1. Gillette Satin Care Passionista Fruit Shave Gel (7 FL OZ)
I actually bought this in a duo pack, and I really enjoyed it. I used to only use Skintimate, but I am starting to like the Satin Care line more. I did like this, but it’s shaving cream, so there’s not too much to say. I bought this at Target in a duo pack for around $5.00 USD, which would equal out to about the same price as buying two by themselves, but it did come with an extra travel size one, so I thought it was a decent deal for something I need anyways.
2. Huggie’s Simply Clean (64 WIPES)
I use these for just wiping my face off after I use masks, or oily makeup remover and to wipe off swatches, so I go through a lot of baby wipes. I did like these, but I prefer the Pamper’s ones for sensitive skin, so I probably won’t repurchase this.
3. Philip Kingsley Moisture Extreme Conditioner (6.76 FL OZ)
I received this as a PR sample, and it retails for $28.70 USD. I did like this. I do believe it was made for ethnic hair types, but I received two bottles so Kylor and I used one, and my mom and her husband used one, and we all liked it well enough. I probably wouldn’t repurchase this just because of the price, but it did make my thick hair really soft, which was nice:)
4. Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser (4.2 FL OZ)
This was also a PR sample, and it retails for $45.00 USD. I really wasn’t a huge fan of this face wash and neither was Kylor. I ended up not using it after about a week because it was too runny and too oily. I really didn’t feel like it did a great job at cleansing my skin, and for 45 bucks a pop, I definitely won’t be repurchasing this.
5. Stages of Beauty The Radiance Facial Scrub (2 FL OZ)
This one was another PR sample, and while I did like it, I went through it way too quickly, so that was kind of disappointing. I did like it, but I do like for my scrubs to be a bit more grain-y than this one was, so it’s definitely not my favorite scrub, but I might repurchase it again when I hit the next Stages of Beauty collection.
5. Jack Black Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser with Aloe & Sage Leaf (3 FL OZ)
This was a PR sample, and I loved it. It smells great, you get a really nice “tough guy” musky smell. I really wish I had a bigger size of this because both Kylor and I really enjoyed it, so I probably will repurchase the big size of this (6 OZ).
6. Murad Clarifying Cleanser (2 FL OZ)
I received this in my June 2012 Sample Society and Kylor and I used it immediately. I do like the Murad brand, I actually just got a couple more deluxe sample sizes (June Collective Haul! :D ) I do think this was a very nice face wash, and while I wanted to be really excited about it, I don’t know if I would repurchase the full-size, but I guess we’ll see.
7. SkinnyGirl Vitamin C Face Scrub (1 FL OZ)
This was a PR sample and came in a set of Skinnygirl products (available at Walmart). I really wish I could say good things about this, but when I went to use it, the top came open and the entire bottle exploded out of the top. It got all over Kylor and he really wasn’t a happy camper, so I really can’t give my opinion on this:(
8. Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Cleanser (0.5 FL OZ)
I do believe I received this in a sample subscription service, I’m just not too sure which one. But, what I am sure about it there is no way in Hell that I will be repurchasing this. It came out the color of mud/dirt and was runny and disgusting. It smelled terrible and I made Kylor finish it because it was too gross for me to use, and he’s a guy, so:) But, I really wasn’t pleased with this product at all. :(
9. Sephora Age Defy Moisture Cream SPF 15 (0.169 FL OZ)
I received this in the Sephora Sun Safety kit, and I did really like it. I mixed this with an argan oil, and I did like how creamy it was. It was also very thick, though, which for whatever reason just makes me feel like my pores are being clogged. I’m not sure. Anyways, I did enjoy this and I might repurchase the full size sometime later.
10. CellCeuticals Skin Care NeoCell Micro-Resurfacing Skin Treatment (0.33 FL OZ)
I received this in a Beauty Army a while back, and I don’t remember why I picked this. I think I just needed an extra sample, so I chose this. I think it was okay, but I didn’t really get to try it out very much, so I really don’t wanna give my opinion until I can try it out a bit more.
11. Murad T-Zone Pore Refining Gel (0.125 FL OZ)
I used this as a moisturizer before I went to bed at night and this little tiny sample actually lasted me 4-5 days, so I was pleasantly surprised with this. I did enjoy it, I always felt my skin was really soft in the morning when I put this on at night, and I would seriously consider repurchasing the full size.
12. StriVectin-SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles (0.25 FL OZ)
I won this from some giveaway like a year ago. This little tube seriously lasted me FOREVER. I loved this stuff. I know it’s pretty expensive, but I really would like to repurchase the full size. I highly recommend this as an anti-aging eye cream.
13. Bath and Body Works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel in Christmas Candy (1 FL OZ)
This was part of their Christmas collection, so it’s not available anymore, but I did enjoy it, as I enjoy all of the B&BW hand sanitizers, and this one had a very sweet smell to it. I did like it, but Kylor didn’t. He thought it was too alcohol-smelling :/ Oh well.
14. Bath and Body Works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel in Winter Chiffon (1 FL OZ)
This one is also discontinued, but this was one of my favorite scents from the Christmas collection. I loved it, it smelled so sweet and delicious and so warm and cozy<3
15. Ulta Anti-Bacterial Gel in Lavender Woods (1 FL OZ)
These are twice the price of the B&BW ones and the same size, so I automatically prefer the B&BW ones. I do like these (I have 3 other ones), but they are a bit runny and I always seem to get more than I need. I do like the scent, though. I am starting to like more and more Lavender scents.
17. Almay Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads – Travel Size (15 PADS)
I purchased these at Ulta.com for $1.29 USD. I did like these, but I went through them so quickly because I had to use soooo many to take off my makeup at the end of the day. I have another one of these, not in oil-free and the full-size, but I haven’t used them yet, so we’ll see how I like those, but I probably wouldn’t repurchase the oil-free ones.
18. L’Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Primer Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer (1-time use)
See below – I used up two more of these later in the month!
19. Andre Walker Hair Keratin Shampoo (10.14 FL OZ)
This was also a PR sample, along with the matching shampoo that I used up quite awhile ago. I did like it, but because I ran out of the conditioner so soon before I ran out of the shampoo, and I really don’t like using shampoos without matching conditioners, so Kylor finished up this bottle. It is decent, but I really didn’t notice any “hair straightening” miracles. I might repurchase depending on how my hair acts now that I’m done with this bottle.
20. Skinnygirl Shower Gel in Sangria (6 OZ)
This was a PR sample that came with a few other products, and this did smell really good (Kylor loved it :D), but I really want to try the Margarita scented set, since I love Margaritas, and I’ve never had a Sangria. This did smell really good, and I love the whole Skinnygirl line (for the most part), so I will repurchase this, just in the Margarita scent!
21 & 22. L’Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Primer Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer (1-time use each)
I did a Sample Sunday post on these primers. I do really like them, and they worked really well without my fear of them being shimmery or something coming true. I do really wanna repurchase this in a full-size sooner or later (once I use up all of my other face primers :D )
23. Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener (0.05 FL OZ)
I did a Sample Sunday post on this here. I loved this, and there was SO much in the little sample packet. I really do think that this is a great eye brightener. I got this when I made a purchase on the Smashbox website. I really do want to repurchase the full-size! :D
24. Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30 in Shade 02 (1-time use)
I received this as a free sample at a department store counter. My mom really wanted to try Clinique’s toner since I always rave about it, and I saw they had just come out with their BB Creams, so I asked for a sample and she gave me a little jar of it. The little jar of it actually lasted me a 3-4 days of full-coverage use. I really enjoyed this BB Cream, and I’m definitely going to be purchasing the full-size.
25. Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Powder Foundation SPF 30 in Light/Medium (0.21 OZ)
This was a PR sample, and to be honest I liked it, but I probably wouldn’t repurchase it. It was very powder-y and it always made a huge mess everywhere. I felt like I was using a loose powder. I did like the way it looked on my skin and I loved the packaging and how the product itself looked, but I hated the mess.
These were all PR samples to review. (LOOK OUT FOR THE REVIEW COMING EARLY AUGUST!). I actually have #28 and #29 that I put in de-potting pots so I didn’t waste any product, especially because I love Votre Vu products. I would definitely like to purchase these in the full-size.
30. Gillette Satin Care Passionista Fruit Shave Gel (7 FL OZ)
I really did like this shaving cream. It smelled great. I purchased this at Target in a set of two full-sizes and one travel-size. I would consider repurchasing this for the scent alone, but this definitely gets a thumbs-up from me:)
31. Olay Ultra Moisture Lotion (8.4 FL OZ)
I am honestly really glad to be done with this lotion – not because it isn’t good, I did like it. But, I prefer heavily scented body lotions and I have so many body lotions to go through, that I was just tired of using this one. And, honestly (again), I have no idea where I got this from. I’ve had it for so long that I just don’t remember where it came from. I would consider repurchasing, but I do wish it was a bit more scented.
32. Ouidad Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner (8.5 FL OZ)
This was a PR sample that I was sent, along with the shampoo, and I really like this set. I did feel like my hair was less frizzy. I am still using the shampoo, and I did like them better when I had the set, but even one of the two products are great for hair, in my opinion and experience. I could see myself repurchasing these.
33. Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash (18 FL OZ)
I purchased this at Target because Kylor and I were running out of body washes, and I chose this one specifically because 1. Kylor requested the Caress brand for some reason, and 2. because this is an ‘exfoliating’ body wash, which (to me, anyways), means I can skip exfoliating when I shower with this. I did love this and it smelled soooo good. I would repurchase this, but I would like to try other Caress products, since this was my first one.
34 & 35: DHC Velvet Skin Coat (0.03 OZ, each)
These two aren’t technically empties, since I just de-potted them, but I figured it was kind of an empty, so I included it anyways. I have done a Sample Sunday on these before, I just had some left over samples, so I de-potted them so that they were easier to use. I’ll let you know when I really use them up:)
36. Stila Cosmetics Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Stingray (0.01 OZ)
Ugh. I was so sad to see the end of this! This quickly turned into one of my favorite eyeliners, ever. :) I received this in a set called the “Sephora’s Favorites Sephora’s Bestsellers, which I purchased on Sephora.com. I loved that set, and it’s not available anymore, but you can buy this eyeliner. I really did like this, and I just got another one of these liners in Tetra, which came with the In The Moment palette I just purchased from Birchbox, so I’m hoping that I’ll like that one just as much:)
37. Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 (small jar, unknown size)
This technically isn’t an empty, but I can’t get the cap off anymore, and neither can Kylor. But, there is only about one more use anyways, so I just chalked it up to being an empty. I got this as part of the sample kit that Mario Badescu was offering a while back. I would like to purchase the full-size.
