Finished Products of March



Time of the month where I show you all my empty bottles!


Khiels Calendula Herbal Extract Toner
I prefer Alcohol free toners, and this is my first toner from Khiels. This ladies is a $35 dollar bottle of TEA. If I unscrewed the top, and stuck in a straw I could probably drink it and have no side effects what so ever. This is a very weak toner, smells like honey water tea. It does not do much to the skin outside making it feel refreshed. There are Calendula petals in this toner - most likely for aesthetics. After you finish half the bottle, the petals start showing up on your facial cotton, and you have to pick them off your face. ( I am not a garden) I did like this toner towards the end of the bottle, but this is just far too expensive for what it really does.
Grab a box of Lipton for a DIY similar effect.


Neutrogena Acne Scub and Wash
I used the scrub in the AM and the gel in the PM with my Clarasonic. In short, I used to hate Neutrogena because it was formerly too harsh for my skin, but now that my skin has become more sturdy, I actually have come to really like the brand and have since purchased a few more items from them to try.
I have already re purchased these for a later time, stock this up in my drawers.
( Anyone else do that?)
Really think these are good to give a go.
Great smell too - Wait for BOGO deals


Ponds Make Up Wipes
Still trying a few other brands of make up wipes, Garnier is still my number 1, but these are not bad. I wouldn't mind buying these if Garnier was out of stock but the sheets are huuuge, so you don't get nearly as many in 1 pack


Bath and Body Lotion/Hand Sanitizer
Nothing special, just wanted to finish these


Anna Sui Perfume + VS Perfume
These posts have really pushed me to finish my perfumes! I never finished a perfume before 2011 now I have finished 4? *patting myself on the back*
Anna Sui is citrus-ey and very refreshing for a girl scents
The VS perfume was only for work, non distinct,  or overly sweet, just safe - perfect non offensive perfume for work


Clinique Dramatically Diff Moisturizing Lotion
Just a sample, I was using this on my neck, too greasy for my face, but I love how many free bees Clinique gives


Dior Snow Sunscreen
Probably my favorite sunscreen ever. This is my 3rd? or 4th finished tube. It's small and pricey but I assure you, I use this everyday of the year, and it takes a full year to finish a tube. You just need a pea sized amount. Also, this leaves your skin mattified with some radiance points on your cheekbones, so you wont be left with a greasy film like other sunscreens with high SPF can do. I have already repurchased, and am using this. Cant be without it.



Mascara
Revlon Grow Luscious: Not a fan, more details in my mascara review
Maybelline Full and Soft: I don't know why, but I really like how natural this leaves my lashes look, well post eyelash primer that is =P Also found in the above attached review
Shiseido Mascara Base: My favorite eyelash primer. I went to repurchase but they have changed the formulation. WHY?? the new formula stinks in my opinion compared to the original. It really does not do anything like what it used to. So I need a new lash primer, I hated Lancome's Cils Booster...
Can anyone recommend one you enjoy? I know Urban Decay has one...maybe I need to check that out?


Dove Body Wash
Getting desperate for finished products here! lol
This was okay...nothing special


Just wanted to share 1 last bit
This month's Sephora's 500 point perk is actually quite good!
The eyeshadow trip is full sized. Gel liner size is also decent but I have yet to use any of these items. So if you ladies are ready to cash in your points, this is what is being offered this month!

Thanks for reading!!!

  2. "$35 dollar bottle of TEA.." LOL. The Kiehl's part killed me xDD

    I didn't like the pink Neutrogena range too much. Didn't feel like it did anything.. but I love the Deep Clean range! I think it'd be pretty harsh (especially the scrub) by most peoples standards though.

  3. Sorry your favorite mascara base got changed. I hate when brands change the formula of products I love. Of all the face wipes Ponds is at the bottom for me. I like the Garnier ones too but I go through them to quickly. Have you tried the Costco Kirkland brands wipes? Seriously those are my absolute favorite.

    The Anna Sui Perfume bottle is so cute! I wouldn't want to finish it. =)

  4. So many finished products!
    LOL the toner description gave me a good laugh :P I faintly remember trying maybe one or two of neutrogena items when I was first interested in skincare but my aunt told me to use better stuff and gave me some of her products to use and haven't went back to try anything of theirs since. =X Maybe I should give that cleanser a try..
    I have too many of those B&BW lotions! It takes forever to use them and I've fallen off that wagon a while ago.
