The Empties #2: Products I've Used Up

Hello everyone and welcome to the Part 2 of my Empties series. If you haven't checked out my first Empties blog - click here. For those who are new to my blog, The Empties is a blog series where I put on all the products I've used up with details how they worked out on my skin, is it a yay or nay and especially the verdict if I am going to repurchase it or not. 

I've decided to add some body care and more hair care stuff since they are practically beauty essentials as well. Sadly, there's no make up in this batch but I am sure in the next couple of blogs I might add a few since I am almost up with some of my make up + I am also downsizing my make up collection by a lot especially with the lipsticks. So yeah, I hope you can enjoy reading:
Nature Republic Lemon Foot and Nature Peeling Foot Mask
This is around PHP 195.00 ($4.83) I believe. Basically this is one of the foot masks out in the market where you have to put both your feet on in plastic masks kinda thing and let you feet soak up with lemon essence for about 1-2 hours or even longer if you feet really need it. One thing though, the smell is not so winning on this one but still bearable. Haha! It didn't start peeling until the 4th day and it lasted until the 8th day if my memory serves right. Warning though, it is very addictive but don't forcely remove the peeled off skin, let it pull of by itself. This procedure can be done every 3-4 months. I would definitely get this again when I am due in June. 
3M Nexcare Acne Patch Variety Pack
This is around PHP 125.00 ($2.81) When I tell this stuff definitely work, it definitely work. This is a miracle worker to be honest. I put this on the first night I had it then the next day my pimples is completely invisible. The only downside to this one is the lack of size options - some are either too small or too big nothing in between but still manageable. I will definitely get this again when I am done with Nature Republic School Diary Blemish Patch.
Tony Moly Berrianne Whitening Essence
This is PHP 898.00 ($20.18) I believe. You know how I hate the other Berrianne line of Tony Moly that I have put it on Products I Regret Buying because it gave so much acne like there's no tomorrow? I bite the bullet and tried this one because the SA in Tony Moly assured me that it is a lot like a lot better than the other one + I was left with no choice because I only use Whitening Essence, Etude House has none they used to but they phased it out and Nature Republic has but it was quite expensive at that time. 

I got this with 30% off since there was a sale in Tony Moly that's why I decided to get it. Thank the heavens above it is actually really really good, very far off from the other one. It is so refreshing to the skin and ofcourse it brightens up my pigmentation left my the other one. I used this at night only and serves me up really well. I will definitely repurchase this again some time in the future. 
Etude House AC Clinic Intense Red Spot Balm
This is around PHP 600.00 ($13.49) I believe. I was looking for a effective balm spot since some of pigmentations were really stubborn. I was due to some of face masks that day so I decided to hit up Etude House and they are still having the 20% off sale so I was chatting up with the SA, she said this one is a good remedy of spots, she was actually offering to get the whole line but I passed since I have products I am actually using as of the moment so I just got this one. 

AC Clinic Facial Foam is included in the set and it is travel size so it is perfect for carry-ons but I have yet to try that one. In lieu with this product, it actually works but it has a balmy scent so you might want to watch out on that but other than that it works perfectly - tap it on with your spots and it will fade after a couple of days. Definitely on my repurchase list.
Nature Republic Aqua Super Aqua Max Moisture Watery Essence
That was a mouthful. Haha! I believe this is around PHP 595.00 ($13.38) I used this as my day time essence since it only give moisture to your skin and I have my sunscreen on. This works okay but I feel something is missing but I can't really pin it out. There are three variants for this line - Blue is for Oily skin I think? Green is for combination and this one is for Normal skin. I am keen to try the Green one but I think served up its role. So so with the repurchase. 
Cream Silk reSHAPE Nature Nourish Conditioner
This is less than PHP 100.00 ($2.25) I am really a Cream Silk kinda girl. They really brings out the best in my hair but I don't particularly like this one because it gave too much volume in my hair. I want my hair to lay flat as possible since I feel they are more manageable that way unlike if it has more volume plus I rarely style my hair so yeah it doesn't work out for me. Not repurchasing this one.
Dove Advanced Care Ultimate White
I forgot the exact price for this one but it is around PHP 100.00-150.00 mark. I didn't know my underarm is sensitive until I tried using another deodorant and it gave me rashes and itchiness so I hurriedly threw the other deodorant in the bin and bought this one. I don't have a perfect white underarms to be honest - it is one of my insecurities in life but I am working on to get it whiter lol hahaha! Nonetheless, this works wonders - doesn't irritate my skin at all + ever since I started using this, there are days that I can just not put on a deodorant, even with sweat I don't smell at all. Sounds weird right? I will definitely purchase it again, matter fact I am due to get one in a few. 
Beauty Buffet Facial Masks
This is PHP 49.00 ($1.10) and I believe this one of the most cheapest facial masks that exist in the market today - it is sold in Watsons. Korean Face Masks like from Etude House, Tony Moly, Nature Republic and etc are around PHP 55.00 and above mark depending on the skin concern. Even though this is really cheap, they work amazingly in the skin. Watch out though because this is very thin so it breaks easily - one time I ended up ripping two facial masks in one go. Haha! But other than being a thin facial masks, it is all good. I still have a lot in my back ups so no repurchasing for now.
Tony Moly Pureness 100 Mask Sheet
This is around PHP 70.00 ($1.58) I believe. One of my holy grail facial masks to be honest. Hands down, one of the best masks that exist in the market. Thick and really really soft sheet + really comforting in the skin. Will repurchase this over and over again.
SkinWhite Advance Whitening Facial Cleanser
This is around PHP 46.00 ($1.08) - really really cheap but really really effective. I would a lot of bucks with my other skincare regimen but I will remain faithful this toner because it doesn't irritate my skin + really helps clear out some of my black spots right away. This is one of the two non-korean product in my skincare routine. I am due to get this one again in a few.
Likas Papaya Skin Whitening Soap
This is PHP 77.00 ($1.73) I believe. Ahhhh this soap - serves right up my childhood alley. I used to use this a lot when I was a kid then I stopped and I outgrew it but I was in search for a good soap because Gluthamax is really really good (it should be because it is really expensive) but it melts easily so you're left with nothing after 5-6 uses. I realised Likas Papaya is still good as ever but a little pricier now but not as pricier as Gluthamax so I came back home and it didn't disappoint me. Definitely repurchasing it again.

I hope you enjoy reading this kinda thorough blog post about my empties.
See you next time! x
