Empties Vol. 7 + Mini Reviews

 

 

 

  1. Lakme Blush & Glow Lemon Gel Facewash – Lakme Gel Strawberry facewash used to be my favorite during college days. Lakme launched a couple more fragrance in the same range and Lemon is one of them. The citrusy fragrance is nice and refreshing especially during these sweltering months. This is a decent facewash, not very drying, not overly moisturizing. (Price: Rs 99 for 50 g, Expiry : 2 years).

2. Bella Voste Nail Enamel Shade 59 GL – I received this nailpolish in one of the beauty boxes sometime last year. This is a beautiful golden glitter top coat with small golden glitter and silver hexagonals in clear base. I had barely used this topcoat when its cap broke leading to drying of the polish. I don’t have a proper golden topper right now but some other similar topcoats I have tried and reviewed are: Maybelline Colorshow Bling Thing and Maybelline Colorshow Gold Gluttony.

3. Forest Essentials Kokum Butter & Honey Lip balm – FE products feature in almost all of my empties posts. I am obsessed with the Sweet Narangi Juice lip balm by FE (Reviewed HERE) and this time I gave Kokum Butter & Honey variant a try. There are only 3 vaiants in Forest Essentials lip balm (besides a newly launched Lip Cream)- Sugared Rose Petal, Sweet Narangi Juice and Kokum Butter and honey. The texture and hydration is exactly like the narangi one, only the fragrance is different. (Price: Rs 695 for 4 g, Expiry: 2 years)

4. Biotique Saffron Youth Dew Visibly Ageless Moisturizer – I got this moisturizer in winters and it worked perfectly in hydrating the dry, parched winter skin. Even though it doesn’t say but this is suitable only for colder weather and tad too much oily for summers (even on my dry skin). The product lasts long and only a teeny bit is required. (Price: Rs 270 for 50 g, Expiry: 3 years).

5. Wow Freedom Cleansing Foaming Feminine Wash- Got this along with my menstrual cup. I really like its floral fragrance. I am not a big fan of foaming products but I like the fragrance so much that I have already purchased another full size backup. If you don’t like fragrance in your feminine wash, this might not be for you. The product does its job well. (Price: Rs 199 for 60 ml, Expiry: 2 years).

Empties Vol. 2 + Mini reviews

 

 

Here is my recent empties in one post. I have linked some of the products to their full review.

 

  1. Dove Purely Pampering Almond cream and hibiscus body lotion: I really liked this body lotion and I have already bought another variant from this range- Invigorating ritual body lotion. Almond cream and hibiscus variant is so good for dry skin. It is super emollient and spreads easily. The skin is instantly moisturized and a small quantity goes a long way. This is perfect for winters and dry skinned people should buy this without hesitation. I will definitely repurchase this once my current one gets over (Price 395 for 400 ml).

 

2. Lakme Absolute Makeup remover: I have been using Maybelline makeup remover since forever and switched to this one recently. The packaging is spray packaging and does its job decently. Now I keep switching between this and Maybelline (Price: Rs 275 for 60 ml).

 

3. Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Lavender & Neroli SPF 25: This is my Holy Grail for summers and humid months. For winters this will feel a tad dry but this is amazing and perfect for summers for dry skin beauties. Read the full review HERE.

 

4. The Body Shop Strawberry Body Puree:  I got this as part of gift set and honestly I couldn’t wait to finish it up. I didn’t like it and kept it in my bag as hand cream. This is a bit sticky for my liking and I am not a fan of the fragrance. The shower gel of this range, on the other hand, is amazing.

 

5. Forest Essentials Night Treatment Cream Sandalwood & SaffronI LOVE this night cream and I cannot say it enough. This variant is for dry skin and I am going to repurchase this when my current night cream gets over. Read the full review HERE.

 

6. Forest Essentials Aloe Vera Juice: I got this on the insistence of SA mainly to mix with serums and ubtans. This was an okay product, easily dupable and nothing extraordinary. Will not repurchase (Price: Rs 550 for 100 ml).

 

7. Colorbar Black Fiesta nail polish: You know that I have a thing for nail arts and this nailpolish started the graffiti nail polish trend in India. Unfortunately, this range is now discontinued so I had to quickly grab one wherever I could find. It is now unavailable on Colorbar counters so I bought from Amazon. Read full review HERE.

 

8. Forest Essentials Kashmiri Saffron and Neem Delicate Facial Cleanser: : I loved this face wash and honestly it took me forever to finish this one bottle. I will definitely repurchase this but not just yet as I want to try other cleansers before I go back to this one. Read full review HERE

 

9. Sally Hansen Extra Strength Nail polish Remover: This is a fairly big bottle for its price and Sally Hansen is a well known brand so I picked this bottle from Westside when I saw this. However, I did not like this as it takes too much time in removing nailpolish. Will not repurchase. (Price: Rs 275 for 236.5 ml)

 

10. The Body Shop Moringa Softening Body MilkThis is another product meant for summers. I did not like this body lotion as it was not moisturizing enough for my dry skin. Plus I am not fan of spray packaging for body lotions. Read my full review HERE.
