Empties #1: Avalon Organcs, 100% Pure + More

I have been collecting all of my empties over the last few weeks, and I'm ready to do my first empties post. I'm excited to do this because I've watched so many empties videos on YouTube, and I feel like this is one of the real beauty blogger posts.

Ocean Tide + Sea Salt // Paddywax

Have you ever picked up a candle that says "Fresh Linens" and not been impressed? Did you really notice any scent? Probably not.

But this candle, if I had to describe it, smells like fresh linens should. I loved this candle, I loved the scent, the quality, how long it lasted, even the adorable jar. I received this as a gift, but I would definitely purchase this.

Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream // Nubian Heritage

I have a love/hate relationship with this stuff. At first I loved the scent and texture, then I found the scent too strong, and now I love the scent again. This is not an intensive moisturizing cream, so it's better for the warmer months. Nubian Heritage has another hand cream with a Chai scent that sounds dreamy, so I will probably purchase that one next time.

Moisturizing Cream Shave in Peppermint // Avalon Organics

I like this, but I don't love it. The peppermint was really refreshing. I didn't notice any irritation, even under my arms. I would repurchase this, because it is such an affordable product that you can't go wrong.

Argan Oil SPF Facial Lotion // 100 Percent Pure

I love this product so much, I've already repurchased it. It is the one skincare product I absolutely have to have. It goes on white so I like to apply, give it time to sink in, and then work it in a bit more. This protects my skin from the sun while hydrating and soothing my sensitive skin.

Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara // e.l.f

I'm not picky when it comes to mascara, but I do appreciate some volume. I also prefer waterproof mascara, just in case the tears come out. This is a really good every day mascara that provides some volume, without being over the top. But it's not very buildable, and it doesn't add that much length. However, it's a three dollar mascara, so I think you get what you pay for.

Have you used any of these empties?

Until next time,
