Back again with another 5 empties (fully finished products)! I have a bunch of empties this month, but, as usual, I am keeping these posts to 5 products to keep them short. As always, I’m super excited to take a good look at what I thought of the products I’ve finished and whether or not I’d buy them again. And, of course, thank you so much for being here, and it would mean so much to me if you subscribe here or on Instagram @liftbakelove for new posts.
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm (previous empty)– I’ve written about this a few times already, and it’s because it’s my HG makeup remover. I had been trying the cleansing oil for awhile, but found that the balm was more effective at removing makeup if I was wearing more of it. The cleansing oil is great for the summer and really light makeup days, but the balm is what I need (both in terms of effectiveness and hydration) in the fall/winter and whenever my skin is irritated by spring allergies. I have 1 more back-ups of this as well as many other so not going to rebuy any time soon.
KBShimmer Hand & Body Sugar Scrub in Warm Apple Cider – Using this body scrub was such a joy! It smells exactly like fresh apple pie and cider in the fall welcoming into a cozy evening. It’s just super comforting to me, and it also works really well. It’s incredibly moisturizing while also being an effective scrub – I usually don’t even need body lotion when I use this since. This particular scent was limited edition for September, but they have tons of other scents on their site which I’m sure are equally amazing. It is heavily fragranced so keep that in mind if that’s something that will bother you, but I absolutely love how this smells and how well it sticks around for my whole shower. I will absolutely
I normally wouldn’t do this as I have always reviewed each product separately, but the other three have nothing that is standing out to me to make it worth it, especially because they’re all pretty expensive. I have so many other hair masks, concealers, and brow gels that I like better. The Verb Hydrating Mask is totally fine but unremarkable (and $20?!), same with the Clinique Concealer (which is $27?!) and same with the Hourglass Brow Gel (which is $29?!?!). I won’t be repurchasing any of these and happy to answer any actual questions about these in the comments!
I’d love to know – what have you finished lately? Like I mentioned, I have a ton more empties that I will be posting about, and not all of them are as positive as this group. Let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to see here on LiftBakeLove, and thanks for reading!
