Could I have procrastinated more on this post? No, don't think so
Bath and Body Works Shower Gel: 1 more bottle guys 1 more bottle and I'm finally FINALLY done with my bath and body works stash! It feels good to be so close. As I said countless times, these are ok but expensive at full price, just wait for the sale
Bioderma: I pretty much wanted to shed a tear when this went dry :*( You can read my full review here. I will be repurchasing this once I get through my Shu Uemura Oil.
Bioderma, pretty much the BEST MAKE UP REMOVER I ever tried
Rose Petal Toner: How many bottles have I gone through of these? and another one is coming! Cheap, gentle, cleanses my face and natural. I really don't need much more from a toner than those things
I Love Strawberry Milkshakes: This brand should make Philosophy worried in the " I can make soaps smell like grandma's house too" category but in terms of quality EHHHHHHHHHH I hated this...I would rub it all over my skin and all I saw was white streaks that took eons to soak in
Would not recommend, but again, smells AMAZING
Neutrogena Acne Wash (Green): I think this is the most gentle version from the whole Neutrogena Acne Line. I think the original orange shade is just straight up acne fighting, the grapefruit is more citrus and this one was more reminiscent to green tea?
If you want to try the Neutrogena Acne line but have heard horrors on how harsh the line is, the green version is the most mild formula ( It was ok..)
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser: I made a mistake and purchased this thinking it was paraben free. Am I the only person who assumed Fresh would be paraben free?
Anyway, this is ok but definitely not worth the $40 dollars in my opinion. It lathers with semi lackluster effect and does not feel deep cleaning at all
( most gentle brands just feel clean on the surface)
I would not purchase this again, as the Avene gentle cleanser I used previously felt just as nice if not better at half the price and is paraben free
This claims a cucumber smell, I did not love the smell this had.
Dior Snow Sunscreen: One of my favorite sunscreens! I used this exclusively for years, but this formula seems different? They changed the packaging and it seems slightly thicker and does not seem to mix in with my moisturizer well when combined at all. It would leave patchy streaks all over the place if I tried to mix the two products together. I don't recall the sunscreen doing that previously...I may purchase this again to experiment, but on top of moisturizer this is lovely, and I still stand by this sun screens as one of my all time favorites.
Epiduo Cream: The last of the Rx prescribed topical treatment for acne. Eeek!
Khiels Daily Skin Clearing Treatment: Read my full review here
Laura Mercier Hand Cream: I kept this by my nightstand. Rubbed this all over my hands before bed and slept better from the beautiful scents she has in these. Quite moisturizing without a greasy feel also
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion: I have tried numerous items from this brand but this is the only thing I ever repurchase. This helps destroy whiteheads like no other!
Clinique Acne Solutions: I think this was my 3rd bottle? This is great for items that you can feel will pop up soon under the skin. Nips them in the bud, but you have to catch them early enough for this to work
Twighlight Woods Body Butters: I love to use the BB&W body butters as hand creams in the winter the mini sizes are great for this, and is so hydrating in the office
Estee Lauder Hydrationist (Normal to Combo Skin): I think the dry skin version is the best formula from this line. It's called hydrationist but it's not THAT hydrating, the combination skin one is ok, but in the winter this does not cut it for me. It's soso in spring, better in summer for me
Olay Night Recovery Cream: The first Olay product I have tried that was quite meh...I know Olay is famous for it's anti aging products and while this is very hydrating and smooth, I did not see any signs of a "mini face lift" each morning. Of course we all take this with a grain of salt, but I think Olay may have better in their line than this
Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle: A hair product???? Have you noticed a LACK of hair products in these posts? Anyway this is quite NICE the price is AMAZING ( under 4 dollars usually) the smell is like pineapples and coconut, and it does really give you some serious smoothness and shine after letting it in the bottom portion of you hair for 3 minutes. I tend to apply this to the bottom portion of my hair and wrap it in a bun for 3 minutes, release, rinse, and feel the smoothness.
Great Aussie product
Sonia Kashuk Eye Make up remover: My favorite eye make up remover on the budget side. Big bottle, found in Target, and gets the job done without much pulling of the eyes.
Finally on to the good stuff!
Boscia Blotting Sheets: HG! Need I say more?
Moroccan Oil: A must for my hair, I finally purchased the BIG bottle. Review can be found here
Hand Sanitizer: A must in general
Palmers Mint and Dark Chocolate Lip Balm: Vaseline, too thin, smells heavenly, but would not repurchase. Again, just feels like Vaseline
Lorac Moonstone: OMG FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My favorite all over lid color for about two years is finally gone. I feel so happy I can change to something else. Granted another neutral but a change. I also have a single of this shade, because I may be tired of it now, but I will always come back to it!!!
K Palette Liner: Felt tip liner which I would not repurchase as the point is fine, and the item did last long on my eyes and in the packaging, but the color is more of a dark charcoal than black to me
Clinique Lash Power Mascara: A swap with my mother got me this baby. I was not a fan. ZERO volume, no clumping (this will probably NEVER clump on you) very lengthening and defining, but I hated removing these fiber mascaras with warm water. A little too many steps for me, so not a repurchase.
MAC's Well Dressed: My FIRST completed Mac Blush ahhh this was extremely satisfying to finish ( as sad as that sounds!!)
A baby pink that I may repurchase? This is more of a winter shade, but I am curious on how Benefit's Hervanna compares to this.
What have you all finished this month?
