Is it too early to post an "empties" post or is it the right time....? Either way, I thought I would do this first before my YesStyle Haul with the timing and everything.
That's quite a lot of product I've managed to empty this month! I've actually used all of these for at least 3-4 months or so, with the exception of the Honey Pudding Cream, which I will come to talk about in a bit.
1. Heimish All Clean Balm
Honestly one of my favourite cleansing balm of all times. I'm so sad to have emptied this, but it's been a good run with my heavy makeup from photoshoots and general first step cleansing. Just removes all the oil and dirt that tends to cling on to your face. I don't think I can say enough good things about this balm, but I won't go on about that here as I've written a post about this already :) I haven't repurchased this as I actually have another balm cleanser from SaSa that I need to use and so far have been loving that too!
2. Skin Ceramic Donkey Milk Argan Oil Steam Cream
My absolute favourite moisturiser ever. EVER. I've actually used up TWO of these tubs this year because I literally use this moisturiser for day AND night. This has got to be one of the most perfect moisturisers for my face and I am honestly so sad that I haven't been able to repurchase it! I've spoken about this product before and whilst I totally love this, with the spirit of a (wannabe) beauty blogger, I am more inclined to try other products out. One of which would be the steam cream from SteamCream.com. If you've tried this already, let me know your thoughts!
3. Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Pudding Cream
So earlier on this month, yes THIS month, I've unboxed this and started using it. And I've actually finished using it. Emptied. Not because I loved it, but because it was kinda necessary for me to use so much of it. This is a relatively thin "cream", even when on the skin it feels like an oil based moisturiser, it doesn't actually keep the skin moisturised as well as other moisturisers do. My skin is oily and dehydrated and so I found that I had to use more of it for my skin to feel like it's nourished and hydrated enough, and it still doesn't last through the night. I've tested this without the water mask (that helps maintaining moisture) and within a couple of hours I feel like I want another layer on. If you have dry skin, you might need to use more in terms of layers of this "cream". I really want to like this product, because I do feel that it goes on really lovely on the skin and the skin looks so dewy after application, but it just doesn't last and that really is a shame! My next moisturiser I had in stock is a horse oil one - This isn't everyone's cup of tea but I've used a couple of similar products before and it's worked so well on my skin.
4. The Ordinary Hylauronic Acid & Niacinamide
Used til the LAST DROP, and repurchased before they ran out, thank goodness for that! I've included description and my thoughts about these products in my Deciem Haul post, go check it out! These 2 have been essentials in my routine since the day I got them!
There you have it, empties of the month. Have you emptied anything this month and what will you be purchasing or repurchasing?
