Uh Bariffle Ah Empties

It's not only candles getting used up around here 😛

I used to do #TrashThursday on IG but maybe that's not the right medium. Here I'll be able to link to previous reviews and you can tell me if you want to know more about a product.


The only thing new to me was the Murad Essential-C Cleanser. I'm going to buy another of these because I'm not sure what I think of it. The Clarimatte one is a standard repurchase.


My body lotion stash is ridiculous thanks to Eden's Choice. Occasionally I do still pick up a mini for my purse. I'm a huge fan of their formula of course; but I must admit that Hempz ones are amazing as well. The Tree Hut 'Coconut Lime' scent did not agree with me at all.

Viktor following in Logan's footsteps
Ok this is months of hand soap empties here. Just like with the candles, 'Peach Bellini', 'Twisted Peppermint', 'Black Cherry Merlot', 'Warm Vanilla Sugar', 'French Lavender' and 'Eucalyptu…

Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser

From April 2017 I told y'all I was impressed with this so you know this post is a product rave. Yet another Stephanie Nicole recommendation that agreed with me. From Sephora.com: "What it is: An indulgent cream-to-foam, soap-free cleanser that’s formulated with real skin-nourishing Greek yogurt. If you want to know more… This luxurious cleanser made with Greek yogurt is rich in proteins, minerals, and vitamins to gently cleanse while nourishing—leaving skin soft and supple, and reducing redness. The formula also easily removes makeup and impurities without irritation. The cleanser includes amaranth seed extract to soothe, as well as calming honeysuckle to provide antibacterial benefits."

Hair Product Declutter

There's nothing like some reorganisation to get the declutter juices flowing.


I got some shelves made by Ten Twenty Six Furnishings to alleviate a storage problem in my bathroom. While putting my most used products in my line of vision I stumbled across a few I don't use.

some random foaming mousse - never used itAveda Be Curly Curl Controller - on my dry curl it would make my hair clammy. It didn't play well with other products either SoftSheen Carson Tangle Defense Leave-In Conditioner - this is an ok product. I just prefer my leave-in spray from Carol's DaughterMacadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream - same issues as with the Aveda product. Maybe I should have used these in conjunction with a diffuser 😔Gorilla Snot Gel - apparently I should have gotten the one in the yellow packagingShea Moisture Thickening Moisture Mist - it says right there on the bottle that this is for fine, thin hair. I have neither of those. I'm not sure why I bought this expensive …

Top Five Makeup Products I Should Stop Purchasing

We all know that they're certain things we should stop buying. Personally, the hunt for the best thing used to have me prisoner. I'm working on that though. Presently these are the categories where I can admit that I really really shouldn't buy not anudda one...

Mascara


This is ridiculous...and I still want a full size of the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir, Guerlain Maxi Lash and Chantecaille Longest Lash. Ok, those three and then I'm done.

Liquid Foundation


Wid mascara I could almost give myself a bligh.. I enjoy putting it on; like I legit take my time with that ish. I rarely wear false lashes (largely due to the fact that I can't apply them) and I don't have extensions. Liquid foundation now is whole anudda case. I'd rather spot conceal and follow up with a powder. I barely leave the house and when I do, I want the fastest base makeup possible. Lastly, due to my extensive skincare collection I don't need a full coverage foundation. Given all that, what is rea…

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Face Cleanser - Foaming Formula

As I said here, as long as you don't have sensitive skin, cleanser is one part of your skincare routine where you can save some coins. So I tried a new(ish) inexpensive cleanser.


I got the foaming version but there's a Creamy Formula that Caroline Hirons said was comparable the popular one from Cetaphil. In Massy Stores, at the time of purchase, this was approximately $28BDS. I say approximately cause the price tag under this product may not have correlated to it. While that price isn't the cheapest it's a great value for 12 fl. oz. This will last you quite a while.


From their website:

Beauty Oil Woes

From Part One we've learned that beauty oils are also for oily skin people. We've also learned that these types of products can serve multiple functions. Now I want to get into a few oils that I would almost call treatments.


Sunday Riley Luna Night Sleeping Oil
