Today I will be doing an Empties post for the combined months of May and June thanks in part of having cell phone (mine & my Moms) so you may know a little difference in photos but not too much!! I have a lot of beauty, skincare, makeup, and more to review so let's get started below:

I enjoyed these samples which had 2 of each of the Ogx Beauty Kukui Oil Shampoo and Conditioner for my long, dry new growth/relaxed hair for managing against frizz and humidity against the Summer conditions plus has a great scent that transported me to the tropics!

I enjoyed handful of Davines Salon Care products for my dry, relaxed hair type including these sample packets of Davines LOVE Conditioner and Davines Authenic Replenishing Butter for Face/Hair/Body from my Birchboxes!! I need to use BOTH of these conditioners for my long shoulder length hair and over two inches of new hair growth which is thicker and coarser than the rest of my old relaxed portions (my last relaxer touch-up was in February!!)

I enjoyed these sample packets from blogger swap of R + Co Atlantis Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner for my dry hair type which also has a great scent and modest suds!!

I have finally worked on finishing up several nail polishes in my nail collection and I love both these shades of red from OPI Nail Polish including "Amore on the Grand Canal" and "Pretty and Privileged"!! I highly recommend these shade for your personal nail designs for your manicures and pedicures!

This is one of my favorite brands that I found at my local TJMaxx store which is great for my under eye areas especially at nighttime when I finished cleansing! I highly recommend this KBeauty brand of Masqueology Revitalizing Eye Gel with Pearl Powder!!

One of my favorite scents from Bath and Body Works around Mother's Day, I enjoyed using this popular Japanese Cherry Blossom with Shea and Vitamin E Body Lotion on my dry skin!!

 I enjoyed Rituals Ginkgo's Secret Ginseng & Ginkgo Biloba Caring Hand Cream from Birchbox last year during the Holidays which was very effective on my dry hands and body!!

I enjoyed using both the Soapbox Coconut Conditioner with Shea Butter which is very effective for my dry hair and my new growth/relaxed hair during the last several months!! I will buy this and its shampoo again which I spotted at my local Target store!!

I enjoyed using this sample of Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream from my Target Beauty Box on my dry skin which is very effective all day and all night!! If its on sale I will get it again!!

I have been a long time fan of NatureMade MultiComplete with Iron and Fish Oil Supplements for my women's health and with dealing with my Crohn's Disease!! I got them "Buy One, Get One Free" which my local Kroger's Food and Drug keep on sale for affordable deal!

I have always been an Eucerin lotion or cream user for my dry hands, skin, and feet and will definitively get this Eucerin Intensive Repair Ultra-Enriched Hand Creme again!!

I received this The Body Shop Shea Sugar Scrub via Birchbox with was great in removing dead skin cells without being too harsh followed by moisturizing Shea Butter for a little scent on my skin and prepping for self-tanners!!

I was glad to have my personal opinion on Obliphica Professionals Seaberry Hair Serum for "Fine to Medium" hair types from Birchbox which help in managing the frizz and new growth in my dry, long hair!!

I enjoyed using Au Naturale Cosmetics Organic Makeup sample from one of my Spring Birchboxes especially the lipstick in "Sangria" and the blush in " Palermo" which both complemented my medium/tan skin tone!!

I never get tired in receiving samples of Derma e Firming DMAE Moisturizer which is very effective on my dry facial skin and would highly recommend getting from Birchbox, Target, and other stores!

I got this Mally Beauty Liquid Lipstick/Gloss in "Cherry Blossom" for sometime in my makeup collection but I have finished this full-size product from Birchbox over a year ago!! I personally highly recommend it as it also conditions my dry lips!!

I enjoyed using this sample from my May Target Beauty Box for self-tanning and highly recommend it as a good drugstore brand to use from Loreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes For Body !! Its has fresh scent and low "self-tanner" smell to it and gave my medium/tan skin a good golden glow and nourish my skin with Vitamin E!!

I got this Kroger's Food and Drug generic brand of baby oil for my dry skin and makeup removal but I won't be buying this again for going towards more natural oils that are just as effective with those two tasks!

I enjoyed this British Brand in one of my Spring Birchboxes which works great with my body chemistry despite some ladies saying its a "older woman" strong scent from Penaligon's London Levantium Eau De Toilette!! I might get a small bottle of this during the Fall/Winter which will work best for me!!

I enjoyed using this Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume Roll-On which complements my body chemistry and great morning scent to use to wake up and feel energized!!

This is good drugstore brand for cleansing my dry skin despite saying "For Normal to Oily Skin" on CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser from my May Target Beauty Box!!

 (Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

I enjoyed using this Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream from one of my Spring Birchboxes for both day and night plus works well when I applied my makeup on top of my hydrated face!

The only item that I won't be getting EVER the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick which was a very drying matte formula regardless of using lip balm to make it work on my dry skin but do love the shade in "Bella 13" in my Birchbox! Love, love Supergoop Play Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil with Meadowfoam on my dry face and skin without making it greasy plus in SPF 50 from my Birchbox!! Although the full size is pricey, my eye areas enjoyed this 111 Skin Space Defense Bright Eye Lift Gel from Birchbox that I got during the Holidays!! And I love this KBeauty brand from my Target Beauty Box, Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream, which is great for day and night for lasting hydration on my dry facial skin!!

This Air Repair Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid that I received in my June Birchbox is OK but after a hour of moisturizing my dry facial skin it felt that I never put any moisturizer at all despite alot of bloggers raving about it!! Maybe there is cream that I can try instead in the future!

I have always enjoyed using Acure skincare products which you can get at Birchbox or Target like this Acure Pore Minimizing Facial Scrub with Moroccan Red Clay and Argan Stem Cell and Acure Day Cream with Gotu Kola Stem Cell and 1% Chlorella Growth Cells!! These are worth recommend and re-purchasing again!

 The Garnier Clean + Smoothing Cream Cleanser with Jojoba and Macadamia Oils is a good drugstore soap-free brand on my dry skin for cleaning off makeup & dirt!! I enjoyed this sample of RE:P Real Elemental Practice Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herbs from my January Birchbox as a Kbeauty face mask that really cleansed and refresh my skin without additives and other harmful ingredients, just don't let the yeast appearances fool or gross you out!! I would definitely recommend to anyone and buy it again for a face mask!! I enjoyed using this Anadlou Naturals Night Repair Cream that I received in my May Target Beauty Box which was very effective in hydrating my dry skin at night and waking up with softer skin!!

Well that is it in using up several skincare, hair care, and beauty products these last two months of Summer and stay tuned for my July Empties post!!

Until next time...
