Bye Bye Empties, June 2017

Summer is finally here! I have some travel plans in the next coming months so I’m excited to share posts different from beauty ones soon!

I feel like I did pretty well for June empties. I finished up a good number of products I’ve been wanting to finish.

Skincare Bye Bye Empties June 2017 (6)

I finally finished up my Caudalie Polyphenol Anti Wrinkle Fluid, if you recall in my review I wasn’t the biggest fan of this product because I really didn’t see any difference using it. You might probably guess that I won’t repurchase this. I also used up my Body Shop’s Nutriganics Refreshing Toner. For me this was OK, it felt filmy towards the end. I personally like toners that feel like they deep clean so I won’t be repurchasing this one. Lastly, I used up my Bella Aura Gentle Purifying Cleanser. This was a sample that I received in my January 2017 Topbox. This cleanser is great! It feels really creamy and lathers up nicely. The sample lasted maybe 8 washes but I was being very conservative using only a pea size at a time. Another plus for me is that it removes my makeup without irritating my eyes. I would definitely purchase I full size of this it’s just pretty pricey. I would also be interested in trying more from Bella Aura.

Hair & Body

I finished up my Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner. I enjoy this line because it’s perfect for my dry hair. It helps tame frizz and works great with whatever oil or creams I use afterwards to style. I am picking up this again soon! Another item I finished up is Yves Rocher’s Jardins du Monde Soft Shower Cream in Cotton Flower from India. I have 5 back-ups of these body washes (yes, I counted them) I love so many of these scents and for me I can’t go without them! I like to use them as both body wash and as bubble bath! This scent is one of my favourites, it’s sweet and clean.

Makeup
Bye Bye Empties June 2017 (4)

Some of my makeup items are actually empty and some are just products I think are old and need to be discarded. I’ll start with actual empties. When Joe Fresh first released their line at Shoppers Drug Mart I wanted to try it and started with the illuminating concealer.  I wasn’t the biggest fan of this at first because it’s not full coverage but with a change in foundation I found that this looked nice under my eyes adding a light highlight and woken up look. It looks the best with my Maybelline Fit Me foundation. I wish I took a picture of the applicator because I think it’s a really great design. It was long and flat and the angle was great to apply the concealer directly onto my face. I will likely repurchase this.

I also finished my sample of Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray. I really like this to set my makeup because it helped to blend in any powders and help keep my makeup in place. I will be purchasing the larger size.

This next item in my empties isn’t exactly an empty but an oldie! I’ve had my Too Faced Melted Metal in Melted Candy for way too long and I just wasn’t wearing it. The colour is too bright for everyday and I’m not into super bright lipsticks so this expired before it actually emptied.

The last item is also an oldie which is the Ruby Cosmetics Eyebrow powder. I did a whole review on this product when I first got it here. I pretty much summed it up in my final thoughts about the product, it’s not bad but there are so many brow products on the market I would probably move on to something new. That’s what I ended up doing. I just stopped using this and thought it might be best I just throw it out.

What items have you finished up this month?

Lots of Love,
Dal

  1. Dove is the best shampoo! When I stray from it, I usually notice a difference in my hair! Especially when I go back to it and I wonder why I strayed in the first place! XD

    I’ve always wondered about Joe Fresh cosmetics. You don’t hear much talk about them!

    I emptied an All Nighter travel size last month too! I can’t believe how quickly I went through it. It didn’t even last me a month lol

    • Dove had to always be in my rotation of shampoos. I always grab new shampoos but I know what you mean by noticing a difference when you go back.

      Lol – ya once you start using the all nighter it’s hard to stop. I’m going to finish up my fix + but after I’m replenishing both.

      I’ve tried the eye liner from Joe which I didn’t like, but they have really great blushes. The blush is really soft and creamy with buildable colour. It’s worth trying for sure.
