Today I’m going to show you all of the products I’ve used up since the last time I posted about it. I have a TON of stuff I’ve used up, and I am also getting rid of some stuff that is just too old to use or I don’t really like. Get ready for a long post!
First I’m going to show you all the things I’ve used up, then I’ll go through all of the other stuff I am getting rid of!
Stuff I’ve Used Up:
So the first set of things I used up is a bunch of the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +. I used up a full sized pump bottle and two small travel sized bottles! I’ve already repurchased this, as it’s a staple in my skincare regime. My skin is super sensitive, so I always make sure I have some on hand to go back to in case something else irritates my skin.
The next few products I used up are also from Clinique, and they are the Clarifying Lotion in number 1 and the Liquid Facial Soap Mild. I have repurchased the soap, but this time I decided to try the Mild Clarifying Lotion instead, since it doesn’t have any alcohol. Sometimes I thing the clarifying lotion with alcohol is a tad too drying.
The next few things I’ve used up were some sample sized skincare items. Two are from Shiseido’s Benefique line (the NT Lotion and the NT Emulsion II), and the other two are small samples from Skinfood’s Royal Honey line (the Royal Honey Toner and Royal Honey Emulsion). I really liked all of these, however I enjoyed Skinfood’s version the best! They smell amazing and are super moisturizing, so I am considering getting products from this line in the future.
I also used up my small travel size of The Body Shop’s Moringa Creme Exfoliant, which I really enjoyed. I have the shower gel, and so I thought I’d enjoy this, and I was right! I’m using a different one right now, but I might buy this again in the future. I also used up another Lancome Bifacil travel size, and as I have mentioned before, I really enjoy it. I’m using a full size my mom gave me right now! Since I used up my travel sized Origins Modern Friction exfoliant, I am planning on buying the full size when Sephora has their VIB sale next week! This product was awesome at exfoliating my face without causing irritation, so I definitely think it is worth the price!
I used up my Shara Shara Lemon Honey All-in-One Cream, which was an awesome body lotion! It smelled so good that I want to buy another, but I have some other body lotions I need to use up first, haha. I used up a travel sized version of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, which is a primer I really love and will probably go back to after I finish up my Nars primer. I don’t feel like there is much of a difference and the Urban Decay one is significantly cheaper. The Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy in Pomegranate, Argan, and Grapeseed was also really nice, and I have since purchased more! I love these hand creams, haha. I also, unfortunately, used up the last of my Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse sunscreen over the past few months. I still can’t believe they discontinued it! I would purchase this again and again if I could, since it was my Holy Grail sunscreen, but for now, the search for a replacement continues!
As far as makeup goes, I used up 3 different mascaras. I used up the XO Memebox I’m Mascara in #02 Soft Brown quite a while ago, and I used up the Benefit Bad Gal Lash and the Urban Decay Perversion travel sizes more recently. I actually received another travel size of the Perversion mascara that I am currently using, and I still like it just as much! I really enjoyed all three of these, actually, so I may purchase them again in the future!
The last two products I used up are the Burt’s Bees Original Lip Balm and a small size of the Fresh Sugar Lip Balm in Rose. I love Burt’s Bees lip balms and so I always buy them again and again! I enjoyed the Fresh lip balm but I don’t think I will purchase the full size, as it’s just too expensive for what you get. I enjoy the Burt’s Bees more, haha.
Stuff I’m Getting Rid Of:
I have few things that have gotten too old or that I don’t like, so I’m going to show you those today as well!
First is the sample size BB creams from Skin79. I got these ages ago and mostly used up the hot pink and gold ones, but I never bothered to finish them and I’m pretty sure they’re expired now, so it’s time to toss them! I did like them, but I don’t think I’ll purchase a full size, since I have other BB creams I prefer.
The next two things I’m throwing out are a sample of a Lancome foundation (which has just gotten too old to use) and this ddung lipstick that I originally reviewed here, but I ended up not liking at all, so I figured I should get rid of it. I’d give it away if I felt it was worth it, but unfortunately I don’t want to push this on anyone, haha. And it broke, so thats just another reason to toss it!
The last two things I’m tossing are a sample size of the Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil and an old Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (in the original formula). I just didn’t use the oil and the bottle of it broke, so I’m sure the product inside has gone bad already. I had it sitting for a long time, lol. The Clinique lotion is just one I never used up after they updated the formula, so I figured it’s time for that to go as well.
So that’s it guys! These are all the products I’ve used up over the past 5 months or so and the ones I’ve decided to toss! What have you used up recently? Let me know in the comments!
