Things We Finish: AKA A Review of Our Empties
13 Nov
When you’re employed in attractiveness, a large section of the task is making an attempt out new merchandise, regardless of if you have already got your face moisturizer or your purple lipstick. Which is not to mention you’ll be able to’t have a couple of standbys, however the title of the sport is experimentation: you might be continuously shifting from one product to the following, to look what works and thus what is vital to inform the arena (i.e., you) about. It’s a unprecedented revel in, then, to seek out your self coaxing out the closing drops from a moisturizer tube, or fumbling with a tiny stub of eyeliner. But after we do end one thing, it method we will have to truly love that product. Hence this infrequently ordinary characteristic: Things We Finish, wherein we communicate in regards to the merchandise that we spoiled attractiveness junkies squeeze, scrape, or shake ’til there’s not anything left. Here are the gorgeous empties we had laying round this month:

Used through Bela Yousif, Communications Manager
“My wallet will never forgive me for drinking the La Mer Kool Aid (Miracle Broth) but this stuff feels like whipped clouds on my face. It really is so soft. Not sure if layering moisturizers like serum is a no-no but don’t be surprised if you find me adding this on top of Crème de la Mer and maybe under Priming Moisturizer.”

Used through Alena Jaffe, Senior Packaging & Print Designer
“This is my all time favorite sunscreen because I’m acne prone and on Tretinoin, so I need a physical sunscreen to protect myself during the day. This one is tinted, so doesn’t leave a white cast and gives me a good foundation for my makeup. I’ve gone through at least six bottles.”

Used through Melissa Sova, Performance Marketing Manager
“My hair is incredibly straight and flat. It doesn’t hold a curl, and it’s weighed down by ‘beachy’ texturizing sprays and drugstore mousse. This is the only product that’s ever given me fluffy hair day after day (even when applied to wet hair at night and slept on). The only downside is that I refuse to leave it behind when I travel, so I have to check a bag.”

Used through Kathryn Ordower, Executive Director of Legal Affairs
“This is the only product that’s ever had me thinking seriously about opting into a subscription service. I reliably buy it every three months and use it almost every day. It evens out my sometimes-blotchy skin very while still being extremely lightweight and wearable. Plus it’s SPF 30 so I feel like a responsible grownup when I use it.”

Used through Gaby Azorsky, gTEAM Editor
“I spray this on my hair post-shower, or in the morning if my hair is a mess from the night before. It helps me achieve the look I’m usually going for: tousled artist who went to the beach two days ago but still has that salty volume in her hair.”

Used through Peyton Johnson, Customer Insights Associate Manager
“I like using this at night after I’ve done something really exfoliating, like the Drunk Elephant Babyfacial or a few nights of Differin. That shakes out to about twice a week. My skin just drinks it in and looks plump the next morning. When I ran out of the 1oz, I restocked with the 1.7oz during a VIB sale—it’s the first nice skincare product I’ve ever restocked! Momentous!”

Used through Alena Jaffe
“This moisturizer is so light and soaks into my skin effortlessly and quickly without leaving any residue. It is also great for calming down my breakouts. And the price is right!”

Used through Sam Law, Senior UX Researcher
“I’ve only been using this for a few weeks, but it has quickly become my favorite body scrub. I’ve slowly started using it everywhere, but I cannot say enough how much it has improved the smoothness of the skin on my buns. Especially as someone who is prone to body blemishes from working out (not to mention the scars of blemishes past). And it doesn’t feel too harsh either. Just wish it came in a bigger jar.”

Used through Gaby Azorsky
“Everyone know: This balm adjusts to the pH balance of your lips, so it was my go-to for summer if I needed some tint. I liked how it gently defined my lips while making them look a bit plump. And I hear it’s one of the most clicked products on ITG, so I must be doing something right.”

Used through Alena Jaffe
“When I finally entered my mid-20s and noticed that I didn’t feel as great as I once did I turned to Ritual for my daily vitamin. I love that I don’t have to take a bunch of different pills to get all the vitamins that I need, and that they get delivered to my doorstep every month. Plus, it has ingredients like vitamin K2 and vitamin E which promote healthy skin (this is about beauty after all), and other awesome ingredients that make me feel energized and healthier.”

Used through Kate Park, Frontend Engineer
“On a whim, with 10 minutes to spare before boarding started, I purchased this essence (the mask I originally wanted was sold out) on my way back from Korea. My skin felt and looked better, but I’m not 100% convinced—especially to remove another $135 from my Yeezy budget—that my dark spots lightened. I might need to continuously use this for a year before I determine whether it’s worth the high price point. That being said, there is a 99% chance that I will pick up another bottle on my next flight back from Korea.”

Used through Kara Freewind, Copy Manager
“Less of a lipstick and more of a balm, this helps me look more alive without any real work. I slap it on most mornings while I’m waiting for the subway. It’s a really subtle natural red, like you’re a sexy cherub or coming in from the cold. A red lip that’s not a RED LIP.”

Used through Gaby Azorsky
“This tube smells refreshing with the peppermint, and the jelly viscosity feels like it’s working. I’m not sure if it actually leaves me softer and more clean, but I don’t really care. Using it is joy enough for me.”
