March Empties and Chuckers


  1. Shiseido Super Corrective Serum - I am no longer as impressed as I used to be with this serum. I still have one more backup, but I won't be repurchasing after that.
  2. Shiseido Revital Cleansing Foam (sample) - A good foaming cleanser that does not leave skin feeling dry, but not good enough to entice me to purchase the full-size version.
  3. Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (sample) - Overrated and overpriced, I'm sticking to the cheaper Hada Labo Olive Oil Cleanser.
  4. Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil - I used this so intermittently that I don't know if it was effective on dark spots and scars. It felt very greasy when I apply this at night, but my skin didn't feel moisturised enough by morning.
  5. Trilogy Cream Cleanser - Very greasy, hard to rinse off, and does seem to clean my face even when used with my Clarisonic.
  6. Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising Lotion - I love this. I transferred this to a pump bottle for ease of use. It's more a toner/softener, and not so much a moisturiser. I use it with a cotton pad, and it feels refreshing, yet moisturising. I have a couple more Hada Labo lotions to finish up, but I'm sure I'll repurchase this eventually.
  7. Skin Doctors Supermoist 24hr Hydrating Face Moisturiser - I don't get this. It wasn't moisturising enough and it's got shimmers moisturisers. And I really dislike the jar packaging.
  8. Garnier Clean Sensitive Gentle Eye Makeup Remover - For some reason, I didn't enjoy this bottle as much as the previous one. But I am enjoying the new bottle I'm using. I would repurchase, but only when I'm running out. Note that I use a non-waterproof mascara, I don't think this will work on waterproof mascara.
  9. Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray - It was ok, but I prefer the Hada Labo Hydrating Mist Spray. I do like the reusable spray bottle.
  10. Cover Girl Natureluxe Water Resistant Mascara - My HG mascara (along with a similar Max Factor and Face of Australia one) -- doesn't smudge, holds a curl, natural-looking thickness and length, super easy to remove. I need to use up all my other mascaras so I can purchase more of this.
  11. Escada EDP sample - I really liked this one. It's not an unusual scent though and I am still looking for my HG signature scent.
  12. Escada Into The Blue EDP sample - Nice and summery. Again not so unusual that I would purchase a full-size bottle.
  13. Jessica Simpson Fancy Love EDP sample - Not bad, but it's a celebrity scent.
  14. Body Crystal Botanica Crystal Roll-On Deodorant - Not as good as an actual crystal alum.
  15. Daiso Detergent For Puff & Sponge - This is quite good for cleaning brushes, though a little bit harsh. I'm using a stash of freebie shampoos to clean my brushes at the moment, but I may need more of this as those don't seem to thoroughly clean my brushes
  1. Lily Loves Pearl Hydrating Botanical Toner - Nicely packaged, but smells like gin & tonic and quite harsh on my skin.
  2. Ginvera Marvel Gel Emollient & Exfoliating Gel - This was really good on my 20s skin, but doesn't seem to work with my 30s skin. Plus it's old, very old.
  3. Lee Stafford Dry Shampoo - I find dry shampoos more trouble than shampooing my hair everyday. Plus I can't stand the super strong scent.
