September 2017 Empties

And there goes another month. It feels like September just started, but it’s actually ending. Well, I accumulated another batch of ‘empties’ so it’s time to log them!


Troiareuke Acsen Oil Cut Cleansing

I don’t need to say too much since I did a full review on it, but I have to admit I did not repurchase because I used this up SO quickly. I can’t bear to cough up $38 every month or two for this.









Clinique Foaming Sonic Facial Soap

This facial soap is so drying! My face was incredibly tight and uncomfortable after cleansing.

Bonvivant Botanical Mask Pack- Sodium Hyaluronate + Lotus

Just like the other Bonvivant masks I tried, this one didn’t do much. The mask itself was really thin and the essence wasn’t that hydrating.

Leaders AC Clear Treatment Mask

It’s hard to say if this really worked on blemishes because I tried this when I started getting shingles. I thought the red bumps on my face were pimples, but they actually weren’t.  It was more hydrating than expected!

My Beauty Diary Red Vine Mask

I have yet to be disappointed by My Beauty Diary masks. I’ve liked all the masks I’ve tried from them! This one in particular instantly brightens and whitens my face in one sitting. No joke you can see a line of difference where my sheet mask doesn’t cover.

Juara Radiance Enzyme Scrub

This was a sample I got in my Ipsy bag and I didn’t enjoy it. The smell was a little weird and I didn’t find it worth purchasing a full size.




Clarisea SeaSalt Solutions

This was another Ipsy bag sample and I actually liked this one! It’s just sea salt, but I like how effective it was in clearing up my skin on my face and back.  Wouldn’t purchase full size because I have a huge Costco size bottle of fine sea salt sitting in my kitchen.








Skin Inc – Hyaluronic Acid Serum + Vitamin A Serum + Chlorella Serum

This was part of last year’s holiday gift sets and was not impressive. The idea was really neat- you get 3 different serums to mix together into one large dropper bottle. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any difference in my skin when using this customizable serum.




Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Day Tint

You know how Asian bb creams don’t have the best color options? Some either lean too grey or pink? This one is actually just right! It is really sheer and moisturizing so oily friends, beware. 









Avene Eau Thermale

This was either from Birchbox or Ipsy, but it doesn’t matter because at the end of the day this is just a bottle of water to me. I used it to freshen up my face after applying makeup when I didn’t have my fix+.









Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise

Is it a sty or shingles? Doctor’s orders were to throw away any eye makeup I used just to be safe so this one had to go!










Mac Fluidline- Blacktrack

Just like the Loreal mascara this one had to be sacrificed! Mac Fluidline has been my choice of liner for at least 6 years now and it’s still the best gel liner I’ve used.
