It’s time to review my empty products from Winter 2019. By the time I’ve finished something, I know exactly how I feel about it, so I prefer reviews of empties to first impressions. These are the items I finished during the winter of 2019. For items I neither love nor hate, I am always willing to try them again, but I will not seek them out. This generally means I will only try them again if they are: free, on sale, or in a set (sets are a great way to get a deal as long as the value of the items you want to try exceed the cost you are paying). Empties from my December and February Foil Challenge are not here, because I wanted to avoid redundancy. The pH of products I’ve tested this season are below. Visit the pH article for info on how I test and a list of everything I’ve tested.
Want to know the pH of products? At the end of each season, I will conduct pH (Potential Hydrogen) tests on all empty products that still have liquid in them and compile a master list here. The pH of each product will also appear behind the review of each empty article the product appears in. Type the product name into the search bar to find the corresponding article for the review. It is possible I will occasionally test products that are not yet empty. Place your testing request in the comments. I will test it if it is a product I own, and it is already opened. Opening and/or purchasing a product just to test it is not something I will usually do, because the expiration countdown starts the moment the product opens.
A friend of mine, who read the review I wrote on the Sephora Bite Beauty Birthday Gift, contacted me. She said none of the birthday gifts really interested her so she decided to grab the one with the highest value for re-gifting purposes. Funny enough, this is a friend who is adamant that GLAMGLOW is not a good skincare brand. It surprised me that she selected the GLAMGLOW gift from the options. Then again, she owns a lot of Bite Beauty products and may have already owned the items from that gift. Some of you may know I never accept things from friends without sending things in return so we did a small trade. By getting this gift now, I can redeem for the shampoo and conditioner when my son’s next birthday comes in December. The value of that one is so much lower than the others that thought of redeeming it feels strange. Then again, it is the only one I still need to review.
