Empties Part 1

I have been blogging (on and off) for years, and I was a little surprised to see that I have done an empties post! If you are unfamiliar with 'empties' post, it's where people share the recently empty containers of products they have used.

Here we are, my first empties post!
  • Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water- In my opinion Micellar Water is Micellar Water, they are all basically the same. I tend to buy whichever Micellar Water is on sale/has a lower price point. I will say that I do really like this product and find it to be slightly less drying than other Micellar Waters.
  • eSalon Every Rich Way Moisturizing Conditioner and eSalon Getting Rich Moisturizing Shampoo- I bought both of these products during a FabFitFun add ons sale, and I wasn't able to find the conditioner online, which is why it's not linked. Both products added moisture to my dry hair, making it look and feel healthier. I found it to be equal to either shampoo/conditioners, so I likely won't repurchase, unless it's part of a sale again.
  • Garnier All-In-1 Cleansing Micellar Water- Again, I think Micellar Water is Micellar Water. I do like this product (and am currently using it), but it is a bit drying to my overly dry skin. Nothing that a little moisturizer afterwards can't fix.
  • Got 2b Beach Trippin Salt-Infusion Waving Spray- This product has been discontinued and this was the last bottle that I had. This was my holy grail of hair products. It provided beautiful, beachy waves without the crunchy, sticky residue that other salt sprays have. 
  • Marrakesh Argan and Hemp Oil- My new hair holy grail product. I use this oil every time I wash my hair. It leaves my hair hydrated, shiny, smooth, and healthy. I love this product and highly recommend it. 
  • Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum- This product always seems to be sold out everywhere, so I haven't been able to repurchase. This serum left my skin looking smoother, and with an even tone.
  • Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb- I a, convinced that I have the driest skin in the world...I am constantly on the search for products that can hydrate my skin, and hydrate for longer than a couple of hours. This product is it! You can use it both in the morning and at night, it leaves my skin feel comfortable and hydrated for hours. This has been repurchased a number of times and is my current moisturizer. 
  • Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream- This is technically not an 'empty' but I've included it because I can't use it any more and threw it out. I really liked this product and used it daily. However, it reached a point where the product stopped coming out of the pump. If I shook the bottle, it would work, but then that stopped working. The pump wasn't clogged or just stopped working. It was too much of a hassle to the get the remaining product out, so I moved on.

There we have first empties! There were a lot of great products. The Osea Cream is the only one I wouldn't repurchase- great product, but a lot of money to spend on something where I can only use 2/3 of the product. The shampoo and conditioner is not necessarily something I wouldn't buy again, but it's not worth it to order online and have it shipped. I can, and have found, similar products that work just as well that I can pick up at Shoppers Drug Mart. All other products I have and will continue to repurchase.
