Re: Empties - 2019

That's not too bad @lmaster. I've been gradually trying to use perfume for anything I can. Husband smells up the bathroom, who needs air freshener when you have perfume?! Seriously I have a few things from high school which is ridiculous. But it still smells good so I hate to throw it in the trash.

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica omg you just reminded me of that stuff called exclamation perfume stuff,,, my gma bought me some in high school and it sat around for years!! You are too funny,,,,I do the same thing in the bathroom ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Empties - 2019

What a great memory! ๐Ÿ˜€โค @lmaster 

Re: Empties - 2019

Love gma @l8totheparty she was the best ever!!

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster  I remember that!

Re: Empties - 2019

@emaisgr8 it was kinda like an intro into perfume... At least that's what my gma thought in her mind ๐Ÿ˜‚

August 2019 Empties

Empties-2019.08.PNG

 

Nivea Sun Protect SPF 50 PA+++

Spoiler
This is my daily sunscreen. Really wish it didn't have alcohol but it pretty cosmetically pleasing with or without makeup. Without it can be a little shiny for my liking though. Plan to try a couple sample sunscreens I have then see if this is my go-to.

Vaseline aloe lotion

Spoiler
I was a big couponer..I guess I still coupon but not to the extent I used to. I got in the bad habit of buying things just because they were cheap as opposed to things I needed. I had so much Vaseline lotion and after finishing this one, now only have 1 left - yay! I liked the aloe one. Thought it was nice and light for summer. Would I buy it again? Maybe if I had coupons. It's not the most amazing lotion ever but was fine.

CeraVe Baby lotion

Spoiler
Because this and the CeraVe PM have similar ingredients - the ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide - I decided to test if this could be a substitute for it. This is thicker and at first I thought I would definitely go back to the CeraVe PM as my daily lotion vs. this one. But now that I'm using CeraVe PM, I remember the new formulation's viscosity was made even thinner...maybe too thin. I want to see how quickly I use this up compared to the old formula and compare price per use. In any case, if you don't mind a somewhat thicker face lotion - this is packed with some good ingredients and I'd give it a thumbs up.

Coola makeup setting spray SPF 30

Spoiler
I was sent this in unicorn mail from the lovely @faeriegirl. This was so nice to try but I don't think is something I would purchase. I am pretty dedicated to using SPF and saw this product as a great refresher for the end of the day when I would only be out in the sun for an hour for sports before it became dark. It did smell like sunscreen but the spray was even and I assume it was decently effective - like I said, I wasn't out in the sun long but I never had any burns. If it crossed my path, I'd use it but wouldn't seek it out. I am curious about powder SPF in those brush contraptions - gimmicky or useful?

Misc. hotel lotion

Spoiler
Last two are lotions from hotels. The first was an aloe and mint one I think and the 2nd had more of an aromatherapy/spa smell. Both were fine and I'm glad they are no longer lingering on my counter. Use and move on!

Re: Empties - 2019

This is impressive @ShortErica ! I always feel proud when I have used a full container of lotion! 

 

Best Wishes,

 

Janean

Re: Empties - 2019

Me too @JaneanBT. Some lotions tend to last a while.

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica Great empties! 

 

Best,

Re: good job! @ShortErica keep pushing those products! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I felt like I started so slow but now it's some here and then some more there @lmaster. I'll be curious for my end of year totals.

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica  Nice set of empties! 

 

About sunscreen powders: I use Supergoop! Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 Translucent as my sunscreen re-up throughout the day, if Iโ€™m wearing any makeup besides brow pencil and lipstick. Itโ€™s very portable and easy to use, once you figure out how not to dispense too much powder at once. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I donโ€™t usually go for a matte finish all over my face, but this powderโ€™s good at toning down any liquid/gel/cream sunscreenโ€™s super shine effect. The retractable brush can be removed for cleaning. I donโ€™t like any brandโ€™s sunscreen spray, so powders are best for meโ€”aside from carrying and reapplying my base sunscreen throughout the day. 

Re: Empties - 2019

I second your powder sunscreen recommendation @WinglessOne. I love the Supergoop Invincible Setting Powder. Besides bringing it on the go for touch ups, I love putting this in my gym bag as it's the easiest way to re-apply sunscreen after a workout. <333

Re: Empties - 2019

Hi @WinglessOne ,

 

I have been looking for a powder SPF for reapplying through out the day! I will have to check this one out! 

 

Best Wishes,

 

Janean

Re: Empties - 2019

Thanks for the suggestion @WinglessOne! Have you tried any others and if so, any to definitely avoid?

Re: Empties - 2019

@ShortErica  There are a couple others I wanted to try. Supergoopโ€™s is the first one I tested and it performs so well for me, I havenโ€™t rushed to try any other brandโ€™s. ๐Ÿ˜„ 

 

Derma E makes one I had planned to try. Tarte also makes one that Sephora sells: tarte Tarteguard Mineral Powder Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Physicians Formula makes an SPF 30 pressed powder compact Iโ€™m told is quite good. I havenโ€™t dug deeper to find out if any of those are good for dry or mostly-dry combo skin; Iโ€™d need something that doesnโ€™t cake up or make my face look like sand. Supergoopโ€™s doesnโ€™t do that to me: itโ€™s formulated with moisturizing ingredients. 

 

Hopefully anyone else whoโ€™s tried a sunscreen powder will pipe up. ๐Ÿ™‚

YAY! We got another BUM BUM fan! I am currently using the First Aid Beauty Face Wash and have been enjoying it as it does not dry out my skin. This is a great set of empties!
