Empties: March 2016


Hope you've had a good Easter!

This month's empties is only a small one compared to previous months.



Kiehl's Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion
This bottle of toner lasted me absolutely ages! I really enjoyed using this, as it is refreshing (thanks to the menthol in it) and removes any impurities left on your skin after cleansing. I would only recommend using this via a cotton pad. When I went to the states after Christmas last year, I thought I'd be real clever and pour some into a spray bottle, that way I don't have to bring extra cotton pads. What a mistake that was. Everytime I sprayed my face, my eyes burnt. Lesson learnt.

Etude House Nail Remover
Been raving about this nail polish remover for the longest time, in multiple posts. If you haven't already tried this, get on it! One of the best (if not THE best) nail polish removers ever.

Daiso Makeup Brush Cleaner
I reviewed this brush cleaner not so long ago (read here). To briefly summarise, it's a good cleaner. However, it smells a bit funny and has the consistency of water (i.e. very watery). This makes it quite difficult to clean, unless you pour some into a bowl and dunk your brushes in there to soak/wash. I probably wouldn't repurchase this, as the other variant (Daiso puff and sponge cleaner) is much easier to use, although harder to come by.

Fudge Make-A-Mends Shampoo
I like the smell of this shampoo but found that it didn't do much for my hair (read review here). This shampoo sat in my shower for ages, and I'm so proud of myself for finally finishing it - although one of the reasons why it has taken me so long is because I only wash my hair about twice a week. I wouldn't repurchase this, as it's not suitable for my hair - probably better suited for those with slightly damaged hair.

Clarisonic Brush Head
It's been a while since I last replaced my brush head (4 months, I believe). So may this serve as a gentle reminder to change yours, if you haven't in a while! 
P.S. I don't see much of a difference between the different Clarisonic brush heads, do you?

Gatsby Powdered Oil Clear Paper
This is another one of my highly raved product that has been featured in many empties posts. Best oil blotter sheets EVER. I buy mine in bulk from ebay. Highly recommend these!
Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths
I didn't think much of these cleansing cloths. They were kind of dry and didn't remove all traces of makeup. I would not repurchase.

Wen by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner (sample)
Not going to lie, I'm throwing this sample in this post because my empties list is a little on the low side this month. I thought this conditioner was fairly decent in the moisturizing department, but I can't say I'm a fan of the mint scent. I wouldn't repurchase, as it's not the most moisturising conditioner out there.

What have you emptied this month?
