Summer 2017 Empties


Vichy Aquaria Thermal Serum - I bought this after reading reviews from Caroline Hirons and various Youtubers. The texture of this is very watery and lightweight. It is however, heavily fragranced. I grew accustomed to the scent but overall, did not see significant changes in my skin for me to buy again. 

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner - This is great at smoothing out textured skin and attacking clogged pores. I have attempted to stray away from using this due to the high alcohol content but somehow always find myself reaching for this. Hoping to find another toner with less alcohol content. 

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with Super 7 Complex - Decent morning and night moisturizer but did not like the unhygienic jar packaging.

Dr. Dennis Gross Dark Spot Sun Defense SPF 50 (deluxe) - I don't recall either loving or hating this, so I guess the overall impression was meh. 

Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 30 (deluxe) - Super oily! This was too oily to use under my makeup in the mornings, I finished the rest by applying to my neck and chest. 

Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser - Great at removing face makeup but burns my eyes. For this reason, would not repurchase.

Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 - Loved this! Lightweight and absorbed quickly to a semi-matte/satin finish. 

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum - This was highly rated by Paula's Choice. It was pretty good, might repurchase


Essence Eyeliner Pen Waterproof - Pretty good eyeliner for the $2-$3 I paid for it at Ulta. Really fine point makes it super easy to draw a winged liner.

Lancome Cils Booster XL - This really does help to volumize and lengthen lashes in addition to mascara! Have repurchased it at least 2-3 times but now I am using the lash primer from L'oreal which is just as good and cheaper.

It Cosmetics Hello Lashes Extensions (deluxe) - Good everyday mascara but would rather pay less $$ for a drugstore mascara that works the same, if not better.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara (deluxe) - Decent but would not repurchase

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer (light) - Loved this concealer! Using it in the shade neutralizer now, it's more yellow-toned which I like

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Tough as Taupe - Didn't really end up using this as eyeshadow. It dried up fairly quickly but then I started using it as an eyebrow pomade. Worked pretty well! It's a cool, ashy tone for the brows.
