July Empties: Finished an Eyeliner


Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense - 03 Intense Chocolate
This is the first time I have ever finished an eyeliner! I have really gotten into just wearing a subtle cat eye with a Summery lip and this is THE.BEST.EYELINER! It is intense (as the name would suggest) and once it sets it doesn't budge. The twist up liner has quickly become my favorite because it's so easy, no tools required. Plus, at $16.00, it's not super expensive. I will be checking out the Intense Midnight and Intense Amethyst in the VERY near future!

M.A.C Zoom Lash
I held onto this sample as long as I could, but I did purchase the full size - so I think it's fair to say I liked it!

Crystal Body Deodorant Towelette
I am on the hunt for a good non-toxic natural deodorant that works. I got this sample recently and gave it a go. I thought it was going to be a strange experience, but the soft cloth was unscented, not overly damp, and non-sticky. I really liked it. I am currently trying the Lavanila Healthy Deodorant, so we shall see how that goes.

Origins Make A Difference Rejuvenating Cleansing Milk
If you've watched my Warm Weather Morning Skincare Routine, you will have seen this in action. I love this cleanser for the Summer months. It is light but still nourishing, and never leaves me feeling dry and stripped. I just massage into dry skin and wipe off with a warm damp wash cloth. It last ages too, so the $23.50 price tag is totally worth it. I've already got a new one on the go!

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster
Another product demonstrated in my Warm Weather Morning Skincare Routine. This smells amazing! Like oranges - which is perfect for the Summer time. It is super refreshing on the skin in the morning and I really do notice when I don't use it. Again, it lasts for a long time, so the price really is worth it. I am on my second bottle of it and I plan to repurchase in the future.

Soap & Glory Foam Call Dual-Use Shower & Bath Body Wash
I won't bang on about this stuff, but I love it and I will repurchase, but next time I'm going for the original scent because I loves it!

Skintimate SkinTherapy Moisturizing Shave Gel for Sensitive Skin
This stuff has probably been in every single empties post, so I probably don't need to explain. It's a shave gel. It's for sensitive skin. One of my faves. Check it out!

Garnier Fructis Fortifying Conditioner for Color Treated Hair
Shampoo and Conditioner are not generally things I put a whole lot of thought into. If it's on sale or if I have a coupon I will buy it. I have been this way for years...until now. I have been doing the reverse shampoo thing lately, which is where you condition your hair first and then shampoo. I have been doing this for about 3 months and I am really happy with the results. I still only shampoo at most every other day and it works for me. Because of this new trend, I have been much more conscious of what I use on my hair. I am planning to try some more natural products moving forward, and even some cleansing conditioners. Any recommendations?!

Harney & Sons Royal Wedding Tea
Yet another item you have seen in most empties posts, therefore I won't go into detail about. If you like tea, or even if you don't - go try Harney & Sons. It's the best. True story. What are you waiting for! Go get some!

As a bonus, I also wanted to mention that I finished off a Fresh Sugar Lemon Soap. I didn't have the packaging to show you because I got it months ago for my Birthday from my sister. This is THE holy grail of bath soap! It smells so good I could eat it. It feels amazing on the skin. And it is THE biggest bar of soap I have ever used. It lasted forever, even with my hubby and 2 kids using it daily. I know $13.00 is kinda steep for a bar of soap, but this is everything I want in a soap. If I could only have one type of soap for the rest of my life, this would be it! I would carry it around with me just to sniff all day. This is the scent I want piped into my household ventilation system all the time. Can you tell I'm in love? I digress, but I do highly recommend this soap if you like the smell of lemons. *daydreams about more Fresh Sugar Lemon Soap*

Well, now that I am very tempted to place a huge order with Fresh consisting only of Lemon Soap, I will leave you to it. Don't forget to leave me your natural and/or cleansing conditioner recommendations. Thanks you lovely people!
