Finished Fortnight #18 | Awesome August 長話短說



幾天以前,做了個決定。
就是:
旅行裝/小容量的試用品,
除了特別有感覺的產品,都不多寫了。
因為如果每樣都寫,這樣子,
一篇文章,長到我都不想寫了!

請見諒~

From this Finished Fortnight post onwards, I've decided that for deluxe or small size samples, unless they're particularly impressively good or bad, I'll just list them out and skip reviewing in depth.  Not that I'm previously discussing them in any particular length, but considering the quantity I'm covering, it is better to be concise - this way I can ensure myself to 'finish' each post to the schedule I desire... Moreover, it is not enough usages to firmly decide on a certain product with a small sample, don't you think so?

Thank you for your consideration! ;)

Full Size

JimmBenny Aloe Vera Anti-acne Cleansing Mousse - Joyeux Jacq

This was gone through like water.  Cleansers that come in foam dispenser tend to be pretty diluted, therefore this is understood to be done in a month's constant use.  I like this, and will repurchase it to keep my back issue at bay.  Right now my back acne are kind of under control thanks to an array of sprays and frequent scrubbing.  When I set foot near any Choi Fung store, I'll pick up another one of this.
[很不錯]挺好用。通常直接擠出豐盈泡沫的清潔(洗臉/洗澡),都是稀釋的。如果經過彩豐行,會回購。

Naruko Lupin Anti-Wrinkle Firming Toning Emulsion - Just Jacq
Used this with cotton pad.  Smelt of plant roots, something like ginseng.  Nice light texture.  Not sure about the anti-wrinkle property.  Good stuff just not something I'd particularly miss.
[普通]有淡淡的草本/植物根莖/人參味道,清爽的乳液,有一點點凝露的感覺。不特別看到抗皺的成效(其實我是貪玩試這款的,不是有需要…)。應該不會回購了~


Scholl Rough Skin Remover - Black Jacq
This stuff, as you can see from the ingredients list, is literally grounded pumice stone.  Very effective in taking off thick dry rough skin, patches or all over your feet.  Not a good idea to use this other than feet or elbow as this will scratch more delicate skin, i.e. normal skin over limbs.  I adore this stuff as I'm lazy and inconsistent when it comes to feet scrubbing - this does the job, very powerfully and effort-less.  Note: need to hunt this down and repurchase.
[超推薦]其實是一支磨細了的浮石磨砂。去腳部的死皮超有力。不過要小心不能用在其他部位,恐怕會見紅~ XD


Deluxe Sample/ Travel Size

Erb Eastern Treat Aromatic Hand Cream - Joyeux Jacq
Lovely, light, fast-absorbing.
[很不錯]可口,很好吸收。

Nuxe Fondant Cleansing Gel Face and Eyes with Rose Petals * - Joyeux Jacq [很不錯]

Guerlain Secret de Purete Cleansing Milk * - Non Jacq
Overly-fragranced.  A little irritating over my facial skin.  :S
[不推薦]過香。有點小刺激。

Dermalogica Multivitamin Thermafoliant * - Just Jacq [普通]

Suisai Beauty Clear Powder - Joyeux Jacq[很不錯]

No.7 Purifying Mask * - Just Jacq [普通]


Aubrey Organics Scalp-Soothing Shampoo Primrose & Lavender - Just Jacq [普通]

Kerasys Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner - Joyeux Jacq[很不錯]

Za Eye & Lip Makeup Remover - Joyeux Jacq
Pretty effective with enough 'oiliness'.
[很不錯]夠油好卸

Clark's Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask * - Joyeux Jacq
Has a very beautiful not-too-strong grass scent.  Soft clay type, comfortable to wear and easy to wash off.  Skin feels great and looks a little more 'radiant', perhaps.
[很不錯]有青草香,很滑順好洗。喜歡。


Small Sample

Lactacyd Femine Daily Wash Extra Moisturising *
(unknown Spanish) Extra Virgin Olive Oil * - Used this in my hair as a pre-shampoo treatment.
The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter *
Astalift Cleansing Oil * - This stuff is red/pink in colour!
Revlon -> see below

Dresdner Essenz Creme Body Cream "Black Grape" - Took a while to sink in, but great scent.


Schwarzkopf Extra Care Hair Repair Q10 Recharge Mask *
Zofia Whitening Cleansing Gel *
Suisai Beauty Clear Powder
Joseristine Hydrating Treatment


Others

Mannings Extra Large Round-Head Cotton Tips

Joseristine Multi-Functional Cotton Pads - Non Jacq
The ultra thin cotton pad with pink dots do nothing.  Also, too thin to even hold. :S

Crabtree & Evelyn Rose Cologne *

(no brand) Sponge

Daiso Aroma Oil "Fresh Lavender"


Leader's Clinic AC-Dressing Skin Clinic Mask * - Joyeux Jacq

Not sure if this came free with a magazine or not.  Generally Leader's Clinic makes great sheet masks.  This has snail extract and is for sensitive/troubled skin.  Love it.



Joseristine Cotton Puff - Non Jacq
Rough!  The slip-in-finger design is pretty trashy.

Superdrug Cotton Wool Pads - Just Jacq
Large and pretty textured, like it for whole face as the surface can take off a lot of make up.  The roughness is only good for cleaning though...


Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Color "47 Medium Rich Brown"


His

Lush It's Raining Men Honey Rich Shower Gel

Nanogen Shampoo


The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer


Tossed

Canmake Cream Cheek "01" - because the lid is broken and it kept attacking the product.  Full Review link!

  1. I would like to try the Rough Skin Remover...
    I'm lazy too when it comes to feet scrubbing. My sister love Revlon ColorSilk dyes, although they have a rather strong smell...
    I find cream blushes hard to finish but they are so practical <3

    1. Eugenia,
      that rough skin remover is really spectacular, but i don't see it in store these few weeks when I search...
      hopefully I will come across one of them soon :S
