Product Empties #27


Happy Sunday friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I actually wasn’t feeling too great Friday and Saturday, so today has been nice to get myself back on track and ready for the coming week. And to end this weekend on a high note, here are some product empties I’ve recently used up! I love these kind of posts, so let’s get right into it!


Herbal Essences Daily Detox Volume Dry Shampoo

Pros: Love the fresh, invigorating crimson orange and mint scent of this, the citrus and mint feels stimulating, super inexpensive, no white residue, absorbs excess oil, free of parabens and colourants, don’t get as much product build up with this, as I do with other dry shampoos

Cons: Doesn’t give my hair much volume like it suggests

Repurchase? Yes.

Herbal Essences Tea-lightfully Refreshing Shampoo

Pros: Smells really refreshing, tea tree feels stimulating on the scalp, no heavy build-up, leaves my hair feeling really clean, inexpensive

Cons: Don’t find this as purifying as clarifying shampoos

Repurchase? Yes.

IMG_2901Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Conditioner

Pros: Smells really good, Detangles and conditions the hair, inexpensive

Cons: Just wasn’t really wowed with this conditioner

Repurchase? No.


Palmer’s Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer

Pros: Lightweight product that offers 24 hr moisture, leaves me with a dewy (not greasy) complexion, little goes a long way with this, love the coconut scent, affordable, uses ethically and sustainably sourced coconut oil and monoi oil, cruelty-free, free of any nasty ingredients

Cons: Very runny consistency resulting in the product coming out too fast

Repurchase? Yes, but not right away.

Herbacin Kamille Unscented Hand Cream

Pros: Excellent hand cream for sensitive skin, thick formula deeply moisturizes the skin and creates a barrier to protect the skin from the elements, relieves any painful tightness in my hands, contains camomile blossom extract, which feels very soothing, free of parabens, mineral oil, animal ingredients, synthetic colour and fragrance

Cons: Even though it’s unscented, I find this has a bit of a weird smell

Repurchase? Already have!

Herbacin Kamille Lip Balm

Pros: Such a great lip balm for dry, chapped lips, moisturizing and keeps lips from drying out, wears well under lip colour, contains camomile blossom extract, which feels very soothing, love the packaging, free of any nasty ingredients

Cons: Hard to find in-store

Repurchase? Yes.

IMG_2906Bath & Body

Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Creamy Body Wash

Pros: Smells incredible, creates a creamy lather, moisturizes the skin and leaves skin feeling clean

Cons: Not sure if they still make this product

Repurchase? Maybe.

The Body Shop Vanilla Chai Body Butter

Pros:  Love the warm, sweet and spicy scent of this, sinks quickly into the skin, moisturizing, non-greasy, scent lingers on skin

Cons: Seasonal scent

Repurchase? Definitely come the holidays!

St. Ives 24 hr Deep Restoring Almond & Linseed Body Lotion

Pros: Love the smell of this, non-greasy, absorbs quickly, lightweight formula, leaves skin hydrated and moisturized, good for sensitive skin, affordable, paraben-free

Cons: Didn’t ‘instantly boost skin’s natural radiance’ like it claims, 24 hr moisture is a bit of stretch

Repurchase? Yes.


e.l.f HD Lifting Concealer 

Pros: Affordable, cruelty-free, good coverage, doesn’t settle into fine lines, lasts all day

Cons: Only comes in 3 shades, product is hard to get out near the end, contains paraffins

Repurchase? Yes.

Essence Colour Correcting Mattifying Powder

Pros: Set my makeup well, helped even out my complexion, mattified the skin, looked natural on the skin, affordable, cruelty-free

Repurchase? Already have!

Pros: Smells great, affordable, good mist on it, easy to travel with

Cons: Wish the scent lasted longer

Repurchase? Yes, but not right away.
