Products I’ve used up lately & my thoughts on each one (#8)

I have a massive collection of empty bottles and containers to review, and if I don’t unload it all today, it just may take over my house.

(You can see my previous product empties here.)

Acure Energizing Body Lotion & Ultra-Hydrating Body Lotion

The mandarin orange scent of the energizing body lotion was a little too strong for me, but the hydrating lotion was really nice and moisturizing (and unscented!).  I love how you can find it a Target!

John Masters Organics Herbal Cider Hair Clarifier & Color Sealer

This really added lots of shine to my hair, and I felt like it did a good job of removing product build-up too.  You can read more of my thoughts on it here.

Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo

I’ve been trying to grow out my hair and read that this shampoo would be helpful.  While my hair was growing in pretty fast while I was using this, I found that it darkened my blonde hair, so I had to quit!  For that reason alone, I am sticking to my Innersense shampoo.

Mad Hippie Cream Cleanser

This has become my very favorite facial cleanser!  I am already on my second bottle and will definitely be purchasing a third.  Read my full thoughts in my Mad Hippie Brand Spotlight.

Innersense Pure Harmony Shampoo

The Innersense shampoo is, hands down, the best green shampoo that I have used to date.  Because it balances my scalp, I even have to wash my hair less frequently.  See my review here.

Aleavia Clear Facial Mist

I’ve gone through a couple of these mists already, and I really do think that they help to keep my skin clear and balanced.  Aleavia products are so beneficial to sensitive skin in general.  If you have not tried them, definitely read my spotlight on the brand to learn more!

Andalou Naturals Argan Stem Cells Hair Spray

I love this stuff!  It is ideal for taming flyaways, really keeps my hair in place without being too stiff, and will continue to be a staple in my hair care routine.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Deep Conditioning Minute Mask

I loved the gardenia scent so much and kept smelling my hair after using the mask.  I also love that it is so inexpensive, and that it makes my hair soft.  However, I would use straight up coconut oil if you want super deep conditioning.

EO Body Lotion in Coconut & Vanilla

This is a lightweight moisturizer with a tropical scent, and I can see myself buying it again to use on my body during the summer months.

Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser

As the name says, this cleanser is moisturizing and ideal for dry skin.  I really liked it and think that it is a good, more accessible alternative to the Mad Hippie cleanser.

Beautycounter Tint Skin

This is a great product!  I found that it gives really decent coverage and wears well throughout the day.  I actually first purchased in hoping that it could replace my CC cream by It Cosmetics- and it wasn’t a bad dupe at all.

Kypris Moonlight Catalyst

As many of you probably know already, I am a big fan of Kypris products and have actually used quite a lot of them.  Moonlight Catalyst is a luxurious nighttime serum that helped to fade some of my red marks. However, I am not currently using (though I do use other Kypris serums still, including one that will be in my March favorites).

Osmia Lip Doctor

I was kind of sad when I finished this up which means that I need to get more of it.  I loved keeping it on my bedside table so that I could apply it before I went to sleep each night.  It always kept my lips very hydrated, and I really like that it was in a stick rather than in a jar.

100% Pure Healthy Foundation

This is a very natural looking foundation with light coverage.  Many say that it is buildable, but I would still say that the heaviest coverage you’ll get from this is light/medium- and I do not mean that as a criticism at all.  I like to wear this foundation when my skin is nice and clear yet I still need a little something to even it out.

Per-Fekt Mascara

I did a pretty in-depth review of this mascara awhile back, so I won’t get too detailed here. Long story short- it is pretty awesome stuff, and I will definitely get it again.

Starwest Rose Water

I spray rose water on my face all throughout the day to freshen up my makeup and to brighten my complexion when I feel as though it is looking a little dull. I truly go through it like…water.

Derma e Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask

Back in the day, I liked a charcoal mask by Origins, so I got this hoping that it would be similar. Well, I actually ended up liking this more because it didn’t dry my skin out the way the other one always did.  When used religiously, this really helped to keep my skin very clear.


Let me know if you have tried anything that I wrote about today and your thoughts on them.

I’m off to the recycling bin now!
