You know what? You can have a little empties as a treat. That’s right, it’s empties time once again. Like last month, this is a shorter empties. So, let’s not waste any time!
SKIN CONTROL PIMPLE PATCH – $9.00
I’ve tried a few pimple patches in my time. And yet, I keep coming back to these ones. I just love how thin they are and how well they adhere to the skin. I think I still have most of a pack in the bathroom cupboard. But they are also on special starting Wednesday at Woolies. So, I’ll have to grab another pack.
WISHFUL SKIN GET CLEAN GENTLE FOAMING CLEANSER – $40.00 for 150ml
Not the most full sample that I’ve ever gotten from Huda. So, I can’t really give this a proper review. I will say that it smells exactly like the Yo Glow. Definitely keep that in mind.
BREEZE BALM BEAUTY BLENDER – $14.00*
A little pricey for a beauty sponge. But I did enjoy the shape of this. It has the flat bottom and chiseled edge for baking. And it had a good squish factor. I would actually grab this again
THE INKEY LIST POLYGLUTAMIC ACID – $24.00*
This has been my saviour over the last few weeks with the windy and dry weather. I’ve really enjoyed it. I know that I have one of these in my skincare stash. So, you will see this again soon.
THE INKEY LIST TRANEXAMIC ACID NIGHT TREATMENT – $31.66*
This was a product I enjoyed at first. But ended up not thinking much of it by the end. I’m using a tranexamic acid from Naturium that I’m enjoying a lot more. Also, this stuff smells awful.
THE INKEY LIST 15% VITAMIN C AND EGF – $31.66*
Out of the three Inkey List goodies, this would actually be the one that I would repurchase first. My skin responses really well to Vitamin C. And I noticed a huge difference in my overall complexion after using this consistently for a while. If you have a high tolerance for Vitamin C, this is worth looking into.
FRANK BODY CLEARING BODY WASH – $14.00
Frank Body put their whole Frankussy into this body wash. Dare I say that I liked this more than the Naturium one? In any case, I have already repurchased this and the Hydrating one too.
REXONA CLINICAL PROTECTION ANTIPERSPIRANT DEODORANT – $14.00
We love this. We need this! Also, $14? The fuck?
DAISO PUFF SPONGE DETERGENT – $3.10
Ok, so I may have fucked up a little bit here. I legitimate thought I still had 5 bottles left. I only have two. Thank god I’m going away in November.
DR LEWINN’S INTENSIVE ACTION CAVIAR EYE SERUM – $79.99*
This is one of those products that I got sent in PR, really enjoyed it, and then looked at the price. Yowza, this is expensive. I think I’ll stick to my Inkey List fave.
GUNK OFF CLEANSING BALM – $55.00
Still an elite cleansing balm. It removes the most stubborn of makeup. And in the time since I bought this, Gunk Off came out with a version of this in a shower friendly tube. Which as someone who likes to remove their makeup in the shower, I can truly appreciate. If you haven’t tried Gunk Off, you have to!
ESSENCE ANOTHER VOLUME MASCARA … JUST BETTER – $8.00*
I will admit, I did have to have a peek at my review to remember my thoughts on this one. Which should tell you everything you need to know. I won’t be picking this up in the future. I am, however pretty impressed with the Essence mascara that I am currently playing with. But for more on that, stay tuned!
GOOD MOLECULES GENTLE RETINOL CREAM – $8.00USD
If you’re looking to get into retinol, this is a pretty good jumping off point. It’s 0.1% retinol, so it’s extremely gentle. But my skin responded very well to it. Also, it’s one of the more affordable options that I’ve tried.
And that is a wrap on my empties! I hope everyone had a smashing July. Let me know in the comments what big ticket products you used up in July?
Cheers and love
