Products I Finished This Month - October 2014

Hello readers,

Another month gone by means another pile of empties.  Lots of stuff to go through this month so let's get started.


I finished up lots of face products this month.  The first was L'oreal Go Clean 360 Deep Facial Cleanser.  I really liked this face wash.  It was gentle on my skin and seemed to help keep occasional breakouts under control.  What I really love was that it came with a little silicone 'scrublet' which I can keep on using even after the bottle is done.  I would buy this again.  I also finished a jar of Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst relief moisturizer.  This has become my go to daytime facial moisturizer.  It's really hydrating but doesn't leave my skin shiny.  I've already purchased a replacement.  Finally I finished up a tube of Clinique Acne Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask.  This mask was... alright.  I think I prefer The Body Shop's Tea Tree clay mask though.  It's also cheaper so I'll likely not purchase the Clinique one in the future.


This month I finished up another small bottle of Emerald&Ash cuticle oil.  This was one of the bottles I received for review a few months back.  I really like these cuticle oils and have already purchased a big 10ml bottle to keep me going.  E&A also released a bunch of new scent combos recently and I may need to stock up on some of the new ones as well.

Bath & Body

You're probably used to seeing the Bath Retreat energizing epsom salts in my empties by now.  I love them.  They smell delicious.  There are already two more bags in my bathroom.  I also finished a couple products I received in a Sweet Delights Divalicious sample box.  The first was a Champagne Shower Gel from Kootenay Bath Products.  It smelled really yummy but the gel was quite thick and difficult to get out of the bottle.  For that reason I won't be purchasing it in full size.  I also finished an Egyptian Jasmine goat milk bar soap from Polka Goat Farm.  I used this as shaving lather and it did lather up quite nicely. The scent was subtle but nice.  Overall I'm just not a bar soap kind of person so I won't be purchasing this again.  Finally I finished a Hand And Cuticle Stick from Julep.  The reason I have this in the "bath & body" section is that I actually used this on my feet.  I found that the thicker formula did a better job of sticking to and penetrating the skin on the soles of my feet.  I was really pleased with how much softer they were after prolonged use.  I do find this item overpriced though (as I find with pretty much all of Julep's products).  However, if it goes on sale for a decent price I would definitely consider purchasing another.


Last up is hair products.  I finished a lot of Herbal Essences Naked Shampoo and Conditioner this month.  This stuff smells delicious, keeps my hair moisturized but not greasy and is paraben and colorant free.  It has become a staple in my house.  I also finished a bottle of Pantene Curl Protection conditioner.  I find that if I use curly hair products too often they end up building up in my hair.  A bottle tossed into the mix every so often is ok.  I would probably buy a different Pantene variant in the future though.  Last up is a bottle of Herbal Essences Set Me Up hairspray.  I use this stuff pretty much every day to tame frizzies.  I'm using the Naked version of the hairspray right now, but sometimes I have a hard time finding it.  This one is the back up for when that happens.

Happy polishing,

- Michelle
