Empties: September 2015
Lately, I've been looking through #projectpan on Instagram on a regular basis, there's nothing more satisfying than finished beauty products to make room for new ones.
As a turtle, I only managed to finish a small handful of products in the past couple of months.
Elucent Whitening Spot Corrector
I have a lot of freckles, they all tend to live on my nose and I hate it! Unfortunately most spot treatments are not effective on my skin due to the amount of time I spend in the sun. New freckles would have popped up before any could fade. Nonetheless, I loved this corrector as a serum, it hydrated my skin and provided a nice glow.
Repurchase? Already have another one!
John Plunkett Multi Vitamin Moisturiser
This is a heavy moisturiser that my skin loved during the winter months. It applies like a balm with light scents. A great winter moisturiser
Repurchase? Possibly after I finish a few of my other moisturisers!
Mary Kay Makeup Remover
This makeup remover was excellent, comparable to my Lancome and Shiseido removers. It took off my stubborn water resistant mascaras with ease. Also recommended for sensitive eyes/skin.
Repurchase? Yes definitely!
Murad Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser
This was a product I received from Megsmakeup back when her website had product redemption system. Otherwise I would not have a clue where to get Murad from Australia. This is a foam cleanser which I naturally disliked as I usually prefer cream or gel cleansers. Half way through the product, I started utilising my Shiseido Cleansing brush and it worked wonders. Foam cleanser + Cleansing Brush = Good outcome.
Repurchase? Probably not since I don't know where to find Murad in Sydney
Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive
This was a sample from a previous Lust Have It Box, I've seen some rave reviews about this product but I wasn't really sure what it did for my skin...? There was a slight stinging/minor burning sensation once the product was applied. My sun spots were still there, but my skin did feel smooth after I washed the content off my face.
Repurchase? I dont't think so, I didn't feel that the product was very effective on my skin
Aveda Purifying Gel Cleanser
So far, all Aveda products/samples I've tried had left a positive impression. This is a really gentle cleanser that left my face squeaky clean. I also love going to Aveda to get my hair checked under the microscope. Customer service is top notch!
Repurchase? I would definitely like to once I finish a few other cleansers!
I won't go into too much detail about the Clear Shampoo it didn't do anything out of the ordinary and cleaned my hair fine.
Here's a few samples I polished off, just wanted to quickly talk about the Rachel K's CC cream samples that I received from a previous LHI box, the shade is in Neutral and it was way too light, I had to use a darker tinted moisturiser or foundation on top to balance out the colour. However, it did cover most of my pores and blemishes, I still required concealer for more prominent blemishes.
