|It looks like there is still product in the gloss, but I swear, I could not fish any more out and I tried the hot water thing multiple times. The end.|
Clinique Moisturizing Gel
I've repurchased this countless times and have been using the whole system since late high school, but it's time for a change. I still like some of their products, but I think my skin type has changed and I need something a little more moisturizing now. Experimenting with some new products; will give a report later.
Fresh Sugar Mini Lip Balm
Love the original, hate the mini because the packaging does not work when shrunk down to this itsy bitsy size. I have a couple more (free Sephora gift) so I'll use 'em.
Dior Orange Pareo lip gloss
It happened! I finished an actual colored lip product! Of course it would be an LE one. I think this sheer orange jelly sort of color is really flattering, glitter or no. I also find the Dior glosses to be really moisturizing (at least, this one was), so I will definitely buy another in the future. Not right now, but eventually.
Benefit Magic Ink Liner
I like this one (this is my second), but it's not waterproof and in the summer when it gets hot, the liquid starts too ooze out of the well and makes a mess. I think I'm going to try some other types of liquid liners; I use black liquid liner every day, so I need a good one that doesn't smudge and stays put.
Cake It's a Slice Hand Cream
I like the original scent much better. Still like the texture of this one, though. Using up a mini L'Occitane cream right now (that I don't like), but will have to find something new after that. Preferably a cheaper alternative.
Haus of Gloi Parkin mini Pumpkin Butter
This may be my favorite indie body lotion - it's so luxurious! Feels wonderful. Parkin is a bit too foodie for me (though I didn't mind it in the winter - pumpkin muffins, mmm!) so I wouldn't get this scent again, but I definitely need more pumpkin butters!
Haus of Gloi Snow Wolf Whipped Soap
I like the texture of the whipped soap, but this scent didn't speak to me, either. Because of this, I confess that I used generous amounts of it for extra sudsies, which help chase away winter gloom.
Alchemic Muse Honey Basalm soap sample
Received a sliver sample when I made an order long ago, and just finally got around to using it because soap bars are not my thing (they get slimy. Ew). I like the herbal, spa-like scent but don't like the feeling the soap leaves on my skin - tight and squeaky.
Bath and Body Works French Baguette, Apple Crumble and Vanilla Snowflake 3-wick Candles
Yep, three. I don't always burn the same one but over the past few weeks there's usually been something lit at all times - I love the way the scent wafts up the stairs and makes the whole apartment smell cozy. I've enjoyed them a lot this winter. I'm down to one candle now, but I won't be purchasing any more for a while, and that's okay.
Bath and Body Works Lavender Macaron & Caramel Apple Mini candles
The first was not super lavender heavy, and subtly sweet. Too small to fill a room, but nice on my desk. The Caramel Apple had much stronger throw, and smelled deliciously of caramel, but this sometimes got to be too sweet.
Sephora Long-Lasting Liner in Glitter Khaki and Fancy Violet
Not useable any more (really watery and weird) and far too old. Tossing.
Dove Dry Shampoo
I hate the smell. HATE. Smells like the Buxom lip glosses to me, and it makes me kind of nauseous. I bought this months ago, tried it once, and stuffed it in the darkest, deepest cabinet. But it was only a few bucks and I can't stand it, so out it goes.
On the quest to empty things and reduce, reduce, reduce! I'm also trying not to buy any backups at the moment; I've got multiples of cleansers and things going on right now because I am trying out a lot of skincare (and I always try new things when I still have the old one left so that I can take it slow). I haven't bought anything beauty/skincare related this month (actually, I haven't purchased anything, not even new knitting needles) so far, so here's hoping it will last!
