[2022] July Empties & Boots Haul

4:15:00 PM

It's time for another Empties post !
In July (last month) my empties weren't as much as June's, probably because I tried to finish a lot of products during June, so July was only about finishing what was left from June.

But despite the few empty products last month I am still happy and content to still be able to finish products and cleared out some space. I'm just glad I can finish and throw away products every month no matter how many it is. Because that is still a progress to me :)

So, yup ! The above picture shows you just how many products I was able to finish in July.
Not a lot of them but a progress still a progress, right ? ;)

Oh and because this will be a short post so I will also include a couple of new products that I am currently adding to my collection (a.k.a "new-in" products that I recently hauled from Boots store).

Okay, so here we go with the Empties first ...

S K I N C A R E :

Yves Rocher Pure System Clarifying Toner
I finally finished this exfoliating toner! Toners are usually the fastest one that I can finish because I love using toners and I always use them everyday. But this particular toner took a while for me to finish. Probably because this was not my fave toner to use. It has thick lotion texture and I like my toners on the watery side, so I seldom used this and kept reaching for other toners instead. But for the last 2 months I finally determined to finish this one off as it was a good toner to use for when my skin is in dry condition (I have combination skin by the way), because the thick formula give some extra moisture to the skin.
> Would I Repurchase ? No
> Current Replacement : Chiyou Succinic Acid Exfoliating Toner

Charis M+ Madecassoside Cica Cream
This was also one of those products that took me a while to finish. But this one was probably because it contains many product inside the tube, so it took some time for me to finish as I only need a small amount to cover my face every time I used this (I have a small face 😏). But I do like this for every day lotion because you can literally use this anytime you want for extra moisture without leaving any greasy residue. I have already reviewed it HERE (including the link on where you could buy it :)
> Would I Repurchase ? No, because I still have other products to finish, but I do RECOMMEND it :)
> Current Replacement : Nothing. Still using up my SNP Prep Vitaronic Gel Cream

M A K E - U P :

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
One of my fave, because it has thick formula and dark black color, so it will show on my lashes :)  
It's also buildable without creating any gunk, and waterproof too!
> Would I Repurchase ? Yes
> Current Replacement : Barry M "That's How I Roll Mascara"

Pixy Lip Cream in 12 Mild Peach
Of all the Pixy Lip Creams that I got in a set (given generously by the brand for review purposes) this one is the first one I finished. So it's certain that I used this one the most. It is a beautiful neutral soft coral that's perfect for everyday use. You can also see swatches and read full review of it HERE.
> Would I Repurchase ? No because I have too many
> Current Replacement : Nothing. Still using up the rest of my opened lipsticks ;)

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal
This was a waste, really. I'm not proud to say it but this was one of those purchases that I regretted and never used, so it just sits there until it can no longer be used. I felt so guilty for that, because that means I have wasted a product (and wasted money too). This was a case of "wrong shades". I bought the wrong shade of Becca highlighter and I have tried to use it but the shade just too dark and didn't work for my skin tone even as a bronzer, so I end up never using it at all. And now I think it already expired and needs to go away.
> Would I Repurchase ? No
> Current Replacement : Nothing. Still using up The Manizer Sisters palette by The Balm

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in #045 Romantic
This was an old product that I randomly found in my dresser. I suppose this has gone pass its expiry date too so this one must also go! It was a lovely one though, I used to love Revlon Kissable Balm Stains :)
> Would I Repurchase ? No, I don't think it still being produced
> Current Replacement : Nothing. Still using up the rest of my opened lipsticks ;)

M I S C E L L A N E O U S :

Soon100Soo Disinfectant Spray
This is a Korean brand disinfectant spray and this was my favorite for a long time. I used to stock this up because I love using it. This was my choice of disinfectant sprays for many months during the pandemic. Simply because it has no scent at all - which I find was really comfortable to use, because it won't be a nuisance for people around me when I sprayed it (because several people might not stand strong scents). A no-scent disinfectant was also nice to use for when we want to have meals, because the scent would not mix with the scent of the food we're about to eat hehe Well, that's was just my personal preference :)
> Would I Repurchase ? Yes!
> Current Replacement : Right now I'm trying to finish a couple of disinfectant sprays that I got free (from brands, various places, etc)

Ookayy... That were all my empties for July. As I told you it was just a couple of products that I either managed to finish or products that I found already passed its expiration date so needs to be binned. A total of 7 full size products last month, and I'm still happy with the amount considering they were all full size - which is harder to finish than sample sizes. 

I'm also happy that I finally finished a couple products that I have been using for a long time and just can't wait to get rid of them hehe 

Anyway, as I was saying, I'm still happy with July's project empties result. It's not about how many products I finished but the reason I'm doing this Empties post is so that I can go back and see which products work for me and which ones don't. And also because I don't want to waste products anymore so I tried to be diligent in finishing products I'm currently using before opening a new one (unless I need to use new products for review purposes). So I'm still happy I can clear 7 products (and all of them were full size products too!) and cleared a little more space in my vanity :)

Now as promised, I have an extra photo containing some of my newly purchased products that just recently joined my vanity :) 

Because I have emptied quite a lot of products since June and July so I have some vacant spots in my vanity and I also needed some new replacements for the products I finished. I didn't always buy new ones every time I emptied a product, because sometimes I do have the replacement already in my stock drawer. If I don't have any stock of the particular product THEN I would shop. So I tried to be discipline with my money for not always buying new products unless I cleared some space in my vanity and/or stock drawer.

Here is a small haul from Boots - (Boots has just recently opened here in my country for the last few years and believe it or not this was the first time I went there and bought something hehe) :

- Soap & Glory Glamour Clean Micellar Water (the sole reason why I went to Boots is Soap & Glory 😁)
- Boots Cucumber 2-in-1 Face Cleanser & Toner
- Dear Me Beauty X KFC Primer + Foundation Breathable Cushion in NO2 Nude Beige
- Etude House Drawing Eye Brow in 04 Dark Grey (This was emergency purchase. Didn't really want this but I was in urgent need of eyebrow pencil that day and it's the only one available in my color)
- Boots Coconut & Almond Lip Balm Stick
