February Empties

Guess whose back? Back again? Sorry for my absence, as I mentioned in my previous post I had a whole buncha work crap going on. What better way to emerge from the dead than to post my empties for this month?

Olay Fresh Outlast Cooling White Strawberry and Mint Body Wash 🍓

I liked this one. I didn’t really get a “cooling” sensation if you will,  but it smelled nice.  I  will probably re-buy in the future but I need to remember to get a smaller sized bottle because I get tired of using the same scent. Then I want to try something new and feel like I have to finish it up before I have like 30 bottles of different ish in the tub. Struggle is real. However, the link I’m posting below from Walmart is a super good deal.

Softsoap Body Scrub Sea Kissed Body Wash 🌊

This body wash is very highly fragranced. It’s a cross between a floral and marine smell. I wasn’t personally a fan but if you like strong smells like this, it would be good. It reminded me of a Bath and Body Works body wash.

Sorry, couldn’t find a link to this one. 😑

Sheet Masks

Botanic Farms Cherry Blossom Sheet Mask 🌺

Perfect. Great quality and perfectly saturated and fit my face well. I received this as part of the Memebox 50 shades of sheet mask box, but I would definitely repurchase this again. Use this link to get 20% off your first order of $25+!

Botanic Farms Cherry Blossom Sheet Mask

Naisture Juicy Pomegranate Sheet Mask 

I purchased this mask from Shopmissa.com .  I will be doing a blog post on the site as a whole very soon, but pretty much everything on the site is a buck. The mask was very saturated, although the face mask fits a bit awkwardly but  it was def worth the dollar. I’ve seen this brand at TJ Maxx/Marshall’s before as well.

Daggett&Ramsdell Pore Refining Charcoal Sheet Masks

A TJ Maxx/Marshalls find. I think they were about $5 for 4 masks. They were ok, although I felt like they dried out a bit quickly. I’m not sure I’d repurchase these again. I felt like they were typical.

Spalife Thai Herbs & Botanicals Sheet Masks- Papaya and Lemongrass

These were a pretty typical sheet mask, but I liked them and would repurchase. They have a light nice smell which I liked. My skin was soft after using them.

 Naisture The Secret Snail Hydrogel Gold Sheet mask 🐌

Another Marshall’s find.  What I liked about them was that they came in two separate pieces, which made it easier for application since sometimes gel masks can get all twisted and weird when you are putting them on. This was decent gel mask, especially for the price. I got 5 for $3.99. I would definitely repurchase.

Malibu Glitz Chamomile Sheet Mask

Another one from shopmissa.com. This mask made my skin  so so soft! I never would have expected that from a $1 mask like this,  but even next day kept touching my face and couldn’t believe how soft it was. The mask has a nice scent to it, and is made of Tencel silk. This is an absolute bargaaaaaainnnnnn and I already went back and ordered more. Highly recommend. 👍🏼

Skinfood Tomato Sheet Mask 🍅

Another typical sheet mask. I got these as a pack on Amazon at a pretty reasonable price. The thing I didn’t like about this particular one was that it was a little too perfumey. The mask was very saturated and my skin was soft the next day after using. I would re-buy the pack as a whole but wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this individually.

Skinfood Quinoa Sheet Mask 🍚

This mask had a raised imprint/texture to it. I felt like it dried out really quickly and was nothing special. If it was part of the pack, I would use it again but would not buy this on it’s own.

Skinfood Super Nut Sheet Mask

This mask also had the raised imprint/texture to it. It didn’t dry out quickly like the other one, and didn’t really have a smell. I would use this again.

Welcos Juju Natural Canola Honey Mask

This mask was very saturated but did dry quickly. However, I felt like it soaked into my skin really well and my skin was very soft after use. I would definitely repurchase these, and they’re a pretty good deal as they come in a pack of 10.

Tony Moly I’m Real Tea Tree Mask Sheet

I will be doing blog post soon on  the entire collection of masks. I actually loved this mask, which is funny because I thought it would be my least favorite of the bunch. I used this when I had a sinus headache that night and it was very relieving. Would definitely re-purchase. These masks also keep going down in price for the set on Amazon which is so awesome! They’re like $3.75 a piece at Sephora/Ulta and the entire set is $10 or less on Amazon right now for 11 sheets. Bargaaaaaaaain. 🙌🏽

Tony Moly I’m Real Seaweed Mask Sheet

This one had a slight scent to it. It soaked in well and was highly saturated. My skin felt moisturized after.

Tony Moly I’m Real Red Wine Mask Sheet 🍷

This mask had a slight grapey smell to it which I liked. It was very saturated and didn’t dry out quickly. My skin felt soft into the next day. I will definitely repurchase this one.

IPKN Dia Goat Milk Black Mask 🐐

Another TJ Maxx find. These were very very saturated and had a ton of extra essence. This mask stayed wet for awhile and it sunk in well.

Leaders Pore Scaling Black Aqua Sheet Mask

Got this in my Memebox 50 Shades of Sheet Mask box.  Again, you can use this link for 20% an order of $25+. For me, I didn’t notice much change in my pores, but my skin was definitely softer. I usually don’t have troublesome skin, so that could be why I  didn’t see too much of a difference. In the Kbeauty blogsphere world, people love these. The box of 10 works out to be a better deal on Amazon, but if you just want to try the one mask to see how it works for you I am linking the Memebox link below.

Leaders Pore Scaling Black Aqua Mask

Esfolio Egg Essence Mask Sheet 🍳

I tried this one out because the egg essence was interesting to me. I liked this mask, and would definitely re-purchase. The mask was saturated well and didn’t dry out too quickly. It left my skin feeling soft afterwards. I picked this one up at Beauteque.com… Use ASHLEY10 for 10% off your Beauteque order 😚.

Esfolio Egg Essence Mask Sheet

Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask: Green Tea 🍵

This was my first Innisfree mask, and I was disappointed it didn’t live up to the hype it gets  in the K-Beauty world. I don’t know if I got a bad one or what, but it ripped apart really easy. It may be that it was just too saturated at first, but oddly it dried out really quickly once it was on my face. I got this in my 50 shades of sheet mask box from Memebox, but I’m not sure I’d repurchase. However, I’ll try out the other varieties from this same line that I also got in that box before I make my final assessment. Has anyone else had a different experience with these? I know people usually like this line so I am confused…🤔

Annie’s Way Lavender Sleeping Mask Sheet

I’m obsessed with this mask. It’s my new favorite, and it smells heavenly. For those sensitive to smells, this may not be for you as it does smell strongly of lavender. This mask was super super soaked and there was so much leftover essence afterwards that it could be used on my face for another 2 days. It soaked into my skin well and my skin was super soft the next morning. This comes in a variety pack of 10 with some other masks from Beauteque.com but it is totally worth the purchase and I would re-buy the set just for these masks. Use ASHLEY10 for 10% off your Beauteque order. The rest of the masks in the set are mint, oat, aloe and chamomile.

Annie’s Way Soothing/Anti-Allergy Mask collection

Skinfood Beauty in a Food Mask: Strawberry 🍓

This mask smells so good, and this line is way better than the everyday mask line. It was well saturated, and stayed that way on my face.  I will definitely re-purchase these babies, and they’re priced decently well on Amazon.

Malibu Glitz Snail Mask 🐌

This was another banger from Shopmissa.com. It is made from the same material as the chamomile one I mentioned above, and honestly a snail mask for a dollar is dope. It was very saturated, and left my skin feeling soft. I already purchased more.

The Creme Shop Milk Face Mask 🍼

This was your typical sheet mask. No frills, but got the hydration job done. I’ve seen these masks at TJ Maxx before, and you can get them at Amazon as well which I’ve linked belo

Freeset Donkey Milk Aqua Gel Mask 🐮 

Another weird thing I put on my face. Although the fit of this was a bit awkward on my face, it left it super moisturized and soft the next morning. I would re-buy these masks, the best deal I’ve found is on Amazon, which I’ve linked below. If you want to buy just one to try, also carries them.

Holika Holika Makgeolli Brightening Sheet Mask 

Got this one as a freebie from Korea Depart. It was typical, my skin was soft after but it did try out quickly. Nothing super special about it, but the 5 pack is a good price on Korea Depart if you are placing an order for other stuff.

Botanic Farms Kiwi Natural Energy Sheet Mask 

Another great mask from Botanic Farms. Stayed saturated for awhile and left my skin feeling former and softer. I would re-purchase if they go on sale again on Memebox.

Spalife Hand Gloves 🖐🏼

I liked these, they had almost like a paraffin feel to them and heated up from my body heat when they were on my hands. .My hands were incredibly soft after use and I would definitely re-purchase. The smell was not quite like the ice cream pictured ,but smelled kind of like cocoa butter.

Spalife Foot Sockies 

These are definitely the best smelling foot masks I’ve used thus far. They had a minty smell to them, and my feet were definitely softer after use. I usually keep them on for longer than the recommended 30 mins. I am going to re-purchase these for sure.

Tony Moly Lovely Peach Hand Mask 🍑

I got this mask on Koreadepart.com, and  I wish I bought more because after some research it seems to be not readily available. This hand mask. smells. amazing. After using it, my hands were definitely softer and brighter. I’m a fan, and I will be repurchasing in the future.

Pedi Patrol Foot Mask

I got these at TJ Maxx/Marashalls at three for $3.99.  They are def flimsy and awkward, but for the price they’re worth it since you get three pairs. The only thing I didn’t really like was the chemical smell. Usually foot masks have a smell to them, but this one was very chemicalish… if that makes sense.

Gold Lip Mask 💋

I got these from T.J. Maxx. To be honest, lip masks aren’t my favorite. I will obviously use up the ones I have, but I don’t see much difference after using them. They also slide off really easily so I have to stay perfectly still when using them which is hard for an ADHD kid like me. Lots of people do like lip masks, so maybe it’s just not for me due to the fact that I can barely sit still.

CVS Advanced Cleansing Towelettes

I hated these. I had purchased them to use as makeup removing wipes, but they tugged on my face and were not moist enough to take the makeup fully off. I wound up using the package to remove lip makeup at the end of the night, or to clean up around the eye area in the morning when I was applying eye shadow. Def never purchasing these again. 👎🏼

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Targeted Wrinkle Treatment

I’ve re-purchased this one a few times. It’s really affordable, and considering I don’t have any actual wrinkles yet (watch I just myself and get them next week) I don’t need to splurge on wrinkle stuff quite yet. It does the job as far as I can tell, although as I said I don’t really have any wrinkles yet to know if it’s improving anything. Preventive care, my friends.

Secret Scent Expressions Passion de Tango Gel Deodorant

I love smell of this.This and other scents in this formula are a constant re-purchase for me. Secret deodorants are one of only ones that don’t irritate my underarms. Love the gel formula. Walmart is probably the cheapest place to find it.

Nakamichi Cosmetic Sponge

I got these at Big Lots, and these sponges are amazing quality. I would even buy them at for the $8 Amazon is charging because I haven’t been able to find them again at Big Lots and that’s still not bad for 50 sponges. The variety and durability of these is awesome. I get skeeved out and throw them away after a few uses but it says you can wash them them and re-use and I def believe it. I may try that in the future if I can’t readily find them again.

Impress nails 💅🏽

These are my obsession/Holy Grail. I am going to write a full blog post on these soon, but I go through about 4 packages a month as I put them on once a week. Re-purchase foreva and eva. Highly recommend.

Physician’s Formula Healthy Wear Powder Foundation

I’ve had this forever so I’m not sure if they even still carry this type. I linked a similar one I’ve tried in the past and liked down below. I love PF powders and bronzers, they are my go to. They last forever and wear beautifully. You can usually find them on some sort of sale at CVS, but Walmart also has them priced well.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hair Milk

This is a holy grail item for me. I’ve used it for years. I usually use it when my hair is wet to prevent frizz, but sometimes I’ll use it when my hair is dry to attempt to add some waves into my pin straight hair. Sometimes it helps hold the wave. It smells amazing!!

Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes Makeup Removing Wipes

Seriously another holy grail. These are the best makeup wipes ever. They are perfectly saturated, and super big so you only need one wipe to clean your entire face. They sell these at Costco, but sometimes I can’t readily get there so I’ll order from Amazon. They are worth every penny. I will continue to use these until I die, if they’re around that long.

LORAC Cobra Mascara 

This wasn’t actually an empty, but I hated it so much I’m throwing it out. I don’t know if I just got a bad one, but this masacra was so dried out and flaky that I really was not a fan. Have you tried this? If so, what was your experience? 😑

Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Mascara 

This one is one which I will continue to use, and already have the replacement in my makeup bag. I usually use two different masacras every morning, and I use this as my base masacra. It separates the lashes well and adds good length.

Eyes Lips Face Foundation Serum

This Foundation went relatively quickly. I feel like it did not last as long as my usual foundation does. It was okay, but has very very light coverage. I’m not sure I would repurchase it again, but it would be good if you were wearing it outside or somewhere that you just wanted a touch of makeup. It has SPF 25 in it, which is good as I mentioned if you are going to be outside.

Phew!! That sure was a lot for my first post in awhile.. and a lot of products (especially considering the fact that February was a shorter month than most!) Thanks for reading and sticking around while I wasn’t posting!
