Empties #7

I always get excited if I finish up a product because that means I can buy something new!! Lately I finished many facial skin care products and I was really happy to test new things.

I want my empties to be as interesting as possible so let me know if you want to have more details or how I should review them.

Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum No. 1 Original

Rate: 5/5

Skinfood is a korean brand. I'm a huge fan of their scrubs, especially the black sugar scrub, this is why I decided to check out this serum. This serum was a big deal in 2013!
This product smells amazingly good and I really felt that it improved my skin texture and tone. It has a brightening and anti-wrinkle effect. The glass bottle contains 120ml and it lasted me for almost 1 year.

Victoria's Secret Sheer Love Fragrance Mist

Rate: 5/5

This fragrance mist is by far my absolute holy grail. It smells so good. Kind of a rosy flowery scent. Just amazing and it contains 250ml which lasts you for a really long time. I usually spray this over my chest before applying perfume.

Etude House Aloe Moistfull Soothing Cream

Rate: 4/5

This product was finished in no time. It worked great for my dry skin. Aloe vera is great for the skin. It calms, it hydrates, it has healing effect, you should really add aloe vera products to your skincare routine. The cream comes in a glass container of 50ml.
So fare it did a good job but I wasn't all too impressed about it.

Juju Cosmetics Aquamoist Moisture Washing Foam

Rate: 5/5

I love love love these cleanser that come already foamed out of the container! They feel so soft on my skin and still remove my entire makeup. These types of cleanser are great for dry and sensitive skin because they are not drying at all. Best part is that they are really inexpensive. Japan offers so many variation for such a small price. How I miss that country!! :(

Kose Cosmeport Softymo Super Point Make up Remover

Rate: 100/5

Eeehhh yes this product gets 100 points lol. I can't live without this makeup remover anymore. It removes my eye makeup completely without irritating. It's such a gentle cream and a small amount goes a long way. It says that this cream is as gentle as a tear drop.
I just add some on a cotton pad and put it over my eyes leaving it there for a couple of minutes and then I pull it downwards without rubbing.
The bottle contains 230ml. I'm so happy that I discovered this product.

Liese Hair Cocktail

Rate: 3/5

I'm not sure how to describe hair products. I've been using this product everytime after washing my hair. I just applied it all over my hair. I never got the feeling that this hair product actually made a change, but it did smell good.

TheBodyShop Indian Night Jasmine Body Lotion

Rate: 3/5

Boy the scent of this body lotion is strong. My room smelled after this lotion the entire night after I applied it. Maybe it was a little too strong for my taste. It was a really nice scent but sometimes it made me feel dizzy.

Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Skin Treatment

Rate: 5/5

I am absolutely in love with Missha products. They are amazing. The lady in a Missha store counter in Tokyo recommended this snail line to me and I purchased the entire thing. It was an amazing line. The packaging were so beautiful and it worked great on my skin. It felt moisturising and regenerating, just what I needed for my exhausted skin.

Etude House Aloe Moistfull Soothing Lotion

Rate: 4/5

This lotion was different from what I imagine a lotion to be. It was really watery and think lotion. It was really moisturising and refreshing. I liked how it felt on my skin. It worked out pretty well combined with the soothing cream mentioned earlier.
The glass bottle came in a size of 150ml.

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

Rate: 5/5

A couple of years ago I had a big obsession with Clinique. Unfortunately the 3-step system did some severe damage on my skin and I stopped using any Clinique products. Lately I've been starting to appreciate Clinique again.
This moisturising cream is doing a great job as my morning moisturiser. It's a really lightweight textured watery cream that absorbs quickly leaving my skin moisturised throughout the day.

Bourjois Concealer Stick

Rate: 2/5

This concealer was ok. I wasn't all too impressed about it. It's an oil-free concealer that hides dark circles and imperfections.

Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Essential Moisturizer

Lately I've been using way more moisturising products than before and my skin is thanking me for it.
My skin looks healthier, I have less breakouts and my skin looks smoother.
This moisturiser was amazing for wearing it during daytime, because it wasn't all too oily but more of a gel textured cream.

Dior Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Velvet Peony Extract - Dry or Sensitive Skin Review

This is probably my first high-end product review ever!! I decided to buy Dior skincare products just out of curiosity.

Product description

This cleanser is meant for dry skin or sensitive skin.

When I picked up this product I thought it came already out in a foamed form. Instead it came out in a cream form. I was really skeptical about that, because usually the cream textured cleanser were always really drying on my skin.

On the first try I realised that the cream is actually really watery and feels really soft on the skin. It's suppose to foam when in contact with water.
The cream has a really nice scent. It smells like a herbal tea, it's really relaxing.


The product comes in a size of 125 ml. Even thought you have to squeeze it out of the packaging, you still have enough control over the measurement. A small amount goes a long way, that's why it last for a couple of months.

How it works

After removing your eye makeup up with a specific remover, cleanse the rest of your face with this cleanser. Wet your face before applying the cream. I use an almond sized amount of product and apply it all over the face avoiding eye area. Massage and rinse with water. The cream barely foams up, it remains really water.

You might notice right away at how soft and gentle the cleanser is. It creates like a protective barrier on your skin that protects the skin from loosing it's moisture.

Rate: 4/5

The product itself is amazing!! It works great for dry skin, it cleanses deeply and leaves a soft sensation behind. Unfortunately this product is worth at least 5 japanese cleanser!!!
