March Empties 2015: Makeup, Skincare & the Usual


Will I repurchase any of the products featured in my March Empties? You know the drill, (Y) is “Yes”, (M) is “Maybe” or (N) is “No”.


March Empties – Makeup


March Empties 2015 Makeup

Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation (M) (Full Review): Just kidding…this product was in last month’s empties – it must have snuck its way back into my empties bin somehow – or I forgot to dump it. :/

Crabtree and Evelyn Pomegranate Lip Butter (Y): Featured in my Canada/French Pharmacy Haul, this creamy lip butter lived in my nightstand for months. Unfortunately, I can’t purchase Crabtree and Evelyn products in The Bahamas but I will pick up more of these if I ever have the opportunity.

Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Concealer Concealer (Y) (Full Review): Although I did speak positively of this concealer in my review, I still think I underestimated how much I would love this stuff.  I had to take a photo to show you guys how I dug it all out.


March Empties 2015


*Too Faced LashGasm Mascara (Y) (Full Review): Nostalgia and results make this a mascara I’ll probably repurchase for the rest of my life.

Makeup Forever Smoky Lash Mascara (N): I always seem to have samples of this one. It’s not my favorite and doesn’t do much for my lashes to be honest.

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation (Y) (Full Review): This is another product which I tried to get every last drop out of. I need to invest in one of those makeup spatulas.

Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara (M): Featured this mascara sample on Instagram (including applied to lashes), it gives great volume.


March Empties – Skincare

March Empties 2015 Skincare

Neutrogena Naturals Makeup Remover Wipes (M): This new, “natural” version is less saturated than the original makeup wipes (in the blue packaging). They work just as well though and have a pleasant, non-offensive smell.

*Ole Henriksen the Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths (Y): I don’t think I’ve reviewed these cloths in particular, but I do have reviews of the Grease Relief and Nurture Me versions.  Anyway, all of the Ole Henriksen cleansing cloths work well but what keeps me coming back to the original is the the divine, citrus smell.

*Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel (M): This belonged to Mr. Bear. He still prefers his Kiehls, but will use this in a pinch.

L’Occitane Immortelle Essential Water (Full Review) (N): Pleasant but didn’t wow me enough to purchase a full size.

It Cosmetics No. 50 Serum Anti-Aging Primer (M) (Full Review): If I got this on sale again, I’d probably repurchase. It’s a lovely primer that does hydrate and feels pleasant on the skin.

*Radical Skincare Peptide Infused Antioxidant Serum (M) (Full Review): I ended up really liking this serum – but the price just gets me.

Fresh Seaberry Facial Oil (Y) (Full Review): A beautiful facial oil that helps calm redness and reduces the severity of breakouts.

Sephora Collection Super Regenerating Oil-Serum (Y) (Full Review): The texture of this oil is its selling point, feels more like a serum and sinks weightlessly into skin.

*Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil (Y) (Full Review): A supremely luxurious oil that leaves the skin feeling spectacular. Worth every penny.

Clinique All About Eyes (N): A gel-like eye moisturizer that promises to de-puff. I need something a little more rich for my dry under-eye area.

*Kate Somerville True Lash – Eye Makeup Remover (Y) (Full Review): As a makeup remover it is one of the best I’ve used. As a lash enhancing product, it is also seems to work if you are realistic about your expectations. My review has before and after photos so you can judge for yourself. 🙂


March Empties – Body and Hands

March Empties 2015 Body and Hands

Bath and Body Works Body Washes (Y): Always repurchase. Not a huge fan of the Wild Honey Suckle scent though.

L’Occitane *Almond Shower Oil and Almond Hand Cream (Y): The entire Almond line from L’Occitane is divine if you ask me.

Philosophy Lotions in Cranberry and *Fresh Cream (Y): Both of these creams came in a holiday set, but you can purchase Fresh Cream, a delightful grown-up vanilla scent, year round.


March Empties – Haircare

March Empties 2015 Haircare

ULTA Moisturizing Shampoo (N): Nothing spectacular about this.

Living Proof Satin Hair Serum (Y) (Full Review): I need a full size now! Love this stuff.

  1. Whew, that’s a lot of empties! I have that Covergirl foundation too, and I agree, it’s great.

    1. I’m holding off on buying another until I get through some more foundations…that and the fact there are so many new ones I want to try!

  2. Love these posts! Love the sound of the Sephora Oil Serum, in particular! xx

    1. The Sephora Oil is a good one…and for the price, it’s fantastic! xo

  3. Almond shower oil! I just finished another bottle, but I think I’ll wait till the weather cools down again to repurchase. That reminds me more of autumn/winter 🙂 Also, that’s a whole lot of empties! Great job!

    1. Lol. Thanks, hun, I try. Almond shower oil…is the best…I agree, love it for the “winter” hehe.

  4. Wow! A lot of great empties! I need to try the Pomegranade Lip Butter 🙂 xo’s

    1. The lip butter is a good one, the texture is heavy but nice for overnight use. 🙂

  5. I love the sound of the too faced Mascara, I’ve heard a lot of lovely things about it too 😛 you make me really want to buy it hehe 😀

    Serene xoxo


    1. Well then we’re even cause you make me want to really buy things too, hehe. Jokes aside, Too Faced lashgasm is a good mascara – its a rubber brush but it was one of the first mascaras that made be realise what a great mascara could do. 🙂 xo

  6. I love that CoverGirl foundation. My goodness, you loved the heck out of that Yves Rocher concealer!

    1. Hehe. I did love the heck out of it, didn’t I? I think empties really help me realize what I actually loved. 🙂 xo

  7. Wow so many empties! It reminds me to take out my Covergirl foundation and show it some love

    1. Yes, girl, definitely show the Covergirl 3 in 1 some love, especially as it’s (hopefully) getting warmer, now? 🙂

    Hi there, I love your blog. Thanks for all the skincare reviews. I was hoping to find something on Fresh (I did), but also found a lot more. Think I will give Ole Hendrikson a try – it seems like a really good line, and I’ve tried and loved the Vit C serum. Keep up the good work! 🙂

    1. Aww, thank you Vivian. Your comment made my day! I’m so happy to hear that the reviews on this little blog of mine have been helpful and I hope that you enjoy exploring the Ole Henriksen brand, I love his stuff! 🙂
