January Skincare and Haircare Empties 2016

by - 26 January

Trash time!
Here are what I've used up the past few months.

Avalon Organics Hydrating Toner 207 ml
  • Hypo-allergenic for sensitive skin and contains organic ingredients. 
  • No synthetic fragrances, phthalates, harsh sulfates, lauryl / laureth sulfate and parabens.
  • 100% Vegetarian ingredients, certified organic.
  • Not tested on animals.
Thoughts : It's a good toner. I didn't get any breakouts so I know it's good for my sensitive skin and that's what I most like about it apart from the good ingredients and the points I mentioned above. Already finished two bottles of this.

Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle 70ml
  • Has dimethicones and alcohol (bummer)
Thoughts : BUT it stays true to the claim. Within 3 minutes my hair is significantly softer and more manageable during the wash and after drying. I already have a backup in the shower.

Cathy Valencia Papaya Triple Whitening Soap 135g
  • Has SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), Sodium Hydroxide, "Perfume Water", FD & C Yellow #6, Coconut Oil, Glycerin, Alkalide Capain, Cerecin and Papain, Vitamin E & A ( in order of what was written in the box)
Thoughts : I got it at this event. It's nothing special. Didn't notice anything with my skin. Not harsh on the body and leaves it clean-feeling though. I won't be repurchasing.

Aura 100% Pure Argan Oil 70ml
  • 100% pure cold-pressed Argan Oil
Thoughts : Great argan oil. I mean it's essentially the same as the other pure Argan oils that I've tried. But I do like the glass bottle and gold cap, it feels so luxe and looks great in a vanity. It's also in a pump dispenser which is great. It's cheap too! For something pure I mean. I think it's around Php 1000 + for a bottle. The only con I can think of is that it's in a clear bottle, as I've mentioned here Argan Oil keeps better if it's in a tinted bottle. Already in my list under things I can repurchase.

january_2016_empties_skincare_beauty_frommanilawithlove_2Pond's Flawless White BB+ Beige Spf 30 PA++ 25g
  • Has a lot of chemicals and other ingredients that I don't really approve of like fragrance. I don't even want to mention all of them.
Thoughts : Sheer buildable to Light. Smooth and easy to apply. Light on the skin with a natural finish. Doesn't last long unless used with a primer and set with a good powder. Has a scent to it that I don't like - a little strong in my opinion. Recommend for people who're only looking for a light tinted-sunscreen / tinted-moisturizer type of everyday base. Got it in my Pond's Exclusive BDJ box. Will not be repurchasing.

Aloe Derma 99% Organic Aloe Gel 45g
  • Organic
  • 99% Aloe Vera Gel
Thoughts : Pricey for 45g compared to other brands (Etude, Tony Moly) but those have other ingredients to it and preservatives this one is purely organic and 99% Aloe. Works well as a light moisturizer and it didn't break me out. Perfect moisturizer under makeup! Also got this in another BDJ box.

Dove Oxygen Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Has SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate)
  • Contains fragrance
  • "Oxygen-infused"
Thoughts : Pretty decent. Didn't make my chemically damaged hair soft and manageable as with other shampoos I've tried but it didn't make it worse. The clear blue gel infused with what I assume are oxygen bubbles are interesting though. The conditioner is okay as well. Also received this in a BDJ box,
