Product Empties #1


product empties loreal the body shop garnier demert and sweet almond oil

I go through beauty products very slowly so being able to share with you all my first empties post is very exciting! It also gives me an excuse to shop. I tend to go through skincare products a lot faster than makeup products so that explains the absence of makeup in this post.

L'Oreal Hydrafresh Toner: I purchased this toner because I ran out of my body shop toner. It claims it is alcohol free but it does contain alcohol. It doesn't dry out my skin which is a huge plus but this toner didn't wow me. If you have dry skin you may want to give this one a try because it isn't drying like most toners. Would I repurchase? No.
DeMert Nail Enamel Dryer: This is a must have for me. After I apply my nail polish I shake the bottle then spray it over my nails. It helps your nail polish dry much faster than just letting it air dry. Plus it's super affordable, I bought the small size for about $2 and Ive seen the full size at Walgreens for about $5. You'll love this if you want to do your nails but find yourself not having enough time to wait for it to dry. Would I repurchase? Yes! This has become a staple and I'll be buying the full size spray.
De La Cruz Sweet Almond Oil: This year I've been using facial oils to moisturize. I like that they are natural, very affordable, super moisturizing, and they leave my skin looking radiant. I purchased this at Walgreens for about $3 and it lasted me about 3 months. It would have lasted me longer if I only used it as a facial moisturizer. I like to use on my hair, facial moisturizer, body moisturizer and its great for massages. I love the nutty scent of it, it's such a relaxing scent. Another thing to know about this is that most oils have a short shelf life, I believe Sweet Almond oil's shelf life is about 6 months. It is important to store it in a dark place like in a cabinet. Would I repurchase? Yes and I'm halfway done with my second bottle.
Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Corrector: I struggled with cystic acne last year and when I finally got it under control I wanted to get rid of the ugly red scars it left behind. This was a huge lifesaver for me, I was very skeptical about this product because of the mixed reviews but I began to see results after one month. I only used this once a day in the morning and it lasted me approximately 3 months. If you use it twice a day as recommended it'll will probably last you a little more than a month. It helped fade most of my acne scars now I only have a few stubborn ones left on my cheeks. I purchased it at Walmart for approximately $15. Would I repurchase? Yes!
The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing  Toner: I purchased this at the body shop when they had a buy 2 get 1 free sale. It definitely helped with my breakouts and my skin felt a lot cleaner after using it. One downside is that it is very drying- just make sure to moisturize after you use this toner. Would I repurchase? Yes and I'm planning on trying more products from the tea tree line.

Have you tried these products before and if so what are your thoughts?
What are your empties?

Love,
