It’s Not You, It’s Me – Products that Didn’t Work Out #8

I subscribe to Ipsy. Birchbox, Boxycharm, Allure, and Walmart Beauty Box. I also order Target beauty boxes fairly often. All those boxes and bags alone give me a ton of samples and beauty products. Plus, I haunt T.J. Maxx and Marshall for bargains. I collect a lot of products and it means that I end up with a lot of products that are the wrong color, won’t work for my skin, go bad before I use them, or are duplicates of stuff I already have. Periodically I round all these products up, write a post, and either pass them on or trash them. I have so much stuff that I need to get out of my house. Let’s see what is leaving this time.

Fran Wilson Moodmatcher Twist Stick Lip Color in Green – Sleek, slim and sexy, MOODmatcher® Luxe Twist Stick® Lip Color offers customized control as well as personalized lip color. A slender, tapered tip provides a more precise definition, making it easy to highlight the sensual curve of your lips for a perfect pout in seconds. One step application locks in color with 12-hour staying power. Wait 2 minutes for your MOODmatcher Luxe Twist Stick Lip Color to reach its “peak” of personalized color. I’m fairly certain that I got this in a Beauty Box 5 back when I still subscribed to them. It is a great concept and the shade looks good on me. The problem is that it leaves a dark ring on the inside of my lips. It looks bad. So this is being passed on.

Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultra Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner –  This creamy lathering shampoo formula contains Keratin Care-19 Complex which deeply repairs your hair for soft, healthy-looking hair and significantly less hair breakage. What dry, stressed hair needs.  Daily stress can dry out your hair until it reaches a breaking point.  It needs deep repair from the inside and surface reconstruction from the outside. These samples came in my Walmart Spring 2017 Beauty Box Trendsetter. Both Walmart and Target boxes seem to have samples of Schwarzkopf shampoos and conditioners in every box. I already have too many shampoo and conditioner samples and I don’t like this brand at all. The shampoo is ok but the conditioner is thin and does nothing for my hair.

Clinique Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer – Revitalizing moisture cream literally works overnight to reveal more luminous skin. Delivers the energy infusion skin needs to optimize nighttime renewal. Gently clears the dulling effects of time and sun damage, nourishes with moisture. I like this moisturizer and like Clinique products generally.  I just think this has been open long enough that all the ingredients have lost their oomph. I may repurchase again at some point.

Global Beauty Care Dead Sea Wash Off Mask – Global Beauty Care Dead Sea Wash Off Mask is formulated with a unique blend of salts & minerals from the Dead Sea in Israel. This gentle mud treatment draws out dirt and impurities from your skin and peels away dead skin cells. Helps to restore elasticity and fortify the skin with essential moisturizers Stimulates and beautifies your skin and body. Deep cleansing formula is good for all skin types. I received the Dead Sea Wash Off Mask in my Ipsy Bag October 2016 and have used it a few times since getting it. I mentioned it in both Month of Masks – Fall and  Month of Masks – Beauty Subscription Masks. There is nothing special about it. Global Beauty Care Dead Sea Wash Off Mask is a full review of it.

Organic Surge Perfecting Face Polish – An olive branch for your skin. Made of finely ground olive stone, it gently removes dirt, impurities and dead cells to give a peaceful glow. Rosemary and lemon oils purify your complexion.  Chamomile and ginkgo biloba soothe and soften.  Almond oil adds extra hydration. This sample came in the Ipsy bag – August 2016. I was expecting to like it because the description makes it sound so awesome. I did try but it felt like it left a film on my face. Maybe my mom will like it better.

Julie Nail Color – this came in either a Walmart or Target box. It is a really pretty aqua color that I was really excited to try. I used it on my toenails and it is a very patchy formula. It just didn’t go on smoothly.

Secret Outlast Invisible Solid – Secret Outlast Xtend Technology offers 48-hour odor protection that never stops! Our invisible solid deodorant will leave you feeling confident, no matter what the day may bring, with Secret Outlast Xtend long-lasting odor protection that fights odor for 48 hours. This is another sample that came in either a Target or Walmart box. I use Secret in the spring and fall but I just don’t like these small sizes. I find them just too awkward to use.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait – Buttery balm with beautiful shiny colour to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips. This was marked down at my local K-Mart so I thought I would give it a try. It felt really thick the last time I wore it so I think it is trash time for this.

Avon Beyond Color Lipstick – Plump and pamper your lips with Beyond Color Lipstick. Jojoba oil and pomegranate extract moisture your lips, while caffeine makes them appear fuller! Choose from great shades in a satin finish that are sure to make your lips look full and beautiful. Get your dream pout with Beyond Color Lipstick. I have 3 samples in the Lip Conditioner and the shades Twig and Uptown Pink. I already have both those shades and I love them. This is one of my favorite lipstick brands and I want my mom to try out these shades.
