So apparently being a beauty blogger entails hoarding your trash for a while and then sharing it with all of your readers! Whenever I explain this type of post to someone who doesn’t blog they always give me the strangest look, like “You store all your trash for a couple of months . . . and then show it to people?” – but it really can be a useful post! You get to see things people have actually used up – a rare thing among beauty bloggers – which gives you a unique look on a product. I have a lot to go through so I’m not going that in depth, mostly just letting you know if I would repurchase or not and my brief thoughts on it.
Kenra Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner: both of these smelled great and did the job, but there are better moisturizing shampoos and conditioners out there for less money. Will not repurchase.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle: I always come back to this one, smells great, super inexpensive and does the job! Will repurchase.
It’s a 10 Keratin leave in treatment: best leave in product out there hands down! Will repurchase.
Nioxin Conditioner 2 for thinning hair: I got this during my post actuate hair loss phase, ok, but not amazing. Will not repurchase.
Batiste Dry Shampoo: I think the three empty bottles speak for themselves here. Will repurchase.
Body and Nails (plus some face wipes!)
Kirkland face wipes: I love these because you can buy them in bulk, not the best out there but does the job well enough. Will repurchase.
Secret deodorant: Not my fave brand, but I think this was on sale or something. Will not repurchase.
Dove Advanced Care deodorant: The best deodorant in my opinion, keeps under arms soft, clear and smelling nice, but not the best for wetness. Like skin care for the underarms. Will repurchase.
Rimmel lash growth: Such a waste of money, don’t even bother with this! Will not repurchase.
Secret clinical strength mini deodorant: Again I think I got this because it was the most appealing mini deodorant, I like to have these in my car if I forget deodorant in the morning. Will not repurchase.
Nivea Lip butter: Very moisturizing but leaves lips with a white cast, smells divine! Will not repurchase.
Seche Vite: Best topcoat hands down. Forever repurchase.
