Skincare Empties I’ve used up! - Would I Repurchase?

So the concept of this empties post is basically to show a list of products I've used up, my thoughts on it after and to say which ones I will be repurchasing asap or not. So without typing too much back-story, here are my recent Empties for August 2017.


MURAD's AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser

This came in my Sephora points gift set, and I was really excited because I love cleansers with AHA and BHA, the acids really penetrate deep into your skin to clean them out. It has some exfoliating beads in it and really scrubs while cleansing your face. Once I rinse it off, my skin feels tight, smooth and extra clean. I used this as a 1st cleansing step in my PM Routine, when my skin felt dry or if I started breaking out. Really good Cleanser.

Repurchase? YES, definitely will.

MARIO BADESCU Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

So this is not new to me. I have finished at least 3 of the big bottles in the past few years. This was a sample bottle, amongst others, sent to me by Mario Badescu after spending $50 or more (I think). I love this deep cleanser. It really helps with fading dark spots and deep cleansing. The Glycolic acid in it helps to fight bacteria on the top level of your skin and helps with hyper pigmentation. I use it every time I do an at home facial about 2 - 3 times a week. It gives me that clean skin for my treatments and mask to really absorb into my skin, and I have seen results of it fading my dark marks. This is a constant in my skincare cabinet. Now that it’s done, it’s back to getting the big ol' bottle.

Repurchase?YES, absolutely


FRESH's Soy Face Cleanser

I got this sample size from Sephora as well as a point’s gift (I shop so much at Sephora!) I read some good reviews on it and was really excited to try it. It's a gentle cleanser and smells nice. It just didn't stand out to me, nothing special about it. My face didn't feel as clean as other cleansers make me feel. Fresh is a good brand, but this cleanser didn't worked for my skin tone and type unfortunately.

Repurchase? Nope :(

SI CLINICAL's Cleansing Complex (Product Review)

This isn't completely empty, but it is going to be by the time I upload this post, because I use it both morning and night. It's such a fab product! From my review you already know how I feel about this product. It really helped me with getting rid of my acne. I also noticed after I use it, I didn't need a toner. (Even though sometimes I used just because I am used to it). It’s a gel like cleanser, so I always used it as a second cleanser in my skincare routine. The product is really good; I saw results. The whole bottle lasted me about 4 months.

Repurchase? Yes!


MARIO BADESCU Glycolic Acid Toner

This toner is actually one of my best toners. when my face feels dull, or I have a lot of dark marks from pimples, I use this toner. It exfoliates the skin which helps to reduce the dark marks and then it also gives a refreshing feeling and makes the skin feel less dry and congested. I use this toner quite a lot. This is my 3rd bottle since I started using Mario Blades products. Even though I use other toners as well, this one I need on my shelf constantly.

Repurchase? Yep!

TRUSKIN's Tea Tree Clear Skin Serum

So I bought this serum from amazon as a substitute for Vitamin C serum, because it wasn't available at the time of purchase. I figured let me try a new brand and tea tree serum since its really good for acne. This particular one is concentrated with vitamin C, Retinol Salicylic Acid and more. Basically it has all the acne fighting acids that I needed at that time in my life. At first I didn't like the texture of it. It seemed watered down, and absorbed into my skin too quickly, compared to other serums I have used. But I kid you not this product was an aid in clearing my acne. Sometimes when I see a new pimple pop out I will get the serum and just let it sit on the acne until it dries off. The next daytime acne will either be gone, r would have reduced in size tremendously. I do like this product and think its a great one to have for acne.

Repurchase? Not today. Luckily for me, I have been able to clear up my acne and not really breaking out as much. So don't need it.

MURAD 's Rapid Collagen Infusion

This was a gift that came as the step 2 Treatment for the Murad AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser. If you follow my blog you will know I love collagen and the effect it has on my skin. So seeing this product made me happy, cos I already knew, collagen infusion = plump sexy youthful skin! ohh yea! This product did do its job, it was a kicker upper for my skin. The collagen amino acids will help combat aging skin & wrinkles for more youthful skin, which is a plus.

Repurchase? Yep! For the fact I just turned 30 and It's that time to start overloading on antiaging and antiwrinkle products. You know we don't want them lines when we get old, so we start preventing it now.
