Culling the Stash, Part 3: April's EmptiesFriday, May 03, 2013
Hello! Can you believe it's already May?! Longer days, warmer weather (sort of) -- I love it!
I didn't do as well as last month with finishing up products in April, but I still managed to empty some things.
-I bought this last year while I was in Toronto. This was a decent body scrub, but I think this scent is discontinued.
Buy?: Maybe, in another scent available. There aren't any B&BW stores here though, so I'd probably only buy another scrub if I was visiting somewhere where there was one.
2. Cover FX Skin Prep FX Primer
-Another awesome primer by Cover FX. I'm not sure how beneficial the "anti-aging" part is though.
Buy?: Yes, or another type (like Clear Prep).
3. Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil
-Chock-full of silicones and not really that special.
4. L'Oreal Hair Expertise Re-Nutrition Intense Mask
-Not a bad hair mask, but not as moisturizing as I prefer. Read my full review here.
Buy?: Not this specific product, but I'd buy other L'Oreal Hair Expertise products.
5. Dark Circle Under Eye Treatment
-This didn't really do anything for my dark circles, and I find my eye area doesn't need its own cream as its always fairly hydrated anyway.
6. Cucio Naturale Pomegranate & Fig Butter
-This smelled amazing and is a great body lotion. I cut open the back to use every last drop!
Buy?: Maybe. It's about $20 for a full-size tub and I already own 34757238 body butters/lotions that I can't justify spending that much on another just yet. But if I ever use them all up and/or find a good sale, I would probably purchase.
7. Essie Sleek Sticks samples
-These wouldn't fit any of my nails and I found them difficult to file down/reshape. I really love the designs but it's difficult to know the wear-time when I can't really wear them.
Buy?: Probably not, unless they were on deep clearance.
8. Eucerin Hyal-Urea Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream
-A good day cream, though I wish it had SPF.
Buy?: Maybe, though I'd probably buy the night version instead.
9. Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Refreshing Gel-Creme
-I really like Garnier Body's lotions, and this one was neat. I could see the gel being especially nice on a hot summer day!
10. Supersmile Powdered Mouthrinse
-Neat concept; you add water to the packet to make a mouthrinse/wash. I like that there isn't alcohol in this but I generally prefer liquid mouth wash. I could see this being useful for travel, especially for long flights or camping.
11. Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Tinted Moisturizer
-This was too yellow for my skintone and didn't offer very much coverage (though it is just a tinted moisturizer).
12. Sally Hansen Polish Strips sample
-Similar deal with the Essies in that they didn't exactly fit my nails. They were a better fit and I got a day out of them, so they weren't bad.
In interesting news, I got a new camera! The Canon Powershot SX240 HS (almost the same as the SX260 I wanted, but without the GPS). My husband bought it for me as an early birthday gift and we got it at Shoppers at the 20x the points event, so now I have $85+ worth of points! Yay! I still need to figure out the best lighting situation so my pictures won't have a darker background like you see above, but overall I'm quite pleased with it!
What products have you finished lately? Have you tried any of the above? Let me know!
