Beauty Empties: July-December 2022

Here are all the products I used up over this six months. Most things are usual staple products but I’ve been trying new Skincare and Haircare.


MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation this is my favorite foundation and I already have another opened. I will always continue to use this.

Chanel Le Volume Mascara one of my favorite mascaras that I always use.

Dior Iconic Overcurl Mascara– my other top favorite mascara. I always have this in rotation.

L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara my favorite drugstore mascara. I’ve used this for years.

MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam V-shade is discontinued, sadly. I still have one or two backups I’m using. I wish I could find a dupe to this shade but have not had luck so far.

MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack– this is my favorite eyeliner for winged liner. I always have this around.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Powder– I really liked this powder. I won’t be repurchasing this right now because I have plenty of setting powders I want to used up and I like my MAC powder a little more than this.


La Mer Micellar Water

La Mer Cleansing Foam

La Mer Exfoliator

La Mer Treatment Lotion

I won’t be repurchasing any of these products except for the cleansing foam going forward because I decided to not use scented skincare on my face. All of these are heavily fragranced and I feel like I have seen an improvement in skin texture since I have transitioned to other skincare products that don’t contain fragrance. The cleanser is very light scent and is washed off so I am still using that in the mornings for now.

DHC Cleansing Oil I finished this up and am currently using the one from Hada Labo so won’t be repurchasing this any time soon. I like the Hada Labo cleansing oil better because it’s unscented and a little bit lighter in consistency.

Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream I have been using this every other night and I really love it. It is fragrance free and has a light but nourishing texture that really agrees with my skin. I will definitely continue to purchase.

Aquaphor– this is a staple product that I mostly use as lip balm.

Skinceuticals Salymarin CF I really like this serum and already have the full size. I don’t use it every day because it sometimes is a little strong for my skin.

Differin Gel- I have been using this every other night as my only exfoliant and I really see a lot of improvement in skin texture, tone, and it keeps my skin clear.

Vichy 89 Serum I really like this serum and have a full size.

Paula’s Choice BHA liquid– this is a good exfoliant that works but since it feels little bit sticky on the skin and stays sticky, I don’t enjoy using it that much.

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum– I really like this serum and have a larger bottle I’m using. I use this in the mornings.


Garnier Honey Treasures Conditioner– I really like this conditioner. It leaves my hair silky and nourished. I also love the scent of these products. I already repurchase.

Garnier Honey Treasures Mask– this is a heavier version of the conditioner and i continue to use this as well. It is thick and a great deep conditioner for my hair.

Herbal Essences Argan Oil Mask– I love this hair mask because it has argan oil and is also thick and deeply conditioning. I also love how affordable it is.

Biolage Hydrasource Conditioning Balm this has been a staple hair mask for years and I continue to use it.

Coconut Oil Miracle Mask– this mask was a miss for me. It made my hair feel dry and full of static after using so I would not use this again.

Redken Extreme Shampoo Travel Size– I have used this line from Redken many times in the past and don’t use it much these days because my hair doesn’t like too many proteins in haircare so I have to use these sparingly.

(Products not shown)

Pantene Repair and Protect Conditioner- this is a staple every day good conditioner that I continue to use.

Biolage Hydrasource Shampoo liter size- this has been my go to shampoo for years and I continue to use.

Those are all of my beauty empties for now.
