Empties (Vol. 5)

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

I admit, I procrastinated taking photos for this post which was kind of dumb on my part because that just meant I had to keep all of these empty containers of used products around, creating clutter for myself. Ahh, the things we bloggers do...
In any case, here are a couple of products I've used up:

  • NARS 'The Multiple' in shade Portofino: I'm so glad I've finally used this blush up - I've been using the same shade for the past three years, and while I love it, I think I'm ready to try something new. This shade is a gorgeous deep shade that I like to use in the winter time. I highly recommend it!
  • Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion: I received this as a sample a while back during an event I went to at Origins. I really liked this and as soon as I ran out, I went ahead and bought another one. True to its name, this exfoliator is very gentle! Exfoliators are a big part of my skincare because I have eczema. This is by far the best at getting all my dry skin off of my face while not irritating my skin at all!
  • L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara: I actually really loved this mascara and I just bought a new one! It's great at lengthening my lashes while giving them a boost in volume and holding my curls.
  • Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule: I have nothing but great things to say about this product. I did a whole review of it that you can read here, but I will reiterate, this is amazing (especially if you have dry skin) and great value. It lasted me a whole year so you get a lot for your money too!
  • First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: Not only did I love it, Brian loved this as well! It's so hydrating and makes your skin feel so soft! This is a definite HG product for me!

  4. looks like some good things you finished!!! i finished 2 tubes of lash paradise already haha i'm on my 3rd.. it's soooo good xD

  5. Doesn't L'Oreal make such great mascaras? I use 3 mascaras daily but my base layer is L'Oreal!

  6. I looooove that L'Oreal mascara too! It's just so good at getting the job done in just a few coats. Also, so glad to hear that you liked the First Aid Beauty cream! I've only used the cleanser (hands down, my favorite) and exfoliating pads, so I've been itching to try more products from FAB! :)

  7. Wow you finished a blusher! Well done you haha, I find that this happens so rarely. The Origins exfoliator seems really good too, especially if it's gentle for the skin :)

  8. I think I've never finished a blusher in my whole life! I've either got tired of the colour or it got way too old and had to throw it out so props to you!

  9. I hadn't heard of many of these so thanks for sharing! The name of snail repair puts me off a bit but it's wonderful you've gotten great results from it despite the weird snail part, haha!

    Hope you are having a good week so far, and a lovely start to 2018! We've been sick, so not the best start to the year, but it can only get better from here right? haha.
