September 2023 Empties

Ngl i’m starting to find my obsession with documenting my trash weird too, don’t worry.. However despite the extra effort it takes to document, I think it’s still an interesting study in analyzing one’s waste. I’m still working on posting my August empties, but strangely that one was like 90% feminine hygiene products. As I imagined, September was more tactical.. I’m analyzing the months now through the commonalities i’m noticing in my empties. This month I did not obsessively keep everything. Gonna keep focusing on beauty products since this is primarily a beauty blog, lmao.


  • Glossier Lip Gloss, WRP. Best lip gloss i’ve used. 


  • Nature’s Bounty D3, WNRP. Random supplement I found that I used up. I think D3 is effective, would just prefer a different brand.
  • Liquid Chlorophyll, WNRP. These are unreliable often, would rather just juice greens to get chlorphyll
  • Garden of Life Doctor Formulated Once Daily Ultra Probiotic, WRP, 7x
  • Milk Thistle Seed Extract, WNRP


  • Ouai Rose Body & Hair Oil, WNRP this was absolute dog shite for markup, absolute foolery for gullible sephoraheads
  • Pantene Sulfate Free Conditioner, WNRP. I can get better conditioners for cheaper.
  • Kerastase Night Repair Serum, WNRP they keep giving me samples
  • Redken Extreme Length Conditioner, WNRP


  • Evian Spring Water Spray, WRP, 3x
  • Living Libations Clarifying Clay Soap, WNRP (I prefer the charcoal soap)
  • Naturium The Glow Getter Multi-Oil Body Wash, WNRP
  • Scinic Enjoy Super Mild Sun Essence SPF50+ PA++++, WRP, 1


  • Waterdrop tablets – WNRP, wasteful, take up too much space, too much effort, too much waste. Just plain water with lemon is 100000x better
  • Bob’s Red Mill Ground Flaxseed, WRP, need to WRP, apparently freshly ground flax is better. 
  • Living Libations Frankincense Fresh Toothpaste, WRP
  • Earth Worm Drain Cleaner, WNRP. Landlords left it so I used it up lol
  • Ikea Candle, WRP if it was on sale
  • Bigelow Constant Comment Black Tea, WNRP
  • Celestial Seasonings Honey Chamomille Tea, WNRP
  • Cotton Swabs, WRP I’m getting them at Costco now in bulk like an adult ig
  • Soy Lecithin – WNRP, getting sunflower now from a different brand

It’ll also be interested in seeing how I hone in on this overtime, my pictures need some work!! I’m also anti-grammar at this point, “proper grammar” is an oppressive device used to dampen creative expression, GOODBYE!!

Previous Month’s of Empties:

Barbie x Lush Collab Collection 2023

Hi y’all, it’s been a lil quiet here lately and I will admit my posts aren’t that engaging rn lmao. I’ve just been getting up some random stuff as I build the site.

Lush just launched a collab with Barbie today, Barbie x Lush, and I’ll admit it’s kind of disappointing. I’m kind of sick of all the pink at this point and I say this as a pink lover. Sometimes, pink doesn’t look good and I feel like this collab reflects that… any sort of collaboration right now, especially with Barbie, feels like a cash grab.

That being said, they have released a new scent with this series i’d be curious to smell in person. You can pre-order the products on their app now, some being region locked.

I have some more planned so stay tuned. Is there anything from the Barbie x Lush collab that you’re interested in?

I have way too much perfume and body care products, soaps, etc, to justify getting something, and I find the pinks used lowkey aborrhent.

Lush Kitchen Box August 2023 Review

Hi again, I’m back with yet another Lush post xD. I mentioned the spoilers a while ago, and now it’s here: my Lush Kitchen Box August 2023! This is my first month ever getting the Lush Kitchen Box since it launched in the U.S. I remember ordering from the Lush Kitchen back when it was a UK exclusive. I am enjoying bathing again as I relaunch myself into shared public spaces.

A lot of people were reporting they received theirs damaged and coming in late, they should arrive around the 5th of each month. How it was stupid of Lush to ship a packaging-less. They make a big deal that the kitchen box be as plastic-free and naked as possible, but often to the detriment of loyal fans who get their orders, all melted into a sticky mess.

I was lucky to get mine in one piece, and it’s honestly gorgeous! It has made my room smell so minty and like a Lush store.

I myself am pretty happy with the selection of products since I know it’s all stuff I can use up.

I think the colors in this box go so well together! All the naked products look good together too. I love minty scents so I loved everything in this box.


What came in the Lush Kitchen Box August 2023?


Lush Melomint Bubble Bar. Don’t really care for bubble bars, but they do help make the bath nice and silky.

Lush Ice Blue Soap

Lush Ice Blue Soap. This was drying like all other Lush soaps I’ve used. It lasted well, though.


World Piece Bath Bomb, so cute <3



  • I love all the blues and greens
  • I’m a fan of minty scents so this box was a hit for me
  • Makes your room/house smell amazing



  • Don’t really care for bubble bars
  • Those without a bathtub won’t be able to use some of these items.
  • Performance on the bath bomb was kind of weak

June 2023 Empties

June 2023 Empties

Yes! Two Months in a row, let’s go~~~
I got a lot of stuff finished last month, also got a PC now so I can work on my site on a heavy-duty machine. Despite that, I am still getting this out late in July!!! I am also simultaneously preparing the July empties so maybe I am a little behind..

June 2023 Hair Empties


Macadamia Healing Oil Spray WNRP – more suitable towards thin hair types, I despise the smell. It’s like an aeresol!

Difeel Rosemary 7 Mint Leave-in Conditioning Spray WNRP – greasy horrible mess

Redken Frizz Dismiss Rebel Tame Leave-in Cream WNRP – decent, works for air dried hair, wouldnt recommend for heat styling

Sunbabe Hair Lightening Mist WRP – does help to lighten my hair, but can make hair very dry and stiff, be careful and take breaks when using. Could keep u from being a canidate for bleaching

L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil WNRP – terrible packaging, subpar oil. Nothing compared to my favorite Kerastase Elixir Ultime




First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Oatmeal Mask WNRP – Not the best texture, worked ok. But didn’t care for the user experience or packaging. 

Beauty of Joseon RElief Sun: Rice + Probiotics SPF 50+ PA++++ WRP – Left something to be desired but overall was a better sunscreen. Makes me flush from the niacinamide and not a huge fan of the smell. Fragrance Free tho

Dieux Insant Angel Lipid Rich Moisturizer x2 WNRP – not moisturizing enough on its own, tacky texture, needs other prodcucts to work well… packaging is annoying af

Kate Blanc Organic Castor Oil WNRP – I want to get a better quality castor oil, one i can trust more than one i found on amazon



Cheap Beauty Blender knock-off WRP my main way of doing makeup is with cheap sponges so I will keep buying these until I get like a Dior foundation brush

L’OrealDouble Extend Mascara WNRP got this for free from a neighbor on Nextdoor which was cool, but not one I would purchase myself


All Beauty Empties:


365 Market Epsom Salt Lavender WRP lets face it a bitch needs her salts so ill probably buy something like this again

Rembrandt Deeply White + Peroxide Toothpaste WNRP the worst-tasting toothpaste with the worst texture ever

Random Ikea Candle WNRP no scent at all, didn’t burn well at all either 

Airborne Orginal Vitamin C Immune Support Supplement WNRP meh 

Cymbiotika Golden Mind WNRP does not have enough of a noticeable difference and i don’t like all the plastic 


Food Items

Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile Herbal Tea WNRP too sweet, too wasteful

Organic India Tulsi Sweet Rose Herbal Tea WRP one of my favorite teas of all time so i will always repurchase, maybe offer for the bulk 

Yogi Echinacea Immune Support Herbal Tea WNRP didn’t really care for it, switching to bulk/loose leaf teas which are low waste

Pumpkin Seeds WRP used these for parfaits, and prefer them fresh and raw, these had been around for a while



Kerastase 8h magic night serum Sample WNRP They always give me this as a free sample so I have no reason to buy it

Lancome Renergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Eye Cream Sample WNRP This wasnt bad actually, very rich. IDC for Lancome that much tho 

Kerastase Blond Absolut Ultra Violet Shampoo Sample WNRP drying 

Kerastase Resistance Ciment Thermique Sample WRP 

It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Sample WNRP cool texture smells like pine sol, cringe name, don’t really care for it. ugly packaging 


Free Promo Items

Kanha Cannabis Infused 2:1 Harmony Gummies (CBG: THC) x2 WNRP too sedating

Cannabis Infused Mint Green tea 10MG THC 5 MG CBD WNRP mild effects, don’t really care for the taste

Quality Over Quantity Island Maui Haze Ice Water Hash & Diamond Infused Pre-roll WNRP slightly too tightly rolled, decent flavor but nothing crazy, nothing compared to a Jeeter but better than your typical pre-roll. 


This post could use some cleaning up and links but I will leave it at that for now and try to tidy it up more later. I’ve got an exciting client project I’ve got to finish.. Dxxxx

Lush Kitchen Box Spoilers: August 2023

I recently got back into Lush since I’m taking my bathing and showering experience more seriously again. That has evolved into me now keeping track of new Lush releases and the Kitchen Box! Here are the spoilers for the upcoming August Kitchen box that will be sent:

Ice Blue Soap

Melomint Bubble Bar

World Piece Bath Bomb

Freeze Shower Gel (medium sized bottle)

Surprise Item: Dirty Body Scrub

Seems like a lot of people were disappointed with how mint-forward this box is. Personally, Lush’s Dirty scent is what first got me really into them, so I’m kinda excited! I think it’s refreshing that they would come out with a minty box during peak hot season. I also think these minty scents will be great for regifting as they are rather androgynous.

Living Libations Rose Renewal Frankincense Firming Fluid Review


  • Smells absolutely amazing
  • Extremelytherapeutic to use
  • helps cells regenerate
  • makes dry skin slough off easier
  • does not disturb skin’s natural microbiome
  • absorbs easily
  • recyclable glass packaging



  • pricey
  • some people might be turned off by the essential oils which have the potential to be photosensitizing
  • Sometimes hard to get out a consistent amount out of bottle

Living Libations Haul

I absolutely messed up and deleted all my blogposts when redesigning the site DD: so now I have to magically pull them out of my subconscious and rewrite them and hopefully the ones I forget about weren’t that great anyways, but I am pretty sad because I lost the first two OG Events around SF lists!!

Anyways, for today’s post I will be sharing a recent Living Libations haul. I been really into making the house smell non stressful because when we first started renting this place the smell of it was definitely kinda off. Now because of a bunch of Living Libations products and other space clearing rituals and what not it’s a lot more homey and grounding!!

Individual reviews coming soon!!
