Hey guys! Today I have a product empties post! I know you guys love these posts so I try to do them at least once a month. As usual, it’s mainly skincare, but I do have three makeup products today. So here are my empties!
Up first is dry shampoo. I don’t use that much dry shampoo. Since starting my sort of curly girl journey I have been washing my hair more. The longer I wait to wash my hair, the more my curls fall out and look limp. So because of that I wash my hair every other day and don’t use dry shampoo that much. But when I do use dry shampoo, I like this Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark Tones. I think it’s pretty good. I’m not the best judge for dry shampoo because whenever I do use it I usually also put my hair into some hair-up hairstyle to hide the grease. BUT this doesn’t leave the dreaded white cast and that’s the best thing about it. So I did repurchase it because it works and it’s not a product I use all the time.
Up next is another sample of the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. I have so many of these mini face cleansers because they are often used as rewards at Sephora. I said this so many times but this is a great face cleanser if you want something gentle or if you have sensitive skin. I like to use this cleanser after removing my makeup to double cleanse. I do like this cleanser and I’m pretty sure I have more samples of this haha.
I don’t think I need to explain my love of the ABH Brow Wiz. This is one of my favourite brow pencils and it’s a makeup product that I go through the fastest. Of course, I have already purchased another one.
It’s hard to see in the photo but I used this eyeshadow product until there was nothing left. The outer part of the packaging is cracked from me pushing and squeezing out every last bit of the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer. I know not many people use eyeshadow primers anymore and just use concealer. But if you are like me and have oily eyelids, then a primer is a must. If I don’t use a primer my eyeshadow will crease and move around. This primer helps keep my eyeshadow in place and lasts throughout the day.
I don’t know why but they don’t sell this anymore at Sephora which makes me scared. Because I love the CoverFX Perfect Setting Powder. This was everyone’s favourite on Youtube for a while. It was Laura Mercier and then this CoverFX powder. And that’s because it’s amazing. It doesn’t leave me creasing or with a white cast. It’s so smooth and doesn’t make me look cakey. I like this powder and would like to repurchase it in the future. I currently have too many powders in my collection though so I’m going to wait a bit before I purchase another one.
The next product is the Elemis Superfood Cica Calm Hydration Juice. I got this product in my Boxycharm and I ended up liking it. First, it’s in a pump which makes it so easy to pump out and apply all over the face. Second, it just makes my face look and feel so hydrated. It loved using it! But it’s not easily available in Canada and I don’t love it enough to order it from their website. So unfortunately I will not be repurchasing this.
Up next is the OLEHENRIKSEN Balancing Force Oil Control Toner. I like this toner and I do notice a difference in my skin when I don’t use this toner. It helps with the overall texture of my skin. It helps get rid of all those little bumps and makes my skin feel smoother and less oily overall. I would recommend this to anyone with oily skin or texture. And I have repurchased it.
The final product is the Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Make-Up Remover. I’ve been using this makeup remover for years so you guys know that I love it. I use this when I’m removing a normal amount of makeup, but my heavy-duty full-face glam. I like it because it’s easy. I just put a little on a cotton round, swipe it across my eyes a few times and I’m done. It removes all liner and mascara I have. And it’s from the drugstore! I have already purchased another one because it’s great!
And those are my recent product empties! Let me know if you guys have tried any of these products and what your thoughts were on them.
