March Empties!

Alright, so I didn't end up using up all of these products in March. But I had to accumulate, since it takes me a while to get through products. So technically, these are empties between January - March.

From left to right:
1. My Beauty Diary - Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser
- this was alright. Better than the cleanser I'm using now. Has some beads in it, but didn't clean as well as my Body Shop exfoliator. It smells nice, but really really artificial strawberries. 

2. Skin79 -  Repair Amino-Acid Serum
- a review of this will be coming shortly!

3. The Body Shop - Satsuma Body Butter
- You guys should know by now, how much I love body butters. This was the first body butter scent I had ever tried from TBS. I used to love it. But half way through using it, I got tired of the smell. Started to smell bad to me. I got this free of purchase, but I wouldn't buy it anymore.

4. The Body Shop - Passion Fruit Body Butter 
- you can read my review here 

5. Missha - Super Aqua Anti-trouble Toner
- you can read my review here

6. Oral B - Gum dental floss
- I love this stuff! It's not the regular wax floss, my teeth are too tight for those to fit through. 

7. The Body Shop - Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream
- you can read my review of it here
I definitely liked this. But I have a few other facial creams I have since purchased so I will not be repurchasing this for a while. If you have dry skin, I do recommend you try this. 

I don't usually go through products quickly, so I'm surprised I went through as much as I did. Well this is considered a lot for me anyway. I don't think I'll have a new empties until mid/end of summer. 

What products have you used up this month? Do you plan on repurchasing any of them?

Yesstyle, The Face Shop Skincare Haul

I always have my eye out for things I could try. This usually means buying more than I can use. But I mean, if it's on sale and it intrigues me... chances are I'm buying it. I just can't help it!

I've already incorporated a few of these products into my current skincare routine. I can't wait to write reviews for them!

From left to right:
1. The Face Shop - Mild Cotton Pads
2. The Face Shop - Chia Seed Water Essence
- it's not really an eye cream, more of an eye serum
3. Christian Dior - Hydra Life Pro-Youth Sorbet Creme
- cannot WAIT to use this!
4. The Face Shop - Raspberry Roots Fitting Up Essence
5. Missha - Super Aqua - Ultra Water Full Cream

Yes, I have bought quite a number of The Face Shop items. They recently opened a store in the Toronto Eaton Centre Mall, and every time I'm in Toronto, I always stop by. Now if only they'll open an Etude House and Laneige, I'll be all set! 
Speaking of Laneige, USA Target sells their products! I cannot begin to express my jealousy... come to Canada soon please!
I also need to stop buying face cream. I just started using the Missha one pictured. I still have a day cream I'm in the process of using up. 

Everything was purchased from either Yesstyle or The Face Shop.

Anyway, what have you purchased lately?

Skin79: Repair Amino-Acid Serum Review

Originally, this serum came in a pack of 3. Called The New Turn Therapy Set from Skin79. Which is another Korean skincare company. Yes, I have been going a little nuts with their skincare items. But what can I say, their products are good!

Not to mention, I bought this serum set for the most amazing price!

Shiseido Perfect Rouge - PK 249 Swatch + Review

Over the past couple years, I took a liking to lipsticks. I have a handful I want to purchase but as I don't wear them that often, I've been refraining from purchasing too many at a time. I try to save it for end of my school semesters, so it feels like I'm rewarding myself. And within those few months, try to use up the ones I have.

Back in December, I purchased this Shiseido Perfect Rouge lipstick. The shade is PK 249. It looks like a really bright pink in the photos, but it's a lot less bright when on the lips.

I read a number of reviews, and every review I found was positive.

The Body Shop - Passion Fruit Body Butter Review

Passion Fruit is a limited edition Body butter. So unfortunately, it is no longer available in stores, or else I'd tell you all to go buy one right now! This is by far my new favourite scent at the store.
