    What’s the last beauty empties you’ve finished and would you repurchase it? 🙂

    • Belén Jiménez says:

      definately my Lancome miracle air de teint foundation, my shiseido pureness moisturizer and my too faced better than sez mascara. Holy grails for me!!

    • Shannon McBroom says:

      It cosmetics cc cream, and L’Oréal lash paradise Mascara. I always got through my foundations and Mascaras the quickest. 🙂 oh and my batieste dry shampoo! ❤️

    • JulieBee says:

      Flor Jazmin so true for the Better Skin concealer. It really is a good dupe for the Shape Tape. Just wrote the exact same thing in my minimalist makeup group last month.

    • Triin V says:

      Mixa optimal tolerance micellar water! Garnier one burns my eyes, Eucerin one dries my face out. Mixa one is the cheapest and it is amazing!!

    • Eliza Nowacka says:

      Batiste dry shampoo (mostly the cherry one), DR.JART+ Ceramidin Gel Cream, Simple Cleansing Water and Mac Brave 🙂 <3

    I wouldn’t recommend the ordinary to anyone who’s not a skincare geek. Lol. You need to know the ingredients and how to match it to your skin needs and other products you’re using with. Retinol is known for peeling your skin and you won’t see the good results till later on. You could still use it as a spot treatment tho. I would recommend the Buffet and the oils if you want to try something out from the line 🙂

    Vichy worked for sensetive skin? Really? If you have problems with shine, I highly recommend Murad mattifyer with spf. It is amazing! Also, something similar to LiquidGold is Neostrata’s toner for problmatic skin. Theonewith 8% glycolic is amazing! And cheaper than Alpha H

  4. Linda Passos says:

    Funny I always use twice more conditioner than shampoo, maybe cause have much longer hair than yours :-/ I love Indeed line here in the UK we buy it in Boots, using Retinol and loving it (warning you will peel off till your skin gets used to it, but it always happen with retinol products, that’s what they are for in the end… to regenerate and get rid of old dead skin if it doesn’t then it’s not doing anything ;-)) 🙂 xx

    • BeautywithEmilyFox says:

      My hair is quite long but I usually double shampoo and I’ll often use a hair mask instead of conditioner!
      I’ve used retinol in the past but this formula was just way too strong! 🙂
