August 2015 Empties

Managed a few big things this month

Laneige Light Balancing Emulsion

Full review currently cooking on the back burner. Another product from Laneige that is for the oily-combination skin types. This was perfect for me in the summer as I was able to get just enough hydration into my skin without overdoing it. It definitely would not be enough hydration in the drying winter months – just to keep in mind.

Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital 30 SPF High Potency Daily Moisturizing Cream

Full review here.

Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturizer Enriched

This is currently one of my favourite night creams. Have another on backup already!

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser – foaming formula

Full review here.


Plus getting through some of the sample stash too

Naisture 15minutes: mask pack – Moisture Green tea

I’m finally getting around to using these masks! I purchased a bunch of these Naisture masks a couple years ago when I went on vacation to San Francisco. These are made in Korea and I can’t find much info about them. A full review is cooking while I go through the rest of them. In short, I do like these masks and would get more if I could!

Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream

I had a full review of the Gel Cream version here. This is the Moisture Cream version. It is very hydrating, and would work well in the dry winter time for intense moisturizing. It’s a bit heavy for summer time unfortunately.

Laneige Perfect Renew Dual Touch Eyes

I definitely left this sample around too long because I wasn’t able to use the day side. This sample had two wells – one each for day and night. The day side (which contains SPF 25) was dried up and unusable. The night side was still good and hydrated my eyes nicely. N0t sure if I would purchase this as I usually like to use a day cream with SPF instead of multiple products that have SPF in it.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging & Intensive Repair Eye Serum

I got a sample of this from a Luxe Box and it’s quite nice. It is hydrating, however I definitely can not justify the price tag. $155 for 15ml?? No thanks. I’ve definitely used other eye creams for significantly less and does just the same.

Murad Clarifying Wipes for blemish-prone skin

Another sample from Luxe Box. I wouldn’t recommend this at all. I don’t have blemish-prone skin but even for those that do, I strongly suggest you use something else. For one thing, it burns. All I did was wipe my face lightly with it and my face felt like it was on fire. It turned red and and quite warm to touch. Am never using this again. My skin did not like it at all.

Murad Pore & Line Minimizing Hydrator

And another sample from Luxe Box. It’s hard to say whether this did anything as it was pretty much a one time use. Also, my skin was still burning from the above clarifying wipes so I can’t give a proper review. One thing I did notice was the smell – it had a very strong plastic smell (almost nauseating for me) and that was enough to turn me away from it.
