Bye Bye Empties, January 2017

There is something really satisfying to me to finish up an item from the vast amount of products I have! What I’ve done below is list the item I’ve emptied, what I thought of it, and whether or not I’d repurchase it.

Let’s start with skincare!

dsc_0075The Body Shop Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash – I bought about 5 of these back in June of 2015! I think I’ve gone through 4 and have one more to use up. I did review these on my blog before here and I still love this wash over any other facial wash I’ve used. It’s very gentle on my skin but still great at removing my makeup really well. I’m repurchasing this for sure!

Yves Rocher Cure Solutions Anti Fatigue 24 HR Vitality Skin Care – I am completely in love with Yves Rocher skincare. I really love using this whenever my skin is extra dry because this is super thick and hydrating. That’s probably why I finished it up this winter. I’m currently awaiting an order of different skincare from Yves Rocher so I won’t be repurchasing this for some time.

Now the makeup items in my photo above are not all empty but they are really old so I must get rid of them.

Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Brigitte – I don’t know what possessed me to pick up this colour back in late 2015. I guess I wanted to go outside my comfort zone with this deep wine. I wore this a few times when I first got it but there were a few things that I ended up not liking about this balm. First, it has a very strong mint scent which really annoyed me. Second, the tube is thick and made applying this colour without a lip brush difficult. Lastly, it didn’t hydrate my lips. I’m getting rid of this now even though it’s not empty because it’s extremely old and I haven’t used it at all in the last year. I won’t be repurchasing this.

Benefit Fake Up Undereye Hydrating Concealer in 01 light – I wasn’t the biggest fan of this concealer when I got it back in 2015 but grew to love it. You can see it as one of my summer face faves here from when this blog was just a little babes. I do currently have about 4 concealers in rotation so I did neglect this a little bit and when I grabbed it to use about a week ago I realized it smelled old and that I should probably throw it out. Currently, I have no plans to repurchase this.

Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof in Blonde Ambition – I’m really impressed with how well the Sephora Collection eyeliner wears! It’s pretty long lasting and glides on so easily. I got this to wear on my waterline but I haven’t worn it in the last 6 month because I don’t gravitate towards lighter liners. I will repurchase this in black.

Lastly, are a few body items I used up.

Yves Rocher 24H Deodorant in Cotton Flower from India – I bought this in July 2016 and used it like crazy over the summer. I love the scent and how it feels on. It does roll on a bit wet at first, especially when the bottle is new, but it soon dries down and I’m left with fresh smelling underarms. I have quite a few different deodorant brands that I’ve opened but I always have one of these available just in case because I know it works really well for me. I already repurchased 2 of these!

Yves Rocher Cranberry & Almond Liquid Hand Soap – I got this in a holiday collection soap set which I shared with my mom. I’ve forgotten what the other scents were but this was my favourite. It was perfect for the holidays and the bottle was small enough that it finished by the time the holidays were over. Unfortunately, I have to wait until next year to repurchase this exact one but during the year I use their Hamamalis super soft hand soap.

Anything you’ve emptied this month?

Lot’s of Luv,

    • Hi! Based on what I know and read they don’t test their products and animals however they do sell their products to China where the Chinese government is allowed to test their products on animals. I know some people don’t agree with that but I’d rather you be informed. I hope that helps!
