This month my empties are actually from mid April through the end of May. I did a major clean out as I got a new Alex 9 drawer storage unit from ikea over Memorial Day weekend so it was time to clean up! Some of these items I decided it was time to pitch.
Innisfree Perfect 9 Repair Skin & Lotion. I got these samples from an Innisfree World order. I thought this skin was fine but nothing too special. I barely used any of the lotion as its impossible to get out of that teeny bottle!
Sulwhasoo Balancing Water. I also had a lotion but must have thrown it out. I got these from a 3Bbox and they were nice but not enough to purchase the full size. And again with lotion in little plastic bottles…grrr.
Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Serum. I also got this from an Innisfree World order. I love this serum and already own the full size. It smells great!
These are some of the items I pitched.
Hiello Blooming Multi Firming Cream. I got this from a Memebox and it really never did it for me. And it smelled funny.
Hada Labo Hydrating Foaming Facial Cleanser. I got this from Ulta and unfortunately when I PH tested it was way too high. Out it goes.
Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser. This was a free deluxe sample with a Sephora order. Way too high of a PH!
Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel. I used to use this peel quite a lot but the full strength was too strong and left me very red for a while and the sensitive was too weak to be effective. I’ve found a lot better Korean Beauty exfoliators so I have moved on.
Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm. I don’t remember where I got this but I wasn’t impressed with it. Time to pitch it!
Nubian Heritage Honey & Black Seed all natural deodorant. I got this from a Yuzen box. While I love the idea of a natural deodorant I’ve never tried one I liked well enough to give up my Secret Clinical Strengh deodorant. I tried this on a cooler day and I worked as far as a deodorant. But ooooeeee it smells horrible. Not a scent I like so time to go!
Innisfree Eco Natural Green Tea BB Cream. I bought this from someone on the Memebox Addicts facebook page. I tried it several times but ultimately it was not quite the right color for me.
The Face Shop Face It Velvet Skin Primer. I tried this for my primer review I did a while back. I hated it!!
12 Benefits Healthy Hair Treatment. I got this from Birchbox and I’ve used it before. It’s a nice hair treatment in that it leaves my hair silky smooth. It also smells fantastic. It’s pricey so I try to pick up samples like this where I can.
Miss Jessie Super Sweetback Treament. I also got this from Birchbox. I was excited to try a Miss Jessie product as I’ve heard good things about them. Unfortunately my hair hated this…like a lot! It rebelled in a frizzy mess so out it goes.
Living Proof Satin Hair Serum. I got this in a Sephora sampler bag. It made my hair very oily.
Organic Skincare Doctor Hand & Nail Cream. Manuka Honey. I got this in an allure beauty box. I love honey products so I thought I would like this but it was quite sticky and smelled funny. Pitched!
Fresh Sugar Lemon Bath & Shower Gel. I got this from LuxePineapple and I don’t use it everyday so it lasted a while. I love the smell like frozen lemonade. Also quite moisturizing. I have another one that I will use soon.
En Bloom by Fit Lush Lemongrass Lime Argan Oil Body Scrub. I got this from Kloverbox. It is a sugar scrub and smelled amazing. I loved that it came with a little wooden spatula to help mix it up and scoop out the scrub. I may repurchase once I’ve used up some other scrubs I have.
Skinfood Shea Butter Hand Lotion. I love Skinfood hand lotion. It works great and is non greasy. I have several more tubes of different flavors of this lotion in my stash to use.
That’s it for this month. I feel pretty accomplished getting rid of this much out of my stash. Now if I could just quit adding to it!
