Hey babes! I’m back with another Empties post! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “empties,” you probably haven’t read my previous Empties Posts! Click here to catch up on my reviews of all the products I’ve used up (and are thus now empty!) After using a product up entirely, it’s a good time for me to give my full review and tell you whether or not I would repurchase it. Click any product below to be linked to purchase! Also click here for my $ saving tricks!
Caudalie Reservatrol Lift Eye Lifting Balm • $62 (for full size) – I tried this sample and liked it. Sort of pricey for an eye cream, but maybe if you’re buying during the upcoming April Sephora sale you’ll feel better about the price tag.
The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion • $9.80 – Got this after my Peter Thomas Roth retinol ran out, and I’ve since switched back to PTR (I got 4 vials on major sale, so I’m stocked for a while!) I think they are equally good, it just comes down to price and availability. Check out my review of more Ordinary products here.
Andalou Naturals Reservatrol Q10 Night Repair Cream • $24.99 (for full size) – I enjoyed this sample and think it is a good night cream. Target has beauty sales often too, so if you’re looking for a new night cream this is one you could try out.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer • $36 (for full size) – This is my holy grail favorite primer! Definitely try it if you haven’t already. They have so many different varieties too including ones specific for dry skin, color correcting, pore minimizing, etc.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water • $32 (for full size) – I don’t really think this works as well as other primers. I think it is nice to spritz on your face for a quick prime, but I don’t really “get it”…
Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream • $35 (for full size) – This is my new favorite moisturizer! I LOVED the sample and have since made a haul from Laneige to repurchase this and try many more of their products, so look for a post reviewing those to come soon! 😉
Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer • $69 (for full size) – This is another AMAZING moisturizer! I loved it, but the price is pretty hefty so I would only repurchase during a sale.
