Time to feed my trash bin with empty nips and bits from my bathroom shelves and makeup drawers.
Sometimes I feel like I am drowning in empties. Like now, because I quite recently made an empties post, I am doing one now, and I still have enough empties to fill the next post. While other times I am just wondering why the heck I don’t get any empties because I shower, do a full skincare and makeup routine every day and still there is nothing empty to talk about. Am I the only one with undisciplined empties like this?
Well, they are here now. I feel like mentioning the number thingy again, since I gained a few followers lately. I like to number each empty product I talk about so that I by the end of this year can see how many products I actually go through. Just my way of keeping track.
And here they are. A bit of haircare, a bit of skincare and a bit of makeup. If you have been following me for a while you may wonder where my empty Haus Of Gloi Pumpkin Butters are. I can assure you, they exist. But they exist in my locker at work and they were not here for this photo session, so they will be joining us next time. I still go through them like crazy so nothings changed.
#32. Rituals Ritual of Sakura Conditioner: Nourishing conditioner that smells like fresh cherry flowers. Gives my hair a lot of shine, but it also weigh it down a tiny bit. I love Rituals, and have several of their shampoos and conditioners, I just think my hair is a bit too fine for this.
#33. Rituals Ritual of Sakura Shampoo: Same thing as the conditioner. They are obviously made to match. Each other that means. Not me.
#34. Mad Hippie Cream Cleanser: I actually posted a review of this a while back. Have a read here if you are curious about all the details. The short version is that I really like this and would happily repurchase. Just have to go through some other stuff first, but the brand intrigued me and I will be happy to have this back, and potentially try more from the brand.
#35. Bella Lucce Arabian Odyssey Massage Oil: Since no one is here to hand out back rubs this has been a body oil for me. Works well for that purpose, gives lot of moisture and smells divine (but quite heavy). Don’t know if I will buy the oil again, but I will definitely buy the body cream with the same scent. Less sticky you know, and since I don’t see any back rubs coming my way I might as well stick to the cream.
#36. Secret Key Snail Repairing Toner: Honestly I don’t know what to think of this toner. I could not notice any difference. I guess I don’t need to be repaired then. Won’t buy again. Would rather pick up something else hoping it will work.
#37. The Balm Sexy Mama Translucent Powder: Really like this powder, not only because I love The Balm Packaging, but also because this works really well as a mattifying setting powder. It works so well that I already have a new one.
#38. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara: Or not so great lash mascara? I remember when I was a teenager and EVERYONE had this! This was THE mascara to own. So I picked it up again after like 10+ years without trying it, and I was not impressed. Short spider-leg lashes was all it gave me. Like maybe 5-6 of them on each lash. It is a mystery where the rest of my lashes went. I am definitely not buying this again.
