I’m back to a more stable life and returning to my monthly empty posts. I finished a lot of products over the summer, and between my recent purchases in Asia and my batch of Derma MD products, I have a lot of new things I’m just started working on. Consequently, these monthly summaries of the products I use up may be a bit shorter than they used to be, but there’s still a handful of products to talk about from October!

Some summer empties

Up until the summer, I had been reviewing the products I finished up on a monthly basis, but once I started traveling at the beginning of the summer I had to change my approach a little. It wasn’t practical for me to save up the empty containers and I found that I was too short on time to keep up with the monthly posts, and so instead I just kept a list and made a note when I finished something up. Now that I’ve recently come home, it’s a great time to review some of the products I used up while I was away.

For 2014 I’ve started keeping track of the products I use up each month, and throughout April I finished a mix of skincare, cosmetics, and hair care. We’ve moved and are on the road traveling for a bit, so I no longer have my little marble table to photograph products on – this time the view comes from the floor of my completely empty apartment!

For 2014 I’ve started keeping track of the products I use up each month, and throughout March I finished a mix of skincare, cosmetics, body and hair care products. Keeping track helps me keep focused on using stuff up rather than just hoarding half-used containers, and it gives me the opportunity to say a few words about stuff that might have otherwise passed by without a full review.

New year, new series: monthly empties!

I always enjoy reading about the products other people use up, and I’ve decided to start recording my own finished products. By documenting them monthly, I’ll be able to keep the list from getting too long and it’ll give me a chance to talk about some of the products that might otherwise slip by without a review. Through the month of January I finished up a mix of skincare, bath and body products and want to offer some thoughts on how they worked for me before I dispose of their remains.
