What's in my Trash?! #31

Traaaaaaaaaaash time! Some pictures that ended up upside down and proof that I did participate in my 30 day mask challenge. I didn't think I had that many empties this month until the items really started piling up in the throw away box as I was taking pictures of everything. It always makes me happy when there's a lot of things, one day the rate in which I accumulate items will match the rate in which I finish them up.

  • Nella Fantasia Pore Control Astringent Gel (Full Size) This was a little astringent for my liking. It just didn't mix well with the other products I use nor did it do anything magical for my skin. Not something I would repurchase.
  • Garnier Cleansing Oil (Full Size) Still my favorite cleansing oil, I've tried a few at this point and this one just does the best job getting everything off with minimal rubbing. I'll continue buying it despite it's slightly faulty and leaky packaging.
  • Garnier Fall Fight Shampoo (Full Size) I tried a sample of this stuff a long time ago and liked it and for some reason decided to buy a huge thing of it. Needless to say I didn't like it as much as I remembered and while my hair didn't object to it, I wasn't in love with it either. I won't be buying this again.

  • St Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter (Full Size) Favorite, buying again, done.
  • Absolute Nail Polish Remover (Full Size) I liked these a lot more when I first got them but I think the longer they sit, even unopened, the drier they get. This is my second thing of these nail wipes and I found that they weren't nearly as effective as the first one. Unfortunately I still have two more of these things but this isn't something I will repurchase.
  • Cynthia Rowley Black Eye Liner (Sample) Very smudgey, not a fan at all. Won't be buying this.

  • Clean Perfume (Sample) Smelled awful, so no.
  • Mizon Avocado Sheet Mask (Full Size) I actually loved this. It fit my face very well and left my skin very soft without the sticky residue that a lot of these things leave behind. I would repurchase this.
  • TONYMOLY I'm Real  Makgeolli Mask Sheet (Full Size) This one was also very great, it actually brightened up my skin too. I would repurchase this.

  • L'Occitane Precious Cream (Sample) This is a very, very thick cream that is almost like a water mask in that it doesn't really soak into your skin all the way. It leaves your skin feeling tacky which was actually kind of hot and uncomfortable. And a very strong smell too. Not something I would buy.
  • Seche Vite Top Coat (Full Size) Best top coat ever. I will buy this forever.
  • Foreo Day Cleanser (Sample) I didn't think this was a very good cleanser at all, it smelled nice though. Not something I would repurchase.

  • OPI Metallic 4 Life (Full Size) I don't even know how old this polish is but I just happened to pick it up and discover that it was completely dried up. Black sparkle polish probably isn't something I would buy again.
  • Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer (Full Size) This stuff works amazing but the scent is heavily perfumed. I bought this stuff in the green tea scent instead and I like it a lot better, a more subtle smell. I won't repurchase this one again but I would buy the green tea one once I run out.
  • Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Almond & Honey (Full Size) My favorite budget friendly scrub. This is probably my third jar and it works great for a cheap price. I have a few scrubs going on right now but this is something I would definitely buy again.

  • Whish Lavender Body Butter (Sample) This stuff was watery, not what you expect from a body butter which implies it should be thick and luxurious. Also not a fan of the lavender scent (but my dog was very into it). Not something I would buy.
  • Yes to Cucumbers Facial Wipes (Sample) I loved these wipes, they were very wet and effective plus they smelled great. Currently I have the grapefruit variety which I find aren't as good, so if I ever find myself need makeup wipes I would pick these up.
  • Olay Fresh Effects Wet Clothes (Sample) These were awful at taking off makeup, much too dry and tugged at my skin. I wouldn't buy them.

  • Milani Easy Brow (Full Size) Very soft pencil making for dark and unnatural looking brows. My skin also got really oily from this meaning that this smeared like crazy and had me looking a hot mess when I used it. I wouldn't buy this again.
  • Maybelline the Falsies Mascara (Full Size) BEST volumizing mascara highend or drugstore hand down. These make my lashes so thick and dark and I have yet to find a mascara that does a better job. I can't believe I ever stopped using this but I will keep buying it.
  • Skinfood Strawberry Sheet Mask (Full Size) This smelled amazing however it was a little small for my face meaning I got a lot of the serum in my eyes which hurt. Not a good fit for my face so sadly I wouldn't buy this again.

  • Scinic Snail Matrix Essence Mask (Full Size) This was an average mask. People rave about how moisturizing snail masks are, but this one wasn't. It almost felt like I didn't even use a mask after I took this one off. Wouldn't buy it again.
  • Leaders Stepsolution Pore-Scaling Black Aqua Mask (Full Size) This mask was DRENCHED with serum and my face felt great after this. I would buy this again.
  • Absolute New York Exfoliating Foot Mask (Full Size) The most amazing exfoliating foot mask. Pro tip: Put on a pair of thick socks over the "mask socks" and you feet will peel so much more. This is my second time using this and I tried that method mainly because I wanted to be able to walk around and do stuff and having your feet really soaking in the essence made a world of difference. My feet are so ridiculously soft and summer ready right now.
