I Feel SOOO Accomplished!

I always look at blog posts showing the monthly empties they managed to get through and I always feel a little guilty. I have SOOOO much stuff I just need to get rid of and use up, and never manage too. And I am at the point now where I honestly don't buy many beauty products (aside from polish) due to the sheer mass of products I already have. I have even been good on the bath products list!!!

But finally I feel like I am on a roll and working through my products. And in the last five weeks I have managed to finish quite a few products!!!

Cake Milk Made Body Frothing Bath & Shower Cream
This is the first Cake product I have used that I didn't love. And not only did I not LOVE it, I didn't even LIKE it. I hate to say that because I love the brand.
Indulge your skin and your senses with vitamin-enriched body wash and bubble bath that smells of warm vanilla with a hint of raspberry. A blend of avocado oil, shea butter, whole milk and marshmallow extract wraps skin in moisture for soothing comfort and skin that is left clean, soft and protected.

That's the description given by the brand about the product. Now it DID smell nice. No raspberry hint I could detect, but it smelled like baked birthday cake. As for the bubble bath.... it didn't bubble at all. Ok, maybe a bit, but  really not much. I used quite a bit of product at once and couldn't even get a thin layer of bubbles over the entire surface of the water. And while it felt nice when I was soaking in it, it didn't leave my skin feeling soft and clean, it left it feeling greasy and kind of dirty..... I did use it all up, but I wont be purchasing again!

Biore Pore Perfect Triple Action Astringent
This astringent I love! I had really really oily skin as a teenager (though I was really pimple free until about age 22) and found that astringents were the thing that worked for me. Now that I am in my 30s I thought that pimples were an issue of the past but due to hormonal issues, I once more have the skin of a teenager! GRR!!! But this WORKS!! Its harsh, and its drying bur it does work well. I just follow it with my go to moisturizer!
Salicylic acid acne treatment. Oil-free. Cleanses, tightens & clears. Go for a clean sweep. Tingly-cool toner unclogs and tightens pores as it reduces surface shine. Helps prevent blackheads and blemishes. Made in Canada.Treats acne. Clears blackheads. Helps prevent new acne blemishes and blackheads.

And oh my does this product work!  Now this product has been reformulated. And while they now make BLEMISH FIGHTING ASTRINGENT in what they call a "new blue formula", it was not available ANYWHERE here. So I purchased a different brand that I hope works as well!

Butter London Powder Room Acetone Free Lacquer Remover
Now this product I didn't really love that much. It comes in a teeny tiny bottle which is great for travel but I normally find that acetone free polish removers just do not work. Julep is the first one I have tried that I find actually works well!

LUSH Cosmetics Dirty Shower Gel Sample
Not much to say about this other than I loved the smell of it so much and the quality of it I had to spend the gift card I had on a full sized bottle!!

Bath And Body Works FRESH PICKED tangerine anti bacterial hand gel
I have to say that these little hand sanitizers come in very handy. Between eating on the run between classes and geocaching I have started to really use these more than I care to admit. I got about 4 or 5 of these during the boxing day sales so I am good for these for awhile!

Spa H2O+ Sea Marine Revitalizing Shampoo
This is something I did not enjoy at all. Not the smell, the consistency or anything else.  I will not at all be replacing this and honestly if I had not been away from home I would not have even used the rest of this. I would have grabbed something else had I had that option!

Mevida Cleansing Wipes
These are just cheapo wipes I got at the dollar store. I never used these on my face. I keep them in my bag and find they were great when I got any mud or dirt on my feet durring sandal season. I will probably replace  these with whatever other wipes I find at the dollar store. Were these anything special? Meh! They worked!!!
