Products I've Used Up

This year, like many others, I have decided to try to use up the products I already have before I go out and buy new ones.

So I figured that collecting my "empties" at the end of each month will give me an extra incentive to "shop my stash" instead of constantly buying products.

These are the products that I used up last month:

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Pineapple Enzyme Mask. I use this facial mask the most, so I will definitely be repurchasing it.  I usually order it from because I can't ever find it at my local CVS or Walgreens

Victoria's Secret Pink Lovely and True Body Lotion. I stayed away from these for a long time because they seem to be marketed to younger customers and college students, but they actually work REALLY well.  The consistency is thick and creamy and it provides long lasting moisture.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads. These worked great for my skin, but I'm not sure that I'll repurchase them right away........... but that's only because I like to try out new products.

Fresh Strawberry Flowers eau de parfum. This is one of my favorite scents. I've already repurchased it.

StrVectin SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles. I received a sample of this from Sephora a few months ago to use on stretch marks................... It didn't work, so I'm definitely NOT going to purchase a full size because it costs about $80-$100. I do want to try another sample size, and use it on a more consistent basis though.

YSL Parisienne eau de parfum sample. I love this, and I'm going to purchase the full size this Spring.

Elf Facial Mist and Set. I've blogged about this before. Already repurchased.

Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Starburst.  I used this to highlight my upper cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose. It's probably the best highlighter I've ever used.

MAC powder blush in Raizin. Already repurchased. I will ALWAYS have one of these in my makeup collection.

MAC powder blush in Format. I used this as a blush and highlighter. I will likely repurchase this over the Smashbox Fushion because it's cheaper, and I can use it in multiple ways.

Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Moisturizer.  I liked this, but it does not have much product in it so I'll probably just stick to the regular Carmex lip balms.

Let me know what you think?
Have you tried any of these products?


  1. My goodness! You go, girl. The only thing I've literally ever finished was a bottle of cleanser and a bottle of moisturizer... EVER.


    1. lol... I'm usually the same way with products so it's going to be hard, but I'm trying to use them all up.

  2. I've been wanting to purchase the MAC Raizin and Format blushes for quite some time now. I think I will now! Thanks for sharing your empties!

    1. Raizin and Format are my favorite MAC blushes.

  3. I seriously need to start downsizing my stash too. On a more random note: I've chosen you to do the nail polish tag, see my blog for more info!
