Happy Tuesday, everyone! We are back today to talk all things trash! I have my May empties here and I’m so excited to talk about everything that I used up last month. Let’s dive on in!
AVENE HYDRANCE AQUA GEL IN CREAM – $59.99 for 50g
Genuinely loved the texture of this. Definitely on my radar.
PERRICONE MD FACE FINISHING & FIRMING MOISTURISER – $111.00 for 59ml
I remember this soaking into my skin really quickly. And it was super nourishing. Though, I have to admit that it’s a little expensive for me to pick up.
VOLITION YAUPON TEA GLOW-AWAKENING MOISTURISER – $66.00 for 60ml
This one, I genuinely do not remember anything about. I’m sure it was fine.
INNISFREE RETINOL CICA REPAIR AMPOULE – $58.00 for 30ml
Really loved this one. It was super gentle and soaked into the skin quickly. I do want to pick this up.
SUNDAY RILEY GOOD GENES LACTIC ACID TREATMENT – $136.00 for 30ml
Super glad that I tried this. Because I love it. I will be buying this when I run down on serums.
SUNDAY RILEY A+ HIGH DOSE RETINOID SERUM – $136.00 for 30ml
This was good. But I’ve tried other retinols that I liked better.
ESTEE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR SYNCHRONIZED MULTI-RECOVERY COMPLEX – $121.00 for 30ml
I’ve been through thousands of samples of this. I still don’t like it enough to buy though.
TARTE SEA DRINK OF H2O HYDRATING BOOST MOISTURISER – $67.00 for 50ml
I normally like a water gel texture. But this was a little gloopy and it pilled on me. So, I would give this a skip
ELUCENT ANTI-AGING DAY MOISTURISER – $45.99 for 95ml
Speaking of pilling, holy moly! This is pill city. It might be my bad though. As I was treating it as a sunscreen in it’s own right. And I’m pretty sure it’s just a moisturiser with some SPF. I wouldn’t buy this.
CANCER COUNCIL FACE DAY WEAR SERUM SPF 50+ – $24.95 for 50ml
*TGA DECLARATION – Purchased myself* I got this through my Bellabox. But I also got sent the full size in PR. So, I’ll take this opportunity to talk about it now while I can. I like it. But I don’t love it. Texture’s nice, it adds a ton of luminosity to the skin. But unlike the matte formula in the same packaging, this does occasionally sting my eyes when I wear it. I’ll use up the other one I have. But I won’t be picking it up.
THE ORDINARY SALICYLIC ACID 2% SOULTION – $10.20*
Not my favourite Salicylic Acid serum. But good in a pinch. My fave is from Glow Recipe.
SWISSE BEAUTY POLYPEPTIDE RENEWING SLEEP MASK – $25.99*
Beautiful, beautiful formulation. I do miss it in my collection.
ELEMIS DYNAMIC RESURFACING FACIAL PADS – $96.00*
These got decluttered. I just don’t use peel pads like these anymore. I would much rather use a glycolic acid toner with my hands.
EMMA LEWISHAM SKIN RESET SERUM – $150.00 for 30ml
Happy to use this again. It’s as good as I remember. Definitely one I want to pick up in the future when I’m low on serums
SWISSE BEAUTY BIO-RETINOL RENEWING BOOSTER SERUM – $25.99*
This was fine. Nothing special. You know my motto by now. If I’m going to use a retinol, I’m going to use a retinol.
RIMMEL LONDON WONDER’LUXE THRILL SEEKER MASCARA – $23.95
Best mascara that Rimmel has come out with. I miss it already.
ESSENCE LASH PRINCESS CURL & VOLUME MASCARA – $8.00*
This was a skip for me. But I will be picking up the green tube soon.
SAINT LUXE BROW GEL in CLEAR – $22.00USD
As far as clear brow gels go, this was good. The wand is teeny tiny. And it had a good hold. Having said that, I like the one from Essence more.
HUDA BEAUTY #BOMBBROWS FULL ‘N FLUFFY BROW GEL – $29.00
For a tinted brow gel, however, this one is excellent. I’ve talked this one to death and I will be picking it up again.
PIXI VITAMIN C LOTION – $42.00*
A like, but not a love. The scent was pleasant. But it was a little heavy feeling on the skin.
GLASSHOUSE THE HAMPTONS HAND WASH – $26.95
This smelled beautiful. Very woodsy and outdoorsy.
BREEZE BALM HONEST HYDRATION NAKED BODY CREAM – $56.00*
Speaking of smelling beautiful, the Honest Hydration Body Cream is absolutely incredible! Deeply moisturising and nourishing. And best of all, this one smells like pineapple lollies! If you aren’t wild about scents, they do have a scentless one available too. I do want to pick this up when I run low on body creams.
BEAUTE PACIFIQUE SUPERFRUIT HYDRATING FACE MIST – $52.00*
A little eye stingy. But still lovely!
And that is a wrap on my May empties! I have to say, I’m pretty proud to have finished some of these. It gives me space to pick up more stuff to try for you guys. Let me know in the comments what you used up in May.
Cheers and love
