Beauty Empties 21.0 | June

Friday 28 June 2019

Here we are at another Empties post for the second quarter of this year! I'm so proud of myself for finishing bunch of products this time around so first, let's go to some skincare products.

As usual, I'm gonna start with cleansers! You guys know that I'm totally dedicated to double cleansing method, right? How about you?

For makeup remover, I have recently finished the most expensive cleansing oil I ever bought in my life! Hah! I'm not exaggerating as that 150ml bottle of that Shu Uemura Anti/Oxi+ Pollutant & Dullness Clarifying Cleansing Oil is retailing at RM143 in their boutique. I've got mine from Imago KK Times Square boutique and it was actually so much fun as I also got to try their makeup and some skincare products. Because of this product, it's actually the first time I ditched the double cleansing method as this oil cleanser is already enough to remove all kinds of makeup and impurities. I already purchased its newer sister product so I'll get this again next time.

For facial cleanser, I've finished the Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser I think around last month but I'll be honest, I don't think I'll be repurchasing as my skin is leaning towards drier side and this cleanser is indeed a high pH product so my skin become even drier because of that. I used it like a third for my face and finished the rest of it as my body cleanser. Love the verbena scent, though!

Finished the first bottle of that Bifesta Bright Up Foaming Whip and I'd be sure to repurchase this one at least as it's the gentlest foam I've ever tried.

I've also finished 2 deluxe samples for cleanser during a quick getaway. I've already finished a full-sized bottle of the LANEIGE Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil and as for the Huxley oil cleanser, I'm not that impressed so I guess I'm going to pass it.

Now, let's move on to first treatment products!

Finished my fourth bottle of THE FACE SHOP The Therapy First Serum and I still loving it and I've already repurchased another backup for it.

I've finished bunch of deluxe samples for Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum the new upgraded version and I like the new better as I feel it's more hydrating. I already opened a new full-sized bottle!

I've tried the Mamonde First Energy Serum deluxe sample but I don't feel it's hydrating enough for my skin so I guess I won't be getting full-sized of it.

I've also finished my first tub of Althea Waterful Green Bamboo Pads that I really like so I bought several tubs more as they're on sale. It's really convenient as it's pre-soaked and I just wipe the pad across my face after I'm out of the shower. The pads are so hydrating and soothing at the same time, I sometimes even use the pads as my point masks.

I've also finished my first bottle of Krave Kale-Lalu-yAHA 5.25% Glycolic Acid Treatment and I am loving this so much! I don't think I can go a week without using this in my evening routine as it really helps smoothing out my skin; my flaky dry patches around my cheeks and chin. I already bought another from a local reseller but man, I cannot wait for the brand to start shipping their products soon!

For toners, I've finished that Dr.G Hyper Brightening Toner but I don't really like it as I don't see any hydrating nor brightening effect so I'm not going to repurchase.

Used up some deluxe samples and you guys know I love that LANEIGE Cream Skin Refiner and I've bought full-sizes of that ISOI and Fresh rose toners because I want to compare them both so do stay tuned for that.

The only treatment (essence, serum or ampoule) skincare product that I've finished is that Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Essence and to me it's simply a basic hydrating essence. It does performs similarly to Mamonde Red Energy Recovery Serum but I decided to repurchase latter as it has thicker consistency (being a serum and all) instead of this. I do hope its boosting ampoule sister is better so I'm going to open that soon.


For moisturisers, I've finished the Althea Bare Essentials Fixer Cream - the first one out of the trio and I actually do like it although I'm not going to repurchase this day moisturiser anytime soon as I want to finish other opened products before coming back to this one.

I actually fell in love with that LANEIGE Water Bank cream so I've decided to buy the full-sized only to find the new upgraded Water Bank Hydro Cream at the store. Awesome!

As for that Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream, I absolutely love it! It's great for day skincare routine as it leaves me with ample of hydration for me to pile on matte or tone-up sunscreen on. Already bought the full-sized tub!

Finished my second tube of THE FACE SHOP Natural Sun Eco No Shine Hydrating Sun Cream and already opened my third! It's great for regular indoor days while that Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway is perfect for working days as it gives slight tone-up effect. I have already got my backups during last Althea sale.

Finished all these facial mists about the same time and the only one that I've repurchased in full-sized is that LANEIGE Water Bank but in its new Hydro and Moisture Mists. 

I had breakouts several times for the past few months and I use the THE FACE SHOP Dr. Belmeur Spot Plaster Band during daytime and that COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch for 
nighttime. Both work great and already repurchased.

For sleeping masks, I still have several of that LANEIGE White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Packs in my stash but I'd be sure to finish them soon. It works great but quite pricey to begin with so I haven't got myself the new upgraded White Dew version.

When it comes to lip care, I love lip sleeping mask the most but those from Petitfee is just average I'd say so I decided to repurchase that LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask again for the third time in Vanilla and Grapefruit!

I'm back and forth between Althea Petal Velvet Powder and Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder. I love both of them and and already repurchased like 2 years worth of them as Althea got sale recently and Innisfree released their annual limited edition powder that comes in 13 different designs and I. Got. Them. All. :D

I didn't actually finished the Innisfree No Sebum Blur Primer as I have decided to stick with my top sebum-controlling and pore-blurring primer from Benefit Cosmetics. So, thank you but I guess there's no Next one for me. 

Some of the samples that I've gone through while I'm in the office doing my midday skincare routine! Finally got myself the Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum by the way!

I guess that's all of it! I'll see you guys on my next Empties post! Annyeong~
