Re: Empties - 2019

Eek! That sucks, @missjeanie! I never buy Amika products at full price either. They're really good, but I'd break the bank if I did 🙈

Re: Empties - 2019

@missjeanie  I feel the same! I haven't seen them at TJ's recently, but I refuse to buy them at full price now! – so I'll just wait and hope they show up. Haha! 😂🤞

Re: Empties - 2019

@Shosh85 @SpaceLlama I haven't seen much the last month or so here, but I'm going to be keeping an eye out at the discount stores here for sure.  I'll be needing a new one in the next month lol

Re: Empties - 2019

Love Amika's hair masks too, @Shosh85 Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

@SpaceLlama  Yup! They're my favorite – especially when I can find them at TJ Maxx! 👍😉

Top pic row and Sephora Orchid eye mask, all loved. I meant to get the Skyn Forehead masks rather than smile lines, I can’t keep a straight expression for 15 minutes so it was a bit of a challenge. The DAF mask I reviewed on the masking thread; it was possibly the most bizarre mask I’ve ever used. The Step 1 cleanser had a stale popcorn scent, the Step 2 sheet mask had a scent like Off bug spray and was dyed so heavily pink that it stained my sink and my face, and the Step 3 moisturizing cream looked and smelled like greasy sunscreen. I feel/felt bad for even noting these things but it was a really, really strange masking session.

Bottom pic top level loved the foils and lone ExfoliKate, which is the only spot treatment that has worked for me. The Josie Maran is pretty good, I just picked up the Milk Watermelon clay stick and I’m loving the mess-free aspect of it. The Jo Malone Honeysuckle was nice but didn’t last and is a bit too floral for me. I am using the Red Roses right now and think I’ve found my spring scent- it smells just like rose petals! 

Love the Caudalie for the scent, still haven't figured out how essences add to my routine, but I still try them. The AmorePacific was nice. Loved the Bare Mineral lip lacquer and imagine I will be picking one or more up the next time I need a colored gloss. They have a cupcake scent which is so nice! The Skinceuticals was great and appeared to plump my skin, but my favorite HA serum is $7.99/oz and performs the same🤔. 

I wanted to love Commodity Bergamot but sadly it also reminded me of bug spray. I wore it all week, I promise it wasn’t just the sheet mask😂 thank goodness it didn’t last (please, I wish Velvet lasted longer, I LOVE that one!).

Re: Empties - 2019

I would give the DAF mask system this emoji ☣️ @eshoe ! ( bio hazard ). Cupcake smelled lip gloss, I’m in !

Re: Empties - 2019

I am so excited to pick up the lip lacquer if I think of it when I need it @keana1 😆

Re: Empties - 2019

You’ll think about using it! remember cupcake 🧁, think cupcake 🧁 @eshoe ! 😋

Re: Empties - 2019

Hahaha @eshoe, that emoji!! There's a cupcake scent to the BareMinerals lip lacquer? Gonna have to pull out my sample of that one. Smiley Wink Ohhh, the Skinceuticals B5 gel is a nice one but, yes, it is definitely on the pricey side. Which hyaluronic acid serum is your favorite? $7.99/oz is a great price point for HA.

Re: Empties - 2019

I’m so glad you picked up a sample of the Bare Minerals, @itsfi - it was really nice! I don’t usually finish lip samples and I used 3/4 on this one which made me happy. I found a bottle of Anjou Hyaluronic Acid serum at TJ Maxx for $5.99 though it sells for $7.99. I haven’t replaced it yet but I plan to, my skin just likes itSmiley Happy

that emoji is Killin me!! @eshoe

that emoji is Killin me!! @eshoe

Re: that emoji is Killin me!! @eshoe

You must have this mask lurking in your box @lmaster ...you can blame me 💯 %😆

Re: Empties - 2019

I'm looking forward to seeing how you like the Milk Watermelon Mask @eshoe.. I just saw an advert today for an Olay one and immediately I thought of the milk ones and how they could be so much easier to apply than traditional mud masks. 

Re: Empties - 2019

I’ve used it a couple of times @missjeanie, and it’s a clear winner in terms of messiness. NO notes about efficacy, but it’s an easy application and even easier clean-up. Most clay masks work the same on me, so I am happy to take a mess-free option. I will be posting about it again soon, I love it so far though.

 

eta: I think I saw that ad in print, I want to try it just out of curiosity. thank you for reminding me!

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe Nice! Your empties look a lot like mine – mostly masks! Haha! 

I love the emoji you used for the DAF mask! Haha! It's perfect! 👌🤣

Re: Empties - 2019

It was the best way to describe it @Shosh85 😆

Re: Empties - 2019

Empties from mid-Dec through mid-Jan while I was away from home. They start with loves/repurchases from the top going down to absolute nopes, for the most part.

Things that really stood out: the Andalou Naturals sheet mask was really moisturizing and left my skin feeling nice. I have posted this many times about the Framboos serum, I already have a backup of that. On the bad side were the Spa Life mask, horrible fit that just wouldn't stick to my face. And the Keratase shampoo, too harsh and stripped color from my hair.

 

The Verb and Davines shampoos and conditioners seemed ok, but I need to try some more samples to really determine if they are good or not. Unfortunately, the bottom mascara sample was too old and dried out for me to tell if it was any good or not.

Re: Empties - 2019

@snoflakefaerie  I love that you included your toothpaste! I work in a dental office and that is one we recommend a lot! 😂👍

I got the Kale and the BlackBerry Juice Up Masks from Ipsy, so it's nice to have a heads up.... I think I'll try the Blackberry one first! 😉

@snoflakefaerie you didn't like the juice up mask?

@snoflakefaerie you didn't like the juice up mask?

Re: @snoflakefaerie you didn't like the juice up mask?

I liked the results of it @lmaster , but it sort of smelled like bug spray to me, so I’m not sure I would seek it out in the future. I still have the blue(berry?) one from my Ipsy, so I’ll pay attention to that one to see if they smell similar. I was sad because I liked it otherwise.
