Empties | February 2016

It’s empties time!  Today I am sharing about products I’ve used up recently.  I truly enjoy most of these products but they might not necessarily make it into my monthly favorites.  I also share my thoughts on products I feel lukewarm about and others I downright can’t stand.

  1. Thank you for sharing all those empties! You’ve almost got me trying the Juice cleanser…
    Also love Burt’s Bees wipes and I have very sensitive skin. My favorite empties- Kenra moisturizing shampoo and Volumizing conditioner. As well as, Benefit’s ‘They’re Real’ mascara…have you ever tried this one? It looks so natural -no clumps and perfect lengthening!

  2. I love simple micellar cleansing water and currently using soap and glory facial wash and moisture lotion and cleansing milk

  3. Jen,
    I love your empties! Gives me new ideas of what to try. You turned me onto the Burt’s Bees wipes and I LOVE them. Thanks.

  4. I adore the Burts Bees lemon cuticle cream. And I have gone through some Pantene shampoo myself! (Aqua Light its terrific). My favorite micellar water, bioderma Sebium H2O is already repurchased.
    And I was looking for a good Brown mascara so thanks for that rec. 🙂

  5. Hey Jen,
    When you get time, can you do a postpartum workout routine? And also would you mind sharing your stretching routine?

  6. I always look forward to your videos. They give me so many great ideas. I just tried the Tree Hut scrubs that you rave about and you are right, they are excellent. TFS!

  7. I haven’t watched your video yet – that is how i actually “know” you is through the videos – but this is a nice preview. That Philosophy body wash sounds yummy and I love the tree hut sugar scrubs.

  8. Jen,
    I’ve been watching you for years and never comment! I should more often ☺️ I simply love your take on life and how you share your experiences with the world. I’m so happy you are still posting content even though you are a VERY busy nursing mommy. Keep up the excellent work and know that you have a huge fan in Maine cheering you on with life and new mommy hood!
