July Empties 2016

beauty blog

Shhhhh I know it’s almost September!! I was um, a little busy during the last few weeks, and I never got around to taking pictures for this post. Even though my August Empties will be up any day now, for continuity sake I thought I’d throw this up real quick. Then you can expect a July/August or ‘Summer’ favorites post in a few days as well! I’m pretty sure my August Empties is going to be good too, so this way it’s not overkill!

Giovanni Grapefruit Sky Body Wash

So I love pretty much anything grapefruit, except, not straight grapefruit. Weird right? Grapefruit drinks, snacks and scents are great, but I’ll never eat a raw grapefruit. Anyway. The scent of this grapefruit body wash from Giovanni is A-FREAKING-MAZING. Like, I want to live inside this bottle. It’s super fresh and sweet, I never got tired of it. I really want to try more Giovanni body washes and lotions because they do scents so well!

Vitacost Biotin 1,000mcg 

While yes this is a vitamin, I wanted to add it to my empties because I was taking it for beauty purposes. Biotin is a vitamin that helps support nail and hair growth. I have very weak nails and my hair gets brittle fast, so I thought I’d try a vitamin supplement to see if it helped. I don’t think the 1,000mcg did much for me, but I just uped it to 10,000mcg, which will hopefully make a difference!tarte gifted mascara

Tarte Gifted Mascara

I some how ended up testing 3 mascaras at one time, which is way too much mascara for two eyeballs. I had picked up the Tarte Gifted mascara during a Tarte sale, and was happy to get to try a higher end, green mascara at a better price. First off, I love the packaging, it just looks so nice on my make up table. Second, this is the best mascara I’ve used in a while for comfortable, soft, everyday lashes. I find mascara usually feels sticky and heavy on my lashes. A few swipes of Gifted was perfect for my low make up work days.

Andalou Naturals Brightening Serum

I’m a huge fan of Andalou Naturals, which you’d know if you read here often. They just have really great products at a really great price. I tried the Brightening Serum out because I loved the Clarifying Serum. I’d say I love the clarifying one more, but this one still has its perks. I love how the serum dries down quick, so I can go in with a moisturizer. It doesn’t feel that heavy or sticky as long as I don’t apply too much. I use a lot of brightening products, but some acne scars I had did go away fast!
