I stepped into my bathroom to take a shower the other day — because, apparently, I shower three times a day now because I’m so freaking sweaty — and discovered that a bunch of products I used all summer long have all gone empty at the same time.
Thing is, I use things items practically every day, so you’d think I would have noticed sooner that my industrial-sized bottle of honey mango shower gel was running low, but nooOOOOooo. As if out of nowhere, it’s empty.
I’m curious — what are some of your recent empties/things you’ve run out of lately? I’m kind of a voyeur who loves hearing about things people have finished to the last drop.
Here are mine…
1. Alba Botanica Very Emollient Bath & Shower Gel in Honey Mango Replenishing Moisture for Extra Dry Skin ($12.99)
When I got this 32-oz. bottle for $12.99 at Target, it was for both me AND El Hub. So it wasn’t just for me! It doesn’t contain parabens or pthalates, and the light mango scent smells divine when I’m lathering up, but it doesn’t linger on the skin, which my husband likes (I guess he doesn’t want to smell like mangoes at work). I always feel squeaky clean after using it.
Now it’s empty.
2. Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion ($30)
An old fave from years ago that I rediscovered earlier this summer. It’s so good that I seriously considered cutting open the bottle with a knife to extract the last drops, but I decided that that was probably a bad idea… I didn’t want to accidentally cut off my pinky.
3. Burt’s Bees Baby Shampoo and Wash ($14.59)
OK, this one isn’t technically one of my empties. It’s one of Connor’s.
It creates LOTS of bubbles, which she loves to play with in the bath, and it doesn’t sting her eyes.
P.S. She loves it when we use it as a shampoo, and I style her hair into a baby mohawk.
P.P.S. Someone needs to invent a baby emoji 👶 with a mohawk.
This is great! There’s a solid cleansing oil on one side and a cleansing cream on the other, and they completely remove all of my makeup and cleanse my skin without making it feel dry.
I slacked off earlier this year and didn’t put it on my chin or around my mouth for like two weeks because I was just straight-up lazy, and I paid for it when Julian the pimple moved in.
I need to get a refill of this ASAP.
OK, I don’t know if I can call this an empty yet because I can’t tell how much is actually left in the bottle, but the bottle feels pretty light… But I keep getting more out of it when I use it in the shower, so who knows? It’s been like this for almost two months.
It’s lasted a lot longer than I thought it would, and I’m still totally and completely in love with it.
