August 2015 Beauty Empties

Before we get too far into September, I thought I'd take a minute and share some thoughts about the products I finished up during August.

1. Selena: Multi-Layer Cotton Puffs 80 sheets 
I purchased these sheets roughly six months ago with the intention of using them as diy sheet masks. Each sheet peels apart into five super-thin sheets and can be stretched to fit areas of your face better. They worked great, but I honestly kept forgetting to use them since I had dried sheet mask tabs to use already. I ended up using these mostly as cotton pads with my toners. For that reason I probably won't repurchase them.

2. Simple: Micellar Cleansing Water
This was a terrible sample. It was a cotton pad soaked with the cleansing water, which was about the size of a quarter. It seemed to work ok, but I only got to use it on my cheek.
3. Juice Beauty: Green Apple Peel Nightly Brightening Pad
This felt nice on my skin, there was no burning or anything. I can't say after one application if it actually helped brighten my face or not.
4. Welcos: Oriental Rose Shower Gel
This smelled great, and was just enough to enjoy in a shower when lathered up in a puff.

5. A'pieu: NonCo Tea Tree Spot Patch
I love these for healing pimples overnight. I had purchased a pack of 10 of these sheets with 12 patches on each sheet. I think I have two sheets left, and I'll probably purchase a new pack once I get to the last sheet. They work great and are very affordable.
6. Ettang: Propolis Modeling Cup Pack
I love Ettang modeling packs, and was so happy when I found them on sale at Memebox again. This one really brightened and moisturized my face.

7. Real Chemistry: Luminous 3 Minute Peel
This worked surprisingly well on my face for removing dead skin and brightening my skin. It did burn a bit while on, and left my skin a little pink, but it went away quickly.
8. Dr Brandt: Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant
I know manual exfoliants aren't the best for your skin, but I love them. This one contains alcohol so I don't won't purchase it, but I did use the sample anyway because it smells like lemons and makes my skin so super soft it's crazy.
9. Banila Co: Clean It Zero
I actually used up two of these samples in August, but the other container is being used for decanted ampoule. I really enjoy how this feels on my face, how is doesn't make a mess like a regular oil cleanser, and how easily it removes everything.
10. Secret: Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant 
I forget where I got this sample from, but it worked very well, and i would definitely repurchase it.

11. Juice Beauty: Green Apple Peel Sensitive
This was so nice on my face, but it was almost too gentle. I over-used it, like, a lot... because I used the whole jar in a month. But I do feel like each time I used it, it removed a little more dead skin and brightened my face a little more.
12. It's Skin: Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Cream
I got this in a Memebox back in February, and loved it. It wasn't spectacular, but it worked perfectly with my skin. I posted a full about it here.
13. C20: Pure Vitamin C C21.5 Advanced Serum
I liked how this stung a little when I applied it, I felt like it was really working hard on my skin. It left a slightly sticky film on my skin, but it disappeared when I applied something over it. I think this helped clear up my skin, in conjunction with other acids I've been using, but I can't say if it really brightened my dark spots or anything. I am still using AHA and BHA, so I probably won't repurchase this since it's so unstable.

  1. I have a full size of the Simple: Micellar Cleansing Water and I think it's just OK. I have to use quite a few cotton pads to remove all my makeup, and it doesn't remove waterproof mascara. I prefer cleansing oils because I think they're faster and remove everything. :D

  2. Have you tried the C20 serum as well? If so, which do you prefer?

    1. My skin cannot tolerate alcohol, so I've only used the C21.5 as it doesn't contain it. If you can handle alcohol, I know I've heard from several people that the C20 works harder/faster, but C21.5 isn't as sticky and has a better ingredients list.
