Today I’m going to share with you the massive amount of stuff I’ve used up since last time I did one of these posts almost 7 months ago.
I’ve been trying to make sure I use up a lot of the items I have open, in particular skin care. And with that, I’ll show you what I’ve used up!
First of all, I got my hair colored at the beginning of January, so I’ve been doing my best to only wash my hair every other day instead of everyday. In order to do that, I need to use dry shampoo on the second day so my hair won’t look dirty, haha. So I picked two sample sized dry shampoos to dry first, the Biotera dry shampoo and the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day dry shampoo.
As I mentioned in one of my previous favorites, I really loved the Living Proof one, so I’ve been buying that over and over since, haha. The Biotera one smelled good, but I think the Living Proof one makes my hair look way cleaner.
Next are some of the products from the Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! Memebox! I finally was able to use up the Bory Aqua Calming Cream and the Q-10 Moisture Eye Serum and the Vella Fresh Creamy Soap! I really liked the Calming Cream and the Soap the best, but unfortunately I don’t know where I can buy these in the US, so I won’t be repurchasing them.
I also used up one of the Clinique Liquid Facial Soaps in the Mild formula, along with two of the smaller sized All About Eyes Eye Creams! I know I finished one of the eye creams right after my last empties post, but I’m surprised I finished another one within that time! I already repurchased the soap and I normally would have repurchased this particular eye cream, but when I went to Macy’s when they had the Clinique gift time they were sold out of it. I bought the “Rich” version of it instead, and so far I’m liking it!
I also have finished and repurchased the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum, which I really loved! I think this is a product I will keep coming back to when I run out, since I really do enjoy using it.
The next product I used up is this full sized Lancome Bi-Facil makeup remover. My mom got it in a makeup kit but she doesn’t like this type of remover, so she gave it to me, hahahaha. I really like this remover, but I’m surprised that I’ve used this up so fast! I don’t think I’ll ever shell out the money for a full sized bottle myself though. The Clinique one seems to work better for me and is much cheaper.
I’ve also used up 4 hand creams; two from Crabtree & Evelyn (Avocado and La Source), and two Korean brands. The echoice one I also got from the same Memebox as the Bory and Vella products, and I’m surprised that as I used it I came to like it much better than when I first tried it. The other one is from Skinfood and I could definitely see myself purchasing it again because the scent wasn’t too overpowering and the cream itself was very nice!
There are also a few products from The Body Shop that I’ve used up (forgive me for the gross bottle/jars!). I used a small tub of both the Coconut Body Butter and Body Scrub, and I have since repurchased the scrub because I really loved it! I also used up this giant container of the Moringa Shower Gel, which took me forever to use up! The price was about $16, and it lasted me such a long time, so I think it was well worth it. However, I haven’t repurchased it since I have a lot of other shower gels I have to finish up first, haha.
I also used up one of the Burt’s Bees lip balms, this time in the Mango scent/flavor. I really liked this one, but the original is still my favorite. I’m currently using the pomegranate one, which has lasted me a surprisingly long amount of time, haha.
I also used up 3 mascaras; a mini size of both the Benefit Roller Lash and the Urban Decay Perversion, and the Memebox I’m Pro Mascara. I really liked all of these, but I haven’t repurchased because I always like to try new mascaras, haha. I already have some open that I need to use up as well before I buy any more.
Last but not least, these are the products I am throwing away. I liked this double ended Clinique Mascara, but I used up the mascara part a long time ago, and the lipstick part I hardly used so I figured it was time to toss it. I also used up most of this double ended brow pencil/gel combo from Revlon. It was ok, but I have other brow products that I prefer right now, so I probably won’t buy this one again. The sponge I’m tossing just got old and was starting to rip, so I decided to let that go.
The last thing I’m getting rid of however, is the Aveeno Baby Sunscreen. I bought this when I was still looking for a sunscreen that wouldn’t give me red bumps all over my face, and this one was ok. However, I brought it with my to the river when I took my lab class there to study flow rates and such, and it got completely ruined from being in the (not so warm- 75 degree) sun for 2 hours. It got separated and nothing I did would emulsify it again so I tossed it. I probably won’t buy it again unless I am desperate, haha.
So that’s all of the products I’ve used up over the past 7 months! Have you guys tried any of these? Let me know in the comments!
