    Bye Spring!: Faves, Stash & Trash

    Spring 2017 has left the building.



    As a final adieu to spring, here are 7 products that were good (and not-so-good) to me this past season.


    1. Nike+ Training Bodyweight Only Plan

    I finished my first Nike+ Training Program! Seeing as I wanted to workout without a gym this spring, this app was perfect for establishing a routine with high intensity workouts. I’m looking to start the Lean Fit Plan next.



    2. Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox Bouncy Hydrating Gel

    I decided to try this gel-based moisturizer after getting a sample from Sephora. I tried the product for about 3 months. The formula was in fact very hydrating, but at the end of the day I wasn’t seeing any significant difference in my skin. I will not be repurchasing.



    3. Freeman Purifying Avocado+Oatmeal Clay Mask

    I originally got this mask from my sister. I apply it at night as part of my nightly routine a few days a week. It removes imperfections and leaves my skin feeling soft and radiant in the morning. I have already repurchased it.


    4. Colgate Total Whitening

    Yaaa, I put my toothpaste in here. But I love it so much! Over the past 6+ months of me using it my teeth have definitely whitened and I just received a clean bill of health from my dentist (so it must be working, right?). I have already repurchased this gem.



    5. OGX Hydrate + Repair Argan Oil of Morocco Creamy Hair Butter

    Not sad to see this go. I originally purchased it because my original love (OGX Quenching Coconut Curls Curling Hair Butter) was not in stock. This leave-in served as a decent substitute, but I am happy to be reunited with the version that my hair loved.



    6. OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Intense Moisturizing Treatment

    This has easily become my favorite deep conditioner of all time. I have already talked about it in my spring 2017 wash routine article (see here). It keeps my wash day simple, while hydrating and repairing my hair on the regular. I will for sure be repurchasing.



    7. LA Girl Pro Concealer- Fawn & Chestnut

    This concealer has been giving me life for some time now. The formula is on the thicker side and blends beautifully (but don’t let it sit on your face too long before blending because it dries in place very well). I’ve tried other concealers and now they just seem too watery to me compared to the LA Girl Pro Concealer. I will be repurchasing both shades.

    Any products you loved or never want to see again from this past spring? Let us know!

      I need to also start clearing out my empties and see what will be in my next shopping cart.
