What's in my Trash?! #32

Going through some construction lately meaning I've been having to do a lot of cleaning, organizing, and basically soul searching. That's when I realized just how many foil packets I've been "saving for a vacation" and that's when it hit me. Vacations are (sadly) far and few in between and anyways the thought of spending time away from home drives me to bring the tried and true products otherwise my skin will really rebel. Therefore I made a conscious effort to go through a good amount of foil packets this month giving me a plethora of trash to share. I also finished up some favorites of mine that I'll have to remember to go out and repurchase.

  • Latisse (Full Size) I've been using this stuff for so long I'm starting to question whether or not it's actually effective. I'll keep using it though in fear of my eye lashes falling out if I stop!
  • Etude House Moistfull Collagen Facial Toner (Sample) This stuff was weird. It was more like a gel consistency so it reminded me more of a serum than a toner. Also difficult to get out of the packaging and kind of messy. Not something I would repurchase.
  • Klorane Mango Butter Hair Mask (Full Size) This stuff was fantastic! Putting it on and rinsing it out didn't feel like anything special but once my hair was dry it was soft and weightless! It also smelled amazing and was a scent that didn't linger (which is a good thing for me). I would definitely repurchase this as a treat from time to time because it is quite pricey.
  • Etude House AC Clinic Acne Foam Cleanser (Sample) This was alright. I got about three uses out of this packet which was pretty awesome. It worked well with my Clarisonic but overall not something super impressive so it wouldn't be something I would seek out.
  • Rock Your Hair Dry Shampoo (Sample) Terrible and left my hair white. I would not purchase this.
  • Doctor D. Schwab Alphasomes C-8 Flawless Skin Brightening Serum (Full Size)I like the packaging of this. It's one of those pumps where the bottom lifts up as you go so you really get to use every last drop of it. Product itself though wasn't that fantastic so I wouldn't repurchase.
  • Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner (Sample) So many uses out of this tiny bottle, but not anything amazing so I would repurchase.
  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion (Full Size) I did feel like this worked to an extent at helping with acne but it really wasn't that amazing and it also didn't mix well with my toner so I think I'll be passing on this and sticking with my Garnier fading lotion.
  • Derma e Very Clear Spot Treatment (Full Size) I've talked about this in a previous post but this spot treatment just didn't work for me. I'll pass.
  • Tokyo Milk Hand Cream (Sample) I loved this hand cream, it smells like a delicious vanilla cake and was very nice. Someday I may purchase this but for now I have a ton of hand cream samples so I don't quite need it just yet.
  • Nivea Cocoa Butter Body Lotion (Sample) This stuff was rich and creamy but I didn't think it provided that great of a lasting hydration. I'll pass.
  • Etude House Big Cove Concealer BB in Vanilla (Sample) This stuff is THICK! Sadly the color was about 20 shades too late for me but just a tiny dab succeeded in covering half my face and it covered just about everything. It did feel like it was product that would not work well with my oily skin so I will pass on ever picking this up.
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (Sample) This broke me out bad. I have quite a few sample packets yet so now it's the struggle of throwing them away and wasting product or suffering quietly with acne. I guess I could always give them to someone too...
  • Benefit the POREfessional (Samples x3) Fantastic stuff, I love how it make my skin feel. Thankfully I can achieve the effect with the much cheaper but comparable L'Oreal Baby Skin, but I'll never pass up a free sample of this stuff!
  • Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Lifting Neck Cream (Sample) One little packet didn't give me much results or wow me so I won't be picking up the full size of it.
  • First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser (Sample) Average. Not worth the money in my opinion so I'll pass.
  • Perfume Sample (Sample) I really can't figure out what this perfume sample is but either way it's perfume and I won't purchase it since I already have my go to scents.
  • Etude House Wonder Pore Tightening Essence (Sample) Another piece to the Wonder Pore line, this also got a ton of uses from a tiny bottle. I do love their tiny sample bottles though, so great. Not something I would purchase though, I just didn't notice that much going on with it.
  • AngelLooka Ultra Moisturizing Foot Mask Pack (Full Size) For once not an exfoliating pack this is suppose to be a shea butter powered moisture one. It really didn't live up to its calms of ultra soft feet though, so not something I would go for.
  • Esfolio Milk Essence Mask Sheet (Full Size) This milky sheet mask was fantastic. My skin was brighter and so soft to touch and it just felt good too. I would definitely pick this up again.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown (Full Size) Sadly I've fallen in love with the Brow Wiz again and they've also stepped up their packaging game with a tighter swivel so no more pulling out brow hairs! Unfortunately I will be dropping the cash on this stuff again because it's just so darn good!
