July 2018: Empties & Tossed Report

Time for the Empties & Tossed Report!

I am finishing up some full bottles of skin care products and finally repurchasing some favorite items. I feel like I am closer to getting a full routine down that makes my skin just glow! This month I had 18 full sized empties and quite a few are re-purchases.

Some of the standout items here include:

My face wipes of choice, above and beyond, are Formula 10.0.6 Wipe Your Face Off. You see them every month. Don't let the grapefruit fool you, they are beyond gentle and entirely effective. This brand is often Buy 1, Get 1 40% off at Ulta and I totally recommend them!

I received this Shiseido Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream as a sample. It is THICK and just saturates the skin. This is not for those who like a lightweight moisturizer. Love how it penetrates my dry skin! I don't need to repurchase another for a while, but this is totally in the running in the future.

Hempz Goji Orange Lemonade Body Spray is fantastic! Smells like a bright summer morning. Alcohol isn't the fist ingredient, so I spray it in my hair. Like my moisturizers, I don't need a body spray for a long time, but when I do, it will be this one.

Vichy LiftActiv Supreme is another heavy weight moisturizer that seeps into my skin. You can feel the hydration! Again, no need for me to shop for another for quite some time, but this is going on the repurchase list.

I won't repurchase Mario Bedescu Vitamin A D E Neck Cream because I feel like it's an extra step (because another, among the 14 I do, is really making or breaking my time...) but I just use my regular products on my neck now. If you need some high end but not super expensive skin care products, MB is an awesome brand.

Japanese Cotton Lobo Organic Puffs can be found on Amazon. The cotton used here is organic and unbleached. I do plan to repurchase these!

Of the 8 samples that I used, you have already heard me rave about the Sulwhasoo Radiance Energy Mask and Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum. I am also enjoying the Purito Galacto Niacin 97 Power Essence but need to try it more. Tony Moly Banana Hand Milk is a delightfully thick formula but the banana scent is not my jam.

I recently got a little tanner and needed to dig through my stash for darker foundations. On the way in, I decided to pull out at least 5 items to toss. Instead, I came up with 7 and also decided to just toss the Hard Candy Turn Me Matte drops, too.

Time for the totals!

Month of July:

Totals: 18 items, full or deluxe sized / 8 packets or samples / 8 items thrown out

Empties Report Year to Date: 131 items / 77 packets
Thrown out Year to Date: 99 items
