(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

For the month of November, I have made a personal goal to use up as much of my beauty samples as possible including the numerous fragrance, hair, and skincare samples!! With a much lighter beauty drawer and countertop, these products did an excellent job in restoring my dry hair and skin, scents that flatter my mood, body chemistry, and Fall/Thanksgiving season!! And loving one of my must have chocolate brands, Lindt's!! Read more about my review below!

I have used up the most skincare samples for the month of November...reviewing Rodan + Fields skincare serums and microderm to samples from my Birchbox!! I enjoyed the resent GLAMGLOW Supermud from the local Sephora Inside JCPenny which has done wonders for my dry skin which does break out!! All of these items are pricey but if you purchase these on sale/deal and practise a good skincare regimen that focus on quality ingredients based on your skincare needs, it will last you for months!!

I enjoyed trying new perfumes and although all smelled pretty good there are a few that I would keep if I bought them full size (particularly the small jar...since you don't want a BIG bottle) including Lancome "La Vie est Belle" featuring Julia Roberts in its ads, CLEAN Cashmere, and surprising Juliette has a Gun "Not a Perfume" which is a single note!!! Although all are pricey, when I find a good sale in the future I will definitely choose these brands! :)

I enjoyed using this lipstick sample from my local Walgreens beauty counter during my recent purchases and I really love the Blushing Mauve lipstick for being moisturizing to my dry lips and flattering shade of pink/mauve for my skin tone!!

After getting my relaxer touch up for my long, dry hair I have been enjoying these samples from Matrixx Biolage RAW which is salon's natural reconstructing shampoo and conditioner, Mizani Supreme Oil which is perfect for my dry hair and scalp without feeling "heavy or greasy", cult vegan hair care favorite Number 4 Hair Care Smoothing Balm, and Oribe Gold Lust for refreshing my hair between shampoos!! Although these products are pricey, when you followed the directions and use best hair practices these can easily last for at least 2 months depending on your lifestyle and hair type but I would glad try these products again!!

I love these two freebies with purchase from my local Bath and Body Works which both smell delicious and put me in a fall nights mood!! Highly recommend these scents in beauty and candles!

I have always wanted to try the "Chili" from Lindt Chocolate without paying the full price just in case I don't like "Spicy, hot chocolate" but I was pleasantly surprised in the flavor and mild heat from this dark chocolate!! Thank goodness I got one in reserves for snack or movie time! :)

So this concludes my Empties Review for the month of November and make sure to check out my final Empties post for 2016 towards the end of December!!

Until next time...

  2. Lovely post! I haven't tried the Revlon lip product yet but this looks good. Lindt chocolate is also a favorite of mine and I can't wait to try this chilli flavor. xo

  3. The dark chocolate chili candy bar from Lindt is one of my favorites. Chili pairs so well with chocolate! I got a different GlamGlow sample than you, and I also love the one I got. It's silver - is yours? What is the single note of the Juliette Has A Gun scent "Not A Perfume" that you got?
