July and August 2015 Empties
Let's make this empties post as succinct as I possibly can. I bid farewell to few great skincare staples including a huge bottle of Bioderma. I bought a two pack from Paris two years ago and only just finished up the second bottle. I really like Bioderma and consider it my favorite cleansing water so I'm bound to repurchase it in the future. The Up & Up Eye Makeup Remover from Target is my choice eye makeup remover because it does the job and is inexpensive. I've gone through probably more than five bottles. The Kiehl's Ultra Facial Toner and Cleanser are great for normal skin and do the job without frills. Vasanti's BrightenUp is a very grainy exfoliant that polishes off dead skin cells without being too harsh. Shiseido Cotton Pads are my ultimate favorite cotton pads because they're oh-so-soft. They're expensive but worth the money to me.
The Clinique Face Scrub for Men was a pleasant surprise because it buffs the skin while imparting a refreshing tingly sensation. Notable mentions from this pile are the Alterna Caviar Shampoo and Conditioner which I used during travel and really enjoyed. The conditioner in particular was great at restoring my hair. Despite loving Bioderma's signature cleansing water, their Sebium AKN acne treatment wasn't anything outstanding to me and I had about half the tube left but it's now expired. Into the bin that goes!
This empties turned into more of a word vomit and mini review dump rather than a concise write up. I have about a gajillion deluxe sample skincare products floating around my vanity and several travel makeup bags because I've been on the road (or in the air) for the past week. I expect to have finished up a lot of those by the end of October so I can share my thoughts with you all then!
