January Empties!

My last empties post was in November, so I have accumulated quite a few things. Luckily for me, using up products is just as rewarding as getting them. So here I am - January Empties.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula
I use this as my everyday moisturizer. I'm pretty sure this is my second bottle of this stuff, and now I'm on my third (and I even bought the big mama!) Thick and delicious (don't worry, I'm not eating the stuff) - not to mention luxurious.

Burt's Bees Almond Milk Hand Creme
I really liked this at first, but I soon realized that although it smelled really good in the pot, once you rubbed it in, it smelled terrible. It's kind of hard to describe, but I don't think I'll be repurchasing this. I did buy the banana one, though, and I think I like it!

LUSH "Honey I Washed the Kids" Soap
I adored this when I first got it, and I still have for a while, but it's gotten to a point where I just can't use it anymore because it's so small.

Rodial Dragons Blood Sculpting Gel
Interesting name....honestly, I didn't notice a difference in plumping or anything it was "supposed" to do. Oh well!

Boscia Black Hydration Gel
This was actually quite nice! Unfortunately, I think my skin is just too dry to get along with just this, but I think this would be perfect for those with more oily skin. One thing - I didn't actually finish the sample because of the...scent.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal
I've heard a lot about the Becca Skin Perfectors, so when I sample landed at my door, I was more than ecstatic. I actually loved this so much, but it is just so expensive! That being said, this was pigmented enough on my - huhumm - pale skin, that I used this as blush. When I finished it, I was in search of an actual blush that was the same color - and then I found NARS Lustre. Enough said.http://test.skimlinks.com

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion
I was using this as my day face lotion and it was...nice. Kind of your typical lotion.

Estée Lauder Serums
So far I've used up Idealist and Advanced Night Repair. I don't feel like I can say too much about these because the sample just wasn't big enough. I've heard amazing things about these though (well, actually just Advanced Night Repair).

Benta Berry Face Creme
I got these in my Birchbox and I liked them. They were a really good supplement to my daily moisturizer to put on dry spots on my combination skin.

That's it! I think probably another month and I will have accumulated more empties (not a surprise). Does anyone else get a (weird, weird) satisfaction after using up products? Eh, it's probably just me...
