I had taken a break during the past month or two, mainly in preparation of our trip to the US. Today I brought you another empties post for the months from May - June. Since we're almost constantly on-the-go, pics of the empties were taken at once whenever there are any!
Benefit Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer in 02 Medium - This one reminded me of the good ol' days! My dark circles used to be so easily covered with this thing (sigh). This had been used up ages ago but I recently found it at the bottom of my drawer.
The Body Shop White Musk Sumptuous Silk Shower Gel - LOVE this scent, it's my 3rd bottle.
Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Day Cream - I have no idea why this can be a day cream. It's greasy after initial application! I used it on my hands anyway - the grease seemed to subside a bit after 5 minutes? Anyways I have another tube to go, luckily it's just a deluxe sample. Oh, and the content left my hands dry overnight, gah!
5-layer cotton puffs - Usual staples. I can buy this stuff in bulk, I mean, 100 boxes, please?
Tatcha Aburatorigami Blotting Sheets - Came as part of a set. Not particularly impressed, nor it was bad.
Dr. Bronner's Pure Castille Soap in Almond - This has got to be my favourite scent out of the whole range, next to Rose scent. This stuff cleanses and lathers effectively without harsh chemicals.
Dr. Bronner's Organic Hand & Body Shikakai Soap in Lemongrass Lime - This formula is different from castille soap mentioned above. It has a thicker consistency and extremely concentrated so a pea-sized dollop will lather immensely. This bottle lasted me for 3-4 months? And I'm a frequent hand-washer (bordering excessive).
Apivita Propoline Shampoo for men - OK I didn't use this one but ya know.
John Masters Organics Zinc & Sage shampoo with Conditioner - So-so? I was too jet-lagged to remember how it performed on my hair, lol.
Kiehl's Vanilla & Cedarwood Skin Softening Body Lotion - Adorable, warm and welcoming scent. I tried their shower gel of the same scent and loved it so much.
CRYSTAL Body Deodorant Spray - This stopped working for me all of a sudden when it's on its last legs? Anyways I've been loyal to this spray for YEARS. Like more than 10 years? I've already got a backup in my bathroom in case everything runs out / my new 'natural' deodorant didn't work.
Chanel Eye Makeup Remover - Must-have for travel trips!
Lavera Q10 Hydrating Cream - Used as body lotion, absorbs nicely.
Korres Guava little shower gel - Scent was delightful but I think it's time to stop using Korres once the remaining stock finishes.
Rahua Shampoo & Conditioner - Have always viewed the Rahua range with a skeptic eye but WOAH. Their stuff works wonders to my frizzy hair (it's either the hard water in North America or the poor beddings from hotels - I've always had hair troubles whenever I'm traveling - my hair is basically fine at home). This duo made my hair so baby soft, that I already ordered the full size Conditioner (OUCH look at the price tag)! But a little goes a long way.
NARS Eye Makeup Remover - Frankly speaking I can't really testify this product since there's only 5-7ml...
DHC Eye Mask - Great staple for road trips.
John Masters Organics Linden Blossom Face Creme Cleanser - So-so, it's not working wonders.
Shu Uemura Face Architect Foundation - Nowadays Shu foundations always leave a 'mask' feeling on my skin. Just. No. More. Plus they're not easy to remove thoroughly.
Balance Me Rose Otto Body Wash - The bottle is extremely hard to squeeze/dispense, the wash itself is mediocre. Cleansing ability is a little bit below mediocre I'd say.
Rahua Conditioner - LOVEEEE what it did to my hair. All. Tamed.
MAC Pearl Glide liner in Black Line - Nice black with golden shimmer flecks in it. It'll be missed.
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer - Fortunate to obtain a sample from an online order. I think it broke my forehead out when I tried to use it between my brows along my nose bridge...when used as an eyeshadow base, it creased and left a white line on my crease.......................
Caudalie Divine Oil - I'm still on the fence whether I need to buy this in a bigger size or not. Scent-wise is of course amazing.
Apivita Propoline shampoo for men - Not mine.
Rahua Conditioner - Same as mentioned
Mitchell & Peach English Greens Body Wash - Smells like lavender and fresh cut grass. English countryside? The scent is to die for.
L'Occitane Revitalizing Fresh Shampoo and Conditioner - Scent was OK but not sure what it did to my hair.
Trilogy Cream Cleanser - A bit runny but gentle enough.
Kiehl's Amino Acid Shampoo - Not sure what it did to my hair.
Bausch & Lomb Re-nu Contact Lens solution.
Bioderma Sensibio Micellar water - This size is great for travel I wish they'd sell this more, instead of coming as part of a set.
Rahua Shampoo - This is a gem but I'd rather invest in the conditioner.
John Masters Organics Linden Blossom Face Creme Cleanser - As reviewed above.
TALIKA Lipocils Expert Eyelash Conditioning Gel - This stuff made my lashes grow so much longer and more visible (pigmented aka more obvious). I plan to change a new one every 6 months. Formal review HERE. However I just bought my replacement lately and the price has hiked up so ridiculously - I'll not be buying this nonsense after finishing my new tube!
More John Masters Organics Linden Blossom Face Creme Cleanser.
DHC Eye Mask.
John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Wash - Smells like a cheese cake but I grew tired of the scent after first use.
Paul & Joe Light Cleansing Milk N - OK as a double-cleanse makeup remover, nothing wild about it.
SANA Hadanomy Collagen Face Mask - This thing has been discontinued in HK and it was so moisturizing and refreshing!
Aesop Fabulous Face Cleanser - Smells like citrus and geranium! Unfortunately too tiny to notice any effect.
Suki Moisture-rich Cleansing Lotion - This one smells like the SUGAS squared chewable candies in LEMON!! Lovely texture.
Kimberly Sayer Gentle Face Cleanser - Love the texture, great for secondary makeup removal step.
Kimberly Sayer Light Cleansing Lotion - This one is slightly runnier than the two on the left, but great nevertheless.
Kiehl's Calendula Toner - Used to be favourite.
Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover - Not the greatest but is a cult product for many. It was just OK to me.
1028 ph7.5 Hydrating Lip & Eye Makeup Remover - Cheapie but goodie!
Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado (TOSSED) - This has to go to the bin because the texture has become funky. It's no longer a thick cream but like watery gel. So many eye creams, so little time . #firstworldproblems
Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer in 030 Classic Beige (TOSSED) - This one is past its prime. Shade was a rather remote match but still workable. It's just been here for too long, I think 4-5 years?
Sara Happ The Lip Slip One Luxe Gloss (TOSSED) - Cult favourite product in a tube form. Love the way it hydrates my lips in sub-zero weather, but I always ended up having some of it in my mouth (can taste it), hmm. This one has been standing for so long I think it's past its prime. Do try its original form in a pot and the tube is no different = equally amazing.
That's all for today!!
