Winter 2017 Product Empties

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. It’s the last day of winter and spring starts tomorrow! To celebrate the new season, I’ll be sharing my winter 2017 product empties. I’ve only done one product empty post before but I’d like to do it more often. From now on, I’ll be doing a product empty post every season or quarter… So expect a product empty post every three months! And here’s my winter 2017 product empties.

Winter 2017 Product Empties

Winter 2017 Product Empties

Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser

Winter 2017 Product Empties // Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser

Philosophy’s Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser is a staple product in my skincare routine. The 1% salicylic acid in the cleanser helps keep my acne at bay. I use it every morning and night with my Clarisonic Mia 2 brush. The two products together are total game changers and the 8 fl. oz. bottle actually lasts me awhile. Since I ran out of the Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Cleanser, I have not replaced it. Instead, I bought La Roche-Posay’s Toleraine Purifying Foaming Cleanser. It doesn’t contain any salicylic acid but we’ll see how it works for my skin! Expect a product review in the near future.

OGX Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Shampoo

While Philosophy’s Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser is a staple in my skincare routine, the OGX Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Shampoo is a staple in my haircare routine. I don’t wash my hair everyday and this 19.5 fl. oz. bottle lasted me a very long time. I love this shampoo because it smells good, it’s sulfate free, and it strengthens my hair. The only downside is that it doesn’t provide as much volume as I’d like. Since running out of this shampoo, I’ve switched to Hask’s Chia Volumizing Shampoo and I also love it.

Bath & Body Works Tropical Mint Foaming Soap

Winter 2017 Product Empties // Bath & Body Works Tropical Mint Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

My sister and I are obsessed with Bath & Body Works. Whenever there’s a sale (which is often), we go and stock up on candles, hand sanitizers, and soaps. One of the scented soaps I’ve been using is the Tropical Mint gentle foaming hand soap. It smells wonderful and I’m sad I can no longer find it on their website. But I’m sure I’ll easily find a new favorite scent.

It Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC Cream

Winter 2017 Product Empties // It Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC Cream

The It Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC Cream is definitely one of my holy grail products. I wear this almost every day to achieve a minimal makeup look. I love that it comes with a pump, smells good, and blends into my skin very well. It provides enough coverage so I don’t have to add concealer… unless I’m going for a full face look. This is the third tube I’ve gone through and I think it’s time to try another CC cream. Any suggestions?

Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

I’ve also gone through a few bottles of the Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. I love that it comes with a pump, which is basically an essential for all the products I use. This foundation feels lightweight but provides full coverage. It’s perfect for both winter and summer. I could be sweating but still look flawless, thanks to the Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. Since it’s getting warm again, I might have to stock up on this foundation.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

Lastly, I ran out of the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. Like other products mentioned in this post, the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer is a holy grail product for me. I love how it glides onto my skin and blurs my pores. It really creates the perfect canvas for the rest of my makeup. I recently switched to the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, which is a game changer and worth the extra bucks.

      2. Really? It looks like a promising product! But I used to use MAC Fix+ and it was awesome! I honestly forgot about that primer and setting spray. You got me thinking about it again haha.

  1. I love B&BW soaps and candles! I haven’t shopped there in over a year because I went a little crazy during one of their sales and I’m still working my way through all of the soaps/wallflowers/lotions/body sprays. I love their wide range of scents. That Smashbox primer is amazing too!

    1. I definitely understand what you mean! I’m pretty sure I have enough candles, soap, and hand sanitizer to last me a year. Or more! Luckily, everyone in my family uses them.

      And yes, I love the Smashbox primer! It works so well.
