Empties Pt II: Bath & Body

Hi darlings, as promised here is my bath & body empties! I'm sure there were way more than this I just probably forgot and ended up throwing them out. 
Pictured above: 3 different scents of Bath & Body Works shower gels, 2 Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter, 2 scents of LaVanila deodorant, Tree Hut Sugar Scrub, and Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer
Bath & Body Works shower gels: These are my favorite shower gels cause they smell so good and they usually have awesome sales that I typically stock up on. For those of you that have followed me for awhile know my signature scent is Sweet Pea. I absolutely loveeee that scent but I do also enjoy trying new ones too. I really like the Endless Summer scent, especially for vacations! I am in the market to try a different brand of shower gel though so let me know if you have a favorite that you'd always repurchase!
Soap & Glory Righteous Body Butter: I tried this on a whim because I've seen really good reviews on this and I picked it up before going on vacation and let me just say this was a God send! I got really bad sunburn while on vaca and this was the only thing that helped it and actually moisturized my skin. I went through this travel size in like 4 days so I picked up a second one. I haven't picked up a full size yet but would I? Yes!
LaVanila Deodorant: This is a healthy version of deodorant that you can get from Sephora.com. Basically this deodorant doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, like aluminum. I personally love this brand. I did notice it doesn't last as long as I'd like it to but I keep a travel size in my purse for that reason. But I like knowing it's better for me than the other deodorants on the market so I prefer this brand. 
Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub: This specific scent smells like a vacation, literally. Like you smell it and it instantly takes you to an island. I already repurchased one of these but this time I got the one in a mango scent. It exfoliates and makes my skin feeling so smooth and it's inexpensive. Win, win and win! 
Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer: I've probably gone through like 4 of these since I started collecting my empties. I always have one of these hanging off of my purse. I'll always repurchase these cause I love the Bath & Body Works scents.


Stay tuned, next up is my skin care empties! :)

Need Crystals Review

As many of you know, skincare is super important to stay looking youthful and also to have a nice base for makeup application. Exfoliating is an important step in the skincare routine, but how many of you have heard of microdermabrasion? Basically it's a slightly harsher way of exfoliating, or polishing, the skin. It basically rejuvenates the skin by removing the outer layer of your skin, getting rid of dead skin cells. This skin care technique is used to treat acne scars, discoloration, sun spots and stretch marks. I'm not a dermatologist by any means so if you have questions regarding this I would definitely recommend you to ask your dermatologist, but I personally would not use this more than once a week maybe even once every two weeks depending on how sensitive your skin is. You can find these crystals at www.needcrystals.com and an 8 oz details for just $12.99! You only need a dime size amount each time you use it so an 8 oz will definitely last you a long time. The price is well justified for the amount you receive. 

As you can see from the picture above, the Need Crystals are so fine they're a lot smaller than a grain of salt which makes them very gentle on the skin. Products like St. Ive's apricot scrub are actually really bad for your skin because of how harsh and large the exfoliants are. They can literally make tiny tears in your skin. Whereas this product is so fine that it makes it super gentle which is actually my favorite part about these crystals. 
To use this, all you have to do is take a dime size amount and mix it with your normal cleanser and gently make circular motions like you would normally cleanse your face and then rinse with warm water. It's a really simple process. After using the crystals I noticed a difference in my skin texture immediately. My skin was softer and I could tell my dry patches were gone. I haven't used it enough to tell if it helps with acne scars but I'm hoping it does because I would love to get rid of mine!
