January 2017 Empties Report

Wow, I didn’t realize that I’ve finished lots of products within this month alone. And this list include a lot of product that I really love. 😩 So, without further ado, let’s jump into it!


1.Menard Tsukika Lotion Moist

I think long time reader will know that this is one of my favorite hydrating toner since I discovered it. Love, love, love this stuff so much; mentioned it few times in my blog already, and I think I already purchased four or five bottles of these. If you want to step ahead from cheaper hydrating toner, like, say, another favorite of mine, Hada Labo Lotion, but not ready to commit to the much higher price of SK-II Lotion, I would highly recommend this one, especially if you have dry and/or dehydrated skin. Repurchase?Purchased another bottle already! 😉

2. Hada Labo Gokyujun Ultimate Moisturizing Milk

Personally, I never consider this moisturizer to be my ultimate favorite, even though I already bought countless bottles of this since 2015. For me, it’s just a fine moisturizer However, I think if you have dry skin, and want to combat the “dryness” that Alcohol based sunscreen product like BiorĂ© UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence would give you, I highly recommend to try this one. But, if you have combination to oily skin, maybe this moisturizer would be too much for you. These days, I change my skin care routine into some multiple hydrating toner steps and haven’t use this Hada Labo Gokyujun Ultimate Moisturizing Milk ever since I emptied it, and surprisingly, my skin feels okay. Repurchase it? Will do, because I will running out of my Hada Labo Premium Lotion soon, lol.


3. Silcot Sponge Touch Moisturizing Cotton (Uru Uru Cotton) 

Now, I’m really really really sad that I finally finished all of my Silcot cotton supply. I freaking love this cotton and I think I babbled about how much I love this cotton multiple times already, lololol. 😆 This cotton even make it to my #1 Top Beauty Item from 2016. In my last uses of the Silcot Cotton, I tried to make it as a sheet mask, and yeah, it works wonderfully too as a mask! Will definitely stocked it a tons if I have the change to come back to Japan soon! (Or beg to my friends who lives in Japan to bought it for me, lol).

4. PAC Brush Cleanser

This is my favorite brush cleanser because of its practicality. There’s no need to hassle with soap and it never make my brush dry. Will write about the full review on this PAC Brush Cleanser and how I clean my brush soon!


5. Kosé Cosmeport Clear Turn Babyish Precious Oil-in-Milky Mask Plumping

Although it’s a pretty good mask for the cheap price, I wouldn’t repurchase it in near future. First, because the fit is horrible on my face; second, because it’s hard to find it in my country. I would rather try another sheet mask. Reviewed it here.

6. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Travel Size

This is one of the last bottles of SK-II FTE that I have. I want to try another booster, because there are so many kinds of skin care booster in the market and sometimes I just feels that this FTE started too feel redundant on my skin. Well, let’s hope that the new booster that I purchased will do good on my skin!

7. SKIN AQUA UV Moisture Gel for Body and Face

Finished it as a sunscreen for my body after a year struggling with this sunscreen. I don’t know what’s wrong with the ingredients, but I feel like this sunscreen always breaking me out. It might be a pretty nice and affordable sunscreen, but sorry, I don’t really get the hype.

8. Hada Labo Gokyujun Ultimate Moisturizing Lotion

Tried it because I need to buy travel size skin care to make me easier to bring it whenever I need to go somewhere (How I love Japanese skincare whom always provide travel sizes of their products!). I would say that I’m pretty impressed with the texture and the effect that it would give to my skin. It feels something in the middle of Hada Labo Gokyujun Light Lotion and Hada Labo Premium Lotion. Would be great for dehydrated skin and maybe for combination and oily skin who need lighter textured moisturizer. Might repurchase the whole bottle in the future.

9. Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot

I feel like the new Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot is not exactly the better version from the previous edition, perhaps I prefer the old one. Why? First and foremost, I hate that the new one provide less product. Second, although I didn’t really search about the new formulation and don’t really know about the comparison from the new ingredients to the older one, I feel like this Pink Powder Spot didn’t really work as well as the old one, and I already finished like, the second bottle of the newer one. Repurchase? Maybe, most likely because I feel insecure if I didn’t have this product on me during my break-out paces, lol.

10. Kyusoku Jikan Cooling Leg Pad

Another sad moments because I have to say good bye to this gorgeous stuff!!! It works really well to reduce leg pain and tiredness plus, it smells flowery, relaxing, and soo good! And it’s not everyday that you would find anything related to ointment smells good. Props to Japanese technology!

11. KAO Megurhythm Steam Hot Eye Mask

I praised this particular product a lot in my previous review, and it’s pretty sad that I no longer had this one on me anymore. It works really well to reduce your stress, tiredness, and soothes your eyes and made your stressful days got forgotten because of its relaxing scent. Love it! Will definitely repurchase it if I have the access to this product!

12. Lululun Precious White Rich Moisturizing Face Mask

Love this mask way more than the regular Lululun mask. It performs slightly better than Kose’s Clear Turn Baby Skin. I always like how it made my skin looks after I used it. My skin always looks well moisturized, plump, and feels nice every time I use it. I would say that I’m not really sad to bid good bye to this mask because I still had the red Lululun Precious mask that I still haven’t got the time to try, lol.
