Some September Empties!

I hate shopping for clothes; online or in store, it doesn’t matter. It is boring, I don’t understand trends and if it doesn’t come in black then I am not interested. I have been on the hunt for a black and white striped shirt for-ever and finally thought I had found one, I ordered, it arrives and I whip it out of the box, put it on – it’s a crop top. It looked like a regular top online though, brands need to add scale photos to their product shots to assist people like myself. I could probably wear it with that sequin skirt that I have yet to wear that was another online shopping misadventure.

I have a few empties this month, mostly skincare and I didn’t finish the foundations that I had wanted to – better luck next month.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream – This is my favourite day time moisturizer and I purchased the giant tub for the winter season that is fast approaching. Also, they had a special edition tub and a portion of the proceeds go to Autism Speaks which is something that I support. I will post some pictures in another post, the design is very cool and colourful.

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Ultimate Hyrdo Gel – This was just a sample and I used it up when I was in between products. It smells really fresh and lemony, it does provide plenty of moisture but didn’t wow me enough to want a full-size.

Farmacy Eyedew – I like this eye cream but I don’t love it, I find it a bit light and my eyes look dry by the end of the day. Also, the package is hard to work with and I never manage to get all of the cream out.

MAC Prep & Prime Fix+ – I don’t get this product. I had never tried MAC before and figured that I would choose a product that everyone raves about and chose this, I just don’t get it. I don’t think that this spray performed any better or worse than any other spray that I have tried. The sprayer wasn’t my favourite, it did smell nice but I definitely do not see the hype.

Mario Badescu Rosewater Facial Spray – I probably use a bottle a month, already repurchased. This is my go-to face spray, whether I am just using it as skincare in the evening or using it as a setting product – I love it.

Palmer’s Cleansing Oil – I love this cleansing oil, it is incredibly effective at removing makeup and leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. I have transitioned back to the Kiehl’s for winter use, pretty much my whole skincare routine is dominated by this brand but I do enjoy this cleanser and it is such a steal.

Yes To Tomatoes Charcoal Wipes – I always have these on hand, love ’em.

Bioderma Purifying Micellar Water – This stuff burns the shit out of my eyes, I could stop rubbing it in my eyes but that isn’t going to happen. I have loads of micellar waters that don’t bother my eyes, this one is great at removing makeup and I like it but I don’t think this will be a repurchase – love Bioderma though.

Not bad, mostly skincare again but I am still working on my makeup stash. Also, it has been rainy and overcast so I had to improvise with my photo location. Mer, mer.

Thanks for stopping by ❤

    • The cream is pretty heavy, I have pretty dry skin – they do also make a lotion in this line that I use in the summer though that isn’t as heavy. No, I have not tried that one – I do love Bioderma, I will have to check it out!
