7 empties that I’ll be buying again

A lot of my blogger friends save their empty products and write posts about what they’ve used up and whether they’d buy them again. I’ve tried to do that and save things but I seem to fail in that aspect. But I do have 7 that I have finished and have either bought again or will be buying again.

First up is Humboldt Soap Company Cremeplexion Facial Moisturizer. This very affordable ($23) moisturizer is like silk on my face. From the first try to the last I enjoyed every minute of using it.

I’ve been out of it for a long time but I have it on a list to rebuy as soon as I’m finished with the two great moisturizers I’m currently using. Cremeplexion is fragrance free and is made with Collagen, Seaweed Extract, and Argan Oil to nourish and balance your skin. Read my full review to read all the virtues of this moisturizer that I can’t get out of my mind.

Crystal Body Deodorant is a hypoallergenic natural protection that is fragrance free and paraben free.

Crystal Invisible Solid Deodorant and Roll-On Deodorant

Crystal is the world’s leading natural mineral salt deodorant. It works to prevent odor while other products attempt to mask it or plug pores with harsh chemicals like aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium. Crystal is a hypoallergenic deodorant that is safe, healthy, and totally effective.

I was first sent this in 2017 and I’ve been using it ever since. I’ve rebought it many times. Of course I like the unscented one and I prefer the roll-on. Other brands make some great natural deodorants but Crystal is my favorite.

Next is Tweezerman slant tweezers. OMG I have gone through so many Tweezerman tweezers. I recently dropped my favorite one on the granite floor and it is never going to pick up any hair again. What did I do but go buy a new one right away! I also have about 4 others but I keep a tweezers in every room.

Elta MD UV Daily Broad Spectrum SPF40 is the latest Sunscreen I bought to replace the first one I used up. I really enjoy Supergoop Sunscreen too but as I realized that the ELTA MD was winding down I went to replace it ASAP and decided to get the Clear Face Sunscreen with SPF46.

Number 5: RapidBrow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum has helped my poor eyebrows tremendously. I’ve used other brow growth products but I always seem to go back to RapidBrow since it’s affordable and works.

RapidBrow® Eyebrow Enhancing Serum

“RapidBrow® Eyebrow Enhancing Serum is specifically created for eyebrows with an exclusive Hexatein® 2 Complex, a unique blend of fortifying proteins, stimulating peptides and nourishing ingredients designed to help condition, enhance and improve the appearance of eyebrows in as little as 60 days.” RapidBrow is also cruelty-free and paraben free. Six Key Ingredients & Brow Enhancing Benefits:

  • Polypeptides and Amino Acids: comprised of beneficial amino acids to help support more voluminous-looking brows
  • Vitamins: Biotin, Panthenol and rich minerals join forces to help fortify the appearance of brows
  • Keratin: a building block of hair which helps boost the protein structure for healthier-looking brows
  • Apple Fruit Cell Extract: a revolutionary anti-aging ingredient from the stem cells of a rare Swiss apple that helps create the appearance of more youthful-looking brows
  • Sweet Almond Extract: a rich emollient which helps to add shine, sheen and softness to brows

Speaking of hair growth – there’s Viviscal Dietary Supplements. I’ve gone through many boxes of Viviscal. Right now I’m switching off with this and another hair vitamin but I have Viviscal on a recurring order. My hair thinned due to illness and Viviscal nourishes thinning hair and promotes existing growth.

Last is MILK Cosmetics High Volume Kush Mascara. I’ve narrowed my favorite mascaras down to three and Kush is absolutely one I’ve bought over and over and am happy to recommend. There was a mini mini in the Sephora birthday gift for 2020 and it wasn’t representative of the half dozen I’ve used up.

This vegan, cruelty-free mascara gives me the lush lashes I crave. My lashes were another casualty in the war of illness but with KUSH (as well as City Beauty Beyond Mascara and Thrive Causematics) my lashes are visible and I’m happy.

I have other favorites but they haven’t been recently used up. These 7 are products that I just don’t want to give up so I hope they are stayin’ alive. — Marcia
