[Monthly Project] #32 Products That I've Finished in 2019 Part I

Monthly Project (April 2019)

#32 Products That I've Finished in 2019 (so far) Part I

I must admit, writing emptied post is 10 times fun than individual product review. It's like a 10-in-1 kinda post - like a summary on the products which I enjoyed or the other way round.

My mum was begging me to get rid of the "rubbish" which I've been collecting, so here we are - the products that I've finished in year 2019 (so far).

What you can expect from this post:
  • Products which I have emptied or discarded in year 2019 (so far);
  • Worth purchasing, or not.

Monthly Project; #32 Products That I've Finished in 2019 Part I

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

Let's start with makeup removers.

(from left to right)

① Althea's Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser (150ml)

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Makeup remover and face cleanser 2-in-1 product, not oily on face, won't strip moisture from your skin.
Weakness(es) : In terms of face cleansing, it might be too gentle.
Final rating : 4.5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Yes, I've repurchased! I find this 2-in-1 cleanser super convenient. So far I haven't found a product like such, so I'm going to stick with it for now.

② Garnier's Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water (125ml)

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Quick makeup removing power.
Weakness(es) : Strong fragrance, not suitable to remove eyeliner and mascara.
Final rating : 3.5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Maybe. You might get chocked up by its strong fragrance - it's either you love it, or hate it. I find this makeup remover efficient in removing face makeup (no doubt), but I would prefer those normal micellar cleansing water. 

③ Nivea's Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover (125ml)

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Gentle on the skin around eye area.
Weakness(es) : Weak makeup removing power.
Final rating : 2 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Not going to repurchase. So disappointed on its eye makeup removing power. It's just an average makeup removing product to me. 

④ Prreti's Perfect Clean Cleansing Tissues (120g / 30ea)

Strength(s) : Super affordable cleansing tissues @ RM5 (buy on Althea here)
Weakness(es) : Consists alcohol and fragrance, so might be tingling on the skin for some.
Final rating : 3 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Maybe. Not the best cleansing tissue out there, but definitely one of the few that value-for-money.

Moving on to face cleanser.

⑤ ISKIN New York's Deep Cleanser (200ml)

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Gentle face cleanser suitable for all skin, doesn't strip moisture from the skin.
Weakness(es) : Price.
Final rating : 4 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Maybe, depending on my buying power. Decent face cleanser that lathers well and cleanses the skin, has slight cooling effect. 

⑥ Cetaphil's Gentle Skin Cleanser (125ml)

Strength(s) Gentle skin cleanser (even for baby!), doesn't strip moisture from the skin, soap and fragrance free, won't sting the eyes.
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Yes. This cleanser doesn't lather bubbles, yet cleanses and remove light makeup gently. Loving this simple-yet-effective product.

Moving to serums.

(from top to bottom)

⑦ IOPE's Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning (trial kit/18ml)

Strength(s) : Skin soothing and skin moisturizing.
Weakness(es) : Hard to tell on the skin improvement.

Purchase full size product? In fact I've already bought the improvised Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning in full-size. Going to give it a try soon and see how.

⑧ It's Skin's Power 10 Formula Propolis (30ml)

(click here for full product review)

Strength(s) : Rich moisturizing and anti-aging properties, suitable for late 20s to early 30s.
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Maybe. Definitely value-for-money. One drop goes a long way because it can be very moisturizing. I think it's perfect for dry skin. Since I have normal to oily skin, I only apply it on my cheek and neck.

⑨ Innisfree's The Green Tea Seed Serum (trial/5ml)

Strength(s) : Moisturizing properties that suit acne-prone skin.
Weakness(es) : -

Purchase full size product? Yes, in fact I've already bought the full-sized product after finishing this trial bottle. Enjoying its moisturizing effect which is just nice for this season of time - just nice for early 20s to early 30s.

Acne patches are really handy, especially after you popped a pimple. Check out these!

⑩ Cosrx's Clear Fit Master Patch (10mm x 18ea)

Strength(s) : Absorbs impurities and oil, suitable to use during daytime.
Weakness(es) : Invisible when it's put on and turns white after absorbing the impurities.

Final rating : 4.5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Yes. Although it can be a bit embarrassing when it turns white, I think it's very effective in covering acne and absorbing the impurities under the acne.

⑪ Cosrx's Acne Pimple Master Patch (7mm x 10ea + 10mm x 5ea + 12mm x 9ea)

Strength(s) : Various sizes of pimple patch that you can pick from, absorbs impurities and oil.
Weakness(es) : Quite visible because of its yellowish color.
Final rating : 2 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Less likely. I would prefer pimple patches that are less visible to wear during daytime.

Moving on to lip balms.

Strength(s) : Creates a nice layer of waterproof protection on top on the lips.
Weakness(es) : Require to reapply often to keep the lips moist.
Final rating : 3 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Probably. A decent lip care product, but nothing too special about it.

Strength(s) : Super moisturizing formula that melts once on the lips.
Weakness(es) : Can used up very fast.
Final rating : 4.5 / 5

⑭ Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50+ PA++++ (55ml)

Strength(s) : Light-weighted formula that dries to velvet finish, not sticky, good makeup base.
Weakness(es) : Damask rose can be a bit overpowering (either you like it, or hate it).
Final rating : 4.5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Highly possible. I really enjoy its velvet-finish that does leave the skin oily or sticky.

⑮ NYX's Matte Finish Setting Spray (60ml)

Strength(s) : Makeup can lasts longer, even under hot and humid weather.
Weakness(es) : -
Final rating : 4.5 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Yes, I've repurchased and using the second bottle now. The fact I didn't rate it full-star is because I haven't given other brands a try. So far this setting spray does me good.

⑯ Peripera's Pearly Night Ink Highlighter - Pink Champagne Beam (8.6g)

Strength(s) : Liquid face highlighter that blends into base makeup easily, suitable for makeup beginner.
Weakness(es) : More of the shimmery than glow.
Final rating : 4 / 5
Repurchase/Comment? Probably. Loving the liquid-creamy texture that blends so easily by just using fingers. The pink beam is really dreamy - love it. The fact that I finished the product within 6 months is truly rare for my case.
