I am posting my empties a little early this month because I only have a few days until Blogmas starts, yes, I have decided to go ahead and do them. I did snag a Charlotte Tilbury advent calendar, I will post Blogmas related content for 12 days and the advent calendar for the other 12 in an every other day rotation so stay tuned! Also, I am not posting favourites this month because I am really just trying to reduce my stash and slogging through even the stuff I hate – it’s been fun and I didn’t try a ton of new stuff this month because I was saving to treat myself on some Charlotte Tilbury and boy, did I. To the empties!
Burt’s Bees Rejuvenating Eye Masks – I purchased these on whim when I saw their new display at CVS – holy eye irritation. These are obviously drenched in essential oils, very heavily scented and irritated my eye area. Needless to say, these will not be a repurchase.
I use the Yes To Tomatoes charcoal wipes everyday and will be repurchasing, I will wait to purchase another package of the Almay Hydrating Towlettes, they weren’t really anything special.
TooFaced 3-in-1 Spray will not be a repurchase, it smells heavenly but it’s really sticky and I can feel it on my face, I also think it was causing some minor breakouts.
Michael Todd Blue Green Algae Toner, I already had a back-up of this toner, it is very effective and feels great. Of course I will be repurchasing the Mario Badescu Facial Spray – it comes in a bigger bottle now too!
These pixi Glow Peel Pads are really awesome, these are the ones that I chose not to repurchase and went with the Revitalift instead which I am kinda’ kicking myself over. The pur-lisse was a sample and for all of the amazing claims that it had, it was much like any other clay mask that I have tried – not worth for a full-size.
I already have another Cold Cream on hand and the tatcha Camellia Cleanser is a pass – it’s just an oil cleanser and way overpriced for what it is. I also found it to be much thinner than my favourite oil cleansers and I was probably using way too much so I blew through this bottle.
The tarte Lash Primer is definitely my favourite primer for lashes but I have two open tubes of other brands and will not be repurchasing this one right away.
For being paraben, sulfate and dye-free, this shampoo smells incredibly artificial and will not be a repurchase. The LivingProof Mask Treatment was another sample, I didn’t find it to be anything special and wouldn’t purchase a full-size.
The same thing with this Blow Dry Accelerator, these products just stink and this one lingers all day since you are supposed to leave it on your hair. Unfortunately, I purchased this on BOGO and have an entire bottle to use up.
That’s it for empties this month, not terrible but no makeup in sight!
Thanks for stopping by <3
