I've been saving stuff to make an "empties" post, for the longest time. The pile is big enough now, so might as well go for it. I don't know how often I can do a post like this because, I don't know how fast I will go through a product, so this could be a monthly thing, but likely it won't.
I didn't really go through any makeup product yet, except for Makeup For Ever's HD powder(not pictured). I LOVE this thing, I went through a sample size, until there was nothing left. Today was literally the last day of it. I have a replacement, of course. I absolutely adore this thing, it's amazing! It mattifies without leaving me looking cakey and dry, it just works and I love that.
Clinique:(From left to right) Pore Refining Solutions, Stay Matte Hydrator and Correcting Serum and Clarifying Lotion in Number 3. I reviewed the Clarifying Lotion, in this post(http://beautymadn3ss.blogspot.com/2013/01/misc-sephora-samples-reviews.html).
Both products from the Pore Refining Solutions line are definitely favorites of mine, I love the serum and I do see some difference in the size of my pores, it feels amazing on my skin, gets absorbed quickly and doesn't contribute to making me oilier. The hydrator is definitely something that might be short on the moisturizer end for the colder months. It's a really light moisturizer and it has no SPF, so you definitely have to take that into account. You might be fine on your T-zone if you are combo like me, but other areas of your face might need some more moisturizing powah! If you are normal or dry skin, you'll definitely need a bit of help for the colder months.
I definitely recommend these products if you have somewhat big pores. Mine weren't huge to be honest. I'm always extra dramatic when it comes to my skin, it's not perfect, it has it's flaws, but they are not as major as I think they are! It decreased the size of my pores, but they weren't that big to begin with. I have repurchased these and definitely will keep on repurchasing on and on, unless I find something else I like more, but so far, I haven't.
Neutrogena - Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Hydrating: I talked about this in another post, which you can find here (http://beautymadn3ss.blogspot.com/2013/03/drugstore-haul-feb-23rd-and-some-reviews.html). These are great, not rough on my skin, moisturizing, smell amazingly great and remove my makeup! They don't remove eye makeup that well, though. Definitely will keep on buying these and have.
Murad - Clarifying Cleanser: I loved this while it lasted, it was a great cleanser for the day time. I miss it, oh I miss it so bad! But, Murad is on the overpriced end, so I won't repurchase this product. I didn't get any breakouts while I was using it, which is great! So, it does kinda work for that, but my blackheads stayed. I wonder when will be the day where I see those nasty, evil little guys, leave my face! :'(
Laura Mercier - Flawless Face Polish: I loved this scrub and have a replacement(yay!). It works just as a scrub and does what a scrub does, it scrubs...LOL! It's not too rough, then again I am rough on my sensitive skin, we have a bad relationship sometimes!
Julep - The Best Pedi Cream: I like this, it smells good and definitely does help keep my feet soft. It does what it promises. Would I repurchase? No, I won't as usual with Julep products, they run on the overpriced side of the scale. I rather get my Flexitol Heel Balm, that works wonders for my feet and is way cheaper.
Philosophy - Hope in a Jar: First of all, I HATE the smell of this, it's nasty. I didn't really notice much of a difference while wearing this. It moisturizes without leaving an oily finish and it gets absorbed by my skin, nothing amazing or different, just a moisturizer. Would I repurchase? Nah, not worth it, at least not for me.
LaRocca - Hibiscus Cream Cleanser: This is supposed to be a cleanser and a gentle exfoliator, it doesn't remove make up and I felt no difference with the exfoliation part. Wouldn't repurchase, as I like cleansers that will remove any leftover makeup and this one just doesn't cut it.
Nailtiques - Avocado Foot Crème, Cuticle & Skin Gel and Nailtiques Formula 2: Both the Avocado Foot Crème and the Cuticle and Skin Gel, work fine, but I definitely won't repurchase. They are a bit overpriced in my personal opinion for something that just regular moisturizer will do. The Nailtiques Formula 2, on the other hand I will definitely repurchase and have repurchased. It has helped my nails a bunch and I really like it, definitely worth every penny, at least for me.
Sephora - Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover: This worked really well and I liked it, it removed my eye make up without irritating my eye or anything and without lot of effort. I won't repurchase, because I know there are drugstore products out there that work just as well.
bareMinerals - Active Cell Renewal Night Serum: Didn't notice any difference at all while using this. I won't repurchase, because it didn't do anything for me.
Macadamia - Healing Oil Treatment: I love this! It definitely helps my hair be healthier and smells amazing. It's a bit on the overpriced side. I will be really happy if I get it in a subscription box, not so sure I will buy the full size because of the price.
I hope you enjoyed this post, I don't know when I'll have enough empties to make another of these posts, but I will keep them coming for sure!
