Empties Report: October 2017


My God, it’s just 2 months away from new year, time is surely running really fast! Now, I’m going to share with you my empties from last October 2017; some things that I will repurchase again, and some that won’t make it up on my list. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the empties!


1. COSRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence

I think I already at the conclusion where my skin suit Korean’s First Essence formulation much better than the Japanese one. I don’t know if all Korean brands do the same thing, however, I found that both COSRX and Hanyul have this thicker, gel like consistency whereas the Japanese FTE usually comes with watery consistency. Because it is much harder for me to repurchase the Hanyul one, and since this one works on my skin, I will surely repurchase the COSRX one.

2. The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

It’s hard for me to judge other The Ordinary products, but I surely love The Ordinary oils! I’m glad that I discover beauty oil, because beauty oil is such a life changing product for me. Now that The Ordinary have a lot of oil variation with affordable price, I couldn’t be any happier! 😀 Because though there are surely minor difference from this The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil to the highly acclaimed Trilogy Rose Hip Oil, this oil works pretty similar on my skin.


3. Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence 

One of my favorite sunscreen ever. I already continuously repurchase this in the past and already repurchased a fresh one in my vanity. This sunscreen comes with a new version with new packaging and formulation, though, so I will surely update you on what I thinking regarding the newer formula soon!

4. Hada Labo Gokyujun Perfect 3D Gel

My favorite night cream moisturiser that I will happily continue to repurchase! This gel moisturizer is a savior to my skin no matter what the weather is. No dry, flakey skin whenever I use this moisturizer. Furthermore, this moisturizer comes with anti aging benefits and pretty light consistency as well, very suitable for summer time and humid weather like in Jakarta.

5. Make A P:rem Black Cleansing Water

Even though this cleansing water comes with a pretty chic packaging and branding, I don’t know I just don’t think that this cleansing is worth the price. Even if the cleansing water often comes with 1+1 promotion, truthfully, for the same price, you can get the biggest size of Bioderma Sensibio H2O and in terms of formulation and result, I much much rather buy the Bioderma one. Maybe I even prefer the Garnier Micellar Water rather than this one. Is it that bad? Well.. not really. It cleanse makeup really well. But the fact that the cleansing water stings my eyes, comes with gimmicky colour and ingredients… I don’t know, I just set my eyes to the simpler micellar water like Bioderma as for now.


6. Barbara Hofmann Brush Cleanser

Not my favorite product to cleanse brush to be honest, but for a quick urgent and day to day cleansing, this product do the job pretty well. Not a fan of the scent as it heavy in alcohol, but since most of brush cleanser is usually like that, I don’t really mind. Will I repurchase it? Well.. probably no. But if you need a quick brush cleanser for day to day basis, this could be one of the alternatives.

7. Bioré Cleansing Oil

One of my favorite brush cleanser because it could also do a great job at cleaning beauty blender!!! Repurchased this a few times already, and I already have a fresh one in my vanity, ready to use! Though I never use it on my face anymore, I really love it to use it as a brush cleanser because it’s doing a great job, pretty affordable, and easy to find in any drugstore in Jakarta.


Well, I think that’s all from my empties this month. Do you have another thoughts on the product that I emptied this time? Do share on the comment section bellow! 😉
