Products I’ve Finished & Replacements

Welcome back to the blog! Today I am sharing some empty products and their replacements. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this post.

I have done blog posts similar to this in the past but this is being done a tad bit different. Normally, I would collect my empties for the end of the month then do a whole post with every product. Problem is I can not stand clutter and I do not want to hoard trash. So instead of collecting them I am doing these type of posts when I know a product is empty…even if it is a single product. What do you think of that idea? Good idea or stupid idea? Which way would you prefer? I would love some feedback. I got lucky this week because in one week I accumulated a few empties.

In the meantime let’s jump right into this post.

I just recently briefly talked about this facial moisturizer in the blog post about my simple skin care routine and I finally finished it. I went through my stash or “shopped my stash” to see what I wanted to replace it with. I have a couple other facial moisturizers but these two tula products are the oldest ones I own. So they are next on the chopping block.

Quick and Easy Skin Care Routine | My Skin Care Routine

Bliss Vitamin C Pro Collagen

I am not sure they sell this product anymore or it has new packaging because I can’t find it online. This was a good moisturizer with a heavy consistency but light on the skin. It did not make me breakout. It brightens the skin and delivers intense hydration.

Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream

This cream is suppose to be lightweight and moisturing and revive dull appearing skin.

Tula Illuminating Face Serum

I figured I had this product and the Tula cream the longest so I am going to use them together to get rid of them. This product is suppose to brighten uneven skin tone.

This week I also finished a tube of toothpaste. It takes me longer to go through these because my husband does not use them.

OxyFresh Cavity Protection Toothpaste

I enjoyed this toothpaste. This toothpaste stops cavities and plaque buildup with a fluoride formula infused with natural peppermint oil.

Oxyfresh Fresh Breath Lemon Mint Toothpaste

This gel toothpaste gives you an instant all day fresh breath and is infused with essential oils. No stinky breath here!

This weather recently has been brutal on my hands. I always keep hand cream close by but my poor hands are still dry and cracking.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion

I have been keeping this lotion in my purse and workbag especially during the cold season because my hands are so dry. This product is pretty good at keeping my hands moisturizered. I have used it a lot recently.

The Naked Bee Hand & Body Lotion

A coworker actually gave this to me as a gift a while ago. She uses it and I love the smell and its so moisturizering. Its a larger size bottle so I will be keeping this in my work bag.

Pre de Provence Lavender Hand Cream

This is one of my favorite brands for body care products. This hand cream fits perfectly in my purse. So I will keep this one there. Also, it smells amazing.

Now we are gonna talk about body products. I repurposed some items I had. Meaning I used them in ways other then intended. I have a few items I am not the fondest of but do not want to waste them.

Truly Organic Black Jelly Body Serum

The reviews are great on this product but I don’t think it does anything. To me its basically aloe vera and glitter mixed together. I don’t even have a real need for this product so why do I have this? Good question…I have no answer. So to not waste I have been using it as a body lotion. I don’t even think it has aloe vera in it but it reminds me of it. I have a few uses left on this one then its gone.

Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion & Massage Oil

I am putting these two products together because that is how I use them. I purchased the Nivea in a two pack and ended up hating the lotion. It is too thick and greasy. I have one bottle left. I mix the massage oil into the lotion to make it less thick and go an easier. I’m gonna use it and never buy this lotion again.

Onto the face, I exfoliate my face about once a week to remove dead skin cells and refresh my skin.

Believe Beauty In-Shower Face Mask

I just looked this product up and apparently Dollar General sells it for $4 😲 I had no idea. So I’m gonna have to check that out in the future. When I first started using this product I did not like it but grew to enjoy it. It gently exfoliates my skin and I use it in the shower. Its quick and easy. I have a few more uses out of this bottle before it’ll be empty.

Elf Gentle Peeling Exfoliant

I just purchased this and haven’t used it yet. But it has good reviews and I just need a basic exfoliator.

I drink a protein drink about 1-2 times a week depending on my work schedule. I use it as a meal replacement.

Vega Protein Made Simple Vanilla

I use to buy this all the time in the chocolate flavor which is my favorite. I then discovered premier protein and that is now my go to brand. I had this one sitting around the house and decided it needed to get used. So that is what I did.

Premier Protein

I love this brand but my favorite flavor is caramel which I can not seem to find recently. I am hoping chocolate is as good as caramel. I do not plan on ever buying another protein brand. It is so versatile and keeps me full.

There you have it. I was surprised at how many empties I have this weeks. Do you have any empties this week and what are you replacing them with?

    Aahhh the only products from your list that I’ve used is the Nivea body lotion. I got the huge bottle too and it felt very off putting during summers but I love it during winters.
    My empties – my bath and body works hand cream (which was a gift) is over and I so badly want to repurchase it but since it isn’t sustainable, I’m not going to and just hope someone gifts me one some time in the future.
    Same with my VS body mist. I love Victoria’s Secrets scents but since they aren’t sustainable I just can’t convince myself to buy another. 🙈

    Thanks for sharing. I tend to not shop at those stores also but their scents are amazing. I use to get coupons in the mail for free small versions but those stopped 😐

    Wow! We like a lot of the same products! Those protein shakes are are everything! I also love Muscle Milk. Love Nivea products, but I agree that one is very thick. Their in-shower body lotion was my go-to, but now I can’t find it anywhere.

      I’ve never tried muscle milk. I have used the Nivea in shower also but haven’t in a while. Usually I like their products.
