Over the last month, I have been diligent about hair care - I underwent a grand chop, donating 19'' of my locks, back in September. My hair is a lot healthier, and easier to manage. And, hair care products take longer to use up. I wish that was true with skincare - my skin seems to guzzle up product.
Scroll down for more on the beauty products I used up in November 2016.
Sachets and samples:got two sachets as a gift with purchase back in August). Each sachet is good for two uses - apply overnight and wake up to far better skin in the morning.
Repurchase? Done, and I'm almost finished the tube I bought a few months ago. Unfortunately, this has become out of stock - I'm not surprised.
Repurchase? Currently out of stock. Argh!
But this eye cream?
Sorry, ya'll. It PILLED on me. And I woke up with very dry under-eyes. I finished the tube on my elbows - it pilled even there. Whyyyy would a brand produce an amazing range of 5-6 products, with one God-awful product?
Repurchase? You think??
Repurchase? After making a dent in my serum stash.
Teen Clear Trouble Cut Spot Clear PatchesHydrocolloidal plasters, to be used when you have a popped/ruptured pimple. These are okay; they flatten the ruptured spot. But I feel CosRx's hydrocolloidal plaster does a better job at healing the spot overnight. This one pulls at the skin when you remove it.
Zymogen Centella Ferment EssenceIf you have an ongoing breakout, this is the range to reach for. It works better than most spot treatments. Strong stuff.
Repurchase? I only use this during a breakout, and have enough to last me a while.
Repurchase? I have four bottles or so, I think.
OST 21.5 Pure Vitamin CI thought I would never love a Vitamin C as much as I loved OST's C20. Wrong! I love this far, far more! I'll never be without it again. It is 21.5% L-Ascorbic Acid - strong stuff, if you don't build up to it - and needs refrigeration. A bottle lasts me about a month, now that I use this two times a day.
Repurchase? Lifetime supply.
Hair care products:
Repurchase? Not until I use up a bunch of CO-washes.

Sally's Box Friendly Argan Hair MaskI got this in a Memebox and forgot all about it until I was "autumn-cleaning" my hair care stash. You apply the serum first, and then seal it all in with a cap, before washing the lot off.
Repurchase? No. Too much of a hassle for me.
I'm loving how rich and nourishing Ouai masques are. These have helped ease my transition to short hair.
Repurchase? Once I go through a few other hair masks.
Repurchase? No. Shampoos from beauty boxes will keep me going.
Repurchase? Probably. I need to think about it.
