Empties: April 2014

This month I actually didn’t finish that many products, so this list will look a bit short, but you know, even one empty bottle is already a huge achievement for beauty enthusiasts like us, right? Without further ado, here are my [sparse] April empties!

Limited Edition Biore Pore Pack Apple – I really didn’t care that it’s a LE item, I just needed to add something cheap to my cart to get free shipping. Glad I did! In the past I always used regular Biore nose strips, and liked them a lot. These were just as effective, but instead of being fragrance-free, they’re scented with a faint apple fragrance. I would definitely consider purchasing more.

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser – I had this cleanser for two years, and I used it a lot at first, but I haven’t touched it for the past 7-8 months. I also think it smells kind of funny now, so with about 1/3 left in the tube, I decided to finally toss it. It’s a great cleanser for dry/sensitive skin, by the way. At this time I don’t think I will be re-purchasing this one.

Lavanilla The Healthy Deodorant in Pure Vanilla – This travel-sized stick lasted me quite a while, and while I wouldn’t call it my staple, I still liked this deodorant a lot. It’s certainly on my list of top 5 healthy deodorants, and one of these days I will finally find the time to write a post about them 🙂 Given the opportunity, I would repurchase this if my first choice was no longer available.

Derma:B Daily Moisture Body Lotion – I received this body lotion in a Memebox, and just recently finally finished it. The formula was non-sticky, which made it a good choice to use during the day. I don’t think I’d repurchase this.

Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Body Lotion – I loved the way this body lotion felt on my skin, and I liked the ingredients, too; in fact, I already purchased a huge salon-sized pump bottle during Ahava’s 40% off sale event a few weeks ago.

Sesha Renu Exfoliating Gel – A very unique exfoliant: you apply some gel on dry skin and then gently massage it in circular motions. After about 20 seconds, the dead skin cells will just roll off your face, revealing clean and radiant complexion. I would definitely re-purchase this.

REN Hydra-Calm Global protection Day Cream – This cream is really good for irritated and sensitive skin. My hubs tried it a few times and it instantly calmed the redness, and made his skin feel very comfortable. I personally wouldn’t purchase this because I already have other favorites, but this is a really good product.

Nature Republic The First Number One Essence – If you heard of SK-II essence, this one works the same way. I did like sampling it, but I don’t think I used it long enough to see any difference to my skin.

Missha Time Revolution White Cure Super Radiance Lotion – Same as the essence above, I don’t think this sample was enough to determine whether I liked the product or not. It sure felt good on the skin, though, and didn’t give me a reaction.

Missha Misa Geumsul Milky Emulsion – A very pleasant lightweight emulsion/moisturizer, I can see it working well in hot and humid environment. This luxurious line from Missha features some unique ingredients, like pure gold, deer antlers, reishi mushrooms and spiceberry extract. I would consider purchasing it.

Skin Food Agave Cactus Toner – The toner was just okay, it had a very strong fragrance and really dried out my skin; I expected more from this cult Korean brand. Oh well, they can’t all be winners, am I right? I don’t think I’d purchase this one.
