Empties July 2018

Hello, hello!

Today I have my monthly empties post in which I’m sharing the products that I’ve managed to use up, links to reviews, and whether or not I’ll purchase / repurchase. I didn’t finish up as much as I had hoped, but progress is progress!

Bath & Body:

Empties July 2018

The Body Shop Soaps in Shea and Olive – My mom is a huuuuuge fan of The Body Shop, and gives me several bars of this soap every year. I think that I just opened the last bar in my stash. I rarely remember to keep the package, so they rarely show up in my empties. Review is here. And I’ll likely purchase these soaps again (or my momma bear will gift some to me)

Kani Moon Milk – When I first got this in a Petit Vour box, I loved the scent but found it to be a little too much sparkle. Once I got a tan (not by most people’s standards, but by pale standards) I used it a lot. I even added some of my argan oil in the container to make it last longer! Review is here. I don’t know that I would purchase a full size even though I did like it.

Neal’s Yard Remedies Bee Lovely All Over Balm – This was a PR item, and I absolutely LOVED it. I used it all winter long, and started using it again when my feet needed a little extra love. Review is here. This is on my wishlist because I have other body creams / balms to use up.


Empties July 2018

Haus of Gloi Lip Balm in Beguiled – This lip balm was lost for ages, and I finally found it. Sadly it was a little off, but it was very finished. This was in my stash since before I started blogging, I can’t even remember how long I’ve had it. When I re-stock my pumpkin butter collection, I’ll add a lip balm (or three) to my order.

The Ordinary “Buffet” – I’ve lost track of how many of these I’ve gone through – at least four I think – my skin really does well with this one. Review is here. Will I repurchase? Maybe. But I’ve been eyeing other serums that I would love to try.

Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum – Stashy  from Stash Matters sent this one to me in a care packag almost two years ago. This is one of the few eye creams that I’ve tried that does not irritate my sensitive eyes. I’ve been using this almost every single night and need to replace this asap! Review is here.

Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil – Another Petit Vour product.I mostly used this for body and hair since I have so many oils to use up. I think that the bulk of it was mixed in with my Kani Moon Milk. Review is here. I still have a few oils to use up, so I won’t even think about replacing this with a full size at any point soon.

Suntegrity Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil -The container kept rolling away every time I tried to take a photo, haha! Another Petit Vour sample. I mostly used this as the first step in my cleansing process when I was wearing loads on sunscreen. It also worked really well at removing waterproof mascara and smelled really nice. I liked it, but I have a few cleansers to use up, so no need to purchase a full size. Review is here.

Ursa Major 4-in-1 Essential Face Wipe – I actually finished three of these facial wipes, but can’t find the third package. I just reviewed them on Monday – I don’t often use facial wipes for cleansing, but these were the nicest ones I’ve ever tried and I really liked the scent. I probably won’t buy them, but will use up the rest of the package at some point.

Sothys Noctuelle Chrono De-Stressing Sleeping Mask – PR sample. There should be two empty packages here – I suspect that I left one of the empties in Nova Scotia. This is a really lovely night cream / sleeping mask. I managed to get several uses from each foil pack. Every time I used it, I woke up with such great skin! I have a few moisturizers / face creams to use up so I won’t be purchasing, but I’ll put it on my wishlist. Review is here.

Still going, and will never, ever, ever be finished:

July Almost Empties

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Pressed Powder – I’d mentioned this in last month’s empties as a “nearly empty” and it is still going strong! I use this powder EVERY SINGLE DAY and it just won’t quit! I really like it, but want the satisfaction of finishing it!

Milani The Multitasker Face Powder – I keep this powder in my bag for touch ups, so it isn’t used as much as the Wet n Wild one, but I will get through it eventually!

Did you finish up much this month? Do you find that face powders take forever to finish?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Disclosure: Anything gifted by family / friends or PR are identified. Everything else was purchased by me.

  1. It is so satisfying to finish a “last in stash” item. It is so hard to be good and not buy. I still have not opened by Buffet. I know that you like that stuff a lot. haha The only powder products that I’ve finished completely was the baremineral mineral veil (twice) and benefit’s dandelion. I am so impressed with those pans of yours!!!! Well done~~

    About to finish the baremineral foundation at last! The problem is that I get bored after a month or so and I always ended up going back to MAC face and body. My project pan situation is not good *lol*


      1. EXACTLY!!!! I feel the same whenever I try to pan something~~~~ You know, after VICIOUS 3 months use on a MAC blush with aggresisve natural hair brush, I only saw a BIT of the pan. I give up.
