Welcome to The Diary of a Beauty Hoarder. (loljk… No, really…) I have the Innisfree Kale Anti-Oxidant Lotion (estimated PHP 500) here that came with my very first Althea Korea haul. And while it seems that this particular variant is no longer available on Althea, there are still other variants that can be found there.

I need to look at my stash once a month to see how many hoarded body and skin care products are still up for use. When I do, it reminds me to go on a temporary ban to finish up what’s left. Yup, it’s because I’m a sucker for sales. *shrugs* But before we get lost in hoarder issues, let’s have a look at what I actually did manage to finish:
Clockwise From Top: Bath and Body Works, Welcos, and l’Occitane
New Year, New Stash! The holidays may bring about brand new beauty loot, but I’m not forgetting to use up all the stuff I already have. Without further ado, here are my December empties:
The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Toner and Too Cool for School Morocco Ghassoul Cleanser
Random Personal Update: I pledged 20 books on Good Reads, and I’ve still got 8 books to go before the end of the year. Still going through a lot of YA thrillers, because that’s often the way to get me to finish a book within 10 days. (Meaning, I elect to lose sleep to go through a page-turner.)
Also, re-watching the entire Harry Potter series in time for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It’s something of a personal tradition that started with every HP book release. Only then, I used to re-read the books. I don’t have the time to do that now, so the condensed 2-hour version should suffice. (BTW, have you guys seen the fanart of the HP-themed shadow palettes? Merlin’s beard, please let them become a reality!)
Buuut, going back to beauty, here are my latest empties. There’s quite a bit of them this time:
Clockwise from Top-Left: Nivea Extra White Firming Body Lotion, The Body Shop Shea Body Butter, Nivea Creme, Zenutrients Rich Cocoa Body Butter
I found this video where the Buzzfeed ladies try edible makeup, and it got me thinking. “What are the cosmetics produced in the Philippines that are good enough to eat?” I haven’t heard of such a local product yet that is safe enough to spoon into the mouth, but Zenutrients Rich Cocoa Body Butter (PHP 284) sure comes close.
Zenutrients Rich Cocoa Body Butter
