Hit Pan: December 2012

To complete my series of Hit Pan posts, here's the last installment of my product empties for 2012. This would also be my last post for the year.

December Empties

Hair Care

I'm glad that there are lots of sulfate-free hair care products that keep popping up on store shelves lately. I've still got 3 bottles of different brands to try here at my stash, and it might take me some time before I get to repurchase this one. I love vanilla, but this vanilla smells more floral to me. Hence, I might get the Mandarin Fresh variant instead for Human Nature's hair care line. Mandarin Fresh smells like freshly squeezed oranges - which is my kind of fresh scent.

This is one of my favorite conditioners. Every time I use it, I feel like I am pouring banana shake to my hair. Haha! It leaves my hair smelling good and feeling soft. It's kinda pricey though, so I'll just repurchase this when it goes on sale.

Skin Care

3. Happy Teatime Green Tea Cleansing Foam
I'm now on my third tube of this same facial wash, and I swear this one cleared up my skin. I get to try different facial washes for review, but I always go back to this one. I'm surprised that something so cheap could be this good. I know this one's getting discontinued soon, and Etude House are just clearing up their inventory of the Happy Teatime range, so I am worried that I might not find a good replacement for it that my skin would also love.

4. Snoe Past Present & The Future Eye Serum
A P1,400.00 eye serum that is comparable to a $715.00 facial care product. Will post a review soon!

Body Care

5. The Face Shop Oriental Flower Body Cleanser
I love shower gels more than bar soaps. I'll post a review on this soon, too.

This is a multipurpose dry oil that can be used for the hair, face, and body. I absolutely adore the warm, chocolatey scent, and I think it's perfect for cold months.

This one didn't make it to the group shot above, but I finished it up just in the nick of time. This one is the second tub I have emptied. I use this as a regular body scrub, and I rinse it off even if Snoe says that there is no need to rinse this product off. It is effective for me, as it brightens up my skin. I particularly love using this to exfoliate my underarms.

If you're fond of those hand sanitizers that can be hanged onto bags, then you'll love what Zen Zest has in store for you. A cute bottle of this hand sanitizer plus strap costs just P50.00! I love how this makes my hands all clean and smelling fresh in an instant.


This one has a super minty feel plus SPF 15. Now the only thing it lacks is color, otherwise it would be super perfect for me.

Finally, it took me almost 2 years to finish this tube of concealer!

This is supposed to be a year-ender post, but I am never good with dramatic stuff. All I know is that blogging has been such a blessing for me. I never knew that writing and sharing my thoughts online would lead me to get to know great people like you - my blogger friends and lovely readers. Blogging has also opened up a lot of opportunities for me, so I am thanking the brands that put their trust to Lucky Citrine. If 2012 was good, I bet 2013 would be even more awesome! :)



  1. I want to try the snoe whitening s-crub too!! Nice to see that you have quite a number of products that had hit the pan.. ^_~

    1. Do try Snoe products, they're really great! :)

    1. Just like you! I realize we used up a lot this year. :D

  3. I returned my tube of HN Vanilla conditioner because it's not the gourmand vanilla I expected it to be :p

    I'd like to try that Chocomania oil, but the price is too steep for me right now. Someday, maybe.

    1. Human Nature has awesome customer service like that. Even if you have used a certain product, but weren't 100% satisfied with it, you could always return it.

      The Chocomania range goes on sale often. You could start with their shower gel or gift sets (minis) that's more affordable. :)

  4. wow, is the maybelline angel fit good? :)

    1. It's an okay concealer, not really a must-have. I won't be repurchasing this one. :)
