My Recent Round of Empties
It's A 10's Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin: This is guy is a lil pricey at $40 but I've gone through three bottles so far and I really am seeing a difference in the health of my hair. My hair has signs of color damage and this leave in serum has maintained the health of it. You can read more details here. I've already repurchased and halfway through the bottle.
L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation in 104: I switch between shades 104 and 105 but this is my holy grail drug store foundation. Realistically, nobody has the money to use $50 high end foundation everyday (I certainly don't) so this L'Oréal is my go-to everyday foundation. I go through tubes and tubes of this guy and it's very on par with high end products and it lasts throughout the day. It doesn't last the entire 24 hours but I've gone through 12 hour work days with minimal touch-ups. You can go into a more detailed post here and here.
Replacement Facial Brush Head for Acne and Luxe Facial Brush Head: I replace my Clarisonic head every three months and I will have to say I enjoyed the Luxe brush head more than the Acne one. The Acne brush head was tougher on the skin vs the Luxe brush that had way softer bristles. I'm obsessed with the Clarisonic cleanser and it's important to change the brush heads as there eventually will be buildup.
boscia Luminizing Black Mask: I absolutely LOVE this one because it's basically a nose strip for your entire face to remove impurities. I have a blog post dedicated to it, which you can read more about here. I'm not repurchasing just yet because I want to go through my current line up of masks but just know this is def a holy grail!
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads: I went through the 60 pad product (there is a 28 size) and saw a lot of improvement in my skin texture and dullness. I used it once in the morning and evening so it lasted me a month. I recommend using it consistently when you start to see real results. Using it once on a blue moon will result in slow results. I don't have current plans of repurchasing but a lot og bloggers rave about these pads and they were wonderful. I'm just currently trying to get through my SKII Facial Essence.
CLINIQUE Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion and the Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam: This is a great duo for those with acne prone skin or fighting acne. My impression of the CLINIQUE brand is the stuff your Mom introduces you to when she first starts you on a skincare regimen. These two products were one the first I started with during my pre-teens and I decided to revisit since I began to experience adult acne and it was great. I'm all cleared up and high recommend!
Neutrogena's Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes: I buy these babies in bulk at Costco because I use 1-2 wipes daily and it works wonders! There was a couple of months where Costco stopped selling it and I was devastated because you end up saving a ton. You can read more about it here because I love these wipes SO much.
LUSH's Mask of Magnaminty: I scrubbed through my old posts and I'm surprised I haven't blogged about this guy on it's own since I go through tubs of this mask. It has a soothing and tingly feeling when applied to your skin and leaves you feeling refreshed and moisturized like no other when you rinse the mask off. It dries onto you skin and I personally leave it on for 30-45 minutes but LUSH says 15. I'm a huge fan of Lush and absolutely love this one! One thing to note is it does expire so you need to keep up with that date.
The Face Shop's Escargot 24K Gold Cleanser: I bought this cleanser at the Face Shop in Hawaii a while back so I'm not sure if they still sale it. There was a phase maybe a year ago where snail slime was the biggest hit in skincare formulas. The cleanser smells great and the formula wasn't slimy at all. It really helped with hyperpigmentation but I don't plan to repurchase since I'm addicted to Murad's Acne Cleanser as of lately.
If you've made it to the end of this post, I applaud you as there was a ton of empties to quickly chat through.
