Wow, I am so behind on basically everything! No surprise, am I right?
I seem to be absent more often. I’m sorry.
Trust me, I’m trying so hard to prioritize what content to put out first. I’ve also been busy with other stuff and I only have night time to edit anything and everything and well… I do need sleep too. My bad habits are catching up to me again (i.e. 5 hrs of sleep each night, no bueno!).
Anyway, let’s catch up on products I’ve used up in April. Better late than never! I’m so stoked because there were lots of products. I usually don’t empty this many in one single month!
Have I bored you with my videos yet??
Hair / Bath & Body
- Hemp Moisturizing Pure Goodness Shampoo
- Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo (unscented)
- Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
- Yardley London English Lavender Bath Bar
- Victoria’s Secret Cherry Blossom & Peach Fragrance Mist
I do not recommend the Hemp shampoo. It didn’t lather nicely, I had to wash my hair twice with it, and I know washing your hair that much strips your hair from its natural oils, causing it to become more oily and your girl doesn’t need that! I confused this brand with the Hempz one, not the same thing! HUGE let down!
The NYM products are some of my favorite hair products. The dry shampoo works well for me and the texturizing spray makes it effortless to style my hair and be out the door in less than 5 mins. It also enhances my waves so that’s a BONUS!
The Yardley bath bar was found at dollar store, and I liked it. It’s paraben, sulfate AND cruelty free. It lathers up nicely and I also loved how subtle the scent of lavender was.
Finally, the VS Love Spell fragrance mist. This cherry blossom & peach one has been my favorite, I haven’t found another one that I like more from VS and I typically don’t buy these myself, they are gifted to me. I do however recommend it if you’re into floral and fruity scents.
Skincare & Makeup
- Tony Moly The Hayan Cherry Blossom Brightening Essence
- Belif The True Cream – Aqua Bomb
- Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb
- VIICode T2 Oxygen Eye Cream
- Real Techniques Complexion Sponge
- Wet n Wild Shutter Shock Eyelashes
- Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
- Benefit Gimme Brow Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in 5
- Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil in 4
Loved the TM essence, one of my favorites but I think it got discontinued.
Belif has great products; I used both the aqua and eye bomb during winter and they hydrated my skin beautifully! The aqua bomb can be used all year long, I previously tried it during the summer and it held up nicely. The eye bomb rescued my dry eyelids during the winter. So grateful!
VIICode eye cream is expensive but I saw results within one week which was mind blowing. I still have a full review on the blog.
The RT sponge is my absolute favorite! I wouldn’t trade it for the beauty blender because this one is more affordable and it needs to be replaced every 3 to 6 months anyway.
Th WnW lashes are the perfect combination of dramatic, fluttery, and natural. They’re some of my favorite drugstore falsies and the eyelash glue that comes with it works great!
I’m not sure if I like the Marc Jacobs mascara because I didn’t see its full potential until the 3 month mark which is close to its expiry date. Most mascaras suck to me, and I don’t have long, curly lashes. Finding my perfect mascara has been difficult but I have a ton more to go through so wish me luck!
Lastly, the Benefit Gimme Brow and the Precisely, My Brow Pencil (full review) have been the best combo ever! I love the fine tip of the brow pencil, even though it wasn’t my shade. All the Gimme Brow was good for, was to cancel out the reddish tones on the pencil. I didn’t find it to be a staple so I can live without it.
I’ve emptied a total of 14 products this month so I’m super proud of myself! It feels so good to be making a dent on my stash! I think my method of sticking to certain products each month is paying off 🙂
Wish me luck for this month as well, so far I only have one product.
How are you guys doing on your empties lately??
