August Empties

Pangea Austrailian Wild Plum and Willow Facial Cleanser This smelled interesting. Not bad, but like nothing else I have every smelled. The formula was very watery which really annoyed me, especially with the packaging of this sasmple. I felt like way more came out than I actually needed to use and dripped off of my hand into the sink. If I left it on my face too long, it would make my face really red as well. The redness would go away in an hour or so, but I had to cover it up before I realized it was this cleanser that was doing that. Otherwise, my skin was very nice while using this. It is much more expensive than Biore, though, and did not work any better, so I will not repurchase.

B&BW Japanese Cherry Blossom Moisturizing hand soap This is REALLY thick and in my opinion, not very moisturizing. It certainly doesn’t dry my hands out, but I can’t tell the difference between using this and using other soap. Also, the thickness of the soap meant blobs of it would get pushed off my hands and land all over the sink, wasting soap. I will not be repurchasing this type of B&BW hand soap.

B&BW Paris Amour lotion This smelled REALLY good. Very girly. Will consider purchase of full size once my collection is thinned a bit.

B&BW Nectarine Mint HandiBac foam This is one of my favorite scents, and I LOVE foamy things. Unfortunately the pump was broken so it was more liquid than foam though. I have enough hand sanitizer to last me 84759 years, so I will not be repurchasing for a while.

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream This smelled very nice and clean. It reminds me a lot of Sephora’s Instant Moisturizer. It also came in a cute little glass jar. Will consider repurchase when I need another moisturizer.

Benefit Refined Finish Facial Polish I usually like really scrubby scrubs, but this one was a little intense. It did an amazing job exfoliating, but it was quite rough. I will consider repurchase.
Dove visiblecare Renewing Body Wash I liked this a lot! It was very thick, even for a Dove body wash, and it was very moisturizing without being irritating. Will consider repurchase.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple Facial Cleanser This didn't smell very good, and my skin didn't wow me while I was using it. Will not repurchase.
Philosophy Eternal Grace Firming Body Emulsion I was REALLY excited to receive this as a sample for one of my online orders, but I was disappointed. It was VERY heavily perfumed, and while the scent wasn't bad (I actually liked it at the end of the day when it had worn off a bit), but MY GOD. It is very strong, even when I didn't use a lot of lotion. This is "firming" product, but a sample this size obviously isn't enough to make a judgement on its effectiveness. It stung, too, sometimes even when I hadn't shaved. All in all, I prefer my Body Shop lotion and body butter. Will not repurchase.
Ahava Mineral Body Lotion This made my skin SO soft and it absorbed quickly and didn't sting on freshly-shaven legs. It also had a pleasant, calming scent. Would repurchase if I didn't have a billion things of lotion to use up.
B&BW Sweet Pea PocketBac Spray I bought this purely because I had never seen a liquid spray like this at Bath and Body Works before. It worked...and it smelled good. I like the hand gels better though, because they seem less drying. Would not repurchase.
Olay Wet Cleansing Cloths-Sensitive These worked very well, but I miss the "Olay" scent that the non-sensitive skin ones have. I will repurchase the scented ones after I finish the Biore ones I already have.
Clinique Dramatically Differnt Moisturizing Lotion I got this in a GWP and I fell in love. I bought the gel version in February. Good stuff. I'd like to see what else is out there, though, so I will not be repurchasing after I use up all of the other moisturizers I have.
