My April Empties

I know that I am a little behind but here are my empties for the month April. If you follow my Instagram account you know that I post my AM and PM routines often. I don't often use the same products everyday as I like to switch it up. I listen to how my skin is feeling and because my skin is sensitive and acne prone, I may use a different set of products depending on how my skin is behaving. Plus, since I do not use the same products everyday, I go through my products a lot less. On the flip side though, I have a shit ton of products! Storage is a nightmare and another story and blog post! Here are the products I got through last month...

Here are my empties:

Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX - I bought this in a mini kit from Target for $5 here but have used up full sizes of this famous product. I have a mixed feeling on this sleeping mask because while I do like it, I know there are other sleeping masks out there with better ingredients that offer better results. So why do I keep buying it?? Because I love the scent, the feel and it's easily accessible.

Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repair Pack - I first got a sample of this at the Amore Pacific store years ago while visiting Chicago. This stuff smells like Strawberry Quick or Strawberry Yan Yan. Again, I love the scent, how it feels but I have other wash offs that offer better results. However this is not a bad product at all, probably why I keep coming back to it. Again, I bought this in a mini kit from Target. I will be hosting a giveaway soon and this set will be in the prize so stay tuned.

Missha Konjac Sponge - I love konjac sponges and I have tried several. This one by Missha is slightly softer than the Etude House one that I am currently using. This is the charcoal version for those with oily or acne prone skin. I would recommend this for any skin type. Just be sure to clean it by soaking the sponge in boiling water for 5 minutes and throw them out completely after 1-2 ish months. Make sure you store them probably too. If you live in humid areas keep the sponge in the refrigerator between uses. You can find this here!

Supple Preparation Facial Toner - This is a ph balancing toner that does help to balance my skin after cleansing. This does calm irritation and is very soothing but leaves my skin a bit tacky. They have upgraded the formula and I am dying to try it!

Rich Moist Soothing Serum - Out of the line this is my favorite product. I love how calming and soothing it made my skin feel. This was a lightweight gel that absorbed quickly and left my skin soft.

Rich Moist Soothing Cream - This cream was just ok for me. Yes, it did calm and soothe my skin and provide deep hydration but I much prefer the Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream that I reviewed here over this cream. This didn't absorb into my skin very easily because I think it was too rich for my skin. This would be a great option that prefer a  heavier style cream.

Paula's Choice 2% BHA Gel - Although this is a good formulated product that has the correct ph needed for exfoliation, I much prefer the 2% BHA liquid over this version. This felt sticky no matter how thin of a layer I applied. (Get $10 off your first order here)

Cosrx Cotton Pads - These are a-maz-ing! These are a soft, quitted style cotton pads that don't break apart or leave a trail of cotton behind. Plus they are under $3 a box here!
