Jan - March Empties + short reviews: The Body Shop, Hair Mask, Perfume, etc.

Hey there everyone!

I've been a little busy these past couple months, so I apologize for the lack of posts. 

Today I'm back with another empties post! 
This winter has been the coldest to be recorded in the past... 10 years? And I believe it. I've been wearing leggings/stockings under my jeans and some days I feel like doubling up the leggings. IT'S FAR TOO COLD OUTSIDE. 

Anyway, because it's been so cold out, I've been looking for more hydrating products. First winter where I've had dry patches of skin all over my face.

KOSE- Softymo Speedy Cleansing Foam

Hello everyone! 

How are your New Years Resolutions coming along? I didn't really make any, since I knew I would break them almost immediately. I did tell myself I would try waking up and going to sleep earlier. I have failed. But I am keeping up with writing down everything I need to do for the day or the next day. It helps me stay organized. 

Anyway, I'm reviewing a cleanser today. I haven't found one that I've liked enough to stick with. But so far with this one, I like it enough that I may repurchase after it's finished. 
I usually use a gentle cleanser for the morning and a gentle exfoliating facial cleanser for the evening. 

I really enjoy using Japanese skincare products. Kose is quite popular in Japan and Softymo is quite affordable. 
Back in High School I used their oil based cleanser, which I didn't like at the time, but I am looking to repurchase in the future. 

Let's take a closer look!

The Face Shop - Chia Seed Watery Eye & Spot Essence Review

Hello 2015! Hope you had a wonderful New Years. I didn't do anything too exciting. It was far too cold to celebrate outside so I stayed in instead. No regrets! The older I get, the more I just want to stay indoors and just be in my PJs. Anyone else feel the same?

Anyway, last year when I was getting into skincare my under eyes were neglected. I'm a little self conscious of my dark circles, so I wanted to find something to help with them.

I did a bit of research and behold, The Face Shop Chia Seed Watery Eye & Spot essence!

The Face Shop Chia Seed line is very popular and is known for its hydration. When I first started reading up on what products to try my friend recommended their Chia Seed line.

Fall/Winter Empties + short reviews. L'Occitane, Missha and The Body Shop

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday! I can't believe it's already going to be 2015 soon! Time sure flies!

I'm surprised with how much I managed to use up these past couple of months. I also can't believe I managed to keep all the containers for so long.

These posts will be few and far between, but let's take a look at what I managed to use up from the past couple months!

Etude House: Goodbye Pore Ever: Pore Primer Essence Review

I've actually had this particular product for a while now. I just never got to reviewing it till now unfortunately. 
I really like Etude House. I only have one lipstick of theirs, so majority of the products I've tried are skincare items. 

So when I began caring for my skin around last year, one of the biggest things I didn't like about my face was my pores. Granted, they're not as big as others, but enough that I get a really oily face. 
A friend of my recommended I check out their pore cleansing line to help combat my pores. 

As you know, I have tried their pore toner and I love it! But you can check out the other products they have here.

Simple Holiday Nails

Well hey there everyone! I'm back! I had a crazy semester. Probably the busiest one I've ever had! But I finished my last final of the year on Tuesday, so I'm back to my regular scheduled blog postings.

When I finished my finals, the first thing I did was paint my nails. I worked my butt off all semester, time to paint my nails and relax! But also, once January rolls around, I'll once again be too busy to paint them. Have to enjoy them while I can!

I'm not an expert nail artist by any means. I'm still in the process of trying to stead my left hand when I paint my right hand. But baby steps right?

As you can see, it's very very simple. And honestly, you don't even need to wear it just for Christmas.

Sephora (Chloe Perfume) and The Face Shop Haul

Why, hello there. Sorry I've been MIA for the past couple of weeks. School started again, and it's looking to be my busiest and most difficult.

Even when I'm busy, it hasn't stopped me from buying a few things here and there. I hardly shop at Sephora, but they had this limited edition Chloe perfume set I just couldn't pass up.

The roller ball set is only available online through Sephora, and currently it is on sale for $36.
