I feel pretty accomplished this month. Though I did totally bomb and forget to use 1 of the 5 products, I did actually finish 4! Any guesses?
I completely forgot to use the elf Eye Refresh the entire month. You know how sometimes you just can’t for the life of you remember something? No matter how many times it comes up or you google it or whatever, you just can’t? I swear I referred back to my Finish 5 blog post over 10 times to try and remember what to use up and I still managed to forget.
It did do me some good though because in the end, I completely finished the Murad Essential C serum, the Marc Jacobs nameless lipgloss, all three of THEFACESHOP Real Nature masks and I dipped into the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Face mask. My skin was extremely hydrated as you can imagine.
I actually was able to finish off the Murad serum within a week. I love the Murad Essential C line – the smell, the feel, the results. The only thing I am not such a fan of would be the price. If I were to recommend one product from the line, I would go for the moisturizer over the serum.
I had a bit of a fail moment when I threw out the two out of three sheet mask packages that I was using for this Finish 5 but I did get to use them and I have a full review coming soon. The one thing I will say is the Red Ginsing mask is my absolute least favourite. I wouldn’t recommend!
Though I didn’t completely empty it – perhaps I will tonight – I do like the PTR Cucumber Gel mask. It feels amazing on the skin, makes me face feel soft and plump afterwords. I do like it but will likely not purchase it since it is not cruelty-free.
Lastly, I did finish my Marc Jacobs lipgloss. It isn’t sticky, it feels lovely, but for a lipgloss, I would look to a less luxurious brand personally.
For the next round of my #Finish5, I have a good mixture of skincare and make up. I picked these 5 non-cruelty-free products because they are already running low and I want to finish up what I can that isn’t CF!
For skincare, I had the Vichy Normaderm toner but funny story, I spilled it last night so let’s just pretend this is a picture of the Vichy Normaderm cleanser. I also have an Origins Retexturizing mask with Rose Clay to use up. Both are sample/travel sized as is the Vichy Idealia BB cream in Light which I received as a sample from Shoppers last year. I am so heartbroken that Vichy isn’t cruelty-free since I do love their skincare products.
Finally, the two full sized products are the Smashbox Photofinish primer and the Rimmel Brow This Way brow gel in Light. Wish me luck!
Til next time, ttfn x
