January Favorites & Empties

Leave a Comment
Hello everyone! It's time for my montly favorites and empties. This year, I'm keeping a count of all of my empties. It will be really interesting to see how many products I use up in a year. 

Let's start with the favorites! I've been switching up my makeup a lot, so I haven't been loyal to many makeup products. Skincare has really been what I'm loving right now, so that leads me to the first product.

Perricone MD Blue Plasma - This is a daily non-acidic peel, and I love what this has done for my skin. This product was included in my recent skincare post.

Real Techniques Blush Brush - This brush is larger than what I would typically use for blush, but I really like this shape. I really like how this brush comes to a point, so it blends out blush really nicely. You cannot go wrong with Real Techniques brushes!

The Masters Brush Cleaner and Preserver - This is a solid cleanser that is meant for paint brushes but works really well cleaning makeup brushes. I got this at a craft store, and it was very affordable. I can't remember exactly how much it was, but I don't think I paid more than $10. It has lasted quite a while, and I still have a lot. 

Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer - This is in the old packaging for this product, so it has been in my collection for a little while. This concealer is very opaque, and a little goes a long way.

Noir Tease perfume - I got this Victoria's Secret perfume for Christmas, and I wore it all month. It's not too strong, and it smells like vanilla and berries. The bottle is too cute to not be in my favorites!

Moving on to the empties! It seems like I should have more empties than this, but I can think of at least three products that I have only one or two uses left. I will definitely have more to show for February.

Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes - I used up two of the full size packs and one small. This is my favorite of the wipes that I have tried, and I love that I can get them at Costco.

Hask Argan Oil Repairing Conditioner - I received this for review purposes (review here), and really liked it. I appreciate hair care that is environmentally responsible and doesn't test on animals. I really like the ingredients in Hask products. I would buy this.

Patricia Wexler Dual-Action Foaming Cleanser - My mom gave me some Patrician Wexler products to try, but most of them didn't work with my skin. This cleanser was okay, but I don't think I would repurchase anything from Patricia Wexler. I don't think Bath & Body Works carries this brand anymore, so I wouldn't even know where to buy.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer - This was a very moisturizing eye cream. I used it in the evening, and I don't think this made my undereye area any brighter. It was nice, but I won't repurchase.

AzureNaturals Ultimate Retinol Anti Wrinkle Serum - I received this for review purposes. This is a  lightweight night serum. I prefer lightweight products for my skincare, so I really enjoyed this. I would repurchase this after I've put a big enough dent in my stash to purchase another skincare item. You can read my review of this here.

Love & Toast Paper Flower Handcreme - This cream had a really nice, light scent. I enjoyed using it while it lasted, but I really need something stronger. This winter has not been kind to my hands.

That is everything I have for my January favorites and empties. My total empties count is at 8! That's not very impressive so far, but I have some things already on the way out. Please let me know if you have any questions about anything in this post! Leave me a comment. I love hearing from you!
