November-December Empties and Chuckers

November Empties

  1. Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion - Love it, love the pump so I washed and refilled it with another lotion from my stash.
  2. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence - I have been in love with this stuff since 2006, though due to its price I've weaned myself off it from time to time. If I ever finish my skincare stash, I may repurchase this again.
  3. Alpha H Liquid Gold Prep and Prime - Took me a year to finish this bottle, as I found it too harsh to use on a daily basis.
  4. Shiseido The Skincare Night Moisture Recharge - Nice, but not so nice I'd purchase a whole bottle.
  5. Gaia Foaming Cleanser - Rather than go to waste, I started using face products I don't like or can't wait to use up as body products. This cleanser worked a treat as a body wash. But it does without saying I won't be repurchasing this.
  6. SweetSpot Gentle Wash - Also used as body wash.
  7. Laviol Organic Bearberry Brightening Moisturiser - Used as body lotion.
  8. Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Face Wash - Cheap, but effective so already purchased a full-sized backup.
  9. Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion - Also, cheap, but effective. And reminds me a lot of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. My full-sized backup is already on rotation. 
  10. John Frieda Root Awakening Conditioner - Standard-issue conditioner. Works, but won't be repurchasing as I don't find the scent pleasant to use.
  11. Shiseido Zen Eau De Parfum - Trying to use up my sample scents. This was nice, but I'd prefer to be have a signature scent. Still looking and still working through three full-sized bottles as well some samples. 
  12. Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Toit Eau de Toilette - Gorgeous fragrance, possible contender for repurchase (but probably not for another 5 years). 

December Empties

  1. Garnier Fructis Strengthening Shampoo - Standard-issue shampoo of which I have a cupboard-full -- all drugstore freebies.
  2. Clearasil Ultra Acne Treatment Cream - Expired stuff. Meh.
  3. Shiseido Revital Lotion Ex I  - I love Japanese toner/softeners, this included, though I prefer the Benefiance range.
  4. Nivea Rich Nourishing Body Moisturiser  - Standard lotion, ok for summer, not enough for winter.
  5. Nivea Irresistibly Smooth Body Lotion - Ditto.
  6. L'Oreal Youth Code Youth Booster Serum  - Meh. Used liberally on my neck and chest just to finish it off.
  7. Skin Doctors Eye Tuck - Didn't make much of a difference to my puffy eye bags so I used it up as a light moisturiser all over my face and neck.
  8. Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream - Too harsh for my face, but really good for smoothing out the bumps on my arms and legs. 
  9. Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion - Also used up as a body lotion.
  10. Clinique Happy Perfume Spray - Really don't like this so I'm going to accept defeat and toss this out.
  11. Blistex SPF 20 Lip Conditioner - Ugh. Horrible-smelling. 
  12. Lancome Juicy Tubes - I have had this for years, it just doesn't do it for me. Sticky and not moisturising at all.
  13. Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara - Really nice mascara, too bad it smudges on me.
  14. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara - Also nice; also smudges.
  15. L'Oreal Blush Brush - Decade-old brush that came in a blush compact. 'Nuff said.
  16. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - I finally used one up. A few more samples to go.
  17. Face Shop Samples - Nothing that wowed me. Just trying to finish up some samples.
  18. Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Toit Eau de Toilette - Second sample used up. Not sure I miss it having it though.
  19. Flower by Kenzo - Not terribly excited by this; apart from finishing it.
  20. La Perla J'Aime Eau de Parfum - Ditto.
