Boyfriend's Empties

Empties posts are my favorite to read and for the longest time I’ve tried to convince my boyfriend to gather all his empties for a post of his own. As we’re moving out, he pushed to finish products and we both cleared out a lot and he had enough to make a sufficient post that actually covers everything he uses on the regular. 

  • Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash | T has had this for absolute ages - he got a double pack from Costco a few years (?) ago so it’s been never ending lol. Shortly after he bought this duo, I got him into the Lush body washes so it’s been a mission to use these up but it’s finally done! Hallelujah.

  • Listerine Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouth Wash :: T is also very good about using mouthwash and also buys this in bulk from Costco. We actually finished the Aesop mouth wash and I told T to just put Listerine in it bc aesthetics 😂

  • Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo :: T had a mini of this and really liked it so he just ended up buying a giant one from Ulta during a sale. He had a backup ordered at the most recent sale so we have that in our shower. Occasionally I use it and it’s nice cause the tea tree oil is tingly 😌

  • LUSH The Olive Branch Shower Gel :: This is probably our favorite shower gel and one we buy the largest size of since we both use it. I worked my way through all the body washes I had been gifted so now we’ll probably both use this or try one out from Le Labo !

  • Origins United State Balancing Tonic :: A few years back we were at Macy’s when T was perusing the skincare counters. He was explaining some of his skincare issues and the SA at Origins was so helpful. She gave him a few samples of products to try and this toner worked so well. He’s been using it since and has gone through a few bottles! It helps hydrate dry patches but also helps keep oily areas at bay. This is really good for combo skin!

  • La Roche-Posay Hydreane Riche :: When we were in Paris a few years back, I dragged T through some French Pharmacies (as you do in France). He had forgotten a moisturizer and I had only brought a mini so he ended up just picking one up (with the help of a SA). He ended up loving it so much he bought a couple more bottles before we left so he could keep using it. Every time someone we knew went to Europe, he had someone pick up a few more for him 😂. He can be quite bougie and I’m sure I can convince him to go back to Europe to get a few more bottles.

  • Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser :: Ok this is kind of cheating cause we both use this so it’s more like an “us” empty. T kinda uses whatever cleanser but he actually really likes MJC. Usually when my friends ask me for cleanser suggestions for their bfs/husbands, I always recommend this. And then I point out that T loves this and they’re more comfortable suggesting it to their man haha.

  • Origins Check and Balances Frothy Face Wash :: I honestly feel like T has had this forever. He got a sample when he visited the Origins counter and liked it. I also had a few minis of this from sample kits I got so he always had it to travel with. Personally I’m not a fan cause it felt like it dried my skin out a lot, but it helped balance his skin out - as described.

  • Malin + Goetz Bergamot Body Wash (Mini) :: T got a mini set of many Marlin + Goetz products and he’s been using them all for his traveling needs over the last year. Luckily the products have an expiration date listed on the bottom so he had to use them all up asap. This one smelled nice but he didn’t really comment on liking it so it’s unlikely we’ll be repurchasing this. You can pick up a mini set of their products here!

  • Lancer Nourishing Face Cream (Mini) :: T and I have developed a new obsession with Lancer products in the last year and he’s pretty much phasing out a lot of other products for Lancer ones. We got a few free GWP sets that had this moisturizer and he enjoys using it a lot. The full size price is pretty eye-watering and I think the LRP is more accessible in the US now, so we’ll prob try to find backups of that before we get a backup of this one.

I hope you guys liked this type of post! My boyfriend definitely is my number one supporter and I love when he gets excited about participating in any of my blog post ideas :)
Have you been able to get your S.O. into skincare? What are his/her favorite products?
