Bye Bye Loves: My Beauty Empties for November 2013
I emptied a decent amount of beauty products this month and many of them are favorites! Now I have to decide whether to try out some new things or stick with my tried and true favorites. That's why I love empties posts. You really have a good, strong opinion of a product after using it all up.
Bare Minerals Purifying Facial Cleanser - 6 fl.oz. $20
I love this cleanser so much! My all time favorite cleanser has been Philosophy's Purity, but I love this one even more! It is so gentle feeling and still removes everything, even my eye makeup. After cleansing my skin feels soft and smooth, never tight or dry - even in the dry winter months! I still have other cleansers in my stash to work through, but I already repurchased this one. I highly recommend checking it out.
Bare Minerals Original Foundation SPF15 - 8g/.28 oz. $27
More love for Bare Minerals! I have gone through many of these! Most recently I have been mixing this sample of light with medium beige to get a better match for my more pale Fall/Winter complexion. Some days I wear it alone, other days I wear it over a tinted moisturizer. I always seem to come back to this powder. It is easy to use, gives medium coverage and has a natural finish.
Zoya Remove+ Polish Remover - 2 fl.oz. $4.60
I got this little bottle of remover for free with one of my Zoya orders. I can't believe I waited so long to try it out! I don't care for the smell, but I have never used a remover that smelled good. I have heard others describe the scent as lavender or baby powder, but I get licorice mixed with a regular nail polish remover smell. Scent aside, I love this remover! It works really well, removing all of my polish easily, but still feels gentle on my skin. The price for this size is a little crazy, but the larger sizes are much more reasonable. The 8oz. size with the pump top is $9.99 and the 32oz. refill size is $25. I plan to order the 8oz. size with the pump top with my next Zoya order. This is definitely now my preferred remover.
LUSH Geo Phyzz Bath Bomb - 3.1 oz. $4.95
This bath bomb is described as having an uplifting pine scent and hawaiian salt and volcanic clay to relax and soothe sore muscles. It was relaxing and soothing, but I didn't get too much of a specific pine scent. I would call it a woodsy/herbal fragrance. I loved that it completely dissolved and didn't leave a mess behind like some bath bombs do. And, oddly enough, the green bath bombs always seem to be my favorite. There is something about bathing in green water that I find appealing. Strange, I know. This is one that I would repurchase.
Bath & Body Works/White Barn Candle - Applemint - 4 oz. $9.50
This candle was not one if my favorites. I bought it on a clearance sale when this scent was discontinued to I guess I should have known. The scent was just too faint for me. It smelled okay when I sniffed it in the jar, but once it was burning it gave off very little fragrance. I was disappointed because I usually love my Bath & Body Works candles!
That's all for now!
