Good morning everyone! Today’s post is one of my most favorite to do: Beauty and Skincare empties. If you know me, you know I love testing new products and giving honest opinions about them. A lot of my girl-friends will DM me concerns and ask for tips on products I like or what I feel could help them.
I’m going to be super honest and not ‘fluff’ these products – also a lot of these are purchased at many different locations but I’ll link certain sites that have the items available in case you want to try them as well!
- Sephora Kiwi Rubber Mask
I purchased this to do a ‘luxury vs affordable’ post on rubber face masks. This item is SO worth the price but the actual mask didn’t do what I thought; in fact… It stained my leggings cause it was dripping so much. Do I think its worth a repurchase? yes ONLY if you’re really into face masks… But I highly suggest wearing clothes you’re okay with getting messy & don’t fill the water all the way to the recommended spot (less water makes it less runny!).
- Mixology Scrub
This scrub was purchased at a Casino we sometimes visit. You can purchase this product online and in many spas. It’s really nice for massaging into your skin if you’re about to spray tan or do an ‘at home’ Pedi. Totally worth having.
- Tory Burch “Just Like Heaven” perfume
This perfume is so ‘heavenly’ (see what I did there?). Every time I wore it I felt wealthy. It’s a very soft and luxurious scent. Would I purchase? Only if its the right price.
- Flower Powder Foundation in Color PP2
Flower brand is sold at Walmart and is by Drew Berrymore (hey girl hey!). This compact has held the test of time until it finally cracked after my toddler slammed it into a wall. Coverage is perfect, fits in all my small purses, and comes with a brush that isn’t worth using. Totally would repurchase. *the Flower Powder is in new style of packaging which is awesome!*
- Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Face Wash
This facewash isn’t anything to write home about. It cleans. No major changes in my skin. I would stick with purchasing Face wash #6 (read it next!)
- Sephora AMA Clean Skin Gel Wash
WOW. For only $10 this facewash was used more than my La Mer! I used this 2x daily and couldn’t process how Sephora is able to sell this Italian made cleanser for so cheaply! The scent is a little odd (to me its a candy scent); but I recommend just going to Sephora and asking for a sample to try it out! I am already purchasing 2 more bottles.
- Softsoap Honey Creme
This drugstore find is really nice on exhausting days. The scent is really soothing and it does the job. Super affordable and can be found anywhere.
- Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Its been a fan favorite for years. I love the wand this thing has gives length and volume. Define worth the splurge if you want to have the look of false lashes without having false lashes.
- HUM Collagen POP
Dang it someone explain to me why I bought this again knowing how much I hate the taste of the tablets. DONT purchase unless you’re down for weird tarte/powder taste in your water.
- Shiseido Essential Cream
This cream is so nice. Simple rundown- No scent, J-beauty, soft texture, smooth skin is your results. Definitely, buy or at least get a sample of this. Like no joke try it at least once.
- Holika Holika Pig Clean Black Head 3 step kit
The packaging is LOL-worthy. But hey it wasn’t the worst thing in the world. I enjoyed this product but be ready to invest about 50 minutes in total for this 3-step kit. Also, the link is to a site where it’s 60% off! So if you’d like to try this definitely shop the link!
- Bath and Body Works Pineapple Luau Shower Gel
This little bottle was all I needed. The scent is really tropical and strong. Online the fragrance is retired but I linked a similar one from the Summer Collection.
- Tony Moly Pikachu Mini Cushion Foundation
I MUST FIND MORE. This product went above and beyond what I expected. The coverage is medium and the packaging is too darn cute! I literally can’t find it anywhere but if you find it – BUY IT ALL. *The link to the website says it’s still available and there’s a coupon code! It’s already 50% off before the code!!!*
- Spa Life Tea Bath Salts
My hubby surprised me with this gem from Target. It has rose petals in it which are so nice until your drain gets clogged. Stick with getting a bath bomb from Lush. Fun fact: I found this bath salts bottle are Tjmaxx the other week as well!
