Which beauty products from my recent empties will I immediately repurchase?

Here are my recent #beautyempties! Let’s dive into which products I loved and which ones I maybe didn’t love as much.

Hair Care Empties:
1. #Pantene Daily Moisture Shampoo – This #cheapdrugstore find never disappoints! The smell is fresh and my hair feels smooth and looks shiny after use. #haircare
2. #Guhl “Frisch & Fruchtig” Peach Conditioner – My friend from Germany sent me this nostalgic #conditioner. The peach scent is still great, but the formula is thin and watered down. A bit of a let-down. #haircare
3. #Batiste dry shampoo – A staple in my hair care routine. It’s reliable and works well. #haircare
4. #Loreal Preference 9.5A Hair Dye – I’ve used this twice and it always delivers great results. #haircare
5. #DermaE Restore & Repair Deep Conditioning Treatment Mask – Love this mask! It’s thick, deeply conditioning, and smells like lemongrass. #haircare

Body Care Empties:
1. #Kneipp bubble bath – Hands down, the best bubble bath! It smells delicious and foams up nicely with essential oils. #bodycare
2. #StIves Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash – This one makes my skin super soft, isn’t drying, and smells like sweet oatmeal. A win! #bodycare
3. #Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Salve – Fantastic hand lotion that smells lightly like peppermint. Also great for the feet! #bodycare
4. #BathEssence Less Stress by Lidl with Eucalyptus & Rosemary – This bath foam is amazing! It foams well, super affordable, and has real essential oils. #bodycare
5. #Ameliorate Intensive Hand Therapy – Very moisturizing, though slightly greasy. The scent is a bit strange and reminds me of self-tanner. #bodycare
6. #Algemarin Shower Gel – This refreshing shower gel is a favorite, but unfortunately not available in the US. #bodycare

Skin Care Empties:
1. #dAlba Italian White Truffle Mild Skin Balancing Vegan Toner – A gentle and hydrating toner with a mild pH. Feels soapy but in a good way. #skincare
2. #DermaE Radiance Toner with Glycolic Acid & Rooibos – A gentle exfoliating toner that helps with skin renewal. Avoid the eye area if you’re sensitive. Great dupe for Pixi Glow Tonic! #skincare
3. #DermaE Vitamin C Concentrated Serum – One of my favorite Vitamin C serums. It’s easy to apply, lightweight, and helps even out skin tone. #skincare
4. #Kiehls Retinol Fast-Release Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum – A great serum, but the packaging is complicated and can lead to product waste. Still, it feels lightweight and smooth on the skin. #skincare
5. #Kiehls Super Multi-Corrective Anti-Aging Eye Cream – Love this lightweight eye cream! It smooths and hydrates the under-eye area, perfect to wear under concealer. #skincare
6. #Medicube Deep Vita C Serum – This Vitamin C serum feels luxurious and silk-like. I love the packaging, with 3 separate bottles to keep the formula fresh until use. #skincare

Makeup Empties:
1. #BEAUTYFORCERTAIN Whole Lotta Mascara – Not great on its own, but layering it over another mascara gives amazing volume. Dried out quickly though. #makeup
2. #Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara – An old-time favorite with a small brush that separates lashes well. Gives a fantastic natural look. #makeup
3. Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Lash Enhancer Lash Serum for Eyelash Growth – Unfortunately, no noticeable lash growth after using this for 2 months. Waste of time. #makeup
4. #NARS Afterglow Lip Balm – Laguna Collection – A nice tinted lip balm, but not worth the high price tag. #makeup

That’s it for my recent beauty empties! #productreview #empties

Here is another trash post! All my recent beauty empties- which ones did I love and which ones maybe not so much?

Here are my hair care empties:

1. Pantene Daily Moisture Shampoo // Amazon

This cheap drugstore pick-up has never let me down! I really like the fresh smell and how my hair feels after! My hair feels smooth and looks shiny. 

2. Guhl “Frisch & Fruchtig” Peach Conditioner //not available in US

My friend from Germany sent me this because I asked for it. I used to use this conditioner when I was still living in Germany as a teenager. Still love the peach scent but I was surprised how thin this formula is. I felt like I needed to use so much of this product because it was so thin and watered down. It was a bit of a let-down!

3. Batiste dry shampoo // Amazon
4. Loreal Preference 9.5A (yes 2x)// Amazon
5. Derma E Restore & Repair Deep Conditioning Treatment Mask // Amazon

Love this hair mask! Very thick and deep conditioning and I love the lemongrass scent!

Here are my body care empties:

1. Kneipp bubble bath // Amazon

Hands down: Kneipp makes the best bubble baths! Smell delicious with essential oils and foams up nicely!

2. St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash // Amazon

Really love this one! Makes my skin feel super soft, is not drying and smells truly like sweet Oatmeal. For the win!

3. Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve // Sephora // Ulta

This is a fantastic deeply moisturizing hand lotion. It smells very light like peppermint. Works also great on feet. Love.

4. Bath Essence Less Stress by Lidl with Eucalyptus & Rosemary // Lidl

This is great y’all! Foams amazing and is super affordable, with real essential oils. Grab it, if you can!

5. Ameliorate Intensive Hand Therapy // Amazon

This is a very moisturizing hand cream- almost a tiny bit greasy. If you have super dry hands, you will love it. However, the scent is a bit strange to me: it reminds me on the scent of self-tanners (which I can’t stand lol).

6. Algemarin Shower Gel // not available in US

Love this. So super fresh. I will shut up know, because you can’t get it here anyway lol.

Here are my skin care empties:

1. d’Alba Italian White Truffle Mild Skin Balancing Vegan Toner // Amazon

A very gentle toner that has a mild pH- it feels almost a bit soapy and very hydrating. Really good!


2. Derma E Radiance Toner with Glycolic Acid & Rooibos // Amazon

This toner is a gentle exfoliator. Feels fresh and helps the skin to renew. Skip the skin around the eyes if you are sensitive. Great dupe for the Pixi Glow tonic! 😉

3. Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum // Amazon

One of my favorite Vitamin C serums out there! Very easy to apply and does not interfere with my makeup. Feels lightweight on my skin and helps to get rid of uneven skin tone! It’s a win!

4. Kiehl’s Retinol Fast-Release Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum // Sephora // Ulta

This is super fresh Retinol however, the process of getting the retinol in the tube was so complicated! You have to flip the bottle upside down, remove the bottom cap, twist the retinol capsule onto the bottom of the bottle, push the button down… I messed this up and wasted some product which is sad- especially at this price point. I hope they work on this and make the process a bit easier. However, the serum is amazing. Feels very lightweight and smooth!

5. Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Anti-Aging Eye Cream // Sephora // Ulta

Love this lightweight eye cream! You only need a tiny bit and it lasts a long time. It has a gel-like consistency and I love it under my concealer! Makes my under-eye are look smoother and hydrated.

6. Medicube Deep Vita C Serum // Amazon

This is a fantastic Vitamin C serum! It feels like silk. Super fresh and I love that they package this in 3 little bottles so every bottle stays super fresh until you open it.

Here are my makeup empties:

1. BEAUTY FOR CERTAIN whole lotta mascara

This mascara is not so good on its own because it creates a ton of volume but does not separate lashes well. However, if you first apply another mascara and THEN use this as a topper, the results are Woah! Big Lashes with a ton of volume. It dried out fast though.

2. Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara // Sephora // Ulta

An old time-favorite mascara! Love the small brush that separates my lashes well. Lashes look fantastic but still in a natural way. Cute packaging too!

3. Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Lash Enhancer Lash Serum for Eyelash Growth // Amazon

I was hoping that my lashes would grow with this a bit. However, I have applied this for 2 months every single morning and I took before and after pictures. Unfortunately absolutely nothing has happened, except that I wasted my time lol. In the trash you go.

4. NARS Afterglow Lip Balm – Laguna Collection // Sephora // Ulta

I mean: this is a tinted lip balm! Was it nice? Yes! Would I repurchase? No! I am definitely not paying $28 for a tinted lip balm (this was actually a free birthday present from Sephora hahaha)

There you have all my recent beauty empties!
