Empties. Love finishing products to the last drop, but not posting about them. But! You guys seem to love these kinds of posts – and I would do anything for You. So here we are 🙂 I feel it is important to show that the products I use and review are the same products. So shall we get started? To make matters more interesting this year, I will track what I use in each category & the totals for the month – which I might end up regretting already 🙂
Empties. Love finishing products to the last drop, but not loving posting about them for some reason. But! You guys seem to love these kinds of posts – and I would do anything for You. So here it is 🙂 Empties for the last two months, in all the glory.
Time for monthly empties! A necessary evil if you will – feels so good to be finishing products down to the very last drop, but such a drag to put these posts together.. The blogger in me wants to be onto the next best thing at all times, but it is also important to show people that the products I am reviewing are the same products I am using. Shall we get into it?
FABULOUS GREEN BEAUTY/WELLNESS PRODUCTS I WILL REPURCHASE
Talk about one of the best, if not THE BEST of natural mascaras in the industry! I love love Inika for various different reasons, clean ingredients, great formulas, Chanel-esque packaging that rivals any conventional brand, wide range of appealing colours of products, Nars Orgasm natural dupe blush – yes, really! Step forward Peachy Keen blush (post). You can also see full brand overview here. Let’s come back to this mascara, shall we? I have heard criticism of high price point of it, but hear me out, let me explain why I deem it worth every penny. I am not sure if You know that my clean beauty journey started a decade ago & let me tell you, I have come across plenty of disappointing mascaras – most of them flake, sting the eyes like crazy & run at the first sight of rain or tear – this is none of those things. It gives lots of length & volume, it never flakes (unless it is more than 4m old, do not try this at home kids!) and despite having the most sensitive eyes, I never experienced any irritations. Every time I was tempted to try cheaper mascara, I ended up disappointed, so I kind of made the decision to end up my quest to try all the natural mascaras available. I mean, what’s the point if I already know this is my Holy Grail? And did I mention it is natural, vegan and cruelty free?
*this particular one didn’t last as long as all the others I’ve had, but having solid positive experience with it for many years, I will not hold against it & simply get another one. I am not giving up on the products easily, I have used two tubes of Lily Lolo mascara before reviewing it, and gave 100% Pure multiple and multiple chances before giving up on them because of inconsistency in quality, find the picture of my hand holding like 10 mascaras waaayy down on my IG feed if you want to know more.
Jane Iredale Lash Serum
This is amazing product & I think I ought to review it separately! Not only it makes any (crappy) mascara look amazing, conditions lashes, but get this – it stops flaking in the tracks, a problem with so many natural mascaras out there. Most definitely a repurchase.
This is what I use to wash clothes for my family for many years, it was time for a pellets change. Let me know it You want a separate post on how I do my laundry? I would be happy to put together for you.
GREAT NATURAL ITEMS I WON’T GET FOR NOW DUE TO THE SIZE OF MY STASH
Just FIY up front, nothing wrong with these products or formulas, it’s just I’ve been Marie Kondo-ing my stash with an aim to have only one open product in any given category, bar make up.
Absolutely nothing wrong with either mists, it’s simply a classic blogger mistake of (accidentally) acquiring too much facial mists at once. Both of them came from Live In The Light online shop, which is a UK online shop with uber strict selecting criteria and very very natural products – and that’s why I love them a lot. See around 10 posts I’d done for them below.

I won’t be linking the products or reviews, as that takes too much time I don’t have anyways, so if any products take your fancy, please hit that search button in the top right corner of my blog and I am pretty sure some posts will come up. Shall we get into it?
Ufff, just thinking of this makes me tired! Empties are such a chore to post, so I do the best I can to avoid it – in fact I successfully avoided it for the whole winter 🙂 But You guys seem to love it, so here it is. Let’s get started, shall we? Some of these products have reviews/ mentions, so hit up that search button on the right hand corner 🙂
Welcome back! And welcome, if you are new here 💕💕💕
Umm, yeah, this happened 🙂 I used to be on top of my empties posts, every month or a quarter at least. You guys know my style, my posts are usually very long because I try to cover every single base I can think of, from company itself, to ingredients, to user experience, whether I liked it or not and why, plus linking everything, products, reviews; you know the drill. Couple that with other projects I’ve had, reviews, judging for a few clean beauty awards and the constant upkeep with the social media and you would understand why these posts became the pain-in-th-you-know-what to do. However I think it is important for me to do empties posts so you guys could see that the products I am using and the reviewing are the same products, plus you guys want me to keep these posts up – so there you go, this is for you lovelies. Something’s gotta give though, this blog is a passion project of mine, not a paid gig, so I don’t want to spend all of my time away from my family, blogging at all hours of the day. So no more links, instead of elaborate opinions and explanations of why I think something is great (or not), I will group them in categories of “Repurchasing” “Not Repurchasing” and if you have any questions, ask. Most of the products will have either reviews or mentions in some posts or the other, so be sure to hit that search box. Thanks for reading in advance!
