Hi, beauties, I know I am a bit late with this post as we are already in October but I used up quite a few products this September Hence I am writing this Beauty Empties-September 2018 post. It will consist of the list of products I finished this past month and also mini-reviews of each one. So let us get started!
So let us start with the mini-reviews of beauty empties in the Skincare category:
La shield Sunscreen Gel- This is named a gel but in appearance, it is a creamy lightweight mousse. IT has SPF 40 and retails for Rs.480. It is not exactly cheap but for people with sensitive acne prone skin, it is the best sunscreen. I can say that coz my skin is really problematic and I find it very good for my skin. It is non-oily, does not leave a whitish cast and is fragrance-free, paraben free & preservative free. Buy it from Amazon here
The Face Shop Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam Lemon- I got this last year but stopped using it in between due to excess acne issues. But now my skin is back to normal again and I have been using it for 2 months after removing my makeup. This is an excellent face wash for oily skinned beauties as it cleans your pores and leaves your skin squeaky clean. It retails for Rs. 300 and you can get it from Nykaa here
Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Scrub- I got this scrub to carry on my honeymoon and it has been a great saver. It smells really fresh,exfoliates the skin quite well and also helped me get rid of the tan. The scrub is milder than the Biotique anti-tan scrub which I was using earlier and is milder of the face. It is as cheap as Rs.135 and on discount on Amazon here
Lacto Calamine Daily Face Care Lotion Oil Balance for Combination to Normal Skin- Well no review needed for this one as all of us have seen it since childhood I guess. It is a calamine lotion and I got the wrong one for normal skin but it worked fine. Both the formulas are almost similar. I use it as a base for daily makeup. Get it here
AHA Glow Facewash- This one was actually recommended by the dermat. It has tiny micro beads in a gel formulation which look really cute. These colorful beads melt as they touch your skin. It is a good facewash but the only thing I did not like about it is that it contains sodium laureth sulphate. I do not like chemicals like these to be in my face wash. It is for Rs. 360. You can get it at a medical store or here
Streetwear Color Rich lipstick Spellbound- It is a creamy matte lipstick I got during my college time because it was highly affordable. I love the colour as it is a pretty rose pink which is a perfect kind of every day pink for my complexion. I do not know if it is still available in the market.
Johnson’s baby oil- Well this is a very small b0ttle I got for myself after my Garnier micheller water was tossed at the Bangkok airport as it exceeded the allowed quantity(Sob!!). I got this at a mart in Thailand and it was the only makeup remover that I have been using after getting back from the trip. The cheapest and best makeup Remover ever!!
Colorbar Radiant White UV Fairness Compact Powder- This is a great budget compact powder. I have it in the shade Sandy nude and it sets the makeup really well. It is also great at Mattifying the face and for touch ups. It is for Rs.300 and you can get it from nykaa at a discount here
Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Make Up Remover- This is a great Budget makeup remover from maybelline. Though it claims to be a lip and eye makeup remover but it works really good even all over the face. It comes in a cute plastic bottle with pink details and all you got to do is shake it up before using it. It is available at amazon on a great discount buy here
Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer- This is one of the creamiest concealers in the drugstore section. This drugstore concealer is comparable to the nars radiant creamy concealer. It is for just Rs.475 and can be bought from amazon on discount.
Adidas Pure Lightness Perfumed Deodorant Body Spray for Her- This is a light weight deodorant for women with a
Fresh floral fragrance combined with notes of magnolia and musk. It has a great staying power and not at all irritating to the nose. Buy it here
What will I repurchase:
Now among the beauty empties, the products I will be repurchasing are the face shop face wash, the maybelline fit me concealer, the colorbar compact and the la shield sunscreen gel.
I have already repurchased the himalaya neem scrub, johnson’s baby oil and the lacto calamine lotion(for oily skin).
Next post will be in the wedding series and will be up soon!! Which products did you finish ? Leave in the comments section girls!!
