November Empties

Sorry for the lack of posts, I made the stupid choice of doing some summer units. Now I have been stuck with loads of essays and presentations. I just wanted to quickly do this post and then return to finishing my uni work :(

I really cannot believe it is December already, this year has gone in a flash for me, maybe it because I have been so busy with uni. Anyways let's dig in.
Isa Knox MX-II Platinum Ultra Moisture Lotion, Emulsion & Eye Cream
I really enjoyed using this line from Isa Knox. They helped keep my skin well moisturized during winter, without leaving any sticky residue on the face. I did individual reviews on these here, here & here
Repurchase? No, just because I have other products that I want to try out. 

Methode Swiss Thermal Hydrating Toner - 400ml
A sale purchase from SaSa, I still cannot believe I bought this for only $8. It's really hydrating just like the name says. I use a patting motion to apply this, I did try using a otton pad. But I found that patting worked better for me. You read my review here.
Repurchase? Not right now, but if I ever saw it on sale I would.
Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Foaming Wash - 120ml
This was my morning cleanser and I love how gentle it is. The smell is not my favorite but luckily its very faint. Also while it states to be a foaming wash, it actually does not foam too much.
Repurchase? NO, I think I have a back up.

Skin Peptoxyl Derma Renewal 3 Minute Peel - 120ml
This is a chemical scrub, it contains glycolic aid, lactic acid, pyruvic acid and polypeptides. The first time I used this it tingled my face so much that it became red, you leave it on for 3 minutes and then wash with cold water. My face looked brighter, and had a very dewy look after I use this. However, when I continued to use this I did not notice and tingling.  
Repurchase? No, I have been using the Paula's Choice Alpha Hydroxy Acid as part of my daily night routine.

Color Combos Hydrating Makeup Remover - 200ml 
I'll make this quick this sucks. It's a bi-phase makeup remover that does not remove any makeup. It does not even remove non-waterproof mascara. Plus it irritated my eyes. .
Repurchase? No.

Indeed Labs. Hydraluron - 30ml
There has been so much rave about this product, so the minute I saw it in Priceline I grabbed it. You apply this before your cream. I don't know what it is but it works. I just wish it came in a bigger size.
Repurchase? Already have.

Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream - 15ml
I'm still on the fence with this product, it contains mineral oil and while many say that it bad for the skin. I just find it annoying to purchase a high end product and find that it contains mineral oil. While it is very hydrating and keeps my eye area well moisturized, I found that it's too heavy for the day time and when you use too much you get little bumps under the eye.
Repurchase? No, but I do have another back up to use.
Pantene Clicicare Frizz Defying Serum - 30ml
I have very fizzy hair and thought this might 'help' me. It have a very watery consistency and I love the smell of this. However, it did nothing to my frizzy hair.
Repurchase? No.

Dove Nourishing Oil Care - 40ml
Kept my hair soft and smelling good. I did find to weigh down my hair.
Repurchase? Not right now.

Kracie Ichikami Hair Treatment Essence - 100ml
I bought this with the hope that it will provide moisture to my dry hair. Sadly it just wasn't enough for my hair. I did enjoy the apply scent.
Repurchase? No.

Schwarzkopf Time Restore Stain Spray - 200ml
This really helps with detangling my hair plus it also makes my hair so soft afterwards. Plus it contains Q10 to help restore fragile hair.
Repurchase? Not right now, I'm trying to use up all the products that I have.

Bawang Nutri-repairing Conditioner - 400ml
I used this as a weekly treatment for my hair and I love the results. It make my hair a lot more softer but without weighing down. Plus it's really cheap for the size.
Repurchase? I have a back up.  
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Lotion - 155ml
I remember how much I love the hand cream when I was in high school. This is just the same as the hand cream but lighter in texture. It moisturizes without leaving and residue on the skin. However, I do like my body creams/lotions to be nicely fragranced.  
Repurchase? No.

L'occitane Lavender Moisturizing Hand Lotion - 250ml
One of the nicest hand lotions I have ever used. The fragrance is unlike any lavender product that I have used. Plus it keeps my hands and body so moisturized. I just love it.
Repurchase? Yes.

Mitchum Power Gel Deodorant - 63g
The gel formula it something new to me, mostly because I'm used to the cream deodorants. I love how this dries dry and keeps sweat at bay. Plus the scent is really nice.I just wish it was available locally.
Repurchase? Already have.
Australis See Ya Later Nail Polish Remover - 120ml
This is an acetone remover and I only use it for when I have glittery nail polish. It's cheap and effective.
Repurchase? Yes.

3 Concept Eyes Cotton Pads - 100pcs
I received so many packets of these when I placed an order from style nanda  a long time ago and I just finished them. They have cute hearts embossed onto the pads.
Repurchase? No.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelettes - 25 wipes
Great for those nights when you just way to tired to remove your makeup. The are very effective removing waterproof mascara in a breeze.
Repurchase? No.

I need to go back tot my studies now.
