This post will cover empties from October, November, and December. I apologize for the lack of posts!

Zoya Remove+ 8 oz. and 2 oz. - This is my HG nail polish remover which I consistently re-buy.

Alvera Aloe & Almonds all Natural Roll-On Deodorant 3 oz. - This is my new HG deodorant. Already almost finished with my second container! It smells amazing and lasts all day without irritation, which is very hard for me to find!

Grab Green Thyme with Fig Leaf Hand Soap 12 oz. - This was a decent hand soap but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it again. It includes sodium laureth sulfate.

Trilogy Vital Moisturizing Cream 1.18 oz. - I really, really loved this moisturizer. I have been using argan oil as of late but I would definitely get this one again. It is very moisturizing and comfortable and smells amazing.

The All Natural Face Organic Green Tea Hydrosol Toner 1 oz. - This made a nice travel toner but I prefer a more moisturizing one, usually rose water.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil .5 oz. - This argan oil is expensive but quite nice. All argan oil is great but the standout thing here is the bottle, which is glass and has a built in dropper.

The All Natural Face 100% Pure Organic Moroccan Argan Oil 1 oz. - This argan oil feels quite nice but does seem somewhat greasier than the Josie Maran. I'm currently using Acure and that has been my favorite so far.

Blisoma Pure Sensitive Skin Soothing Complex .5 oz. - I know a lot of people really like this, but I didn't find it very moisturizing and it smells odd to me, sort of like raisins. This was manufactured with a dropper to pick up product which did not work. I would not repurchase this.

Zoya Get Even Ridge Filling Base Coat .5 oz. - HG base coat. The ridge filling aspect is quite nice as painting my nails tends to make them very brittle.

Zoya Armor Topcoat/UV Block .5 oz. - HG top coat. This will keep your polish on for 7 days if your nails are in good shape, and there are times I've gotten 10!

Silk Naturals Beach Bum Multi-Purpose Trio - This was a GWP from several years ago. It was for sale but does not appear to be on the site anymore. This was a very pretty trio but due to the size of the containers it was difficult to use as a blush, so I ended up removing the product and using it in dish. This works quite well as both blush in that context or in the container as eye shadow.

Silk Naturals Catch GWP - This is a beautiful shimmery champagne light pink shadow that I would definitely purchase if it were permanent, but this was a LE GWP color.

Lucy Minerals Lucy Light Cream Foundation sample - Lucy foundation can be a bit drying but it looks gorgeous on. I use it more in warmer months. This color isn't quite right for me but pretty close and wearable. Lucy colors in general are a bit yellow on me as I am pretty red! Lucy is my HG for loose mineral foundation.

Silk Naturals Shirley Temple Organic Lipbalm .15 oz. - I love Silk Naturals balm formula. The Shirley Temple scent is quite strong. I probably wouldn't get it again as it isn't my favorite scent, but you really can't go wrong with any of the Silk Naturals lip balms!

Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes with Cotton Extract 30 ct. - I wouldn't call these HG as I feel like I might like something better in the future, but for the price these are great and cause minimal irritation. I have repurchased many times.

Acure Unscented Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes 30 ct. - I prefer these over the Burt's Bees ones as  they are a bit less irritating and a bit more moisturizing.

Squiggle Enamel Saver Toothpaste Peppermint 4 oz. - This does work quite well but due to extreme sensitivity I am transitioning back to traditional Sensodyne.

Herban Luxe Cosmetics Mascara Superlash Black .3 oz. and Superlash Navy .25 oz. - This was my HG for several years but I am starting to branch out a bit. This is a great mascara for a natural look but it does not provide significant lengthening or volume.

Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Mascara Black Magic .2 oz. - I am preferring this one over the Herban Luxe lately as it provides more definition and is buildable. It is also reasonably priced which is important for me as I change mascaras often for safety!

Christopher Drummond Beauty Duo-Phase Hydrating Concealer Medium .3 oz. This concealer is actually my everyday foundation, so I go through quite a lot of it. I have had much to say about it in the past. Major, major HG. I still have some Christopher Drummond so I have not bought any since the rebranding to Hynt Beauty but I will be repurchasing soon.

Box Naturals Lavender Towelettes, 2 sample towelettes - These burned my eyes. I would not repurchase them. I'm not really sure what the purpose of these is as they have essential oils in them. They may work on other parts of the face but not the eyes.

Mun No. 11 Anarose Rejuvenating Rose Toner sample - Rose toner is generally my favorite. This one was quite refreshing.

Silk Naturals N40 HD Foundation sample - I quite like the Silk Naturals cream foundation but it doesn't have enough coverage to hide my redness. This shade is one shade too light for me but blends pretty well.

The All Natural Face Vegan Glow Champagne Rose sample - This glow is a very nice light matte pinky peach. I would use this as a blush but it could be used as highlight on darker skintones.

Silk Naturals Opal Eye Color sample - This one is a beautiful iridescent white with pink glow. Love! Would definitely get this one.

Silk Naturals Conspiracy Eye Color sample - This one is a very light pearly bronze, a dupe for Urban Decay Suspect.

The All Natural Face Lemon Ice sample - This is a very light pale yellow, almost white, highlight color. Very shimmery and pretty.
