Reflecting on this latest batch of empties is a bit like a greatest hits and misses retrospective of summer. Some have been featured on the blog previously (in which case I have an opportunity to revisit my previous opinions—yay!) and some are new to this post. Let's dive in, shall we? Quick...

Quick notes: Like Quick Study, this empty came from me using the Remedy Bar vial to refill a roll-on I already had. Would I repurchase? Yes. Quick notes: I was skeptical that this roll-on was doing anything for me until I used it during the last cycle, after not having used it for a...

These empties round-ups are quickly becoming one of my favourite recurring beauty features on the blog. Not only do they allow me to revisit products and possibly revise my initial impressions, they're a good way of keeping tabs on the must-haves and the repeats in my roster. Here are the skin...

Yes, this post is 2 days late, but it still counts as a September empties post because I have another October empties round-up slated for later this month! It's funny how products seem to all run out at once. Let's get down to it, shall we? Quick notes: This sample is so shamefully,...

It works well and removes makeup nicely and has a lovely scent, but with all the oil cleansers and micellar waters out there at different price points it's no longer a Holy Grail product. Would I repurchase? Probably not.

Quick notes: This little tube of hand cream was part of a Crabtree & Evelyn sampler gift set I purchased at the end of the holiday season. The formula is everything I want in a hand cream: It's non-greasy and quick-absorbing, full of nourishing and natural ingredients with no controversial...

" If this was one of your Holy Grail products you better stock up now! Quick notes: I get a lot of sunscreen samples but this is one I keep re-purchasing for myself—that should tell you all you need to know about how awesome this sunscreen is. For a chemical sunscreen, it's relatively clean...

However, it wasn't exactly a Holy Grail product—I kept straying from it and using other ultra-moisturizing conditioning treatments that were more affordable and just as effective. Would I repurchase? Probably not. Quick notes: Portable, convenient, affordable. Fast-absorbing. I wasn't a...

Quick notes: This is my Holy Grail nail polish remover and the one I keep buying over and over again. I like the pump-top bottle and the fact that it doesn't smell noxious like other nail polish removers. Plus, the acetone-mixed-with-gentler-ingredients formula is effective and quick at...
