Nobody likes trash more than me! So send me your empties pics and reviews for posting!! mailboxjunkie808 at gmail dot com
I cleaned out a bunch of makeup/skincare and so this is an empties/declutter post. I am tossing old stuff as well as products that don’t work well or have yucky stuff in them.
1st up: Empties!
With a name like euphoric Ylang Ylang there is no telling what could happen. I love bath salts and so this was an easy sell. Scent is light on the ylang ylang which I appreciated.
However, I sort of expected a euphoric vision or transportation to another dimension with a name like euphoric ylang ylang but it didn’t happen
Caudalie Instand Detox Mask
Box: Pnut Special
This mask dries and causes your skin to tighten. Of all the mask I have done lately, this one worked really well. It is a little hard to remove though. You will find yourself a day later with residue still under your chin wondering…. where did that come from.
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream
This was a tiny sample. It is very dense and a little goes a long way. Despite being dense, it is not greasy. I can see this being really great for people with eczema. I won’t re-buy though because it contains parabens. But if you are interested they do address this issue of parabens on their website. If I lived in a cold weather climate I might seriously consider using this product.
Ally if you are reading, I think this stuff is for you!!!
Box: Pnut Special
I love this stuff hands down. It is a favorite of mine. I banned non-physical sunscreen from my life a long time ago so I have tried this stuff many times. Highly recommend! It is pretty amazing in all that it does and it still manages to be non-greasy!
Red Flower Wanderlust towelette
Box: Good Being or Goodebox
I pretty much think this stuff/scent smells like heaven. Probably because it contains the most elegant smelling weed ever called Vetiver! I swear some kid was sent out to clean up the yard and pulled it up and was like huh, this stuff smells really good! Anyway a pack of 7 is $5 so they are a great deal!
Mrs Meyers Clean Day:
68 loads down! I really like most of this product line. This stuff works well and is free of yucky stuff
This bottle has lasted me 3 years…………….
2nd up: TRASH BIN!
Ofra Eye Gel Primer:
Box: Little Lace Box
Meh, this stuff doesn’t work very well IMO! It is very thin. It also contains triethanolamine which ranks a 5 on the ewg.com/skin deep. So long Charlie!
Pacifica Powerful Color Lipstick
This came in my January Ipsy. I wanted to love it for so many reasons but it literally feels like rubbing chalk on your lips. It is supposed to ‘amazingly creamy’ but I don’t know if my sample is bad or what but I can barely get it on my lips because it is so dry.
This expired in 2011!!! And that’s all I’m going to say about that………….
Make Skin Illuminator
I actually have 2 of this sample. So both are heading to the land of no return because of this:
No matter how I apply this stuff it just looks like plain glitter…………………… Am I missing something? When did wearing glitter come back into fashion for grown women? Am I applying it wrong?
Does anyone love this stuff because I have 2 samples of it and will send it your way! I mean this stuff isn’t cheap! I have like $40 worth of it.
I used to love this stuff but started to feel like it always made my face look ashy. But for some reason I kept it around….. for like 4 years………….Please don’t call hoarders on me!
Another item I have had for many years now….. I think this perfume is responsible for me disliking things heavy on the Ylang Ylang… It channels Ylang Ylang to the infinite power!
Lisa Hoffman Vitamin A and C Serum:
Box: Derm Stores beauty box from 2011
This has like one pump left in it…. I have had it for about 3 years now with only that one pump left…… It is also like straight Retinol Palmitate so it gets the boot.
Thanks for getting trashed with me, until next week!
