Yahoo! Lots of empties the past 2 weeks!
I will start with the obvious non-emptied foundation bottles to the left. L'OREAL True Match Lumi in W1-2 is just too light/pink for me. I'm going to send this to my sister. L'OREAL True Match in W-3 is too pink as well. I'm wondering if the W means pink and the C means yellow? Can someone help me out on that? If that's the case, no wonder I can't find a match! I also have tried N1-2 in LUMI and that was too pink as well. Let me know! The Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation in SP30 is too light for me as well. I'm thinking I need SP50 for the summer. It has a SPF of 42 which is perfect for me. This might be too yellow for my sister but I will send it along anyway.
Just the Basics Shave Cream, which I didn't know was a cream but thought it was a gel when I bought it at CVS didn't not work for me. I let my 3 year old play with it in the bath! My legs are pretty sensitive and this gave me instant razor burn. I didn't even finish shaving my leg.
Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap in Lavender. It's the ultimate multi-tasker. Will repurchase in both this flavor and all others. I'm going to start using it as a natural cleanser as well for the house.
Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask is pretty good and it's at the commissary so I can pick it up with my groceries. I will repurchase.
Julep Mask Noir was okay. It's super messy and difficult to wash off your hands after application. It also stains white face cloths. Who would have thunk? I might have another application but I'm going to skip it. I do like the peel off aspect of it. My face was soft after using it. I didn't see any other results though.
Suave Smoothing Body Lotion with Cocoa Butter & Shea. This has a great, fresh scent. I would consider picking this one up.
Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter. My last one! I need to get down to Wilmington and replenish the supply!
Amlactin Moisturizing Body Lotion. This lotion stings, not just after shaving either. After every time. Yikes! Alpha-Hydroxy acids hurt y'all. But they are good exfoliators. Maybe this lotion will be better for me in the summer. Ouch.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye. This lasted forever. I even thought it was empty and was still able to use it for a few more weeks. It's finally empty. I will repurchase the cream version, Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex. I saw pretty good results after using 2 samples of the previous. When I went to purchase the full size, the sales associate steered me towards the serum.
Organix Hydrating Macademia Oil Shampoo & Conditioner. I picked these up, well on clearance of course, but because I loved the hair mask. These were very drying. I added avocado oil to both of them and they were tolerable. Avocado oil makes every shampoo and conditioner better. I won't repurchase.
Epielle Facial Essence Mask Collagen with Vitamin E. I bought several of these during one of Big Lots 20% off sales. They are 60 cents a piece. They are nice and cheap. Alcohol is the 6th ingredient. Not super happy about that.
100% pure coconut nourishing body cream. Initially it smells a little funny, earthy, raw but later in the day it smelled really nice. I liked that I could smell it throughout the day too. Really nice ingredients too. I might need to pick this up.
Caldrea Aromotherapeutic Body Lotion in Coconut Fig Leaf. If I could smell like this for all the days of my life. I would buy buckets of this stuff. I saw that Caldrea is on Vitacost but not the lotion. $22 for 8 fl. oz. If I win the lottery...
Kiehls' Fig Leaf and Sage is another scent that I love. I tried the body cleanser it was luxurious. $24 for 8.4 fl.oz.
Derma Doctor DD cream was too dark so I couldn't really test it out since I'm in the public eye a lot!
Kiehl's BB Cream is really nice! It has an SPF 50 and smells of sunscreen but the coverage is nice. I would pick this one up if I didn't have any other BB creams in rotation.
There are a few other oils and serums but since they were 1-2 use foil packets, I can't really formulate an opinion of them after such short time use.
Oh I was thinking that they Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Blemish Control was actually green like the package, but it isn't. I was thinking it was a color correcting thing. Oh well. But I still would like to have a full size of this around for days when I need a blemish treatment.
I actually finished a perfume sample! Victoria's Secret Bombshell. I will be purchasing a full size. I liked this one a lot. One day I will share my perfume sample "collection."
