Oil Up for the Dry Weather | Inventory #27

I was going through my skin care storage, trying to discover one or two category where I am slightly low in, so that I can justify ordering some purchases from Tokyo (my mum and brother are travelling there).  Result?  I am not low in anything, so my 2016 no-buy shall probably still stand.  This inventory check serves as a reminder to not accumulate too many.  Hmm... Are there any other skin care categories you'd like me to do an inventory post, or overview of any brands.  I may be able to do that.  ;)

Here I show what I'm the 'lowest' in, that is, facial oil, oil-based serum and some serum capsules.

Ren - Bio Retinoid Anti-Ageing Concentrate 30 ml Made in the UK
*In a set purchased from Space NK UK Website
I've been using this once a week, irregularly for some time, and have been even more irregular now.  I use it as a 'pre-serum' after wash and tone, before other serums or moisturiser.

Ole Henriksen - Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil 15 ml Made in USA
*Available from Sephora (gift from a friend, thanks Ari!)
This bottle is probably half empty, as I like to use it as last-step moisturiser or mixed with other creams when I'm feeling a little dry.  Quite nice.  When I finish this I will use RMK or Balm Balm to replace it.

Josie Maran - 100% Pure Argan Oil 15 ml Oil imported from Morocco. Assembled in USA
*Available from Sephora (got from a swap, thanks Tracy!)
I use a cotton bud to dab this around my eyes, including lash line, to remove last traces of make up (after makeup removal, wash and tone).  It also nourishes my lashes.

all brand new not yet opened
RMK - W Treatment Oil 50 ml Made in Japan
Kose - Sekkisei Supreme Whitening Herbal Oil 40 ml Made in Japan
*Purchased from Japan (read more about that big fat haul)
Plan to use these as replacement after some of my current ones are done.  The Kose whitening one I definitely want to use when my freckles show up again once the weather warms up again (not that it is cold now... sigh...)

Dr. Wu - Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalane 15 ml Made in Taiwan
*Purchased from Taiwan (read more about the trip and the haul)
The bottle is large but it only comes with a humble amount of product.  Deceiving packaging~

Balm Balm - Frankincense Light Facial Oil 10 ml Made in England
*Purchased in a set from Feel Unique (

Tarte - Pure Maracuja Oil 7 ml Made in Brazil & filled in Taiwan
*Available at Sephora (got mine from a Swap, thanks Vivian!)

Odacite - CaR Wild Carrot Facial Serum Concentrate 5 ml Made in USA
Odacite - Gt + L Green Tea Lemongrass Facial Serum Concentrate 5 ml Made in USA
*Available on Cult Beauty (got both from Goody Bag, read more here)
Haven't tried these out yet.

Balm Balm - Little Miracle Rosehip Serum 30 ml Made in England
*Purchased mine from Glamabox
Predominantly, it is a bottle of rosehip oil with other oils blended in.  I find it quite oily to use, so a few drops is all you need.  I tend to use it as moisturiser (later stage), not a serum, as I find it slightly harder to absorb, compared to something like Ren or the capsules below.

Elemis - Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules 60 x 0.21 ml Made in England
*Purchased mine in a set from Look Fantastic (
There are 30 pink Rose Absolute for day, and 30 green high altitude Lavender for night.  I have used more green than pink ones, but I like them both.

Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Advanced Time Complex Capsules 30 x 0.46 ml Made in Canada
*Purchased from Sasa (haul post here)
Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Capsules 7 x 0.46 ml Made in Italy
*Purchased from Sasa (haul post here)
There are far too many capsules on the Elizabeth Arden webpage I have no idea which is which.  I enjoy these and I find the content pretty generous.  One capsule is adequate for my full face and neck, a little massage and then my hands too.
