And No, I am not referring to the ridiculous amount of drama going on in the beauty community right now. I am talking about my undramatic empties that I finished lately and want to share with you.
And I reached over 100 empties so far! I am quite happy with that, although I see people who count empties finishing 200-250 products a year, and it looks like I am not even close to that. I was under the impression that I went through products like wildfire, but I guess it’s not that bad after all.
These are the items I’ve finished. The apple is an eye catches isn’t it? We will get to that in a moment!
#106 Yves Rocher Energizing Bath & Shower Gel Lemon Basil – This has such a nice fresh and herbal lemon scent, I sometimes feel like lemon scented products can remind me a bit to much about dish washing soap, but this one has a lovely authentic scent. I am sure I will pick up a new one of these!
#107 Skinfood Truffle Age Defying Cream – This really smells like truffles! It’s a nice rich cream that I’ve been using as my nighttime moisturizer. I think it is a bit too heavy to use for daytime. It gives my skin tons of moisture and I did really like it. I may pick up this one again, but not immediately, partly because I still think I can find something better.
#108 Tolymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream – The packaging is so cute. Yes it’s a bit cheap and childish looking, but I also think it’s kind of cute. Besides not that it’s empty and washed it can double as a toy. I now a 4-year old who loves playing picnic and I think this will be something she would like. I did really like how it worked too. My skin looked so clear and refreshed after using this. And every time I felt a bit grey or dull, I reached for this and put on a mask afterwards and that usually helped a lot. I may pick this one up again soon!
#109 Missha Deep Clear Cleansing Balm – Today is the day for Korean empties I guess! I do love testing out Korean skincare though, because they have so much cheap and good stuff. This was a nice and efficient cleansing balm that did the job very satisfying. A fresh citrus scent match the nice bright orange packaging well. I would not mind buying this one again, but the Heimish one is still my favorite.
#110 L’Oreal True Match Concealer – This was in my project pan 2018, and I am happy to see it empty because it’s been a long road. The shade is slightly too dark so I could only use this a few weeks in summer. Needless to say it’s a few years old and probably past expiration date. The formula was OK, but it didn’t do anything special to me. I have so many others I prefer so I won’t pick up this again.
#111 Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24 H – This one you’ve probably seen a lot because it’s been on the list of products used in a makeup look almost every single time. This is a great great gel liner. It’s very black, applies easy and has great staying power! I will pick up a new for sure, I just have another old one I want to force myself to finish before I pick up a fresh new one of this!
#112 The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2 % – Great skincare at an affordable price. I am all here for it! And The Ordinary really have some great products. I really did like this one too. It’s a nice peel I’ve been using a few times a week before bedtime and it seems to actually be working. I mean, I can feel it working, and it prevents clogged pores. Already got a new one in my bathroom ready to go!
#113 L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara – This is my second tube and it wont be the last. It’s just as good as people say, and I have yet to find another drugstore mascara I like just as much. I haven’t picked up a new one yet but I will, and in the mean time I will be missing it. Great great mascara!
