I’m always trying a new product and if I find something it becomes a regular on repeat. What I want to talk about now are empties and my thoughts on them. When trying new products I check for samples or mini sizes available before investing fully into a product. Surprisingly, all of the empties below I would repurchase.

Glides on smooth and delivers instant moisture.
Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil
