It’s been another month and I am happy to report that I was able to finish up 3 of the 5 products! I am very excited by how fast I am flying through some of these products because it just means that I get to. Try even more products out for you guys. I hope you’re excited about it too.
The two products I didn’t finish are definitely on their last legs. The Smashbox Photofinish Primer is one of my favourites and only has a few days worth of product left. I have been opting out of wearing primer this week since I have found a BB cream I have been loving, but I am sure this will be in my Spring empties post (coming soon)!
I have been using the Rimmel Borw This Way in blonde for just about a year now. It is easily the quickest and easiest way to do my brows since it provides a lot of coverage and keeps the brows in place. This is very close to being empty but I think I still may have a month to go with this product.
It seems that I am quite good at using up my sample sized products. I was able to finish up the Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel which incidentally wasn’t the product I planned to use up. Initially, I wanted to use up the toner from this line but the day after posting my #Finish5 for May, I spilled the toner all over the sink. Luckily, this cleanser was comparable in size and I was still able to finish. Both the cleanser and toner didn’t really impress me. I am in love with the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox as you may know so I did have pretty high hopes. They worked but they were no where near the miracle product that the night cream is.
Another product from Vichy would be the Vichy Idealia BB Cream in light. I don’t know if it was this shade or what but I noticed it seemed to really bring out my freckles and dark spots. It didn’t provide much coverage and also felt very cakey with a powder on top. That being said, I did like how light and moisturizing it was when worn by itself. I would wear this on no-make up make up days or if I was heading to the beach for example. It’s not perfect and if I were to recommend an alternative, I would say the Derma E BB Cream works just that much better.
As for the Origins Original Skin Retexturizing mask with Rose Clay, I did really enjoy this. It was a light exfoliating mask that seemed to help draw out oil and dirt as well as exfoliate. I feel it is worth a try if you haven’t already.
This month, I am focusing on all the major categories: face, eyes, skin, hair and nails. I hope to finish up the Herbal Essences Wild Naturals shampoo and conditioner duo and the Fresh Rose Face Mask. These two are sample sizes and running on empty. The remaining three products are full sized but I think I can make a rather large dent. The Rimmel Scandaleyes eye liner in Nude will be the biggest challenge. The Covergirl Trublend concealer in Light is about half way gone but I love using it on my under eyes as an initial concealer. I am on a bit of a nail art and nail wrap kick right now so before these Sally Hansen nail wraps no longer stick, I want to see if I can get a few wears out of them.
Wish me luck! I have been thinking about switching this #Finish5 post around and simply pick 5-10 products I plan to focus on using that month. Which format do you prefer?
Til next time, ttfn x
