Empties: Charlotte Tilbury, Glossier, MooGoo, Ombrelle, Biotherm, The Ordinary, L’Oreal Wonder Water, Aveeno Baby and Trinny Skincare
A few empties… well, 9 to be exact.
Let’s start with the most luxurious one, the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, I took my half-empty jar on vacation with me, and ended up finishing it. It went on everything from my face to sunburns. I have a backup jar of this.
Glossier Body Hero. In the end, although the white floral scent wasn’t what I was expecting, I did really like this body cream. It leaves your skin glowing and is really good at moisturizing. Melts on contact on hot days and I love that too. I may rebuy this. If you’re a new customer, you can save 10% if you use my aff code: https://re.glossier.com/8a0fd65b
I finished another MooGoo Natural Protein Shot Leave-In Hair Conditioner. It worked well in humidity too! I adore this and I’m sad to be finished this. Silicone-free and cheaper than your usual hair cream at $19. Get it here.
Ombrelle SPF 60. Too moisturizing. I will not rebuy.
Biotherm Lait Solaire Corps SPF 50. Really worked as a nice body and face sunscreen. Absolutely will rebuy.
The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser. I didn’t want this one to finish! It was so good! Rebuy! Someone said to me that this didn’t seem to wash away dirt when they used it. There is a specific way to best use balm cleansers: I apply it on dry skin and the towel off with a wet cloth. Then I use a foaming cleanser afterwards using the same method. I believe that most balm/oil/cream cleansers are meant to be used this way and they work really well when they are! Any residue is then washed off with a foaming cleanser. This is the dual-cleanse method and not everyone knows about it.
L’Oreal Wonder Water. Again, works in all temperatures. You already know that I have a backup of this waiting for me at home.
Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion. This is a beautiful fragrance free lotion, again, melts into your skin, doesn’t pill or ever get clumpy. Not just for babies. Everyone should have this one hand. It also helps colloidal oatmeal in it which is known to sooth skin.
Trinny London Retinal/Niacinamide cream. I used this at night. I finished the cream, and threw out the refill. I do have a backup refill of this.
