If you've seen some of my FOTD/FOTN posts, you'll see I use this a lot! I do love it, but I probably wouldn't actually buy it because it's kind of expensive. I've still got a few sample sizes floating around for now.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Gel
I love TBS, but this did nothing at all. I don't generally have much success with spot treatments so it was wishful thinking. Not repurchasing. Anyone have a recommendation for me?

Palmers Olive Body Butter
Omg. Love! This was sooo good for my skin and smelt amazing. Sadly, the tub version isn't available anymore, but I might try out the lotion form. 

Lucas' Papaw Ointment
One of those handy products to always have around. I do like it, but I think I might go for a petrochemical free alternative now.

Dirty Works Body Butter
Not empty, but I'm over it. I didn't find it to be very hydrating throughout winter and the smell is starting to bother me. 

Nail Tek Foundation II
This stuff is the best! It helps to keep my nails strong, and works an excellent base coat. I've been using it for years and swear by it. It still has a bit left in it but its gone gluggy. Already repurchased 2 bottles.

Sally Hansen Nail Polish Remover
You always see this in my empties! Still have a few bottles stocked up.

Britney Spears Curious perfume
This smells really nice but I probably wouldn't repurchase. I've got way too many other perfumes on the go at the moment. 

That's my empties collection for winter. What did you use up this winter?


  1. I feel the same about the benefit's awesome but not amazing enough for me to splash out the $36 for it.

    Haven't tried the blemish gel but I use the TBS tea tree oil on my spots, usually clears them in a day or two.

    1. I might have to give that a try. I've been getting massive pimples around my temples that hurt really bad :(

  2. I absolutely love Lucas' Paw Paw ointment! I agree, it's a great product to have at the ready. I find that it has the same tendency as bobby pins to miraculously go missing though haha!
    I'm also in the same boat with the Benefit mascara. I've heard so many great things about it, but I can't muster up enough courage to spend the money on it.
