Empties #1

Greetings from the Dark Side! ^_^

I've been lagging a bit these past few days and for that I apologize. I haven't commented on other blogs as much as I would like and I haven't been much on my own blog either. I haven't been feeling like myself these past few days and I've just been very tired. I just had midterms too, so excuse me if I am a bit brain dead. Maybe I am a zombie and I haven't realized it...or maybe school is just getting to me. That's a more likely reason!

I thought I would do this post since I have been too lazy to post it for the past days. These are the products I used up in the month of April. Some of them I have already mentioned before.

Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Lotion
This stuff is seriously moisturizing! I use this mainly because I suffer from eczema. Let me tell you, I've had eczema for as long as I can remember and it is not fun. My skin gets itchy, red, dry, flaky, and sometime it can bleed. This Eucerin lotion is very thick, and it moisturizes the driest skin. It takes a little longer for the skin to absorb it,but it does the job. It really helps to get rid of the dry and flaky patches of my eczema. This would work as well for those who just have very dry skin.I have already repurchased this since my eczema has been  rather bad recently because of the weather changes.
Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Conditioner
I have a love/hate relationship with this conditioner. I like it and sometimes I don't. If I use it too much it can leave my hair feeling really weird and greasy (yuck!). But if I use it occasionally, it leaves my hair super soft and shiny. It's like $4-5, so I would purchase it again if I needed a cheap conditioner.

Artistry Illuminating Essence
I love this stuff. I ran out of this about two weeks ago and my skin suffered after I stopped using it. It is moisturizing, it leaves my skin radiant, and it has been helping with my acne scars. I just recently bought a second bottle and my skin is starting to feel a bit better again. I still have a long way to go, but I hope that this will significantly reduce the appearance of my scars. 

Artistry Makeup Remover
I've been using this to remove my eye makeup. It works well, although it does leave a oily residue. On the bright side, it removes my makeup without stinging my eyes. But now I have my Bioderma to remove my makeup so I don't think I will be needing this anymore.

Reviva Labs Makeup Primer
I adore this stuff! This is the second bottle I have finished, and I just started using my third. It is the only primer thus far that I have even remotely liked. I can't say that it makes my foundation last for 24 hours, or that it prevents all shine, but it does make my foundation it last longer and look better. I mainly like it because it helps to prime the dry areas of skin. It also does not break me out :)

So far that is what I have finished! I will update you guys with my empties at the end of this month :D 
Have you guys tried any of these products?

Also here is my puppy, Chewbacca (aka Chewie). He just turned 1 the other day~ He is so cute, but don't let his innocent exterior fool you. He is hyper and a troublemaker. But I love him regardless!


  1. saw the organix in my local drugstore the other day and I was really tempted to try it. after reading your positive (though love/hate) review, I think I'll go get myself some organix (after my project 20 body-n-hair)

    love reading empties post(s) a lot!

    visit Beauty Sketch - my Beauty Journal!

  2. Awwww doggy!!! :D
    I've never used any of those products but am always on the lookout for new things to try =]

  3. Aww, Chewie's super cute!
    I like the sound of Artistry Illuminating Essence... where did you buy it? Would it be possible for you to do a review on it? I used to suffer from bad acne myself and still have faint scars. >_<

  4. Good luck with your midterms!

    Also, PUPPY PICTURE! <3

  5. I finish my Reviva Labs Makeup Primer too:)

  6. Oh wow, I really have to try Eucerin if you say it has helped your eczema!

  7. Awww, Chewie! <3 <3 I'm glad you're okay (not craving brains, right?)
