The Empties: What I Use The Shit Out Of


How have I not done a post on empties??? This is something I feel like I need to do every single month. You guys know that I try so many products, like soooo many- I’m like a beauty guinea pig. But what about the products I run out of on the regular? We need to talk about it because it’s ground-breaking. I rarely run out of products. These are 3 products that I use all the time, that I keep going back to.

I filmed this on my phone. Just you & me in my bathroom.

TA-DA. Let’s get into it.

Elemis Cleansing Balm

Do I even need to explain again? YES. I do. Because this is my favorite way to cleanse. You guys know how I feel about makeup wipes, & if you don’t…well, I just feel like they pull the face down & who needs that? What you do with this magical cleansing balm is rub it all over your face & it just melts your makeup off. It smells like a spa, is so gentle on the skin & actually works. I love how this balm makes my skin feel. It doesn’t feel stripped after I use it. Plus, it has collagen and makes my skin feel plump.

Organic Flowers Toner

This is just so nice after you wash your face. It’s kinda like an aftershave. It always reminds of Smee & Captain Hook in Peter Pan… you know when Smee shaves Captain Hook then pats that stuff on his face. Well that’s just what you do with this. Put a few drops in your hands, pat, pat, pat then pat it on to your face. This Korean toner is fresh, pretty & tightens the skin just right.

♡ Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Spray Perfume

THIS IS THE BEST AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND UNTIL YOU TRY. Blood orange is one of my favorite scents in the world. I just love blood orange candles so it shouldn’t shock you that I’m very much about a scent. This scent is light & effortless but also has a presence. It’s not some limp scent- it holds its own but it’s chic & light. Make sense?

Anyway, I wear this to workout, run errands, work, & even out for dinner. This scent is just one of my faves- I’ve worn it for years ( BIG PLUS: the boys like it- Michael always asks me why I smell like sour gummies ). This is my go-to vacation/travel scent. The bottle is tiny & perfect for the girl on the go.
