January 2013 Empties!

This month I was able to finish up a lot of products.. it feels so liberating! :)

Let's hop right in! :)

 First up, the Glysomed Hand Cream - really great during these dry and frigid winter months. I already had a back-up, which I just started using this morning!

The Crest 3D White line is my favorite for teeth care. When using the Vivid toothpaste in conjunction with the Multi-Care Whitening Oral Rinse, I always achieve a whiter smile by a couple of shades :)

I had a sample of Chanel's Gentle Biphase Eye Makeup Remover. It was super nice and non-irritating. Unfortunately because of the heave price tag, I won't be repurchasing.

I also finished up a perfume sample of Coach Poppy. I know a lot of ladies love this one, but I really didn't find it smelled that great.

If you have read my post on Witch Hazel (linked HERE), you already know that I absolutely love to use it as a toner. I have a second toner from the drugstore to empty, so as soon as I am done with it, I will go buy the Rougier Distilled Witch Hazel again.

Now, Avon's Clearskin Blemish Clearing Acne Body Wash took me forever to empty. It didn't do anything for me but I forced myself to use it to the very last drop. Glad I can finally toss it in the recycle bin!

Softsoap Shea Butter Body Moisturizing Wash is simply divine. Smells amazing, and does its job! :)

I was sad when I realized that my Sally Hansen Hard as Nails French White Tip had dried up. I used most of it, as it's a great product for french manicures as it has a fine brush that is really easy to control. I bought it as part of Sally Hansen's manicure set. It actually lasted me 3 years!

Covergirl Lash Blast is the best mascara I've tried so far. I am still on the hunt for an even better one, so I will venture out this time and try something different.

If you are looking for an amazing hair oil, Organix Renewing Morrocan Argan Deep Penetrating Oil is definitely a must have! I dedicated a whole blog post to it which you can read HERE!

Last but not least, the L'oreal True Match Powder. I actually ended up spraying too much isopropyl alcohol on my brush since I used it a spot cleaner and it ended up hardening all of the product :S. This was my second repurchase, but now that I've found a better loose powder by Marcelle (read more on it HERE), I will not be repurchasing.

PHEW! That was a big batch of products to talk about right there! Let me know in the comments below if you've tried any of these! :)
