Empties #4


I'm experimenting on different flat lay backgrounds, so I'm sorry if this is a different set up than my usual empties post. Ok, I lied. When I was doing this photoshoot, my studio was cluttered with new makeup so I had to take photos of products on the floor lol. 

Empties #4


CARE STRENGTH SHIELD NAIL POLISH REMOVER by CUTEX 

Smells nice. Lasts a long time. Only $3-4. A must repurchase for a nail polish addict like me. 
Contains Vitamins E, B5, and Hyrdolized Silk. 


repurchase? [ yes  ] |  no  

Empties #4

COTTON PUFF 90 PCS  from DAISO

 Repurchase. Yes. Super soft and thin. Can be used as toner masks. If you’re into that. I know there’s an even thinner cotton square made by Wish Trend but I haven’t gotten the chance to try it yet. 


repurchase? [ yes  ] |  no

  WATER BANK MOISTURE CREAM  by LANEIGE

 Going to repurchase as soon as I finish the last travel-size chemical exfoliant I have that is also from Laneige. Really, really, beautiful fragrance. 


repurchase? [ yes  ] |  no

  WATER BANK HYRDRO-ESSENCE  by LANEIGE

Maybe. It’s nice for a day cream because it’s very light. Really like the water bank moisture cream more though.

  HERB DAY 365 CLEANSING FOAM IN PEACH by THE FACE SHOP

This was in my last empties because it was nearly finished. But in this Empties, it’s really finished. Didn’t have the heart to cut it in half though. So I was content with not being able to squeeze out anymore product and try a new cleanser with a different ingredient. Very cheap. For $5 it lasts about 1 and a half year. That’s a really good deal. 


repurchase? yes  |  no   | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  ORGANIC BARLEY BISCUITS  by OXBOW

Our rabbit seem to really like this. It’s very cute and it’s in a heart shape. Might wait until I finish rotating fresh treats like carrots, apples, and cilantro before I repurchase it again as it is expensive, around $14 for quite a small bag. 


repurchase? yes  |  no   | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  PINK CLAW CLIP $1  from  AMAZON


Lived out it’s life. I tried fixing it but the little wire or screw just won’t stay in place anymore. Was nice because it grabbed all of my long hair out of the way during hot, summer days. Tends to break if you open it wide. Not sure if it is worth the repurchase yet. 


repurchase? yes  |  no   | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  MOISTURIZING CREAM CLEANSER  from  LANEIGE


Was nice. Liked the travel size packaging. Don’t like the full size packaging because it has flowers. Not sure if this one’s a repurchase either. Not unless, I buy the whole set again for traveling. 


repurchase? yes  |  no   | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  COTTON PUFF 150 PCS from  DAISO


  I kind of like the ones that came in boxes a little more because even though single box has only 90 pcs, they do sell them in pairs. And that’s 180 pcs total for the same price, $1.75 


repurchase? yes  |  no   | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  Kikumasamune High Moist  Sake Lotion  from  AMAZON


This has become available in a couple of Japanese cosmetic places near my area, but I feel like they charge more for imports, while Amazon keeps it at a low price of $13. I’ve decanted this in a smaller bottle and I already have the back up but that smaller portion left is gonna be used up soon as it is already winter and my skin becomes really dry and I use this as my face lotion as well as my body lotion. I don’t like regular lotions. It’s too heavy for me and it takes a while to soak in. 


repurchase? [ yes ] |  no   | maybe

Empties #4

  POCKET BUNNY MOIST AND SLEEK MIST  from  TONY MOLY

  Wish I could’ve kept the bottle. But the bottle is designed in a way where you can’t even get the last drop. So if I keep  the cute packaging, something might start growing in there lol. Anyway, this was really fun to try while I was getting into Korean skincare three years ago. I remember it being a light floral fragrance and was really nice to carry around for a refreshing feeling every time I went outside to play Pokemon Go during the summer. 


repurchase? yes |  [ no ]   | maybe

PERFECT UV SUNSCREEN SPF 50  from  ANESSA SHISEIDO

My first luxury sunscreen. Was really lovely to use. Not sure if I want to get it again, because sunscreens and cleansers are one of the items that gets used up a lot by me and the easiest for me to empty and pan. So when that happens, I tend to want to try a new product in the market. 


repurchase? yes |  no    | [ maybe ]

Peach hand cream  from  TONY MOLY

Keeping it for the packaging. I don’t care if it looks like a nipple or a butt. Smelled lovely. Not sure if I am going to repurchase yet because as I have said before, cleansers, sunscreens, and hand creams are things I get through faster, so once I’m done with these products, I tend to want to try something new. 


repurchase? yes |  no    | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  FACE BLUR SPF 33 PA++   from  ETUDE HOUSE 


My very first primer? I didn’t use it before the best by date so when I started using it more than it’s life span, it became very clumpy and made me stop using primer all together. However, when I used this to prime my face when I first go it, I felt like a princess. Not sure if I’m gonna get it again. Because I’ve been eye-ing the No Poreblem primer for a while now. 

repurchase? yes |  no    | [ maybe ]

  CAMELLIA PETAL PERFUMED HAND CREAM  from MAMONDE

As lovely as this smells, it’s more of a spring / summer hand lotion. It just does not withstand winter. My Aesop Resurrection can banish dry, cracked, bleeding hands. But this guy is just here for the scent and the soft feeling lasts for 5 minutes before you can see your ashy hands again. I did really enjoy the scent, so maybe. 

repurchase? yes |  no    | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  SALONPAS LIDOCAINE 4% 

I like the small, regular ones better. This felt really slimy to apply.  It’s not wet. But the pad itself felt wobbly like a wet noodle. But very good for when you’re back is aching for no reason. 

repurchase? yes |  no    | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  WATER BANK MOISTURE CREAM  from LANEIGE 

Got this in my Allure Beauty Box. For some reason, this isn’t as good as it is inside the glass jar that can be found in the travel size. The glass jar just preserved the amazing scent so much better. 

repurchase? yes |  no    | [ maybe ]

Empties #4

  JEJU VOLCANIC LAVA  from THE FACE SHOP 

Was really looking forward to using a mud mask. Because I’ve been missing using one. However, this came in expired and I didn’t get a refund so now it’s going straight to the trash. Wish I didn’t have to toss it, but I have to. 

repurchase? yes |  [ no ]   |  maybe

  NO DROUGHT DRY SHAMPOO  from LUSH

I’m very wary of keeping LUSH in my drawer longer than a year. Organic brands just tend to expire faster. If I don’t use it up, it’s probably not safe to keep it around as their preservatives are probably formulated different than standard dry shampoos. So for safety reasons, I’m going to have to toss this product. I’ve had it for a couple of years, and I’ve barely made a dent. If you put the product upright, you’ll see I’ve scraped off the top and it dips below the top of the label sticker.  

repurchase? yes |  [ no ]   |  maybe 

Empties #4

  LAVENDER ORGANIC HAND SANITIZER  from DR. BRONNER’S  

Actually already finished this a long time ago. Bought several bottles at the Vitamin Shoppe because I was a germophobic back then. I still am, but not as extreme. I filled it up with something else. And I forgot about it so, I’m not sure what’s in there. So this one’s going to be a toss as well. 

repurchase? yes |  [ no ]   |  maybe

  CHARCOAL PEEL OFF  MASK from DAISO

Big disappointment. This one was also in my Current Misses Post. Just had to feature it here again because it needs to be tossed like an empty. Scent was really rancid. I don’t know why. 

repurchase? yes |  [ no ]   |  maybe 

Empties #4

  DADDY-O SHAMPOO  from LUSH

If this isn’t in my Declutter post, I apologize. I meant to put that there. But that post was more of a part II of the whole empty + toss series. This product was really great. Didn’t think my hair needed a lot of toning. Really enjoyed the scent. It’s all sort of dried up in there because I tried another shampoo before I could finish the last drop. But it’s all the way at the very bottom so I’m not feeling too bad. Also, these plastic bottles are very hard to squeeze compared to any other regular shampoo bottles. 

repurchase? yes |  [ no ]   |  maybe 

Empties #4

  AMERICAN CREAM CONDITIONER  from LUSH

This one, I feel really guilty about. Three years ago, I changed my hair color constantly so I never got to finish this bottle and now it’s all hard and caked up. Hair was very fragile at the time, so I had to switch to Joico for everything. As this would have only worked with me as a brunette or natural black hair. 

repurchase? yes |  [ no ]   |  maybe 

Empties #4

  REHAB SHAMPOO  from LUSH

I love the names that LUSH comes up with. This one was also good for when I was a brunette, but not when I became blonde. 

repurchase? yes |  [ no ]   |  maybe

  PILL DICKLE CHIPS  from PRINGLES 

I get this every time I’m on my period. It’s so good. 

repurchase? [ yes ] |   no    |  maybe

  HI-CHEW  from MORINAGA // DAISO 

I also get this every time I’m on my period. It’s gooood. 

repurchase? [ yes ] |   no    |  maybe 

Empties #4

  SALONPAS  // 20 pcs 

I also get this every time I’m on my period. It’s gooood for merciless  pain inflicted by your ovaries. 

repurchase? [ yes ] |   no    |  maybe

  PUREAL GREEN APPLE SOUR GUMMIES from DAISO

Period needs. Put this on your monthly care basket. It’s a must.
