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 […]

November Empties

November Empties

I’ve been trying to make an effort to use up a lot of my products lately. I am a bit of a hoarder. But I bought them to use them, so here we go. If I’ve managed to finish something it usually means I liked it.

Elf Cosmetics Makeup Mist & Spray – For some reason I don’t like to spend a lot of money on products that people can’t see, like a setting spray. This one from elf is like $4 and I think it does a pretty decent job. I definitely notice a difference in my makeup lasting throughout the day when I don’t use it. Would I buy it again?  Yes. I already had a back up ready to go. I am on my third bottle of this. 

First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay – I got this cleanser in a set from Sephora when it was on sale. This lasted me a while, and I really liked using it. I used it maybe once or twice a week, when I felt like my skin needed a good deep cleanse or when I have a break out. 
Would I buy it again?  Yes, but maybe when there’s a sale or when I have a coupon.

Sephora Coconut Face Mask – I really like Sephora’s skincare line. I find it affordable by Sephora standards and I think the quality is pretty good. I am never really sure how to feel about face masks, like I’m not sure if they do anything truly????????? I like the sleeping masks better than the sheet masks, personally. Would I buy it again?  Maybe in a blackout state.

Sephora Coconut Water Moisturizing Cream – I bought this on a whim from the Sephora sale section one day – which is dangerous, because those are usually discontinued products and they will one day be sold out and never come back. Which is what happened with my now-favourite moisturizer. Would I buy it again? Yes. Luckily I had one as backup, but after that I am on the hunt for a new moisturizer. 

Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer – A friend gave me this little sample version, which I used exclusively for like a solid year. I found a big boy version at Winners for a steal of a price. Anyway, I think this slightly breaks me out now which is not great for me. Would I buy it again? I did buy a bigger version of it, but I don’t think I will ever be able to finish that in my life time. 

The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer –  Clocking in under $5, this is a pretty unbeatable primer for the price. It doesn’t have that weird feeling that silicone primers usually have, and I find it decently moisturizing and it works well with The Ordinary’s serum foundation, which I’m a big fan of. Would I buy it again? Yes, I already had one for backup. 

Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil – I got this sample in a Sephora order. I would use it after washing my hair, prior to using a hair dryer. I thought it was fine, but not worth the money of a full size. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer – I bought this concealer after hearing it was a pretty decent dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape concealer at a much more budget-friendly price. I tend to go through concealer pretty quickly, so I don’t really want to get emotionally attached to a product that is both pretty expensive and not super easy to acquire in the great white north. This was my second tube I believe. I recently bought the Colourpop No Filter concealer, and I am waiting for that to come in, so I am looking forward to seeing how they compare. Would I buy it again? Yes, I already had one for backup. 

Bath & Body Works Fresh Lemonade Foaming Hand Soap – When B&BW has a sale on these soaps, I tend to stock up. I embarassingly have like, 9 in my cupboard right now. My boyfriend only likes foaming hand soaps, so that’s what I buy. This scent was fine, but really bugged me near the end. Maybe because it was joyful and summery when I was in the deep, depressing throes of winter.
