It’s been a hot minute since my last empties post, but I didn’t really take that long to finish these products. I just waited ’till I had a few items to write about.
Anyway, let’s get on to the mini-reviews.
Garnier Milky Lightening Dew Toner
I bought this in hopes that it would help in diminishing some of my acne scars. I loved using it at first because it was really hydrating. It was novel to me since all the toners I used in the past seemed to suck out all the moisture from my skin. It did nothing for my spots, though. And when I finished using it up, I stopped getting breakouts. I still do get a pimple or two or three whenever that time of the month comes, though. But this toner apparently broke me out, so I’m definitely not getting another bottle.
Myra-E Daily Moisturizer
I know I should branch out and try new things, but I really like this moisturizer for daytime. It’s lightweight. It does the job. And it’s affordable. But since I’ve promised myself that I would pay more attention to my skin starting this year, I’ll be scouting for a better moisturizer.
Human Nature Sunflower Oil
I’ve tried this before but it went rancid really quick, so I wasn’t able to use it much. This time, though, I finished up the bottle. But I still don’t know how I feel about it. I bought it to use before bed, in conjunction with my moisturizer. It was great at hydrating my skin, but it gave me tiny bumps. So, I discontinued using it on my face and started using it elsewhere. I read a lot of reviews saying it’s good at lightening the armpits, so I gave it a go in that area. I didn’t notice a big difference, partly because there were days when I forgot to use it. But during the time that I managed to put it on, my underarms felt smoother than they normally are. I also tried using this for my hair but I didn’t really notice a difference.
So, am I gonna pick another bottle up? Probably. I refuse to believe that this doesn’t do what it claims because I’m all about supporting Filipino and organic brands and this happens to fall under both categories. But I don’t know, maybe I’m fooling myself. Maybe I’ll change my mind. We’ll see.
Nichido Eyebrow Pencil
So, I didn’t exactly empty it because it doesn’t have a container. But it still counts! What I liked most about the pencil is its color. It’s a bit creamy for my liking. I prefer brow products that have just the right amount of waxy and creamy. I won’t re-purchase because I’m actually thinking of venturing out of the drugstore. I still won’t cross the high-end mark, though. I’m much too kuripot (thrifty) for that.
