Empties - March - May 2020

So I meant to write this all up awhile ago, and I just never got around to it. Life has been strange since the Coronavirus closures started. Anyway, lets not get too off topic. Here are my empties for March to May 2020.

There is a decent amount of products and different categories. 
Dermalogica - Precleanse Balm*
I received this as a PR sample and I enjoyed it. The texture was softer than a balm, and it worked well at removing makeup. My only disappointment was the packaging. I leave my face cleanser in the washroom and I found that sometimes the balm would melt a little and leak out, so I couldn't really leave this standing up. I wouldn't repurchase this just because of the packaging.

Belif - The True Cream Moisturizing Cream
I love this face cream. It is very moisturizing and doesn't irritate the skin. Adding an oil in the winter really brings out the moisturizing qualities. I haven't repurchased it yet, but its definitely a favourite.

Shiseido - Bio Performance Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream
I actually really loved this face cream. Its thick and I really like that in a nught cream, or something that I need for winter. Unfortunately, it has a hefty price tag but a little goes a long way. It wears beautifully under makeup and my skin just loves this. I have already repurchased, but probably won't open it up until thr weather cools down and my skin needs the extra hydration. 

Vichy - Mineral 89 Skin Fortifying Daily Booster
I didn't think that this did much for my skin, but boy, was I wrong. I've been using something else and I find my skin still feels tight and dry. I use this as a serum and my skin just loves it. I have already repurchased, just finishing up another serum before I dive back in. Definitely recommend!
MAC - Prep and Prime Fix+
This is a cult favourite. Its been in previous empties and will continue to be in future empties as well. It works great and really gets rid of cake face! This particular one is in the coconut scent, but they are all equally amazing. I have already repurchased this. 

Pink Gel Coat - Nail Strengthener and Brightener
I really liked this polish. It was mostly clear with a slight pink undertone. Unfortunately it dried out and got really thick and goopy before I could finish it.

Purlisse - Daily Lip Nourisher
This was super hydrating on the lips. It got old though and I didn't want to risk putting it on my lips any longer. 

Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner in Trooper
I hate to admit it, but I like this liner. It lasts all day and is a brush tip vs a felt tip. Its softer and I just like it. I am putting some others to the test, but I have also repurchased this. Brush tips are hard to find, please recommend some!

Beauty Blender
I'm sure everyone knows what a beauty blender is at this point, but I love them for applying my foundation. I have already purchased another. 
Giovanni Eco Chic Hair Care - 2Chic - Frizz Be Gone Shampoo and Conditioner*
I received these in a blogger box and I finally finshed them up. I really liked how healthy this made my hair look and feel and it didn't irritate my scalp.
Hydrasense - Eye Drops
I don't usually use eye drops but I had noticed my contacts were starting to bother me more during the day at work (downfall of working on a computer) so I started to put this in my eyes (even with contacts in) in the morning before heading to work and it added extra moisture all day. I have already repurchased another and have a night eye drop as well for the days my eyes feel extra dry.

Cake - Heavy Cream Body Butter
This was a heavy body butter and really hydrated the skin. I really liked using it on my hands in the winter. But also perfect for elbows and knees!

Purlisse - Coconut Oil and Cranberry Silky Body Butter
Another nice body butter and smelled great. Again, perfect for elbows and knees!

Scentsy Wax Bars
Love and Kisses, Minnie and Black Currant Bubbly
These were both nice scents. The Minnie scent was light though. Black Currant Bubbly was strong and amazing. 

Bath and Body Works - 3 Wick Candle in Blueberry Sugar
This was a nice fruity sweet scent. I love bath and body works candles and I have tons stocked up.. but in different scents. I would repurchase this again if they released the scent again.

Bath and Body Works - Foaming Hand Soap 
Stay Pawsitive, Raspberry Tangerine, Happy Easter 
I love these hand soaps as you can see they are in every empties post.
Stay Pawsitive is Iced Vanilla Cookie which smelled like a lemon cookie. It was nice but not my favourite scent.
Raspberry Tangerine is self explanatory. I think I have repurchased this scent before and I enjoy it and would probably buy it again. 
Happy Easter is described as sugared plums, sparkling raspberry and candied petals. Also a nice scent and perfect for a candy filled Easter. 
Jamberry - Cleanse Hand Soap
I think I bought this in a direct sales swap. This wasn't the greatest. I mean its soap, it wasn't bad. But I just prefer the bath and body works soaps. I wouldn't repurchase this. 

Bath and Body Works - Foaming Hand Soaps
Frosted Coconut and Wild Cherry Harvest
More soaps! Can you tell this was the height of the pandemic?! Lol. Anyway, these were both great scents and I think both repurchased from the past. I'd repurchase them again.

Empties - January & February 2020

I apologize, its been awhile since I have been on here. I really wanted to blog more in 2020, and so far its been a fail. I need to motivate myself more! Anyway, let's see my garbage so far for the year! Hopefully it gets my butt in gear to post some more!

Empties - November & December - 2019

I know I didn't post an empties for November. At the time I felt like I hadn't used up enough products to make it interesting.. so I held onto my garbage (lol) and collected it until now. Well, my bag was starting to overflow and realistically, I probably won't finish much else between now and the next 2 weeks of the month. Let's see what I've used!
