Hi Friends!  This is for two weeks.  

 

Kiehls Ultra Facial toner.  I use this one in the winter and switch to Paula's Choice skin balancing toner for the warmer months.

 

ROC Retinol Corexion eye cream, had a replacement ready

 

BigSexyHair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel.  This was okay, replacing with Kristin Ess volumizing mousse

 

City Lips clear plumping lip gloss.  For the price, I didn't feel it did anything magical so replaced with Physician's Formula's new plumping gloss.  I mainly need a good moisturizing lip gloss at night.

 

Soap & Glory Kick Ass foundation.  I really liked this but it has been discontinued.

 

Paula's Choice Shine Stopper.  I mix this in with any primer that I use and it helps me stay shine free for longer.  

 

Gray Away root concealer.  This is a favorite but I got the L'Oreal concealer at Costco which came in a 3 pack.  I like the Gray Away better and will return to it when the L'Oreal is done.

 

Tossed:

Pacifica eyeshadow palette in Pink Nudes.  This is a nice palette but I'm trying to pare down and wasn't using it much.

Happy Friday beauties.  I used up:

 

BBW 1 oz. Spearmint body lotion. Not even sure where I got this size.

 

Colgate travel size toothpaste. Have another.

 

Loreal voluminous mascara.  Replaced with same.  I really do toss these every three months. 

 

Have a a great weekend.  Be safe.

Good morning Beauties!

 

Tossed:

QRx eye reboot - didn't like how my undereye area felt after using this for about a week.

QRx Glycolic toner - I liked the toner but it was just too strong for me.

A couple of Tarte blushes that I won't use.

 

Finished:

Josie Maran sugar lip scrub - love this and it works so well.  Had another one waiting.  Use this at night only so it does last a little longer than expected.  Got a few of these at the holidays when they were a special price but since I"m trying to cut back and find less expensive alternatives where I can, I will be tyring to find a new lip scrub once I"m done with this. 

 

Have a good week ladies!

 

Forgot to add:  I tossed my remaining containers of Josie Maran's sugar body scrub because it made my tub, I think, very slippery. I tried different ways of using it and cut way back on the amount I used but still the tub was so slippery that it scared me.  Just thought that if you are thinking of purchasing it, you should be aware of how slippery the tub gets.

@JudyL  How often were you using the toner?  I am considering the QRx Glycolic Toner but also thinking about the COSRX AHA/BHA Toner.  I already use Tretinoin nightly so i don't want to be guilty of over exfoliating.

The Ordinary's Buffet and Niacinamide.  Backups for both.

@JeanLouiseFinch - I started using it every day at night and was doing, I thought, ok but the burning feeling was just too much.  So tried 3 times a week and it still was bothering me enough that, for me, it just wasn't worth it.  So went back to the Paula's Choice 8% that I was using.  I have't put any AHA on my face though for this week because I wanted to give it a bit of a break before going back to it.

 

If I could get past the burning feeling, I would use it.
