15 recent beauty empties: which ones will I restock immediately?
Every time my little "empties-basket" is filled up to the rim, I know it is time to show you my trash again. This is always a great opportunity for me to give you a couple of mini-reviews. 🧺
Here are my hair care empties!
1. Orlando Pita Argan Oil Glossing Shampoo & Conditioner (Amazon)
As an avid reader of my trash posts you were probably already wondering, "Is she never washing her hair?" - LOL! However, these 2 giant bottles of 27 fl oz lasted me quite a while- many months for sure! I only wash my hair every 3-4 days (read here why). I truly enjoyed this shampoo and conditioner infused with Argan oil. It smells great but not overpowering and it made my hair feel smooth and soft. Highly recommend! 👍
2. AGEbeautiful Ultra Bond Bond Synergy No. 2 Conditioner (Sally Beauty)
I tend to use up more conditioner than shampoo and this one is a wonderful choice that contains bond-building arginine, silk amino acids and keratin!
3. Batiste Dry Shampoo (Amazon)
You guys: I have to admit something. After being so happy with my much cheaper dry shampoo from Lidl, my husband bought me -by accident -the original version from Batiste and it lasted me twice as long as the Lidl version! 1 Lidl bottle lasted me about 4 weeks- but this Batiste bottle lasted me around 8 weeks. So, I am going to go ahead and say that Batiste is better than the Lidl dry shampoo after all. 😅
However, here is a little trick that is even cheaper if you do not want to spend much for the same result!
Here are my body care empties!
1. Nivea Nourishing Body Wash (Amazon)
One of my favorite body washes- especially now during the colder season! It feels super moisturizing and creamy. Works also great as a facial wash! Love the light, clean scent too.
2. St. Ives Exfoliating Body Wash Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange (Amazon)
This body wash has a great zingy scent that wakes me up quickly! Love the little exfoliating (natural) particles too!
3. Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes (Amazon)
I don't know how to sugar coat this... but these are literally only sugar coated cubes of soap! I did enjoy the Granny Smith apple scent🍏, but other than that I am not a huge fan of bar soap and find these more of a gimmicky way to sell pieces of soap.
4. Kneipp Bath Oil Dream Away Valerian & Hops (travel size) (Amazon)
This is definitely one of my absolute favorite bath oils! Warning!!! You may feel like sleeping within 30 minutes of your bath! 🛏🌙
5. MyChelle Lip Hints (Amazon)
This is a lovely lip balm that feels super moisturizing with a nude tint and a fresh peppermint scent. Great for everyday! However, I wish this would be available in a lipstick tube, because a jar feels a bit unhygienic and is inconvenient on the go!
Here are my skin care empties!
1. Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse (Ulta)
This is 2 cleansers in one. The solid cleansing oil removes makeup while the cleansing cream thoroughly cleanses any left over residue. Really enjoyed this- especially for removing heavy eye makeup!
2. Frownies (Amazon)
Well, if you don't know that I am sleeping since many years with a Frownie between my eyes- you must be a new reader of this blog! Of course I have a new pink box, ready to go! Read here my 5 year update!
3. Derma e Hydrating Mist (Amazon)
Love this mist with Hyaluronic Acid, Rose Water and Coconut Water! It feels refreshing and hydrating! I have already a new bottle! Yay! 💦
This cream contains Lycopene Hydrosol, made from hydroponic tomato extracts. It feels so super creamy and moisturizing! Absolutely in love with it! My skin feels like a fresh, ripe tomato! Haha! 🍅
5. Derma e Vitamin C Bright Eyes Hydro Gel Patches (Ulta)
I enjoyed these eye gels containing allantoin, caffeine and vitamins C & B3. They made my dry under-eye area look a bit smoother. However, after taking them off, I have trouble applying concealer or foundation because the leftover product will pill up. That is why I ended up using these rather at night than in the morning.
6. OxygenCeuticals Ceutisome AG Mask (Amazon)
This is a great hydrating sheet mask! My skin felt baby smooth after!
And there you have it!
