Empties – June 2019

Empties June 2019

Hello hello. This is the first post of July! Can’t believe that first half of the year is already finished. Coming up months will pass very fast due to all the festivities around! I haven’t posted a lot in this month due to work load, I will try my best to post as much as I can. Coming to the post, following are the empties of June. I tried lot of samples this month as part of my project pan June. Following are empties, starting from full sized products to samples.

Wishtrend Vitamin 75 Maximizing cream

It makes my skin very soft and nourished. I use this as a day time moisturizer when my skin feels dry and as night cream otherwise. This is a very nice cream for combination skin that is towards dry side.


I absolutely love it and will repurchase it for sure.

Rustic Art Aloe Vera Gel

I always forget to include this in my empties. Aloe vera gel is my go to skin saviour. I have empties multiple jars of this.


No, I love this to the bits and I have 2 backups but I think I should give another brands a try! You can get it from here.

Juicy Chemistry Aloe Water

Such a unique product by Juicy Chemistry! This hydrosol is nice hydrating; it doesn’t smell nice but works wonderfully.


Yes but I do want to try out other variants of hydrosols before repurchasing this.

Juicy Chemistry Argan & Mango Butter Hair Masque

It is a nourishing spa treatment to your hair. Love the spa feeling. I love how mouisturising this masque is!


Yes it is worth a repurchase but I do want to try out something made with bhringraj once I finish all my hair oils.

Juicy Chemistry Fenugreek and Yogurt Shampoo Bar

I am not very comfortable with using the shampoo bars as I haven’t used it ever. It takes more efforts for me. Thankfully, this soap is versatile and can be used as body wash too. I used this as body wash.


No, I might try this later but not now.

Plum Chamomile and White Tea Sheer Matte Day Cream SPF50

I have mentioned a few times before that this sunscreen is not meant for my skin type. I used it as body sunscreen and finally finished it.



Annmarie Purifying Mud Mask

I was targeting to finish it by August but surprisingly there is just 1 usage left which I will be using today or tomorrow! My t-zone became very oily and reactive due to heat, I found this mask calming and purifying. Hence, I used this more.


No, I want to try out something from indie brand that is not very expensive. PS – I absolutely love this mask.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Crème

While it does control sebum production for hours, it does provide adequate moisture to my dry cheeks. It is the dream product of any oily/combo skinned beauty. You need just a pea sized amount to cover face, a little goes long way. The only thing I don’t like is the artificial fragrance. I have posted short review on Instagram.

The Body Shop Drop of Youth Crème . As you guys know that I am on project pan, I am testing out different samples this month. I was given 2 samples (1.5ml each) of Drop of Youth Crème by the @thebodyshopindia store when I purchased a perfume. As the weather is giving shocks from extreme hot temperature to sudden rains, it is a perfect time to test out the product. . . Consistency . TBS Drops of youth crème has a nice gel crème like consistency. It is fast absorbing and spreads easily, gives satin matte finish. . . Fragrance . It does have a mild artificial fragrance which I don’t like. Thankfully, it fades away in minutes. . . Performance . I am stunned to see how effective gel crème this is! While it does control sebum production for hours, it does provide adequate moisture to my dry cheeks. It is the dream product of any oily/combo skinned beauty. . You need just a pea sized amount to cover face, a little goes long way. I have been using this from more than a week now and still the tiny 3ml quantity will last me for next 2 or 3 days. . . Will I purchase full sized product? . Although I absolutely love this gel crème, I don’t prefer artificial fragrance in skincare routine, so nope I won’t purchase it. . . 👍 Thumbs Up . 🍃 Cruelty free and vegan 🍃 Gel crème consistency – very easy to spread 🍃 Quick absorbing crème 🍃 A little goes long way 🍃 Provides adequate moisture to normal skin and controls oil production 🍃 Nice day time moisturizer for oily to combination skin type . . 👎 Thumbs Down . 👎 Artificial fragrance . .

I’m from Vitamin Tree Mask Water Gel

It is a very light weight watery gel, best for summers. It not only keeps excess oil secretion on my t-zone balanced but also moisturizes my normal cheeks really well. Read full review over here.


No, I want to try out some other gel.

Klairs Airy UV Essence SPF50 PA++++

I have talked a lot about this, right? It’s my my absolute favourite sunscreen. Full review is up here.


Hell yes – forever repurchase!

Klairs Midday blue sun lotion SPF40 PA++

Klairs has upgraded the sunscreen by launching Airy UV Essence. As I used this I will give my thoughts. It is a bit hard to blend and leaves a white caste. However, I love the calming fragrance of lavender! Thank you Dear Klairs for letting me know that your new launch is so worth.

Kama Ayurveda Ubtan

I really enjoyed using this ubtan. It cleanses the skin and takes out all the dirt, gunk and dead cells. Unlike many ubtans, this did not dry out my skin – thanks to almonds and fenugreek. The best part is In spite of having turmeric, the ubtan doesn’t leave any yellow stains on towel or clothes. I love how fine the particles are – I have experienced very uneven particles especially with ubtans from Indian brands but not the case with Kama. Read full review here.

Will I Purchase?

No, I want to try out something from indie brand.

Etude House Collagen Eye Patch

I got this free with my order from yesstyle. I am neither a user nor a supporter of one time use plastic masks. I used this only because I had. Single time usage is not enough to form opinion. As first impressions – my under eye area was soft and nourished post removing the patches.

Will I Purchase?


Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream

As the name says this is a nourishing and calming cream. I found it really nice and soothing.

Will I Purchase?

I will definitely purchase the full size version.
