Products we used up in January

Dior Forever Invisible Retouch Powder, shade #001: This was a product I received as gratis over a year ago when I worked for Dior. I thought it was decent enough that I used it all the way up, but I confess it was a chore for me - this is not even close to my favorite powder for setting or blotting makeup. I would not repurchase it.

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid: reviewed here.

Not pictured because I didn't see it in my "used up" drawer until after I took the pictures: another Maybelline Define-a-Brow pencil in Dark Blonde. Still love it! Reviewed here.

Anthony Logistics for Men Glycolic Facial Cleanser: Boyfriend used this up. He didn't love it: he says he doesn't think it did any more for his skin than rinsing it with water would. He liked the scent but  felt it left a residue on his face, which he found unpleasant. This was a Sephora Beauty Insider birthday gift, and he will not buy one to replace it now that it's gone.

Neutrogena Night Calming Makeup Removing Wipes (lavender package): reviewed here.

Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes (blue package): as I've said in previous posts, I don't use these on my face, only for swatching (for which they work wonderfully).

Clinique Take the Day Off eye makeup remover (GWP): reviewed here.

Philosophy Mangos and Cream 3-in-1: When I first smelled this, I LOVED it and HAD to have it. However, as with many Philosophy scents, the bottle is so huge that I got a little tired of the scent by the time I had used it up 75% of the way through. That last little bit took me forever! :) I do like the fresh mango scent of this, though, and would probably enjoy it more in the summertime.

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk: Honestly... meh. I used this up because I found it cleaning out my bathroom and figured I might as well - fortunately for me it was almost empty when I found it, because I don't like it nearly as much as my Batiste dry shampoos (the blonde color or the blush scent). Its spray is so fine that I feel like I have to spray it a ton more than the Batiste ones to achieve the desired effect... ain't nobody got time for that!

Batiste Light & Blonde Dry Shampoo: reviewed here. I quite like this, though I think I will repurchase the blush one in the future rather than the blonde... if I ever get golden highlights or in general end up with warmer-toned blonde hair, I would repurchase the blonde.

And now I've typed the word "blonde" so many times that my brain is convinced it's no longer a real word and I must have spelled it wrong. Bedtime for Kristina!
