DECEMBER 2016 EMPTIES | HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017 EVERYONE!
MAY THE NEW YEAR BRING A LOT OF JOY, HAPPINESS AND PROSPERITY ^-^

It is just so appropriate to post my December 2016 empties at this time. I've emptied a total of 11 products. Its been awhile since I shared an empties post on this blog, I've been doing it on my IG because I can't really make time to blog about it.


Part 1: From my bathroom

My 'bathroom' items that I emptied this month.

1) Boomdeahdah Mild Cleansing Oil (REVIEW): I don't really emptied this because it broke me out. I only used it a few times and then I used it to clean my makeup brushes.
Not going to purchase.

2) Cospatch (from Eyelab Cosmetics) Z Cleansing Mud: contains zinc mud, hence the 'Z' to remove sebum and making skin soft, so basically this cleanser is targeted towards oily skin people like me. The cleanser paste is thick, not runny, light green in colour and smells of green tea! I love smelling it when I foamed it with my hands. it can be used as a mask pack at the same time where you leave it on for 1 or 2 minutes. I did feel that it helped with removing sebum and making skin soft and it doesn't make my face feel stripped, but thats it. I don't really think that it removes leftover makeup well that didn't pick up by my first cleanser because I noticed that my makeup showed in cotton pads, this rarely happen when I was using the cleanser but it happened. In terms of acne, it didn't really help with soothing nor preventing them. This cleanser did not break me out but I won't be purchasing since its results are not that great for me, it doesn't remove leftover makeup well too.
Not going to purchase.

3) Garnier Pure Active Acne & Oil Clearing Scrub: I picked this just because it is really cheap (about BND 2) and I was in need of a scrub. It is a foam type of scrub where you get foam + scrubbing bits in one. I thought that it would came as in a literally scrub granule form but it is not. To use this after foam cleansing feels harsh, it feels like I cleansed my face with a foam cleanser twice, eeeekkkk. It may contain the scrubbing bits but I don't really feel it, the foam stands out more than the scrub. It doesn't do anything to my acne and basically did nothing. It is a terrible dud and might have a high pH. Since it is a foam + scrub in one, it would be better to cleanse the face one time with this and not twice like cleanser and then this scrub. Mahn I cannot imagine the increase of pH level on my face. I totally won't repurchase this shit ever. I am going to find a good standalone face scrub (face scrub without foam).
Not going to repurchase.

4) Etude House AC Clinic Daily Acne Foam Cleanser: this was wrongly sent to me by BBCosmetic, my order was sent the wrong product and I am glad BBCosmetic allowed me to keep it rather than returning it back. I used this foam cleanser in 2013~2014 and it really really really really helped with reducing acne and clearing up my face! This was even my favorite face cleanser to combat acne. I was happy when I get to use this again but when I used this back again in 2016, it broke me out >< I am guessing my skin's something/whatever must've gotten weaker or my skin type(?) has totally changed? I don't know. I only used it a few times after finding out that it irritates my skin, I used the remaining on my body and it did help with clearing my backne. Its too bad that I broke out from using it now. Won't repurchase, totally not my loss because there are still many good acne fighting cleansers out there.
Not going to repurchase.

5) Pudding Salon Bonding Hair Pack: I received this from BBCosmetic as an extra gift in my Blogger's package. It is a hair conditioner, I had no idea at first that it is a hair conditioner because it is not mentioned on the packaging and I barely can find any reviews about it online. This smells fruity~ the smell is light but after using it, it can fill the whole room with its scent, haha. It smells nice and makes my hair soft. I'd love find and purchase this one.
Would purchase.


Part 2: The Moisturizers?

6) Mirirang Repair Cream (REVIEW): moisturizing, hydrating, nourishing but not really rich. Just read my review, lazy to type so long haha.
Not going to purchase.

7) Mirirang Recovery Spray Toner: review link is the same as the Mirirang cream above. Just read my review too.
Not going to purchase.

8) Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol (REVIEW): a waste of my money sigh. Unfortunately didn't work for me just like what it did to most people.
Won't repurchase.


Part 3: Makeup

9) Avon Simply Pretty Shine No More Dual Powder Foundation SPF19 in Almond (NOOB REVIEW): yes this mattifies my face, it lasted me the whole day providing if I am not sweating. I was amazed that it controlled my oiliness very well. This is actually a declutter, I still have alot of it left sadly. I stopped using it after noticing that it started to break me out. Maybe its because that its longevity has expired. Its coverage is decent too.
Might repurchase but I am looking at other face powders.

10) ELF Cosmetics Cream Eyeliner: I got mine in brown colour, I think the shade name is coffee. It is pigmented and smooth. It comes with a brush too(and it is lost), the brush quality was quite good. This product has expired actually, it became dry that it is not smooth anymore :( this too I still have alot left. its longevity is short, I think it was 4~6 months. If you have this you have to use it diligently and quickly. This was one of the best eyeliners I've tried. It doesn't budge at all once it sets and it lasts long, so yeah it is smudge-proof on my not so oily lids. It is not really waterproof though but it is good enough because it lasts me long.
I bought it for only BND 9, might repurchase but I'll make sure to use it diligently before it dried up.

11) Too Cool For School Artclass by Rodin Shading Kit (REVIEW): THIS IS THE SADDEST DECLUTTER EVER. This is my favorite makeup item, I was heartbroken after finding out that it broke into pieces in my makeup bag :( I don't know how it happened, I must've carelessly handling the bag or something. So so sad. This shading kit is light, natural looking and not over the top, exactly how I like my 'contour' to be.
DEFINITELY WILL REPURCHASE.

So yeah thats all from me~ only 3 possible repurchases out of 11. Is there anything that you would like to try in this empties section?

I posted a gratitude post previously, check it out if you want to *shy monkey emoji*

Thank you for reading~ and again, have a Happy New Year 2017!!!!! I can hear the fireworks now!!

*Main product below is provided to me by BB Cosmetic. My review do not affect the fact that product is sponsored. April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that? Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushio…

[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm

Whiteheads, blackheads and pores are such a disturbance to the face! and their developments are just inevitable! If you are looking for a mild product that can improve the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, continue reading down below! Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm I got the product from a local seller on Instagram. Her IG is naturecarebeauty The quoted actual price by the seller was $12. But I got it for $9 because there was a flash sale! It is stated that the images/texts on the product is printed with soy ink. I find it amusing because I never knew that soy ink can be used for printing! The ink seems to have a good quality too. The box is like made out of recycled paper. I really like the save-the-environment concept. English description, instructions and ingredients of the product. How I wish I can translate this part for you guys At first, I thought the product is a makeup base to cover the pores...but it isn't. It is a massage balm to extract the whitehea…

[REVIEW] COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol

Haven't had the wifi for a week so I didn't get to write a blog post. I feel so lifeless and dead without wifi considering that I have nothing much to do while on a semester break. Wifi is my source of entertainment(and life). I am that kind of person who chooses to bring Wifi over water if I were to strand in an Island.
Now lets get going with one of the most used, raved and recommended COSRX product; COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Review
This product contains Natural BHA to control oil while helping to clear recurring pimples. A non-drying acne treatment solution for sensitive skin.
It is one of the recommended products at Jolse since it has alot of positive reviews. it is priced at USD15.30 currently at Jolse, for a 100ml product, the price is not bad. I bought this when I thought that I needed an acne-fighting toner/active product when my skin is breaking out and since I've seen alot of the Asian Beauty people on Instagram implementing this product in their skin…
