October & November Empties | Camera Fail

My box of December Empties is already full but I'm still struggling with finishing this post.  #cestlavieavecunbebe

CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir - Black Jacq /  Holy Grail
On the skin it is a toner with oil/serum infused, more nourishing than say, just a thermal water mist.  However, it really shines in aromatherapy; one sniff this brings me to 'heaven'.  I have repurchased from FeelUnique, which is more affordable than getting it locally from Sasa. 

NARUKO Narcissus Total Defense Fundamental Serum - Black Jacq / Discontinued
My last back up.  Sad.  Now I have to up my game and try something like Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair II.  Yes, this Naruko is as good as EL ANR.

SOFTYMO Hot Cleansing Gel - Joyeux Jacq / Good Stuff
A gel with some charcoal beads inside that act as scrub and warm up at the same time.  Really decent to clean the nose/cheek clogged pores.  Will consider repurchasing, especially enjoyable in cold seasons.

BIORE UV Aqua Rich - Joyeux Jacq / Love It
Moisturising and high protection.  May get another tube once I go through all my current sunscreen stash.

LANOLIPS 101 Ointment - Just Jacq / Okay *
Pure lanolin, i.e. wool grease.  Good as lip balm and nipple cream.  However, I can hardly find other uses for it as it is too sticky and thick.  Also the plastic tube slightly 'disintegrated/melted' after time.  Willl probably stick to other goo, e.g. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream for lip balm, and Alvera (link) or Earth Mama Angel Baby (link) for the other purpose - thankfully I do not need that regularly any more.

KAO Steam Eye Mask - Black Jacq / Holy Grail / All Time Must Have Necessity
#Eucalyptus, #Yuzi and #Fragrance-Free are all my favourites.  I have recently repurchased Chamomile and Lavender too.  Great deal to obtain them in Japan.

DOVE Go Fresh Regenerate Body Wash #Blue Fig and Orange Blossom Scent - Just Jacq / Okay
Not bad, but I'll repurchase other scents.

SUAVE Creamy Body Wash #Cocoa Butter and Shea - Joyeux Jacq / Like It A Lot
A way more affordable and practical way for me to get this which is a dupe for Bath and Body Works.  However, this is only temporarily available at 759 Stores.

WAKODO Honey Soap 
This is Baby Roma's body wash ever since around week 2.  My mum said I used this too when I was very young.  So far Baby has no adverse reaction to this bar soap in warm weather.  We're now on bar number two and there are two more backups.  However, the weather is too dry now he only bathes, and I have a fabulous bathing product that his skin likes.

FA Golden Star Deodorant - Black Jacq
One of my favourite scents from Fa.

GATSBY Deodorant Roll-On #Urban Ozone - His
Will continue to get Mr. A this as it works and smells nice.

JOSERISTINE Antiseptic Hand Wash Mousse - Okay
Foam is always quicker to use up.  now we're using Lifebuoy.  If antiseptic is not a huge concern (it's only ours since Baby arrived) I truly recommend Mrs. Meyer's, my favourite scent is Honeysuckle (link).

ULTRA READY Cotton Plus - Black Jacq / Will Always Repurchase

KAI Brow Comb/Brush
In fact I really like the brush side (made of coarse animal hair) but all the teeth in the comb part broke so it became a serious eyesore.

ESSENCE OF BEAUTY Foundation & Conceal Brush - No Way
Dual-ended brush isn't really my thing.

BELIF Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist - Joyeux Jacq / Like It *
It lasted me a long long time to finish up just a travel size tube.  Sadly, I do not have much (any?) loyalty to face cleansers...

D PROGRAM Moist Care Lotion - Nice Stuff
My skin isn't as sensitive or fussy now so I'll probably not go back for something this basic (aka boring).

CRABTREE & EVELYN Hand Recovery #Citron - Just Okay *
Not a hand scrub kind of person.  I used this on my legs.

MUSTELA Body Restructuring Gel - Just Okay *
Nice smell but that's it.

JOSERISTINE Anti-Acne Pimple Paper Mask - Good Stuff
I appreciate Joseristine (or Choi Fung in general) masks a lot.  

AUBREY ORGANICS Biotin Repair Renew & Replenish Conditioner #Citrus Rain (Product Link, Discount Code: JBF362) *

AUBREY ORGANICS Sea Buckthorn Nourishing Moisturizing Lotion (Product Link, Discount Code: JBF362) *

AUBREY ORGANICS GPB Balancing Protein Shampoo #Classic Scent (Product Link, Discount Code: JBF362) *

Probably enjoyed the body lotion the most, will consider these if I want to go organic in the future.

NANOGEN Thickening Treatment Shampoo For Men - His

BOOTS Expert Thickening Shampoo

JIMMBENNY Tea Tree Cooling Conditioner - His


NORDIC NATURALS Prenatal DHA (Product Link, Discount Code: JBF362) - Repurchased

WYETH Materna - Repurchased

ROYAL MEDIC 御藥堂 CS4 Cordyceps Capsules


JOSERISTINE Stretch Marks Improver Oil - Smells just like good old olive oil, feels like that too.

AMPM Super Triple HA + B3 Brightening Complex

HONEYBEE GARDENS #Soft Kiss (Product Link, Discount Code: JBF362) - Broken, depotted

MAC #Ruby Woo - Broke, depotted, will Back-to-MAC this tube

CALEB'S Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

BASE FORMULA Witch Hazel Hydrolat *

Given Away
HELENERE Hedelweiss Cleansing Foam * 
Too fragrant.  I much prefer the Hedelweiss cream and serum!

HELENERE Eyerem Eye Make Up Remover *
Not strong enough for waterproof eye makeup, which I wear regularly.  Great for light make up wearer and sensitive eyes.

L'OCCITANE Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette *

LUNABLEU Sake Fresh Type 

ESTEE LAUDER Pleasures Eau de Parfum *
