My girl Gaby does a monthly empties post *show off*, that I love so I will be
Product: Bath & Body Works Shower Gel in Peach Citrus
Re-purchase: No, not a scent that I miss that much & it really didn't linger long on my skin
What I'm using to replace it: Let's be real, I don't just have one shower gel on the go at a time but currently in my shower is St. Ives Energizing Citrus body wash & Ulta's Beauty Smoothie go-go guava (which I also gave to one of the niece's who loves it!)
Product: Paula's Choice Skin Balancing cleanser
What I'm using to replace it: I'm on my second container of this, very gentle cleanser, my face reacts well to it & does the job well. I just wish it wasn't only available online, so I'm continuing to test others that are more readily available, that I will use in addition to this.
Product: Avon Beyond Color lip conditioner
What I'm using to replace it: I've bought 2 more of these when they were recently on sale. They have a bit of a nude colour payoff and have SPF in them. I like to use these as a base for other lip products.
Product: Reversa Anti-wrinkle fluid with glycolic acid
Re-purchase: Plan to, yes.
What I'm using to replace it: I have a love/hate with this lotion. There are times when I think it does nothing for my skin & then others when I miss it. Right now, I don't have it and I miss it. If you don't like that stinging sensation that you often get with glycolic acid products, you won't like this.
Product: EOS shave cream in Island Blue
Re-purchase: No, this was a pain to use. It often clogged up the razor & doesn't foam up so it can be hard to see where you've already shaved. I do love the smell of this though!
What I'm using to replace it: Schick Intuition Naturals, it's fragrance free, hypo-allergenic and contains Aloe & Vitamin E. I love that it's an all in one kind of product, no fuss/muss with shave creams. I only wish it had a bit of a longer life, I have to keep track of how many uses I get from one re-fill sometime.
Product: Lancome High Resolution Refill-3X skin cream
Re-purchase: If only
What I'm using to replace it: This was a slippery slope getting this mini size in a gift with purchase, because it's expensive and I didn't want to love it. Turns out I love it. I don't care that it's expensive, I don't care the Paula Begoun doesn't approve, my skin & I adore this. I don't exactly love the packaging because I know the product breaks down when it's in a jar. But this moisturizer and my face love each other, there is no denying it. Mr. J bought this for me as one of my gifts for Christmas this year. I hate that I love it so, but I do.
Product: Bronzer - Hoola by Benefit
What I'm using to replace it: Let's just take a moment to celebrate this accomplishment shall we? This is a huge box of product really & I finished it!! After trying a few others, while also using this, I learned that this is truly my go to bronzer. I love it so & I am already working on a new one.
So there you have it, my first ever empties post and I was most surprised at how many products I'd re-purchase. I was also surprised at how fun it is to do these posts. I'm already busy squirrelling away things for my next one & am addicted to finishing things now.
How about you? What have you finished lately? Have you tried any of these products?
