Monthly Empties April

Hello, I have been so impressed with how well I have been finishing products (knock on wood), that I have decided to make it a monthly blog post. I will also be adding samples because I have a box full and I also think it's a good idea for a quick mini review.

3 Concept Eyes by Nanda Embossed Cotton Puffs - 100pcs
A gift with purchase, your normal cotton squares nothing special. I mean they are cotton pads what's there to write about.
Repurchase? No

Bath & Body Works Cherry Vanilla Body Lotion - 236ml
Received this from my uncle in America last year and I just finished it. This is summer in a bottle for me it has the most amazingly sweet scent ever, but I love it also the fragrance actually lasts on the body for about two days. Plus it provides enough moisture for the summer time without making me feel all sticky.
Repurchase? No, because sadly it was a seasonal product.

White Glo Professional Choice Toothpaste - 150g
I have been using this toothpaste for so long, but I have not noticed any change in my teeth. Also it does not smell very nice and it lathers up so much like your brushing your teeth with shower gel.

Repurchase? No

Pantene Night Miracle Leave on Creme Serum - 90ml
Claims to repair your hair while you sleep, I did not see any difference while using this. But I must admit that I have super dry hair. I do like the scent but that is it.
Repurchase? No, but I think I have one from my sister laying around somewhere.
SooRyeHan Soo Cleansing Cream - 40ml
This was one of the deluxe samples from the SooRyeHan sets that I brought from Gmarket. Lasted me for a really long time, great for dry skin. Just like the rest of the line it has the same strong herbal scent. I used this at night to gently remove make up and then used a foaming cleanser to remove the residue.
Repurchase? No, I have a few more tubes.

Ye Dam Yun Bit Complete Snail Anti-aging Recover Emulsion - 30ml Deluxe Sample
My mother gave me this emulsion and toner samples from a skincare set she received from my sister, its from a brand I have never heard of before. So I took a look at the pamphlet, which was in English, and the brand it manufactured by Samsung. It has a really strong scent almost like they were trying to cover something awful. The texture was like a cream, nothing like a normal emulsion which is usually runny will this emulsion was so thick that is was impossible to get out. I had to find a pump to use with it, however it was really moisturizing I didn't notice any anti-aging effects.

Etude House Vitamin C O2 White Kit - Serum 30ml
Unlike the capsules that came with the kit, I did not see any whitening results at all. It was also a bit too sticky for me liking and needed a few minutes to be fully adsorbed.
Repurchase? No

Clinique All About Eyes Rich - 15ml
I was so jumping with joy when I got this and I used it right away, hoping with would help with puffiness and dark circles I had during that time. I tired really hard to love this because to most it was a HG product, but sadly it did nothing for me besides be moisturizing. On the plus side you only need a tiny amount and this is why it lasted me so long.
Repurchase? No, because for it to be just moisturizing is not enough for me to repurchase it.

Mizon Aqua Bank WaterMax Aqua Moist Serum - Sample
A gel serum, it is very light weight but it's not for me dry skin.It would be much more suited for those with normal to oily skin.

Mizon Aqua Bank WaterMax Aqua Gel Cream - Sample
Very light on the skin did not ball up with suncream was layered on top of it, like most gel products. Again I think the whole Aqua WaterMax line is targeted for normal to oily skin.

Invisible Zinc ESP Moisturiser SPF 30+
A thick white, traditional suncream yet not sticky at all. I was expecting this to make me feel like a mess because of how thick it was, but surprisingly it had an almost matte feeling. It made a good base for BB cream/foundation, I would repurchase if it comes in SPF 50.

Konjac Sponge
I love using this with my morning cleanser, it's very gentle yet effective. When I brought this it was very moist and then dries, but lately it has been taking a longer time to get it wet again. Also it's starting to develop black spots on it, so it time to bin it.

That's all, take care
