Empties | October 2015

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. I have been loving the brand Soap and Glory. I have been using their Righteous Butter, it smells amazing and I have been pairing that with Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel. I also enjoy their hand food lotion, but found that the full size doesn’t smell as good as the travel size!

  2. Hi Jen! I found you on Youtube and I am so excited to discover that you have blog too!! I am pretty much obsessed with your videos and looking forward to exploring your blog!!!

  3. I’m such a fan of Pacifica and Honest Co. I know exactly what you mean about the pump on the oil..you depress and then wonder when the pump is going to catch and it spurts out. I don’t care for the smell of the healing balm either. Their shave oil is very nice, (smells great!) and their Belly Balm is worth a try.
    I’ve been loving 100 Percent Pure cleansing products lately. They feel good, smell good and work. Try the coconut lime body butter. Smells like dessert.
    I wish I could try the face sunscreen you recommended, but there’s too much debate over the safety of titanium dioxide right now, so I’m just avoiding it.

  4. Jen,
    You seem to go through an inordinate amount of empties (you just did a similar video in August). How are you going through products so fast? I am genuinely interested. I keep a notebook of products that I have purchased, tossed, and finished each year. I only have 8 “empties” for the entire YEAR!

    I take a Sharpie and date all my products so I can tell how long it takes to use something (even toothpaste). Anyway, just thought I would ask…

  5. Hi Jen,

    What’s ur fav Tree Hut scrub scent? I see you recommend that in the past ’empties’ so I’m thinking of trying it out.

  6. Hi there Jen! I hope that you’re doing well. I have a couple of questions for you:
    1. I’m going shopping sometime this week, and I was just wondering what sort of great drugstore base coats and top coats that you would recommend?
    2. I would like to start working on my YouTube channel which is a healthy mix between travel/beauty/fashion/lifestyle (which are a few of my passions), but I have no idea what videos to begin with?
    3. I’m very behind with your videos at the moment and I just heard that your SIL, Emily, is pregnant! My sincerest congratulations to her! How far along is she? Is she due around the same time as you? What is her second baby’s gender? Are you aware of how little Gracie has taken the news? When I was her age, according to my mum, I was miserable for months 😉
    4. A subscriber requested me to do the “I Heart Fall Tag”, and I decided to do it in blog form. I watched your old video for some inspiration, and I was wondering if I can still share my answers with you, once I post it?
    Thank you so much for answering my questions! Take care and have a great week!
