2012 Finished Products Month 1!! Who missed these??
Hmm not as big of a pile this month, but don't worry the February bag has already started :)
Bath and Body Works Shower Gel in Cotton Blossom: Purchased this scent on a recommendation from a friend. This is where scents really depends on the person...she loves this. Every time I used it I thought it smelled like I was in a Washing Machine...smelled like a Laundry Mat to me, so no repurchasing in the future...
Fresh Citron de Vigne Body Lotion: Part of a gift set. This is nice, smelled great, but too expensive in the full size to re purchase
Neutrogena Body Wash: Love this still in 2012! I am currently using a different wash for after the gym and it's no where NEAR as good as this! will be coming back to this soon!!
Kevin Beauty Maker Moisturizing Foam Cleanser: Smells nice, all his products smell nice. Foams nicely but it in all honesty, this was absolutely nothing special. I never used it on it's own I used it after using a make up remover to remove all residue. Would not repurchase especially since you have to order this online to obtain. Not worth it.
Avene Thermal Water: Ahh this ran out SO FAST! It's just mineral water in a spray can but I think it actually did something! Once I stopped using it and went on to my next toner, my skin was not as bright and broke out a bit. Maybe I need more simplicity and French mineral water sprays in my life... I would repurchase but it runs out so fast...
Origins Ginzing: You can read a more thorough review here. But in short, will not be repurchasing. Quite a bit of hype for reasons I don't really get, it does not surpass OK status for me
Boscia Amino Eye Cream: Wow...not impressed. Does not do anything. Feels very similar to Vaseline for the eyes. Did not notice any improvement in any fine lines, moisturization, hydration, ANYTHING REALLY. Glad this was a sample.
So... I am currently OUT of wrinkle eye cream and on the search for a new one. Recommendations?
Laura Mercier Mineral Primer: These samples last FOREVER. 1 Fl oz! I have tried a few of Laura Mercier primers and have found each of them to be great. This particular one is designed for mineral foundation. I wore this both under mineral and liquid foundation and saw no difference in performance. I did not see anything to make it distinguishable for mineral make up. If they ever ran out of the oil free primer, I would just buy this without any thought. To me, they are quite comparable. I believe Laura Mercier makes excellent primers as they are not silicone based which I hate, but water/gel and based.
Make Up Forever Smokey Lash: Wow, great, beautiful, amazing, insert more positive adjectives here. Really delivers beautiful thick black lashes that holds a curl. Too bad this tube dried out in a month. Loved it but wow the price for 4 weeks?? And I don't even wear mascara daily, so this would not be a repurchase for me, but if you ever feel like a lil bit of spoiling, this mascara is QUITE nice.
Dior Show Mascara: Honestly I don't recall this being very special at all. I threw this in the finished bag because it's sooo old. I don't remember enjoying this because the brush was ridiculously big, and I would not repurchase.
Barry M Lipgloss in 02 Toffee: Quite possibly my favorite drugstore lip gloss ever, and probably in my top 2 lip glosses period. Loved the smell, the color, the subtle shimmer, the price. I rely on ASOS for back ups of this baby! I have a back up and will repurchase!!
Fresh Citron de Vigne: The main piece of the Fresh set I purchased a few months ago. I loved the scent of this. I thought it was so fresh and lady like at the same time. The downer, it lasts about 35 seconds on the skin then *POOF* gone! Where did it go??? I am no where near ready to leave the house...Loved this but would not buy it again due to incredibly poor lasting power.
