Sharing me recent beauty empties and my thoughts on whether or not I recommend these products.
These empties posts don’t happen often but when they do they’re fun to put together! I like reviewing why I would repurchase, or not, a product because it gives me a sense of what I’m looking for in my skincare and hair care. The older I get, the more cutthroat I am about my products. Only the best survive!
Recent Beauty Empties
Living proof Curl Defining Gel – I was on the hunt for a gel that I liked for a very long time so when Living proof came out with curl products, I know I had to get on it. I love this gel; it holds and doesn’t have a major cast. Verdict: definitely repurchasing
Bliss Clarifying Gel Cleanser – I love how gentle this cleanser is and it does a great job at really cleaning my skin. Verdict: Repurchasing
Cosmedix Detox Activated Charcoal Mask – I was surprised how much I liked this mask. I’m iffy about charcoal masks but this one really pulls the gunk in my skin. Verdict: Repurchasing
Olay Regenerist Sunscreen Moisturizer – I liked this cleanser a lot, I had two tubs in my empties bag. Unfortunately, I started using a super goop one that I really like that’s replaced this. Verdict: Recommend
Fente Beauty Pro Filt’r – I thought this primer was just okay. I used it till the last drop but it didn’t wow me. Verdict: Pass
Sunday Riley CEO Vitamin C Cream – This is a holy grail product for me. Whenever Sephora runs a sale, I stock up. I think I’ve noticed my fine lines look less crinkly. Verdict: definitely recommend
Oribe Priming Lotion Leave-In Conditioner Detangler – I’m really picky about the products I use, especially with my curly hair. I wasn’t a fan of this, specifically because it didn’t really detangle my hair. Verdict: Pass
QMS – Intense Eye Care – Another product I thought was just meh. I have other eye creams I prefer; this was lackluster for me. Verdict: Pass
Tula Eye Serum – Unlike the product above, I really like this eye cream. It’s moisturizing and can apply day or night. Personally, I am finishing up my small arsenal of eye creams but once I do, I’m repurchasing. Verdict: Recommend
Beautycounter Overnight Resurfacing Peel – I really love this product. I immediately feel the difference the next morning. My skin feels baby soft and more supple. Verdict: Repurchasing
Dr. Brandt Retinol Eye Cream – Another product I really like, especially because it’s a retinol product which is always great for the skin. Verdict: Recommend
Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment – Another product I wait till it goes on sale but it’s always totally worth it. My skin feels hella nice the next day. I had two of these in my empties bag. Verdict: Repurchasing
Carol’s Daughter Wash Day Delight Shampoo – I’ve repurchased this time and time again. It’s especially great when I have my braids in. My scalp always feels squeaky clean. Verdict: Recommend
Tula Deep Wrinkle Serum – I liked this product for the most part. It’s not that I don’t recommend it I just have other products I like more. Verdict: Pass
Elemis Superfood Vital Veggie Mask – I love this product. I believe this is a clean product and I just love how it makes my skin feel after application. Verdict: Repurchasing
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid – I love The Ordinary products. They are effective and they are affordable. Verdict: Recommend
Tula 24-7 Moisturizer – Another product I liked this product for the most part. It’s not that I don’t recommend it I just have other products I like more. Verdict: Pass
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate – This is another holy grail product. I will buy this time and time again, no question. I love how glowy my skin feel after I apply at night and the next day my skin looks baby soft. Verdict: Definitely Recommend
Biossance Balancing Oil – This was a nice replacement to the Kiehl’s product mentioned above. It’s a nice to have but not necessarily have to have. I do recommend, however. Verdict: Recommend
The Mane Choice Hair Growth Oil – I love this product! I know for a fact that I’ve seen hair growth since I’ve started using this product. Verdict: Repurchasing.
Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Night Cream – Yet another product necessary in my arsenal. This leaves your skin feeling AMAZING. And the scent is very pleasant. Verdict: Repurchasing.
Sunday Riley A + Retinoid Serum – Goodness, do I have too many products that are holy grail. Well, I don’t care. I love this retinoid cream and my skin instantly look better with less fine lines when I use this enough during the week. Verdict: Repurchasing.
