Hello my dolls!
I feel like I haven’t done an empties post in a long long time. And that is because I had combined my regular empties with my project pan. Thinking back, I thought it would be easier that way but I never realized how confusing it must have been for you all, so for that I apologize!
But here we are, with a new empties post. To be totally honest, it’s not very much. I’m hoping I can finish more products as the year progresses, whether that’s from my project pan or my regular ones. So let’s get started on this post.
I do want to start filming more YouTube videos and take the full plunge, so I will most likely have more videos to go with my posts, that way I have content on both platforms.

Haircare / Bath & Body / Misc
Le’t’s start with these products today, I didn’t think it was necessary to separate it all because I don’t have enough of one category, so this section will be mixed.
First up we have the April Showers Hair Spray which I believe I got from the dollar store. I got it a LONG time ago, so I’m glad to be done with it. I hardly use hair spray, only special occasions when I want my hair to stay intact. It’s surprisingly good for only being a dollar.
Then I have the Bolero French Lavender & Citrus soap bar, also from the dollar store. I got it because it’s a pure vegetable soap, and it was CF! I loved this one so much because the lavender was so relaxing and soothing. I also like that this bar soap doesn’t leave my skin feeling waxy. I’ll have to pick up some more when I go to the dollar store again.
The Sensodyne Pronamel toothpaste I’m including because I had an “incident” (don’t think that’s the right word to use) where my teeth suddenly became very sensitive. It turned out to be “spinach teeth” because I had been having breakfast smoothies with loads of spinach. Who knew you could have too much of a good thing, right? Anyway, apparently spinach has a lot of oxalic acid which caused my teeth to feel very chalky, gritty, and sensitive. This toothpaste worked to get rid of sensitivity. I bought another one like this to have just in case, lol.
Then we have the Hello Kitty Hand & Mouth Wipes. I picked these up from an Asian supermarket, and they came in handy for my son and myself. They’re really good to have on-the-go. I do not recommend using these as makeup removing wipes because they can feel really rough on the skin, as they’re a mesh type.
I only finished one makeup product and that was the Colourpop Amber Crystal Setting Spray. Unfortunately CP no longer sells this on their site, which is a shame because I really liked it. It smelled kind of fruity but the scent was subtle. I wish I could buy it again!!
Lastly, the Select CBD Hemp Disposable Vape Pen. I mentioned this in my birthday haul last year that my husband got it for me and I absolutely love it! CBD has done wonders for my stress, anxiety and insomnia. While I still feel stress and some creeping anxiety, this CBD has lessen most of that. I actually haven’t felt close to having a mental breakdown in a long time, at least not a full-blown panic attack. It’s been good for me, and my hubby so lovingly bought me a replacement. 🙂
Most of these you guys might have already seen reviews for.
The Formula 10.0.6 Best Face Forward Daily Foaming Cleanser has been a favorite for years and I repurchased several times. Since I do have other cleansers I need to try out, I will not repurchase for a while, but I do love it. It’s so gentle on the skin. On the other hand, it does contain sulfates, so I do want to start moving away from those kinds of skincare products.
The Skin & Co Roma Boosting Anti-aging Serum was a small sample from an Ulta haul. A little goes a long way, it absorbed quickly into my skin. I really liked it even during the winter. It gave back some hydration to my skin. I looked into it but it’s not a CF brand which is a shame because I totally would have bought it! I need a serum right now anyway!
The Biossance Squalane & Probiotic Gel Moisturizer was so so good too! I have a new appreciation for gel moisturizers because they’re so lightweight and absorb into the skin so quickly. They’re also very smooth. This one moisturized my dry winter skin too and I have a feeling it would have been a good one to use all year-round.
The Ole Henriksen Truth Serum was another amazing product! I loved it from the first time I tried it. I love that it contains vitamin C. It was lightweight, absorbed QUICKLY into the skin. After using it for a while, I did notice my skin was brighter and I’m also convinced that this product lessen my breakouts because now that I’m out, I’m breaking out again 😦 I need to look into buying this product if the brand is CF.
The Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask was such a treat in my January Boxycharm. Even though the mask was a bit too big for my face, I appreciated the amount of serum the mask had. It was more than enough to massage into my face and neck. I did wake up with smoother, softer, and dewy-looking skin, just how I like it! 🙂
The Pacifica Coconut Milk Cream to Foam Face Wash was a new product for me. I hadn’t tried their skincare until now. I had switched to a cream cleanser for winter because I read that they were more hydrating and this was exactly what my dry, winter skin needed. I’m bummed that it was a travel size because I used it up quick. But once I’ve gone through the rest of my cleansers, I’ll be sure to repurchase this one for winter.
I’m sorry if I got too chatty for each product. I figured I could do that since it’s not that many products. Maybe it would be a good idea to do monthly empties even if it’s not that many products because it’s so easy for me to get carried away with words. LOL. I just try my best to explain my experience with these products because chances are, I’m not going to write reviews for most of these on the blog.
Anyway, I loved the majority of these products as you have already read. I am excited to keep using up some products because I really want to make a dent in my stash. I was going to wait to buy some things but I couldn’t help myself so I have a few hauls coming up.. LOL. So be on the lookout for those!
How often do you guys do empties posts?
Are you someone who produces plenty of empties or only a few?
