1st P10SC - Conclusion

I didn't do too bad!!  Congratulations to me!! I know I cheated a little by buying a big lot of skin care (especially face masks) before I started this project.  However, I did quite well in terms of limiting myself to shop crazily at bargains and etc!  I think I only pick up 1 sheet mask, 1 mini-size sunscreen, 1 big-size sunscreen (for face and body, guys!) ......

  Some reviews~
Superdrug Naturalhigh Gentle Exfoliating Face Scrub + Boots Botanics Organic Face Rosewater Toner
Both are UK drugstore brands.  The scrub I got in local Watson's (a pharmacy) and the rosewater toner I got in UK (gosh it was back in 2009).  The scrub i don't like, the toner I do.

The face scrub is non-foaming, creamy base, with med to large grains for exfoliation.  It has a sick sweet scent which is not too natural IMO.  (I can see some would love this smell though)  The density of the grains/particles is a bit strange, not dense enough in my taste to scrub, but enough amount and coarse-ness to make you feel uncomfortable..

The rosewater toner, on the other hand, is very much a winner.  Smell lovely, moisturizing without being sticky or leave behind any film-feeling.  Feels organic (?) and tones nicely.  Works well in both spraying method or wiping.  Would consider repurchasing for the sake of its scent, but right now I'd say my local Choi-fung rosewater does well enough too :P
Marjorie Bertagne GG hEGF Revitalizing Nutrient Masque
Does nothing on my skin.  The good is, it washes off easily and leaves skin quite soft.  My face doesn't seem to be more nourished or healthy after this mask :P  This won't go to my re-purchase list~ hehe

a very good moisturiser! for HK climate I'd say it's a good winter face cream ;)

a bit too perfumed, but like this also! hehe

note: the lipbalm on the right is still not yet finished! ><

gardeners hand therapy: good and love it! still hv many tubes lying around and also a big bottle standing in my bedroom

kiehl's: nice but over-priced.  full stop.

dr.g: creamy and gives a feeling that it is protective (does it make sense?) not greasy and not too light.  love!

joseristine: not much feelings on this, but doesnt cause bad reaction to my skin, will use up other samples to decide :P

note: clinique not yet finished

chanel: no much likes or dislikes on this product.  i'd prefer getting the hydramax mositure serum thing again instead of this one.  thanks boyfriend for getting me this though :P

neutrogena: i can conclude that this stuff irritates my eyes. 

crabtree: nice stuff.  not the best scent though :P i have other favourites

l'oreal: i didn't apply this regular enough to see the results.  could give this another try in the future, no?

Overall Grade:  B+


I guess I can easily start with my round 2, however, I will take a brief break, to see which category I may need some backups or new members.

For the next round, I think I'd probably
- set samples/travel sizes as 1/3 of a full size becoz they are too easy to finish up :P
- separate body and face products maybe?

That's it for this round! HEHE
