Trash Talkin’

Well, I have come to that point where I said no more buying ANYTHING. Clothes, shoes, makeup, hair products…anything that I do not need. I am down to the point where if I’m walking into a store I’m purchasing things to refill and replace, but I am not allowed to buy NEW. You get what I’m saying? So I can buy a pair of black flats if my current pair are worn down, makeup remover wipes, a black t-shirt that has faded or has a hole, and/or toothpaste. Refill or replace the end.

Sooo you know with this new R-U-L-E going to Target is rough and I truly be struggling. I don’t even get a buggy anymore just a handcart feeling out of place.

With me now having to use what I have, I am going to keep these trash talkin’ posts going and it seems that you all enjoy them.

Without further delay…

 

Method Body Wash

Price: $6.99 

Use: Every time I step in the shower

Benefits:

  • Target Clean Line
  • Naturally derived body wash
  • Free of parabens and phthalates
  • Cruelty-Free – not tested on animals

Would I repurchase? Yes. It all started with the Method hand soap. I really liked the way my hands felt after every single wash. While in Target, in between my relocation I decided to try the body wash. I started using the Simply Nourish which is infused with coconut, rice milk, and shea butter. The scent lingers just enough and is not overpowering. After emptying this bottle I went back to Target picked up the same one and pure peace. Pure Peace does have a sweeter fragrance as it is infused with peony, rose water, and pink sea salt. I have never been big on sweeter fragrances so when I went home to visit my parents I left in MY SHOWER (yes after 15+ years of not living home I still claim it) haha. I thennnnn went to Target and bought the Wind-Down and this one is amazing for nighttime showers. Wind-Down has chamomile, starflower, and blue lavender. My fave so far are Simply Nourish and Wind-Down. The last 2 I have to try are Deep Detox and Energy Boost. I’m 100% positive I will be trying out both of those. I’m all for detox and I need something to wake me up in the morning before I get to my coffee, tea, or smoothie.

 

Burt’s Bees – Moisturizing Lip Balm (Cucumber Mint)

 

Price: $3.39 

Use: Every morning

Benefits:

  • Target Clean Line
  • 100% natural ingredients
  • Free of parabens and phthalates
  • Cruelty-Free – not tested on animals
  • Soothing and Moisturizing

Would I repurchase? Yes. I repurchased a twin pack during the holidays. I use this every morning after my skincare routine, it’s actually a part of it. I can’t leave out the bathroom and continue getting ready without sliding this across my lips. It leaves my lips moisturized until I am ready to apply my lipstick or lipgloss over it. I don’t ever apply a lip product without moisturizing my lips properly. This is now my new must-have morning moisturizer. 

 

 

Up & Up Cleansing Wipes – Pink Grapefruit Acne Prone

Price: $8.49 

Use: Every night

Benefits:

  • Removes dirt, impurities, and makeup
  • Target Clean Line
  • 100% natural ingredients
  • Free of parabens and phthalates
  • Cruelty-Free – not tested on animals

Would I repurchase? No. In the description, it says mild grapefruit scent but for me, it was strong. The grapefruit scent mixed with the salicylic acid and alcohol was a lot being so close to my eyes and nose. I’m also not sure these helped with my acne. When I purchased it was 1 pack of 50 and not as a double as pictured so I am glad I didn’t overload on it. I will be back on the search for some makeup removing cleansing wipes.

 

HUM – Skin Heroes Pre & Probiotic Clear Skin Treatment

Price: $40 

Use: Daily

Benefits:

  • Acne/Clearer Skin 
  • Gut support
  • hydration
  • Soil-based and Live Strain Probiotics

Would I repurchase? Yes. I really do think these capsules help with improving my skin and my digestion has improved. These are a bit expensive so I purchase these during the Sephora VIB Sale. I have been interchanging between these and HUM Daily Cleanse.  The Daily Cleanse is almost half the cost.

 

Dermalogica – Special Cleansing Gel

Price: $12 – $62 

Use: Daily

Benefits:

  • Improves oiliness, dryness, and pores 
  • lavender for calming the skin
  • cleans away toxins and debris

Would I repurchase? No. I decided to order the mini after hearing so many beauty junkies give reviews about it, Of course, I went off those who said it really helped improve their skin. Well, it wasn’t my skins fave. It isn’t a bad product but I didn’t see any changes for me. If you aren’t used to soap-free products this can be an adjustment.

 

Bobbi Brown – Vitamin Enriched Face Based Priming Moisturizer

Price: $60

Use: Daily

Benefits:

  • Shea butter
  • Vitamin B, C, & E
  • Improves dryness, oiliness, fine lines, wrinkles

Would I repurchase? Yes. This is my favorite moisturizer. This is another product I ordered during the Sephora sale. I always purchase my skincare on sale.  I still apply a primer as I don’t think it can hold my oily t-zone. One day I will test it out. I have already repurchased, double pack that was on sale during the Nordstrom sale. I purchased 2 for the price of 1. I plan to use 1 for myself and gift another in a future giveaway.

 

Tatcha – Silk Canvasing Primer

Price: $22 – $52

Use: Daily

Benefits:

  • Shea butter
  • Vitamin B, C, & E
  • Improves dryness, oiliness, fine lines, wrinkles

Would I repurchase? Yes. I don’t remember paying $22 for this. I thought I paid $10 for this primer but I guess while being on vacation I was feeling good and thought $22 wasn’t a bad price. I knew I wasn’t ready to invest $52 not knowing just how good it was. It works end of the story. You don’t have to use much and it definitely holds back the oil in my t-zone. I MIGHT MIGHT MIGHT purchase the larger size during the next Sephora sale.  I do have more than one primer in my makeup stash so I know it will last awhile. 

 

ColourPop – No Filter Loose Setting Powder

Price: $10

Use: Frequently

Benefits:

  • weightless
  • does not leave makeup looking cakey
  • No flashback

Would I repurchase? Yes. While I have started to move to pressed setting powders I do like this one. I used this every time I traveled. It’s the right size for my makeup bag and taking up less space. It’s also less expensive so in the case that I left it, I wouldn’t feel bad. In the next Colourpop sale I may order both the pressed and loose and see which I like better. Has anyone tried the pressed yet?

 

Covergirl -Easy Breezy Brow Micro-Fine+Define Brow Pencil

 

 

Price: $6.99

Use: Daily

Benefits:

  • micro fine tip no sharpening needed
  • built-in spoolie brush
  • removes easily at end of day

Would I repurchase? Yes. This is not harsh and applies smoothly while giving a natural look. I like that the spoolie is built in. It lets me know when it’s time to replace my spoolie. I find that I hold onto my spoolies way too long. I have already purchased another to replace this.

 

Sonia Kashuk – Latex-Free Makeup Blender Sponge

 

Price: $5 – 1 / $7 pack of 2

Use: Daily

Benefits:

  • latex free
  • egg like shape to cover your entire face
  • does not soak up foundation

Would I repurchase? Yes. These are the only sponges that I use now. I had to find something other than beauty blenders. I couldn’t make sense paying $20. I buy them in a pack because I do make sure that I replace these often. With how often I apply makeup I replace my sponges every 2-3 months. If you are applying makeup daily I would say 1-2 months and you should be replacing your sponges. Sooo at $20 a pop I had a hard time letting go. Now it’s not as bad and I know at the end of the day it’s only best for my skin to replace them often. 

 

I think this may be the longest empties I have ever done. I told y’all I was going to try and keep it to 5-6 a post but I had to get these all out at once so I can finally throw the products away. Next time we will go back to the regular schedule. 

Until next time take care of yourself. 

 

What are some empties that you like or dislike?
