July Bye Bye Loves: Face Products
In an attempt to keep this short and sweet, I am going to link to my reviews in previous posts if I have already babbled on and on about one of these products already :) Ready? Let's see what face products I used up this month!
E.L.F. Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths - 20 cloths for $3, is a great price so when I saw them at Target I had to buy them :) I'm on a bit of a quest for the perfect makeup removing towelette. I don't quite think that these are my holy grail of makeup wipes, but they are close. They are really moist and I really like the formula. They remove all of my makeup and leave my skin feeling clean with no residue like other towelettes leave behind. They also don't really have too much of a scent, which I like. The only negative thing I have to say about them is that the cloth itself is thin and smooth and I prefer a textured cloth. While my search for my holy grail towelette continues, I will definitely repurchase these.
Weleda Pomegranate Firming Day Cream - Reviewed in my April Birchbox Post
Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream - Reviewed in my June Sample Society Post
Benta Berry G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser - Reviewed in my April Birchbox Post
I didn't buy the full size of any of the above items, but I keep thinking about the Benta Berry Exfoliating Cleanser. I will probably give in and buy the full size soon :)
Dr. Jart Water Fuse BB Cream - Reviewed in my May Birchbox Post
Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in Bronze - Reviewed in my June Birchbox Post
Sephora SPF 20 Tinted Moisturizer - Reviewed in my May Favorites Post I got this sample with one of my Sephora.com orders. It is the only one of the above 3 that I like enough to buy the full size. You can click the link for my full review, but in a nutshell... It is light weight, but also is only light coverage so I have been enjoying it this Summer when I can't stand heavy makeup on my face. I do prefer more coverage, so I will switch it up when the weather cools down.
EOS Lip Balm in Medicated Tangerine - So that is what the bottom of one of these looks like! lol You get a lot of product in there so this lasted me a while. I kept it on my nightstand and would religiously apply it before bed. It is very moisturizing and feels soft on my lips, not waxy at all. I also didn't find it to be "medicated" smelling or tasting. It just smelled fruity like tangerines :) I have a couple of the other EOS flavors? scents? to try out, but I would buy this one again, too. Oh, and it is Petroleum, Paraben, Phthalate, and Gluten Free, is not tested on animals, and does contain Antioxidents, Vitamins C&E, Zinc and Shea Butter, so it is good stuff :)
Buxom Lash Mascara in Black - Reviewed in my May Favorites Post
Here is a bonus shot of he wand. Very nice. I will definitely be buying this one again. I don't really have a favorite mascara, but this is top 3 for sure!
So there are all of my July empties and August is halfway over :/ Sorry I got this up so late.
