Empty #11

It's time for last empties post of 2014. I finished so many products and at first I wanted to post them all together, but this post was already getting long and it took me quite some time to write it, so I decided to divide it into two parts. First will be up today and second next week. 

Afrodita Clean Phase Micellar Solution
Telling the truth, there's no big difference between micellar waters from different brands. Maybe I'll write few words about micellar waters next month. I like this one from Afrodita. Luckily it doesn't have too strong and unpleasant scent, it's gentle and it removes face makeup very well. It also works well for removing eye makeup, although waterproof makeup can be a bit tricky (my Toyoko pencil can be removed only with two-phased removers). It contains 200 ml and the price is around 5 €.
Repurchase: Already did.

Mixa 24h Light Moisturizing Balancing Cream with 6% Glycerine
I bought this one in summer, because I thought it'll  be enough for my skin, since in the summer my skin doesn't needs so much moisture as in winter. O boy, I was wrong. I have no idea, why two creams from the same brand can be so different, but they are. Except if I got a bad product. This one had a funny scent, while the one with 10 glycerine doesn't have a scent. Also, I had a feeling that this one didn't really work for me.
Repurchase: Not this one, but I will repurchase the one with 10 % glycerine.

Balea Mildes Waschgel
This is my go to cleanser for few years now. I have a normal skin type and it works very well for it. It foams nicely, it has a pleasant scent and what's the most important, it cleans my skin very good. Some people said to me that this cleanser dried their skin. I didn't notice the same problem, but I also can't say that it's moisturizing.
Repurchase: Yes.

Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal gel cleanser
While I was at Yves Rocher store I decided to give a try to their Hydra Vegetal gel cleanser. It's designed for the same skin type as Balea one - for people with normal and mixed skin type. At the beginning I really loved this cleanser, it felt very fresh and nourishing, but longer I used it more I got the feeling that it started to dry my skin. The texture is very gelish and it cleans the skin very good, it also leaves it soft, but I didn't like the feeling that it started to leave on my skin by the end. Maybe my skin got too use to it or I was doing something else wrong, because at the beginning I really liked it a lot. It contains 200 ml and it costs around 6 €.
Repurchase: Maybe.

Yves Rocher Exfoliating shower gel Yellow Peach
This is probably the creamiest body peeling I tried. The particles it contained weren't too rough and it left nice feeling on the skin, but I didn't like it much, mainly because of the scent. It smelled like peach, but the scent was too artificial and strong. Otherwise it contains 200 ml and the price is around 4 €.
Repurchase: No.

Balea Mango Mambo shower gel
My love for Balea shower gels is well known by now. Their summer limited edition shower gels have the best scents and this one is not an exception. I love mango scented shower gels.
Repurchase: Yes, if it would be still available.

Afrodita Jojoba Oil with Shea Butter shower gel
Afrodita is really doing a great job lately; most of their products I tried made a good impression on me. The same is with this shower gel. Beside the amazing scent it also works great, my skin is very soft and nuorished after usage. I think the price is around 2 or 3 € for 250 ml.
Repurchase: Already did.

Afrodita 100% SPA Sugar Scrub
This product has been praised before on my blog. I know a lot of people don't like it, but I love it. It's very rough peeling, but that also means that it removes dead skin perfectly. After showering it leaves a film on the skin that most people hate, but I don't mind it. I just wipe my body with a towel after showering and my skin is soft, moisturized and nourished. Beside that it also smells very nice. Maybe the only downside is the price, because 200 ml costs around 5 € and you finish it after four or five usages (depends on how much product you use at once). So for me this is more a product that I use when I want to spoil my skin rather than on regular basis. 
Repurchase: Of course.

Essence Studio Nails Ultra Strong nail hardener
Another discovery of the year. I started using it when Essie discontinued Nourish Me and for the price of 2 € and few cents this is a miracle in a bottle (for me). I use it as a base coat, which probably isn't the smartest idea since it contains formaldehyde, but if I use these nail hardeners as producers recommend them they don't work for me. I have very soft and weak nails that break a lot and this hardener helps them to become stronger. I definitely recommend it.
Repurchase: Yes.

Essie Blanc
Amazing white polish with great formula that goes on nails smootlhy and evenly. It's really a nice polish, but I use white polish a lot in nail art, which means that I finish two or three bottles of it in a year and Essie is just too expensive to purchase it regular. I would recommend it to those who wear white polish occasionally, but if you're like me then 10 € will be too much to spend on a bottle of white polish. But I purchased it on a sale (got it for a half of price).
Repurchase: Probably not.

Essence Nail Cuticle softener pencil
This is an oily pencil for cuticle, which I mostly use when swatching nail polishes or taking photos of my manicures for blog. It softens and moisturizes the cuticle and it also leaves it moisturized for quite some time.
Repurchase: Yes.

Catrice Go Flamingo Go
I have no idea why Catrice is discontinuing these lip balms, because they are really great. Go Flamingo Go is definitely the winning shade, it's a peachy shade that would suit anyone, it's moisturizing and it gives a nice shine to the lips. I'm definitely buying few more backups before it'll be gone.
Repurchase: Yes.

Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms
Three Maybelline lip balms I finished recently are Hydrate, Peach Kiss and Intense Care. These are so hyped, maybe a bit overhyped, because they are good, but nothing extra amazing. They are moisturizing and that is what I expect from any lip balm. They also have cute packaging. Peach Kiss is the only one that gave a bit of color to the lips, other two were colorless.    
Repurchase: Yes, Hydrate and Peach Kiss.

Labello Fruit Shine Cherry lip balm
This is a lip balm I'm not really a fan of. Although it gives a bit of color to the lips, I don't find it enough moisturizing, it's actually more drying on the lips than anything else, but I was using it when I had it near me and I finished it.
Repurchase: Definitely no.

Have you tried any of these products? Thank you for reading!

  1. Meni res ni jasno zakaj gre ravno Go flamingo go iz prodaje :S Ker se mi zdi da je bila res popularna barva, si moram res zalogo narediti ker meni je odličen :D Essence utrjevalec pa moje nohte vedno spravi v red pa če so še v tako obupnem stanju :D Sploh kadar imam pavzo z gelom :D

    1. Mislim, da je bila to njihova najbolj popularna barva. Essence je pa zame res odkritje leta, ne bi nikoli verjela, da tako dobro deluje, če ne bi preizkusila sama. :)

  2. Si bila pa res pridna, morem jaz tudi tega Go Flamingo go kupit preden gre iz prodaje, da vidim če mi bo tako všeč kot Don't think just pink :)

    1. Ja, se trudim. :) Meni je Go Flamingo Go najboljši, super kremast in vlažilen. :)

  3. Hitro v trgovino, nekateri DMji imajo že odprodajo catrice izdelkov :)

    1. Say what? Letos so pa nekam hitro začeli.

  4. Res? Pa ravno danes sem bila v DM-u in nisem niti pogledala kaj se dogaja pri Catrice stojalu, ker si ne smem nič več kupit. Razen za tale flamingo si bom pa izjemo naredila, sicer tega odtenka še nisem imela, ampak so res vlažilni in lepo obarvajo ustnice. Če dobim v roke neizropano stojalo gresta vsaj dva z menoj.
    Gleded tegale labello češnjevega balzama se pa strinjam. Ga imam tudi jaz pri sebi da ga porabim, ker mi lepo diši in mi lepo obarva ustnice drugače mi jih pa noro izsuši. Po kakšnih dveh urah so že čisto razpokane tako da ga moram kombinirati z ognjičevo kremo

    1. DM je tokrat nekam hitro začel razprodajo. Go Glamingo Go pa je itak prekrasen odtenek in najbolj popularen, kar je verjetno eden od vzrokov, da so se odločili za umik (like always).
