Cumulative Empties Aug to Dec 2020 – Skincare

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude! Happy New Year!

Today I have my cumulative empties from August until December – I’m not using up products as quickly as I used to, so haven’t been doing my monthly empties posts. Let’s take a look at all the skincare that I’ve finished up, and I’ll let you know if I plan to repurchase or not, and link to the original reviews.

Skincare:

Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF 30 – I liked this travel sized sunscreen, it didn’t have a white cast on me and didn’t feel heavy or greasy. The full size is on the pricy side, so I would only re-purchase if on sale.

Moor Spa Cleansing Milk – This was from a PR package, and I really loved it. Creamy cleansers are so awesome for cold weather skincare. I would purchase this is I didn’t have so many cleansers to finish up.

Insensya Illuminate Serum – Another PR item. Quite possibly the best serum I’ve tried for all of 2020! At the top of my wishlist currently as I’ve a few serums to finish up.

Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic – My skin hated this. I finished it up for cleaning up swatches as my face did not tolerate it.

5th Dimension Sub Rosa Serum – This was a nice oil-based serum. I have several oils and serums to use up, so no purchase for me at this time.

The Inkey List Bakuchiol and Polyglutamic Acid – The Bakuchiol was a good “starter” retinoid type serum cream, but I prefer something a little stronger. The Polyglutamic Acid made my skin feel nice and hydrated, but it smelled like paint (yuck). I don’t plan to repurchase, but have my eye on other products from the brand.

Cosmessential The Calm and B-Three Facial Serums – These were PR samples. Both were lovely – The Calm was great for when my skin was super sensitive, and B-Three was great for when my skin was “normal”. I have serums to use up, so no plans to purchase right now.

Goldfaden MD Vital Boost Moisturizer – I really liked this moisturizer, it was light yet hydrating and somewhat brightening. I have other moisturizers to finish up so no plan to purchase a full size.

Coming up later this week I have my Haircare, Bodycare and Makeup Finishes.

Empties March 2020

Hello, hello!

Today I have my monthly empties post for you. I didn’t finish up as much as I had hoped, but progress is progress when it comes to using up the things in my stash and not wasting them! I’ll include links to my original reviews and let you know if I would want to re-purchase either right away or eventually.

Haircare:

Empties March 2020 1

EVOLVh UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque – This was a PR sample. I loved this hair mask so much, and it is on my wishlist to buy the full size as soon as I use up another mask in my stash. Review is here.

Rahua Classic Shampoo & Conditioner – These were from my Petit Vour subscription. I liked them a lot. I’d like to try more from this brand – maybe for wavy/curly or dry hair. Review is here.

Cake Beauty The Posh Wash and The Soft Serve – These smell so good, and work well with my hair, so I’m sure I’ll eventually buy them again. Review is here.

Skincare and Makeup:

Empties March 2020 - Skincare and Makeup with Moor Spa, Sothys, Essence, Eyes of Horus

Moor Spa Supreme Cream – This was a PR sample. I mainly uses this cream at night, as I prefer something a little lighter in the day time if I’m wearing makeup. I have a few moisturizers in my stash to use up, so no need to even think about purchasing a full size. Review is here.

Sothys Hydra3Ha Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Youth Cream – Another PR sample. This one was great for day or night use. I always need a little hydration boost in the fall and winter months so this worked well for me. I have a few moisturizers in my stash to use up, so no need to even think about purchasing a replacement. Review is here.

Essence Lash Princess Waterproof Mascara – I really liked this mascara, and gave it a score of 6.75 out of 7. I  would definitely re-purchase this one. Review is here.

Eye Of Horus Brow Define – Another Petit Vour box product. This was my very first micro brow pencil. I’ve since purchased one from Essence to try out, but would love to get this one eventually. Review is here.

Essence Make Me Brow Tinted Brow Mascara – I’ve already purchased a new one, it is that good! Reviews are here and here.

So there you have it! Were you able to finish up much this month?

Moor Spa Cleansing Milk, Supreme Cream, Pumpkin Peel + Tension Balm Reviews

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of a selection of goodies from Moor Spa, a Canadian based company, that is 100% naturally sourced, and cruelty free. I received a PR package from them recently containing samples of the Cleansing Milk, Supreme Cream, Pumpkin Peel and Tension Balm in a cute little makeup bag [info in italics taken from the Moor Spa website]

Moor Spa Cleansing Milk, Supreme Cream, Pumpkin Peel, and Tension Balm

Moor Spa’s comprehensive face, body, spa and wellness line is inspired directly by the healing powers of nature. Our products all contain the exclusive Austrian Moor, a nutrient rich plant/flower/herbal complex that enhances skin’s health and appearance.

 

By combining the revitalizing, purifying Moor essence with plant derived cosmeceuticals, unadulterated herbal extracts and pure essential oils, Moor Spa delivers safe and effective solutions to meet your skin and body care needs.

Our products are not 95% or 99% natural, they are 100% naturally derived. Moor Spa is rated as one of the safest product lines in the spa industry by one of the leading consumer product safety organizations in North America.

Let’s take of look at each of the products that I received.

Cleansing Milk:

Moor Spa Cleansing Milk

A mild yet effective blend of cleansing and soothing extracts including chamomile, lavender and arnica.

The Cleansing Milk is targeted for dry and sensitive skin, but I can see it working for all skin types as it is very gentle and effective – lightweight, hydrating and non-greasy. It removes makeup effectively and does not make my skin feel irritated or dried out.

Supreme Cream:

Moor Spa Supreme Cream

Combines the intensely hydrating action of hyaluronate spheres, the rejuvenating effects of sweet potato extract and the anti-oxidant properties of CoEnzyme Q10 – all in one advanced moisturizer.

I really like this one, it is super hydrating and rich without feeling heavy or greasy. As well, it plays nicely with makeup. I think that this is so perfect for winter weather, and I love that it has anti-aging and anti-oxidant ingredients!

Pumpkin Peel:

Moor Spa Pumpkin Peel

This enzymatic exfoliant blends pumpkin pulp, carrot extract, papain and bromelain enzymes, for a healthy, refined appearance.

Although this peeling mask is not for sensitive skin, I’m happy to say that I was actually able to use this enzyme peeling mask without any problems for my sensitive skin. I did, however do a patch test on my wrist first, followed by a second patch test on my neck to test for skin reaction. My skin looks so smooth and glowy after using this peeling mask.

Tension Balm:

Moor Spa Tension Balm

This unique cream helps soothe away muscular tension and headaches including migraines. It combines moor extract with a wealth of soothing botanical extracts including feverfew, linden, peppermint and melissa.

I love this type of product – especially when it is filled with soothing ingredients. I love that it can be used for both headaches and muscle aches. And it smells nice too!
