This month I made a decent dent in my skincare stash – you can see that I got through a total of 9 sheet masks this month. I put myself on a low buy for makeup and skincare, and I think it’s helping me get through the pretty massive sheet mask collection that I’ve accrued. I have a KoreaDepart cart that has about 20 new sheet masks in it, but I’m really holding off until I get through more (or maybe pay day, depending on how the month is going).
At first I didn’t think I had anything other than Bath & Body and Skincare, but I found two makeup things!
Bath & Body
Black Violet Body Butter in Luau Lounge
I was on a body butter kick last year and stockpiled quite a few. I’m getting through that stash pretty well, and I think I only have one more Black Violet one hidden away. I think that the formula is okay, but not worth repurchasing for. Luau Lounge is supposed to smell like passion fruit and tangerine, but it smelled like a fruity coconut to me, and my mom smelled violets.
Repurchase? No, it’s been discontinued.
Value: $8 for 4 ounces ($2/oz)
L’Occitane Hand Cream – Almond
This was part of my Use It or Lose it for March, and I finished it up just at the beginning of April. The L’Occitane Hand Creams are nice enough, but I don’t feel the need to keep one in my purse considering the amount of hand creams I’ve gotten through subscription boxes.
Value: $4.20 for 0.35 ounces
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream
I was curious about this body cream because I really like the Soap & Glory line but I do think it’s a bit overpriced at Sephora (it’s a drugstore brand in the UK). This cream is really, really thick. It would be better suited for a morning cream rather than a night cream because it locks in heat and moisture.
Value: $0.72 for 0.33 ounces
Haus of Gloi Bubbling Scrub in Cozy Rose
I quite like Haus of Gloi’s bubbling scrub, and when I originally compared the two different scrubs HoG carries I said that this was my preferred one. I’m not sure if that still holds true – I think I went through this jar a lot faster than when I used the sugar exfoliant. It might be because I didn’t like the Cozy Rose scent (it just smelled like old incense with a rosy twist. I think if you like Cozy Sweater (unfortunately it triggered migraines for me), you might like this one.
Repurchase? Nope, not in this scent.
Value: $3.50 for 2 ounces ($1.75/oz)
Haus of Gloi Sugar Exfoliant in Odette
The sugar exfoliant is starting to grow on me, probably because I’ve been having a a really pesky dry spot that I keep trying to fix on my ankle. I absolutely love the scent Odette (it smells fresh and clean, I’ve seen a lot of people compare it to smelling like soap which I don’t mind). I really wish I bought more of the products in Odette, but I’ll have to survive with the full sized perfume I got instead.
Repurchase? Maybe in the future, but this scent is out.
Value: $4 for 2 oz ($2/oz)
Not Soap, Radio in The Stuff that Cupid Dips His Arrows In
I got this from a Birchbox way back when, and it was really baffling as to what it was supposed to be. I think it’s supposed to be a bubble bath mixture, but since I don’t take baths (and didn’t realize that’s what it was for), I wound up just using it as a body wash. I wouldn’t say it’s the best – the scent was okay, the lathering was okay – and I probably won’t be investing in any of their things at the moment.
Value: $1.83 for 1.5 fluid ounces
