Hello wonderful people! I hope your day is happy & productive. I know I've been working my butt off as of late. Today's post is one I've been putting off for quite a long time & I'm not entirely sure why; I'm here to talk about some product empties. This is my first empties post but hopefully not my last. Let's do it to it!

face and body products

This empties is mainly about face & body products. No make up this round. Overall nothing was bad. I don't have many negative things to say but some of them were not holy grail products. I'd rather go around trying different items than purchasing some of these again. I'll get a little bit more detailed for you. :]

face and body products

From left to right:

Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 35 - I'm all about sporting SPF. After all, we've got to protect our beautiful skin from the harsh rays of the sun. But I'm not sure if this is the ideal sunscreen for me. I'm going to keep experimenting.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash - The scent of this pink grapefruit facial wash is absolutely heavenly. My cousin brought this from France & left it with me. If you look closely you can see the packaging is in French. This Neutrogena facial wash is refreshing & works well.

Aroma Naturals Fresh Citrus Blossom Castile Soap* - This soap was fresh & rejuvenating. I really enjoyed it. You can use it as a hand soap but I used in the shower as a body wash. Check out my review of more Aroma Naturals products. I love this soap & would recommend trying out some of their other scents as well.

Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray Onyx Storm* - I would absolutely purchase this deodorant body spray. It's gentle, cruelty-free, & smells delightful. It works well & even my boyfriend loved it. You can read my review of more Crystal Deodorant products here.

Home Health Oliva, Olive & Aloe Conditioner - This conditioner is one of those products that I didn't like at first, but I grew to love it. It's mild. The scent is soothing. It contains no artificial colors. It works well. 

Clean & Clear Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub, Oil-Free - The packaging says the scrub gently exfoliates & it does. It does what it says it's going to do, but it's not so magical of a product that I would purchase it again. I'm likely to try out a natural exfoliating product next time.

Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Organic Argan Face Serum* - Both my boyfriend & I enjoy using this face serum. It's hydrating & doesn't leave my oily skin feeling like a grease ball. It's small but powerful. You don't need much product.

That's a wrap for my product empties! I didn't have any negative experiences; everything worked well & did what it was supposed to. But that's not enough for me. I'm looking to buy more natural, cruelty-free items. Some of these empties I'll phase out in exchange for something that matches my needs. Have you ever tried any of these products? Anything sound promising? :]
