Empties - beauty products you've used up!
Empties - what beauty products have you used up recently? How did you like it, will you be purchasing it again etc. :flower:
Let me start. :D
Yves Rocher Micellar Cleansing Water: I like it, it was my second bottle. I'm not buying another one, because I got Bioderma's famous Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire. :woot:
LUSH North Pole Soap: My latest obsession, I already got another one. :wub:
Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume leave in conditioner: Can't live without it!
Essence Winter Edition Apple & Cinnamon Punch 24h Hand Protection Balm: I love it! I stock up on it.
Vichy Essentielles face cream for dry skin: My absolute favourite! :heart:
Avene Cleanance K: Good, but won't buy it again, because I prefer Paula's Choice.
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel: Love this stuff!
I've used up the pumpkin face cream I won from one of those magazine giveaways and am about to finish an eye cream and the Jason vitamin E cream, which actually lasted me a long while. I liked everything, even though I don't know how effective the eye cream would be for someone who needs an eye cream that does anything more than give some moisture. If I don't get around to getting the face cream again, I wanted to try either a cleanser or the pumpkin peel from the same brand, which is Mychelle Dermaceuticals.
The one thing I hate about using up products is having to throw the packaging away expecting it to just end up in a landfill.
My empties from November 2012:
Jouer Lip Enhancer Conditioning Lip Treatment -- Love this product. Glossy, hydrating, feels extremely cushiony and luxe on the lips. I already had a back-up ready to go, and I ordered another one from BirchBox using my points. Yay!
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Balm in Waikiki -- A really nice lip balm. Very sheer nudey-orange tint. Smells uniquely minty and feels pleasantly tingly upon application. I often used this as an overnight treatment and would wake up to very soft, hydrated lips. But the packaging is bulky and a bit ugly.
Sonia Kashuk Remove Eye Makeup Remover -- This is my HG. It's gentle, feels like water, and doesn't make my eyes blurry at all. Plus it's cheap, especially compared to Lancome's Bifacil (oily mess tbh). I also love the packaging and the way it looks on my vanity.
Soap and Glory Clean, Girls! Shower Gel -- I've had the giant 500ml/ 16.2oz bottle for a veryyy long time. I enjoyed the musky fruity-floral fragrance through and through, but the shower gel itself didn't seem to do anything particularly noticeable for my skin. I'm proud I finished up the whole thing.
Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation: This foundation is amazing. :heart:
L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Luminizer mascara for hazel eyes: A very nice mascara. I'm a fan of Volume Million Lashes anyway, so this one wasn't going to disappoint.
Tikei Concealer Yellow
This is a mineral concealer/corrector. I use a lot of it because it covers pretty much anything and it also works as a highlighter on me.
I have bought a new one, can't live without it because I have really bad dark circles.
Lancome Effacernes concealer. I'm on my 6th tube and I am done looking for the perfect concealer.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer oil-free formula. I can't live without it.
My Clairins eye gel :shock:
La Roche Posay Effaclar cream cleanser - I love this stuff! Never irritates my skin and cleanses. Already started using my new tube.
They accept plastic and glass cosmetics packaging.
Recycling is one of the reasons I'm brand loyal to MAC--they take back (as you probably already know, but in case anyone doesn't) their plastic packaging, and 6 empties get you a free lipstick, or at the MAC store an eyeshadow or Lipglass (it's only some of the lipglosses, the little ones I think?? it's gotten a bit complex ...)
I have to see where there's one located near me. Maybe I'll finally be able to empty out a drawer.
http://www.ars-cosmetica.com/forum/i...smiley1285.gifThe Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Butter: Best buy from The Body Shop EVER! It might be the best smelling (effective too) thing that The Body Shop sells. Why isn't TBS available in my country? :cry:
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire: I thought this stuff was amazing (though it did irritate my eyes when I was wearing heavy, professionally done smokey eyes).
Untill I discovered Vichy PuretÚ Thermale 3-in-1 Calming Cleansing Solution. :king:
Cowshed Hand Cream. Will be buying this again, so good!
Make up remover from L'occitane. I wasnt that impressed by this product....
Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel - my favourite cleanser, I will probably repurchase this after I finish my Nuxe cleansing gel...
I finished The Body Shop Cranberry Joy shower gel which was a limited edition for Christmas - I liked the smell a lot, but it really doesn't even come close to my Lush shower gels.
Lush Whoosh shower jelly - I love this. Very fresh citrusy smell, and it was perfect when used with my exfoliating gloves. I even used this on my face several times, it made my skin very soft and didn't dry it out.
The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish: I love these shower gels (Strawberry Body Polish is my favourite!), but this scent is just horrible. :ninja: Which is odd, I'd normally choose citrusy scent, but not in this case.
Essie Good to Go: The best top coat I've ever used. Though it thickens up after you use about 2/3 of the bottle.
Balea Soft Íl Balsam: Very nice dry skin relief lotion. It's a real treat to use.
Aussie Mega Shampoo, 500ml - my go-to shampoo, I have repurchased this already
Anatomicals You Need A Bloomin Shower Body Cleanser, 150ml - smells sooo good :heart: I probably will repurchase this later once I get through some of the shower gels that I already own. I don't like the tube packaging though, I found it hard to open...
Lush Twilight shower gel, 250ml - this one was too sweet for me. But my husband loved it and used it up very quickly :p
