Spring Empties

Hello, it’s me. I was wondering if after all this time you’d like to….read another Empties post! You’re welcome for getting that song stuck in your head. I hope you enjoyed reading my last Empties post and I’m back with another one! In case you didn’t read the last post, Empties are when you finish a bunch of products but then save all the bottles and give a review of how the product worked. I have quite a few from the last few months and I’ve put them in groups.

Makeup:
Boots No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation— I mentioned this in my last Empties post and in a Monthly Favorites so I won’t go into another full review. But basically, I love this foundation and will keep buying it.
Clinique Even Better Foundation— I used this up over the last several months and it is probably my runner-up for favorite foundation. It’s about $27 so I try to spread it out for as long as possible. This foundation has a pretty good full coverage and it’s also buildable. This also dries in a dewy finish, not like the Boots No7 which is matte.
Daiso Eyebrow Pencil–This was amazing and I can’t seem to find another one online or in the store, sad face. And it was only $1.50.

Moisturizer:
Coast to Coast Moisturizer— I discovered this brand at Ulta, and it’s only about $5.99 in the store, opposed to the online link that ships from Australia. This is an Australian skin care brand and it’s all natural. This was very light but very moisturizing, and the scent was very spa-like.
Coast to Coast Facial Serum–This works amazingly underneath the moisturizer, it just help it to absorb even deeper and provides another layer of moisturizing.

Hair:
Gorge I’ll Make You Look Amazing— I received this product in a FabFitFun box. This was a great product for my super thin/fine hair and just helped styling to last a little bit longer.
L’oreal Volume Filler–This is one of my favorite products, ever. I already bought a second tube and use it almost every day. This gel works wonders for thin/fine hair and gives lots of volume after blow drying. This product can be worked into the roots of sweet hair, but doesn’t dry with the feeling that there’s product in your hair.

Body Wash:
Black Chamomile Body Wash–I mentioned this product in a monthly favorites a while back, but I bought it during Black Friday when it was 50% off. This is so soothing and calming at the end of a long day. I definitely slept better the nights I used this.
Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Castile Soap–This soap is multi-purposed and smells amazing, however it was very drying to use so I’m not sure if I will purchase and use it again.

Skin Care:
Derma E Tea Tree Face & Body Wash— Amazing for acne-prone skin and very gentle. I love the tingling feeling that this makes. I think I bought this on Amazon where it was a few dollars cheaper.
PCA Skin Facial Wash Oily Problem–I was recommended this brand from a dermatologist and it’s been a game changer for my problem skin. It’s also less expensive on Amazon. This formula is very thick and rich, so you don’t need a lot, which makes it last longer, which makes me feel better about the price.

Dry Shampoo:
Batiste Dry Shampoo–Best dry shampoo I’ve ever used! You don’t need much for it to absorb oil quickly. This usually sells for $8 in stores but I just found it for around $5 at Walmart.
Klorane Dry Shampoo–I received this brand in a BirchBox and it was great for traveling! It wasn’t as effective as the Batiste but it wasn’t awful.
PSSSST Instant Dry Shampoo— I also had a small can of this that I saved for traveling. This worked very similar to the Batiste brand, but it took a little bit longer to dry.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my Spring Empties and stay tuned for more! Let me know what products have worked well for you, or even things you wouldn’t recommend.

Love from, Amy.
