I don't even know where the heck September disappeared to, it's nearly time to start Christmas shopping, and luckily my list of people to buy for is down quite a bit on last year! (Living in your own place means no Christmas presents for housemates just because...)
Evas Vitamin Cleansing Dessert - Berry Mix
Received in Memebox Superbox #51 My Cute Wishlist 2. RRP $18 USD. I wasn't uber impressed with this product. The texture is dessert like and whipped up and it foams fantastically but I found it a little drying on my combination skin type. I have ended up using this up while waiting on my Rose Rose Shop order to finally rock up. Sigh. It's fine as a second cleanser, but if you are prone to dry skin I would not recommend.
Tonymoly Apple Tox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream
Received in Memebox Superbox #66 Tonymoly. RRP $11 USD. This multi function massage cream smells incredible! I love the crisp apple scent. I have been using this regularly recently as part of my daily cleansing routine due to a serious product shortage mitigated by the forever processing RRS order. Grrr. While I didn't find this particularly amaze-balls in the peeling department, I actually have found it works well as a basic cleanser with gentle exfoliation. It's not a must have for me, but I could see myself purchasing again sometime.
L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water
I purchased this on special at Coles for $9.95 AUD. To be honest I'm not a huge fan of this micellar water after using Garniers offering to the market. I felt I got better value for money with Garnier and this L'Oreal one kind of stung a tiny near my eyes when removing makeup. That said it still does the job.
Hope Girl 140 Super Lash Mascara
Recieved from Memebox, for the life of me I can't recall their RRP price on this, however KoreaDepart have this currently at $19 USD or thereabouts. I loved this mascara seriously! It was long wearing, looked great on, non-irritating, and super lightweight despite my lashes looking loaded to the max! It is second favorite mascara ever (behind Majolica's Lash Meister) and I would definitely purchase again as my day to day one.
Banila Co Clean It Zero - Original
Received in Memebox Superbox #69 Banila Co. RRP $22 USD. Damn, this is good, I can see why this has such a cult following and won awards. This balm like cleanser has been my go to oil cleansing step for a few months now, and my skin has been fantastic while using it. I'm impressed with it's makeup removal but I kind of find the balm formulation a bit annoying compared to oil cleansers. Maybe it's the packaging and travel-ability, but I dunno, as much as I adore this product it hasn't been my choice for my next oil cleanser (which has not yet arrived anyway - hello RRS!?). I would buy this again, if only to try the other varieties on offer aimed at older skin.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
I was given this by a friend to try. Checking Priceline it retails for around $14 AUD. I find the formulation of this just not thick enough to do my blemishes and dark circles any favours. I'm glad this was a freebie, and I won't be repurchasing.
AND EDIT AS I POST THIS... MY ROSE ROSE SHOP ORDER HAS SHIPPED!
