Shopping Confessions: Huge Green Beauty Haul

After being really good with my beauty spending for most of the year, I went a little crazy in November and December and bought a whole bunch of things!  I don't usually do hauls, but one of my blogging goals for 2015 is to film more videos and I thought this was as good an opportunity as any to get started!  Please excuse the um's and overuse of 'really' and 'awesome.'  I tell ya, this video business is a work in progress!

For those of you that aren't interested in videos but still want to see what I bought, I snapped a few photos and will link to as many things as I can below.

  1. This is the motherload of all hauls! I'm not worthy.. I'm not worth... In all seriousness, looks like I need to up my Nourish Organic game. I just recently purchased my 1st body wash from them and I'm enjoying it so far. I hope you like the Acure Castile soap as much as I do. That's my favorite scent of the 3. It's a great base for foaming hand soap so save that dispenser when you finish the Deep Steep hand wash.

    1. It's terrible, I know! But, it was spread out over two months. And mostly on sale. Also totally out of the ordinary for me, so I don't feel too bad. I love Nourish - I don't think you can go wrong with more products from them! (Except maybe avoid the body lotions, they're just so-so if you ask me.) Good idea about the dispenser! I'll definitely have to try making foaming soap after the Deep Steep :)

  2. DAAAAAMN GIRL! You cleaned out the shops! What a great collection (and a nice way to prepare for a no-buy January / green survivor!). I haven't tried anything from The Honest Co., so I'm looking forward to reading your reviews / feedback! xoxo

    1. I totally did. It's so much stuff I literally don't have anywhere to store it - which is when you really know you over-shopped! I tried The Honest Co.'s discovery kit a couple months ago and I liked it. Their Orange-Vanilla scent was a fast favorite :) I'll definitely update once I try these new things!

  3. What a haul! I'm tempted to purchase everything now argh.

    1. It's a lot of stuff, I know! I've been really pleased with everything I've tried so far, so I say shop away :)

  4. Wow, where to begin! This is quite an impressive haul. Whenever my orders arrive and get spread out across my desk, it feels like when I was at a kid after trick-or-treating on Halloween, assessing my loot.

    I'd love to try Balanced Guru (thanks for the brand introduction), the Sibu Beauty Purifying Mask, Nourish, and Deep Steep.

    1. Thanks Megan! You're so right, it does feel a little like Halloween as a kid :)

  5. Nah, that's not too much :) I went a little crazy too, too many sales not to!

    1. Glad I'm not the only one! It was definitely an out of the ordinary amount for me to buy within such a short period. But, at least I know that most of it is stuff I won't have any issue getting through, so it won't just be sitting around or anything :)
