Yay, getting my empties up during the first week of the month! I am re-organizing my space and have come across a few things that aren’t empty but they have started to smell a little funky so its time to get rid of those things. If you are interested in what I used up for the month of March, keep reading.
A fair amount of empties, only 3 of the products are tosses for me, sadly all are makeup related. I think I should really go through my collection and see what else is smelling funky, or the colour is off.
I ended up using up quite a few hair, skin, etc products during March. Only 1 of these products is a toss for me.
Living Proof flex shaping hairspray - I can’t remember where I picked up this travel size of a hairspray, I am thinking it must have been in a value set. They spray on this hairspray is really nice, more of a fine mist, that sprayed nice and evenly. It never left my hair feeling crunchy or hard. I was surprised by this hairspray, I hadn’t been using hairspray for quite awhile, now I have started using it again. Repurchase? Maybe, I liked it but I am sure there are good ones at the drugstore.
Thayers Witch Hazel in Rose - I have been using this toner for quite awhile now, have repurchased it quite a few times now. I do really like it, it doesn’t dry out my face but does get off the last little bits of makeup that may have been left behind. I have read, courteous of Makeup Your Mind (who is also running a giveaway to win this toner plus a lot of other Thayers products), that Thayers is going to be available at Loblaws/Walmart/etc! This makes me happy as my Health Food Store doesn’t always have them in stock. Repurchase? Probably, I do want to try an Apple Cider Vinegar toner I have seen first though.
live clean Argan Oil leave-in conditioner spray - I won this leave in conditioner from a giveaway, along with quite a few other live clean products, and am happy I did. I haven’t tried out a lot from live clean but the few products I have tried, I have liked. This is a nice light leave-in conditioner that didn’t weigh my hair down at all, just made it so much easier to comb through after washing. Repurchase? I might, I do have a few other leave-in conditioners to get through before I pick up another one.
BBW Fresh Sparkling Snow Foaming Hand Soap - You have probably seen these hand soaps in other Trash posts in one scent or other. We like the Fresh Sparkling Snow scent, its nice and light and not girly at all, which makes my husband and son happy! Repurchase? I think I may be getting over BBW soaps, they aren’t antibacterial anymore and that was one of the main reasons I bought them. I think once we are done with the ones we have now I may start trying other brands.
Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo Light Tones - This is the last dry shampoo that I got when I did the Elle Canada Beauty Grand Prix back in 2016. This was one of my favourites out of the bunch, and after having used up the bottle I still liked it. The white cast was so easy to brush out, and the scent was almost non-existent. Repurchase? I might, again once I get through the other dry shampoos I have.
Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes - If you have been around here for any amount of time you have seen these makeup wipes a lot. They are in almost every Trash post I do. Repurchase? More than likely.
Schick Intuition Sensitive Care razor refill - And yet another product that is usually in every Trash post. Repurchase? Always
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - I was happy to try out this deluxe sample of the lip balm that everyone and their mother loves! I have to admit that they weren’t wrong! I loved using this at night before bed, I would wake up with my lips still feeling moisturized and ready for the day. If you see the deluxe sample size as a point perk at all, it is well worth the points! I missed out on getting the set for the past holiday season and will be watching for it this year. Repurchase? Probably, as soon as I get through the bite one I am working on now.
Bite Agave Sugar Lip Scrub - This lip scrub is sadly a toss without ever having tried it. I found this stuck in a drawer and when I did the sniff test, it smells little funky. I am pretty sure I got this in a holiday kit at some point. I had great plans to try it out but sadly forgot about it. Repurchase? If it comes in another set I would happily give it a try.
Sephora Solid Brush Cleanser - I picked up this brush cleanser to get me to a spend for a beauty offer… But I have to say I am so happy I did! This stuff works great for getting most of the makeup off of my brushes and sponge. It does take a few times to get foundation off of a kabuki brush though. I haven’t tried the beauty blender solid cleanser to know how it compares, but I did find a deluxe sample of it so will be trying that one out next. I’ll be sure to let you know how it compares to this cheaper option. Repurhase? I already have one waiting to use so I won’t be needing to pick up a new one for awhile.
Calgon Ageless Bath Exfoliating Mineral Scrub - Not going to say a lot about this body scrub, if you want to see my thoughts on it you can check out my review here. Repurchase? I already have.
More than usual for Makeup trash. As you can see by the picture 2 of these products are tosses, sadly they went off before I could use them up.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation in Light Neutral - Another product that I have written a review on! If you want to read my thoughts on this now discontinued 😭, you can find that one here. Repurchase? If I could I would.
Mac Pro Longer Paint Pot in Painterly- These paint pots last forever! I use this everyday and it still took me over a year to go through it. I have oily lids and need to use 2 eye primers to get anything to last on my lids. I use this overtop of a traditional eye primer and is great for canceling out the discolouration on my lids. Since opening my new one though, I realize that this one had started to dry out. Repurchase? I already did.
The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer - Sadly this is a toss for me. I really like this primer, when its new it is a clear liquid. It does a great job at helping my foundation stay put, especially in the warmer months. It doesn’t however help with oiliness. The price of this primer is really nice as well, $7.90 CAD. I wish Sephora carried this primer as it would be easier to get free shipping. Repurchase? Maybe I do have a lot of primers to try out before I rebuy anything.
Quo Mini Sponge - I picked up a set of 6 of these sponges a few years ago, I think. I haven’t seen them in my local Shoppers in a while so I am wondering if they were discontinued as well? I found these to be as good as the mini beauty blender sponges but they were a lot cheaper than those, I want to say they were under $10 when I picked them up? This sponge doesn’t seem to be as ‘bouncy’ as it once was and doesn’t puff back to its original egg shape when I wet it, hence why I am tossing it. Repurchase? I have a few more left and would buy them again if I could.
Mac Viva Glam V - My third toss, well actually Back to Mac it. This lipstick is OLD! It was one of the first products I bought from Mac for my sisters wedding back in 2013. When I opened the tube I got a whiff of the old crayon smell telling me that this one is past its time. It is a nice neutral shade but it has a bit to much glitter in it for my liking now. Repurchase? Not this shade, but I do love Mac lipsticks!
I only ended up burning 1 votive last month…But I do like this scent! The Yankee Candle Juicy Citrus & Sea Salt candle is a nice lightly scented one. It isn’t the strongest smelling candle ever, but it is enough to fill a room. The citrus scent is on the lighter side, so if you are looking for a very citrus-y scent this isn’t the one for you. I found it was enough to start getting me in the mood for more fresher scents, hopefully the weather will start to co-operate so that these types of scents are more in line with whats going on outside.
So that was my Trip Through My Trash for March, a few new products with only a couple regular ones! I have a few more powder foundations to try out, ill get reviews on them up soon (hopefully they aren’t discontinued as well 😞). Did you use up anything that has been discontinued lately? Were you able to find a replacement?
