Note: This is a scheduled post
One of the things that I decided I needed to do was to use my stash before I buy more makeup. (It really hasn't been working in that I've still been buying some makeup.)
This is the progress that I have made so far:
The Body Shop Shea Shower Cream. I will definitely not be wanting to replenish this. I really detested the scent. It is quite strong and has what I think is a musk scent, which I do not like. I'm finding that in general, I'm not liking The Body Shop products. For a brand that is supposed to be natural, their products are very strongly scented.
Not sure if I should be including this or not but I decided to include it. Jean Philippe Deep Cleansing Hand Soap in Pink Grapefruit. I got this a while ago when Bed Bath and Beyond opened up here in Hawaii. It was only $1.00. It can't compare at all to Bath & Body Works soaps, which I absolutely love. I still have a couple more bottles in different scents and I will definitely not be replenishing this except with Bath & Body Works, which I can pick up when I go to Las Vegas at the end of this month or when they open up here in Hawaii in March (unless it got delayed. I haven't heard anything.).
Dior Capture Totale One Essential Skin Booster Super Serum. I did like this a lot and loved the concept of it in that you use it before toning. It's expensive so I don't think that I'll be buying this again.
L'Occitane Fabulous Serum. I really like this serum. It's actually the 2nd bottle that I've used. I will purchase another one again when the need arises. I've replaced it with Cle de Peau Anti-Spot Serum which I also really like. I've been lucking out on ebay and was able to pick the Cle de Peau serum twice at a very reasonable price. If I can continue finding a good deal on it, I will continue to use Cle de Peau. If not, then back to Fabulous Serum since the price on it is reasonable.
Noevir 99 Line Protecting Skin Cream. This is one cream that I can't live without. You apply it after toner, serum, moisturizer as a final protective, moisturizing layer. I've already purchased a replacement and will need to purchase another one soon.
That little sample container had Bremmen Upper Eyelid Lifter. I used it all up and must admit that I liked it. It's the one eye cream that is made specifically for the upper eyelid. While I don't believe that I experienced any lifting, I do think that it helped to firm my eyelids so that it was less crepey looking. I want to replenish it but don't want to spend money on it right now.
Noevir Raysela Face Protector UV SPF 30+ PA+++. This is a sunscreen, which is a very important step in anyone's morning skincare routine. I love this sunscreen because it's not greasy and is actually a bit moisturizing. I also like this because it is zinc oxide based instead of chemical based. For those who want to know the difference I found this very simple explanation here. Of course, this is just my own personal perference. I have replenished this.
