February Empties aka Hoard My Trash!

In an effort to use up things that I have, I started keeping track of products I finished throughout the month. Hoarding my trash in a bag in the bedroom was really weird and somewhat annoying, but I am shocked and impressed at how much I used up!

If you haven't noticed, I LOVE sheet masks! I used up a whole bunch last month. Here's a quick rundown:
  • TonyMoly I'm Real Rice
  • Tosowoong Pure Aloe
  • Tosowoong Pure Green Tea
  • Tosowoong Pure Propolis
  • The Face Shop Real Nature Mung Bean
  • Etude House I Need You Tea Tree
  • Etude House I Need You Olive
  • My Scheming Mandelic Acid
  • My Scheming 7 in 1 Brightening
  • Benton Snail Bee
  • My Beauty Diary Black Pearl
My favorite that I used this month was the My Scheming Mandelic Acid, which I waxed poetic about in my monthly favorites. All time favorites are the Benton Snail Bee, and the Tosowoong Pure Propolis and Pure Green Tea. I'm also fond of the Black Pearl mask!

Here are some cosmetics, samples, and another sheet mask that I forgot to include in the other photo. 
  • Nature Republic Green Tea
  • Alterna Caviar Instant Repair Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Drybar Texas Tea Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Bumble and Bumble Surf Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Tatcha Cleansing Oil
  • L'Occitane Amande hand cream
  • Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel Pads
  • Inglot #77 gel liner
  • MAC Prep and Prime Lip
  • Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack
  • Performance Colors lip balm
  • Tarte Lights Camera Flashes mascara
The Inglot liner I've already repurchased - I didn't really finish it, it's just all yucky and old now, so I got a new one! It was well over a year old and needed Duraline to reconstitute it. The Pumpkin Sleeping Pack was nice, but I hated the overly floral scent of it. I LOVE the Dr. Dennis Gross peel pads, and I use and abuse Sephora promo codes to get them since I refuse to shell out big $$ for them, even though they work really well for me. The Tatcha oil was a solid meh, which was a relief - it's also expensive!

I've already repurchased this Tigi conditioner, and this is my nth bottle of in shower lotion. The Cosrx A-Sol is a product that seems to be hit or miss for a lot of people - it's a definite hit for me. I used it as a toner whenever I sensed some trouble brewing under the skin, and I found that it really kept things in check. I've repurchased this as well!

Look at all these empty jars! I really am impressed with how much I was able to finish. What we have here:

  • Haus of Gloi body emulsion mini in Cozy Sweater
  • Alterna Plumping Strand Expand
  • Haus of Gloi whipped soap in Eggnoggin'
  • Banila Co. Clean It Zero
  • Sunsets and Seas sugar scrub in The Crunch
  • Vice and Velvet lotion in Honey Trap
  • Haus of Gloi whipped soap in Pumpkin Queen
I've gone ahead and repurchased the Alterna plumper because I really do feel that it makes my hair thicker. This was my second jar of the Clean It Zero, but I've picked up a different cleansing oil to try next. I love Haus of Gloi's whipped soap! Eggnoggin' didn't smell like too much, but I am obsessed with Pumpkin Queen, and have about...oh...three or four more jars of that scent in whipped soap form. I wish Sunsets and Seas would restock their sugar scrubs, as I loved the consistency of this one - it was like a pudding, almost.

I'm happy to have made a dent in my huge hoard of beauty products last month. I hope to keep it up this month and find new favorites and get through some eh products.
