Monthly Empties - July

I had written this post at the beginning of the month but since I was so busy I did not have time to take the photos. So finally today I did manage to quickly snap up these photos. Let's dig in shall we.
Slatkin & Co. White Sand Candle - 441g 
I brought this during my first haul from Bath and Body Works, I think it was on sale for $10 or less. I love the way it burns so evenly and you get this layer of essential oils. The fragrance notes are grapefruit, sandalwood, coconut milk and jasmine, I did not pick up any of these notes. But it was very light and fresh.
Repurchase? Yes, but not this scent again.

3 Concept Eye Brush Cleanser - 150ml
My first blush cleanser, I just use baby shampoo to clean my brushes. This had a really bad scent and it made my brushes smell awful. While it did clean them mush quicker I did not enjoy using it.
Repurchase? No.

Naruko Marjoram and Lavender Bath and Massage Oil - 30ml
This was a gift from Naruko and the box came with two bottle and a dropper which was broken. I used this as a massage oil when my body felt tired. The scent is so relaxing and it would help me to fall to sleep.
Repurchase? Sadly, this is not listed on the website. But I still have another bottle to use up.

Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Conditioner - 350ml 
Brought this from SaSa and then I saw it at my local supermarket but in a tub container. First up, I find the packaging a tab bit excessive, I mean it's only 350ml but the bottle is huge. Anyway, I love the scent it smells just like the original Dove body lotion that I used to use a long time ago. It make my hair very soft and just smells so good for a few hours after I have used it.
Repurchase? Yes.
Danahan RG II Premium EX Hydro Cream - 55ml
When I purchased the RG II Premium EX they were having a gift with purchase and this was one of them and it's full sized. The first thing you notice when you open the lid is the strong floral scent and it does linger on for quite a while. The texture is a mix between a gel and a cream, it feels just like a gel but looks and moisturizes like a cream would. It made my face look dewy and healthy and I did enjoy using this up.
Repurchase? No, mostly because I like to try other products.

Methode Swiss Whitening UV Cream - 30ml
A fine cream to use, did not break me out. But I did not like how it had SPF in it and the fact that it's a whitening cream for day time. I'm glad I brought it while it was on sale for a very good price. I did not see any whitening results but it was moisturizing at was all.
Repurchase? No.

Beyond Phyto White Ultimate Cream - 55ml
This won the 2011 the Korean Allure Award for the whitening category. I was sucked in and brought from G-market, if you are expecting a whitening cream then this is not for you. I did help brighten my face but once I stopped using it nothing happened. So it does does not have the long
lasting effect it claims. The cream was light but very moisturizing even through I have dry skin and I used this during winter, it was still ok.
Repurchase? No.
Naris Up Skin Conditioner Lotion HA - 360ml 
An affordable toner/lotion that you can also use as a DIY mask. It has a slight sticky texture but absorbed perfectly into the skin. I like how it is a fuss free product that does not claim to 'fix' all your skin troubles.
Repurchase? No, while I did enjoy using it I have other toners I want to use. 
Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence - 150ml
Claims to be 'just' like the famous SK II facial essence, it even looks like it. But it's much cheaper and I was actually amazed that I liked it. It intensely moisturizes the skin and a little goes a long way. If you are looking to buy it, wait for sale it will be a good deal.
Repurchase? Yes, just not right now.

Danahan RG II Premium EX Hydro Essence - 45ml
This was also part of the gift with purchase, it's also full sized. Both the cream and essence have the same strong scent. But I did not enjoy this as much. The product feels very silicon-y and it almost felt like I was apply a primer. I also noticed that I got more white heads and needed to exfoliate more when I used this product.
Repurchase? No.

The Saem Gem Miracle Diamond Cutting V Serum - 40ml
A serum that claims to give you a V shaped face by lifting the skin. This did nothing for me at nothing.
Repurchase? No.
L'oreal UV Perfect Longlasting UVA/UVB Protector SPF 50+ - 30ml
I loved how it provided the perfect base for BB cream or foundation. It did not leave a white cast and it very moisturizing for a suncream.
Repurchase? No, mostly due to that fact that it costs more than $20 to get online.

It's Skin Prestige D'escargot Eye Serum - 15ml
Came with the serum from the same line. While the name states serum this is actually a cream. They claim that it helps smooth out lines and wrinkles around the eye area. While I don't have any wrinkles I do have a few fine lines and I sad to say that this did nothing and I fine with that because I did not expect it do anything beside moisture.
Repurchase? No.
Suisse Programme Cellular Eye  Zone Firming Essence - 3ml SAMPLE
This lasted me for almost 2 weeks and I happy with the results. It did start to reduce the appearance of fine line that were around my eyes. I would repurchase but it's just so expensive.

Suisse programme Cellular Vital Eye Cream - 3ml SAMPLE
I did not see any signficant results with this eye cream. Plus it's super expensive so I won't even consider buying it, will maybe is it was on sale.
