Empties | Summer 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. If you want to try a good lip balm, check out Windsor Edwards balm. As far as I know it can only be bought through their website. It works like a dream! Definitely my holy grail product. If I had to pick just 1 beauty product to be stranded on a deserted island with, that balm would be it.


  3. Always happy to see a new video! I love the Tree Hut sugar scrubs, bought on your recommendation. I am always looking out for new products, so love to hear reviews. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  4. Hi, Love your accent-Im from Canada and it shows through when you talk about the Lancôme bi-Facial and when you say “nap”!

      1. Also a fellow Canadian viewer!I love your empty videos 🙂

        I highly recommend Quebec city as a stop in Canada…kind of like Europe but ALOT cheaper to fly to 😉

  5. Hi Jen! I’ve been following you for years and always find your posts very helpful and informative. Also, congrats on making your little family bigger with your beautiful addition, CC.

    I have thin hair like you and have a suggestion for you to try if you want. I was told about Redken Cleansing Cream Shampoo by a close friend many years ago and my hair care has never been the same. I just use it once or twice a week with my regular conditioner and the rest of the time use my normal shampoo. I’ve seen a huge difference in my hair not being so greasy if I choose not to wash it a day or two and it helps boost up the volume just enough. It’s given me healthier hair for sure. Hope you try it out! 🙂

    Have a great day!!!
