Running on Empty

Conveniently finishing up a round of products almost simultaneously! This is the second round of empties that I've attempted doing lately because I misplaced my first bag of empty packaging and was rummaging around bathroom and bedroom and wailed to boyfriend and sister about losing what is essentially a bag of trash that I had been meaning to blog about.

The Body Shop Jolly Orange Body Butter
This has taken way too long to use up. While I like the richness of the TBS body butters, I'm not a fan of this now-discontinued scent, and I'm using other body lotions at the moment that are just as effective.

Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF50+
My favourite facial sunscreen for quite some time now. It's an Asia-only exclusive and I did procure a backup bottle but my sister took it on holiday with her and lost it. On the lookout for a new favourite facial sunscreen so I'm using deluxe samples of sunscreen to test some out.

Moroccanoil treatment
Sad to see this go- I love the way this product makes my hair feel and look healthier, smoother and glossier. I don't find I need it as often these days because I'm trialing a new shampoo and conditioner in conjunction with products I have in my stocks like masks and serums so I won't repurchase but it's a product I'd recommend.

Benzac AC 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Water Based Acne Gel
My go-to solution for bouts of spotty skin that the Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion can't handle. It's non-drying and effective but it does bleach towels and clothes if the fingers used to apply it aren't thoroughly washed. I'd probably repurchase if my skin starts acting up.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
I like this as a budget micellar water, but it's not a certain repurchase. It doesn't take off my waterproof mascara, so I'll look into cleansing oils or return to the Garnier 2 in 1 Make Up Remover (blue and white bi-phase in the old packaging) for the level of effectiveness that my mascara and eyeliner require.

La Roche-Posay Sensi White Essence
My favourite pimple-scar-eradicating product at the moment. Posted about this and what I bought to replace it here.

Dove Summer Glow for normal to dark skin
I like everything about this apart from the smell, which I assume is the telltale self-tanner stench but it did convince me that gradual tanner body moisturisers have their merits so it's something I'd probably revisit in the future.

Posted about this in my latest monthly favourites post- good simple moisturiser for face and body. Wouldn't repurchase because it's difficult to source and too costly for a basic moisturiser.
