May Empties

This is my first monthly empties post. I have enjoyed reading others' empties. What others used up say a lot about the products.

I only started to collect my empties half way through the month so this is only part of what I used up in May.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Daily Serum
I got this in my Feb/March Topbox. It is a 5ml sample size. It is an anti-aging intensive repair daily serum. I applied it every morning on my entire face. It is not greasy and absorbed fast into my skin. However, the fragrant scent is very strong. If you're sensitive to strong scent, definitely this one is not for you. I would not re-purchase it though. First, it is very pricey. For a full-sized product(1 fl oz) cost $225!!?? If it is really amazing on my skin, I MAY consider buying. But I don't find any significant improvement. 

Bath and Body Works Honeysuckle 3-Wick Candle
This has to be my favorite candle at the moment for the spring/summer. It is subtle but very refreshing. Have to go get a few backups next time I'm in the store.

Target Brand Facial Cleansing Wipes here
This is my third pack and have to say it is my favorite. I have tried their purple package but find the blue ones better. I have tried Simple and Neutrogena and find these blue packaged ones remove my eye-makeup the best.

I am an eye-cream junkie and I use multiple eye cream on a daily basis. 

La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Rehydration Anti-Puffiness Eye Cream
This is my second tube used up. It is a very light texture eye cream. Does what it says. Really hydrating and helps with my puffiness in the morning. 

Bliss Treat Yourself Baggage Handler Eye Gel
I have finally used this up. I got it months and months ago from Winners. I apply this with the La Roche Posay Hydraphase sometimes. Sometimes I use it alone but find it not moisturizing enough. I won't be repurchasing this.

La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I.
It is an essential in my skincare routine. It is a targeted breakout cream corrector. Whenever I feel like a pimple/breakout is surfacing, I apply this cream and 9 out of 10 times, within 2 days, it will calm down disappear. 

Benefit PoreFessional 
This is by far my favorite face primer. It actually minimizes the appearance of my pores. It has a very silky texture, making application extremely easy. 

Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Treatment here
When I find a good eye treatment, I stick to it. This is my second tube and I have already re-purchased. I use this at night time. I have tried many many eye treatments and find this one hydrating enough to use alone. It helps with the fine lines around the eyes and I am very happy with this.

  1. Love the sound of the candle xx


    1. it is my favorite scent in the spring. If you like subtle and refreshing scented candles, this one is amazing.

  2. Amazing post loved your empties will have to try some of these out :) x

    I can't wait for BBW's semi annual sale! Will definitely be stocking up on candles :)


    1. same here, want to stock up during their sales. I think the sale should be any time or maybe have started already.

  4. I LOVE empties posts, so glad you decided to do one :D I had only discovered them midway through May but I've started collecting for June! I have heard good things about the porefessional though I don't know that I notice the size of my pores? Would love to get a sample someday and test it out though :)

    1. I have big pores and I notice a significant difference in the appearance. Definitely try it out.
