July Binned Things 2014!


Every time I gather up my empties for the month, I feel a pang of pity for my husband. After all, he barely has any space for his things, yet my stuff continues to multiply. Once that moment of guilt passes, I feel incredibly lucky, because he's a very understanding man!

I didn't finish a lot of things this month, but it's certainly not bad effort!


1) Wotnot Facial Wipes - I couldn't love these enough! This is an incredible staple - I just love it!
Repurchase? Always, for the foreseeable future

2) Eco Care Facial Wipes - See full review here
Repurchase? Yes

3) Yes to Grapefruit Exfoliating Facial Towelettes - I found this to be a little harsh on my skin and that it left my skin feeling a little tingly. 
Repurchase? No


4) Natio Body Creme - I got this in  DJ beauty bag, and while I liked the texture and didn't mind the scent, I didn't find this to be more extraordinary than any other body lotion.
Repurchase? Maybe

5) Vaseline Total Moisture Dry Skin Lotion - A great staple lotion!
Repurchase? Yes

6) Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - I've been using this as a face mask recently, and it's been a real treat for my skin! I feel like this really does give me a perkier look. 
Repurchase? Yes

7) Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturiser - Really liked using this! It's part of their cruelty free line and it has quite a strong scent, so I wouldn't recommend this for those who don't like scented products.
Repurchase? Yes

8) Swisspers Cotton Tips - An excellent staple - not too thin and not uncomfortable to use.
Repurchase? Already done!


9) Nude by Nature Mineral Primer - I liked this primer to begin with, but I started getting over it about 2/3rd of the way down. It's ok, just not spectacular.
Repurchase? No

10) Bomb Cosmetics French Kiss Clay Mask - Beautiful! See full review here.
Repurchase? Yes

11) Puretopia Whisk Away Creamy Face Cleanser - Love this cleanser! See full review here.
Repurchase? YES!

12) Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Omega Repair Conditioner - Lovely amber scent that left my hair soft to touch.
Repurchase? Yes

13) Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Omega Repair Shampoo - Great accompanying shampoo!
Repurchase? Yes


14) Tommy Girl Jeans - This perfume was getting a little old! A citrusy scent that was great for the gym, but I got sick of it about halfway through!
Repurchase? No

15) Indeed Labs Pepta-Bright - See full review here
Repurchase? Yes

16) Woolworths Makeup Removal Pads - Best pads for makeup removal!
Repurchase? Yes

17) Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask - Love this super moisturising mask! Indeed Labs does an amazing selection of dermatological products. If you haven't checked out their range yet, you should!
Repurchase? Yes

18) Etude House I Need You, Yoghurt! Mask - A bit of a fun mask by Etude House! It's really got a yoghurty texture to it.
Repurchase? Yes


19) Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser - Said to be a dupe for Benefit's Porefessional, it's not as good as the Benefit version, but it certainly is a decent primer.
Repurchase? Maybe

20) Ocean;s Essence Eye Cream - I wasn't expecting to like this, but I really did! It was quite moisturising for the skin under my eyes.
Repurchase? Yes

21) John Frieda Conditioner 3 - Originally marketed to be the finishing conditioner for their home dye kits, it's so popular it's now a standalone conditioner. I enjoyed using this on my hair - it left it feeling silky.
Repurchase? Yes

22) Aveeno Positively Radiant Eye Illuminator - I found this to be tricky to use! It's meant to be squeezed out through the brush end, then painted on, but there's always way more product! 
Repurchase? No


23) Swisse Hand Cream - Got this in a beauty box, and while it's not a bad hand cream, it's a little thin. It does have a great citrusy scent to it, though. 
Repurchase? No



Stand out products from the samples include the Hot Mama! Blush by The Balm and the Pure Marajucu Oil by Tarte. 

Certainly not as large a lot of finished products as previous months, but not a bad effort for the month of July!

What did you get around to going through in the last month?

  1. We just moved back in to our apartment from staying at the in-laws house and I could really see my stuff dominating the place hahaha! We bought a shoe cabinet on the weekend and the husband was so generous on giving three out of the four drawers =P
    All of my finished products didn't make it home from the overseas trip or the house move lol.

    1. You know you married the right guy when... Haha! Ahh... That's really sweet! My finished products don't always make it all the way back either!

  2. I'd forgotten about my The Balm Hot Mama blush.. I wonder where mine is?? I used to love one of the Tommy Girl perfumes and haven't had it for years... I wasn't that particular one, I'll have to go and find some and have a sniff :) Not sure I'll have many empties at the end of this month.

  4. The exfoliating facial towels seem interesting. I like anything that exfoliates! ^__^

    1. Don't get too excited - it's just a mini blush! Haha... Maybe I over blush?

  6. Wow thats a ton of empties! It's a good feeling to chuck out a bunch of stuff (and then replace it with even more hehe). I think I'll definitely have to try out some Puretopia products in the future :)

    1. I've really enjoyed what I've tried from their line, so I'm kinda looking forward to clearing more stuff so I can try even more of their products!
