I have some more empties for you today! This makes a small dent in the bag full of them I have. These are all face products, one of them being face sunscreen! Let’s just get to it, shall we??

Lush Ultrabland – I really enjoyed Ultrabland to remove my make up and clean my face in the evenings without drying it out. The smell takes a little getting used to, but it isn’t terrible or anything like that. I liked that you put it on your dry face and wiped it with a warm wet cloth. I felt like it took a step away from my nightly routine, which was a win. I would repurchase this again, but I enjoy the makeup remover balms more.

Lush Angels on Bare Skin -This is a scrub that smells very much like natural lavender. So you have to be ok with that scent to power through this container. I liked this alright, but to be honest…I got tired of the little “nature” like stuff getting stuck on my shower walls and floor and such. I suppose if I used it only at the sink, it wouldn’t have been as bad. I liked this alright, but I was barely able to use it all before the use by date and I had purchased the smaller container that is offered. I probably wouldn’t purchase this again because I like my Yes to Grapefruit scrub better, plus it is more easily found and less expensive. I will say that this was great for when my skin was super sensitive.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Makeup -I love this foundation. It is my second favorite behind the Estee Lauder Double Wear. It provides a medium to full coverage look and you can make it look more matte or dewy depending on how you apply it. My favorite way is with a beauty blender. I have a perfect match in this line for color. I would repurchase this again.

Cotz Face – I absolutely LOVE this stuff. I wore this on my face all last summer at the beach, and the summer before cutting grass. I like that it doesn’t burn my eyes at all or break me out. I cant say enough good things about this, I highly recommend you get this for this year!!! It is time to stock up on these things. Remember I have super pale sun-sensitive skin and I had no issues with this! Have repurchased and will again this year!

Makeup Forever Mat Velvet -This provides a medium matte coverage. I liked the coverage alright, and it worked great in the summer with oily skin in the Alabama humidity. However, I could never find a color from Makeup forever that matched my skin tone perfectly. I also felt like this was almost too dry for my skin, and I am combination. I wont be repurchasing this.

Estee Lauder Double Wear – This is my holy grail IT foundation you guys!!! I used to wear it a long time ago and came back to it last year and I am not even in the market for anything else anymore. This provides medium/full coverage, lasts alllllll day long, looks great on my skin and has the perfect shade for me. Which is hard to find for some reason. Love love love this stuff and I have recommended it to several people. Have and will repurchase.

Fun tip, you see my foundation bottles up there? When I am running low and can’t pump/pour out anymore, I take a small brush and scrape out on the sides. I get about two more weeks out of my foundations doing this. You gotta save money where you can, am I right?! Have you used any of these things? Which products are you finishing up right now that you would repurchase?

    Why have I not used more products from lush? The only thing I’ve used are the bath bombs but I clearly need to try some of these other products! I just love when other people talk about what works for them in the beauty product apartment! Great post girl and I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

    Everyone talks so highly about Angels on Bare skin but I likely won’t buy it now! I can’t stand the stuff getting everywhere… another of their products did that and drove me nuts. I also love the Estee foundation! You’re the one who recommended it to me!

    Ha, you’ve been praising that foundation since we met!!! I might just need to trust you and try it out. Also, I have a hard time getting into Lush things that aren’t the bath bombs — I have a massage bar that smells amazing, but it makes the bathtub so slippery!

    Doublewear is my jam! I can’t live without it. Tried a few other foundations last year and nothing compares to it!

    I love the Angels on Bare Skin but I have the same problem with being able to use it up before it goes bad, even the small size. Mostly I just wash my face with honey but when it needs a little extra exfoliation, that is always my go to. Might just give it up though, I hate wasting it! it’s $$$

    I’ve always wondered about Lancome foundations because I love their mascara so much and I think I’m definitely going to consider trying that one sometime soon because it sounds like just what I’m looking for! Using a brush to get out the ends of the foundation is such a good idea- it’s way too expensive not to use every last drop, haha

    The foundation–the EL is the holy grail for so many!! I love it on my oily-skinned clients when I freelance. It’s the best!!

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston March 8, 2017 at 10:18 am

    I’ve actually never tried any Estee Lauder products so I definitely think I should start – especially with the foundation!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo March 8, 2017 at 11:28 am

    I’m too cheap to use any of these products 😉 If you cant find it at Target, I probably dont use it 🙂 haha

    I have a container of the ultrabland and I just don’t like it that much =/ I feel like it doesn’t make my face very clean, although it is good for getting makeup off. I really loved their cosmetic lad as a moisturizer, but I found a product from alba that is significantly cheaper 😉

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders March 8, 2017 at 1:50 pm

    That’s such a great hack for getting more usage out of your foundations! I tried using that MUFE foundation, but like you I thought that it was too dry for my skin. I still love their normal liquid foundation though! I’ll have to check out the Estee Lauder brand though because I know how you much you love it!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista March 8, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    I need to try that Lancome foundation, and yesss to LUSH! I’ve never tried their makeup remover, that needs to change 😀

    My sister gave me a little tube of that Cotz stuff and it’s amazing!!!!!! I definitely will be repurchasing. These are some of my favorite posts to read!

    i’m 100% on board with using brushes to scrape out product from the bottles. If only they made the bottom part a screw-on –then it would be SO MUCH easier.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph March 9, 2017 at 12:03 pm

    I love LUSH products but don’t use those two. I hate when i can’t use things by the use by date.

  • Reply chelsea jacobs March 10, 2017 at 9:29 am

    I love lush, but I’m with you-it’s so annoying to have to clean up all the little stuff that gets everywhere!

  • Reply Laura March 10, 2017 at 9:16 pm

    I’ve wondered about how Makeup Forever is. I’ve thought about buying it but wondered the same thing about the colors. This was helpful!
