2022 EMPTIES (WILL I REPURCHASE?) – PART 14

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.

Allies of Skin Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser (repeat empty)– If you’re a regular reader, you know how much I love Allies of Skin products, and this cleanser is one of my favorites. This cleanser creates such a luxurious cleansing experience – you can even use it as a quick, hydrating mask if you leave it on for 5 minutes before washing it off. And while it really does clean, it also leaves your skin feeling hydrated like you used a moisturizer. This is the only cleanser I’ve used that actually helps with any extra dryness and irritation, and I really notice a difference when I’m not using it. I have already started with the backup I had and will likely be repurchasing eventually once I get through some other cleansers I’ve ended up with in my collection.

Beauty Blender Solid Unscented Sponge & Brush Cleaner – This is honestly just a bar of soap, and I have no issues with it – it works to clean brushes. That said, given how expensive it is, I will probably switch to unscented bar soap in the future or look into some other alternative for brush cleaning. Let me know in the comments if you have suggestions!

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation in 2 Fair – This is a “your skin but better” foundation – it’s incredibly light weight and feels like a moisturizer. It looks incredibly seamless and natural and blends in so quickly. It’s slightly dewy and is low to medium coverage, which are both things I look for in base products. Even though I loved this foundation, I won’t repurchasing because I have so many other foundation favorites that are less expensive like the Glossier Skin Tint, Fenty Eaze Drop, Tower 28 Sunny Days, and the Typology Tinted Serum that I could purchase instead.

Trader Joe’s Marula Facial Oil – This is honestly one of my favorite facial oils, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s so inexpensive. It’s incredibly moisturizing while still being lightweight, and a great last step for my nighttime routine. The packaging is also a really pretty glass bottle, which I know doesn’t really matter, but does make me happy. This oil is only $6.99 which makes it an incredible deal compared to something like the Drunk Elephant version which is $68). I will definitely consider repurchasing once I get through some of my other oils.

Cover FX Dewy Finish Setting Spray (repeat empty) – This was my HG setting spray that I’ve been using for years since at least 2018. It’s alcohol-free, it really does add dewiness which I can never get enough with, and it’s so much less drying than other setting sprays I’ve tried. Now that I’ve had a chance to try some other setting sprays that have launched in the last few years, I’ve moved on from this one and won’t be repurchasing. It’s still a really great option especially for dry skin!

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 I’ll be sharing empties posts every other Friday all year. Let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to see here on LiftBakeLove, and thanks for reading! As always, some links may be affiliate links that support the blog, but all reviews/opinions are completely my own and unsponsored.

  1. Re brush cleansers – For the first round, I’ll usually use a face wash I don’t like (I get Sulfate based, super foamy face wash GWPs all the time which tend to be too stripping).

    Then, rinse clean and use an unscented dishwashing liquid for round number 2. Rinse clean and voilà!

    I have a little silicone mat with nubbins on the top from Daiso which help a lot with loosening makeup.

    I’ve tried professional brush cleansers in the past and honestly they don’t work as well as this routine. Personally I don’t think they’re something to spend on but then again, I’m a bit of a tightwad 😅
