Wow… it’s February already!? Where did the time go?
So much has changed in these last two years. Can’t believe we’re still in a pandemic. I feel that the pandemic has changed the way of life, the way people think and the way things work, now.
Blogging has always been my happy place. But during these last two years, so much was going on that I eventually lost the motivation to keep going so I decided to take a break from blogging. It was the right thing to do at that point. I guess, we all were/are struggling in one or the other way.
But now, as the life seems coming back to track slowly, I wanted to make a comeback too.🤞
This is going to be my first post of the year and I thought what could be better than starting with an ’empties’ post. Trust me, it is so satisfying to finish a product completely before tossing it away. Its a great feeling 🙂
In this post, you’ll see a bit of beauty but mostly skincare product empties. Most of the products are in travel/mini size. I prefer to buy the skincare/makeup products in their mini sizes now (if available) because I feel it is easier to finish it up before their expiry dates. And if you end up not liking something, you don’t have to stick to it till eternity 😀
Without further ado, let’s dive in.
1. Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm
The first product in the bunch is this makeup removing balm from Farmacy. I really liked using this product. It is gentle on the skin and does the job (of removing makeup) perfectly. I loved the fact that a little goes a long way. It has a mild scent which was okay for me. I already re-purchased this one and I think I am going to stick to this one for couple more months before moving to some other makeup remover.
2. SUPERGOOP! Unseen Sunscreen
We all know how important it is to wear sunscreen everyday. And we all know how difficult it is to find the right one according to our unique skin needs. For me, like most of us, I like to get the one that should not only be gentle on my skin but also doesn’t leave any white cast behind. And I think, Supergoop definitely create products with their customers in mind! They have a really interesting sunscreen product range. This is my favorite sunscreen currently, for sure.
3. Hask Argan Hair Oil
This hair oil definitely leaves the hair silky, soft and shiny after applying. I use this oil on my dry hair after washing. It doesn’t have any sticky feel. Instead, It feels light on the hair. I don’t wear oil on my hair on daily basis but whenever I do, I reach for this one. This has become an important part in my haircare routine.
4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Absolutely absolutely loved using this brow pencil by ABH. I’d love to keep re-purchasing it. The only reason I won’t is because I want to try other brow products in the market. That is all I’ve to say for this one 🙂
5. Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb
I have tried a good number of eye creams over the past few years because I’ve got this darkness under my eye area aka dark circles. Some of them worked, some didn’t. This one from Belif, I really really liked because it worked for me. After using this cream religiously under my eye area, day and night for a month, I noticed a huge improvement in the texture and hydration level, because of which, there is reduction in the darkness of under eye skin. I am glad I tried this cream and I am continuing to use it for long time, I guess.
6. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
Next up is this cleanser that I used by Cetaphil. As the brand claims, this cleanser was very mild on the skin. The texture was on thicker side. There was no foam, no scent whatsoever. It was an okay product for me. Not much excited about it though.
7. Botanics 100% Organic Daily Facial Oil
I remember the time when I used to love the overall feel of facial oils on my face to achieve that dewiness but that feel didn’t last long. Instead, I prefer to use the moisturizer for multiple times during the day now.
This particular facial oil is by Botanics which I purchased a while back from Target. I had an okay experience using it. The only thing I disliked in it was the scent. I, anyhow, managed to finish it and I think, I am over the facial oils now. They don’t excite me anymore.
8. elf Happy Hydration Cream
We all know that e.l.f. Cosmetics has some wonderful drugstore makeup products. I had heard some great things about their skincare line too. Thats why I decided to try this face cream. When I started using it first, I found it okay. Nothing extra ordinary about it. But there are two things I didn’t like about this cream was the scent and the texture. I found the texture of this cream was a bit tacky, and the scent, a bit too strong for my liking.
That’s it for the last month’s empties. Have you tried any of these? Yes, tell me your thoughts. No, is there anything on your wishlist? Don’t forget to share 🙂
See you soon in the next post. ❤
