See my January empties here.
I just wrapped up part 1 of a project at work that has completely taken over my life the past couple of weeks. I’m hoping to make some progress on the backlog of posts I have in my draft file, but in the meantime, here is a quick rundown of the things that I emptied in February!
NIP + FAB GLYCOLIC FIX PADS – These were a sample from the Target January 2016 Refresh Beauty Box and I actually quite like them. I have not been using chemical exfoliants since starting tretinoin a few months ago but it’s been something I’ve been wanting to reintroduce. They have a good amount of alcohol, which I don’t love, but the exfoliating action is mild enough for me to use in conjunction with tretinoin. I’m planning to give Pixi Glow Tonic a try next, but if those don’t work out I may give the full size of these pads a try.
MIZON SEA WEED JELLY SCRUB – I usually stay away from physical exfoliants because when I use them, I end up compulsively sanding my skin into submission, which leaves my skin soft but is so, so irritating. This scrub, made of seaweed jelly and konjac pieces, is extremely gentle and seems proofed against users like me. I use this by applying on dry skin, moving it around my skin, and then jumping in the shower to rinse it off.
SULWHASOO EVERFAIR PERFECTING CUSHION REFILL (housed in an Etude House Sand Cat Cushion) – I’m a NC25, which is slightly too dark for most Korean cushions. This cushion in #25 is a pretty good fit and when used in conjunction with a beauty blender, makes for an incredible finish – thin and natural looking but with decent coverage.
KLAIRS JUICY DROP – This is an ascorbic-acid based Vitamin C serum that is suitable for sensitive skin. To be honest, I don’t really notice much of an effect, good or bad, with this serum and was determined to finish it mostly so I can go back to using my HG Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Serum.
FROM NATURE AGE TREATMENT ESSENCE – This is my favorite first essence to date! It is intensely hydrating and makes my skin smooth and glowy. Of all the items I finished in February, this is probably the one that I will repurchase.
What products did you guys finish in February?
