Ah Friday, the day I look pack on all of the skincare products used throughout the week and take a moment to decide how I feel about them. Any product I use for more than thirty days gets it’s own full length post, but I like to take a weekly peep at the line up, just to check in and see how I feel about things. I generally find it helps to assess the products and how i feel about them even if it is too early for some of them to show legitimate results. So without further ado, lets start with the day time line up, shall we?
I had planned to rotate another of the small samples of cleanser I want to try out into my skincare line up this week, but completely forgot. So I used the Korres Foaming Cream Cleanser in both the morning and evening. It’s not really much of a hardship as it is a nice cleanser. I really like the fresh scent and feel to it. I expected it to have more of a dairy like scent to it as it is from their Yoghurt line and the mask I have from that line does have a very distinct yoghurt note to the scent. It doesn’t though, it just smells really clean and fresh. You know I really liked the Korres mask. I may actually end up using that this afternoon. But that is another topic.
The Time Revolution Artemisia Essence came in very handy yesterday actually. Well it has been good all summer really, but yesterday after spending a large chunk of the day fighting with the computer I really needed to just step away for a bit. I was planning to go to the gym, but my neighbor’s house just sold and the new owners are doing renovations. They have been really nice and considerate about things but at the moment one of their vehicles was blocking our drive. So I went on a walk instead. A very long walk.
And so I ended up spending a bit too much time in the sun and had to do a little soothing before bed time. I think the soothing helped more than my skin.
After two weeks with the ESPA eye cream, I am starting to really like it. It is a bit premature to say I see signs of effects, but it absorbs quickly and smoothly and hasn’t clogged the pores. For me the area around my orbital bone tends to get clogged pores more often than most of the rest of my skin so I am really careful about the products I use around my eyes. The ESPA Cream hasn’t clogged anything and feels really good on my skin. I know I won’t see any real results for about thirty days. Skin care isn’t magic after all, but I have my fingers crossed that there will be results as I like this cream. (I also took pictures to compare after thirty days.)
The OSEA Moisturizer is nice. I don’t really like the scent all that much, but the moisturizer is working really well. Two pumps covers my face and neck. I like that it is in a glass bottle with a pump as it keeps the product from becoming contaminated. If it weren’t for the scent I would really enjoy the moisturizer as it is a good product. It isn’t a bad scent. It is vaguely seaweed-y. I like the product enough that I can get used to the scent. And if another bottle appeared, I would still use it, but because of the scent I might not seek it out. I will keep using it though and perhaps it will grow on me. I also forgot to bring out another sample tube of sunscreen so I went back to my tried and true Volition Sunscreen. For those of you who like mineral sunscreen, they actually just released a mineral version of this sunscreen. I love this formula, but I also tend to like mineral sunscreens as they tend to leave less of a white cast on the skin. The last time I ordered my sunscreen I ordered a couple of bottles. So I want to work through them before I order new, but I think I may try out the mineral version next time I order sunscreen from Volition.
Most of these products I have talked about repeatedly. Don’t worry there will be some changes soon. For the most part I am very happy with the way the products are performing. The one product that I am not too fond of is the moisturizer. The Air Repair Complexion Boosting Moisturizer is just not working for me.
I had to stop using it during the day because it was just too much for my skin at this time of year and I think it may be even too much at night. Even though I list the Wander Beauty Night mask in my products, I didn’t actually use it this week because the Air Repair so over moisturized me that it would be madness to try and add it on top. I’ll have a full post on it up next week, but I just think this moisturizer isn’t for me. I tried a sample a while back and thought it worked pretty well, but this full size is just not working out. I will be taking it out of the rotation and rolling a different product in for this upcoming week.
While all of the other products worked well for me this week I have to say my star product is the Crest Gum Detoxify Deep Clean Toothpaste. I know that sounds strange to say, but my teeth feel fantastically clean. I don’t know what it is about the formula, but I really like it. Part is the taste I suppose. It is more peppermint than spearmint and I am a peppermint kind of person. But my mouth does feel fantastically clean. So Crest gets a gold star this week.
Both of these products I like. The Ole Henriksen Glow Facial is being used twice a week and the hey Honey Come Clean is being used once a week. The products are both fabulous and I will repurchase both in the future. With the Phat Glow Facial, I have to say, that pump is not my friend. Each use makes it stiffer and harder to use. I think I might actually be nearing the end of the product so that might explain part of it. The mask is just so thick that I don’t think it likes the pump format. I appreciate why the pump is being used (to keep air out of the product and keep it fresh) but I’m not so sure it works. I like the mask though and am willing to struggle with the pump in order to use the mask, so that is something.
I have a hard time not reaching for the Hey Honey more than once a week. I really only need a physical exfoliator once a week at most so i know I shouldn’t but the scrub always leaves my skin feeling so fantastically soft that I have a hard time not reaching for it on a daily basis. it is too much of an exfoliant to be used daily, and I know that which is why I restrict myself. I don’t want to over exfoliate and cause more issues to my skin, but it is a really nice product.
And that is it for my skincare this week. The good, the not so great and the soon to be replaced. At the moment things are working well for me in the skin department. There are a couple of small breakouts on my chin, but part of that is hormonal and pat of it is that I tend to lean on my hand during editing so you can actually see where I spent a lot of time with my hand on my face. Don’t you just love when you know that you are actually the source of your own issues? But soon this round of editing will be done and the hand will leave the chin.
This week was an interesting one with my skincare line up. I made a few changes, some planned and some just sort of happened. Part of the change is due to weather and my time spent outside. I’ve been limiting it more this week than I have before so things have been adjusting. Shall we take a deeper look?
Okay, let’s talk about the changes. First up is the deodorant. Put simply I ran out of my Naticve deodorant. I made a note to pick up a new one and then forgot. So I ended up with the Dove 0% deodorant. It is free of many of the same things that Native is free of. And I usually like dove antiperspirant. So it was a bit of a no brainer. I was prepared for the sweat. I was not prepared for the stink. I was a bit stinkier than I liked this week. I will concede that this was a brutal heat week so it does push most products to the breaking point. The stink wasn’t bad, at least no one remarked on it. But I was not a fan. And actually on the day when I did have my big meeting, I went with the Dove Antiperspirant I have as back up. Think I am going to try using the Dove when I am working inside and use the antiperspirant at the gym, at least until I’ve used up more product. I just don’t like wasting product. However I doubt I will get through this product and I certainly won’t be picking it up again. I love Dove, but this one was a fail for me.
Also a fail, the Balance Me Cleansing Milk. It works well but it is like washing your face with furniture polish. Using I, I found myself thinking of reasons to not wash my face. Finally I just gave in and went back to using the Korres. (it is listed in the night time line up. So at least I was washing my face at night). I love the thought behind the Balance Me products and when I use them they work really well. I just can’t take the scent for most of them. A couple of their serums I can push past the scent and use anyway. This cleanser is not one of them. I do not like it and to be honest, I will not be finishing the sample. I am done with it and it will not return.
Don’t worry, everything is more positive from here on out. I decided that I would use the Elemis eye mask at night, but that I would rotate in some of my eye cream samples for day time use. Even though they are small, I use so little eye cream each day that it takes forever just to get through a sample size. Which is fine, I actually like that kind of value in a product. However I do have a substantial pile of eye cream samples I need to work on using up. Since the Elemis is a large jar (no complaints, it is a fabulous product and I’m glad I get to use it a long time.) I will be spending a log time working through it. So I’ll use it at night and try other things in the day.
The current sample is an ESPA product. (They have a big sale on now if anyone is interested, the link will take you to it). I really enjoy ESPA products but I have to admit, I have mostly used their Hair products. (Highly recommend their Pink Mud Scalp mask). This eye cream is proving just as good as their hair care products. I am very much enjoying it. The sample tube is a pretty full one so I think it will last long enough for me to get a really good impression of the product. For the moment, my first impressions are really positive.
The moisturizer I am currently using as my day cream is the OSEA Atmosphere Protection cream. I rotated it in because the Air repair moisturizer was just too thick and heavy a cream for me to use during the day. This is much lighter and my skin seems really happy with the change. This is my first OSEA moisturizer actually. Generally if I am purchasing an OSEA product it is their cleanser. It smells exactly like a lemon lime slush from Sonic, and works fantastically. I’m hoping this moisturizer, despite not smelling quite as yummy as the cleanser, will work just as well. OSEA is a great natural brand and I love that their products come in beautiful frosted glass bottles. The frosted protects the cream as well as looking pretty and the glass just feels super lux.
The rest of the products in the lineup are continuations and I am quite pleased with how they are working out. This morning I used the very last drop of the Coola Silk Serum Sunscreen and am very sad that it is now empty. I will be putting it on the repurchase list as I really enjoyed it. It absorbed well without breaking me out and prevented sun damage. It was a great sunscreen. I have a couple of other sample sunscreens to try out so hopefully they will work just as well.
There is only one change to the night time line up and that is the addition of the Herbal Dynamics Beauty Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I tried it a while ago when the brand sent it over in a package. I used every last drop, loved it, put it on my repurchase list and have now in fact repurchased it. It is a fantastic serum. I’ve noticed more lines appearing due to both time and more time spent in the sun so it is time to call in the big guns. Yup, Hyaluronic acid. My skin responds really well to it and so I have added it back in. I love that one pump gives me enough product to cover my entire face. A second pump covers my neck and upper chest. Since I have finished up my latest bottle of the Dermelect Self-esteem Serum, I will be using this on both the face and neck. Both sections of skin need all the help they can get. The serum looks like clear water, but comes out as a gel like consistency and is less runny than a lot of serums. It also absorbs fairly quickly which also makes me happy. It is early days with this serum, but I have used it before and the last bottle worked fabulously, so I am happy to trust a second one will work just as well. Plus it is nice to actually order something from my reordering list.
In other skin care this week I am still using the Phat Glow Facial twice a week. The product is still fabulous but that pump is going to drive me bonkers. The lower the product level drops in the container the stiffer the pump is and the harder I have to work to get the product out. Has anyone else had this problem? I went looking on line but all I could find were raves about the product. Which admittedly, the product is quite fabulous. I just wonder if I got a faulty pump since no one else is mentioning it. So use is continuing, product fabulous, packaging needs work.
In addition this week I have an exfoliator I have added to the list of products. I know, there are chemical exfoliates in the Ole Henricksen, but this is a physical exfoliator. It is a gentle one. I don’t use a lot of physical exfoliators, but I do like using them on occasion. This one is gentle enough that I have no problem incorporating it into my routine. I love the brand Hey Honey. Their Good Morning Honey Silk Serum is one I fell in love with a long time ago. I actually have a backup in my skin care drawer waiting until I have cleared out a few of the products I haven’t tried before. As soon as I feel I’ve tried enough new, I will break it out. Actually I have quite a few sample sized moisturizers as well as masks from Hey Honey that I might rotate into use soon. But that is another story. I opened this Come Clean Exfoliating scrub because after the deep pore cleans from Go-to Skincare’s The Removalist Mask I wanted a physical exfoliator. I used it as an excuse to open this one.
And I am not sorry at all. It smells like fruit and nearly good enough to eat. Don’t worry, I won’t be eating it. Only a little bit of product is needed to get a fantastic clean and it feels wonderful on the skin. The package recommends applying it and then wetting the skin for a better clean. I found the formula just a little too stiff for me to enjoy that, so I wet my face first (just a little) and then applied the product worked it in and then added more water. The little bit of water on the damp skin really helps it to get going and then more water activates it more fully. Since it is now open, I will be using this once a week. Which trust me, isn’t a hardship. I could probably get away with using it more often, but with the Ole Henriksen mask working with chemical exfoliates, I think caution is in order. So The Phat Glow Facial is Tuesday and Thursday and the Hey Honey come Clean is a Saturday use product. I feel this gives me enough space between product usage so I am not over doing it, but still enough that the products do what they are supposed to do. And again, I am always happy to have Hey Honey back on my list of products in use.
Last month I completely spaced on doing a review of the empties in my bin so there is a lot to go through this month. Most of these items had full posts listed on my site so if you want more fulsome details I hope you check them out. This is just a rundown of the products I used up, along with a few notes about what I think of them now that they are gone.
Item number one is the Marc Jacobs Youthquake. I had high hopes for this one. It smelled nice and in general I like Marc Jacobs’ products. This however felt very heavy on the skin and was far too moisturizing for me to take.
I could use it as a night cream but not during the day. To use it up I ended up using it at night (and to be honest, also on my elbows which tend to get really dry in the winter). It was fine at night (and my elbows loved it) but it was too heavy during the day. I will not be repurchasing it. I will be reusing the very pretty jar somewhere though.
The PureHeals Pore Clear Black Charcoal peel off mask is also not going to make it to my repurchase list. While I like the mud masks that PureHeals makes (and will order those repeatedly) this mask was not for me. It never did anything for my skin that I could tell and it hurt to peel it off. If a peel off mask is going to hurt then I want to see some results. After all the Hey Honey Take off The Drama mask hurt like the dickens but my skin was fabulous afterwards. This just hurt and offered no return. I kept trying and it never got better. So it is good by to the empty and I will not be picking it up again.
Next up there is a trial size of the Sunday Riley A+ High Dose Retnoid Serum. I enjoyed using this very much and will be picking up a full sized bottle sometime in the near future to try out in my retinol trials. It was very nice and gone far too soon.
I will not miss the Marcelle CC Cream. I finished this small tube up last week and happily added it to the empties bin. While it is a wonderful color corrector, over the course of the day it seeped into the fine lines around my eyes and made me look super tired.
Plus, it lives up to the name Golden Glow and made my face very glowy, which is not my thing. And so this too will sadly not be repurchased. I was disappointed as every other Marcelle product I’ve tried has been top notch.
While I don’t normally have a problem with tangles, while using this shampoo and conditioner, I ended up having more tangle problems than usual. I also felt like my hair was slightly dull and getting some build up.
The first few washes were fantastic. But then it just went downhill fast. While I love the brand Dove and will continue to buy other products, this shampoo and conditioner set won’t be one I will repurchase.
I have to say, I am slightly on the fence about the feel renewed Pumpkin Walnut facial cleanser. I never actually thought I’d say that. Because this is not my first tube. It is the scent that always gets me, and if I’m honest, it is the reason I purchase it. I adore the scent and it was a good clean, but it was a rather rough exfoliate when it comes down to it. I believe I used it early in November, maybe even late October. The scent was suitable for the time frame and utterly delicious.
I have tried a couple of other exfoliating scrubs that perform better, even if they don’t smell as yummy. The Olay Regenerist scrub in particular smelled nice and clean and was a much gentler product on the skin. I think this may fall into the category of I’d use it if it ended up coming into my possession but I wouldn’t seek it out. It is a good exfoliator for once or twice a week, I just don’t think I would want to keep it stocked. I just need to find something better with the same scent.
I will be stocking the pixi skintreats Clarity Tonic though. It was a fantastic toner and I had wonderfully clear skin while using it. While I like other pixi toners, I have to say this one thus far is at the top of the list. This doesn’t mean I won’t try other Pixi products, but this one is a definite repurchase.
The Balance me and the Derma E products both worked well, enough but the scent of them both was not one I appreciated nor wanted to face every day. I find it kind of a shame as they were good products. However I know myself and the scents just meant that if I repurchased them in a full size I would slowly stop using them because I couldn’t take the scent.
The Derma E was floral and somewhat cloying while the Balance me smelled a bit like floor cleaner. I just know the product would go to waste if I purchased them. The Whish primer, however, was something altogether different.
The Whish botanical Primer was a failure as a primer. An Absolute Failure. It did nothing a primer really should be expected to do. It was however pretty good skin care. While this primer won’t be returning any time soon, it worked well enough as skin care that I am going to be looking into the other products from this Whish line that are specifically designed for skin care use. I will not use this as a primer. So it will not be returning, but some of its brand compatriots will. I can’t be upset about trying it though as it did bring Whish to my attention.
The Tatcha Deep Cleanse will hopefully soon make a return in a full size. I really enjoyed this cleanser. It was one of the few exfoliating cleansers that I have tried that I found I could use on a daily basis with no skin damage.
My skin looked and felt wonderful while using it and I really enjoyed the scent of the cleanser as well. It is lightly floral but with enough of a fruit back note to keep it from being cloying. I was somewhat surprised as I didn’t particularly care for Tatcha’s moisturizers when I tried them. However I can see why this cleanser is one of the brand’s best sellers. It is definitely something I want to repurchase.
There were four sample sized moisturizers in my bin this time around and I have to say all five of them made my list of products that I would want to reorder in a full sized version.
The Sunday Riley Ice moisturizer is not the most appealingly scented cream. It smells vaguely medicinal. However, it is a thick cream that disappears into the skin and hydrates well. I think as a night cream it would work well for me. It is also one of those products where the product worked well enough that I found I could live with the scent. As I am very scent oriented (in case you hadn’t guessed), that is saying something.
The second sample was the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I enjoyed it as there are very few products from Elemis that I don’t enjoy. This sample came to me through a Look Fantastic Box and I was happy to get the chance to try it before adding a full size to my try out list.
Surprisingly the fourth is the 111Skin Y Theorem Day Cream. With 111 Skin I am sometimes on the fence with them I like a lot of their products but there are few I fall in love with. Especially after seeing the price. They usually strike me as good, but not quite good enough to justify the price. I don’t mind paying more for a product I think is worth the price. Especially where skincare is concerned.
This is one moisturizer I could easily see myself falling in love with. It claims to be a day cream and that is exactly what it is. I really like a product that stakes a claim on one thing and does it well. I liked it enough that when I looked at the price of the full size I actually found myself thinking it sounded like it was priced correctly.
That was how much I enjoyed the sample. I was very sad when the sample ran out and you can bet that anytime I see a sample of this up for grabs I will be snapping it up. This is one of the few things from 111 Skin that I believe actually earns its price tag.
Another product that earns it’s price, although it is substantially lower in price is the Timeless SkinCare Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I believe a full sized bottle is around $9.95, but trust me, this serum is something I would actually pay twice that for, maybe even three times. During my use of it, I actually saw a reduction in the Great Stress Crack of Mimsy, which is what I call the ever deepening line across my forehead.
While using this, it not only didn’t deepen, but it appeared to be getting shallower. I was sad when it ran out. I have two hyaluronic acid serums to test out from other brands and now that I’ve had a few weeks without this serum, I am going to start a trial of the next sot see how it performs. But right now, Timeless SkinCare has set the standard and it is a pretty high mark to reach. Regardless of future trials, this was an excellent serum offered at an excellent price and it is one that I foresee making several repeated trips to my skin care shelf.
A few products that won’t return? The Sulwhasoo first care Activating serum. Its herbal scent I could get used to if it was an amazing product, but it left my skin sticky and not feeling improved. The Goldfaden, MD Needle-less line corrector will not be returning either. It felt like it was stinging, but beyond the stinging it didn’t do much. In general Goldfaden, MD and I have not had the best history. I have a serum to try from the brand, but thus far everything I have used from the brand has left me saying ‘Thanks, but no thanks. ‘
Sadly the Pa’akai cleansing cream also falls into that category. It cleanses well enough, but the scent is just far too perfume-y for me to take on a twice daily basis. Incidentally, I did use the product up, but there was just enough remaining to coat the back of the bottle where it lay in the empties bin so it looks full. It fooled me too but I opened it and looked inside thinking I might not have finished it out. But oh yeah, it is empty and the perfume scented remains remind me why I am not using it.
I found myself trying to avoid washing my face while using it, and that is not a good thing. There are many steps I could probably skip in a skin care routine should I want to pair it down. Washing my face isn’t one of them. So, it is a good cleanser, but sadly the scent just made it not for me.
Also not for me is the Tarte Shape tape Concealer. It works well as a spot concealer, blending beautifully into my skin and hiding red spots and blemishes. But it settled into the fine lines under my eyes and just made me look haggard. Which is not what I want in a concealer. So I used the last of this little sample size up as a spot corrector. And now it is empty and will not be repurchased. Sadly I used to love the Shape Tape Concealer. I think that as I get a little older, my skin’s needs just change. I have changed not the product. If fine lines aren’t a problem for you then you will still love it. (if you like it now). This was an excellent concealer for me once upon a time, but no more.
I do have a second concealer in my empties bin this go around and it is the Fast Base Concealer from Revolution. I love this concealer, never had any problems with it settling in my fine lines and will be repurchasing it very soon.
The fact that is it a $3 concealer, if I remember correctly, doesn’t hurt the wallet either. I don’t mind paying a lot for products that work, but good products come in all sorts of price ranges, and this one certainly proves it. The Fast Base will be repurchased.
There are two empty mascaras in my empties bin. One is the Mile High Lashes from Wander Beauty and the other is a sample sized tube of They’re Real from Benefit Cosmetics. While each performed well, to be honest, neither are the products I prefer from the brands. With Wander Beauty I would purchase the Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara before I would purchase the Mile High Club mascara. With Benefit, I would purchase Bad Gal Bang before I would pick up They’re Real. That isn’t to say that they are not both quality products, but I doubt I would purchase either of them specifically. If going onto their brand pages, other products would draw my attention. So I did like them, and wouldn’t mind using them again, I just know that if shopping, they aren’t the ones I would repurchase.
Also not making my repurchase list was the First Aid Beauty Primer. It is a mattifying yet hydrating primer but my skin isn’t dry enough for the product. If I had skin that was a great deal drier, this would be a different conversation. But alas I don’t. So the First Aid Beauty primer I would not repurchase. If you have really dry skin and are looking for a mattifying primer, you might have better luck than I did with this product.
One primer I will consistently repurchase is the Yensa tone up primer. This is either the second or third tube of this that I have gone through and I absolutely adore it. It mattifies and fills pores really well and my skin reacts really well to it. It makes my top ten favorites list. In fact everything I’ve tried form the Super 8 line from Yensa has been really good in general. I’m actually finishing out a BB cream sample size from the brand this week that I know I am going to have to order in a full size once I’ve whittled down my foundation products.
The Hey Honey Trick and Treat CC cream is also on my reorder list. It fairly melted into the skin and left me with a beautiful no makeup look that worked really well for daily wear. I adored the formula and will be purchasing a full size in the future.
As far as Hey Honey goes I will also be reordering the Show Your Glow Colloidal Gold and Honey Beauty Mask. I really like how soft and lovely it made my skin feel. The fact that I wandered around the house for fifteen minutes looking like I’d been gilded by a wandering art restorer was kind of fun as well. But the mask was fabulous.
I also want to order a full sized version of the Georgette Klinger Collagen and Elastin Mask (pictured above with Derma E). The sample I tried worked really well on my skin and it is one I would not mind keeping a full size of around. It plumped up my skin and diminished my fine lines after one use. The tube had enough for three uses and I was happy to use it for an entire week of masking. I was however very sad when it was empty. So to the repurchase in a full size list the product goes.
As much as I like Native Deodorant, I have to say the sample size of the holiday scent Sugar Cookie was enough for me. The sample size lasted a little over a month and quite frankly as much as I liked it, I was happy to end the trial. I am still using my Native Deodorant, but it is the Cucumber and Mint.
Like the holidays, it was nice while it lasted, but I was happy to resume the standard once it was done. I could not have taken a full size of this. I am still upset I didn’t pick up the fill size of the Candy Cane Scent, but they didn’t have it at Target (apparently it sold out extremely fast) and I didn’t get around to ordering it in time. That one I probably could have used longer than the Sugar Cookie. Mostly because I adore peppermint.
I still don’t know why spearmint (an inferior to peppermint in my opinion) gets to live on throughout the year, but peppermint, fabulous peppermint is banished to the holidays. Because of this I stock pile products and end up using products decorated for Christmas in June. It isn’t right. Do you know how many bars of Dr. Squatch’s Peppermint soap I have squirrelled away in my linen closet? I don’t either and I’m not counting because it would make me feel bad, but I do now have an absolutely deliciously scented linen closet. But that isn’t the point so I will end my pro-peppermint rant and get back to the empties.
I know this is a behemoth of a post, but there are only two more items and then, my darlings, we are through. The Color Strike Shadow from Maybelline was really hard to work with and had the added effect of not staying long on the lid once I got it to work. While I generally like Maybelline Products, this was not my favorite. I am getting rid of it because trying to make it work nearly drove me bonkers. I’m sure there is product remaining in the tube, but it was so hard to ge out onto the little brush that I couldn’t prove it. It will not be repurchased. I’ll still use Maybelline products, just not this particular product.
And to end on a good note. The wet ‘n wild liquid megaliner eyeliner. It reminded me of how much I really liked liquid eyeliners. It performed magnificently and I was so sad when the product reached the end of its productive life. It went on smoothly and after letting it dry a moment, it stayed put all day without fading. (If you don’t give it a moment to dry it will transfer when you blink because it is a wet liquid. So just give it a second and you are good).
I will repurchase this product and I will continue repurchasing this product. I will also be picking up more liquid eyeliners from different brands in the future. As a side note, the wet ‘n wild liquid eyeliner was the very first eyeliner I learned to apply way back in Junior High. I loved it then and I find it amusing all these years later to find that it is still a great product. So many of the products i used to absolutely adore when I I was first introduced to makeup have either sadly gone away or are kind of amusing to look back on. I find it fun to find one product that still works as good as I thought it did when I first started with makeup.
And with that my darlings we are finally through with two months’ worth of empties. If nothing else this reminds me that I need to remember to do these once a month or suffer the wrath of an overflowing bin and an extraordinarily long post. I nearly forgot about some of the items towards the bottom.
If you stuck with me, thanks for making it to the very end. If you didn’t’, don’t worry, it was a really long haul and I almost gave up midway through myself. I will see you at the end of January with next month’s empties in a much more manageable sized post. I have put it on my nice new calendar so that I will not forget it. I will also be back this afternoon with a perfume review as well, but I am definitely remembering the empties bin each month instead of letting it carry over.
