Beauty Product Empties for April 2023

Press Sample & Purchased (Affiliate Links)

I managed to use up 9 full-size products in April 2023, and I am a bit surprised that I finished 4 full-size body products, 2 full-size haircare products and 3 full-size skincare products. Here is what I finished:
Spongellé Body & Soul Detox Buffer in Eternal Mint ($28.00 each from Spongellé): is a body wash infused buffer with ashwagandha root extract, and it includes its own chakra stone for meditation and cleansing. Helping to wash away negativity, each crystal creates a new found sense of energy– based upon the 7 chakras. This collection is such a meditative way to enhance your bath and shower experience, and they also make fantastic Mother's Day gifts! Purple is Eternal Mint (Third-Eye Chakra), and it smells and feels amazing! Purchase Again? I have more of their beautiful body wash infused buffers to use before I purchase any, but I will certainly when I run out.

Rituals Sensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel Sensation and Rituals Yogi Flow Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil Foaming Shower Gel Sensation (both are discontinued scents): I fell in love with this innovative shower gel formula from the very first moment that I used it. As I have said before, it's an extraordinary take on the ordinary, and for me it makes my bathing experience anything but mundane. Their unique gel to foam technology not only makes it immensely fun to use, but it exceeds my every expectation of what a body cleansing gel should do. It cleans beautifully, smells glorious, and leaves the skin lusciously hydrated and soft. Furthermore, the rich dense foamy texture lends itself to being one seriously amazing shaving cream that cleanses, softens, and gives a seriously close shave. My legs have been transformed into the most soft and silky skin imaginable, and this gorgeous product has quickly given the boot to all of my other shaving creams! Purchase Again? I have a couple of other scents from Rituals, and I am about to open another one! I will definitely purchase their current scents as soon as I finish my last can!

Rituals Sakura Spring Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Oil (discontinued scent): You simply apply a small amount of the shower oil to your skin and as soon as it has contact with water it emulsifies and turns from an oil consistency to a thin milky emulsion that effectively cleans the skin, and leaves it delectably soft smooth and moisturized. The scent is delightful and uplifting, but not  too sweet. While the scent is lovely it does not linger since it is, for the most part, washed away. Purchase Again? I have one bottle of one of their other scents left, and once I finish that I will purchase one of their current scents.

Derma E Ultra Lift Firming DMAE Moisturizer ($23.95 for 2 oz. from Derma E and Ulta): I liked this face cream a lot. It was hydrating, not-too-rich and it left my skin soft, smooth and supple. Purchase Again? I have so many open jars of cream that it is unlikely that I will replenish this.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Wipes ($62.00 for a 3-pack from Macy'sAmazonViolet Grey and Neiman Marcus): My eyes can be particularly sensitive when it comes to makeup and makeup removers, and I have even found many so-called gentle eye makeup removers to be very irritating to my eyes. When I was first introduced to Koh Gen Do's Cleansing Water and Cleansing Water Cloths I assumed that I would be disappointed as I had been so many times before. However, much to my surprise these products actually lived up to the claims made (in fact exceeded them). Not only did my eyes not sting, but it removes all traces of makeup, and the surrounding skin was left feeling soft and supple. Purchase Again? Without a doubt, I love these fabulous wipes, they are by far the best that I have ever used.

Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey 2-in-1 Face Scrub & Cleanser ($15.99 for 3 oz. from Mielle OrganicsTarget and Walmart): Not only is Mielle a leader in superb haircare, you can also enjoy their easy-to-use skincare products! Now, you can simplify your skincare routine with this two-in-one face scrub & cleanser combo. It gently exfoliates and cleanses the pores while removing dirt, oil and impurities for skin that is smooth and soft to the touch. A little goes a long way, and with daily use, your face will be glowing and flawless. Purchase Again? I have a lot of facial scrubs to use up first, but I would definitely use this again!

Mop C-System Hydrating Conditioner ($22.00 for 8.45 oz. from Amazon): This color-safe, antioxidant-rich conditioner hydrates, and smooths my unruly curly tresses, and it does an impressive job making it frizz-free. I will definitely need to get another bottle when I finish this one up! Purchase Again? I have one bottle left!

Viori Citrus Yao Conditioner ($18.00 for 2.8 oz. from SephoraViori and the Viori Amazon Store): The delectable citrus aroma is extraordinarily pleasant and delightful. This nourishing conditioner leaves my hair very manageable and my scalp comfortably hydrated. It detangles hair, fights frizz and leaves hair soft, silky smooth and shiny. It does not weigh hair down or leave behind an oily residue. Purchase Again? I have their unscented bar to finish first, but yes!
Overall Assessment: I am pleased that I was able to finish 9 full-size products in April, and I didn't have to toss anything out that went bad before I was able to finish it. What did you use up, toss out, give away, or return in April? Any real winners or losers to share?

  1. Even though I don’t use the same type of products I still love reading your empty posts.
    This is a lot to finish in one month.

    1. Thank you, Marcia! If you tolerated fragranced body products, I think that you would like the variety I featured here! It is a lot to finish in a month, but it looks more impressive than it actually is since so many of these products were more than 50% empty before I finished them in April.
