February Empties

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree face Wash Foam See my review here.
Repurchase?  I would, if it was not $14.99! I'm sure there's lots of more affordable foam cleansers out there that work just as well.
What I'm currently using to replace it: Lara Beauty Conditioning Cleanser for Sensitive Skin

Grateful Body Aphrodite's Feast Restorative Serum See my review here.
Repurchase? No. I know serums are on the pricey side but $40, seriously?
What I'm currently using to replace it: Skin RX Medi Peel Hyaluronic Moisturizer

Bioré Detoxify Daily Scrub (sample) I'm super picky when it comes to facial scrubs because most of them are rubbish in my opinion, and this one is no exception. The beads are too tiny, not abrasive enough and they vanish after 30 seconds!
Repurchase? No. 
What I'm currently using to replace it:  Burt's Bees Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub

Passion Savon Goat's Milk, Honey, Lavender & Cedar See my review here.
Repurchase? No, there are many handmade soaps out there that smell better and that don't melt as quickly.
What I'm currently using to replace it: other Passion Savon soaps

Passion Savon Cranberry & Rhubarb See my review here.
Repurchase? No, there are many handmade soaps out there that smell better and that don't melt as quickly.
What I'm currently using to replace it: other Passion Savon soaps

Made From Earth Lemongrass Tea Soap See my review here. 
Repurchase? I would, but I find it's very small for the price ($4.99)
What I'm currently using to replace it: Passion Savon soaps

LUSH The Ex-Factor Bath Bomb See my review here.
Repurchase? No, it does nothing for my skin and it doesn't really smell once in the bath.

LUSH Cinders Bath Bomb See my review here.
Repurchase? No, it does nothing for my skin and it doesn't really smell once in the bath.

Time & Again by GANZ Strawberry Swirl Bath Fizzy I was sent this product for consideration to review but honestly, I'm not sure it's worth a complete review because I really did not like it. I liked that it fizzed very slowly and it smelled amazing, but it did nothing for the bath except from staining the tub!
Repurchase? No.

Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste* See my review here.
Repurchase? No because I didn't notice much difference even after using up the whole tube!

Clairol Nice 'n Easy ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss* I seem to have one of these in every empties post I write but oh well! This is just your average conditioner that comes in a box of hair dye.
Repurchase? No. Even though this is available separately, it's just average and I'm still on the lookout for cruelty-free hair dyes. 
What I'm currently using to replace it: random conditioner

*These products are NOT cruelty-free


  1. Jai toujours pas encore poste mes empties de janvier et fevrier, tu me rappelles quil faudrait que je le fasse!

    Tu nas pas ete tres chnceuse avec les derniers produits, mais je vois que toi aussi tu aimes les produits avec du Tea Tree! L'odeur est bizarre, mais en meme temps, jtrouve que ca "sent efficace"!

  2. Like you it seems I only ever use up skin care and haircare. Actually, I have a hair treatment oil by Ojon I loved when I bought it, but then I got a good-sized sample of another one (Macadamia Natural Oil) that I much prefer and here I've got this whole bottle of the Ojon to get through... argh!

  3. I agree with you on the CREST 3d before Christmas I had finished the whole system and didn't see a difference. I have recently switched to an all natural toothpaste. I am curious to see if after I am done I notice any difference with it being more pure.

  4. I really like these posts!

    I've been trying to use up some items that have been sitting around in my stash as well. I don't like the idea of having stuff just "sitting there".

  5. shame none of it worked out! i use the whitening tooth paste as well and i dont see a difference either., but my mom continuous to buy it anyway lol

  6. You've used up a ton of stuff! I have been using the same toothpaste, I don't see much of a difference either after a year of using it! Lol! I like the way it makes my teeth feel, though, so I keep using it.

  7. Ooh, a toothpaste review! :) I didn't expect that. I've used that toothpaste before too and it's kinda pricy :p

  8. @Ms Bubu : Ahah pour moi c'est un incontournable de poster mes empties à chaque mois, ça me motive tellement! Oui l'odeur du Tea Tree est bizarre et je ne peux pas dire que ces produits m'ont estomaqué ou quelque chose comme ça mais pour le nettoyant, j'ai surtout aimé le fait qu'il soit en mousse ahah

    @Sarah S. : Ahahah I know, I hate when it happens! I've heard great things about both Macadamia and Ojon though.

    @Mrs.Makeup : Yes, Crest 3D White products are pretty disappointing for the price. I have contemplating switching to an all natural toothpaste too but I have consultated some dentist on this and they all told me that fluorure is important in preventing decay...

    @Arezu: I know, it drives me crazy too! I'm glad you like these posts (:

    @Donna Dell : My mother usually never buy whitening toothpaste because we both agree they never work and she always buy the brand that is on sale but I'm always excited to try a new brand because of my naturally yellow teeth x=

    @ Sarah : I liked the way it made my breath super fresh for a long time but appart from that... nothing )=

    @ Rainy Days and Lattes : Yes, it's kinda pricey for the quality -_-
