beauty: January empties.

Recently my lovely friends Lisa & Kaarin of the Pop Fashion Podcast (go listen!) were discussing the concept of 'empties' of beauty products, which is apparently a big thing on Instagram. I recently finished up a few products that I really love, so I thought I'd share those. And bonus, they're all cruelty free!

Burt's Bees Renewal Firming Night Cream / $14 at Target
It occurred to me a while ago that since I'm creeping up on age 30, I should probably start being proactive about my skincare in terms of 'firming' products. Anti-aging principles aside, I absolutely love this cream—it's super moisturizing without being too heavy and makes my skin feel great. And it lasts a long time!

Burt's Bees Renewal Refining Cleanser / $4.50 at Target
Are you sensing a theme here? I've been gradually switching all my skincare products over to cruelty free options, and I can't remember what made me try this one, but I just bought a second bottle of it because I love it so much (also, talk about bang for your buck).

Pixi Glow Tonic / $15 at Target
I'm pretty sure I've talked about the Pixi Glow Tonic before since I just bought my fourth (!) bottle, but this stuff is amazing. I use it in the evening before the night cream and it feels so refreshing—and it's really evened out my complexion. Bonus points for pretty packaging.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara (Travel Size) / $11 at Urban Decay
I've taken to buying only travel size mascaras because a) I'm certainly not going to go through a whole regular size tube in the recommended three month usage period, and b) much cheaper way to try new mascaras! I sadly just had to retire this one but I really loved it, and will definitely be purchasing it again (just bought a new ELF one to try, so depending on how that works out!). Mascara is one of those things I'm not super picky about, so the fact that I used this one on a daily basis (for honestly probably longer than I should have) says a lot. 

What are your beauty empties this month?
