Recent Empties!

So it's been a few months since my last empties post, and I'm really sorry about that! I've still been collecting my trash this whole time, I just haven't gotten around to writing about it. So I'm going to try to catch up, but I'll be breaking my empties down into a few posts, so it's not so overwhelming. Let's get started with my first batch of trash!

Recent Empties

Agadir Argan Oil Volumizing Styling Mousse* - I absolutely loved this mousse! It was alcohol free, and gave a nice bounce to my waves!

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Stick* - This was a medium to high coverage cream foundation, and I'm already wanting to pick up a replacement!

Dove Refresh & Care Dry Shampoo - This was my second bottle of this dry shampoo, and I think that it's my all time favourite formula!

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Butter* - This scent is incredible, and this formula was super hydrating and pampering. This might just be my new favourite body butter from The Body Shop!

Lush BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask* - I'm kind of proud of myself for finishing this off before it expires! I loved this face mask & I think it'd be great for anyone with oily or acne-prone skin.

Live Clean Exotic Nectar Replenishing Hand Cream* - I just finished off this tube a few days ago, and I'm already missing it! This formula is rich, hydrating, yet absorbs quickly.

Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter* - This formula is super thick, creamy, and luxurious. I also love this scent, it's soft, sweet, and calming.

The Body Shop Shea Body Scrub - This scrub itself uses organic sugar and salt to give your body a good exfoliation. I personally love body scrubs that are both exfoliating and hydrating, and this formula is the perfect combination of those two qualities. My skin is left feeling incredibly smooth, soft, hydrated, and looking radiant.

Philosophy My Heart to Yours Shower Gel* - I initially wasn't a huge fan of this scent, but it quickly grew on me! I really love Philosophy's shower gel formula, it's thick, creamy, and lathers really nicely.

Recent Empties

Epic Blend More Moisture Green Apple Lip Balm* - This scent was really nice, and I love this formula!

Philosophy Cabana Girl Shower Gel* - This was a guava coconut scent that is just amazing. Fruity, sweet, and coconutty. Love!

Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment* - I used this oil daily for ages, and I absolutely loved it! This help to hydrate my hair, and it smelt amazing.

Crabtree & Evelyn Nantucket Briar Hand Therapy* - This formula was rich, creamy, and super hydrating. Definitely recommend!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub* - I love the entire tea tree line from TBS, it's perfect for anyone with oily or acne-prone skin!

Lush Ponche Shower Gel* - This is a holiday release from Lush, and I really love it. I absolutely love this scent! It's very orangey, but I can definitely detect deeper notes, perhaps the cinnamon and tequila.

Institut Esthederm Osmoclean Pure Cleansing Foam* - This foaming cleanser left my skin feeling cleansed but not dry. This bottle lasted me quite a while, and I'd definitely want to pick up a replacement!

Recent Empties

Lush Celebrate Body Lotion* - Massive hit, but unfortunately it's only around during the holidays!

Lush Blousey Shampoo* - This is a great hydrating shampoo, and I loved that it didn't leave my hair looking/feeling greasy!

SkinCeuticals AOX+ Eye Gel* - This little bottle lasted me ages, and I really loved it. I found that this formula helped to lighten my dark undereye circles, and it also gave my skin a light dose of hydration.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser in Light - I loved using this underneath my eyes, to help brighten everything up and to make me look more awake!

Crabtree & Evelyn Pear & Pink Magnolia Body Wash* - I really liked this scent, and the formula lathered up really well too!

Epic Blend Hemp Coconut Lip Balm* - What's not to love? A beachy coconut scent, and a hydrating formula!

Laboratoire Dr Renaud Clear Up Cleansing Gel* - This gel formula doesn't foam up too much, and I don't find that it dries out my skin. I do find that whenever I use this cleanser on its' own (without my Clarisonic), it can sting my eyes. If you have very sensitive eyes like I do, just be aware of that, and try to keep the product away from your eye area.

Whew! Ok, we made it to the end of this batch! I still have a ton more empties, but I'll wait a little bit before sharing the next batch. I would love to know if you've used any of these products, and what products you've used up lately! Feel free to leave me a comment below and we'll chat :)
