Hi guys! It’s been awhile since I’ve done an empties post! I don’t use up products often enough to do monthly posts so I’m going to switch to a quarterly format. Perfect timing since we are wrapping up Q3! So, let’s take a peak at what I’ve used up this past quarter!
BioRepublic | Cucumber Breeze & Pomegrante Crush Sheet Masks
I love using sheet masks, I think they are just so fun to put on and then sneak up on my husband. I didn’t really see a noticeable difference with my skin, but they do feel rather moisturizing. Would I repurchase? Probably not, I’m sure there are better sheet masks out there. I got these in an Ipsy bag, so I enjoyed them but not enough to actually buy them myself.
GlamGlow | YouthCleanse
I got this as a sample at some point from Sephora, so another item that I didn’t actually purchase myself. This was a nice product to use as you apply it like a mask, but then immediately foam up the leftover product on your hand and then massage your skin before rinsing. Would I repurchase? I just can’t bring myself to spend the money on GlamGlow. The full size product is $43.00 CAD, I could buy at least two lipsticks with that! I didn’t see enough of an amazing difference in my skin to justify the cost.
Caudalie | Eau Micellaire
This was the quarter of using up samples! I took this with me on my road trip as micellar water is a part of my daily face cleansing routine. Would I repurchase? Another no! It did a great job so I’m not knocking the product, but I like my Garnier SkinActive Micellar water just as much and it is much less expensive.
Garnier | Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream
When I ran out of my Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Night Cream (which I’ve talked about in previous empties posts), I decided to pick this one up to change things up! Would I repurchase? Hmm… maybe. I think I like the Anti-Wrinkle Firming Night Cream a bit more. Though, to be honest, I didn’t notice much of a difference between them. But, I prefer the scent of the other one.
L’Oreal | Infallible Pro-Matte in Classic Ivory
Another one bites the dust! I’ve talked about this quite a bit in previous empties posts so I won’t go into much detail. Would I repurchase? Yes! I already have actually as this is my favourite matte drugstore foundation!
Urban Decay | Naked Skin Concealer in Light Neutral
This has been my go-to concealer ever since I picked it up! I’ve talked about this a lot in various posts, YouTube videos and favourites posts so I won’t say much about this one either. Would I repurchase? Yes! I already did! I love the formula of this concealer and the shade is absolutely perfect for me! I did also recently pick up the Too Faced Born This Way concealer, and while I’m really loving the formula of it, the lightest shade is a bit too dark for me. It matches my skin but, I prefer a concealer that is a bit lighter so that I can highlight a bit. I do like to mix them though!
Revlon | Dramatic Definition Mascara
I did a full review on this mascara here! Would I repurchase? Yes and I already did! I have given quite a few drugstore mascaras glowing reviews this year but this is the first one that I repurchased. Normally I have an urge to go out and try another new one, but when I was ready to throw this one out, I really felt that I needed another one to replace it!
fave4 | Texture Takeover
I used this quite a bit when my hair was a bit shorter and had more layers to it to add some volume and texture. I got this in a Birchbox quite awhile ago but didn’t really have a use for it until then. Would I repurchase? Hmm, maybe. It worked really well, but I’m sure I could find another texture spray that would work just as well. If I saw this locally I would pick it up though, I just wouldn’t go out of my way to hunt it down.
Curl Keeper | Original
This purchase was inspired by the one and only StashMatters as she has mentioned it quite a few times! I purchased this with my Birchbox points before they left Canada so I just got the travel size. Would I repurchase? Yes! I really enjoyed the way this kept my curls defined but without being frizzy. I am pretty sure I have to order it from Amazon so I haven’t repurchased yet. I’m actually really enjoying another hair product right now that I’ll be posting about later on this week in my September Favourites so keep an eye out for that! But, I think I’ll grab another bottle of this eventually!
Batiste | Dry Shampoo
I’m pretty sure I used up a few of these during the past quarter, I just forgot to keep them. Would I repurchase? Yes, I definitely have a few of these on-hand at all times! I feel like I will always have this product in my empties posts!
So, those were my empties for Q3! Did you finish any amazing or not so amazing products this past month? Let me know in the comments down below!
