Shower Empties

My empties bag is overflowing! I thought it would be fun to grab all of the ones that are shower related and save the makeup and other skincare for a separate post. All but one of these are found at Target or your favorite drug store, so they are definitely affordable!

Dove Purely Pampering

I used to buy all Bath and Body Works shower gels back in the day. I am not really sure why, I guess for the scent and because it was fun to shop there? The ingredients of their stuff leaves lots to be desired though, so I would rather just grab something at Target and not have to buy six bottles at once to get a better deal. I have used a few bottles of this Purely Pampering line from Dove and I love the scent!!! It does a decent job of not stripping away too much moisture.

Yes to Tomatoes Charcoal Cleanser

This is more like a scrub to me. I love love love the scent and use it once or twice a week at night after I wash my face. You can find it at Target or the drugstore for $10 or less and is a solid choice. Not all the Yes to products are a win for me, but this one is!

OGX Orchid Oil Conditioner

This is marketed for colored hair. I love the smell and packaging. It is a decent drugstore find that I buy regularly, but interchangeably with other similar options. I like to have one drugstore brand set and one higher end set in my shower that I switch use with.


I have my daily morning holy grail face wash, Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser. I use that ever single day no matter what. At night, after I remove my makeup, I like to use something different. I will use up any free samples or perhaps a drugstore cleanser. I got this one as a gift with purchase and have had it before. It is a decent cleanser, but honestly, there is nothing special about it. I dont even really like the lemony smell that it has. I use it when I get them for free, but I would never seek out to purchase it.

Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Cream

I used Skintimate shave cream for years. I am not really sure why I was ever so loyal to it? It really never did me any favors, that is for sure. Maybe I liked the colorful bottles? Anyways, I picked this up out of desperation to make my shaving experience better. My legs were literally peeling, they were so dry. This is my second or third bottle of the stuff now. I love how smooth it makes my legs feel, and the scent is pleasant and would compliment any body wash/lotion products you plan to use. I have a new go to and will never buy Skintimate again.

So, what shower products are you loving lately? Anything new out there I need to try?

    I LOVE these kinds of posts! You find great OGX products! I definitely need one for colored hair. They smell amazing. Have a terrific Tuesday.

    I’ve always been interested in the Yes to products but have never picked one up. I love OGX and all of their shampoos and conditioners. They always smell so delicious.

    I’m the same way with liking to have a high end and drug store conditioner– it’s one product that I can tell a difference with most of the time. I use Dove for my body wash & shaving cream, so it’s always a repurchase for me too!

    It is funny how everyone loves bath & body but it’s so bad for the skin.,at least some of their products. I do live their aromatherapy line.
    I love Dove body washes. Their so silky

    I hated Purity and had to get rid of OGX orchid before it was done. It made my hair super dull.

    I am running out of body wash and that Dove one sounds great. I am trying to ween myself off high end products for my hair to see if there is a difference.

    I want to do an empties post so badly but it takes me forever to empty something and then I mindlessly throw it away/recycle it. Lol. Maybe I’ll try to remember next time…
    Yes to… products don’t work for me 🙁 I wish they did since they’re c.f. but they all irritate my face/skin/hair. Esp the tomato ones!
    I love the OGX products, though.

    I need to try the Aveeno product. I shave every day and my legs peel like that, too! I just use body wash generally but that’s probably not the best thing. I also like Dove body wash… don’t think I’ve tried that scent!

    I love a good scrub. I forgot about that cleanser that you mentioned before but I really think I need to pull the trigger on it. All of the acne cleansers I have tried always fail me after a few weeks in. Sierra~Beautifully Candid

    Yes, yes, yes! I love finishing off things! It is the best feeling. Even though I tend to hoard the empties until I convince myself to rinse them all out and get them ready to recycle. Ugh. But my conscience won’t let me throw them away. Which is good I suppose, lol! Shampoos and conditioners are the hardest for me. I can’t find anything that I like very much! : / XO – Alexandra

    I solely use Dove body washes, switching between the Go Fresh and Gently Exfoliating ones. I love charcoal cleansers, but so far have only used the Biore brand. I’d try this one too! Skintimate never did anything for mebut I used it for so long! However Steph (notentirelyperfect) mentioned Cremo Shave Cream in Lavender (on Amazon) and OMG. Seriously smells so good, super moisturizing, and a little bit goes such a long way!
