Empties │ The products I've used up recently [Skincare]


Hello, lovelies! How are you today?
I have (again) cumulated several empty bottles and it's time to tell you what I think about them, if they have worked for me and whether I will repurchase them or not. There are way too many products for one article, so I'm splitting them in two, so today I'll be talking about my skincare (face) empties.
So, let's get to it!



Estée Lauder Enlighten. Dark spot correcting Night Serum

Where should I begin? Well, of course, the conclusion: I have not liked it, it has done nothing for my dark spots and I will not repurchase it. If you really want to know more, then keep reading. I have quite (in)famous dark spots on my face. Some of them were born with me, others just sprung on my face during my second pregnancy and came here to stay. I don't hate them, I don't try to hide them under concealer. But every once in a while I would try some special treatment to see if it works. I have followed a quite intensive anti-spot skincare routine last year (read here) and got tired of it. I tried this Estée Lauder serum before purchasing it, I had received several samples, and I loved it. I  have loved every sample from Estée Lauder, and bought every full sized afterward, and been disappointed every-single-time. What can I say, Estée... you and me... we got a problem.

Korres Wild Rose Advanced brightening and nourishing Face oil

I don't like face oils. Let me reformulate. I used to think I didn't like face oils. But this one, I love it! This little boy smells like roses, is rich, but sinks in quickly, leaving my face soft in the spot and radiant the next morning! I have bought it last year and lasted me over 6 months (I only use it at night and only 3-4 drops). I used this before or after my serum (depending on the serum ingredients) but always before my moisturizer. As the weather got warmer I am using it less and less, but I'm definitely going to repurchase it when the cold months arrive again. I'm also thinking to buy other items of this brand just to try because so far I have had very good experiences!


L'oréal Paris Revitalift Filler [HA] 

I have received this eye cream as press sample last year and I loved it so much that I've repurchased it! I think it really makes a difference to my under eye area, especially when I am lacking sleep. So this is one I definitely recommend and I will repurchase (as soon as I go through all my 4 opened eye creams at the moment!!). If you want to know more details about it, please check my review here.

La Roche Posay Pigmentclar Skin Tone Correcting Daily Moisturizer


Ok, now it seems I'm completely obsessed with skin tone and dark spots, but I'm not! I purchased this because it was on sale and it has SPF 30, it is a very lightweight moisturizer and it pairs fantastically with all my foundations (not all moisturizers with SPF are compatible with makeup, some just peel, or clash!!) This is a very nice product for warm months, and although it didn't improve the appearance of my dark spots, it kept my skin hydrated and protected from the sun. There is also a serum from this range which is advised to use in combination with this cream. I'm not sure I want to try the serum but I really liked the cream and I'll probably repurchase it.

Reficis Soie-douce Moisturizing Serum


I have reviewed this product here, but I think it deserves a second shout out because this is seriously good. The ingredients list is so freaking clean! And it moisturizes my skin like no other product I've tried (and I have tried a few, believe you me).
I don't need this level of moisture during the warmer months, but for winter is just perfect. If dry patches are your worst nightmare, then you should try this! It is pricey, and I wish it was a bit more affordable (just because I'm poor) but it is not more expensive than Estée Lauder's serums (which btw do nothing for my skin).

So, that was it!  Let me know if you need more extensive info on any of the products that I shortly present here, please do not hesitate to ask for it in the comments!

Have a wonderful day!

Love,
Nati
