Project "Finish This Stuff" - Get Out of My Stash Edition


**all (but 1) items purchased by me
**contains product received for review

After an extremely busy Monday (cleaning the whole house for an appraisal), I needed to use Tuesday after the appointments to recover my energy.  As for today, I've got a post I've been meaning to get up for a while now.  It's another Project "Finish This Stuff" update, but rather than these things being finished, it's all things that are being given away - the products are all still good, they just don't work for me now.  As usual in this series, I've included a brief review &/or reason for why each is leaving.

For this edition, I'll be showing what hair stuff is leaving or has already left my stash.
  • One full size and 3 travel size bottles of Got2b Guardian Angel Flat Iron Balm. Initially I did like this and went through almost an entire bottle.  But then I and my hair stylist started noticing issues.  This is a possible culprit to the product build-up issues I discussed in this post.  I won't be using again.  
  • One full size bottle (but used out of) of Got2b Guardian Angel Blow-Out Lotion.  Same as above -  I initially did like it, but it's now in the category of possible culprit to product build-up issues.  I won't be using again.  
  • One bottle (about half gone) of Pantene Frizzy to Smooth Conditioner for Medium-Thick hair.  Other than periodically using a clarifying shampoo, the only shampoos and conditioners I now use are specifically tailored to colored hair.  My only possible use for this now is as a shave cream and I have plenty of other conditioners to use for that.  Better to clear it out of the stash.

  • Tresemme Smooth Simply No Frizz Spray Gel (most of the bottle).  I didn't care for the way this left my hair feeling a bit crunchy when I would blow dry it straight after spraying this in.  This was just not a fit for my hair type and style.  I gave this to my mom since she is always trying products to help shape her curls and uses much less heat on her hair.
  • Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins (**received from Influenster for review).  The concept seems good, but for me, it is unusable since I prefer my hair short (asymmetrical bob) and have no plans to let it grow out any time soon, if ever.

  • 2 full size bottles of Sunsilk Anti-Poof hair creme.  I used this product a lot more when I had long hair (middle-of-my-back long) but since I cut it short a few years ago I rarely use it.  I kept one bottle that is more than half gone.  I'm not even sure if this product is still available.  It did help keep my hair from getting as big each time I let it air dry.

I still have loads more products that are being destashed to share in a couple upcoming posts at some point.  I've cleaned out a lot of makeup products and there's also quite the collection of polish "dupes" that are being evicted.

Have you cleaned out your stash of unused products lately?  What did you do with your excess?
