Project "Finish This Stuff," part 11


Time for the next installment of Project "Finish This Stuff"!  Included this time are the months of May and June.  I've also included little mini reviews of several of the items.  I am slowly weeding my way through old samples and products - Yay!

Let's get started with May, which was a productive month.
  •  Avon Sunrise Rejuvenating Body Lotion - nice, but I need a more deeply hydrating body lotion (I'm not even sure if it's sold anymore since this bottle was old)
  • Bath & Body Works Anti-bacterial Hand Soap in Paris Amour - I liked this one, would probably purchase again
  • Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo - nice, especially since color-less...but I'm using a different brand now
  • Pantene Fine Hair Solutions Detangler Anti-Breakage - worked pretty well, but since it's summer, I'm using a detangler to formulated to also protect color from sun-fading

  • Olay Eye Derma-Pod (2 sample pods) - ummm...didn't notice anything other than the sponge was scratchy.  Not sure if these are currently sold.
  • Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Daily Cleanser - I used half to 2/3 of the bottle and then told the Mister to finish since it seemed like my skin was getting too dry using it, so won't purchase again. 

  • Crystal Waters Spa Blueberry scented shower gel (mini size from Dollar Tree) - YUCK!! it smelled like medicine.  Would NOT recommend at all. 
  • Secret Invisible Solid pH balanced antiperspirant/deodorant - The only brand I use 

  •  Maybelline Define-a-Brow in Medium Brown - love this pencil and have gone through at least 2 others in the past (I'm hoping that this isn't going to be discontinued).  I do have 1 back-up.
  • Wet 'n Wild MegaLiner Liquid Eye liner in black - pretty good, except if I used it multiple days in a row, my lashline would tingle a little bit.  I do have a back-up of this, but I'm using a different brand that I like a little better right now.
  • Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel - didn't notice much difference when I used it, but there might not have been enough product in the sample to get a good feel for it.
  • Revlon ColorStay Whipped foundation samples (shows 3 but actually used 6 over a few days) - I love this foundation, actually ended up purchasing it and have reviewed it.  Whenever I need to repurchase, I'll probably try a lighter shade.
And now June, which was not very productive at all:
  • One A Day Women's plus Healthy Skin Support - didn't really notice a difference in my skin or as a whole when taking consistently versus not taking at all
  • Equate SPF 50 Ultra Protection Sunscreen Continuous Spray - definitely my preferred method of applying sunscreen since I can easily spray my back and everywhere.  I used several of these last year and currently have a few more I'm working on.
  • Crest 3D White Advanced Whitening Enamel Renewal toothpaste - my current favorite toothpaste (except I hate the packaging nozzle-thing since it's so hard to really get all the product out towards the end).  I have 3 or 4 backups of these since I try to buy when on sale, in multi-packs and/or when I have a coupon.
So there's all the products I finished in a 2 month time span.

Have you finished much in the way of beauty products lately?
