Finished Fortnight #9 | 蝸牛面膜！？
Let's start off with skin care, shall we?
Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream 德國世家
Full review here. I used this up mainly on my back in the shower.
Clé de Peau Beauté Gentle Nourishing Emulsion
Full review here. The empty bottle is now refilled with Naruko Rose Moisturizer which I love very dearly.
Rating: Okay (if you have the cash and age, try it. if you don't, skip it)
Dr. Hauschka Lip Balm (shop link) 德國世家
Love this stuff, already have a back-up. Not the most convenient thing to use, but great as an overnight treatment. I also adore the Lip Care Stick, which I also have a back-up of. Note: I'm one step further to finishing P10P!
Yves Rocher Cure Solutions Anti-Aggressions 24-HR Antioxidant Shield Serum
Runny-milky-lotion kind of serum. It has a grassy natural scent which I'm not particularly fond of. I like to use this as my 1st or 2nd serum at night, although it can also be used in the morning.
Rating: No Way.
Decleor NutriDivine Nutriboost Soft Cream for Face
This is a face moisturiser for dry skin. It is already too rich for me during this late Winter/eary Spring time. I enjoyed the nutrients, nourishment and moisture. Not much skin can benefit from this heavy cream in this humid weather in HK though, I guess.
Olay White Radiance Pristine White Essence
Very light, very quick to absorb and leaves skin soft and supple. I notice a great difference in brightness only after 1 usage. Great stuff
Rating: Hurray. I will love to get a full size of this.
Olay White Radiance Pure White Emulsion
Has a strange scent of coconut or something (forgot). Not a big fan of the texture either.
Rating: Okay/No Way
I did a separate post on these six snail masks. Out of them, I only recommend and will repurchase the bottom right one from Dr. Post.
近期迷上了蝸牛面膜。把市面上不貴的都差不多買回來試。上面的六款，英文試用報告（連結）。比較推右下方，兩個步驟那款，可以在萬寧買到，約港幣 20 多。其他五款都普普。我還有另外的牌子在手邊，用過後再報告。
Oscar Blandi Olio di Jasmine Hair Serum
It smells of amazing jasmines. I am not a huge fan of jasmine mainly because I have been drinking too much jasmine tea for the 20+ years in my life. Haha. I used this on the ends of my hair when I blow dry it after wash every night. The effect was okay. I think I preferred the Ojon one better.
Giovanni 50:50 Balanced Hydrating Clarifying Shampoo (fro normal to dry hair)
Not impressed. It foams, it washes, it conditions; but not very special. Recommend to those who are really into pure organic body/hair care range.
Collistar Thermoactive Talasso-Scrub
Got it for free from Sasa. I love it really stimulates and warms up (gently) the skin, and gives a very nice exfoliation. Enjoy very much using these. I will keep an eye out when this has promotional set or discounts.
大愛。沙沙有在賣。等我清掉櫃裡的身體磨砂 或 我（再次）發胖到六十公斤 或 颯颯出清，我就回購！
Rene Furterer Tonucia Anti-Age Toning and Densifying Conditioner
Not impressed, nothing to say. On the packaging, the French says masque, and the English says conditioner? I will still use the other sample of this that I have; perhaps I will have a change of opinion?
Diptyque Luxurious Hand Balm
A thick balm that starts of rather creamy and smooth, but later in the pot, it separates into an oil and a dry flat balm.
Rating: No Way
Choifung JimmBenny Peach and Shea Butter Conditioner
Choifung JimmBenny Peach and Shea Butter Shampoo
Not bad stuff, just not special.
Nivea Firming Body Oil
This has has Q10 and Avocado Oil and suits all skin types. Deliciously smelling. Runs like perfume oil. Very light in texture but makes my skin soft like marshmallow. Thanks for sending me, Sam!
Rating: Hurray! Will run out to repurchase if only I can! This stuff is, sadly, not available in Hong Kong.
Naruko Facial White Illuminating Cotton Pads - Hurray
Colgate Cavity Protection Toothpaste - Hurray (mentioned in last post)
Miffy baby wipes - Okay (mentioned in previous post)
I adore the Naruko Facial White Cotton. On one side there is a net/textured surface, good for very mild exfoliation; I usually use it for toner or cleansing water. The other side is a basic smooth cotton side, same as the Purple box Naruko cotton. I use this also for cleansing water, or to apply lotion. Love these, and I'm still stocked with 2 boxes of back-ups. lol.
There are only 2 Disappointingly Discarded (borrowed name from Ari)
Anthong pump dispenser - Intended to use it for Bioderma when I travel, but it leaks like hell. Can only use it on desktop (what's the point?) Basically, I wasted $8 on this small size, and another $10 on a medium size (which I will discard soon, probably in next post).
Eyeko Bronzing Cream and Highlight Cream - I gave away the two full size to my friend long time ago. I did a sample of both as I thought they can be easy to carry around and play with. Nah. I don't like either of them. I guess Eyeko doesn't like either of them, too, as it has now focus on making eye products. Clever.
Have you threw out or used up anything recently? Tell me! I want to know, I need to know!
Jumbo - 0
Full Size - 19 + 3
Deluxe Sample - 15 + 6
Small Sample - 14 + 7
Sheet Masks - 9 + 4
Random - 12 + 3
Tossed - 26 + 2
