Empties Reviews: September & October 2015 | Health & Beauty

Thursday, November 12, 2015

It is finally Empties Review time once again!  If you aren't familiar with what this is, I basically save all my health and beauty trash from products that I have completely used up.  Then, I give mini reviews for each of the products and tell y'all if I would repurchase them or not.

Full product list (with short text reviews if you are pressed for time), as well as, the video are in the post below:

1.  I received this in an awesome friend mail from Trisha Fernandes. You can check out her youtube channel HERE.  This didn't bias my review in any way.


My opinions are based on my experience with these particular products.  Your experience may vary and blah, blah, and le blah.
