What's in my Trash?! #18

Welcome to the first month of the NEW format for What's in my Trash?! Not too much has changed but I'm doing it in a way now where I just show three product images at once and then describe them. I feel like this way it is easier to match the product to the description visually! This way I can also take away the text overlay on the product which actually saves a lot of time which is fantastic for me! This is a particularly long empties post, I went through quite a sheet mask phase so I wanted to get them all in at once. By no means is this all though, I'm sure the next month will have about half the empties being sheet masks! I'm also trying to provide more information for each product including the size and a more articulate review of it, so here we go!

Yadah Vita-Whitening Aqua Gel (Sample): This was a tiny capsule sample I got from a Memebox and I actually loved it! It was a nice moisturizing gel that really controlled my oily face well and left my skin feeling silky soft. I need to hunt it down and when I do I will definitely get a full size!
REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask (Sample): I got this as a sample from Birchbox, I wasn't crazy about it. It definitely stung when it was on but I didn't feel like it really did anything. I got about five uses out of this but still nothing to show for it so I wouldn't buy it.
Sonya Dakar Flash Facial (Sample): This was one of those fun minute facials where you put it on and then rub it off after a minute. I actually loved it and thought my skin responded well to it, but the full size is quite pricey so unless I find some crazy deal I won't be buying the full size of it.
 
Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Almond & Honey (Full Size): My favorite sugar scrub that I get from Walmart for super cheap. I have a stash of these and I will keep buying it. I keep wanting to try the Brazilian Nut scent but I have yet to catch it in stores but I will keep buying this scrub, just not necessarily this same scent always.
Bare Food Moisturizing Massage Cream (Full Size): This lotion was fun because it was blue, but it wasn't that moisturizing and not something I would buy again.
Feeling Beautiful Facial Creamy Scrub Apricot (Full Size): This smelled really good and was this great gel consistency with a gentle scrub to it. I really liked it but I just have so many facial cleansers and other favorites that I probably won't repurchase it.
 
St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash (Full Size): Favorite body wash ever. I have these in almost every single month and it's the same rave review each time, I've already repurchased it and will keep on repurchasing it for a long time to come.
Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Invigorating Shampoo (Full Size): This was a fantastic clarifying shampoo and it actually worked great and lasted a long time. I loved the tingling scalp feeling and how squeaky fresh my hair felt. I will be repurchasing this again after I finish up the other bottle of clarifying shampoo that I have currently and don't like as much.
DDF Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew (Sample): For an oil free moisturizer it caused my face to erupt with oil. This didn't work well with my skin type but it was moisturizing. A shame because I'm a huge fan of DDF products, so I was sad this didn't work out for me and it won't be something I repurchase.
DD'ell Extra Vitalizing Serum (Full Size): This was an average performing serum that I got in a Memebox. Not something I would repurchase and the whole dropper design of the bottle drove me crazy especially when the push button got stuck before I was done using the product.
ChapStick Hydration Lock (Full Size): This was a pretty great chapstick with a delicious cupcake smell to it, it's something I would repurchase but first let me finish all the millions of balms I already have.
Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil (Full Size): Possibly the best drugstore eyeliner that I've ever used. Cheap (~$2), super black, very creamy, and pretty much budge proof. I have quite a few black liners right now to use but this will be my go to liner in the future.
   
Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Shampoo (Full Size): My favorite shampoo ever! I'm actually trying a different one right now (still Garnier) but after that I will probably go back to this. I won't by this type of bottle though, the pump got stuck a lot and it was hard to get the last bit out (I had to pour it into a jar) but this will definitely be repurchased in the future.
Key West Aloe Gentle Aloe Facial Cleanser (Sample): This smelled like Mentos and wasn't anything special. Not something I would purchase a full size of.
InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask (Full Size): I received this free for my consideration
Eclos Apple Stem Cell Skin Care Aqua Balm Finishing Mist (Full Size): Something I received in a Freeman's mystery bag. At first I didn't know what to do with it but realized it was a perfect finishing mist for my nighttime routine. It promised improved skin texture in two weeks but I honestly didn't see a difference. It didn't have the greatest smell either, kind of like rotting apples, so not something I will purchase.
Garnier Fructis Instant Bodifier Dry Shampoo (Full Size): My favorite drugstore dry shampoo that smells delicious and costs around $5! Works very well and leaves hair feeling soft yet clean so I definitely hoard these and have plenty more!
Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel (Sample): Similar to the Sonya Dakar Flash Facial, yet it didn't work as well. This tiny sample only lasted me two uses so I really didn't get a feel of the product. Not something I would purchase. 
Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara (Full Size): This used to be my go to brow gel but in reality it is a mascara so the brush isn't too great. I've found a different drugstore product that is brow specific and I like a lot better so I won't be repurchasing this.
TonyMoly I'm Real Lemon Mask Sheet (Full Size): I love anything vitamin C and I felt my face did look brighter after use. This would be one I would pick up again if it were easily accessible to me.
Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask in Strawberry (Full Size): This smelled soo delicious and my skin felt so soft and hydrated afterwards. Another one that I would love to get more of.
Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask in Tea Tree (Full Size): All I can say about this was that it was very wet. I had it on for almost an hour and the sheet still felt soaked through. I wasn't a huge fan because I felt like I was wasting a lot of product so I wouldn't buy this again.
Etude House 5 Berry Complex Mask (Full Size): I didn't feel that much difference using this, so it wouldn't be a sheet mask that I would pick up again.
Beauty Treats Aloe Vera Facial Mask (Full Size): If I remember correctly I got this at a store found in the US which is a good thing because one of these guys on a sun-burnt face is heaven! It was very cooling and soothing on my face and reduced redness all over. Two thumbs up and I can see this being a summer staple!
Daylight Tomato Essence Mask (Full Size): This was kind of the smell of crisp ketchup...weird description I know...but I wasn't a fan of it so any good it might have done was negated by the unappealing smell for me. Not something I would repurchase.
Maybelline Define A Brow (Full Size): My favorite drugstore brow pencil! Unfortunately I'm out of this particular pencil right now and I have a ton of others to work through but once I make a dent in my stash I will definitely be picking up more. It's super easy to work with for a soft, natural look making it the perfect everyday product fo me.
Innisefree It's Real Squeeze Mask in Lime (Full Size): Again vitamin C! Besides the miss with the Tea Tree one this whole line of "It's Real Squeeze Mask" has been a huge hit for me and I would totally buy this again.

What are some of your empties from this month? If anyone knows what the best place to buy Innisfree products online is please share, I need more of these masks!
