Bye Bye Empties, July 2017

July has been such an amazing month! I was guest again on Beauty Podcast with Cat which is always fun! If you haven’t had a chance to listen you can find all the links in my post here. I also travelled to Las Vegas for a bachelorette weekend which I shared a bit of on my instagram. Lastly, I was invited the Estee Lauder Fall Preview, you can read that post here.

I’m looking forward to August! I have more travel plans and looking forward to more summer fun!

I used up my Sephora Rose Cleansing Wipes soon after I did my post on my Night Time Routine. These wipes were OK. Although they worked for removing face makeup, I couldn’t use it around my eyes which is really important to me so I won’t be repurchasing them. I also finished my bottle of Nivea’s 3 in 1 Micellar Water. I received this product through to try and review and I thought it was quite nice! It removed all of my makeup including any waterproof mascara or eyeliner easily. I would definitely repurchase this.
Empties_July 2017_LBL (2)I received this Pur-Lisse Face Mask from my May 2107 Topbox and I was really excited to give it a try. The packaging reads that this is intensely moisturizing but after trying it my skin felt tight and dehydrated. I don’t think I would purchase this product. The next mask I used was the Green Tea Mask from the The Face Shop. This mask is meant to purify the skin. After use I had really nice clean skin that felt really clear. I can’t ever go wrong with the Face Shop masks, they are reasonably priced and work really well for me.

Body Care

I go through my Yves Rocher Body Wash pretty quickly. It’s because I also like to use them for bubble baths too. This one has a very nice minty/tea scent which I enjoy because it just smells clean. I also finished up my Bath and Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap in Turquiose Waters. Anything from Bath and Body Works that has any beach theme is a scent I tend to enjoy most. Again, they just smell clean and fresh and are usually not crazy strong. I will be repurchasing both of these items although currently I’ve bought a 1 litre bottle of refillable hand soap so it may be a while before I get another body shop soap! LOL!

Hair Care

I’ve had this N4 Lumiere d’hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect spray for such a long time. I got it in my January 2016 Birchbox (oh Birchbox, why won’t you come back to Canada!!). I wasn’t a fan of any of the products I tried from this brand and this leave-in conditioner wasn’t much different. I really wanted to like it because it claimed to be good to de-tangle the hair as well has providing UV and colour protection. I never really had a chance to really test any of this out because I just got lazy to use it and eventually it started to smell REALLY bad! I won’t be purchasing a full size of this.

There you have it! All the items I managed to finish up.

What have you used up lately? Have you tried any of the items I’ve listed above?

Lots of Love,

  1. I like my face wipes to be usable on the eyes, as well. I tend to get micellar wipes because they can be used for the eyes! But it’s surprising how few options there are for micellar wipes. I spent so much time in the store a few weeks ago looking for some because they were out of the Simple brand. I only found one – Garnier.

    That’s too bad the Pur-lisse mask didn’t work for you! They are one of my favourite masks but I have more oily skin so maybe that’s why. I love the Face Shop masks as well, especially those ones in the brown packages. I find them to be really good!

    I had that N4 product as well from Birchbox! I always take forever to get through hair products but I hated using that stuff. It really did have a terrible smell lol.


    • I have the Garnier Micellar wipes but I haven’t tried them yet. Yeah, I’m a micellar water lover too so I’m always surprised their aren’t that many wipes out there.

      Ya, I was pretty bummed about the Pur-Lisse mask because I had such high hopes for it working for me. Oh well, luckily it was from Topbox so I got to try it and now I know it doesn’t really work for me. Luckily there are tons of masks out there make for dry skin so I always have something that will work for me. The Face Shop masks are the best!

      AND OMG DO THE N4 ITEMS SMELL! haha! thank goodness I’m not the only person who feels that way!


      • The Garnier ones aren’t bad! I do prefer the Simple micellar wipes because I find the Garnier to have a bit of a smell, and they don’t seem to remove my makeup as smoothly but if it’s my only option, I’d get them again lol.

        Yep not every product can work for everyone! That’s why subs are so great! ❤
