[Monthly Project] #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!

Monthly Project (February 2018)

#20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!


Four months later since my last empties post. Time long enough to emptied an amount of products in order to share with you here.

I think sharing product empties is a way to consolidate my final thoughts toward these products (whether worth buying or not). Fair enough to say so because I've already emptied them.

If you are planning to purchase one of these products below, I hope this will be informative and helpful. :)

What you can expect from this post:
  • Products which I have emptied or discarded in the past 4 months;
  • Worth purchasing, or not.


Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!





① Senka's Perfect Water Cleansing Make Up Remover (300ml)


Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; Senka's Perfect Water Cleansing Make Up Remover

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Moisturizing cleansing water (without leaving the skin dry).Weakness(es) : Moderate cleansing power and for certain reason it feels soapy once you overused.Final rating : 2.5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Quite a decent cleansing water, but I still prefer micellar cleansing water overall. Won't repurchase.


② Benton's Aloe BHA Skin Toner (200ml)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; Benton's Aloe BHA Skin Toner


(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Moisturizing mild chemical exfoliating toner (contains 0.5% Salicylic Acid). 
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 4.5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? For skincare beginners (like me) who wish to incorporate chemical exfoliant ingredient (AHA / BHA) into our skincare routine, this toner here is definitely a good start. Use layering technique to get more moisture out of it. Won't be repurchasing it soon since I would like to try out other toners.


③ Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind (120 Light/Pale)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Smooth texture with above moderate coverage.
Weakness(es) : Tends to crease around eye areas.
Final rating : 4 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Decent concealer with affordable price! Dark circles? BAAAM, gone! Definitely worth the hype. However, perhaps it's intended customers are on the higher age group, so the formulation is a bit on the oily side, which tends to crease (unless you bake it nicely with setting / finishing powder). Not gonna repurchase it for the moment as I would like to try out other concealers.


④ I-Mju's Hatomugi Skin Conditioning Gel (Beauty Serum) (180g)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; I-Mju's Hatomugi Skin Conditioning Gel (Beauty Serum)

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Bouncy texture fulled with moisture, no artificial fragrance added, cooling effect.
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Affordable price and it comes in big volume. Suitable to use as body moisturizer too! I emptied it while applying it on my sunburn skin. It's cooling and moisturizing. Not sticky when dried. Definitely repurchasing soon!!


⑤ ALIVE:LAB's Multi Ice Cream (100ml)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; ALIVE:LAB's Multi Ice Cream

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Sherbet-like texture (especially cooling after leaving it in fridge) which provides deep moisturization
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Besides its cute packaging, I love its unique sherbet-like texture, whereby you may feel thick when applying onto the skin, but it soon creates a moisture-barrier on top, and it provides sufficient moisturization throughout the day. Especially handy during summer season (hot weather). Will repurchase (but not so soon).


⑥ Silcot's Uru Uru Puff (40 pads per box)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; Silcot's Uru Uru Puff

(click here for related product review)


Strength(s) : Save more toner while using this sponge-like pads; unlike cotton pads, it won't reel off.
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Absolutely brilliant invention that saves our precious toner usage!! Also, with its sponge-like absorption power, it can hold toner longer in which we can use it for spot treatment. Definitely repurchasing.


⑦ mise en scene's Pearl Shining Nourishing & Shining Rinse (780ml)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; mise en scene's Pearl Shining Nourishing & Shining Rinse


Strength(s) : Pleasant scent that lasts, instant hair tangle remedy.
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Affordable and effective hair conditioner (just like snapping your finger) which you would love it right away. Actually mise en scene has a good variety of hair products which definitely worth checking out. Not repurchasing soon as I would like to try out more...


⑧ Etude House's Skin Mal:gam Moist (250ml)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; Etude House's Skin Mal:gam Moist


Strength(s) : Moisturizing toner for dry skin
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 3.5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? My favourite toner during my university time. Love it because it is super moisturizing. However, since I am switching to multi-functional toner, this toner becomes less favorable. Would recommend this for youngster who starts to try out skincare.


⑨ A'PIEU's Edge Brow Pencil (Secret Formula) #Red Brown

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; A'PIEU's Edge Brow Pencil (Secret Formula) #Red Brown

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Creamy formula, comes in long brow pencil, unique pencil shape for shape edge
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 4 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Due to its creamy formula, it requires extra attention while drawing brows without overdoing it (or you will become like Shinchan, the carton character XD). I've just opened a brand new one, so not going to repurchase anytime soon.


⑩ PETITFEE's Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch (60pcs/30 pairs)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; PETITFEE's Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch

(click here for full product review)


Strength(s) : Intensive spot treatment (moisturizing and tightening) around eye areas.
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 4 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? I didn't use this eye patch continuously day by day. Instead I only apply it whenever I feel like my eye areas are swollen or dull. This eye patch did slightly improved the skin condition. However, I won't be repurchasing soon since I would like to try out other eye patches.


⑪ Innisfree's Capsule Recipe Pack Jeju Volcanic Clay Mask (10ml)


Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; Innisfree's Capsule Recipe Jeju Volcanic Clay Mask


Strength(s) : Soft and smooth volcanic clay that effectively absorbs excessive sebum; comes in small packaging which is convenient (volcanic clay in large packaging tends to dry out before finishing, for my case)
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Absolutely will go for capsule type volcanic clay mask to suck out excessive sebum. Definitely will stock up for future use!


⑫ Laneige's Water Sleeping Mask (tester)

Monthly Project; #20 March to June 2018 Empties!!!; Laneige's Water Sleeping Mask & B.Liv's Deep Impact


Strength(s) : Replenishes and creates skin moisture barrier overnight.
Weakness(es) : -
Purchase full size product? I've been wanted to try out this hot item for a long time. Since I don't have much budget, so it was great to be able to try out their tester and get a glimpse of it. Considering its functionality, I'm seriously thinking to purchase full size product, but not so soon.


⑬ B.liv's Deep Impact Cleanser (tester)

Strength(s) : Natural Jojoba beads as the exfoliator; moisturizing face cleanser
Weakness(es) : -
Purchase full size product? I got this tester as free gift while purchasing online. Not too sure about purchasing full size product. I'm like "50:50" if you asked me.
