April 2014 UNfavorites & Face Wash Challenge Check-In!

This month some cute travel sized products as well as lip products fell victim to my wrath. I took a trip earlier this month and decided to take advantage of using up some sample sized items. Bad mistake. They made me break out like crazy, and one was just awful, I used it twice and was so offended by it I couldn't go on. I've been cycling through a lot of lip products this month, I'm wearing less and less makeup (I walk out of the house with brows done and two swipes of mascara now) so I've been getting into the habit of throwing on a lip.
  • Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion in Argan Rosewater. This smell, it's horrible. And it's very liquid-y and felt like it didn't moisturize at all, it just sort of sat on my skin and smelled awful. I can't stand to throw it away, so I've been using it as a foot lotion....
  • Sephora Instant Moisturizer. I received this in one of those gift with purchase deals at Sephora and finally got around to using it. It was very greasy and broke me out like crazy. I haven't had a breakout in months and I ended up with seven HUGE pimples along my cheek as well as a few small patches on my jawline. It took a good two weeks to get my skin back on track. I'm scared to use this even as a foot lotion.
  • Stila Lip Glaze in Black Cherry. It's funny that I have one in my favorites and one in my unfavorites, but this formula was so dramatically awful, I can't even. No matter what I did, it just would not go on evenly and it bled like crazy so it looked like I've been munching on some raw meat or something (ew visual). Definitely one color to skip when it comes to these glazes.
  • Eos Balm in Strawberry Sorbet. Is it just this particular flavor or are all Eos balms super hard and waxy? I can never tell if any product actually made it onto my lip and even when it does, it doesn't feel hydrating at all to me. I've been using this every day for well over a month now and it's just not doing it for me. Also the bulky packaging of it makes it impossible to stick into a purse so that annoys me too..
  • Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick in Breeze. I should put together a products I regret buying because what was I thinking when I bought this guy? It looks like metallic silver on my lips, when and where can I possibly wear this?? I think I wasn't paying attention when I grabbed it thinking it was just a nude, but no, I was so wrong.
It's the never ending cleanser when it comes to the Garnier Fruit Gelee! I thought I was going to be done this month but I think maybe in another week or so this will be done. Also the Suki Foaming Exfoliating Face Wash, I think might be done for. The sugar has become rock solid that it will take a butter knife to get out some chunks. I'm going to try and do what I can to make it pliable again but outlook looks grim. Next on the list is conquering Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser, that clay smell really bothers me so more the reason to focus on it and get it out of my shower. Finally the St. Ives Fresh Skin Scrub has gotten a few uses, it was especially helpful through that breakout nightmare from the moisturizers and helped me get my skin back to feeling normal again.
