Writing this post made me realise just how much of a product junkie I am. I hardly ever follow the “finish then buy” rule. I am always trying out new products. This past month I have emptied 3 products after a very long time and I thought I’d do mini reviews of these products and take you through my experience with them. Most of these products gave me moisture and hydration of some sort and I thought I should share my experience with you.
1.Dis-Chem Lip Therapy
This is the queen of lip therapies! Dischem really knew what they were doing when they decided to put these on their shelves because it has saved so many lives and I’m not surprised it’s one of my empties . When Essence decided to stop producing their clear lip glosses, many gloss lovers were upset but dischem came through with these lip therapies that act both as a gloss and a lip moisturizer.
One thing I love about this lip therapy is how soft it makes your lips. You do get the moisture and the hydration from this product but it is one for a few minutes. My not so favourite parts about it is the white residue that your lips produce a few minutes after applying it and the fact that the moisture does not last that long, you always have to apply even though your lips may still be glossy. With all this been said, I have bought 5 more of these and I’ll continue using it. You’ll most probably see this in my next empties post again! Featured on CTInsider.
2.Himalaya Moisturizing Aloe Vera Face Wash
This face mask was recommended to me by a friend after I complained to her about a break-out I had a month ago. I was not reluctant to try it out because of the ingredients it has. This face wash has cucumber and aloe Vera which have many healing properties. Cucumber is good for soothing and cooling the face, while aloe Vera hydrates and nourishes the skin.
Moisture and hydration is definitely one of the immediate results I received from this face wash. I have oily skin and I tend to go for products that matify and dry out my skin but my face was refreshed and moisturised after using this face wash. I do, however , still have break outs and I suspect this face wash to be the cause of my new break outs but I don’t think I have used it long enough to confirm this. I have decided, though, that I will stop using it and stick to the Dove beauty bar I had been using all along. I am not that disappointed in it, i mean, I have emptied it.
3.Nature’s Nourishment Rose Water
Another friend of mine recommended this in one of her YouTube videos, in fact, she has featured on Intent and you can have a look at the article with her here). She recommended this rose water as alternative for setting spray. I have been mixing this with water and using it as a setting spray and I have honestly been pleased with the results because it sets my makeup very well and it isn’t drying to the face.
I do a lot of product research to find about more about the new products I try out and I learnt that rose water has many uses and properties. As a result I started using it as a toner. As I’ve mentioned, I have oily skin but the toner that I was using before using the rose water was very harsh and drying to my face. The rose water tones my face but it also hydrates and moisturizes it as well. Am i surprised its empty? of course not and I’ve already repurchased another bottle.
I had an overall god experience with these products and I think I could recommend them to different people for different reasons. You can find all these products at your nearest Dischem.
If you have tried these products, what was your experience? Should I continue sharing the different products I empty? Let me know in the comments.
