Product Empties # 20 : My Lucky Seven

Hello guys! I am now down to my Product Empties #20. Wow, that means a lot of products have been used up and loved definitely.  Let's go straight into my list.

My Product Empties # 20 : My Lucky Seven
1. White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion Serum

It's actually a whitening serum that targets age spots, redness and grayness on the skin. It has white caviar pearls that help with recovering skin's luminosity.
*You can view more information about the product HERE

VERDICT: A perfect skin investment indeed. It does the job directly and is also effective giving you that healthy skin glow.

2. Naturie Skin Conditioner

This is an all-around skin toner that can be both used for the face and body. This is good for brightening and moisturizing too. In addition, it has good ingredients to promote healthy skin cells for that young look.
*You can read more insights about this product HERE

VERDICT: A winner for me. Unfortunately, it's not easily available in the Philippines. Sad. If ever you go to Japan, buy a lot of this and you won't regret it. Trust me.

3. Skinfood Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake

This eyebrow powder creates beautiful and natural looking eyebrows. Its main ingredient is cocoa so we can be guaranteed it's safe to use in the eye area.
*More information and swatches about this product HERE

VERDICT: Yes to this. I use this to fill in my eyebrows. Also, I use this to contour the lines of my nose and contour my forehead and cheeks area. A multi-purpose product indeed. I have to repurchase this soon asap.

4. Aqua Blossom White Effect OLED Cream

This cream contains diamond powders that claim to bring a clear and pure skin from within. It also contains authentic whitening ingredients that promotes a brightening effect immediately.
*Additional insights about this cream can be seen HERE

VERDICT: Surprisingly, this product totally works. I use this on dark spot on my foot to really test this out. Viola, it did whiten it eventually since the dark skin cells really peel off. Interestingly amazing. 

TIP: If you use this on the face, put on a good amount of moisturizer and this OLED Cream to avoid dehydration. These two combination really maximizes the effect.

5. Torriden Banchic Oil Control Powder Mist

I got this product as part of the Dis A Pore box from Althea. It's this tiny green bottle that controls good things inside. Its function is to soothe and calm our pores and skin. It also absorbs excess sebum. Plus, you can use this for oily hair too.

VERDICT: Another winner on this list. Yehey.

6. Maybelline New York Face Studio V-Face Contouring Stick in Dark

This is a powerful combination with a contouring stick on one end and a highlighter in the other. It glides smoothly on the face. It claims to help you achieve 10% slimmer face.

VERDICT: I like this because it's very user friendly. Unfortunately, it isn't long lasting. Quite a good product though and I still recommend it.

7. Piolang  CP-1 Raspberry Treatment Vinegar

This is actually a hair vinegar that has many purposes. You can use this a hair conditioner, to treat flaky dry scalp and a  scalp conditioner. It also makes the hair smooth and shiny too.
You can view more information about this product HERE.

VERDICT: This is always a winner. This is already my third bottle I believe. That's how much I love it actually. A must try for everyone.

There you have it. My list of lucky seven empties and soon to be empty is finished. Do we have similar products that I've mentioned? Let's share and exchange comments then. Till next time.

REVIEW: Shisiedo Medicated Pressed Baby Powder

Hello guys. Here's a quick review and insights about this famous powder from Shisiedo. Its complete name is the Pressed Baby Powder ( Medicated ) version.  The catch? I've read something online that it also helps with oil control and can  be a powder to set makeup. Sounds interesting already.

What's it about?
It's basically a white powder that  is designed to avoid diaper rush  and help protect baby's skin from excessive sweating.

POWDER: It's really fine and powdery smooth.
PACKAGING: It comes in this plastic container but is also lightweight enough to be put inside our handbag. Also, it has a puff which is pretty decent and good quality.
SIZE: 50 g
SCENT & FRAGRANCE: It is pretty neutral. No smell and fragrance whatsoever.
TEXTURE: It can be chalky at first but the powder just melts into the skin ( especially during hot summer days)
COVERAGE: Just very light.

My Overall Thoughts
Well, it's like a love and hate relationship. I love it because it's very cheap and the size really goes a long way. At first, I didn't know how to use this well because it gave this white cast  after I put this on to set my make up. Then, after I used it for several weeks and focusing more on my T-zone and oily areas, then this powder works wonders as it did made my face look decent and oil-free somehow for about 4 to 5 hours or so. Also, it performs better when you apply this with a brush because you can control the amount of the powder you want to use only. Well, it's not bad after all.

There you have it. For those of you looking for a good powder to try, then check this out. Have you tried this already? I wonder about it and let's exchange thoughts my friends.

As always, choose happiness and put your best foot forward all the time.

Simple Micellar Cleansing Wipes

Hello everyone! It's the month of December and that basically means everything gets so busy, parties here there and everywhere happen. I have here a good product recommendation that will surely remove your make-up in as easy as 1, 2 and 3. I kid you not. Let's continue this.

What is it about?
This Micellar Cleansing Wipes from SIMPLE are made with Micellar Water for a thorough yet gentle cleanse. The clever micelles gently lift away make-up, impurities and unclog pores. Skin is left feeling clean, fresh and hydrated without irritation. It's perfect for sensitive skin.

This is how the cleansing wipe looks like.

SIZE: It's a pretty decent size, just enough to cleanse the face and neck completely.

CLOTH: It feels like the softest cloth actually. It feels very mild and gentle on the skin.

  • It has Vitamins B5 and Vitamin E
  • It has no alcohol and no oil either. Meaning it's non drying and non greasy
  • It has no artificial perfume, color and no harsh chemicals 
  • Why? It's just SIMPLE.

My Overall Thoughts
Well, I'm simply blown away with these cleansing wipes. Just love love love how they work effectively and at the same time they still leave a good amount of moisture on the skin. That's what you call a WINNER for all the busy ladies out there.  I highly recommend this to everyone.

I'll just send a special shoutout to LAZADA PH for sending this as my prize. Truly appreciate your kind gesture.

There you have it my friends. Thanks for dropping by. Have you tried these Simple Cleansing Wipes? If yes, I'd love to hear from you guys. Take care and stay lovely.
