Reviews ~ Finished Products Januari 2012

'After so many purchases, you might be expect that I also finish a lot of things. Well, not always a lot, but I do finish things every month. So let's start with the products I finished during Januari.'

'First item I finished is this bodybutter in cocnut sheabutter by my local Dutch Drugstore Kruidvat. In my previously post I talk about the blueberry lychee one. The coconut smells a little heavier, but it's not overpowering at al. The blueberry one has an slight pink color to the consistency, the coconut is just white. I think these bodybutters has an good quality for the price, only 2,50 for 200ml.'

Next up I finished my Essence Refreshing Toner in Grape. It was only 1,99. I used this at least 3 months or so. This is very good for refreshing, but it doesn't much for my skin. The smell is awesome, wich I like, but I don't have the feeling that my skin is that clean, if you know what I mean. The other item I finished was this nailpolish remover from an Dutch store called Action. This remover was 0,98 and it's without acetone. I didn't like this remover. It leaves white rims around my cuticles, and my nails/ cuticles looked very dry after using it. I do prefer an remover with acetone, cause 1) With aceton you don't need to rub hard to get the polish of and 2) I don't see any white rims around my cuticles when I using a remover with acetone.'

'Next up I finished this awesome facecream by Yves Rocher. This is the best facecream I ever used in winter time. It's a little too fat for summer, but it's very good for wintertime. It makes my skin really soft and healthy looking. But there are two cons. First thing is: catalogue price is 35, wich is ridiculous. Mostly Yves Rocher gives you some discount wich means that the price should be mostly 17,50. I got this cream during an awesome deal: I got it as an surprise gift worth 35 in one of my purchases. And I noticed that they give this cream a lot for free during these surprise gift deals. That's an good thing. So if I want to re purchase this, I only need to wait till they give this thing away, cause I don't think of spending so much money for an facecream. The other con is the package. As you might see, I don't get all the product out of the package, there's a little left under the rim of the pot. So I hope that Yves Rocher makes the pot more round in the future, cause every woman wants to get everything out of the package, especially when she should pay the full 35.'

'Another thing I finished this month are two mono eyeshadows by Catrice. First color is Welcome to Miami Peach, wich is discontinued. I don't care that this color is out of the running, cause I really hated it. It was way too shimmery and gives a lot of fall out during applying. Second color I finished is Go Charlie Brown. I believe they discontinued this color too. Not my favorite eyeshadow colors. Catrice mono eyeshadows are only 2,79, but I think I got one free, so it was not a big deal for me. I owned more worse eyeshadows in the past.'

'Next I finished two lipsticks by Catrice. First is one of the old Absolute Moisture ones in Caramel Beige. I really love their old skool Moisture Lipsticks, and it's sad that I finished this one allready. But I still own a couple other colors of the old Moisture lipsticks. I think it's really sad they discontinued these lipsticks. Glad we got some other cool lipsticks in place. The other lipstick I finished is also an Catrice one. It's a lipstick from the Urban Baroque Limited Edition past year, in the color Elisabeth. I have one back up left from this lipstick, so I try to use this color carefully. I have no idea what I payed for these lipsticks in the past, honestly. But I know it wasn't that much.'

'Finally done for this month. Next up I finished an concealer by Manhattan. This brand was discontinued years ago from our local drugstores, so it isn't available anymore. I used this concealer to death, and I wish I had an back up of this. I can't remember the price, but it was defenately an cheap **** product.'

'Lastly I finished this sample of Dove Deeply Nourishing Showergel with NutriMoisture. I think this is an awesome showergel. My skin felt really soft after a shower with this. It also last me a long time- two weeks for 50ml- wich isn't that bad. Only con: the scent. I think I don't like it, it smells too heavy for my taste, and too milky. I can't describe the scent of this. I got this for free in the mail, so I don't know what the price of this product should be.' 

'Finally there. I hope this was a little helpfull. Talk to you later.'
