Empties

Time for another empties post! I've used up a bunch of awesome skincare products! (A makeup empties post is on it's way as well!)

Indeed Labs Retinol Reface
Sadly I didn't see any results with this one. I was really hoping it would help with some of my old acne scars. I know retinol is a product that takes time but I don't think I noticed anything after I used up the whole tube. It's a pretty affordable retinol product from the drugstore though, so if you're looking for something affordable it could work for you!

Glytone Cleanse Mild Gel Wash
I think this gel cleanser lead me to my current obsession with gel cleansers (see my post here on the Kate Sommerville Daily Detox Cleanser). This stuff contains AHAs to help exfoliate your skin and 4.7 Glycolic Acid which is a key ingredient for me to deal with my acne. I didn't love the packaging on this one but it was a great cleanser.

Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer
I picked this up originally when I had very troubled skin and while I didn't see results over night, I felt like this toner was just really calming and helped maintain the oil on my face. I really grew to love this product and I think in the future I will repurchase this even though it costs an arm and a leg.

Mizon Snail Repair Cream
I love the fact that this stuff is formulated with 92% snail extract. Its got a bit of a slimy consistency but I kind of love it! It makes my face pretty matte actually which was super surprising! It always felt really gentle and hydrating so I loved applying it in the morning under my makeup. I'm curious to try other products in the range!

Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment
This was a deluxe sample of the moisturizing mask. You can use this for some instant hydration for the face or you can wear it over night to really lock in the moisture. I love overnight masks and so for me I always applied a nice layer all over my face and washed it off in the morning! It was the perfect size for travel as well!

Avene Cleanance Lotion
I love moisturizers that are targeted for oily skin. This leaves a nice matte texture to your face and an overall great moisturizer! It's got a more gel consistency which I'm a big fan of. I would definitely purchase this again!

Let me know if there's anything you guys have tried out recently I should try!
