The "Not Quite Empty" Empties #NYG

Today I have something a little different to bring today. I'm all for using everything to the last drop, clearly, you can just feel the joy radiating from my empties posts, but every once in awhile I come across a product that is just so disagreeable for me I can't even force myself to finish it up. This is almost like an ultimate unfavorites post here, and there's some spoilers for my Project Second Chance in here, but it just had to happen. It's really hard to find a product that just offends me so much that I will admit defeat to it because it really pains me to even waste a product. Sometimes I can find homes for items that don't work with me but these are the things I would feel bad dropping on anyone else so they just had to find a new home in the trash can. FYI these products will not be appearing in my "Empties" because they aren't actually empties, so this will be the last you will see of them!

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. Fragrance free....in what world?! This smells so bad I can't even use it as a foot cream because it is so gag worthy. I don't care how much of a holy grail it is, it just smells so stinking bad that I can't use it.
Rimmel Retro Lash Mascara. This mascara is just awful and I'm expecting that it is what makes my lash line itchy. It's pretty clumpy and doesn't do much for me anyways so there's no point in keeping it around.
Davines Sea Salt Spray. This just dries out my hair like nobody's business and I just can't. I was thrilled when the spray nozzle broke and that is totally my excuse to chuck it into the trash. It takes two full weeks of deep conditioning hair masks to return my hair from the straw state that it causes, it's just not worth it to me to finish up a product that reacts so poorly to my hair and damages it.
Be A Bombshell One Stick in Flustered. How can this possibly be used as a cheek stain?? Unless I was going to be a clown for Halloween this wouldn't fly. The shape makes it awkward as a lipstick too.
Mario Badescu Drying Mask. This smells strongly of cigarette smoke, barely dries up blemishes for me, and stains my skin. No thanks, this is not something that ever needs to go on my skin ever again.
Wet n Wild Lipstick in Breeze. This color. What was I thinking when I picked it up? How could I NOT notice all the frosty shimmer that was going on there. Thankfully this cost a dollar so it doesn't hurt too much to chuck.

Have you ever ended up with a product that you just had to toss?
