Empties #3 | Products I've Used Up + Mini Reviews


Hellooooo! I have a big empties for you all. It's a couple of months or maybe even more, worth of used products. I have been using these until the last drop or it's finished and have been keeping them in a bag aside. So I was really ready to get rid of these because it's basically trash. So here we go!

 Pantene Dry Shampoo - This has become my favourite dry shampoo. It's very inexpensive, doesn't leave white cast on darker hair which is amazing and I like the shampoo smell it gives my hair.

☆ Clean & Clear Facial Cleansing Wipes - I love these wipes. I use them all the time, the cloth is really soft and gentle on my sensitive skin, really saturated with makeup remover. Doesn't sting my eyes and totally love them.

☆ Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and Moisturizing Lotion - I like the cleanser. It's gentle on my sensitive skin, doesn't break me out, cleans my face and leaves it feeling smooth and clean. The moisturizer i wasn't a big fan of. I got tiny bumps when I used this so it might have been a reaction even though this claim to be for sensitive skin, I didn't enjoy using it and also, it wasn't enough moisture for my dry skin. Absolutely no scent in either of these which I loved but like the cleanser, not the moisturizer unfortunately.

☆ Loreal Voluminous Mascara, Benefit They're Real Mascara and two of Tarte Lights Camera Flashes Mascara - I loved all of these 3 different type of mascaras. the wand is all plastic which is my favourite kind. As long as the want is plastic, I will like the mascara most of the time. In this case, it was the same. I really enjoyed using these three. didn't smudge, or irritate my eyes. Separated my lashes and no clump which I hate clumpy lashes personally.

☆ Yves Rocher Felt Tip Liner - I really like this eyeliner. It has a marker type felt tip instead of a brush and it is very stiff which I enjoy because if it moved around a lot, it would ruin the straight line of my liner. Over all, I like this and it's a normal black liquid felt tip liner. yea

☆ Tarte C-Brighter Eye Cream - I have used 2 smaller size and 2 regular sizes of this eye cream. I really enjoy it. It has vitamin C which is my favourite to use on my skin. It moisturizes the eye area, doesn't sting or make my eyes water, which some eye creams do. It hydrates and overall, a really good eye cream in my opinion. 
☆ Bath and Body Works Body Lotions in Country Chic and Amber Blush - these both have a more sweet scent so I prefer to use them in winter or colder months. In warmer months or summer, I enjoy more fresh, beach-y scents. Both of these smelled great and I love them during winter. But I have to say, these are light moisturizers and I have extremely dry skin during winter and I felt like it wasn't enough moisture for my skin. So I would either put on multiple layers of them on and use it with a more thicker lotion for my body. I love these so much, but unfortunately it's just not enough for my dry skin. I will keep using them but maybe more in the summer months or just use it with other moisturizers.

☆ Clean & Clear Soothing Eye Makeup Remover - I love this one so much just like the wipes. I use the wipes on my face, this on my eyes because it removes the eye makeup so much better than a wipe would specially mascara. This is two parts, one makeup remover, the other is an oil which I mix then remove the eye makeup. It's very gentle yet removes the makeup so easily there's no need for tugging or rubbing the eyes. I will always go back to this.

☆ Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray - I believe the packaging has changed again on these... the packaging keeps on changing and changing, I had the old white packaging and now I am actually trying out All Nighter which is still white for mine, maybe they changed it right after I had bought mine, I don't know. By now I have used the de-slick, chill and all nighter, and I have to say, I will go back to Chill setting spray after I am finished with all nighter. Chill was so amazing and cooling yet, hydrated my dry skin and I remember loving it. Now I don't know if the ingredient is any different on these or maybe it's my imagination, but I prefer Chill over the other two.

☆ Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Cream - I love vitamin C but this started to break me out so I used it on my body during winter because the cream is thick and my skin loved it. it's not a body lotion or moisturizer or anything but I didn't want it to go to waste skin my face didn't approve. 

☆ Spectro Cleanser for dry skin - I got a small sample of this from my dermatologist and really liked it and bought the bigger size and I love it, even more than the Cetaphil. Both of them are found in the drug store and have become my two cleansers that I switch between. I feel like when I use higher end skin care, my skin can't handle the extra ingredients so I have decided to stick to simple skin care from drugstore and my skin has been liking it a lot.

So there you have it, a mini review of all the products I have used up. The products piled up because I hadn't had the time to write a post about them, but now that I am back at blogging, I don't think the next empties will be as big as this one. Hope you enjoyed, let me know what products you have used up lately and leave your comments in the section below.
