Beauty Products

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This was fine, but the color match was really off for me, and they have very few color options, so I don’t think a lot of people would be able to use this product.  I like that it had SPF, though I prefer closer to 50. I  would not purchase again, and frankly I am still mad that Smashbox stopped making the powder I used for years and years.

BeautyBlender

This is my original Beauty Blender, I am embarrassed to admit how old it really is.  In my defense, I didn’t use it everyday and cleaned it a lot.  Well I have some new ones, and some new knockoff ones, so I decided it was time to let this one go.  Well then I thought, I want to cut into it and see if it is gross.  Well as you can see, it really isn’t!  Clearly, I hadn’t cleaned it…but why would I since I was throwing it away!  I would and have purchased again.  I am currently trying some other brands, and am impressed.  When you can buy 8 of a brand for the price of one of these….it seems like a no brainer.

Body Products

Jergens Ultra Healing

This lotion was great.  I have really been trying to get through my back stock of body products and makeup etc.  I would purchase again.

Equate Petroleum Jelly

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I got a terrible breakout of eczema last year, and honestly still have it.  A good friend of mine mentioned her kids get ti really badly, and to use petroleum jelly and socks at night, and that it really helps.  Well I do what she told me, and I do see a difference when I do this every night, and an even bigger difference, when I don’t do it!!  I would buy again and have, not necessarily at Wal-Mart…but I am a sucker for store brands of things like this, just don’t care which store I am at.

Household

Downy UnStoppables

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I love these, and this scent specifically.  I love it, it is so nice.  I got a febreeze plug in with this scent too!  Yum.  I would and have repurchased.

Bath & Body Works Soap

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

That isn’t too many soaps this time around, I liked both of these, and would for sure pick them up again.

Facial Cleansing

Top Care Oil-Free Makeup Remover

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I actually used this for cleaning my Beauty Blender.  It works like a charm and is cheaper than Beauty Blender cleaner!  I have tried brush cleaner, and again this works really well!  I can usually get a 2 pack for about 6 bucks.  I do go through it a lot though.  Again, get the store brand!  I have and would buy this again!

Garnier Soothing Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelette

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

These were fine, I do like them, not sure if they were my favorite, but they are better than the ones that I have right now – stay tuned, if I ever finish them…I like having beauty wipes, and would possibly buy these again, but there are others that I have liked more.

Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I ike these a lot!  Oh wait, actually I don’t like these.  These are the waterproof ones, I prefer the gentle ones…I have bought these over and over again (the ones that I like).  I actually recommended the middle size best, because these dry out pretty fast, so the bigger container….can be dry at the end.

Up & Up Renewing Cream Cleanser

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This was fine, and we used it up.  I like Target Up & Up Brand for just about anything.  But Target, is dangerous for me!  I can’t go in there without buying a ton of stuff, whereas Wal Mart – I can go in and buy only what I need or came for.  I would buy this again, but there are other facial cleansers that we liked better than this one.

Simple Cleansing Micellar Water

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I love this stuff, and found a bigger size recently at Costco.  I have repurchased and will continue to.  I have tried other micellar waters, but I seem to come back to this one.  I have used this to clean my beauty blender too, but this is typically used on my face.

Screen Protector Glass

Empties Summer 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I had to recommend these.  I had one on my phone, and dropped it bad in Target.  I have had cell phones for years and specially  iPhones for years, and have never broken one.  (I have however dropped them in toilets :(. again though I have never broken the screen on any of my phones.  (I have however on my iPad Air 🙁  Anyway, the crack spread and spread across the whole screen.  What I didn’t know, was if it was my phone or this cover.  I was scared to find out….but we did – and as you can see….that glass did it’s job.  I am so shocked!  We ordered more and I have a new one on my phone, and one on my iPad!  I will never not have this!  I wonder if they make them for MacBooks?
