Empties #5


It has been a bit since I did an empties post so here is all the things that I have used up:

Trader Joe's Shave- All things honey and mango and absolutely 
creamy. I have been using only this since I last discovered it and am well into my second bottle. 

Estelle & Thild Face Cream Rose Otto- I very much enjoyed using this face cream and was sad when it finished as I have no where close by to repurchase it. I can order it online but as it is already an expensive product, the shipping fees just aren't worth it. I happened upon this product at Marshall's and keep my eyes open every time I pop in. It is very rich but the skin soaks it right up and leaves it feeling very soft and not greasy. Give it a go if you can.

It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin- I am pretty sure it took me a good 2 years or so to get through this bottle. No joke. My hairdresser gave me several bottles of this and I shared with my loved ones because I just couldn't get through them. Works well at protecting my hair but I don't see the wow factor. 

e.l.f. Studio Makeup Mist & Set- Probably my favorite e.l.f. product ever. I have gone through numerous bottles and will continue to do so. You guys know I love all things e.l.f. and this product is just perfect for my everyday use.

L'Oreal Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner- Jet black, stays put, and easy to apply. Much like all of L'Oreal's liquid eyeliner. You just can't go wrong with them.

Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue- I kept this in my desk drawer at work and probably applied about 5 times a day. Mainly because I am slightly addicted to the minty tingle on my lips but also because it is so hydrating. Will be a repurchase for sure. 

Moringa Body Butter- The consistency of the body butter itself is exactly like the other which is rich and moisturizing on the body. The scent however, screams old lady. I had a hard time finishing it. 

Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil- It was a sad day in my beauty world when I finished the last pump of this oil. Prior to this I had never used an oil to remove my makeup. It seemed almost wrong. But after this, I am a convert and in all honestly miss the luxurious feeling of massaging this all over my face.

Trader Joe's Micellar Cleanser & Makeup Remover Towelettes- A miss for Trader Joe's here and it comes as a shocker to me since I heart all things Trader Joe's. But I found these wipes to be a bit too dry and tugged on the skin. Not what I was expecting. It felt like they weren't infused enough with micellar water. 

Acure Cell Stimulating Argan Stem Cell Argan Oil Body Wash- Nice scent, rich lather, left skin lightly moisturized. However, don't rush and purchase this as you could pretty much get the same results from a drugstore version.

I hope these product reviews come in handy to you. Let me know if you have tried these items. You can always reach out to me on Twitter @lifeinmascara.
