For some strange reason I love seeing an empty product almost more than I like buying something brand new. Why? I guess the reason for this is due to my everlasting desire to try new beauty or haircare products. I feel like I always read about a new product to try when I don't need it, thus the end of a products life for me is a happy time.
However these empties I've collected are actually a few of my staple beauty products. So, would I repurchase these?
Got 2 B Guardian Angel Flat Iron Balm x
Unfortunately the time has come for me to part ways with Got2B. I have been buying this flat iron balm for quite sometime (5 years now?). I always liked the way this product smelled and that was certainly one of my reasons for purchasing this spray, but the time has come for me to try other flat iron balms. Hopefully something cheaper, has more product, and can make my hair sleeker. Any recommendations?
Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation +
Kat Von D Beauty and Lock-It Tattoo foundation has been through so many important moments of my life whether it be for my senior prom or graduating high school. I almost always wear this foundation on JMC! This will be in my makeup bag until KVD makes a new formula or gets rid of it in which case I would cry, or buy all of medium 52. I honestly will continue repurchasing until I find a dupe with exact results which is pretty doubtful.
elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing Cream ?
Eh, I bought this product on a whim and didn't hate it or love it. I enjoyed the creaminess of the blush and bronzer, liking the bronzer a little bit more. I've been really dying to try Sonia Kashuk's cream bronzer so I'm excited to see this go. The one thing I disliked is that the blush, like most elf blushes, applies naturally and rosy to clown-like if you accidentally have too much on your brush.
timeBalm Foundation The Balm ?
Overall I really liked this foundation by the Balm, it was a good colour for my skin (medium), excellent coverage (medium to high), and very affordable ranging from $16-20 on eBay. The one downside is the heaviness that I felt this foundation had, since it was a cream foundation. I'm not sure if I would repurchase this as I am retrying Sephora's 10 HR Wear Perfection Foundation. If I don't like this foundation I will definitely buy Time Balm again. When I got to the bottom of this product I started heating it up with a hair dryer and I think that made the application even better, I would definitely try that upon application again.
OGX Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy Relaxing Balm +
This relaxing balm is my holy grail hair treatment. I have super fine semi wavy hair, yet I crave super sleek hair (picture Aishwarya Rai's meets Kendall Jenner's), and I can achieve it with this product. The balm lasts for 7-8 months for me even with my extremely long hair. It also feels super light weight no matter how much I apply in my damp hair. Good for my wallet, good for my hair, and it smells like coconuts definitely a repurchase.
Sweet Pea Body Lotion - Bath & Body Works ?
In all honesty when it comes to Bath and Body Works I have two simple rules.
One, the purchase must be affordable (I refuse to spend $12 on body lotion. Pass. You can find me at the semi-annual sale with coupons and scouring the 75% off bins, I have no shame). Two, the lotion must smell good (Not very difficult). I think I bought seven bottles of Sweet Pea for $2.33 a piece, which wasn't a bad deal when the lotion was around $10-$12 originally. However, I learned the hard way a long time ago not to become too attached to B&BW scents (apart from the sleep collection) as scents tend to be discontinued. I love Sweet Pea, but it's not my favorite, and I'd like to try something new. What is my favorite B&B scents you might ask? Dark Kiss lotion, and Charmed Life body wash. Yours?
What are some of your empties? Any recommendations?!Similar:
