I Emptied *another* Six Skincare Products…

“What am I doing with my life besides
working and buying skincare products?”

LOOK WHO’S BACK with another empties post. Ya girl right here. Idk about y’all but I love when someone posts an empties blog post – I am all about the reviews and finding out if people want to repurchase something. It feeds some kind of drug to my mind like, “Oooo wonder if that face mask made a difference” or “That toner put in WURK but is it worth the price tag?” Lemme click and find out.

So I hope that’s what you came here for! Cause I’m about to give it to ya.

First up, the Pixi Glow Tonic – can be found at Target for $15.00 (tho you can get a better value for the 250 ML for $29.00 just FYI).
I love this stuff – it’s a solid product. Might not be life-changing, but for some reason I can’t get my hands off it. I began using this product and kept a four-week diary on how it changed my skin. If you’re interested in those results, I’d suggest reading that!
Would I repurchase? Already have!

Next I had a sample of the Mint Pear C Your Youth Vitamin C serum – $39.00
This product was good, but I’m currently loving another serum that I’m preparing to write aboutImage result for prayer emoji
My thoughts on this are that it’s not bad, and the price is relatively decent for other competitive face serums on the market. I do love the feeling of applying this to my face as it sinks into my skin and traps in the hydration. I wake up in the morning and still feel the product.

Would I repurchase? Actually, maybe (had I not found this other serum).

First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser with red clay – $24.00
I looooooooved this cleanser while I had it. It’s rather luxurious and created a thick lather on the face, which I loved. My skin was left feeling refreshed, clean, and smooth. It was a great feeling. I’d use this about 2-3 times a week (as I didn’t want to overdo it). If you’re still interested, I’d recommend checking out the full review so you can decide for yourself if it’s worth it!

Would I repurchase? Yeah! For sure.

Tarte Maracuja Oil – travel size is $16 and large size is $48
I have raved about this godsend before and I’ll rave again. It’s amazing. Hydrating without being sticky/greasy, sinks right into the skin, provides a deep hydration that lasts through the night and into the next day. I rave even more in my full review for those wanting additional benefits. And then again in “The Best of Ipsy.”

Would I repurchase? Already have like 3 times!

South Mane Under Eye Gels – pack of 3 for $9.00
I think this product could be easily looked past and fall into the “underrated” category. These were a good, solid set of eye masks. They were hydrating, stuck fairly well to the skin (tho they will slide around if you’re walking all over or dancing to Drake), and you’re left with a smooth and moisturized under eye area. You are supposed to keep them on for 30 mins, which is a bit much. But honey make yourself a cup of tea, turn on Friends for the 1,000,000th time and relax!
Now that I go investigate the price of these online, I think I’ll buy a pack or two. Well worth the price and I enjoy the process as well as the outcome.

Would I repurchase? About to.

Lastly are my trusty ol’ Kirkland brand Daily Facial Wipes (makeup remover) – they’re selling 150 on Amazon for $24.99
These are a solid choice and won’t steer you wrong. However… however – if you have sensitive skin you might not like how “rough” these are. I find they kind of tug at the skin but they do cleanse away your makeup. I go in with a face wash after using this anyways, but they do a good job removing the first layer. Are there better ones out there? Sure. Will these get the job done? Yes.

Would I repurchase? Already have – thank you, Costco.

So those are my skincare empties! Anyone else have the same ones? What are your thoughts? Are you intrigued? Have you tried any? Let me know below so we can chat!

REVIEW: First Aid Beauty Red Clay deep cleanser

“Thank you Ipsy for granting me another holy grail skincare product.”

IMG_20171001_165147

This cleanser is good. In both quality and price-wise. The First Aid Beauty red clay deep cleanser retails for $24.00 full size (which is 4.7 oz of product). That’s a lot of face cleanser, and you don’t need to use this every single day – unless you want to.

It comes out of the tube as a gel, but once you add water it quickly foams into a silky lather on your face. Not a foamy lather, but a silky one, like it’s replenishing moisture while drawing out your excess oils.

The red clay cleanser works to target:

  • oiliness
  • blemishes/blackheads
  • & pores

Here’s how I’d recommend its use based on your skin type:

  • once weekly for those with normal skin
  • every other night for those with combination/oily skin
  • OR the “recommended” by First Aid Beauty is as much as twice daily for those with oily skin and blemishes they’d like to target

I have been using this cleanser every other night for two weeks now, and I have loved the way my skin feels after each use. *My skin is oily and I do have problem areas, but wouldn’t consider my skin to be covered in blemishes.* It provides a very deep clean yet is gentle at the same time. I don’t feel like it misses any trace of makeup, as my face feels completely refreshed and squeaky clean after each use. I almost feel like it does the work of a toner yet lacks the “drying” properties we often see in toners.

Bottom line: would I repurchase this? Definitely!
I think the price is right and the product is great. I am very intrigued by my first First Aid Beauty skincare item and this might be the gateway into trying other products.

Have you tried any items from this line of skincare? What are your thoughts? Any holy grail’s I need to get my hands on? Let me know in the comments below!
