Trash Talk Tuesday

With my 2 week trip back to the states March came and went so fast I didn’t get a chance to let you all know about the products I emptied.

It’s all good though, just means I have more to share for the month of May.

Let’s get into it!!!!



Mario Badescu – Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea

Price: $7

Use: During my longer flights

Would I Repurchase?  NO. I reaaaallllly wanted to like this spray but I just don’t.  It says it’s supposed to help with dryness but it didn’t. I felt this spray sucked out whatever moisture I was already barely hanging onto. I have used it on more than one trip and the results were always the same, I was left with a dry face. I plan to give this away and hope someone has better luck with it.


Murad – Nutrient -Charged Water Gel

Price: $60

Use: Daily

Would I Repurchase? – YES YES YES!!! Go read What is Going On to find out how I was set up.

So on top of the above, I’m back in the states in Ulta checking out and there at the counter is a basket of mini Murad moisturizers. Originally $19.00 and now $9.50, yeap I bought 4 of those jars. I think I would have gone for 6 or 8 but I told myself to leave some for others. I asked the cashier what was going on with the moisturizers and she was under the impression they were going to stop carrying the line. Which then I started to think Sephora gave me false hope with that ‘notify me’ button. Guess what???? Murad has re-launched the product with different packaging and I guess they were trying to clear out the inventory.

I am not mad about that because I thought I was going to have to start working some overtime if I couldn’t get this moisturizer during the Sephora VIB sales. LOL

This is great for oily skin as it’s oil-free and delivers the moisture needed for your face. I made the mistake of using way too much with my first purchase. Go light on the application as it spreads quite a bit.

Oh yeah, I’m adding a couple of these to a future giveaway so stay tuned to enter. Remember, you have to be subscribed to enter.


Herbivore – Blue Tansy AHA + BHAResurfacing Clarity Mask

Price: $48

Use: Weekly

Benefits: clarifying and cooling mask that improves acne, redness, and pores

This product has the Clean Seal by Sephora which means this product is without:
Sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, triclocarban. All skin care, hair, and makeup brands with the Clean Seal have less than one percent of synthetic fragrances.

Would I Repurchase? Yes – I already have a jar in my skincare cabinet.


Dove – Intensive Cream

Would I Repurchase? – Yes.  My mom put me on to these and I think she bought them from the Dollar Tree or somewhere like that. I do know you can find them at Wal-Mart but I’m sure Dollar Tree has the better deal.

These are perfect for putting on your desk at work, gym bag or travel bag.

Bath & Body Works – Moonlight Path Triple Moisture Body Cream

Price: $13.50

Use: Weekly – at one point daily

Would I Repurchase?  Yes. I have had this body cream for so long and never used. The version I have is yearssss old I’m sure. This body cream has a mixed scent of Jasmine, lavender and soft musk that is the perfect combination that you don’t even have to put perfume on with this. I received compliments about this body cream and other women in my office have gone out and purchased it.




Wet n Wild – Photo Focus Concealer: Dark Cocoa

Price: $3.99

Use: Daily

Would I Repurchase? Yes, I have it in my cart now that I will be checking out once I finish letting you all know about my empties. I feel like I ran out so fast that I was starting to think Wet N Wild didn’t feel my tube properly. I realized though I was on this concealer extra hard. The price you can’t beat and it’s easy to buy over and over.


Home Decor


Bath & Body Works – Eucalyptus Tea Scented Candle

Price: $14.50 (on sale now)

Use: Weekly

Would I Repurchase? Yes. I would repurchase now with it being on sale but I just counted that I have exactly 14 unlit candles and another 5 that I have been keeping in rotation. So I don’t get to buy any more candles. Buy this one for yourself. I burned mine in my bedroom right before bedtime.




Smarty Pants – Women’s Complete Multivitamin

Price: $15-$25 (be sure to shop around) I bought a 2 pack for 29.99 from Amazon and I’ve also seen as high as $25 for one bottle.

Use: Daily (6 gummies) It may seem like a lot but believe me these are so good you won’t care.

Would I Repurchase? Yes. I actually need to add this to my list to order this week. I ordered 2 -2 packs at a time and I am down to my last bottle.


Well there you have it, my empties for the months of March and April.
