September Empties

Hello everyone ! Today I'm feeling really happy for two reasons. It's weekend plus it's autumn break for the whole next week ! I'm planning to get some posts out in the next few days as well as take photos for upcoming reviews :) But that aside now it's time for the monthly empties ! As usual if I have featured some product on my previous empties I will just link you to the original post ~ Let's start right now as I have quite many empties this month.

LUMENE Matt Touch Deep-Cleansing Gel Wash (150 ml)

This one can be found from my February empties :)

NEUTROGENA Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control Daily Foaming Wash (150 ml)

This came on LivBox July and I've been using it pretty much daily since then. I usually use 2 pumps when cleansing my face. As I mentioned on that post this one doesn't have any alcohol in it which I've found to dry out my skin. So yay for that ! I really loved using this and I'm sad I finished this. But this is really affordable so I think I will be repurchasing this soon :) Rate: 5-/5

LUMENE Bright Touch Refreshing Cleansing Foam (150 ml)

I bought this already back in May and I really liked it at first; But then the Neutrogena cleanser above took its place in July and I forgot this... And then my mom lost her cleanser so she used this one. And after I finished Neutrogena I came back to this one. I really like this one but I'm not sure if I should repurchase this or not... Rate: 4/5

LUMENE Bright Touch Refreshing Toner (200 ml)

I bought this in August and I really fell in love ! This became my new favorite toner so far. It doesn't irritate my skin and it doesn't have alcohol in it, it brightens and so on. Will repurchase this again. In fact I already bought it again in September LOL ! Rate: 5/5

LUMENE Arctic Aqua 3D Hydration Cream-Gel (50 ml)

This one came from LivBox August :) I wrote about this product in a pretty detailed way in that post but I'll just quickly say few words of this. I know this is mostly supposed to use as a day cream under make up and supposed to keep the face fresh and matte all day long. I personally found it better to use this as a night cream because it crumbles during the day and makes my face sticky. I would recommend this and I think I would try this again (as a night cream) but I wouldn't go out all my way to buy this. Rate: 4-/5

NIVEA Invisible Anti-Perspirant (25 ml)

This one came from the same box with the cream-gel above :D I think this was okay. It's a cute travel sized version but it's made of glass so that's it for the travel friendly packaging... It has your typical anti-perspirant scent and I liked that it really didn't stain my clothes ! A thing I didn't like is that it didn't keep my armpits dry all day. And I don't even sweat much from that area. All in all this is okay. Wouldn't repurchase this. Rate: 3½/5

SCHWARZKOPF PROFESSIONAL Essensity Color & Repair Shampoo & Conditioner (50 ml)

This duo came from LivBox July as well :) I mentioned on that post that they accidentally sent me two conditioners instead of shampoo & conditioner. I emailed them and they sent me 2 shampoos as well. So now I've finished first duo and I still have the other duo left :D I think these are pretty good but I'm not a fan of the scent. It's pretty strong and smells like some herbs. Wouldn't repurchase. Rate: 3½/5

COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch (24 patches)

I just bought these in September but I also finished these as well... I just bought these to try them out and I was surprised how quickly these absorb the huge pimples and makes them smaller. I mostly used these overnight or on weekends when I don't go anywhere. I know that these can be worn under makeup but I think it looks weird when you have stickers on your face XD I really would repurchase these if there were like 500 patches in the packet LOL ! I think these are great for those who have zits occasionally and needs a quick solution for that. But for those of us who have zits every week... It's waste of money. I still like these a lot ! Rate: 4½/5

LUMENE LAB Hydrasmooth Eye Cream (15 ml)

This came from LivBox April and I've been using it ever since. I think it's good but I don't like it as much as my HQ which is from Lumene as well. I would recommend this but wouldn't repurchase this. It's scentless and suitable for all skin types. Rate: 4-/5

ETUDE HOUSE Real Art Moisture Cleansing Oil (25 ml)

This one can be found from my January Empties :)

NEUTROGENA Concentrated Hand Cream (50 ml)

This one came from LivBox back in February 2014 ! It was about a time to finish this. It's been open for over an year and no matter how hard I squeeze the tube I can't get the product out. So it's time for this to go to the cosmetic heaven. I really liked using this as a night hand cream. I also used this for elbows, shoulders, knees and as a foot cream too. It really helps to relieve cracked skin and makes it moist. However I don't like the fact that this doesn't absorb that quickly... This is good for cold climate ! Would recommend this but wouldn't repurchase this. Rate: 4/5

NATURE REPUBLIC Nature's Deco Premium Oil Blotting Paper (100 sheets)

I bought these from Cosmetic Love back in March 2014 and I've been using these pretty much every day ever since. Only on the days when I wear makeup tho. I thought I would run out fast but these lasted over a year in my use... I like these but I don't think they absorbed oil that well. Nothing special. Rate: 3½/5

LUMENE Blueberry Eyebrow Shaping Wax #Soft Brown (5 ml)

I thought I had featured this before but apparently I haven't, Oh well let's fix that now :D I bought this in November last year and based on the fact that the usage period of this is 6 months after opening I should have already thrown it away around April or June... But I'm the type who uses products until they start to smell iffy or do harm on my skin LOL ! Gotta fix that habit but student budget doesn't allow me to. Anyways this was my 2nd finished and now I'm using the lighter shade which came recently in LivBox. I like this but I think I won't go back to this darker shade anymore. Rate: 4/5

PAESE Blush With Argan Oil #37 (6 g)

This one came from LivBox in May 2014 and I haven't used it at all. I have tried it few times but it's too glittery and shimmery and I don't like how it looks on my face so this has been resting on my shelf for over an year now. It's time to throw this away as it has passed the 12 months after opening as well. Can't really rate this... Rate: 1/5

ARTISTRY Nail Color #Iced Mauve (15 ml)

This is like one of the oldest nail polishes I own... I've gotten this from my mom ages ago. Way before I even started this blog. I like this and I like the shade but it chips very fast... This has gotten way too old to use anymore. You can see here how it looks on my nails. Rate: 3½/5

LIOELE Be My Skin Powder Pact #21 Blooming Ivory (21 g)

I ordered this from Cosmetic Love back in 2012 ! As pale as I am I found this shade too light for me. Ever since I bought my Innisfree No-Sebum Powder I've been mainly using this just for touch ups, I've hit the bottom but there's still plenty of the product left. I mainly just carried this in my pouch and used it as a mirror XD But because this is already 3 years old and I don't really have any use for this anymore I'm throwing it away now. Rate: 3½/5

EDDIE FUNKHOUSER Cheek Color #Audacious (3 g)

Alongside with the nail polish above this one is also super old. I don't know how long it has been open but it's time to throw this away. This one was originally my moms but somehow it has ended in my makeup pouch. I used this at one point but I think I'm not into blushes that much. I always end up looking ridiculous because I don't know how to apply blush LOL ! Rate: 2+/5

FAIRYDROPS Platinum Mascara Waterproof

I've reviewed this before so go read that to see this mascara in action ! It's really great but I don't like the fact that it takes too long to dry. I totally recommend this mascara if you're looking for something that makes your lashes long ! Rate: 4-/5

MAYBELLINE Forever Strong Pro Nail Polish #155 Bubble Gum (10 ml)

And another nail polish finished ! This one was originally my sisters friends but my sister got it from her and somehow this also ended up in my room... I really loved this ! The color is super cute and it lasts long. It's time to throw this away because I can't apply it on my nails anymore :// It has gotten too sticky and dry. Rate: 4/5


PHEW ! Finally done with this post. I think it took me 4 hours to write all this. I'd appreciate if you could comment and share your thoughts on these products. Have you tried any of them? How many products you finished?
