2019MarApril_1My March & April Empties. April is not quite over yet, but I doubt I’ll have a new empty by the 30th.

  • Likes (likes enough to use it again someday)
  • Meh (meh)
  • Underline (already repurchased)

2019MarApril_2Here are my Likes & Loves:

  • Philosophy Fresh Cream
  • Nature Republic Hair Liner in Brown
  • Bioderma SensiBio Micellar Water 
  • Living Proof Perfect Hair Day
  • OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo 
  • Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis
  • Skinfood Cheek and Lip Trio – No3 Cherry Tomato
  • Thayers Witch Hazel Toner
  • LUSH Snow Fairy Shower Gel
  • Opti Free Replenish 

Loved everything on this list. Especially the Royal Honey Propolis which softens & moisturizes like nobody’s business, but sadly, Skinfood isn’t doing so well. Offline stores have been closing and stocks ran low for a while.

They’re saying Skinfood will continue selling their products online, but unsure if this is true. Hope so.

2018 March Empties

  • Underline (already repurchased)

2018MARempties_3March FS/DS Loves!

  • ShiruKotto (takes some getting used to, but great facial cotton. It doesn’t absorb a lot of product, meaning everything goes to your face, not your cotton! This was a gift from a friend in Japan.)
  • Sephora Green Tea Gel Cleanser (A great second cleanser. I typically used this after the body shop cleanser. I think they’re phasing it out though? 😦 )
  • Botanics Shine Away Clay Mask (Amazing fast-working clay mask. A bit watery.)
  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed  (Keeps away the shine.)
  • Christophe Robin Sea Salt Scrub (tad pricey, but lovely scent + great scalp scrub. I don’t use this as a shampoo, but more of a scalp treatment.)
  • Hurraw! Lip Balm in Coffee (My favorite lip balm. I’ve been using this for years. Should’ve posted a review a million years ago.)
  • L’oreal HydraFresh Moisturizer (Great moisturizer but so hard to find.)
  • Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter (Caroline Hirons hooked me onto this. My mom loves it, too)
  • Dove Body Polish in Macademia & Rice Milk (The most intoxicating scent and leaves my skin baby-soft. Dries easily though.)
  • Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Light Mauve (One of my favorite blushes…but god, these Fit Me blushes have such flimsy packaging. It always breaks a month in.)

2018MARempties_2March Likes! and Mehs.

  • Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water (Lovely delicate scent. Doesn’t clean as well as my Bioderma though.)
  • Tony Moly Easy Touch Eyeliner in Brown (Nice color but the brush tip was too hard. Wasn’t like the one I used before. )
  • Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake ( 😦 .. The scent wasn’t rich enough. I could barely smell it. Formula is as always, decent)
  • Nexxus Conditioner (My fourth bottle methinks)
  • Amorepacific Enzyme Peel (I noticed nothing … the Tatcha or NUDE powder is more to my liking. Love their face spray though.)
  • Bath & Body Works Candy Apple (Love the initial scent. Dries down too sweet, too cloying. Decent moisturizer, non-tacky.)

 

Hope to finish off more before I leave for Korea in May.
