Over the course of this spring, I mostly went through skincare products since I haven’t been doing my makeup as much as I’d like to.
Without further ado, here are my empties for Spring of 2021.
Cleen Beauty Rosehip Jelly Face Cleanser
Price: $7 (full size)
Repurchase: Already did
Details: Despite not thinking this was going to be a favorite product, I ended up loving this! I’m so glad I gave it a shot. It’s perfect for my dryer skin and gives me a solid base to start with!
Bliss Drench & Quench Cream to Water Hydrator
Repurchase: I will Be Soon
Details: Can we say Holy Grail? I’m trying to find a less expensive dupe for it but so far nothing has been as good. So when my current moisturizer is done I’ll be swapping back to this one.
Fourth Ray Beauty Mellow Milk Mist
Price: $12 (full size)
Details: While this isn’t the absolute worst facial mist ever, I don’t love it either. It felt like I had oil on my face and the texture of this spray wasn’t great. I was trying to use it as a toner but that’s not the best use for it. I don’t use refreshing mists much though so I didn’t have much of a use for it.
The Ordinary Caffeine Solution
Repurchase: Already Did
Details: Combining this serum with a moisturizing eye cream majorly improves my dark circles! The bottle lasts forever and is extremely inexpensive so that’s also amazing. I’m a huge fan!
Bliss Makeup Melt Oil Free Remover Wipes
Repurchase: Most Likely
Details: I’m definitely a fan of these makeup wipes, and moreso than the ones I’m currently using. I’ve come to enjoy using a makeup wipe to remove my makeup, though I definitely want to try other types. These are the best I’ve tried so far though.
Cleen Beauty Grapefruit Water Gel
Price: $10 (full size)
Repurchase: Probably not, but it’s a viable option
Details: While this is a solid product, I definitely prefer my Bliss moisturizer. The texture on this one isn’t as melty and it doesn’t sink into my skin quite as well. I’d use it if I couldn’t get the Bliss product, but I prefer the Bliss one.
Maybelline Browfast Sculpt in Soft Brown
Repurchase: Probably not
Details: I’m exploring different brow gels to find one that really wows me, and thus far this one really hasn’t. It’s not bad, but it’s not blowing me away either. I probably wouldn’t buy it again simply because of how little product you get for the price.
elf Cosmetics Bounce Back Jelly Cleanser
Repurchase: Not unless I have to
Details: This is an acceptable product but honestly I can’t stand the smell of coconut. And it’s very strongly scented. I also suspect it clogged my pores slightly, which wasn’t fun to deal with.
Fourth Ray Beauty The Daily Eye Cream
Price: $15 (full size)
Details: This is just too thick. It caused milia under my eyes and I was not a fan and I absolutely wouldn’t buy it again.
Cleen Beauty Hibiscus Coconut Glow Mist
Repurchase: Already did
Details: This is my new holy grail toner and I love it even more than I loved the Mario Badescu one. It smells and feels amazing.
There we have it, my Spring 2021 Empties! I can’t wait to see what I end up finishing this Summer. Hopefully I’ll use my makeup a bit more! What was your favorite empty product from this list? Have you tried any before?
