I don’t think I’ve ever done Empties posts. I usually throw things away as soon as they’re finished and it feels like I’m collecting junks as I’m already collecting quite a lot of half-used products, not knowing when I’ll ever use them again. Since I’m in tight-ass mode, I decided I should try to finish whatever I can and document my accomplishment.
Priceline Beauty Essentials Nail Polish Remover Conditioning
The conditioning formula means it’s quite gentle to the flesh around the nail, but requires extra work to remove nail polish. At around A$3.50 I would consider repurchase. It’s good when I’m doing consecutive nail swatches, which means I’m constantly removing nail polish in one-go and this isn’t too harsh to my cuticles.
Garnier Clean Sensitive Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
This is the nth bottle I went through, however it was the longest this time since I rarely wear makeup nowadays. Does a good job removing makeup and love that it doesn’t sting my eyes when removing makeup from waterlines. The only downside is removing waterproof mascara, but I also rarely wear mascaras so I can live with it.
Goat Moisturising Wash
I got interested in products with Goat Milk formula ever since reviewing Billie Goat product more than a year ago. Goat is a more affordable range. This doesn’t feel soapy and feels more like applying moisturizer on my skin. It’s great for both the body and the face. My super dry skin loves it! The only pain is getting the last bit out. This is my 3rd bottle and will definitely repurchase.
Aldi Lacura Multi Intensive Serum
This is one of the neglected half-used items that was left untouched because it’s hard to pump the last bits out. I scooped out the rest with the pump and can finally retire it. Given its cheap price this isn’t a bad serum. It doesn’t give me the ‘Wow!’ factor but it does a good job keeping moisturizer last longer.
Seven Wonders Moroccan Argan Oil Skin Serum
This was originally sent as PR sample for review and I love how it soothes my dry skin! I bought the 2nd bottle at Chemist Warehouse when it was discounted to A$15 sometimes last year. If you remember my skin decided to get allergy for some unknown reason and it was put aside. It was re-discovered from the half-used bin and it has been a savior for my dry skin so far this winter. My dry skin misses it so much after its last drop and I’m waiting for the next big discount.
Priceline Re-Balance Cleansing Wipes
The cloth wipes does quite a good job removing makeup, however, although it’s ‘vitamin enriched moisturising complex’, it makes my skin feels quite dry and tight afterwards. The rest was used to remove swatches from my arms and hands, which does quite a good job. I haven’t seen these at Pricelines anymore so either it’s out of stock or it’s discontinued. Would probably repurchase for the purpose of cleaning up swatch if I see them again.
