Running on Empty: The Lost, Yet Found, Empties!


December's empties almost didn't happen. You see, Aki and I have been rearranging our apartment, and the bag that housed the empties went missing. I found the box stuffed in a corner under some kickboxing pads.

Nexxus Pro Mend Split End Binding: I would use this leave-in treatment after a deep conditioning treatment. The results were not dramatic, but I did see an improvement with my split ends. I really enjoyed this product, and would buy it again next time I'm in the states.

Redken Smooth Down Conditioner: My hair can't live without this brand!

Skintimate Moisturizing Shave Gel in Strawberry Tangerine Twist: I've been using this product for a long as I can remember (different scents of course), and I will always repurchase!

Dry Idea Advanced Dry Unscented Deodorant: I can't deal with scented deodorants! Dry Idea is my favorite brand, and the only one I will use.

St.Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control: I love the entire St.Ives scrub line, and I'll always repurchase.

Delon Premium Cotton Rounds: You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to find cotton rounds in Tokyo! I purchased a box that contains four packs of cotton rounds at Costco.

Colgate Maxfresh with Mini Breath Strips Toothpaste: My favorite toothpaste :D

 Mac Opulash: One of my favorite mascaras, and I'll always repurchase.

Honorable mentions :)

Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate: I've tired this concentrate before, and although I really enjoy it, I don't think I'd purchase it.

Le Metier De Beaute Replenishing Daily Solution SPF 30: I did not like the scent of this moisturizer at all. A mixture of rose and dirt. Unfortunately, the scent was so overbearing, I wouldn't purchase a full size of this product.

Lancome Renergie Lift Volumetry Eye Cream: I found this eye cream very moisturizing. I may purchase a full size in the future.

Jack Black Lip Balm in Natural Mint: I don't know how I came across this lip balm. I got a bunch of them in a box my friends sent me. I dislike this lip balm!!! I found it did NOTHING for my lips. Wouldn't recommend nor purchase!

Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum: I've purchased this product before, and although I don't have spots, I do like the brightening effect this serum gives my skin. I'd repurchase it again.

What have you finished recently?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. Colgate MaxFresh is my favorite tooth paste as well. :)

    1. My teeth just don't feel clean without it! I need my Colgate MaxFresh!

  2. I was saving my empty toothpaste for a review post like this and my hubby just threw it to garbage ...eeeeee (blogger problem)
    BTW love the empty post <3

    1. Yeah, I have to put my empties away asap, if not I run into the same problem...men!

      Looking forward to your toothpaste review :D

  3. This is a great post. I'm really in that eye mask. I've seen it before and always wondered if it's good.

    1. The eye mask is great! I prefer this lavender one, and enjoy using it before I go to bed.

  4. I adore the St.Ives Apricot Scrub too but lately I've replaced it with a scrub from My Beauty Diary.

    Hmmm, what have I finished lately? Lotion, serum, lipbalm and a primer. I'm saving them in a box for an empties edition on Instagram hahaha

    1. Hey Blair!

      I purchased so many backups of the different St.Ives apricot scrubs, but once they're gone maybe I'll try the My Beauty Diary Facial Scrub.

      Can you link me to your Instagram?
