August 2013 Empties!

I've been pretty MIA this month, mainly because my weekends have been jam packed + I've been working + I've been trying a bunch of new products that I needed to actually try before reviewing. The point is, sorry for being MIA and look out for some reviews :)

Now, let's talk trash. Woohoo!


Nature's Gate Pomegranate Conditioner - review here - This really didn't work for me. Didn't work as a conditioner or shave cream, but I managed to use it up somehow. Definitely won't be repurchasing.

Dr. Bronner's Eucalyptus Liquid Soap - review here - LOVE this scent so much. I use this to clean my stinky bits, tub, and sink. I already have another bottle.


Mont Echo Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Cream - review here - This was a really great cream cleanser. It cleaned off most of my makeup, calmed my skin, and left it hydrated. I wish that it was in a pump so that when the water (in it) separated from the cleanser, I could just shake. Having to stir prior to each use is a little inconvenient. I also don't think I would have gone through it as quickly had it been in a pump. Won't be repurchasing right now.

Pangea Organics Egyptian Calendula & Blood Orange Cleanser - review here - This has been my holy grail cleanser for a long while. I'm sad to say that it is no longer holy grail status. My skin craves something creamier, thicker, more moisturizing and this cleanser has fallen short now. I will not be repurchasing.

Weleda Baby Calendula Face Cream - review here - I.LOVE.THIS.STUFF.SO.MUCH! I use this as a hand cream now, since my hands are constantly being washed and I have a little eczema, and it works like a damn dream. I have already repurchased.

Olie Biologique 004 Huile Moderne Hydrating Oil - review here - I can't use argan oil on my skin, like many of you lucky bit....umm, like many of you lucky people out there. I CAN, however, use it to smooth out my hair. I really loved this small, travel sized, argan sample. It smelled gorgeous and worked beautifully on my end. Unfortunately, it's a tad expensive to just use on my ends, I won't be purchasing the full size.

ilike St. John's Wort Eye Cream Sample - no review - This eye cream is really great for hydrating the eye area. I noticed a slight plumping effect, upon application, and loved how my concealer looked over it. It lasted me a long time and I'm ready to try something new. I won't be purchasing the full size.

Physicians Formula Fake Out Mascara - review here - LOVE! It darkens, is buildable, lengthens, kind of thickens, makes my lashes look great, affordable, etc etc. I went through it REALLY quickly though. Mind you, I apply it every single day whether I wear a full face or not. I bought a duo pack, so I have another one already otherwise I would have repurchased.


Pukka Chamomile & Vanilla Tea - review here - Best.tea.ever. I've gone through several boxes of this stuff and it's the only tea I always have on hand. I love it before bed and when I have an upset stomach. Already repurchased.

Sunflower Seed Butter - no review - I'm really new to seed butters, I usually stick to almond and peanut butter. This was surprisingly tasty, despite the fact that it tasted a little like oil (if you don't know what I mean, I can't even explain it). I ate it on toast, with a little organic jam for sweetness. I'd probably repurchase. - Has anyone tried pumpkin seed butter? Any good?

New Chapter Probiotic Florall - no review - I'm pretty sure I've had a probiotic empty the last few months. They really help, or at least I think they help, keep my tummy feeling good. I don't find it keeps me regular, just feeling way less bloated. These are great, already repurchased.

That's all I finished this month. Wasn't too much right?

What have you finished up this month? Link it below if you have a blog or YT video :) xo

  1. I can't believe it's empties time again already! I usually stick to nut butters too...I just haven't loved any of the seed ones I've tried. Have you tried cashew or hazelnut butters? They're favorites here, along with peanut and almond :)

    1. Honestly, where is the time going? So no love for seed butters huh. I haven't tried cashew or hazelnut but pretty sure cashew will be my next nut butter (after I try pumpkin). Have you ever tried fresh pb and almond from whole foods? I swear nothing compares to it being freshly ground.

    1. I feel the same about your empties, some great UK brands you have there. PB is hard to replace! As long as it was nice, it's worth trying xo
