Monica's empties #3

I have accumulated some empties since the last post. Many of them were finished some time ago, the empties box was full, I decided it was time to tell you about them and throw them away. I will update you with this post once in several months, after thoroughly testing the products and having a clear opinion on them to share with you. So without further ado, let's see the empties :
Make-up removers :
Gerocossen Argan Bio cleansing milk for face, eyes and lips - efficient make-up remover, especially for drier skin (the argan oil is nourishing to the skin; it has a thicker texture). The price is also very convenient, therefore I gave it the -A grade (The smell was a little too strong; I didn't like the thicker texture, it made it more difficult for me to use).
L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Micellar Gel - very effective micellar make-up remover, very easy to use and time saving. I gave it the B grade (it is designed for sensitive eyes and my eyes, although not sensitive, stung a little from it).
Gerovital Happiness Face cleansing gel cream - an efficient make-up remover with a yummy smell! The price is also very convenient, you can easily find it in stores, therefore I give it the -A grade (100ml quantity is too small! I want more!).
Cora maxi make-up remover pads - still my favourites at the moment; 100% cotton, 40 pieces per pack; soft and large - easy to use and covering a larger face area I use a smaller number overall. They don't shred and efficiently remove make-up at a decent price of aprox. 5 ron. I gave them the A grade! 
Hair care :
Batiste dry shampoo (xxl volume) - for all of you with oily hair like me Batiste dry shampoo is a miracle! I can save the look of my hair whenever I need to, without having to worry about it looking greasy and flat! I just love the XXL Volume especially for the oomph it gives to my hair! I'm so very happy that I found it. I will definitely buy it and keep it ready to save the day...the bad hair day. It is a wonderful product so I wholeheartedly gave it the A grade.
Body and nail care :
Le Petit Marseillais Mandarin & Citron Vert Shower Gel - good daily shower gel, very suitable for the hotter seasons. It cleans the skin, leaving it refreshed and energized, but not very moisturized. It can be bought a decent price from the stores. Therefore I give it the C grade.
Yves Rocher Macadamia Nuts from Guatemala velvety shower cream - very good quality product for the price (it cleans well, nourishes and perfumes the skin). The A grade !
Lady Speed Stick Power Wild Freesia Antiperspirant Deodorant - good, efficient product for me in the summer time; I don't use it all year long, it's not healthy for the skin. I gave it the B grade (due to the unhealthy clogging of the skin).
Thai Spa Body Butter with Raspberry & Blackberry - a good product for normal to slightly dry skin (I have normal skin and it worked for me in the winter time; my mom who has very dry skin has tried it several times and it didn't provide the moisturization she needed, she felt the need to further moisturize afterwards). I give it the B grade (it is designed for dry to very dry skin - it doesn't nourish enough).
Oriflame 2 in 1 Protecting Hand and Nail Cream - a decent hand cream for the warmer seasons; it does not work for me in the colder seasons. It has an affordable price and can be easily found. I gave it the C grade.
Face care :
Elmiplant Seametry restructuring anti-aging eye serum - a great eye cream (very nourishing) at an affordable price. I give it the B grade (hasn't reduced the bags under the eyes, it also has perfume, a well known irritant, not recommended for the eye area).
Gerovital H3 Classic face cream - review soon (I realized I forgot to publish it), I'll link it here.                                                                            Perfumes :
Sephora Eau de Toilette Lemon Verbena - a great day to day perfume to wear in the hotter seasons. It is travel-friendly and easy to use. My only regret is that it isn't bigger in size! I simply love it! I gave it the -A grade (too small in size, lasts on me for about 2 hours).
Make-up :
Revlon Colorstay concealer - almost at the end of its validity, started to change its smell so I let it go. It is a great quality product for its price-range. It covers well the dark circles and stays on if set with powder. I gave it the B grade.
That's it! I'll publish the next empties as soon as I gather more products!  Until next time ,


  1. You have so many goodies! I personally love the shower cream from Yves Rocher and Batiste dry shampoo. It saves my look every single time. And now, with a special offer from them and Sensiblu I have the opportunity to try more types at a convenient price (15lei).
    I appreciate this kind of post, keep up with the good work :)

    1. Thank you, I have accumulated these in around two months or more. I have another batch of finished products that are still waiting for me to review them and then they'll be moved into the empties box. I'm glad you like this type of post and you find it useful, that's why I wrote it. Kisses!
