In February 2014, I used up no makeup but finished a few skin care products, some of which I was glad to see the back of. Oh, and some of these were "finished" in February - I may have begun using them in January or earlier (since I get asked how I finish up large containers in a month lol). I am in love with a couple of products and will review them at length but, for most part, things were a bit meh.
Here are the beauty products I finished up in February 2014 and my quick thoughts on each.
Beauty Box Swap That Went Horribly Wrong and was a PR sample reviewed on Our Beauty Wonderland. I used it up on my feet over winter - after chucking out half the contents since those girls had obviously used it, and giving it a sunning - and it is finally over. Didn't do much, the cream was difficult to absorb and felt too greasy.
The Cape Town Toiletry Company Hand Cream: I picked up half a dozen of these hand creams from the local supermarket. These are fabulous! No parabens. These are made in South Africa. The cream feels like silk and is absorbed quickly. Will repurchase!
A Beautiful World Christmas Edition box - they sent me six of these very good sheet masks.
Etude House Heart 5 Berry Complex Sheet Mask: I had got this as a sample from one of my Korean skin care hauls. This was the best sheet mask I used in February. There was enough serum for all-over moisturising and it felt cooling and hydrating.
Jane Clare Blueberry Revital Firming Sheet Mask: Of the three sheet masks I used up in February, this one - from Glamabox - was my least favourite. The serum was stickier than the other two and I didn't like how it smelled or felt on the skin.
Ifren Eye Mask: The packaging claimed this would eradicate dark circles overnight. Yeah, right! Apart from sticking to my under-eye area like glue till I had to prise off the pad - which hurt and stretched the skin - it didn't do a thing!
Shivani. You got to love how she sends out two sachets so there's enough for a decent go. I liked how this sunscreen cream felt on me. So far, I have loved everything I've tried from Amore Pacific.
Clarins Defining Eye Lift: This is from the Vanity Trove Box. I don't think my eyes need a lift, but even so, it didn't do a thing for me. It felt like water and I had the feeling I had applied a drop from a faucet to my eye area. Meh.
December Lip Factory Box. I used this to clean my face for three days after wisdom tooth extraction before it ran out. It smelled amazing - minty-pumpkiny. There wasn't much lather but it did a good job when I couldn't apply anything else on my swollen face at the time. Considering repurchase.
Quite a few negative reviews there. Apart from the Glam Glow mask, the PureCeuticals Cleanser, the Boots eye mask, LRP Toleriane and the hand cream, I was not interested in anything else I finished up in February.
