Trash Talk: Skincare Empties

I just posted my makeup empties on Wednesday (read about them here). I said in that post that I was drowning in empties and that included a bunch of skincare empties! Let's jump into these products as this is going to be another long post.

Nivea Sensitive Skin Toner

This is my holy grail toner! I have very sensitive and dry skin and this product doesn't irritate it. This product doesn't make my skin feel tight and it doesn't dry it out. I always have one of these on the go and another as back up.

ROC Micellar Water

My mom received as a gift with purchase (I believe) and she gave it to me knowing I would use it. I didn't use this product to remove a whole face of make up but it did remove regular lipstick well. I particularly liked to use this product in the morning as a way to refresh my skin instead of washing it.

Boscia Makeup Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil

This is my holy grail cleansing product! This cleansing oil removes all of my face makeup. It also removes eye makeup (I'm not brave enough to use it on my eyes). This cleansing oil leaves my skin feeling clean and not tight or dry. I'm currently using a big container of this right now.

NeoStrata Moisture Infusing Cream

Since I have dry skin, I am always looking for a moisturizer that adds a boost of hydration. This moisturizer did just that! I also loved how light this cream was and it quickly soaked into my skin. I bought a big jar of this stuff because it worked so well

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

I used to love this spray! It made my skin feel less tight after cleansing and this spray gave my skin a bit of radiance. However, after I got two bottles were the spray nozzle barely worked, I stopped buying this spray because I was annoyed and I didn't think the benefits of this product outweighed this annoyance.

Clarins HydraQuench Cream

The name of this product is no joke! This add a ton of hydration to my skin! I really liked the way it made my skin feel after it had soaked in. But, this cream was so heavy and it took forever to soak into the skin.

GlamGlow Thirsty Mud

I think this is my favourite GlamGlow mask (out of the ones I have tried). This mask adds just enough hydration that my skin does feel tight from the dryness. I also love the smell of this mask. I have never personally bought the full size of this mask because I find it very expensive and it doesn't give my skin that much hydration to justify the cost. However, I love using this little samples!

Origins Gin Zing Moisturizer

This moisturizer is specifically formulated to be used during the day. I loved the scent of this product, it reminded me of citrus fruit! This moisturiser was very light and soaked into the skin fast. I really like these two qualities in a day time moisturizer! However, I didn't find that this product provided any hydration to my skin.

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser

This is a cleansing balm that turns into an oil when you add water. I really enjoyed the scent of this product, it had an orange scent. This cleansing balm removed my makeup well and it didn't leave my skin feeling tight. The only issue I had with this product was it seemed that I was using a lot of it to clean my whole face.

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation

This is a light weight moisturizer. This product has ingredients that are supposed to even out the skin tone and smooth the skin's texture. I personally didn't see this product meeting any of those claims with my skin. I also found that this did not give my skin any hydration.

Origins Night-A-Mins

I purchased this product because of the YouTuber KathleenLights. She also has dry skin so when she raved about this product, I knew I had to pick it up. I really liked this moisturizer. It was light enough that it soaked in pretty fast but it was also heavy which made it feel like it was actually hydrating my skin. I only used this product at night and it made my skin feel hydrated and smooth the next morning. I haven't repurchased this product yet as I am currently using another moisturizer.

Belif  The True Cream - Moisturizing Bomb

This moisturizer reminds me of a gel like consistence. It was very light weight and it gave my skin the moisture it needed. I will be considering purchasing the full size of this product because I did enjoy it but I am currently using other moisturizers that I need to finish first.

That is all my skincare empties! Next up in this trash talk series will be hair care empties! What products have you recently finished up?

Stay Beautiful,
