Empties 33 Bodycare

I'm just going to dive right in! Let's talk about some empties...

Meow Meow Tweet Grapefruit + Mint Liquid Castile Soap (Discontinued)

This was a very light liquid soap that I used as a hand and body wash. It was very liquidy, but it did lather really well, and like most soaps, it got the job done. I did really like the blend of uplifting grapefruit with invigorating mint, it was a nice way to wake up in the mornings!

Meow Meow Tweet Tangerine Basil Body Soap*

This body soap, interestingly enough, didn't really smell like basil, but it did have a bright scent that I loved. It also has poppy seeds, which is a unique way to give your skin some exfoliation and improve circulation. Like all of the MMT soaps, this lathered really well, got the job done, and didn't strip my skin of it's natural oils!

Acure Organics Clarifying Shampoo

I used to love the Acure hair care, but I'm still not sure how I felt about this shampoo. It definitely wasn't clarifying, but I'm not sure if it did anything else for my hair. I won't be repurchasing, and I'm going to try out a different brand for the time being. 

Acure Organics Clarifying Conditioner

While I liked the conditioner more than the shampoo, I still feel like this didn't really 'wow' me. It was moisturizing, which is great, and it got the job done, but it didn't really stand out as an amazing conditioner. 

Meow Meow Tweet Lavender Bergamot Deodorant Stick

The MMT deodorants are some of the best in the natural / green beauty isles. They're vegan, cruelty free, organic, fair trade, and palm oil free. And this one even comes in a biodegradable, zero waste stick as opposed to the more common plastic tube.

The formula is really nice too - it's moisturizing, long lasting, and smells wonderful, although it can feel a little heavy during the Summer time, when you're sweating a lot. But it's still one of the best deodorants I've used, and I'll be repurchasing. 

Cocoon Apothecary Touchy Feely Body Lotion

I'm so picky with body lotions, but I really loved this one. It's light, like a normal, conventional lotion, but it sinks in quickly and provides real, nourishing properties. It also comes in a beautiful glass pump jar that I've reused and repurposed! I won't be repurchasing right now, because I'm playing around with handmade body care, but I will keep it in mind for future lotion purchases!

With love, 

Sarah
