February Beauty Declutter and Empties

Glenmark Elovera Lotion| L'Oreal paris, Revlon, Avon, H20+, Olay, Bliscent, Bio Bloom

February (you read it right), has been successful in terms of utilization and some declutter ( phew!). Well, it's not like I have been able to declutter a bucketful of stuff, but what I did , I feel is still good.

Mini reviews

Let's get to it with makeup first,

I completely used up,

makeup empties

L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lipgloss in Pretty Woman: I had reviewed it before. This one got used up before I realized that I loved it so much!

Revlon Super Lustruous Lip Gloss in Pink Pop: I have been using it as an all round lip balm, lipstick topper, gloss, etc. etc. until suddenly I noticed thatI have reached the bottom!

The Face Shop Freshian Mascara: This one is easy to remove and easy on the pocket. That's all I needed in my life.

Avon Eye Liner: For some reason, I have been completely off coloured liners. Perhaps, they are not my type. This has been with me for years and I wouldn't want to use it on my eyes anyway. Thought that there's no pint in holding on to such an old product or something which I wouldn't be using either.


Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless in Chamois: I had used it well and loved it well. But, dues to my frequent seaside vacations and the Manila lifestyle, I have turned at least two shades darker than I used to be. This in no way matches me. Even when the tan is lighter, if I am using it, I think my skin is not loving it. My skin starts looking rough. There are no breakouts, but rough texture distictly looking like a reaction. So, off it goes.

L'Oreal Infallible 24 H Liquid Foundation: This one expired. Also, I am off any heavy foundations these days. So, out it goes.

Here comes the skin care,

Olay 7-in-1 Light Weight Cream: I am trying to be consistent with my skin care and when I use a product, I try to use it everyday now. I had reviewed it before. I had another full size bottle lying around. Initially, I had a bump or two, but that's my skin adjusting to it. Eventually, it turned out to be nice, though not the best to my current likings. It's completely used up now.

Glenmark Elovera Lotion: I got this small sample from my dermatologist and ever since I have been flying with it. You know, during long flights how skin starts drying up and itches all over. This one comes really handy. Loved using it.

Frizz Kiss Lip Balm: Initially did not like it much. Later, used it completely.

H20+ Hand Cream: If you tend to do household chores, you would know how hands can get dry. Having a hand cream around does help and this one has been in my bag for quite sometime. It's thick, dense, gets absorbed. Smells mild and pleasant ... not run of the mill floral or fruity.

Bliscent Lip Butter in Raspberry: I am loaded with lip balms. Thought it did not expire, by the time I opened it, it was smelling funny. So, definitely threw it away.

BioBloom Skin care Cleansing Milk: It smelled nice and felt good on the skin, but completely failed to remove makeup ( and I don't even wear much stubborn makeup either). Just wanted to get rid from the stash.

So, that's my trash post. Hope you enjoyed seeing all this trash. The March empties post is coming up in a day or two.

Until then,



  1. Wish to try the Olay 7-in-1 Light Weight Cream but it's not available in India

    1. Hey, it is available. I got mine in India and it's available everywhere.

  2. I love the L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse - even though it isn't as pigmented it feels amazing and totally looks gorgeous on the lips.

    1. Exactly. Initially, after swatching, I wasn't that impressed. But, once I started using, just fell in love.

  3. AH, how good it feels to be done with some products. You get your money's worth and you know you've used it before it expired, atleast in most cases. Loving the blog :)
