Wow, January has come and gone already. It just flew by!
I surprised myself by using up some products in January.
Skin Care Items:
Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator was okay. It didn't help with lightening anything, which is par for the course for all products I have tried. I've decided to go with hydrating serums instead and hopefully that'll be less pricey than those that claim to lighten dark spots, etc.
Vitacreme B12 was a good hydrating moisturizer. I've had this one for so long as I didn't use it consistently. It's something that I may repurchase although I'm undecided at this point.
Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Cream was an eye cream that I liked. It was nice and hydrating, which I liked. I hope that it did some age delaying but I didn't see anything significant. This is a maybe on repurchasing since it was a bit pricey.
Missha BB Boomer Primer was a primer that I really liked for the warmer months. I would consider repurchasing this but will have to wait till my friends go to Korea. (I do not like ordering from the U.S. site.)
I used up 2 MAC and 1 Sephora eyeshadow. One of the MAC eyeshadows is a staple color so I will definitely be repurchasing. The Sephora eyeshadow is also a staple but the color has recently been discontinued. I was fortunate to have purchased a backup a while ago and then last week the Sephora staff found two more in their back stock, which I purchased.
I use my Clarisonic almost every night. In keeping with the suggestion of changing the brush heads every 3 - 4 months, I have decided to change the brush heads in January, April, July and October.
Philosophy Fresh Peaches and Cream Shower Gel was part of a gift set so this is a gift set size. I liked the scent of it but as with all Philosophy shower gels, I thought that it was a bit too emollient. I feel that they don't rinse off well. I will be reusing the bottle to put in some of the shower gel that I'm currently using to take on my trip later this month.
I use the Sephora brand Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner every day to do a quick cleaning of my brushes. This replaced my using Wet Ones every day. I already bought a back up of it and am using it.
Lux Super Damage Repair Conditioner is a favorite of my daughter-in-law. I had been using it and stopped for a while but have started using it again because I have so many of this line of shampoo and conditioner in my stash. It will probably be something that I will continue to stock in my stash--just not as much as I currently have.
