Empties Pt II: Bath & Body

Hi darlings, as promised here is my bath & body empties! I'm sure there were way more than this I just probably forgot and ended up throwing them out. 
Pictured above: 3 different scents of Bath & Body Works shower gels, 2 Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter, 2 scents of LaVanila deodorant, Tree Hut Sugar Scrub, and Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer
Bath & Body Works shower gels: These are my favorite shower gels cause they smell so good and they usually have awesome sales that I typically stock up on. For those of you that have followed me for awhile know my signature scent is Sweet Pea. I absolutely loveeee that scent but I do also enjoy trying new ones too. I really like the Endless Summer scent, especially for vacations! I am in the market to try a different brand of shower gel though so let me know if you have a favorite that you'd always repurchase!
Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter: I tried this on a whim because I've seen really good reviews on this and I picked it up before going on vacation and let me just say this was a God send! I got really bad sunburn while on vaca and this was the only thing that helped it and actually moisturized my skin. I went through this travel size in like 4 days so I picked up a second one. I haven't picked up a full size yet but would I? Yes!
LaVanila Deodorant: This is a healthy version of deodorant that you can get from Sephora.com. Basically this deodorant doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, like aluminum. I personally love this brand. I did notice it doesn't last as long as I'd like it to but I keep a travel size in my purse for that reason. But I like knowing it's better for me than the other deodorants on the market so I prefer this brand. 
Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub: This specific scent smells like a vacation, literally. Like you smell it and it instantly takes you to an island. I already repurchased one of these but this time I got the one in a mango scent. It exfoliates and makes my skin feeling so smooth and it's inexpensive. Win, win and win! 
Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer: I've probably gone through like 4 of these since I started collecting my empties. I always have one of these hanging off of my purse. I'll always repurchase these cause I love the Bath & Body Works scents.


Stay tuned, next up is my skin care empties! :)

Skincare, Bath & Body: Drug Store Edition

Bouncing off of my previous post of my favorite drug store makeup, I thought it was only right to continue with my favorite skincare and bath & body products from the drug store!

So let's jump right in!


Skincare

Freeman Masks (Ulta $3.99)
These are the best masks I've found so far that aren't a crazy, ridiculous price. They have clay masks, exfoliating scrubs, and peel-offs. I have quite a few of these and every one that I've tried was great.
Shea Moisture African Black Soap (Walmart $3.47, Ulta $4.99)
If you've followed me for quite some time, you've seen me mention this product quite a few times. This is such a great face wash for those that have acne prone skin like myself. If you over use it, it can be a little drying, but as long as you moisturize, you'll be fine!
Montagne Jeunesse Single Use Masks (Ulta $1.99)
The first mask I tried was their chocolate mask. It smells just like chocolate and I fell in love. I wanted to try every single mask this brand had. The only problem I have with this brand is that they only sell single use masks. I wish they sold tubes like Freeman does. Otherwise, awesome masks!


Bath & Body

Degree Girl Just Dance Invisible Deodorant (Walmart $2.47)
As much as I like fresh smelling things and floral scents, this deodorant stuck out to me because it has a different smell than most deodorants. The packaging is a little more for teenagers, but otherwise I love it.
Bodycology Exfoliating Sugar Scrub XOXO (Walmart $5.95)
This was an impulse buy for me. I've heard so much about sugar scrubs and I smelled it in the store and absolutely loved it! How I used it: I shaved, then scrubbed this all over my legs, and shaved again - I've never had such smooth legs before!
Shower Gel Suave Sweet Pea & Violet (Dollar Store $2)
My signature scent is Sweet Pea so this is just perfect for me. It's just an affordable, wonderful smelling shower gel.
Organix Hair Care Line (Walmart $5.74, Ulta $7.99 - $13.99)
Organix has a wide range of hair care products from shampoo & conditioner to oils and hair masks. They're affordable and awesome products. I personally don't use them enough and I should.
 
 
 
 
 
L'Oreal Total Repair Damage-Erasing Balm (Walmart $5.97)
This stuff is a life saver. I don't trust too many products from the drugstore, especially for my hair because many of them contain Sulfates, but this one does not and it works like a gem. Your hair will instantly feel softer after rinsing this out. This is one of my holy grail hair masks! I might even like this better than some high end ones - that's how BALM dot com this stuff is!
 
 
Do you have any skincare or bath & body products from the drugstore that you're loving?

What's in My Purse?

What I Keep in my Purse

What a girl keeps in her purse can say A LOT about her and her personality. You can get to know the things she likes, and what she feels is necessary to carry around with her on a day to day basis. Sometimes you can tell how hygenic a girl is by what she carries with her as well. The purse I have a Michael Kors Jet Set Signature Logo Tote that is still on the Michael Kors website for $178.00. It has three separate compartments as well as two outside side pockets and four compartments inside. It is great if you are one to carry a million things in your purse like me. You can find it at the link below. I've had this purse for almost a year now, so I'm looking into getting a new one, and soon! Suggestions would be great :)
Michael Kors Jet Set Signature Tote



I don't know about you, but my purse weighs a TON and I always feel like I'm carry around bricks with how heavy my purse is. I always joke around saying it feels like I carry around a body all day, but I don't - so here's what I really carry around:

A pack of spearmint Stride gum to keep my breath smelling fresh, a mint EOS egg chapstick to keep my lips moisturized; I also carry an E.L.F lip exfoliator that I got from Target for like $2! There's a Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer attached to my purse handle in the Caribbean Escape scent. The hand sanitizer is held in a purple holder with rhinestones on the side that I also purchased from Bath and Body Works. Another Bath and Body Works product I keep in my purse is a Sweet Pea body spray.



I keep my iPod with me, as well as ear buds, just in case I'm in the car for a long time - I just hook my iPod to the AUX cable in my car, or if I'm sitting alone somewhere I'll pop my headphones in. I try to stay hygenic as possible, so I also carry an extra deodorant with me because you just never know! I use the Degree Girl Just Dance deodorant.

My hair is typically always down (except for this month - I'm trying a month of no heat, so I've had my hair in braids almost every day! I'll post about my experience with that.) But for when it is down, I keep a handful of hair ties in my zippered pocket so that they aren't just all laying at the bottom of my bag, because then it becomes a hassle trying to dig for them.



I keep my favorite pen in my purse which is actually from Planet Fitness. I love it because it writes in such a pretty purple color. A Dunkin Donuts coupons that I shoved my bag (which actually expire soon, so I'm going to head there today!). By the way, I usually get an iced caramel latte with extra sugar :)

I keep silver dangle teardrop earrings in my side pocket, because you never know when you'll have to go from casual to dressy. Sunglasses also a huge neccessity, especially when driving or if I'm outside somewhere, so those are also stuffed in my purse. I don't tend to wear them too often just because it hasn't become a habit for me yet, but I'm trying to get myself in the routine of wearing them. Lastly, and most importantly, my keys are kept in my purse as well. I don't keep too much on my key ring, but I have my house key as well at my car key. I also have a coach key chain that is white and to hold my keys I have a small wrist holder that is pink with white polka dots with a circle at the end that has my first initial on it.



I have a Vera Bradley wallet that is pink, brown, black, and white. I aboslutely love how big it is and how many compartments it has. I wish I could find a Michael Kors wallet that was as big and convenient as this one. Anywho, I keep the usual bank cards, drivers license, and check book in there. I also have my car registration in there, LOL, I have no idea why! That should definitely be in my glove compartment IN my car...NOT my wallet.

There is a Rita's Italian Ice "savings for a rainy day" coupon that I got like 3 months ago and have yet to use! I am certified in CPR and First Aid, so I keep those in my wallet just in case. My Triple A card is a definite necessity because cars can be so unpredictable, I'll save that  topic for another day. I also have an Ulta rewards card that I keep in my wallet as well as two gift cards, one for Macy's and the other for Bed Bath & Beyond




Lastly, in the zippered part of my wallet, I always, ALWAYS, keep a piece of a magazine I cut out when I was a senior in high school. I was in photography class and we had to make a collage. When I found this quote in a magazine, I decided to keep it forever (and eventually laminate it since it's getting a bit torn up). It says, "I think we deserve people who really, really love us". For some reason, it was just inspiring, and still is. It's a reminder not to accept people in your life who don't really care, and to appreciate those that do.



Thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed seeing what I carry in my purse.

XO,
