It is the year of the rooster! I’m a goat so it’s not that exciting because it isn’t my year but I still love CNY because I get to eat so much good Chinese food. Right now I’m in hardcore food coma, but I’m forcing myself to blog so that I don’t fall asleep. I used to fall victim to food coma all the time and then gain a lot of weight afterwards. Ugh, why can’t we all just have crazy fast metabolisms so we can eat all we want and not get fat?!
Anyways, I’m sorry for the late post. I was really busy yesterday and didn’t get a chance to blog. So today’s post is to make up for that. Last time I featured all my makeup empties. If you missed it, you can read it here. Today I will be showing and talking about all the skincare product empties that I have. A lot of these products have already been mentioned in previous posts. So for those products I won’t repeat myself unless I’ve got more to say. I’ll link the posts where I talked about them so you can catch up if you missed it. Also, don’t forget – I will also show what products I got to replace the empties.
Tree Hut – Shea Sugar Scrub ($7.69)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this body scrub. It works so well. There isn’t a waxy or oily residue and it smells AMAZING! I’ve tried 3 different scents so far and I like them all. I highly recommend this product!
Haven’t tried other micellar waters, but I have tried other makeup removers such as the Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover and the L’Oreal Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover. Compared to those, this micellar water doesn’t irritate, sting, or make my eyes water. I would recommend this product because it’s perfect for sensitive eyes. However, I’m not going to repurchase it just yet. I really want to try the micellar waters by Garnier and Nyx! (previously mentioned here)
After I take off my makeup using a makeup remove wipe and using the micellar water to take off waterproof eye makeup, I go in with a cleanser. I think this is my 4th bottle? This cleanser used to be my Holy Grail makeup remover, until I read the “expert” review on Paula’s Choice (click here for full review). In the review, it says that this product is overloaded with irritating ingredients like fragrant oils and black pepper extract, which apparently causes collagen and free-radical damage. Other reviewers are saying that Paula’s Choice is being melodramatic. So yea, maybe I shouldn’t have read that review but I can’t bring myself to use it anymore. I have seen an improvement in my skin texture, but I can’t say that it was solely due to me using less of this product. (previously mentioned here)
I work in a lab and wear gloves all day. During my work day, I change out my gloves and wash my hands constantly. So my hands are always really dry. I tried several different hand creams and it wasn’t giving my hands enough hydration. I went to Lush and a sales associate recommended this hand cream for my dryness. It works wonderfully – it isn’t too thick and keeps my hands hydrated. HOWEVER, I hate that it comes in a cup. I like when products come in a pump or a tube. When I have to dip my finger into a product, I feel like I’m contaminating it. Another thing is that this product took me a about a year to finish using, which was really close to the expiration date. Towards the end, the product started to smell sour. So I do highly recommend this product but make sure to use it up ASAP.
Missha – All Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel SPF 30 ($14) – previously mentioned here
Clinique – Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion ($14.50-26) – previously mentioned here
Nivea – Moisturizing Creme ($6.50)
I’ve been using these new products for about 2-3 weeks now, but I’m not going to share my opinions just yet. If I did, this post would be super long. So I don’t want to do that, but I will let you know which ones I like in an update and which ones I hate in a disappointing products post.
Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you have any recommendations for combo/dry skin, please leave it below. I’m always up for trying new things! That’s a wrap for today! Talk to you later~
