Use It or Lose It: Week Three

Three weeks gone now, and my face is angry with me still from that Nourish Organic face wash. I decided to try and finish up some things that had been sitting out on my counters and in my shower this week. Mostly to let me feel like I am actually making some progress here. The hoard is so big, that I really haven't made much of a dent. 


Suave Keratin Infusion Shampoo
Very budget friendly. At first: awesome. Last few washes, notsomuch. My hair felt dry and was limp and sad...plus my scalp was itchy. I felt the need to wash my hair daily, which is not normal. It smells nice though. Plus, it stripped my color a bunch.

Suave Keratin Infusion Conditioner
Similar to the shampoo. At first: awesome...then things went downhill. It made my scalp dry, but my hair feel gunky. I tried to co-wash with this once, and it foamed. Conditioner shouldn't foam.

Gucci Envy Me Eau de Parfum
This is actually the second bottle I've finished. Its fresh and bright, floral without being cloying. A great everyday sort of scent. I have temporarily moved on to Armani Acqua di Gioia. It is similar, but less floral.
rating: 10/10

Cetaphil Lotion
Best thing since best things were invented. Heals my itchy spots and soothes the dry skin created by my demon shower. It also helps after all the weirdness I've done to my face lately. A wee bit greasy for face use, but not a deal-breaker. Should be a staple.

C.Booth Peppermint Foot Lotion
Meh. Smells like peppermint and plastic. I don't think it's available anymore, and I see why. It does an ok job of moisturizing. I like the "apothecary" style, but that is about it. The whole thing feels cheap.
rating: 2/10

I think this next week is going to be a recovery week for my face, at the very least. I might also be posting more products that I am finishing, just to give me a break from the whole "am I going to die?" status. What I need to do is get on my the tons of makeup I have...but I don't wanna. Maybe once I don't have a box full of bath & body stuff hogging valuable real estate in my closet and under my sink...maybe then I will have the nerve to thin the pretties.

How did you do this week? Did you rediscover some long-forgotten gems? Or did you spend this week trying to fix what you broke last week, like I did? If you want to play along, gimme a link and I will throw it up here. The more moral support, the better!
