EauMG’s August 2017 Empties

August 2017 Empties

Let me just say I bought so much while I was in Europe. I can’t even list it all. I stocked up on European sunscreen, German bath/body products, makeup that isn’t available in the US and fancy skincare. I’ve got to stick to a no-buy for the rest of the year now. I just have to. Because I really went overboard. I’ll share my haul with you guys if you promise not to shame me.

Since I traveled so much in August, I thought this would… Continue reading | 20 Comments

Thesis Natural Body Products Review (Rose Vanilla)

Thesis Beauty is an indie line of natural skincare and body products based in Massachusetts. They sent this rose lover three products to try:

Thesis Rose Body Scrub

Body Scrub in Rose Vanilla Sorbet

This is a salt scrub in a thick oil and butter base. It claims to be so moisturizing that most people don’t need to follow-up with creams/oils.

Appearance: It’s currently solid and some of the oils have “risen” to the top (it’s creamy). The base is a light pink with rose petals. The packaging… Continue reading | 11 Comments

EauMG May 2017 Empties

 

May is my  birthday month and I completed my first year of grad school in May.  I give myself a “free pass” to buy whatever. Now I’m trying to remember what I bought. Oh, yeah. I bought Maison Francis Kurkdjian Amyris Femme Body Oil. I’m really happy with this purchase. It smells a lot like the perfume. I bought a mask from Too Cool for School just for its name: Fresh Gore.

EauMG’s February 2017 Empties

EauMG Feb 2017 Empties

February 2017 Lowbuy Update – I’m such a cheater. I ended up buying a “bundle” of Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks which were Buy 3 for $45. I always gripe about liquid lipsticks but for some reason I wanted the new shades. The swatches were just too darn pretty. FYI – they have done something to the formula. Two of the shades were very comfortable (the new ones) and one of the older colors, Dolce, was very uncomfortable I looked at the… Continue reading | 12 Comments
