Winter Empties: Part 3

This round would have to be my 'not so great' empties edition. I got probably almost all of these products from Birchboxes in months past, and while sometimes some of the boxes are good, sometimes the samples aren't so good. 

1. Miss Jessies, Creme de la Creme - This is probably one of the worst products I've received in a Birchbox. Not so much because of what it did, but more so how it smelt. This smells like the toner that I put in my hair when I used to dye it all the time. I opened up the packet and almost had a little freakout because of the smell. I tried to use it, but honestly I couldn't use it without gagging or freaking out. It's something I would definitely not purchase. 

2. Clearasil Refreshing Superfruit Wash - I really liked this face wash. I got one use out of each packet, and kind of wish there was a little bit more. I've always really liked pretty much everything I've bought from Clearasil, so it wasn't really a surprise to me that I enjoyed this. It made my face feel clean.

3. It's Potent, Total Moisture, Triple Preforming - I am kind of obsessed with this skincare system. I really want to buy the entire skincare line. As far as brightening my skin? I didn't see any real process, but I only really used the samples for about four days. 

4. Love Shampoo - Smooth my hair? Not so much, but my hair isn't too frizzy to begin with. I liked the smell of the shampoo, and it worked well enough for me. This is not something that I would use on an everyday basis, or something that I would really repurchase. It was a heck of a lot better than the conditioner though. 

5. Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream - I received a sample of this in my Birchbox. I had never used a CC or even a BB cream before, so I thought I should give it a chance. This is one of those things that I'm still wary about. Yes, it was moisturizing. No, it didn't cause my skin to be oily. But I just didn't really feel like it did anything for me. I don't think I'd use a CC or BB cream on a normal basis, but this didn't really do anything for me. 

6.  Caudalie Divine Oil - Once again with the oddly smelling (to me), overpowering oils.  Usually all I hear is praise about Caudalie, pretty much everything. Now, it could be that I'm just not one for hair oils, but there was just something I didn't like about this as well. I really did try to use the rest, but I just had to toss it into the empties bag. 

7.  Ojon Nature's Golden Elixir - As you can see, this is not empty, but I was so done with it after three or four times of using it that I had to just toss it to the empties bag. There was something about it that made my hair feel really weird. It felt very weird and greasy. 

8. Lashem Noticeable Difference Lash Growth - Whenever I saw this in one of my Birchboxes, I was really skeptical if this would work. After using it for a while (it's actually dried out now), I can't honestly say if my lashes grew much. However, I could see a bit of a difference when I used it on my eyebrows.
