Skincare Empties May 2017

Vol 1

 

Showing my empties is something new for me and this is my first time posting this. I always like seeing the end of the month beauty roundups that bloggers and YouTubers share of products they have used. So I am a bit late to the party but I’m trying a few new things.

As much as I love using skincare products there is a feeling of such accomplishment when I have used a product to the end. It’s almost like I’ve been extra productive.

This month my empties are mainly sheet masks and only a few full sized products. It’s a long post so chuck on a mask and lets get started.

Natio Aromatherapy Rosewater Chamomile Gentle Skin Toner

Have I repurchased: Not yet as I have way too many toners in my stash and I want to get through them before continuing to purchase more. 

Would I repurchase: Yes! I really love Natio’s products and how lovely they feel on my skin. 

What am I using as a replacement: I am currently using a rotation of Happy Skincare Tickled Pink Toner –  Innisfree The Minimum Toner – Pixi Glow Tonic

Natio Aromatherapy Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser

Have I repurchased: Not yet but the same thing as my toners, I have quite a few cleansers in my backup stash that I really need to use first.

Would I repurchase: In a heartbeat, I may end up repurchasing earlier than I expected.

What am I using as a replacement: I am rotating between Make P:rem cleanser mask pack – Pixi mud cleanser – Cosrx Good Morning Gel Cleanser – Happy Skincare 3 Cheers Cleansing Oil.

Etude House 0.2 sheet mask set

Have I repurchased: No, although there are a few from this line I haven’t tried yet to make the set complete. I will have a new review post coming up in the next couple of weeks.

Would I repurchase: No, after trying the whole set back to back I didn’t really see as many pros that would make me want to re-try this line again.

What am I using as a replacement: I am using a variety of sheet masks from different brands and skin concerns. 


Dr Jart+ Clearing Solution sheet mask

Have I repurchased: Although I have only used this mask once I really enjoyed it. Luckily I purchased the set in a box of 5.

Would I repurchase: Yes, once I get through some of my sheet masks collection I will repurchase this box as well as the other three or four masks from the line.

What am I using as a replacement: A variety of different sheet masks and brands. 


Anatomicals Trio Wash Off Masks

Have I repurchased: No, I have only been able to locate these on ASOS website and I’m not really in the market to purchase anything from ASOS at this time.

Would I repurchase: Yes I would, I am hoping to find them available to purchase from somewhere in Australia. I may end up placing a Lush order for their Cupcake fresh mask as it’s similar to Anatomicals chocolate mask.

What am I using as a replacement: I am a huge mask addict so I have about 20 masks that I use on a rotation.

Innisfree Coconut Bio Cellulose masks Hydrating/Soothing/Nourishing

Have I repurchased: I haven’t repurchased but am looking forward to buying these next time I see them on sale.

Would I repurchase: Yes, next time I see them on sale I’ll give them another go. I will be writing a post for these 3 sheet masks in the near future. 

What am I using as a replacement: I don’t have any coconut bio-cellulose masks but I do have a few bio-cellulose sheet mask that I am looking forward to using. 


Elions Copper Peptide Intensive Mask

Have I repurchased: I purchased a few of these sheet masks when I ordered my Derminator device. I only plan to use these sheet masks on the days I use the Derminator, which is about every 6 weeks.

Would I repurchase: Yes, after my first impression it felt so nice on my skin after my Derminator session.

What am I using as a replacement: Nothing as yet since I only plan to use it for a speciality routine.  


Mediheal sheet masks 

I.P.I. Lightmask Hydro Nude & NMF Aquaring Ampoule Mask

Have I repurchased: I haven’t re-purchased either of these masks. I originally purchased them in a pack of 10 which will last a while since I rotate my sheet masks with other brands and skin concerns.

Would I repurchase: I would if I found them on sale or during one of my sheet masks haul. But I wouldn’t go out of my way to repurchase at this moment.

What am I using as a replacement: I use a variety of masks that I use in conjunction with these. 


ETUDE House sheet masks 

I need you Olive & I need you Green Tea

Have I repurchased: I have repurchased these sheet masks but I buy them in a big mutli-variety pack.

Would I repurchase: Yes, I love the feel and fit of this line of masks.

What am I using as a replacement: I use a variety of masks from different brands and skin concerns.


Missha Pure Source sheet masks 

Acai Berry & Bamboo & Aloe

Have I repurchased: I haven’t repurchased since this pack , mutliI purchased a 10 pack of Mimulti-masks.

Would I repurchase: Yes, I love the feel and fit of these masks. I ordered these from eBay since I wasn’t able to find a place that would ship to Australia.

What am I using as a replacement: I have an embarrassing amount of sheet masks in my stash so I don’t plan to buy any more anytime soon. I say that and then next month I’ll do a sheet mask haul. I am hopeless trying to stick to ‘no buys’ or using my back stock.

 

 

Are you like me and also like to know about other people’s empties? Or am I the only weirdo who likes to hear trash talk? 

I’d love to know what others do, please leave me a comment.
