Hello! It is the end of March, which means my empties box is piling up! It is time for me to share some products that I have used recently, and whether I would repurchase them (or not!).
Here they are!
Let’s start off with haircare.
First off, I have to mention this Eva NYC Mane Magic Spray. This stuff really is magic for your hair. Not gonna lie, the packaging sold me, but the product inside is even better! This is a all-in-one spray that does 10 things to benefit your hair. Detangles, heat protectant, smoothing…etc. The smell is so nice and the sprayer distributes the product perfectly. A must have if you have long hair like me, and my two girls! Definite repurchase!
Uh, the Olaplex. Did I buy the right ones? Pretty sure I didn’t, because my drugstore shampoo and conditioner is better. The shampoo left my hair feeling weighed down and…almost too moisturized? The conditioner was literally the same as like, my Herbal Essences, so…not sure about the hype, but I won’t be repurchasing!
Last for hair is this Amika Flash Instant Shine Mask. This was a free sample, but I have tried this before and I love it. You are supposed to put it through your hair after shampoo/conditioner and leave it for a few minutes and then rinse. It really does make your hair super shiny after you get out of the shower and dry it. I love Amika products! I would purchase this.
Ok, on to some body/face products.
This Nivea lotion is the only body lotion I have used for YEARS. It comes in a big pump bottle, doesn’t really have a scent (which I like) and makes my skin so shiny. It really moisturizes and gives such a nice glow. Love it and already repurchased.
For face, I love this Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. I use this once, maybe twice a week, and it really gets rid of dead skin and leaves my face feeling super soft and smooth. I love the feeling of the tiny scrubbers. Already repurchased.
Paula’s Choice has my heart, especially this 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. This is super popular, but I have been using it for years and it really keeps breakouts away. I use this by just patting it into my skin a few times a week before bed, and when I wake up, my skin is glowy and soft. Already repurchased.
Can you believe I used up two nail polishes?
First off is this OPI Funny Bunny, which quickly became my favorite fingernail polish. It is a soft white, but not a bright white, if that makes sense. It is the only white I like. It is rather sheer, even with three coats, and that is why I like it so much! It looks so fresh and chic. You have to try it if you like white nails! Already repurchased.
Next is Essie Gel Couture in Model Citizen. I LOVE the Essie Gel Couture line, and this color is what I do my toes with. I always use some sort of mid tone pink for my toes; I think that looks best on me with my skintone. This is the perfect pink for that, and it stays on my toes for about two weeks. Already repurchased.
I used up quite a few lash products.
First, my favorite of all time, Loreal Lash Paradise. I’ve gone on and on about how much I love this mascara, it is super black, lengthens, and gives so much volume. Already repurchased.
Benefit Rollerlash used to be my favorite, but I don’t like it anymore- the brush is so tiny and it takes forever to get the look I need. Wouldn’t purchase.
Milk Makeup Kush Mascara – I really liked this, it gave me the same look as with my Loreal, just a slight bit clumpier, but I could make it work! Would purchase.
Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift – I loved this! It gave me the same full lashes that my Loreal does, and no clumping or flaking. Would purchase.
Lastly, my love, my Revitalash. I used this tube for an entire year, and my lashes are insanely long. This is an eyelash serum that you apply at night before bed, and it grows your lashes. It really does work, when you’re using it. You have to be consistent and use it every night. Would repurchase.
Lastly, a few lippies and a primer.
This Huda Beauty lip gloss is so pretty, but I really could not get past the smell. It has almost a rancid cardboard-y smell to it, but was actually a nice gloss. Maybe I got a bad one. Would not repurchase.
This Marc Jacobs one in Sugar High was so so pretty. I was sad when it dried up. I guess I will not be repurchasing, since Marc Beauty has stopped production!
The NYX Pore Filler is ehhh. First off, there was hardly any product in this tube, and it gets all stuck and then shoots out! It actually gives the same effect as my Benefit Porefessional though, which I love. Would not repurchase though because of packaging issue.
Whew! That was a lot of empties.
What have you used up and loved? Let me know below…there’s a Sephora sale coming up!
Thanks for reading! xx
