Empties #22: June 2015 – Part 1


I’m back with another empties post! It’s gonna be a quick one today – I “lost” the close-up photos of the items, but I’ve already packed them into the kitchen garbage… and no way am I digging them out! So this sole surviving photo will do! Let’s take look at what’s in Part 1 of June’s empties!

Empties #21: May 2015 – Part 2


Now to get on quickly to Part 2 of my May’s empties – otherwise by the time I’m done with this it’ll be time for June’s empties! My keyboard has died and revived with a factory reset once more after I put up Part 1 of the empties post – I officially hate computers now and I need to figure out a new permanent fix for it. Meanwhile, let’s see what else is in my empties for this month!

Midweek Peek #23: I Spy Some Eye Creams


A quick midweek peek at the eye creams that I’m using at the moment – it’s a little crazy but I currently have 6 of them in rotation! I received a lot of them from a magazine contest and they’re expiring by the end of this year, so I’m trying to use them all up before then!

1. Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for Eyes
This was from a beauty box; this feels pretty nice – it’s quite light, sinks in fairly quickly and hydrating.

2. For Beloved One Polypeptide DNA Resilience Lift Eye Cream
This was one of gifts from the contest. I’m not a big fan because it’s quite thick and probably more suitable for an older audience. It hasn’t given me problems but I’ve decided to use on my neck instead.

3. Lancome Renergie Yeux Multi-lift
I like the eye cream; very lightweight and feels cooling on the eyes, and hydrating. I don’t use the concealer attached to it much though as it’s a really fair colour and honestly I don’t like the concept.

4. b.seen i’m wrinkle eraser
Another contest gift – I like the funky packaging. The product is okay – but also quite thick and targeted towards older age group. It does temporarily smooth out the skin while it’s on.

5. YSL Forever Youth Liberator Eye Zone Serum
6. L’Oreal Youth Code Rejuvenating Eye Essence
Two very liquid eye serum/essences. They’re very lightweight but I’m too lazy to use them beneath the eye creams consistently so I haven’t used them enough to really form an opinion.

So that’s the eye creams that I’m currently using! It’s really hard for me to tell if the eye creams/serums work because I don’t have any eye wrinkles… and I don’t know if the fact that I don’t have wrinkles is because the creams/serums are working! But I guess prevention is always better than cure!

Have you tried any of them?

Empties #17: January 2015 – Part 1


It’s the first empties post of 2015! Oh boy, am I excited! Now that I’m on a beauty budget, I’ve been focusing on using up what I already have this month, rather than buying more new items. I always neglect the foil packs – even on holidays, I don’t bring them along though they would be more convenient as I like to carry little bottles of skincare that I know will work well on me, so this month I’ve been trying to dwindle my stash of sample foil packs down.

Empties #14: October 2014 – Part 2


Hello! Welcome to Part 2 of going through my beauty trash in October! Writing about empties is actually pretty draining – because I do put in the time and energy to try to review as much as I can – that means trying to remember exactly what I felt about the product and then writing about it. A lot of times I don’t even remember because I wasn’t paying attention – and when it’s a tiny sample size, before you know it it’s used up and you have absolutely no clue what it did. Anyway, let’s get cracking on and see what I can remember about the rest of this October’s empties!
