Empties from February 2022

As you can see, I had an unusually slow February in the month of empties! It isn't because February is a short month, but instead it is the direct result of testing 
Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream (preliminary post HERE) the way that professor Bader suggests, and that means using this product alone. Therefore, I only used a face cleanser, sunscreen and The Rich Cream for more than 30 days in order to properly test and evaluate this luxurious cream. Next month, I am sure that you will see a few skincare empties since I will have concluded my testing, and I will have posted my review.

This month I only used bath and body washes and hand soaps, and that's it! Here is what I used:

REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body WashThis is a soothing and delicately fragrances body wash that not only smells utterly delicious, but it also hydrates, soothes and thoroughly cleanses the skin. It is perfect in the shower or bath, and it is emollient enough to use for shaving your legs! Purchase Again? Unquestionably, this is one of my all-time favorite body washes! ($36.00 for 6.8 oz from RENSephora and Bloomingdale's)

Spongellé with Love | Freesia Pear Heart BufferSpongellé Body Buffers are brilliant body wash-infused sponges effectively and gently clean and exfoliate the skin, and they also leave the it deliciously baby soft, smooth, supple and moisturized. They really excel in their ability to clean and exfoliate the skin while delighting the senses with their delightful aromas. 

You simply dampen the Spongellé Body Wash Infused Buffers with water to activate the very satisfying lather. Once you have used up all of the body wash, the sponge itself is left quite intact, and therefore all you need to do is use it in conjunction with your favorite liquid or bar soaps. The hanging ribbon allows the buffer to dry out easily, but I recommend hanging it outside of the moist environment of the shower to avoid bacterial growth. Purchase Again? I have another couple of scents that I am about to open ($14.00 from Spongellé)

Potager Soap Co. Lemonngrass Soap: Lemongrass is one of my favorite aromas, and Potager Soap Co. has created one of the finest permutations of that scent. This uplifting aroma is an unmitigated delight to the senses. The creamy lather is very satisfying to the touch, it thoroughly cleans the skin, and never leaves it dry or stripped. Their soaps are made in small batches in Concord, Massachusetts, and they are cruelty-free, vegan and certified organic. Furthermore, this is a woman-owned company that is invested in sustainable practices. Purchase Again? I have about 5 more of their beautiful soaps to use before buying more! ($7.98 for 4.5 oz. from Potager Soap Co.)

Baylis & Harding Lemongrass & Ginger Natural Hand Soap: is a delicious blend of Lemongrass that is tempered by the spiciness of ginger, and it has a beautiful complexity to it. It is an affordable and sustainable luxury hand soap that is a joy to use and it smells utterly delectable. Furthermore, it leaves your hands soft and moisturized, rather than dry and stripped. Purchase Again? Without a doubt! ($5.99 for 16.9 oz. from Target)
Overall Assessment: It was definitely a slim month in the land of empties since I was only testing Augustus Bader The Rich Cream, but I imagine that I will have a few more next month. At least I really loved everything that I used this month! What did you use up, toss out, give away or return in February?

  1. The Spongelle Freesia & Pear is my favorite among the three scents. It's so lovely and light! I will try the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash after I make a little more headway on the Molton Brown Travel Set I bought. It sounds right up my alley! I have a Potager soap I received for Hanukah a year ago that I have been using to fragrance my lingerie drawer. I need to take it out and use it! Good month in spite of your limits to bath & body products!

    1. The Freesia & Pear really is spectacular, and you are right that it is so lovely and light! I highly recommend the REN Moroccan Rose Otto body Wash, it really is one of my all-time favorites! I have a few Molton Brown bottles to use before I buy another body wash, but REN is a repeat purchase! I can't wait for you to use that Potager soap because they make amazing soaps! I just opened another one!

  2. Love the idea of sharing your empties! I’ve been meaning to get some of that Potager soap and now I’m motivated!

    1. I love seeing other people's empties posts so much, and I like to see what I actually use up within a month! I HIGHLY recommend Potager soaps, they are so lovely!

  3. I wish I could use Spongelle. I like looking at them but the fragrance is too strong for me.

    1. I wish that you could too, Marcia! They are definitely too fragrant for you!
