Product Empties as of October 2013 with Mini Reviews

12:33:00 PM

It's time for another product empties round up, yay! It just feels great to actually finish and use up a lot products rather than have them piled up in my stash, gathering dust.

Products I used up

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream - I got this travel sized moisturizer for free when I purchased the biggest bottle of Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser a while back. I love using this on days that my skin really feels dry and dehydrated. It is very moisturizing and my face stays hydrated for more than 5 hours. This cream type moisturizer is thick but not sticky at all. It is unscented and doesn't sting.

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - I got two sample sizes of the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm from my friend last year and I have been using it since then. I already used up my two travel sized tubes and I absolutely love this stuff. It is actually one of my HG products, so I already bought the full sized one. It actually does what it claims to do, which is to brighten and tighten your face in a flash. Will do an in depth review about this soon.

Ziaja Moisturizing Eye Make-up Remover - I bought this at Beauty Bar for only 200 pesos. It's a good water based face makeup remover but could not remove any of my mascara at all. You can read my full review HERE.

Maybelline Make Up Remover - This is the very first makeup remover I ever tried when I was just starting to play with makeup and repurchased it for 2 years before I decided to try out other makeup removers available locally.  I recently bought this small bottle when I ran out of makeup removers. It's very affordable, effectively removes waterproof makeup, has a mild scent and does not sting my eye. I only stopped using this because I felt more comfortable using water based makeup removers.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula for Dry, Itchy Skin Soothing Oil - I used this when I was still pregnant with my baby Ehron. I am really happy with this product because it really works. It made my belly itch-free. I stopped scratching my belly when I started applying this oil every after bath. Definitely something that I would recommend for expecting moms. By the way, I bought this at Rustan's Ayala Center Cebu for 495 pesos.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick - I think this is the second time I included this product on my empties post.  This is the last piece of backup I have for this product. I don't see it in the shelves anymore so I don't know where else to find it. This effectively lightens scars and blemishes. I sometimes use this as a face moisturizer and it really works. I love this coz it's handy and very easy to carry around. I bought it at Rustan's for only 175 pesos.

Human Nature Natural Feminine Wash in Chamomile Cool - This is my holy grail feminine wash! I've tried a lot of feminine wash available in the market but only the Human Nature Feminine wash worked for me. I really love the Chamomile Cool variant because it effectively cleans and removes itchiness. In addition to that, this 50ml bottle only costs 49.75 pesos which will last for about 3 months depending on how often you use it. I highly recommend this.

Bath and Body Works Body Lotion in White Citrus - I received this as a gift last Christmas and only started using it early this year. This lotion is moisturizing, not sticky nor greasy, and easily gets absorbed on skin. If you love citrus scents, you will definitely dig this.

Etude House Petit Bijou Deodorant Spray - I got this last year during the 20% off sale at Etude House. I bought this because of the fresh citrus scent. Unfortunately, this darkened my underarm. I won't recommend this, and it has been discontinued already.

Lastly, the Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara - This is not a full sized mascara so I used it up in just a few months. You can read my full review HERE.

Until next time.
