Monthly Empties! Health, Beauty, Skincare!

This month went by so fast, I can't believe it's practically June already! I wasn't very successful this month at finishing up a lot of products. I'll have to work a little harder at it next month.

As always, I 'll share mini-reviews, whether I'd repurchase, and links to products whenever possible.


Anbber Makeup Sponge
This is a newer find for me and it's hands down the best beauty sponge that I've ever used! I had planned on doing a post dedicated to it but it kept going out of stock and I didn't want to post about an item that you couldn't get. It comes in a 6 pack for approximately $10 and can be purchased here

Repurchase- Absolutely!

Home Health Goji Berry Eye Cream
Another favourite of mine. Only this one has been a favourite for many years. I've found one other eye cream that gives me the same results, only it's more than double the price, not cruelty-free, and not natural. This product IS cruelty-free, natural, and very effective. It helps to moisturize and reduce the appearance of my hooded eyes! It's approx. $10 and can be purchased here.

Repurchase- Definitely!

Essence Lash Princess Mascara
I had heard a lot of hype over this mascara, and for good reason, it's a fantastic mascara! I find it works best after the first week of opening it. It's so affordable at approx. $5CAD. I get great volume and length, and it doesn't smudge or flake. Essence is also cruelty-free! It can be purchased here.

Repurchase- Already have a backup

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Leave-on Mask
I received this product free for review. It was a good moisturizer and I didn't experience any breakouts or irritation. However, I have come across a new drugstore option that suits my aging, combo but very dehydrated skin much better (Spoiler- It's Cetaphil's new Night Cream!). Approx. $15 and can be purchased here.

Repurchase- No


BHI Calming Homeopathic Tablets
I've talked about this product on my site before. I've been using it for years to help with my insomnia. It's often the ticket to help me nod off or to help me go back to sleep if I wake up too early, and because it's homoeopathic, it doesn't have any contraindications. At about $12, it can be purchased here.

Repurchase- Already have!

Webber Naturals Daytime Stress Formula
This product contains a herb called Rhodiola which I have been taking forever and a day! This is a combo formula so it also contains other herbs. I like the ingredients and its effects are very gentle, I didn't find it sedating at all so it is definitely good for use during the daytime. I think this may be discontinued as I couldn't find it online.

Repurchase- Seems unavailable

Equate Chromium GTF
I was taking this supplement to help with sugar metabolism and to assist with weight loss. Unfortunately, I found that it exacerbated my insomnia. I've given the balance away. Equate is a store brand. Chromium GTF is very affordable and can be purchased online here.

Repurchase- Not unless my insomnia goes away!

Nature's Bounty Sleep Gummies
I purchased these on a whim and I love them! I can only tolerate low doses of melatonin and this product contains 1.5mg of melatonin plus 100mg L-Theanine per gummy. The recommended dosage is 2 gummies but I just take one. I rotate this product with Webber Naturals Super Sleep which also contains melatonin but it also has 5-HTP. Approx. $10 and can be purchased here.

Repurchase- Already have


These may be the most boring empties of the bunch but they are very useful products! 😛

Jason Sea Fresh Strengthening Flouride and SLS Free Toothpaste
I've been avoiding toothpaste that contains fluoride for years. I like this toothpaste and do have a backup but I have to say, my favourite is still Now Foods XyliWhite in Cinnafresh! Approx. $4.99, can be purchased here.

Repurchase- Already have

Adidas Cotton Tech Deodorant in Fitness Fresh
I've been using this product for too many years to count. It was the first deodorant that I was able to find that didn't contain aluminum. It may not be natural, but it works for me and I don't have to worry about the potential dangers of aluminum. This is a Coty product. Prices vary but I can usually pick it up at Shoppers Drug Mart here in Canada for approx. $5. Can be purchased online here.

Repurchase- Already have

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I used up in May, and hopefully, you found some of the info helpful!

Looking forward to a new month which is always an opportunity for a new start!💕
