June Empties 2015

This is titled “June Empties,” but I took these photos in May … so do with that what you will. Just like in my last empties post, most of these are hair and skin care products. Apparently I haven’t been smothering my face in enough makeup this year. Woopsies.

Anywho, let’s take a gander of the products I’ve used up since March and discuss whether or not I’ll be repurchasing.

Dove Daily Moisture Conditioner – Dove has been my favorite drugstore shampoo/conditioner for a while now. It leaves my hair feeling healthy and shiny smooth. It never weighs down my tresses while still keeping them soft and luxurious. Repurchase? Already did.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash – Aveeno is my go-to brand for body lotion. It seriously rocks my world, and now so does their body wash. It’s super affordable and leaves you feeling oh-so-touchable. Repurchase? Already did.

Meg 21 Moisturizing Toner – I loved that this toner contained Witch Hazel. Something about the smell and the way it feels on my skin is just lovely. Plus, I could feel this toner fighting any spots that would creep up on my skin. I didn’t repurchase yet cause I had another toner to use up, and that makes me sad.  Repurchase? When I run out of my other toner.

Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil – This stuff is my jam. I have been using it since March of 2014. It’s ultra moisturizing and I just love the scent. It’s perfect to apply before bed but also light enough on your skin for morning too. Moral of the story – I use it ALL. THE. TIME.  Repurchase? Already did.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – I mean, what could I say about this that hasn’t already been said? It’s my staple concealer – perfect for any and all events/makeup needs and doesn’t cake in my under-eye lines.  Repurchase? Already did.

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water – This cleansing water is an amazing dupe for Bioderma. I use it every night before washing my face, and it is a boss at removing all my makeup. Yes, even eye makeup. It goes with me everywhere … even to the airport bathroom when I obsessively remove makeup before my flights.  Repurchase? Already did.

March Empties

March Empties 2015

I have actually never done an empties post before, so I figured it was about time. It works out nicely because I recently used up the last of a bunch of different beauty items. You’ll notice that this is mostly hair and skin care products because I run through them much quicker than makeup and perfume.

I’ll give you a quick run down of my thoughts on each product and whether I plan to repurchase or not. And with that, let’s get into my March empties.

March Empties

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser – This is not only an amazing drugstore concealer, but an amazing concealer despite the price. I would gladly pay twice or three times the price for this concealer. It covers dark circles fully and seamlessly. You can’t even tell you’re wearing makeup. It’s one of my two go-to concealers, and I make sure to always have one in my makeup stash. Repurchase? Already did

L’Oreal Butterfly Mascara – This is bay far my new favorite mascara. I like it more than most of my designer mascaras right now and would gladly pay department store prices for this amazing drugstore find. It lengthens and defines my lashes and scores me loads of compliments whenever I wear it. Repurchase? Already did

Skin Authority Resurfacing Accelerator – I don’t go to sleep without using this amazing gel. I was beyond devastated when my boyfriend said he had used the last pump because I hadn’t planned in advance and had to go a few days without before my new bottle arrived. It turns over my skin cells, keeping my face bright and smooth. Repurchase? Already did

Rituals Hammam Hot Scrub – This is the most amazing store-bought scrub I’ve ever used. The only scrub that comes close to rivaling it is my homemade sugar scrub. It was a lifesaver this Winter when the harsh weather took a tool on my poor skin. Repurchase? Eventually once I use up my other scrubs.

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap – This is the only face cleanser I use, and I have been for years now. It does the job without being too harsh on my skin … all while being super affordable. I don’t feel the need to even try out other cleansers for the time being. Repurchase? Already did

Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo – This dry shampoo is MY JAM. I use it almost every day, regardless of if I just washed my hair or if I haven’t washed it in days. I refuse to use anything else because this works so well for me and is less than $10. Repurchase? Already did

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo –  I am neutral on this shampoo. It does a fine enough job, but I’m not dying to replace it. I’m weirdly un-loyal to any specific shampoo and conditioners, so I’ll just check out which brand is on sale next time I go to CVS. Repurchase? Maybe

Herbal Essences Naked Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner – Same reaction as to the Hello Hydration Shampoo. Repurchase? Maybe

I don’t think I’ll run through products quickly enough to do a monthly empties post, but I’ll save all my bottles and do another one when I’ve got a decent amount of products to talk about.
