This month I finished 8 things. I am adamant in finishing all the 'skincare and haircare' stuff I have stacked in my cupboard. It was looking quite ridiculous in the beginning of the year, and now it's starting to show signs of sanity. I just need to fight the online shopping urges. And they are quite profound lately... The routine has been about clicking products into the basket and then emptying, only to restart all over again.
I'm trying very hard to finish something makeup related. It's hard. I just keep on trying new things (and acquiring more and more). Plus, banning myself from buying makeup only makes me buy more eventually. Personally, I find project 10 pan related blog posts very interesting - it's representative of what you like to use on a daily basis. I know that my blue turqoise eyeliner will never be part of posts like these, and neither will a blush or whatever. However, when I do see someone complete a blush or an eyeshadow, I can only swoon and wish I could do that too! That really takes commitment and determination!!!
I bought this in the large 450mL size, and this bottle has lasted me for about 8-9 months. Its one of my trusted skincare staples, an absolute necessity to remove makeup prior to bed. The pink bottle is geared towards anyone with oily skin, but still remains gentle and effective for the drier months. 3 pumps is what I need to remove all the makeup off my face, followed by another cleanse with my IPSA Cleansing Smooth Foam.
Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Body Lotion
This was another repurchase - I love the texture of the body lotion, in that it's not too creamy and not too lightweight. It's scented of course, in Lavender, so it makes it a perfect bed time routine. My only gripe is the pump and bottle, which makes it impossible to get any last remnants of the cream when it approaches the bottom.
IPSA Cleansing Smooth FoamI love this cleanser and have gone through tubes and tubes of this. I buy backups whenever I can. It can be quite drying, but it cleanses extremely well. My skin breaks out when I change my cleanser.
Korres Wild Rose 24-hour Moisturiser SPF 6
This came part of the travel pack, and I've been using this mini size during my short trips around Europe. The product itself feels quite heavy on the skin and takes a while for it to be absorbed. I'm not quite used to the greasy feeling, so I would only recommend it for drier skin types.
Kiehls Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Sunscren SPF 50 PA +++
It usually takes me many months to finish a full size skincare product. On the contrary, the Kiehls sunscreen vanished within a few months. I had to deform and squeeze the remaining product that was stuck around the sides of the container and trust me, it was a real pain in the butt. You can find a full review here.
Kerastase Masquintense Epais (for thick hair)
I give credits to the this particular hair masque for restoring the health to my hair. I went through months relying on this in order to smoothen out my damaged ends as a result of a bad perm job. The disadvantage is that it is loaded with silicones, which you would occasionally need to deep cleanse. Otherwise, my hair had never felt so silky and smooth before this. It's really lovely and in fact, I have a backup already in use!
Lush Snow Fairy Showergel for Body and Hair
Cotton candy is the only way to describe this showergel. It's very extremely heavily scented and almost passed me out when I first took my first whiff! Even though it is limited edition, I don't think there's anything special about it.
And finally Cutex Strengthening Nailpolish Remover
Not sure if I should have included this, but I am. I'm searching for a better nailpolish remover - something that could be more gentler to my cuticles, which have been flaking off like no tomorrow.
What have you finished lately?
