Products I Finished – November 2018

I had a busy November and needed to take a bit of time off from writing. However, I did not want to abandon my ‘Products I Finished’ series right before the year ends because I’ve put a lot of work into it.

Products I Finished – November 2018


First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration

This is a hydrating cream with ingredients like glycerin, shea butter, squalane, ceramides, and colloidal oatmeal. I used it as a moisturizer a handful of times before using it only as a body lotion. I will not re-purchase it because I don’t like the eucalyptus oil in the cream.

Re-Purchase? NO. c$15 – 56.7g Travel Size)


Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon Cava

I like these Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayons and how pigmented they are. However, the shade Cava is a lilac beige that doesn’t match my skin tone well.

Re-Purchase? NO. (c$28 – 1.56g)

CoverGirl Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Lip Balm 6 Punch

This is an affordable red tinted lip balm and a great alternative to wearing red lipstick or red liquid lipstick. I will not re-purchase it because I prefer the Fresh Beauty Sugar Tinted Lip Treatments.

Re-Purchase? NO. (c$7.97 – 3.5g)

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Lolita

I no longer support Kat Von D or Kat Von D Beauty.

Re-Purchase? NO. (c$24 – 6.6ml)


Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Honeycomb

I like these Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks and their matte finish. However, the shade Honeycomb is a nude with brown undertones that don’t compliment my skin tone.

Purchase? NO. (c$30 – 4.35g Full Size)

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick 216 Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

In 2016, everyone received this lipstick from Sephora on their birthday and it is past its expiration date. There are a lot of matte lipsticks that are similar to this one, however, not all of them are Marc Jacobs and that makes it a treat.

Purchase? NO. (c$38 – 3.4g Full Size)

TreStique Mini Brow Pencil Americano

I received this eyebrow pencil from Ipsy and thought it was satisfactory. I won’t purchase it because it isn’t freely available in Canadian stores.

Purchase? NO. (c$24)


Biotène Dry Mouth Moisturizing Mouthwash

I had a reaction to a whitening mouthwash that gave me dry mouth. I was recommended this mouthwash and it was moisturizing and helpful. However, it was expensive compared to regular mouthwash and the amount of product is less.

Re-Purchase? MAYBE. (c$11.97 – 473ml)

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 340 Sweet Talker

I cleaned up my nail polish collection and decided to let go of this colour because it’s too pale of a pink and it takes more than three coats to get an opaque nail. 

Re-Purchase? NO. (c$8.97 – 14.7ml)

Systane Lid Wipes Eyelid Cleanser (First Review)

My favourite eyelid cleansing wipes.

Re-Purchase? YES. (c$9.97 – 32 Wipes)

TheraTears TheraLid Eyelid Cleanser

Before using the eyelid wipes I tried using an eyelid cleanser and it didn’t work out because I don’t like the tea tree oil scent and the foaming sensation.

Re-Purchase? NO. (c$14.97 – 48ml)

Thank you for reading this post and continuing with this series.
