I love watching “empties” videos on Youtube- products people have used up and are about to throw away. I enjoy them because you know that if someone has used up an entire product it had to have been pretty great, or at least great enough to finish. I have been collecting my own version of “empties” to share on here and explain what I like about each product. Now, let’s get into it…
Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel Cream- This moisturizer is hydrating and feels lightweight on the skin. It feels cooling on the skin when applied, and is perfect for those who need more hydration in their skin. I would purchase this product again- it feels like a spa on your skin :))
Olay Regenerist Serum- This serum has a bit of a silicone-like texture when applied, and doesn’t leave a greasy texture on the skin. It smells nice and hydrates the skin fine, I feel like this is ideal for those who want to incorporate a serum into their routine, but don’t want one with any sort of residue. This didn’t do anything too special to my skin, but it did provide a bit more hydration I believe.
Elf HD Setting Powder- I have been using this setting powder for a while now and I love it. It is perfect for setting under the eye and smooths and brightens the skin soooo well. Not to mention it’s around $5 at the drugstore. Win!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara- This mascara is such a cult favorite and has so many people obsessed with it. I have to say I loved this mascara, I feel like it really lengthened and thickened my lashes, but I just can’t get past the price point. There are too many drugstore mascaras that work just as well as this mascara for a fraction of the cost- L’oreal Voluminous and Lash Paradise just to name a few. So, although this product worked great, I don’t see myself repurchasing it for that reason.
Thayer’s Original Witch Hazel Toner- I purchased this toner from Marshall’s a while back because I was in need of a new one. If you don’t know much about toner, it helps to balance the pH levels of the skin and also helps to remove any leftover dirt or makeup after washing the face. I use it every night to make sure all residue is removed from my skin, and I loved this one. The ingredients are natural, and it is perfect for those with sensitive skin that may get irritated with other products. It is a very simple, straightforward product that gets the job done.
