DECEMBER - JANUARY Empties5:47:00 PM
I found out that Empties posts are useful for me personally, because I can take notes on which products are working for me and which ones are blah. Especially when you tried a looot of products like me (and like all the beauty bloggers out there who received many products to try out), then sometimes it's hard to remember which one works and which one doesn't. So that's why I found these Empties posts useful for me as a personal reminder (^_^)
Anyway, since I've been busy lately so here is a collective empty products that I have finished during December last year and January this year. It's a lot of products but I'm glad that I can finished some of my opened stash these past two months. I still got many open products in my stash and I am trying very hard to finish them all off (;p)
I'm proud of myself because I finished lots of real size products this time. I also finished a couple of sample size products because I used them during the weekends when I stayed over at my in laws every week.
I also finished lots of older products so that makes me happy because those products been sitting on my vanity for far too long, LOL. I hate wasting and throwing away products so I usually would just try to finish them off.
L'Oreal Smooth Intense Anti-Frizz Shampoo
I've been trying lots of different shampoos and this one almost made the cut. I like the formula and the scent, but my hair seems to turn greasy easily when using this shampoo (*ThumbsDown*).
NOTE: Recommended, but not for my hair type. Right now I'm using Watsons Honey Treatment Shampoo.
Tresemme Scalp Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
This one actually made the cut. It makes my hair feels good and I also like the scent.
NOTE: I would consider repurchasing but right now I'm using Watsons Honey Treatment Shampoo.
Taman Sari Royal Heritage Cocoa Body Scrub
A favorite local brand, I really like the Cocoa series. The texture is a lotion-type scrub with tiny particles to buff the skin. I like the scent and the practical way of using it. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: To replace this I'm using Ovale Balinese Milk Scrub
SkinLife Medicated Acne Care Toner
I was using this along with the face wash and I like the result on my skin. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: To replace this I'm still using The Skin Food Tea Tree Toner.
Marks & Spencer China Blue Moisture Rich Hand Wash
One of my favorite hand wash from Marks & Spencer because I love the lovely soft scent and the gorgeous bottle!
NOTE: To replace this I'm now using Marks & Spencer Lilly of The Valley Moisture Rich Hand Wash.
Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water
Hands down, this is my most favorite micellar water to clean my face and makeup. It's really practical and it gets rid the heavy layers of makeup. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: Right now I'm trying out Bioderma Sebium to replace this one.
SkinLife Medicated Acne Care Face Wash
This is a foaming face wash that I'm using together with the toner above. The bottle is huge and a little goes a long way, so it saves you money on the long run. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: As replacement, my current face wash is the Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem face Wash.
Nivea Night Whitening Body Serum
My favorite body lotion to use at night. The formula absorbs really well and the scent is oh-so-calming. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: To replace this I'm now trying to empty my Utama Spice Lavender Body Lotion.
Dove Whitening Original Deo-Stick
This is a spray deodorant and nothing special from this. The alcohol is quite strong so I didn't fancy it.
NOTE: As replacement, I'm using the roll-on version of this.
Rexona Women Whitening Deodorant
This is a roll-on stick type which is my favorite type of deodorant because it doesn't give me a wet feeling like the usual roll-on type. One of my fave!
NOTE: As mentioned above, right now I'm using Dove Whitening Original Roll-On.
Candle-Lite Juicy Black Cherries
One of my favorite candle, I finally finish this off (and blew the container too because I wasn't careful handling it ;p). [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: Will definitely repurchase this one.
Oscar Blandi Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray
A definite favorite dry shampoo of mine. This acts as dry shampoo and heat protectant spray as well. [REVIEWED HERE]
Made From Earth Peppermint Parsley Soap Bar
I love natural soaps and this one is definitely one of my favorite. It's natural, and organic, and the scent is very lovely. Perfect to wind down after a hard day. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: As replacement, right now I'm using Etude House Sweet Appleade Body Wash in my bathroom.
Issey Miyake Pleats Please Perfume (vial)
I like this one because it smells really nice, sweet, and girly ^_^
NOTE: I usually bring vial size perfume for traveling-use, right now I'm using Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater perfume vial in my traveling bag.
Burts Bees Lip Balm
This is the original one with vitamin E and peppermint. It has a slightly tingly taste because of the peppermint and the formula is really nice too. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: To replace this, I'm still using my EOS Pomegranate Lip Balm Sphere.
Olay Moisturizing Lotion (travel size)
This is what I used for my travel moisturizer. I finally finished it off. Although nothing really stands out from this one but I still enjoy using it as daily moisturizer.
NOTE: As replacement, I'm currently using Olay Natural white Fairness Cream.
Cath Kidston Honeysuckle Body Lotion
I finally finished this one and didn't really like it. Actually I don't really like Cath Kidston body lotion formula :( [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: To replace this I'm now just using a hand cream which is the Loccitane Rose 4 Reines Hand Cream.
Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick in Natural
I actually really enjoyed using this because it's very practical for every day use. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: I still have one of this in my stash but right now I'm trying to finish my Lollipops Absinthe BB Cream first.
Skin79 Diamond Prestige BB Cream
This is what I used in my traveling bag. It doesn't really wow me but I guess it'll do fine for days that doesn't require fine makeup.
NOTE: To replace this I'm now using Skin79 Super Whitening BB Cream in my traveling bag.
Rudy Hadisuwarno Hair Intense Repair Serum
This is a hair serum from a local well-known hairdresser. I actually like it very much because it makes my hair feels and smells good. [REVIEWED HERE]
NOTE: Recommended. I still have a bunch of these in my stash :)
Shikada Facial Cleansing Wipes
This used to be my regular cleansing wipes before I found my favorite V10 wipes. This is so cheap and I have included it in my empties post many times before.
V10 Makeup Remover Wipes
Ever since I tried these wipes I never go back to Shikada ones again. This is much better than the Shikada ones but now I don't really use face wipes anymore.
NOTE: Still have a few in my stash but I don't buy cleansing wipes anymore.
Carrefour Hello Kitty Floral Wet Wipes
This is just a regular multi-use wipes that I bring in my bag everyday. Nothing special except for the kawaii Hello Kitty features (^_^)
So that's it for my latest Empties.
This time I managed to bin 18 full size products and 5 travel size products = a total of 23 products! Not bad... but I still have a long way to go because there are still many products in my stash right now (^_^).
