Product Empties — July 2021

Hi dolls!

I’m severely behind but I don’t want to throw away a bunch of my posts for the sake of “catching up”. So I’ll be catching up on some of my posts from last year in the upcoming weeks, hopefully, so I can move forward with newer stuff. I will make those posts brief, especially these empties posts because they are over 6 months old, ha!

However, I did not want to put them aside because I know some people like knowing what I think about products when I finish them and whether I will repurchase them or not. It also gives people insight on what the products are like.

So let’s get started it!
As always, feel free to skip around to whatever products interest you the most 🙂


Skincare

Tula Skincare Star Bright Nourishing & Brightening Cosmic Hydrogel Mask — my favorite mask ever! super hydrating and cooling and it soothes and smooths my skin!

Origins Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay — this was an ok mask. I did like it but I didn’t love it and it took me forever to use it up. I wouldn’t buy it.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Pore Purifying Mask — this was a great mask that got down deep into the pores. A little goes a long way! It took a long time to finish this one as well, but as great as it was, I don’t think I would buy it again as I prefer other masks.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rose Water — one of my favorite facial sprays! I’ve repurchased this again and again. Can’t get enough of it! I have a post all about it as well! 🙂

Pacifica Sea & C Love Vitamin Serum — this is probably my second bottle of this and it’s sooo good! Hydrating, absorbs quickly, lightweight, and makes my skin feel so soft!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA & BHA Pore-tight Toner — I could not believe how much I loved this toner! My skin absorbed it fairly quickly and my felt great while using this.

Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser — Indeed the most gentle cleanser. It was smooth and felt nice on my skin. Didn’t foam/bubble up a lot but still cleansed my face perfectly. I have a bigger size of this cleanser and can’t wait to use it again.

Makeup

Wet n Wild Coloricon Blush in Apricot in the Middle — This is a throw-away. Loved it but it’s too old and I have too many other blushes so I would like  to use those too. With Wet n Wild not being officially CF anymore, I don’t think I would repurchase.

Wet n Wild Photofocus Cucumber 3-in-1 Prime Water — This was a whatever kind of product for me. I prefer applying primers than a spray such as this because I didn’t really see it working. I’d rather use setting sprays than priming sprays.

Milk Makeup Kush Mascara — A great mascara all around. Too bad it’s so expensive! Luckily I have another mini to use up soon!

NYX Cosmetics Wonder Stick in Universal — Loved it back when contouring was a thing but I’ve moved on from that long ago and I haven’t touched it in the longest time. It’s great and it blends nicely, but there was a time where powder contouring was a better fit for me.

Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream — Also a throw-away. Loved it but couldn’t finish it fast enough. Looking forward to replacing this with something else to take care of my cuticles.

Haircare

Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo — This was a quick repurchase and I use it all the time. May end up getting it again if I don’t find something better.

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Strength & Moisture Leave-in Conditioner — One of my favorite haircare brands, as expensive as it is. It works so well with my hair! I may have to splurge on it.

Pacifica Salt Waves Texture Spray — One of my favorite and affordable hair care products. My hair is still flexible but holds on to the styling fairly well when using this. I look forward to getting this again and again!

Bath & Body

Victoria’s Secret Love Fragrance Lotion — This was either a birthday or christmas gift. It smelled really nice but I wouldn’t purchase this myself.

Victoria’s Secret Mango Temptation Mango & Nectar Hibiscus Fragrance Mist — I loved this fragrance, but this was also a gift and I wouldn’t purchase it on my own. I am going through my stash of fragrances and body sprays to use everything up.

Burt’s Bees Honey & Grapeseed Hand Cream — This was also a gift. I expected to really like it, because all the products I’ve tried from this brand were great, but I don’t know what it was about the texture of this cream, it was very thick and…not grainy but there was something in it that made the cream look almost curdle-like? And as much as I shook the bottle before dispensing, nothing seemed to work, and it would take forever for the cream to absorb into my skin, no matter how little amount I used. It was a disappointment of a product, maybe it was a dud but I don’t recommend it.
