Trash Day: Recent Empties

Hey all,
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Today I’m bringing you some empties from the past few months. Hopefully I won’t have so much sitting and waiting to be reviewed  now that I’m back to blogging. I am sure there are some other products that I’ve probably used up and didn’t save. I’m still trying to use up the abundance of products that I have in my stash. The only thing I’ve been buying are the things that I run out of completely. I also think I’m going to start up my #SampledOutSaturdays again. This worked great when I focused on it before.

With that being said, let’s get into my trash!

I enjoyed this product while I had it. I often break it up to get a few uses out of it because I don’t have a Lush in my province. I would definitely buy this product again if it is available.

*~*~*~*~*~*

Expired / Products I didn’t Like:

Empty2.jpg
The Product:

Instant Touch-up
Size: 0.25 oz / 7 g

Will I Repurchase?
NO! This was horrible. This is something I bought a number of years back and used it once. It left my hair feeling gross, like I coated it with wax. I didn’t realize that I still had this and found it while decluttering. To the garbage it goes.

*~*~*~*~*~*
The Product:
Banana Boat
Sport Performance
Sunscreen Lotion
SPF 60
Broad Spectrum/ Sweatproof/Waterproof
Size: 240 ml

About the Product:
Banana Boat Sport Performance sunscreen formulas are specially designed for active lifestyles and outdoor sports. Our sweatproof formulas are fragrance free, PABA free, non-greasy, waterproof and absorb quickly.

Will I Repurchase?
I will probably buy this again. We bought three of these two years ago and we only had a little left in this when it expired. I often joke that we need to take some shares in sunscreen because the boyfriend burns quickly in the sun (I often joke that all he needs to do is think about the sun and he burns.. haha). We will definitely purchase sunscreen of some sort in the future.

*~*~*~*~*~*

The Product:
Secret
Hawaii Citrus Breeze
Antiperspirant
Size: 45 g

Will I Repurchase?
I did love the scent of this but I am not the biggest fan of powdered antiperspirants. However, I tossed this because little bumps formed on the top of it. I figured that maybe this was expired but the date was stamped for April of this year. Not sure what happened. I do not think I will buy this again because I like the gel ones so much more.

*~*~*~*~*~*

The Product:
Dove
Go Fresh – Cool Essentials
Cucumber & Green Tea Scent
Size: 45 g

Will I Repurchase?
I loved the fresh scent that this product left. However, as I said before I’m not the biggest fan of the powdered ones. This one had a bit left but it is being tossed because it was expired. I bought these in bulk at Costco. I’ve learned my lesson about this because I do like to alternate between scents. Therefore, I probably won’t be repurchasing this one any time in the near future.

*~*~*~*~*~*

Broken:

The Product:
Skintimate Signature Scents
Moisturizing Shave Gel
Strawberry Tangerine Twist
Size: 7 oz / 198 g

About the Product:
Skintimate Signature Scents Strawberry Tangerine Twist Moisturizing Shave gel combines a luscious fragrance of sweet summer fruits with 6 moisturizers, including Vitamin E and Olive Butter , and helps replenish skin’s natural moisture while providing unbeatable razor protection for a close, comfortable shave and healthy feeling, smooth skin.

Will I Repurchase?
I have already confessed that this is my favorite shaving gel brand and I do love this scent. However, this one was disappointing. I bought this in a set of three and this one would not work. No matter what we tried, we could not get it to work. What a bummer!

*~*~*~*~*~*

Well that’s all that I’ve got to share from my trash today. All the product descriptions (other then the Lush product) are taken directly from the packaging. All opinions are my own and in no way influenced by other means.

Do you write posts about your empties? Please let me know by leaving a link in the comments. I’d love to see what you’ve been using and loving; or products I should avoid!

Have a wonderful Saturday and see you all again soon with another post!
