Finished Products in October 2010

I didn't manage to finish anything on the month of September. But fortunately I managed to finish a few products, two body products and two lip products to be exact. Here they are:

This sunscreen has the best sunscreen scent ever! I really like the mild rose scent and it lingered quite a while on me. It absorbed really well and didn't leave any stickiness on my skin. Even though the SPF is enough for daily uses but I'll need higher SPF for some occasions. I'll definitely repurchase this body sunscreen if I can find it cheaper or when I'm in Korea because it's quite pricey at here.

This is my first B&BW products but I'm already hooked with it. I  really like the scent and it moisturized my skin pretty well. Plus the travel size comes in very handy. Thanks to Nic for letting me to try this! :)

I really love this lips essence! I used it as a clear lipgloss.  With a hint of golden sheen, it looks really great both on top of lipstick and even on its own. It's very moisturizing and not too sticky which is great.  And I love the mild cherry scent in it. The only thing that bothers me is when it's almost finished, it's very hard to reach the essence on the bottom of the tube. But still, I'll happily repurchase this!

Carmex Green Apple Moisturizing Lip Balm
To me this is just an OK lip balm. I'll still prefer Burt's Bess lip balm over this one. As the name suggests, it's apple flavored. I love apple and that's the reason why I picked up this lip balm, but the scent is too artificial to me. It moisturized my lips decently, but it's not enough to use on night. I don't think I'll repurchase this.

Till next time!

Hi Dina,

Great job finishing all those products! We only have boring regular Carmex here so the green apple version sounds interesting but it sounds like a dud product from your review. The Face Shop sunscreen has awesome packaging, very cute. I still need to try out their stuff. Thanks for the helpful reviews. :)

Carmex is one of the worst chapsticks out in the market. I absolutely hate it - it made my lips even drier and I had to constantly apply it. The Canmake lip essence sounds really nice. I like the packaging!

Gaby said...

Yey for empties!

I should definitely try Carmex lipbalms... this one looks yummy!

Marie said...

Ur canmake lip gloss sounds really interesting! I gotta pick up one to try :)

coffretgorge said...

im on my 2nd white rose sunscreen now, its the best body sunscreen i've tried so far. how much is it there? i think its Php550 here (approx.USD12)

haha we seem to like the same products, i also have the canmake lip essence, and i agree, it gives a pretty iridescent gloss to the lips, and its moisturizing! perfect! :) although, the packaging contains a small amount yes?

aw, sorry you didnt like the carmex lip balm, i have the original (pot packaging) as well as the strawberry variant (tube packaging) and i love them both, i use them alternately during night time. ^_^

I'm so glad you like the B&BW P.S. I Love You scent! It's my favorite!
I recently got hired at B&BW for seasonal-part time and I am so excited. I hope I make a lot of sales on P.S. I Love You because I think everyone should love it!

♥ Starryxuan said...

I think bath products are the only ones that I can consistently finish every month lol congrats on finishing some lippies though! The Canmake Lip Essense has such a cute bottle design; for a second I thought it was RMK lol

mizcushy said...

MKL said...

Sometimes it's hard to understand what you women are talking about :P

Denysia said...

Great job on finishing these products! I need to check out Bath and Body works soon! :)

Shop N' Chomp said...

Nice job on finishing all that, Dina! =D I like the packaging on the Canmake lip essence!

mr. pineapple man said...

RicAdeMus said...

We've got to do a better job with sunscreen--especailly me when I'm working in the yard I forget. My wife's not a big fan of BBW, but my nieces love it. I think they'd live in the store if they could.

Doesn't it feel great when you finish a product ? It's kind of liberating, knowing that your money didn't go down the drain and that there wasn't any wastage because of course .. this can happen !

You are very lucky to be able to access these brands. Your reviews make it very tempting for me to go have a look online for these products but it's frustrating that one cannot find them here !

Jennifer said...

it's in foam so it's very convenient ^_^ which cleansing oil are you using?

ashura said...

You got me interested in the Canmake Lip essence!

slowbrogal said...

You're tempting me to haul for the Canmake Lip Essence...:p

Witoxicity said...

Well done for reaching the bottom of these products! The Canmake Lip Essence sounds fantastic. :)

Stephanie said...

The lip essence sounds pretty cool. I'm not a big fan of carmex. I think the taste is kinda funny. Burt's is definitely better!

Dizzy said...

I'm the opposite of you I love the Carmex Green Apple Moisturizing Lip Balm, but don't like Burt's Bees lip balm, maybe it's cause of the waxy texture of the product.

Nic Nic said...

i am intrigued by the canmake lip essence! i tried the kinda newer version of it and it wasn't as moisturizing as it could be. good know this one works!
