Skin Care Empties & Would I Repurchase

Hey guys 😀

So I’m kind of trying to be on a no buy at the moment. That means trying to stop my self buying heap loads of new products especially skin care until the ones I have are all used up. I have so many products and they keep on piling in, thanks to my sister hooking me up with so many amazing freebies, so instead of letting them sit at the back of my skin care drawer I’m trying to use them up. Plus it feels great to finish a product, kind of feels like an accomplishment!! So I thought I would share some of my empty products and let you know if i’d be willing to re- purchase.

Body Shop Honeymania Exfoliant Creme

I have to say that I’m a real sucker for body scrubs. I have uber dry skin all year round, especially on my legs and elbows so these type of products are a god send. I find some to be far too abrasive and rather uncomfortable to use and that’s why I love the ones from the body shop. Especially the Exfoliant Creme line. The scent was ok but nothing amazing. Loved how it scrubbed off the dead skin cells and left my skin moisturized.

Would I repurchase?

I would definitely pick up another one of these scrubs, maybe in another scent just to switch it up. But that’ll have to wait because at the moment I’m using the Pink Victoria Secret Warm and Cozy Body Wash and Scrub which is amazing.

Urban Decay Melt Down Make Up Remover

The urban Decay Melt Down Make Up Remover is the best make up remover I’ve ever tried. It removes every trace of make up and leaves the skin feeling super smooth and supple, never tried anything like it before. It has a really creamy texture and feels moisturizing on the skin.

Would I repurchase?

Hell yeah I would. I’m just waiting till I go to Cali in May to pick one up, or two 😀

Nars Optimal Brightening Concentrate

I recently finished my Nars brightening serum. This is a great little product to use before your daily moisturizer to add brightness to the complexion without becoming a disco ball. The texture in smooth and the consistency is light so its rather pleasant to have on.

Would I repurchase?

I’m not sure to be honest, its a great little product but there are so many serums on the market at the moment and I love trying out new things so I think I’ll wait on this one.

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40

I’m definitely one of those girls who tries to wear SPF on a daily basis even in the winter. I’m fair skinned with red head features like freckles so my skin is pretty sensitive to the sun. I mean i can totally get a tan, but it takes me a long time and I’m susceptible to sun burn if i don’t watch out. Plus i want to derail any skin damage while i have the chance. Really love the Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer with SPF 40. Its light weight while moisturizing and protecting from those harsh rays.

Would I Repurchase?

I love Josie Maran and swear by her Argan Oil, among other great products, so I would definitely pick this bad boy up again. Unfortunately its not available in Denmark, and Europe in general, as far as I’m aware, so this will have to wait till I’m in Cali in May.

Dermalogica Age Smart Age Reversal Eye Complex and Overnight Repair Serum

Lastly Ive used up the Dermologica Age Smart Eye cream and Overnight Repair Serum. OMG these two are the best skin care products I’ve ever used. The over night repair serum is a miracle in a bottle. I used it every night and in the morning I would see a dramatic difference in my face in terms of a smoother texture, and any scarring, redness or irritation from breakouts and the like drastically diminished. The eye cream is also a wowzer, light weight yet highly moisturizing.

Would I repurchase?

For sure the over night repair serum. There are loads of night oils/serums on the market and this is the best one. I’m trying to use up my Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate which is good but definitely not as good as the Dermalogica. But once its up I’m going for it, even though the price is steep, its totally worth it. This one will also be a Cali purchase, so much cheaper than in Europe.

Well guys and dolls those are some  of the products I’ve used up recently. Have you used any of these, wold you repurchase them too? Otherwise what have you used up, anything you swear by?
