Empties #23

Another empties post. Since I took these photos I accumulated a lot more products, so expect another post soon. There are mostly skincare stuff and some makeup.

Caudalie Vinopure Purifying Toner, Infusion Serum and Mattifying Fluid
I got this tester set at an event but I didn't use it because I was happy with my skincare routine back then, so I gave these to my brother. He loved every product, especially the toner. It helped to clear his acne and now after a couple of weeks not using it, he still has clear skin. I won't repurchase any of them because they are crazy expensive and my brother doesn't want to use a sunscreen with them, which is necessary with salicylic acid. I also tried the toner and I did like it but I had the feeling the Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid works pretty much the same.

Oriflame Optimals Insta-Cool Anti-Fatigue Hydro Gel Cooling Face Patches
It took me too long to make this post so I forgot what I wanted to say about this face patches but I remember I really liked them. I did find a post where I talked about them here.

Avon Jelly Kiss Lip Mask
This had a jelly consistency and felt nice on the lips. It did start to break apart when I wasn't careful when I put it on. It stayed on my lips without slipping and it was cool to try but I didn't see a big effect after.

I repurchased numerous of these through the years. It's a basic creamy body lotion that doesn't have any scent and sinks into the skin fast. It's great for sensitive and dry skin.

The same goes for this one, I always have one as a backup. It works okay if you have fine hair but it won't remove thick hair. I use it on my thighs because it's easier to just put it on, leave 5min and rinse (and in-between shave the lower part of the legs), than shaving in every direction and trying to shave my things smoothly. It doesn't remove hair on the lower part of my legs though.

This was quite heavily scented but I liked the scent. The cream was very lightweight and airy, almost like The Body Shop's body yogurts. As expected this wasn't enough for my very dry skin but once or twice a week it was okay. This collection was lovely, I adored the scent and the design on the packaging, you can also get a shower gel from the same line.

Avon True Nutra Effects Miracle Glow Lightweight Cleansing Oil
I didn't like this one but I rarely like cleansing oils. It didn't work for me, I don't even remember why. In the end, I used it up for removing makeup swatches from my arms.

This was such a good find, I loved this cream but Avon discontinued it. I have a review here.

My favourite mascara for quite a while but then I got a lot of mascaras to test and most of them really impressed me, so I didn't feel a need to repurchase this one.

This was one of the rare mascaras that disappointed me in the last half a year. It's not bad but it's not good either, you can get Essence ones that are cheaper and work better.

Catrice Slim'matic Ultra Precise Brow Pencil Waterproof 040 Cool Brown
This is one of my favourite brow products. It's very slim and precise, so I don't make a mess when I do my eyebrows. The shade is also perfect, like the name suggests, it's a cooler and darker brown that suits my natural colour well.

Subrina Repair & Care Shampoo for Regeneration of Dry or Damaged Hair
I repurchased this one a couple of times, I'm not sure if I have any backup but I probably won't repurchase anymore for a while or at least half a year because I have too many shampoos to use up.

Palmolive Naturals Coconut Shower and Bath Cream
I got this from my grandma because she wasn't using it. I used it up as hand soap and it was okay. The consistency was creamy and it smelled nice but nothing special.

Balea Soft Öl Dusche (sehr trockene Haut)
This one I also used up as hand soap. We were using hand sanitizers a lot and my skin became super dry so I wanted something that wouldn't dry it out more. It was nice, it had a subtle and "cozy" scent. The texture was creamy and it didn't dry my skin as much.

Thank you for reading!
