August Empties

Another month passed and we are closer to fall :(

This month, I did pretty good in finishing a lot of products, including some of my staples and a few new ones.

Bath & Body Products:

LaVanila Healthy Deodorant in Vanilla Grapefruit
Glysomed Hand Cream
Off Botanicals lotion
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60
Lush Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly

I am allergic to mosquito bites and throughout the summer months, I have to make sure I apply insect repellent before I go out. Have been using the Off Botanicals lotion for years. Just like a light-weight lotion with pleasant scent. Works great for a few hours but make sure you reapply after a few hours if you stay out all day long.

Have been using the LaVanila Healthy Deodorant for a few years. Unfortunately, this would be my last one as Sephora has discontinued this(in Canada). Maybe they still carry them in stores but for online orders, they are not available anymore. I have switched to other natural alternatives and found them equally good if not better.

Skincare Products:

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Oz Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum
La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 60
Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil

Oz Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum was sent to me for PR review and I am so pleasantly surprised of how well this natural serum works. It is all natural and it works so well for my skin. Will continue to buy this.

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil was a deluxe sample size I got with purchase at Sephora. With all the hype about this product, I could see why it become so popular. You just get a few drops, rub it between your palm and apply to your skin by patting it on gently before you go to sleep. The "magic" would work its way throughout the night while you sleep. You really do see results almost within 1-2 uses. However, it is very pricey. I am still contemplating on whether to purchase the full-sized one. Honestly, Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate works equally well and only a fraction of the price.

Makeup Products:

Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Honey
Liole Auto Eyebrow #1


DW Pineapple Mint Candle
Everyday Luxe Green Tea & Bergamot Candle

I got both of these candles at Winners. So happy with Everyday Luxe Green Tea & Bergamot. I love Bath and Body Works London Calling so much and stocked up on so many last summer. But so sad to see they didn't bring it back this summer. It is a nice mixture of lemon and tea and the aroma is just perfect for summer. This Green Tea & Bergamot is very similar to that scent and I got a couple of these as I love it so much.

What have you managed to finish this month?


  1. How long did the kiehls serum lasted for you? :) mine is almost used up and i might get another bottle soon for back up ^^ i love it so much lol

    1. I have been alternating between a couple of oils at night so hard to tell how long mine lasts. But as I recall, it would last at least a good 3 months. I have tried the Sunday Riley Luna oil and it is 4 times the price and I think they are very similar so I will keep buying this.

  2. What other natural deodorants are you using now? You reminded me I need to do my empties too hehe, been having a lazy blog month :P

  3. I got the EO Organic Natural deodorant spray from Winners and they work better than the LaVanila one, not to mention it is only a fraction of the price.
