April Empties

Paula’s Choice Hydralight One-Step Facial Cleanser – This is still my favourite facial cleanser, and I’ve been using it for so long now that I’m hesitant to try anything new in case my skin erupts in protest. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve repurchased this, but you can bet I had a full bottle in the cupboard ready to go when this one ran out.

Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner – This was a decent toner, although I don’t feel like it did anything to reduce the size of my pores. To be fair that could be because I’m officially beyond help in that department.

Dove Go Fresh Rejuvenative Body Wash in ‘Pear & Aloe Vera Scent’ – I ordered this as part of a grocery order to be sent to the house in Adelaide (for Sebastian to use) before I moved over from Perth, as I still had all the beauty products with me. This was a decent body wash, I liked the pear smell but I think it’s more of a summer fragrance for me.

Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation in ‘Perfect Ivory’ – Yep, still my number one foundation. I’m starting to panic a little bit because I had one bottle of this remaining and now it’s nearly finished. I also have a couple of other staple products on their last legs, which means a Sephora order is in my near future and my bank balance is weeping at the thought of it.

Clinique Blended Face Powder in ‘Invisible Blend’ – I liked this setting powder, and although some powders that claim to be “translucent” actually aren’t, this did well to blend into the ghost-white skin on my face. Although this isn’t my all-time favourite (I think that title would have to go to Laura Mercier), I would consider repurchasing it in the future. Especially considering Laura Mercier is not going to be available in Australia after the end of June.

Garnier Hydra Bomb Tissue Mask – I really like these Garnier masks, they do a great job of pumping the skin full of hydration and they’re reasonably inexpensive compared to other sheet masks on the market.

Lonvitalite Collagen Firming & Moisturising Silk Sheet Mask – This was a perfectly decent sheet mask, and did a nice job of moisturising my skin. But honestly, I think purely for the price point you’re better off going with something from the Garnier range.
