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:

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