Inspired by the lovely Luluchinadoll I have decided to follow one of her ideas and start blogging my finished products of the month.
Not only will this let me review items that I have completely finished, but I want to run some kind of tally to realize how many beauty items I actually use up in one year.
Here is to installment one!
Pacifica Brazilian Mango Grapefruit Body Butter
I love the Pacifica brand. My favorite scent is the Tuscan Blood Orange. This scent is not as good to me, but all of their body butters are great quality, not too sticky or thick. They have a variety of scents at Sephora and I am planning on Indian Coconut Nectar next!
The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter ( Travel Size)
I have gone through tubs of this stuff. I have tried a bunch of different scents from the Body Shop but like the Coconut the most ( I love coconut if you have yet to see ^^)
This is a bit thick and can take a while to absorb into the skin. ( I slather it on! I hate dry skin)
These are ok, nice containers and reasonably priced, but there are better out there.
I will always repurchase this, just not consistently
Kiehls Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask
This took forever to finish! It a grey colored mask ( not a fan of the color) I applied it about 2x a week. When you applied to freshly cleansed skin, the mask on my face starts to feel *hot* I was worried in the beginning but when I rinsed, my face was never red, but always super bright! I was addicted to the results. I don't think this really helped deep clean my pores but it was not bad. You get a lot of product for the money, and I may repurchase this but did not see any special results at all.
Lash Blast Fusion & Lancome Hypnose
Lancome Hypnose is by far my favorite mascara. Enough volume and length, and fans my lashes!! The formula is a bit wet but does not weigh down my curl. This would be my constant mascara if not for the price.
If I feel like spoiling myself, this is definitely something I would look to. Definite repurchase.
Lash Blast Fusion
I liked this far more than the original lash blast for some reason. It's ok, not bad, nothing special, I would repurchase this if my drugstore was running some kind of sale.
Adequate volume/length but again, nothing special
Neutrogena Body Clear Body Scrub
Because I go to the gym, I am very afraid of getting body acne. I purchased this as a preventative measure. This foams great!!! it has mini scrub particles that are not harsh at all. I would definitely buy this again. Probably in the summer. This was a happy surprise to be honest
Paul and Joe Foundation Shade 02
My first Paul and Joe make up item. The foundation is a very thin, watery texture, not too much coverage, but has a nice glow effect. If you mainly have uneven pigmentation but no active spots, this may be very nice on you. Feels light, had a slight scent, I never received any bad skin reactions. I really like this for spring and summer due to how light and thin it is.
Clinique Liquid Facial Soap for Oily Skin
Bought this when I was going through my "Clinique" phase.
This is OK, lasts a long time, if you have oily skin and use this, your oils will not greatly reduce, it does seem to help mattify but the results are not easily seen.
Also when you use this product and you have acne prone skin it can take about 3-4 months before your skin adjusts to a non blemish fighting cleanser and it would take about that much time for this soap to get deep into your pores/face to really start cleaning and preventing future breakouts.
Not sure if I would repurchase this...Price is not bad at all, considering how long it took me to finish
I used this at night with my clarisonic to remove my make up ( did a pretty good job)
Ferregamo Dreams Perfume
My favorite perfume for spring and summer. I am really sad I finished this. Like I had mentioned before, this smells like Hawaii! Orchids, pineapple, flowers,citrus. Ahhh Love it!
Got to get this again this summer!
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser
I bought this so long ago! I had the theory if I was super gentle to my skin, my face would calm down and my spots would leave. NOT WITH THIS STUFF! this stuff made my face have a pimple party!
I wanted to finish the bottle so I used this every morning before my facial scrub to just remove the night's accumulated oils.
A gel cleanser, when applied to the face, it never feels like it cleans deeply, only topically.
Unsure how I feel about this, but if you want a simple cleanser, no fuss, no muss, this is it. Easily accessible and price is fair.
I think this could be a great item depending on your individual skin needs. I will admit the more I used it, the more I enjoyed it.
Boscia Lavender Blotting Linens
Boscia makes the best oil blotting sheets hands down. I love the green tea scent more than Lavender. Def repurchase
Boots Soothing Eye Make up Remover
This must be my 4th bottle of this stuff. Cheap ( found at Target) and works! I never buy high end brand eye make up removers because this baby does it all in 1 sweep
The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist
So far my favorite face mist. I prefer this over fix + because it seems to have a finer spray nozzle, smells like roses, and the size is more convenient to carry around in your purse. Love to use this to set my make up, refresh after the gym, and just hydrate mid day at work due to the dry air
Vitamin E Eye Cream
The Body Shop was having a sale so I stocked up on the Vitamin E line ^^ my favorite line in the store. This took months to finish, about 5 months? This did not do anything....I do not recommend this item.
Maybe if this is your first eye cream....but I was dissapointed with such lack of effects and I am so glad I am finished with this to be honest
Will not repurchase
That's my list! I hope these super mini reviews helped and I hope to continue these monthly tally's!!!
