Finished Fortnight #13 | 特短的空瓶分享

While you're reading this, I'm enjoying my week-long break with Mr. A at Taiwan.  That explains why this empties post is shorter than usual (as I pre-wrote this), and I might be late at replying your comments!  


Okay - Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam - Came in the volcanic set with the mask.  I adore the mask, which totally inspired me to go back to my wash-off clay/cream masks, while this cleanser is just okay.  It has quite a strong scent, which I'm okay with, and a few beads in, which I don't mind.  It foams up decently and leaves skin very clean and not too dry.  Won't repurchase as it doesn't clean my 'pores', but it is a tube I enjoyed using.
Okay - Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner - Also came in the volcanic set.  This has clay 'sediment' inside that requires shaking up, similar to the Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic (which, Lisa Eldridge used in one of her bridal tutorial and made me want to try ever since...).  I quite like its feeling on the skin, and the results it gave.  Not dramatically tightening pores, nor keep shine at bay all day, but very fresh and oil-controlling.  Downside, it has a too-strong fragrance.
Okay - ampm Skin Ecological Complex (discontinued) - One of the serums I used to compare with the beloved Naruko Narcissus Fundamental Serum.  It is light and quite hydrating but not incredibly impressive.  
Okay - Naruko Narcissus Total Defense Night Brightening Serum (discontinued) - Also reviewed in the same comparison post.  I like this texture as a moisturising serum at night, didn't notice much brightening effect.  Giving the Apple Seed serum (old version, also discontinued) a try now.  Will report back later.  Reflection: I'm using up skin care way too slowly that I can't keep up with reviewing things before they got discontinued?!
No Way - Dr. G Multi Protection Cream SPF 30 - It was an okay product before I recently encountered better sun protection creams.  This is too thick and suffocating.  

Innisfree 在香港開幕不久買的火山泥面膜組,面膜我 大愛 ,洗臉和爽膚倒還好。除了有點過香以外,感覺不夠深層清潔和收毛孔;同類的我想試用 Kiehl's 的 亞瑪遜白泥 說。
牛爾的兩款精華液其實也聽產/改版了,就不多說了。用過這麼多款,最愛的還是第一代水仙滴管那瓶「基底液」,或許新出的【水仙DNA】奇蹟修護精華會差不多?(現在我在用舊版的蘋果籽精華,還好,可是,整條系列也剛改良了!?我用的真慢... XD)
Dr. G 的防曬,太厚,不喜歡。都是最近拿來塗脖子塗完的。

BeauuGreen Snail Essence Mask // Etude House Darling Sheet Mask (Snail) // RedSkin Snail Hydro-Gel Mask -- Will be discussed in my next snail mask post!


body and hair
the English side, fyi

Hurray - SebaMed Liquid Cleanser for sensitive skin - When I was small, my mum used to only use SebaMed on us when we took showers together.  This scent defnitely recalls (a lot of) memories.  Other than the fragrance, this shower is gentle, foamy and not drying.  A good one I'd always want to use, if it is not that expensive~
Okay - Dr. D BioTech Laboratory Anti-Hair-Loss Shampoo and Conditioner - Didn't harm nor benefit my hair/scalp.  I have a weird attraction towards the heavy cologne scent of the conditioner... :P
Okay - Kimiwa Horse Oil Mayu Bath Essence Conditioner - I don't condition my hair every wash, so I tend to go with something more effective, or 'heavy'.  This is very light and good as an everyday detangler.  Not one that I miss nor hate.  

Dr. D 和 肌馬油 的頭髮洗護不錯,但我在頭髮這個部門嘛,喜歡不聽轉牌子的。((雖然,對我已經日漸稀疏的毛髮未必是好事…))

Blotting paper - Just used this up for the sake of clearing it out.  I like using tissue or sponge to blot instead of blotting paper.

Brazilian Peel Clear Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment - Supposedly to be a peel/mask thing you do weekly to whole face.  Only tried this once on spots, very sticky and uncomfortable on. I don't have much acne to deal with, and I don't have skin that needs this weekly as a treatment.

I'm expecting to use up and feature more empties in the next post.  Meanwhile, what have you recently used up?

Beautiful wishes,
Lazy silly Jacq :")


  1. 我也想試Kiehl's的亞瑪遜白泥!

  2. I have chanced upon your blog while searching for Glamabox review. I love how many products you have and its really interesting to read on them. How do you keep track on all the stuff you have.

    1. Thanks Pepper for coming to my blog! To be honest, I'm constantly losing track with my products - they play hide and seek all the time... Not an organising/tidying expert, me... :P
