Summer Empties! Hair, body and skincare products

I can't believe it's the end of August already! This summer just flew by.

I'm not good with writing empties posts, simply because I never save up the bottles of the products I use up. I also throw out my empties almost immediately, so I never remember to keep them either.

But anyway, I managed to accumulate a few empties through the summer. Unfortunately, I threw out a few things already, but I still managed to keep most of them. This includes empties for June and July also! I definitely brought way too many products with me this summer, as I didn't even touch a lot of my back ups.



I'll start with the hair products:

Memebox: Superbox #46 IOPE Box 1 Unboxing

I'm developing a problem you guys... I have Memebox acquisition syndrome. I can't stop buying these boxes!

I'm eyeing the Lipstick Superbox right now. I received an email a couple weeks back from Memebox, asking me to take a survey for them. A few of my suggestions included an all IOPE box and all lipstick or lips box. BEHOLD!! Memebox answered and here I am throwing my money at the screen.

I purchased IOPE Box 1 instead of the 2nd one, because I already have their BB Cushion. Also the shade would have been too light for my skin. Back in high school, I purchased a lighter colours shade once... it was not a good time.


But anyway, let's take a look at what I received!

Mint Julips Lip Scrub Review from Lush Cosmetics

Aaand I'm back! I'm typing this post whilst at work! Shhh... I have some down time right now, so at least I'm staying busy!

Sticking to the lip review theme from before, I finally bought the famous Lush lip scrub!
For those of you not familiar with Lush, they're a company that makes products completely by hand, and using/buying ingredients that "do not conduct or commission tests on animals and testing products on humans".
They also only use vegetarian products and some of them, including the lip scrub is gluten free!


Previously, I had only ever tried their bath products. Bath bombs are good, but I especially love The Comforter bubble bar. SO MANY BUBBLES!! I'll have to purchase it again sometime-and you should try it too!

I know what some of you may be thinking, 'sugar scrub? Could have just made one at home!' Yes, that is true. I definitely could have. Considering how I've only used this a handful of times, I should have made one myself. But I can't make my lip scrub smell as good!
At the time when I was in the store, I was planning on buying bubble gum. A friend of mine recommended that one to me.  But in the end, mint chocolate smelt the most appealing.

So let's see if it was worth the purchase!

Memebox Global #12 Unboxing!

Hello everyone!
I am back with another Memebox haul, and I'm super excited about it! I've already begun using some of the products.

I have acquired an unhealthy addiction to this site. I'm always tempted to buy the new released they come out with. The new Iope Superbox, I want it so damn badly!! Someone please restrain me, or I WILL spend my entire paycheck on this website.


But I mean, can you blame me? The boxes are so affordable, you get at least 3 full sized items and deluxe samples... The box is just great!

Anyway, let's take a look at what I received from this box:

Smith's Rosebud Salve Review

Hello hello! I've been rather M.I.A lately. I went on a week vacation at the end of June, and when I came back, the internet was down >< story of my life.
On the bright side, I was able to watch the Canada Day fireworks from my window at home. Hope everyone had a good Canada Day and 4th of July!

On my vacation, I went on a little shopping rampage. Mostly for dried food, though I did make some really exciting purchases!
One of them, being Smith's Rosebud Salve. I've heard a lot of good things about this product. I don't have a Sephora back in my hometown or anywhere close to where I'm working this summer either. I stopped by Sephora while on my vacation, and I decided to pick this lip salve up.


Though I'm not really a huge fan of lip balms where I have to use my fingers to apply, (less sanitary) but with everyone recommending this, I figured I'd give it a try.

Memebox - Luckybox #5 Unboxing

I'm about 2 weeks late with this post, as I received this package a while ago. But better late than never right?

I hadn't heard of Memebox until end of April or so. I read about it from a fellow blogger. I love the concept of receiving a number of different skincare and makeup items to try out. Similar to Glossybox or Ipsy, Birchbox etc. I find Memebox to be far more superior. Not only do you get some full sized items and deluxe samples, all products are solely Korean. 
Granted, you are paying a lot more than $10 for Ipsy or Birchbox, Memebox gets you more 'bang' for your buck. You also have the chance to choose which box you want and interests you the most, whereas the other monthly boxes, you are subscribed to a monthly service and some of them are a hit and a miss. 

Anyway, onto Memebox haul. I ended up ordering Luckybox #5. 


Let's take a further look at my goodies!

Broadway - imPress Press-on Manicure Nail Review

Hello hello! As you may know, I have settled into my new place for the summer. Work hasn't been too busy, and I have been shopping way too much for my own good. When the days are slow, I browse different clothing websites. I buy more than I can use, but regardless, I still buy more and just hoard it in my room. Eventually, I will become a hoarder. A crazy cat lady AND a hoarder. 

Well anyway, I signed up with this community called influenster. It's a website where a variety of people post their reviews and experiences on different products. Every time you write a post, you build up points towards not only your social media presence, but also particular badges you can unlock on your profile. The more reviews you write, the higher your influence will be. 
I was lucky enough to be eligible for the imPress Manicures by Broadway. They sent me two of their products to review.



The imPress Manicures boast:
  • No drying time
  • Superior lasting shine
  • Easy removal
  • Lasts up to a week
  • Salon results
Let's see if they do just that!
