2017 Empties #2

I've been diligently collecting my trash so it's time for another empties post!

-Korres Castanea Arcadia Night Cream :) OMG HOLY GRAIL! I reviewed this recently and have been using it every day for about 3 months. My skin is so supple when I wake up and it really helped me avoid dry flaky skin during winter time.

-fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream :) I actually gave this to my mom to use and she really liked it! She said it was refreshing and the gel texture was unique!

-EOS Lip Balm :) Always a staple and I used it before sleeping every day for about a year!

-Tocca Simone :/ At first I really enjoyed the scent as it's light and fruity. However, similar to the Anna Sui Sweet Dreams perfume, I found sometimes it smelled like a "wet dog" on my skin.

-Urban Decay Naked Foundation in 4.0 :) Favorite foundation I've ever used. The formula is so light and the shade was perfect

-elf Stipple Brush :) I used this to apply the UD foundation and it gives a natural finish! Unfortunately the brush handle broke but for $3 this was well worth the money!

-Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer :) I surprisingly enjoyed it as it was a silicone type primer. But I found it really did keep my makeup fresh for longer!

-Benefit They're Real Mascara :) Another one of my holy grail mascaras. The wand is a bit spiky but if you build up the formula, you'll get some crazy long lashes.

-Annabelle Bigshow Mascara :) This was actually a 2016 favorite as it just created long, thick lashes!

-Youngblood Minerals in the Mist :/ I'm not sure if this did anything but the scent was super relaxing (vanilla and lavender) and the mist was fine.

-The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion :) I didn't think I would like this scent but it's nutty and sweet and smells so comforting! The formula is pretty light and easy to absorb

-L'Occitane Verveine Agrumes Fresh Shampoo :) Strong citrus scent and it lathers amazingly. It's a really nice shampoo that I used to clarify in between my other shampoos.

-Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Hand Cream :( I'm not that big of a fan as I feel the formula leaves my hands feeling dry still.
-Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream :) It was a pretty small sample but I liked the texture and the natural scent.

-Organic Japanese Sencha :) I don't usually get non-blends at David's Tea but this was surprisingly good. Very pure and soothing

-Tumeric Glow :( Too strong of ginger taste

-Pistachio Ice Cream :( It was a weird combination of savory and sour

-Apple Cider :) Sweet and tart, it tastes almost like an apple cider!

Lastly, here are some items I'm tossing.

-AG hair care Simply Dry Dry Shampoo :( This clogged, or leaked but it's empty and I barely used it!

-Dinoplatz Concealer :( It's very high coverage but quite cakey, I've had this for 3 years now.

-elf Eyebrow Kit :) A pretty good kit but only the cream side matches me and I've had this for 4 years. It now smells bad

-Annabelle and Rimmel eyeliners that were good but are just too old

-TFS Milky Moisture Tint in 04 Grape Pink :) I love the smell and texture but this is now expired

-Maybelline Babylips :/ Cute to look at but it now smells funny

-Estee Lauder New Dimension Expert Liquid Tape :( This doesn't do anything unfortunately

-got2b Smooth Operator :) I've had this for so many years. Although I didn't use it much, the smell is amazing and it detangles and smooths the hair very well

Who are your favorite project panners to watch? Also please link me with your empties :)
