Beauty products used up in December 2013
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you had a blast last evening. May 2014 be far better than 2013, each day bringing more happiness than the previous one.
Since I travelled in December, I have two sets of empties - products used up during my trip, and a second set that I used at home. I also managed to finish up a primer for the first time.

Here are the makeup and skin/hair care products used up last month.


Travel beauty products used up:
  1. Wet wipes: I run through these anyway, but accidentally put the packet along with the other empties in the photograph
  2. Max Clinic Night Massage Oil Foam: From my Wishbox 15. One of the best makeup removers I've ever used, better than Bioderma. Yes, I mean that. I'll do a detailed review of this magic product soon.
  3. Eau Thermal Avene moisturiser: I got this as a sample when I bought the Foreo Luna from the Gulf trip. I ran out of body moisturiser and didn't want to open any of the tubes I bought, so I finished this first!
  4. Bourjois Flower Perfection Primer, reviewed here: My favourite drugstore primer. I call it as good as Time Balm, second only to Porefessional. It holds my makeup in place through the day and keeps oil at bay. What more do I want? I've already repurchased!
  5. Shiseido Benefiance Eye Cream: Saw me through the trip, but didn't do much for my dry undereye area. Will not purchase.
  6. Garnier Ambre Soleil SPF30: From my Glam Guru box #5. This was well-used, since the desert sun was blazing, despite the cold weather! Weird climate!
  7. Senscience Silk Moisture Shampoo: From my July Glam Guru Box. I loved this, surprisingly. But there are quite a few shampoos to finish, so will not repurchase.
  8. Keri Sensitive Skin Body Lotion: Travel-sized, so fit into my case nicely. Did a decent job hydrating all over, but not as good as Soap & Glory. Will not repurchase.
  9. Dior Higher Energy Eau de Toilette: I prefer taking vials along while travelling. This perfume certainly wasn't me, but I've finished it up now. Will not repurchase.
  10. Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomille Deep Cleansing Cream, reviewed here: Love this! I've already purchased the full size! Read the review to know why this is such a good cleanser, especially when combined with the Konjac sponge.Beauty products used up in December 2013

 And now for the beauty products I used up before my trip:

  1. Nature Republic Blackhead Break nose strip: Free from one of my Korean hauls. Didn't do anything for me.
  2. Annie's Way Jelly Mask: From my October Glamabox. A great product; loved it! Will review in detail soon.
  3. Secret Key Secret Diary Sheet Mask: Another freebie from the Korean haul. This one contained enough serum for an all-over moisturising! Really liked it!
  4. Sephora Power Mask for eyes: Claims to remove wrinkles around the eye area but didn't make a rat's tail of a difference. Will not repurchase.
  5. Naisture Collagen sheet mask: From A Beautiful World Christmas box. There are five more left and I love them because of how much they hydrate my skin.
  6. Amore Pacific Enzyme Treatment Peel: A very interesting product I got from my friend Shivani. There's enough in the vial for four uses. This is a very fine powder that you mix with water to form a paste, and then rub on your face, for great exfoliation. I have another vial left.
  7. Shiseido Sun Protection Lotion SPF 50: I love this sunscreen and have the full size.
  8. Skinmiso Pore Treatment Pack: This was from my Wishbox 14 and was part of a pore treatment set, with part II behind part I. Part III is a primer that I haven't finished yet.
  9. Lush Karma Bath Bar: I loved the orange colours from this. I have loads of bath bars to finish, so will not repurchase right now.
  10. Max Clinic Night Massage Oil Foam
  11. Alcone Make Off wet wipe: From my October Lip Factory Box. A decent wipe that annihilated makeup in a swipe, nothing special.

  4. U bought the foreo? How is it?
    Somehow I can never manage to keep all the empties to take pics of them all together. And sachets and travel sizes while travelling, no way :p. Btw, u have to keep me informed when the next A beautiful world box comes out.

    1. You can sign up to be notified on the website, that's the best way to avoid delay and sell-out. I've done just that, so you'll know as soon as they send out the email.

  6. It's not just me then? Nose strips never do anything for me! Have you ever tried any that have worked?
