I don’t have a lot of empties to share this time but decided to show you my tiny pile anyway because it’s been a while since the last post. I tend to sweat a lot in the summer, so I’ve been taking showers 2 or even 3 times a day lately. That would explain why all of the products in this empties edition are body washes.
1 // Molton Brown Vintage 2016 With Elderflower Bath & Shower Gel* ($33) – I could have sworn I finished this bottle ages ago, but apparently it still had some product left inside. This Limited Edition release is actually one of my favorite lines from Molton Brown, and I always look forward to its release in the winter. The fragrance composition features notes of grapefruit, petitgrain, vetiver, and English elderflower; and the swirl of shimmery particles gives the skin a beautiful glow.
Repurchase? Yes, unless I receive it as a gift first.
2 // The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel ($20) – I normally buy The Body Shop body washes in bulk during their annual Black Friday sale, and this one was part of my most recent haul. I like that TBS body washes come in a wide variety of scents and formulations. I use the creamier ones in the winter, and refreshing gel type ones in the summer. This one was pretty nice and it smelled good, I’d buy it again.
3 // Rituals The Ritual of Dao Foaming Shower Gel* ($15) – I originally discovered Rituals foaming body washes via Glossybox, and it was love at first use. It’s actually kind of fun to watch the foam expand on the skin, and I like that it leaves a lasting scent that stays throughout the day. That is actually the only reason why I wouldn’t buy this specific body wash again – I enjoyed the fragrance, but it’s not something I would want to wear as a perfume.
Repurchase? Maybe, if it’s a different scent.
4 // Nature’s Gate Aloe Vera Body Wash* ($8.99) – Among the four body washes in this post, Nature’s Gate makes my skin feel the softest; it’s almost like a conditioning effect. The formula contains lots of natural ingredients and is considered to be fairly clean by EWG standards. The only con I can think of is that it might be too gentle, so I only used it after working out to quickly rinse off the sweat. This body wash had a hard time dealing with actual dirt and strong BO.
