Empties – August 2021

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have my empties for the month of August. I didn’t finish up a ton of things this month, but progress is progress when it comes to using things up, and not letting them go to waste. I’ll link you to my original reviews and let you know if I would purchase / re-purchase (eventually) or not.

Empties August 2021

Garnier Skinactive UltraLift Night Cream – Purchased by me. This was a nice night cream, super hydrating, but because it is so highly scented, I would not purchase it again – unless they made an unscented / fragrance free version.

Noughty To The Rescue Intense Moisture Treatment – Purchased by me. I love this hair mask, it has a light sweet almond scent (not over-scented), and makes my hair so soft and hydrated. I would buy this again eventually.

Sun Bum Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30┬áReview – Purchased by me. I had this on my face about 80% of the time all summer, so yeah, I love it. I would buy this again.

Garnier Skinactive Clearly Brighter Even Tone Daily Moisturizer SPF30 – Purchased by me. I used this moisturizer with SPF daily all summer. It is lightweight, hydrating and non-greasy. It isn’t as highly scented as the night cream above. I do prefer mineral SPFs more, but would buy this in a pinch again.

Versed Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum – Purchased by me. This is a great “starter retinol”, super gentle. I might buy it again. I have a few retinol serums on my wishlist that I want to try.

So that’s it – everything that I managed to finish over the past month! Have you tried any of these products?

Sun Bum Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30 Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Sun Bum Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30. I purchased this awhile back from well.ca and have been using it for several weeks. [info in italics taken from the Sun Bum website]

Some of us like to go as au naturel as possible, so we’re really proud to introduce our new zinc-based Mineral collection for your lounging and earth loving pleasure. Lightweight, silky, SPF 30 Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Face Lotion glides on like butter and provides a chemical free sunscreen and primer with a matte finish.

The first time I applied this zinc-based mineral sunscreen, I almost threw it out – it goes on so buttery (and not in a good feeling way, but in a greasy feeling way) – BUT wait – it actually sets to a semi-matte finish that feels very light. The tint is minimal – basically just enough to eliminate the white cast effect that often comes with zinc-based sunscreens. The coverage is light, and basically just evens out my skin. I’ve worn it on its own, with concealer, and with powder and it works well each way. I haven’t tried it with full foundation as I don’t wear foundation in the summer time, but based on how it plays with concealer and powder, I think that it would work well if that’s your thing.

Tint-wise it works well for my fair to light skin tone. I’m not sure how well this would work for medium skin tones, and am doubtful this work work for darker skin tones – I think that there should be several skin tone options – having just one shade is pathetic!
