Empties #6

I've amassed another pile of empty products to do a final review on. Like I always say, you can determine your most compete opinions about a product if you've used it all up. Most of my empties this time are skincare related but I do have a few makeup products. I'm using the same format as my past empties posts (Empties 1, Empties 2, Empties 3, Empties 4, Empties 5) including a mini review of the product, an estimate of its longevity and whether or not I will repurchase it.


Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Moisturizer
This is one of my most favourite daily moisturizers I've ever used. It smells unbelievable for starters. It also leaves my skin soft and ready for makeup. It was hydrating and gentle on my sensitive skin. I also think it marginally helped calm the redness on my face. I was so sad to finish it.
Longevity? About 9 months of daily use
Repurchase? Most likely one day, but at $50 I currently can't afford it.

Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins
A game changer for my skincare. By applying this thick cream before bed, I would wake up with hydrated and soft skin. It's called a renewal cream and that's exactly what I feel like it did. Renewed my skin over night. The citrus smell is also a plus. It's become holy grail for sure!
Longevity? About 6 months of nightly use
Repurchase? Absolutely!

Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer
After raving about the Night-A-Mins cream I have to keep Origins humble. I can't say this GinZing Moisturizer was anything special. It hydrated my skin, it wasn't to thick so it applied well under makeup and it smells of citrus, but in my opinion, not worth the money.
Longevity? About 6 months of daily use
Repurchase? No

Vitamin E Sink-in Moisture Mask
I have a review comparing this mask to the Glam Glow Hydrating Mask which you can find here. I think I like this one just as much as the more expensive option. Overnight it can take my skin from dry and flakey to completely moisturized and back to normal. It's kind of a miracle. Plus a little goes a long way.
Longevity? About 1 year
Repurchase? Yes.

Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment
This is such an amazing mask! Because it's soooo expensive I tend to only use it on my nose and sometimes the rest of my T-Zone. It immediately clears up any blackheads and makes my skin the clearest it will ever be. It's by FAR the best mask I've used.
Longevity? Hard to say (This is the mini size)
Repurchase? Yes, I just wish it was more affordable.

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
These gels do firm the under eye area and feel really nice and cooling. For special occasions they're probably worth it however I don't think they have any long term effects. They also aren't very brightening which is something I'm looking for.
Longevity? 1 use
Repurchase? Not likely.


Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
This is my favourite concealer from the drugstore. It's not quite as good or creamy as the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer but it's amazing for the price. It has really good coverage and it's really blendable.
Longevity? About 8 months of daily use.
Repurchase? For Sure!

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige (it's NOT Beige, stupid name!)
Anyone remember the days when this was my favourite, holy grail lip gloss? It is not at all sticky, the colour is flattering for everyday and it smells like fruit punch! I love it!
Longevity? N/A 
Repurchase? Maybe one day, but not right now.

Tanya Burr Lip Gloss in Picnic in the Park
Tanya's Lip Glosses have been repackaged since I bought mine so I don't even know if the formula is the same anymore. However this was a fairly good gloss with a nice scent. A little sticky but not too bad.
Longevity? N/A
Repurchase? Probably not! Sorry Tanya, but there are other glosses I like just as much that don't need to be shipped from the UK.

Have you tried any of these products?
