Hi guys! Yep! It’s that time again. As I’ve been going through a lot of my beauty products lately, I’ve decided to go on a no buy. This means I’ll be using up the zillions of products I already have. And trust me, there’s a ton! Here’s what I’ve used up since the last Beauty Trash post:
Philip B Icelandic Blonde Deep Conditioner: this was awesome! I used it right after my last bleaching. The grape seed and plum make it smell amazing too! It’s on the pricier side, but the ingredients are on a whole other level than the drug store stuff.
Murad Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence: this is very light weight. Almost like a serum like texture. Very nice if you’ve got oily skin like me.
Inglot YSM Cream Foundation in 43: this one actually made me sad. I love this foundation. Especially for going out, or when I need a little extra coverage.
Dr. Bronner’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: basically I use coconut as a makeup remover. It breaks down absolutely everything.
Younique Mineral Touch Liquid Foundation in Satin: This is really good coverage. Worth is if you have a need for full coverage.
Smack Beauty Detox to Relax Charcoal Detoxifying Face Mask: I loved this. It defined my skin without drying it out. Which is a hard balance to find.
Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream: this summer I’ve been really trying to keep my hair away from heated styling tools. So I’ve been scrunching this into my hair and learning to love my natural texture, or raking it through before throwing in some braids.
LuLuLun 7 Days Sheet Masks: nice. Just kind of overall moisturizing. Didn’t notice much of a huge difference in my skin.
Swan Nail Polish Remover: well, this one should be self explanatory.
COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch: un-be-liev-able! These are ah-mazing!!! Run out and get some! Right now!
Keratin Complex Keratin Replenisher: I cannot even begin to explain how soft and healthy this makes my hair feel. It may be one if the best products I’ve ever used.
Avatara Shape Up Face Mask: this felt nice on. Can’t say I noticed any improvement in the elasticity of my skin though.
Karuna Hydrating+ Face Mask: this did absolutely leave my skin feeling refreshed and even hydrated, without leaving it oily or greasy. I loved it.
Karuna Renewal+ Eye Mask: this is the highest selling item made by Karuna. Maybe I just don’t get it. I’ve used other under eye patches that I liked much better.
Free Your Mane Daily Detangling Conditioner: I grabbed this when I found it on sale just to use to dilute hair dye. But I really did enjoy the smell.
L’Oréal 30 Volume Oreor Creme Developer: obviously this is to dye and/or bleach my hair. I’m not sure why this is the brand I gravitated to when I got serious and began doing my own hair, but this is pretty much all I use.
Jane Carter Solution Curls to Go Shine On Curl Elixir: ehhhh. Not really sure I saw any added shine when using this. I did get annoyed because I had to learn to use it closer to wash day, as it tended to leave my hair feeling more oily than shiny. On the plus side, it did smell good.
Dream Water + Beauty 0-Calorie Beauty Sleep Shot: I’ve talked about these before, but for anyone that’s new, these work for sleep. At $4 a bottle though, and the fact that you need to use them every night for at least a week to see the other benefits, I’m just not sure it’s worth it.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum: now, I’ll admit, I use a lot of skincare. And I rotate between products a ton. But I’m really not sure I saw a difference in the radiance if my skin when using it. It did feel soothing when applying, though.
Wella Color Charm Permanent Liquid Hair Toner in T18: I mix this box with the next product to tone my hair after bleaching.
Wella Color Charm Permanent Liquid Hair Toner in T14: like I said. I mix this with T18 when toning my hair after bleaching. The combo gives me the color I’m looking for.
China Glaze Nail Lacquer with Hardeners in Point Me to the Party: I adore this nail polish! Super sad to discovered it had started drying up and getting clumpy.
Jane Carter Solution Curls to Go Mist Me Over Curl Hydrator: I used this to refresh my waves the next day. Getting some moisture and definition in the without having to start all over with wet hair.
The Mane Choice Manetabolism Plus Healthy Hair Vitamins: usually I use Hairfinity, bit I wanted to give these a try. I don’t think they worked quite as well, but they did work okay.
Ricky’s NYC Rickycare Disposable Mascara Wands: I apply my homemade lash oil with these, so they are a must! Although, I guess most any brand would do.
Smack Beauty Full Speed Ahead Quick Lift Serum with Retinol: I liked this. Didn’t overly dry out my skin, like a lot of retinol formulas do. Because this girl does go overboard on the retinol products sometimes.
Thayers Witch Hazel Aloe Vera Formula Alcohol-Free Cucumber Toner: this is my toner of choice these days. Keeps my pH balanced without drying my skin out.
Diane by Fromm Powder-Free Vinyl Gloves: just for coloring and bleaching my hair. These don’t rip easily. I like them.
Jean Pierre Cucumber Makeup Remover Wipes: these have been my go to wipes for a little while. I’m not a huge fan of wipes. I’m way too into my skincare routine to just do a wipe and be done. But I like these for just a quick cleanup when I’m not wearing makeup or in the morning when I’m in a rush to get the kiddo to school. I always follow it up later with something else though.
bare Minerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion: this was just a mess. Not my favorite. At all.
Anyway, that’s all for now! What did you love that you used up recently?
