✔✔ Product Empties ✔✔

       Hello! Today I will sharing to you my product empties, finally. Haha! I'm proud to show the stuff that I have used up over the months. I have collected this for a while in this blue shopping bag that was given by Banco de Oro, a local bank, together with the Rewards Card they sent me. Anyways, most of these are skincare stuff because they are the ones I use on a daily basis. Majority of these are from the drugstore. You can find a lot of precious find on the drugstore if you have the perseverance and being keen on reading on the ingredients, I don't wear makeup everyday, but I have hit pan on some items that I will be blogging soon. :)


       Head and Shoulders. I have gone through bottles and sachets over the years of this anti-dandruff shampoo. This has been my holy grail hair care ever, I have repurchased this over and over again. I have tried their other lines, like the menthol, smooth and silky, intensive care and others. As I have said before, this is the only brand that doesn't make my hair itchy. The Apple Fresh smells really sweet, I wanna eat it.  The Anti-hairfall is okay, I didn't notice any significant difference when I was using it. Right now, I am using a different shampoo and I'm gonna stick to it for a while. As much as I hate to admit this, but I don't think I will be repurchasing H&S again because it contains chemicals which are harmful for the health. I'm talking about sulfates and other stuff. Most shampoos do contain them. :(

       Mondes Professional Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Masque. When I bought this, I was so excited because I finally found a hair care item with Argan Oil that isn't expensive at all. I got this on sale last November for 99 Pesos. The product itself is okay, the smell is good, consistency is thick and it has tiny orange scrub-like kernels. I haven't seen any significant difference on my hair when I was using this. I wouldn't repurchase this because it has parabens and other harmful chemicals. I'm sorry to those who like this product. :)

        Myra VitaWhite Whitening Hand and Body Lotion. The only lotion that I have repurchased 2 times in a row. It does lighten my skin, giving me that fair healthy glow all over. I get compliments with this product. What's different with this from other whitening stuff is that it's infused with a handful of Vitamin E, which is known to beautify the skin. I cannot put into words how much I love this lotion. It's great for everyday use, but it only has SPF 15. Anyhow, it still rocks! Yes, I would repurchase this. 


        Dove Damage Therapy Curl and Sculpt Defining Mousse. This hair mousse is the best thing ever. It does what it claims, not stiff nor sticky. It gives my hair a little bit shine and it holds all day long. I've used this until its very last drop. That is how much I love this rock star. \m/ I got this from Puregold Duty Free in Tarlac. I would definitely repurchase this, but our local grocery stores and Watsons dot sell this. Why oh why?


            Glam Works Charcoal Nose Pore Strips. This is one of those average drugstore nose pore strips.This removes blackheads on surface of my skin, but I don't like it's really digging deep. The black strips sticks on the skin if it isn't being wet enough. This is really annoying. I'm not going to buy this one again. 


              Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth Deodorant in Nature Fresh. I love the fact that this deodorant is indeed stubble free for a longer time. When the hair grows back, it can be easily removed because it's thin and the roots have softened. But, I don't think this is anti-perspirant because I sweat on the afternoon when I was using this product. It annoys me a lot. I don't want to repurchase this. Sorry, again. :)


             A Little Romance Body Mist. Hands down. This is by far the best body mist that I bought. It has a sweet powdery note that isn't overwhelming nor nauseous like other scents out there. It's somehow between baby-like and ladylike. It lasts for a couple of hours, which isn't really bad for body mist. How I wish Tupperware would make a perfume version of this. I would buy this over and over again.

Nivea Extra Whitening Anti-Perspirant Deodorant. This doesn't magically whitens my underarms and it's not anti-perspirant at all. I just love that this gentle to my skin and it doesn't worsen the color. Yeah, I have issues regarding this part of my body. The texture is somewhat milky and it dries quickly. I think I've repurchasing this stuff for that reason. 


                Garnier Pure Active Energizing Cleansing Foam. I don't have acne prone skin, terrifying pimples. The reason I bought was to use to prevent pimples from arising on my skin. This is really good in terms of cleansing and making my skin appear brighter. It did give me that radiant youthful glow. But, my problem with is that it opens my pores and so blackheads were appeared on the surface of my skin nonstop. I guess this is suitable for people with normal skin with no blemishes or whatsoever. I have an endless battle with blackheads and this product does not help. 


               Clean and  Clear Active Clear Acne Clearing Cleanser. Then again, another acne preventing face product. This was okay, though I don't really like the smell. This broke me out so this will out of my stash forever. 


                 Clean and Clear Deep Action Cleanser Oil Control. The best face cleanser for oily skin that has made ever yet. I'm not even kidding. A lot of products out there in the market claiming that they "control oil for hours" but doesn't work. Guess what? I have found a product that it does what it claims (in the realm of oily skin). My skin was oil free for hours if I don't put anything else on my skin. I've gone through two bottles of this but I think I would hit this again. This contains "parabens" too and other harmful chemicals. I will try to find something organic. 


              St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub. Yay! The last item. I have been using this brand for years, switching from different lines. I know that they are very well-know for their array of quality and effective products, especially their apricot scrubs. I love the fact that they are semi-organic and paraben-free. I think I might repurchase again. :)

             So, that concludes this post. If you have any product recommendations that you would like me to try please leave a comment, or tweet me. Suggestions are very much welcome.
