Beauty Empties!

14 comments

It has been way too long since I did an empties post! My empties bag was overflowing with empty containers. I mean, I had so much stuff that getting a picture of everything all was a bit hard to do. Empties are one of my favorite kinds of posts to read, so I will make sure to do them more frequently. 


Skincare
Neutrogena make-up remover cleansing towelettes: I had several of these in my bag of empties. I get a box of these at Costco and have been using them for a couple of years. I use them to take off my makeup before washing my face. I will continue to purchase these.

Sibu sea buckthorn seed oil: I really like this oil. It has made a couple of appearances in my monthly favorites. A little goes a long way, and it is very gentle, healing oil. I already have another one of these. 

Aura Cacia Rosehip Oil with Vitamin E: This is another oil that has made it to my monthly favorites before. It was a very gentle oil that was great to use this winter. I will repurchase this.

L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Protection SPF 20: This was a great day cream during the winter. I have a full review of this HERE. I was sad when this came to an end, and I will purchase this again when winter rolls back around.

Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream: This is a very thick cream that was so nice to use as a night cream when it was so extremely cold. I really liked it, and I would use this again.

Algenist Overnight Restorative Cream: I really loved this deluxe sample of this night cream. It was amazing! I could tell a difference in my skin when I was using this. I have some skincare that I'm testing out right now, but I will definitely purchase the full size of this!


Bath & Body
Bath & Body Works Paris Amour Shower Gel: I really like using shower gels from Bath & Body Works because I can use scents that I wouldn't normally wear with a body spray. This is an nice scent, and I would probably repurchase this during one of their sales.

Avon Naturals Vanilla Moisturizing Shower Gel: This was a nice shower gel. I really like the price point of these, and they go on sale a lot. I had a bunch of these, so I'm going to take a break. They are good, though. 

Soap & Glory Look Better Naked Body Butter: I must admit that I'm not really a body lotion type of person. Unless I feel really dry, I don't bother with body lotions and body butters. That being said, I really liked using this sample. If I'm ever in need of a body butter, I would consider this one. Not really sure if it does indeed make you look better naked.


Hair
L'Oreal Color Vibrancy Nourishing Conditioner: This is yet another product that has made an appearance in a favorites post. I really like this conditioner, and I think it is just as good as a lot of more expensive ones. It is very moisturizing and almost feels like a mask. I will repurchase this.

Argan Dew Replenishing Hair Mask: This sample was sent to me for review consideration, and I didn't like it enough to review it. I don't dislike this mask, but it doesn't do a better job than other hair masks at lower price points. To maintain the integrity of this blog, I just decided not to review. I liked it, but I didn't like it enough to buy a full size at around $30.

Argan Dew Miraculous Argan Oil: This oil is more of a silicone based hair product with natural oils included. My thoughts on this are the same as my thoughts on the previous product. This oil is very similar to the Hask Argan hair oil, and the Hask is more affordable.

Phyto Phytolisse Anti-frizz Finishing Serum: I really liked using this sample. A little goes a long way, and it did a great job at keeping the frizz to a minimum. If I can get through all of the hair products I currently have in my stash, I would consider purchasing this serum.


Makeup
YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation in BD 50 Beige Dore: This color was too dark for me, so I mixed it in with a foundation that's a bit light for me. I don't remember anything about this foundation really standing out. It was a thin consistency, but seemed to have pretty good coverage. I used the entire sample, but I will probably pass on this foundation.

Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox Beauty Balm SPF 25: I really like this bb cream and used it up really quickly! This is a Korean bb cream that just comes in one color. It was a good color match for my pale skin. I have a couple of bb creams that I need to use up, but this one is by far my favorite. I will be repurchasing this.

Benefit They're Real mascara: This is a great mascara! I've used this many times and will probably end up using it again.

Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara: This mascara is $3 at Walgreens, and is one of the best mascaras I have ever used. I highly recommend this mascara, and I will repurchase it.

Revlon Lash Potion mascara: I liked using this mascara, but it did smudge a little by the end of the day. I have a full review with pictures HERE. I probably won't repurchase this one because Revlon just came out with another mascara. I would probably try that one out instead.

Covergirl Flamed Out mascara: I enjoyed using this mascara. I think I like the original Lash Blast the best out of the ones that I have tried, but I might get this again.

Origins Multi-Grain Makeup SPF 14: I used this as a setting powder and really liked it. The fact that it doesn't contain preservatives is very appealing to me. I got this at a Cosmetics Company Store (outlet), and I may get this again if I see it there.

That's all of my empties! I hope you found this post helpful in some way. Feel free to ask if you have questions about any of these products. What have you used up recently?

-xoxo Lauren

    1. I really liked all of the moisturizers, but I will say that the Algenist was my favorite. It was doing something that I could actually see. I found Argan Dew on twitter. Send them a link to your blog and an email address, and they'll probably send you some of their samples to try. Thanks for reading! xoxo Lauren

    1. I need to not wait so long in between empties posts. I collect way too much trash! The Neutrogena wipes are good, and they're the only ones I use since I can get them at Costco. I think you'll like the Jordana mascara, and if you don't, it's only $3!

    1. Thank you, Kelly! The good thing about Jordana is that eveything is so affordable for the quality. I really like the mascara and don't feel bad recommending it because it's so affordable. If someone gets it because of my review and happens to not like it, then it was only $3. Jordana has a great liquid eyeliner and good lipliners too. xoxo Lauren
