Product Empties and Review: May - October 2017


I haven't done a product empties post in a long while, so there is a few more items in the hair and body care side than usual, so let's just hop straight to it!


(L to R): Laneige - Deep Pore Cleansing Foam* - This product is a gentle foaming cleanser that works well to erase all traces of make-up. While I do not see a significant improvement in the pore cleansing front, it did work well to cleanse my face and keep any break-outs at bay.

Soft Soap - Fresh Glow Hydrating Body Wash - This product was okay, it cleansed however I felt like there was some residue left on the skin after which I guess made me feel hydrated? but I won't repurchase this.

Bioderma - Photoderm Moisturizing Tanning Spray* - Really enjoyed this product, it gave a nice natural glow without looking orange or streaky. 

Bioderma - Hydrabio Micelle Solution* - This micelle water is still my favorite cleansing water out of everything I've tried. It cleanses all traces of make-up without leaving any residue.

Nip + Fab - Bee Sting Fix Toning Pads* - love this product and will repurchase it! It hydrates the skin, and smoothes fine lines. 

Mizon - Great Pure Cleansing Oil - Gentle + Refreshing* - this was my first oil facial cleanser that I have tried and while I see why people love oil cleansers, I don't think it is for me. I personally like it when the face feels clean after cleansing and then hydrate it with the necessary serums and moisturizers. 

Skyn Iceland - Glacial Face Wash - This product wasn't my favorite, it cleansed the face however I felt no significant difference and the price tag was too high for what was done. I will not be repurchasing this.


Fast Shampoo x 2 - This will forever be a product that I will repurchase. It has helped immensely with hair growth and length and I already have a 1L bottle in my shower.

Herbal Essences - Naked 0% Shine Conditioner - This is a great drugstore conditioner, the fragrance is a bit strong, however it worked well to hydrate the dry ends I get from styling my hair.

Shiseido - Moist Hair Pack Daily Treatment - This is also an on-going repurchased product for me, I have one already as backup in my cabinet. This is a very light-weight conditioner that you only need so little of to keep your hair strands soft and supple. 

Shiseido Tsubaki - Damage Care Conditioner - This is a much richer conditioner that is like a hair mask vs. for daily use. I will not repurchase this product again as I seldomly dye my hair anymore - I used to do it all the time (maybe every month) and straighten and style my hair everyday. As I have cut back on both of those things, as well as having incorporated the Moist Hair Pack Daily Treatment (above), my hair is no longer as dry and hopeless as it used to be. 


Living Proof - Flex Shaping Hairspray - Love this hair spray, as the name suggests it is a flexible spray that holds and styles your hair effectively. Will repurchase for sure!

Sephora - Beauty Amplifier Set and Refresh Spray - This product is pretty good, it sets the make-up however I would like to try other products as well. 

Colab - Sheer Invisible Dry Shampoo* - This product is a bit too strongly fragranced for me, I know it is a favorite for alot of people, however this wasn't for me. My new favorite is the Briogeo Charcoal one or the Amika Dry Shampoo. 

CND - Vinylux Weekly Top Coat* - Great product and works well when I like to use Vinylux polish at home. It seals the polish and really gives it a 7-day no chip result with a high-gloss finish. 

Indie Lee - Blemish Stick - Will continue to repurchase this, I have recommended this to alot of friends and they too really enjoy it. I have written about this product a few times here on the blog. 

Esquido - Companion Long Lasting Bond* - my FAVORITE lash glue adhesive, will continually repurchase this even though I got this for review. You only need the smallest amount but it makes the lashes stay all day without any irritation. Also, because you use such a small amount, your lashes have a longer lifespan and you do not have to wait 20-30 seconds for the glue to become tacky before you apply it like those DUO glues.


Clinique - Pep-Start Quick Cleansing Swipes* - This wipes are great, works well to remove all make-up traces from the face. Will repurchase for sure.

Chella - Eyebrow Color Pencil - I received this product as part of a monthly subscription box a long time ago, and I LOVED this. However, it is such a hard product to repurchase that sadly I cannot obtain it again - it has the right texture and gave a natural brow finish. 

Anastasia Brow Wiz - great product, will continue to repurchase.

Rodial - Liquid Liner* - Really enjoyed this liner, it is matte and opaque and fully pigmented. It does not bleed and works well to create a fine wing liner.

Clio - Waterproof Pen Liner - I love this liner, I will repurchase this over and over and have even purchased this for a friend and she loved it as well. It is so pigmented and opaque and honestly it lasts for months with everyday use. This is my favorite liner! I am now on my third one.

L'Oreal - Infallible Paints Liquid Liner* - This sadly did not work for me, it was not black enough even though it is a true black. It looked a bit dark blue to me and isn't pigmented enough and was patchy. 

Have you tried any of the empties mentioned above? What are some of your product empties that you liked lately?

Until next time, XO - M.
