March 2014 Empties
More empties!

Shiseido Facial Cotton

It’s true what they say, that once you try this, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without it in the first place. These facial cottons are supremely soft and feel heavenly. I have heard of some people cutting them in half to get more use out of them. I didn’t do that, and 165 sheets lasted me nearly 3 months (one in the morning, one at night). Definitely a repurchase.

Neutrogena All-in-One Removing Cleansing Wipes

These are my all time favourite makeup remover wipes. Not only do they take off your makeup, but they take off eye makeup and mascara as well! I do have a little bit of residue leftover when it comes to waterproof mascara and eyeliner, but for everything else, it works really well. I was pleasantly surprised to see them available at my local Costco when I was there a couple weeks ago. It’s definitely a great buy if you or someone you know has a membership. It’s a large box that contains 3 large packs plus 2 travel size packs. I’m definitely repurchasing these.

Barefoot Venus Shea Butter Hand Cream in Lychee Luxe

A hand lotion that is rich and feels so velvety soft. If it isn’t for the fact that it’s difficult to find in Canada, let alone online, I would probably repurchase this. The fragrance is strong, but I like it so it doesn’t bother me.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2

This used to be my holy grail toner until I decided to try some other brands out there. It still gives that squeaky clean feeling and preps my skin nicely for serums and moisturizers. Those with dry, cracked skin steer clear of this particular formula – it will sting!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel and Night Cream

Finished off the rest of my Jurlique samples. I do like it, but I don’t find it that much different from other skin care that I’ve been using. Probably will not purchase this again.

La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP

This stuff is honestly amazing for my hands. I can honestly say it replenishes the skin’s moisture and restores cracks the quickest out of all hand creams I’ve tried. It is pricey, but for my hands and the abuse it goes through at work, it just might be worth it.

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion+

This is one of the samples I received in a past Sephora order. I can understand why there’s such a huge cult following for this sunscreen. It’s extremely liquidy, but when you apply it to the face, it dries to an almost powder-like matte finish! What sunscreen does that? There was only enough in the package for one full face and neck application which made me a little sad. The price for this is pretty steep ($49 for 50ml!!)
