Operation Use It Up!

Finally finished another batch of products!

1. Liese Clear Cube Wax 05: I didn't like this one much as the texture was a tad heavy even after diluting with water.

2. Kenzoki Clearwater Gel: Very refreshing toner that hydrates my skin effectively.

3. Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter: Love the sweet fruity scent and light non-greasy texture which absorbs very easily. I'll definitely re-purchase a full size after I get through my current stash of body lotions.

4. Testimo Eye Bright Up Base: This has been my daily staple for about five years now but as Testimo has been discontinued, I'll be switching to Urban Decay Primer Potion which has better lasting power but is a tad dry.

5. Ipsa Metabolizer Moist 2: This is the newly revamped Metabolizer that was just launched this fall. It does a pretty good job of hydrating my skin without any stickiness. It's a toner and moisturiser in one.

6. Kenzoki Blissful Beneficial Water: I love almost all of Kenzoki's body treatment sprays for their ultra relaxing scents. The scent lingers for quite awhile without being overpowering. This has since been revamped with a glass bottle packaging as Blissful Ginger Fizz.

7. Dior Miss Cherie L'eau: This is a green alternative to Miss Cherie which may be too sweet for some ladies. It has notes of bitter orange, gardenia and white musk. It is quite refreshing but a bit too green for my taste.

8. Jurlique Jasmine Shower Gel: I am addicted to the lovely jasmine scent of this shower gel! It is a bit watery but lathers up amazingly well without any need for a bath lily and leaves my bathroom smelling simply divine. It's horribly expensive at S$42 for a 200ml bottle so I would repurchase this only when there is a promotion going on. The ingredients list is below.

Is the Ipsa Metabolizer Moist 2 for normal or combination skin? TIA! =)

Haru said...

I'm not sure but it should be alright for normal skin, as it is not the most intensively hydrating in the line-up.

Im interested in the jurlique shower gel. How long does a bottle last though?

Haru said...

It lasts about one month with daily use.

If you think the UD Primer Potion is a bit too drying, try NARS, it is a bit less drying. I've used both.
