July Empties

This month my bin of empties seemed extraordinarily small. Maybe because last month I shared a declutter and empties and had a TON of items. Or maybe it was just that July was so busy that we barely used anything up in the craziness? Whatever the reason this batch is a little small- but it's only the 6th and I already have four items in for this month- so hopefully that will be a little more exciting.

Let's get started!

First up- cleaning products. I finished a bag of Tide Pods which I love since they are super easy to cart up and down the stairs to our basement laundry room. Since we share with the entire apartment building I can't just leave a bottle of detergent down there so carrying one pod down at a time is much easier then hauling a bottle of detergent up and down the stairs. I will continue buying these in the future when I get the couponing!

The Mrs Meyers Tub and Tile cleaner was not my favorite. I'm not a huge fan of their lemon scent and I felt like the cleaner wasn't getting everything. I love many of their products, just not this one.

I am a huge fan of the Mrs Meyers Dish Soap and Bluebell was a new scent for me and I am NOT a fan of it! I will gladly stick to my basil scent that I know I love from now on. The Bluebell was too floral and gave me a headache.

Two mini lotions finished up at work this month. The Gilcrist and Soames came in a Birchbox awhile back and I thought it was amazing lotion. My skin felt soft and the lotion was moisturizing without being too much.

The Aveeno was SUPER moisturizing but to the point where it was almost too thick for my hands. I think this would be a great lotion for super dry places- like feet!

I used up this sample perfume of Flowerbomb. I brought it with me when I traveled this month and loved it!

Two more body products. The first is a deodorant called Organic Island Deodorant which I bought on a YouTube recommendation by Brittany Vasseur  (VasseurBeauty) but it didn't work well for me! I've since switched back to my LaVanilla and am much happier!

This Softsoap Coconut Scrub has been hanging around forever and I still have one left to use up! I like it but not as much as I thought I would when I eyed it in the store. I don't think I would purchase this in the future.

Three Cake Batter Chapsticks used up this month. This is still my all time favorite and I will keep going back to them!

What have you used up lately?

  1. I, for one, am very impressed that you used up 3 chapsticks this month! I feel like I always lose mine before I get to the bottom. I've used the coconut Softsoap, and it's fine. Gets the job done, but like you said, not the greatest product.
