Product Empties – Skin Care


I have got a lot of empty skin care products. Over the last year or so I have been trying to improve my skin so skin care has become important to me. Let’s jump into this. On the left is Egg White Pore Foam cleanser by Tony Moly. I really enjoyed this. It was pretty inexpensive from Ulta. It also smelled great. Next was a Clear Pore cleanser from Neutrogena. Do you see a theme going on here? I’m all about the pore cleaning. This is an old classic I used during college that I go back to time and time again. It’s a top favorite of mine. The light blue bottle is Pore Medic by Dr. Jart+. I really liked this cleanser, but it made me break out with a rash on my face. I tried it multiple times and the rash kept coming back. I ended up getting rid of this because of the rash. Behind that is a cleansing oil by Dermalogica. I like cleansing oils to get my makeup off and then follow with a cleanser. I have talked about my love for Lush’s Ocean Salt scrub before so I feel this needs no explanation. I emptied a Mario Badescu Facial Cucumber Lotion which is a toner. Honestly, I don’t think this did a darn thing. So I definitely will not be repurchasing it. Finally, on the right are two Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer. This is my favorite moisturizer and I think I have gone through at least ten bottles. I should be using an anti-aging or anti-wrinkle moisturizer, but I love this one so much that I haven’t bothered switching to another moisturizer.


I also have a ton of makeup removers I’ve gone through. There are three different makeup removing wipes. On the far left, is Aveeno’s Ultra-Calming wipes. I love this solely for the plastic flap that seals the pouch back closed. In the middle is Aveeno’s Positively Radiant wipes. I think Aveeno makes great affordable skin care and these are no different. I tried the Garnier Soothing Makeup Cleansing Towelettes because they were on sale and I really enjoyed them. In the back and three Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water. The blue topped bottle is for waterproof mascara and waterproof makeup and the pink topped is the regular one. I like the pink one better personally.

I have one most empty product post after this one, so stay tuned!


Product Empties – Hair Care


It’s been a minute since my first product empties post… Let’s pick up where we left off. I have quite a few empty hair care products. Three of the five aerosol cans above are dry shampoo. I’ve talked about my love of dry shampoo many times. Beginning on the left, there are two Living Proof Perfect Hair Day dry shampoos. This is by far my favorite dry shampoo that I have purchased many times. I am currently trying to use up half empty bottles of dry shampoo I have, but once they are all empty I will purchase another Living Proof one. In the middle is Amika’s dry shampoo. This dry shampoo is what converted me to a dry shampoo lover. I still love this one almost as much as the Living Proof one. The last two are hair sprays. In the black tube is Tresemme’s Perfectly Undone and on the far right is Amika’s Touchable Hairspray. Both are fine. I am not loyal to any hairspray in particular. I do not like like super hold hairspray though because it makes me feel like I’m wearing a helmet.


In this photo, there are shampoo and conditioner. I’ve talked about my love of Redken’s Scalp Relief for my dry dandruff scalp. I have already repurchased this shampoo. It is by far the best dandruff shampoo I have used. Next is the Nutritive Repairing Conditioner from Beaver Professional. I talked about this brand in an old post and I repurchased from Birchbox on a whim over the summer. I’ve since finished the matching shampoo as well. I really like this conditioner and it makes my hair so silky smooth. Bumble and Bumble’s Bb Sunday Shampoo is an excellent clarifying shampoo. This lasted me over a year because I only used it once a week. Finally, is Amika’s Nourishing Mask. I absolutely LOVE this stuff. This is my third or fourth tub of this deep conditioning mask. It smells so amazing and moisturizes my hair so intensely. In September, Birchbox was selling the Nourishing Mask buy one get one free. After I finished this tub, I had two fresh ones. It’s that good.
