Graveyard: January and February Empties 2015

28. February 2015

I tried to use up as much as possible, before I by new products in 2015, and for the first two months I did a good efford in also emptying my sample stash. Here are my product empties for January and February and a quick impression on each product. As usual, I didn’t include any sample sachets or masks.

January and February Empties 2015

Frizz Ease Shampoo & Conditioner for curly hair- Repurchase? Maybe.

I used and liked the fullsize of this in the past quite often (these are travelsized tubes), but atm I’m in love with my Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo, that I don’t want to go back to any western brands :D Within the western drug store brands these are still my favourites.

Iope Super Vital VIP kit- Repurchase? No.

I used up the complete items of this kit and I’m really proud I did without changing to another line inbetween. You can find my review of this highly nourishing and moisturizing line >>here<<.

Secret Key Snow White Cream- Repurchase? Yes.

I loved using this. It gave a nice finish to the face and it smells great! The packaging is very pretty, too! Read my review >>here<<.

Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream- Repurchase? Maybe.

I used this eyecream during daytime because I think it is not moisturizing enough to be used at nights. I like the size of this eyecream and the fact that it is really affordable and can be used up in a realistic period. I could imagine repurchasing it, but I would rather try other eye creams first :D Find my review >>here<< .

SXM I Value Body Amoule- Repurchase? No.

This was part of the MeMeBox Diet Box and I was really curious about this ampoule. You take some drops and put it to the desired regions of your body. I could feel the skin being somehow tightened while applying but it did not show any longterm effects for me.

Shiseido Benefiance NutriPerfect Day Cream- Repurchase? No…sigh

This creamy cream is rich in its consistency and hydrates skin nicely. It also contains SPF 15. I enjoyed trying out this tiny tube, but since it is an expensive brand I don’t think that I’ll be repurchasing.

Welcos Confume Argan Treatment Hair Ampoule- Repurchase? YES!

I’m in healthier-hair-heaven since I bought Confume Argan Oil and Confume Treatment Hair Ampoule! My hair has been frizzy and dry since forever, but these products are amazing! This is the first of 5 tiny bottles and I love it! This indeep hair treatment doesn’t need to be rinsed out. It is mixed by a bit water and turns milky and warmer….can be used on wet and dry hair…I will buy more definitively! and I’ll be doing a review for both the argan oil and the treatment soon!

Only you Green Tea Jasmin Moisturizing Body Lotion- Repurchase? No.

I think this was a gift and came together with a shower gel. The scent was really nice. The bodylotion took a bit longer to absorb, though.

Lancome La Vie Et Belle shower Gel- Repurchse? No.

This was a gift with an order. I like the scent, but other than that there is nothing special about this shower gel.

Kneipp Almond Blossom Oil- Repurchse? Yes.

I used up the fullsized bottle of this last year and I loved it and this tiny version is no exception. The scent is soooo nice and it makes the skin feel very soft.

L’Occitane Karite Handcream -Repurchase? I would love to.

This is a rich and nourishing hand cream with a nice scent. There is nothing negative to say about this and I would love to try more handcream from L’Occitane.

Kerasys Moringa Miracle Essence- Repurchase? Yes!

A very nice smelling and softening hair essence which I loved to use. It is not as super effective as the Confume Argan oil, but it is nice for everyday use without making your hair greasy!

    I’ve tried the Frizz Ease, but I honestly didn’t like it. Even with it, the humidity here in Florida is so bad that using that plus product did absolutely nothing. Only heat tools work to tame my waves.

    I agree on the Shisedo, it is WAY too expensive for my little broke self. I did find a place,, that has some of the Japanese versions of the same product they market in the rest of the world but for a lot less. Maybe it’s because they are specifically marketed toward their Japanese customers?

      It is a pitty that Frizz Ease didn’t work for you :/ I’m using the Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo and Conditioner and I love it! I just purchsed the refills, because I ran out of it. I will check out the page you recommended. I bought some japanese Shiseido products from ebay or AdamBeauty which I liked. They have a lot of distinct brand branches in Japan. And some have even cuter packaging than the wester Shiseido products.

    I really like the RIP illustration you used for this post! :D I always throw away my empties and forget to make a post about it. BTW, Shiseido is only a high-end brand overseas. In Japan, it’s actually a (little more expensive) drugstore brand, usually retailing for 15-30€. I am preeetty convinced it’s the same stuff with different packaging. (So yeah, I wouldn’t purchase it in Germany either u.u) Pretty sure you can get it via Ebay or some sellers online! Have a nice day :)

      Danke! Ich hab mir ein Grafiuktablett geholt und die Illustration war das erste was ich gemacht hab :D Ich hab auch schon einmal Shiseido Produkte aus Japan bestellt. Ich liebe zB das Tsubaki Shampoo (aber das ist verhältnismäßig doch teuer). Aber die shiseido Senka Produkte sind sehr günstig im Vergleich. aber selbst in Japan gibt es ja unterschiedliche Submarken, und da sind auch welche teurer als die anderen…Ich bin also noch nicht schlüssig wie es mit den Produkten hier aussieht :D
