Bottom of the Bottle: September 2015

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...)

Mmmm granny smith craving....

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.
