October Empties (P50P Pt 9)

Sample: Clarins Double Serum & Multi-Active Day – I am a big fan of Clarins oils and serums, so I’m wasn’t surprised to find that I really liked the Double Serum. It was scented but didn’t irritate the skin, was absorbed quickly and left my face looking nice and plump the next day. The Multi-Active Day cream was not my favourite, it was heavily scented (enough for me to still smell it for a long time after applying it to my face) and too heavy for me to wear as a day cream. I would consider picking up the full sized serum, but not the day cream.

32: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Wipes – This product is a new discovery for me this year and now a firm favourite in my skincare cupboard. Unfortunately, due to the fact that I am trying to finish this damn Project Pan I have not been able to repurchase. But you can bet that when I’m next in a position to be buying face wipes this is what I’ll be picking up.

33: Glasshouse Candle in Tahaa (vanilla caramel) – To be honest, I’m not a big fan of this scent because it’s too close to being sickly sweet. It is however one of Sebastian’s favourites and I purchased this mini candle as part of his Christmas gift last year. I wouldn’t repurchase this for myself, but he loves it so it might still make a reappearance in the future.

34: Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel – Um, what?! A Paula’s Choice product that I didn’t repurchase immediately? It is only because I am participating in this pan that I didn’t repurchase this. I loved this moisturiser, and it has replaced Hydralight as my favourite in the range. This has more of a gel-like texture, and my combination skin absolutely loved it. I think this would work well in the warmer months because it feels nice and light on the skin.

35: Skin Republic Collagen Infusion Face Mask Sheet – I picked up a couple of these sheet masks while placing a Chemist Warehouse order not really expecting much but I actually really love them. They work well on my sensitive skin, and do seem to have visible results. I am leaning more and more towards sheet masks lately, they really play into my laziness. They’re so easy to use and I don’t have to spend any time washing any additional product off my face afterwards. These masks in particular are only $6.99 and are definitely worth checking out.
