Trash Stash: November 2015

With last month’s legendary trash Stash, this month yielded a much smaller amount of empties.

I’m most proud of completing up that bit pot of Laura Mercier powder!

Laura Mercier trick Brightening Powder – $30 for 4g (Sephora)
This bit pot of wonderful powder took me three years to finish! (I noted that I bought it Dec 7, 2012 during the VIB spend $50 as well as get $20 off coupon). I utilized this powder to set my under eye area almost every single day.  It provides a bit of illumination (tiny bit bits of shimmer) as well as sets my concealer – as well as it doesn’t looks cakey or dry. now that it’s gone from my life, I miss it a lot! I am now trying to utilize up my MAC Prep + Prime transparent completing Powder as well as I don’t like it as much – it makes the eye area look dry as well as crepey. I just opened the e.l.f. High meaning Powder (which has been sitting unused in my stock for the past 2 years!) as well as it’s just ok… it’s a nice powder however not as illuminating as the LM for the under eye area. next up, I’m going to bust open the Nars Light Reflecting loose setting Powder (also unopened in my stash) to see exactly how it fares. bottom line: the LM powder was worth every cent as well as I will definitely repurchase (perhaps utilizing THIS year’s VIB coupon? )

Bourjois volume beauty Max Mascara – $21 for 10ml (Shoppers medication Mart)
I’ve not come across a Bourjois mascara that I didn’t like as well as this is no exception. It provides an remarkable amount of volume while managing to not evaluate down the lashes. It likewise doesn’t smudge on me. The only slight negatives of this mascara is that it is rather wet at first as well as with such a big wand, there’s danger of getting the mascara on my eyelid when applying (this diminishes as the mascara dries out over time). It is likewise a bit clumpy however nothing that can’t be remedied with a metal lash comb. I likewise like that this mascara can be developed up as well as it doesn’t create spidery lashes. The packaging is likewise top notch – there’s a clicking system so I can tell it’s closed.  I got this mascara as a part of a set – I’m not sure if I’m willing to pay $21 for a mascara, I’m as well spoiled with Cover woman Lashblast.

Simple Cleansing Micellar Water – $10 for 198ml (drugstores)
I was excited to try this micellar water that has been getting rave reviews.  I think about myself somewhat of a connoisseur of micellar waters as well as this just didn’t online as much as the hype for me. It’s rather soapy as well as left a residue on my skin. It likewise doesn’t clean as thoroughly as other micellar waters I’ve utilized – rather than lifting residue off my skin, it smears it around.  I bought this on sale so I’m not as well upset.   It is rather gentle so I can see this being a great choice for those with sensitive skin.

Kibio Suncare deal with lotion SPF 50 – $22 for 40ml
This expired last November.  But I was persuaded I’d make utilize of it on my hands or other areas besides my deal with – it’s just much as well emollient as well as thick.  It likewise leaves a strong white cast on the skin.  I did like that it was 100% mineral sunscreen with a high SPF.  Kibio was a defunct brand had by Clarins – it focused on natural as well as organic components in its formulations.  There are a few Kibio products that I truly like including their facial moisturizer as well as clay mask.  When shoppers cleared this brand out in early 2013, I stocked up on a few products as well as this was one of them – I believe I bought this at 50% off.

GarraudBIO comfort Nourishing Hand cream – $24 for 50ml
I got this on clearance at Rexall. I liked that it has natural components as well as was made in France. I got it for something like 75% off. It’s a great hand cream – not as well greasy as well as not excessively fragrant. However, it doesn’t last as well long on the hands, as well as I discovered that as I utilized it, the product ended up being lumpy as well as looked separated.  I assumption that’s the difficulty of natural products – sometimes the structures are weird as well as they may not keep steady as long.
Stash worthiness: 6/10     Repurchase: No

Cake beauty Unsweet Velveteen Hand cream – $18 for 100ml
Cake beauty is understood for their scrumptiously scented body products, however I had to get this unscented version to keep at the office since my coworkers (namely, my boss!) is sensitive to fragrance. The hand cream is extremely high quality, utilizing glycerin, mango seed as well as shea butters – it’s not greasy at all as well as keeps my hands moisturized for a long time. unfortunately this specific version in the Velveteen formula is discontinued, however Cake has a sub-brand called Delectable which is offered in drugstoresas well as there’s an unscented version in that range.
Stash worthiness: 9/10     Repurchase: No (but I may try the Delectable version)

LaCoupe volume Amplified Shampoo – $8 for 750ml (online: as well as
I bought this giant bottle of shampoo during Back to institution promotions in 2013… I lastly busted this bottle open in the summertime time as well as it’s taken me this long to surface it. Granted, I didn’t utilize this shampoo solely however I most likely utilized it 3 times a week. I truly like exactly how this shampoo lathers and the scent is remarkable (smells like a salon? That’s the only method I can explain hair product scents!) However, I don’t discover it to be that volumizing – I requirement to alternating this shampoo with others so it doesn’t evaluate my hair down. Also, within the last 12 months I’ve noticed that LaCoupe (a Canadian brand) has disappeared from all the drugstores. The only location I can discover it now is online.
Stash worthiness: 8/10     Repurchase: Maybe, if I can discover it again

I bought this last year at a cosmetics discount rate pop-up shop called gorgeous Brands, which brought some decent offers on whatever from drugstore to high-end brands. This curl spray does have a tendency to leave my hair crunchy so I have to utilize sparingly. It does odor nice – um, like a salon.

Klorane Soothing Eye cosmetics cleaner lotion – $16 for 100ml (drugstores)
I’d been curious about this product ever since spotting it at Rexall as a “French cult beauty product”. I get a sample of it to try as well as I’m SO pleased I got to try before I bought since this thing is STINKY. It smells like old woman perfume mixed with bug repellent – as well as the odor lingers too. While it is efficient in eliminating all eye makeup, it’s rather a greasy formula as well as leaves a residue on my skin. It was a disappointing experience after being so thinking about this product. The full size is rather costly too.

Vichy Pureté Thermale One step Cleansing Micellar solution 3-in-1 – $20 for 200ml (drugstores)
I such as this micellar water. It’s not the very best available however likewise not the worst. It’s most likely neck as well as neck with Bioderma for me. It cleans residue well as well as has no scent. I’ve had the full size bottle before as well as I do have a full sized bottle of this in my stock which I bought during a 40% off promotion.
