June 2022 Beauty, Skincare and Wellness Empties


It is a great beauty, skincare, and wellness product when you use it up to the last drop and then purchase it repeatedly. It's time to share this month's beauty, skincare, and wellness empties with you!

Brand: Glow Recipe

Product: Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer, 10ml

Price: $58 for 60ml

Where did I get it: Gift with purchase from Mecca

I would likely: Would consider purchasing and would certainly use it if gifted

Rate: 5/5

My thoughts: Give me a product that efficiently works with a pump, and you've already got a 1 or 2 rating without trying. This 100% oil-free cooling gel emulsion is formulated with 90% watermelon extract and blended with plumping hyaluronic acid. It provides instant hydration and absorbs instantly. It smells divine as well! 


Brand: Bumble and Bumble 

Product: Blonde Tone Enhancing Leave In, 60ml

Price: $24 for 60ml

Where did I get it: Purchased from Mecca in a set

I would likely: Would certainly use it if gifted

Rate: 2.5/5

My thoughts: I don't mind this product and the Bumble and Bumble Blonde range; it is just that I think it is a bit expensive compared to other products on the market. This is a leave-in toning spray that helps to neutralise brassiness for a more vibrant blonde colour. It is formulated to hydrate, smooth out the hair cuticles, and provide heat protection. I'm not rushing to repurchase because I have oodles of products in my cupboard that do all of this. 


Brand: REN Clean Skincare 

Product: Evercalm Redness Relief Serum

Price: $86 for 30ml

Where did I get it: Gift with purchase from Mecca

I would likely: Would not use it again

Rate: 2/5

My thoughts: This is a calming and soothing serum that is designed to help provide relief from discomfort in irritated and sensitive skin prone to redness. It can be used in the AM and PM. I didn't notice any difference when using this product. My rating reflects not what the product is designed for but what my experience was. I felt it was a waste of product and that I would have instead applied a different serum. As far as serums go, it is nice, and I'm sure it works wonders for some people, just not for me. 


Brand: Clinique

Product: Moisture Surge 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator, 5ml

Price: $68 for 50ml

Where did I get it: Gift with purchase from Mecca

I would likely: Would consider purchasing and would certainly use it if gifted

Rate: 4.5/5

My thoughts: Another oil-free gel-cream that delivers hydration. A little bit of this lightweight moisturising gel goes a long way. It has been formulated with a blend of aloe ferment and hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate. I can see why this product has a cult following; my skin felt and looked hydrated when using this product.  


Brand: This Works

Product: My Wrinkles Midnight Moisturiser, 2ml

Price: $107 for 48ml

Where did I get it: Gift with purchase from Mecca

I would likely: Would not use it again

Rate: 2/5

My thoughts: This product smells incredible but is too fragrant for a moisturiser. My skin did not respond well to this product as it inflamed my rosacea. The thick overnight moisturiser didn't absorb well and sat on my skin. My rating reflects not what the product is designed for but what my experience was. I have brought fragrance products from This Works and absolutely love them. I have a sachet of the My Wrinkles Extreme Moisturiser to try; this might be a different experience.
