Product Empties January 2016 | Products I've Used Up | Ms Pam Blam

I'm getting rid of my beauty trash! Over the past few months I have been moving in my new house and getting settled in. I've put myself on a banned from buying any more beauty products until I use up what I have...I felt that while I was packing I had too much stuff!

Here is what I will be tossing away:
It's a 10 Miracle Leave in Plus Keratin - this is a must have for me. I've found that my hair doesn't like a lot of product in it...the less the better. This is one of the products I use when I get out of the shower...and on my lazy days I will just spray this in and go. It leaves my hair very soft and tangle free! This is on the pricey side especially for being a drugstore purchase (I get mine at Wal Mart) but it's really worth the money.

Caudalie Moisturizing Toner - best toner I've tried so far! I've already repurchased this...and my new one came with a pump which is way better than this packaging. I find the pump lets me control how much product I'm using so hopefully it will last longer. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized and hydrated (which is great for my dry skin)

Caudalie Beauty Elixir - another Caudalie product and another love of mine. I use this product mainly in the summer time to refresh my makeup when it's hot outside. I have repurchased it but it's not currently in my everyday makeup...but I will be pulling it out again in the summertime

Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy - this is a very expensive lip balm! It did work really well but because of the high price tag I'm experimenting with cheaper options and I don't think I will be repurchasing

Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser - technically this isn't an empty or product I've used up but I'm throwing it away anyway. Please don't buy this it's AWFUL! First off the smell is very perfumery and smells like old lady. It was really thick and hard to rub onto my face to remove my makeup. There are so many better cleansers out there I would take a pass on this one.

Dermablend Long Wear Makeup Remover - this stuff was great but hard to get my hands on. This really did remove all of my makeup - even waterproof. The only downside is I couldn't find this anywhere so I bought it on Amazon for A LOT. I haven't repurchased because I don't want to spend that kind of money again but if you can find it locally then I would pick it up.

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover - this is okay if you've on a budget. It's better than any drugstore eye makeup remover I've tried but I found I did have to rub a lot to get everything off. I don't particularly like to rub my eyes too much as they are very sensitive. I won't be repurchasing accuse I found a different eye makeup remover that I'm loving much better. 

Ardel Accent 301 - not much to say about these lashes...THEY ARE THE BEST! I've wore them to much, there were my go to lashes for my wedding day. They are just half lashes so very easy to apply and look pretty natural if applied correctly.

LashGrip Glue - this is great glue. It sticks and holds in place all day - I prefer this over the Duo glue.

Ardel Natural Demi Wispies - Sorry about the picture...I didn't realize the flash covered up the lash name - but these are the demi wispies. I find the wispies a little too long so I prefer the demi ones. These are great natural looking lashes. They look like my lashes only longer and fuller.

L'oreal Colour Riche Nails - I'm not big on fake nails but after our move I just can't get my nails to grow out - too much handling boxes and moving furniture around. These nails don't stick at all so I would suggest getting some nail glue to stick them on. They only lasted for about 3 days, after that I felt they were just in the way and I ripped them off. I probably will only keep these for special occasions.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray - I don't know why I didn't include this into my 2015 favorites because it SHOULD HAVE BEEN! I use this everyday. It's the best makeup setting spray I have ever used.

Rapid Lash Eyelash Enhancing Serum - I was really disappointed with this serum. I've used a lot of other lash serums in the past and this one didn't seem to do anything. I wont be repurchasing. 

Did you make it to the end!?!?! Way to go! That seemed like a long list. I love finishing up products - it gives me an odd sense of accomplishment when you complete go through a product. 

If you've tried any of these products I would love to know in the comments below what your thoughts were...please share!
