Empties Post Volume XI: June 2013
Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Brazil Nut Conditioner is a really lovely deeply nourishing natural hair conditioner. I liked it so much that I even added water at the end to get the last bits attached to the side of the bottle! Surya Brasil is a wonderful company, and they make simply amazing products!
Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner is a staple in our household. It is an effective, affordable, and cruelty free line, and it even works well on my naturally curly hair.
Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Soap was the first luxury soap that I ever used. I began using it when I was a teenager, and in the last few years started using it again. It does a great job exfoliating the skin leaving it beautifully radiant. It is a very dense and long lasting bar, therefore it always feels like a huge accomplishment when I actually finish one!
Shannon's Soaps Vanilla Bean Soap is pure heaven. I am always a little sad when I finish one of Shannon's beautiful handmade soaps because they are so delightful.
REN Omega 3 Night Repair Serum and the Mayblossom Balancing Cleansing Gel were both part of my REN Six of the Best Set- the Omega 3 Night Repair Serum is a lovely antioxidant rich oil night serum- you simply apply it at night and then you wake up with gorgeous glowing skin. Some people do complain that the scent is too earthy for them, but the results are undeniable. The Mayblossom Balancing Cleansing Gel is fantastic for people with combination to oily skin, and I loved using it with my Clarisonic.
TATCHA sample packets of Gentle and Deep Polished Rice Enzyme Powders- I regularly use the Classic Rice Enzyme Power, but the Gentle and Deep versions are equally fantastic. TATCHA is a line that is well worth your attention- it really does live up to the hype! These cleansing/exfoliating powders leave your skin indescribably clean and baby-bottom soft. AMAZING!!!
Miscellaneous perfume samples- none of which resulted in purchases. Nothing was wrong with any of them- they simply didn't really work well with my body chemistry.
