Journey to 100 Empties!!! 1-5

*All Items In This Post Purchased by The Passenger Element*

I have to admit...seeing empties posts is enjoyable!  Once I took stock of the mass of products I had accumulated, there was even a bigger thrill in getting to the point where I was pairing down, using and enjoying the products I had.  Here is my first entry into empty land...

#1 - BIORE Self Heating One Minute Mask - I'm a huge fan of anything mask for the skin...lotions, potions and every notion under the sun.  This mask is easy to use and what I love the most about it is that you can feel the heat and feel it working.  I just wish there were more packets in the container.  You get 4 single use packets for between $6-7 dollars.  Not exactly exorbitant, but its drugstore, give us a few more.

#2 - MEIJER (store brand) Strengthening Nail Polish Remover - just your run of the mill polish remover.  Did not dry my perpetually ragged cuticles any further, so that was a plus.

#3 - E.L.F Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets - 50 blotter sheets.  One dollar.  They work.  Enough said.

#4 - BATH AND BODY WORKS Mad About You shower gel - Foamy, rinses clean, does not add much in the way of moisture, but you do feel clean!  Contains notes of Black Current, Vanilla, Peony and Strawberry.

#5 - MAC Zoom Lash mascara - A holy grail in my book. Lengthening, thickening, and black as all hell.  Gives structure to my lashes, but never hard enough to consider them "crispy".  Never experienced any flaking, smearing, smudging.  This starts as a pretty wet formula, or at least the 2 tubes I have had were, so I let them dry out a bit and they become the perfect consistency.

What are you guys currently emptying?

I recently made some changes to my lifestyle that directly affected my health for the better.  With that, I added a more rigorous exercise plan to get my up and more active.  Starting this has had no shortage of growing pains when it comes to waking up aching from the day before.  So in addition to cooling down properly, hot baths, warm water bottles and the occasional rub down from my significant other, I have also been using this cream to combat all my aches and pains...'

OxyRub Pain Reliever stats
This has been one of the most pleasant pain creams I have ever used.  For me, the smell is almost pretty!  There is a slight tinge of medicine, but that quickly wears away to reveal an almost sweet and citrus scent.  The cream really does rub into the skin with no issues and absorbs very quickly.  There is a moderate cooling effect that lasts longer than other creams I have used that state the same claim.  the cooling is pleasant and it never made me feel uncomfortable.  As far as aches and pains, the cream did work within minutes...on areas where the pain was deeper or more acute, it took a little longer, but did feel the lessening of pain.  Aside from pain relief, the cream also made the areas I rubbed it in extremely soft.  I was very impressed with how quick and well this worked.  It was hard to believe that a cream that curbed my achy areas was also gentle on the rest of my body.  I accidentally touched the hand I had cream on to my face and experienced no burn, itchiness or irritation.

Super gentle, effective and fast acting...what else would you want from a pain reliever?
