What's in my Trash?! #25

It's a product winter up in here. I just really didn't use up that many things this month except for mascara. Yes you heard me, mascara. I've apparently had a lot of mascara that ran out throughout the course of the month. Some favorites and some that I've been just trying and some that I've just held on for way too long because it took awhile for me to piece together that my eyes were burning because the mascara has expired. Anyways, let's dive into the few bits of trash I have gathered for you guys this month!

  • Paula's Choice Clear Acne Treatment (Full Size) This is a pretty great all over treatment for acne. After I've cut down on my skincare items I think I will pick this back up. It was effective and lasted a long time.
  • Nail Polish Remover (Full Size) Horrible dollar store nail polish remover, so never again. It's really not worth it, just go for the generic brand at a drugstore because your fingers will turn to prunes before it will even remove the top clear coat.
  • TimeBalm Kiwi Facial Scrub (Full Size) This is a great daily cleanser with some scrubbing power. I actually have another one of these guys already but I'll probably keep buying it since it's a versatile nighttime cleanser.

  • L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm (Full Size) The best hair mask you'll buy for $5! Cheap and effective. I'm trying a few different products right now so for now I won't repurchase it but this is definitely a staple in my hair care.
  • PureDerm Skin Turn-Over Lemon Peeling Toner (Full Size) I actually loved this toner, it was great for evening and brightening my skintone. I wish it was easily accessible in the US because then it would be my go to jam!
  • eos Coconut Milk Lip Balm (Full Size) One of my favorite lip balms, I have quite a collection of these things. It smells good and is very soft and hydrating on the lips, I'll keep buying these.

  • OZ Naturals Retinol Serum (Full Size) I wasn't crazy about this it kind of made my face feel very tight and tacky at the same time. I guess maybe that means the retinol was working? Either way not a fan and I won't be repurchasing this.
  • Latisse (Full Size) Trusty Latisse, it works, I get a bunch of this stuff for free so I won't exactly be purchasing it but I will keep using it.
  • Garnier + Clean Balancing Daily Exfoliator (Full Size) This was a delicious grapefruit smell that was very fresh and great to use in the morning to perk up my skin. I loved using this with my Clarisonic so once I make it through my stash of face washes I do believe I'll return to this one as my go to morning cleanser.

  • Clear Care Lens Cleaner (Full Size) Trusty contact lens solution, yes I'll keep buying it.
  • Keims Peppermint & Macadamia Shampoo (Full Size) I tried a sample of this stuff in my Birchbox and loved it but I think between the sample and me purchasing it they reformulated the shampoo because I wasn't crazy about this at all. I loved the sample because it really made my hair feel squeaky clean, the effect was lost in this bottle, so this won't be something I repurchase.
  • Maybelline Define A Brow (Full Size) Love this brow pencil! I wish I could find it in drugstores again because having to order it from Ulta is kind of annoying. I have a few of these guys and I'll keep picking them up for as long as I can.

  • Milani Clear Brow Gel (Full Size) This is a great brow gel, the brush is the perfect size and it does the job. I'm stocked up on this stuff too but it will be something I keep repurchasing.
  • YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils (Full Size) I got this as something to try because trust me I would never spend so much money on a mascara just for the heck of it. I was not a fan at all. It flaked and smudged on me and really didn't do much, plus the packaging was horrible and messy. Not something I would purchase myself.
  • Benefit's They're Real! Mascara (Full Size) Speaking of expensive mascaras, now this is one that I will buy! My favorite mascara ever, I've grabbed a few in the recent VIB sale so I can be stocked up for awhile.


  • Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara (Full Size) On the other end of the spectrum I love this as a final "comb through" mascara. It's great for separating lashes and defining them, as well as the perfect natural mascara when I just want a few coats to darken my lashes.
  • L'Oreal Voluminous Manga Mascara (Full Size) The last mascara in the bunch, for some reason this guy just dried up really fast after I opened it. I used to love this mascara but I found that it was very clumpy this time around and really didn't have much effect on my lashes. Probably won't pick this up anymore.
  • Coola Makeup Setting Spray (Sample) How funny this is the only sample size product from this month. This isn't exactly empty but the spray pump is broken and I can't unscrew the top so I'm chalking this up as a lost cause. I'm a fan of this stuff, a delicious smelling setting spray with SPF. This was great in the summer for a little sun protection. I already have it marked as a favorite in my Birchbox account and I plan on picking up the full size next summer!
