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 […]

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.

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 […]
