Hello my lovelies! I hope you love "empties" posts as much as I do, I haven't done one in a while and since I've gathered quite a few empty products I think it was about time to do one! From now on I'll try to not to include as many empties as I used to in previous posts because they are way to long and propably bore you to death. Let's hope I can stick to that promise!
Avene Cleansing Foam: You know that my HG cleanser is the Avene Cleanance cleansing gel, I got this foam to use it mostly in the mornings as I read that it's more gentle. I really liked it, it helps with my oiliness but it didn't do anything different from the Cleanance geland for the amount you get it's more pricey, so I propably won't repurchase it in the future.
Burt's Bees Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream: I got this from Feelunique back in November, and I've already tried the night cream from the same line last year, here's a review on it. It's just a basic day moisturizer but it's amazing if you're having sensitive skin, it calmed mine when I was having itchyness and dehydration but it can be a bit oily, that's why I was using it at night time. Maybe I will repurchase it in the future if I don't find anything similar that it's more available to me. I don't like purchasing skincare products that take 2 weeks to arrive, because many times I run out of a product without realising it so I need to be able to purchase a product that I can get right away.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm: Such an amazing product! I know it's a bit pricey but it took me a whole year to finish it. It melts down literally everything, makeup-wise of course. I was massaging it onto my skin, and then I was taking it off with a hot flannel, so easy to use! I don't know if I'll buy it again it in the future because I do really like the results of the Body Shop's Camomile Cleansing Gel which is half the price but if I ever feel spendy I'll propably repurchase it!
Clinique #2 Clarifying Lotion: I really love this toner, I've been using it for 7 years and I've already repurchase a new one. I don't use it every single day because it can't be drying, I only use it on the days when I'm having break outs, I find that it really helps with pimples.
The Body Shop Body Butters: If you know me long enough you propably already know my love for the body butters from The Body Shop, I managed to finish two the Raspberry and the Honeymania, I really liked them both but they cannot compare to my beloved Shea. I loved the smell of the Raspberry one but I found the texture a bit too thick and sticky while I absolutely loved the lighter texture of the Honeymania but I didn't quite like the sweet-floraly scent.
Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream: I liked this eye cream but I didn't love it. It has quite of a thick consistency but it wasn't hydrated enough, only a few seconds after I applied it my skin was feeling tdry again. A bit pricey but I have to say that it took me a while to finish it, I won't repurchase it again for sure, the A-Derma Rheacalm that I'm using right now is way better and cheaper.
Seventeen The Stylist Mascara: I was using this mascara last summer and I quite liked it, it gave that soft feathery look to my lashes which I loved, I'm not so sure if I'll repurchase it in the future because I like to switch up the mascaras I use all the time. If you want you can read the review I wrote for it here.
Radiant Magna Lash Mascara: I didn't have the time to use this mascara as much as I would want to, only a few weeks after I bought it I had to stopped using it because of an eye infection I had and propably the reason of that infection was that mascara. I loved the results it gave, huge, curled, dramatic lashes but the application was a nightmare! It has a humongous brush that I kept poking my eye with it and propably that's how my eye got infected that time. My eye area was a mess, mascara everywhere, maybe the problem is that I have small eyes, I'm not going to repurchase it again.
Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical: This was my first dry shampoo, I got it a long time ago when I visited London, I thought that I would like it but I didn't, it didn't help with my oily hair at all. Right now I use the Klorane one and it's amazing, that's why I would never repurchase a Batiste dry shampoo again, but I have to say that the smell of this Tropical one is amazing, it smells like coconut and summer!
St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub: Another product that I purchased when I was in the UK, but this one I actually liked! It's exactly what I'm looking for in a face scrub, creamy but non-foaming with apricot bits. Too bad I can't repurchase it as it's not available in Greece, but if I could this would be my HG face scrub, I loved it almost as much I loved my beloved but discontinued Korres Pomegranate.
Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara: Yep I know, another mascara! This one is one of Essence's most popular mascaras and I know you're going to hate for what I'm about to say, but I didn't love it! I had the exact same problem I had with the Radiant one, the brush was way to big for my eyes and it was very dry. You can find my review on it here.
Mac Prep & Prime Highlighter in Bright Forecast: Oh My, how I loved this concealer! Even though it's targeting as a highlighter I was using it on it's own, without a concealer and it did an amazing job. It acts like a corrector for dark circles, it has a peachy shade that cancels all the brown pigmentation under my eyes, I only wish it was a bit brightening but maybe the other 2 shades in this line are more brightening for lighter skins like mine. Will I repurchase it again? Maybe yes, maybe no, actually I'm torn because even though I love it so much it's quite expensive and it lasted me only 4 months, and for the record I wasn't using it everyday. The Sephora Smoothing & Brightening concealer, which I mentioned in a previous post here, is a very good dupe so I may return to that one instead.
Have you tried any of these products? Did you like them or you were dissapointed? Let me know!
