If you didn’t already know, every time I finish 5 beauty/makeup/skin care products I do a Product Empties post. I don’t repeat products unless it’s some kind of a flavour or colour variation. This time around I don’t have any makeup products.
This is the Simple skincare toner. It is an every day kind of toner. I don’t have sensitive skin and since it is a ‘kind to skin’ it doesn’t really impact my skin that much. If you do have sensitive skin, you ought to give this product a try. Simple is probably one of the most affordable skin care brands at the drugstores in Malaysia. This retails for MYR 17.90 and you can definitely buy it at a cheaper price! Won’t be repurchasing this just because I do want to give other products a try.
This is another Simple product; it is the moisturiser. The problem I had with this is, if I am going out and I am using this moisturiser, my face tends to become very oily. I later switched to applying it before going to bed and when I wake up in the morning my skin does feel a little softer. This retails for MYR 17.90 as well and again, you can definitely buy it at a cheaper price. Won’t be repurchasing this just because I do want to give other products a try.
This is the Etude House hand cream that I shared in a previous post here. They are really nice. Smells pleasant but not too overpowering, absorbs well and feels good on the hands. It retails for MYR 23 but I bought on sale for MYR 10. Will definitely repurchase but only when discounts are offered in the future.
This is the Montagne Jeunesse (now known as 7th Heaven) face mask which I also featured in the previous Product Empties post here. I prefer the previous one to this one but this one smells better. It didn’t really have a profound effect as the previous one did. I got this from Colours Cosmetics Malaysia but they are apparently available at Watsons and retails for MYR 6.90. I may purchase another one or two different flavours in the future!
I featured this in a haul post here. This is a men’s fragrance and it is a local brand available at Watsons. The scent it pretty strong and masculine (forgive me but I am horrible at describing scents). 100ml is plenty and it lasted me longer than I thought it would. It cost only MYR 13.30 and again, like everything at the drugstore, you can most definitely get it for a discount. The only downside is that it does not last on me. 2-3 hours is the most it seems to stick on me. I doubt I’ll repurchase this.
Third product empties already? Anyway I would like to mention that my product empties wouldn’t feature repeats. This time around there is one hair product and I guess it would fall in the category of beauty products too. 😀
This is a hand cream and yes, like the name says, it has actual snail extract in it! However, it didn’t smell bad, in fact, it was actually pleasant. This is the Snail Hand Cream from a Korean brand called 3W Clinic. It is moisturising, it absorbs pretty well into the skin, it does not feel sticky or oily and it helped reduce flakiness on my hand skin. The problem is, I got this as a gift for entering a makeup contest by Colours Cosmetics Malaysia and I really don’t know how to purchase this besides the website. If there’s a store in Malaysia that sells this then I am not aware of it. Repurchase? Perhaps not.
This is the Silkygirl Lash Prism mascara. It is a favourite of mine and has been for quite a while. I did a review on it here. It is cheap, it does well (as long as excess product is removed from the wand before application), and it is very easily found because Silkygirl counters are everywhere here in Malaysia! Repurchase? I actually stocked on this during a promotion. I already have 2 unopened ones!
A leave-in hair moisturiser called the Sunsilk Instant Damage Reconstruction Cream. It’s ok and I do feel that my hair becomes softer and a tad bit stronger (but I do have pretty thick hair so maybe it’s all in my head?). However, it did feel sticky in my hair. Hair felt best after a wash. Would I re-purchase? Probably if there was a discount or promotion (it retails for MYR 8.90).
I used to love occasional ‘me’ time and I used to buy sheet masks and store them in the refrigerator before using them while relaxing over a cup of tea. Somehow that made a comeback into my routine a few days ago after a couple of years due to this face mask. Like the Snail Hand Cream this was a gift for joining the makeup contest (yes, I got a few good stuff via that contest from Colours Cosmetics Malaysia). It is the Montagne Jeunesse trial size face mask and this in particular is the Dead Sea Mud Pac mask. It is a product from the UK and they have recently (in 2015) changed the brand name to 7th Heaven. I was kinda surprised after having used this. My face felt incredibly smooth to the touch after washing it off! It contains kelp, seaweed and nutrient rich mineral from the dead sea (how about that!). Don’t be alarmed, it actually smells really good! They do have a website (link here) and in Malaysia, it could be purchased from Colours Cosmetics Malaysia. I have one more called Strawberry Souffle to try and I’ll write about it in a future product empties post.
This is the Chu Lip lip balm. I have done a first impressions post here and a review on it here. It is amazing not just because it looks cute but because it worked really well on my dry lips! If you did read the review then you’d know I already have another one waiting! It retails for MYR 25.90 at Watsons and Guardian but do look out for discounts which can bring the price down to as low as MYR 17.00.
