Nexus ultimate moisture conditioner is my third finished bottle. I really love how it makes my hair super soft and moisturized. As I blow dry and straighten my hair often enough, I need extra help to restore moisture.

Using hair heat protectant is also a mush for me when I heat style my hair. Tresemme is my go-to brand and this keratin smooth version is my alternative to my original version. To me, it works the same. Just the scent is a bit different.

Bioderma Sensibio is my trusted makeup remover. I use it mostly to clean up "mess-up" when I apply makeup. As it doesn't require rinsing nor  leave an oily residue, I use it to clean up my winged lines or if I use too much eyeshadow, I dab a bit of Sensibio on a q-tip and apply on my eyelid. 

Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil is quite pricey for a cleansing oil. But this bottle last me for a while and you only need a tiny bit to remove makeup. Will definitely re-purchase.

I am loving the bubble bath from Bath & Body Works. I usually pair it together with a more moisturizing bubble oil to give the perfect bubble and moisture balance to have the perfect bubble bath.

Few staples I finished this month are: L'oreal Telescopic Extension Waterproof Mascara, Lioele Auto Brow and Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner. I have re-purchased the former 2 already but as much as I love the Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner, don't think I will get another one. I love how this applies and the color pay off. Price is awesome for such high quality. What I don't like is you have to twist up enough product to get it out. It is quite soft and big chunks of it always breaks off. One lip liner usually me only 2 months.

Algenist Retinol Firming and Lifting Serum is my first Algenist skin care product. I got this from my Sephora 500-perk. I can't say whether I like it or not to purchase it in full-sized. It just does ok for me.

Benefit Gimme Brow is such a great product for easy brow. It has enough tint and also the same time keep your brow hair in place.

Last but not least is Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint 3-Wick Candle. This is from their Christmas collection. I am a big fan of the their Twisted peppermint products and hopefully this will come back this holiday season.

What have you finished up this month?

  2. Another impressive empties post!
    I had the Nexus shampoo and conditioner set, but ended up giving it away. For some reason it weighed down my hair a bit although the smoothing effect was really great. I loved the smell..so I was a bit sad. ;-/

  4. That's great you used up so many full size products! I've been working hard on my deluxe samples still. I have the Benefit Gimme Brow and working my way through, have been using it a few months it's still going strong. Bioderma is a staple for me as well!

    1. My Benefit Gimme Brow lasted me a longgggggg time. I wasn't really into it when I first got it but when I feel lazy, I find it so great and easy to use.

  5. I love the Bioderma cleansing water too! =D I am currently loving this Banila Co. cleansing balm which works much more effective and its very gentle too! It's a Korean brand so try it if you manage to get your hands on it ^^

    1. I have never tried anything from Banila and want to so badly as I heard so many raved products from the brand. Next time I go to Toronto(there are so many Asian shopping malls) and I will have to see if they carry Banila Co. Thanks for the suggestion!

  6. I tried a sample of the Bioderma Sensibio and it worked wonderfully at removing makeup, I was quite impressed. I then bought the one for oily/combo skin, but I only used it for makeup removal so I think the Sensibio one was better for that.

    1. We're lucky that Bioderma is readily available in Canada. Such a great makeup remover, especially when I make mistakes on eyeliners and just dip a q-tip into it and it removes precisely. I always buy the pink bottle one. Is it the one for oily/combo skin?

    2. The one for oily/combo skin is the green bottle... or blue? I think it's the green one.
