Hello and Happy Friday, Beauties!

I hope that all of you are happy, healthy, and looking forward to the upcoming weekend.

Here is my list for the week:

Dove Beauty Bar 4.25 oz- From by my sink. Replaced with an Olay bar, just for a little change.

Jessica McClintock Perfume 1.7 oz- I seem to get a lot of nice compliments when I wear this...repurchased another.

Peter Thomas Roth Bath Bar 1.75 oz- From by the bath tub. My husband brought this home from one of his trips...nice lather, no scent really. Replaced with a Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Bar.

The Body Shop Deo-Dry Deodorant 1.9 oz- Very effective, lasted seemingly forever. Replaced with another.

Miracle 7 Leave in Mist 5 oz- This is the Sally dupe of It's a 10...but, as a stylist my price is just as good for the real stuff.

Mark Gloss Gorgeous in Showy- Really love this product...a stain and gloss in one. I have another open one to use up.

That's all for me this week, my friends! May you all enjoy a wonderful weekend...keep smiling!!

All the best, Neela

Just this morning I tossed an empty bottle of BBW "Warm Sugar" body lotion -- tomorrow I'll open up the BBW "Cashmire Glow".... or maybe the "Japanese Cherry Blossom." I stock up when they have a sale and usually have a couple backups.

I don't recall using anything up but I did toss my last BE Flawless Definition Mascara. Not sure why I was holding on to it. There was nothing left.

* DH used up his Nexxus shampoo. He's using my castoffs, so it was replaced with some Philosphy Inner Grace or Pure Grace 3-in-1

* DH used up what remained of my 1% All-Trans Retinol. It was replaced with a similar product

* I used up a 32 oz. WEN Fall Ginger Pumpkin Cleansing Conditioner and a WEN 32 oz. Cucumber Aloe Cleansing conditioner - replaced with more WEN from my stash

* I used up a Philosophy Pumpkin 3-in-1 and will finish using up other body washes in the shower before replacing with something else. I have some leftover Philosophy Christmas scents, but am looking for ways to gift them.

* I used up a packet of Kirkland wipes - replaced them with another packet from the inventory.

* Used up a BBW 3-wick candle - replaced it with another one (Tis The Season), but it's almost done, too.

Large size of Walmart's version of Cetaphil lotion--replaced with Aveeno Creamy Oil--for dry legs

Hello everyone, happy Friday!

I managed to use up a few items this week as well....

Shea Terra Organics White Chocolate whipped shea butter: very nice lotion, smelled just like white chocolate, hydrating, but was so thick it took some work to rub it in. Probably not a repurchase for me. Have other STO butters that are easier to work with and just as moisturizing.

Dove Deep Moisture body wash: good product, which I would guess many of us have used. My only beef if getting all of the product out of the bottle once most of the product is used up, but will probably repurchase in the future.

Lush bath bomb in Twilight: love the bath bombs! Had a nice relaxing bath:)

Lush American Cream conditioner: I bought the smallest bottle (3.3 oz), as I had never tried this product before, and I am glad I did. Not moisturizing at all for my hair. Had to follow up with a leave in, just to get a comb through. I actually can't believe I even used it up instead of tossing it!

That is all for me this week. I hope you all have a pleasant weekend, and say prayers for all the Connecticut victims' families.

Here is what I used up in the last four weeks:

N.V. Perricone Eye Area Therapy 0.5oz. - I love that it's a serum and soaks right in. No drying time needed. Replaced with an opened tube of Dr. Denese eye cream.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 5oz. - Bought this on a whim. Not sure if it did anything for my skin but it felt good when I used it after cleansing my face. Not as drying as toners. Too expensive to repurchase.

Philosophy Miracle Worker SPF 55 1.7oz.-Aside from the fact that it's a chemical sunscreen, I actually quite like it. Easy to apply, not greasy, and has antioxidants. Back to Elta MD and JM sunscreens.

Have a good weekend, everyone, and stay safe.
