Autumn 2015 Empties (Very Long)

July, 1 of 4
This is a compilation of everything emptied from July to September 2015.  We also moved at the end of Sep so I threw away a lot of stuff (not all pictured).  There are loads of products, and I do not have plenty of time to type.  

Let's dash!

Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap #Honeysuckle (iHerb link) - is probably some of the best hand soaps out there.  Now that I've two bathrooms Mrs. Meyer's will always be my master-bathroom-hand-soap.  Currently using the Basil scent, which is almost as good as the Honeysuckle; but when I'm done I'll happily crack open my back up of Honeysuckle. :D Definitely recommend + will repurchase.

Boots Build Up Removal Shampoo - Meh.

Plantur 39 Conditioner - Didn't work.  My postpartum hair loss kind of slowed down by itself.

Lierac Phytolastil Solute - I have embraced the fact that my belly is covered in stretch marks.  Kind of using this just for the sake of using them up.

JimmBenny Peppermint EO - Used this to refill my reed diffuser.

Lierac Les Sensorielles Shower Gel - Lovely.

July, 2 of 4
Total Care Organic Hydrogel Mask - Meh.

DHC Cleansing Oil - My girl bought me this from Japan.  I've always liked this stuff, the special Alice in the Wonderland packaging made me ask for more after (quite) many years.  Still have one more to go.

Dolly Wink Volume Up Mascara Black - Meh.

Hugo Naturals Essential Mist French Lavender (iHerb link) - Used this up more for the smell than anything else.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals Fruit Enzyme Mist (iHerb link) - Slightly irritating to the eyes.

Tata Harper Restorative Eye Cream - Too few.  Some other things in the Essentials Kit did impress me though.

MJ Foot Care Pack - Nice.

Kracie Hadabisei Mask (?) - Not bad.  Very old, probably discontinued.

July, 3 of 4
姬利 Brown Sugar Herbal Care Bodywash - A gift for baby when he has quite dry skin and mild eczema.  Quite nice.

Royal Medic CS4 Cordyceps Capsules - Staple.

Madre Labs Omega-3 Premium Fish Oil (iHerb link to buy) - Okay.  Very affordable.

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo - Mr. A's favourite.  Repurchased.  Continue using.

Weleda Plant Gel Toothpaste (iHerb link to buy) - Nothing spectacular.  If you're finding Fl-free toothpaste you can give this a go.

Gatsby Cool Shock Deodorant Roll-On #Fresh Marine - Will repurchase this scent, after using up the couple of Adidas I recently got him.

July, 4 of 4
Bulgarian Rose Rose Water (too old), Naruko Lupin Anti-Wrinkle Firming Cleansing Gel (it's a thick gel that doesn't melt or emulsify well), AMPM Dark Circle Diminishing Eye Complex (old, I prefer a more substantial eye cream now)

August, 1 of 8
Est (by Kao) Skin Alive Massage - very nice.

Kao Steam Eye Mask #Unscented #Yuzu - staple.  Will forever repurchase.

Prof TK Alpha-Arbutin Whitening Bio-Cellulose Mask - nice.

Ren Mayblossom T-Zone Control Cleansing Gel - Meh.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel - I'm too old for this formula.

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser - Okay.

Nuxe Fondant Cleansing Gel - A pleasure to use, highly recommend.

Addiction Tinted Moisturizer #3 - Desperately want to go visit a counter (only in Japan though) and get some more Addiction.  Want to repurchase but cannot! :S

Dr. Wu Intensive Whitening Tonerwith Vit C+ - Okay.

Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence - Great, but expensive.  Caudalie Beauty Elixir shall do.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer #Ivory - Exceptional.  A bit of a pain to order online (ASOS or FeelUnique etc) but worth the hazzle.  I have so many concealers to go through though.  Recommend!

Badger Company Organic Lip Balm #Pink Grapefruit (iHerb link to buy) - Beautiful.  A good lip balm to try if you're looking for organic options.

August, 2 of 8

Epsom Salt - iHerb discontinued this, so after using up my stock I may try the EO Everyone brand (iHerb link).  Problem is, I haven't figured out how to take a bath at our new place (schedule-wise and tub-condition-wise).

Sai-Sei Mineral Refresh Bath & Shower Gel - Extraordinarily brilliant shower gel.  If I'd ever run out of shower gel or idea of what to repurchase I may get this from Space.NK, not cheap though.

50 Megumi Shampoo (for normal/oily hair) - As mentioned, my postpartum hair loss kind of slowed down by itself.

Lierac Phytolastil Gel - Didn't work on me.

Harnn Oriental Herbs Shower - Okay.  Products I got from this Thai brand all smell nice but slightly over-powering (for my current pregnant nose anyway).

Prita Shower Gel - Meh.

Lierac Les Sensorielles Body Exfoliator - Okay.

Botanics Microdermabrasion Polish Radiant Youth - Too harsh on the face, used it up on my body.

Re:>>> Natural Treatment
Re:>>> Treatment - Magazine freebies that look good and work very nicely.  Don't know much about this brand though.

Aromatherapy Associates Support Equilibrium Bath & Shower Oil - Tried to take as many baths as possible at our previous home so I ignored the 'pregnant warning'.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals Tropical Skin Smoother - Not my favourite from Mychelle.

Philip B. Peppermint & Avocado Volumizing & Clarifying Shampoo - Very cooling and enjoyable to use.  Want to get my hands on more.

Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner - If you haven't tried this and you don't hate the scent of rose(s), then I strongly urge you to give this a go.  It can be a treat to indulge in occasionally but so worth it.  Heavenly.

August, 3 of 8
Baby Hugo Naturals Baby Mist (iHerb link to buy) - For many months this was part of Monster Roma's sleeping routine.  I procured a back up but now that he's older I'm less regular at using this.  Very calming and soothing even for adults.

Royal Medic CS4 Cordyceps Capsules - Staple.

Vaseline Original - Mr. A used this on his body.  Glam.

August, 4 of 8

Lush Sikkim Girls - Strong and sexy perfume.  Moisturises and nourishes nicely but it has some crazy shimmer~

Beauty Formulas Regenerating Hand Cream - Meh.

Yojiya (Kyoto) Hand Cream - Too light.

August, 5 of 8

Mustela Nursing Comfort Balm - A nice cream I enjoy a lot.  Quite light though.  I think thicker, oilier formulae work feel better on me.

Aleva Naturals Nursing Balm - It is like a good petroleum jelly or alternative to lanolin (sheep grease).  It expired though.  I prefer Earth Mama Angel Baby's version (iHerb link to buy) because that is more nourishing (and smelt nicer).

Weleda Calendula Nappy Change Cream (iHerb link to buy)
- Thank God for Roma's butt has been behaving alright so far.  Used both of these several times and no adverse reactions.  No need for them though.

August, 6 of 8

MAC Trip: Total Face Kit (Cream Colour Base #Shell, #Secret Ceremony; Lipgloss #Stripped, #Rosehips; Iridescent Powder #Belightful) - Too old.  Have to B2M this.

Make Up Forever HD Blush #3 - So old it has dried up in the bottle.

Kate Gel Eye Liner #GD1 - Dried up.

August, 7 of 8
Tossed - Mainly too old or expired

Tony Moly Blueberry Lip Balm
The Body Shop Born Lippy Pink Guava Lip Balm
Hawaiian Tropic Tropical Flavor Lip Balm
Dr. Hauschka Lip Care Stick
Nivea Hydro Care (iHerb link to buy)
NRK Essential Rosehip Perfecting Elixir Multifuction Balm
Nivea Lip Butter #Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss (iHerb link to buy)

August, 8 of 8
Tossed - all expired.  I'm quite strict when it comes to lip balm (that can go into my mouth), eye lash product (into the eyes!) and sunscreen (expired means no protection).

Browlash Ex Lash Treatment 
Proactiv Solution Refining Mask
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer #Protect
La Roche Posay Uvidea XL BB Melt-in BB Cream
Hada Labo BB

September, 1 of 15
Bioderma Sensibio Dermatological Water - Caroline Hirons said this is a good one so I procured this as a replacement to the LRP Serozinc (too difficult to find).  This is OK, and I have a backup.  Will go through it before deciding repurchase or not.

The Face Shop Herb Water Powder Mist - Quite cooling and refreshing, and has slight drying effect on a humid day, with the powder inside it.

Mineral Care Spa Hydra Mask - A great hydrating mask with green tea scent.

Nuxe Fondant Cleansing Gel
La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel

Collistar Cleansing Make-Up Remover Micellar water - Not bad.

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask - Some of the impressive ones from the kit I tried.  I like it only takes 5 minutes to see results, and isn't irritating.

September, 2 of 15
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye - Very nice indeed and a good generous travel/sample size.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo - Did help my break-outs to heal faster but not treat them like magic potion.

Estee Lauder Idealist - Quite silicone-y and had not seen results.

Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum - Like this a lot.  Probably my favourite out of the kit.

Tata Harper Repairative Moisturizer - Dislike this.  It is very drying.  Face feels much tighter and uncomfortable than nothing on.

Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Cream - Meh.

Cle de Peau Beaute Gentle Nourishing Emulsion - Okay.  I think there are more outstanding products, skin care or make up, from CdPB than this.  Nonetheless nice to have.

September, 3 of 15 
Kao Steam Eye Mask #Yuzu - STAPLE.

LoveMore Wild Yam Firming Mask Sheet - Yes.

Dewytree Tea Tree Trouble Solution Mask - Meh.

Mamonde Double Effect Ampoule Mask #Ultra Moisturizing - VERY GOOD.  Want more.

Ki Sensitive Moisturizing Paper Mask - Meh.

BioHerb Mask - Meh.

Astalift Moisturizing Mask - Meh.

September, 4 of 15
Suqqu Face Protector 50 - Meh.

Shiseido Relaxing Fragrance - Very old.

L'Oreal Le Touche Magique Perfect Match Concealer Natural Beige - Okay.  Decent coverage, but the brush applicator got pretty gross.

Majolica Majorca Automatic Liner #BR622 - Great one.

September, 5 of 15
Dove Invisible Dry Deo - Okay.

(? brand)Bath Oil - Meh.

Badger Company Calming Baby Oil (iHerb link to buy) - Didn't moisturise or calm Mr. Monster Roma but I did use it on myself.  Not bad.  Wish it smells better.

Neal's Yard Remedies Aromatic Foaming Bath - Meh.

Indigo Wild Zum Wash #Frankincense & Myrrh (iHerb link to buy) - Very strong, quite masculine but I like.  Frankincense and myrrh is a combo that never fails to enlighten me.  Perhaps I'll buy one for Mr. A so I can smell it on him... Hmmm...

Prija Shower Gel - Meh.

Primera Body Scrub Walnut - No.

September, 6 of 15

Desert Essence Green Apple & Ginger Shampoo (iHerb link to buy) - Very nice.  I prefer this than the Grape one.  Very willing to repurchase this or try the Coconut version.

Earth Science Deep Conditioning Masque for Hair Olive & Avocado (iHerb link to buy) - Delicious smelling and ultra nourishing.  If you have to get one thing from iHerb, try this.

Re:>>> Platinum Treatment - Okay.

September, 7 of 15
JimmBenny Tea Tree Cooling Conditioner - Mr. A's favourite budget conditioner. Surely will buy more for him.

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo - Mr's A's current shampoo.

Candle Lite Balance - Not bad.

Materna Prenatal/Postpartum - I'm both, lol, and will be on these pills until end of 2016 probably?

Royal Medic CS4 Cordyceps Capsules

September, 8 of 15
Aroma Naturals Soy Pillar Candle #Meditation, Patchouli & Frankincense (iHerb link to buy) - I have no immunity to frankincense scents, and this is a very good blend.  It didn't burn too well down to the bottom though.  Could be my problem, can't tell for sure.

Lush Rub Rub Rub - It is a sea salt scrub similar to Big Shampoo so I used it as a volumising shampoo.  I like it in my hair than on my body.

Eco Pure Smoothing Body Butter #Cocoa Butter - Meh.

Aleva Naturals Sleep Easy Hair & Body Wash (iHerb link to buy) - A perfect wash for bedtime routine and sensitive baby skin.  We were using a pink one from Pureen (gift from a friend) and Roma's skin reacted.  Turned to this and he's perfectly fine within days.  This Aleva may not the best value for amount you get, so next time we're probably trying the lavender one from EO Everyone one (iHerb link to buy).  *Roma is currently using EO Everyone Coconut + Lemon (iHerb link).

Mandom Ladies Hair Energizer Tonic - Invigorating but doesn't work magic.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Emulsion - Okay.

Acca Kappa White Moss Shower Gel - Smells great but that's it.

September, 9 of 15

Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder - Enzyme face wash powder.  Quite interesting and fun to use every now and then but not necessity.

Fasio Mascara Remover - Handy to have around.  Still have some more tubes that came with combo sets.

Clarins HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase - Like this a lot, but do not like the cream.  I find the serum works very well on its own or layered with any other thing.

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser - Quite nice, will also consider repurchasing this.

Dr. Hsieh Cleansing Oil - No.

Clarins HydraQuench Cream #Normal to dry skin - Meh.  At least it smells good.

Trilogy Cream Cleanser - Meh.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution - Staple.  Still have so many to use up.

Chanel Le Lift - Meh.

September, 10 of 15 
LoveMore Wild Yam Firming Mask Sheet - Yes.

DewyTree Ceramide Nutrition Solution Mask - Okay.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit #Sand - Very old.  Reviewed.

L'Oreal Lucent Magique Light Touch-Up Pen - Okay.

Hera HD Powder Pact - The case broke and I'm done with it.  Reviewed.

September, 11 of 15
Parasola UV Cut Spray - Very convenient.  May buy next Summer.

Acure Cell Stimulating Facial Mask (iHerb link to buy) - Funny consistency which foams up when you wash it off.  Not the best scent so I won't repurchase.

Nature Republic Bee Venom Pink Spot - Didn't do much.

Suqqu Reset Cleansing Cream - Very decent but too expensive.

Michael Todd Aloe & Cucumber Towelettes - Dried up too soon.  Not effective.

September, 12 of 15
Nanogen Treatment Serum - Mr. A's last bottle.  The effect was only significant for the first two bottles I think.

The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel - Hands down my favourite scent on Mr. A in terms of shower gel.  Fresh, sexy, clean and lovely.  Already has a back up of this giant bottle.  YES.

Agave Healing Oil Oil Treatment - Meh.

September, tossed, 13 of 15

Peter Thomas Roth SPF - Very heavy and greasy.  Yuck.

Holika Holika Olive Cleansing Cream - Too old.

Holika Holika Kiwiade Cleansing Cream - Too old.

Neal's Yard Remedies Frankincense Nourishing Cream & Hydrating Cream - Both half used and expired.  Like them but lesson learnt - don't hoard.

September tossed, 14 of 15

Derma E Psorzema Creme (iHerb linkt to buy) - Got this for Mr. A but he never uses it.  Annoying hubby.

Vaseline Baby - I must have been sick to get such a gigantic tub.

Aroma Pacific MEN Essential Fluid - Mr. A doesn't care for his skin apart from washing it when he has break-outs.  This smells just like cologne and I don't know what to do with it, can't even put it on my legs...

Neal's Yard Remedies Rejuvenating Frankincense Toner - Expired.

AMPM Desert Extreme Hydra Eye Cream - Very thick hence very difficult to go through in time.  My bad to hoard so many eye products.

Urban Decay 24/7 #Zero - Must be my eye problem, smudges on me.

Benefit #Samba-dy loves me #Birthday suit #Skinny jeans - Too old.

September tossed, 15 of 15


Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Toning Lotion Cool - Not only am I currently not keen at whitening (I will never be as fair as my son. sad.), but also this is targeted at pore-minimising (at least that's what the beauty assistant told me) with a good amount of alcohol in it.  I don't find it particularly drying but it is too 'cooling' or refreshing for my likings.

Macadamia No Tangle Pre Styler - I have too few hair to enjoy this, kind of weighed it down.

Acure Organics Eye Cream Chlorella + Edelweiss Stem Cell (iHerb link to buy) - Nothing wrong, just the tube is too big (30 ml) and I am bored before using this up.

AMPM Desert Extreme Hydra Mask - It has a lovely soft lavender-ish scent which is very pleasant to use.  Had it opened for too long though, need to go.
