Product empties #4

Hi guys!
I'm officially done with my 2nd year of university! (whoop whoop!!). Now with my 4 months worth of breaks, I'll be updating this blog regularly, so without further ado, here are my products that I've used up.

John Frieda Root Awakening
I believe they repackaged this, but I'm not sure if they have re-formuated it either. Regardless, this didn't really do anything for my hair. It didn't do anything beneficial to my hair nor make it worse. I would spray this in the roots of my hair before blow-drying. Will not repurchase

Kiehl's Activated Whitening Moisturizer
I bought this along with a few other products to see if it would lighten my acne scarring. It is a really good day moisturiser as it gives enough hydration without making the skin feeling oily, but when it comes to whitening, I didn't really see a difference in my skin, though with most products you have to stick to a whitening product religiously to see effects. I've got other light moisturisers to use up, so I won't be repurchasing this as a moisturiser any time soon. Still debating whether to get it again to notice any whitening effects.

Sally Hansen Instra-dry Anti-chip top coat
A great top coat for fast drying nails, but not a great anti-chi top coat. This claims to prevent chipping for 10 days. Even with this top coat, my nails still chip within the first 3 days (which is normal for me). I found with this, that as it becomes thick and gloopy, the effects of the drying time takes longer. I have repurchased this, but I'm still looking for an affordable fast drying top coat.

Innisfree JeJu Volcanic Pore Clay Mask
I bought this way back when I was in South Korea (early 2012) and it was only until recently that I finished using it up. The first few uses of this I didn't really see any effects, but as I use this more often, this has been a lifesaver! I would use this after long days of wearing make-up as well as when my skin is in bad condition and needs a 'pick me up'. It gets rid of oil and dirt in the pores which helps get rid of my current breakouts without making my skin feeling dry and dehydrated (with my more dry/combination skin). Definitely recommend this for oily and dry/acne prone skin types. I have already repurchased this in a bigger size.

Batiste Dry Shampoo - Original
This was my second can of this. I bought the Tony and Guy dry shampoo mainly because I couldn't find the Batiste dry shampoo at the shop I was in, and to be honest, the Tony and Guy Dry shampoo does not do what a dry shampoo does, so once I'm done with that, I'm going back to this product.

Loreal Elvive Night Elixir
I bought this a while back in search of a good leave in conditioner (which I gave up on that search). This claims to give nutrients to hair overnight, and claims that it can be used on dry and wet hair without weighing the hair down. I tried this on both dry and wet hair; it was quite heavy feeling on dry hair and only seemed to work with wet hair. The consistency is like a really thick gel, and I found it difficult to put it in my hair for it to absorb. I found 1 pump to not be enough because the product itself does not melt when I warm it with my hands, and with 2 pumps, it made my hair feel crunchy as when dried. Will not repurchase.

Miizon All in one Snail Repair Cream
I reviewed this product previously (check it out here). I wanted to use all of my other products before I buy it again, and within about a week without this product, my skin just doesn't feel the same. Will repurchase when I finish my other products.

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier cleansing Oil (green)
I mentioned this in my August Favourites and it still is. I bought the largest size right when I was done with this and I have to say, I'm loving it and will never go back to traditional cleansers and wipes for make-up removal. a few drops of this will get all of my make-up off (including waterproof mascara) in no more than 2 minutes. 

In my mission to finish all of my products so that I can venture out and try other things, I already have products lined up for my next empties, so look forward to that and many upcoming post within the next few months. Thanks for all of the support! ^_^
