❄️January empties❄️

While my December empties were mostly the products I loved and enjoyed using, in January I made an effort to also use up the products I’m not enjoying. I don’t like to be wasteful, so always try to finish everything, unless my skin is reacting badly to it. ♥️Products I loved: ⭐️Strivectin Multi-action Blue Rescue Clay Renewal Mask - really nice colour changing clay mask that doesn’t dry up on the face! ⭐️Clinique Anti-fatigue Eye Gel - my HG products for de-puffing the eyes! (the one I have on a picture is from men’s line as the lady’s one was out of stock, they are identical ingredients wise though). ⭐️Clinique All about Eyes Cream - ophthalmologist tested, fragrance free formula with pleasant texture that works great under makeup. 😕Products that aren’t bad, but I didn’t love: ⭐️Jumiso Pore-Rest PHA9 Deep Purifying Facial Toner - it does gently exfoliate and hydrates the skin, but the texture is too slippery and doesn’t absorb well, also feels a bit sticky. ⭐️A’pieu Mineral eau-marine Lip & Eye Remover - it removes all my eye and lip makeup well, but makes the area around my eyes feel dry. ⛔️Products I’m definitely not repurchasing: ⭐️Jouviance Glicolaser 5 Soft Peel Mask - clay mask texture that has sandy feel to it and smells really bad. Contains just 5% Glycolic Acid, but for some reason it stings like hell. Used it up on my feet😆 ⭐️Ren Clean Skincare Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic - unpleasant scent, foamy and sticky, burns my face pretty bad even though I’m not new to AHA. Can’t use it on face, so finished on the body. ⭐️Bite Agave+ Weekly Lip Scrub - quite expensive, but absolutely doesn’t worth it and doesn’t do much for my lips. Also sugar crystals are pretty big and feel abrasive. ⭐️Clinique Blackhead Solution 7 Day Deep Pore Cleanse & Scrub - it’s clay based product with abrasive particles, so I can’t see anybody using it as daily cleanser. It is ok as a mask, but I didn’t notice any improvement in blackheads. ⭐️Clinique Blackhead Solution Self-heating blackhead extractor - it does develop warming sensation when applied on the skin, but it doesn’t extract anything. The massage applicator is plastic and feels rough.

❄️❄️December empties❄️❄️

Getting to the bottom of my skincare jars and tubes is incredibly satisfying for me🤣😅, especially when most of those products were great! ❤️ ♥️Products I loved♥️ ❄️Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence - my HG product! It was my 3rd bottle! It’s nourishing, repairing and hydrating without feeling heavy and it works perfectly for my skin! ❄️Boiderma Hydrabio H2O micellar water makeup remover - this is my go to product for removing eye makeup! I don’t like oil based products around my eyes and this is a great alternative that does a great job! ❄️Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment - one of not many eye creams I’ve tried that actually does show the results! The “crow’s feet” around my eyes became a little less visible and dark circles got slightly lighter. ❄️Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Ampoule - really loved this one! It feels more like essence rather then ampoule, but it’s super hydrating and soothing! ❄️Make P:rem Safe Me. Relief Moisture Cleansing Foam - great cleanser for second cleanse! It has really nice texture, not stripping or irritating and cleanses really well! ❄️Jumiso Pore-Rest LHA Sebum Control Facial Cream - great moisturizer for oily skin! Non-sticky, non-greasy formula, absorbs perfectly without any residue and does reduce sebum production. ❄️I’m From Fig Cleansing Balm - great oil-based cleansing balm with amazing texture and smell that does a great job removing makeup and sunscreen. It is fragranced, however, it didn’t bother my skin at all. 💚Products that are ok, but I didn’t love and won’t repurchase💚 ❄️Herbivore Prism 12% AHA + 3% BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum - it is a quite nice serum and the packaging looks absolutely adorable, however, it’s pretty gentle and doesn’t really stands out to me among other exfoliating products. Besides, it’s quite pricey (~56USD). ❄️Make P:rem Safe Me. Relief Essence Toner - it’s a nice toner with great ingredients and texture. It does hydrate, however, I didn’t notice any soothing effect. ❄️Biossance Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask - it is all in one treatment - peel, exfoliator and mask with different kinds of AHAs. It is a good mask that worked well for me, it’s just too pricey for what it is (~50USD).

🌷💖April empties💖🌷

♥️❤️Products I loved and will repurchase: ✅Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm - my go to cleansing balm! No fuss, fragrance free, works really good. I’ve emptied over ten of full sized ones over the years! ✅HaruHaru Wonder Black Rice Cleansing Gel - absolutely great second cleanser! Non-stripping, fragrance-free, leaving the skin feeling fresh, clean and balanced. ✅Caudalie Instant Detox Mask - excellent non-drying clay mask that makes my pores appear cleaner and smaller. I know this one has a new look now, not sure if the formula is changed as well though. ✅JMsolution Honey Luminous Royal Propolis Serum - I really love the texture and smell of this serum and the beautiful glow it gives to my skin. However, it’s not available to buy anywhere for a while, so I’m afraid it might be discontinued. ✅Potions Peptide Ampoule - I love peptides in skincare and this one was great! Nice texture, great formula, affordable price! ✅Peace Out Acne Serum - I don’t like it’s smell much, but it works great treating and preventing breakouts, so I’m going to get a full size of it! 🤔🤷🏼‍♀️Products that are ok, but I didn’t love and not planning to repurchase: ✅ HaruHaru Wonder Black Rice Hyaluronic Cream - beautiful packaging, great moisturizer, but has way too overpowering lavender scent. ✅Potions Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule - nothing wrong with a product itself, but Hyaluronic Acid is everywhere now, so I won’t stick just with this particular formulation. ✅Thank You Farmer Sun Project Water Sun Cream - it has pleasant texture and smell, but the finish is way to dewy for my oily skin. I always had to apply setting powder on top to don’t look greasy. ⛔️👎The products I didn’t like: ✅Clinique All About Clean rinse-off Foaming Cleanser - not a fan of this one.. it cleanses well and it’s not stripping, but I don’t like how my face feels after using it. There seem to be some kind of residue left on my skin. Too bad I also have a full size of this one.. ✅Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil - way too greasy and way too fragranced. The smell is honestly giving me a headache. Glad it was just a tiny sample that came as gift with purchase.
