February Empties

By Everydaylegalese @ambernk
Hi everyone!I recently posted my February empties on Instagram but I thought I would share more about each product here. I love watching/reading empties posts. What products have you used up and loved (or hated!) recently?
For reference, I have dry and sensitive skin and my skin is very reactive - I get very red if I touch my skin or after washing. I have thick, very long hair that has not been colored and I rarely use hot tools (including hair dryers)
 * Tula 24-7 Moisture Hydrating Day & Night Cream - I really love this moisturizer. I know that a lot of influencers promote Tula and that leaves some people feeling "iffy" about them and their products, but I absolutely stand by the moisturizer and the cleanser. This left my skin feeling so soft and seemed to calm down my redness. I also loved that it wasn’t too heavy to use during the day.
 * Hempz Vanilla Plum Body Moisturizer - I found this body lotion to be very light and non sticky but still hydrating. This scent is difficult to find (I think it may be discontinued?) but it will pop up from time to time at TJMaxx. I will say that if you are experiencing severe dry skin (or cracked skin) that this body lotion may not help because it isn't thick.
 * Batiste Dry Shampoo - Batiste is the only dry shampoo I’ll use. I love all the scents and it’s inexpensive and it’s the only dry shampoo I’ve found that actually absorbs into my hair. I have tried all the other popular dry shampoos and I either hated the way they felt, smelled, or they left a gray tint in my hair. Batiste is my ride or die dry shampoo.
 * Philosophy Fresh Cream Warm Cashmere Perfume - I love this scent so much. It’s warm but isn’t overpowering. My mom adores this scent too so I think its a good universal scent.
 * Tracie Martyn Absolute Purity Toner - I wanted to hate this toner because it is pricey but my skin loves it. I did see a difference in my skin and pores - my skin has a glow to it after I use this. Tracie Martyn skincare has great ingredients too. Fair warning - I used this product up pretty quickly (I used it only at night and I think it took about a month to go through) but it is so worth it. I also highly recommend their Complexion Savior!
 * Trader Joes Shea Butter and Coconut Oil Hair Mask - I used this as a conditioner for the most part. It is amazing and a great price point. It smells like the beach and left my hair feeling soft and moisturized but didn’t weigh my hair down.
 * Iles Formula Haute Performance Shampoo and Conditioner - I received a sample of this from a BeautyHabit order and fell in love. The scent is amazing and stays in my hair but the formula is great too. It is pricey but it’s worth it. I’ll be repurchasing this because I adore the scent and the product worked great.
