I love using stuff up.
I feel like it justifies my shopping habits, especially to my dear, sweet husband. “See, honey? I DO use all of these products.” So for today, I have a post showing you what products I’ve used up recently and some thoughts on how they performed for me. I think this is a cool idea (sadly, it wasn’t my own) because there’s only so much we can tell from a couple weeks of use, versus using the products for a month or more.
So what have I finished up?
I LOVE this product. I’ve talked about it several on occasions after first purchasing it on my honeymoon at the beginning of May. I have used it every single day since then (four months isn’t too shabby), appreciating the coverage/brightening combo that is lightweight and doesn’t crease- just put on a light, even layer. I have repurchased this.
I also bought these on our honeymoon (hey! I was coming off of a spending ban) and have been nothing but impressed. These have also been favorites of mine, improving the condition of my scalp and making my hair feel more moisturized. These are sulfate-free and concentrated- a little goes a long way. I’ve also repurchased this set.
Leave In Split End Conditioning Treatment: I had been using this throughout the summer while I was refusing to do anything but let my hair air-dry. I love how it smoothed out my frizz and added some weight to my curls without weighing them down. As for the “split remedy” claims, there is nothing that fixes split ends other than cutting them off. NOTHING. But the appearance can be diminished with smoothing conditioners like this. I did buy another one when I forgot mine while traveling, but I don’t feel compelled to purchase again.
Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray: This is SUCH A GREAT PRODUCT! Sorry I just needed to get that out. I have no idea how many of these I’ve used now, as I’ve been buying them for years. It works so well and always leaves my hair feeling soft and looking shiny. I don’t see a reason to spend more when this is so awesome!
Sally Hansen Salon Formula Nail Polish Remover: This was a cheap and effective polish remover. I have no complaints about it, though I wasn’t bowled over, either. I really want to try Essie’s or Zoya’s polish removers, so I probably won’t repurchase just for that reason.
Up and Up Makeup Remover Wipes: These were also inexpensive and effective, but weren’t amazing. They took off my makeup well enough, though I still had to use two, if not three, if I wanted to take off my eye makeup. I want to try another brand to see what else is available, but I will keep these in mind if I’m not finding anything I like.
That’s it! Those are the products I’ve used up most recently. What have you used up lately? Let us know n the comments!
