Products I've Used Up/Empties Vol. 23

This year, I am trying to post my empties every two months. Otherwise, the products accumulates and it just gets to a stage which feels like too much to handle. I will try my best to stick to this schedule :-)

DRUNK ELEPHANT C-Firma Day Serum: This was ok. It sank in quickly and it was nourishing. I am not too sure if it helped with brightening. But I have used other Vit-C serums that I like better and which costs less. I will probably buy it in a value set but I don't think I will repurchase in a full-size. 

FRESH Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream: This is my go-to moisturizer. I always have a back-up of this. It is such a good moisturizer. It gets absorbed into my skin real quick but it gives my dry skin plenty of hydration! I love it.

DRUNK ELEPHANT B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum: To be honest, this felts more like a gel moisturizer than a serum. I did like it - mostly I mixed it with the Marula Oil and it was perfect. But I still feel like it is too expensive for what it is!

PHILOSOPHY Amazing Grace Whipped Body Creme: Another long time favorite. I get this in value sets so I can definitely see this reappearing in my empties. 

FRESH Soy Face Cleanser: This is my second tube of this cleanser. It is very gentle cleanser and does a good job of cleaning without stripping off your face. I can see myself repurchasing it in the future.

SOAP & GLORY The Righteous Body Butter: I like this body butter and I will definitely repurchase at some point. 

BELIF The True Cream - Aqua Bomb: It is a hydrating moisturizer and I do really enjoy it. I want to try their Moisturizing Bomb next, it seems to be more intensely hydrating. 

BELIF Hungarian Water Essence: I liked it but did not see much difference between the Aqua bomb and the essence. I will use it if I can this is some value set. 

HERBIVORE Lapis Facial Oil and Phoenix Facial Oil: I mean, these are expensive facial oils. I used it, liked it but not enough to repurchase full size.

SHISEIDO Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate: Naah, I do not like this that much but I do use any sample size whenever I am able to snap one. I hated how the product looks though; white and slimy. And it takes a bit of time to sink in! Will not repurchase.

ELEMIS Superfood Day Cream: It was a decent face cream however it had such a strong herbal scent, I did not enjoy the scent that much. Wil not repurchase.

ELEMIS Firangipani Monoi Body Oil: I absolutely adored this body oil. It is very moisturizing and I will definitely repurchase it. It is very expensive though so may be next winter I will buy another bottle. But I did ENJOY this oil VERY, VERY MUCH!

AMIKA Soulfood Nourishing Mask: It was a good mask, I am currently using a full-size tube.

LIVING PROOF night cap overnight perfector: I honestly do not know how to feel about this product!  

MARC JACOBS Daisy Body Cream: I had it, used it up, nothing more to it :-)

L'occitane Hand Cream: I do enjoy these hand creams and I will repurchase once I can finish all the other ones I have. 

FRESH Sugar Advance Therapy Lip Balm: I do not like these lip balms from Fresh, they are very emollient. I sometimes get them in those value sets, then I just use them up.

ELF Lip Exfoliator: I used it and loved it for  a while but then it expired. I don't think I will repurchase.

HUM Beauty zzZz: I got this in value set from Birchbox, I am not sure if they helped or not. Some days it felt like it helped but other days I was not too sure! I don't see myself repurchasing.  

PACIFICA Lotion Wipes: I had a set quite some time ago, and I am just trying to use it all up! I don't really like these!

SATURDAY SKIN Cotton Cloud Probiotic Power Mask and TONYMOLY I'm Green Tea Mask: Liked the Saturday Skin but not enough to repurchase. TONYMOLY was just fine.

SHEA MOISTURE Coconut & Hibiscus Foaming Milk & Body Wash: I absolutely detested this body wash. I hated it. But I still finished it up. It says "foaming" but it does not lather up. and it had a weird sweet smell which I just could not enjoy. plus it does not even work well.

That's all for today.
