Back again with another 5 empties (fully finished products)! I have a bunch of empties this month, but, as usual, I am keeping these posts to 5 products to keep them short. As always, I’m super excited to take a good look at what I thought of the products I’ve finished and whether or not I’d buy them again. As always, thank you so much for being here, and it would mean so much to me if you subscribe here or on Instagram @liftbakelove for new posts!

Josie Maran Skin Dope Ultra Nourishing Daily Body Wash – This definitely does what it says – it’s a non-stripping body wash that leaves your skin hydrated. That said, I felt like I ended up using too much of it, and it wasn’t as moisturizing as some other body washes I’ve tried. If you’re looking for something that’s fragrance free though, this is a great option! I’m not planning on repurchasing this, but I’m still loving the Josie Maran Body Butters post shower regardless of which body wash I’m using.

Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator – This continues to be my favorite facial mist of all time. I’ve tried a few others for testing, but I always end up missing this one. It’s so hydrating, it helps my other products sink in better and faster, and it smells amazing too. I’ve used it alone with nothing else if I’m in a pinch and somehow it actually moisturizes my skin enough even with my incredibly dry skin. I have been through so many bottles of this and just bought two more when Ulta was doing 20% off recently. I’m planning on repurchasing this forever unless something really amazing launches that knocks it out of its HG spot in my routine.

Ouai Scalp & Body Scrub – I got this mini as a gift with purchase, and I didn’t expect to get a lot of use out of it. It turns out that it’s the best scalp scrub I’ve ever used (and I’ve tried a lot of products like this). It works really well as a scalp scrub in that it gets out any residue or product build up that I have in my hair. What I really love about it though is that it actually hydrates as it works so I don’t have to worry about irritating my already super dry scalp. It makes my hair feel so much cleaner but without drying anything out, and it also smells amazing! I’ve already purchased the full size and am still enjoying it!

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Face Cream – It’s incredibly moisturizing while still being lightweight and sinking in super quickly. It also smells amazing, and my skin definitely can tell when I skip using this. It’s especially great for the spring and summer because it’s so lightweight and hydrating. I’ve gone through so many jars of this and already have a backup ready to go. That said, I’m currently testing the Farmacy Honey Halo moisturizer which I’m really loving and can see it replacing this at least in the winter. I will report back!

Spongelle Hand Cream – I’m trying to use up my hand creams so have them all over our apartment, and this lands in the middle of the pack in terms of both formula and scent. It’s definitely hydrating and effective and smells nice, but it doesn’t provide as long-lasting nourishment as some of the others I’m using right now. I’m not planning on repurchasing this.

I’d love to know – what have you finished lately? Like I mentioned, I have a ton more empties that I will be posting about, and not all of them are as positive as this group. Let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to see here on LiftBakeLove, and thanks for reading! As always, some links may be affiliate links that support the blog, but all reviews/opinions are completely my own and unsponsored.

  1. For product build up, I have found that double shampooing and/or rinsing with hair vinegar following conditioner has worked wonders.

    I’ve been really struggling to find a good conditioner – I have to use one or else I’ll end up looking like a chia pet, but then a lot of it can build up in my pixie. Those two things have really helped! I’ve yet to find a scalp scrub that I like, thanks for reviewing.


    1. Thanks for reading – and that’s a great tip for product buildup. I really like the dpHUE apple cider vinegar rinse for when it gets *really* bad, but the scrub is great for normal maintenance for me (and it really does smell so good!).

      1. My latest hair care obsession – Tsubaki (extra moist and repair – red and gold bottles) ! I don’t know if you can get the brand where you live.

        I strayed for a little while, trialled some other brands, and came back to Tsubaki shampoo, conditioner and hair water. It was like coming home, and my hair is so smooth, an ant could slide off it.
