June Use-It-Up !

Another month has come and gone. I feel like June literally flew by. I look back and can't believe how quickly it went and how much I did this month! July is going to be even better, I cannot wait for my family vacation with my loved ones!! 

Here are my June Empties! As per usual, I went through a decent amount of goodies!
Products I used up in June '12
 
I decided to call it quits on my tube of benefit BADgal lash mascara. They say you should only use a tube of mascara for 3 months and then toss it, but I usually use mine for longer. I had this one since January '12 so I decided to toss it even though it was still working fine. I have already repurchased this product because I LOVE benefit's BADgal lash for its amazing lengthening and volumizing capabilities !

I finished up a pot of LUSH Lemony Flutter cuticle butter which I absolutely adore! This is a fantastic product that will keep every dry bit on your body moisturized and smooth. I love this product and gave a pot to my good friend Katie who has constant dry hands- she loves it too! Highly recommended, and already repurchased!

I decided to throw away an old tube of lip gloss from American Eagle- it was highly sticky and probably filled with synthetic chemicals, so I figured it was time to put it to rest. The same goes for the CoverGirl compact powder- it was way too light for my skin tone and I've had it since high school so I decided it was time to toss it. I will say that the scent of the powder took me back a good 8 years! I would obviously not repurchase either of these things, which I am throwing away even though they're not fully used!
I finished up two of my Mario Badescu samples from my free sample package I got back in April. I liked both of these products and I wanted to place an order but the shipping from the website is twenty dollars to Canada and I will not pay that price! I would repurchase, but only if Mario Badescu gets more reasonable shipping charges!

I also used up two more LUSH products: their tea tree water toner and the coconut deodorant powder. Both of these products are staples in my life and have been repurchased already. I love the Tea Tree Water toner because it is tailored for those with acne-prone skin. It is very light and does its job well. The coconut deodorant powder smells like heaven! I love layering this powder over top of my LaVanila natural deodorant for extra delicious scent and extra protection from body odour! I will note that I bought this carton of coconut deodorant powder last May and just finished it up now! This stuff lasts forever, I literally use it almost every day !

Lastly, I finished up a Glossybox sample- Aveeno's Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion! This product was okay- it did its job and worked well, but it wasn't anything special and I would not repurchase. I prefer more natural lotions, not ones filled with synthetic ingredients. Also, I am sad to say my "June" Glossybox will not be featured on my blog in June because it won't arrive until JULY! Glossybox was extremely late in sending out their boxes (surprise surprise) and mine isn't expected to be delivered until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week! They were using the long weekend as the excuse for why the boxes were shipped out so late? I don't see what that has to do with anything since the long weekend is THIS weekend, not last weekend? Whatever. A few people received their June Glossybox today and apparently "Junes" box is packed with seven samples! So hopefully there are things to look forward to in there :)

My CoverFX giveaway ends really, really soon! Enter here if you haven't.

This will be my last post for the long weekend! See you all on Monday or Tuesday :)

  2. I'd love to do a 'use-it-up' post but it takes me far too long to use anything up!
    I am thinking that I'd like to buy some things from lush :)

    1. if you're a LUSH virgin, beware- going into the store is majorly overwhelming. I started off ordering online, which was much easier!!

  6. I've heard non-stop raves about LUSH Lemony Flutter, it sounds like a wonderful product and something my nails/cuticles need given the state they're in due to the ravages of nail polish :p Always been curious to try Mario Badescu, shame about the steep shipping costs!

    I love these 'use-it-up' posts but, like someone else said, it feels like it takes me forever to finish up a product!

  12. I get so jealous when I see these types of posts.. I swear I finish one product every two months. Maybe it's the frugal Asian deep down inside of me LOL

    For Mario Badescu - you should check out Hautelook! They have his products once in a while for a cheaper price and their shipping prices are very reasonable!

  14. I loved my mario badescu samples too! So upsetting about the Canadian shipping!

  15. It always amazes me how many products you use up! I use maybe one a month haha.. I just got my Glossybox today.. originally Canada Post said I would receive it on the 28th but then it made it to Mississauga on Wednesday and didn't move! It is a great box so it is worth the wait.. still wish I would start receiving it in the month I am suppose to get it though!

  16. I def use my mascara until its all gone.. now matter how many months I have it for.. which I know is bad but I'm constantly switching up them because I have so many!
    I also agree that the cover girl powder takes me back too..!
    I was going to order some Mario products too but the shipping was unreal. I wouldn't buy the products that way.. I had to do a trip to the states to buy these products which in the end was cheaper than shipping!
