Beauty Empties n4 : Mini Product Reviews

Hey all! Today it's time for another beauty empties post! I have accumulated quite a few products to review for you all so let's get started! Enjoy :)

My Little Pony Bubble Bath - Cute packaging, really yummy smell, it has all the components to be a good bubble bath! It doesn't have any sort of benefit for your skin though, this is purely for the enjoyment of having bubbles in your bath. Would repurchase

♥ Softlips Pure Lip Balm - All time favorite, review here. If I can find it, I Would repurchase

Bonne Bell Lip Smackers Lip Balm in Pineapple - A bit thicker than what I usually go for, but I loved the scent (random trivia : pineapple is my favorite fruit). Would repurchase

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo - It's hard for me to review shampoo because I feel like they all sort of perform the same. This one is no exception. May repurchase

Bath and Body Works Hand Soap in Winter Candy Apple - even though I think these hand soaps are drying, I really like the scents. This one is a particular favorite of mine. Would repurchase

Equate Eye Makeup Remover - This is supposed to be a dupe for the Neutrogena Oil Free makeup remover. It's similar but it stings my eyes a little bit. Wouldn't repurchase

Glysomed Hand Creamreviewed hereAlready repurchased

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Spray - Loved this for setting my makeup and getting rid of the powdery look on my skin. However, I don't agree with the 15$ price tag. Wouldn't repurchase

Batiste Dry Shampoo (travel-sized) - Reviewed here. Would repurchase

Bath and Body Works Candles - I have Frosted Cranberry (one of my favorite winter scents), Mahogany Teakwook (surprinsingly I really loved it), Carribean Escape (nice scent, but the scent throw is a little weak), Cinnamon Nut Bread (used to love this kind of scent but I'm a bit over it at this point). Would repurchase

Lip Products

Blistex Lip Medex Medicated Lip Balm - Not finished, but expired so I'm throwing it out. Love the feel of this (it tingles), the scent (smells like old school Noxezma cream to me) and how moisturizing it is. Kind of like the fact that it's in a jar too even though it's not the most hygienic. Would repurchase
Clinique Long Last Glosswear (sample) - Very sticky, not my favorite. It's not completely empty, but it's too old and it started smell odd so I'm throwing it out. Would not purchase
♥ Hard Candy Gloss in Uptown Girl - Also very sticky. Reviewed hereWouldn't repurchase

Face Products

Bioderma Hydrabio Serum (sample) - Nice and cooling on the skin, but it's a gel formula and it's not quite hydrating enough for my skin. Wouldn't purchase
Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream (Sample) - I've had this for ages. I can't remember how I felt about it before. Seems like a nice exfoliator, but I can't be sure. Might purchase
Bioderma Créaline H2O Eau Micellaire - Forever a favorite! Reviewed here. Already repurchased
Garnier Ultra Lift Night Cream - Pros : it's thick and moisturizing. Also, I love the heavy jar packaging. Cons : it's scented and I have sensitive skin. Verdict? Might repurchase 
Bioderma Sensibio AR Moisturizer (sample) - This cream has a medium thickness and applies smoothly. It's nice, but I'm not sure it does what it's supposed to. I'm on the fence about this.


♥ Maybelline Mascaras :  One by One > Mega Plush >Turbo Boost (from favorite to least favorites).  Mega Plush was fine, but only at first, Turbo Boost was meh and I loved the brush and formula on the One by One. One by One is the only one I would repurchase
♥ Toothpaste : Sensodyne Pro-Enamel > Crest Complete with Scope > Colgate Total. Only one of those that I'm not that fond of is the Colgate total because it's not whitening enough for me.
Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer - Can't remember the name of the scent, but it was bubble gum scented and I hated it Other than that it's a nice hand sanitizer. Would repurchase in different scent
Britney Spears Radiance Perfume (sample) - It's not really my cup of tea. Wouldn't purchase

♥ L'Oréal Revitalift > Garnier Fresh - I don't really use wipes anymore since I feel they are too abrasive for my skin. If I had to choose I'd rather purchase the L'Oréal wipes since they are softer.

Cotton Pads 
♥ Shiseido Facial Cotton Prevail Cotton Pads > Swisspers Supreme Cotton Pads > Dollarama Brands Premium Cotton Pads - These range from the best thing that's ever happened to my skin to cheap scratchy cottons for Dollorama. I never knew there could be such a difference in cotton pad quality. I'm totally sold one the Shiseido and would repurchase them
