Noteworthy Empties

Friday, August 21, 2015

There's something therapeutic about finishing products up, don't you think? It's a mixture of accomplishment and excitement. Now you don't have to feel guilty about that next beauty trip.

There's also something fun about peering into the products that people have used up. Here are a few beauty goodies I've used up and would repurchase in a heartbeat:



Bioderma Sensibio Makeup Removing Clothes

Sometimes, I can be so lazy with removing makeup at night, especially after getting home from one of those long work days. That's when makeup removing wipes really shine. Being able to quickly wipe the day’s grime off my face is a little luxury. I love the Bioderma cloths because they’re infused with my favourite micellar solution and the cloths are soft, gentle and durable.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel

I love using these wipes as a weekly or biweekly treatment. To refresh my skin when my pores are feeling clogged or congested, these wipes do the trick. I do prefer the “extra strength” version, though.

Embryollise Lait Crème Concentré

I have combination skin. It’s oily in some areas and normal in others. On top of that, I also get dehydrated skin sometimes. That’s why I love using this moisturizer, it is great for rehydrating my skin and it doesn’t accentuate the oiliness in my skin.

Paula’s Choice BHA 9

I have blemish-prone skin and I am no stranger to acne breakouts during that time. The BHA 9 is my favourite spot treatment for blemishes. I notice a difference the very next day. I just wish there was a Paula’s Choice counter in Canada... paying in USD is a bummer right now.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm

Cleansing balms are my new favourite medium. It’s the power of an oil, but in a convenient emollient balm texture. It didn't break me out, it removes face & eye makeup well, it travels well (much easier than an oil), it's great to use for a facial massage and it works well with all skin types.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

Why does this have to be so expensive?! It’s a great texturizing spray, though. I love using this on clean, dry hair for that extra oomph, or even on second day hair for a revitalized style. It’s not a dry shampoo, but it smells great & doesn’t wear my hair down.

Live Clean Age Resist Miracle Nutrition Oil

A pre-shampoo treatment… where has this been in my hair care routine? It’s a dual phase oil that you massage into your hair before you shampoo and it works great! It makes my hair feel smooth and moisturized, and controls the frizz.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light

I bought this when the ambient powders first launched and it has taken me until now to use the powder all up. I didn’t think I was being stingy with this—I did use it every day—but it lasted for a really long time. Well worth the price tag. I also love the soft focus look it gave my skin. I have a few products from the ambient lighting range and I adore all of them. The powders are soft and buttery, they’re difficult to resist.
