All Used Up January 2018

All Used Up January 2018

Another month over and I have some empties to show:

Diorskin Forever Compact in the color 010: This is a great on the go powder, mattifying and with good coverage. I like it a lot better than the liquid Forever foundation. Sadly the lightest color is too dark for me and also a bit pinkish. I think the color is comparable to a MAC NW20. So instead of repurchasing the Forever I went for MAC’s Studio Fix powder instead. I think the quality of both is comparable, the Studio Fix is maybe more drying.

Then I’ve got an empty Diadermine two phase eye makeup remover: these removers are falling out of favor it seems. Nowadays you get a lot more all over removers, which makes sense because we don’t just have eye makeup to remove. But I do like having these around, for swatch removal and to get at waterproof liners and mascara. Anyway, this remover was very oily which helped in getting waterproof makeup off quickly. But the packaging was a terror. I always spilled the product, even though I made sure to put the pad under the bottle properly. It was very annoying.

Ebelin Wattepads: my favorite cotton pads.

La Juice Multifruit sheet mask: I already used the other two in december. I really liked those masks; they are easy to use and hydrate well and they smell nice without smelling like there is a ton of perfume in them.

J. Douglas & Söhne Shea & Vitamin Shower Gel: very nice shower gel, smells like shea butter. There are vitamins listed in the ingredients but I’m not sure how much difference they make in a product that is washed off instantly.

Batiste tropical dry shampoo: smells like coconut and a bit of pineapple. Very nice. Already repurchased.

Rexona Maximum Protection: the evil aluminum. But what can I say? It works.

Next I’ve got Eos lipbalm in strawberry scent. Ladies & Gents, I really don’t understand the hype. I mean the balm itself was of good, waxy quality. But the dome shape??? It’s more of a cat toy than a beauty product imho. Also it exposes too much of the product at once to air, so it goes bad very quickly. This never happens with normal chapstick. Get off my lawn and take your dome lip balm with you.

Lancaster Aquamilk Comforting Lip Balm: best. lip balm. ever. Seriously, this is soo good. I ran out in the middle of january and already miss it so badly, because now my lips are cracking. This has also lasted me very long, since you need only so little of the balm. It’s also the best lip primer, no additional product needed. Have not repurchased yet, because I’ve got some other stuff to use up first but I want to repurchase.

And last but certainly not least, my beloved Clarins liquid blush in the color Vitamin Pink: yes I used up two blushes in the span of three months. I feel very accomplished. It was just about time, too, because the pink one did start smelling funky. Liquids simply don’t last forever, but those did last a couple years so it’s all good. This were the best liquid blushes ever and I don’t understand why Clarins never made new colors. These blushes were LE. I also have the third one, Brown Fizz, but I barely used that one, the color is too dark for me.

It’ll probably be a while until you see more empty blushes on this blog, but I’m trying my hardest. 😉

Alright I know I said last, but I just found one more item:

This is the alverde clear Waschcreme Heilerde. This is a nice cream cleanser, it doesn’t really foam but I like that (cleansers that foam always iritate my skin). This is gentle and it gets the job done. I only used it on makeup free skin, though. This was my morning cleanser and I used it on evenings sometimes when I wore no makeup. This has a new design now, but I checked and the ingredients are still the same. I might even repurchase at some point in the future but now I have enough other cleansers.

Well, that was quite the list for a single month, making a good start. I’ve already got two empties for february as well, so we’ll see how many there are at the end of the month.
