Talkin’ Trash

Not talkin’ smack!! Winking smile

Products I have used up Thumbs up or Thumbs down!

Grab a snack this is gonna be a long post!!!

smiley hungry

I used up two of the Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater body lotions. This is hands down my favorite lotion. The smell is amazing and it sinks into the skin very quickly. I usually can find it at TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Ross for like $12-$14.


I also went through another St. Ives Oatmeal and Shea butter body wash which is also an all time favorite. I have been using this stuff for forever and it makes your skin feel and look very healthy. You can get this pretty much anywhere that sells body wash.


Perfectly Posh Daily Grind Coffee Scrub. If you love the smell of coffee and a good scrub you will love this stuff!! I wish my sis-n-law still sold their products. I may have to find a local rep just so I can get my hands on this.


Went through two of the Murad Time Release Acne Cleansers. This stuff is awesome if you are “vintage” and still get acne like me. Sarcastic smileSmile with tongue out It doesn’t dry out your skin and it really works. I love this whole line. I get mine at Ulta and stock up when I have a 20% off coupon.


Another tried and true is this Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel. I use this as a toner and when I come in from being in the pool to get the sunscreen residue off. It smells so nice can you tell I like the smell of rose!!! I get it at Vitamin Shoppe or our local all natural shop.


Neutrogena eye makeup remover lotion. I first bought this a long time ago because I was getting that milia stuff under my eyes and I read this helped and it most definitely does. I have repurchased this stuff everytime I run out. It is that good. I get mine at the Target.


Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Makeup Remover. I got this as a sample gift with purchase thing at Ulta. It works great on waterproof mascara but I would never pay $39 for a makeup remover since there are so many good ones at the drugstore. I mean unless it had some type of magical properties that was gonna make me look like a supermodel then I might. Winking smile


Meaningful Beauty wrinkle smoothing capsules. This was also a Ulta gift with purchase thing or maybe they have started handing out samples like Sephora cause I did not buy anything Cindy Crawford when I went?? Anywho there were only 7 capsules in the bottle so it is kinda hard to tell if it made a a difference but I will say I loved how soft it made my skin feel.


Yes To Coconut & Lemongrass hand soap. It smells just like summer. I freaking love this stuff. I get mine at Target or Walgreens.


Jergens Ultra Healing lotion. I don’t have dry skin but this stuff was really nice and sinks into the skin really fast as well. It came as a sample with a Jergens wet skin moisturizer which I absolutely love as well because it is perfect for when I am lazy and don’t want to put lotion on after I get out of the shower.


c. Booth Egyption argan oil body butter. I got this sample in a Target Beauty Box I believe. It is very nice consistency and soaks into the skin quickly. I will probably buy a full size when I run out of some of my other body butters. It has kind of a baby powder/floral scent. I can’t really explain it but it’s a nice scent.


Hawaiian tropic sheer touch lotion sunscreen. This is my go to during the summer. I use it as my everyday lotion so if I happen to go lay out or end up at the beach I already have sunscreen on and then just need to apply as needed. It gives your skin a really nice glow too. I can also use this on my face and it doesn’t cause breakouts. Smells really nice not too sunscreeny if ya know what I mean.


Now More of the makeup type products. Lots of lip balms cause I kinda am addicted to them…Winking smile Red lips

ELF lip exfoliator. This is probably my second or third one of these. They are $3 and they work great. They smell like vanilla to me. I get mine at Target.


Fresh Sugar lip treatment. I love this stuff. It has SPF in it and makes your lips super soft. I only wish it came in better packaging so you could get all of it out and that it wasn’t so expensive. I literally dig every last bit of it out with a lip brush cause I don’t want to waste any. LOL Rolling on the floor laughing I get mine at Sephora.


Perfectly Posh tree hugger lip balm. I really liked this product and I got it when my sis-n-law was selling their products. Not sure if I will repurchase it or not since I have so many other balms I like more.


Treat Coconut Cream Lip Balm. I have already repurchased this twice cause I love it so much. They smell amazing and I have their balms in like four different scents all around my house so I can reach for one when my lips are dry. I get it from their site or amazon.


Jack Black Lip Balm in shea butter & vitamin E. I have this in my purse at all times. This is probably my 10th if not more of these. I get mine at Ulta or Sephora. I may or may not have tried to squeeze the very last bit I could out right now cause my lips are dry typing this post.


Burts Bees Blush Orchid tinted lip balm. I did not care for this product at all and did not even finish it. The color made me look ill and the scent was just weird. Definitely a Thumbs down. I got mine at Target.


Too Faced Shadow Insurance. This used to be my favorite eye primer but now Smashbox 24 hr photo finish primer has taken its place. Also Milani’s eyeshadow primer is pretty much an exact dupe at a drugstore price. It’s still good though and if I were in a pinch I definitely would use it.


Maybeline Age Rewind eraser for dark circles in the shade neutralizer. I love everything about this product except the packaging. The little sponge gets so nasty that it gives me the heebeegeebees. I wish they made it in just a doe foot applicator or squeeze tube. I get mine at Target or the drugstore.


Some of hubby’s empties! Jack black Supreme Cream and Texture Cream. I gave my husband a gift set of these two Christmas’s ago and he loves them. We have already repurchased both of these several times. I get them at Ulta & Sephora.


Leaders 7 wonders Pore Minimizing sheet mask. I heard about these from Coffee Break With Dani. When Ulta had a BOGO for these I bought like 10. They are really really nice, but you with look like Jason from Friday the 13th for the 20-25 minutes you have to wear them. LOL


I promise I am almost done just one food and one drink item.

Sensible Portions garden veggie chips. These are delicious and my favorite is the BBQ. I found these at Publix.


and last but not least Alo pulp free comfort drink in watermelon and peach. This is full of good stuff for your body and it tastes awesome. I have tried a couple of their other flavors but this is by far my favorite. I get this at my local natural food store.


Happy Monday!! Red lips
