Empties | Vegan & Cruelty-Free

Welcome to another blog post! This one is going to be a MASSIVE empties post that is long overdue, I took these photos in back in May and just kept forgetting to write this.


Hanami Water Based Nail Polish Remover Wipes $13.50


This is my scent set of these nail polish wipes and they work great with the Hanami nail polishes. I find you have to be a bit tougher with different brands polish to remove it but it still works. You receive 40 wipes in a pack and that lasts ages. I usually use one to remove nail polish from one hand. I would repurchase and definitely recommend.

Simple As That Matcha Mask $29.95


This face mask contains only two ingredients (Matcha Green Tea and Organic Silica Powder) and is for all skin types. This mask is super detoxifying and rich with lots of antioxidants. It also helps moisturise and nourish your skin. What I like about this mask is that you mix it with water so you can use as much or as little as you like and you get heaps of uses out of 25gm size. I would definitely repurchase this gorgeous mask as I loved how it felt on my skin and it left my skin feeling super clean.

Goddess Candles Cinnamon Vanilla Clamshell Pack $6.00


Goddess Candles is a small Aussie business run by my beautiful friend Casey. I’ve been using her candles and melts for ages and they always smell super strong. All of her candles and melts are 100% vegan! She has a huge range of scents too!

Aura Cacia Lavender Essential Oil $12.92


This was one of the first essential oils I ever bought ages ago and it made me fall in love with Lavender. Aura Cacia has a HUGE range of essential oils and blends. I would repurchase but I prefer to buy my essential oils from ECO Modern Essentials because they are in Australia and shipping is super fast compared to when I order Aura Cacia from iHerb.

Beauty Blender $30.00


I’ve gone through about 3-4 regular beauty blenders and 3 of their tiny ones. They blend makeup great but I prefer the Real Techniques sponge because it’s cheaper, they clean better and they get into small areas great. From the photo you can see these sponges are quiet stained which irritates me. Overall I wouldn’t repurchase a Beauty Blender.

Lush Oaty Creamy Dreamy Oat Milk Shower Cream 


This oat milk based shower cream was released last year in November and became a favourite of mine super fast. It’s similar to Lush’s Dream Cream body lotion which is a sensitive skin formula. I love this because it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and leaves it feeling soft, smooth and moisturised. I would 100% repurchase but unfortunately you cannot buy it at the moment because Lush is trying to workout a way where the ingredients don’t seperate in our crazy Australian heat so it’s not available at the moment which makes me sad because I NEED another bottle in my life.

Elixir Of Light Amazon Lily & Rain Candle


Elixir of Light use to be this amazing Aussie candle business that made the most amazing and creepy candles and melts and everything I ever ordered from them smelt amazing but they closed down and no longer make them and it makes so sad because they were the best damn candles. I would 100% buy them again if they started selling them again.

Lush 1000 Millihelens Jelly Face Mask $13.50


This is probably my least favourite out of all the jelly face mask because I found it super hard to mix on my hands and apply to my face. It contains witch hazel, lemon oil, orange oil, green tea and apple juice. This masks is great for break outs because it contains witch hazel which is antibacterial and astringent. Once I washed this off my face didn’t feel dry and felt nice, cleansed and brightened.

Goddess Candles Lavender Melt Pack $6.00


Lavender is one of my favourite scents ever so when I saw that their were Lavender melts I had to get them! They smell gorgeous and the melts burn great. I would definitely repurchase these!

Derma E Age-Defyinh Hand Cream $10.83


I really enjoyed this hand cream, it didn’t leave my hands feeling oily/greasy and sunk in really well. It lasted well on the hands too. It contains Aloe Vera Gel and Olive Oil. It’s also not too big so it fits in your bad easily. I would definitely repurchase this.

Derma E Hydrating Day Cream $32.12


I loved the night cream version of this but I wasn’t a huge fan of the day cream. During the day my skin would get oily wearing this and I never get oily skin at all. It didn’t irritate my sensitive skin but I would buy it again because I don’t like how shiny I looked during the day.

Dermaveen Oatmeal Shampoo $11.99


I bought this shampoo from one of Priceline’s 40% off Haircare sale to try out with my dry/flaky scalp. This shampoo is suppose to help itchy or sensitive scalps and I found it did absolutely nothing for my scalp. It didn’t help with the itchiness I get or the flakiness at all. I’m pretty sure it made it worse. I would not recommend this at all.

DNA Elements French Pink Clay Mask $19.95


This face mask only contains French Pink Clay which is the most mild of the clay masks. Its made for those with sensitive and dry skin. I loved this mask because it was one that you mixed yourself and I got heaps of uses out of it. It didn’t irritate my skin and left it felling smooth and refreshed.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray $49.00


Urban Decay is a cruelty free brand with vegan options but they are owned by Loreal which isn’t cruelty free so I no longer choose to support them as a company. I bought this spray ages ago when I didn’t realise they had an evil parent company. Everyone has different feelings regarding parent companies and that is totally fine! This setting sprays works great and helps keep makeup on all day without making my face feel oily.

The Jojoba Company Lemon & Coconut Hand Cream $22.95


This gorgeous hand cream contains cocoa, shea and mango butters, jojoba, macadamia, lemon and coconut oils. It not only smells amazing but it didn’t leave my hands feeling greasy. As soon as I applied it my hands felt immediately hydrated. I would definitely repurchase this.

Daily Naturals Rich Moisture Treatment $24.95


This hair treatment contains shea butter, argan oil, wheat and soy protein. I had no luck with this treatment. It didn’t leave my hair feeling soon or soft and repaired. I tried it on dry hair, damp hair and washing it out and still had no luck. I wouldn’t buy this again at all.

Seed Hand and Nail Cream $14.50


Seed is a natural organic Aussie skincare brand. I received this hand cream in a subscription box ages ago and I finally finished off this hand cream. This hand cream smells beautiful and left my hands and nails hydrated and nourished. The tube it comes in is recyclable which is awesome! I would definitely repurchase this hand cream.

Lush Just To Clarify Jelly Mask $13.50


I really loved this jelly mask because it reminds me of the Smuggler’s Soul facial scrub that comes out at fathers day which contains bamboo stem. It is nice and scrubby without feeling too rough on the face. This mask leaves your skin feeling exfoliated, smooth and brightened. It was relatively easy to apply to the face too.

Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask $35.95


This mask is for all the coffee lovers out there. I hate coffee but I actually like the smell of this mask. This mask wakes your face up and leaves your skin feeling soft and looking glowly. It’s super exfoliating and works great on the body too!

Oh Deer Sugar Lemonade Soda Pop Body Scrub $22.50


This gorgeous body scrub smells like fresh handmade lemonade. Its a sugar based scrub which works well with sensitive skin. It didn’t irritate my skin and left it feeling baby soft. I’ve used a few of the soda pop body scrubs and I have loved all of them!

Inika Organic Liquid Foundation $65.00


I bought a sample pack of Inika products to try out and I received this foundation in porcelain. I lived the foundation and how it sat on my face but this is the palest shade and it was way too dark. They don’t have a huge shade range at all (8 shades) so I think it would be hard for most people to find their foundation match with this brand.

Maison Blanche Helsinki Candle


I ordered and received this candle back in December last year and I picked it up from the post office then went to work and left the package in my car which resulted in this candle melting and going everywhere. I was able to use the candle only a bit and it was nice but not overpowering which I like my candles to be. The brand is quiet expensive for candles and if you burn candles nearly everyday like myself you would go through them way too fast.

Lush American Pie Shower Jelly


This was a kitchen exclusive that Lush came out with a while ago and I really wish I bought more because it would have to be my favourite shower jelly that Lush makes. It smells exactly like the American Cream conditioner that Lush make but this jelly is vegan so I finally got to enjoy the scent. It was a nice creamy jelly that worked great and if it came out again I would buy 100 more.

The Birth Of Venus Jelly Face Mask $13.50


This skin balancing jelly mask contain sea water which helps tone the skin and lavender oil and rose absolute which soothes and balances the skin. I really enjoyed this jelly mask as it was gentle on my skin and was easy to use and apply.

Angels on Bare Skin Fresh Cleanser $17.50


This cleanser is a cleanser I’ve been using on and off for years. All of it’s ingredients are 100% natural and it’s inspired by a mediaeval recipe. It has kaolin to absorb dirt and grease, lavender oil and rose absolute to calm the skin. It has ground almonds too which give the skin a super gentle scrub. This cleanser tones and brightens the skin and I will definitely repurchase this again.

Lush Christingle Body Conditioner


This body conditioner is a Christmas exclusive that Lush has brought out the last two years. It’s super minty and a little bit citrusy but it gives this amazing cooling feeling to the skin which makes this great to use in our super hot Australian summers. A body conditioner is a in shower moisturiser that you apply to wet skin and then rinse off and it leaves your skin feeling really moisturised. I really hope this comes back out this Christmas so I can stock up.

Goddess Candles Cinnamon Vanilla Melts $6.00


This is probably one of my favourite flavours that Goddess Candles do. I love Cinnamon and Vanilla so this is a match made in heaven. I 100% recommend trying out this flavour!

Keeko Botanical Teeth Whitening Pen $29.95


This is a Peroxide Free Teeth Whitening Pen that uses bicarb soda and cranberry to safely whiten your teeth. It also has aloe vera and chamomile which help soothe sensitive teeth and promotes a healthy mouth. This pen was super easy to use and didn’t create a mess. I definitely saw results with this and I will be repurchasing. It’s also safe for veneers and crowns!

Oh Deer Sugar Oh Love Is Love Body Scrub $14.00


The description for this body scrub on the Oh Deer Sugar website is Smells like sunshine, rainbows and pride which I think is the perfect description for this body scrub. It’s a rainbow sugar scrub that smells like my childhood. It’s my favourite soda pop body scrub formula and is all about pride so it’s a match made in heaven for me.
