Quite frankly, with my return to blogging, I don't know where to begin or what to post - I feel so unorganised. To keep things rolling I will start by doing another empties post; nothing much this month as I haven't been using many products but something is better than nothing :)
To start off with this month's list, we have...
Trilogy: Active Enzyme Cleansing Cream
I love the light and creamy texture of this cleanser and furthermore it did not irritate my skin at all. On the packaging is says "age proof" but I can't comment whether it actually is or not. I did not take note of whether my complexion was smoother and brighter after using this though.
Pure Fiji: Hydrating Body Lotion (Coconut)
Wasn't partcularly fond of the coconut scent although I did like how fast absorbing this was. On top of that there was no greasy feeling afterwards, which is always a bonus for me, and my skin felt moisturised enough.
Swisse: Body Wash
For some odd reason the scent reminds me of lemonade just a tiny bit. This body wash lathers well and it left my skin feeling moisturised and slippery smooth after every shower.
My Beauty Diary (我的美麗日記): Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser
MBD is a Taiwanese skincare brand famous for their cute and affordable face masks. This product took me forever to finish because I was always using it on and off... To start off, this cleanser contains tiny, tiny beads to help exfoliate (although I didn't feel anything...) and the texture is very foamy. It felt gentle on the skin and didn't dehydrate it at all. Two things that put me off the most were: (1) the scent - it smelt very artificial and nothing like strawberries; (2) the packaging - although a spatula was provided, a big no no!
Goldwell: Dual Senses Rich Repair Shampoo & Conditioner
Royal Moroccan: Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner (Platinum Series)
I don't quite remember how my hair felt for each product though I did like using both of these. Nothing amazing I suppose but I was expecting more from the Royal Moroccan ones as it is made for dry and coloured hair. Of the two I remember I preferred Goldwell but I don't remember why! Oops.
Etude House: Gingko Lip Area Patch
In reality, when you apply this, it looks like you have a small beard going on. There was no noticeable scent nor was it dripped in essence although it did make my skin feel cooler or some sort of tingly sensation. It adhered really well although there was no noticeable brightening effect.
Tony Moly: Intense Care Snail Eye Mask
The area around my eyes were not exactly 'dry' to begin with so I don't think using this at the time was very effective. However it did actually feel relaxing to use and more hydrating, though the biggest problem for me was it did not adhere well and kept sliding off.
La Fresh: Waterproof Makeup Remover
The scent was somewhat herbal and reminded me of the Aveda Invati Shampoo & Conditioner. I didn't notice any huge difference between this and normal makeup removers, therefore finding it quite average. However the size of this wipe, which is made for eyes and lips, was huge.
Montagne Jeunesse: Passion Peel Off (Pomegranate & Passion Flower)
First of all the smell of this mask was a major turnoff for me which I don't know how to describe. And second of all, it was messy to use and a pain to remove if your hair gets caught. The only novelty of this is the mask dries up and you can peel it off when it's dry instead of rinsing it off.
Wotnot: Facial Wipes (not pictured)
My favourite facial wipes! I've mentioned about these face wipes several times and they are the best. A bit expensive so I want to look for some other alternatives that are just as good. Any recommendations?
Lush: Snow Globe Soap (not pictured)
My favourite limited edition soap bar that is only available during Christmas (I think)! The citrusy scent smells so divine and pleasant to the nose. It's a shame it's not always available and I find that Lush soap bars dissolve faster than normal soap bars meaning more money spent :(
I guess I won't be repurchasing any or most of the products from last month's empties. Once again I hope to finish more products next month and now to decide what I should post about next time :)
Have you tried any of these products?
Have a beautiful weekend everyone!
