It has been a while since I last did an update on my empties and the bag where I keep them was beginning to get very full. Along with many other things that changed over the past year looking through my empties also shows some of the changes that I am making in my makeup and skincare routines that I will discuss while sharing my empty products.
I also got rid of quite a few makeup products this season as they have been open a long time and needed to be decluttered as their consistency and texture were changing which means that that part of the empties is even bigger than normal.
If you have followed this series at all you know that I really love the Body Shop body creams and this shows my final two containers of them. I have officially switched to some unpackaged body lotions which are working well for me as I use them only after I bathe or shower and the lotion melts into the skin. I also have a small body lotion from my advent calendar that smelled like whipped cream and was so nice.
This middle picture represents some things that I finished up this week after I had already taken the other photos. The first is a face mask that I have been working through for years and purchased two years ago in an after christmas sale. It came in a package with 4 others that I am still working through as well. I also have a shampoo that I really enjoyed. I have just started trying again to use a solid shampoo however, but it has been a struggle for me to find one that works with my dandruff. This shampoo had tea tree oil in it however so I am going to try using some straight tea tree oil mixed with the solid shampoo and see if that would work. I also finished up a shaving cream that was Nigel’s that he wasn’t using.
I had previously finished a shaving cream of my own as well that was nice, but moving forward I am just going to be using soap or conditioner which I have heard works well also. I finished up another tub of my favourite makeup remover Ultrabland and although I haven’t been using as much lately as I haven’t been wearing as much makeup I still do love it when I do use it. I also had a small body wash that I use as bubble bath and small body lotion from a hotel visit early last year.
So there are the items that I have used up recently. Check out some of my previous empties posts to see some of the things repeated over and over again and let me know what some of your holy grail products are.
