August & September Empties

August & September Empties

I finished up a lot of products in the last two months, which is great. For the rest of the year, and hopefully into 2020 I will focus on finishing up products I already have instead of using 3 or 4 different face washes or […]

June/July Empties

June/July Empties

Okay, so what if August is almost over??? It’s never too late to let you know about all the products I’ve used up in the last few months. You may argue there is actually never a good time to tell you about them. But I […]

April & May Empties

April & May Empties

Another few months have come and gone, and so have a few products. I’m actively trying to finish things before purchasing new ones. It’s easier for me to use up skincare products rather than makeup products. With skincare, I don’t feel the need to have multiples of moisturizers, face washes, etc. Anyway, here’s what I’ve used up lately.

Sephora Collection Cucumber Eye Masks

Do eye masks actually work? I’m not totally sure if they work. I like to use them before a big event. They’re a nice relaxation thing. Would I buy it again? I mean probably, but I’m not rushing out to buy them.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Oil

I haven’t run into a FAB product that I haven’t liked, and this was no exception. I loved this little sample pack. It was a nice, hydrating oil without ever feeling too heavy. Would I buy it again? I would consider purchasing the full-sized version of this.

Drunk Elephant Protini Peptine Moisturizer

I’ve been wanting to try something from Drunk Elephant for a while, but the whole line is pretty pricey. I liked this moisturizer, but it wasn’t life changing. Would I buy it again? I don’t think so.

BB Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer

I don’t blow dry my hair THAT often, but I like to use a protector when I do. It’s a nice product, and I enjoyed using it. It made my hair softer when I used it. Would I buy it again? I don’t think so. I liked it, but I didn’t love it and I’d rather try another product.

First Aid Beauty Coconut Water Cream

I got this in a set for Christmas and I was really excited to try it. I loved this moisturizer. I like a moisturizer that isn’t super heavy and this one is perfect for my skin. Would I buy it again? Yes! It was half price a couple weeks ago on the Sephora website and I regret not picking it up.

Revolution Beauty Conceal and Define Concealer in C5

I have bought this concealer at least 3 or 4 times. It has now become solely my face concealer rather than my under eye concealer. It’s reasonably priced and I think it works well. Would I buy it again? Yep!

Sephora Collection Sleeping Mask

I really like the Sephora Collection skincare items. These masks are at the top of my list. I can get a couple uses out of these and they’re very reasonably priced. Would I buy it again? Yes.

Sephora Collection Cleansing Coconut Water Wipes

I don’t regularly use makeup wipes. I’d rather just use a cleanser to remove makeup. I liked to have this little pack around for the times that I did want to use a makeup wipe. They’re very gentle and I love anything coconut. Would I buy it again? Maybe.

Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior 2-in-1 Moisturizer

This sample was NICE. I loved the way it made my skin feel. I considered getting a full-sized version for about 2 seconds before I saw the price. $122.00 was not happening for me!! Nothing is that nice. Would I buy it again? Uh, no.

Sephora Collection Green Tea Face Mask

I find little difference happening when I use a sheet mask. But, I did find that this one help to calm down a breakout I was having, so I was impressed. Would I buy it again? Yes, I feel like I should always have a few of these on deck.

Radius Vegan Soft Floss

I bought this thinking it was biodegradable, but I don’t think this actually is. I floss daily. Yes, I am one of those people that listens to their parents and their dentist almost always. I liked this floss, but I’d prefer the one that actually is biodegradable. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

Clear Action Deep Cleaning Astringent

An astringent has been a part of my skincare routine since high school. I feel like it’s necessary for me. It helps clean out all the dirt and grime living in my face. I’m not the most brand loyal when it comes to this, so that’s why I bought this store brand one. Would I buy it again? Yep.

March Empties

March Empties

I am currently trying to pan some of my makeup products, but here are some of the things I finished up in the month of March. Joico Blonde Life Brightening Shampoo I got this shampoo as part of a set for my birthday last year […]

January/February Empties

January/February Empties

I didn’t have to many empties pile up over the last few months. heck, one of these wasn’t even empty, it was just v v v expired. Bath & Body Works Foaming Hand Soap in Winter Candy Apple and Twisted Peppermint – The foaming hand […]

December Empties

December Empties

Yes to Carrots Nourishing Shampoo and Pampering Conditioner – I got this for Christmas literally years ago. I had picked it out based on recommendations from friends. I didn’t like this shampoo or conditioner. I felt like it didn’t make my hair any less dry. It was a chore to get through. Would I buy it again? Nope!

First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser – I love this cleanser. I originally got in a gift pack with some other FAB products. It’s an excellent daily cleanser. It’s not too harsh on the skin, but it works well. This was my second tube. Would I buy it again? Yes! I already had the bigger size of this cleanser ready to go, and I got another back up for Christmas. I’m seriously considering the jumbo size next time I buy it.

Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate – I got this little sample as part of my birthday gift from Ulta last year. I thought it was a good morning moisturizer. But I didn’t feel like it did enough at night. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation in 2.0N – This is my go-to foundation. I like the light, yet buildable coverage. I think it makes my skin look really nice and blurs everything out. Also, it’s ridiculously inexpensive. At $6.70, it’s cheaper than most drugstore foundations. It is tough to try and figure out what your shade might be, so if there is a store close to you, go in and swatch test. Would I buy it again? Yes! I got it in a winter and a summer shade.

Alba Botanica Acnedote Face & Body Scrub – I’ve been using this scrub for YEARS. It wasn’t available in Canada, so I would pick up a bottle in the States whenever I’d go. It worked well for me. Sometime last year, my skin completely changed. I now have combo skin, when it used to be exclusively oily. This scrub is now way to harsh for me. Would I buy it again? It makes me sad to say it, because I’ve repurchased it so many times, but no. this was my last bottle.
