Frequently Used Products & Products I've Used Up/Tossed ~ April, 2012

Here are the frequently used products I've used in April:

Givenchy Photo'Perfexion foundation
I've been really loving this foundation so far. It doesn't provide much coverage, which probably is one of the reasons why it feels so lightweight and comfortable, but it's enough to even out my skin-tone and helps my skin look more radiant.

MAC Rubenesque paintpot 
This golden peach cream shadow is what I've been using on a regular basis. I've been really lazy, so what I do is just apply it all over the lid, make sure there aren't any harsh lines, and put on some mascara.

Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash mascara
I love the dramatic look that it gives my lashes: super black, thick, and a lot of volume, but the one thing I dislike about it is the fact that it can get very smudgy depending on how oily my skin is on certain days. I may have to try the waterproof version later on.

MAC Studio Careblend powder
I've been using this powder as a setting powder. It doesn't control oil or anything, but I love the finish that it provides.

MAC Immortal Flower blush
It's a beautiful soft peach blush. I can't get enough of it!

MAC Copperplate eyeshadow
I've been using this eyeshadow on my eyebrows and it looks so natural!

MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish
It's a beautiful highlight powder!


Products I've Used Up/Tossed in April:

Tend Skin
I've mentioned this product on my blog a couple of times now, but I use it to prevent ingrown hair. It's a miracle product for me!

Will I repurchase? Of course. I already have a backup.

Kirkland Facial Wipes
These wipes are one of the most gentle face wipes I have ever used. However, ever since I started using cleanse off oil, I've stopped using wipes on my face... What I mainly use it for now is to take off swatches.

Will I repurchase? After I use all of my packs.... probably not.

Soap & Glory Hand Food
It smelled amazing, but I honestly feel like it's overhyped. I'm probably only feeling this way because my skin is sensitive to certain scents right now though, but I've used better.

Will I repurchase? No.

Clarisonic brush head for Sensitive Skin
It was time to replace my brush head on my Clarisonic Mia.

Will I repurchase? Of course.
Clinique All About Eyes cream (deluxe sample)
This deluxe sample size product lasted me two months! It's a very lightweight, yet moisturizing, eye cream that I always seem to go back to.

Will I repurchase? Maybe in the future.

Urban Decay Primer Potion - mini
I know I could depot it, but I'd rather not risk an eye infection due to the possibility of getting some of the plastic particles into the product.

Will I repurchase? Not right now... I have a lot of eyeshadow primers to go through.

Sibu Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil
I bought this product because I thought it would help with my eczema. It helped temporarily, but I don't think it helped enough for me to want to repurchase. Plus, I can't stand the smell!

Will I repurchase? Nope.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That MAC skin finish compact looks so incredibly beautiful! I have a habit of depotting everything, but I think if I owned that one, I'd just leave it in the original packaging. :)

    Thanks for the welcome to the Clarisonic family! I read some reviews that it helps bring blackheads to the surface and slowly purges them from your skin. Is that true or accurate? What's your experience with it?

    So far, I am loving that my skin glows after I use it. I think what they say about product absorption is also true. Everything just sinks in better! So happy so far!

    1. Hey Carol,

      I've had my Clarisonic Mia for about two years and in my experience, it doesn't purge blackheads unless I use a BHA facewash in conjunction with the Mia! I think it may depend on the facewash itself, but I'm really happy with my Clarisonic either way!

      I'm glad you're happy with it! It's such a great investment and I really think it's worth every penny! =)
