I know I’m writing this post a bit late, it’s already mid-October but I couldn’t find the time to work on it as I was easing back into blogging at the end of last month. I also have decided to update my schedule and only post here on my blog once a week, and twice on my YT channel until further notice.
Being that it’s practically holiday season, I tend to be busy with family affairs more than anything. It’s not just the holidays for us, it’s also birthday season so it’s definitely a lot. Anyway, my schedule will be as followed:
- Tuesday/Thursday: YouTube videos
- Wednesday: Blog posts
CL has school and he will also be starting OT this week, so my schedule is filling up quickly, which gives me less time to work on the blog. I also kind of plan on getting a temporary part time job for the rest of the year, so I have no idea how that will affect my schedule moving forward.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know because you deserve an explanation as to why I’ve been posting less. But rest assured, I’m still here. I love blogging and I don’t plan on quitting! I love this platform way too much!
Right, onto today’s post! My recent empties from September!
Note: these empties span over three months (June-September)
September 2019 Empties
Starting with the Bolero Pineapple, Coconut & Lime Pure Vegetable Soap. I have talked about these before and how much I love them because they lather up SO MUCH! I loved the subtle scent, I didn’t detect the coconut as much.
The Cascadia Soapery Mint & Aloe Body Wash was quite refreshing. We had these samples when we stayed at the beach over the summer. Very well-made products and they’re made here in the PNW! 😀
The White Company White Lavender Body Lotion smells fantastic. It was very moisturizing and because of its size, I decided to use it as a hand lotion and it didn’t let me down. Took me a while to finish because I didn’t need a lot.
The Gold Bond lotion wasn’t the best lotion. I think it’s more suited for dry skin and it’s pretty thick so it wasn’t my favorite. I used it as a hand lotion as well because I wash my hands too much but it didn’t do shit.
The Dove Foam Conditioner was okay. I liked the foam aspect of it and how lightweight it felt, but I didn’t get any results? My hair felt nice and hydrated and soft when applied, but as soon my hair dried, my hair felt frizzy and dry. I only noticed this with continued use. Don’t like it.
Below you’ll see I have two empties of the YesTo Cleansing Facial Wipes. I haven’t had much luck with this brand unfortunately. These wipes felt so rough on the face, I ended up using them to remove swatches and even then they felt scratchy.
The Thayer’s Rose Petal toner is among one of my favorites ever, I’m beginning to wonder if this is my holy grail! Left my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed and very cleansed. The smell of rose petals was subtle and wonderful! I repurchased the lavender version and really liking it too so far.
I finished the Wet n Wild lash glue which I think is decent, but I have found a better one that comes with BH Cosmetics lashes. 🙂
The NYX Matte Liquid Liner is definitely my holy grail eyeliner. I’ve repurchased this for many years now. I haven’t found another I like better in the same price range.
I finally gave up with the ABH Clear Brow Mascara. All this time I thought it was something I did wrong but no. I got fed up that my brows felt like hairspray was used on them, and it was kind of a pain to take it off properly without needing to wipe too harshly. Got a much cheaper replacement.
The Tony Moly I’m Real Cherry Blossom Mask Sheet was such a treat. TM isn’t CF unfortunately, but for the time being they are my only exception because they make amazing, high-quality products and a lot of the products I’ve bought over the years are affordable. These mask sheets are some of my all time favorite.
Lastly, the Green Roads Relax Bears On-the-Go I picked up at a smoke shop near me because they were on sale and are cheaper than another ones I have. Their CBD concentration is much lower than my other ones (these are at 10mg each whereas my other ones are 24mg each) but I love that they’re sweet and sour gummy bears! 🙂
