November Favourites and Empties!

Hi guys! How are you?

This post was meant to be written and posted last week but last week have been so hectic and at the same time I’m sick (and still not recovering, in fact its getting worse) so I can’t really spare a time to write a blog post. But you know, a part of me is really happy to be busy again because this semester has been too calm for me compared to my previous semesters.

P.S: I was nominated for versatile blogger and blogger recognition award, so sorry I haven’t be able to write a post about my nomination yet:( I’m really busy lately. But once again thank you for those who nominated me!

Anyway, November is coming to an end! Time flies so fast but I’m really happy because my favorite month is coming! And so today, I’m going to tell you my November favorite and empties! This kind of post is rather new in my blog, I never write  a monthly favorite but I’ll probably gonna write this kind of post every month starting from now.

I’m gonna write a quick review for each product, and whether will I repurchase the product or not for empties. Without further ado, here we go!

The Empties

This month, I have 3 empties. A micellar water from bioderma, toner from Klairs, and moisturizer from Kiehls.

Bioderma sensibio h2o is currently one of most famous micellar water in Indonesia, a lot of people have this micellar water as their holy grail. This micellar water is really gentle and  suitable for all skin type including sensitive skin. It also an alcohol-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic micellar water. What I love about this micellar water is that this is non-irritating cleanser and it works effectively in removing my makeup, however for me it didn’t remove my waterproof makeup thoroughly.

Will I repurchase this? No, in my opinion, Bioderma Sensibio H2O is way too pricey for a micellar water, there are lots of micellar water (or cleansing water) that works the as great as bioderma and yet more affordable, such as l’oreal and garnier.

Klairs – Supple Preparation Facial Toner

I actually posted a review about this toner last week, if you haven’t read it yet you can read it in here. This is my HG toner so far, it’s really hydrating and it also calmed my skin everytime my skin is irritated. This is definitely my go-to toner everytime my skin feels dry and I need a quick hydration, I use this toner as an after cleansing toner and refresher.

Will I repurchase this?  Obviously yes, I’ve repurchased this 4 times and I currently waiting for my next bottle to be arrived.

Kiehls – Ultra Facial Oil-free Gel Cream

I’ve been using this moisturizer since 3 months ago, and I actually have a love-hate relationship with this gel moisturizer. I love this moisturizer because it is really lightweight and absorbed quickly, it feels like I am applying a really fresh water to my face because this gel cream literally melts into my skin right when I apply this to my skin. It felt so refreshing and hydrating, but I kinda hate this moisturizer because it contains an alcohol. So this moisturizer is kinda not usable when my skin is irritated, because it definitely gonna make my skin stings a lot. And the problem is, alcohol denat is third on the ingredient list, meaning this moisturizer contains a lots of it, so I guess the alcohol in this moisturizer is the bad alcohol.

Repurchase? for now, no. If Kiehls decided to ditch alcohol from this moisturizer, I probably will repurchase this. But for now, I’d rather look for another alcohol-free moisturizer.

The Favorites.

Because I have 3 empties, I also gonna list my top 3 this month favorite. They are Pixi – Glow Tonic, Klairs – Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask, and The Ordinary – Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

Pixi – Glow Tonic

I’ve been using this exfoliating toner since the beginning of november, and I’m asking myself why didn’t I buy this sooner? So far this exfoliating toner has been doing an amazing job in brightening my skin and reducing the acne scars. I’m not ready to give my final verdict yet, but so far so good! Full review is coming next month, stay tuned!

Klairs – Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask

I really like combining pixi glow tonic and this in my pm routine, I see the maximum benefit when I use these two. I really enjoy using this mask as my sleeping mask, it brighten my skin in the morning and I always woke up with a non-greasy face everytime I use this. Read the full review in here.

The Ordinary – Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

This one is the least expected to be my favorite products, in fact I don’t even know why I bought this product in the first place. This thick moisturizer is definitely not my kind of moisturizer. But I immediately change my mind by the time I try this moisturizer. This is a non-greasy moisturizer and really hydrating, it doesn’t make my face look greasy at all, it has a semi-matte finish. It kinda has a sticky finish though, but it’ll disappear in a minute. Fyi, this moisturizer is silicone-free, alcohol-free, nut-free, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Okay so that is my November favorite and empties, what about you? what is your november favorite? Share with me on the comment box below!

I know its kinda late but, happy thanks giving! Hope you have a great one!
