Using My Stash February 2014

Before this month gets further into March, I want to do my last month's using my stash. I didn't use very much so it should be short and sweet.

Hadanomy Aquaplacenta Esthe Foam Facial Cleanser

I got this as a gift from my son and daughter-in-law when they came to visit from Japan. Some items from this line are available here but unfortunately, not this item. I have one backup so will keep it for a while before using it. I do have other facial cleansers to use in my stash anyway.

Sample packets

I spent most of the month of January away from home so I used sample packets instead of packing my regular items. I had just a little bit of these left and used it up last week when I spent another night away from home. Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Vitalizing Complex, which I used as a serum. I liked it but the full-sized item is quite pricey so will probably not purchase. DHC Velvet Skin Coat primer is interesting. I find it to have too much of a silicone feel so I probably won't purchase it. It also came out of the packet as almost as a firm gelatin consistency. I could actually bounce a little! DHC Eye Bright eye cream. I've been using another DHC eye cream and liked this sample (I have several samples of it). Last month for a short while, DHC offered free shipping so I ordered a full-sized tube of it.

Tarte Blush

This was part of a 2012 Christmas set of blushes so it's not a full size but maybe a deluxe sample size. This color was "fantastic". I liked the color but I have so many blush in my stash that I will move on to using another one and not try to find a back up of this to purchase.

Wow, a facial cleanser that comes in an aerosol can? And aquaplacenta? Did it improve your complexion?

Wow, congratulations on using up a blush! I also have a lot of blushes and I don't think I will use any up in the near future!!

@Bijin Blair--I was going to post a link to my review of the facial cleanser and forgot. Here's the link: http://maikatoshaberi.blogspot.com/2012/12/gift-review-hadanomy-and-k-palette.html

I don't know if it improved my complexion but I did like it a lot as it wasn't drying.

@K--Yes, it always is a feeling of accomplishment when I finish a blush!
