Project Pan Them All | May Empties

I can't say I'm proud of myself this month - especially compared to last month - as I haven't used up a lot of products but I guess that's what happens when you try a lot of new products all at once. I hope next month will be better!

Some times ago, I had a coupon for a free Johnson's baby product so I chose Johnson's Shea & Cocoa Butter Baby Lotion* because it smelled great... but it's just not moisturizing enough for my dry and irritated skin - how is it supposed to protect babies' delicate skin? Hmm...

I had the chance to try a couple of Made From Earth products and I was not disappointed by their Hollistic Honey Body Lotion. At $14.99, it's a bit pricey for the quantity of product you get and also for the cheap packaging, but I must say that this really works amazingly well on my eczema. I wish I didn't use it so fast!

Despite the moisturizing claims of Montagne Jeunesse White Chocolate Ultra Deep Cleansing Masque, my skin was not left "smooth as the softest cream" - I literally had to rush to slather on my richest night cream after use! This product still smells absolutely amazing though.

I bought Mitchum PowerGel Flower Fresh Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant Gel on sale for $2.97 at Wal-Mart because I really want to find a good cruelty-free anti-perspirant/deodorant, but I'm not really sure about this one. Some days it works, some days it won't... and I'm not even someone who sweats a lot!

I love how Burt's Bees Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub seems to leave a slight oily residue on my face after use instead of drying it out, which happens too often with many harsh face scrubs. I also love how this scrub is creamy, non foaming and that the exfoliating beads (which are really peach seeds) never "vanish" until you decide that you are done scrubbing your face.

I already mentionned this product in quite a few empties posts because I received a handful of them at my birthday but Fruits & Passion Pear Peony Foaming Bath is one of the worst foaming bath I have ever tried! It's absolutely overpriced for the poor foam that it created, not to mention it barely smell something and it lasts only 10 minutes!


  1. T'as quand meme fini une couple d'affaires :) Moi juin est bien parti, meme si la plupart cest des échantillons! Haha!

  2. haha i JUST finished the exact johnson's baby lotion too. i agree it's not that mosturizing. maybe for babies because their skin is already soft so it gives just the right amount of moisture. but it does smell so good! I also tried the chocolate mask too. I had the exact same experiences.. but it was so hard not to eat lol.

  3. I haven't been using up anything - hope that makes you feel better! I am almost done with my EcoTools body scrub, though. Sadly, I don't find it to be effective.

  4. Empties :D J'adore ces posts!
    Et tu en as quand même pas mal, du moins en comparaison à moi qui finis 1-2 produits par mois, tout au plus!

  5. The honey body lotion sounds and looks lovely. x

  6. I think you still did a good job on finishing up the products you listed! I'm usually pretty bad at doing that. Thanks for the review on the products as well!
