Empties #26

I finished up 32 products in August & September. Most of the products I have "meh"/indifferent feelings about.

I finished up a lot of staples (like Tom's Mouthwash and Plackers Dental Flossers - great for Invisalign) and have already repurchased them. I do want to mention a few favorites, that I've also already repurchased or will soon.

September Favorites

dhc lip cream

DHC Lip Cream
I finally realized fragranced lip balms were only making my chapped lips worse. My lips respond really well to Lanolin - aka Nipple Cream. While you can get a large bottle for under $10, it just isn't ideal to tote around and apply on-the-go. I'm loving this lip cream - or balm, rather. I really appreciate the lipstick-like packaging and no fragrance. It leaves a nice sheen behind; my chapped lips have improved a lot. I hope this works well in the winter, too!

July & August Favorites

It's been a long time since I missed a monthly favorites post! The first week of August was pretty hectic for me; I never got around to sharing my July Favorites. I hope you don't mind this two-in-one! I've been really into minimal makeup lately. I'm sure it's a mixture of the heat and working from home.

The Wet Brush, Pixi, Hydro Boost

The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care Stick SPF 15
I was looking for a really moisturizing lip balm with SPF to take on my vacation to Florida. This lip balm had glowing reviews. My lips have responded really well to this - probably because it doesn't have any fragrance additives! It doesn't taste or smell great, but I like the moisture it provides.

Empties #25

Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo (Sephora Play!, sample size) • Ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil (Sephora Play!, sample size) 

June Favorites

I discovered a few new-to-me products this month, and I've been really pleased with all of them.

OPI Infinite Shine, Lancome Juicy Shaker

Lancome Juicy Shaker in Piece of Cake
I purchased a few items from Sephora early in the month; this was the only item I ended up keeping. I thought this product was really gimmicky when I first saw it on social media. Not to mention, $22 seemed a bit steep for a glorified Lip Smackers product.
