Empties #41 - Skincare Toner & Sunscreen

We cannot talk about Skincare Empties without featuring Caudalie Organic Grape Water!

I love the Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch so much that after this one, I picked up another two. The patches are not too sticky which I like, because when they are too sticky, they hurt when you try to remove them. They work well and really minimise the pimple or completely zaps them away. ACE product.

I really wanted to try the Dr. PawPaw Original Balm and so when I received this in a beauty box, I was really pleased. I love thick balms like this for a myriad of uses. I think my personal favourite in the Lanolips 101 Ointment so I will not purchase a full size of this.

I know these look full but they are well and truly empty by now. Trust me! The Arcona White Tea Purifying Cleanser smells so amazing. It is a gel cleanser which foams and is slightly more drying than the Fresh Soy Cleanser. I did enjoy using this and am not utilising the bottle for travel!

The Arcona Cranberry Toner I do not actually know how I feel about at all. I don't think I like the smell of Cranberry for one, and you have to shake it up where the white part at the bottom is actually almost like a moisturising part. Since I cannot decide, clearly I do not like it enough to be purchasing.

I have repurchased the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater because it is so nice. I love the spritz and it is a really fine mist. This is also cheaper than my must-have....... (it's next up)

The Caudalie Organic Grape Water I love so much. The only thing is that I cannot decant this to travel with, you have to buy the smaller version, which I do not want to, so I bring other mists with me if I do not have any check-in luggage.

I tried out the SK-II Try out kit and this has the SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and Facial Treatment Essence, I cannot believe how much it costs in all honesty but it is actually really lovely. The Clear Lotion is like an acid toner and the Treatment Essence, if I could afford it, I would definitely be using this because I saw an actual difference to my skin.

The Josie Maran Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist is really nice on the skin. This is the finest mist but I don't actually love that because I end up having to mist myself ten thousand times before I feel like I have enough product on my face. Also, I always worry about accidentally grabbing a perfume next to it and trying to spray my face with my perfume!

The Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid is pretty good. I really want to try the BHA version and others from the range because this was an effective exfoliator which is not irritating on the skin at all (how do they even do this)

I have both the Organic Touch Malaysia Aloe Mint Face Mist and the Cleopatra's Secret Rose Face Mist and I love both! I decant these because I do not like the mist/spritz nozzle but I like the formula of the actual mist.

I really enjoy this Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 90% Toner because I like using a gentle toner before I go in with a hydrating serum and this one is no fuss and lovely.

This SNP The Sound OF Your Heat Cho Seok Moisture Mist was a present from my friends and it claims to have bird nest essence (LOL) but I tried it out and I really enjoyed the fine mist. I can't say I love the face on the bottle so I think I might try to remove that sticker and then reuse and repurpose the bottle!

The Shiseido Wet Force Perfect UV Protector is actually really excellent. I personally prefer the regular (dark blue) one. This one is so undetectable and really comfortable on the skin, no stinging, and no running into eyes. The light blue one (sensitive) has a huge white cast so personally it is not for me. If you have really sensitive skin, this one might be your better choice.

Finally we have the innisfree eco safety aqua perfect sun gel which is not bad but I personally prefer the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence, which is cheaper, lighter in texture and just an overall winner so ... sorry innisfree.

That is everything this time, next up is actually empties haircare so stay tuned =D
