Toss or Trash: October 2012

There is not much in the way of makeup for October’s Toss or Trash post. I focused quite a bit on burning Bath and Body Works candles. I knew I would be purchasing upcoming Holiday ones…

I loved all of these. And, would, or have, purchased them again.

More Bath and Body Works. I see a theme…

The lotions are minis from last year’s Halloween. And the Spice air freshener, I have no clue how long I have had that one. Those things last forever! I like the Wicked Spice Pumpkin lotion. The other two, I’m neither here nor there with them. And the Spice, is very nice.

The Matrix ‘Silk Wonder’ sampler was OK. It does the job. However, I like my Macadamia Natural Oil better. (I do have a post coming up, very soon, on my beloved Macadamia Oil. I swear!) I got the Sally Hansen’s Foot Scrub from a CVS clearance. I did like it. However, I was a bit trepidatious using an oil on my feet while in the shower. I think I’ll stick more with a conventional scrubs for my feet. As I have stated in previous Toss or Trash posts, I’m very fickle about deodorant brands. This Dove product smells very clean. This was a dual pack so I’m on the second one now.  If I find a great sale price on Dove again, I’ll get it.

I saw Oil-licious in a magazine. It was just one of those gut feelings that I knew I’d like it. And it isn’t very expensive at around $6. This does exactly what it says. Well, it doesn’t tame the wispies I get at my temples, but I love how this makes my locks shine. I’m already on my second can.

This is all I have for makeup this time. The top is a mascara from Jerome Alexander. It was part of a kit I purchased way too long ago. I didn’t keep using the mascara so it dried up. I don’t even remember if I liked it or not.

The mark product is one that creates highlights on the face. The little brush paints on a sheen wherever you want. I did like it and used it all up. When I found this, there was only one application left. I used it primarily on my brow bone too. I would recommend it save for the thin consistency of the product.

I am looking for my holy grail eye shadow primer. Unfortunately, Jesse’s Girl isn’t it. It didn’t seem to last past leaving the house. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Last is Dante brush cleaner. I got this at Cosmoprof this year. I received this to do a review on. I did that here. However, several months later, I found that my makeup brushes were not getting very clean. The powder wasn’t coming off the brushes when I used the product. I experimented with using less, using more, wiping the brush off on something different than my normal micro-fiber towel. Nothing seemed to remove all the makeup. I went back to my ol’ Brush Off brush cleaner. I tested the Brush Off on a couple of my brushes before I used them again. And, there still was some makeup powder left on it that Dante didn’t get off. This happened with several other brushes before I just gathered them all up and gave them all a good shampooing. I am changing my mind regarding recommending Dante. It seems like over time it coated my brushes rather than clean them.

Any of these items familiar to you?

    Hah, you really plow through candles. 😀
    Btw, if you have a CVS near you, there is a $3 Oil-licious coupon in their .99 Reinventing Beauty Magazine. Your review makes me want to try it. 🙂

    • I love the ambiance of having a candle lit. I usually have one going in my home office and one in the living room. Ohhh, that’s a good deal on the Oil-licious! I use it every day and it makes my hair have a beautiful luster. If you get it, let me know what you think.
