Toss or Trash: Random Collections

During my move to another state, I have been actually saving my trash and toss items. And I have boxes of new products to review. However, along with moving there has been apartment hunting, starting a new job and just learning my way around. First order of business, after getting a new vehicle, was…where are the Walgreens, are there Ulta stores near by and, how do I get to Rite Aid?

Let me show you some of the bottom of the pan/can/bottle items…

toss or trash 011These are two new-to-me products. I wanted to test out something different than my usual fare. Suave is a product that I used in my early adult years. Mainly because it is inexpensive. However, this time I picked the ‘milk and honey splash’ for the aroma. It isn’t overwhelming; it’s a fresh, warm fragrance. And this wash didn’t dry out my skin. This is trash because I would use it again.

The Sauve Max Hold hairspray was another attempt at giving a new-to-me product a try. Again, I was quite happy with this hairspray. It didn’t have hardly any aroma, it didn’t make my hair feel dried out and, it did hold my hair in place. Mostly I spray my bangs and the wispies behind my ears. Sauve, again, is something I can recommend for those that, like me, have fine hair and want to keep it in place without a crunchy feel.

Here are a a couple of toss items and, one trash…

toss or trash 016On the far left is a Laura Geller clear lip gloss. It WAS clear. I like Laura Geller products very much. And even though this gloss was nice, it was not so stellar that it is something I can’t live without.

In the middle is another Laura Geller product that is used to make a shadow into a liner. I used this quite a bit. However, once it is used for one shade, it starts to contaminate the next shades I would pick. Laura Geller has another product similar to this that is in a small squeeze bottle and does the job in a way that there is no contamination between uses. I will deem this a toss because I wouldn’t repurchase it.

Last is ‘Degree: Sheer Powder’ antiperspirant and deodorant. As a faithful reader, you know that deodorant is something that I’m so fickle about. I never get the same brand or fragrance twice. However, I can say that I like this Degree and the fragrance was light and powdery; just as it is named. I didn’t have any staining or marks on my clothing from using this product. It did its job and I can recommend it.

With the exception of the Laura Geller products, you can find the other items at most drug and mass retail stores. Laura Geller has been selling her products for over a year at Ulta and I’m happy to see that she has made them easier to purchase by doing so. The two products of hers that I have reviewed, I purchased from QVC.

Have you tried any of these products?

  • I have not tried the LG eye shadow to liner but I want to! Too bad its not contaminated free though!

    The LG shadow to liner stuff sounds good but it needs a better delivery system. I like the scent of Degree anti antiperspirants but they wimp out on me. Aarid is a tried and true for me. I have a bottle of the Suave Creamy Milk and Honey in my shower, right now. It’s okay. Not mind blowing. I prefer Nivea. 🙂
