As I move through my ’empty’ project, I feel really accomplished to finish things each month, so sitting down to write an installment of this series is always fun!
This month is mostly good again, I am happy to say!
Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer in Aloe Soothe ($5-8): I received this free from Influenster but I will be purchasing again (in Spring/Summer). I was hesitant about a spray moisturizer, but this aloe scent smelled so so good for the summer and felt cooling on the skin. It leaves the perfect amount of moisture for Spring/Summer but I will be switching to my body creams for Winter. This spray lasted me about a month and a half with daily use all over my body. It also absorbs very quickly
Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover ($9.50): This is the travel size, which I actually didn’t directly pay for since I got it in a GWP, but I love this stuff for its gentleness on my eyes but also being able to fully remove even waterproof liner.
Jack Black Lip Balm in Lemon and Chamomile ($7): I adore this scent! It is so fresh and yet calming at the same time. I love using a bit more for a night treatment. I can’t say enough good things about Jack Black balm.
NYX HD Concealer in Fair/CW 02 ($5): There seems to be a discrepancy since what I used to purchase as Fair in this concealer is now CW 02 so be aware. This matches my super fair skin really well and is also great as a subtle highlight. It is not full coverage. More light to medium but does not emphasize my fine lines. I have repurchased about four times now.
Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream ($5): Smells like fresh lemons and keeps my cuticles in shape like nothing else! Will repurchase.
Dove Advanced Care Cool Essentials Deodorant ($4): Not necessarily a bad product, it just didn’t work for me. I also think 48 hour protection is a ridiculous claim.
Mario Bedescu Oil Free Moisturizer (Full size $28): This is a sample packet I got a few uses out of. It really didn’t give me enough moisture and I wish it would have worked!
Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips ($8): Compared to regular pore strips, these don’t pull out any extra junk and do not justify the price difference. I am trying to move away from using pore strips anyway.
NYX HD Eye Shadow Base ($5): Now…this is a product I really used to love. I liked the cheapness, the doe-foot applicator for on the go, and the nude/sheer color of the product. But this last repurchased…I think NYX changed the formula. It caused my shadows to crease badly and now smells rancid. It may be a fluke but I won’t repurchase.
Do you have any empties or have you hit pan on anything?
