I had a suspicion that I wasn't going to finish up nearly as many products in September as I had in August, and the glaring absence of skincare products accounts for this disparity. I finished soaps, body washes, haircare products and an eyeliner pencil– amounting to 6 full-size products. While this isn't too bad, I am always happier when I finish up more skincare products before they expire. Here is what I finished in September:
Spongellé Hand and Body Washes are extraordinary additions to Spongellé's collection. Spongellé, a Los Angeles based company, creates beautiful products that delight the senses and the skin, and they make wonderful gifts. Bulgarian Rose is absolutely gorgeous scents and they clean the skin without any stripping or drying. In fact, these beautifully aromatic Hand and Body Washes leave skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Notes: Top: Orange, Clove, Strawberry. Middle: Rose, White Flowers, Jasmine. Base: Woody, Sandalwood, Ambery. Purchase Again? Forever and ever! I just opened another bottle! ($22.00 each for 11 oz. from Spongellé).
Spongellé Riviera Collection Body Buffers are brilliant body wash-infused sponges effectively and gently clean and exfoliate the skin, and they also leave the it deliciously baby soft, smooth, supple and moisturized. They really excel in their ability to clean and exfoliate the skin while delighting the senses with their delightful aromas. Spongellé Riviera Collection Body Buffer in Sicilian Blood Orange Notes: Top: Blood Orange, Starfruit, Gerandine. Middle: Passionfruit, Mango Water, Dahlia Flower. Base: Sandalwood, Aquatic Musk. Purchase Again? I already opened another one (in another scent). ($18.00 each from Spongellé).
Potager Soap Co. Unscented Oatmeal Soap is a wondrous unscented oatmeal soap is perfect for people with sensitive skin who need a soothing bar to nourish and pamper their skin. The rich and creamy lather is very moisturizing, and satisfying to use. Purchase Again? I have already opened up another one of their amazing soaps! ($9.98 for 4.5 oz. from Potager Soap Co.).
René Furterer Triphasic Texturizing Conditioner This is a lightweight, and yet very hydrating, conditioner that makes hair manageable, frizz-free and makes hair look thicker, healthier and more shiny. It is formulated to stimulate hair follicles, and I noticed an immediate difference in the way my hair looked and felt when I was using this. Purchase Again? Definitely, if I ever need it in the future. ($12.00-$34.00 for 1 oz. to 5 oz. from René Furterer, Dermstore, LovelySkin and SkinStore).
Derma E Bonding Hair Repair Oil is an ultra-lightweight oil that not only nourishes and hydrates hair and scalp, but it also effectively fights frizz and fly-aways while leaving hair ridiculously soft, smooth and shiny. It has a wonderful light fruity aroma that is informed by its natural ingredients, rather than an artificial fragrance, and while I find the scent delightful, it is not long lasting. Purchase Again? I have other hair oils that I am using currently, but I will definitely buy this in the future. ($12.95 for 1 oz. from Derma E and Ulta).Charlotte Tilbury Rock 'N' Kohl Iconic Liquid Eye Pencils are really spectacular.
One of the first things that I noticed about this wonderful formula, when I started buying these pencils years ago, was the extent to which they are so creamy to the touch and easy to blend. Barbarella Brown, shown above, is a deep and blackened brown without red undertones. It glides across the skin without any tugging or pulling, and it deposits color evenly and effortlessly. It allows you to create a very clean crisp line, but gives you enough time before setting to make a smoky smudged line as well. Once it does set, it is completely waterproof and lasts on me all day long, and without a primer. I do not experience any transfer, smudging or fading, but I do not have very oily eyelids, and your wear-time may vary if you do. Purchase Again? Absolutely! Overall Assessment: 6 full-size products isn't too bad, but hopefully I can finish some of those almost empty skincare products in October. What did you finish ,toss, give away or return in September? Any spectacularly good or bad products to report?
