April + May Empties

As you might have noticed, I missed April's empties post. Things just got busy. And of course since I missed my monthly post, the empties piled up, and this month has turned into a mega-post, chocked to the brim with products I've used up.

Sierra Bees Lip Balms

You know you order from iHerb too much when you own every single lip balm from Sierra Bees. Sierra Bees is one of iHerb's in-house brands, and for a long time, you could always get one of their lip balms for free with your order.  Now days a lip balm costs $0.50 for your first one of each variety, and if you want more than one with your order, they are a very affordable $0.85. I managed to accumulate all of them overtime with my various orders.

Zuzu Luxe Mosaic Illuminator

When a natural makeup company comes out with a new release that looks more like a mainstream product, us green beauty enthusiasts get excited. When I saw Zuzu Luxe's new Mosaic Illuminator* ($28.50), I was so enthused to see such a pretty pressed face powder from one of my favorite makeup companies. It kind of reminds me of Guerlain's metorite bronzers, but with much better ingredients.

Lina Hanson Global Baby Serum

Though I am well into the second decade of my life, I still love baby products. If it's good enough for a baby's delicate skin, then it's great for mine! So when Lina Hanson, creator of the dreamy Global Body Serum, came out with a baby product, I had to see what was up. The Global Baby Serum($35 for 2 oz) is an intensely nourishing oil blend formulated with the most sensitive skin in mind. Think baby moisturizer taken to the next level.

Pampering products from Moor Spa

Clay masks are a staple of my skincare routine, and I've yet to find a variety I don't like. So I was excited when I had the opportunity to try a couple products from Moor Spa, a brand built entirely around Moor clay. Moor is a unique type of nutrient-dense peat, filled with minerals and plants that have decomposed over thousands of years in anaerobic (read: oxygen-free) conditions. I tried the ingredient in two forms: the Facial Mask* and 4-in-1 Bar*.

Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver Soap

After a long absence, my Current Suds series is back. In these posts, I share the simple joy of bar soaps with simple reviews. Nubian Heritage pops up frequently in these posts because I love the soft, non-drying texture of their products, and the strong, unique scents. How does the Indian Hemp and Haitian Vetiver Bar ($3.47 for 5 oz) stack up?
