Monthly Empties: November 2017

My long awaited N O V E M B E R empties. Sorry, I’m five days late it’s finals week and I finished my last final today so I’m thrilled because that means it’s winter break! I have more time to post on Instagram and on this website posting empties, favorites, hauls, and reviews ☺️ but also focus on grad applications to pursue my masters degree.

1. Thayers witch hazel in rose petal my very first toner I ever tried in my life actually and it’s amazing. It makes my skin feel nice and hydrate my dry patches on my face and on top of that it smells like roses and I enjoy the scent. I went ahead and repurchased it in the full size already and is using it still but once I run out I want to try other toners out there in the market.❤️

2. First aid beauty facial radiance pads believe it or not it was my first cotton pad exfoliating product I used as well. I generally use this in the morning after cleansing and it woke me up in the morning because it smells nice and it’s cooling to the skin. My skin texture has gotten a lot smoother using this and my blackheads are literally almost gone but at the same time I don’t have much blackheads compared to other people. I will definitely repurchase this after I finish up my other exfoliant products. ❤️

3.Murad rapid age spot and pigment lightening serum, a deluxe sample size I received from a gift with purchase at Ulta. It’s honestly nice and I did notice that it brighten my skin and lighten my dark spots. However, I didn’t enjoy the sticky feeling I would get after application. I don’t think I would be repurchasing this anytime soon. 🙄

4. Murad hydro-dynamic ultimate moisture, again a deluxe sample I received from Ulta. I loved using this especially at night because I felt like it locked in the moisture and kept my skin hydrated throughout the night. The only down side is that it’s quite expensive but I think it’s worthwhile because you only need a tiny amount of this. I will repurchase after I finish up my other moisturizers. ❤️

5. Too faced better than sex mascara original deluxe and full size product. My first mascara that wasn’t runny after a long day of wearing. I used it up but I felt like it clumped my lashes together and I would find myself trying to separate it with a lash comb. It does give it volume but not the way I wanted it to be. I don’t think I’ll repurchasing this anytime soon as I found a better mascara that gives me the volume and length I want in a mascara.🙄

6. Purlisse blue lotus seed mud mask and exfoliant, a deluxe sample I received from my ipsy bag. I love that it’s not tightening on the skin to the point I can’t move my face and I also love that it goes on easily and it smells wonderful. One of my favorite mud mask I have ever tried. I will definitely repurchase once I go through my stash of masks. ❤️

Monthly Empties: October 2017

My first O C T O B E R empties!
I’m excited to start sharing beauty and skincare products that I finish at the end of each month and I hope that you guys enjoy my mini review on the products.

1. First Aid Beauty ultra repair cream intense hydration is my absolute favorite cream because my skin gets extremely dry during the cold winter months and this product keeps my skin hydrated and glowing. I already repurchased this product every time the product runs out. Not only that but my boyfriend loves it too! ❤️

2. Neogen milk to foam coconut milk pure mild cleanser, a deluxe sample size that I received from ipsy and it smells great and I love that it foams up and completely takes off my makeup. I would purchase this in the full size but I want to go through all my other deluxe samples/full size cleansers first before buying another. ❤️

3. Tarte rainforest of the sea deep dive cleansing gel, a deluxe sample size that I also received from ipsy a while ago, I didn’t really enjoy this cleansing gel because of the smell and I’m not sure if that’s because I didn’t use it right away or it gone bad not sure but I do know that it did an okay job at removing my makeup like any other gel out there. I don’t see myself purchasing this. 👎🏻

4. Urban Decay all nighter spray, a deluxe sample size I received from a purchase I bought from Ulta it keeps my makeup lasting all day and keeps my dry skin hydrated. I will definitely repurchase this in the full size the next time I go to ulta for sure! ❤️

5. Becca first light filter face primer, a deluxe sample size which I also received with my purchase from Ulta. I was super excited to try this because it’s suppose to be hydrating and naturally I have dry skin but I felt like this didn’t really do anything for my skin. I wasn’t a big fan of the smell either. I don’t see myself purchasing this because I feel like there are other great primers out there than this so it’s unfortunately a no for me. 👎🏻
