What's in my Trash?! #34

So this month I finished up a whole bunch of favorite staples as well as discovered some new favorite items which is always exciting. It was also a ton of full size items that I conveniently all finished at the same time so I'm really looking forward to sharing these things with you all. My skin has really been unhappy lately, I think it's a number of factors and changes causing it so I'm happy to find some things that are working with my skin and sadly I'm having to come up with a whole new skincare routine, but I love testing new things out and hunting out new products so really I don't mind TOO much.

  • Maybelline Define a Brow (Full Size) One of my favorite brow pencils, it's good for when I'm not too tan and looking for a soft, natural brow. I have a stockpile of this stuff and will probably keep buying it unless I find something better for the price.
  • Etude House Baking Powder Deep Cleansing Foam (Sample) I discovered this stuff in my stash and I just love it. I raved about it in a favorites for good reason. Basically it's creamy and gritty and makes my face feel squeaky clean. All pluses. I would love to purchase this again if I can ever come across it again.
  • Holika Holika Baby Silky Foot (Full Size) So I finally got my hands on the original Baby Foot because I stumbled across it in Marshall's for 50% off! As of this very moment I'm on week two of this stuff and the peeling has pretty much stopped. I must say I'm not as big of a fan as I am of the Absolute New York stuff, it just didn't peel as much. I'm happy to have finally tried the OG but I won't buy it again.

  • Simple Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes (Full Size) Raved about these wipes too which was surprising because the Micellar water itself did not work too well for me. They surprised me, they feel kind of dry but they ended up being ridiculously soft and effective! Got off even the most stubborn waterproof eye makeup with virtually no tugging with the added benefit of no sticky, drippy mess of excess liquid squirting out as I use them. I'm getting into a bad makeup wipe habit again but these will definitely be my wipe of choice if I can't kick the habit.
  • EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm (Full Size)
  • Garnier Skin Renew Clearly Brighter Overnight Leave-On Peel (Full Size)

  • Etude House Moistfull Super Collagen Ampoule Essence (Sample) I'm not really sure what this was suppose to do for me but I really didn't see anything miraculous. The packaging was a pain, this stuff is a thick gel so with it just being a regular bottle it was very difficult to coax it out. No I wouldn't hunt this out.
  • Garnier Whole Blends Coconut Water and Vanilla Milk Hydrating Mask (Full Size) One of the gems I found this month, I LOVE this hair mask! It beats out even my old drugstore favorite of the Erase Balm. It smells amazing and my hair is so soft and fluffy afterwards. Yes to this mask!
  • theBalm Timebalm Kiwi Facial Scrub (Full Size) I use to love this scrub and now I'm finding that it's not gritty enough for my liking. We had a good run Kiwi Scrub but I'm bowing out of this relationship now.

  • Secret So Very Summerberry Deodorant (Full Size) My favorite deodorant, smells delicious and works well. I'll continue buying this until I find a scent I like better.
  • Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black (Sample) Average eyeliner, it didn't smudge and handled tight lining well so no complaints here, but I have more than enough black eyeliners from subscription boxes so I won't repurchase this.
  • Etude House Silky Perfumed Treatment (Full Size) I wasn't crazy about this stuff, it had a sickly floral scent to it plus my hair felt kind of straw-like whenever I did use it, so I'll pass on this.

  • MOP Basil Mint Shampoo (Full Size) I love how this smells and how it tingles on the scalp. My hair also feels very clean after I use it, but sadly this stuff was discontinued so I won't be able to get it again.
  • Garnier Skinactive Clean+ Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes (Full Size) This is suppose to be acne fighting wipes. I didn't experience that but it did remove my makeup with some rubbing and tugging which I wasn't a fan of. However it does close really nicely, the sticky tab is reinforced with a thicker piece of plastic so it sticks really nicely to keep out the air. I wouldn't repurchase these again though since it was a really rough to get everything off.
  • St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash (Full Size) Love it, favorite body wash, I'll keep buying it.


  • Glamglow Supermud Mask (Full Size) I absolutely hate that I'm in love with this stuff because it is SO expensive. But it works so well, both as a mask and overnight spot treatment I'm just hooked. It was a savior when my skin was particularly rough so unfortunately I will continue buying these. I'm hoping and praying for another BOGO sale because that was an incredible deal.
  • Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion (Full Size) I know initially I wasn't crazy about this since the alcohol was reacting with my serum, but then I figured out to let the toner dry completely before applying everything else and now it is one of my most favorite toners. It's very effective and while I do have some other toners I need to use up, I think I will be back for more of this stuff.
