January Empties / Skin Care and Makeup


In the last month or so I have hit the pan too many times. Hurray! It felt so good to finally be done with many of the products below. Such a relief, for I tend to purchase much more than I need or require. 10 mascaras? Really? But at least, I can say goodbye to DiorShow. I've used it for longer than I should have. Remember the 6 month rule? Ah, finally!

And of course, here is the very long list. Enjoy.



1. Dove Visible Care Softening Creme Body Wash / leaves the skin soft and touchable, non-drying, perfect as shaving cream. 4/5

2. Victoria's Secret Shea Butter based lotion / works well, but the fragrance is too overwhelming. 3/5

3. Naturally Upper Canada Body Lotion in Warm Honey / fresh scent, absorbs well, non-greasy, and overall a great lotion for the body and hands. 5/5

4. Principessa Pretty Piede Foot Balm / a nice treat for overworked feet. 4/5

5. Green Beaver Apres-Ski Winter Face Cream / Read the review

6. Nivea Q-10 Anti-wrinkle night cream / my go to nightcream, affordable, non-greasy, and provides immediate results. 5/5

7. B.Kamins Maple Body Lotion / great, but very expensive. 3/5

8. Jouviance Anti-aging cream / this is a high quality product, but the sample size was too small.

9. Beauta Berry Face Cream sample / this product oxidizes and peels off my face as I try to put on my makeup. 2.5/5

10. Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips - Ultra Deep Cleansing / unfortunately, they didn't do much deep cleaning. 3/5

11. SIMPLE Refreshing Facial Wash Gel / works well for sensitive skin. 4/5

12. Korres White Tea Facial Cleanser / perfect for blemish prevention, removes dirt and makeup, perfect for sensitive skin. 4/5

13. La Roche-Posay Derm AHA Intensive Resurfacing Serum / works well so far, but the sample contained too little of the product in order to see a difference in my skin-tone. I will most likely try it again. 4/5

14. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel / a great gel consistency cleanser for blemish-prone skin. It works! 4/5

15. Biore Makeup Removing Towelettes / they get the job done! 5/5

16. Quo Mini eye makeup remover pads / super handy to have. I've carried these around in my purse. Although, slightly too drying. 4/5

17. Prevens Makeup Remover wipes / decent wipes for low price. 4/5

18. Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub / definitely brightened out my complexion, and kept those zits at bay! Unfortunately, I was unable to find it again. 4.5/5

19. NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in 01 / Simply Amazing! This is a great foundation, and works as well if not better than many other leading brands, including department store foundations that I have payed up to $65 for. The bottle was only $12. 5/5

20. DiorSkin Nude in 010 Natural Glow / perfect coverage, but a bit drying. 4/5

21. Lancome Cils Booster XL Mascara Base sampler / won't be buying this product, it did absolutely nothing for my lashes. 2/5

22. Sula Natural Lipgloss in Come Find Me / deeply moisturizing and long lasting as well as natural. 5/5
23. YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch in 01 / yes, it is as good as it claims to be. In fact, I have repurchased. The only downside is that it's very expensive per mL. 4/5

24. Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector / Read the Review

25. Boxx Cream Corrector in Melina / great consistency, coverage, and colour, however, it doesn't last. 3/5
