Another roundup of empties!

I finished a bottle of Bioderma Sebium. Just as gentle and effective as the normal Bioderma but this formula is targeted towards oily and combination skin. Not sure if I could really tell a difference but just as always, I love using Bioderma to remove makeup on my skin because it seriously just feels like water! 

I loved keeping this Yu-Be Foaming Skin Polish in my bath. I used it 2-3 times a week to exfoliate my face. I would use it on its own or with my clarisonic. It lasted me forever and even my husband enjoyed using it! 

I finished up this Loreal Total Repair 5 Extreme Instant Therapy Mask (longest name ever!) At $7 you can't really beat that price! I used this about 2 times a week and sometimes even mixed it into my conditioner for added repair. I enjoyed using it but wasn't super wowed by it. I still love the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle much more because your hair feels so super soft afterwards and I love the smell!

The Super Facialist by Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Peaceful Skin Night Cream (ok this is the longest name ever) was a nice soothing moisturizer. I liked the formula but wasn't a huge fan of the smell. I think I just don't like rose scented skincare, but I'm a huge fan of Rose scented perfumes and candles. This definitely really hydrated my skin and didn't leave it feeling tight or dry. I just wouldn't repurchase it due to the smell! I picked up mine from TJ Max so it was for a good price, too!

Finally, I used up my LUSH Ultrabland Cleanser. This is composed of essential oils, honey and beeswax. This stuff is unlike any cleanser I have ever tried. It's incredibly thick and just like a cleansing balm, you massage this all over your face (I focus this on my eye makeup), and then wash off with a hot muslin cloth. It got a little too thick for me so I would only use this to remove my eye makeup. It was amazing at breaking down makeup but it was still very heavy so it was hard to wash off my face. I would have to go in with another cleanser or my Yu-Be Skin Polish as an additional step. I've definitely found other cleansing balms and oils that I like much more than this and I did enjoy this to the last bit, but I won't be repurchasing this either.

That's all the empties for now!
