November & December 2011 Empties!
I was able to finish quite a few products before 2011 was over including some skincare, bodycare, and even some makeup. The satisfaction of finishing up a product never really loses its charm.As you can see most of my empties were samples this time around. Most of them were hefty samples that lasted me at least a month each so I have used them enough to formulate my thoughts on them. I have reviewed a few of these products in the past so I will link those reviews as usual and quickly summarize my thoughts on the rest!
The Body Shop Seaweed Facial Wash (sample) - I briefly talked about this being a mediocre cleanser in my last empties post and will not be repurchasing this.
Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly
Origins A Perfect World Creamy Body Cleanser (sample) - This is creamy and luxurious but I had to use a lot of product to cleanse my body. I will not repurchase because I'm not in love with this and I would have to be head over heels to buy this for the retail price.
Ole Henriksen Youth Serum Collagen Booster (sample) - I don't have fine lines or wrinkles yet so I couldn't really tell if this was helping at all. It did not have any negative effects on my skin so I can't quite formulate reliable thoughts on this since I'm not really the
Boscia Oil Free Daily Hydration (sample)
Dior J'adore Perfume (sample) - I talked about this in my last favorites post and I adore this scent (no pun intended!). I will definitely buy the full sized bottle once I finish a few more perfume samples and clear out my scent stash.
Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara - This has also graced a favorites post in the past as it is my favorite mascara of all time. It holds a curl beautifully, lengthens, and volumizes. I will absolutely repurchase this once I am out of mascaras!
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free in Bisque (sample) - This is another product that I have mentioned in a favorites. I will link the review to avoid repeating myself. I go more in depth about why I enjoyed this product in the video below as well.
Make Up Forever Face and Body Foundation in 20 (sample) - This was weightless on my skin and the light coverage was refreshing. However this sometimes looked very patchy and oily after a few hours on my skin while other times holding up well for 12 hours. This was very unpredictable and I did not like that aspect. Therefore, this will not be a repurchase.
These are unfinished products that I am giving away to my cousins because I have no use for them and I think they might find them useful.
Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (sample) - This is a semi weak eye makeup remover and can't remove my waterproof mascara and tough liners without tugging on my delicate skin. I am passing this on to my cousin who wears minimal eye makeup as it will remove pencil liner just fine.
Philosophy Falling in Love Fragrance - I dislike this scent because it is sickeningly sweet but managed to use up about half the mini bottle somehow.... I mostly sprayed this around my room as an air freshener :X
