Recent empties #2 feat. Missha & Herbal Essence
It’s incredible, but I’ve managed to accumulate enough empties again for another “recent empties” post! And I as I’m writing this I have a couple more products that are close to being done, so I think this might turn into a regular series! What do you guys think?
- Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule
This was highly raved by Kerry from Skin & Tonics, and she rated it superior to the Esteé Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum. I’ve never tried the latter, but I thought the Missha ampoule wasn’t bad. It has a nice consistency that’s not too rich and did a good job of hydrating my skin. It didn’t do much for my dark spots, but I do like its anti-aging properties and may repurchase this in the future.
- Hanaka Pore Reduce Charcoal Mask
This was my first experience with jelly masks, and I was quite pleased. It’s much gentler than my Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask and leaves my skin really bright and hydrated. This didn’t give me that squeaky clean feeling, but it did a great job opening up my pores and pulling all the sebum to the surface. I think I still prefer my clay mask for deep cleaning, but this is a great alternative for those with sensitive skin.
- C20 Pure Vitamin C 21.5 Advanced Serum
Another highly raved product, but for me it was a huge disappointment. Used this for 6 weeks straight and it did nothing for my dark spots :( It was also pain to wait 20 minutes every night for the l-ascorbic acid to do its job, and the non-airtight packaging means faster oxidization. Lots of trouble, little results. Boo.
- Herbal Essences Naked Cleansing Conditioner
This cleansing shampoo was pretty amazing at first, and it did make my hair really soft. However, it soon began building up, leaving my roots flat and almost greasy :( I ended up using this as a conditioner for the ends of my hair, and that worked really well. I won’t repurchase this, but I may purchase the color-safe version (in the red bottle) as it’s not as rich as this one.
So yes, the hunt for something that can get rid of my dark spots continues. If you have any product recommendations, please let me know! Have a wonderful week!
