May 2019 - Monthly Empties & Month in Masks

Here's a look at my May makeup garbage (I know it's a little late ok):


May 2019 - Monthly Empties
Some products may have been received as PR samples or in giveaways - this post contains affiliate links

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ~ sample size shown here (full size is $24.00 CAN). A leave-on lip mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips overnight.

This lip sleeping mask is amazing! It made my Best of 2018 Makeup products because it was so good! This little sample lasted me for a couple of weeks, so this was a handy little sample and this is the best formula!
Repurchase: YES!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment "Rose" ~ sample size (full size is $32.00). A bestselling lip treatment—and a cult-favorite among all who try it, including Hollywood’s elite—that moisturizes, protects, and smooths the lips.

This is one of my favourite tinted lip balms of all time - basically holy grail. It's moisturizing, long-lasting, and adds the right hint of colour to the lips that I wear it with a face of makeup and feel like my look is finished! 
This has been in my favs since December 2016!
Repurchase: Yes!

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara ~ sample size (full size is $26.00 US). Our ultimate mascara combines drama, volume and curl with a carbon-black finish to intensify your lashes like no other.

This wasn't a stand out mascara for me - the brush was skinny and curved and it just didn't add the volume that I need in my lashes. It was decent at curling; but, that's not really what I'm looking for! 
Repurchase: No

The Face Shop Chia Seed No Shine Hydrating Water ~ $35.00. A pore cleansing toner that replenishes skin with moisturizing Chia Seed Extract while removing excess oil with Cotton Seed Extract.

This was a gentle toner; but, I didn't really notice that it had much effect on my skin overall - it was fine. This also doesn't look like it's available anymore.
Repurchase: No

Biotherm Blue Therapy Red Algae Lift Up Cream ~ $89.00 CAN. It visibly helps reinforce the skin’s youthful structure: contours appear re-defined, skin feels firm, smooth and looks radiant.

I LOVE this moisturizer - I don't think I've really found anything that I love using in both the morning and evening and I used this everyday day and night! It made me monthly favourite in March 2019 and I just thought this worked so well and smoothing and hydrating my skin! 
Repurchase: I need to! 

May 2019 - Monthly Empties

Makeup Remover Wipe x2 ~ $? 

These came in my hotel room when I was out of town - these were just okay; but, I struggle with travelling with makeup remover so these served their purpose.
Repurchase: No

Vichy Liftctiv Serum 10 Supreme ~ sample size (full size is $58.95 CAN). Our best-selling anti-wrinkle face serum featuring 10% natural Rhamnose, now boosted with Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid.

I thought this was fine - I really like Vichy Serums; but, of course I prefer the Mineral 89. While I use lots of anti-aging products, it's not something I need regularly as my serum. 
Repurchase: Not right now

Su:m37 Flawless Regenerating Essence x2 ~ sample (10 samples for 2,800 Won - approx. $2.40 USD). 

This serum is a creamy texture and it made my skin feel nice, but it was a little too medicinal smelling.. 
Repurchase: Probably not 

Filorga Anti-Aging Micellar Solution Physiological Cleanser and Makeup Remover ~ travel size (full size is $40.60 CAN). This Anti-Aging Micellar Solution by Filorga is a fragrance-free cleansing liquid that removes even waterproof makeup and ensures effortless, gentle makeup removal from the eye area. 

I received this in my LookFantastic Advent Calendar and I thought it was okay - it didn't fully remove my eye makeup so I didn't think it was amazing. It was good for face makeup, so just okay for me. 
Repurchase: Not likely....

Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying Daily Skin Booster ~ sample shown (full size is $39.95 CAN.) Give your skin a daily boost of strength. 

This is a truly amazing product - this is just a little sample; but, I am already on my third or forth full size bottle of this booster. It made my 2017 Yearly Skincare Favorites and it's been a staple in my rotation ever since! This has just done wonders for my skin - I think it has totally improved my skin's strength, hydration, and appearance. The best. 
Repurchase: Yes, when I use my up full size! 

Life Brand - Life 3-In-1 Facial Cleansing Wipes ~ $2.99 CAN for 15 wipes. For all skin types, cleanses, tones and removes eye makeup, 100% plant-based fibres.

These are okay - I'm trying to cut down on my wipes, so I can actually usually stretch these out for 2 days of use. These ones are fine, they are quilted and I think they do a decent job. 
Repurchase: Maybe, they are affordable 

May 2019 - Monthly Empties

Julep Mighty Nail and Cuticle Serum ~ $28.00 US. Transform dry & damaged cuticles. 

I'm pretty sure that I've had this for 5 years, so it's impressive that I've finally finished this. Julep is over now too, so it's been a little too long. This was decent and I liked the little clicky pen bottle. 
Repurchase: No

Nivea Care Intensive Nourishing Cream ~ $15.99 CAN for full size (sample size shown). Thanks to our new revolutionary hydrating complex, it melts into the skin leaving your skin well-hydrated and touchably soft.

This lotion is pretty good - its got a bit of an odd smell; but, it absorbs quickly, works well and is very hydrating!
Repurchase: Not likely 


The Body Shop Frosted Plum Shimmer Lotion ~ sample size 60ml for approx. $3.12 CAN. 

This is a seasonal product from a couple of years ago in advent calendar and the scent is nice; but, it basically pure shimmer. And, I'm someone who likes shimmery - this basically just adds a layer of glitter to the skin and your hands and everything is covered. I couldn't finish it. 
Repurchase: No

Tony Moly Panda's Dream White Magic Cream ~ $13.29 CAN. Infused with Niacinamide and Bamboo Sap, our Magic Cream is a hydrating brightening cream that reduces the appearance of dull skin, redness, and dark spots by naturally brightening the complexion. 

How adorable is this hand cream?! I used it so sparingly so that I could keep this panda on display as long as I could. It's weird because I like the scent of this lotion in the tub, but I didn't really like it once it was on. Decent hand cream - can't complain. 
Repurchase: Maybe! 

Rubie's Spirit Gum Adhesive ~ $10.00 CAN. Spirit gum clear-drying adhesive. Use to apply prosthetics and hair, including mustaches and beards.

This just got used up for a costume party - it was a decent spirit gum and lasted forever. 
Repurchase: Eventually


Boo Bamboo Natural Sunscreen Spray ~ travel size shown (full size is $29.96 CAN). Boo Bamboo Natural Sunscreen Spray with Bamboo Extract provides you with natural Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection. 

This was a fine spray sunscreen - I love Boo Bamboo products and I thought this worked well. It looks like it's discontinued now though.
Repurchase: Doesn't look like I can... 

Vichy Ideal Soleil Sport - Ultra-Light Refreshing Lotion SPF 60 ~ $29.95 CAN. High protection sunscreen against UVA/UVB rays, for face and body. 80 minutes water & sweat resistance. 

Vichy makes really good sunscreen - this works so well and offers a ton of protection. I love their formulas and they aren't heavy or sticky or uncomfortable. 
Repurchase: Yes, I would! 


May 2019 - Monthly Empties

Garnier Fructis Style Hold and Flex Ultimate Control Spray ~ travel size shown (full size is $5.49 CAN). The 1st Garnier Fructis Style Spray With Bamboo Extract And Anti-Humidity Protection.

This is a fine hold hairspray - it's one of the only ones I can find in the travel size so I usually purchase these around travel times and then finish them. 
Repurchase: Yes, I will again

Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo ~ $4.47 CAN. Give your hair the essential nourishment it needs by locking in moisture with Dove Daily Moisture Conditioner with MicroMoisture Serum.

Dove Daily Moisture Conditioner ~ $4.47 CAN. Protect your hair from daily wear and tear with Dove Daily Moisture Conditioner. 

I actually quite liked this shampoo and conditioner - I thought my hair was clean and looked good after using this. 
Repurchase: Yes, I probably would 


May 2019 - Monthly Empties

Marvis Aquatic Mint Toothpaste ~ $10.00 CAN. Marvis Aquatic Mint Toothpaste has a sweet and cool touch of mint with the cool freshness of the sea. 

Okay, I'm pretty much a full convert to this fancy toothpaste - I love this! It made my monthly favourites back in April 2019 and Marvis makes really unique flavours.
 This is super cooling and refreshing and even my husband liked it and thought it was worth the price! 
Repurchase: Yes! 

Secret Clinical Antiperspirant and Deodorant Soft Solid ~ $7.97 CAN. It absorbs odour while releasing scent, to keep you smelling clean and feeling dry.

This works well - no complaints at all. 

Clear Care Plus Cleaning and Disinfecting Solution ~ $19.97 CAN. Not only does CLEAR CARE® PLUS Cleaning and Disinfecting Solution clean and disinfect your contact lenses with the bubbling power of hydrogen peroxide, it also surrounds your lenses with long-lasting moisture.

This is a great contact solution - I switched to a hydrogen peroxide solution over a year ago (with only one mishap of not letting it rinse long enough). This is at least a 6 hour solution; but, it's great! Much better at cleaning than regular solutions!
Repurchase: Yes! 

Sesame Street Baby Shampoo - Calming Lavender Scent ~ $?

This was good - I loved using this in the bath for Elliott as a bubble bath and as a body wash as well. 
Repurchase: Most likely! 

So, for May I used up 27 products, which is pretty good. I didn't use a ton of makeup products up this month, but still did pretty good! 

Here is a look at the Masks I used in May:

May 2019 - Monthly Empties

Soo'AE Purifying Black Charcoal Mask ~ $3.77 CAN. Charcoal’s potent detoxifying and brightening abilities fuse with cultured green tea and green caviar extracts to provide instant clarity and moisture to relieve dry and tired looking skin.

This was really good and felt like it deep cleaned my skin and my face looked nice and clear the next morning! 
Repurchase: Yes

Zymogen Houttuynia Cordata Ferment Mask ~ $23.83 CAN for 6 masks. Contains houttuynia cordata ferment that soothes skin troubles by providing sebum control and pore care, and controlling the germs on skin for vibrant and clear skin.

I thought this mask was really good! It targets acne and I thought this really cleared up my skin after using this! 
Repurchase: I think I would! 

May 2019 - Monthly Empties

Etude House 0.2 Therapy Air Mask - Pomegranate ~ $1.30 US. Hypo-allergenic mask sheets that are good for sensitive skin type.

This mask is for "energy glow" and this was fine - it's a pretty typical mask that refreshed and hydrated my skin. 
Repurchase: Maybe... 

Bawdy Shake It Butt Sheet Mask ~ $11.00 CAN/$9.00 USSheet masks for your butt—two separate sheets, one for each cheek—formulated with marine algae to firm your behind.

Yes, this is an actual butt mask for your butt and it was so much fun to use! I have a whole review of this mask here and you can check out all my thoughts there. But (haha), this was really fun to use and thought my bum was very smooth and hydrated. 
Repurchase: Yes

When Beauty and the Breast Bio-Cellulose Body Sheet Mask ~ $11.04 CAN on Lucky Vitamin or $12.00 US). Their industry best technology contains patented ingredient volufiline from Sederma, France, for skin plumping and volumizing for beautiful feminine silhouette. 

I loved this mask because it was a biocellulose mask and these adhered so well and left the skin feeling super hydrated (yes, it's for the boobs and I loved getting in to the body masks in May!) You can see my full review on this mask here
Repurchase: Yes! 

Muff Masque ~ $14.00 US. The only one on the market, Muff masque is an amazing empowering sheet masque for "your lips below the hips".

When you think things couldn't get any more racy from a boob and butt mask, they can! Basically, Muff Masque is a sheet mask for your vagina that is infused with plant based ingredients. The mask is meant to leave "down there" feeling refreshed, soothed, and hydrated. You can see my full thoughts on this mask here
Repurchase: I might! 

May 2019 - Monthly Empties

7th Heaven Charcoal Tonic Masque ~ $4.99 CAN. Get a seriously deep clean with our 2nd skin natural Sheet Mask. In just 5-10 minutes our blend of Activated Charcoal and purifying Green Tea draws out dirt and grime whilst absorbing excess oil and minimising pores. 

I really thought this mask worked well - m skin was very clean and refreshed after using this. It smelled a little strong; but, the fit was really nice! 
Repurchase: Likely 

Mad Beauty Disney Princess Face Mask Collection ~ £13.99/$23.95 CAN. This range of Face masks features one each with different soothing & calming properties with images of Jasmine, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella  & Ariel.

Although these masks have different main ingredients, I did find overall that they all had the same results. They did leave my skin moisturized - and you can check out my full review on all of these masks here! These were fun to use; but, they didn't offer much beyond moisturizing. Also, why is only Ariel super colourful?! 

So, I also used 11 masks in May in addition to the 27 products that I used up!
