Beauty Empties

So many great empties in this batch!  I felt last time I ended up not really loving much but this week is pack full of winners.  

Pursoma Digital Detox Cleansing Bath Treatment These are some of my favorite bath soaks. My skin feels amazing and they really feel like a spa treatment.

Vegamour Grow Advanced Hair Serum OBSESSED. I have a whole post planned for this line in a few weeks. I can’t wait to show you the before/after. see it here.

Chantecaille Anti-Pollution Mattifying Cream moisturizer. Hated it for my skin. This is great if you live in a warmer climate or have SUPER SUPER oily skin.

Amore Pacific Age Defense Serum Loved. I ended up buying a full-size. I forgot how much I like this one. So great for California to help with pollution in the air. The texture is great, absorbs quickly, and doesn’t mess with any of my other products.

Dr Brandt No More Baggage Hated it. Totally made the skin around my eyes itchy and dry.

Coconut Oil hair serum Hated it. Made my hair feel weird. Not dry but not oil. I think my hair has too much texture. It worked well on Olivia’s soft hair.

Dr Sturm Eye Cream Ok if you can afford it but not something I would run out to buy again.

Paula’s Choice Treatment AMAZING!!! Best retinol treatment I’ve used in a long time. My skin looked amazing with this. I worked up to every other night and now three months in am seeing great results on the texture near my nose.

PCA Exlinea Pro Peptide Serum My go-to holy grail product. I will never go without it. Talk about a kin change. My skin looks plumper, softer, and just amazing when I use this serum.  They’ve changed the formula and packaging since the last time this one showed up in an empties.  The new formula is even better.  I usually hate a formula change but this one is a huge improvement on an already awesome product. 

Ishii Clinic Full App Serum amazing for brightness and evening skin tone. Vitamin C doesn’t always work well on my skin so this is an amazing alternative with even better results.

Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo Love the scent, the texture, and the results.

Co Lab Overnight Dry Shampoo I think we all know I hate dry shampoo but this was great. I liked how the applicator sprayed a fine mist and using it at night was great. Wake up with hair ready to go.

Coola Day+ Night Eye Cream was Liked at first but ended up not a fan. Actually threw it out before I finished it.

Agustinus Bader The Rich Cream HOLY GRAIL. If you can afford this then get it. it. now. My favorite out of all the empties this week. 

SuperGoop Mineral Sheer SPF 30 is Always a win for me but the new rule… never buy anything under spf 50 again.

Pursoma French Green Clay is gorgeous. My skin felt amazing after this one. But, the clean-up was a mess.
