I have been so absent from here lately, sorry about that. I am waiting on an eye surgery and am having some difficulty seeing! I need new glasses but can’t get them until after the surgery. So if my pictures are a little off, please excuse them! Hopefully I will get back to normal soon. I have really been missing writing on here though, so I thought I would just come on here and try to get caught up.
I am fairly slow to getting pictures taken, editing is hard when you can’t see the best! I did end up using up quite a few products in the past 3 months, which is nice to see.
Some repeat products as well as the usual suspects!
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo and Conditioner - I took this sample shampoo and conditioner when I went to visit my nephew, which is when I tend to use samples the most! I like this shampoo and conditioner quite a bit but I will say that I have a problem paying that much for a shampoo and conditioner! Purchase? Not ready to pay that much quite yet.
Sephora Coconut Water Cleansing Cream - I picked this up fro the sale section, forever ago! I am finally getting around to using up what I have have amassed in my drawers. I can see why this cleanser was in the sale section and is no longer available. I didn’t find it did the greatest job of cleansing my face nor did it smell great. Repurchase? Not even if I could.
Fluffs Cotton Pads - Something that is almost always in a trash post. Great price, and they work. Repurchase? Always.
Live Clean Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo - I have been on the hunt to find a replacement for the Pantene Clarifying Shampoo that I can’t seem to find anymore. I picked this one up and it works ok, its not as ‘stripping’ as the Pantene one but does do an ok job. I tend to use these types of shampoos once a week to help remove buildup from the week. Repurchase? Maybe? I am still looking for one that seems to remove more.
B&BW Aromatherapy Happiness Foaming Hand Soap - We really liked the scent on this Hand Soap! The B&BW are our hand soaps of choice, I only pick them up when there is a sale at B&BW and I than usual stock up and have enough until the next sale. Repurchase? I would pick up this scent again.
Kirkland Signature Daily Facial Towelettes - Another repeat, one that I see myself repurchasing for the foreseeable future! Repurchase? Always
Thayers Witch Hazel Rose Petal - Another repeat product. I use this as my toner both morning and night, it gets the last little bit of makeup off of my face without drying it out. Repurchase? For the foreseeable future.
Foreo Luna Play - I got this in a Sephora Favorites set forever ago, and promptly forgot about it! I found it and started using it to see if I liked it more than the Clarisonic. I liked it ok, it was great for travel! I don’t know what it was but I didnt end up liking it as much as the Clarisonic. My face didnt feel as clean as when I use the Clarisonic. I think ill stick to it. Purchase? Unsure at the moment.
IGK Car Service Blow Out Balm - Yay! Another sample bites the dust! I was not the biggest fan of this balm at all. Whenever I used this my hair felt like it had a coating on it and seemed to get dirt faster than usual. Purchase? Nope
Purity Philosophy 3-in-1 Cleanser - My cleanser of choice to use with Clarisonic. This was a sample size that I take when I go to visit my nephew. Repurchase? Always, during the Black Friday/Boxing Day sales.
Schick Intuition Razor Refill x2 - What can I say, I am a person of habit in some respects. Great razor, especially if you are showering at 4 am! Repurchase? Another Costco purchase?
A-Derma Soothing Foaming Gel - I think I got this deluxe sample from a SDM Beauty Boutique order? I was not a fan of it at all. My face felt tight and dry after using it and I had to put on a heavy moisturizer on right after using it. It also has a very soapy scent to it, kind of like kids bubbles. Purchase? Nope
Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Eye Cream - I found that this was a great night eye cream for me, it was a little to heavy for daytime under makeup, but it felt great at night. It had a great amount of moisture for nighttime use. I did look it up on Sephora, and unfortunately the full size comes a pot. Purchase? Highly doubt it due to the pot situation.
La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum - I believe I got this serum fro Glamsense? I think? it was one of those anyway. I actually really liked it. It wasn’t very heavy feeling at all, and my makeup went on well overtop of it. I didn’t notice a big difference in any of my wrinkles, but like I said I did like it! Purchase? Maybe, there are still quite a few serums in the backup drawer.
Clarisonic Radiance Brush Head - I forget when I last changed the head on my Clarisonic, it was long overdue! I love the Radiance brush head, it gets my face clean without irritating it. Repurchase? As long as I have a Clarisonic.
I didn’t use up a lot of makeup, that stuff takes forever to use up! I did use up another sample of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation though. When I open one of these foil packets of product I squeeze all the product into a small sample jar, like the ones that you get samples of foundation of from Sephora. I have been able to get 3-4 days out of these samples doing this. I like this foundation, just not sure if I like it enough to purchase a bottle though.
Now the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer I do like! It isn’t a full coverage concealer for my underlies, but it is great when you are looking for a lighter coverage. I do have to set it with some powder, otherwise it will crease under my eyes but I usually do that anyway. I found myself reaching for this concealer quite a lot over the summer, I have been trying to use the It Cosmetics CC Cream as well as Urban Decay One and Done and this concealer looked great with them. Repurchase? I already did when it was a Sephhora Weekly Wow! I would have picked it up at full price to!
I am trying to get through the candles that I seem to have accumulated, there are quite a few around! I really liked the White Barn Copper Coconut from B&BW and will definitely keep my eyes open for it again next year, I think I picked it up during the warmer months. It was a nice warm coconut scent that seemed to fill the room. The Focus candle is another one from B&BW and I really liked it as well! It was more of a fresher scent? My husband isn’t the biggest fan of it, he doesn’t like the tea scent. For votives I used up 2 Coconut Beach, which I like as well as a Guava Coconut Fusion. I seemed to have been on a coconut scent kick over those 2 months! There are worse things, at least for me, that my house could have smelled like.
Next up I think will be getting caught up on Boxycharm and I am unsure if I will do separate posts for them as well as New In for the past 3 months. I have really started to slow down on what I have picking up due to the fact that I have not been very adventurous with the makeup I am wearing. I have found myself sticking to what I know and not really going outside of my comfort box.
