Product Empties #11


More empties, what else is new?

In all seriousness, I get really excited when I realize I have finished another dozen products, as I love doing these posts. So, let’s get right into what I have used up within the last couple of months!






Batiste Dry Shampoo Ella Henderson

Pros: Smells great, sprays evenly, absorbs any excess oil, gives my hair more volume

Cons: Makes my scalp itchy if I use it too much, I don’t know who Ella Henderson is

Repurchase? Yes.


Simple Cleansing Micellar Water

Pros: Easily and gently removes dirt, oil and makeup, does not irritate my skin or eyes, affordable, free of parabens, artificial fragrance and dyes, comparable to Bioderma

Cons: Wish this came in a larger size

Repurchase? Always!

Yes to Coconut Cleansing Wipes

Pros: Easily removes dirt and makeup, can use these all over your body, extremely hydrating, wipes are incredibly moist, smells great, non-irritating (including the eye area), paraben-free, cruelty-free, 96% natural

Cons: Nadda

Repurchase? Already have!

Essence Mountain Calling Hand Balm

Pros: Moisturizing, great for cuticles, non-greasy, non-irritating, sinks quickly into the skin, cutest packaging, affordable, cruelty-free

Cons: Seasonal product, smell went weird near the end

Repurchase? If they bring this back in the winter—yes.

Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm

Pros: Instantly heals dry, cracked lips, very moisturizing, smells great, non-irritating, non-greasy, gives your lips a pretty sheen and makes them look fuller, paraben-free, cruelty-free

Cons: Feels a bit too sticky for the summer months, can only get it online

Repurchase? Yes.

Bath & Body

joeSCRUB Coffee, Charcoal and Matcha Scrubs

Pros: All natural, cruelty-free, exfoliates without being too gentle or too abrasive, effectively smoothes and softens skin, non-irritating, promotes circulation and evens skin tone (just to name a few of the many pros of these products…)

Cons: Messy to use, can only get it online

Repurchase? Already repurchased the coffee scrub, but I will definitely repurchase the other two as well!

Alba Botanica Very Emollient Cream Shave in ‘Mango Vanilla’ – $6.99

Pros: Smells amazing, affordable, hypoallergenic, free of parabens, phthalates and SLS, 100% vegetarian, cruelty-free, leaves my skin incredibly soft after shaving, really good for sensitive skin, skin does not feel irritated

Cons: Nothing

Repurchase? Already have!

The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel

Pros: Affordable, smells fresh and clean, lathers extremely well, a little goes a long way, soap-free (so it doesn’t strip the skin)

Cons: Feel like the green dye in this is unnecessary

Repurchase? Yes.

The Body Shop Olive Body Butter

Pros: Smells fresh and clean, sinks quickly into the skin, moisturizing, non-greasy

Cons: Really can’t think of anything

Repurchase? Yes.


Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer

Pros: Blends easily, brightens the under eye area, leaves you looking more awake

Cons: Wish it was more high coverage, not the best colour selection

Repurchase? Yes.

Benefit Speed Brow

Pros: Like the small brush on this, sets brows easily, doesn’t leave brows crispy

Cons: Overpriced

Repurchase: No. There’s way too many drugstore options that are just as good, if not better.


The Body Shop Vanilla Eau de Toilette

Pros: Love that this is straight up vanilla and has no other scents mixed with it, affordable, easy to travel with, sprays evenly

Cons: Scent doesn’t last that long, wish it came in a larger size

Repurchase? Yes, this is the best vanilla fragrance I have been able to find.
