November 2017 - February 2018 Empties and Review*

It's been a few months since my last empties post and I'm sharing with you what I've used up the last few months, what I liked and will repurchase and what I wasn't quite a fan of. Pictured below, you will find the items that were used - I have also broken it down into different sub sections for convenience. 

Skin and Hair Products 
1. Fast Conditioner - I really love the Fast Shampoo, I have ordered it repeatedly and have included it in past favorites and empties reviews and I will continue to do so. However, the conditioner I really found nothing too fantastic about it that would make me want to repurchase it. It didn't necessarily hydrate my damaged ends nor did it help with detangling. Therefore I will stick to repurchasing the Shampoo in the 33oz pump bottle.

2. Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Yogurt Body Wash - Great, hydrating body wash with a subtle scent. I would not repurchase this yet only because I constantly want to try more and more products. 

3. The Body Shop - Early-Harvest Raspberry - This I will continue to repurchase because it works great for my eczema prone skin in the winter time!

4. Dial - Miracle Oil (Marula Oil) Body Wash - Love this as well, it is extremely hydrating and smells great, I will most likely repurchase this soon as well. 

Face Products
1. Korres - Greek Yogurt Cleanser - I have been using this cream cleanser throughout my pregnancy and I really enjoy it. It cleanses my face and rids traces of make-up, it hydrates my skin and does not leave behind any residue. I highly recommend this!

2. Rodial - Dragon's Blood Hyaluronic Tonic - I use this as part of my skincare routine after cleansing as well as to set my make-up. It brightens, refreshes and hydrates the skin - I love this alot and will continue to repurchase it!

3. Clinique - 7-Day Scrub Cream - I liked how gritty this exfoliator was, however was not a fan of the scent. I prefer my current drugstore alternative exfoliator to this (sorry!) and will not be repurchasing it. 

Makeup Items
1. Embryolisse - Lait-Creme Concentre - I bought this after seeing PixiWoos rave about it continuously on their channel. I loved it so much, that I rationed it and didn't end up using it all. That's my biggest problem sometimes, that I love something so much that I'm so scared to use it and it ends up going bad. That is exactly what happened to this - I left it for, I'm embarrassed to say, almost 2 years! It is a great primer that is also a moisturizer and leaves your skin plump and hydrated. I will repurchase this for sure. 

2. Smashbox - Liquid Lipstick (Some Nerve) - I have always loved this formulation of Liquid Lipstick, it's probably one of my favorites and recommend it to people who ask me. It is whipped, doesn't settle on fine lines and delivers opaque color with one swipe. 

3. Avon - Liquid Liner - I won't be purchasing this again as it smeared all over my bottom lash line and I looked like a panda by the end of the day 

4. Kat Von D - Liquid Liner - I have repurchased this many time and will continue to do so, it is black, opaque doesn't transfer and stays all day and gives you a great cat eye!

5. Too Faced - Cream Blush (So Peachy) - This cream blush melts like butter onto the face, love it! However, my blush fell right out of the pan and I couldn't rescue it because it just kept falling out. Therefore, though I like it alot, I'm not too sure if I will repurchase this... I mean, it obviously doesn't happen to every single one of them - but I'm just saying I'd like to try other things!

6. Benefit - Gimme Brow - I really like how small this brush is, perfect to grab onto all your short brow hairs! However, I believe this may have been recalled? I don't seem to see it anymore on the site.

Until next time, XO - M.
