Finished It!!! Volume 8

It's time for another round of showing off my trash. I'm excited about this one because I have a few items from my list of products I want to finish that I get to include (those products will be labeled with a star).

Let's get started:


The Body Shop Love Etc... Body Wash - I wasn't in love with the scent of this, and the lather seemed to disappear pretty quickly. I won't be rebuying.

Bath & Body Works Berry Vanilla Body Wash - I loved the scent and the lather is fantastic. I have several bottles of Bath & Body Works body wash left in my stash. I don't think I can get this scent again, but I will probably end up buying more of this product in the future.

The Body Show Satsuma Body Wash - This body wash smells amazing! The lather didn't last as long as I would like, and it didn't always do a good job of helping my razor glide along my legs (I don't use shaving creams). I probably won't repurchase.

Yardley London Vanilla Sugar Soap - I wanted to love this, but I'm just not a fan of bar soaps. Sadly, I have a couple more of these left to use or get rid of in some way.

 Bath & Body Works Cherry Blossom Lotion - This isn't the most moisturizing lotion formula, but it isn't bad. This is one of my favorite scents, and my fiance really likes it too.

Scentsations Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion - I got this at Kohl's a long time ago with a coupon. It is really watery and not very moisturizing. I won't be repurchasing from this brand.

Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion - While I like the idea of shimmery body lotions in theory, I hate them in practice. The shimmer gets everywhere and sticks on my hands much longer than I'd like after applying it. I won't be picking this up again.


Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion - This was a freebie from some Ulta order. It was okay, but it wasn't anything special. I don't plan on picking this up again.

Silk Naturals Kiss Cleanser - This is a holy grail product for me. It's a great, simple face wash. Silk Naturals suggest putting it in a foamer bottle that they sell and diluting it with a 70:30 ratio of water to cleanser, so one bottle lasts a long time. I already had a backup, and I will continue to repurchase it in the future.

Neutrogena Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment - I've used this for a long time, and it works well for me. I still have a couple of tubes of this in my stash.

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream - I like that this eye cream has retinol in it, but it wasn't quite moisturizing enough. I don't plan on repurchasing it.


Tarte Clean Slate Primer - This is the old formula and/or packaging. I liked it. I've got several other primers to use up and at least one other one that I want to try, but I might eventually repurchase this.

Lumene Double Stay Long-Lasting Makeup in Vanilla Meringue* - One of the major positives of this foundation is that it matches my skin. Unfortunately, it isn't easy to get here in the US. I ordered it off ebay when I bought it. I've got other foundations that are easier to get that match me, so I don't plan on getting this again.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment - This was a freebie from Sephora. I was glad I got to try it, but it didn't seem overly moisturizing to me, and it was so soft that I had to depot it into a jar before I was even halfway through it. A full size is also really expensive. I won't be purchasing a full size.

Darling Girl Raspberry Mist Lip Balm - I really like Susan's lip balms. I love that she has so many flavor options. I've gone through several, and I will probably buy more in the future.

Yankee Candle Pomegranate Fruit Lip Balm* - I liked this balm well enough. I think the packaging is really cute since it looks like a mini candle, but it's also too bulky for someone who likes to keep her balm in her pants pocket. These aren't easy to find, so I probably won't pick this up again.

Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in Naked* - This was the mini that came with the Naked 2 palette. I really liked the color. I wasn't a huge fan of the consistency because it was a little too sticky. I won't buy a full size.



Perfume Samples in Marc Jacobs Daisy, Betsy Johnson Too Too pretty, and DKNY Pure - I already have a mini of the DKNY Pure. I don't plan on purchasing Daisy or Too Too Pretty (BTW: those two stopped spraying, so even though there is still perfume left, I can't get to it).


 Lots of Random Samples - I didn't love any of these. The only one really worth noting is the Silk Naturals Colt Eye Shadow Sample*. It's a nice color that is a dupe for Urban Decay's Darkhorse. Since I already have two full-size pans of Darkhorse, I feel no need to purchase the dupe.


Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse - This left my hair feeling too crispy. I'm glad to see it gone. I won't pick it up again.

Those are my empties! Have you finished up anything lately?

    1. Good luck with your glittery lotion. I've got another mini lotion with glitter that I plan on trying to use up soon, but I haven't worked up the motivation for it yet. I look enough like a Cullen without adding the extra shimmer everywhere. LOL
