Empties #1

For those of you who are not familiar with with “Empties” are, they are the products that have been used up. In beauty blogging world, this constitutes as a perfect opportunity to share our honest and sincere opinions about products because we have used up the product completely. I’ve been saving these empty containers for quite some time so I’ve been looking forward to sharing my empties with you.

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser: I’ve raved and raved about this skincare line for quite some time, but this cleanser is truly a life saver. If you were to buy ONE skincare product, it would need to be this cleanser.

Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder: I’ve hit serious pan on this mainly because it was one of my favorite products back in the day. Now and then, I’ll use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and polish off my look with this powder, but it’s not my go-to any longer because I’ve found new favorites that are better quality and more reasonably priced.

Benefit Coralista: This has been a staple product in my makeup collection for years. It’s the most beautiful, rosy peach blush I’ve ever set my eyes on!

3-in-1 Beauty Smoothie in Dragonfruit Frappe: My boyfriend had this product and I inherited the bottle. I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing just because it smells a bit too fruity for me. It can be used as a shampoo, conditioner and body wash- I typically used it as a body wash. I didn’t feel that it was extremely moisturizing or effective so it was not my favorite.

Sensodyne: This is the only toothpaste I use because  my teeth are extremely sensitive. By extremely sensitive, I mean that my teeth hurt with cold water and hot soup on a regular basis with no cavities. I find that those overly minty toothpastes are quite harsh and make my teeth more sensitive for longer periods of time after use. Therefore, I always opt for Sensodyne.

L’Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Lumi Highlighter/Concealer: The Lumi highlighter and concealer are two very good products (I’ve mentioned them in the past as well.) They brighten and conceal well. If you’re looking for a new drugstore concealer or a great drugstore under-eye highlighter, I recommend picking up these two. At Ulta, you can typically find L’Oreal products part of a promotion (buy 2, get 1 free for instance.) I have already repurchased both of these and am using up the next tubes of them!

Body Shop Coconut Body Butter: I purchased a travel size body butter to ease myself into the Body Shop.  Low and behold, I fell in love. I’ve already repurchased a full-size coconut body butter (among other things- see my mini haul here) because I love this scent and the moisture that comes with all of their products.

Essence of Beauty Citrus Coconut Fine Fragrance Body Mist: I purchased this little guy on a trip to Vegas last year because I had forgotten all of my travel-size perfumes. It was such a wonderful option and I was very happy with the scent and wear. If you’re looking for an affordable travel body spray, I definitely recommend this product.

No. 7 Normal/Oily and Normal/Dry Night Creams: My boyfriend leans towards the Normal/Oily cream and I lean towards the Normal/Dry. However, I tend to mix and match because some days my skin feels very dry and other days it’s overly oily. It’s a tough guessing game, but I do my best to pin-point which night cream would be better for my skin that particular evening. Overall, this line of moisturizers and skincare is phenomenal because of its gentle, yet extremely moisturizing power.

Have you tried any of these products before? What empties do you have?

I only use Sensodyne too! Also, I have used the First Aid beauty face wash too and also love it, but my favorite FAVORITE thing probably in the world actually is their repair cream. I have the absolute driest hands and it works better than anything else I have ever used. I highly reccomend it to anyone with dry skin!

Their repair cream is definitely amazing, especially for the cold winter months ahead!
