February & March Empties

Another round of empties! I find that I can normally collect a decent bunch of empties (trash) to make into a post if I do them every two months.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Wipes

I use these up each empties too, normally a few. Since this one, I’ve bought the water version and I think it’s better. I definitely don’t go through them as fast. However, this is still definitely my go-to for makeup removal needs.

Do I recommend? Yes

Would I repurchase? At the moment I’ve switched to the water version, but I would probably get the wipes again some day.

Garnier Hydra Bomb Tissue Mask

I still have a love/hate relationship with sheet masks. This one wasn’t bad though. I sometimes have issues where there’s product dripping off the mask, but this one didn’t do that. It didn’t make my face feel weird or tingly and just felt refreshing. The masks are always too big for my tiny head though.

Do I recommend? If you’re into face masks, go for it.

Would I repurchase? Nah, I just like trying different masks.

Too Faced Born This Way Mini Concealer

I didn’t use this that often, but I didn’t mind it. I had heard a lot of praise for it, but I think the shade I had was a bit too light. It didn’t blend too well if I used heaps, especially in the summer months as I got tanner. I used a little at a time though, and it was okay.

Do I recommend? Yes.

Would I repurchase? Probably not. I prefer my Tarte concealer at the moment.

Bare Minerals Original SPF 15 Foundation

I have made my thoughts on this very clear. I love this foundation and it’s my go-to/holy grail, and I use it all the time. Which means I use it up fairly quickly. It takes me around two and a half months to finish up a jar. That seems to be typical, as when I looked at their site, you can set up a thing where it automatically sends you one every two months.

Do I recommend? Yes!

Would I repurchase? I already have!

NYX Studio Photo-Loving Primer

After my Rimmel Primer I wanted to try something new. I’ve been using this one and while I do like it more, I’m still keen to try other ones. This one definitely made my face feel ‘smooth’. I had a translucent one, so I don’t know if the other color-correcting ones work, but this one was pretty good.

Do I recommend? It’s worth a try at least.

Would I repurchase? I may try the other variations, but otherwise I wouldn’t.

Lush Sex Bomb Bath Bomb

One thing I am looking forward to with these colder season is I have the excuse to buy more bath bombs. I tried this one on a warm summer evening in hot water, and ended up making the bathroom a sauna. I didn’t actually mind it, but I wouldn’t do it again in a hurry. The bath bomb itself was quite fun. It fizzled and made the water a nice purple/pink colour, and smelt a bit citrusy and floral at the same time. Overall though, it wasn’t too memorable.

Do I recommend? It’s worth a try.

Would I repurchase? I’ve been more impressed with some of the other bath bombs, so no.

Redken High-Rise Volumizing Conditioner

You know what’s funny? I finished the shampoo companion to this over 6 months ago. Why is it impossible to finish conditioner but shampoos go so fast? Anyway, this one was nice, but it wasn’t anything too impressive. I’m keen to try others.

Do I recommend? Nah.

Would I repurchase? Nah.

Have you emptied any products lately?
