Product Empties #1

Hi everyone! I didn’t get any posts up in the past few days because I have been busy with some stuff I needed to finish but I’m not busy anymore as of now. I have a few posts sitting in draft but I was not feeling them so I thought why don’t I do a product empties post because I have never done that on my blog before and it would be fun to make a quick review of each of the products. These are the items that I gathered in the 15 minutes I spent to find them in my bathroom and beauty shelf.
Safi Balqis White Trilogy Kiwi Scrub: some claimed that this scrub broke them out but thankfully it didn’t on me. However, it does nothing to my skin from what I can see but if you have sensitive skin and you’re looking for a gentle scrub, this might be the one for you. The beads are very small and they are not rough at all.
Mistine Egg White Peel Off Mask: I love this product. I already have backup and one tube of this lasted me a good a year and a half. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, reduces the redness on my face and I’m pretty sure it did something to my pores. It also removes your fine hair (read: facial hair).
Nivea Pearl & Beauty Roll-On Deodorant: I was a huge fan of spray deodorant but I read online that you can get cancer from it. Although death is inevitable, I would like to live a little longer. Anyhow, I was using a different brand before and I was in need of a new, inexpensive one because at that time I was still in Shah Alam and you know how it is with students, we are broke all the time so this was the cheapest, only RM4 so I got it. I love it! I feel fresh from morning till night and it smells so good. I rarely get sweaty armpits ever since I use this deodorant.
St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub: a cult favourite in the beauty world. I really like this scrub because my skin felt so soft after using it but the beads are rough. I don’t know the proper adjective to describe the beads but if you have sensitive skin like I do, don’t ever scrub your face with so much pressure using this product because it will leave your skin red.
Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask: I only had a sample size of this product but I’ll feature it in this post anyway. I mentioned it in my skincare wish list post so please check that post out. Basically, this is the best mask I have ever tried.
Innisfree Jeju Peach Hand Cream: my favourite hand cream was Hand Food by Soap & Glory but I ran out of it so I went ahead and got the Etude House Missing U hand cream but I didn’t like that one all that much. But this Innisfree one is awesome. This particular smell is so good and it doesn’t feel greasy on the hand which I really like. Definitely will repurchase.
Etude House Moistfull Aloe Soothing Cream: this was an impulse buy for me. They had some sort of promotion going on. I believe I paid RM120 for this cream, essence, and a bunch of other products and sheet masks. I still have a bit left of this product but I bought it back in 2013 and I do not keep anything more than 3 years so I had to throw it away. Besides, it smells off so I’m not keen on the idea of putting it on my face. If you have dry skin, this is good for you. Oily skin like me? Not really suitable but it does hydrate your skin.
Etude House Black Head Heating Scrub: getting rid of it because I had it for years already. It’s a clear gel with black beads which feels warm once rubbed on the skin. It only removed the top layer of my blackheads so I guess it didn’t work on my blackhead-infested nose. I don’t think you can get this in store anymore, though. They might reformulate the product and name it something else.
Nutox Pre-Cleanser: I talked about this makeup remover on my makeup removers showdown post so please check it out if you haven’t already.
Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts about them?
