Till the End

I sometimes find empties posts, over whelming...
The amount of products to describe... I tend to stagger for the proper words.
I get frustrated and never post.

For 2015, I'm just showing all the empties I have recently used up.
When the pile starts to grow, I will try to blog to shorten these posts.
Every year I try to do these posts differently, this is the 2015 version.



Bioderma: My HG make up remover. Gentle, fast, EASY. 100% recommend.
Added benefit: Suitable for sensitive skin.
Have repurchased.

Kiehls Ulta Facial Cream: My 2nd tub of the large size.My new favorite day cream for the fall/winter months.Fast absorbing, non fragranced, not sticky.
I bought an enhanced version of this to try next, but more on that soon ;)
Would repurchase.

Boscia Blotting Linens: HG linens! Takes off the oil and leaves the make up in place. Very thin and soft sheets, not plasticy feeling like other brands.
Will repurchase.

L'Oreal Miss Manga Lash: Soooo nice in the beginning. Fans lashes but not an extended fan effect like Maybeline the Falsies flared but seems to fan them more densly on your lash line. Very black and offers length. So-so volume. Only con is as it started to dry in the tube after 1.5 months it started to flake.
Would probably repurchase.

Benefit Speed Brow: This only comes in two shades but believe it's meant to be used to set your brows. I used it ever day as my only brow product to add color and hold shape. If you apply it to an area with brow hair it looks great and natural, if you apply it to a place where you pretty much have no hair and are faking it, you need several swipes for enough pigment, but this tinted brow gel lasts much longer on the brows than most brands I have tried.
Also the wand is teeny tiny. It took me months to get the hang of it. The brush seems better suited for someone with thicker brows, but if you have thin non existant brows, this may take some getting used to.
Would repurchase.

Dior Skinflash Radiance Boosting Pen: I wish listed this for about two years and finally bought it for my wedding.
Over concealer as a brightener it's great. If you are like me and use this alone for your under eyes, it's just ok. The coverage is better than most brightening pens but the lasting power is not there. Lasted about 3 hours under my eyes, with or without setting with a powder and the pen only lasted me about 3 months. Pretty consistent use, but not daily.I thought it ran out pretty fast considering the price tag could have got me a full sized foundation.
Honesty, I prefer the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Pen!
Save myself some dollars next time.
Would not repurchase.

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell: This smells young but not juvenille. Floral but not sickeningly so. It does not smell like several notes of layered flowers but one or two scented flowers then "woods" to enhance the nature aspect. I liked it but am looking to the new Wood Sage and Sea Salt next.
Would not repurchase. Too many fragrances to try!


Rapid Lash Lash Growth Serum: This stuff works. It's relatively cheap on Amazon or other beauty sites. After about three to four weeks of use every night I originally saw no difference. After week four my lashes started to grow like crazy. 
I found out after I finally had long lashes, they looked so WEIRD on me. They just did not look right on my eye shape. If you are looking for a growth enhancer this one is a very nice and effective entry level one to give a go. I personally experienced no side effects.
Would not repurchase.

Origins Super Spot Remover: My go to for cystic acne stuck under the skin. The moment you feel that tiny bump forming under the skin apply this right away to zap it. Once the spot has progressed too much, this is pretty useless. It seems only effective in early stages of spots for myself.
Have repurchased. Bottle #3!

Mario Badesqu Drying Lotion: The best for white heads. It really doesn't seem to do much to spots under the skin or on the skin. It has to be that ripe white head for this to work.
Have repurchased. Bottle #4!

Pretty specific spot treatments but if you know when to use them, both are effective.

Hand creams: Would repurchase both but prefer L'Occitane as it seems more hydrating and faster absorbing. The Body Shop is not a bad alternative and at a cheaper price but in my personal opinion not as good. 
Will repurchase.

Now I have been racking my brain to find a new name for these posts. I'm tired of Empties and Finished Products so any suggestions are more than welcome. 
The current title is most likely going to change because I ain't feeling it...
