July Empties

It's time for July Empties ~ As usual, you can see my previous empties here. If I have featured certain product before I will just link you to the post instead of writing about it again :) I have quite a bunch of products today so let's get started !


GARNIER Mineral UltraDry Anti-Perspirant (50 ml)

I featured this on my February Empties :)

SEPPÄLÄ The Wipe Off Nail Polish Remover (125 ml)

I got this as a birthday gift from my friend last year but I didn't open it until February. So it lasted about 6 months in my use. I usually do my nails on a weekly basis but there might be times I'm too busy/lazy to do my nails. I liked this and I think it removed nail polish pretty fast. Of course with stubborn glitter and other stuff I need to use aluminum foil as well XD I would repurchase this but I can live without it as well. Rate: 4/5

RFSU Easy Shavin' Intim Shaving Gel (20 ml)

I got this from LivBox April and I really liked this. It made shaving so much more easier :) I would recommend this but I wouldn't repurchase this. I can live fine with my shower gels and use them as a shaving gel. Rate: 3½/5

PALMOLIVE Naturals Calming Pleasure Shower Gel (250 ml)

I bought this in May together with 2 other shower gels. This was the first one to finish. I really like this one :) It has a nice, mild cherry scent and it moisturizes a bit as well. And it looks pretty too. I have used this before as well. I really like Palmolive shower gels; they're affordable and good quality. I totally recommend and would repurchase this. Rate: 5/5

ANNA SUI La Vie De Bohème edt (30 ml)

I bought this one in September last year. This was my second one. The packaging is so pretty and the scent is nice too ~ I'm really bad at describing scents but to my nose this is a feminine, flower-ish and summer-like scent. On headache days I don't like using this because it's pretty strong scent at first. I really like this and I would repurchase it again. Rate: 4½/5

DOVE Hair Therapy Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisture Shampoo (250 ml)

I haven't bought this so this hasn't been on my blog before. My mom bought this for herself but she didn't like it that much. I tried it once and I really liked it so I used rest of it. I use most of this so I'm featuring it on my empties :) This really helped to moisturize my hair and made it less frizzy. The scent is nice, somewhat fruity and reminds me of banana (yup, you read that right). It foams well and cleanses well. Only downside is that I think it made my scalp grease faster... I would recommend this but I wouldn't repurchase this. I think. Rate: 4-/5


ACO Lip Balm (5 ml)

I have featured this on my January Empties :)

E.L.F. Zit Zapper Acne Treatment (6 ml)

I have featured this on my June Empties :)

ETUDE HOUSE Lock'n Summer Cushion Blusher #OR201 Let's Go! Coral (5 g)

I won this from Etude House FB Giveaway last year :) I didn't really start using this until this year. Reason why it took so long for me to start using this was simply my dumb thought it would be too bright or too "something" for my skin. What a dumb thought LOL ! I really liked this one ~ The "usage period" of this is 6 months after opening but it's now been 8½ months since opening and I don't think it has gotten bad or anything. I used this on my cheeks as a blush as well as on my lips. I watched some Korean beauty show and they said that cushion blusher can be used as a base under liptint/lipstick to make lip color stay better or as an eye shadow as well. I think I might repurchase this again and try out different shades as well :) But we'll see ~ Rate: 4/5

Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil (25 ml)

I have featured this one on my January Empties as well :D

NIVEA Daily Essentials Sensitive 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water (200 ml)

I got this one from LivBox February this year. I'm not quite sure "how to properly use micellar cleansing water" so I've been just using this after eye&lip makeup remover, before oil cleanser as a base makeup remover. Sometimes I've also used this after cleansing but before toner. So this has been like a "between other cleansing steps" product for me :D Maybe that's why it took so long to finish this one...?  Besides Nivea's sun products this was the first one that worked on my skin somehow. I usually avoid their products because they doesn't work for me or stings my skin etc. I would recommend this but I don't think I would repurchase this. I guess I have yet to experience the micellar cleansing water fever that some beauty bloggers/vloggers have :D Rate: 3½/5

LUMENE Matt Touch Deep-Cleansing Peat Mask (100 ml)

I bought this one in November last year. This was my second or third time finishing this one. Out of all the masks sold here in Finland that I've tried this one is the best. But compared to Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask this doesn't work that well. I would recommend this but I don't think I will repurchase this anymore. Rating: 4-/5

INSTITUT CLAUDE BELL RIZ-RICE Rice Toner (200 ml)

I received this one from Harmony Life back in May (post here). I wrote about the product on that post so check it out. I don't want to write the same stuff again... Long story short: not a fan of the scent, the packaging is difficult but I liked it. I wouldn't repurchase this, Rate: 3/5


INNISFREE Green Persimmon Pore Dual Kit 3PCS (Toner & Essence 5 ml samples)

I ordered these samples from Cosmetic Love in July (post here). I already kinda wrote about these in the post so read it :) I don't want to repeat my words. I liked these but I'm not sure if I want to repurchase these in the full size. These were good but I don't think they were that special. I liked the toner better than the essence :) Rate: 3½/5

LANEIGE Moisture Power Essential Skin Refiner (25 ml)
LANEIGE Moisture Balancing Emulsion (25 ml)

I ordered this Laneige trial kit from Cosmetic Love in May/June (post here). I've always wanted to try out Laneige products and I'm glad I ordered this trial kit. With these samples I'm breaking this in two parts. First are the two products meant for dry to normal skin types. I found these too glowy and sticky for me to use during the day so I used these as an overnight moisturizers. I really think these helped me to balance the moisture balance on my oily-mixed-sensitive yet thirsty skin. I really like the scent of these. It's pretty elegant and I think it really shows in the scent that the brand is more of an high-end brand in Korea. It has that "adult like" scent LOL ! I would recommend these but I personally wouldn't repurchase these. I liked the skin refiner more than the emulsion. Rate: 3½/5

LANEIGE Water Bank Essence_EX (10 ml)
LANEIGE Water Bank Gel Cream_EX (10 ml)

These two on the other hand I really loved ! These I could use during the day as well, I also like how these were more easy to get the product out because of the pump on the essence and squeezable tube on the gel cream. These absorbs pretty fast and have the same scent with the two samples above. I really recommend these and I'm considering to buy them as a full sized products. Especially the essence. I really fell in love with it ;W; I finished these two earlier than the two above. Rate: 5-/5


These aren't empties but I just have to throw them away for different reasons stated below. Shall we see what reasons are they? 

DDUNG Family Peeling Gel (125 ml)

I got this from Memebox Scrub 2 last year. As I mentioned on that post this one has high promises but it just doesn't work on my skin. It looks pretty ugly, has a bad scent and doesn't rinse away. It also leaves these little bumps after rinsing, gets stuck on my hair and I think it also breaks me out... Definitely won't be buying this one. Rate: 1/5

KSKIN Rose Sense 100% Essential Oil (5 ml)

This one came from Memebox Herbal Cosmetics last year as well. I haven't had ANY use for this. I've opened this and smelled and was like "yup no" because the rose scent is way too strong for me. I don't have a bathtub so I can't use this there, I have different perfumes so I won't use this as a perfume either and I definitely don't want to put this on my pads like Memebox suggests :'D I also don't make candles where I could maybe use this. So I'm throwing this away. I can't really rate it as I haven't used this at all. Rate: ?/5

PRO YOU S Special E/B Creamy Peel (50 g)

I got this one from the Scrub Memebox as well. As I mentioned on the post I don't know HOW this is supposed to work. This has been just sitting on the bathroom shelf waiting for me to figure out how this works. When I took this out and tried to use it again I noticed the pump doesn't work no matter what I do. How can the pump stop working in ~7 months itself?! That's a mystery I can't solve. Maybe the product has gotten bad and hardened in the packaging? I don't know... Anyways I'm throwing this away and I don't think I will repurchase this. Rate: 2/5
