Products I have used up and products I am throwing away in February-March, 2016.

Beauty products I've used up in March, 2016: Declutter

So, here is another good work of mine ladies. Yes, using up the products at the same rate I am buying makes me feel good and I have been trying to consistently show you on my blog what products I used up each month. In fact, I realize, beauty declutter feels good! February-March being epic, I don't think my April one is going to be that massive. But, even baby steps is progress, right?

March beauty empties 2016
The makeups are at the bottom.
I am scared of having to write about everything. But worry not, this post is going to be as short and sweet as possible. In fact, I haven't even reviewed half of my stash yet.

The Nature's Co Tea Tree Hair Cream: It's good one for scalp and hair and I liked it. It turned out a tiny bit heavy for my fine hair, but for what it did, I don't mind.

Nivea Caramel Cream Lip Butter: While I like caramel, I did not like the scent of this on my lips. I am relieved that I managed to use it up. Still, I like the thick lip butters. When it comes to lip care, I think nivea is unbeatable.

Nivea Creme Classic: I could write another entire post about how I love Nivea Cremes because, I wonder, when nothing could save me, came the knight in the shinning armour called Nivea Creme Classic.

product empties
Sorry sweets. Couldn't get a better snap.
Lotus Herbals Ecostay Kajal: A week ago I bought my third one.

NYX Khol pencil: I bought this one from Mumbai and I used it up almost
completely. It has become a stub and I don't feel like reaching for it anymore. Yes, I got bored of it.

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Red Delight: This one is like a lip balm and lipstick rolled into one. During winters, on days when I had it with me, I never needed a separate lip balm. When my lips got chapped, just like a good lip balm, the lipstick softened the dead skin and peeled those off ( wasn't a pretty sight though.) I have used up to the last bits. I have even scooped some out. Since I am loaded with plenty of lipsticks, there is no point in constantly digging through I think.

Maybelline Hyperglossy Eyeliner: This is my second tube , the first one being completely used up. But, by now, I am over with glossy liners and the little amount which was left behind, I think had got contaminated. So, I had to get rid of it.

Bourjois Healthymix Foundation Shade 55: I had been head over heels with my first bottle. But, I don't know why, even though this time I got a shade darker, it would give me flashbacks and there was something amiss. I forced myself to use up most of it. The remaining 20% expired. I still got most out of it. That way, it wasn;t a complete waste. But, I wouldn't get gold of another one anymore. Nah. I am over with Bourjois Paris.

VLCC Instaglow Facial Kit: Used up one set. Review shortly.

Nivea Body Milk: Again, when nothing worked in winter, apart from coconut oil, I used this one.

Garnier BB Cream: I had randomly collected this sachet from somewhere. I love Garnier BB Creams.

Kiehl's Blue Herbals gel Cleanser: Quick impression soon.

Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream: Yes! I love it well and you can see that now. I have used it up completely.

Vedantika Anti-acne Face Pack: review soon.

Garnier Pure Active Face Wash: review soon.

Sand for Soapaholics Shine and Shiny: I fell in love. Want a new pot of it.

Vedicline Litchi Shake Cleanser: It was an enormous bottle of about 700 ml I think. I have been using it for a long time and the last part was over the expiry date. So, i got rid of it anyway.

VLCC Neem face Wash: review soon.

Elovera Lotion: Needs review.

V-Wash: A girl's gotta be clean down there.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner: Needs review.

Isadora BB Cream: I have another bottle in stock I think.

Avon CC Cream: Loved this. But, need my skin match.

Kiehls' F133: I don't know why they have stopped selling it in India. Rather, i fail to ralize why people did not love it much.

Garnier Fructis Long and String Shampoo: My mum loves it while I hate it.

Clean and Clear Pimple clearing Face Wash: Is there one Clean and Clear product I do not like? Can't think of any.

Himalaya Herbals Fairness Cream: Yes, the earlier one. From somewhere this made its way into my stash. Since, I do not use fairness creams, this expired. What a waste!

Phew! That's my long list of empties and declutters. Hope you are as much tired of reading it as I am of writing.

Until then,


  1. I loooooove Garnier Fructis Long and String Shampoo

    1. Really? Should I give it another chance then?

  2. will be going in for the Nivea Caramel Lip Butter now after you recommend

    1. I like the lip butters, but I am not particularly fond of the Caramel Creme because I feel it's too cloying for my taste.

  3. I've never managed to use up any foundation and always end up throwing as it would have expired. BTW that's a whole lot of products.

    1. Most of the time the same happens to me too. But, now that I have come across two which seem to be near perfect, I think, I would hit bottoms with those.
      Thanks a lot. You could try it too.

  4. Same pinch for coconut oil,himalaya night cream and clean and clear cleanser..we seem to be looking in the same direction...A Lot!

    1. Same pinch too! I have noticed that we do that a lot and that's also one reason why I love your blog even more.
      Thanks. Can't believe the sense of accomplishment this brought to me!

  5. So many empties :O You're really regular at using products unlike me :P

    1. Hahahaha! I got regular ever since I started doing these posts.

  6. This is huge...would love to see a full review post of Kiehl's Blue Herbals gel Cleanser...also if you can do a small review post on intimate wash...currently I am using the oriflame one & that is very gentle & effective...would love to know your experience with V-wash.

    1. Thank you Sramana. Since I got two sachets which are giving me quite a few uses, I think I am going to do an express review soon.
      Surely I can review the V Wash. I must. And also, putting the Oriflame one on my list now. :)

  7. Wow, so many empties! Isn't finishing up products the best feeling ever? Good going :)

    1. Ah! Can't express how much it alleviated the feeling of guilt!

  8. Wow u managed to finish Makeup products too!!!
