January / February Empty Products

It seems that quite a few people like when I give my opinon on products that I’ve emptied. If you are one of them be sure to like this post and I will be sure to keep giving you just what you want.

Here a few products that I have emptied.



Fresh: Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner

Price: $45 -8.4 oz / $25 – 3.3 oz

Use: Daily

Benefits: This is an excellent toner. I use this morning and night and it’s perfect for bringing back moisture to my skin after my nightly routine. This product gives so much moisture that at times I forget to apply my nightly moisture. I apply this toner before my serum and moisturizer.

Highlighted Ingredients:
– Rose Fruit Extract: Known for its toning properties.
– Rosewater and Rose Flower Oil: Soothe and nourish.
– Hyaluronic Acid: Helps attract and maintain moisture to enhance suppleness.

Ingredient Callouts: Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, and phthalates.

Would I Repurchase? Yes / I purchased another bottle before I even finished the first.


Sunday Riley; Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment

Price: $105: purchase the set to include the luna retinol oil for a huge savings

Use: Nightly

Solutions for:
– Dullness and uneven texture
– Dark spots
– Fine lines and wrinkles

Would I Repurchase? No. I don’t have anything against the Good Genes but I found after purchasing 2 sets of the Sunday Riley, the Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil benefited my skin more. I want to try other lactic acid treatments to see if I can get different results at a lower cost.




Maybelline – FIT ME! Concealer- 35/Deep

Price: $5.99 (Target)

Use: Daily

Benefits: This concealer is thin but buildable.  It is a great concealer for under eye coverage and for covering dark spots.  I use this concealer daily with or without a full face of makeup.  It is better than most high-end concealers.

Would I Repurchase? Yes. I have purchased this concealer more than three times and always make sure I have one in my makeup stash.


Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Price: $24 / Mini Size – $13

Use: Daily

Benefits:  I call this ‘the super glue for eyeshadow’. Prior to applying your eyeshadow use the urban decay primer

Would I Repurchase? Yes. I have purchased this concealer more than three times and always make sure I have one in my makeup stash.



As I Am – Leave in Conditioner

Price: $10.49

Use: Frequently


  • Detangles your curls and minimizes frizz
  • Strengthens and moisturizes to help eliminate breakage
  • Works alone or as the perfect base for additional styling products
  • Free of harmful sulfates, detergents, soaps, and salts

Would I Repurchase? Yes. I keep a backup bottle at all times. This is perfect for when I want to wear my hair in a protective style for quite a while. I’ll even put it in when I throw my hair into a ponytail after a wash because I know I won’t be able to take care of it as much I’d like during the week. It gives me a bit of comfort knowing it’ll still be taking care of my hair.

    I have been using Aunt Jackie’s curl la las
    It provides a lot of moisture.
    Do you like to moisturize with water daily?
    Or just some form of product that has water as the main ingredient?

      I don’t moisturize with water daily as I live in a humid location and my hair can frizz easily. I usually will grab a product that has water in the top main ingredients and can also fight the frizz.

      I am now on my second bottle and I’m still enjoying it. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped and dry like other toners I’ve used in the past. It’s very moisturizing.
