Skincare and Hair Product Empties #3

Monday, September 7, 2015

Despite it being a while since I last did my empties post, I haven’t actually accumulated many products.  I think besides body care and creams, it’s quite hard to finish many types of cosmetics. As a person who don’t really wear makeup everyday, it’s especially hard for me to finish things like lip sticks and eyeshadows. It’s more likely that I will have thrown them away due to expiration.

Anyhow, moving onto today’s post~

St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion
This is the first spray lotion that I’ve purchased. It sprays evenly and lightly. You do need to rub the product into your skin even after spraying or else you might be left with a white streak of lotion. Since it’s in a spray form, there’s less product in this then the ones in the regular pump bottles. However, I’ve purchased both and I have to say that even under the same scent name, they don’t smell the same. Whereas the spray bottle lotion smells sweet and fresh, the pump bottle lotion smells artificial. Another thing to be careful of is that when you are spraying the lotion, it’s very easy over mist and have some lotion end up on the floor – thus making the floor very slippery.

Innisfree Green Tea Mineral Mist (150ml)
I love this facial spray. It has quite a force, it smells good, and it’s pretty moisturizing for a spray. If you intend to use this while wearing makeup, I highly suggest standing as far away from it as you can OR misting the air and catching it with your face because it sprays out quite a lot and can ruin your makeup if you stand too close.

Mamonde Lotus Micro Facial Foam
This is just a mini size tube that I received in the sample kit. It’s a really gentle cleanser that doesn’t remove much. I use it as a follow up after cleansing oil. 

Hanyul Rice Essential Skin Emulsion
I did a review on this recently. You can find it here.

Innisfree Eco Science Eye Cream
I think this needs no introduction as I have been using this product for ages. I think this might be my 5th bottle.  For the winter and dryer seasons, it’s awesome but for summer seasons, I think it can feel quite heavy. Nonetheless I love using this at night time. It makes a noticeable difference and it’s still my favorite eye cream. (Reviewed here).

Mise En Scene Perfect Serum
Although this product didn’t make my hair shiny as I’ve hoped, it did make my hair very soft. I like to apply this to the roots of my hair when it’s still 60% damp. My hair absorbs the product pretty well and there's no oily residue left over on my hair after it dries.

Ryoe Herbal Anti-Hairloss Shampoo
It took me a really long time to finish this bottle and that’s because half way through I tried other shampoos before coming back and finishing it. Although I usually really like Ryoe hair products, I found this shampoo to be lacking. Even after consistant usage, I feel like I still loose a considerable amount of hair every time I shower. I still have a smaller bottle of this that came with the set and I will probably do a more indepth review on it soon.


  1. I use the Mamonde cleanser as a second step after cleansing with oil, too. I like that a little goes a long way, so my full-size tube is probably gonna last forever. :P
    The Innisfree Eco Science Eye Cream unfortunately didn't do much for me. I think the wrinkles around my eyes are beyond repair haha.

    1. The cleanser doesn't smell too bad either! Which eye cream are you using now?

    2. I switched to Estée Lauder's ANR eye cream, which I liked even less than the Innisfree. Currently, I jumped back to Innisfree while waiting for my shipment from TesterKorea to arrive. I ordered the Too Cool For School Rules Ultra Rich Intensive Firming Eye Cream. No idea how it's going to be, but I'm hopeful!
