Empties Are A Good Thing

Hi friends and happy Friday! All of the sudden I have a bunch of things that need to be replaced. Empties are a good thing. Why, you ask? Because it means they were a hit. There’s nothing worse than buying a product only to realize you don’t like it, it doesn’t work, or both. That’s actually one of the reasons I like to purchase health and beauty products from Ulta. If something doesn’t work out, you can return it, so the risk is minimal.

HAIR BIOLOGY FULL & VIBRANT SHAMPOO – I did an entire post on the Hair Biology Volumizing line here. This is my 3rd bottle of shampoo. Since I double wash, I go through it faster than the conditioner. I really do like the way my hair feels and acts after using this and the price point is excellent.

HAIR BIOLOGY THICKENING TREATMENT – Also my 3rd bottle of this and I even gave a bottle to my mom. I can tell this gives my hair more volume when I use it before drying.

CITY BEAUTY SKIN PERFECTING DAILY VEIL – Going on my second tube of this. I’ve been sharing it in my IG stories for a while. Here’s what I love about it. Just as the name suggests, it gives your skin what looks like a veil. It has just a really beautiful finish, and it has SPF 39. I love that it’s two products in one. It’s great to wear under your makeup or alone. You can use the code LISAR15 for 15% off anything on the City Beauty site. (I love their matte lip and glosses too)

LIVING PROOF DRY SHAMPOO – I’ve been using this for a few years, and continue to purchase it. I now wash my hair twice a week instead of everyday, and this is a great way to touch it up between washings.

COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD MICRO-MINERAL RESURFACING SCRUB – This is my favorite exfoliator. It’s just the perfect texture. Not to whimpy, but also not harsh. I keep it in the shower and use it about 3 days a week.

COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD VITAMIN C – This is the first straight up Vit C that I’ve used, and I really do think it’s helped with my dark spots on my face. Here’s the thing with Vit C. You need one that is in a container that’s not getting air. A tube like this is a good option. If you’re using a bottle with a dropper, every time you take that dropper out, air is getting in and then the efficacy is reduced. Just a little tidbit for you there.

COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD AGE RENEWAL SUPER SERUM – Y’all know I’m a HUGE fan of serums. They’re my favorite because they absorb right in to your skin. I use this one every day as part of my makeup routine. It goes on right after my Vit C. I love that it takes care of six signs of aging: texture, dehydration, elasticity, fine lines, radiance, and tone.

TRINNY LONDON EYE2EYE (COLOR VIRTUE) – As I’ve shared with you before, I love a cream eye shadow, and this color is one of my all time favorites. I’m a neutral eye shadow girl through and through and this one delivers just the right amount shimmer and light.

TRINNY LONDON BFF REBALANCE – This is my favorite “foundation” that’s also a serum. (I bounce back and forth between it and one by IT Cosmentics, but this is my preference) It’s a moderately buildable coverage that balances shine with a slight matte coverage. (sign me up) It’s good for oily skin and skin that might be prone to blemishes.


So now you can see why I say empties are a good thing. Have you tried any of these? If you have, what are your thoughts on them? Let me know in the comments. I’m always curious about how you find products.
