Empties #12

It’s only been a month since my last empties…I’m burning through things quickly! Like last month’s I’ll keep this one short and just hit the highlights, along with one giant fail.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Intense Moisture Serum: I am so in love with this serum! It disappeared for awhile and I was so thrilled when it came back (they just redid the packaging). It adds an extra boost of lightweight moisture, making it the perfect addition to your skincare routine or prepping the skin before makeup.

e.l.f. Cleansing Cloths: These makeup wipes have truly changed the game for me. I have never been a fan of makeup wipes – most are either scratchy, irritating or don’t actually take enough makeup off to make it worth my while. These are the opposite of all of my previous complaints with makeup wipes.

Redken Blonde Idol Shampoo: This shampoo makes your hair so soft that you can skip on the conditioner if you really want. It makes a great lather and smells amazing. My only problem with it is that the slight purple tint isn’t enough to really counteract any brassiness that comes through, so you’ll need something more potent if you’re trying to keep your hair cool.

Pacifica Dreamy Youth Day & Night Face Cream: I used this moisturizer on vacation and it kept reminding me of another skincare scent I used to use. I couldn’t pinpoint it until I read “floral stem cells” on the packaging. Immediately I knew it smelled like Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream. If you want the luxury of rose without the crazy price tag, this Pacifica moisturizer is for you.

e.l.f. Beautifully Precise Sponge Trio: NOPE! These sponges are absolutely terrible. I feel so bad saying that, but they are. Despite being extremely hard, they still manage to absorb all of your product and remove it from the skin, leaving you without anything to blend. Just go for the Real Techniques sponges and you’ll be fine.

If you have any questions on some of the other products you see above, let me know in the comments down below!
