May has been a long month for me. Summer is just around the corner and soon the kids will be home. I’m interested to see how my schedule will work once they are out of school, but I’m fairly excited to spend some quality time doing some new adventures with them this summer.

Because of the busyness that May dumped in my lap, I didn’t have many opportunities to try new products. However, when I looked in my ’empties’ basket, I realized that I used up a few really great products. Some of them are samples, but I loved them enough to barrel through them in May.

Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub

I bought this originally for my trip to Israel, because I wanted to pack in a carry-on and was limited with my liquids. It quickly became my absolute favourite for removing my makeup. It evicts every particle of dirt or makeup from my pores and my face feels so fresh after cleansing. The odd time it leaves me a bit dry, so if you have dry skin, you might not want this as a daily cleanser.

Skin care has been a big priority for me this year and Tatcha does not disappoint. Yes, I’ve talked about this before, but it is an amazing moisturizer. I was quite sad when I ran out. That being said, I think I would like to try some more moisturizers before deciding if I would repurchase this again. Leave me some suggestions in the comments, I’d love to know what you’re using.

This probably doesn’t come as a surprise for you since I’ve already talked about it in other posts. I absolutely love this primer. It just makes you glow beyond complexion. I decided not to buy it for summer because I thought it might be too heavy in the heat, but I really miss it and so I’m sure I will break down and buy a full bottle of it soon.

This was a product I received in my FabFitFun subscription box last year. At first, I wasn’t sure about it. I had never heard of the brand and the first time I used it, I wasn’t sure it was anything special. Then, I had an issue where my hair was so dry and damaged that I was sure I was going to have to chop it off and start fresh. I remembered about this and dug it out of hiding. I started using it and all I can say is WOW. Not only did it help me brush through my long locks after a shower without any breakage, it also began to restore my damaged ends. I usually don’t love leave in conditioners, but this one never leaves my hair feeling greasy or heavy. I can spritz this on my hair after a shower, brush it and let it air dry with minimal frizz. I was a bit worried about going through this because I was afraid I was falling in love with an expensive product, but let me tell you – WORTH EVERY PENNY! I absolutely will be repurchasing this for summer!

That brings me to the end of my May Empties. I’d love to know some of your favourite products to try.
