January 2016 Empties

Hello there ~ Today's post is going to be somewhat long as it's first empties of the year :) I'll try a different post format this time to keep the post as short as possible. You can see my previous empties here. Let's start ~ ^^

DERMOSIL Hair Spray Structure & Volume (50 ml) - Very strong hold yet easy to brush away. Good for humid climate and doesn't smell bad. Doesn't "go in to my mouth" like some hair sprays tend to do. I would recommend and might buy this again. Rate: 4½/5

PALMOLIVE Aroma Sensations Feel Glamorous Pampering Shower Scrub (50 ml) - Cute little travel sized bottle. Artificial yet good scent. I found this pretty difficult to squeeze the product out when it was nearing the end. Maybe a tad too sweet scent for me. I prefer fresh scents :) Rate: 4-/5

GARNIER Mineral UltraDry Anti-Perspirant (50 ml) - Holy grail. I will probably keep repurchasing this for the rest of my life unless I find something better. Rate: 5/5

SEBAMED Hand & Nail Cream (75 ml) - Pretty good hand cream. Absorbs quickly & doesn't make my hands sticky. Not a fan of the scent - it's somewhat strong and reminds me of medicine/hospital scent. Wouldn't repurchase. Rate: 4-/5

VASELINE Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer (190 ml) - Super easy to use & very handy for a lazy person like me. Absorbs fast & moisturizing is enough for my skin :) Can be used for the whole body and the moisture lasts quite long I think. Lasted longer than I thought and I think I should repurchase this one. Because of the spray system I used every single drop of the product. Rate: 5/5

REXONA Cherry Burst Special Edition Shower Gel (250 ml) - Pretty good, your usual shower gel. I'm on the edge where I can't decide if I like or dislike the scent. It's pretty strong and artificial cherry scent. I don't think I'd repurchase this. Rate: 4/5

CALMIA Silky Soft Foot Cream (100 g) - Really heavy duty foot cream ! It made my super dry feet as soft as baby's butt ! Has a mild, nutty scent to it and the texture is really creamy and absorbs fast enough. I really enjoyed using this and I'm really sad it's over now :( This came in Memebox and I don't know where I can repurchase this. I might repurchase this someday when I run out of my current foot creams. Rate: 5/5

SENSAI Silky Purifying Cleansing Oil (30 ml) - Really good cleansing oil ! It didn't break my skin and removed makeup really well. On light makeup days this was enough to remove all of my makeup and no foaming cleanser was needed afterwards. Didn't irritate my eyes either. I might consider buying the full sized one depending on the price #stingyandpoorperson LOL ! Rate: 4½/5

SENSAI Silky Purifying Creamy Soap (30 ml) - Unlike the oil above this one stings my eyes and on those days when my skin felt dry it was too drying. But on the other hand the cleansing power was really great ! I could actually see my skin was clean. Only little amount was needed as this foams up really well. I don't think I would buy the full sized product. Rate: 4-/5

SENSAI Cellular Performance Emulsion II Moist (20 ml) - I found this one too greasy to use during the day. So I used this mainly as a night time moisturizer. I liked using this but I don't think it did anything special to my skin. I wouldn't buy the full sized product. Rate: 3/5

ÊTRE BELLE Hyaluronic Triple Effect Quicklift Day & Night Serum (5 ml) - This tiny sample lasted about 3-5 uses in my use. The scent is fresh but somehow reminds me of swimming halls or spas. I don't know why though. I found this quite weird because it FOAMED when I applied it on my face. After I finished applying it had absorbed and the foam had disappeared. I don't know why it happens - maybe it's some special effect this product has? Anyhows I didn't think this was anything special. Rate: 3/5

ETUDE HOUSE Dear Darling Tint #01 Berry Red (5 g) - I used this a lot in 2014 winter but then I got distracted by other products... LOL ! I never used this alone as I found it too sheer and it didn't stay that well. But when used above some other lip products it stayed pretty decently. This one transfers also really easily. I liked the berry scent of this. It looks really dark on the tube but it's not that strong. It's somewhat cold, pinkish red and I really like the shade. But as this has been opened for couple of years I noticed it had gone bad; the smell isn't the same and there's mold in the applicator. So yeah, time for this to go to cosmetic heaven. Rate: 4-/5

ETUDE HOUSE Dear My Enamel Gloss #ERD301 Wonder Gloss Red (4,5 g) - This one has pretty much same story as the one above... This one has also gone bad. I haven't used this that much because I found this too sticky to use unless I pull all my hair to the back #lipglossproblemsonawindyday LOL ! I also found this quite drying on my lips :// I don't think the shade was for me as well - colder shades tend to look better on my skin. This was a bit too orange/warm on my skin. I think this one is discontinued so I can't even repurchase it if I wanted to. Rate: 3-/5

MSCHIC Lip Liner #Santa's (1 g) - I've barely used this yet I've managed to break the cap... I've had this opened for 3 years now so I guess it's time to throw it away. Who knows what germs it has gathered in my makeup pouch... Lip liners aren't for me. Rate: 1/5

ELISHACOY Vita Capsule Cleanser (80 ml) - This came when I bought this cleansing set from Wishtrend (affiliate link) and I've been using it only when I use my ElishaCoy 3D Spin Cleaner. When used together with the cleaner I can cleanse my skin sensitively yet effectively and I can see my skin is cleansed thoroughly. Only minus side of the cleanser is that it stings when it somehow gets into my eyes. It has a mild scent. I totally recommend you to check out the set as there are only last items in stock left ! I wouldn't repurchase this cleanser because I can use the spin cleaner with other foaming cleansers as well :) Rate: 4/5

FORMULA 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Everyday Cleanser (200 ml) - My new HG toner :) It's alcohol free and doesn't dry my skin. It's good for my sensitive, oily yet dehydrated skin. I totally recommend you to try this out :) I will keep repurchasing until I find something even better. Rate: 5/5

EAU THERMALE AVÈNE Thermal Spring Water (150 ml) - I don't know what kind of magic there is inside the water but it made wonders to my skin ! I really loved using this on top of makeup when I felt my face needed moisture. It soothes and calms down my skin when it's feeling hot. Totally recommend this and I think I will repurchase this (in a bigger size) after my current mist. Rate: 5/5

TONYMOLY Fresh Cleansing Tissue (15 pcs) - I don't usually like using cleaning tissues as they tends to leave my skin feeling greasy and doesn't even remove makeup that well. This one removed pretty well and left my skin feeling fresh. I did use another cleansing products afterwards to make sure all of my makeup is removed. I think these are the best cleansing tissues I've tried so far. I wouldn't repurchase as I prefer oil cleansers to remove my makeup. But these would be great when traveling ! Rate: 4+/5


That's all for my January Empties ~ I got 15 (+3) empties this month. Pretty well for the 1st month I think. I wonder how many empties I get for this month ^^ How did you like this new format? Is it better than the previous one? Comment below and let me know :)

    1. Yeah Sensai is really expensive at least here in Finland. Though it depends on products. Their mascaras aren't too expensive for my budget :)


I'd love if you could leave me a comment on what you thought about this post :) Comments make every blogger happy :)
