“I Complete You” November Update

I doubt any of you guys will be surprised to find out that while I used up stuff this month, I added even more to my list. In my defense I only voluntarily added a small amount of products: the rest were totally not my fault.

Up first, the products I used. I liked the cleanser, moisturizer and serum from Riversol: they left my skin soft and clean and didn’t have a heavy perfume smell. If they weren’t so ridiculously expensive, I’d consider using them again. Next up was something more in my budget: the Eucerin lotion which lived up to it’s promise of being good for extremely dry skin and fragrance free. The Arbonne foot cream was effective, but buying a full size would involve interacting with home sales ladies and is way more than I’d spend on lotion. Finally, I love love love the Cud-Zu Goat Farm soap. I used to buy this stuff when I lived in North Carolina and right now I have my fingers crossed that my mother will stick another bar in my Christmas stocking next month.

Now, I confess that I willingly signed up for the Target Beauty Bag and I solemnly swear that I will use up these products soon!

Then I pet sat for a friend for free one weekend so she could go to a fancy benefit with her mother. Her mother went a little crazy on the silent auction and insisted on sending a gift basket to share with me. Among a variety of pampering products, there were a number of things that definitely count as products and they’re full sized. Oops!

At least my addiction leaves me clean and fresh smelling?

“I Complete You” October Update

As I finish up more of the sample size products the rate at which I go through my list of “I Complete You Products” is slowing down: in the last two months, I’ve used up only a handful of products. However, I also added to the list with free samples thanks to Sweet Free Stuff. (Seriously, check this place out.)

What did I think about the products I used up? I wasn’t the hugest fan of the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine shampoo, which left my hair greasier than usual and really flat. As for the Shiseido skincare line, I loved how soft the products made my skin feel, but they were a bit too perfume-y for my taste. The Peter Thomas Roth soap was nice, as was the Painted Earth moisturizer. I did like the Arm & Hammer Sensitive toothpaste, which I might have to check out when I run out of my current tube.

(For the record, that’s my coffee table, not a wooden bathroom counter. My bathroom counter is a weird pink-yellow-grey combo.)
