It's been almost a month since my last post of finished products, and I have quite a few that have collected again. Here's the whole pile:
Breakdown of the products:
Johnson's Kids No More Tangles - I bought this over the summer when my hair decided that it didn't want to cooperate with my combing it out. If I got desperate again, I would pick this up.
SoftSoeap Ultra Rich Shea Butter Creme - I had another bottle in this post last month. It isn't anything special. I don't plan on repurchasing.
RenPure Organics Deep Penetrating Reconstructor - This is a deep conditioner that I got a really good deal on a while ago. They were BOGO Free, and one of them had a mail-in form to try it free, so I got two bottles for $0! This was a nice, rich conditioner. I also love that it is (according to the bottle) "made with 100% certifiied organice extracts and safe, fresh natural ingredients" and doesn't contain sulfates, parabens, colors, ot dyes. I would probably pick this up again, but I'm not sure if I can get it where I live now.
Organix Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy Flat Iron Spray - This really helped get my hair stick straight, but it also made my hair feel like straw. I prefer the got2b Guardian Angel Flat Iron Balm.
CVS Make-Up Remover Cleansing Cloth Towelettes - I use these types of cleansing cloths for two things. The first one is removing makeup from my arm/hand that I've been swatching. The other one is removing makeup on my face before putting on a face mask. I use face masks before I shower so I know I can get all of it off, and I always wash my face with my regular cleanser after. That being said, I don't worry too much about these being able to remove every trace of makeup. I buy what I can get a good deal on.
Bath & Body Works Body Butter in Midnight Pomegranate - I bought this to mix with my AHA toner from SN in order to use it on my legs. I get ingrown hairs all time time, and it is really frustrating. I have two more tubs of B&BW body butter (another Midnight Pomegranate and a Country Chic). My collection of lotions is pretty large, so I'm trying not to buy any more for the time being.
Burt's Bees Beeswax & Banana Hand Creme - This is another jar from the value sets that I got on clearance. Like the other hand cream that I used up, the texture seemed to have gone off a little bit. The banana scent was really strong. I prefer the scent of the other one better.
Cosmedicine Healthy Cleanse for Oily Skin - Like the other Cosmedicine cleanser that I had in my last finished products post, this was on clearance at Walgreens. It wasn't bad. It didn't take off heavy-duty eye makeup though.
Bodycology Brown Sugar Vanilla Body Cream - This wasn't a bad lotion, but there wasn't anything special about it. I have a bunch of other small bottles of lotion that I can throw in my purse. I don't feel the need to seek this out again.
Philosophy Hope Oil-Free SPF 30 - I had a small tube of this once before, and I liked it a lot better the first time. I prefer the Sheseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion that I used up before I started my blog, so if I buy a full-sized, high-end moisturizer, I would probably go with that one.
Smashbox Photo Finish UVA/UVB SPF 15 Primer - This wasn't a bad primer, but I don't feel the need to run out and repurchase it either. I still have several other minis and full-sizes to use up.
Beckham Signature perfume sample - I am awful at distinguishing notes in a perfume, so I'm not going to try. This is a sweet perfume, and I love sweet scents, so I enjoyed using this. I don't feel the need to go out and purchase a larger size of this.
Tarte Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder - Technically, this powder still exists. However, the entire jar got mixed in with two regular-sized jars of Meow's Flawless Feline foundation, some silk powder, and some silica. Since the original jar is empty, and I will forget to record it when I finish off my mixture of powders, I'm counting this now (I guess I could count the Meow foundations too, but I didn't take pictures of them).
LaVanila The Healthy Sunscreen - I liked this. I would consider it another contender for a high-end moisturizer.
Silk Naturals Pina Colada lip balm - I like the lip balms by Silk Naturals, but I'm not a huge fan of pina colada scents. I don't hate them, but I don't love them either. I will gladly purchase more Silk Naturals lip balms in the future, but I won't get this particular scent again unless it comes as part of a set.
AmLactin body lotion samples (3) - The third one is not pictured because I finished it after I took the pictures. These were freebies in the mail. I like that this lotion has AHA in it, and I have used up a full-sized bottle before. I wish it had a better scent though.
Essence of Beauty body wash samples (2) - I got these in Sunblossom and Citrus Coconut. The lather didn't last very long, so I don't plan on purchasing a full size of these or any other scent in the line.
Keratin Perfect shampoo and conditioner samples - These felt nice when applied. I vaguely remember the conditioner not detangling as well as I expected (it has been a while since I used these), and I stick to my Nature's Gate Tea Tree shampoo in order to keep my scalp from flaking, so I won't be purchasing either of these.
Aromaleigh Rocks! Glam Glitter in Shakeitup and Meow's ROFL eye shadow samples - These went into a Franken polish that I made because they were pretty, but I wouldn't wear them on my eyes.
Silk Naturals eye shadow samples in Stag, Saddle Up, Bareback, and Loaded - I had a friend send me mini samples of all of the Naked palette dupes done by Silk Naturals. These were all nice, but I have the Naked palette, so I'm not going to purchase the Silk Naturals versions.
Meow Sunsplasher! in Light Siamese sample - I really liked this. Because it is designed with my skin tone and depth in mind, it was really easy to use. I can see purchasing a full size of this and/or Meow's Skinny Dipper at some point.
Not pictured: I also got to the final dregs of a jumbo size of my Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese. I put the last little bit in the mix that I mentioned above. I already have another jumbo sized foundation purchased.
Now that this post is done, I can drop all of these items in a garbage bag and start collecting again! Yippee!
