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 primers all at the same time. I’m going to try and avoid buying staple products I already have in my collection, and not to open things just to open them.
Here is what I used up in August and September.
I’m a big fan of this concealer. It is extremely affordable and I think it works really well. It provides nice coverage without ever looking or feeling too cakey. Would I buy it again? Yes! I’m already using a new one!
This was probably my 3rd or 4th tube of this concealer, so obviously I liked it. But I think I’m going to stick with the Colourpop concealer from here on out. I just feel the coverage is a bit better and it is slightly cheaper. Would I buy it again? Maybe, but not right now.
This is my favourite high-end mascara. This one was close to being finished, but not completely done. I dropped it and the packaging broke in a way where it couldn’t be closed again. I’ve gone through a couple of deluxe samples of this mascara that I get in gift sets or as point perks. I have another one in my back up bin currently, but I think I need to finish a couple of mascaras before I open it. Would I buy it again? Yes, but not right now.
I received this as a sample product in the mail. I thought it was a nice shampoo and conditioner. It made my hair feel soft and smooth. The scent is nice but a little overwhelming. This kind in particular was rose-scented. Would I buy it again? Probably not.
Sephora Collection Coconut Water Moisturizing Cream
This was my favourite moisturizer. Unfortunately for me, this is discontinued. I loved how light it was. And it was super affordable. Let me know if there’s any dupes for this one! Would I buy it again? I would if I could.
I really love this primer. The full-size is pretty expensive. This is my third little tube of it, I’ve gotten a few in sample sets. I really should buy the larger version. It’s nice and moisturizing, and the scent is nice. Would I buy it again? Yes. Once I get through my other primers! I might commit to the big one!
I got the big tube of this in an Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale for an incredible price after going through a couple of tubes of the small version. This is a perfect daily cleanser. It’s not harsh at all, and it does a good job. Would I buy it again? Yes, I have another tube in my stash – just trying to finish up some other cleansers!
I got this years ago on super sale at a nearby drug store. And it’s fine. It’s a nice body exfoliator, but it’s nothing incredibly special. The melon scent was just a little too much for me! Would I buy it again? No.
I received this cleanser/mask combo in an Influenster box a while back. I only really used it as a cleanser. This mask worked really well for me. If I was having a problem skin day, I would just use this in the shower and my skin was noticeably different the next day. I never found it too harsh either. Would I buy it again? Yes!
This deodorant was sent to me to try out as they sponsored my podcast. (This post is not sponsored though!) I had never tried a natural deodorant before, I’m a sweater so I didn’t think it would work for me. It did work for me! I was pretty impressed with it. I did find near the end of the tube it irritated my underarms. Would I buy it again? Possibly.
I like this primer. It’s super affordable, which is great for me. I find it smooths my skin out nicely. This is the second bottle I’ve gone through. Would I buy it again? Yes.
Neutrogena Essentials Night Moisturizer
This is a nice, thick night time moisturizer. I liked using it, and it lasted a long time. I did sometimes find it a little too heavy. I think it’s more fitting for dry skin. Would I buy it again? Maybe!
I don’t go through a whole lot of dry shampoo, but I like having a smaller size on hand for when I do need it. Batiste is obviously a very popular brand for dry shampoo. And I think it’s fine! Would I buy it again? Probably.
This spray has been my ride-or-die forever. It’s what gives my naturally brunette hair a nice ~blondeish~ appearance. I couldn’t even tell you how many of these bottles of this I’ve gone through. Would I buy it again? Over and over.
