Given the number of new products that I have been testing, I am actually a touch surprised that I finished up any full-size products in July. That said, most of them needed little use to be finished off. However, that doesn't make tossing the empty containers into the recycle bin any less satisfying. I did pretty well finishing up deluxe samples, and the odds and ends that came in little sample pots. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with my progress-- as if there is actually such a thing--given that I continue to collect more products (full size and sample). Therefore, it might be more apt to suggest that I just reallocate my storage space to accommodate new products as I use up old ones.
Here's what I thought of the products that I finished:
Caress Juicy Escape Body Wash (reviewed here): I really liked this body wash because it smells delicious and does a nice job cleaning the skin without stripping it. I already have a replacement!
Sponge Krema Niktas Night Cream (reviewed here): This is a lovely antioxidant rich anti-aging night cream. It feels amazing on the skin, and it leaves it soft, supple, moisturized and lifted.
Vitabath Cupcake Couture Dreamy Pink Frosting Body Wash (discussed here): In a word:
D E L I C I O U S!
Miscellaneous Assorted Samples: Not much to report primarily because each of the samples didn't provide enough product to determine how well they worked, or to form much of an opinion about them.
Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream (reviewed here): This is a wonderfully hydrating and lightweight eye cream, and it feels wonderful on the kin. I find that it provides more than enough moisture for my delicate eye area, and it never causes me to get milia.
Anna Naturals Glowing Naturals Walnut Face & Body Scrub (discussed here): This is a nice scrub, but I didn't have enough in this sample pot to have much else to say about it. I only tried it on my body, and it did leave it smooth and moisturized. I wouldn't mind having a full size jar!
Naturalis Cose di Natura Aloe Vera Shampoo and Conditioner: They seemed like nice products, but once again the samples didn't last long enough for me to be able to really say how well they worked on my naturally curly hair.
TATCHA Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (reviewed here): This is an unbelievably wonderful cleansing oil! It is light in feel and weight, and once you add a touch of water it emulsifies and effortlessly removes every bit of makeup and dirt. Skin is left more soft and smooth than you can imagine. It can be used as a pre-cleanser or a cleanser.
Molton Brown Coco & Sandalwood Nourishing Body Lotion (discussed here): This is a nice lotion and it smells good. The texture is light and hydrating, and it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth with a light pleasant fragrance.
Left to Right: Gold Sakura Beauty Bar and Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Soap.
I took pictures of both soaps at the beginning of the month before they were used up since I long ago tossed their packages. I managed to finally use up both bars completely by the end of the month, and largely was able to do so because I kept them in the shower.
Gold Sakura Beauty Bar from the Hinoki Kurocha Line (reviewed here): This is a really interesting soap that one places into a little plastic net to activate a very dense lather once a little water is introduced. It leaves skin squeaky-clean, and is probably best suited for combination to oily skin types.
What did you use up, give away, return, or toss in July? Do tell!
