Gettin’ Trashy (Empties)

 Time for another round of products that I have used up!    


Skincare : 

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water – I absolutely LOVE this stuff.  It removes all of my makeup so fast and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy afterwards. Repurchase:  YES

Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover – I thought this was the best makeup remover until I tried the Simple one.  This stuff takes me forever to remove all of my makeup, and it’s greasy.  Repurchase? NO

Dior Instant Gentle Cleansing Oil – ehh.  This was ok.  I still felt the need to wash my face after using this, but as a makeup remover, it worked good. It’s $38 too. Repurchase? NO

Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser –  this is probably the 5th tube I have purchased of this; it’s my favorite cleanser.  I use this everyday with my Clarisonic and it leaves my face feeling clean and hydrated.  REPURCHASE? YES

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser – Noooo.  I redeemed 500 Sephora points for a set of Fresh skincare products, and this was included.  I used this up, but the smell is horrible.  It’s a natural scent, but also like cucumbers.  I usually am not sensitive to smell, but this stuff stunk. It was pretty drying to my skin, too. Repurchase? NO

Glamglow Youthcleanse Daily Exfoliating Cleanser – I got this in a sample bag, and I actually thought it was the mask (which I’ve tried before), but it wasn’t, it’s the new(ish) cleanser.  I really liked this, actually.  It cleaned out my pores and left my skin feeling tingly and nice.  Repurchase? YES

Lancôme Genifique – I redeemed 100 points for this little sample that lasted me almost 2 weeks.  I really loved this, so I put it on my birthday wish list.  I have been using it for about a month now, and I LOVE IT.  I use it morning and night before my moisturizers and I’ve seen a big difference in the radiance and texture of my skin.  Repurchase? YES

Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum – I used this before I used the Lancôme one, and I really liked this one too.  It’s a little bit cheaper, but it gives great results.  It’s thicker than the Lancôme, and it does a great job of evening out skintone and hydrating. Repurchase? YES

LUSH Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner- let me just start off by saying that I do not like scented lotion.  THIS lotion is the only scented one I will wear.  The reason is because it smells like roses and all of my perfumes smell like roses so the scents never clash.  My friend Courtney works at LUSH and gave me this sample because I told her I loved it.  I used it up in just a couple of days.  I got a new tub of it for my birthday a few days later.  It moisturizes so well; my legs feel so soft and smooth all day with this. Repurchase? YES

up & up Acetone Nail Polish Remover- i bought the acetone version of this by accident (shopping with two kids lol) and I don’t like using pure acetone.  Being the cheapskate that I am though, (questionable?) I used it up, even though it dried out my hands out like a mother.  I usually just buy generic regular nail polish remover.  To me, they are all the same.  Repurchase? NO.


Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Fairly Light – this is my trusty lazy girl foundation.  I use up about one of these every year, and I use it on days when I’m in a rush and just want a lighter coverage.  Repurchase? YES

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly- BEST CONCEALER I HAVE EVER USED. I use it for dark circles, redness, spot concealing, highlighting…it does everything and I love it. Repurchase? YES

MAC ProLongwear Concealer in NW15- this concealer is very full coverage, and I like to use it to mix w moisturizer and apply it all over my face.  It also works really well on dark circles.  Repurchase? YES

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel- it’s a clear brow gel, it does the job and keeps my brows in place all day.   Next time I’ll try a tinted one.  Repurchase? YES

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Black- this is a really good liquid liner, but there are cheaper alternatives- Jordana Fabuliner and MAYBELLINE Master Precise to name a few.  This is a good liner though – really black and does stay all day.  Just one of those products that I think drugstores can dupe pretty easily.  Repurchase? NO.

Whew.  Now I can throw all this trash away.  There’s nothing better than using something up!

Thanks for reading!
