Quarterly Empties @ Thursday, January 30, 2014

Quarterly Empties because it takes me forever to finish anything, which can be a great thing when it's expensive. But I do like to try new things.  

Trilogy Eye Contour Cream 20ml $45
Oh wow that's expensive! Though that's not the most I've spent on an eye cream. We got this through a fb promo. Love that it's super gentle and natural. But sometimes I need more moisturizer. Not sure if does anything other than moisturize though, that or I can't tell the difference. Might buy this, but I'd like to try other brands. 

Trilogy Very Gentle Moisturizing Cream 50ml $38
Love this, being a cream it's thick but absorbs well into the skin. Smells odd at first, but it's not unpleasant. The pump is great, love that. I have dry-ish (schizo) skin and this is perfect for dry days. Would I recommend and buy it? Yes! This could be the one. Great for dry & sensitive skin. Oh and it lasts much longer than you think it would, and I'm wearing it atm. 

C2 Collagen Firming & Moisturizing Face Mask (5pk) $36
Felt nice, but I feel didn't do anything. Most masks it seems are more of a placebo thing. You could easily go DIY for a cheap and natural one at home. This one is a $7.20 a mask!

Ego QV Face Nurturing Night Cream 50g $14
Nice and thick is the way I like it. I felt this one was a bit basic though, but it did remind me of Burt's Bee's Night Cream for Sensitive Skin. This is for dry skin by the way. I'd get it if I was on a budget. 

Ego QV Cream 250g Jar $11
This is for your body. I use it when I need extra moisturizer, in combo with the lotion (we always get the big 1L+ pump bottle). A staple we'd get over and over again. I like my body creams/lotions unscented so I can wear perfume.

Nivea In Shower Body Lotion Skin Conditioner 400ml $7
This is great, goes on nice and fast. It's all about convience. Classic Nivea scent, but it disspears fast. But I find sometimes the moisturizer even the dry skin version is not enough. But I would buy this again. 

Neutrogena's Norwegian Formula Handcream 56g $6
I really like this, goes on like a gel rubs in like a cream. Dries fast. Though not as moisturizing as L'Occitane this is in my top 3 tried & tested handcreams.

Redwin Tea Tea Shampoo 250ml $4.50
The cheapest shampoo I've ever bought. Some say it's the cure for a crazy oily scalp, didn't work for me.

Neutrogena's Deep Clean Gentle Oil-Free Scrub 125ml $11
My new favourite scrub it's a more gentle version of St Ives. Smells nice too. 

Sukin Nourishing Lip Treatment 10ml $7
A thick gel to be used after exfoliation. It's ok, not a daily lip thing you'd wear though. Not for me. Tip - Sukin's cheapest at CW.

L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream $19 & Powder $27
Great for a light coverage, too much and you'll look like an oompa lumpa though! Bought the cream (more like liquid as it's runny). I do like the matte texture of this pressed powder - but I'm sure there's cheaper powders just as good. Never pay full price, Target sometimes has this one sale. Cream on sale at Big W at the moment. 

Clean & Clear Essentials Oil-Control Toner 100ml $6.50
This one's great for oily skin. Cheap and cheery. 

Marc Jacob's Honey EDP - Sample
It was ok, I like it but wouldn't buy/try it again.

Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner 125ml $8.50
Love this, it's refreshing and citrus. Great on a hot day, keep it in your handbag (wish they had a travel size) or draw at work. I'd definitely get this again, much more affordable than Jurlique.

What are you loving at the moment?
