Re: @eshoe I was curious about the kilian perfume... doesn't...

I don’t mind cedarwood on it’s own @sonnydee, but this blend was just no bueno for me:/

Re: Empties - 2019

when I was picking products for my project pan for 2019, I realized there were a ton of products I didn’t want to include because they’re things I knew I would finish and it wouldn’t be much of a challenge. So I’ll be trying to do an update here as well to include things that are outside of my pan! I’m not going to include sheet masks or foils because I already know I’m going to forget to keep those for a photo.F230D6DD-2AB3-453C-8943-B3D9997544E5.jpeg

LOVE - the mini Tommy Hilfiger 2 is a really nostalgic smell to me so it will forever be a love for that reason alone (I think I bought my first bottle in high school). I hate dabbers and have since discovered scents I lIke better, so I’m happy to have this finished. Not pictured - The Creme Shop charcoal makeup remover wipes. Love these, I have repurchased. Takes makeup off without making my skin feel stripped and dry, and I can Usually take a whole face off with both sides of one wipe.

MEH - benefit roller lash. I know everyone loves this but I prefer my BTS and the Milk Kush. I had a bunch of minis of the roller lash and this is officially my last one. Clinique acne solutions cleansing gel - made my skin feel clean. I don’t struggle with too much acne but it did help to keep some of my smaller whiteheads at bay. It did the job, but I feel like are so many other washes with 2% salicylic acid that it doesn’t make it that special.

DISLIKES - L’Oréal power moisture hair mask and Verb Sea Texture cream. For both I found that they smelled nice, but I saw no difference between using them and not.

@cianni great job! getting through the hair mask!!

Re: @cianni great job! getting through the hair mask!!

@lmaster Thank you! I swear towards the end it was like... must... finish.. so close... even though no results..... 😂😂 I’m happy to see that one go 👋🏼👋🏼

Re: @cianni great job! getting through the hair mask!!

Yeah I've tried since like that too @cianni 😂😂

Re: Empties - 2019

Kudos to you for your restructuring @cianni😊

Re: Empties - 2019

IMG_3494.jpgEmpties for January (so far).

Although the mask left my face feeling soft, I didn't care for the smell of the Hyaluronic Acid mask (had sort of a clean old man smell) which unfortunately lingered after using it. The Jeju Natural Aloe masks are nice, although I usually have to widen the eye area with some scissors, and have a lot of left over serum. All of the Tatcha foils are good, although I do feel like the eye cream has a tendency to encourage milia (for me at least). The Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer from fresh is actually quite nice and I would probably consider buying it again although it has two drawbacks for me - the first being that the smell when you initially apply it is very strong (reminds me of cucumbers), and the second is the fact that they do (last I checked) sell in China... so I'm not clear on the whole animal testing issue for this product. 

 

 

great masks @sockmagnet

RE: Empties - 2019

LOVED the Kevin Murphy Un.Tangled leave in conditioner. Unfortunately, my DH has a problem with the smell, which might be described as a clovey scent under a bunch of fruity scents. LOVED the Beauty Blender Cleanser and will always repurchase both the little soaps and the liquid. LIKED the Fresh Grapefruit shower gel but there are other scents I like better, like the Sugar Lychee. LIKE the Almay oil free eye makeup remover pads. In fact, these were my favorite for years, but right now I’m on a quest for a cruelty-free HG eye makeup remover. I still have lots of backups, if you see me repost more empties.

good to know about the Kevin Murphy @christyrc

Re: Empties - 2019

End of the year, start of the new... Empties ready for the trash!

 

The favorites:IMG_20190108_142747.jpgAll loves that have been or will be purchased again.

 

 

The meh gang:IMG_20190108_142432.jpgAll of these were ok, just not any "wow" factors

 

 

The dislikes:IMG_20190108_142151.jpgThese did not work for me at all.

 

 

 

Re: Empties - 2019

@quspork What awesome empties! I am loving all the skincare. 2019 for me is going to be more about skin!

 

Best,

Rebecca 

Re: Empties - 2019

@quspork You got through a ton of stuff! And it always feels good to get rid of multiple FS at once.

@quspork lots of nice products I use too 😉

Re: Empties - 2019

Wow! Look at you go! A lot of your favourites are favourites of mine, too. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Isn't that Bumble and Bumble conditioner just the best!  I also love the Lancome bi-facil make up remover.  It's a very underrated product that I keep going back to over the years.  Great set of empties!

Re: Empties - 2019

Yes- love the B&B Hairdresser's Oil line, @missjeanie! It's so good at making hair soft and manageable! 

Re: Empties - 2019

Lots of great empties @quspork! I see some of favorites within your favorites pile. Love seeing everyones empties Smiley Tongue

Re: Empties - 2019

Okay, lots of recent empties! Sorry for all the picture spam - i didn't want to tote empty items home from my trip

 

IMG_7458.jpgSorry for the weird lighting - the hotel bathroom light was super low

Loves: Josie Maran (thank you so much @eshoe Smiley Happy ), Belief

Likes: Fresh (don't love the scent), ABH Brow Wiz (I prefer the bigger tip version, this one always crumbles on me)

Dislike: Glow recipe (!!!) - i know, i'm surprised, too. It just felt like the texture was separating or something? I couldn't get a consistent texture. Sometimes it would be super yucky gel then other times very smooth gel. I think i should just stop trying to find gel masks to like; they're just not my thing. 

No opinion of the toothpaste, lol. It worked

Loves: LM (already repurchased for the 3rd time), Jack Black (Love you 4ever), Clinique (really good and doesn't burn), Moraccannoil (love love love), DDG (makes my skin feel great super fast).

Eh: Lancome - hard to get a good feel on a skincare foil.

Loves: All except the Watermelon Creme Shop. Lapcos Collagen is an all time favorite and possibly my favorite sheet mask brand.

Like: Watermelon Creme Shop. I didn't dislike this one but i won't go out of my way to repurchase. I'm not a super big fan of Watermelon scents and it dried up faster than normal.

 

 

 

 

Re: Empties - 2019

Jack black is my fave too @scott1201. Did you like the peach and lily? I tried to get some during a GWP bag event but the store I was buying through didn't stock them so I never ended up trying them.

Re: Empties - 2019

Hi @scott1201,

 

I love the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil. The texture feels so nice! Interesting about the Glow Recipe! I have yet to try it! Thanks for the feedback! 

 

Best Wishes,

 

Janean
