I am starting a new series on the blog! Whoop Whoop. “Products I’ve Used Up” I will give you my thoughts on the product- price point- where I got it- and if I’d buy it again.
Okay let’s get started. Here are the products:
1. 12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment- $19- Online at UrbanOutfitters.com or Birchbox.com
So this product is a leave in conditioning product that is supposed to have “12 benefits” as the name suggests. It is supposed to detangle, defrizz, help with heat protectant etc. Now I have SUPER unruly hair. like for reals. So this product did help a little bit- but for $19 a bottle I probably can find a drugstore alternative that worked as well. I did find that this particular product didn’t leave my hair heavy or greasy which some leave-in’s do. So someone with thinner more straight hair- this could be a saving grace!
2. Revlon Lip Butter- $5-9- Drugstores/Target/Ulta etc.
I reallllllly like these Revlon Lip Butters. I am not a fan of matte lipsticks. I don’t like the drying aspects. If I could I would wear lip balm everyday, but sometimes the occasion calls for a little lip color. This line is my go-to. Still leaves a moisture on the lips but does add good color pigmentation. I liked this color too- a pale bubble gum pink. Big fan- will repurchase and try other shades.
3. Charity Pot Body Butter- $5 (small pot)- Lush Cosmetics
There isn’t really anything bad I can say about this product. Lush is my OBSESSION when it comes to lotion/skin products. I wish it was a little bit cheaper- but I still will splurge on a body lotion because I hate having dry skin. This pot in particular has a good cause- each pot topper has different organizations that 100% of the profit of the product goes too. For more information check the Lush Website. The product itself is also amazing. Leaves my skin feeling soft for hours. I will keep buying Lush Body butters for a looooong time.
4. Dr. Jart Beauty Balm- $39- Sephora (pictured is the sample size not the $39 size)
So this is a sad story. I got this sample size after a purchase from Sephora. The first time I used it- I thought it was going to be a holy grail product. My skin looked/felt incredible. It was very similar to a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. Gave light coverage and evened out my skin tone (also spf 45!) I was about to go out and buy the full-size right then. I tried it a second time the following day and my skin broke out worse than it ever had since I was in high school. I have pretty sensitive skin, so most times I have to be pretty careful on what I use- and sadly this won’t be repurchased, but I did LOVE it the first time.
5. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer- $6-9- Drugstore/Target/Ulta etc.
This is a holy grail product for me. I love the twist product application and the product brightens my under eyes and doesn’t crease. I usually put this on my under eyes only, but recently have used it to conceal blemishes and redness and it worked like a charm! It also doesn’t leave my skin dry which a lot of concealers tend to do. You need this in your life. I can’t read the color I got on the pen anymore, but I think I got it in “Radiant 320.”
6. CoverGirl Perfect Blend Eye Pencil- $3-5- Drugstore/Target/Ulta etc.
I’ve used this product for quite some time. This is probably my third or fourth pencil. I like these because they help fill in my eye brows and is easy and cheap. I have seen a lot of people raving about Anastasia Brow Whiz pencils but they are $25. I like these and they are easy to find so I will probably stick with them. If someone wants to buy me a nice one… I won’t say no! My color is Mink Brown 115.
7. Garnier Fructis Anti- Humidity Flexible Control Hair Spray- $4-6- Drugstores/Target/Ulta etc.
Hmmm well… I had pros and cons about this product. For one the hairspray was flexible and left my hair manageable and not “crunchy.” It didn’t really give me lasting holding power. So it’s a double edge sword. With my hair I need some hold and that ends up making it crunchy. None the less- this is a nice product and helped manage frizz in the rain, but wasn’t strong enough to hold my hair. This could be my hair though- so I would try it if you need a budget friendly flexible spray!
Well we have come to the end. Sad. Let me know what you think of these types of posts! Thanks friends 🙂
