Products Im Throwing Away

In The Bin...

One of the most satisfying jobs I give myself is to clean out my bathroom cabinet. Sorting through products that I have not used for a very long time, I found that a few of them were all too easy to toss into the bin. They just didn't agree with me.

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Lip Butter: I use to love this lip butter when I was a teenager. When I tried it the other day I found the scent overpowering and I don't think it's as moisturising as some other lip balms I use that the moment. 

Ofra Lipstick in Red My Lips: I recieved this lip colour in a Lust Have It! box. This is a matte lipstick and it's bright red. I doubt if I will ever wear it because it's not my thing.

Napolean Perdis Lip Gloss: This lipgloss came as a sample with an Instyle magazine and it has been sitting in my bathroom cabinet ever since. I prefer lip colours with a rosy tint and nude colours are my least favorite so I had never had the urge to wear this. 

Natio Loose Mineral Foundation:  This was my first mineral foundation purchase but I quickly tired of it because I realised that it didn't provide as much coverage as I would have liked. It also didn't stay all day either.

Puretopia Creamy Face Cleanser: This bottle is almost empty, but that's only because I bought it and had no money to buy a different cleanser once I realised that it was too creamy for my face and made me break out in spots. So, for a few weeks I had unruly skin. I haven't used this cleanser since.

Lush Full of Grace Serum Bar: I was having a bit of an obsession with serums, and I have had very good experience with Lush products. So I bought the Lush Serum Bar. I transferred it into a tin because it melted horribly while it was being delivered to me (ordered online). This Serum made my skin dry and made me breakout.

L'Oreal Colour Infaillible in Naughty Strawberry: I  bought this eyeshadow on a whim, looked at the colour swatch and forgot all about it. This bright pink, loose eyeshadow with golden flecks in it is NOT my colour. I have always given my purchases a lot more thought from then on.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Black: This was a gift from Rimmel but with no obligation to review. I did love the shape of the brush because it is HUGE which allows the look of long lashes. However, it took about a week before the formula became clumpy, I believe its because the bottle and the brush is big so it allows air to get inside.

A lot of these products are not cruelty free, but they had been sitting in my cabinet for some time before I decided to purchase only cruelty free products.

Have Fun!

  1. Great post! I have been seeing that Rimmel mascara for a while now and it has been confusing me so it's good to know that it actually does something.

    1. It does make lashes nice and thick. But be warned it goes clumpy quickly. :-)

  2. Aw, sorry that those things didn't work out, but now there is more space for new makeup! :o)

    1. Yes! I have so much make up to get through before I can really justify buying more. Haha.


I love to read your comments, I would love to hear your thoughts, thanks!
