October '16 empties and throwaways

Tuesday, November 01, 2016


I had not done an empties post for a long time. After my last empties post, I felt there are not enough bottles to post about. And then it just skipped my mind and bottles kept piling up. I thought of cleaning up my bathroom shelf and skin care cabinet before Durga Puja, but long hours at office and then my vacation plans kept my away from the mandatory pre - Durga Puja house cleaning. So before Diwali I made it a point to throw away all the empty bottles along with some of the products which has gone bad. 


Here's a long list of what went in the bin in no particular order.










Initially I liked it as when I was using it, that time my face was extremely oily. Like I had to blot my face or splash water like every other minute. But with time when my skin became a little less oily than that horror phase, this one was drying my skin too much. So I stopped using it, eventually throwing it away as this started smelling like chemicals.


You require very little quantity of this. So it was lying with me for many months now. In between I had stopped using this just because I was using something else. One find day I opened it to use it again and to my horror, the butters had turned sticky like adhesive. It smelled funny exactly like how very old oil would smell. I had to throw away more than half of the jar.






The same with this one also like the Fab India foot scrub. I was using other face packs in between and this was just lying around. Then one fine day, I saw the pack had dried up to cracks and it smelled like mud just after rain. There was still half of the jar left. So threw it away.












Never used this lip color, it is the worst of them all. So throwing this away finally.


One of my favorite concealer, but sadly this one expired.

THE BODY SHOP FIJIAN WATER LOTUS MIST

V WASH PLUS

A decent vaginal wash. I might buy it in future.

NIZRAL 2% SHAMPOO

I have the worst case of dandruff where it is itchy and irritable scalp, its oily and not flaky. No anti-dandruff shampoo whatsoever could soothe my scalp and relief me from that irritable condition than this one. I always have one at hand.

PURELY PRO BLUSH

This blush came along with my Velvette Box way back in 2012 may be. I think it's Fab Bag's fore father. I did not quite like the blush ever and it was lying in my vanity for ever. Had to throw this out.

MAYBELLINE SUPER STAY 14 HOURS LIPSTICK

One of my favorite Maybelline lipsticks, and these ones are four years old, all expired, hence in the bin.

COLORBAR ZOOM AND WOOSH MASCARA

One of my favorite mascara ever. The volume it adds to lashes are phenomenal. Perfect for daily use. Its not water proof and can be taken off easily hence no shedding to lashes.
