Product empties #8

Hi guys!

I'm trying to use up all of my products, well mainly to have the opportunity to try new products without abandoning my already open/currently using products. So here are my empties for the past month or so.

Etude House Heating Deep Clean Gel
 I bought this quite a while back (maybe I should have thrown this away earlier because it's past its recommended time of use...). Regardless this was a great buy! It removes most of the blackheads and whiteheads on the nose. It does give off a bit of heat when you first apply it, but after about 5 seconds the heating effect goes away. I use this on my brother as well (and he has absolutely the craziest amount of crap on his nose) and while I do this on him, you can literally see all of the crap coming out of the pores. So gross, yet so satisfying! Great product and will definitely repurchase if I ever go back to South Korea.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra
 This is pretty much a moisturiser which is for ultra sensitive skin, as it is free of preservatives, parabens, fragrance, alcohol, colours and lanolin. I bought this during a period where my skin was just crazy to the point where just washing my face with a basic cleanser was irritating my face, and even my Cetaphil moisturiser was not doing justice. This product did wonders for my face! It gave my skin hydration without irritating my face and even now when it's transitioning to winter, I have not had a dry patch on my skin (while I would have dry patches during this season, like no tomorrow...). Great product for everyone to try. Have already repurchased.

Bourjoirs Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer
 I use this mainly to conceal my pigmentation from previous acne. It does a decent job on covering without looking to cakey and isn't too drying on the skin. Out of all of the concealers, I find that this is the closest match to my skin tone, though it is still a little too dark. I haven't found a better concealer to do the job of covering all the stuff I want to cover, so until then I shall continue to purchase this until I find a better product.

St Ives Green Tea Scrub
 One word to describe this product, perfection. It gets rid of all the dead skin on my face leaving it baby butt smooth and doesn't irritate my skin too much. It also contains 1% salicylic acid to prevent acne (though I don't think it actually does anything for my breakouts). It's the most finest scrub I've found so far that's affordable and does the best at exfoliating. Definitely recommend and have already got a backup!

Essence Studio Nails Ultra Strong Nail Hardener
 I needed a base coat to, 1. prevent my nails from being stained by nail polish, and 2. make my nails stronger. For those that wear nail polish on a regular basis, you know how damaging it is on the nails. I've been suffering with extremely brittle nails to the point where they were splitting and not breaking, and had the texture like a really hard of beef jurkey (yea that's pretty bad). Ever since using this, I have not had that problem! and this was pretty cheap (under $4). I like this better than the Sally Hansen one (the one in the green bottle) because this actually does the job. Though one problem I found was that this thickens up and dries up in the bottle really quickly, despite that, I used pretty much all of it! Will repurchase!

Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions Cleansing Foam
 I believe this is my second bottle, though I don't believe I mentioned this in previous empties. I wanted to use a product that had a pump which creates the foam, instead of creating the foam yourself. And I found that my skin isn't so irritated when I used this. I've been seeing that people have been saying that there is no point in using a salicylic acid face wash as it doesn't have time to do it's job, though I find this product to prevent some acne from coming up. If you have mild acne and need a new face wash, try this one out! Have already repurchased.


  1. I absolutely love the Essence nail hardener as well, it makes my nails grow so fast :)


  2. I'm intrigued to try the Bourjois concealer as they have a natural ingredient. Thanks for sharing!


  3. I love reading empties posts! Good job finishing all those skin care products! I recently uploaded my may empties too :)
