Life in Mascara: Empties #3

Empties #3

Seems like I have amassed quite a bit of empties since my last empties post here. So here is what I think about these items:

1. The Body Shop Vitamin E Body Butter- Loved the smell of this. Reminds me so much of this cold cream my mom used to wear when I was little. It feels to me like adult baby lotion. I absolutely love it and feel like I could use this one all year until winter when my dry skin would need a bit more. 

2. Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser- I have had a bottle of this in my house since college. It is a hands down no brainer reach for one step product. Removes even waterproof makeup without tugging and over drying. I feel like no matter what, I will always have a bottle of this laying around.

3. Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo- It was a sad day when I finished this bottle. This stuff realy extends your wash for up to 5 days (well for me it did). I would need to use a bit on the 3rd day and then layer on a bit more for the 4th and 5th day. I never had any visible build up of white patches. It did its job and gave my hair a fresh scent and bounce to it.

4. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre- Such a sweet innocent scent. Really miss having it in my daily life. It brings back a lot of memories for me as well and I really like that in a scent. It should be able to denote times in your life when you were really happy. I think that is what scent is all about.

5. The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter- I think this one is a great one to use during the colder months, maybe not so much in the Spring when I used it as I felt it was a bit much. Nonetheless, it smelled great and kept my skin hydrated.

6. Nourish Organic Replenishing Organic Argan Oil- Another sad day when I finished this product. I love using oils right before I get out of the shower. I like to massage some into my skin as a base for hydration before body butter (yes my skin is that dry). This product was absorbed quickly into the skin and had a very nice smell and not the granny scent some Argan Oils tend to have. Also, I noticed my skin would not get irritated after shaving when I would use this afterwards. BIG plus for me here!

7. The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist- With the same nostalgic scent as the body butter, I enjoyed spritzing this on my face every morning. The actual sprayer is one of my favorites as it delivers a very fine and even mist that some toners don't have so your face doesn't feel wet and dripping. Instead it feels refreshed and hydrated. 

8. Fresh Soy Fresh Cleanser- Have really been missing washing my face with this every morning if nothing other than because of its crisp cucumber scent. Full review here

9. Boots Botanics Organic Face Oil- I went through this at a rather embarrassingly fast pace. Slathered my entire top half with this stuff. Can they please make it in a gallon size? See my thoughts here.  

10. Lush Tea Tree Water- I credit this product with keeping spots and irritations away from my face. My skin has done a complete 360 since I started using proper skin care and Lush was the start of that. Again, the sprayer here is one that delivers an even mist over the face.

11. Crystal Essence Chamomile and Green Tea Deodorant- Perfect for everyday use if you are not going to be doing intense sweating.
