I wasn't that impressed with the last Oozoo Bear mask that I tried, but I quite liked this one - it smelled nice too. Would recommend all of the masks I've used recently Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

empties.jpgCan you believe I actually remembered to hold on to these?

I am probably the worst at hanging on to beauty trash to talk about later, but everything seemed to go empty at the same time which was convenient! I really LOVED the 111 Skin Serum that I got from Ipsy Glam Plus, it wasn't overly fragranced, had a lightweight non-greasy consistency and absorbed into the skin quickly. It's at least double from the vitamin C serum I usually use (Truth Serum), but I actually prefer it now...I know...big words!

 

I've always been a fan of the rose line from Fresh, and was happy to get back to using them after trying other products. I still enjoy them but feel like I've gotten to like other products more. I used the deep hydration face cream at night because it does not work well as a daytime moisturizer under makeup. It pills up. The petals in the toner don't bother me in the beginning, but towards the bottom of the bottle it gets harder and harder to get the product out of it. It feels wasteful because I see that there is still some liquid there, but can't get to it. 

 

Officially a fan of the Private Doctor Minus Serum! I wasn't sure what to expect because I bought it on a whim when it first came to Sephora and was blown away by the results. I'm almost officially hitting my 30's, and was starting to notice some fine lines forming on my forehead. This serum was almost a reset button and since using it I haven't seen those lines be noticeable, amazing! 

 

The Bioderma is a great staple, got a bundle on Beautylish a while back so I'm set for a while. It really does remove everything without leaving behind a weird residue. 

 

The LaVanilla deodorant in this "limited edition" scent has been my go to for the past couple of years! I have been feeling panicky about what I would do if it did get discontinued so I've been venturing out and trying other things. I will continue to repurchase if I can, but if I can't then I have found an alternative Smiley Very Happy

 

I haven't felt that I really needed an eye cream until this past year, and wasn't sure where to start. I've been hearing great things about the good ol RoC cream so I decided to give it a shot. I really liked it! I saw nice results. I just got a different one to try through Ipsy, but if I don't like it I may go back to this or try the one from Inkey List. 

 

Urban Decay Primer Potion is always in my makeup collection, already have a new tube open. 

 

I like to use lots of different mascaras at a time because I feel like they all bring different things to the table lol. I like all of these, TF BTS has been a staple for me for a very long time, The Wander Beauty one has quickly become a new favorite, it gets those lower lashes so well and the Tarte Maneater was surprisingly great at defining my lashes.

Awesome! @Mcakes 

@Mcakes great job!!

@Mcakes great job!!

Re: Empties - 2019

Up until January of this year I never paid much attention to my makeup, just making sure I looked presentable.  Always having 1 mascara to use that did the job.  Now branching out of the drugstore into other brands has opened my eyes.  Samples are great to try out to get to know the products!  I've got 3 mascaras on the go.  From 1 mascara for my whole life to 3.  And I like all 3.  So wild. 

 

Great empties, @Mcakes

Weekly empties:

Oh that Glossier has been a pain. It's the Moisturizing Moon Mask and although it provides a bit of cooling while it's on, it is soooooo difficult to remove and leaves my skin feeling slimy. There is about one mask's worth left in here, but after using it last night on my cheeks, decided to toss it. At least I tried it. The May Lindstorm Blue Cocoon was nice for winter, but I've created a little copycat with some Kopari and blue tansy that almost looks and feels identical. The Smith & Cult is one interesting primer. It goes on a semi-opaque black and for the most part, loses its hue. It grips like the Milk Hydro grip does with out the added stickiness. It held my foundation well without caking. Not bad. The Femmue Vital C was an absolutely LOVELY serum from @keana1. Most Vita C serums smell like eau d'hot dog and this was just pleasant as could be. Thank you for this, keana1! The Kopari mask was cooling and just plain awesome. I can see why @lmaster loves it. The DE Beste, I wasn't overwhelmed with but it was gentle and didn't strip my skin. The Bum Bum Cream, already have a backup. Love, love, love this stuff. There is a wax melt called 'YASSS Queen' at Target that smells just like it, for anyone who's interested Smiley Wink Love the Kiehl's Calendula toner and the Laneige Water Bank was another love that I will be purchasing FS of after I finish another DS. Bkr Paris Water balm, I have a few of these on hand plus a couple FS ones. Another <3.

I shared a few of these masks with my daughter which is why it seems like there are so many this week. The Freeman Melting Sugar was my first intro to the brand,  @IndyQT317 raves about them so it was time to try. I think we picked up 10 or so single use wash-off masks Smiley Very Happy They are just enough for the two of us to try. No real noticeable scent, no stinging...and lots of fun! The Peripera is a brand I need to explore, this mask was fantastic.
 
The Bawdy Butt masks are predictably hilarious and as far as I can tell, haven't 'illuminated' or 'energized' the masking area. I have one left I am going to try, not expecting much besides some good laughs. The Hectic It's Pack Time mask was interesting, would RP. The Smith & Vandiver Be Bright wash-off mask gave me red skin with little welts. The only thing I could pinpoint that may have been the culprit was clove extract. Thank goodness I had the Tony Moly Calendula mask on hand, it was soothing and helped calm my skin.

The Mommy & Me masks were a gift from @sonnydee and a hit, thank you so much! The Yes To Grapefruit Brightening Unicorn peel off mask was my daughter's and her first peel-off mask. Her skin usually tingles within minutes of a sheet mask, so I was concerned this would be painful/irritating. I gave her fair warning and it turned out to be a great mask for her. Go figure. 

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe  those mommy and me masks are adorable 

Re: Empties - 2019

Aren’t they fun @emaisgr8? They make a Daddy and Me set too😂

Re: Empties - 2019

Re: Empties - 2019

Ha ha I love when other people love the Bum Bum cream too @JaneanBT. The sparkles are just an added bonus ✨ 

Re: Empties - 2019

@eshoe  wow I can’t believe you remembered to hang on to all these!! I always say I’ll post on this thread but I forget to save!

Re: Empties - 2019

The sample bags from Sephora are perfect for holding on to empties under the sink @ather. I used to keep them separated by foils/DS/FS/masks but now it's just one bag for masks and one for everything else. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Oh awesome! @eshoe so glad you liked it!

RE: Re: Empties - 2019

I love the Brazilian Bum Bum Creams, I get compliments all the time when I wear that one!
