One of my favorite videos to watch on YouTube is product empties. I feel like this is the truest product review because the product has more than likely been tested over time in various situations! The products listed below are products that I finished in October and November.
I received this sample in my Birchbox. Though the name doesn’t suggest it, it is actually a foundation. Another win for me was that this shade matched my face! I fell in love with the texture which is more like a whipped foundation than an runny foundation. It is is a light – medium foundation that is buildable. I loved this sample so much that I bought the full size!!
Repurchase? – YES! Already have.
LORAC Vitamin E Stick
I purchased this off Hautelook over a year ago on a whim. I find that my lips get super dry easily. I have been hunting for a product that put moisture back in my lips and keep the moisture there. I LOVE this product. I would put this on at night and in the morning my lips were very soft and I could still feel the product lingering. Unfortunately I believe this product was discontinued as it is very difficult to find online. Since I used this product up I have been trying to find a good replacement.
Repurchase? – Yes! If I can find this product.
I am the type of person that will probably try a different mascara each time for the rest of my life! I love seeing how different mascaras will make my lashes look. The original Great Lash mascara was one of the first mascaras I used so I feel a loyalty to try any new variations that are released. The brush on this mascara is a half heart shape and made my lashes look soft and fanned out!
Repurchase? – Eventually I probably will!
I received this product for free from a promotion. This mascara has a plastic applicator and has lash boosting serum which never hurts. This made my eyelashes look nice!
Repurchase? – I may eventually if I get a good deal on this mascara
L’Oreal Voluminous Full Volume Mascara
I found this mascara on clearance at Target. I enjoyed this mascara but nothing about it screamed Holy Grail.
Repurchase?: Probably not – I will stick to the original formula.
Essence I ❤ Extreme Volume Mascara
I had never tried the Essence brand mascara before. They were having a BOGO 50% off sale on them so I picked up 4. This mascara wand is similar to the L’Oreal Voluminous line. I really enjoyed this mascara and it is very affordable at just $5 regular price!
Repurchase?: Probably eventually!
Biore Free your Pores Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser
About a year ago I received a sample and several coupons for this new “charcoal” line. I tried the sample and was amazed at how refreshed my face felt after using it. I really enjoyed this facial cleanser.
Repurchase?: Yes! I bought another brand of charcoal cleanser. After I use that up I will be sticking with this product for my face wash.
Leeanni Eco 3 in 1 Revolution Light
I received this product sample in an Ipsy bag. I am now making it a habit to try the products I get each month in the same month that I receive them so I don’t get suck a large stock pile. This is a face moisturizer that I enjoyed. The scent was light but still something that I had to get used to.
Repurchase?: I don’t think I will. As much as I enjoyed it, I typically like to look at my moisturizer options in a retail store and not buy it online.
L’Oreal Ideal Moisture Day Lotion
I liked using this lotion because it was light and unscented. I initially bought this a year ago because I was going to use it on my face. I ended up switching and using it after my showers as a body lotion.
Repurchase?: I don’t think so. I have too many lotions
Tresemme Super Hold Hairspray – Travel Size
This is the hairspray I use on a daily basis. I go through these travel size ones on vacation super quick.
Repurchase?: Yes! This is my 5th one!
It’s a Ten Miracle Leave in Product – Travel Size
I use this product religiously after I get out of the shower. It is like the detangler sprays my mom used to use on me when I was young. Since I color my hair, the ends of my hair need a little more love.
Repurchase?: Already have – and will continue to!!!
Baylis and Harding England – Mandarin and Grapefruit body wash – Travel Size
I received this as a gift. The scent was ok but I was using it more to just get through the trial products that I had.
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask – Travel Size
I have heard a lot of good things about this mask so I was excited to try this. I really enjoyed this deep conditioner. I am always excited to try things that will add additional moisture to my hair.
Repurchase?: Eventually I will!
Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Body Lotion
This is a repurchase. I have been using this scent on and off for over ten years. It is a staple in my beauty routine.
Repurchase?: Yes! I already have a backup.
Secret Deodorant La La Lavender
I switched from my favorite deodorant, Ban to this after a YouTuber recommended it. I LOVE the scent on this and have no complaints on the performance of this deodorant!
Repurchase?: Already have!
Nail Polish Remover
I paint my nails and need to remove it somehow 🙂
Repurchase?: Yes – whether it is this brand or another I will always have a bottle on hand
Bath and Body Works Coconut Water Chill Shower Gel
I purchased this in June when Bath and Body Works was having their semi-annual sale. I love this scent and also purchased it in a body lotion as well!
Dr. Jart Pore Minimalist Black Charcoal Sheet Mask
I received this in one of my Birchbox’s. I have never used a full face sheet mask like this. I actually really enjoyed this mask when I had it on, but didn’t notice any true difference after using it.
Repurchase?: Probably not this brand
Bath and Body Works White Citrus Bubble Bath
This has to be one of my FAVORITE scents from this company. I have been using this scent in a hand wash form and I love it!
