Recent Empties # 1

I have seen many YouTube videos and blog posts recently that center around the theme of Recent Empties where you show products that you've used up along with a mini review of them and whether you like them enough to repurchase it again. Here's my attempt at it :)


FACE STUFF-

1. OXY Blackhead Clearing Wash-This is basically a scrub and I loved using it! It really did keep my blemishes and un-wanted pimples along with un-sightly blackheads at bay and I'm gutted that it's finished since I got this as a present from someone who came from Malaysia and won't be able to get my hands on it here :(  I would definitely repurchase it if I saw it at my local drug stores.

2.St. Ives Daily Micro Dermabrasion-LOVE this stuff! The granules are really finely milled and are just the right texture, not too rough, not too gentle and it is hands down the best face scrub I've used for my oily skin. Beware though, if the scrub gets in your eyes somehow you will be crying for the entire night! ( I speak from experience ). Definitely repurchasing this! And it is soo much better than the St Ives Apricot Scrub in my opinion.

3. GNC Aloe Vera Skin Gel-Love this stuff as a moisturizer under my sun block in the summers! Cools the skin down like anything, extremely light weight and an intense moisturizer although it doesn't feel like it. This has a high percentage of natural Aloe Vera and that's always an added bonus for de-hydrated skin. I would probably purchase it again for next summers.


PERFUMES-

1.Versace Bright Crystal-A perfect light-weight fragrance for summers! Sweet and flowery, although it might not be too everyone's taste as it can be a bit too sweet at times. The lasting power is phenomenal. I really loved using it but I won't be repurchasing since I have other perfumes that I wanna finish.

2. Saeed Ghani Alcohol Free Oil Based Perfume in Femme (Hugo Boss)-I love the regular Femme by Hugo Boss. Probably one of my all time favorite scents, it is such a classic for young women so I was immediately drawn to this non-alcoholic version that was supposed to last an entire day. It really does! Just roll on some of it on your wrists and this will keep you smelling fresh for the entire day and since it's only PKR 300, I can't wait to try out other scents that they do! Seriously everyone go and grab one on my recommendation, you won't regret it!


LOTIONS AND POTIONS

1. The Body Shop Body Lotion in Watermelon Pasteque-Loved this for the summers since it's extremely light and easily sinks into the skin BUT I would absolutely hate it for the winters since it seems to be water based and is really runny. It won't be able to provide enough moisture for the winters and I won't repurchase it again since there are many other body lotions out there for half the price that do the same thing.

2. Vaseline Aloe Fresh Hydrating Body Lotion-Holy grail body lotion. I put it everywhere, on my body and on my face at night. The scent is fresh and clean and it provides the perfect amount of moisture. I have already re purchased a bottle since it ran out and I can see myself doing that for a while to come.

So what do you guys think of posts like this? Would you be interested? Even though it is kinda long. Let me know in the comments below :)

Until next time, tc.
