Beauty Empties

It’s that time again to empty out the trash! This round, skincare products take the spotlight with a couple hair and makeup products thrown in there.

Suave Dry Shampoo | I’ve talked about this product enough on here, but I just wanted to alert all of you to the new bottle packaging. So, consider yourself alerted.

Clinique Differently Moisturizing Gel (travel size) | I’ve had this travel size tube for what seems like forever, so you definitely get your money’s worth. This has been a long-time favorite moisturizer of mine, especially for the warmer months, so I’m sure I will repurchase both the full and travel sizes in the near future.

Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser | I’m a long-time fan of Aveeno products, and this was my go-to cleanser for a few years. Until recently, I relied on this cleanser to keep my skin clear and blemish-free; although I’m sure it is still just as effective, my skin seemed to become immune to it’s benefits so I made a switch (see below). I do, however, still have a backup bottle of this under my sink, and I’m sure it will get used – even if it’s just to use and clean out excess products.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser | Since I recently posted about my updated simplified skincare routine, I won’t go into much further detail about this cleanser in this post. Just know that it’s still working for me, and I still love it. That’s all.

Maybelline Clean Express Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover | This is probably the first liquid eye makeup remover that I have liked; it’s effective in getting all my eye makeup off at the end of the day, but it is still gentle enough that it doesn’t irritate my eyes. I planned to repurchase this product, but luck has it that my mom didn’t want the rest of hers, so I inherited a full bottle for free. Score!

Prescriptives Lash Envy Volumizing Mascara | Another inheritance from my mom’s beauty collection, this mascara is nothing to write home about, but it did serve well as a second coat over whatever mascara I chose for the day (typically Cover Girl’s LashBlast Volume). The brush reminds me of L’Oreal’s Voluminous mascara, but the formula isn’t nearly as wet and doesn’t transfer to my brow bone.
