Empties- Skincare

 Today I have some of the products I’ve been using a ton to share with you! Most of these are from past Ipsy bags, with a few exceptions, so they’re mostly sample sizes. I was going to do a post on all my empties, but I realize I have way too many! So I decided to narrow this down to the ones focused just on skincare. All the product prices below are for the full sized products!


First up! This body butter by Lavanilla Laboratories claims instant hydration. It contains all organic ingredients, no parabens, and claims to leave your skin non-greasy. Sounds great, right? While I enjoyed this product and thought it worked well enough, I disagree with the advertisement of non-greasy. Using this on my arms and legs was great, but on my neck and face it left a bit of a film. If you’re looking for a general moisturizer though, I will say that this one does smell divine! It’s deliciously vanilla-scented, and comes in 4 other types. Grab it at Sephora for $19.00.


I was super excited to test this product out when I received it in last month’s Ipsy bag! It works really well as far as I can tell, the sample was very small and only had enough for five or six uses. I saw an improvement in my skin over the two weeks I tested it for, and I feel confident that a larger amount would produce even better results. I found that my skin’s redness and dryness was reduced by this scrub. Find it here for $78.00.


This Glamglow facewash is my favorite, as you can tell from the sorry state of the bottle! I carried this travel size bottle with me as I hiked across Spain this summer (for more on that, read here!) and it worked so well on my sun damaged skin! The formula is “mud-to-foam”, which means it starts off as a paste and lathers with the addition of water. It does an awesome job of helping your skin feel moisturized and refreshed! Pick up one here for $39.00.


This St Ives apricot scrub is definitely a cult classic! I reviewed it previously here if you’d like to read a little more about it. Let’s just say I think it’s awesome! Grab some here.


Last but not least- the Dermatologica Clear Start All Over Toner! I really love this product and will definitely be repurchasing. It reduces redness, helps clear breakouts, and overall just improves the quality of my skin. I would recommend this to anyone! Get it for $19.50 here.



So there you have it, what I’ve been using a lot of lately for skincare! What have you been loving? Have you tried any of these products? Let me know in the comments!

I’d also like to congratulate Yasmine, the winner of the CaseApp giveaway! Congrats girl 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Love Kiki

  3. Ive been wanting to try the glam glow product line for a while now. I was worried it woukd break me out though so I’ve been hesistent with purchasing it. I have used St.Ives before and love it! It was my go-to scrub for the longest time.



  4. I really want to try the St Ives scrub, and I never find St Ives anywhere… perhaps I am not going to the right place where it is, at the drugstore. I will try to get it online!

    All of these products sound great! I’ve never tried any of them, but I really need to try that Clear Start Toner! Not so much for breakouts, more so for redness and improving the overall quality of my skin. Great picks, and the packaging on all of these are so cute and simple 🙂
