Empties - 2019

nope to the blueberry sheet mask, it contains alcohol high on the ingredients list, liked the banobagi mask and dp hue acv the vinegar smell was not overpowering and it did a good job at cleansing. ๐Ÿ’— everything else ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Empties - 2019

Empties for January (so far).Empties 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 Iโ€™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

my empties for the week, LOVED all but just LIKED the leaders mask and the Dr Althea mask was a pain in the booty, the hydrogel masks fell off their protective layers, so I applied the chin piece wrong uughhhh lol

Empties - 2019

My last 2 weeks empties. Too faced mascara/eyeliner was dried out so I destashed but cant say whether or not they were good because I dont remember when I used them last. The 2 eye products: fresh was not hydrating enough. perricone Md started out a like but I noticed it made my eyelids darken. ๐Ÿคฌ so that had to go. the Mario cleanser was meh. It was ok but nothing I would purchase. it also cant be used on the eyes which defeats the purpose of a cleanser for me. The origins was also a like until I started using it more to get rid of it. It stripped my face & may have caused me to.break out๐Ÿคฌ I think I reviewed the masks in that thread. so any other questions feel free to ask!

oh no! @sonnydee sorry to hear it stripped your skin, tha...

oh no! @sonnydee sorry to hear it stripped your skin, that happens to be with certain cleansers too

Empties - 2019

this week was extremely hard to focus on much of anything! I did manage to get some masking in and finished a caudalie moisturizer. loved all the sheet masks but the milk one, contains alcohol and my skin was regretting that one. the caudalie, I didn't really care for either, I felt like if I used it during the day, I was more oily than usually twords the afternoon.

Re: Empties - 2019

The pan challenge end of the year blitz helped me finish up some lingering products!

New to me:
Glow recipe watermelon sleep mask: First of all- love the scent! I really liked using this, I am going to go without for a little time to decide if it's a need to purchase or not though. 
I dew care hydrating peel off mask: The holographic effects are adorable, it's not dehydrating like most peel masks, and it actually peels off! I'd like to use it more to comment more on the hydrating effects. I'm not sure if it's a staple but I had fun using it.

Other notes:
SR luna- I go back and forth on this after going through a couple FS luna's and trying other things. I don't think it's my HG but always love using it and am less than impressed by other retinols I try. 
Sephora foot masks: great for maintenance between foot peels.
ABH brow wiz: It's soft, so I go through them pretty quickly... But results.

Like/OK

Spoiler
Clinique TDDO balm: it works great for it's purpose, I just love omorovizca thermal cleansing balm as far as balms go. 
Florapy calendua sage: Love florapy and this was no exception but I could smell the sage and wasn't into that. 
SR CEO serum: no harm no foul. I was glad to finish this early in the month to how my skin was with/without. I didn't see any major changes when I stopped using. 
SR CEO cream: again no harm no foul. It was ok, the citrus scent was strong coming out of the jar but wore down quickly.
Phyto hair masque: I probably should make this a dislike. My hair was super dry after using it, got knots while blow drying, etc. Yep. Definitely a dislike.
MB silver mask: I actually really liked this but I'm downgrading it because it's kinda a pain to work with the powder and I think there's easier things to use that yield the same results. 
Bite lip mask: decluttering this bc it leaks. This was an HG for me but jack black is the new king in town. I still really like this, I just prefer the jack black for it being less sticky. 

Not pictured are all no's/declutters:

  • Davines minu shampoo- again dry, knotty hair.
  • PTR cucumber- not sure what happened, I used to really like this but now my skin is less than into it, gets irritated after use. 
  • Phyto hair mask from above.
  • UD smokey palette- Decluttered what I didn't transplant to my magnetic palette. The rest had been barely used and sitting untouched for 2+ years. 

 

 

wow you really used those up! @CC3616

I feel like I didn't have a lot of empties this month but I managed to get through a few.

 

I liked all of these!I liked all of these!Meh.Meh.

Re: Empties - 2019

@CookieGirl1 I love the Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warriorโ„ข 2-in-1 Plumping Moisturizer + Serum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL. It leaves my skin so soft and I love that it is a 2-in-1. Thanks for sharing you empties ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Best,

I donโ€™t think I would repurchase any of these, though they are nice products and I enjoyed using them. Very pleasant scents to all of them.

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 Burtโ€™s Bees Lip Crayon, my daily staple. ๐Ÿ’— 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 rest:C978D89A-1F53-4334-8E23-B44344DB468B.jpeg

 

Spoiler
The PTR is good but my makeup pilled after using it. Itโ€™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 itโ€™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, Iโ€™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 Spice๐Ÿ˜† The DERMAdoctor serum didnโ€™t do anything for me and the scent was also awful.
