EMPTIES: Spring 2019 pt. 2

I’m not sure how this happened, but I’ve been going through so many beauty products lately. I was trying to do a new Empties post every season, but I have used up way too many product these last few months. Therefore, I couldn’t wait any longer and decided to take an executive decision and do  EMPTIES: Spring 2019 pt. 2. Using up so many products over the past couple of months is a good and bad thing. It’s good, because I’ve been cautious about using up products instead of buying new things. The bad thing is that I’ve now iut of different products, such as night creams. So, I have to start buying some new products soon.

3 Beauty Products I’m Trying To Use Up

I love beauty products! One of my favorite hobbies is buying, trying, and experimenting with different products. When I find a way to incorporate a new product into one of my routines; I feel accomplished. However, over the past couple of years, I’ve become more mindful of hoarding so many products. Usually, when I can’t make a product work for my skin, I find a friend or family member that might enjoy them. However, there are some products that I don’t necessarily “hoard”, but just don’t use that much.

A few weeks ago, my skin and I were going through it bad! I was going through some career drama, which lead to stress and my skin showing the signs. So, I did what I usually do when my skin acts up; go back to the basics. I broke out my simple skincare routine and strayed away from strong ingredients. However, all of my night time moisturizers were too heavy and/or strong to use. Plus, since it’s starting to warm up, I know I didn’t want nor need anything to heavy. Enter, skin essences! Skin essences are low key a must-have for every skincare products collection, no matter your skin type. Plus the right skin essence can bring out the best in other skincare products you use.


Skin essences have become my favorite product to use and I need more. I’ve tried a couple, but have many others I want ASAP! Keep reading to see why I’m a firm believer in an essence for you skin and the ones I personally love.
