fullsizeoutput_30c

Product empties for August. Let’s review and see if I will use these again.

Green Light = Yes purchase again

Yellow Light = Maybe under certain circumstances

Red Light = Nope, not for me

Bath Items

Bath & Bodyworks Aromatherapy Eucalyptus Tea Body Wash & Foam Bath: I am working through my collection of soaps, and I know I like the eucalyptus scent. I think in the future I will mindfully purchase soaps with this essential oil, but not the plastic packaging. Yellow Light.

SweetSpot Labs Vanilla Blossom Gentle Wash: This was a nice find at Target. I like that it comes from 97% natural ingredients, but then it makes me think how long the products last… I used so little each day that it took so long to go through it. Yellow Light.

Bath & Bodyworks Golden Sugar Scrub Warm Vanilla: I bought this on sale because I like sugar scrubs in the shower. But this was used up too fast to make it worth it. I also noticed that the oil residue felt more synthetic than the aromatherapy ones I have used in the past. Red Light.

Nature Republic Argan Essential Deep Care Hair Pack: I got a free sample of this from Nature Republic and the sample smelled so good and worked so well! Once I used up the regular size, I found that it didn’t smell as good, but still worked nicely. Yellow Light.

Skincare Items

Dr. Brandt V-Zone Neck Cream: Probably too toxic to keep around. I bought this because I sleep on my side, which now creates beautiful crease lines on my chest. But I don’t use it often. Red Light.

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Emulsion: I thought I would like this because of the Tony Moly Goat Milk Emulsion I had before. Unfortunately, it was too thick and ended up very sticky on my face. Red Light.

Cover FX Custom Infusion DRops Vitamin C + Lemongrass: I used this not to mix in my foundations but as a night moisturizer. However, after some research, I found that Vitamin C is very sensitive to light. So this bottle is not ideal for keeping Vitamin C. Red Light.

Heimish All Clean Balm: This is a sample size. I found that this does not keep very long. It is a solid-like balm to take off makeup. It works very well and I ended up purchasing two full-size jars. Yellow Light.

Sephora Mud Mask Purifying & Mattifying: This was a nice clay mask at an affordable price! I don’t know all of the ingredients so I will have to check to see if it’s non-toxic. Yellow Light.

Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel: This is a great kind of product. I know there are other kinds of brands that have similar peeling gels and they work well for people who need exfoliation but hate physically sloughing off the skin. I prefer the latter, but do enjoy a gentle peel once in a while. Yellow Light.

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser: This one was interesting because it was black and had a warming sensation. I don’t think it helped my acne and I don’t think it was worth it at all. Yikes, I guess I just don’t like Boscia products. Red Light.

The Face Shop Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Foam: A very nice gentle cleansing wash that takes off residual makeup. It doesn’t dry out my skin and is very affordable. Green Light.

fullsizeoutput_30d

Makeup Items

MAC Prep + Prime Fix Plus: I caved in and purchased this because of popular Youtube stars. In some ways, it worked for me helping to set makeup or make eyeshadows more vibrant. I already have some backup setting mists so this won’t be on my list for very long. Yellow Light. 

Maybelline Mega Plush Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara: I liked this mascara from a couple years back. But for some reason, the wand is too flexible and doesn’t coat my lashes very well. Red Light.

Benefit Rollerlash Mascara: Love this mascara! the wand is perfect and the formula works well for me. However, I am working on becoming more cautious of the ingredients going in and on my body. So I will check if this is non-toxic. Yellow Light.

Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint 05 Stripped Down: The color was perfect, but it separated on my lips after a while of wearing it. Red Light.

TonyMoly Peach Lip Balm: This smelled nice and is a thin consistency. This did not have a long shelf life so it turned stale on me kind of quick! Yellow Light.

TonyMoly Pocket Bunny Sleek Mist Facial Spray: This was supposed to help keep my oily skin from getting crazy, but it didn’t work. It just smelled strongly of alcohol but came in a cute package. Red Light.

As you can see, I’m trying to use up my products wisely, but also moving on to making wiser choices about what I put on my face. Have you been more mindful of your beauty products? Let me know if the comments below.

Personal Resolutions

If you look back in my blog, you can see my obsession with beauty products. It took a turn when I discovered Korean Beauty products that work so well for such an affordable price. However, my life is taking different turns and I am making my own personal resolutions.

No more beauty products or skin care products for me! I have no need for new products and I do not want to be a victim to consumerism. So I am making changes. From June until December, I will not be purchasing any new beauty products. Who’s with me?

Beauty Travel Packing

Here in Hawaii, summer is over. The youth are making their way back to school and of course, everyone thinks summer went by too fast. Fortunately, I was able to take a two-week vacation last month. Here is how I pack my beauty products.

20170624_095558

First off, I had to pack my new Face Shop samples. I like to use these small samples quickly so they don’t use expired products.

20170624_102523

For body and hair, I packed a small bar of soap, taken from a hotel I previously visited. The Dove Advanced Hair Series samples were from a subscription box. Next, I have two shampoo bars from LUSH. I love these shampoo bars because they don’t leak and get messy, they are made from natural ingredients, and they work great. Next two are hand creams which are always needed when traveling. In the small plastic container is my charcoal tooth powder. Lastly is my new hair love, Marrakesh OIL.

Pictured from left to right.

Heimish All Clean Balm

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

Amore Pacific Treatment Cleansing Oil

Tatcha Purity Cleansing Oil

Tatcha Polished Rice Enzyme Powder

GLAMGLOW Youth Cleanse

Dr. Belmeur Toner

Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream

Dr. Belmeur Alto Salt Cream and Moisturizer

Cover FX Custom Infusuion Drops C + Lemongrass

Lumen Eye Gel

TonyMoly Panda Dream Eye Stick

Yes, I have multiple makeup removers, cleansers, and treatments. I pack this way because I know I am going to use up at least half of the products within the two-week span. Some of these products are at the end of their product life so I knew I had to use them up soon.

20170624_124826

Next to pack are my makeup items. For the two weeks, I decided to pack at least two of every kind of product. Two foundations, highlighters, concealers, eyeshadow pallets, blushes and so on.

20170624_125313

All of my makeup products fit perfectly in my Thirty-one cosmetics travel bag. I recommend people find their perfect cosmetics travel bag.

By the end of the trip, I was able to use up and trash a little over half of the skincare products just like I had planned. Do you have a favorite travel bag you need for all of your travels? Let me know in the comments!

Product Empties: June 2017

Product empties for June. Let’s review and see if I will use these again.

Green Light = Yes purchase again

Yellow Light = Maybe under certain circumstances

Red Light = Nope, not for me

Skincare

Goodal Trans Foam Cleansing Oil: A gel-like consistency. Not oil. It cleaned my skin from makeup really well. Green Light

Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner: I first started using this product by patting it on my skin. But then I found that I like it best wiping it with a cotton pad. Yellow Light

Tony Moly Goat milk Moisture Toner: I loved how this toner helped to moisturize my skin, almost like an emulsion but thinner. Green Light

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum: Almost sticky gel to help exfoliate your skin. I couldn’t use it regularly to make a difference in my skin. Red Light

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe Herbs and Rosewater: I loved the smell of this. It was perfect for daily use. Green Light

Caudalie Vinoperfect Moisturizer and Radiance Serum: Got this for free from Sephora as a birthday gift. It worked nicely and didn’t give me any bad skin. Yellow Light

Erborian Bamboo Eye: This was promising, a matte moisturizer for your eye area. It didn’t work for me. I was super dry and had to layer it with another moisturizer before I gave up on it. Red Light

Skincare continued

Seacret Clarifying Mud Mask: This is a gentle mud mask that doesn’t dry all crusty. Yellow Light

Lush The Sacred Truth: Oh yes, I love this mask. I love most of the fresh masks from Lush. Green Light

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask: A black peel-off mask to help pull out impurities. Doesn’t work well at all! It will take a while to dry and doesn’t pull out half of my impurities. Red Light

Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration and Firming Serum and Cream: I recently purchased the Tatcha set from TJ Maxx for a crazy discount. I needed to try it asap before it expired. So, I love it. It is so gentle but helped to keep my skin clear of blemishes. Green Light

The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Wipes: Love! Green Light

These sheet masks I reacted to and got a pimply rash on my face if I kept it on longer than 5 minutes. Red Light

Bath & Bodyworks Aromatherapy Eucalyptus Spearmint Body and Shine Conditioner and Body Wash Foam Bath: The conditioner gave me the best smelling hair that lingers. But it didn’t condition it so well. The body wash smells the same but I love that it is a gel formula. Red Light for the conditioner & Green Light for the body wash

Bath & Bodyworks Japanese Cherry Blossom Golden Sugar Scrub: Bought this on sale and chose this scent because I like the lotion version of this. Found out that I don’t favor the scent as a sugar scrub. Yellow Light

Destiny Boutique Charcoal Facial Detox: I tried this as a face wash but found that it was too slippery. I ended up using this up as a body wash. My body scrub ended up turning black but whatever! I didn’t want to wait. Yellow Light

H2o Plus Spa Sugar Scrub: I love this stuff. I usually only find it at Ross. Green Light

Toms deodorant: This is the only natural deoderant I have quick access to. I have used natural deoderant (or aluminum free) for almost five years. I chose to change my deoderant because I was having issues with sweating and irratation. Ever since I have changed, I have less sweat and less irratation. Green Light

Victoria’s Secret Scandalous Fragrance Wash and Lotion: I got this as a part of a gift set. don’t like these but I do like the scent. Red Light

Nature Republic Aqua Cream: This was supposed to be good for oily skin. I just couldn’t continue using this because it was too fregrant and super sticky. Red Light

Maybelline Dream Cushion: This worked out nicely for me. BUT! You get half of the product for an expensive price (for drugstore). One more issue I have with this is the fact that you have to keep opening the product with the sponge. I felt like it turned bad because of exposure to the air and bacteria. Red Light

Maybelline FIt Me Foundation Stick: I used this as a contour stick but found that it was blending away and not showing up to make a difference in my look. Red Light

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip: Love this product, but this one just got bad and expired. Green Light

I finally went through my nail polish and moved it from storage. I swatced everything and found that these are not my favorite colors or have gone bad and just don’t work.

Thanks for checking out my post!

B-Tox Tea: Day 1-14

fullsizeoutput_245

Hey all, a few days I posted about starting the Queen B Tea Routine for an overall healthier lifestyle. I figure I start at the beginning of the week because we all like to start fresh each week, right? So here I go!

fullsizeoutput_248

Here is the info found on the B-Tox Tea Weight Management label.

Queen B N14 B-Tox Tea is created from the highest quality ingredients. Its carefully selected ingredients have nutritional benefits to assist in weight management whilst enhancing overall wellbeing.

Recommendations: Before you begin your B-Tox take photos of your body from the front, back and side. Once you complete your B-Tox, Take the same shots again and compare the results! We would love to share your B-Tox journey with you, so feel free to send your results to us at queenbhq@gmail.com (you may stay anonymous when doing this).

Directions: Steep 1 teabag in a cup with 200ml of boiling water for up to 8 minutes. You may use a strainer or infuser, or you may consume the loose tealeaves. Recommend 1 cup each night befoer bed, (effects occur 12 hours after drinking tea).

Ingredients: Cassia angustifolia dry leaf, crataegus pinnatifida fruit, alisma orientale tuber, plantago asiatica seed, nelumbium speciosum leaf, Hordeum vulgare fruit*, citrus aurantifolia fruit and cassia tora seed. *contains gluten.

fullsizeoutput_246

I can tell you I was surprised when the directions said to steep up to 8 minutes. I purchased this tea a few years ago and it was so potent, that the directions stated to steep up to one minute. My guess is that they changed the ingrediants or the potentcy for their customers. To me, it smells the same but the taste is not as strong (from what I remember). I steeped the tea bag on top of a strainer for about five minutes. We shall see how these next two weeks go!

Queen B Tea Routine

I have decided to try the complete Queen B Health Pack, found on the Queen B Official website. I want to start including healthier drink options into my diet and I thought a daily tea would be a great way to start! The description of each tea and steps were taken from the website.

This pack includes:

  • Day 1 – 14: DETOX (B-Tox): 14 DAY
    • NIGHT: Tea that aids in weight management, digestion, increasing the metabolic rate and suppressing appetite.
  • Day 15 -16: Rest
  • Day 17 – 30: SKIN: 14 DAY
    • Tea that helps cleanse your complexion by eliminating dry skin, blemishes, and scars; whilst replenishing collagen and elastin back into the skin.
  • Day 31 – 32: Rest
  • Day 33 – 42: ANTI-OXIDANT: 10 DAY

    • Tea that relieves PMS/menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and itchiness, whilst balancing hormones to reduce mood swings. (If you don’t experience menopause or PMS, it is still a great tea to help your immune system- or a fabulous gift for over 50’s)!
  • Day 75 – 76: Rest
  • Day 77 – 90: SHRED: 14 DAY
    NIGHT: Tea that aids in weight management to help shred, define and tone.

 

20170523_171422

I have bought and tried the B-Tox Tea before. Because it is coming from Australia (then to Hawaii) it took close to a month to get to me. It comes in tea bags with no strings. The directions are to steep it in hot water for up to one minute. You may have to try steeping it for 30 seconds in your first attempt because it can get very potent.

The first time I tried it, I steeped it for one minute, drank the whole tea. The next morning, I was running to the bathroom constantly. After I got used to the tea, I would only go to the bathroom twice and I was good for the day. I’ll give you all an update after I finish my first step of the cleanse.

Weekend Pamper Routine

I have been dealing with some stressing times so this past weekend I decided to go back to my weekly pamper routine. I used to make it a very important part of my weekend to spend at least 2 hours relaxing and trying multiple masks.

fullsizeoutput_239This week, I was able to find pore strips on sale at my local Walgreens so I was able to do my multi-step mask routine.

Step 1: 3D Crest White Strip

This was a sample of the Crest whitening strips. Surprisingly it did not make my gums or teeth sensitive during or after treatment. I saw some superficial results and that was nice.

Step 2: Sephora Mask

This clay mask helps to draw out “impurities” and bring them to the surface of the skin. Once it is dry, I rub the mask off into a trash then rinse it off with water. I usually look like I’m wearing a Halloween Zombie Face but it’s all in the name of beauty right!

Step 3: Pore Strip

Since I brought everything to the surface, I then use a pore strip to actually pull out all of the gunk! Yes, to me it is satisfying to see everything out and on the pore strip! Want to see? Click through the slideshow. Squeamish? Skip over 😀

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Step 4: GLAMGLOW Gravity Mud

Usually, my next step would be a cool pore mask or one to tighten my pores, after all I put them through. But this time I decided it was time to use up more of the GLAMGLOW mask. If you have read my other review articles you would know that I don’t favor this mask. But it was too expensive to toss so I will use it up.

Step 5: Moisturizer

This was not pictured, but I know the importance of moisturizing. So,

I let it rest with some nutrient rich moisture.

Do you have a weekend pamper routine? I’d love to hear about it. Comment down below your favorite pamper products! 😀

Product Empties: April 2017

Product empties for April. Let’s review and see if I will use these again.

Green Light = Yes purchase again

Yellow Light = Maybe under certain circumstances

Red Light = Nope, not for me

fullsizeoutput_1c6

Clean it Zero: I like the thick texture and it helps to break down my makeup. This does not always get my mascara off and I would go in with another cleanser to get it all. Don’t open your eyes while you use this, it can sting 😣. Yellow Light

Nature Republic Jeju Sparkling Mud Cleansing Cream: Very moisturizing and a nice way to get off light amounts of makeup. Dry skin people will like this one. Red Light

Glamglow Super Cleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser: I was pleasantly surprised to like this product. It was a thick dark cream that got a little foamy while washing with water. It helped my oily skin, and I would purchase this again. Yellow Light

Nature Republic Fresh Herb Snail Cleansing Foam Snail: This was cheap. It left my skin squeaky clean. But also left my eyes stinging. Red Light

fullsizeoutput_1c7

Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off: It was a gentle scrub. People with sensitive skin will like this. Red Light

Skin Food Sesame Hot Mask Wash Off: A gentle scrub that warmed parts of my face. I could only feel the warmth on my nose and around my lips. Red Light

Glamglow Supermud Tingle Exfoliate Treatment Mask: Yes I tried the hyped product. It did help to bring the junk in my pores out to the surface, but I still had to get everything out with a pore strip or something similar. I will only repurchase it if is on sale. Yellow Light

Lush Rosy Cheeks: Love this. Its price is right. Helps calm my skin when it gets red or irritated by other products. I know I can rely on this. I will repurchase. Green Light

fullsizeoutput_1c8

Fresh Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream: Love this! Gel eye moisturizer that is light enough to wear under my makeup but moisturizing enough to solve my undereye problems. I will definitely repurchase. Green Light

Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins: This was nice but I didn’t see a difference in my skin. I guess it is more of a preventative measure. I might repurchase this again. Yellow Light

Blithe Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans for Multi activating & Lifting: Within the first week I saw a difference in my acne red spots.  It lasted for about six weeks. Then after that, I couldn’t see improvement. I don’t know if it was because I was trying different skin care products that affected it. Yellow Light

Bath & Bodyworks Aromatherapy Stress Relief Eucalyptus Tea Body Cream: I really like this calming scent. Plus it moisturizes well enough for me. Yellow Light

There you have it. A short review of products that were used up well. Let me know if you too feel awesome after using up beauty products!

Makeup Declutter: Concealors & Primers

Safe to say for people who have a collection of makeup products, we keep it past the expiration date! But using expired makeup could lead to skin problems like a pimply rash or eye irritation. Let’s all strive to go through our collections twice a year.

fullsizeoutput_178

Primers

J. One Jelly Pack: This is an interesting primer. It squeezes out like clear glue. It is super tacky. I feel my skin very firm when I use it but have not used it enough to see if I love it.

Murad Oil-Control Mattifier: After trying a deluxe sample of this I was hooked! It feels comfortable on the skin and helps to keep my skin looking natural and not dehydrated, while still mattifying. I will continue to use and repurchase this.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter: I had no real intention of using this because I thought it wasn’t going to work for my oily skin. It was purchased with a Becca set including other fun products I wanted to try so it was a surprise when this worked well for me. It smells nice and gives a pretty sheen to the skin. I use it under my light to medium coverage foundation.

Benefit The Pore-fessional: This product does not work for me. It feels nice on the skin and helps to fill in pores but it tends to make me more oily throughout the day!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance: One of my favorite eyeshadow primers around. It smoothes out my skin and keeps my eyelids a comfortable matte. I am never able to even complete a deluxe sample before it starts to go bad. So it seems I need to replace it now before I start getting eye irritations.

 

fullsizeoutput_172

Concealers 

Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer MediumThin consistency, smells like artificial coconuts and blends well. It is a good color to put on my red spots around my cheeks and chin. I do not use if for color correcting (I don’t like using too many layers) but it does work nicely. I cannot use this under my eyes because it separates throughout the day.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer Med-Light NeutralFavorite! This color is perfect for me and under my eyes. It is neutral, so it covers discoloration under my eyes but doesn’t brighten (too much). I can blend this easily with a sponge or just my fingers. I will continue to use this and repurchase.

Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer NeutralizerI used this in another color and loved it for travel. It is so easy to blend and a thin consistency. However, this was not my color. I will get rid of it.

Benefit Fake Up 02 MediumDespite my oily skin, I have dry under eyes and this is so moisturizing! I love it for my minimal makeup days when I don’t need perfectly matte skin.

Boo-Boo Cover-Up Concealer: Got this in a monthly subscription box. I never would have tried it otherwise but it is great. It is creamy and covers “imperfections” well.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector: This pot cream is very easy to use. One little touch of my finger spread to another finger and it is just enough to spread over both under eyes.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-aging Waterproof Concealer: A light salmon color to conceal dark under eyes. This is thick and creamy. I need to play with it more, but I am willing to part with it.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer: This is a darker salmon color to conceal dark under eyes. Again, thick and creamy. I am willing to part with it.

Today I wasn’t very successful because most of these products are reasonably new. I am getting rid of the Pore-fessional and replacing the Shadow Insurance with a new one. I am tossing the Maybelline Age Rewind and then trying both It Cosmetics Concealers to see what I want to do with them.

Are you purging parts of your collection? I’d love to hear about it! Comment below to let me know how the process is going for you.

Face Mask Collection

If you are like me, you wonder what other people are obsessing over when it comes to skin care, but you are also too shy to ask. Well, there is no need to be shy/shame to ask me! I have tried a bunch of different facial masks, the good, the bad, and the meh!

fullsizeoutput_15f

Clay Masks: I like to use these kinds of masks because they can help with my oily situation, pull out dirt and junk, and encourage blood flow.

Seacret Mineral-Rich Clarifying Mud Mask: This mask is great because of its ingredients. It has helped to heal my acne but now I use it as a quick in-shower mask.

Sephora Clay Mask: I love using this in place of the famous GLAMGLOW mask. I know when it’s completely dry when it turns white and out helps out keeping my blackheads to a minimum.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay: This is best for my DIYers out there! Use this clay for face and body. You can use it with Apple Cider Vinegar or just add water. This clay is da bomb at pulling out all the junk from your pores! You can literally feel your face pulse. Just buy it.

Loreal Pure-Clay Masks: I’ve only used these once but they worked well for me. Plus, they are very affordable! I got mine at Walgreens on sale.

H2O+ Sea Mineral Mud Mask: I have used this once and I like that there are minerals in this mask. I will be using this as my in-shower mud mask once my other one is used up.

Tony Moly Painting Therapy Pack in SOS Care Pink Color Clay & Brightening White Color Clay Masks: I have not tried these just yet but they look perfect for multi-masking!

fullsizeoutput_161

Peel-off Masks: I use these masks to pull out dead skin or anything clogging my pores.

Freeman Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel-Away Clay Mask: I have not used this one just yet, but it was very affordable. I hope it works for me.

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask: I have almost used this all up. Sad to say it was not worth the price. It does not pull out everything I need to be pulled out. I will be getting rid of this one.

GLAMGLOW Gravity Mud: This is the mask that turns silver, then you peel it off. I guess I don’t have gravity issues for me to see a difference when using it. I haven’t figured out if I am going to toss it or give it away.

fullsizeoutput_162

Extra: Here are some extra masks that don’t fit in the other categories.

Caolion Blackhead Steam Pore Pack: This is a nice warming mask. I use this to help open up my pore before a clay or peel off mask.

Caolion Pore Original Pack: This mask is used to tighten pores. I use this after a clay or peel off mask.

Tony Moly Egg Pore Mask: A fun mask. I mean look at the packaging, it is in egg form! This has a whipped or mousse consistency but will apply as easy as a clay mask. Another kind of mask to tighten pores.

COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask: An overnight mask to moisturize the skin. I like most of my COSRX products, but this one is not as moisturizing as I had hoped. I think it’s because this brand doesn’t use many harsh ingredients so to them, less is more.

Blithe Patting Water Pack Soothing & Healing Green Tea: I have used this a few times but put it away because I needed more room on my shower counter. I wet my face, then splash about 1/3 capful and repeat till I use a whole capful.  So far I like it and believe if I use it regularly, it can help my complexion.

Banish Pumpkin Enzyme Masque: I like the natural and honest ingredients and I can feel and see a difference. When I use this, my face gets tingly and a little flushed. That is the point! It gets my blood flowing to help break up my red pigmentation.

Boscia Sake Bright White Mask: I have not used this yet.

Bliss Steep Clean Spa-Powered Pore-Purifying Mask: I have not used this yet.
Wow! What a collection. In all honesty, I think I also have a weird addiction (not really addiction) to using up a product. I just love seeing that I have accomplished using up a product. I know it is very wasteful, to have so many products. I am trying to be better.

Comment below if you have ever used any of the products mentioned, or what is/are your favorite product(s). Also, do you want to know more about a mask I have been using? Let me know!
