Empty Product Reviews - January 2023


I told myself I would stop doing these posts to free up time in the new year, but we're back by popular demand!


O'Keefe's Working Hands Cream ($7.99 for 3oz): The best hand lotion! It's the only one that has saved my hands from cracking and bleeding all winter. This was my first time with the squeeze tube instead of the tub and I saw no difference in performance. I like the tube better for convenience.

Rating: 10/10

Would I repurchase? Yes


Kosas Chemistry AHA Serum Deodorant, Serene Clean ($16): I've been using this for a while now and I love it! I think I like the beach scent better but this scent is nice too. It's not an antiperspirant, so you will have wetness but it does a good job of preventing BO. I also love clear roll-on deodorants because you don't get white marks on your clothes.

Would I repurchase? Yes


Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Super Moisture Shampoo for Damaged Hair ($39 for 16oz): I didn't love this, and surely didn't love it enough for the price! I think I'm over the "clean" ingredients obsession I've been on for years. I like a shampoo that lathers and makes my hair feel clean. This didn't lather too much and didn't seem to repair any damage. The scent was ok but not awesome.

Would I repurchase? No


EOS Shea Better Shave Cream, Sensitive Skin ($5.79): This was ok, but pretty thick so you have to make sure to use it on wet legs so it thins out a little, otherwise it'll clog your razor.

Would I repurchase? No


elf Pure Skin Cleanser ($9 for full size): This was nice and felt smooth on my skin. I think it did a decent job of cleansing and not drying out my skin. I think it's a good option for the price!

Would I repurchase? Yes


The INKEY List Oat Cleansing Balm ($11.99 for full size): I really liked this! The balmy consistency feels a little heavy, but I liked that it felt like it was really moisturizing my skin as it was cleansing. I did break out a little while using it, but it's hard to tell if it was from this cleanser or not.

Would I repurchase? Yes


Essence Bye Bye Panda Eyes Mascara ($4.99): I was looking for drugstore tubing mascaras and this was considered one but I didn't have the same experience taking it off as I do with my other tubing mascaras. I just remember it not being easy to take off and nothing about it wowed me.

Would I repurchase? No


Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector (brand discontinued): I used this on a client and the makeup looked so bad on top of it that I had to take it off and start over...every makeup artist's nightmare! I wanted to give it a 0 but I had used it on one or two clients previous to that experience and it wasn't great but wasn't quite as bad. Becca closed their brand, so you probably can't find it anymore anyway.

Would I repurchase? No


NYX Gel Liner & Smudger (Discontinued): I loved these! They were great for liner or smudging all over the lid for a smokey eye. The only problem is they transferred easily to the lid so I had to set it with shadow or tell clients to keep their eyes closed for a couple minutes while it dried. I'm using the Inglot gel liners now and so far, they're great!

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase? No (only because they're discontinued!)
