Random Empties

Hey All!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my empties. However, I have been taking note and keeping some of them. These are the ones that I’ve remembered to keep over the past few months. I figured I’d share and give my opinion on some of them!


First we’ll start with some hair products. There are a bunch of samples that I’ve remembered to keep to talk about that I’ve used while travelling over the past few months! Let’s get into these!!

Hair Products


About the Product:
TRESemme Expert Selection

Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner
Size: 10 ml each

I’ll be honest. I never really liked TRESemme products in the past. I’m not sure if what I am looking for has changed or if the formula of the product has changed but I really loved this product. It smells great! It leaves my hair feeling full, soft and silky, and with less frizz the normal. I’ll definitely be considering purchasing TRESemme products in the future after I work my way through the abundance of products I have accumulated!


About the Product:
Dove Advanced Hair Series
Quench Absolute Shampoo and Conditioner
Size: 9 ml

For dry, wavy, curly hair.
Perfectly Nourished Hair and 72 hr manageability.

I remember using Dove products years ago and loving them. Then there came a point where it just didn’t work with my hair. However, I did find these products great to use when using this sample. However, I’m not sure how well it will work with my hair being used day after day. Maybe I’ll give it a try in the future!


About the Product:
Aveeno Active Naturals
Positively Nurishing Shampoo and Conditioner
Size: 9 ml

Nourishing wheat complex and oat protein.
Smoothes dry, damaged hair

Scientific studies show that just three washes help repair damage, giving hair life with strength, softness, and shine. This exclusive formula is designed to replenish moisture, targeting the weakest parts of your hair with fortifying protein.

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Moisturize Shampoo does much more than nourish and cleanse – it bathes the driest hair with a fusion of gentle moisturizers, giving hair silky new life.

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Moisturize Conditioner does much more than nourish and condition – it quenches the driest hair with a fusion of gentle moisturizers, giving hair silky new life.

I’ve had numerous samples of this product and each time I have had a great experience. It left my hair smooth and shiny. It is something I’d definitely consider buying in the future.


About the Product:
Garnier Fructis Full & Plush
Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner
Size: 10 ml each

For Fuller, Thicker hair

I love many of the Garnier products that I have tried in the past and this one didn’t let me down either. I often buy Garnier products when I am in need of a change. In general these products smell great. They leave my hair feeling soft and silky smooth and easy to manage. What more can you ask for? I’ll definitely keep this one in mind for the future.


About the Product:
Pantene Pro-V Sheer Volume
Shampoo and Conditioner
Size: 50 ml (1.7 fl oz) each

Weightless shampoo and conditioner

Again, I’ve always enjoyed using Pantene products. This was my go-to product for years during my younger years (hahaha). This was another product that I enjoyed and will probably purchase in the future.


About the Product:
L’Oreal Paris
Hair Expertise Total Repair Shampoo
Size: 385 ml

Repaired as if new
5 Problems, 1 Solution
– Strength
– Density
– Vitality
– Shine
– Silkiness

Total Repair 5 helps repair 5 signs of damaged hair. From daily brushing or styling, hair can become fine, fragile, dull or rough with split ends. Help repair 5 types of damaged hair without weighing it down.

I discovered the L’Oreal lines of shampoo after receiving one to review. Since then this has replaced Herbal Essences as my number one brand. I have tried various different types since and love them all. It leaves my hair feeling fuller/thicker, smooth, easy to manage, and easy to brush (which is often a daily struggle for me). I have one backup to use and will probably repurchase afterwards.
Note: There was actually a commercial for this product on the TV as I wrote this!


About the Product:
Herbal Essences
Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse
Size: 192 g x2

Scrunch away for weightless, touchable curls all day.
Made with mixed berry essences.
All day frizz control

Boost your curls’ bounce with every ounce of this miraculously light mousse, designed to pump up luscious curls and protect the waves you crave from humidity. Keep your style in line as you charm your senses, and your admirers, with our sparkling mixed berry fragrance.

This is the mousse that works the best in my hair (and I have tried numerous types and brands). I just recently repurchased another one of these. It works great in keeping my curls in tack and keeping the frizz semi under control!


About the Product:
Garnier Nutrisse Cream
Nourishing Colour Cream
Size: 1 application
Color: 535 Medium Golden Mahogany Brown

100% Grey Coverage

Rich, Long-Lasting Colour: This exclusive colour cream is specially formulated to give your hair a rich, radiant, healthy-looking color, while providing 100% grey coverage, even on your most stubborn grays.

Pleasant Colouring Experience: The rich, non-drip cream formula is so easy to work through your hair. Indulge in the fresh and fruity fragrance while it nourishes each and every strand of hair.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll realize that this is my go-to hair dye and a product I’ve repurchased many times. It leaves my hair feeling soft and full of life. It is definitely a product I’ll repurchase again and again. This is an empty from the beginning of June (before my Vegas trip). I normally use a darker dye but decided to go a bit lighter since I was travelling to a warmer climate. I actually really liked the color that it left my hair. It was still a dark color but you could see more of the brown coming through. Since it has a faded a little it is a nice golden brown. I need my hair done again real soon and may consider this color again.


Body Care:

About the Product:
Secret Clear Gel Antiperspirant
Size: 45 g
Scent: ooh-la-la Lavender

The Secret Clear Gel products have been a holy grail product for me for a while now. I prefer the gels over the powders. However, I wasn’t a big fan of this scent when I first purchased it. However, I received two mini versions of this antiperspirant in this scent to review and I ended up really enjoying it. Since then this has been a repurchase. I find that it leaves a fresh scent and it actually works.


About the Product:
Softsoap Moisturizing Body Wash
Size: 523 g
Scent: Juicy Pomegranate & Mango Infusions

Delight your senses with this moisturizing body wash enriched with natural extracts of pomegranate and mango. This moisture-brand formual provides a healthy clean you can feel, while its crisp, exotic fragrance will leave your energized and ready to take on the world.
Dermatologist-tested soap free formula.

This is a product I’ve had for a number of years and found in a container from when I moved (about four years ago haha). Since the product didn’t seem like it was gone bad, I used it as a bubble bath. I really enjoyed the freshness of the product and the scent it gave the room during the baths. However, this is not a product I plan to buy anytime in the near future.


About the Product:
Skintimate Signature Scents
Moisturizing Shave Gel
Size: 7 oz / 198 g
Scent: Island Berry Breeze

Skintimate Signature Scents Island Berry Breeze Moisturizing Shave Gel combines a luscious fragrance of island berries with 6 moisturizers, including Vitamin E and Olive Butter, and helps replenish skin’s natural moisture while providing unbeatable razor for a close, comfortable shave and healthy feeling, smooth skin.

I absolutely love this shave gel. I am partial to the shave gels over the shave creams in general but the Skintimate brand is my favorite. It leaves my legs feeling silky smooth and without any irritation. And I absolutely loved this scent. It isn’t overpowering and that is definitely something I look for in a product such as this.

Oral Care Products:


About the Product:
Aquafresh Sensitive Toothpaste
Size: 100 ml x2

• Toothpaste for sensitive teeth and cavity protection
• Removes plague
• Fights cavities
• Freshens breath

Aquafresh Sensitive toothpaste targets the source of sensitive teeth pain. Its special formula soothes the nerves so that with regular use, you can once again enjoy your favourite foods without the nagging pain of sensitive teeth. Talk to your dentist or hygienist about tooth sensitivity and Aquafresh Sensitive.

Anyone who has read any of the past empties will definitely know that this is the only brand of toothpaste I use. I am fine with any of the types this brand offers but the boyfriend needs the sensitive for his teeth. It is just easier to buy the sensitive version. I’ll definitely repurchase this and usually have a backup or two in my stash.


Random Products:


** I  forgot to take a picture of the other products so they can be found in this picture of all the products! There are a couple here that I am just discarding or giving away. I may have shown these before but they were still in the pile…. oops **


About the Product:
Bath and Body Works Home Scented Candle
Size: 170 g / 6 oz
Scent: Pumpkin Apple

I enjoy most of the Fall scents that Bath and Body Works offers. This candle was no exception. This one is from a few years back so I am not sure if you can still get this scent.


About the Product:
Bath & Body Works Scented Candle
Size: 36 g / 1.3 oz
Scent: Caribbean Escape

I really enjoyed this scent. It seemed to have a hint of coconut which I enjoy. However it should be noted that this candle is from a few years back and I am not sure if you can still get this scent. It was definitely a Summer scent.


About the Product:
Bath & Body Works Home Wallflowers
Size: 24 ml / 0.8 fl oz
Scent: Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin

An inviting mixture of harvest pumpkin, sweet vanilla cream and cinnamon stick.

Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin is one of my favorite Fall scents from Bath and Body Works. It just reminds me of a warm, inviting house on a chilly Fall evening. I’ll definitely repurchase this scent in the future.


About the Product:

Scent: Mistletoe

I wasn’t a big fan of this scent. It left a lingering smell in the house that the boyfriend would complain about every time I had a bath using this product. I often break up my Lush bath bombs for multiple uses because I don’t have a Lush store near me. I definitely will not be repurchasing this scent.


The following products are just products I am throwing out/giving away.

Pure Spa Hydrating Foot Lotion
Size: 150 ml / 5.1 fl oz
Scent: Peppermint


Indulge in Beauty Lipbalm
Size: 21 g
Scent: Mango Madness


Well these are the empties that I’ve remembered to keep over the past little while. I am hoping to get back to doing these monthly again.

If you have any empties posts leave the in the comments below. I’d love to see what products you are loving and what products I should avoid!

Until next time!
