Beauty Empties 13.0 | June

Thursday 29 June 2017

It's the end of second quarter of 2017 and here I am reporting to you my lovely readers about the products that I've managed to finish for the past 3 months so first, let's go to skincare products.

The first of many repurchases; the huge 500ml Son&Park Beauty Water that I got from Seoul via personal shopper. This is a type of exfoliating toner as not only it tone my skin well, it also helps with getting rid of dead skin cells so you'll be needing to use cotton pads with this and swipe your skin across.

Next, the THE FACE SHOP The Smim Fermentation Concentrate Total Treatment along with its sisters the Toner and Emulsion. As I've started using the exfoliating toner, I'd also used these hydrating, anti-wrinkle first treatment product from the brand. As it came with the other two products from the same skincare line, I used them all together for better result. Overall, I do like them as they were indeed hydrating and making my skin felt smoother but I'm aiming to try the The Therapy skincare line as I really do like the samples that I've received recently.

As for the LANEIGE White Plus Renew Original Essence, that's the 5th bottle out of 6 that I have purchased and finished so far. At this point, I have to say that it's better to follow up this essence with hydrating essence, serum, ampoule or even sheet mask as my skin have been feeling rather dry these past months. As I've mentioned in my post here, I still got another bottle to go and then I'm done with the whole skincare line after more than 4 years.

Then there's the THE FACE SHOP Natural Sun Eco Oil-Cut Sun Cream SPF40 PA++; previous version of Natural Sun Eco No Shine Hydrating Sun Cream SPF40 PA+++ and I've finished this around the end of April or so. I've kind of stretched the usage over a year as I don't see any change in scent, colour nor texture. I'd definitely be purchasing the new one soon.

The Skinfood Rice Wash-Off Mask has become a staple in my skincare stash since 2013 and I'm pretty sure I'd be repurchasing this soon. It's a great physical scrub and is not harsh to my skin at all.

As for cleansers, I've finally finished that THE FACE SHOP Rice Water Bright Eye Makeup Remover and finally I can get a new cleanser to replace it! I don't like it at all as it stung my eyes many times. That LANEIGE White Plus Renew Bubble Cleanser is the second and last bottle that I've finished. Not going to repurchase at this point as I'm eyeing other cleanser from the brand to try next. Same goes with that LANEIGE Brightening Sparkling Water Whipping Cleanser; it's great as a second cleanser for double cleansing method but again, I want to try recently launched cleansers.

I've been using lots of sheet masks for the past 2 weeks as I've realised these are expiring next year. Of course, the above are my favourites especially those from Mediheal and Innisfree. I do have some more and surely be repurchasing more.

Next, let's go to body care products!

Yes, I know I'm obsessed with The Body Shop shower gels and my current favourite is Honey Mania. The amount of sweetness is just right for my liking. You guys probably noticed that I'm obsessed with anything made off Sakura so that Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist was indeed a favourite of mine among other fragrances in my perfume collection. As for that The Body Shop Almond Hand Cream was too creamy to my liking so I guess I won't be repurchasing it.

As for hair care, this time I've finished a set of shampoo and conditioner for Sunsilk Lively Clean and Fresh. These are my go-to when I'm between trying different shampoos. Forever repurchase! :D

I've been getting lots of powdered organic food from Melilea and along with those, I've gotten some body care products including that Lea Mind Hair Shampoo and its Conditioner although I've merely finished the shampoo because I've also been using that PureSmile Snail Treatment (Damaged Hair) that I've got as freebie from my Althea Korea purchase. I'm loving the scent for it and probably be getting the shampoo for it.

Finally, let's go to makeup department  section of my vanity.

I'm pretty sure Etude House and Urban Decay eye primers aren't finished yet but it's been over 6 months and the scents changed already so I won't be risking my peepers for using them. 

From drugstores. you guys know I've gotten some Kate Tokyo makeup last year and those eye liners were indeed so good when it comes to the intensity of the colour but for long-lastingness, I'd say they're both pretty average. Not going to repurchase and the same goes with that Maybelline eye liner. 

As for that Etude House Proof10 Gelquid Liner and Innisfree Powerproof Pen Liner, both are also average black eye liners as well that lasted like an hour on my oily lids.

So I guess that's all for now. I hope you enjoy reading this post! I'm happy to get these off my Empty bins. Yes, I have several. :D

Until next post, annyeong~

Beauty Obsession | Daily Sheet Masks

Friday 23 June 2017

Since last month, I've been adding more and more daily sheet masks to my beauty stash and the reason is I've been engaging with lots of #sheetmaskaddict while on Instagram. It didn't came to me by surprise as I've been hearing this sort of movement in skincare community for awhile now. There's even a tagline that goes with this in Seoul which is 1-Day-1-Pack and if you're not familiar with the terms, Pack here means mask in general that covers sheet masks, wash-off masks and whatnot. 

Along with a slight obsession towards these pretty sheet masks, I also can't help myself hoarding these super cute containers from my local Daiso stores. Frankly, I've been having several items in different sizes for different function within the same design for few years already but only recently I went back and get these rectangular ones from the store.

I really like its size as they can fit my sheet masks and for 2 containers, I can fit my 100 sheet masks in it. I have some from THE FACE SHOP, Innisfree, Etude House and my current favourite is Mediheal sheet masks. I also listed all of them on Excel spreadsheet to keep track each of it so I won't miss those expiring soon. 

Do you sheet mask daily? I do! In this hot and humid weather, you definitely need to take extra care for your skin let's say going to somewhere by taking public transport or visiting modelling agencies in Brisbane, pack a micellar water, toner and sheet mask for on-the-go hydration. Remember to apply your favourite sunscreen afterwards! Plumped skin is ALWAYS in. 

Beauty Talk | Hair Care Treatments You Can Do At Home

Friday 9 June 2017
Do you know that you can give a boost to your hair to keep it shiny, healthy and strong with one of the many effective spa treatments that you can do at home? I've been giving more attention to taking care of my hair especially the recent weeks as it's getting hotter and more humid than usual.

Some of the treatments are more like a mask that is applied to the scalp and the rest of the hair while others are an oil that is rubbed into the scalp before you rinse the hair.

Honey and Milk

One of the easy applications to the hair that will leave it soft and shiny is a combination of milk and honey. Mix a tablespoon of honey and a cup of milk, applying it from the scalp to the ends of the hair. Massage the mixture well before shampooing and rinsing.

Coconut Cream

This is an application that will leave your hair smelling like a tropical beach. There is a high amount of saturated fat in coconut, which is good for repairing any damage that has been done to the hair. All you need to do is combine fresh coconut and coconut oil in a blender. Rub the mixture between the hands to get it warm before you apply it to the scalp. Massage the head for five minutes before you cover the head with a warm towel. This will create a steam treatment for the scalp and the hair. Wash with warm water, and avoid using a blow dryer as this can dry out the hair.

Strawberry Treatment

If you're looking for an aromatic treatment for the hair, then you'll want to make a strawberry mask. Mix an egg yolk and a cup of fresh strawberries in a bowl. You also want to add a tablespoon of olive oil to the mixture. Massage the paste into the scalp and the rest of the hair, rinsing after 15 minutes.
