I think it’s that time of year again. I usually use up more skincare around this time, then I’d replenish and most will be gone 6 months or a year later. So, don’t be surprised to see lots of skincare here. I just want to list down some things I used up, because I’m keeping track of what I have consumed, what I liked and what I didn’t.
The picture looks rather crappy because it is. Took it when it was really dark, and those I took with flash just looked even crappier. It was one of those lazy days – I didn’t set up proper lighting >_< Anyway, I’d like to talk about those serums first. I’m a serum junkie because they’re potent and most of them work. I love the Diorsnow Anti Spot Serum and also the Guerlain P.E.A.R.L.. The Clarins one, well, compared to the other two, isn’t much of a love. More of just a like. I have reviewed them before, so please click on the links if you wish to know more.
I recently talked about that Nuxe skincare set, and also the Murad samples, so I won’t say much. I’ve enjoyed the Vichy Normaderm foam cleanser a lot and I’m sad that I can’t replenish. I bought this when I was in Singapore, so the next time I’m there, I’d stock up. Oh Vichy, why did you leave?
There are only 2 makeup items here and they are the Benefit Powderflage and MAC False Lashes mascara. I’ve had that MAC mascara for ages but never used it much. Then after using it for about 2 weeks, my eyes started to itch. That taught me to use my mascaras ‘fresh’ rather than just saving them for later. My bad. I’m going to use those older ones I haven’t opened and the newer ones for later.
I’m happy to see so many empty bottles, but I’m also feeling the pinch because I had to buy new serums. I am on a mission to use up a couple of moisturizers, so hopefully I’ll be able to include them in the next empties post… you know, just so I could say “See? I actually use the stuff I have. I don’t just hoard”.
