June Empties

Disclaimer: All but deodorant purchased by me. See bottom for more

june empties

In June, I finished three beauty and bath products:

  • Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser
  • L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in Fair
  • Arrid Extra Extra Dry deodorant

Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser

I started using this cleanser last year, when I first started using my Clarisonic. I LOVED the smell of it, and I thought I’d found my Holy Grail facial cleanser. But then when I purchased it for the second time, (this bottle shown that I used up), I noticed that not only had the packaging changed, but it seemed the formula did, too. The smell is not fresh and clean anymore, the scent is more plastic and chemical. It cleaned my skin, but I didn’t enjoy this tube, and I will not purchase this product again.

L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in Fair

This is one of my favorite BB Creams. It is a lotion with “beautifying beads” of pigment that break open as you apply it to your skin. It feels like it’s exfoliating. The formula contains antioxidants vitamins C & E, and it promises to primer, perfect, hydrate and correct your skin.

I love the pigmentation for my skin tone; this is not oily, it really does feel like my skin after I apply it and it absorbs. I add powder, and my face is flawless.

I have already purchased a new tube because this is a home run BB Cream for me!

Arrid Extra Extra Dry deodorant

Eh, you live and you learn, right?

My mom said, “I love the deodorant I use but they seemed to have discontinued it,” when I told her I was experimenting with the perfect wedding day deodorant (I’m wearing a strapless gown – I don’t want white beads under my arms from my usual clinical strength deodorants!)

So I took her up on her offer when she wanted to share this deodorant with me, because my mother stockpiles everything that works for her so she had a bunch lying around.

Every time I used it, I loved how it smelled. It’s a gentle, fresh scent, but oh my gosh. It does not keep me stink-free! Yes, it’s clear under my arms but I can’t wear this on my wedding day, because I won’t feel like I smell good, or feel confident hugging people or dancing with my arms in the air.

I’m glad it works for my mom, but no-can-do for these pits!

So what products did you cycle through this month? Now that I started doing an Empties series, I can’t wait to see what I’ll go through each month!
