Lots of loves this week. The Mac Prep + Prime was part of the 10 by 10/10 challenge, obviously I was a little off in my estimations. I had a backup for that as well as for the Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon, my daily staple. 💗 the Elemis Peptide 4 Thousand Flower Mask. It would make an honorable stand-in for the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm. I had a few samples of the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and will likely be purchasing it. I love it, but am committed to trying a few foundations before buying.

The PTR is good but my makeup pilled after using it. It’s got that scent I love (above Elemis) but my YTTP Kale Cream is far superior in my mind. The Dark Choco mask has a stringy serum which is just gross. Love the Skyn Glacial Cleanser it’s just too drying for my skin anymore. The iT! primer was ok but some of the products have parabens and because I sometimes forget to check, I’m not even going to bother. I was SO excited to try the Jo Loves Pomelo but the scent seems like something meant for an older man, kind of like Old Spice😆 The DERMAdoctor serum didn’t do anything for me and the scent was also awful. 

 

lol @eshoe idk if I've experienced stringy serum, yuk!

My trash bin was full today!

Loved most of the sheet masks and didn’t dislike any of them. I also finished a big Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Clinique Moisture Surge - it’s my everyday moisturizer and I love it so much. I was sad that I didn’t like the Bareminerals Tinted moisturizer sample - I was looking for a cheaper alternative to my LM base. Oh well! 

Notably, I also finished my first jar of Halo beauty supplements. I know this is the big thing in beauty but I’m not sure if I’m on board. The pills absolutely made my nails grow super fast but they weren’t particularly stronger. I didn’t really notice any changes in my hair or skin 🤷🏻‍♀️ Each morning when I took the pill my stomach would get so upset, too. I don’t think I’ll repurchase but maybe look into other supplements in the future. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@scott1201 I’ve had similar issues with taking supplements! I haven’t personally taken Halo because of the controversy around the Sawgrass Palmetto potentially reducing efficacy of birth control pills. I don’t remember exactly where all the research lies with respect to that, but even a minute risk wasn’t worth it. I find my stomach is okay if I eat right before (like ten mins) or take a supplement with food. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Sheet mask goals 🤩@scott1201 I've been doing good at masking at least 3 x week. 

love buxom, and your cute masks 😍 @scott1201

Re: Empties - 2019

I tried a sample of the CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator and bought it during the Ulta sale. I've been using other moisturizers and can't wait to try it for an extended period next year. Great to hear you love it @scott1201

Re: Empties - 2019

@scott1201 What amazing empties! I love the CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. It is so cooling and hydrating on the skin. Thanks for sharing. 

 

Best,

Rebecca

November and mid December empties. B0C862AA-F84F-4BB0-AF62-A2538199C523.jpegLoves. I have couple new and awesome discoveries. Youth to people cleanser and IT mascara.

 

8A98A089-FD06-4DD5-9F43-DA95FD8576EB.jpegLikes.

 

56111290-FEFA-4801-9A69-CF2ABDD071F4.jpegKinda ok. I had very big hopes for Tiger grass serum, but didn’t see any improvement with my skin.

 

BFE4BB4D-3529-4F0A-88D1-87EA11E5E46B.jpegHate it.

 

 

 

Re: Empties - 2019

@Sansara So many great products in there. I loved those vitabrind masks, it was a barneys bag that they came in?

Re: Empties - 2019

@CC3616 Yes, that’s from Barney’s. I still have C vitamin powder left from this brand, should try it soon.

nice empties!! @Sansara

Re: nice empties!! @Sansara

Thanks!

Re: Empties - 2019

@Sansara I’ve been so curious about the Volition Turmeric mask. It it an exfoliating mask? Does it have a strong/faint scent?

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoeLet`s be honest, I can`t remember the smell, so probably nothing crazy. I used it as body polish, cause it was too grainy for face, I think.

Re: Empties - 2019

That’s all I need to know, @Sansara, thank you!

Re: Empties - 2019

@Sansara I have some samples of the Tula as well. What did you like/dislike about both?

Re: Empties - 2019

@makeitup305 I loves Tula toner and eye cream. Toner was gentle, not drying and worked well for my combi skin. 

Cleanser was total miss. Very heavy franganced and how to say it, very foamy. You need to rinse it forever. Similar with Fresh Soy cleanser and I hate it. 

Empties - 2019

my empties for the week: absolutely hated the spa life orange sheet mask, the Murad I didn't see any results worth repurchasing. my third sample of the amorepacific vintage single extract essence, just notgiving me the wow factor I see other people speak of. lancome definicils it's ok, would not purchase on my own, and the elemis actually made me produce more oil than normal 😳 loved all the other sheet masks, love the tatcha cleansing oil and love how the skII moisturizer made my skin so soft
