The seasons might be changing, but there’s one thing that will always stay constant—good ol’ Product Empties posts. These posts are so satisfying to put together because as soon as I hit publish it means I can toss said empties and start fresh again. There’s probably some sort of metaphor I could make out of that, but I can’t be bothered to try and string one together, so just use your imagination. Anyways, here’s another dozen empties:
Pros: No white residue, absorbs excess oil and refreshes my hair in-between washes, don’t get as much product build up with this as I do with other dry shampoos, smells good
Cons: Online it says it offers UV and pollution protection, but my bottle doesn’t say that anywhere
Repurchase? Yes. I would repurchase this specifically for the UV and pollution protection.
Pros: Gives my hair a ton of texture and volume, smells good
Cons: Unfortunately, this really started to irritate my scalp (ended up just using it as a texturizing spray), white residue
Pros: Replenishes my hair and leaves it soft, restores shine, UV protection, smells great, lathers up well, leaves my hair feeling clean, affordable, eco-friendly, free of any harsh ingredients, 98% plant derived, vegan, cruelty-free
Pros: Replenishes my hair and leaves it soft, restores shine, UV protection, smells great, affordable, eco-friendly, free of any harsh ingredients, 96% plant derived, vegan, cruelty-free
Pros: Helps prevent breakage, leaves my hair feeling soft, smoothes frizz, smells great, affordable, lasted me ages
Cons: Won’t heal split ends
Pros: Refreshing, perks up the skin, love the mist on this, water stays cold and uncontaminated in the can, soothes and calms any redness and irritation, great for soothing sunburn/razor burn, very gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, a must for hot weather
Cons: Pricey for water in a can, dropped this bottle which caused the nozzle not to spray as well
Pros: Cooling and soothing on the skin after a day in the sun, moisturizing, smells good, affordable, paraben-free, alcohol-free
Cons: Didn’t prevent peeling, contains dyes to make it green, which is unnecessary
Repurchase? Probably, but I do prefer aloe vera gel that isn’t dyed green.
Pros: Feels moisturizing and comfortable on the lips, not too sticky, liked using this before bed, cruelty-free
Cons: The oversized applicator feels unnecessary and means you get less product in here
Repurchase? Probably not. I have other lip treatments I prefer more now.
Bath & Body
Pros: Feels really refreshing on the skin, not sticky and absorbs quickly into the skin, smells good, perfect for traveling and using in the summer, great option for people who are lazy with moisturizing
Cons: Found I went through this pretty quick, hard to use near the end of it resulting in wasted product
Repurchase? Yes, I would get this again for traveling.
Pros: Corrects, covers and primes all in one, full coverage, wears all day long, the two shades allow you to create your perfect shade, oil-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free
Cons: Hard to get the product out near the end, doesn’t normally crease, but this one did towards the end, as I think it was getting old
Pros: So easy to use, good precision, dries quickly, wears perfectly all day long with no bleeding, worked great until the very end without ever drying out
Cons: Tip started to get a bit flimsy near the end
Pros: Wavy brush hugs my lashes well, buildable formula, in the beginning it fanned my lashes out and made them look soft and full, doesn’t flake
Cons: This mascara started off so strong, but after a few months it went so clumpy on me, so much product would come out with the brush making a mess, because of that the lid also became so hard to twist open, the pink packaging started to come off resulting in glitter all over my hands that was hard to wash off, will bleed if you have watery eyes (does come in waterproof)
Repurchase? No. So many people love this mascara, but it became such a nuisance to use after only a few months.
