What's In My Bathroom?

I can finally relax a bit because I'm done with doing my taxes! Unfortunately, I am now broke after having to pay.

I wanted to do a bit of a fun post today that I had thought up a month or so ago. Here's a little peek to see what products I use in my bathroom.

On my sink I have the following products:

Oral B battery operated toothbrush
Sensodyne ProNamel toothpaste
Sana Hadanomy Aquaplacenta Esthe foam
Daiso Puff and Sponge Cleanser
Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil
Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleaner, mini
Mannan Gel Peeling
Kerastase Oleo-Relax
Lion Kirei Kirei hand soap foam

In the shower stall there is:

Naive Facial Cleanser
Hello Kitty Facial Cleanser
Naive Body Wash
Lux Super Damage Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

This picture was taken a couple of months ago. The Hello Kitty facial cleanser was in my March "Using My Stash" post as I had used it up. As you can see, the majority of my products are Japanese brands.

Using My Stash March 2013

Since my last "Using My Stash" post in January, I haven't used up too many things. Here's my list for the last two months:


Trial Size Shiseido The Skincare Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam. This is a great basic cleanser

Rosette Hello Kitty Collagen Wash. Again, this is a great basic cleanser

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap, Rose. My daughter-in-law bought this to try out and liked it a lot that she bought a brand new bottle to take back home with her to Japan and left the opened bottle here for me. I liked this soap as a body wash. It wasn't drying on my skin but it wasn't so emolient that it left my skin feeling slimey.There are some body washes that are supposed to be hydrating but no matter how much you rinse off, you still feel slick and slimey. I don't like that. The only thing that I didn't like is that while it does have a faint hint of rose scent, there is that "organic" soap smell to it. I'm thinking about trying out the Baby scent.

Skincare and Makeup Items:

Sample Size Leirac Intense Nuit Creme. The weather here had gotten quite cold (by Hawaii standards). I could feel my skin drying up and need more hydration so I pulled out this cream to use on the neck and decolletage areas. It's a great cream but quite pricey if bought.

Noevir Raysela Face Protector UV. This is my HG sunscreen and I have several in my personal back stock.

L'Oreal Lash Serum. I was loving this product but I never got to finish up my review on it because I stopped using it consistently for a couple of months. I wanted to start using it again but since I had started using it back in October or November, I decided to toss this out although there's still about 1/3 product left. I have purchased a new one but have just been too lazy to remember to use it.

Disliked Products To Get Rid Of:

Crabtree & Evelyn Bath & Shower Gel, Iris. The scent is lovely, reminds me of violets. I do not like how I can't rinse it off well. My skin feels slick and slimey no matter how hard I try to get it off. I believe my worker liked the scent of the lotion so I will be giving this to her.

That's it! A very short list of things used up in February and March.
