Products I've Used Up #2

I keep a bag under my desk and every time I finish a product I toss it in there. The clutter in my room has gotten out of hand so it is time to toss the garbage I have been saving. Over the last few month's I have used up another Effaclar Duo from La Roche Posay. I have mentioned this numerous times so all I'll say is if you have problems with breakouts that are not too severe you should give this a try. It is a must have for me and I consistently repurchase it. I also went through a tube of my favourite body lotion, Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing Lotion, a mini bottle of Elizabeth Arden's Eye Makeup Remover which is kind of "meh" and a Dove Invisible Dry Deodorant. 

I also managed to finish a giant bottle of Aveeno's Skin Relief Body Wash which I had for nearly two years so you can imagine how happy I was to squeeze out the last drop. I also finished up the remains of La Roche Posay's Gentle Gel Cleanser which I really enjoyed, Simple's Gel Cleanser which was nice but nothing to write home about, and a mini MAC Cleanse Off Oil which I liked but I prefer balm cleansers over oils so I don't think I will be buying this one again. I could be persuaded to try one of the Shu Uemura cleansing oils though because everyone always raves about those. 

I always run through hair products, especially shampoo and conditioner like they are going out of style because I do not take a less is more approach when it comes to conditioning my hair so I have a hard time spending money on more expensive hair products. I used up the NUME Pure Remedy Repair Shampoo and Conditioner which were definitely not worth a repurchase in my opinion as well as a bottle of Herbal Essences Conditioner which brought me back to elementary school. (Isn't it funny how scents can take you back?) I also managed to use up (very quickly) a tube of L'Oreal's Arginine Resist Mask which was nothing special. I had high hopes for it but I didn't really notice a difference and I won't be purchasing it again. Finally I also finished up a mini bottle of Nexxus Humectress Conditioner which I had in my linen closet for ages. I had received it in a beauty box and had never gotten around to using it. Turns out I really liked it and so once it was finished I headed out to Shoppers to buy a bottle and couldn't find it. Isn't that how it always happens? You find a product you love and then it's no longer available.



  1. Love your video. I am always looking out for new products which are worth trying.

  2. So many products! Ha ha. I need to start writing down which products I like so I remember but I just buy whatever is cheapest or if I get a free sample :p

  3. I love seeing empties videos to find out which products are worthing getting.

  4. I love empties! wondering about the dove deoderant. does it have a funky smell? because I always have hated the smell of roll ons but they are safer then the sprays...hmm. xx. gigi.

  5. I can't be without the Effaclar Duo. It's reduced my breakouts better than any other product ever has and I like how thin the formula is. I want to try more of the range. I've heard the cleansers are rather nice.

    I completely agree with you on your thoughts about conditioner. The more the better! I'm making my way through a 900ml bottle at an alarming pace!
