March Product Funerals

8:00 AM

Things are looking a little different around here, right? It was time for a change, and I'm digging minimalism lately.

Anyway! This marks the end of several products I really, really loved and a couple I didn't care all that much for. I didn't pay for a single one of these -- I'll just put that out there now. But! Only one of them was a full-sized product, so it's not like I'm being showered with massive goodies all the time. So what went into the beauty product graveyard?
1.) Lush Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo: This stuff is so amazing. It smells like you're washing your hair with, well, honey, and maybe it was just me, but it felt like it treated my dermatitis flare-up. Honey has natural antiseptic properties, so who knows? I'm definitely buying this one when I've finished up my other shampoos.

2.) Lush It's Raining Men Shower Gel: Okay, this is probably considered sacrilege in the blogger community, but I thought it was just... good. I've heard so many people sing its praises that I was basically expecting a heavenly choir to sing a chorus of Ave Maria when I first lathered up, and it fell short of my expectations. Don't get me wrong! I would use it again if I were sent another bottle, but would I buy it? Nope.

3.) Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisterizer: How I will miss you! To be honest, there's still some product left in the tube, but I've had the same one since 2012, and it had oxidized. What was once a perfect match for my deathly pale skin was a very strange, apricoty shade when I applied it this morning. Oops? This is getting repurchased as soon as I'm done with my current foundations. It's incredible.

4.) Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Shampoo: This stuff... Oh, this stuff was a dream come true, and I would kill to just hurry up and finish my shampoos now so I can alternate between this and the honey shampoo. The smell was nothing as amazing as I'd hoped, but after dying my hair ultra dark brownish red and then lightening it back up (it's currently Leeloo orange just for something different) in the space of two months, I swear this stuff is why my hair took to the bleach so well. It's magical.

5.) Temple Spa La La Lagoon Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel: I really, really wanted to love this stuff since it's surprisingly difficult to find a more uniquely scented shower gel made by a cruelty-free brand, but... Meh. It wasn't awful, but it smelled weird to me, kind of like seaweed soap if that makes sense. And it felt gloopy, also not indicative of a fun product to use in the shower.

What have you tried lately?

  2. HAHAHA. I love the title! So clever. Anyway, I took a sniff of the 'It's raining men' and wasn't won over. Although I have been getting into Lush a lot recently the Honey shampoo sounds really nice.
    Great post :)

    1. Thanks! :D Yeah, I honestly have no idea why it's so hyped. The honey shampoo, though... I miss it already!
