Empties Post Volume X: May 2013
Shave with Benefits Shaving Foam in Pomegranate + Mango (reviewed here): Still a favorite! This is such an amazing product, and it leaves your skin so silky smooth and moisturized!
Koh Gen Do Cleansing Water (reviewed here): I love this cleansing water, and it is by far my favorite. I will definitely be repurchasing it. It does a phenomenal job removing every trace of makeup and leaves your skin soft.
Rock Your Hair: Big Hair Rocks Shampoo and Big Hair Rocks Conditioner (reviewed here): These are fantastic products, and the bottles are so cute that I am keeping them as travel refills!
Mary Kay Mini Eye Makeup Remover: I somehow ended up with a small size sample of this makeup remover, and the first time that I tried it it made my eyes sting, but I have pretty sensitive eyes. I ended up using it to remove makeup from arm swatches, and it did a great job.
Reviva Labs Peel Light Skin Peel (reviewed here): This is one of my very favorite face peels- it is so gentle, effective, and fun to use. I will definitely get another one!
REN Multi-Tasking After Shave Balm: My husband used and loved this sample, but left enough in the bottle when he tossed it in the recycle bin that I was able to try a bit while cleaning out the tube. It is very nice stuff.
REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask (reviewed here): LOVE LOVE LOVE. I continue to use and love this highly effective mask. It dissolves dead skin with amazing efficacy, and leaves your skin clean, clear, and gorgeous!
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers SPF 30 (reviewed here): I love this stuff, and can't believe that I actually finished it. It imparts nice natural coverage with enough radiance to give skin a beautiful healthy glow. I have a huge stash of foundations, BB Creams, and Tinted Moisturizers that I need to use, but once I get through some of these products I will likely repurchase this.
Ole Henriksen Truth Crème Advanced Hydration: I can't really say how well this works because I didn't use it long enough to be able to evaluate it.
Koh Gen Do Macro Vintage Stretch Eye Sheet: I have used a few of these and really like them, but I haven't really used them long enough to really review them. They do make my eyes look rested and moisturized, and that is always a good thing.
Tatcha Classic Rice Enzyme Powder: This is a truly amazing product. I have never had a cleaning/exfoliating product do such a great job cleaning and removing dead skin while leaving my skin baby-bottom soft. You simply add a touch of water to the powder to turn it into a paste and then use it as you would any cleanser. However, the results are anything but run-of-the-mill!
Malin+Goetz Jojoba Face Scrub: This is a very nice gentle and effective physical exfoliant. I really love Malin+Goetz- they make solid products that do exactly what they claim to do.
Kai Perfume Oil (reviewed here): I am still madly in love with Kai. Sadly, I think that I have used the last of my sample vials- these are just fantastic for traveling. I will need to replace my full size bottle of the Kai Perfume Oil pretty soon because I wear it so often!
Assorted Perfume Samples: Nothing stands out or warrants a purchase.
