Well, it’s that time again. My little bag under the sink was getting a little full after the past two months of storing my emptied product containers, meaning it’s time to share what I’ve recently finished up. I don’t have any makeup empties this month which isn’t surprising to me as it takes me forever to finish makeup products, but there are a fair amount of skincare & body care empties.
On a side note, I finally found a way to make my posts appear in the wordpress reader as self hosted. When I originally started my blog I had an alwayscleia.wordpress.com domain, so I’ve been reblogging my new posts on that account so that new readers can find them. If you’re already following me on alwayscleia.com you don’t need to refollow on the wordpress one or else you’ll see double the posts in your followed sites.
Body Care & Skincare
The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter I love The Body Shop’s body butters. My favourite scent is Satsuma and I would probably purchase that scent next instead of the strawberry. This cream is so nourishing, I always leave it by my bedside so I remember to use it before bed.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser My HG cleanser, why does it have to be so expensive!? I typically buy this in between using other cleansers because I can’t afford to buy this cleanser every time I run out.
Tarte Maracuja Oil I just can’t get into face oils. Once in a while I’ll use them overnight on my face and I’m always surprised as how nice my skin looks the next morning, but I just can’t stand how greasy I feel when I do. I took a suggestion from Tati and started adding a few drops to my bath for extra hydrated skin. I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing, this oil is expensive!
Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume Sample I’m torn about whether or not to purchase this full size. I love the scent so much, but it doesn’t last on me at all! After an hour or two I couldn’t even tell I was wearing perfume. Maybe I’ll just pick up a rollerball.
Dove Dry Spray Deodorant I love dry spray deodorant, I don’t know why but it lasts so much longer on me than stick deodorants. Maybe because it doesn’t apply creamy/wet like a stick?
Nivea Gentle Eye Makeup Remover I very strongly disliked this makeup remover. Even when I’m not wearing waterproof makeup I found I needed to tug a lot on my skin with the cotton pads to get all my makeup off. I’ve since switched to Lancome Bi-Facil and I love it.
Garnier Nutrisse Rich Nourishing Conditioner Cream This conditioner came with a hair dye kit that I used when I redyed my hair purple a few months ago. It made my hair super soft but I don’t know that it really locked in the colour any more than regular conditioner.
TresEmme Hair Spray This hair spray had pretty good hold but it wasn’t anything particularly special. I may or may not repurchase, I don’t really care too much when it comes to hair spray.
Ouai Treatment Masque Now this is product that warrants a repurchase. I loved the way this Ouai treatment made my hair feel after 20 minutes of soaking in the bath. It’s like a very deep conditioner. I love using it after I get my hair dyed at a salon, it softens all of that dry frizziness that takes over my hair after getting colour treated.
Sheet Masks & Foils
Manefit Mugwort Atringent + Pore Care Mask Honestly this mask didn’t stand out to me very much. Sheet masks never do, I rarely see an immediate effect from using sheet masks so I haven’t been buying them as much as I used to. This mask smelled really nice but I don’t think I would repurchase.
NuFace Prep-N-Glow Exfoliating Wipe I liked these cleansing/exfoliating/hydrating wipes but I think they’re way too expensive to warrant a repurchase. I got a sample wipe from a Sephora order.
What’s in your product empties this month?
