June Beauty Empties

June Beauty Empties || Musings of a Gossip

Hi darlings!!

Hope all of my American readers had a great Fourth of July! 

I know this post is super late but I’ve been on vacation this past week, enjoying life and not on my computer! 

Here are my used up June beauty goodies! 

1. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion: I bought these little travel versions for when I go back Upstate to visit my family. I don’t use this on my face because I’m scared to change from my beloved CeraVe but this was amazing on my body! It rubs into my skin so smoothly and doesn’t leave any residue. I know dermatologists recommend this brand and I have super sensitive and oily skin...this is perfect. I haven’t repurchased because I have so many lotions and creams to use up but I will again in the future. 

2. IT Cosmetics Confidence in an Eye Cream: I’m a huge fan of IT Cosmetics and I’m obsessed with this eye cream. This is my 3rd jar and I already repurchased. It’s so hydrating and doesn’t make me breakout. I LOVE it and highly recommend it. I tell everyone about this gem! I use it just at night religiously. In the morning, I don't use any eye creams because I find that my mascara runs and my concealer melts. I have to figure out of tricks to prevent this. If you're shopping for a new eye cream, try this one!

3. Chanel Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Moisturizing Tint SPF 30: As I’ve said before...I’m obsessed with everything Chanel and this tinted moisturizer is the best. It was just released less than three months ago and I’m already hooked. It works great with my sensitive skin, never makes me breakout and is so lightweight. It has SPF 30 so it perfect for summer. I usually just use this as my everyday foundation. This is extremely light coverage so I apply two layers to get a little more coverage. I have crazy oily skin so it’s important not to clog my pores or use a heavy formula during the warmer months. I went through this bottle in two months and I already purchased a new bottle. It’s that good. IT Cosmetics will be releasing a matte oil free version of their cult classic CC Cream so let's see if it can compete with this!

4. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara: I have been using this mascara for the past 8 years. I’ve cheated a little here and there but I’ve been pretty much consistent. I was so upset to hear they discounted this gem. So I went to the store and stocked up! I bought 6 tubes. Hahaha. They still have it available on clearance so stock up now before they are all gone! I only have two tubes left. After this, I’ll go buy something new. I'll probably go back to Dior's Overcurl. It was great with my oily skin and doesn’t leave me looking like a raccoon. 

5. BioDerma Sensibio H2O: This is my 6th bottle and I’ve already purchased two more! It's great for removing mascara and toning my skin. It works really well with my oily skin and has never made me breakout. I highly recommend it. This is perfect if you still suffer from acne breakouts...key factor: it's extremely gentle and that's what your breakouts need...nothing harsh. 

6. Spa Technologies Flower Acid Peel: My local spa recommended I use this about one a week. I do get monthly facials so this was to help in-between visits. Personally, I prefer Juice Beauty Green Apple Full Strength Peel way better. I feel like the Spa Technologies is way too gentle for me. Juice Beauty really makes my skin show a difference. I have gone through 4 jars already and make sure I have 2 jars as backup. I use it every other day or at least twice a week all year long. It's the best mask I've used but it's a strong peel. If you burn easily...please get the mild version. My skin is used to it so I have built a tolerance. This will make your skin burn and turn red so please be careful and as a professional before using. It's definitely worth it though. This Flower Acid? I'll skip.

I'm so proud of myself for using up product. I deserve a medal! hahaha. Let's see how much I can use up in July!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
