Beauty Empties: May

beauty empties may

 As always the end of the month comes with a review of my used up beauty products. I haven't been emptying that much stuff this month but there were some really interesting products nevertheless. Also I had promised to keep you updated on the Shiseido samples which I can do now that I tried them throughout (to get the history behind these samples you may want to read this post).

 1 Yves Rocher hand moisturizer 30 ml
 Rebuy it? No. Why? I had gotten this hand cream as a sample one of the first times I shopped at Yves Rocher. What I like is that it is without parabens but the smell was really strange and artificial. (Full review over here.)

2. Yves Rocher Citrus Flower shower gel 50 ml
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? This was another sample and I loved it! The smell is so gorgeous, makes you feel like you´re taking a shower in an Italian garden. I will rebuy it as soon as I tried the Treaclemoon shampoos which have been on my wish list for quite a while.

 3 Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream 7 ml
Rebuy it? Maybe. Why? Okay so I got these as samples which means that I don't know the price but I think that the Shiseido products are rather expensive. Okay... I just found the prices on the internet and they are! But okay, if they work why not pay the money, right? So what I really liked about this very cream is that it didn't make my skin sweat at all. You know that this is a huge problem of mine and is caused by some bad and useless ingredients a lot of face creams have. This already showed me the high quality of this product which also made my skin look quite good. As I could only use it for about 2 weeks until it was empty and as I don't really have wrinkles yet I could not see the benefits some women seem to have seen after about 4 weeks. The reason I will not rebuy it at the moment is that 1. I need to get more information about the brand and the ingredients and 2. I found the best alternative to expensive face creams ever and will share it with you as soon as I sufficiently tried it.

4 Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Corrective Serum 2 ml
Rebuy it? No. Why? The effects were quite the same as mentioned above but this cream had a slightly different texture. I can't really describe it but it was more gel-like. If I would rebuy a Shiseido cream then only the Revitalizing Cream as I don't really see the sense of this serum.

5 Maybelline FIT me! Liquid Foundation #115 Ivory 30ml
Rebuy it? Yes, already did so! Why? Best liquid foundation I used so far. The shade was perfect for my skin. Also even if it cost about 12€ it was totally worth it as I had been using it for over one year!! Another benefit: it has SPF 18. Read the full review here.

  8. I love reading 'empties' posts. It helps you see what products have actually been used by people. I have a couple of Yves Rocher products myself, and find them either hit or miss.



  9. I love beauty posts like these. You always see the posts about products just bought and it's so good to hear about your reviews on it after you had the time to use it.
