3 Empties: Dream Polish Cuticle Oil, Simple Make Up Remover Wipes and Bath and BodyWorks Hand Sanitizer

Greetings and Nailutations,

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.

First up is Dream Polish Gem Glow Cuticle Oil in the sent of Hawaiian Orchard.  I received this as a Press Sample from Dream Polish.  I used up every last drop of this product as the applicator and product were both amazing.

Smell Test:  Hawaiian Orchard is scented with tropical fruits with floral notes.  
Feel Test: kept my cuticles hydrated and moisturized
Packaging Test: click pen, easy to use and travel with (I kept it in my purse)
Buy Again:  yes - I have a ton of oils and love Dream Polish products

Next product is Bath and BodyWorks PocketBac in the scent of Noel.  I had bought this a few years ago (during a huge sale) and it took a while to get through them.  

Smell Test:  scent of vanilla, that remained on my hands after use

Feel Test: product was originally in gel form, but either time or temperature caused it to become more liquidy....but it still worked for the most part.
Packaging Test: I love the little containers, perfect to carry in my purse or attach to my backpack with one of the clip on products that Bath and BodyWorks carries 
Buy Again: Of course!  These little mini hand sanitizers are the PERFECT holiday (Christmas) gift for my co-workers.  I can help keep them all un-germy which in turn helps keep me un-germy.  haha!

The last product was a 3-pack of Simple Make Up Remover Wipes that I picked up at Costco.  Simple advertises as the sensitive skin experts.  Overall the product meshed well with my skin.

Smell Test:  They were intended to be unscented but they smelled like medicine or a hospital...I didn't care for the scent.

Feel Test: loved how well it cleaned off my make up and left little behind
Packaging Test: easy to pull 1 wipe from the package and none of them dried out.
Buy Again: I didn't care of the scent, so I would pass on purchasing these again.

Happy Polishing,

  1. It's been a while since I've liked a Simple product. I just finished their Miceller water and hated it! It did nothing to remove my makeup and was more frustrating than anything!

  2. My Simple wipes have never had a fragrance. I recently finished a pack and have another waiting. I guess I'll have to take more notice.

  3. OMG I totally feel you on the simple micellar pads. They totally have a scent and I could have sworn they are supposed to be unscented.

  4. I love empties posts! The cuticle oil sounds lovely :)

  5. I have the Simple wipes too...they are just ok.

  6. I haven't tried any of these but I love makeup wipes and cuticle oil pens.

  7. I go through cuticle oil like there's no tomorrow. I think that is my most frequent empty.

  8. Well done on the empties! I love Simple Wipes - they're the gentlest of them all.

  9. Every year I stock up on the Vanilla Bean Noel lotion, my favorite!!! <3

  10. I've never seen these simple wipes! Too bad about the scent though

  11. Vanilla Bean is one of my all time favorite Bath & Body Works scents. I love having these little purse size anti-bacs.

  12. Man, I used to be in love with those B&BW antibac gels. They irritated my hands and I stopped using them, but I do miss them! Well done on the empties. :)

  13. These all look really good especially the cuticle oil x


Thank you for your comment. :)
