All Used Up July 2017

another list of empties, here we go.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Classic: I super hate the smell, like toilet cleaner or something. But quality good. Will buy other scents now.

Two Clinique items, first the airbrush concealer which I already repurchased. Then the mild clarifying lotion, which I would have repurchased, but they changed the formula. It now contains witch hazel. My face does not like witch hazel, so I had to go through the hassle of finding a different product. Boo, Clinique. Don’t fix things that ain’t broken!

Funnily enough my last toner was by Clinique too, then I decided these things were useless and went years without one. Then I realized toners never worked because they had way too much alcohol content. I found Clinique’s mild clarifying lotion which didn’t have any alcohol, but salicylic acid and was nicely acidic. It worked wonders. Of course they had to change it.

Balea Anti-Falten Augencreme Q 10: So far I liked every Balea eyecream I used. Might repurchase at later date.

And last, two items from Rituals. The Ritual of Dao handcream smells great. Dao is my preferred scent of theirs. However, that’s as good as it gets. As a handcream it feels thick and doesn’t sink in properly. But it doesn’t give the skin any moisture. Will not repurchase or try any other of their lines. Especially since this is only 75ml for about € 11? Nope. Might get a Dao linen spray instead. I also have the room scenter sticks.

And the second item is a sample of their sensitive skin lotion. This is a regular face cream with lots of aloe vera. I used it at night and it was in fact the best skin care item of Rituals I tried. It gave a good amount of moisture and the skin looked fresh the next day. I will not buy a full size, because firstly I have lots of stuff to use up and then I also prefer for my face cream to pack some power in addition to just moisture (like AHA, BHA, …).

Those were my empties of the last month. I think it’s a pretty good amount for a summer month. I don’t know if there will be empties in August, if not I’ll sort through my old makeup and see what needs to be chucked.
