Well what do you know! It’s 2019! My December empties include not only items that I used up but I’ve also included some items here that I actually haven’t used all year and I figured why not just toss them out! No use keeping something that I’m not using or enjoying.
If you read my post on my 2019 goals, you’ll know that I’m on a no-buy for this year. I still will mention below whether I would repurchase an item or not, but it’s more to just note whether I enjoyed the item enough that I would repurchase it, not that I actually will this year.
Ole Henrikson The Clean Truth Foaming Cleanser and The Truth Serum. I dedicated a full review to both these products in my post Ole Henrikson Skincare Review. I would definitely repurchase the Truth Serum, but I find I have foaming cleansers I like better than the The Clean Truth Foaming Cleanser so I won’t be repurchasing that.
CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops in Radiance. I love this little mini. The radiance drops are great for me because they help my skin glow under makeup. The full size of this is pretty expense so I won’t be repurchasing this.
Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Face Mask. I think this is the second or third mask I’ve used up. I really enjoy it because it is super hydrating. I would repurchase this.
Neutrogena’s All-in-One Make-Up Wipes. This has made it into my empties stash again. I love using these wipes to remove any left over makeup after I wash my face. Currently, I’m working through other makeup wipes so I won’t be repurchasing these.
Body and Hair Care
Yves Rocher’s Jardin du Monde Soft Shower Cream. Another item that has made it into my empties again! I love the Cotton Flower from India scent. I think I might still have some other body washes from Yves Rocher that I’m making my way through.
Professional Sebastian Shaper Plus Extra Hold Hairspray. This came in my November 2017 Topbox and then it was in my favourites from the boxes post a few months later. I really like this hairspray but the nozzle stopped working and I can feel a lot of product in it. I’m pretty disappointed with that so I won’t be repurchasing this.
Covergirl BB Cream Tinted Moisturizer. I shared a review of this when I shared a post on the BB Creams I have here. I love wearing this with my foundation to help sheer it out or on it’s own. I don’t use it too often anymore so I won’t be repurchasing this.
Tarte Rainforest Of the Sea Foundation. I shared a review of this in my One Look, One Week of Reviews. I like this formula and the shade matches my skin tone. I have so many foundations to get through that I’m not going to repurchase.
Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer. This is probably one of my favourite concealers from the drugstore. Whenever they go on sale I’ll pick up two of these. The formula lasts a long time on me and it blends so well under my eyes providing a good amount of coverage without looking too heavy. I have a back-up of this in my collection.
MAC Prep & Prime Skin Base. I received this little sample with a MAC purchase I made at the beginning of the year. I realize that when it comes to primer, I much prefer ones that are hydrating or provide a glow rather than a pore filling one like this one. It’s not bad and I used it a few times, but I think I’ll just toss it since I haven’t used it in the last 6 months.
Benefit Air Patrol Eye Primer. I received this in my Topbox and shared it in a Favourites post in September 2016. I have been using this on and off and I do like the formula but since I usually just wear concealer as a base for eye-shadow I don’t use eye primer as often. When I do use eye primer it’s usually my Urban Decay Primer Potion or the Too Faced Glitter Primer. This is almost empty anyway (and I’ve owned it for two years now) so I’m going to toss it!
Eyeko Fat Eye Stick. This isn’t terrible but I don’t wear it. I usually just reach for a standard eye pencil so I might as well just toss this as well.
Peony Shadow Trio and Elf Blush and Bronzer duo. More products I’m going to just trash my collection since I haven’t been using them at all. The eye shadow trio are just not colours I’m ever tempted to wear and the Elf Blush/Bronzer is too glittery for my liking.
Tarte Cosmetics Mineral Bronzer Park Avenue Princess. I got this a lonnngggg time ago when I used to subscribe to Ipsy. This has gotten some really good use and although I have just a little bit of product left I decided I would just remove it from my collection because I have so many bronzers right now.
Well that is everything I used up in December or decided to throw out for the end of 2018!
What items are in your empties for December?
Lots of Love,
