And we’re back with Part 2! I used up a good number of sample sachets and a few soaps in August – I used to like keeping little sachets to bring on holidays because they’re small and convenient, but these days I prefer bringing products that I’m used to along on trips because then I don’t have to worry about allergic reactions or stressing over breakouts! So I’ve been trying to use up all my sample sachets as fast as I can since I don’t bring them on holidays anymore.
♣ No idea as it’s too small, no opinions or have no impression of.
♥♥♥ Neutral/ok; will not repurchase.
♥♥♥♥ Liked; but may or may not repurchase.
♥♥♥♥♥ Holy grail; will repurchase or have repurchased.
11. Kose Sekkisei Facial Essence Soap ♥♥♥♥
I got this on my Japan trip last December and finally decided to dig it out from my stash to use. This is full size. I’m not usually a fan of soap, especially for the face, but I found myself really liking this. This foams up incredibly using the net included! I think this serves as a great deep cleanse; when I’m feeling extra oily I like to use this and my face feels so clean but it’s also not dry.
12. DHC Mild Soap ♣
13. Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar ♣
Also along the lines of facial soaps. But for these two tiny samples – I have to admit that I have absolutely no memory of what I thought about them. I might not even have used them myself – I do remember putting them in the little soap dish in the toilet but can’t remember actually using them.
14. Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask ♥♥♥♥
15. Sulwhasoo Luminature Essential Finisher ♥♥♥♥
I shall not gush too much about Sulwhasoo but I honestly like their products; not everything is amazing, but overall something somewhere always makes up for it – their service or packaging or scent.
16. Labstory B-Tox Lifting Cream ♣
This came with a “hang-yourself” contraption that’s supposed to help tighten your neckline but honestly I won’t try that. My mind keeps popping up gory images of the worst case scenarios. The cream is… not memorable. I got this from a Memebox; when I see products like these, I just wonder why I bought so much Memeboxes back then there are just so many more crap products than good in them.
17. Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-aging Moisturizer ♥♥♥
This was okay – but not a “miracle worker”. It’s moisturising and not too thick.
18. Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX ♥♥♥♥
19. Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream ♥♥♥♥
See above. Yes I am a Sulwhasoo fan. And ginseng! I love the smell of ginseng. There’s no way I can say anything bad about something that has both Sulwhasoo and Ginseng in it.
20. Etude House Moonlight in Spoon Blending Sleeping Cream (Evening Primrose) ♥♥
Honestly I don’t enjoy this. This was meant to be an overnight sleeping cream, but the cream felt so heavy and sticky on my skin that I had to remove it after half an hour – there was no way that I would sleep with this on because I feel like my skin is totally ‘blocked’ and unable to ‘breathe’.
This was a really quick and short empties post – I’ll be back soon with Part 3 and 4, filled with loads of skincare and beauty products!
