July 2017 Empties Love it, Like it, or Leave it

I wasn’t able to finish too many items last month since I barely wore any makeup. But I was able finish quite a few skincare products, unfortunately  I’m saving  a bunch of those for my upcoming blogs. Definitely keep an eye out for those. Now onto the empties!

Cargo Blu_Ray Activating Face Primer
20170809_200827.jpg

-$32 @ Ulta
-One of the worst primer I have tried
-Barely smooth out my skin
-I was still able to see my pores
-Leaves a slight tacky feel
-Doesn’t help my makeup last any longer, if anything it shorten it. My makeup just slides off my face
-Overall: LEAVE IT!

Clinique High Impact Mascara & Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

20170809_200637.jpg
-Clinique High Impact $18 for full Size
-MUFE Smoky Extravagant $12 for deluxe size and $24 for full size
-I like to use these two mascaras together for remarkably long and voluminous lashes. Each mascara is great on their own but together they are just amazing!
-Overall: LOVE them both

No7 Boots Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion Exfoliator

20170809_200803
-$18 @ Target
-Makes my skin smoother and more radiant
-I wouldn’t say I look younger like it claims but fresher
-I use this 2-3 times a week and it didn’t dry out my skin
-Overall: I Like it. It works great and it’s an affordable alternative to the Bliss Micro Magic Microdermabrasion Treatment, $48 @ Ulta and Sephora.

 

 

Murad Clarifying Toner

-$24 at Ulta
-Great for those with acne
-It kept my acne at bay
-It eliminates oil and tighten pores
-I used this 2 -3 times a day and it doesn’t dry out my skin
-Overall: I like this toner, this was actually my second bottle. For those with acne prone skin or really oily skin, definitely try it out.

 

 

 

 


Tony Moly Natural Green Moisture Foam Cleanser with Shea Butter

20170809_200546.jpg
– ~$20 for two @ Ulta
-Lathers up nicely
-Easy to wash off
-Has a nice scent
-Didn’t see any difference in my skin
-Overall: LEAVE IT! It didn’t help moisturize any of my dry patches. Also I didn’t like how it left my skin feeling rigid. There are way better cleansers out there for a better price.

 

First Aid Beauty Skin rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay
20170809_200454

-$12 for deluxe size and $24 for a full size @ Sephora
-Has a fresh/invigorating scent
-Help remove excess oil
-The deluxe size lasted about 2-3 weeks of use
-Overall: I Like it. It does a great job cleaning my skin. Also it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I’m planning to purchase the full size whenever I finish all of my other cleanser.
