Empties: Hits & Misses
I’m happy to say that this round of Empties were mostly all Hits. Money well spent!
Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm by L’Oreal: A fantastic deep conditioner. It really does what it claims to do. My hair feels super soft and hydrated after using this. It’s also a great buy, usually on offer at drugstores.
Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner by Healthy Sexy Hair: Another great hair product. I can’t get a comb through my hair without a leave-in conditioner so I’ve tried loads. This one doesn’t have a built in heat protectant so I would use it on days when I didn’t use hot tools. Available at Target and Ulta.
Nivea Cream Tin: Super rich and lovely. Available at drugstores for about a dollar.
IPKN New York: I got this sample in a beauty box and was very disappointed that the shade was too dark for me because I absolutely loved the product. Contains ceramide, collagen, and Vitamin E and an SPF 45. Apparently there is gold in it as well. Great BB cream. I received the shade Light and it was too dark. I’ll have to try the their lightest shade which is Fair. Available online.
All About Eyes Serum by Clinique: A wonderful de-puffer. It has a cooling metal roller ball that really wakes you up in the morning, and this little tube lasted for months. Available at Clinique counters.
EYEKO London Black Magic Mascara: Big fan of EYEKO mascaras. All of their brushes are different and I liked this one a lot. Available at Sephora.
PHILOSOPHY Hope In A Jar Night: I’m going to call this night cream a hit because I loved the effect on my skin. It’s a wonderful product chocked full of good skincare ingredients. However, I don’t think I’d purchase because I couldn’t stand the smell. Give it a try next time you’re in a store. If it doesn’t bother you, buy it. It’s good.
Rosa Arctica Eye Cream by Kiehl’s: Awesome eye cream. I noticed a difference with just this small sample. I will definitely buy next time I make a Kiehl’s purchase. Read more about it at Kiehl’s.
Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50: Wow! Another suburb product from one of my all time favorite ranges. This sunscreen has an SPF of 50 yet it’s massively sheer and tinted. Goes on like a dream and works great under make-up. I squeezed every bit out of this tube and will buy the full size. Amazon has the best prices that I’ve found.
Purete Thermale 3-in-1 Calming Cleansing Solution by Vichy: It just didn’t remove all of my mascara and/or eyeliner. If a cleanser doesn’t do that, I can’t be bothered.
Luster Now! Whitening Toothpaste: I liked this just fine but I didn’t notice any whitening. It’s blue which is supposed to bring out white but I was underwhelmed.
