There is something therapeutic in finishing up products. Especially when you have a stock pile! I am all about living intentional this year and bringing items into my life that have purpose. I am trying to avoid stockpiling and just buying to buy though many times I do fail. We can only do our best.
I can not recall doing an empties post and most times I forget to save the empty container and it goes right into the trash. But I have been remembering and I am happy to say that this post is all about some recent empties. I will share them in detail, what I think about the products, and if I would purchase them again. So here you have it my empties!
Vega Protein Made Simple Protein Powder.I really like this product and the taste of the dark chocolate. I mix mines with vanilla unsweetened almond milk. I have purchased this many times and would buy it again. It tastes great but the only downside is it does not keep me full long enough. I am currently going through a vanilla flavored container and will probably stick to my Premier protein after I finish, but it is good. The Premier protein tends to fill me up and keep me full longer so that is why I usually reach for that brand instead.
Listerine Ultra Clean. Not much to say on this one. I usually gravitate to the Listerine brand but I am not particular in my mouth wash and am open to trying new brands. This does work and keeps my mouth feeling clean and fresh. I do not know about other people but I always rinse with mouth wash after brushing my teeth.
Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser. I will forever rave about this product and I will always purchase it! I always keep a container on hand. This stuff is amazing and has been around forever! It removes my makeup and keeps my skin soft, plump and hydrated. I have used this for years and always will recommend it. I consider this product a staple in my skin care routine.
Tresemme Thermal Creations Hair Heat Protection. Another product I have been using for years and will always use. This is an affordable heat protection spray that I use all the time. It works great and leaves my hair soft and manageable. The formula is lightweight and does not leave residue. This is another product I consider a staple in my routine and purchased another bottle.
Aveeno Skin Relief Fragrance Free Body Wash. I actually purchased this after Christmas and it was a gift set that two of the body washes and came in one pack. It was a good price so I picked one up. I did not need it but got caught up in those post holiday sales. I was not living intentionally. Either way, Aveeno is a great brand and has quality products so I do enjoy this body wash. It is very lightweight and scent free which is great. This has not dried my skin out. I would purchase it again if I needed body wash.
Lash Idôle Lash-Lifting & Volumizing Mascara. I loved this mascara. So much that I even did a whole blog post dedicated to reviewing it. I posted the review February 2021 so I have been using it for an estimated 6 months. I would still use it but the stopper came loose in the bottle and the product was coming out clumpy and unmanageable. I was going to purchase it again, but decided to try something new. I am loving my new mascara and will probably stick with it, but I would purchase this again. It is pricey so that makes it a little hard because there are so many great less expensive options.
Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Invisible + Acne Patches. This is another product I dedicated a whole blog post to so you can bet this is a repurchase for me. I am obsessed with these patches and this is the only brand I have ever used. They work great and I have no shame in wearing them when I am out dong errands. If you wanna read my full review on pimple patches it is linked below.
Tea Tree + Olive Oil Detoxifying Hair And Scalp Serum. Run and get this product now! I swear by this product so much so that my husband has started using it. I swear this serum grows my hair and grows it fast. A little goes a long way. A few times a week I rub it into my scalp and hair and I also rub the product into my cuticles. It is amazing and I love the smell! Make sure you only use a little because the scent may be overbearing for some and you do not want to make your scalp oily. I will forever purchase this product. The moment I start getting low I add it to my cart.
Clarins Mission Perfection Serum. I am pretty sure they do not make this product anymore because I can not locate it on any site besides a few like Amazon. Not to mention the price is ridiculous. It worked good but I would not rave about this product. It melted into my skin and did not leave any oily feeling but I do not think it did anything to actually improve my skin.
Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub. The only reason I purchased this cleanser was for our New Orleans vacation. I wanted something small and travel size and this worked. It was fine and I do not have anything bad to say. I would buy it again for travel but it is not for me when it comes to daily use. It works but I do not think it brightened my skin.
