It’s that time of the month, the time where I get to see if I used up anything good or new. Out of the 12 products I used up in February only 3 are repeats. I think thats a record for me. I am still not wearing much makeup unfortunately, nor am I doing much skincare. Hopefully soon!
I ended up using a very small amount of products in February, but I do remember them all!
Quite a few different from usual empties.
B&BW At The Beach 24 Hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream - I usually use some scent or other of the B&BW 24 Hour Cream in the cooler months. They work well and keep me from getting to dry during winter. The At The Beach scent wasn’t to overpowering and did tend to fade fairly quickly for me, which I like. I did pick up the body wash at the same time but had half the bottle left when I finished up the area, I think I need to pick up 2 bottles of lotion for each bottle of body wash! Repurchase? Yes
Fluffs Cotton Pads - My cotton pads of choice! Not quite as many as last month! Not much else I can say about these cotton pads, I like them. Repurchase? Yes.
Neat & Easy Deep Cleansing Pore Strips - I have been using the nose strips again as I have found that since I am still not following a regular skincare routine yet, still having a few issues with my eyes. I have been having a few clogged pores on my nose and these have been doing the trick and removing the gunk with out any fear of anything getting in my eyes. They work just as well as the other nose strips, I was just trying to get away from using them. Repurchase? Possibly.
Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner - Not sure where I came up with these 2 samples. They were ok, nothing fantastic. I didnt find that they were the most moisturizing I have used, but they did the job. The conditioner was just average, nothing to write home about. The shampoo did lather well and did just an ok job of cleansing my hair. Purchase? Doubt it.
Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel - I got this cleanser in a set awhile ago in a small set during either a Black Friday or Boxing Day sale along with the Beauty Oil and Konjac sponge. I finally got around to trying out the products from that set. I liked this cleanser, it didn’t really have a scent to it which was kind of nice, nor did it feel drying on my face. The only issue I had with it was the packaging, I ended up having to unscrew the pump to get the bottom 1/2 inch of cleanser out. The tube didn’t reach all the way to the bottom. Repurchase? Maybe? It didn’t wow me and it does cost more than the Purity that I usually use.
Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil - I liked this oil and was using it day and night without any issues. My face never looked oily nor dry while I was using it either. Again my issue was the packaging, as you can see from the picture there is still quite a bit of oil left in the bottle that I can’t get out. The dropper will not come off of the bottle, it is somehow stuck on there and I can’t twist it open. Repurchase? I doubt it, I liked it but having had issues with both this and the cleanser doesn’t make me want to try it again.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream - I got this cream in a recent Boxy Charm and thought I would try it out to see if using it for a longer amount of time would let me see what the hype is about it. It is a fairly moisturizing cream that the moisture lasted long on my skin. Unfortunately the scent also really lasts on the skin, it overpowers pretty much any else that I put on after using it. I could still smell the cream the next morning after using it. The scent is to strong for me, or my workplace. Repurchase? Nope.
Bite Agave Lip Balm - I was really looking forward to using the Bite Agave Lip Balm as I have used the lip mask and really liked it. It is a really thick lip balm though, almost as thick as the mask. It tugged whenever I applied it to my lips which wasn’t the greatest feeling. I didn’t find it to be as moisturizing as I thought it would be either. Repurchase? Doubt it.
Boscia Konjac Cleansning Sponge - I have never used a Konjac sponge before so was looking forward to trying this one out. I don’t get the hype of them though? Maybe because mine was only a small one? I didn’t notice that it had done a better job than my Clarisonic or even just using my hands. Repurchase? Doubt it
I didnt end up burning much for candles last month, which is unlike me! 1 I liked, 1 not so much. I am trying to get through my stash of ever growing products including candles before I go out picking up more. I am running out of room to store stuff and don’t want to get anything else to store more stuff. I liked the Golden Sands scent quite a bit, it has sandalwood and orange which together is great. It isn’t the strongest scent but does fill the room that I burned it in. The Honeydew Melon one was not my favourite at all, it didn’t smell like any honeydew melon i’ve smelled before. It smelled somewhat musty, not a great scent for me at all.
So a smaller than usual Trip Through My Trash for February 2019, but a few newer products in the mix this time. I am planning on continuing to use up products that I have sitting in drawers/boxes/etc, I have more stuff than I should sitting in drawers! This should mean that I will be getting back to doing some reviews soon! Here’s hoping anyway.
