❤︎ Empties :: May 2015 || Cruelty-Free Beauty

Hey GUYS! 

Today I really wanted to share a couple of empties I've had laying around. I really like all of these products but I wouldn't repurchase some of them.

1. Tree Hut: Shea Moisturizing BODY WASH :: Tropical Mango!

I LOVE this guy! It smells amazing and the scent lingers! It also does not dry your skin out! I haven't repurchased it just because I haven't been to Ulta in a while, but I definitely plan to. I highly recommented this line from Tree Hut. I've used the scrubs and love them! (Here are links to the Mango Scrub and Coconut Lime). 

I got this in October's Petit Vout Box and really liked it. I wash my hair every other day and so my hair gets really dry and frizzy on the days I don't wash it. This products definitely gave it moisture and, though it doesn't claim to do so, helped with the frizz, a lot. I want to repurchase it again because I want use it more and see if I see long term results. (I got a sample size). However, if you are looking for a deep moisturizer this is not it. I still needed an oil to make my hair feel really soft and manageable

3. Earth Body | dream Body Oil

I got this guy in a Petit Vour Box, but I guess I didn't share it because I can't find it on my blog. It's an oil meant to "..enhance mental clarity and restore moisture". It's very moisturizing and smells great! I liked using it right before bed. It's on the pricey side, so if I repurchase it will be a splurge! I won't buy it right now, but as a birthday gift, I might just do so. 

I really like the c. Booth Bath and Body Oil as a cheaper and just as good alternative!

LOVED IT!! What can I say. I dedicated an entire post to this guy! TRY IT!
It's a natural and cruelty free deodorant that works! 

I was sent this and I also dedicated an entire blog post to it. I LOVED IT. It agreed with my skin so much. Most lotions work right away but the moisture will fade after a few washes and doesn't leave the skin feeling soft for more than a couple of hours. This didn't do that! LOVE IT!

I got this in a Petit Vour Box. I liked this, but I prefer the Beesential lotion for the body.  However, seeing at it's 100% vegan and natural I used it as a face moisturizer and liked it that way. I won't necessarily repurchase this again, but I will look into 100% Pure's facial moisturizers. 

Lots of Love,

SkinCare Haul || My Skin Was FREAKING OUT! || CRUELTY-FREE ||

Hello Guys! 

Today, I wanted to jump back in here with a SkinCare Haul! I picked up everything on Sorry for my LONG (at least it felt so to me) hiatus! But I'm back now! 

My skin has been freaking out lately. I think it's just a combination of stress and hormones. So I decided to look into natural acne treatments. I found a video by CloudyApples (she's very into natural skincare) and she recommended using Castor Oil along with Extra Virgin Olive Oil to clean deep in the pores. I've heard many good things about oils for skincare in general, but especially about Castor Oil. I planned to just buy the Castor Oil, but of course I ended up with eight other things! 

1. Now Solutions: avocado oil | 100% Pure Moisturizing Oil

I've heard so many good things about avocado oil for acne and aging. I've not used it much so I can't say much yet. 

2. The Palma Christi || Castor Oil 

I only thought of Castor Oil for my skin but after researching it seems to be good for many other things. I've only used it twice and I can already see a difference. I will do a blog post for this guy once I've used it longer. 


I can't tell you how many times I've repurchased this guy. I've used it for three years. It's GREAT! It's my first defense when my skin is freaking out. I also use it regularly once to twice a week). It has tea tree oil and awapuhi. ( I must confess I have no idea what awapuhi is, but it agrees with my face). It's definitely drying so use a good moisturizer. 

4.Freeman|| Pomegranate Revealing Peel-Off Mask & Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask 
ea. $3.99

I LOVE Freemen masks. I've used the charcoal one before and I love it. It's great for a gentle but thorough exfoliation. (I bought two!) I've yet to use the pomegranate mask. It's suppose to be good for purging dirt and controlling excess oil. I'll let you know how I like it. 

5. WinCo || Extra Virgin OLIVE OIL ::
~ $2.96 (can't remember exactly)

Cassie form CloudyApples used Castor oil with extra virgin olive oil in her video, so I wanted to do the same. Castor oil is supposed to be very drying for an oil so use it with a moisturizing oil. (Here are some of my recommendations coconut, avocado, and extra virgin olive.) This isn't the most expensive extra virgin olive oil, but I'm sure it will do the trick. 
(This is the only product I didn't buy from 

6. Desert Essence|| Coconut Soft Curls Hair Cream

While I love my Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash, I haven't really explored much other products from this brand. I have wavy/curly hair and wanted to give this a try. I haven't used it yet! I'll let you know if I like it! 

7. Thayers Natural Remedies|| Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera

I really like Witch Hazel for my skin! It agrees with me and really clears it up. I also needed a toner. Witch Hazel smells TERRIBLE on it's own and so I LOVE the rose scent in this! It feels so nice and  cooling on my skin. 


 I just wanted to share this adorable notebook I bought the other day. I got it at Michael's for $3.00! It's so Spring-y! If you like stationary as much as I do, I'm sure you will appreciate me sharing this random purchase! 

**Everything was purchased with my own money! Not sponsored! 

I hope you liked this post. Sorry for my absence! 

Lots of Love,
