May Empties!

Hey everyone!
Lets talk empties; the products I finished up in the month of May. I love these kinds of posts because 1) you know you're getting a good review of a product when the person has completely used it up and 2) there's just something so satisfying about a fully used up product, isn't there?

I didn't finish too many products this month, but I'm still pretty pleased about what I did use up.

-Benefit 'Porefessional' Primer (small/deluxe sample size)
This primer was just okay for me, and I likely won't repurchase it. I'm someone who enjoys more hydrating primers, so this sillicone feeling type of primer isn't always my cup of tea.

-Essence Lash Princess Mascara
Ugh, I love this stuff so much. How can a product so damn affordable be this good? I already repurchased this!

-Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner
This was a decent brow pencil. Definitely a really good affordable option if you don't want to spend a fortune on brow products (ABH Brow Wiz, why must you hurt my wallet so?)

-L'Oreal Youth Code Skin Recharger Day/Night Cream
I was surprised at how much I adored this face cream. It had a cream texture but absorbed like a gel. Really refreshing to use and hydrating without being greasy. A really solid drugstore choice.

-Olay Fresh Effects 'Out of this Swirled' Exfoliator
Still confused as to if this line is still around/for sale (??) but I loved this. It can be a bit drying, so pair with a good moisturizer, but it exfoliated well and leaves you skin feeling very refreshed and cool.

It's time for another empties roundup! I haven't used up too many products in the past little while, so I may start doing these posts on a quarterly basis, however I do have a TON of samples I need to test out, so let me know if you'd like to see me do a big review of samples I try!

Lets get into it!

Rimmel 'Stay Matte' Pressed Powder: It took me ages to get through this powder, but I can honestly say its one of the best I've ever used. It's super afforable and keeps your makeup matte and in place all day.

Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara: It seems I always have one of these in my empties posts, likely because it's my holy grail mascara. I've done a full review on this mascara in the past, you can read that here, but in brief, it lengthens, volumizes, and makes my lashes look unlike anything any other mascara can do.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: I have a full review of this mascara on my blog as well, which you can read here, but once again, this mascara is one of the better ones at the drugstore. If you want long, voluminous lashes, this will definitely do the trick.

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Line (samples): I was sent samples of the full Arbonne RE9 Advanced Line to review (which you can read here), and I was pretty pleased overall! They each did something specific for my skin and I did notice a difference after using them.

Degree Motionsense Deodorant in 'Berry Cool': I normally don't mention deodorants in my empties, but I wanted to mention this one because I'm so in love with the scent. It's a super refreshing berry scent that I cannot get enough of!

Aveeno Eczema Care Hand Cream: If you've read my blog for a while, you know that I go through about a tube of this a month. It's my absolute favourite hand cream to soothe eczema.

Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel Cream: I finished this up early on last month. It's a great, lightweight moisturizer that I adore in the warmer months. I probably wont repurchase this until the Spring, but it's still amazing nonetheless.

Hope you're all having a wonderful day!

PRODUCT EMPTIES!! : Review & Would I Repurchase?

Hi everyone! I don't normally do empties posts, mostly because I'm really bad at thinking to keep them before I just toss them in the trash, but I somehow managed to gather a few things this month and I figured I'd talk about them and whether I'd repurchase them or not.

L'Oreal Color Radiance Protecting Mask
I don't really have coloured hair. I've had highlights done a few months ago, but besides that, nothing new enough where colour protection is a must for me, so unfortunately I can't really comment on whether or not it prolongs colour. It does however make my hair smell incredible (I'd honestly buy it for the scent alone) and it really leaves my hair feeling really soft and nourished.

Aveeno Eczema Care Hand Cream
This is probably the 6th or 7th tube of this I've gone through. It's just that good. I really recommend this to anyone with eczema and is looking for a good cream minus the steroids. It would also be great for anyone with sensitive skin looking for a hand cream that is super hydrating and fragrance free. I honestly cannot live without this.

Nivea Sensitive Night Care Face Cream
This was a pretty decent night cream for me back in the winter when my skin was crazy dry. I finished it off this month, but it was a bit to heavy for my skin right now. I might repurchase it in the winter when my skin is drier, but for not there are many other ones I have that I prefer.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
This is very likely my favourite drugstore mascara. It's super lengthening and volumizing. I'm usually not a fan of rubber wands, but this one was great. I will definitely be repurchasing this one.

Olay Fresh Effects Acne Hater Deep Scrub
This is the second one of these I've used up and I'm already planning to repurchase ASAP. My skin has never been ovely acne prone, but since using this scrub my skin is blemish free about 98% of the time. It is just the right amount of exfoliation and leaves your skin feeling cool, soft and not overly dry.

Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
I'll keep this short because I could go on about this mascara for years and years. It is my holy grail high end mascara. Anything you want in a mascara, this does it. Amazing.

TREsemme Botanique Nourish and Replenish hair mask
This was an okay hair mask. It didn't give me the intense hydration I expected from it. To me, it was light enough to use as a regular conditioner. (Do keep in mind that I have extremely thick, dry hair). It had a nice scent but I probably wouldn't repurchase this. I'm currently using the shampoo from this range though, and it is AWESOME.

That's all for my empties this time! Have you tried any of these products? Let me know what you thought in the comments!
