Empties: Hits & Misses
There aren’t any “misses” in this round of Empties or Products I’ve used up. That means money well spent!
Sally Hansen Wax Strip Kit Brow/Face/Bikni: Fabulous little home waxing kit. This works. You may still need to tweeze a couple of stubborn hairs but this $6 kit is perfect between salon visits. Pick it up at any drugstore or Ulta.
Clarins Advanced Extra Firming Eye Contour Serum: I’ve been using this product for 7 years regularly. Many products say they reduce puffiness and it seems like less than half actually do. This is one of them. One of my holy grain products. Available at any Clarins counter or Amazon.
Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Hairspray: Great hairspray and you can’t beat the price; about $4.00. I’d definitely buy this again Available at any drugstore.
Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deeeeep Liquid Conditioner: One of the best kept secrets in the shampoo isle. Perfectly deep conditions and detangles for about $3.25 a bottle! I’ve gone through too many of these to count. Available at Target or any drugstore.
Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Cream SPF 15 by Caudalie: A wonderful day cream. I use another sunscreen on top of this because SPF 15 isn’t enough for me if I use it during the day. It’s moisturizing and non-greasy. Caudalie began as a vineyard and their skincare line is infused with ingredients from grapes and vines that support healthy skin. Caudalie rarely disappoints. Their products are wonderful. You can sometimes find discounted Caudalie products at Nordstrom Rack but you can find the full range at Sephora or online.
Neova Silc Sheer Sunscreen SPF 45: This was recommended to me by my aesthetician. It’s a great sunscreen. It’s lightweight, very fluid, tinted and doesn’t seep into the eyes. I’m working through some other sunscreens at the moment but I’ll buy this again. You can find it online at Amazon or Neova.
VITALUMIÈRE AQUA by CHANEL: Probably my all time favorite foundation. It’s great for dry skin. It’s hydrating and wears beautifully. Available at any Chanel counter.
Tea Olive Lime Body Lotion by Caldrea: I included this lotion sample because the smell is incredible. It’s a lovely lotion as well. They make wonderful smelling, earth friendly, housekeeping products as well as bath and body care. Read more about the range or buy here.
