EauMG’s September 2018 Empties

Yankees game 2018

I can’t believe it but I went through the month without buying any beauty-related products. Can you believe it? Because I barely can. I was faced with many temptations, but I stayed strong. I have so much back-stock right now. Plus, the holidays are coming up and I remember last  year that every item I wanted went on sale in November. Basically, I’m trying to hold out to November to buy the things I need or want.

It also helped that the loved ones in my life… Continue reading | 6 Comments

EauMG’s August 2018 Empties

August 2018 Empties

Can you believe summer is almost over?!

I have tried to take it easy. I bought Kérastase Chronologiste Gommage Pre-Shampoo. Is it a necessary product? Probably not but I like how it makes my scalp feel. I’m highly skeptical of scalp scrubs but I want to be as extra as I can be.

I was doing good and then had a splurge on the last weekend on the month buying an Ormonde Jayne travel set, Mugler Angel Muse and a La Prairie toner. Oh, well.

Here’s my empties for September. Get cozy… Continue reading | 8 Comments

EauMG’s Favorite Shower Gels

Marilyn Monroe Shower

 

As corny as it sounds, I view bathing as a ritual. For me, it represents rebirth. At the end of the day, I can wash away my sorrows and start fresh. In the morning, I can prepare myself for an erratic day. For five or ten minutes daily, this is my time to start over. And as woo as it sounds, I take this time to reflect on the positive things in my life¹, of course, while using products with scents that I enjoy… Continue reading | 13 Comments

Memebox Scentbox Reviews

Memebox Logo

Memebox is a nifty little service that sends full-size Korean products to beauty addicts in the states and beyond (shipping to 51 countries). Original Memeboxes contain 4-8 full-size products. Superboxes contain 1 full-size with sample/travel sizes.

Being a beauty product fiend, I couldn’t settle for just one box. I ended up ordering three of the Scentboxes. Because this is EauMG and this is a dedicated “scent space”. I was curious to see what is happening scentwise in the world of Korean cosmetics. Plus, if I bought 3… Continue reading | 14 Comments
