We are done with 3 quarters of 2018, and once again its October! Other then being my birthday month, I wanted to celebrate the products I’ve emptied in the past few months and also share what has been replaced. It is so satisfying to see what products others have finished up, what they love and if they will ever purchase them again. So lets get into it!
Hand/ Foot Cream
First up, we have hand and foot cream! I have extremely dry and sensitive hands at the first place, and working in the service industry requires us to be on our feet and hands approximately around 50 hours a week. That is probably why i could finish 3 bottles of hand creams in 4 months, extremely dry hands. My feet are just as bad due to being on my feet so much.
L’occitane has been the number one brand of hand and foot cream ive purchased since Switzerland, and my holy grail in terms of texture. Both has Shea butter as the main ingredient, and from what i know they have produced another shea butter hand cream that is 25%. That is 5% more then the current one i have! Its the next hand cream i am going for.
The Dr Jart + Ceramidin hand cream is the next to go, but apparently its no longer being carried? Please correct me if i am wrong. The scent and texture of this product is amazing!
Avenue’s skin relief hand cream out of this lot is the least of my favourite, although it works. Just not thick enough for my skin.
Plenty of newbies, especially in terms of brand and products.
3W Clinic is an indie brand without much promotion as compared to brands under the likes of Amorepacific. i have not heard or seen any of their products until i got it on a sale, and man i did not regret one bit of it. Although this sun screen is SPF 50 PA+++, it does not leave a white cast. Even with a thicker and milkier consistency, it did not leave any tacky feeling. This is a brand i am looking forward to trying more products from, and as of now i have replaced it with a high school favourite: The Face Shop Natural Sun Eco Power Long-Lasting Sun Cream
Soon Jung cream is a newer line from Etude House, i still have to try out the toner and other products as a set to figure out if it works on my skin. This line is known for sensitive skin. Ive used it as a night cream, and for now it has been replaced with Atopalm Real Barrier Extreme Cream.
The other three products is not new to my site as they are repeated products 😀 Although the cleaner I’ve replaced it with a distant twin – Baking Powder Deep cleaning foam upsized version (300 ML y’all!)
Maybeline Mascaras are my favourites, i always keep two different ones open at any given time and takes around 5-6 months to go through them at any given time. The constant age rewind concealer may not be the best concealer out there for under eye, but but there is something with the consistency just enough coverage for everyday usage. Another few product repeat and already repurchased, and being drugstore all three are on the affordable side!
Innisfree No Sebum Blur Primer is just something i want to get rid of, had it since my Hong Kong days and to be honest moved on from it since it isn’t available in Singapore anyways. An affordable alternative is the Etude House Fix and Fix Primer, which i have.
There are a couple of cushion foundations and concealers that I’ve used up but unfortunately forgot to keep them for the post, but definitely Etude House. And a contour powder from Innisfree. So frustrating to not keep them! Seeing all these empties really keeps me from not using anything and just doing crazy hauls. By the end of the year, i should have another emptied post.
