Empties (Vol. 2)

I admit, I'm pretty precious with my beauty products sometimes so it takes me a while to use things up. I don't know how other people can have an 'Empties' post every month! In any case, this past month, I managed to hold on to some of the empty tubes of product I used up:

  • Simple Eye Cream: This was a good item this summer! It has a cooling effect on my eyes that really helped tone down the puffiness!
  • Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray: Another fantastic item for the summer - it gives you this 'just got back from the beach' hair that I find perfect during the warm season! Glad I managed to use this up and I will most definitely be repurchasing!
  • Aveeno "Positively Radiant" moisturizer: I really love this moisturizer, and I've been using this since college! It is perfect for sensitive skin and makes my skin feel lovely and soft! That said, I'm going to take a break from this product, just because I want to try other moisturizers - it unfortunately doesn't quite make the cut to my eczema-prone skin, but for everyone else this would be an excellent product to have in your skin care routine!
  • Maybelline "Lash Sensational" mascara: This was such a hyped mascara and I must admit, it lives up to the hype! The only thing I didn't like about this particular mascara was the wand, but I now have the same mascara in a black tube that has a straighter wand and is more my speed. 
  • Philosophy A-Z cream: Oh man was this a skin-saver this summer! It provides a sheer, yet buildable, coverage with SPF and ample moisture! 
  • Batiste dry shampoo: I love Batiste products but I hate the white powder residue it leaves in my hair. I know they have a formula for dark hair but I wanted to use this one up before I went to buy a new one so I'm glad this one was used up. 
Thanks for reading!


  1. I love that bumble & bumble spray too! I recently got a mini of the surf mousse and have been loving it for the winter since it isn't as drying :) I'm excited to hear how the dark batiste works out for you! I've never tried any dark dry shampoo.

  2. I haven't used any Aveeno products in forever but I used to love their moisturizers and need to check them out again!

  3. I've been meaning to tell you that I bought and have been using the Tony Moly Banana Sleeping Pack off of your recommendation (not sure if I mentioned it, might have, but I don't think I let you know how it was actually working!!). I really love the smell, sad it doesn't last longer, but if it did I might get sick of it. Probably for my own good then ;) haha. I don't see a difference in the appearance of my skin, but the feel is much nicer every morning I use it. Less tight, less irritated! Thank you for a great recommendation!! ;) So I may try this Philosophy stuff!! MUCH LOVE!!


Thank you for your comments! I read every single one :]
