September Empties

Method Limited Edition Sunset Beach Hand Wash 12 oz. - This is a stretch on "September". I'm not sure when it got used up but I think it was months ago and I found it and realized it had missed the last post. Oops. I continue to buy Method soaps despite the SLS I would like to be avoiding because they smell so good!

Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Hand Soap Basil Scent 12.5 oz. - This is the one I did use up in September. I think these have cleaner ingredients than the Method soaps and I love the Basil scent. I also use a lot of household cleaning products from both of these brands.

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage 6 oz. - I took the end of this camping and finished it off. I really wanted a cream cleanser for hydration. I was using a pretty drying pink clay cleanser before this one so I really noticed the difference. I got a good deal on this on Amazon and while I don't feel like I definitely need this one again I might get it again. This was a relatively gentle cleanser but I might find another one that is more hydrating.

Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes with Cotton Extract 30 Towelettes - I keep buying these. I think it's almost impossible to find a cleansing towelette that has absolutely NO irritation, but these generally are comfortable and they are inexpensive. I have 3 more of these waiting for me right now!

Real Purity Roll-On Deodorant 1 oz. - Holy grail deodorant. I took 3 of these travel size deodorants to China and this is one of those. Over time my body does get used to the formula and I try something else for awhile but I always come back to this one!

Trader Joe's Anticavity Peppermint Toothpaste 6 oz. - I don't love the flavor of this but I keep buying it because I go to TJ's a lot! It's also inexpensive compared to many other natural toothpastes.

Pur Minerals Big Look Mascara with Argan Oil .12 oz. - I retired this one after about a month. I really liked the way this mascara looked on me after a second coat but after about a month the formula started to irritate me. I never know how long a mascara will work for me but I rarely can go a whole 3 months. I would probably try this one again at some point.

Silk Naturals Slick Stick Bramble, Silk Naturals Velvet Matte Lipstick Merlot, Real Purity Pearl Mocha Powder Blush, Gourmet Body Treats Natural Eye Shadow Gun Metal Gray


Silk Naturals Slick Stick Bramble - I absolutely adore this light wearable lavender gloss. It is beautiful and I would definitely repurchase it. This tube got pretty grainy and separated at this end as I hadn't worn it in awhile. Noticing this inspired me to search through my Silk Naturals colors and clean out the old ones!

Silk Naturals Velvet Matte Lipstick Merlot - This wasn't used up so much as the tube stopped advancing. Silk Naturals quickly sent me a replacement tube!

Real Purity Pearl Mocha Powder Blush .2 oz. - I'm always kind of amazed when I actually finish a powder cosmetic product because it happens so rarely. This has been my favorite blush for so long. I have a lot of blush right now so I won't repurchase right away, but I will definitely get another in the future. This is the most perfect light pink color that goes with everything and can't be overdone.

Samples:

Gourmet Body Treats Natural Eye Shadow Gun Metal Gray - I've had this sample forever. It is a sparkly buildable gray. I have never tried anything else from this brand. I wouldn't feel the need to buy this as I have several sparkly grays. Like most dark mineral colors this got EVERYWHERE.

Giovanni Ultra-Sleek Conditioner .25 oz. Packet - I took this sample camping just to have a conditioner. It worked fine but I don't feel the need to buy this one.

Acure Cleansing Gel Facial Cleanser - This one felt fine but it is for normal to oily skin so I would probably choose something more hydrating.

Acure Brightening Facial Scrub - I still love this stuff! It manages to make my skin feel ridiculously soft without over-scrubbing or irritating as long as I don't use it too often.

Acure Night Cream - This was very nice and hydrating. I would definitely consider this in the future. Loving Acure more and more all the time!
