Product Empties #33

Product Empties Flat Lay

Things have been busy and exciting on my end, but I’m trying not to forget about my blog in the process—especially when I have more product empties to share! I have so many products I’m nearing the end of, which honestly excites me, as I constantly mention on here how I am trying to downsize my collection. Here’s what I’ve finished over the last couple of months:


Dove Refresh + Care Unscented Dry Shampoo

Pros: Fragrance-free, doesn’t irritate my scalp from the product buildup like most scented dry shampoos do, inexpensive, no white residue, absorbs excess oil

Cons: Doesn’t refresh your hair in terms of smell since it’s unscented

Repurchase? Yes.

Live Clean Biotin Extra Body Shampoo

Pros: Helps give my fine hair more volume and texture, smells great, lathers up well, leaves my hair feeling clean, affordable, eco-conscious, free of any harsh ingredients, 98% plant derived, vegan, cruelty-free

Cons: Nothing

Repurchase? Yes.


Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

Pros: Doesn’t strip my skin, non-irritating, gentle yet effective, easily cleans my skin and removes makeup, little goes a long way, soap-free, fragrance-free, free of any harsh ingredients, 99% natural, cruelty-free

Cons: Nothing

Repurchase? Yes.

Product Empties Flat Lay

Dermalogica Calm Water Gel*

Pros: Very hydrating, helps lock in moisture, soothes the skin, great option for after being out in the sun, feels weightless on the skin, smells great (randomly reminds me of old-fashioned lemonade), vegan, cruelty-free,

Cons: Pricey, don’t get a ton of product for the price

Repurchase? No. It’s a fabulous product, but it’s out of my price range.

Live Clean After Sun Aloe Vera Gel*

Pros: Contains 98% certified organic aloe vera, really effective in soothing a sunburn, gives my skin a ton of moisture, eco-conscious, dye-free, fragrance-free (but smells like maraschino cherries to me, which I love), free of any harsh ingredients, 98% plant derived, vegan, cruelty-free

Cons: It’s not a smooth gel, so it does takes a bit more time to rub into the skin, pricier than other drugstore aloe vera gels

Repurchase? Yes.

Wild & Wolf Folklore Sweet Honey Hand Cream

Pros: Smells great, lightweight, absorbs quickly, great for handbag, love the whimsical packaging

Cons: Not effective for super dry hands

Repurchase? Yes, but not right away.

Bath & Body

Live Clean Shea & Murumuru Butter Foaming Body Wash*

Pros: Foams up really well, good option for those that don’t like to use a loofah, smells good, affordable, eco-conscious, free of any harsh ingredients, 98% plant derived, vegan, cruelty-free

Cons: Feel like I went through this fast, as I had to use quite a few pumps of this every time I showered

Repurchase? Probably not, just because I much prefer Live Clean’s regular body washes.

Nip + Fab Body Shimmer Leg Fix

Pros: Really pretty golden shimmer lotion that leaves my legs looking luminous and healthy, moisturizing, love the rose and ginger scent

Cons: Would always forget to use this

Repurchase? Maybe.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in ‘Vanilla’

Pros: Sheer to medium coverage, gives my skin a radiant glow, looks natural on the skin, leaves my skin looking dewy and not oily, moisturizing, wears great all day long, perfect shade match, contains SPF 30

Cons: Once it was past its expiry date it started to break me out (I still held onto it for way too long aka until now)

Repurchase? Yes, but I would be more adamant in using it up before the expiry date!

Essence Camouflage + Matt Concealer

Pros: Waterproof, affordable, cruelty-free

Cons: Claims to cover tattoos, but barely covered anything, didn’t blend well into my skin and creased, clung to dry patches, not a fan of the scent

Repurchase? No.

Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

Pros: Looks incredibly natural on the skin, sets makeup perfectly, reduces shine significantly, mattifies the skin, very affordable, cruelty-free

Cons: Wish it had a mirror for on the go touch ups, tend to go through this product pretty quickly, powder has a tendency to break once you hit pan on it

Repurchase? Yes.


Zoella Beauty Bake My Day! Fragrance Mist*

Pros: Good festive scent, love the bottle

Cons: I started to get sick of this scent towards the end, limited-edition

Repurchase? No.
