Episode 8: Reviewing Empty Eco/Organic Skincare: What I’ve Used Up & Will It Be Repurchased?

Colloquially referred to as “empties” videos on YouTube, today we’re talking about a panoply of skincare I’ve gone through in recent months. Most of what I discuss comes from eco/organic/luxury/artisanal/independent beauty brands, and you can check out the Skincare Philosophy episode if you’d like to learn about what skin perspective I review from.
