Empties is a monthly feature here at Our Holly Days where I share products (mostly beauty with some others mixed in!) that I’ve been totally obsessed with throughout the month. In most cases, I’ve used the product completely, leaving me with empty containers that I lovingly refer to as Empties. Hopefully these inspire you try try something new in your own beauty regimen.
This conditioner is my ultimate favorite ever. Since it’s on the expensive side, I usually only purchase it once a year and try to stretch it out over several months. It’s by LUSH, one of my most beloved cosmetics stores. It smells just…insanely good. It’s got rose water and orange blossom oils in it, but it doesn’t smell overly feminine. My husband also uses it. It conditions my hair better than any of those deep conditioning treatments you can buy at drug stores and doesn’t weigh down my hair either with gunk or leftover oil. Plus it makes my hair smell fresh for two or three days! My hair is ultra dry and this is the only conditioner I’ve ever used that makes it feel soft and moisturized and extra shiny. Love, love, love this product. I have zero negative things to say about it other than it’s price point.
Coconut Citrus Candle (Target Dollar Spot)
I found this candle at my local Target’s Dollar Spot and love the fresh scent. It’s been burning on my desk for several days now and it just seems to uplift my mood and inspire creativity. They had several scents available, but this one was my favorite.
Lately I’ve been dabbling a bit in trying to contour and with just the few times I’ve tried, I’ve had great results with this palette from e.l.f. Cosmetics. Whenever I want to try a new technique or a new method out, e.l.f. is my go to place to shop since their products are affordable and usually work great! I’ve had very few bad experiences. This particular palette is cream and easy to brush on with my makeup brushes, but I’d be interested to try their powder one as well. My face does get oily when I put cream makeup on it. However, this palette has been awesome and really helpful as I experiment with contouring.
I purchased this for a sponsored blog post a couple of months back and I’ve since become completely obsessed with this product. In fact, I gave my mom a bottle because it’s worked so well for me. Lotion is just not my thing. I despise the greasy feeling I get after applying and as a result, I never apply lotion. Which…in the desert….you can only imagine how scaly and rough my legs have become. This wet moisturizer goes on right after the shower, so I slather it all over my body right after I shut off the water and before I get out. I gently pat dry and my skin absorbs in all the moisture while I proceed with my morning routine. And there’s not greasy feeling since you put it on wet skin. I’m almost completely out of the green tea scent and want to try the coconut one next. If you have weird sensory issues with lotions like I do, you must try this product!
