Empties Post #3: Skincare

I've made a conscious effort to try and finish products instead of letting them go to waste, or having a bathroom overflowing with half-empty bottles. This post is centred around skincare products that I have used up over the past few months.

Clarins Extra-comforting Cleansing Cream


Likes

  • Creamy - I love the luxurious feel of cream cleansers
  • Typical "Clarins" scent
  • Very hydrating and doesn't make my skin feel greasy or stripped

Dislikes

  • None that I can think of

Would I repurchase?

  • Definitely (once I finish my other cleansers)


Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution


Likes

  • Takes off ALL makeup
  • Gentle enough for sensitive skins
  • Best makeup remover by far - I tried other cheaper alternatives but nothing came close to this

Dislikes

  • The price - it went from about R120 to R190-R200 in little over a year

Would I repurchase?

  • Definitely (I'm on my third bottle)


Woolworths Treat Anti-ageing Serum


Likes

  • Well-priced for a serum (about R260)
  • Nice scent
  • Pump bottle

Dislikes

  • Not travel-friendly at all (large bottle)

Would I repurchase?

  • Maybe


The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Serum


Likes

  • Sinks into my skin quickly
  • Soft floral scent
  • It is very affordable
  • Pump bottle
  • Perfect for travel

Dislikes

  • Not sure how much it really does for my skin (is it as good as a R600 serum?)

Would I repurchase?

  • Definitely (I'm on my second bottle)


The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner


Likes

  • It hydrates my skin
  • It is very affordable (especially on The Body Shop promotions)
  • Soft floral scent

Dislikes

  • The texture is a bit syrupy

Would I repurchase?

  • Definitely (I'm busy with my second bottle)


Have you ever used any of these products? Let me know in the comments section.

Until next time!
