For almost two years now, I have been tracking my monthly empties. It has been a great way for me to show myself how much I use up every month, in order to justify any new purchases! I’ve been very good the past two years or so about only buying what I need, and not going overboard in the purchasing department. There are so many things on my wishlist, I usually buy something new instead of repurchasing, but there are a few items I really should repurchase because I loved them!
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (Full Review)
The DHC Deep Cleansing Oil was the first cleansing oil I ever used. It removed make up and cleansed the skin like a dream. I was hooked. Since I haven’t tried any other cleansing oils before I want to try some other ones to compare. I’m not sure why though because this one from DHC is very highly rated and a good price.

The Balm Stainiac
The first tube of Stainiac I had was actually from a Birchbox. I thought it was just the same thing as Benetint, but it’s actually better. While the color is the same, the formula and applicator or not. Stainiac is more gel like, and the doe foot applicator make it easier to apply. I love the slight but long lasting tint it gives. Going to keep my eye out for The Balm on Hautelook!

NARS Smudge Proof Eye Shadow Base
At first I thought $25 for a primer seemed like a lot, but this eye primer from NARS lasted FOREVER. In fact, I think there was a lot of product left when I through it out, but the packaging broke and got yucky. Use this and your shadow will last all day. And all night. I usually only have my make up on from right before work till right after I get home, so I don’t necessarily need something this intense, but it is good to have around for humid or long days.

Burt’s Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser (Full Review)
I really can’t believe I didn’t repurchase this already, even if just for the smell. Packed with orange essence, this Burt’s Bees cleanser smells like you’re rubbing your face in an orange! The cleanser is very gentle on the skin and not drying at all. I used this in the morning when I just needed something to refresh the skin. I’ve been loving everything I’ve tried from Burt’s Bees lately.

The Body Shop Coconut Shower Cream
The Body Shop makes the best scented shower products on earth. Hands down. I’ve tried a couple of scents but the Coconut scent was my favorite. It’s a very warm, sugary coconut scent. I could live in it. I think at all times I need one The Body Shop shower gel so I can always have something that smells amazing!
