Skincare Empties | Glossier, The Ordinary + Hada Labo

Skincare Empties | Glossier, The Ordinary + Hada Labo

I just uploaded another YouTube video with some skincare basics that I’ve used up lately, including Glossier, The Ordinary and Hada Labo.  These are all everyday skincare items that I use regularly.  Some were great and will definitely be re-purchased, but there are a few that I won’t be buying again.

Here’s a quick rundown of what I liked:

Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micellar Water. This is a great micellar water / makeup remover.  It works well and is gentle on the skin and eyes.

Glossier Priming Moisturizer (shop with me using this link to get 20% off your first purchase + free shipping over $30).  This is a HG moisturizer for me, so I’ve already repurchased this several times and will always keep this in my rotation.

Glossier Super Bounce (shop with me using this link to get 20% off your first purchase + free shipping over $30).  I love using this lightweight serum to add moisture to my skin.  Another Glossier favorite.

The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2%. I didn’t see results right away, but after going through about half the bottle, I noticed my pores appeared smaller and my skin was smoother.  This is a fairly gentle retinol-based serum, so I recommend it if you want to see how retinol affects your skin.

Hada Labo Age Correcting Eye Cream.  This is a nice eye cream that feels water-based.  It’s not greasy and worked nicely under makeup.  I mentioned the Hada Labo cleanser in my last empties video, and feel like this brand is a really good affordable line (sold at Target).

And here’s what I won’t be repurchasing:

Sunday Riley UFO Oil. I have mixed feelings about this.  I think that with daily use, it helps with breakouts, but it doesn’t work right away on big spots.  Since it’s so expensive, I didn’t feel comfortable running out to repurchase.

Clinique Pep Start Daily UV Protector. I was rooting for you Clinique! *Tyra voice* This is a great formula – lightweight and not greasy.  Unfortunately, there was a hint of a gray cast that makes this unworkable for me on no makeup days.  If you have a lighter skintone, it may be perfect for you.  But if you have my skintone or darker, I wouldn’t recommend it.

I have the video showing up top, but in case you’re having trouble, here’s a link to the video.

    what effects did you see from Hada Labo Age Correcting Eye Cream? 🙂

    • Hey Erika, I think it helped with fine lines due to dryness. I don’t have deep lines around my eyes, but I notice that when my under eyes are dry, there are way more little lines (which are especially noticeable when I put on concealer). This cream has a light texture that soaked in and helped with those annoying little lines ☺️
