Yes, it’s time for another monthly post about the month of August, today it’s all about my trash, aka the products that I used up in the month of August. I didn’t use up as much as last month but there is still a fair amount, I think that may have something to do with the fact that I have and use so many mini sized products. So, let’s start talking trash.
Smashmallow Mint Chocolate Chip – I cannot say enough good things about these marshmallows, we’re doing a candy bar of sorts at our wedding and I talked my fiance into trying some of these after I bought a bag while I was in Florida. These are so good and a great little sweet snack if you need one, which sometimes I do, these ones are very minty and just a little bit chocolatey. Repurchase: Yes, but only if I was in the mood, the
Smashmallow Root Beer Float – These are the ones that started my love with this brand, probably not this bag exactly but this flavor. This is hands down my favorite of the flavors we have tried, which is four out of the seven I believe they sell. I love root beer and I love how much this tastes like it, without actually having to drink root beer, which I rarely drink. Repurchase: Yes, the second I run out I need another bag!
Lorac Behind The Scenes Primer – I have a bunch of these mini ones and this one has taken me forever to use up, I keep getting them with a palette, they are not my favorite primer ever but they aren’t half bad either. Repurchase: Probably not, they aren’t my favorite and they aren’t really cheap either.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer – I am so excited to be finished with this product, it’s not bad but it’s just not the primer for me, I find that my makeup slips around after a while with this, which I understand happens after some wear but nothing like this. Repurchase: No, I do not like it.
Elf Makeup Remover Pen – This is a really fantastic idea and a fantastic product, it’s just a felt pen that is covered in makeup remover, so when you make a mistake with your winged eyeliner or something of the sort, this is the perfect thing to touch it up without completely ruining it. Repurchase: Probably, it doesn’t last quite as long as I would like but it was good.
Wet ‘N Wild Mega Cushion Highlight in Who’s That Pearl – This is something that I am decluttering because I just don’t like it that much, it’s a little bit hard to work with and it doesn’t really end up looking that great, so I’m not the biggest fan of it. I just had to have it and now I’m decluttering it, but at least it’s a more affordable product. Repurchase: Nope, I didn’t really like it.
Lush The Kiss Lip Scrub – This I can’t link to as it’s limited edition and this is something else that I am decluttering, I love Lush lip scrubs, they are very affordable and do a great job, however the taste of this one is bad enough for me to want to toss it out. This tastes salty and really strange, I do not like it. Repurchase: Nope
Dermablend Loose Setting Powder – I’m sad to see this one go, I never thought I would want a loose powder in my life, but I got this sample and have completely used it up, so it’s safe to say that I love it! The only downfall is that it’s white and powdery, so it shows up on everything, but that would happen with any loose powder I think. Repurchase: Yes, in fact, I plan on repurchasing during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty.
Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Conditioner – This is my current conditioner, I’ve been through two of these so far and I’m almost through a third, so far I really like it, I’m not sure that it’s my end all be all conditioner but it is a really good one and quite affordable too! Repurchase: I already have.
Cutex Twist + Scrub Sponge – I bought these in sets of two, this does fine but it’s nothing special like I thought it was going to be, but it’s not bad either, it just wasn’t what I expected. Repurchase: Probably not.
Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash – This is something else that I’ve decluttered, the smell is the reason why, if it wasn’t for the smell this would be a fantastic, gentle product for removing makeup and cleansing my face. The scent isn’t really that strong or that out there, but for me personally I hate it and had to stop using it. Repurchase: Only if they changed the scent.
Pink Sweet + Flirty Body Mist – I adore this scent, it’s really sweet and flirty, it’s just a great mix of scent and I loved it. Repurchase: Probably, just not right now.
Unwash Bio Cleansing Conditioner – This was a sample size and I got three uses out of it I think, which is pretty good for a sample, however, it’s not enough for me to say one way or the other really. Repurchase: Probably not, just because I didn’t get a good enough feel for it.
Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant – I have a few things that are not pictured, so from here down are things that I didn’t photograph. This deodorant was fine, it just wasn’t what I wanted. I didn’t like the smell and I don’t personally think it kept my odor at bay enough, so because of that, I’m just kind of eh on this one. Repurchase: Probably not this scent but maybe another one.
Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Extra Moisture Detangler – This is something that I am decluttering, I’ve had it for a while and used about half of it, but I didn’t really find that it helped my hair at all so I decided to finally let this one go. Repurchase: No, it just didn’t wow me.
Tarte Frxxxtion Stick – I used this up and it took me longer than I thought it would, but I’m completely okay with that. I had a sample of this that I love so I bought the full size, loved the full size just as much as the sample. This is a great gentle exfoliate for the face, it doesn’t really have a smell and it’s just a super easy to use the product. Repurchase: Yes, just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
Not Your Mothers Naturals Tahitian Gardenia Flower + Mango Butter Curl Defining Detangler – This is something that I am happy to see go, I just didn’t like this as much as I thought I would, and while the shampoo and conditioner in this line smelled amazing, this did not. Repurchase: No, it’s not awful but not great either.
Lush Monsters Ball Bath Bomb – This is a Halloween bath bomb from last year that I am hoping they roll out this year because I really love this one. I love the scent, it’s a really bright, candy, citrus kind of scent. I love the look of this, both out of the water and in the water, and all around I just love this bath bomb. Repurchase: 100%
Lush Pink Bath Bomb – I tried the new one out, which I did not realize had a new scent and I’m kind of bummed about that, it’s not bad but it’s not that in your face, snow fairy type of scent, that I love in all forms except for the shower gel. This is a more grown up version of that I think, it’s toned down a lot and has a little bit more of an earthy smell to it. Repurchase: Eh, probably not.
Secret Arts Jelly Bomb – I have a lot of things to say about this one, but I’m going to save that for a review that I am going to put up next month since I forgot to put this in this months schedule. I do love the smell of this. Repurchase: Nope.
And those are all of my empties from August, quite a few but nothing like lasts month. I think this post has been longer than I anticipated it would be but I did still have a lot of stuff to go over. Anyway, here’s to another good month of using up products.
Have you guys used up anything fun this past month?
