Today I’ve got a whole bunch of mini reviews for you on all of the products that I’ve used up during the month of December! These are my favorite type of posts to read at the end of the month, and I love that you guys seem to love these monthly empties posts too! Without further ado, let’s get right on into the products.
Bonvivant Botanical Mask Pack “Collagen + Olive
I got three of these sheet masks in my November ipsy, and I finally got around to using up the last one. This mask was awesome! It smelled fresh and clean and the mask itself was coated in a lotion type texture instead of the clear sticky gel that sheet masks usually come in. I actually really liked this mask, and I would totally buy it!
Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Toner
I bought this toner on Cassie’s (ThriftThick on YouTube) recommendation, and I really did like it. It smelled very nice and I felt like it really cleaned my skin. However, I probably won’t repurchase this because I found out that the ingredients in here really aren’t that good for your skin, and I’m trying to transition to more natural products that don’t have harsh chemicals in them. (I have a whole post about transitioning to Going Green on my second blog, “Home, Budget, Blog” that you can go check out to see what I end up replacing this with if you’re interested.)
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
If you’ve been following along with my Finish 5 by Winter Project Pan, you’ll know that I finished up this concealer. I like this one just fine, but I won’t be repurchasing it for a while because I definitely want to try out some other concealers before I go back to it.
L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara
If you’ve seen any of my past Empties posts, you’ll know that I absolutely love this mascara, and you’ll also know that it dries out very very quickly. I finished up another tube of it, and I’m planning on running out to buy another one soon (I have a bunch of sample size mascara tubes to go through before I buy this one again).
Aurora Intensively Precise Eyeliner
I finally finished up this waterproof eyeliner from Aurora. I got this in a subscription box, and I liked it but I didn’t think it was very different from my typical Maybelline Master Precise liner, so I probably wouldn’t buy this again.
It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara
I finished up this mascara sample that I got in my September ipsy, and I have a review post on this that should be out in a couple of weeks. To summarize, I didn’t love this mascara.
Too Faced Hangover RX Primer – Foil Packet
I finally got around to using this Too Faced foil packet sample. This is my favorite face primer, so of course I would buy the full size of this.
Pure Brazilian Miracle Leave-In Conditioner
I got this leave in conditioner spray in my October ipsy bag, and I really liked it. I wouldn’t necessarily buy this product, but I did enjoy using it while I had it.
Soap & Glory “The Righteous Butter” Sample
I don’t even want to admit how long I’ve had this product for. I love using this all over my body after I shower, and this is my go-to moisturizer for my legs after I shave. I definitely want to buy another one of these, but I’ll be sticking to the mini size of it for sure because this stuff takes forever to finish up.
Whish Body Butter “Almond”
I got this lotion in a Birchbox back when I was still subscribed to them, and I really loved the scent of this. I would buy the full size for sure.
Zoe & Zac Naturals “Vanilla Pink Citrus” body spray
We used this as a bathroom spray, and this worked better than Febreze spray. This stuff smelled amazing and the scent was really strong and wonderful.
Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Candle
I thought I would like this candle from Bath & Body Works a lot more than I actually did. I wanted a sweeter pumpkin smell for fall, and this one had a very spicy smell to it that left me with a headache. I definitely won’t be buying this scent again.
Dove White Bar Soap
I finished up the bar of soap that I use to wash my makeup brushes with. (I have a whole blog post about how I wash my makeup brushes that you should definitely check out!)
That’s all for this month’s empties! I didn’t finish too many things this time around, but I prefer a shorter empties post to the long ones I’ve had the last couple of months anyway. I hope you enjoyed this post, and thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!
