What are "empties"?
Empties are products that I have used from start to finish.
I am going to show you my empty makeup, skincare, and hair product containers, give a mini review, and then tell you if I would purchase the product again.
I am not a beauty guru or product junkie. (I just started using concealer.) I do not have drawers and cabinets full of makeup and products that I don't use regularly.
I am a mom that got lazy with skin care and makeup over the years. I'm not going to share my makeup story today, but I have been on the hunt for products that work well for me.
1. Up & Up Daily Facial Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin (Target's generic brand of Cetaphil- The one I linked to is not the exact one that I use, it was just the only one I could find on the website.) - I use this every morning in the shower to wash my face. I prefer something gentle, and this does the trick. I sometimes jump around with this type of cleanser, but this is the one I have purchased the most over the years. I'm sure I will purchase again.
2. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation - I use the shade Classic Ivory Light 2. I have been using this foundation for years. I have been experimenting with other foundations that I like, but I still like this one and have already repurchased it. I have oily skin. This does not leave me super matte, but I get kind of a dewy finish with it. I currently use the as my everyday foundation and I mix it with a BB cream so that I get a light to medium coverage. I then set it with powder.
3. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum - This is product that I have used for years. I have naturally wavy hair that tends to frizz. I use this on my hair and it does reduce the frizz and it does cut down on the drying time if I blow dry my hair. I have purchased many times and will continue to purchase. A large bottle (like the one pictured) will last a really long time. My sister started just purchasing the small travel size since it takes so long to use up, and I thought it was a good idea. I am currently using up my travel size that I already had on hand and will purchase another one when I use it up.
4. Tresemme Thermal Creations - This is a heat protection spray. I do blow dry my hair and use hot tools, so I use this to protect it. This is something that I have used for years and have already repurchased.
I promise to not turn this blog into a beauty blog. I have enjoyed reading posts by some of my favorite bloggers that share their beauty and skincare routines. I also enjoy seeing all of the products that they use and like, or have used and don't like; so I am going to start doing some of these kinds of posts.
Do you have a list of products that you repurchase over and over? Do you finish a product even if you don't really like it? Please share in the comments.
