November 2014 Empties
A cozy background for this snowy weather we’re having

Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner Moisture

This was part of a trial set I received when purchasing Laneige products. It has a pleasant scent and softens my skin as prep for the next step. Would definitely repurchase this again.

Laneige Water Bank Essence

This was part of a trial set I received when purchasing Laneige products. See the full review here.

Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream

This was part of a trial set I received when purchasing Laneige products. This is great as a night cream as it is thicker than the lotion and really gives my skin a hydrating boost. It feels like there’s a slight greasy residue, but if you continue massaging it into your skin, that goes away. I love how soft it makes my skin feel.

Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel

Full review here.

Shisheido Ultimune

See my full review of it here.

Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion

Pretty good body lotion for summer time. It soaks right into the skin and doesn’t leave an greasy residue. I just finished it but am finding it not quite hydrating enough for the winter months.  Will definitely repurchase in warmer months.

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy Collection Citron honey & coriander

This was part of a trio one of my girlfriends gave me. It has a strong lemon scent but not too overbearing. I like applying it just before I go to bed, but for the days when my hands are so beaten up from a day’s worth of hand sanitizer use, it’s not enough to hydrate my skin. Otherwise, using it during the day has been really nice.

Lancôme Génifique Yeux Light Pearl 

Bigger review coming soon as it’s still being written. This was hydrating for my lids and under eye area for sure, but because this was a small sample size, I can’t comment on how illuminating it was or how it’s anti-aging property was. Pricey when you look at the website, so I’m not sure if I will repurchase this.

Lancome Teint Idole Fresh Wear

This is no longer made, but I had picked it up at a previous L’Oreal Warehouse sale. I loved how sheer the coverage was and how light and airy it was for every day. I’m not sure if it’s been replaced with another product, but this one is discontinued. What a shame because I really liked this!

Aveeno Eczema Care Moisturizing Cream

A skin saver for the times that I’m itching like crazy. It’s so hard once you make the first scratch, to not continue scratching. This coupled with willpower has saved my skin from becoming raw, inflamed and bleeding.  I’m not sure how much different this is compared to regular Aveeno, but they both work for me.
