Re: Empties - 2019

@l8totheparty  Well, there are so many antioxidants, I can’t list them all, let alone remember 1/2 of them. Smiley Very Happy Different antioxidants can help protect skin from pollutants, as well as brighten, firm, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, soothe redness, and balance uneven skin tone. Vitamins C, E, and A (retinol) are antioxidants most folks know and love. Other common antioxidant ingredients are green/black/white/ tea, ferulic acid, coQ10, various berries, vitamin B3 (niacinamide, already one of your best friends Smiley Happy ), and plenty more I’m forgetting right now. Some facial oils, like rosehip, are also good sources of antioxidants. 

 

My moisturizer contains green tea, kale, with vitamins C, E, and B5 (panthenol), so I get 2 daily doses of antioxidants, plus more if I also use one of my face oils. My eye serum contains ferulic acid and retinol. I’m using a 1% retinol serum twice a week now. And I do have a vitamin C serum that contains a mix of antioxidants but honestly, I’m not sure yet if I like it. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Ok, whew. I seem to have a lot of those popular ingredients in my skincare.  Here I was worried I had none. 🙄 

 

I do wonder at times if I might be overlapping hard in some areas, but as long as it isn't in the exfoliants, I'm not as concerned at the moment. 

 

I have found that I'm not able to use vitamin C everyday, as my skin ends up flushed with it if used that often.  I'm currently going for a once every couple of days sort of thing, seeing what works. 

Thanks for all the info!

Re: Empties - 2019

Great empties @WinglessOne! Love The Ordinary Buffet serum; I'm thinking about trying out The Ordinary Buffet + Copper Peptides. That stinks about the Crabtree & Evelyn products - hopefully your TJ Maxx / Marshalls will have more of them again - the ones near me restock certain things in waves.I remember seeing a lot of them a few months ago, then nothing and now I see a couple here and there - I'll keep an eye out for you.

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks @itsfi ! There was a C&E outlet store at a Florida outlet mall I used to visit while visiting my parents. That place was a treasure trove of discontinued products. It disappeared last year. ☹️ Now I’m searching for a new body wash; I’ve got several on deck to try, including a Lush one I usually only use in the winter. But I’d be thrilled to have bottles of that jojoba body wash again.

 

I’ve also considered trying Buffet + Copper Peptides. The color concerns me a bit 😂 but at such a low price, it’s probably worth trying. I just restocked 2 bottles of regular Buffet, so I’ll wait til they’re empty before buying the copper peptides version. 

Re: Empties - 2019

I have also wondered about trying the copper Buffet out as well!  I more regular to go and then it may happen. @WinglessOne @itsfi 

Re: Empties - 2019

My June sheet mask empties. Lots of sheet masks this month - a good number were loves or likes!

IMG_E8455.JPGTop row are meh; bottom row of Yadah masks are OK; they're fine

IMG_E8456.JPGNahs - none of these were irritating and none caused any allergic or negative reaction but they weren't particularly standout either.

 

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi   It’s all so colourful this month!!!  

Re: Empties - 2019

Colorful in homage to the beginning of summer @heartsmyface! lol. Smiley Happy

Thanks @lmaster! June was a good month for sheet masks! Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi, do you have any idea how much I love seeing all of your masking Empties?  You are definitely one of our top Masking Moguls here and you totally inspire me.

Re: Empties - 2019

Awww, @CookieGirl1, that's so sweet. There are a lot of fabulous maskers on BIC with amazing mask selections - my looooong list of masks "to buy" or "to look into" has grown sooo much. I love hearing about and seeing what everyone is using for masks. Smiley Happy

Re: Empties - 2019

Oh I think I posted my empties in the other empties thread so cross posting now.  This is my empties from home even though i wasn’t home half the month. 4AF85E75-19D8-42B3-AF29-5955A678D64F.jpeg

Re: wow that's some empties for sure @heartsmyface

@lmaster   Thanks.  It’s been nice getting through stuff now that I’m not constantly bringing items in for one or two uses.  

Re: Empties - 2019

Good month of working through products @heartsmyface! Hmmm, that Dermadoctor peel looks good. Will check that out once I've made a dent in my peels. Smiley Wink 

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi   It is good!  I rotate between three peels -neostrata, ole hendriksen, and the dermadoctor.  I would recommend any of the three.  All are very effectiveSmiley Happy 

Re: Empties - 2019

@heartsmyface, I love that OH peel - so good and smells nice! Hmmm... why do I get the feeling that I'll be adding the Dermadoctor to my group of peels sooner rather than later?! hahaha! Smiley Wink Can't help it, love my peels. <3

Re: Empties - 2019

@itsfi   Me too!  Literally everything behaves better on freshly peeled skin!  

Re: Empties - 2019

Funny - I love that Urban Decay Perversion mascara!  I haven't tried anything else in your pile. Lol @heartsmyface 

Re: Empties - 2019

@l8totheparty   Omg i gave it a good trial.  It made me into a raccoon no matter what I did.  I like dewy skin normally so I thought maybe my lashes were touching my face and it was transferring because it was so moist.  It even transferred with powder applied thickly under my eyes.  it hates me.  

Mon the bright side I’ve started the process curating my mascarasSmiley Happy
