Bye Bye Loves November and December 2012

Even though I took a brief blogging hiatus, I was still stashing away my empties :) I thought that I better break these up into 2 posts, though so these are all of the products I used up in November & December...

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Facial Towelettes - 10ct. $2.99
I got this little pack in my IPSY Glam Bag back in July and they finally made it into the rotation :)  Click Here for my post with my reviews of everything I got in that Glam Bag.  I really liked the fresh cucumber scent and they did a great job of removing my makeup.  I wish the cloth was textured, but I always say that.  Does anyone else prefer a textured cloth for their facial towelettes?

Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Orange Ginger Hand Soap - 8fl.oz. $5.50
This is still available and Bath and Body works, but repackaged.  It has a bright, citrus fragrance that I like to use in the kitchen or the bathroom.  It is one of my favorites because it is a gender neutral scent.  It is man friendly, one of Mr.BeautyScraps favorites :)  It is also a nice option for those who do not want an anti-bacterial soap.

Wei to go Beauty: Real Clean and Ideal Skin - 
I got this in my September Birchbox. Click Here for a full review and to see everything I got in that box.  Bottom line, I liked the products, but not the packaging. The Real Clean Gelled Oil Cleanser is sold in a package of three .5oz tubes for $26 and the Ideal Skin Perfect Finish CC Cream is sold in a package of three .33oz resealable packets for $30.  They are perfect for travel, I just wish they were also sold in regular packaging.  I would certainly buy the cleanser.  Maybe they will in the future.  They are no longer available on Birchbox.com, but you can find them at Beauty.com.

Physicians Formula Talc Free Mineral Wear Correcting Powder: Natural Beige - $13.95
I obviously really liked this powder.  It even made an appearance in my July Favorites if you want to see what it looked like with product in the pan :) I have combination skin and I have redness in my cheeks.  When I wear something with light coverage, like a tinted moisturizer, I liked using this powder to set it because it also provides light coverage and evens out the redness in my cheeks.  I use a big fluffy brush to apply it because if you use too much it can look powdery/chalky.  I have not repurchased it yet, but I will buy it again next time I catch a good Physicians Formula sale.

Dirty Girl Lip Balm
I bought this in a local shop, but I saw some Dirty Girl items on Amazon.  The packaging wore off a bit after kicking around in purse for a looong time.  I really bought this because the packaging was so darn cute, but it was a good lip balm.  A little bit waxy feeling, but very moisturizing and it lasted a long time.

Love, Chloe Eau de Parfum - 1.7oz $90 Sephora
I gave this one a fair chance, but this scent was not for me. On me, it was too heavy, a strong floral.  I saw great reviews online so it may just not work with my body chemistry.

Friends With Benefits - Massage Bar - 2.3oz. $10.95
I love that LUSH is a green company and tries to make products that don't need packaging, but then I have nothing to photograph once I use it up, lol. So, sorry for the stock photo from LUSH.com. I love LUSH's massage bars!  I use them for massage, but also as a hand and cuticle cream.  LUSH says this one smells like Marigolds and Chocolate.  I'm not sure I could have identified that on my own, but it does have a sweet, but slightly herbal smell, so I guess that is spot on.  It does smell lovely and it is very moisturizing.  I will definitely buy this one again!  


 Mini Candles - Bath and Body Works - 1.3oz. $4.50 each
I used Spiced Apple Toddy and Cranberry Pear Bellini.  I really liked the idea of these mini candles because you can try more fragrances for less money.  What I do not like is that they don't give off a lot of fragrance because they are so small.  I'm going to stick to the larger 3 wick candles.  The scents were both great, though.

Have you tried any of these products?
