Dr. Morita (Sum Tin 森田藥粧) - Whitening Face Cleanser
Joseristine - Salicylic Acid Cleansing Gel
Essence - Eye Makeup Remover *oil-free
Neutrogena - Pure Glow Daily Cleansing Cushions
-->> all four goes to my sister Jen
The Dr. Morita whitening cleanser is the foaming type, which I found too drying. After my sister gave it a few tries, she decided that it is also pretty drying on her now (it's winter!). She decided that it would be a summer cleanser for her. Now I gave her another tube of Laneige multi cleanser travel size and Sana Soy travel size to try. Fyi, the Dr. Morita is a Taiwanese brand which makes pretty nice sheet masks, both face and eye ones. And I got this cleanser in a set of 5 (or 10?) masks and got this for free. :P
When I learnt about how salicylic acid is actually BHA and helps skin to slowly exfoliate and regenerate new layers, I went out and buy this cleanser. Joseristine makes very cheap and nice products and this cleanser, honestly, has nothing wrong. I just am not a fan of gel cleanser that doesn't foam or emulsify. BHA is good for exfoliating and my sister (the same one) has clogged pores on her arms. *Note: there's a more scientific name which I don't know.* She is now trying it on her body to see if it can help to clear out those problems.
Essence is not a brand I can buy in Hong Kong. My mum got me this cute pink make up remover among a bunch of other nail polishes, bronzers, (so on so forth), when she was in Europe a while back. This make up remover doesn't remove waterproof make up, full stop. This is the sentence! Jen likes its light-weight and clean zero-residue texture; and she decided she would take it. I'm more than happy to gift this to her. :)
The no-box cleansing pads are bought when According to the website: "NEUTROGENA® Pure Glow® Daily Cleansing Cushions are unique double-sided cleansing cushions that cleanse and exfoliate skin in one simple step." I bought it when I was desperate about one or two exceptionally stubborn pimples. After using 1 or 2 cushions, I decided my pimples were simply hormonal and I don't need this pack of deep cleansing pads. So now it's with my sister, who has more oily skin and is still in her puberty.
So here I am, some items I have found un-useful or simply not suit my routine that much. I don't expect you to 'enjoy' this post, but nevertheless hope you find this sharing helpful.
