September Empties

Seems like most of my usual skin care products are all used up at the same time this month.


Origins United State Balancing Tonic is my regular toner. I find it is so important to use a good toner. I have switched to others and noticed more blemishes and breakouts. 

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate has got to be my third finished bottle. If you are looking to invest in a good serum for your night time skin care routine, highly highly recommend this one. You can see almost immediate results. Even though this is pricey, this last for quite a while and you only need a couple of drops for your entire face every night.

Philosphy Miracle Worker Overnight is one of the products I got from my TopBox prive boxes earlier this year. It is a very moisturizing night cream. Not very thick and quickly absorbed into my skin. May get this in full-sized once I use up all my night cream in my stash.

Used up another La Roche Posay Anthelios Fluid Sunscreen. My favorite face sunscreen of all times.

Another skin care product I am considering to add in my skin care routine is Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Targeting Serum. This comes in a White Lucent set I got last fall. I love their White Lucent anti-dark circle eye cream and this serum is not a disappointment either. It is an anti-aging serum which is light and perfect to use under makeup. 

Origins Ginzing Eye Cream is another staple product in my skin care routine. I love the salmon color of this eye cream and brightening my dull dark circles.

NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base is another alternative to my other favorite Urban Decay Primer Potion. This helps my eyeshadow to stay put all day long, even for the hot summer months. 



Can't have my monthly empties without some Bath and Body Works Candles! This month, I did quite good. Finished 5.


Bath and Body Works had some awesome sales a couple of months ago and I stocked up. 2 of my favorites are from their summer collection: Peach Cilantro Twist & Nectarine Green Tea. These are amazing summer scents. The other 3 are just ok to my taste: Pineapple Palm Grass, the Keys & Rainforest Sugar Cane. I thought it was pretty safe to get the Pineapple Palm Grass since I love pineapple scent. But with the Palm Grass, it is scented pretty strong and I am not too fond of it. 

What have you finished up this month? Leave me a link of your blog as I love to see what others finish.

  2. Always feels good to finish full sized skincare! That Origins eye cream for some reason didn't work well for me and made my under eyes have more fine lines, but I keep hearing people rave about it wonder if I had gotten a bad one :(

    1. sorry to hear you didn't like the Origins ginzing eye cream. I am surprised to hear you said it made your eyes look like more fine lines as I find the formula extremely creamy. It is always nice to finish up full sized skin products as they are pricey and I have spent my fair share in so many products that I barely finished :(

    1. I love fall scented candles, not so much about pumpkin but I love apple-scented ones.

  4. I want to try the LRP sunscreen! I've stocked up with Sofina and Elta MD ones so it would be a while, but still! ;)
    And I've enjoyed my bottle of the Origins toner, too.

    1. it sure is a miracle serum. I don't have much patience in seeing results from skin care products and this is one of those that you can see immediate results after one application.
