In this post, I'll share with you the products that I've finished lately. I'm making a conscious effort to use up products before I replace them. I'll also try to eliminate some things that are not finished yet, but are not being used.
The first thing is a Tarte Lipsurgence lip stain that started to turn white. I figured that meant it was not healthy, so I tossed it. I love Lipsurgence products though. I have a bunch of them. I was really disappointed with the Ciate nail polish mini in Talent Scout. It chipped really badly the next day on multiple nails. No need for this to be taking up space in my nail polish storage, so goodbye. A Lush bath bomb was in this paper bag. It was from last Christmas (yes I hoard them) and it was Cinders, which was cinnamon-scented and lovely. The mini mascara was from my Sephora Lash Stash. The label wore off but it was Marc Jacobs and I liked it, but it wasn't anything amazing. I'm not loyal to any particular shave gel. This Gilette Venus Olay brand was fine!
Next up are the hair products. The Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Conditioner was given to me and I did really enjoy it. I'm all over the place with shampoo/conditioner. I get bored easily and always want to try new stuff so I don't repurchase that often. In saying that, the Redken Cleansing Cream I have bought multiple times. I can't stretch my hair to four days between washings anymore, but when I could, I used this every second wash to get rid of product build-up. As far as dry shampoo goes, I've yet to find my holy grail, but this Tigi Pro stuff I got from Winners was awful. I only used it a few times and it made my hair feel dirtier so I chucked it. I used to like the One N Only Argan oil, but then I went back to using Moroccan Oil and I like it better.
I buy sheet masks at Winners, and I've used at least four of them lately, but this one from The Creme Shop was my favorite. I try to use one every week and a half or so. I went back to using Olay Total Effects for my night cream a few months ago. Shoppers keeps sending my Optimum Bonus Points for it, so it works out well. The Body Shop Chamomile eye makeup remover is my second favorite, after Bioderma Micellar water. I won the Kibio cleansing milk at a SDM event a long time ago. It was ok as a morning cleanser, but didn't remove makeup very well. The Quo cotton pads are a staple in my life. I buy them in three packs.
Last are my Bath and Body Works empties. I feel like the soaps and anti-bacs are guaranteed to be great. If you like the smell in the store, you're going to like them at home. The candles are a different story because they always smell strong in the store, but might not give off much scent when they are lit. Beach Cabana is one of my summer favourites. It is so strongly scented (jasmine, white towels and orange blossom) and the scent throws all over the house. The only thing that bugged me about it is that the wax turned a weird brown color when it got close to the end.
I hope you enjoyed peeking in my recycling!
