This is that post once a month where I talk about all the beauty related products I’ve used up during November and this month there are ALOT! I rate each one with my BEE icons. BUZZ Off, Positive BUZZ, or BEE Shopping and since we’re in the Christmas shopping season, a BEE Merry rating if the product would make a great gift for someone on your list. Leave me a comment below one what product(s) you used up lately.
e.l.f. Studio Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths contains 20 moistened cloths. They do a good job of removing makeup, including mascara and eye liner. Usually I use these for cleaning up my vanity, hands, and swatches when playing with my makeup, but I have used them on my face and they do well. Since they are so affordable, I highly recommend purchasing some packages the next time e.l.f. has a 40-50% off sale.
e.l.f. illuminating eye cream is hydrating, but I need an eye cream with anti-aging ingredients. This would be more suitable for ladies under age 30.
bcbud skin care Hemp Brightening Facial Cleanser from Carapex is a cleanser I would consider repurchasing. I enjoyed everything about the travel size I received as a gift with purchase from Carapex.
sample of Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Micro-Sculpting Cream Moisturizer was only enough for one use so I don’t feel comfortable giving it a rating.
sample of Avon Anew Reversalist Complete Renewal Day Lotion SPF 25 was only enough for one use so I don’t feel comfortable giving it a rating.
travel size Avon Anew Vitale Night Cream and Day Cream SPF 25 were both very nice moisturizers. I would repurchase the travel sizes again the next time I need to travel. These would be great stocking stuffers for the skin care lover in your life.
deluxe size sample of Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry Scrub Stick didn’t have enough exfoliants for my liking. I prefer more grit in a lip scrub. I wouldn’t go out of my way to repurchase this, but if it came in a value set or as a gift I would use it again.
Landeva Organic sample of Argan Oil & Shea Butter Facial Balm reminded me how much I enjoy this product. It’s so emollient on the skin during colder weather. I’m going to purchase a full size with my Christmas money.
Landeva Organic sample of Detox Clay Mask is a powder that you need to mix with a liquid (I used water) before applying to your skin. This was just too much work and messy for me. It worked alright as a mask, but nothing life changing. I wouldn’t buy this product.
Nail Buffer from I have no idea which company. Sorry! I’ve probably had it for years.
St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub travel size was really good as a treat while away at a conference. This has alot of grit so I suggest only using it every other day. I got at least 5 uses from this tube and I’ll pick up another next time I see it on sale for $1.00. This would be a great stocking stuffer.
FRAGRANCE sample of Giorgio Armani Si includes cassis nectar, modern chypre, and light blond wood. 50mL is $95 and 100 mL is $130 so I’m giving this a Positive BUZZ, and a Christmas BEE giving rating.
Simply Lavender Soap containing goats milk purchased from Whispers of Eden Gift Shop in West Lorne, Ontario. This makes a great stocking stuffer or a nice treat for yourself.
sample of Nivea In-Shower Body Milk I’m glad I got to try, but I don’t like it enough to purchase the full size. I didn’t find it hydrating enough for my psoriasis so I still needed to apply body lotion
travel size Secret Clinical Invisible Solid in the Completely Clean scent Anti-Perspirant worked well, but I don’t require clinical strength. I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase this, but would use it again.
Neutrogena Therapeutic T-Gel Shampoo is something my dermatologist recommended three months ago. I haven’t noticed any improvement in my scalp psoriasis but it hasn’t gotten worse so I’ve already started a new bottle.
