Summer 2016 Empties

Hey friends! As a fair warning, today's video is a long one. So go grab yourself a snack, maybe a cup of tea, and get cozy, cause you're gonna be here for a while. It's been three months since my last empties post and I've got a giant bin full of beauty trash to share. If you're relatively new to the beauty blogging scene, you may be giving me a strange look right now. Girl, why the heck are you hoarding a bunch of empty bottles and packages? And the reason is not because I've got some kind of strange obsession with beautiful packaging (although let's be serious, those are the hardest products to chuck). Anything I've completely used up is something I'm sure to have a pretty solid opinion on, and I want to let you guys know whether or not I thought it was repurchase worthy, or if I think there are better options out there to recommend.

Sound like a good time? Beautiful.

I tried so very hard to not make this video 45 minutes long. Filming and keeping things moving was pretty intense! I actually was curious as to what you all preferred. Should I keep doing my empties seasonally and compiling them into one giant video like this, or should I go back to doing them monthly? Maybe you totally don't enjoy empties videos at all, which would also be helpful to know. Post a comment below and let me know what you're feeling.

Also, if you're tried any of these same products, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Are we on the same beauty page, or have you had a totally different experience? We'd all love to know!
