Empties – June 2017: My Final Thoughts on Products I’ve Finished

Every now and then, when I have built up a box full of empty product bottles, I like to go through them all and post my final thoughts.  I planned to do this sooner, but it turns out I only ever get around to doing this every six months or so.  Multiple moves and a home purchase have taken up…

Herbivore Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar Review

Herbivore Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar is an excellent face cleanser for anyone with oily or acne-prone skin.  It cleans very deeply and helps diminish the appearance of acne almost immediately.  I found that it started purging my skin right away.  Within a few days I had significantly fewer clogged pores. The idea of cleansing bars seemed an odd one to me…

Drunk Elephant Pekee and Juju Cleansing Bar Review

Drunk Elephant Pekee and Juju cleansing bars are products I’ve been meaning to try out for awhile.  I’m a big fan of Drunk Elephant and their brand philosophy (natural, scientifically proven ingredients, cruelty free, fragrance free etc).  I’m also intrigued by the idea of cleansing bars (travel-friendly skincare for the win!).  Plus, these don’t contain any harsh surfactants or irritating…

Farmacy Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil Review

Farmacy Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil is a natural(ish) cleanser that dissolves makeup and then when water is added it turns into a milk and rinses away.  I found it to be reasonably effective at removing makeup, although it didn’t do as good a job at removing eye makeup as some other cleansing oils and balms I’ve used. This cleansing oil…

The…

Boscia Tsubaki Oil Infused Exfoliating Powder Review

I have been using Boscia Tsubaki Oil Infused Exfoliating Powder a few mornings a week for a couple months now, and I quite like it.  After testing out Tatcha’s Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder (full review HERE), I knew I wanted to try out as many other powder cleansers as I could.  Powder cleansers are totally awesome, and I’m now…

Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil Balm Review

Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil Balm is a really effective makeup remover that comes as a solid balm, but melts into an oil cleanser when warmed in your hands.  When massaged onto dry skin, the black balm dissolves all makeup, even waterproof eyeliner and mascara.  Then when you start adding water, it turns into a milky liquid and rinses…

One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser Review

One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser is a great natural foaming cleanser that doesn’t strip or irritate sensitive skin.  I’m a big fan of One Love Organics, and this cleanser didn’t disappoint. It’s a golden gel that produces minimal foaming action when you apply it to your face.  It doesn’t use any sulfates or harsh surfactants, so it…

Empties – December 2016: My Final Thoughts on Stuff I’ve Finished

Something I’ve been meaning to do ever since starting this blog is give my final thoughts about products once I finish using them up.  I started the blog in May 2016, and I’ve been saving my empties ever since.  Originally, I planned to do this every few months, but I’ve been procrastinating…so this is going to be a long post.…
