Empties Vol. 5 + Mini Reviews

 

 

So I’m ending this year with an Empties post and here are my recent Empties + their mini reviews:

 

  1. Olay Total Effects Anti Ageing Day cream: This is a recurring product in my skincare regime and I keep going back to this day cream. I don’t have major wrinkles or anti-ageing concerns, I only wanted a decent day cream which could moisturize my dry skin in winters as well as summers. This cream is highly emollient and absorbs into the skin nicely. I could see a major improvement in my mum’s skin texture on prolonged usage of this cream. (Price: Rs 799 for 50 g )

 

2. The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil: I don’t have oily skin but my husband does and he gets occasional acne. I got this tea tree oil for him and it does its work to some extent. It didn’t miraculously erase the pimple in one night but definitely did help in shortening the pimple life 😛 I have reviewed the facewash from this range HERE. The packaging is tricky and I wish the cap came with simpler packaging. (Price: Rs 645 for 10 ml)

 

3. Colorbar Rapid Dry Top Coat: I had this top coat for quite some time with me and since it’s a big bottle it lasts fairly long. This is not a super quick drying top coat but does dry rapidly. The only con is that it becomes gloopy after you finish about 2/3rd product, so the rest of the product goes waste. Will not repurchase and try different brands. Also, Colorbar has changed all its nailpolish packaging. (Price: Rs 399 for 12ml )

 

4. Forest Essentials Facial Ubtan Roop Nikhar Gulab: Forest Essentials is my most fav skincare brand and its products rarely disappoint me (except THIS product). I got this ubtan long back and FE has now revamped its packaging. The ubtan smells heavenly of roses and makes skin soft, supple and radiant with continued uses. I like to mix this ubtan with some other ingredients and rarely used it on its own. I am currently testing a different ubtan from the same brand but will definitely repurchase this one in future. (Price: Rs 1025 for 70 g)

 

5. L’Occitane Fleur D’or & Acacia Luminous Body Oil: Body Oil are a staple in Delhi winters for me and I bought this dry oil from L’Occitane long ago. It smells amazingly and absorbs quickly without leaving the skin oily, since this is a dry oil. I have also used it as serum for my hair and it leaves hair smooth and frizz free. Price is a con and I think it is now discontinued in Indian stores. (Price: 2390 for 100 ml)

 

xoxo, Blossom
