Welcome back, guys! I finished my first final today! Just a few days closer to my end of year vacation!!! Of course, you’re all here for my 4 Year Anniversary giveaway, and that’s at the bottom of the page! Before we get to that though, let’s do a quick run-through of all the products I emptied this month!
November empties! There were some hits and misses in this group of empties, but I'll put up a full post on Tuesday! • • • • #beautyblogger #bbloggers #empties #productempties #instabeauty #flatlaygoals #glossier #glossierrep #glossierpink #garnier #covergirl #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #teenbloggers #studentbloggers #collegebloggers #Collegebeauty #budgetbeauty #beautyonabudget
Glossier Invisible Shield
I already did a full post on my initial thoughts about the product, but continued use has proven what I felt. I started using this consistently after I ran out of my Missha sunscreen, and it was gone in less than a month. Before, I had only used it about 3-4 times, so for daily use to completely deplete it in less than a month is unacceptable for $35. I think it’s good that Glossier has reignited a discussion around sunscreen protection and made it “Instagram Cool”, and I’m glad it is a black girl friendly product, but it’s just not good for a budget beauty babe like myself.
Garnier Clean Plus Daily Exfoliating Scrub
This is the second bottle of this I’ve ever finished, and I love it just as much as when I first started using it 4 years ago! It’s a good drugstore facial scrub, it doesn’t irritate my skin, and it smells divine! I highly recommend it, and I’ll probably pick up another bottle soon.
Caudalie Facial Moisturizer
I got this in my Sephora birthday gift this year (along with a moisturizing serum that I also finished 2 days into December), and I used it as a replacement for my Priming Moisturizer before I got my Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel. Neither this moisturizer nor its accompanying serum was super special, and they had a very earthy smell, which I’m not a huge fan of. I was glad to have finished it so I can continue using that Neutrogena gel!
Covergirl Oh Sugar Lipbalm
Ahhh this lip balm has been such a love/hate relationship for me! I got it last year in my first Influenster Voxbox and I initially didn’t like it. However, it grew on me like crazy, especially the subtle pink stain it managed to leave on my deep-toned lips. On Black Friday this year, I went to reup on this color and another one in red and found out they’re being discontinued because they were taken from Ulta’s website and they were on sale for $3.50 in store, so I’m def gonna go instore and snatch some more up.
Glossier Body Hero Cream
I went through this bottle in about a month and a half. Unlike the Glossier sunscreen though, there was a LOT of cream in this bottle, I just used a crap ton especially with the changing of seasons and weather fluctuations down here! I loved the subtle pink shimmer it left on my skin and the smell! Just read my whole review because I could go on an on about this stuff. I’ve already got a new one coming in the mail tomorrow!
