January to February 2013 Empties

Like this post if you don't like waste!

Hello Sunshine! I have been MIA with my product empties as I figured, it's better to have a bunch of empties and collect as the weeks pass, than just have a few. I do love reading empties posts because I'm interested to know what other beauty-savvies stuck through til the very end. If you share that same fascination, here are my empties for January-February 2013.

1. Celeteque Brightening Radiance Body Cream with Multibright Complex and SPF 15*- I blogged about this product here, and if my raving isn't enough, then let me do it all over again. I love this Radiance Body Cream. It has a heavenly consistency that is thick enough to satisfy my skin's thirsty decorum, but is light enough to co-habitate with under such a tropical climate!

2. Kerastase Nutritive Bain Oleo Relax Smoothing Shampoo- I must say, when it comes to salon quality hair care, nothing beats Kerastase. Among their many problem-specific ranges, I love Oleo-Relax the most. I have frizzy dry hair, but between the two, it's the frizz that I wish I don't have to live with at all. Smoothing shampoos such as Kerastase' Oleo-Relax relieves my tensed locks and allows them to flow with vibrancy and life, as if they weren't completely damaged by my experimental hair-tittude. Kerastase released a new range made for those who want crystal shiny hair. I blogged about that here.

3. Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum*- to part with Lady Gaga Fame is heavy for me. What I didn't expect about Fame is my utter attachment to it. I guess, the "push and pull" technology doesn't just apply to Fame's unique notes--it's just one scent all the way from top to dry down! Fame pushed me into a daring mindset, a mindset that is brave, comfortable and unique; but at the same time, Fame pulled me into a trance of creativity, restlessness and celebratory regard to all things love. Read more about Fame here.

4. Bvlgari Petits et Mamans Eau de Toilette- this Bvlgari scent is by far the most baby-like perfumes I've tried. It's a fresh from the shower scent. It's a freshly showered baby bum is like. I love how it reminds me of how my little sister, was well little. She's now 14 and I feel like it has been forever since we've had a baby at home... what eases the tension is the illusion of conjuring a baby's sweet laughter through a scent as such. I wouldn't recommend this perfume if you're on a date! But I do recommend this if you want a sweet lullaby tickling your nose.

5. Pevonia Botanica Ligne Speciale Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser*- I love Pevonia products! Every single one of the items I've tried has satisfied me. Beginning with this very exfoliating cleanser (which I use in exfoliating sensitive skin all over my body, like my underarms!), I build a skincare regimen the aims to resolve the war of the beauty worlds. Kidding aside, this gentle exfoliating cleanser is truly legendary. This is the first specialty scrub that I've tried with no qualms, na baka pang-matanda lang dito (maybe this place is for oldies). Pevonia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is the most life-changing facial scrubs that I've tried. I can't wait to get to know more of Pevonia's range!

6. ELF Facial Mist- there was nothing special about this face mist. I don't think it helped keep my makeup together and up, but it was refreshing like any other face mist could be. I technically didn't empty this product. I flushed down half of it.

7. Etude House Aqua Cure Bamboo Water- another refreshing face mist that I got to try sample-sized. I am a fan of Etude House' Aqua Cure line so I was predestined to like this mist.

8. Celeteque Brightening Dark Spot Correcor with Octadecenedioc Melanin Inhibitor and Pigmentation Lightening Complex- I can't believe I used this product up already! I have a very bad scar on my chin and it was this product that helped lighten it. It took quite a while but the lightening results are very evident! If you have a scar, I definitely recommend this. If you have combination skin like I do, read more about my skincare routine using this product here.

9. Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum- it took me a minute shorter than forever to finish the fragrance because I was evasive of the idea of parting from it. I love Coach Poppy Flower because it was the type of floral note that was just impossible not to love!

10. Pharmaclinix Lightenex Plus Extra Strength Skin Lightening Cream- I used this on my underarms but only for a short while as I only used this product after my sister stopped (or completely forgot) to use it. I couldn't bring myself to have it get wasted because I know that this derma-brand is expensive haha It is worth the tag though. The little while that I used this for my underarms, I saw a more even skin on my pits. FYI, this is a whitening face cream. :)
