August Trash | Empties #2

There's nothing more satisfying for a beauty junkie than finishing a beauty product. When this happens emotions can range from being sad, happy, relieved to good riddance... I hope you enjoy this trash talk and leave me a comment letting me know what I will find in your trash can (:

The Lush lady gave me a sample of this when I went in for some skincare. I think it was okay, I don't remember it being amazing but then again the sample only lasted a couple of day. I wouldn't repurchase because I have a tonne of skincare waiting to be used and it's quite expensive..

2. Maybelline Express Care Eye Makeup Remover
I think this product is discontinued. I picked up a bottle for 50% off at Chemist Warehouse and then I loved it so much, I picked up 3 more. I think I still have 2 backup bottles. They replaced this with the Total Clean Eye Makeup Remover which I haven't tried yet. The two-layered products you have to shake usually works pretty well for me even with waterproof mascara.

To be honest, I change my brush heads every 6 months. I use it at night only and maybe 5 nights a week. I find delicate is best for me all year round as I can use the high setting during summer and lower settings during winter where my skin is more dry and sensitive. The current brush head I have on my Clarisonic is about 2 months old and I don't think I'll be repurchasing soon as I'm trying to see if I can stop using it.

These really did nothing for me. To be fair I have only found one wipe which works for my face - Nivea Pure & Natural. Everything else hurts and in this case, doesn't even remove any makeup. I rarely use wipes anyway so I used these up by wiping my makeup area and swatches.

I absolutely LOVE Liz Earle like omg.. This was a great moisturiser, without being thick or heavy feeling, just so comfortable on the skin. I think I still have one (or two..) jars of this left so I won't need to repurchase this but definitely would when I run out.

I turned to Proactiv earlier in the year when my skin was freaking it out from the move interstate.. It had worked for me when I was younger so I thought I would give it another go. The toner is probably my favourite from the core range - it's alcohol free with glycolic acid. I wouldn''t repurchase because I'm trying to have a more "natural lifestyle" but I would say don't diss Proactiv until you've tried it. True, it's not going to work for everyone (nothing does) but it has also done wonders for a lot of people and you might just possibly be one of them. (Side note: For me, Proactive cleared up my 'wide T-zone' but I still constantly battle with hormonal acne around my mouth.)

These shed like nobody's business and they hurt my face. I've had them for a while and I tried to make it work by washing them with a conditioner and thinking they would stop shedding after a while but nup. These have got to go.

This has nice coverage, SPF25 and I usually use this everyday under my foundation (or alone) as a base. I won't be repurchasing this one in particular because I hear the gold one is more geared towards normal/dry skin and I also picked up the Lioele Tripe the Solution because my friend (who hates BB Creams) raved on about it.

I picked this up ages ago when it was all the rage.. and I totally fell into the hype. Now, I don't think it's anything special at all. Every brand has come out with this type of hair oil (including Aldi) and I find they all work (or not work) all the same. My favourite hair serum is CHI Silk Infusion before heat and Davroe Moisture Sense Argan Oil.

I brush my teeth.. as I'm sure you all do. I prefer the Sensitive one but I've been using the Precision Clean lately (because it comes in a bulk pack at Costco) and it doesn't hurt my teeth or anything.

This is a limited edition Christmas product and I got about 3 uses out of this. It's white and it comes in the shape of a beard/moustache. The scent is pleasant but not overly sweet like floral or fruity.

Don't forget to let me know what you've finished up lately. Thanks for reading!

    1. Thanks!

      Yea.. scratchy, shed-y brushes are probably the one thing in your makeup collection that you can't 'make work'.
