Time for another Trip Through My Trash. It still surprises me how many products I end up using up in a month.
Trip Through My Trash
I used up quite a few products last month, and only 2 tosses! I am still trying to find time to go through my makeup as I keep finding products that have gone bad on me.
As per usual, the Hair/Skincare/Bodycare section has the most products in it! Only 1 toss in this bunch.
OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo- OMG. the scent on this is wonderful! It smells like a coconut cream pie. I don’t think I have ever tried a shampoo from this line before, but I did really enjoy using this one! The scent is great and the product does a good job as well. It cleaned my hair well and didnt leave it feeling weighed down at all. Repurchase? Quite possibly.
TRESemme Deep Cleanse Shampoo- I picked up this shampoo in the clearance section at Shopper’s hoping it would be a replacement for the Pantene weekly clarifying shampoo that I can’t find anywhere. Sadly it isn’t a replacement. I didn’t get that completely cleansed feeling on my hair after using this one at all, for me it was more like a regular shampoo, it may have gotten a bit more out but it isn’t my favourite Pantene. Repurchase? Nope
Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes- I have used up plenty of these face wipes and I do like them! I haven’t been using them much lately as I am working on going through some cleansing balms that I have as my first cleanse and than wiping that off with a baby wipe. But if you are in the market for a decent facial cleansing cloth I would definitely recommend picking these up at Costco. They work really well and are great price. Repurchase? Possibly once I finish up what I have.
Earth’s Nectar Honey Curls- I really liked using this curl definer, especially after I got my hair cut! It does a great job of defining my wavy hair without leaving it crunchy and hard. I did get this from a curly hair sampler from Ultra so I am not sure if I can easily get it here in Canada. Repurchase? Maybe, I am hoping to try out the DevaCurl I picked up soon.
Milk Shake Energizing Shampoo and Conditioner- OMG. Worst shampoo and conditioner ever. First off, there was nothing energizing about the scent, it was a kind of nothing scent wise. But where it really gets bad is later on in the day. My hair has never looked greasy and flat like it did with this stuff. I washed my hair in the morning and used my regular styling products and by the end of the day it looked like I hadn’t washed my hair in days. I had to wash my hair again the next day, which I never have to do. I can usually get at least 3 days before I have do something. Purchase? Never.
Briogeo Roscarco Shampoo and Conditioner- There was enough in the sample to wash my hair one day and use the conditioner for 2 days. They are both great, just not sure about the cost. I like to use a deep conditioner after doing my weekly deep cleanse on my hair and the conditioner in this sample works great. Purchase? Maybe
Erborian Creme Scrub- If you like to be able to feel the grit in a face scrub, this is a good one. It is not as abrasive, to me, as the Dr Brandt one, but you can still feel it in there. I didn’t have an issues while using it, my skin felt great each time, soft and clean. Unfortunately, I don’t think you can buy this scrub anymore. Purchase? I don’t think I can.
Flexitol Lip Balm- I have had this lip balm around for awhile, I found that I could only really use it at night or if I wan’t planning on putting anything more on my lips for the day. It does a great job of moisturizing your lips and sticks around for awhile as well. It would be great to put on before going ut in the winter to play in the snow! My only issue is that when I was about halfway through the tube the tube cracked right below the nozzle. Once that happened the product started coming out from there instead of the tip. Because of that issue it quickly became a nighttime balm, it was to messy to use otherwise. Repurchase? Maybe?
The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7%- I have used up this toner before and I do like it. I find that I can’t use it every night, my face tends to get really red if I do. But it does work really well when I use it every 3rd night. Repurchase? Already have!
Schick Intuition Razor refill- Not going to say much about these, they are in ever Trip Through My Trash! Repurchase? Always
Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil- Sadly this is not the oil for me. I was using this at night and each morning I would wake up with a new friend on my face. It seemed to take awhile to sink into the skin as well, not my favourite. Purchase? Nope.
Both of these products are tosses for me, both being old but I did get quite a bit of use out of them. I can’t even remember when I picked up the Mac Pro Longwear Foundation, it had to have been quite a while ago though. I went to use it last week and it completely settled into my pores and just looked horrible no matter what primer, or even no primer, I tried it with. The bottle is halfway empty though so I obviously liked it at one point, not anymore though. I will empty the bottle out though and save it for a Back To Mac. The Quo mini sponge has just gotten old and its time to replace it. Whenever I wash it it just ends up staying in a weird shape, not bouncing back to the regular egg shape. I do have a couple more of these left from a set I picked up last year? so I am good for awhile yet.
I used up the last of the Yankee Candle tea lights that I had, again they were ok but I couldn’t tell you what the scent of them were. The 3 votives I burned are all ones that I like, they all fill the room with scent. I am almost through my candles and am looking forward to picking up a few new scents, and maybe some new brands to try.
So thats what I used up in September, still very slowly going through what I have. The good thing about using up my stash, I have found some good things! Have you used up anything good lately? Anything really bad? Let me know.
