  1. HI everyone! It has been about a year since I was on here. THinking about getting a popsugar box this month. Any good codes out there?
  2. How do you use that code?
  3. Ok ladies I haven't posted my empties in a bit so here it goes: Eva NYC Soften Up Conditioner 500 ml - I purchased this online from their website during a black friday sale that was supposedly 70% off but the price came down to the price that it is sold for at Ulta so I am upset about this misleading markup and marketing. The conditioner did make my hair softer but nothing special I couldn't find elsewhere. Eva NYC Clean It Up Shampoo 500 ml - Same as above as far as the outrageous mark up online. I do like the pink color and scent though. Won't repurchase based on principle. Pantene Pro-V Anti-Breakage Shampoo 12.6 fl oz - It took me years to finish this bottle. I mostly used it when I shampoo'd twice if my hair was very dirty with product. I would use this shampoo as the first rinse and follow it with a Keratin shampoo. I may repurchase if on sale. Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream 10 ml - I received this in a Birchbox but it was a very deluxe sized sample and lasted quite some time. I actually saw great results. Skin was firmer and very clear after 2-3 weeks of use. The only thing I did not like was the scent. It was "old lady" smelling if that makes sense. Hope that is not offensive. I have another sample of this so if I continue seeing great results I may repurchase. Go Smile Teeth Whitening Gel 0.5 oz - I got this from Beauty.com. You add a little to your toothpaste and use it in combination to brush your teeth. I use it to maintain my teeth white. I don't see the getting more yellow so it may be working. Probably won't repurchase though since there are so many other whitening products out there that are a bit more affordable. CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion 1 fl oz - I recently had a skin irritation that required a visit to my dermatologist. She recommended this lotion and gave me a sample. It is completely unscented and very mild. I enjoyed it and it worked very well to calm my sensitive skin. I repurchased it at CVS. The full size runs around $15. Marc Jacobs mini lipgloss - unsure of the color but it was a neutral. The container was very sleek and cute but the dispenser make it difficult to get product out. The full size is quite pricey so I don't think I will repurchase. OPI Expert Touch Lacquer Remover 30 ml - I got this as a sample in an OPI nail polish set but would not purchase since I don't really see any difference compared to drug store brand nail polish removers that are a fraction of the price. Malin + Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser 1 fl oz - I received this in a trade and was excited to try it because I love this brand. The cleanser itself was great and very effective but I did not smell much of a grapefruit scent and not sure it would be worth the price compared to other cleansers. Albertini Warm Love Pumpkin Exfoliating Face Mask 0.5 fl oz - I got this in an Ipsy bag. This mask is a bit oily with little granules in it. The surprise is that when you put it on your face it warms up. Feels fun! It is very moisturizing and when you wash it off the granules provide exfoliation. The smell is devine and I am seriously considering purchasing this once I run out of my current masks. Caviar Anti-Aging 3 minute Shine Boost 10 ml packet - I got this in a GWP. You apply it after conditioner and rinse after three minutes. I have a lot of hair so I would need like 5 of these packets for one use. I used it but did not notice a difference in shine or conditioning. Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes 30 pack - I love Yes To products but their face wipes are not very effective. They are very thin and the wet product is not effective at taking make up off. Origins Plantscription SPF 25 Anti-Aging cream foil packet - I love Origins. This is a great face cream and I have the full size. I will likely repurchase this face cream many times. They have the night version as well. WHEN Travelmate Sheet Face Mask - I love sheet masks. This one was for moisturizing dry skin. It felt great and felt very refreshing. I may repurchase. Bath and Body Works Banana Nut Bread 3-wick candle. I loved this candle. The smell is perfect for Fall/Winter. Yummmmm! Will repurchase next year. Bath and Body Works Red Velvet Cupcake 6 oz candle - I burned this for February as a Valentines-ish candle. Super yummmm!
  4. I got Karissa, which is a basic red, but just wanted to share my mani with you all. As soon as V-day is over I am going to try London which I got as an add-on. Karissa with some embellishments. I used the striped decals from last month to make a cupids arrow Attached Thumbnails

  6. Ok I haven't posted in a bit but I have some good used up products on my list today. FINISHED A LITER!!! Wohooooo!! AG Hair Cosmetics Color Care Color Savour Conditioner 1 L - I bought this during Beauty Brands liter sale. It retails over $45 but I think I got it for under $10. My hair dresser has been telling me my hair feels great but I honestly think there are better conditioners out there and I did not like that this conditioner was not as moisturizing as I would like. Did save my color though. Moved on to Macadamia products for a change. We shall see. Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar Body Wash 8 fl oz- I love Pacifica products and this one lathered well but the smell was not really coconut-y. I was disappointed in that but will likely repurchase in another scent since I love Pacifica products for the most part. CVS Regular Polish Remover 10 fl oz - I go thru a lot of nail polish remover in an effort to get thru my dozens of polishes. I don't think I see a difference in high end polish removers vs these drugstore brands which are like $1.99 so I will keep buying these. I also enjoy the oily nail polish remover pads that are out now and use those occasionally. Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Latte & Marshmallow Body Lotion 8 fl oz - I absolutely loved this scent. I don't really love B&BW lotions because I find that they are not very moisturizing so I only buy them when it is a scent I absolutely love. I went back to buy more of this scent but they had sold out and I am very much hoping they bring it back this fall. Smells sweet and pumpkin is subtle and also blends well with my sweet perfumes like Prada Candy. Ulta Bronze Glow Tinted Sunless Spray 6 fl oz - Light to Medium. I try to keep up with my faux tan during the winter. It makes me feel good when my legs or arms are showing and they are not pasty white. This is a great sunless tanner because the spray sprays a wide surface and makes it easy to get your upper back and shoulders without needing assistance. The smell is very subtle and the color payout is very natural and excellent after just one use. I have repurchased in the Medium to Dark shade to start prepping for summer. Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat 8 ml full size - I have used up at least 3 of these top coats. It is my go-to top coat. It does cause some shrinkage but I find that if you wait about 5 minutes after your last color coat before applying the top coat, the shrinkage is minimal. This top coat gives a great shiny gloss and really does dry very fast. I use it less than one hour before going to bed and have no problem with my manicure drying or getting wrinkles in the sheets overnight. I have already repurchased. Kinerase Extreme Lift Face with Kinetin 2 ml foil packet - I think this is a face cream based on the directions. It states it is "a temporary alternative to physician administered treatments". Not sure what that means. I liked it ok but did not see too much of a difference with three uses. It is a gel consistency which I do not like as much as cream moisturizers. Not sure I will repurchase. RestoreSea Rejuvenating Day Cream with Vibransea Complex foil packet - I liked this face cream. The scent was mild and it mixed well with my makeup routine. Nothing major to say with just a foil packet sample. GrandCentral Beauty S.M.A.R.T. Skin Perfecting Polisher 6 ml - I got this in a Birchbox. It seems to be a face scrub but I did not feel much of a scrub in it at all. The consistency is of a gel and it is clear and a little lumpy. Smell is horrible. Kinda acidic smell. I don't think it did much to my face at all. I had to follow it up with a face wash because in and of itself it does not remove makeup or lather. I have another sample of it and will probably give it away if I find it. Will not repurchase. SeaRx AntiWrinkle Creme deluxe sample - I received this from Birchbox. I did not like the scent or consistency of this face cream. It was a little lumpy and not very moisturizing. I will not be repurchasing. Minus 417 Hand Cream 3.4 oz - I got this in a GWP from Beauty.com. I really loved it for the office. It really moisturized my hands but did not give me a super greasy feel so I found it easy to keep touching papers and typing without leaving greasy prints everywhere. The smell was very pleasant and mild. May repurchase once I get thru so many of my hand cream samples. Kiehls Cucumber Alcohol Free Toner 16.9 fl oz. - I love this toner and have been using it for years. The scent is lovely and it is alcohol free so it is less drying than alcohol toners. I use it in the morning to remove any last bit of makeup that may have been left and to freshen my face if I don't want to wash my face. I also use it after showering and washing my face before applying my moisturizer/serum routine. I have repurchased this in the 8.4 fl oz size so that I can travel with it a bit more easily. Kiehls Rosa Artica Youth Regenerating Cream 2.5 fl. oz. - I absolutely loved this face cream. The smell is devine. The results are actually noticeable after a few weeks. I saw less redness, discoloration and a more plump appearance. I have a deluxe sample size I am currently using but will repurchase this in the future in a full size. Kiehls Ultra Moisturizing Face Cream with Scrub Particles full size - This product has been discontinued. I started using it over 10 years ago and loved it then but found so many new face scrubs that work better over the past few years and this one got pushed to the background. I found it left a residue on my face and the scrub particles were not very fine or effective. It is funny how your "tried and true" products of 10 years ago change as you troubleshoot your beauty regimen. NOTE: Don't forget to take your empties to Origins. They accept ANY beauty or skin careempties as part of their recycling program and will give you Origins deluxe samples to try in exchange. Kiehls also has a recycling program. Bring in 10 empty Kiehl's full size bottles and receive a travel size item free. They give you a stamp card to keep track of each of the empty bottles you bring in. How is everyone else doing with their empties this month?
