What I’ve Used Up | Fall 2012 Beauty Product Empties

I have never done an empties post before but was intrigued to do it. I have a horrible habit of not finishing products up. Although I “hit pan” every now and then, It is very rare that I finish any product as I am always trying out so many different products and never seem to reach the end of something. Lately I have been trying to change that and am motivated to start finishing things before I purchase or try out anything new. I think doing these empties posts is a great way to show readers the things I am currently using and the things that I use the most and also to do mini reviews on everything.

Onto the empties:

 IMG_0813

Osmia Organics Rose Clay Facial Soap(review here) – You can barely see the teeny tiny reminisce of soap left over but I used up the entire soap bar over the course of a few months or more. It lasted me quite awhile. I repurchased this soap immediately after using it up as it’s a staple of mine. It works wonders at removing makeup and doesn’t dry my skin out one bit.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Osmia Organics Body Oil: Wood(review here) – I had a tiny amount of this oil left when I took this photo but used it up soon after. It is super moisturizing and wonderful to apply on wet skin after getting out of the shower. The smell is extremely relaxing. I will definitely be purchasing more of Osmia’s body oils.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Osmia Organics Purely Simple Facial Cream (review here) – It took me awhile to use up this sample because a little bit goes a long way. I now have the full-size version because it’s my go-to moisturizer. Whenever my skin is feeling dry or irritated, I know that I can count on this cream to calm and hydrate my skin.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil – I have used up two bottles of Tea Tree Oil in the past few months. I love this stuff. I use it for everything from spot treating acne, cleaning my bathroom, adding in to face masks and hair washes, cuts, etc. It’s an essential.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Leahlani Skincare Aloe Day Dream Cream (review here) – This is another sample that I used up quite fast. It was wonderful to use as a daily moisturizer and I love how fast it absorbed into my skin. I love everything from this line and think this is a great daytime moisturizer.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Sugared Beauty Happy Face Scrub – This scrub was featured in my one of my Goodeboxes and I instantly fell in love with it. Right after running out of this scrub I placed an order for a full-size version and am currently using it nightly. I plan to a full review on it soon because I really, really love it.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Simple Sugars Sugar and Spice Body Scrub – This body scrub featured in my November Goodebox.I seriously used this up really fast because it smelled SO GOOD and made my skin feel really soft and moisturized. I am not sure if I will purchase a full size as I tend to make my own body scrubs.  The scent of this is very unique though and if I were to purchase a body scrub it would most likely be this one!
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

BFree Organics Facial Toner(review here) – I used this toner up pretty fast as I literally used it every single night after cleansing to remove excess makeup and to help fight blemishes.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Nature’s Gate Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner – I really love this shampoo and conditioner but have since switched over to only using oils to clean my hair (see my current haicare routine blog post here) I had no intentions of changing over to anything else when using this shampoo and conditioner but I found that the ingredients just weren’t as clean as I would like and I also wanted to try to do the “No-‘Poo” method for at least six months to see how my hair responded. If I do decide to go back to using natural shampoo again I will probably use this again as I just love the smell of it so, so much and it makes my hair feel so soft.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Heritage Rosewater and Glycerin Spray – I go through bottles of these all the time because I use it for just about everything and many times throughout the day. It works wonderful as a facial moisturizer and body moisturizer. It is great for spraying on the hair. It is so incredibly moisturizing. I even dedicated an entire video about it on my youtube awhile back. I swear by this for glowing skin!
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Lauren Brooke Creme Concealer- I had a sample of this concealer in “Light” and it lasted me quite awhile. Luckily I have another back up concealer sample to finish before I purchase the full size. It is definitely one of my favorite concealers — it is very creamy and perfect for covering redness and blemishes. I like it for under my eyes too but it does tend to crease throughout the day.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Tom’s Of Maine Simply White Toothpaste - This is my favorite natural toothpaste that I have found so far. I plan to try out others since running out of this but it really is a great toothpaste. Helps to whiten my teeth and leaves my mouth feeling extra clean.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Rainwater Botanicals Pumpkin Facial Mask - Wonderful product. A few months ago I had breakouts left and right and I had some hyper-pigmentation left over. After using this sample within a few weeks the redness and irritation was completely gone. It smells like delicious pumpkin and spice. It stings a little bit but that just means it’s working! I will be getting myself a full size version of this because it’s nice to know it’s there in case I need to clear up any pigmentation or blemishes! It works FAST.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Sequoia Beauty Honey Berry Enzyme Mask (review here) -This sample was not hard for me to use up within a matter of days. It is just so delicious. The scent, the texture – everything about it. I am sad to be out of it already because my skin literally craves it now! it is so incredibly moisturizing and did I say delicious!?

  2. I love posts like this. I haven’t acquired many empties yet because I keep buying new things and trying those out before finishing my others. Once I acquire enough I’m hoping to do a post like this! Xo, Audreiana from
    True Beauty By Nature

  3. Adore empties posts, keep em coming! :)

  4. Great line up!
    Are you concerned about the flouride in your toothpaste? I’ve been reading a lot about it and it is very dangerous. I have been using homemade tooth powder and I know there are many good natural products on the market.

  5. I love this idea, looking forward to more!

  6. I’m totally the same, I get so excited about new things and then I leave the older and then come back and so on! Are you a fan of Natures Gate shamp or conditoner? I tried one was not a big fan

  7. i kinda like the empties posts! esp when you link back to original reviews if a product has been on the site before. keep it up!
