Empties #1



I’ve talked about this product in my morning and evening skincare regime. You can check that post [here]. Overall enjoyed using this product. I like the mild powdery scent and the minimal packaging design. parts that I didn’t enjoy so much are: 

x The white packaging that easily gets dirty - my blue nail polish actually left a mark at the front + the sticker at the back was falling apart and the dirty, sticky bits  part was a pain to take off (Tip: soak it in olive oil for 3 hours and try removing sticker again) 
x The price for the length of time the product lasts - $16 for 3-4 months of use just doesn’t seem to be worth it. I’ve tried Japanese cleansers that are way cheaper  ($5) and lasts for at least 6 months. 
x Doesn’t remove my eye make up completely: I would have to go in with my toner and cotton pad to clean up mascaras and eyeliners that the foam cleanser missed.

I purchased this at Ulta at their k-beauty section. If you’re looking to try something new for your skincare routine to change it up a bit or you just like the simple packaging, then of course, you should go for it. I just grabbed this because I was running out of my old foam cleanser and could not be bothered to drive to the other side of town. 

repurchase? yes |   [ no ] 


I liked this product as a toner, but i wouldn’t recommend it as a substitute for micellar water or make up wipes. I tried this when i was too lazy to remove my make up and just go straight to bed, but a couple of days later, I ended up having mini break outs in doing that. So I highly suggest using this for taking off make up residue, but not as your sole cleanser on lazy days. I think this one cost me about $14 and lasted about 3 months as well. I’ve had another toner that lasted for a little bit over a year by Soo Ae and it only cost me $6 from walmart. 

I did enjoy the peach scent and it’s anti-oxidant properties as well as the cute clear packaging with its peachy accent. But I don’t think I’ll be able to try this again because of the price. If it does go on sale, I might add it to my cart again. But for now, I won’t be repurchasing. 

repurchase? yes |   [ no ] 



Since I'm in my mid-twenties now, i rarely get break outs. But once a year, mother acne bestows a giant zit on my face on a completely random month and it takes about a couple of weeks before it completely goes away. I was lucky to put this product to the test when I had this giant zit that popped out of nowhere on my cheeks. I woke up the next day, and the zit was gone! GONE! It didn’t shrink like how I expected it to but it went a level beyond that! It didn’t even claim anywhere that it had that kind of magical power! It claimed to be ‘intensive’ and ‘skin friendly’ with ‘excellent effects’ and I 100% believe them. If i am ever on a beauty emergency situation,  like developing an unwanted zit before date night or any other important event, this is definitely the cheat product I am going to pick up! 

I bought this at Ulta online for $5 to get free shipping, for a Makeup Revolution haul I did last year, and while I did like the immediate results it gave me, I still think it’s too expensive for the budget I’ve set aside for my beauty purchases. My go-to sheet masks are always Lululun and those cost me $8 for 7 sheets that I can spread for a couple of months if I do masks weekly. This could easily cost me $20 just for one month. For now, I’d prefer to pick it up on occasions that I do need it. 

repurchase? yes |   no   |   [ maybe ]  

Would really appreciate it if you help me grow and would hit the follow button! Thank you xx!
