I’m quite proud to see that this “Use it Up” post has a more crowded cast of characters.
-Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Gel Cleanser- this is amazing for summer. It rinses off all the makeup, sunblock, oil and grime my face accumulates during the summer.
-Dickinson Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner- A no-frills, effective toner that picks up the traces of makeup after I wash my face. When I use this every night during the summer, I don’t get breakouts on my face. It has a slight witch hazel scent, which I can live with. It’s a toner the whole family can use!
-Ayur Herbal Toner- this was purchased from an Ebay seller because I can’t find it in the U.S. It’s made by an Indian company. It’s a nice toner, but it does leave behind a slight sticky feel. I rinse it off with warm water and my skin fine after that. It has a strong rose scent.
-Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover- While this won’t usurp Almay Oil-Free makeup remover as my favorite, it gets the job done.
-Revlon Colorstay Makeup for Oily Skin in Golden Caramel- I’ve been buying this foundation for years. I used it as a concealer this past summer. It works best as my winter shade, but I find that if I am very careful and use lots of sunblock and stay out of the sun as much as I can, I can wear it during the summer.
-Benefit Boi-ing Concealer in 04 Medium Deep- I bought this a while back when I finished my MAC Studio Sculpt. It’s a decent concealer, but I do wish it was more budgeproof. I’m guessing my skin is too oily for it.
-Too Faced Shadow Insurance- This is a great eyelid primer! It’s better for my oily lids as a winter primer, but it worked pretty darn well for me during the summer.
-Rimmel Glam’Eyes Mascara- I like this one. It gives my lashes good definition and emphasis. It wasn’t clumpy at all either.
-Makeup Forever Smoky Lash mascara sample- This was decent. I don’t think I had any major issues with it. I have another sample of this I need to use up. I’ll have to use that one up too and write a proper review on it.
Items I Will Repurchase: Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Gel Cleanser, Dickinson Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner, Revlon Colorstay Makeup for Oily Skin in Golden Caramel, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Rimmel Glam’Eyes Mascara. I would potentially repurchase the Neutrogena eye makeup remover if I couldn’t get my hands on Almay Oil-Free.
