Beauty Empties #8 ♡ ft. Dior, Bioderma, Clinique + More [2016]

Here are a few skincare products I have emptied during February and early March. I am excited to share with you the best perfume I have ever used, it is also the first bottle of perfume that I've emptied since I started using perfumes years ago.


Dior Addict Eau de Parfum

DIOR Addict Eau de Parfum is described as an Oriental Floral fragrance for women. I was given the 20ml as a gift a few years ago and I am unsure of which version this one is as there are quite a few versions of the Dior Addict Eau de Parfum. I love that it has a very strong vanilla-ish rich scent, it wears for a very long time and I get compliment all the time when I wear this perfume. I thought the lock design at the spray opening was very clever and it may seem like a mini bottle, but it lasted for years with almost everyday sprays.

The Body Shop Honeymania Shower Gel

The Body Shop Honeymania Shower Gel is a shower product claims to be made from the nectar of thousands of wildflowers. I bought the biggest bottle The Body Shop has ever made, 750ml and it's amazing! I love the smell of Honeymania, but because the bottle was too big and it took me nearly six months to finish a bottle, I was kind of sick of it at the end haha. Honeymania isn't ultra moisturizing and at the same time it doesn't dry out my skin. 

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Cleansing Facial Wash

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Cleansing Facial Wash is one of my most re-purchased skincare products! Looking back at my past beauty emptied posts, this is my third re-purchased and I absolutely love this product. At first I wasn't used to the clean tea tree scent, it smelled like freshly cut grass which I've always thought it's a really gross scent lol; but the more I use this facial wash, the more I got used to the smell. Now I just love everything about it. I love that it leaves my face feeling refreshed after each use and I love that I hardly get acne when using this product, except from that time of the month and this facial wash helps to reduce those pimples.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (Combination Oily to Oily Skin)

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (Combination Oily to Oily Skin) is another of my absolute favourite, most purchased (for family and friends) / re-purchased product. I am an oily skin type and this moisturizer absorbs quickly into my skin, it makes my skin dewy soft without feeling heavy or looking like a disco ball. I use this mostly at night before bed and I sometimes use it before makeup application and I find that it helps keep my facial oil in place and helps my makeup stays longer, it also feels moisturizing during wear. 

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Solution Micellaire

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Solution Micellaire is a no-rinse micella cleanser and makeup remover especially designed for sensitive, normal to dry skin types. I received a 100ml to try from my Beautylish Lucky Bag and although I have always try to avoid non-rinse cleansers, this was a highly recommended product from the people around me. After finishing the bottle, I thought that I actually really liked it, it changed my thoughts towards micellar cleansers a bit. I like that this cleanser removes heavy makeup easily, with only a few wipes of five to six cotton pads, it can remove waterproof mascara and eye products without burning my eyes and I like that it doesn't dry out my skin or produce more oil as I have only skin and this was meant for dry skin types. 

Not Soap, Radio Liquid Feud Body Wash

Not Soap, Radio Liquid Feud Body Wash is one of the samples that came in from my recent Birchbox February Beauty Box, it is one of my absolute favourite products from the February box. I love the coconut scent and I love that this body wash leaves my skin super smooth after shower. I also thought that the little sample bottle is super cute, I have since reused it for something else, it's so handbag friendly!

Carmex Original Lip Balm

Carmex Original Lip Balm is the best lip balm I have ever tried, I have since re-purchased a few pots cause I can't live without it haha! I first tried this lip balm when it was included in one of the GoodieBox NZ subscription boxes, I remember it was one I received that I was so disappointed, I cancelled those beauty boxes. At first I thought that it was totally lame to include a lip balm because the beauty box was pretty expensive, now I take all back whatever lame things I've said hahah because this lip balm is truly amazing. I love the fresh minty scent and I love that it keeps my lips moisturized while I sleep (I usually applied before bed), it was also an amazing product for when I wear lip tint and any other drying lip products. 

The Body Shop Shea Sugar Body Scrub

The Body Shop Shea Sugar Body Scrub claims to reveal softer, glowing skin with exfoliating salt grains and organic sugar in a moisturizing, oil-based scrub that has a fresh, classic scent. I don't like this body scrub and I feel like this is the worse scrub I have ever tried, every time I use this product I just couldn't wait till the day I've emptied it as I have thought of throwing away but I didn't want to waste money. Arghh the struggle! The Shea Sugar Body Scrub is so sticky, it feels sticky during and after use, the smell is alright, but not great and it didn't feel moisturizing or refreshing as other body scrubs I've used.

  1. Omg kudos to the perfume! I have never ever finished a bottle ever. Haha right when I'm about to finish it I get uninterested in finishing it just because. So I just give it away.
