[2016] November - December EMPTIES

6:56:00 PM

Here we go again with an Empties post !
Empties post is where I listed all of my finished products so that I know which ones worked for me and which ones did not. Hopefully you would also get an overall glimpse of the products from my quick review on each items. If you have similar skin type like mine (oily combi face + normal body skin) then these mini reviews might be useful to you.

So here it is ...
My last Empties post of 2016, covering the month of November through December :


Shu Uemura White Efficient Clear Brightening Cleansing Oil
I've been using this particular brand for many months and this was my second bottle. I love using it because this was one of the best cleansing oil I've tried so far regarding the strength of the formula. It's able to cleanse off all of my makeup including my foundation and waterproof mascara as well as heavy duty matte lipstick that tends to stay on your lips all day. Would love to repurchase this but it's a little bit expensive.

> Replacement : currently using The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil & The Skin Cleansing Oil

Nip+Fab Glycolic Acids Daily Cleansing Pads
This is basically a skincare + cleansing pads that contains glycolic acids to exfoliate your skin as it cleanse it. I have started to introduce some acids treatment on my skincare routine lately and this was one of the first acids I've tried. It was good as long as I don't add an AHA toner afterwards because then my skin would be aggravated. So I only use these pads at night when I'm not using my AHA toner.
> Recommended. I would repurchase but I would also like to try another brand such as the one from First Aid Beauty
> Replacement : Don't have any replacement for this Glycolic acids yet
> Read the Nip+Fab Glycolic Acids Daily Cleansing Pads here 

Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream
If you've been following my EMPTIES post you might noticed that I have finished lots of Garnier products lately. That's because I was sent some products from Garnier rep and I found them quite good for a supermarket brand so that's why I have no problem using them and I still have a couple of these Garnier products on my stock. This was my moisturizer for traveling or stay-over, and I think I've reviewed this one before, you can click the link below to read the complete review.
> Recommended for drugstore whitening cream
> Replacement : still using up my other Garnier whitening cream for my travel moisturizer

Orlane Extreme Line-Reducing Lip Care
I already put a sample size of this product on one of my previous Empties post and I have written a mini review about it too. I got a couple of these from the beauty box subscriptions a while ago. Overall it's not my favorite lip care because the texture is a bit thick and I also don't like how it feels on my lips.
> Will Not Repurchase
> Replacement : Still trying to use up my Eos Strawberry Lip Shere Balm

NYX The Blue "Smile Brightener"  Lipgloss
OMG this is soooo freaking old ! From time to time I always accidentally stumbled to find an old product here and there that I no longer used, and this one is definitely from the past, LOL. I decided to just throw this away because it's been so old and I think NYX doesn't make these anymore (so that's how old it is, Lol).
> Will Not Repurchase
> Replacement : currently using Maybelline Baby Lips in berry crush for my daily lipbalm

B O D Y C A R E 

GAP Night Fall Shower Gel
I loved how this bottle look on my bathroom sill when it was still full. It just looks elegant and for many months I just left it standing there without using it because it just look so good with my bathroom decor :) But then I decided to open it up because I don't want it to be expired before I had the chance to use it. The scent is quite on the heavy side so I usually use this for my night shower because it would be too "heavy" for morning use. It's elegant, sensual, yet warm and inviting at the same time.
> Replacement : currently using The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Shower Gel & Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath / Shower Gel in my bathroom right now

Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods Fragrance Mist
One of my favorite body spray this BBW fragrance mist is my travel body spray because of it's medium size bottle. I love the scent of this one. It's kinda sweet but musky at the same time. I'd say it smells like a "cool minty flower on branches of trees" :) 
> Will def Repurchase
> Replacement : right now I'm using BBW Coconut Lime Breeze Fragrance Mist to replace this as my travel body mist

The Body Shop Mango Shower Gel
I had a couple of these mini TBS shower gels that I used for my traveling and stay-over, and this is one of the last bottles that I have on stock. I really like the mango scent from TBS because it smells like a fresh mango fruit! Especially lovely for the hot weather like Jakarta :)
> Will Repurchase
> Replacement : right now still trying to use up my Cottage Caramel mini shower gel as my travel shower gel

Lancome La Vie est Belle Shower Gel
Also one of my favorite scent, this La Vie est Belle perfumed shower gel from Lancome came with a matching body lotion. I've used up the shower gel but still has a little bit of the body lotion left. The scent is one of those "expensive" type of scents ;) It's sweet, elegant, sexy, feminine, and "exclusive" at the same time. 'Nuff said.
> Recommended & will repurchase it in eau de perfume edition because I love collecting perfumes too ;)


No:Hj Aqua Soothing Pack Sheet Mask
I have written about this Korean brand sheet mask before (read the review on the link below), and I've also used up a couple of these on my last empties post. I got a pack of them so currently I still have just a few of these sheet masks left so you will probably see this mask again on future empties post ;)

Japanese Hyaluronic + Lithospermum Sheet Mask
I got this mask from Japan and it has no english name on it so I'm not sure what the brand is. But this mask is really nice and I love using it. I have made a review about this mask a few posts back, you can read about it via the link below.
> Recommended

The Face Shop Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask 
I haven't made a proper review on this one (but I plan to, I promise!) despite my dislike to this particular mask. It has lots of essence so it's gonna drip while you're wearing it so I don't suggest you walk around when you're using this mask on your face. It does keep my skin hydrated and moisturized but I just don't like how it drips so much and I also don't really fond of the strong perfume scent.
> Will Not Repurchase
> Review : Soon!


Bath & Body Works Cranberry Tangerine Hand Soap
I have mentioned before in this blog about my love of luxury hand soaps. I love using nice hand soaps because I washed my hands literally 8-10 times a day, so I need a handsoap that would make me happy every time I wash my hands :) This Cranberry Tangerine scent from the BBW Kitchen hand soap collection is one of those really nice fresh and uplifting fruity scent that would go perfect in the kitchen to mask that smell of food once you're done cooking and washing dishes.
> Recommended & Will Repurchase
> Replacement : right now I'm using BBW Peach Bellini Foaming Hand Soap as replacement in the kitchen sink

Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
This was my hand soap for the bathroom sink. I finished both the kitchen sink and bathroom sink hand soaps at the same time. This is the exact same scent as the travel size body spray I mentioned above. The Twilight Woods is obviously one of my favorite BBW scent considering I have two products with the exact same scent without even realizing it (^o^).
> Recommended & Will Repurchase
> Replacement : right now I'm using BBW Winter Candy Apple Deep Cleansing Hand Soap for my bathroom sink

Colonial Candle in Winter Woods
Okay, this wasn't supposed to be in this post. I don't know how this candle got in my current empties bin because this was already on my last empties post. Maybe it got left inside the bin accidentally when I threw the rest of previous empties lot to the garbage, so that might be the reason why I end up with this empty candle once again in my current empties bin. But you can read about it on my previous empties post here.

Juicy Couture Perfumed Body Lotion (travel size) 
Just like the matching Lancome La Vie est Belle Perfumed Shower Gel & Body Lotion set above, this Juicy Couture one also came with it's matching travel size mini perfume bottle which I still have in my vanity because I refuse to finish it up because the tiny bottle just looks so cute (^o^). What I love about perfumed body lotion is they usually smells 2-3 times stronger than a regular body lotion, and they have the same scent as their perfume version so when you wear them together it would just escalate the scent-throw even more. Perfumes alone usually wouldn't last long on me so sometimes I have to amp up by adding their body lotion version :)
> Will Repurchase this in the future as I really like the scent of both the body lotion & perfume

So that's it guys...
My last empties post for November - December 2016, in which I managed to finished 8 full size products + 4 travel size products + 3 sheet masks = a total of 15 products ! Not bad for two months, eh?
