It's another installment of 3 empties, where I review 3 products I have used up and express my opinion on how well they worked, how they smelled, their packaging and if I'd make a repeat purchase.
Now let's get to the empties!
First up is Gem Block Liquid Latex from Dream Polish. This purple nail art protector shimmers when dry and is scented. I received this as a press sample in the summer (this is the old formula) in the scent Sun and Sand.
Scent: Sun and Sand is the perfect summer scent (well I love it year long!). It smells of sun screen - like the soft lotion scent of sun screen.
Feel: It dried quickly and shimmers when completely dry.
Packaging: Nail polish bottle and brush used to apply the latex.
Buy Again: Vanessa of Dream Polish changed the formula of her latex barrier (for the better). The new formula is creamier and thinner - getting into the cuticles and protecting them. I prefer the new formula to the older formula - so yes I shall buy again, but I have a few still in my drawer to use.
Next is a shower gel from Bath and BodyWorks. My birthday is near Christmas so I always get gift cards to Bath and BodyWorks. I can buy products for the whole year (especially when I luck out and hit their sales!).
Scent: I bought this last fall and finally used it - I stock up when I hit the sales! The scent was Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte. It smelled of Pumpkin Latte with notes of Toasted Marshmallow, Praline Musk, hints of Sandalwood and ginger. I really love this scent and I'm hoping they bring it back in the next year or two.
Feel: my skin felt moisturized after showering and lotion wasn't necessary afterwards.
Packaging: I love snap/flip tops, but the only drawback is that the top of the lid isn't perfectly flat. When I'm running low, I like to turn the container upside down and because the top is slightly rounded it won't stay upside down. I know this isn't a big thing, but when you are half asleep trying to balance a container upside down between a loofa and a bar of soap, it becomes a big thing. haha
Buy Again: I love Fall scents - so anything cinnamon, vanilla, clove, pumpkin gimme gimme gimme!
Last empty is not necessarily beauty related, but it's health related. I decided I needed more vitamins in my life. I picked up these berry gummy vitamins and kept them at my desk at work and took them with my morning BabyBel cheese (in my mind I was having wine and cheese). HAHA!
Scent/Taste: fruity taste - natural berry flavors with not taste of vitamins/powder and no strange after taste
Feel/Texture: gummy - who doesn't love gummies!?
Packaging: they come in a large plastic container with a screw off top with a total of 220 gummies. It was a bit large to have on my desk - but you know, I NEVER missed taking them.
Buy Again: YES - I actually have a 2nd container on my desk now.
Have you tried any of these products? How did you feel about them?
