Hi @suzyo,

 

Lots of great products. The Mama Mia is so awesome, it is always in my shower.

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: Empties - 2019

@suzyo @Look at all that olaplex!!!

Re: Empties - 2019

Why did you find the Algenist a nope? @suzyo 

Re: Empties - 2019

@l8totheparty  It wasn't moisturizing enough, and broke me out. I'm not sure if I broke out because of the lack of moisture, or if my skin was just irritated by something in it. I had used it in the past and liked it, but now I use prescription retinol and my skin doesn't like the same things, so I would take my review with a grain of salt. I have another jar that came in a gift set, and I have no idea what I'm gonna do with it, lol.

Re: Empties - 2019

Give it away to a family member, friend, or shelter? @suzyo  That's too bad the formula no longer worked on you.

Re: Empties - 2019

Nice empties @suzyo. That Lush American Pie sounds like it smells wonderful! Will check it out the next time I’m in the store.

Re: Empties - 2019

October sheet mask empties - I'm missing a few but these are most of the sheet masks I used up last month.

LOVES
Wednesday Flower Road Pomegranate Snail Mask is one of those masks that I would buy in mass quantities if I could ever find it again. Such a great mask and how adorable is that packaging?!! Speaking of adorable masks that perform well, I love the hydration I get from The Crème Shop Slow Down, Skin! Face Mask. I have no opinion as to its anti-aging capabilities but it leaves my skin soft, plump and hydrated! 

I am also especially fond of the peripera Smoothie Time Avocado Mask Sheet (Nourishing) in the winter and/or when my skin leans more dry. This is one of my favorite avocado sheet masks.

Another fabulous hydrating mask is the Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask (Bamboo); bamboo is one of those ingredients that has been a recent discovery of mine and I have to say that I love it – I’ve tried it in wash off masks, sheet masks, skincare products and it’s just a favorite ingredient of mine across the board. The sheet mask was no exception; this one would work superbly for daily sheet masking.

Megrhythm Gentle Steam Eye Masks were my favorite discoveries of 2018 and they continue to be deeply cherished by me. I’ve noticed that I reach for this yuzu scented one when my head is throbbing, congested or I’m having a particularly challenging time of getting to sleep, or falling back asleep. This one has the strongest scent to me; I ordinarily gravitate to the more subtly scented masks but like I said, this is a go to or nights when I’m having a harder time falling asleep.

Re: Empties - 2019

These are not all the empties but the ones That lasted a WHILE plus I loved them. 

Indie Lee oil is my HG for a few months now. I bought it in March and it lasted me till end of Oct with 2-3 drop mixed in my moisturizer every morning and night. Sinks right in and provides so much moisture/hydration. ❤️❤️

like both the lip balms also. And bought back-ups.

Re: Empties - 2019

Hi @naturalooks15 I love that container! 

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: Empties - 2019

@naturalooks15 I've been wanting to try that oil. I love the storage container!

Re: Empties - 2019

While I've been completely absent in posting my empties, I have still been keeping track.  I'm currently at 416 year to date empties.  All the hotel soaps and shampoos are actually left over from an ex who used to constantly bring them home.  I have a thing about wasting products so I'm on a renewed mission to use these up.  Probably at least another 40 or so to go lol.  I'm hoping that as a mini panning goal I can finish them up before the end of the year.

Re: Empties - 2019

Wow !! @missjeanie  That's some impressive amount of empties. You are inspiring me to go through everything and round some up though I have thrown most of the empty containers but I know there are still some. 

Re: Empties - 2019

Good job @missjeanie wow that's a ton of empties.. New year's resolution,, to count each and every empty I have for the year!! 🙌♥️

Re: Empties - 2019

@lmaster @My goal last year was to have one empty for every day of the year. I’ll have to go back but I know I wanted to bear out last years numbers this year. Next year I might aim for either 2 a day or 1000 if I’m feeling particularly ambitious. I do count masks and samples.... so probably doable 🤷🏻‍♀️

October 2019 Empties

Empties-2019.10.PNG

 

BAREMINERALS - Original Loose Powder Mineral Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Spoiler
Got samples of shades 02 Fair Ivory and 03 Fairly Light. I think 02 works better for my skin tone but both were doable. I purchased the 02 with Ulta points. I find Bare Minerals reliable but am curious to branch out into different foundations or tinted moisturizers (which I haven't found many that are light) over the next year.

La Roche Posay Mineral SPF 50

Spoiler
Typical sunscreen white cast and somewhat shiny. I wouldn't use it as a daily sunscreen because it can't be worn alone. Good to try a sample but wouldn't buy.

SUPERGOOP! - 100% Mineral Smooth & Poreless Matte Screen SPF 40

Spoiler
@faeriegirl sent me this sample. The tint, despite seeming dark out of the tube, blended beautifully into my skin. It felt a lot like a primer. I did get pimples on my chin when I used it a few times but they came and went quickly. I also don't know how much I needed to apply since it seems more like a primer than a sunscreen. I loved trying this and how smoothly it blended but still need to search for my perfect daily sunscreen.

Skindinavia Setting Spray

Spoiler
I bought the bridal setting spray for my wedding in 2015. I finally used that up a few months back and moved onto this mini that came free with purchase. Not sure if I could tell a difference between the two but I'm not a setting spray officiando. Worked fine to me.

Vichy Mineral 89

Spoiler
I love this hyaluronic acid serum. I find it does help with my lines, especially the sleep ones I tend to get by my nose. Price is the reason it's not a love. Though I have been getting it with 40% coupons at CVS which make it a lot more budget friendly. I'm curious to try THE INKEY LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum since it is a lower price point and see how it compares. One more bottle of Vichy and then The Inkey List gets a try.

CeraVe PM

Spoiler
Love the ceramides and niacinamide. I like that it has a thinner consistency than the CeraVe Baby lotion but I'm still debating which one to use since they have mostly similar "good" ingredients. I'll have to look at costs per use and also see how the reformulation (thinner than previous) affected the number of uses in the bottle.

Stress Relief Body Wash

Spoiler
It was fine. I enjoy this type of scent more for a bath or lotion vs. a daily body wash.

Cucumber Melon Lotion

Spoiler
Such a nice throwback that the lovely @Shosh85 sent me. It was so nostalgic, even some of the guys at worked stopped into my office to verify it was that scent. Probably not my favorite lotion of all time but it was nice to use again.

Energy Body Lotion

Spoiler
This has a citrusy type smell and does provide "energy." It just isn't a scent for me. I tried to use it as a kitchen lotion for after doing the dishes but would rarely use it. I finally took it to work and my goal was to use it once a week and finish it this year - yay, I did it!

Cotton Squares

Spoiler
I like cotton squares better than cotton rounds. And then @missjeanie treated me to the SHISEIDO - Facial Cotton- what a difference! My plan is going with reusable rounds instead after I finish the Shiseido cotton.

DEVACURL - SUPERCREAM™ Coconut Curl Styler

Spoiler
This product is best for wash day for me. It forms more clumps and my ends have a more defined curl pattern but my top seems less wavy when I use it.

DEVACURL - B'LEAVE-IN™ Miracle Curl Plumper

Spoiler
It's my refresh day product that hasn't let me down. It helps more with wave than curl for me. I just rewet hair and add and let it air dry. Good stuff!
