Empties + Mini Reviews

by - 3/07/2015

I don't think I've ever done an empties post before. Anyway, since I haven't blogged much last year, I have used up some products that I had every intention of reviewing but now I couldn't remember much of the details I wanted to go into. So I'll just make a mini review for each of these things.

Olay Total Effects Intense Moisture Face & Body Wash
Promises 7 benefits for younger looking skin:

  1. Deeply nourishes
  2. Softens skin
  3. Evens skin tone
  4. Improves bounciness
  5. Smoothens rough skin
  6. Brightens to revive tired skin
  7. Minimizes the appearance of fine lines

I enjoyed using this face and body wash especially when I travel because I don't have to bring a separate product to wash my face with. I have noticed that my skin has been more supple when I used this. What I don't like about this is it's difficult to rinse off (something I hate with cleansers) as it leaves a "moisturizing" residue on my skin. My sister also complains that it doesn't smell nice although I have no problem with it.

Kojie-san Cleanser + Toner Dual Action
I admit, my night routine isn't as similar as most routines I've watched or read online. I always wash my face whenever I get home, whatever time that is, let's say 7pm. But I don't follow up with toner and moisturizer right after. I would still have to prep for dinner, and eat, so I wait till I'm ready for bed before I put on the other stuff. Let's say I go to sleep at 1am. So I have accumulated some dirt and grease during that 6 hours of being at home.

That's where this Kojie-san cleanser and toner comes in handy. It's cleansing and toning at the same time so I don't have to wash my face again. :)

Another thing I like about it is that it doesn't sting my eyes unlike some other toners I've tried that seems like I'm applying rubbing alcohol on my face. This toner is gentle and it does clean properly.

Kensington Ablution Shower Gel in Wispy Jasmine
I bought this together with Fresh Waters of the Valley and made a review on that one while I was using it. This variant (Wispy Jasmine) differs from that one because it suds really well. Although I don't notice much difference in my skin. Just a typical shower gel that smells nice I guess.

Watsons Naturals Olive Hair Mask
The Naturals line from Watsons boasts of using more organic and natural ingredients and being paraben free. That is actually one of the reasons I picked out this mask, aside from it containing olive oil, because I've heard olive oil is good for the hair and I just want to my hair look better (don't we all?) :) This hair mask is good, although I guess I had very high expectations that wasn't met. So I'm moving on. I'm going to try the argan oil variant next.

Garnier Light Complete Night Restore
This is a repurchase but this time I took my time to finish a tube. I only use this on my spots to lighten them and it really works well. I have made a more detailed review the first time I purchased this.

Myra Vita Quench Dry Skin Lotion
This lotion contains Vitamin E beads which was nice to apply because it feels like exfoliating but the beads gets dissolved and absorbed into the skin. The lotion though was a bit thick for my taste and leaves a residue on my palms especially when I sweat. I do like the scent of this though.

That's all I can say and remember about these products. I still have a lot more to review. Lol. Another downside for taking a long hiatus. :D

I hope you enjoyed my post. Have a nice day.
