Empties November 2019

Hello, hello!

Another month’s worth of empties – I think that I’ve made really great progress on my stash this month! Because I’m on a low-buy (only buying things when necessary, if I say that I would re-purchase it means eventually, not right away).

Let’s take a look:

Skincare

Empties November 2019 - Skincare

Akar Skin Balance Toning Mist – This was from my Petit Vour subscription. I loved it a lot and would love to buy a full size eventually. Review is here.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream – Another Petit Vour gem that I loved. Lightweight hydration. Would purchase this one. Review is here.

By Anhesa Cedar Face Cream – I won this in a giveaway. This one is great for when my skin is dry and I need a moisture boost. And it smells wonderful. Would buy. Review is here.

Honua Skincare Pa’akai Cleansing Cream – This was such a dreamy cleansing cream from my Petit Vour subscription. Would LOVE to buy a full size of this but have so many cleansers to use up. Review is here.

Cosmessential Premium Facial Serum The Grande – This was a PR sample. It worked really well for me. It was lightweight, super-hydrating and filled with loads of anti-aging ingredients. Would buy if I didn’t have several more serums to use up. Review is here.

Haircare:

Empties November 2019 - Haircare

Maui Moisture Color Protection + Sea Minerals Shampoo & Conditioner – I’ve purchased several of the Maui Moisture formulations over the past year (or two). This one might be my favourite! It helped keep my colour from fading fast and made my hair feel soft and clean. I’ll probably buy this again (eventually). Review is here.

Makeup:

Empties November 2019 - Makeup

Harvest Natural Beauty Lengthening Organic Mascara – Another Petit Vour box item. This wasn’t the mascara for me as it isn’t waterproof and my eyes water easily. If you don’t have watery eyes, you might like it a lot. Review is here.

Essence I ❤ Extreme Volume Mascara (Waterproof) – This is one of my go-to mascaras. It adds volume, holds a curl and its waterproof. Been buying this mascara since 2016! Review is here.

Joik Gloss & Care Lip Oil – My friend brought this back from Estonia a few months ago. I’m sad that it is empty because I love it so much! I bought my first one back in 2017 when I travelled to Estonia. International shipping is quite expensive, so this is going on the wishlist. Review is here.

There were a few more products that I’m so close to finishing up, hopefully they’ll be in next month’s empties. Do you finish up much this month?

Honua Skincare Pa’akai Cleansing Cream Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Pa’akai Cleansing Cream from Honua Hawaiian Skincare that came in my August Petit Vour box [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Honua Pa'akai Cleansing Cream

Cleansing Hawaiian salt and antioxidant rich hibiscus combine to create a gentle daily cleanser that will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. Seaweed extract works to strengthen and renew the skin, while accelerating the natural skin repair process. The Pa’akai Cleansing Cream is great for all skin types.

Honua Pa'akai Cleansing Cream

The Pa’akai Cleansing Cream is super gentle, with a very faint rose scent. It is geared for all skin types, and as someone with sensitive skin, I can see this working for just about anyone (unless you have a sensitivity / allergy to one of the ingredients). My skin feels clean, hydrated and smooth after using.
