It’s been a while since I wrote a post about empties, longer than I realised! I’ll try to catch up on them as I have gone through quite a few of skincare and makeup products in 2015.
If you have been following my blog you probably already saw Kiehl’s Centella Skin Calming Facial Cleanser review. This is a great gentle cleanser that I use in the morning. It doesn’t leave any residue on the skin and it doesn’t make my skin tight or dry. It’s a part of Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions range.
Ingredients: WATER, GLYCERIN, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, STEARYL ALCOHOL, SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE, METHYLPARABEN,PROPYLPARABEN, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, AMMONIUM POLYACRYLDIMETHYLTAURAMIDE, AMMONIUM POLYACRYLOYLDIMETHYL TAURATE, CENTELLA ASIATICA EXTRACT, CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA (MATRICARIA) FLOWER EXTRACT
Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective™ Clarity-Activating Toner is one of my favourite facial toners. It’s light and hydrating, formulated without parabens and fragrance. I love how it makes my skin soft and comfortable. I’m on my second bottle now, it’s a HG for my morning and evening skincare routine. Note: this toner claims to help pigmentation and texture of the skin, but I can’t really comment on those as I don’t have an issue with either.
Ingredients: AQUA, GLYCERIN, DIPROPYLENE GLYCOL, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, ALCOHOL DENAT, PHENOXYETHANOL, SODIUM CITRATE, PPG-6-DECYLTETRADECETH-30, CITRIC ACID, HYDROXYPROPYL TETRAHYDROPYRANTRIOL, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, SALICYLIC ACID, XANTHAN GUM, LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA, DISODIUM EDTA, LINALOOL, CITRUS AURANTIUM TACHIBANA PEEL EXTRACT, PAEONIA SUFFRUTICOSA, METHYL GLUCETH-10,3-O-ETHYL ASCORBIC ACID, FMLA
Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Micellar Solution is another product I love, reviewed here a while ago. It is still the best micellar solution I tried, the one I can’t be without. It takes off all of my makeup, even the stubborn waterproof eyeliners, and it doesn’t irritate my eyes at all. A winner!
Ingredients: WATER, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERIN , POLOXAMER 184, DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE, DISODIUM EDTA, PANTHENOL, POLYAMINOPROPYL BIGUANIDE, FRAGRANCE
Vichy 48 Hour ‘No-Trace’ Anti-Perspirant Deodorant is another one of my must-haves. I’ve been using it for years and it never lets me down! It’s hypoallergenic and paraben and alcohol free.
Ingredients: ISOBUTANE,AQUA / WATER,,DIMETHICONE,ALUMINUM CHLOROHYDRATE,PHENOXYETHANOL,LAURYL PEG-9 POLYDIMETHYLSILOXYETHYL DIMETHICONE,TETRASODIUM GLUTAMATE DIACETATE,DIMETHICONOL,PARFUM / FRAGRANCE
La Roche-Posay Hydraphase UV Intense Rich is a face cream I’ve been enjoying during these cooler and particularly windy days. It contains La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, glycerin and sodium hyaluronate. As the name suggests this cream has a rich, but not heavy, texture that helps particularly dry, very dry and sensitive skin. It helped protect my skin against harsh outsde conditions and kept it hydrated. I would purchase it again.
