Who else gets excited when they finish up a product? There is something satisfying about seeing a product completely empty after it has been well-used and enjoyed. Some things suck to repurchase, because they're expensive, but as a beauty blogger I am constantly trying new brands and new things, so while I do have some staple products, usually emptying a container means trying something NEW :)
Here are my May empties:
|Products I used up in May '12|
The Ojon Shampoo and Conditioner samples I received in my ebeauty birthday bag were nice, but to me, shampoo is shampoo and I am not loyal to any brand. I wouldn't repurchase because this high-end brand is out of the price range I am willing to spend on hair care!
My sample sized bareMinerals purifying facial cleanser was very nice- it is a gentle cleanser with little scent. I liked it, but I have an arsenal of cleansers to try and wouldn't repurchase this one any time soon. However, I do love this brand, so if you're looking for a simple facial cleanser, this one might be worth checking out.
I used up the Mario Badescu eye cream I got in my sample package. This eye cream is supposed to lock in the skins natural moisture while being light weight. I found it to be very sticky and heavy, personally. I am picky with eye creams. I wouldn't repurchase, but I did try to make an order for skincare from Mario Badescu and was highly disappointed in their Canadian shipping prices! They will not offer Canadians any shipping discounts when they offer 'free' shipping to Americans, and only send Canadian packages via 2-day fedex which is hugely expensive! I even emailed the company asking if they would be willing to send my package via USPS so I wouldn't have to pay so much in shipping and they didn't bother to respond to me. Not impressed.
I finally finished my MAC peachy keen blush- I've had this for YEARS and wear it daily. I love blushes because they're such a great investment- mine last forever. I would definitely repurchase this blush, but I am contemplating branching out and trying some new blush brands, like benefit and tarte.
My Body Shop Tea Tree cleanser sample was an absolute hit. It lasted me 5 months! I purchased a full-sized bottle back in February and haven't had to crack it yet! So I've already re-purchased this awesome cleanser for acne-prone skin.
My simple facial cleansing wipes were amazing and I have already bought another package which I'm half way through! I love using these for travel as they're super easy and low maintenance. They're unscented, very gentle and a decent size.
Finally, I finished off my current jar of LUSH Rub Rub Rub shower scrub! This is a staple product for me- I cannot go without it! Check out my review on it here to see why you need it in your life as well! I will absolutely be repurchasing this exfoliator.
There you go, my empties for May! On to June, hurray :)
