Cocoa Divine

For Equate Moisture Care Cocoa Divine Body Lotion

lotion

My dad is the one that really uses this lotion and I use it occasionally. It is a cheap, moisturizing lotion that does work and is not heavily scented. I prefer a lotion with more of a scent, but this is a decent lotion that has been repurchased at least 10 times. We always have this lotion around and I even use it on Dean. He has dry arms and legs. I put it on after his bath and in the morning, he has softer, smoother skin. I highly recommend and will continue to repurchase this lotion. I like that it is lightly scented and is unisex because of that. It doesn’t bother Dean, who is sensitive to scents. Also, it is more moisturizing than Johnson & Johnson baby lotion. Go Figure!

With Love,

Empties: July

I have quite a few products that I used up in July. July turned out to be a good month for me and it is mostly due to my project pan. It really motivated me to use and enjoy what I have in my collection. I’m looking forward to reviewing some of these products in my post, so stay tuned for some reviews. I’m really a review blog for the most part. I love writing reviews on products that I have used up and I have a ton of posts in back stock. I just use up so many products that the reviews get backlogged. I try to mix it up, so it’s at least a variety. That means that some of these items won’t be reviewed for months though. Now that I have explained that. Let’s get counting.

I impressed myself this month with 40 empties. Granted only 23 were beauty, skin care, and hair care products. Still, 23 beauty related empty products is amazing in one month. I think August will bring around 20 items total. I really emptied quite a few products. Most of what I am using now are mostly full. I’m not thinking that I will have a whole lot, which is good. I have so many reviews to write about now. About 20 I think. I know it’s August 6th right now, but I have an empty bucket.

The Perfect Wipe

For Equate Beauty Refreshing Cleansing Towelettes

wipes

What it is:

Infused with a refreshing, pH balanced formula.

Key Ingredients:

Water, glyceryl stearate, citric acid, fragrance

How it feels/smells/looks:

These are white, cloth face wipes. They have a perfumed, refreshing fragrance of aloe. I really like the scent, but I could do without the added fragrance. It felt a little oily on the skin, but those wipes are SOAKED in product. I feel like these wipes clean and hydrate my skin.

Why I like it:

These are suppose to be knockoffs of Garnier Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes, but I actually prefer these over the real thing. I loved how these refreshed my face in the morning or after a long day. I like to try to pamper my face at night, so I mostly use these in the morning. i don’t have the time to fully wash my face in the mornings. At 4 USD a pack, they are really affordable and worth it. I will be repurchasing these, but right now, I have Simple wipes, which I do not prefer. I got them for free with a coupon.

April Empties

Not that many empties this month! I need May to be a better purging month. It is my birthday month, so maybe I’ll feel more motivated to use up everything. I need to just use up my things instead of being afraid to do so because then I won’t have it anymore. I can always buy another if I love it that much. I need to retrain my mind. Hopefully, I get better at using my products up…..Hopefully.

Walmart Haul

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I recently went to Walmart for a few things and ended up collecting a little haul for you. I plan on hitting up Kmart later this week, so there might be a mini Kmart Haul as well. I have 5 USD in shopyourway points, a 2 USD off a 20 USD purchase coupon, and a 2 USD off of a Sally Hansen product. So, I am going to combine these offers to get 9 USD off. You can look forward to that post soon. For right now, I have a Walmart haul to show all of you!

Cappuccino mix

Great Value Cappuccino French Vanilla Mix: I was so surprised to see a big can like this for 2.98 USD. I had to buy it and I have already tried it. It is very good and such a great deal! Nowadays, I like lightened versions of coffee and this is already mixed. It is very convenient and this will last the month of both my dad and I using it. I love mixes like these to make at home for my chronic headaches. Caffeine is the only thing that works and its more natural than medicine, which I’m not really supposed to take anyway. Before I have people attack me for drinking coffee, I am allowed 16 oz of coffee a day and as many decafs as I want. I have a cup in the morning and possibly one more at night, if my headaches come. I don’t always have a cup in the morning either. There are plenty of days that I have no coffee like yesterday.

Lipton Green Tea

Lipton Green Tea in Honey Lemon (Decaf): 20 tea bags were 2.19 USD, which was a good deal as well, since other herbal teas were 2.50 and up. I have tried the Lipton Green Tea in a sample pack before and I really liked them. I am getting really sick of mint teas, so I thought that this would be a nice change of pace. I am taking this to work with me to have tea there and cut down on decaf coffee. I usually drink 16 oz of water at work, 8 oz of whole milk, 8 oz of coffee, 8 oz of decaf, and usually 16 oz of more water in the afternoon. This way, I can cut out the decaf and possibly the caf if I’m not suffering from headaches. Honey lemon sounds like it will be sweet, so no sugar or milk needed!

vitamins

Spring Valley Prenatal Adult Gummy: A bottle of this is 7.98 USD, which is expensive but I have to have it. I can also only remember to eat it, because they are gummies. They taste like candy and it reminds me to eat them. I really like these, but I haven’t tried other gummy brands. I prefer them over pill versions. I wonder if I can find gummy ones for iron supplements? I will check that out after pregnancy. I don’t have that problem anymore, since Aunt Flo hasn’t visited in four months.

shampoo

Pantene Pro-V Deep Cleanse Purifying Shampoo: I bought this clarifying shampoo for 3.98 USD, which I thought was worth a shot for the price. I am having a pregnancy issue, where not all of my hair’s natural oils get cleansed with shampoo. I’m hoping that this will strip all the oils off of my hair. My hair is dirty/oily after I freshly wash it. That is not normal. I’m producing so much oil from my scalp and pores. My face is a greasy mess by 2. I use paper towels, because I was wasting too many oil absorbing sheets a day. I do a weekly deep conditioning treatment, so I think that this will pair nicely with it.

face wipes

Equate Sensitive Cleansing Facial Wipes: This packet of 40 wipes were for 3.98, so another steal in my opinion. I have never tried them before, so they could be a loss as well. I plan on using these at work on the days that I don’t wear bb cream. Let’s face it, it’s not very often. I will bring my moisturizer with me, if I decide to cleanse my face to get rid of the oil buildup. I use wipes for a quick cleanse. I don’t usually use them as a replacement for washing my face, unless it’s really late at night and I’m lazy.

razor refills

Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care 5 Curve Sensing Blades Replacement Heads (4 ct): This is by far the most expensive thing that I bought, but these work wonders on my legs. It is honestly the best blades that I have ever used and so much better than the disposable version. It was 16. 98, but I had a 4 USD off coupon. It was only 12.98 USD for me.  Still, that is like 3.25 USD a piece. My legs needed them though and I can no longer use my trusted and well loved Veet. Each head will last me about two months of use, since I only shave me legs once a week. They get extremely irritated otherwise and it’s not a pretty sight.

movie

The Big Wedding: This was in the 3.97 USD bucket at Walmart. I have never seen this movie, but I love the cast  of characters in it. I’m hoping that it will be a worthwhile romantic comedy, which is one of my favorite genres. I’ll let you know how it is in an Entertainment Monthly.

dog harness

Lastly, I bought two harnesses for the dogs, but I will be bringing the large one back. It turns out that Mooky fits into the medium perfectly and Serena needs a small instead. If Walmart’s small does not fit, I will have no choice but to go to PetCo as they have more variety in sizes and styles. Mooky’s harness was 5 USD. The bigger one was 11.98, but I am returning it and getting a small, which will probably be 5 as well. I wanted my girls to match!

With Love,

Selena
