March empties


I know people always say this, but this month by went by so fast! I mainly finished products that I was almost done with in February. When I looked over the list of things I used up, I noticed I really liked all of them, which seems to not happen often. Almost everything here was either a repurchase, something that I have repurchased, or that I plan on repurchasing at some point.

Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronze Concentrate (review): This liquid bronzer is a product unlike any other on the natural market, and it's a really good one. I stipple this over liquid and cream foundations, or bare skin, and sometimes set it with a translucent powder. It gives a very natural, buildable bronze glow, and it's not orangey! I really want to repurchase this, but I think I should use up some of my powder bronzers first.

Badger Damascus Rose Face Sunscreen SPF 15 (review): This has been one of my regularly-purchased sunscreens for the past couple years. It's non-whitening on me, and I really love the damascus rose scent. I have figured out on sunny days I usually need a higher SPF (and to reapply -- this gets overlooked a lot). Unfortunately, Badger has discontinued all of their sunscreen lotions to reformulate and release next year, so this one is not available right now.

Nourish Organic Deodorant in Fresh Fig(review): The scent of this product is one of my absolute favorites. I think this deodorant will work really well for those who sweat minimally to moderately, because I know it didn't work out for some of my blogger friends. But combined with an alcohol-based spray like Weleda or EO, it works perfectly for me, even on very active days.

EO Organic Deodorant in Cool/Vetiver(review): I've tried all three of EO's spray deodorants, and this scent is my favorite. I don't recommend using this alone if you sweat much throughout the day, but it's great combined with other deodorants. It boosts the efficacy of stick deodorants like Nourish, and I think it's also helped to prevent irritation (because alcohol is slightly acidic) in baking soda deodorants like Soapwalla.

Christopher Drummond Concealer in Light (review): This concealer wowed me with its opaque coverage and natural, skin-like finish. It's great for covering undereye circles, blemishes, and redness, plus it makes an amazing full coverage foundation when mixed with a tinted moisturizer. I've already repurchased this in Light, and also in the Fair shade to use under my eyes.

Alaffia Scalp Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner (review): I've already repurchased these products for the third time, which is rare for a blogger who likes to try everything. I am hoping that after I am through with these bottles, my scalp will have recovered from the cold weather and I can try some of the other Alaffia scents (coconut and lavender please!).

Sierra Bees Organic Lip Balm in Mint Burst (link): You can get one of these Sierra Bees lip balms with every iHerb order, and they are actually pretty great. The formula is soft and moisturizing, and the tube even carries a USDA Organic seal. Mint is my favorite because it's particularly soothing on dry lips.

  2. Nice empties list!
    I've had my eye on the Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronze Concentrate since last fall but have been saving it for summer - can't wait to get it!

    Also, I've been using the Alaffia Scalp Recovery conditioner and it has helped dramatically with my dry scalp/dandruff. I will be trying the coconut/lavender shampoo next.

      Great to hear about it helping your scalp! I really want to try that one as well.

    2. I just bought the Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronze Concentrate! I luckily found it at Winners for half off! I almost died! I've only mixed it in with foundation for a subtle glow. As soon as it gets warmer I will try to use this on my legs.

      This product is a must have!

    1. It's great for layering with other deodorants, alone it won't be enough if you workout or anything like that. Sometimes I use it alone if I'm not doing much physical activity that day.

  4. I really need to try the CD concealer! I like using tinted moisturizers/ sunscreens but sometimes the coverage isn't enough for my blemishes.

  5. I've been wanting to buy that Dr. Hauschka bronzer FOREVER. My friend Gina has it and I've used a bit of hers and just love it, especially mixed in with my foundation. I may be making a Whole Foods run later .... :)

    1. I love how sheer it is, if I had clearer skin I would just use it alone or mixed with a foundation all the time. Let me know how you like it!

  6. You've reminded me to take out my translucent bronze concentrate! Since my cheeks are still a bit spotty with healing scars and the Hauschka tends to bring them back out (even after foundation/concealing), I don't use it too often, but I do like how natural it looks.

    1. Have you tried stippling it on so it doesn't mess up your foundation and concealer? That's how I apply it, because I have the same issue!
