January Empties

Finished a few products this month and some of them are my staples.

  1. Origins United State Balancing Toner
  2. Dermaglow Lash Enhancer
  3. Barefoot Venus Macadamia Oil Hand Cream
  4. La Roche Posay Anthelios
  5. L'occitane Amande Shower Oil
  6. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum
  7. GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment
  8. Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob
  9. Benefit Porefessionl
  10. Bath & Body Works Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding 3-Wick Candle

Only went through one 3-wick candle this month as I  was visiting my family in Toronto for a good part of the month. This Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding one is one of my favorite baked goods collection from Bath and Body Works. Really makes my house smell like fresh banana bread.

Have been using the Origins United State Balancing Toner for a while. I try switching to other brands but every time I start using other ones, my skin doesn't agree with it and little bumps start to appear within 3 days and I quickly switch back to my staple.

Dermaglow Lash Enhancer really helps my lashes become fuller and slightly longer. If you haven't tried any lash enhancer, you would have to be patient as most enhancers really take a long time for you to see the effects. I apply this for consistently 3 months and I started to see results after my first month of use.

I got Barefoot Venus Macadamia Oil hand cream in my TopBox a few months ago. It smell amazing and it is super-moisturizing. I would definitely re-purchase this.

La Roche Posay Anthelios & Benefit Porefessional Primer are my staples. I don't think I want to switch to others since they are so awesome.

GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment is a decent hydrating mask. But it is a bit too thick in texture for my preference. You really have to leave it on for a good 5 to 6 hours to see the full results. Leave it on for a 15-20 mins doesn't do much for my skin. For the price point, I don't think I would re-purchase as I have other more affordable alternatives(see my post for a comparison of different hydrating treatments)

So happy to discover Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob. I wasn't a big fan of Rimmel lip product before(bad experience with Apocalips) but this lip liner changed my view. This lip liner is so versatile and it is just the perfect your lip but better shade.

Two sample sized products finished: Estee Lauder Night Repair Eye Serum & L'occitane Amande Shower Oil. I got the Estee Lauder eye serum with my beauty purchase at the Bay. I apply this at night time and it is not rich enough for me at night. L'occitane Amande Shower oil smell divine. It is not as moisturizing as I have expected as I thought shower oil usually do. 

Have you tried any of these products?
