It's time to go through my trash! Well, not my kitchen trash can. This is my HBA trash can. No smelly leftover food.
I finished a travel toothpaste and a deodorant. To all the people that see me, pass me, speak to me in a day...you are welcome. I also finished a trial size Laneige Water Bank Essence EX. I love it! Today, yes today, I am running to the store to pick up a full size. I won't go into too much detail because I plan on spending an entire post detailing my love for the Laneige products that I've been using.
You will always see face wipes in my HBA trash can. I tried to go without them, thinking that face oils and cleansers would become my BFF. I just like wipes as my first line of defense! So, you will keep seeing them in my empties. I finishes a Dickinson's face wipe that I got free in my Influenster Sunshine Vox Box. They were nice. They smell a bit medicinal (witch hazel does that!) but I can get over that. Even so, I'm not sure that I'll buy them. Just because I already have a fave.
I also finished a pack of Simple Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes. It's fine but that's it. It's not amazing or exciting or even super good. I find that I'm not moved by any of the products that Simple makes. They are fine but that's it. The price point is ok but other products in the same price point work better.
As always, I moisturized my hands this month. I mentioned a while back that I have a ton of lotions (link to that post here!). Well, I am whittling them down. I finished a Pink Chiffon Moisturizing Hand Cream from Bath & Body Works. It smells really good! It's another candy scent and you know I love my candy scents! The OPI Avojuice lotion in Ginger Lily is from Ulta. It smells really nice but it's pretty watery. I liked the fact that it fit in my little purse. I don't like the fact that it did not moisturize at all.
I used a Lush Rose Jam bubbleroon ($6.25). It was very sweet, it smelled good and it "bubbled up" the water really well. Worth buying it again. I also threw my Sugar Berry Shortcake foaming hand soap from Bath & Body Works into the mix. It smelled good, very sweet, very spring/summery. And I finished a lavender scented bag of Epsom Salt from Dollar Tree. I will always have this in my bathroom. It is good for a nice soak after a hard day or a hard work out. I normally add a drop or two of lavender oil into the water to punch it up.
And last are my bath products. I have whittled down the overstock of bath products that I owned. I finally feel like I can buy a bath wash and not feel guilty. I finished a Caress Fine Fragrance Elixir Bath Wash in Scarlet Blossom. It was nice but really fragrant. I know many people like that but it was a bit too much for me. It lathered nicely but the color scared me (and my white towels). I also finished an April Bath & Shower gel in Blackberry & Lilac scent from Dollar Tree. I really liked the scent. It was fresh and light. It didn't lather worth crap though. I hate that cause I wanted it to but, oh well!
Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin from Bath & Body Works was a super sweet, cinnamon pumpkin scent (as the name suggests). It's nice and warm and perfect for the fall. But, I was using this in summer. I was kinda over it. I would buy it again but maybe in a mini.
I can't remember when I got this Lemon Pomegranate Shower Gel from Bath & Body Works but I want more! This smelled soooo good. It lathered well and I just wanted to eat it! I'm on the hunt people. I'd pay full price for this one. Yaaaaas! The Ulta brand Beauty Smoothy in Lollipop Twist, noooooo. It didn't have a great smell and it didn't lather well at all. It was a 3 for $10 "deal" that I will never take advantage of again. Bath gel fail. Oahu Coconut Sunset mini shower gel was yummy. It smelled lightly tropical and was nice for spring and summer. My Avon Naturals Vibrant Orchid & Blueberry hydrating shower gel smelled good for spring and summer as well. It lathers well too.
And now the green empties bucket is empty! What did you empty this month? Will you purchase it again?
