Empties Review: Replace or Repurchase #5

More things for the trash! Tuesday was Spring Cleaning and today are my empties. There are a lot of things in this batch I would not repurchase. In the meantime, let’s talk about what I’ve used up:

Empties #5 | Bolt Blogs

REPURCHASE | Pantene Hairspray Flexible Hold: I’ve used this hairspray and really like it before. It isn’t anything revolutionary, I normally get whatever is on sale at the drugstore.

REPLACE | Redken Heat Protectant: For this and the Pantene Detangler, I’ve simply found something better. I have one product that combines the two and you can read about it here.

REPLACE | Pantene Detangler: Like I said, found something better. It’s the first product on my list in the link above.

REPLACE | Burt’s Bees Sensitive Night Cream: I have a full review on this product here. I found another Burt’s Bees Night Cream that I like much better and I’ll talk about in my current skincare routine later.

REPLACE | Benefit Instant Comeback Facial Serum: I liked this serum but it is very heavily scented. I don’t mind the scent in the daily moisturizer but I found a serum I like better.

REPURCHASE | e.l.f. Under Eye Primer: Love this stuff! I talk about it more in here.

(would) REPURCHASE | Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes: This is one of the only two high-end mascaras I think are worth the money. Very nice for a splurge mascara.

REPLACE | Dove Dry Shampoo: I liked this up until I started using the Pantene dry shampoo. It smells great but doesn’t do as good of a job absorbing oil.

REPLACE | Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Body Lotion: This stuff smelled incredible (kind of manly?) but wasn’t as moisturizing as I’d like.

REPURCHASE | Bliss Hand Cream: I just got another hand cream but I don’t like it as much as this one. I’m kind of upset I fell in love with an expensive hand cream…

(would but $) REPURCHASE | Nars Eye Cream: I got this as a (huge) splurge last summer and fell in love. This is the smoothest eye cream/gel I’ve every felt and sits beautifully under makeup. If you want to #treatyoself, I would recommend this one.

*I’m no longer repeating things I’ve talked about in previous empties so you can check those out in the Empties tab in the sidebar!

    You can find Bliss products randomly at Marshalls! I found a pack of 2 of those hand creams for less than what Ulta sells one for! Sadly that was during the holiday season but Marshall does have random goodies there!

      Yes I love scouring the beauty section, it’s great when the products aren’t too grubby haha. I just scored some Body Shop body butter my TJ Maxx had some brand new goodies! Plus, the product is always better when you get it for a steal 😉
