It's Empties Time

My empties
Empties. 😊 
I haven't done an empties post in forever , but I had a little pile and thought 'why not?'.

I recently did a post on where to recycle your beauty containers, so go look at that. Let's look at what I've used up.
bathorium hinoki cypress magnesium flake bath soak
Bathorium Hinoki Cypress Magnesium Flake Bath Soak 
Ohhh...I love this. This is the best cold day Bath Soak ever. When it's cold, when my muscles hurt, I reach for this. There is nothing else like it and I am so sad I'm out. I am 100% going to go buy another bag as soon as there is a sale (I saw it at The Bay and Whole Foods, but their website always has sales so I have to sort out where I'm going to buy it from).
Nudestix foundation
Nudestix Nudetint
I got this last tear at their pop up sale. Never has a foundation matched my skin so perfectly, which is probably why I used it up so fast.  I usually swipe it where needed after my skin care routine.  I very much like that formula. I wish it was a fatter more all over stick so I don't fly through it so fast.
Trader Joe's Moisturizer
Trader Joe's Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion
I have been trying to use this up for a while, and am glad I finally have. I have whole other bottle of it, so I will be starting it now. It is quite a nice light face lotion, I assume it is a dupe for Olay's Complete Daily Moisturizer.
The Body Shop shea body wash
The Body Shop Shea Shower Cream
I gave this to Mr. Fox to use up. He uses up body washes quickly and this was no exception. The Body Shop always makes great body washes, my personal favourite is Satsuma, which I just ordered more of.
Tarte birthday suit
Tarte Birthday Suit Tartest Lip Paint
I got this as a mini a few years back for my birthday from Sephora. I found it in my drawer completely dried up. I did buy a full size few years back. I do not think Tarte still makes these lipsticks at all.
the inkey list shea oil hair treatment
The Inkey List Shea Oil Nourishing Hair Treatment
I ordered a whole pile of The Inkey List hair items when they first launched. I like the thinness of this oil, it feels nice on the hair and absorbs easily. I do not like how wide the opening of the cap is, it makes the product flow out too fast and you just end up wasting product. I also don't love the scent of it, I realize it is pure shea oil, but it smells horribly synthetic. Also my community doesn't recycle black plastic, so I have to take this to get recycled.
more empties
Bath and Body Works At The Beach Perfume Spray
I got this mini spray a long time ago, I really liked the scent and am kind of surprised I actually used it up. It is a great summer scent and I liked that it was a spray and not a roll-on.

Benefit They're Real Mascara
It was time to toss this one, it was good but I don't think it was as good as everyone was saying it was. I don't think for the cost I would rebuy it.

Estee Lauder Little Black Primer
I have rebought this black waterproof lash primer many times over the years. I really like it as a waterproof mascara, I don't think I every really use it as a prime. I don't think I will be rebuying it though as it is kind of pricy.

Joe Fresh Face Wipes
I found these dried out in a drawer. As Loblaws discontinued the entire Joe Fresh makeup line these were pretty old, I  just didn't know they were there. There is no where to recycle empty wipe containers in Canada from what I can tell.

That is everything I used up recently. I am actually impressed that I used so many things up. I am going to try my best to recycle everything I can. Check out my post on recycling beauty products in Canada, here
