Another month just flew by. Let's get on with the empties for June 2015
1. Vivel fairness cream INR 45
What a disaster! Horrible cream for my oily skin. I'm not overly picky when it comes to creams- it should hydrate without being greasy & should not break me out. But this one lets me down on all fronts. Skin feels stretchy after applying this(can't even imagine this on dry skinned girls). Broke me out as well. Can't believe I was foolish enough to buy 2 tubes. Obviously not repurchasing.
2. Himalaya lip balm INR 75
Quite nice. I love using this under lipstick. It's not overly greasy. Will buy once I finish my considerable stash.
3. Lotus Orange lip balm INR 125
My HG overnight lip balm. Bought one in every variant on a BOGO offer. Still have a couple more to finish. Buying again? Of course.
4. Sure anti perspirant INR 75
The one and only affordable, alcohol-free, roll-on available in India. Had a mild smell which does not interfere with the perfume I wear. Will continue buying until there is another option.
5. Palmolive Crushed Coconut Body Wash INR 145
Love the scent of this one but it doesn't really go with summer. Now that winter is here in my city, I used up the last remaining bit. Definitely buying again- both this and the blue one as well.
6. Patanjali body lotion INR 65
Why on earth did I buy this? Smells like super strong jasmine agarbatti which is a pity cause it has everything going for it - hydrates well, is non greasy. Bah! Why do you have to add horrible fragrance to a good product and desyroy it completely? Never again.
7. Vaadi herbals cold cream INR 75
What does a oily skinned girl do with a cold cream? Use it as a hand and foot cream of course. This has a very old world smell. Maybe not buying again.
Now on to the decluttering makeup part
1. Lakme lip palette INR 600
I loved this when I first bought it and used it a lot. Since then I discovered "Coral" and didn't want to use any other colour. I found this at the back of my closet with some kind of fungus growing on it. Ew! Into the bin.
2. Maybelline moisture extreme lipstick in Misty Mauve
Absolutely loved this one. It was also my first Maybelline lipstick. What a long way we've come! It's still in good condition- smells good, applies smoothly. I'm only throwing it away cause its atleast 5 years old.
3. Colorbar velvet matte lipstick in Smokey Rose
This was a free gift with purchase many moons ago. This one's in good condition too. Throwing it away for the same reason- it's almost 6 years old.
4. Davis lip liners in nude, pink and burgandy INR 20 each
Very ancient + I don't line my lips all the time
5. Davis eyeliner in grey and teal INR 20 each
Expired, has become very hard
6. Tips and toes eye liner in plum and green
Plum one hardly shows up on the eyes. Green one is super hard.
Getting rid of all this will hopefully give me more space for the things I do love.
Until next time.
