Product empties #4 feat. Klairs and Clinique
There’s something really satisfying about rounding up a bunch of empty containers, because for one it means my ridiculous spending on beauty products is somewhat justified, and two, it means I can clear that shet out of my bathroom to make room for new empty shet. YAY.
- Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
Ugh I was so glad to be done with this. It had a nice texture, but did nothing for my dark spots, as noted in my in-depth review. Will not repurchase.
- Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream
This was part of the Klairs Wish Box from Wishtrend, and it’s a solid moisturizer. It’s nothing exciting though, and I much more prefer the texture and results of the fancier Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream.
- Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm
This did a great job of removing my makeup without stripping my skin dry or clogging it up. It’s also unscented, which is actually a negative for me (I like nice smelling things!), but is great for sensitive skin folks. Overall a really great first cleanser, and I would consider repurchasing this.
- DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
Ahh yes, the famous best selling oil cleanser, and what got me into oil cleansing. To not risk sounding like a broken record, you can read my full review here.
- Pixi Glow Tonic
I like this as a pH adjuster for days I apply my actives or as a cleansing toner. Even though it does contain glycolic acid, it’s very gentle on the skin. It does its job well and is reasonably priced, so this will likely remain a skincare staple until I find something better.
- Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum
Another product I reviewed previously. Probably will not repurchase just because I have more critical skin issues (dehydration + sun damage) that I need to deal with before I deal with my stupid pores.
- Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-action Eye Makeup Remover
I really liked this makeup remover. Removed my eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow in a few swipes and didn’t irritate the eye area at all. Bonus points for the pretty Lancôme packaging too!
- Kanebo Allie Extra UV Protector Perfect Alpha SPF50+ PA++++
This is your typical milky sunscreen and its texture reminded me of my old HG the Shiseido Anessa. When applying the correct amount, it makes my face ridiculously oily, yet it doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. I think I may like this more if I had drier skin, but for now I will not repurchase this.
- Odylique Gental Herb Shampoo
I love Odylique’s use of simple and organic ingredients, and this shampoo is no different. While it doesn’t exactly smell nice, it does a great job of cleaning my hair without drying out my scalp. Will purchase full-size product in the future.
- Burt’s Bees Milk and Honey Body Lotion
I’m obsessed with all things honey, so of course I bought this when I saw it. It’s incredibly hydrating and nourishing, even in the winter time, yet it’s not sticky at all and absorbs instantly. Sadly it smells like milk gone bad, so I’m not sure if I’ll be repurchasing this.
Have you tried any of these products before? If so, what were your thoughts on them? If you have any questions or would like more details on any of the products, let me know!
