Beauty Empties: Love It Or Leave It

I tried out so many “new to me” products these past two months and today I am sharing if I think they are worth repurchasing or not!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: A Lip Sleeping Mask with a softening balm texture that closely adheres to lips for quick absorption. Exclusive Moisture Wrap™ technology boasts hyaluronic acid and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients.

What It’s Supposed To Do: Helps reduce flakiness so you can wake up to lips that feel refreshed, supple, and soft to the touch. Also suppose to help with fine lines.

How To Use: Using applicator, apply generously to the lips in the evening and leave on overnight. Gently wipe off or cleanse in the morning.

My Opinion: Not worth the $22! Did it make my lips feel soft? Yes. Did it moisturize and help with dryness? Yes. BUT no more than my tube of Aquaphor does and I can grab 2 tubes for under $8! I definitely fell into the hype on this one and I’m so bummed it didn’t work for me.

Tula Firming + Hydrating Moisturizer:  Lightweight daily moisturizer with probiotic extracts, prebiotics and smart peptides to promote skin firmness & elasticity to plump the look of skin.

What It’s Supposed To Do: Help restore skin radiance, improve the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, target signs of premature skin aging while it nourishes and plumps skin.

How To Use: Apply daily to clean skin, or after serum. Use AM & PM.

My Opinion: There are quite a few Tula Skincare products that I use and LOVE! But this daily moisturizer is not going to be a favorite of mine. I do like that this moisturizer feels super lightweight for AM wear but it’s not moisturizing enough for me. If you have normal to oily skin this may be a better option for you. I constantly felt like my face looked and felt dry halfway through the day when I used this. Not going to be a repurchase for me.

Kristin Ess Dry Shampoo: A vitamin c enriched dry shampoo that absorbs oil and helps extends life of styled hair.

How To Use: Apply to dirty or clean hair at the root. Gently tap powder into hair to make any visible powder disappear.

My Opinion: I wanted to like this so bad because so many of ya’ll love it! Unfortunately, I feel like I had to use so much product to feel like it “worked” for me. Once I sprayed a generous amount in my hair, I felt like it worked great but then I was using so much product and used up the bottle so quickly! I love that it is a drugstore brand so it’s convenient to grab a bottle but for the price, I will be going back to my tried and true OGX $7 dry shampoo.

Tula Wrinkle Treatment Drops: Retinol alternative serum

What It’s Supposed To Do: Clean, retinol-free serum that helps minimize the look of wrinkles & treats signs of premature aging, helps firm the look of skin, provides antioxidant protection, improves skin smoothness and helps firm the look of skin.

How To Use: Dispense 2-3 drops & massage onto dry, clean face. Use AM & PM.

My Opinion: 100% I will be purchasing this again. Within the first week I could already  feel a difference in my skin elasticity and fine lines. As ya’ll know retinol can leave the skin feeling dry but this retinol alternative product was ultra nourishing and did not dry out my skin at all but still doing the job of a retinol serum.

I hope this post was helpful for those of you who have been on the fence about trying these products! Just a friendly reminder that just because some products didn’t work for me doesn’t mean they aren’t great products! Let me know if you have any questions!
