Products I’ve used up pt 3

Hey everyone this is another go through my beauty trash but this one has a twist. I’ve added two food items, a fragrance, and three beauty tools this time. I’m trying to go through some of my products because its kinda getting to be a bit much lol. Plus running out of things allow you to buy more right?? I thought so lol. So here is my beauty+ trash.

An Abundance of used up goodness!!!

Ps If you haven’t seen my other used beauty items posts check out my page 🙂 With this post I will be going in the order I use them. At least that’s the initial plan. Lord bare with my rambling mind.

BEAUTY PRODUCTS:

Equate oil free daily face wash
Equate oil free daily face wash

This is my usual suspect. I continuously purchase this cleanser. I love that it has salicylic acid in it which my oily acne prone skin loves. And it keeps my skin clear. For an extra exfoliate I will put this on a face poof and scrub my face.

Biore Blemish fighting ice cleanser

I purchased this cleanser on a whim at walgreens cause I needed a cleanser, I already went over my weekly budget, and it was on sale. This was a really good cleanser. Leave the skin soft and cool feeling effect. Like I walked outside in the fall with a wet face (but in a good way?). This cleanser also has salicylic acid in it which is awesome. The only flaw about this one is that where there is a cooling effect, it can sometimes burn the eyes even if it isn’t close to your eyes.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (sample size)
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (sample size)

This is a good serum to add to your nighttime routine. it keeps my skin feeling smooth. I have a few of these samples and samples are golden.

Lancome Visionnaire serum
Lancome Visionnaire serum

This is my second favorite serum (my #1 serum is Lancome Dreamtone). This serum evens out this skintone and smooths your skin texture. It is also an anti wrinkle treatment which I love because I’m no spring chicken. This one is the newer version of this serum so you see results faster. LOVE

Serious C Serum
Serious C Serum

This is a vitamin C serum from serious skincare. I use this at night before I got the samples of the Advanced night repair. This is an amazing skin conditioner!! It really brightened up my skin and helped diminish my acne blemishes.

Maya Overseas foods inc. Rose Water
Maya Overseas foods inc. Rose Water

this is an amazing natural toner for before your moisturizer and to set your face after your makeup. And I’m one of the few people who love the smell of rose water because it is strong. There are only two ingredients in this product: water and rose petal extract. Sign me up. I got this from my local middle eastern grocery store and was only $1.99 which is a steal.

Lancome High Resolution Night Cream ( Deluxe sample)
Lancome High Resolution Night Cream (Deluxe sample)

This is one of my favorite night creams. It has anti wrinkle and renewing skin properties. And I love the smell.

Mary Kay oil mattifyer
Mary Kay oil mattifier

This is really good for my T-Zone area to keep from getting super shiny throughout the day. This one doesn’t last as long as my new holy grail mattifier but this was is still really good.

ELF mineral face primer
ELF mineral face primer

This is a favorite primer for me and my clients when I freelance. It’s only $6 and it is a very nice product. This is the original one, they also have different colors for different skin solutions which I haven’t used. I will be repurchasing once I get through these other primers :/

Mary Kay medium coverage foundation in beige 404
Mary Kay medium coverage foundation in beige 404

This is a tricky but nice foundation. It is best used with a beauty blender to get a great finish. I found that a brush makes it streaky and it transfers onto your clothes. it’s a really nice everyday foundation and great for sensitive skin.

Sephora correcter/concealer pen
Sephora correcter/concealer pen

This is a duel ended concealer stick. One side is small for precision and the other more like a concealer crayon. The only thing I don’t like about this product is that it dries my under eye a bit. It’s really good for spot conceal but not good for under eye brightening.

ELF concealer in beige
ELF concealer in beige

This is my holy grail concealer for brightening my under eye!!!! It is creamy, blendable, and inexpensive. I just opened a new one and I have three backups. I refuse to run out. This is my first choice for clients as well because it doesn’t crease. Definitely a must try.

ELF all over stick in Apricot Beige
ELF all over stick in Apricot Beige

I love this for an intense under eye highlight. Very creamy but I can’t find in anywhere. #sadpanda

Top: Elizabeth Arden beautiful color eyebrow pencil in 03 brownette
bottom: Lancome Les Souricils Benfinis Brow Expert in 105 brown

These two are the best brow pencils I have found. They last all day without smearing, they glide smoothly, and doesn’t tug on the skin. I use the Lancome at the front of my brow because it is a lighter color and the Arden for my brow tail and they are the perfect combo. I have already repurchased both of them. Amazing!!!! I haven’t tried the ABH brow wiz but with these two, I haven’t wanted to. oops #sorrynotsorry

Laura Geller Blush -N- Brighten in tropic hues
Laura Geller Blush -N- Brighten in tropic hues

This is the perfect spring/ summer blush. Just a slight shimmer to give the skin that healthy glow. It is also amazing in the fall on top of a bronzer on the cheeks. It’s a baked blush so it took me FOREVER to get through it. My thought was “yay I finally finished it, now i can get a different color!” So I trotted out to Ulta Picked up two Laura Geller blushes and a highlight duo (cause the girl knows how to do a baked blush and highlight) I get home and look at the colors of the blushes and what do you know, I picked up another tropic hue!! But I’m not even sorry cause I enjoyed it the entire time and couldn’t put it down. My soul knows what I need!!!!

April Cold Cream Cleanser
April Cold Cream Cleanser

Last but not least of beauty products is what I use to take off my eye makeup. Now before I swore by the Ponds cold cream cleanser, and I still do, but I found this one at the dollar tree and decided to try it out. it was only $1 and it is amazing and you get more product than the Ponds and for a fraction of the price. You know ya girl love a deal!!!! It doesn’t burn my eyes and it leaves my eye area soft and moisturized. Cause the first things that show your age is your neck, hands, and underwear, so ladies keep it right and tight!!!!

BEAUTY TOOLS!!!

Dove skin revitalized facial cleansing massager
Dove skin revitalized facial cleansing massager

This was the most amazing face cleansing tool I have ever used. It vibrates encouraging skin cell production and repair. Left the skin plump and super soft. The tragic thing is that Dove discontinued it and the only place you can find the cleansing pillows with cleanser in them that attach to the device is on amazon and they ain’t cheap!!! Goodbye love you were better than they apparently thought you were.

Coastal Scents BR-110 flat top kabuki brush
Coastal Scents BR-110 flat top kabuki brush

It lasted a year, had a good run, but now it sheds more than Stripe in the summer!!!!!!

Ebay beauty sponges
Ebay beauty sponges

These where my first dupe for the beauty blender. They are a bad dupe but got the job done, sorta. They are good for concealer but not much for foundation. I’v since found better/ exact dupes, so you can rest in peace now.

FRAGRANCE!!!!

Victoria's Secret sheer fragrance mist in super model
Victoria’s Secret sheer fragrance mist in super model

I had the mist and the perfume and this scent is everything for the spring and summer!!!! I have to let this baby go cause it has gone bad. It now just smells like alcohol. Poor baby

FOOD/SNACK!!!!

Trader Joe's Crunchy cookie butter
Trader Joe’s Crunchy cookie butter

Every time I go out of town i have to find a Trader Joes. They are my favorite grocery store and we don’t have one in West Virginia (which is the #1 reason why  I gotta go!!!). This cookie butter is the ginger bread man’s version of peanut butter. It’s probably the only unhealthy thing in the entire store, so who cares. If slathering tihs on top of my dark jewish rye bread is wrong, I don’t wanna be right. Both my mom and I have even had relatives in other states bring us some when they come in town. My sister has her neighbors ex husband bring some in when he come in town. IT IS THAT SERIOUS!!!!

Trader Joe's spicy chai tea latte mix
Trader Joe’s spicy chai tea latte mix

Well hello!!!! If I was able to legally marry an inanimate object, then I would introduce you to Mr. Bradley (of course he would take my name since this is completely crazy)!!! I add this to my almond milk and it is a glass of delicious love in a cup. In the winter they have a pumpkin chai latte that is just as good. I just opened my last stash and I’m already getting nervous!!!

Well folks that all of my nonsense for the evening. Tune in next time for who knows what and nobody knows how crazy it will get. Questions and comments bellow and please subscribe.

Smooches
