Project "Finish This Stuff," part 31 - April 2014

**purchased / g.w.p. / gift

After so many posts in a row showing new polishes in my life, I felt like proving that I actually do use up products from time to time.  Today I'm going all the way back to the month of April for my Project "Finish This Stuff" update.  I didn't get a whole lot finished, but I'm happy that I got a few things finished... Wait, one I wasn't happy to finish, but I'll get to that in a minute.  As always, I've included quick reviews of the products and whether or not I'll purchase/repurchase.

Let's get started, shall we?
Dial White Tea & Vitamin E antibacterial handsoap with moisturizer - purchased from Target (when the bonus size was available).  I've gone through several of these and I have already repurchased more for my bathroom as well as a couple others in the house.
Aveeno Living Color for medium thick hair Shampoo and Conditioner - purchased from Target (I think).  These were nice and I felt like my color didn't fade super fast.  But I think that I like the ones from Suave better so won't repurchase.
Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum (travel size) - given to me by my mom.  I absolutely love this serum!  It really did help my hair to dry faster when blow-drying.  Will eventually purchase after I work my way through a similar product from another brand.  The only downside is that this is a pricey product when you go to buy the full size (5.1 oz) bottle - nearly $20 when you add in tax.
CVS Eye Makeup Remover oil-free - purchased from CVS (obviously).  This is my favorite, HG eye makeup remover.  It's comparable to Neutrogena's dual phase remover at a much better price; I feel like the CVS version works better than Walgreens' version.  Will repurchase.
Murad Clarifying Wipes for blemish-prone skin - sample from Sephora.  I did really like this as a quick morning wipe. I didn't find this to be irritating to my skin which does have the occasional sensitivity.  I might purchase, but the price has held me back from them so far.  I have more thoughts on this sample in my previous Project Finish update.
Clindamycin phosphate topical lotion - prescription.  Nope.  Didn't do a thing for me...I actually think that I started breaking out more when I tried to reintroduce this to my skin.  I didn't even finish this bottle all the way.  Won't repurchase - I haven't even seen the dermatologist for my acne in at least a year.
Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover (travel size, gift with purchase).  I use the ones that I end up with through gifts with purchase BUT my eyes aren't thrilled with that.  The rose scent of this can be irritating to my eyes, so if there happens to be a trace of mascara or something that won't come off with water I have to use either the CVS or Clinique brand remover.  Won't specifically purchase, but will use ones I get.

Do you ever put off purchasing/repurchasing products you like just because they are on the pricier side?
