Products I've Used Up & Reviews #3 - Skincare Empties

I hope every had a lovely Christmas with their loved ones and received everything they wished for! ^__^ Probably my last post for 2014 eeks >.<


Today i'll be writing a empties post~ My mother always nags at me for having "too many products" (oops). So for the last few months, I have been trying to use up my old products asap to reduce the amount there is (and quite frankly so that I can purchase new products xDD). I tried to keep this post mainly drugstore products, although their is the 1 or 2 higher end products. I have a lot more empties accumulated waiting for me to write more empties posts, which I will get round to soon! >.< 


minicell Tomato Stem Extract REVITAL PEELING GEL - £7.29

For full review click here* ^_^

Rating: 8/10
Would I recommend?: Definitely! ^^ removes dead cells effectively, more than other peeling gels I have tried - leave the skin soft and smooth.

Superdrug Vitamin E SPF 15 Radiance Eye Cream - £2.99

A simple eye cream with SPF15 - lightweight, slightly hydrates and absorbs quickly. A little goes a long way with this, if you apply too much then you'll end up with a white cast.

Rating: 5/10
Would I recommend?: If you're on a budget, looking for a eye cream with SPF protection to prevent fine lines/ wrinkles and not really concerned about hydration around the eye area then yes. 

Clearasil Ultra Overnight Lotion - £6.99

I believe that the Overnight line is now discontinued in the UK, I can't find it anywhere in stores anymore. A shame, since they were the only Clearasil products that worked in my opinion. This one is my 6th tube! It does a brilliant job - cleared up my skin in a small amount of time, I used it regularly even when my skin was clear to maintain it, also to prevent spots. It reduced the redness in my skin too. 

Rating: 10/10
Would I recommend?: Most definitely! - inexpensive and does a better job than some high street products I've tried. Reduces spots and redness effectively. 


Tea Tree Essential Oil 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil - £1

A standard tea tree oil, work just like the Body Shop one, except that its cheaper huehue. I like that this one is 100% tea tree oil, where as the Body shop one is only 15%. Great for healing up blemishes and prevent future ones!

Rating: 9/10
Would I recommend: Indeed!

Ginvera Green Tea Refreshing Brighten Up Day Cream SPF 15 - £22

For full review click here* ^_^

Rating: 7/10
Would I recommend?: Yes - Great product, especially for summer - refreshes, brightens and protects your skin from UV rays. Contains SPF15 - great for when you're in a rush, as you won't need to apply SPF cream or use on top to add a extra layer of proaction. ^^ Has a bonus sweet and relaxing green tea scent that is lovely. 

Lancôme Hydra Zen NeuroCalm Day Cream 

This one does not contain SPF15 - I wonder why Lancome has one Hydra Zen with SPF15 and one without. Anyway a great moisturiser; it has a lovely rose scent that is very calming. Its slightly thick, so its not really recommended for those with oily skin. Absorbs into the skin well and smoothes the skin instantly, leaving the skin feeling plumped and healthy. I really like using this moisturiser, especially after waking up with lack of sleep.

Rating: 8/10
Would I recommend?: Yes, smoothes and hydrates the skin really well. However the full size (50ml) is pricey - £39.


Avon Clear Skin Blackhead Clearing Daily Astringent - £4

I decided to purchase this, as its recommend to use astringent if you have oily skin. It has a strong alcohol scent, so if you have sensitive skin, stay away from this. It removes oils effectively, however I found that it does not clear blackheads, which was a disappointment. I like that it contains 2% salicylic acids, as it helps to unclog my pores.

Rating: 6.5/10
Would I recommend?: If you have super oily skin - yes, as this removed oils and residue well. If you're looking for a product to help clear blackheads then no. Also stay away from this if you has sensate skin, as it contains alcohol. 

Clearasil Ultra Overnight Wash - £4.99

Love this wash! This helps my skin whenever I have breakouts. I use it to cleanse my face before bed; it works beautifully along with the Overnight Lotion. It works just as well on its own too. The size of my spots were reduced, along with the redness. It usually clears spot(s) in around 5/6 nights.

Rating: 10/10
Would I recommend?: Most definitely! - great price and does the job fantastically.

Have you finished any products recently? ^^

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner Review

The Body Shop - £5 (Gift*)
Just like the Body Shop Skin Clearing Facial Wash this is a gift from my bestie Jess~ another thank you <3 xD. 

Description from bodyshop.co.uk : "This refreshing toner for blemish skin gives a beautifully matte, skins-free finish."

The toner is made of 2 components; it a has a green liquid and powder that is settled at the bottom of the bottle. You need to shake the bottle, so that both mix together before you use it. Then you simply apply the toner onto a cotton pad to use. 

You'll notice a strong tea tree oil and herbal alcohol scent once you open the bottle, I quite like it but some people may find it overwhelming. I found that this toner removed all traces of sebum, makeup and residue that sometimes my cleanser missed. I have oily skin; I noticed that the toner helped keep my skin matte for a 2/3 hours extra and slightly minified the size of my pores. However, I did not see any difference to my blackheads. After a few months of usage, it helped to prevent pimples from popping up. 

Overall this a great toner, its currently the best toner i've tried so far. I really enjoy using this toner, especially in the morning, as the scent and little stingles give a refreshing kick to start the morning. This is definitely one of the products that contributed to clearing my skin, so I will keep repurchasing it a few times until a find a better one. ^.~ I do recommend it to people with oily/blemish skin to, as it does a brilliant job of remove traces, leaving your skin feeling clean and matte for longer. However, I don't recommend this for people with sensitive skin, since it contains alcohol. It may be a bit harsh.

Rating: 9/10

Pros:
Removes all traces of excess sebum, makeup and residue 
Helps mattify skin for longer
Helps shrink pores
Does not dry out my skin
Helps prevent pimples

Cons:
Some people may find the strong scent overwhelming 
Contains alcohol, so not recommended for people with sensitive skin
Does not get rid of blackheads

Do you use a toner for your skin? ^^

Hello Kitty - Sexy Look Hyaluronic Acid Brightening and Moisturising Sheet Mask Review

Mannings HK$48
I brought these adorable mask back when I was in Hong Kong; it comes in a box with 5 sheets. I discarded the box due to luggage space, so apologies there are no photos. >.< 

The packaging is just too cute to not purchase, but its also too cute to use! To use the mask, you simply tear open packaging, apply the sheet onto your face for 20 minutes and then remove. The mask has a lot of essence, so it may drip. I personally like to squeeze out the extra essence from the mask into a container for later use. 

It has a sweet cotton/floral scent; which I find relaxing. Its quite strong so some people may find it overwhelming. The mask left my skin feeling plumped and hydrated even a few hours after use. However I didn't notice any "brightening" effect. Which is a downside, as I would of loved the product even more.

Rating: 6.5/10

Pros: 
  • Inexpensive
  • Kawaii packaging~
  • Loads of essence 
  • Hydrates skin really well
  • Does not leave a sticky feeling behind
  • Do not break out my skin
Cons:
  • Essence will drip
  • Did not see any brightening effect

Would I recommend?: If you're after hydration, then yes. If you're after whitening results, then no. The mask overall is a nice product, it hydrates the skin really well, however I was quite disappointed with the "brightening/whitening" as there technically was none lol. The product is a nice little treat to have, but its not must have product.

Have you tried any masks recently? ^^

minicell Tomato Stem Extract SLEEPING PACK Review

G Market £5.83 ($9.38)

My 100th post weeee~ Today i'll be reviewing another minicell product~ Sleeping packs are a must must for me during the colder seasons due to my skin breaking out and looking dull from lack of moisture. 

Product Description "Minicell Sleeping Pack is a sleeping pack that supplies ample moisture to rough skin that lacks moisture for smoother and softer skin. Various hydrators, such as sodium hyaluronic acid and polyglutamic acid, leave your skin supple, while organic aloe extracts and camomile extracts relieve stimulation to protect your skin from trouble. Also, tomato callus culture extracts and yeast fermented mistletoe extracts supply moisture and nutrition for healthier skin."


The packing is simple yet sleek. I quite like that it comes in a tube and note a jar, as its hygienic and does not require me to use a spatula. The sleeping pack is suitable for all skin types; it has a soft cotton scent that is calming - lovely scent to relax you before sleep. The consistency of the sleeping pack is thicker than other sleeping packs/mask I have tried - Laneige and Tony Moly's were a light gel, where as minicell's is a heavier slimly gel, I would say like products with snail slim filtrate in. It not does leave a sticky feeling or any residue behind. I feel that due to the thicker constancy, the moisturising factor is pretty good - my skin feels pumped and soft in the morning. I've also noticed that it evened up my skin tone, making my skin appear healthy, which I love. I would love this product even more if it had a whitening function. ^^


Rating: 8/10

Pros:
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Hygienic and convenient packaging - great for traveling
  • Hydrating
  • Lovely calming scent
  • Does not break you out, great for sensitive skin
Cons:
  • Difficult to get hands on
Would I recommend?: Indeed! ^^ - great affordable product that does the job

Do you have any sleeping packs you would like to recommend? Comment them down below~ ^^

Lancôme Hydra Zen Nuit NeuroCalm Night Cream Review



Who doesn't love free travel sized products/gifts along side your purchases? :')

I thought it would be the perfect time to try this cream due to my skin getting slightly drier due to winter. I really enjoy using this moisturiser as it has a lovely subtle rose scent, which gives off a luxury feel. The consistency of the cream is slightly thick, but it absorbs really well into the skin and does not leave a greasy feeling behind. I apply the cream after cleansing my skin, before going to bed. It hydrates and soothes my skin nicely, reducing the redness in my skin instantly after application. My skin looks and feels plump and healthy in morning, like I had good night sleep.

Rating: 9/10

Would I recommend?: Most certainly! A luxury product that does the job of hydrating and soothing skin fantastically! 

Pros: 
  • Great packaging 
  • Hydrates
  • Smoothes
  • Lovely rose scent
Cons:
  • Full size is pricey! £41 for 50ml

Super quick review due to procrastination (oops). Which moisturiser(s) have you been using or trying out recently? ^^

KDrama OTTD #1: My Lovely Girl 내겐 너무 사랑스러운 그녀 Yoon Se Na Inspired

It's been over one year already since I did a fashion post inspired by KPop/KDramas! >.< My sincere apologies. I'm going to try post more KPop or KDrama inspired fashion posts since makeup doesn't interest me as much nowadays. >.< 

I am currently watching My Lovely Girl; I adore the clothing in the drama to bits! Krystal Jung is already one of my fashion influence so of course I had to do a inspired look~ ^.^

KPop Diet #12: Lee-Hi's Pre-debut and Porridge Diet


It is not revealed as what Lee Hi ate for her diet, as she selected foods from a menu that her coach and nutritionist came up with. However she did follow a timetable of when of to eat. 

Timing
Breakfast: at 10am
Lunch: at 1pm
Dinner: at 4pm

If she was hungry throughout the day then the snacks she ate was - half sweet potato and 3 cherry tomatoes.

She did the diet along side 3 different exercises.
Her results at the end of diet - lost 6kg in total, more energy and feels stronger.

Although the foods are not revealed, I think she may have been on the same diet Akdong Musicians were during pre-debut. Check out KPop Diet #7 to see the diet, you can click here for the link! ^__^

On YG's twitter Lee Hi is also seen eating pumpkin porridge, which may be part of her diet or a porridge other people say.


Personally I like Lee Hi's diet, its very consistence and nutritious. I like the sound of the sweet potato since I have a sweet tooth. >.< I haven't tried pumpkin porridge before, but it sounds really nice. ^__^

What do you think of this diet? ^^

Garnier Nutrisse Crème - Deep Burgundy 4.26 Review


Superdrug £5.79


As mentioned in my Attack on Titan Makeup post; I was going to dye my hair again. The colour I opted out for is purple~ because vibrant hair colours is my thing~ xDD Although the dye states that it's a Deep Burgundy colour; I knew it would come out purple since my hair is bleached and this dye is purple base ( most burgundy dyes often have a red base). So the results will vary for people with natural/unbleached hair.

Content:

The box comes with the usual: Instruction leaflet, gloves, colour cream, developer and conditioner. (Apologies that I forgot to photograph the contents this time.)


Process:

I first mixed the colour cream and developer cream together to form the dye and then applied it my hair in sections. Once application was complete; I tied my hair into a bun, place my hair into a plastic bag and left it for 20 minutes. The dye contains shea butter and 3 nourishing oils (avocado, olive and blackcurrant). Which is great, as it does not dry out your hair during the dye procedure. It also has a strong fruity scent - lovely and covers up the smell of ammonia. The consistency of the dye is perfect! Not too runny or thick, easy and pleasant application. 



After 20 minutes, I finished my hair with shampoo and the conditioner that came with the dye. Pure love for the conditioner, it always nourishes my dry damaged hair and gives its shine - bringing my hair back to life. I wish they sold the conditioner separately too. There is a generous amount of conditioner that will last for good few weeks.


Results:


The dye first came out as deep rich violet colour, due to the nature of bleached hair absorbing in everything. The dye then faded to a blackcurrant colour, which matched the box. After a few more washes it faded to a pinky purple colour. I am expecting it to fade even more. Of course if you're using this dye on unbleached hair it won't fade as quickly or as light.

Indoor lighting:




Natural Sunlight:



Garnier Nutrisse dyes never fails to disappoint me. The colour outcome is so beautiful; many of my classmates have been complemented the colour too. ^^

Rating: 9/10

Pros:
  • Nourishing dye - does not dry/further damage the hair
  • Rich and vibrant colour
  • The dye and conditioner contains shea butter and nourishing oils
  • Easy to use
  • Even coverage
  • Comes with a generous conditioner
Cons:
  • Contains ammonia/ammonium hydroxide
Would I recommend?: Most definitely! - Beautiful colour, easy to use and affordable. I had no problems using the dye at all. The only con I could think of is that it contains ammonia, which is damaging to the hair. One of my all time favourite drugstore dyes. ^^

Have you switched your hair colour recently too? ^^

The Body Shop Skin Clearing Facial Wash Review

The Body Shop £5
I've been trying out new and old facial washes the last 2-3 months since I am still having little breakouts due to the colder weather. >.< I rediscovered The Body Shop Tea Tree Wash, which was gift from my bestie Jess - thank youuu. <3

Description: "This daily-use facial wash for blemish skin gives clearer-looking skin when used as part of a regular regime."

The first thing you'll notice when you use the product is the tea tree smell, which I personally like but  others may find it overwhelming or funny. The smell does go away once you wash the product off. The consistency of the product is great, not too thick or runny - easy to use. I've been using this wash for the last month; I like that it leaves my skin feeling clean without drying it. I have super oily and blemish skin, so it may dry out other skin types. The tea tree oil gives a cool and tingly feeling, which I love - especially in the mornings as its refreshing. With regular use, my breakouts cleared up quicker and my oils stayed at bay for extra a few hours. I can't say if it helped prevent pimples much, since I still had some pimples popping out here and there, but definitely less than before. Overall a great product that does the job. I would recommend this for people with oily and blemished skin~

Rating: 7/10

Pros:
  • Affordable 
  • Clears blemishes quicker
  • Reduces sebum
  • Does not dry out my skin
  • Great for daily use
Cons:
  • May dry out skin that is not oily/blemish
  • Strong smell may be overwhelming for some people

Have you rediscover any products recently? ^^

Products I've Used Up & Reviews #2 - Hair Product Empties


Clairol Herbal Essences - Break's Over Anti-Breakage Strengthening Conditioner 400ml

This is one of my favourite conditioners! I can't find it in stores anymore not sure whether this is discontinued or not. >.< "Beautiful Ends" may be the replacement. The conditioner scent is lovely - it has a soft honey and milk scent. It leaves your hair very soft, smooth and shiny. This condition hydrated my hair intensively and did protect my hair from breakage, as I have  very damaged hair from bleaching.

Rating: 10/10
Would I repurchase? - Definitely! IF I can find it in stores again that this. T^T
Would I recommend it? - Definitely! A inexpensive conditioner that does the job and what it claims beautifully? Why wouldn't recommend this beauty? ^__^

___________________________________________

Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light - Lightweight Nourishing Mask 200ml

Another one of my favourites! The mask hydrates and nourishes the hair very well, leaving my hair soft and shiny. I can't describe the scent but it smell very nice and like a professional salon product. The product itself is very lightweight. It does not weight my hair down, so after blow drying my hair, my hair is left feeling lightweight and fluffy. 

Rating: 10/10
Would I repurchase? - Definitely!
Would I recommend it? - Definitely! A inexpensive mask that nourishes your hair and leaves it soft and lightweight, why not? 

___________________________________________

Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light - Instant Damage Defence Conditioning Spray 150ml

The product is half oil and half liquid. This is great as it conditions the hair well and leaves it smelling great. Its lightweight and does not weight down the hair. I prefer this over leave in conditioners as my hands won't be cover in product. Its also great for mornings, especially when i'm in a rush. i can just spray this on and quickly leave.


Rating: 9/10
Would I repurchase? - Yes, if I can find it stores that is. >.<
Would I recommend it? - Yes, its great for those always in a rush in the mornings and feel that their hair is a bit dry and needs some nourishment.

___________________________________________

MESSHEAD Hair Therapy - Heat Protection Spray 250ml

I brought this from the 99p store for 50p! I was tempting to purchase it since the store was closing down and everything was 50p. Plus I like to try new products, so why not? The heat protection spray is nothing special, it does protect the hair from heat, however I feel that it doesn't protect it fully, especially not from high heats such as 230c. 


Rating: 5/10
Would I repurchase? - If it goes on sale for such a bargain price again.
Would I recommend it? - Yes and No. Yes if you're on a budget or don't want to spend much on haircare. This does the job. However no, if you use high heats like me. As your hair will not be fully protected.

___________________________________________

So...? Va Va Volume and So...? Fabulous Dry Shampoo 150ml

Read the full review by clicking here. ^_^

Rating: 9/10
Would I repurchase?: Indeed. ^^
Would I recommend?: 100% - affordable and lovely variety of scents to suit everyone. They also sell  these as a gift set. It comes with all 4 of the scents and in a cute travel size, a great christmas gift. ^^

___________________________________________

Attitude - Dry Shampoo 150ml

Another dry shampoo because I really greasy hair. >.< This one smells like raspberries! I love the scent. It's nothing special but does the job and absorbs the oils. However I find this one leaves your hair with quite a lot white residue. 

Rating: 5/10
Would I repurchase? - When i'm running low on money.
Would I recommend it? - Yes and no, yes if you're on a budget or don't want to spend much on haircare. This smells great and it does the job. No for those with dark hair, as you have to wait while before the white residue disappears.

___________________________________________

Schwarzkopf - Gliss Shine Tonic - Shimmering Shine & Repair Care 100ml

Read the full review by clicking here. ^_^

Rating: 6/10
Would I repurchase? - Maybe - for something a little extra. The shine it gives is really nice, however I tend to forget to spray it and often neglect the product. 
Would I recommend it? - The tonic is lightweight, it adds extra shine to your hair and makes it tangle less. If thats what you're looking for then yes I do recommend it to you.

KPWP + Rynspiration Beauty Tag~

Thank you to la beautiful Payton from KPop Party With Payton for tagging me~ ^.^ This is a collaborative tag Payton and Karyn created ^^ Sijakhae goya~ (lets start~)

1. What is a product that you've wanted for the longest time?

When I first read this question, nothing came to mind .__. After a few moments, I ended up with 5+ products xD. I'm terrible, i'm either not interested in anything or too much things. There is no inbetween. Is anyone else like this? >.<" Final products are Laneige's BB Cushion and Luna's Water Essence Founpact~ I haven't got round to trying any BB cushion yet even though there is massive hype, since some reviewers said that BB cushions don't offer high coverage... which I need >.<. Guess I need to try it for myself and see~ ^^


This was feature on Get It Beauty and it looked soooooo good!
2. If you had to wear only one foundation for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

Probably Bourjois's Healthy Mix Serum Foundation. Beautiful dewy finish, medium/high coverage and very long lasting. ^.^ Plus the extra skin benefits it offers for healthy skin~

Source: http://bestskinfoundation.com/
3. Your house is burning down, which product do you grab first?

If my house was burning down, I would be spraying that hose pipe around the place!! No fire is separating me from my bed, products, Macbook etc. xD But probably my Bourjois Healthy Mixed Serum Foundation (as mentioned above ^^) I'm all about good looking skin, although eyeliner is a big must for me too .__.

4. What's your latest "empty" product?

minicell Tomato Steam Extract REVITAL PEELING GEL (Review here~
Great product~ ^^ Really enjoyed using it. Hoping to do an empties post soon :D


5. What is a quote you live by?

I have quite a few quotes~ They're all about success because that is what I drive for. ^^

"A better day will come. Hard work will never betray you."
I do work very hard but I also procrastinate an ridiculous amount since I have lazy bug. So i'm when i'm slacking, that little quote reminds to hard work for my future. ^^

"Do it for the people that want to see you fail."
Believe it or not, there are many people that want me to fail... so whenever I feel like giving up, this is the quote I live by, to prove people that doubt me, wrong.

"I have to be successful because I love expensive sh*t."
Why am I so keen on becoming successful? The quote pretty much states 90% why xDD.

"Work so f*cking hard, that one day your signature becomes your autograph."
I used to live by this quote. I'll make an confession here - I used to want to be an KPop star, (I mean who wouldn't? xD) I even auditioned for YG. I still do want to be one, although its unlikely to happen. >.< Since I don't have much musical skills... (why didn't my parents force me to learn piano or something? xDD) But yeah, it's always at the back of my head. 

6. If you could buy makeup from one brand, which brand would you buy from?

Etude House! Even their stores are kawaii in general. ^^ Great quality makeup, affordable, cute packaging etc what is there not to love?


7. Which type of beauty products do you but the most of?

At the moment, lipsticks. xDD This happened ever since I watched You Who Came From The Stars. (It's like I never stop talking about this drama. xDD) But seriously, I even found dupes for Cheon Song Yi's lipsticks. (Post here ^^) Funny enough, I don't wear lipstick that often (due to laziness xD).

8. Is there one beauty product that you'd definitely recommend?

Makeup wise - Maybelline Pure Mineral BB Watergel (review here~) Its a BB cream/gel from the Asian Maybelline line. Its really cool! and has water droplets for moisture. ^^ 

Skincare wise - Mizon Trouble Clinic Acene Blemish Out Pink Spot (Review here~) one of my holy grail products! Great for those that have trouble with acne or pimples. ^^

9. How long have you been wearing makeup for?

I started experimenting with minimal makeup (e.g mascara and lipgloss, maybe eyeliner too) in year 5/6 (age 7/8 - terrible!) Then I stopped and started again in year 9 (age 13) because that was when all my nasty teenage hormones hit me, which led me to having acne. That led me to using foundation and concealer~ and it progressed from there. ^^

10. If you had to be any mythical creature, what would you be?

CANT DECIDE OMG. Maybe a UNICORNNNN~ FAIRYYYY~ Vampire? Ghoul? I kid I don't want to eat people. xDD A happy world with rainbows and butterflies etc then a Fairy~ ^^ they're so cute and off you have to love superpowers. The more dark side then a Vampire~ ^^

Thanks again to Payton for tagging me~ it was really fun ^.^

Attack On Titan / Shingeki no Kyojin Annie Leonhart Female Titan Make Up

Since its Halloween soon and I didn't want to waste my blonde hair (I'm going to dye it again this week! xDD #typicalme~) I did a cosplay makeup! :DD Dan dan dan dan~ The female titan (女型の巨人メイク) ^.^ I was too lazy to do the neck, but I think it still turned out great. ^^ It was really fun doing this but a complete pain in the ass to remove! >.<


I know my hair is too long for the Female Titan but apologies I am not cutting my hair! xD It needs to grow out the damage yo.

I haven't posted anything Japanese or anime related on my blog before, so this is my first~ ^^ Should I start Japanese culture too? O.o Anyway enjoy the camwhore selfies xDD


Incase if anyone is wondering~ For this look I used normal makeup; I didn't use face paint simply because I don't like the texture and cakey/powdery result. Plus its hard to get hold of in where I live. >.< So whilst everyone else used red face paint, I used red lipstick (Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in 250 Standout ^^). My first time doing so and i'll admit it was weird. xDDD On the other hand, I made good use of my resources~ ^_^ As for the black, I used 17's gel eyeliner which I will review soon and link here~ For the highlighted area I used Bourjois's Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer and MUA's white eyeliner. 





What are you guys going to dress up as for this year's Halloween? Let me know :')
