November Empties

I have been strong killing products (and buying new ones) as illustrated by the finales of 2 of my projects: Body and Hair, as well as Make Up.  I have been sick for 2 weekends and on holiday for 1 - hence I didn't stay too close to a routine - if I ever had one :P

Anyway - Skin Care
  • Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado -Tao sent me this sample to try out.  I like it a lot in fact!  This eye cream is one of the famous basic ones that gives good moisture and nourishment with good ingredients and stuff.  A little bit of this adds just the enough emollience for the current weather.  (Note: about 13-18 degrees, dry and windy)  After clearing my skin care stash a bit I may consider repurchasing this!  Rating: 4/5
  • Naruko Rose + Snow Fungus Aqua Cubic Moisturizer - Full Lengthy Review HERE.
  • Naruko Narcissus Total Defense Fundamental Serum - Review HERE.
  • My Beauty Diary Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser - I use this roughly twice a week with my Clarisonic Mia.  Sometimes I use this on its own too.  It has tiny red granules inside that melt when the cleanser foams up with water.  Gives good gentle cleansing and exfoliation.  Smells delicious but not over-powering.  Not drying but not moisturising enough for my skin.  This is the small size that came with a trial set - I'm happy I got a full size back up for the next summer.  (Note: you can see more detail in the pic that follows) Rating: 3/5
  • Clinique take the day off make up remover - Again, this is a small trial/sample/travel size.  My evening cleansing routine - when I wore make up - usually starts with a pre-cleanse mascara remover (Fasio or Kiss Me), a make up remover soak in cotton pad for eyes, cleansing oil OR cream OR clarisonic for face make up, then another cleanser or exfoliator in the shower.  This Clinique one is good, oily enough to take off waterproof stuff, and gentle.  No scent and no colour - the bottle is purple, not the product.  I like this much.  @Joselin - this is comparable to Lancome Bi-facil, without the blue colour, scent and the price difference.  As far as I can remember, the Lancome was a bit more emollient too.  ;)  Rating: 4/5

Body and Hair

  • Beauty Mate Rose Nano Body Lotion - A year or two ago, beauty mate came up with the holiday set with 17 sheet masks and 1 body lotion at a very discounted price.  I got a good few sets of them hence I have a good few bottles of this lotion.  The smell is beautiful.  As it came as almost a free gift (with the sheet masks), I apply this in an extremely generous manner.  It does moisturise and leaves skin soft + smelling beautiful.  Enjoyed using up the last bottle of it - but as I have used up so many bottles of this same scent, I don't think I need anymore of this in my life! XD (unless they do similar sets again...) Rating: 3/5
  • The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner - Talked about this HERE.  I love the shampoo, will seriously check it out next time I need a shampoo (that will be many months later), the conditioner does the job - nice too!  Rating: 4.5/5 for shampoo, 3/5 for conditioner

  1. I'm so going to losing at the PvP this month. Look at the rate you're using up products!! WOW!

  2. Tao, no way! I may use up skin care/body hair stuff quickly but I don't really use up my make up that fast!

    We'll see by the end of this year! :P
