Everything I Used Up in the Past 6.5 Months.

bath products + beauty empties

Wow guys, I guess I really have been slacking on a beauty empties post as it’s been almost seven months since my last one. Oops!

I kept forgetting to film one. So this empties series is PACKEDDDDDD! Watch the video on IGTV to see how many times I said “wonderful” (a LOT), how many bath soaks I used up (also a LOT) and how many bottles of Dr. Bader I used up.  Just a casual 20 products… try not to judge me too harshly…  again, this is over a rather long period of time!

Also: these are just things I’ve finished. So some of them I definitely used up within the six months but some I’d already been using for months before but happened to finish within this time period. Still, it’s quite a bit and definitely interesting to see over a longer period of time. And a lot of these products are bath products which go more quickly for me… I take a bath almost every night! It’s also strange that I did not empty out a single bottle of shampoo or conditioner in this time period. I promise I do wash my hair! I think this is a compound factor of a) getting a lot of blowouts and b) trying a bunch of things. My beloved purple shampoo and Olaplex are both just about out!

  1. Susanne Kaufmann Bath Oil // my favorite bath oil. It smells heavenly and leaves skin silky soft!

    I’m going to try that Ren body serum – I’ve used that brand in the past and liked it a lot. Ugh, tho: the Bader Rich Cream does not work for me, unfortunately! I ordered it from the previous VG sale, and have realized it’s causing burning, itchy welts on my face & neck…so I may have a very $$$$ hand cream now…. plus I was horrified at the excessive packaging.

      Aw man, so sorry to hear that!!!! It really does show that everyone’s skin is different. I’ve never heard of that sort of reaction! I have had people tell me it broke them out but never that. I’m sorry that it didn’t work for you!
