Monthly Empties | Makeup, Skincare, Beauty, and Health

*Not sponsored. Post contains affiliate links

Hello, September!

This summer went by super fast! I'm excited about all the great things about the fall time, but not sure I'm ready to say bye to summer yet.. not that I have a choice. 😜

The end of a month means it's time for my August Empties where I'll share my thoughts on each product and if I'd repurchase them or not. Links to products can be found in the product headings wherever possible. 


La Roche-Posay Micellar Water for Reactive Skin
I received this product for testing purposes and I really loved it. It was very gentle and soothing and did a great job at removing makeup, dirt, and debris. It lasted a very long time! The full review linked here.

Repurchase- Yes

NeoStrata Wrinkle Repair Moisturizing CC Cream SPF 30
I did a full review on this product (linked here). I love the ingredients but the coverage was just too sheer for me.

Repurchase- No

Nip & Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Cleansing Pads
I received several products from the Nip + Fab line for review and their products changed my skin for the better so quickly (full review linked here). I want to try even more from this brand!

Repurchase- I would but want to try more from this brand

Miracle 10 Light Serum
I didn't notice any benefits while using this serum. It may have even been causing a few breakouts, so I used it on and off. I haven't had any luck with Miracle 10 products so far. As you can see, I didn't even finish it and I'm calling it a day with this serum.

Repurchase- No

Miracle 10 Night Cream
Again, I didn't notice any benefits from the Miracle 10 products that I've used so far and that includes this night cream. I did finish this night cream but I was surprised and disappointed that I didn't notice anything special from using it.

Repurchase- No


Garden Of Life Primal Defense HSO Probiotic Formula
This is my holy grail probiotic. I have tried others but nothing compares for me. This product keeps all of my IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) symptoms under control. The full review linked here.

Repurchase- YES!

Country Life Olive Leaf Extract
This is my first time trying this product. I couldn't believe all of the reported health benefits of this herb, from heart health to fighting infections, the list is extensive. I have to say while taking this I did feel an overall feeling of wellness.

Repurchase- Yes

Modern Era Naturals Lipo-Capsulated Glutathione GSH
I received this product for trial purposes. I still have to do a full review on the products that I've tried. These products are really high quality and not like your typical supplements. They are formulated in a way that they are immediately absorbed into the body and they don't get broken down by stomach acids like typical supplements. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant and plays an important role in immune function and detoxification. This line is more expensive than your typical supplements but I can 100% say that it's worth it! Vegan, Non-GMO, and gluten-free.

Repurchase- Yes

Modern Era Naturals Lipo-Capsulated Vitamin B12
Again, I received this product for trial purposes. I found that I slept better and had more energy while taking this B12 supplement. This in combination with their Vitamin C helped me get over some severe and prolonged vertigo that I was going through. The liposomal technology used in these products makes them unique and much better absorbed by our bodies. Vegan, Non-GMO, and gluten-free.

Repurchase- Yes


Live Clean Pink Fire Shampoo
This is one of my favorites to take care of my color-treated and bleached hair. It's gentle, moisturizing, and helps me maintain my color.

Repurchase- YES!

Plus White 5 Minute Teeth Whitening System
Sadly, I let this sit in the back of my cabinet too long and when I went to use it again, it had turned to pure liquid instead of a gel. I did use it a few times when I first purchased it but not enough to notice a difference. I will purchase this again and hopefully not forget about it and let it expire! Ps. It's very budget-friendly!

Repurchase- Yes

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara
My favourite mascara of all time! The full review linked here. It gives me huge lashes, doesn't flake or smudge, and is easy to remove! And, who can beat the price tag at $4.99 CAD!?

Repurchase- Heck yeah!

What products are you loving lately?

Have a great Septemeber, everyone! πŸπŸ‚


  1. I really like the Nip+Fab Cleansing Pads, and I'd be keen to try the La Roche-Posay Micellar Water as I love that brand. Just clicked on your Fenty Beauty ad, thanks for the tip in your blog comment, great idea!

    1. Thanks! Nip and Fab and La Roche-Posay and both great. I don't know why I never thought of the ads before. I clicked yours too.

  2. Thanks for the yesses Amy - really helps me decide what to buy next, especially the health products, I'm a total novice when it comes to supplements xxx

    1. Glad you found it helpful. With supplements it is such a personal thing, but I do find reading reviews helpful, too. xo
