Monthly Empties: (February)

Hello everyone! Happy first day of March! 🙂

Last month I shared my first empties post of the year. Today, I am going to share another one. I am also sharing the brief reviews of all the products I was able to use up last month. Let’s start with the Mac Strobe Cream first.

Mac Strobe Cream 

I purchased two tubes of strobe cream a while back. This is the first one, and the other one I haven’t started using yet. This strobe cream can be used under makeup as a base or over makeup as a highlighter. It can also be mixed with other cream products like moisturizer or foundation. The way I like to use it is as a base under my foundation. I think this product is okay. I didn’t find anything exclusive about it. It is not one of the must-haves in your makeup vanity. You can totally skip it if you want. But if you want to give it try, I’ll recommend trying the travel size first and see if you want to splurge in a standard size or not according to your liking and need.

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+

According to the brand, “Mac Prep + Prime Fix+ is a lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals, and infused with a blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber to gently soothe and refresh skin. It gives an instant boost of hydration while delivering a soft sheen to refresh and finish makeup.”

So, basically it’s a facial mist that you can use to set makeup or just spray to get an instant hydration on your skin. I liked this product but I have tried better setting sprays in same price range. So I won’t bother to repurchase it. It is a good mist but it is really expensive for the result it provides. 

Garnier Fructis Hair Mask

This product is hands down, one of the best hair products out there!! Let me start by saying that this hair mask is so gentle on your hair, specially if you have frizzy, weak and thin hair. Give this a try. I promise you won’t regret it. It keeps my hair shiny and smooth until the next wash (which is after 3-4 days). It has a very good fragrance. You can use this product in three different ways: Conditioner, Mask, Leave-in. I’m onto my second tub of this product. Trust me I’ve tried so many different conditioners over the time but for now I am sticking to this one. One tub lasted me 3 months. It is absolutely worth every penny.

CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion

I am glad I tried the mini size of this lotion because it took lesser time to finish it. This is the first time I tried this lotion and sadly I didn’t like it. The consistency of this lotion is too runny. As a result, it takes too much time to soak in. I have a combination skin type which tends to get drier in winter months. It didn’t provide my skin enough hydration. It is fragrance free. It is an okay overall daily moisturizer. It worked well for many people but I feel that it didn’t do much for my skin.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil

I purchased this skin oil during my pregnancy. The brand claims that it helps to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry, damaged & aging skin. It says it also improves the uneven skin tone, fine lines & wrinkles.

I don’t think it worked much for all the other things that the brand claims but it does make skin softer & smoother after the regular usage. It has a smell of cocoa which feels good but if you are pregnant it may bother you. The overall feel of this oil isn’t bad. It actually feels light on the skin. I used this oil all over my body except my face. I liked this oil. It makes your skin feel healthy. You can give it a try if you’ve a really dry skin but you may not see it working much for fading scars or stretch marks etc.

fresh Rose Face Mask

I purchased this mask a few months back as a part of a mask set from fresh‘s website. They have a very good range of skincare. I love face masking and I love trying new ones. This mask promises to hydrate and tone. It has a gel texture and few bits of rose petals in it. It smells good. I don’t really know about the toning part but it hydrates the skin after few uses and it is very gentle on the skin. I may like to repurchase it after I’m done with all the masks I already have. This soothes the skin and I really like that feel when skin needs a little rejuvenation.

This is all for today. Hope you liked this post.

Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

See you soon in the next post. ❤

Until then…
