August 2012 Empties

The last two weeks of August zoomed right past me! I can't believe it is September already!

Don't have too much this month. I have a couple of reviews planned for the items I finished.

CS-Being cotton squares - One of the packs I picked up at Mitsuwa (Haul here) I use these to remove makeup, apply toner, remove nail polish and even to wipe down my laptop screen! They are not as good as the Shiseido ones however at 1/4 the price... I will survive. =)

Shiseido Purness Oil-Control blotting Paper - Got this in a Birchbox a while back. (Post here) I am not impressed with these at all. They remind me of the Bosica Blotting papers. I don't think they remove oil all from skin and I can see the need to go through a few sheets before you are done. I won't be purchasing these and I don't recommend them.

Mopidicks - My brother and his girlfriend hauled a few bottles of this back from their trip in Hong Kong back in 2010. It is used to relieve itchiness from mosquito bites. (Don't know if it has any other uses) I have been having a particularly bad month and finished the bottle. I am halfway through the last bottle we have!! I need to find more of this! It does help with itch relief. Does anyone have any remedies to mosquito bites? I attract mosquitoes like flowers attract bees...

Burt's Bees Outdoor Bug Bite Relief - I got this in a 7-Eleven in Taiwan. I love this stick! It smells lemon-menthol-ish and it does help relieve itch! I can't seem to find it here in the States. The packaging is completely in English which was surprising to me.

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse BB cream SPF 25 PA++ - I got this from a Birchbox (Post here) and I was so excited to try it! I was very underwhelmed. It smells like a sunscreen and it is very sheer coverage. It comes off very dewy on my skin and it didn't apply well on my skin. I felt as if it was moving around a little too much. Would not repurchase or recommend.

L'Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Daily Serum - I got about 3 uses from this little packet. The serum is light and absorbs quickly. Texture wise it is mildly gel like and translucent. It had a perfumed scent that wasn't unpleasant. It didn't linger on the skin however the scent is apparent upon application. I don't feel that this serum hydrating or did felt like anything special. I will not purchase.

Suave Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo - I bought this to take with me to Costa Rica a while back and I absolutely love it! I already repurchased and will do a full review soon.

Kracie Purenavi Cleansing Oil - I finally finished a bottle of cleansing oil!! I purchased this last October I think! I want to do a review on this soon also. I already purchased a new cleansing oil to try and I still have one that will hopefully be finished this month.

That's it for my empties this month. We are only 4 days into September but I have a feeling it is going to be a good empties month. I already have 3 products done! I have a bunch of reviews planned, just have to sit myself down and get typing! hehe



  1. I think the Dr. Jart BB cream isn't supposed to have that much coverage, since it's a "water fuse" but I guess most BB creams are like that. Have you tried the Garnier one? I really like that one! :) xx

    1. I read reviews and it didn't seem to impress me. I will look into the Garnier one some more though ^^ This particular one had no coverage whatsoever which is weird even for a BB cream.

  2. I can send u 無比滴 in our box! :D

  3. ooh i really want to try that dry shampoo, i have their other one but i don't like it :/
    thanks for sharing, now following you!
    hope you stop by sometime!

  4. Not too much? Girl, that's a lot of products you've finished in August!

    I'm intrigued with the dry shampoo... can't wait to read the review! =)
