Hello Beauty Friends!
This is my FIRST empties post - exciting!
Here are the products that I've emptied recently. Lots of skincare as you can see - since that's what tends to get used up the most. I'm not sure if I've ever used up a makeup product actually? Well - maybe mascara and concealer.
This is a product I purchase over and over again. It is my favourite nail polish remover. I re-apply my polish at least weekly so I go through quite a lot of this stuff. This one is moisturizing and doesn't smell nearly as strong as some other kinds. And it WORKS! I buy mine from nailpolishcanada. Occasionally I find some at Trade Secrets but they don't have a consistent supply (which is very annoying by the way).
I am plagued by dry and itchy skin on my legs in the winter. I feel like a lizard sometimes! I go through lots of tubes of this stuff. It does help. I always have some on my nightstand and I moisturize every night. It is only $10 at well.ca. GREAT value for money especially as I go through so much of it. This is definitely a night-time moisturizer. I feel a bit too sticky to wear it during the day.
I bought this kind of on a whim from Sephora. I used it most of the winter. We had a horrible winter here in Ontario - very cold and harsh. I THINK this helped my skin but I couldn't really say for sure. It certainly didn't do any harm, but I couldn't say that I saw any specific benefits from it either. At $52 I won't be re-purchasing.
I have used Clinique skincare products FOREVER. I love them. And they love my skin. I have used most if not all of their eye products at some time or another. This one is my go-to daytime eye cream. It has a light tint to it and a cooling metal tip. I put it under my eyes before my foundation and I don't need to conceal afterwards. It is a really nice product and I'll definitely re-purchase.
I have used Clinique All About Eyes for a very long time. Without a doubt this product helps minimize any puffiness or dark circles under my eyes. They released the rich version a few years ago - and it is lovely as well. This is my go-to nighttime eye cream and I will definitely re-purchase. I'll be 40 next year and I don't have any lines or wrinkles around my eyes at all. I'm sure that it is in part thanks to my Clinique skincare products.
Last but not least is La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. This is WELL renowned by beauty bloggers and skincare addicts alike. I purchase it at Shoppers Drug Mart for $26 and you can order it online at well.ca for the same price. This is my go-to daytime moisturizer. At least, that is how I use it. It is described as a treatment for acne prone skin. I find that if I use it under my makeup it stops my pores from getting congested and it prevents any breakouts. I have very sensitive skin that easily breaks out from lots of makeup or skincare products. If I didn't protect my skin underneath my makeup, it would be a spotty mess by the end of the day. This stuff is just awesome. I've gone through a few tubes!
Hope this gave you some tips on skincare products if you are in the market!
