Finished/Tossed/Giveaway Products from November 2012 to the Present

Hello All! I hope life is treating you all well. I've been meaning to post this a while ago, but I haven't had time to resize the images!

Anyway, here are the products that I've used up since November:
- Blink eyedrops
- Clarisonic brush head (deep pore cleansing) - Already using a backup.
- Shiseido Eudermine Revitalizing Essence - Amazing stuff  & I already have a backup, but I want to finish up some toners before I use it.
- Shiseido Benefiance Eye Cream - This was just ok for me. I don't plan to repurchase.
- Eminence Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer - Already using my backup.

- MAC Fast Response Eye Cream - Already using my backup. I always use this before eyeshadow application.
- LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter - Using my backup.
- Origins Starting Over Age Erasing Eye Cream w/ Mimosa - Using my backup.

- Nature's Wick: Bonfire Nights
- B&BW: Black Pepper Bergamot

Although I love some of the B&BW candle scents, I only plan on repurchasing the Nature's Wick candles. I just have to finish using all the candles I own first!

- B&BW Candle: White Barn No.2 Chestnut & Clove
- Kirkland Cotton Rounds

- L'Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream - Love this stuff!
- B&BW Candle: Sandalwood Vanilla

These are the products I've tossed:
- Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Professional Size) - I was so sad and disappointed when this product dried up on me. =( Because of this, I don't think I'm repurchasing.

- Lip products: Wet N Wild, Rimmel, NYC, & LUSH
- Hard Candy Concealer
The texture of these products weren't the same anymore, so I had no choice but to throw them out.

 These are the products that I've given away to my mother-in-law & co-workers (but mainly to my MIL):
- Hand creams, Vitamin E oil, & Vaseline (this was thrown out, I accidentally placed it in the wrong pile)

 - Exfoliator & Makeup Fix Spray

- a bunch of lip products from various brands - all to my MIL

- cream shadows & ELF blushes - to my MIL

- eyeshadows, powder blush, & cream blushes - to MIL

And that would be it! My main goal was to downsize & get rid some of the stuff I didn't use... My lip drawer looks so much better now! One step at a time, I guess. =)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I use the same cotton rounds! I have to say I like the newer version much better.
    So many empties!!

    1. Thank you, Mandy! I haven't tried the newer version yet, but that's great to know! =)

    2. Hi Mandy, ORIGINS Age-erasing eye cream identified the active constituent in Mimosa and proved it as a very potent stimulator or natural collagen synthesis that helps decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles. For detail review visit:

  2. the shiseido eyecream seems pretty nice...I need get myself an eyecream as I notice fine lines and wrinkles are forming >_<

    1. I've tried many different eye creams and they all seem to work the same! I'm probably going to try something from the drugstore next time.

  3. I remember when you purchased the Shiseido Eudermine! Happy to see you love it! What does it do for you? Darn about the Shiseido Benefiance eye cream...I've been using it forever, but it's not everyone's cup of tea! I tried some eminence products for the first time...really lovely stuff & looking forward to trying more! That was sooooo nice of you to give all that away - great feeling to purge!!!! Did a lot of purging myself & it's great to start the year of with a lighter beauty load :-)

    1. I use it as a toner & it makes my skin so much more clearer & softer! I love it! =)

      And thanks! I thought it was a great way to start the year too!

  5. So proud of you Linh! lol... I think the best way to reduce your makeup is to give them away... haha!

    1. Thanks, Ari! And lol, seriously! I don't think I'll ever hit pan!

  6. You finished a good amount of stuff and I'm sure your MIL will love it! ^_^
