The Beauty Products I Used Up in Three Months (Empties #34)

The Beauty Products I Used Up in Three Months (Empties #34)

The Beauty Products I Used Up in Three Months (Empties 34) - 1.jpg

After three months of not buying any beauty products, I've got a couple empties to share!

Pure Anada Revive Moisturizing Serum

The Pure Anada products are made with great ingredients, so I was really excited to try this out.

Made with lemongrass and hyaluronic acid, I thought this would be great for my dry skin, but I don't think it did much. It wasn't irritating or anything, but it just didn't offer my skin any benefits. 

Pure Anada Smooth Priming Serum

I liked this serum a little more than the other one, but again, I don't think it did much. I loved the light, gel like texture, and the simple ingredients, but didn't notice a huge difference in hydration. 

Herbblissful Rosehip Repair Repairing Serum*

While this serum is meant for all skin types, it worked so well for my dry, sensitive, acne prone skin. I have to avoid most acne serums because they're too harsh, but this one cleared my skin right up while moisturizing and reducing inflammation. 

Herbblissful Argan Active Nourishing Moisturizer*

If you're looking for an all around great face oil, this is it. Made with argan oil, sunflower oil, and lavender essential oil, this moisturizer is great for all skin types. I used it underneath spf cream in the day and alone as a moisturizer at night and I found even in the Winter, this worked really well to moisturize and nourish my skin!

Wildcraft Deodorant Spray

I've never used a deodorant spray before and I'm really glad I tried this one. It's made with excellent, natural ingredients, it has a light, herbal scent, and it's really refreshing. There's no heavy, greasy feeling, and no residue is left on my clothes!

This works super well for an average day of activity, but it's not ideal for long workouts. (Honestly most deodorants aren't ideal for long workouts, especially natural ones!) And it's super easy to carry around because it's in a mostly plastic free, aluminum container - no breakable glass jars or totally plastic containers here!

Woodlot Nourishing Body Lotion

I'm very picky with my body lotions, but I really loved this one. The scent is nice and floral, but the black pepper essential oil gives the classic floral a really nice grounding, herbal scent! And the texture is very similar to a conventional lotion - it's very light, but very nourishing!

Lavami Citrus + Soothe Bath Soaks

I love the Lavami Bath Soaks - they're made with excellent, natural, plant based ingredients, and they smell heavenly. The scents are natural, of course, but they're very prominent, which is amazing because a lot of natural bath soaks just don't smell really good, or the scent fades after a minute or two. 

Kevin Murphy Maxi Wash

This was given to me by my stylist when my hair was freaking out - I think I was using too much dry shampoo, which was causing build up, so my hair was totally out of balance. This shampoo cleared everything right up, and it was gentle enough that I could use it twice a week without damaging my hair. If your hair needs a reset I highly recommend this wash!

Have you tried any of these empties?
