Product Empties #3

I feel like these empties posts are getting closer and closer together. The last one I did was back in November (see post here), so it's been two months. I'm surprised to see that I've already used up enough products to make a part 3. With me being on a spending ban & all, part 4 may come even least I'm hoping it will. Finishing up a product gives me such a great feeling of accomplishment, knowing that my money isn't wasting away in my makeup drawer. Anyways, here are my empties -

e  m  p  t  i  e  s
Laneige Water Bank Serum* | This serum played such a big part in my Winter skincare routine, especially when my skin got into a bit of trouble a few months ago. It gave me that extra push of moisture (on top of the hydration I was already getting from my moisturizer). Also, my skin was always extremely smooth when I used it. Would I repurchase? Yes! 

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% | This is another serum that helped me through that same breakout period. On the website, this claims to reduce the appearance of blemishes & congestion, and balance visible aspects of sebum activity. I can definitely vouch for those claims.  Would I repurchase? Already have.

Pur~lisse Blue Lotus Essential Day Moisturizer* | I did a review on this moisturizer, which you can read here. All in all, it's a pretty good moisturizer but I'm kinda iffy about the smell. Would I repurchase? Probably not. 

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa Cream | Oh how I love this moisturizer. It's super rich and super moisturizing as well. Very appropriate for the current dry, winter weather we're experiencing in Toronto right now. It's safe to say I'm a huge fan. Would I repurchase? As soon as this spending ban is over, it's mine! 

Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm | I actually meant to include this in my last empties post, but completely forgot to mention it. It such a good lip balm. It kept my lips moisturized, soft, and plump. But it's sooo pricey. Would I repurchase? Yes, but probably not any time soon.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer | My absolute holy grail brow pencil. I much prefer this over the Brow Wiz as it's easier/faster to use, plus it's way creamier than the Brow Wiz. I'm surprised I've only gone through one considering how often I use this. With that said, I guess you can say a little goes a long way. Would I repurchase? Yes, already have!  

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer | My long time readers know this is one of my ride or die concealers. I've gone through a bunch of these already. It just such a good under eye concealer, perfect for brightening areas of the face. I like it especially alongside the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. Would I repurchase? Yes. Always. 

Lush Shower Cream in The Comforter | Ugh, I am so in love with the scent of this shower gel! Every time I use this, I fall in love with it all over again. It actually took me quite a while to finish this one up, but I'm glad it did. The Comforter is just one of my favourites from Lush; I'm a fan of the bubble bar as well. Would I repurchase? Yes!!

Products marked with a (*) were sent to me for consideration. All opinions are my own.

What products have you emptied out lately?
