Beth and Beauty’s May 2014 Empties, Let’s talk trash!

Beth and Beauty's May Empties 1

Hi! Beauties! Another month has flown by…. it is already Beth and Beauty’s May 2014 Empties, Trash Talk Time! In case you are new to this trash talk concept, let me explain it to you. Every month I share with you what health, beauty, bath, etc. products that I have used up and do a little mini review by letting you know whether or not I will repurchase product. We will start with the above picture:

  • Finishing Touch Smile Tooth Whitening Pen – I bought this from I have stained teeth of being a smoker for about 25 years, plus they are very sensitive. This product did seem to whiten them a little  and with no sensitivity. Yes, I would repurchase.
  • Sensodyne Whitening Toothpaste: This was like a foam toothpaste that is suppose to whiten sensitive teeth. Well, it did not whiten my teeth and my teeth hurt along with my gums and bottom lip. No, I will not repurchase!
  • Plus White 5 Minute Premier Whitening System, Speed Whitening Gel: Yet another whitening product I tried to whiten my poor old yellow teeth, nope, it did not work either plus it hurt my teeth and both my gums and bottom lip hurt also. No, I will not repurchase.
  • Plus White 5 Minute Premier Whitening System, StainGuard Rinse: This is the rinse that came with the above gel, I bet you know if I will repurchase this or not- you are so right, NOooo I will not repurchase. I have came to realize that my small, yellow and brittle bottom teeth is going to look yellow. I get them cleaned twice a year so I know they are clean. I look at it as a reminder that I should not have smoked all those years. So glad I have now been a non-smoker now for over 2 years.
  • Crest  Complete Multi-Benefit Whitening Scope Outlast Toothpaste- I used all this product and it didn’t whiten my teeth that I can tell but my teeth felt clean and my breath was fresh. Plus, it is the only whitening toothpaste that hasn’t hurt my teeth. Yes, I would repurchase if on sale.
  • The Crest toothpaste is laying on the  empty packaging of what my 2 toothpaste  SqueezIt Tube squeezers came in. These are the neatest little do-dads that I have ever seen. You just put them on the end of the toothpaste tube and move it up as you use the toothpaste and you end up using all the toothpaste that is in that tube. I know you probably already knew about these things, but this small town little girl just found them and I am amazed. They were also just $2 at WalMart.
  • Back to the top roll, a Mainstay Cranberry Pear small candle: it smelled good and it was cheap so yes I would repurchase.
  • Vitamin B Complex Gummy Vitamins- I use 2 of these a day, so yes I would and have repurchased.
  • Vitafusion MultiVites Complete Multivitamin Gummy: I have to take 4 of these a day. Vitifusion is my favorite brand of these, so yes I will and  have repurchased.
  • Bath & Body Works Lemon Meringue Cheer Anti-Bacterial Foaming Hand Soap: I love Bath & Body Works Foaming Anti-Bacterial hand soaps and I always keep a lemon one in my kitchen. Yes, I will repurchase.

  • Sample of Thierry Mugler’s Alien Perfume: It had a good floral but woody scent. I liked it and if it was on sale, I would purchase it. I don’t buy a whole lot of perfumes due to my allergies.
  • Travel size of Secret Antiperspirant/Deodorant Invisible Solid: Secret is my favorite brand of deodorants so yes I will repurchase. I love keeping these travel size packages for me and my husband’s get-a-way weekends.
  • Under the deodorant is the box/bottle of Zim’s Crack Creme: Don’t laugh, Oh! go ahead, I did too, the first time I heard of the name. This was recommended by another blogger  for very dry and cracked skin. I bought it and I just can not use it because it smells horrible. When I throw away a product because I can’t  just suffer through it,  then you know it smells very horrible.
  • LAMAUR Vita/e Ultra Hold Hair Spray: I have had this for a very long time and I use to use it all the time. I finally did use it up and it is a good hairspray that doesn’t make your hair feel like straw, but the hold is not the greatest. I might just repurchase this because it is good for those days when your hairstyle doesn’t call for a lot of holding power.  I just thought of this while typing this post, but I bet this would be a good backcombing spray. You can find this at Sally’s Beauty Supply.
  • Lush’s Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub: This is a wonderful smelling and blue body exfoliant you use while in the shower. I am telling you it smells amazing!! Yessss! I will repurchase as soon as I can get to the nearest Lush store, which is 2 hours away.
  • Assured  100% Cotton Rounds: I got these at the Dollar Tree, they did the job but meh! I would repurchase if necessary but I would prefer my Cotton Clouds or Walgreens Organic Cotton Rounds.

  • Bottom Blue Mascara Tube is the Avon’s Aero Volume: I started out really liking this mascara but within about a month it became so gooey that I could not use it any longer. No, I will not  repurchase!
  • Black sample right above mascara is the Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation sample in light: I have found with these type of little samples I can not really tell if I am going to like the foundation or not. I will have to get a larger sample to use for a couple of days to really be able to say whether I would purchase it or not.
  • The little black tube is Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion exfoliant: I got this in my April Ipsy Glam Bag and I love this but it is too expensive for me to justify. I believe it is like $80 for 1 oz.
  • Purple/Tan container is IntensivEye Aniti-Wrinkle Eye Makeup Removal Pads: One word, Awful!!! I got these at TJ Maxx for $3 and they were not worth that. Sad, just sad!
  • Black pump bottle is Lush’s Eau Roma Water toner water: I loved this toner and I will be repurchasing as soon as I can get to a Lush Store.
  • Blue/White tube is the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream: This really burned on my face, so I stopped using it and am trashing it.
  • Lancome Tonique Radiance Exfoliating Toner for normal/combination skin: I used all this product but I feel it is a little to drying for me so I will repurchase a Lancome toner but the one in the pink bottle for sensitive skin.
  • Anastasia Brow Powder Sample in Dark Brown: I love Anastasia and I used this sample up and when I run out of my full size of brow powder I will repurchase.
  • Kiel’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration Face Cream: Again with these small samples I really can’t say whether I will purchase, it felt good going on and my face was smooth in the morning is all I can say about it.
  • Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil: This stuff had such a bad smell, I don’t need another sample, NOooo! I will not purchase.
