Beauty products used up in January 2014 and quick thoughts on each

Beauty products used up in January 2014 and quick thoughts on each
I haven't skived off full-on moisturising even one day in January 2014, though I have been super-busy that I didn't even wear a face mask all month until the last day. I also used hand cream more or less regularly, though I must confess to wiping it off on my PJs soon afterwards. Not too bad for my resolutions. I didn't make any major beauty discoveries, nor was I too disappointed with anything.

Anyway, here are the beauty products I used up in January 2014.

Lifting Crystal Eye Patches: These were from a Glamabox. They were supposed to eradicate dark circles and I acquired heavy dark circles thanks to a horrendous schedule in January. They didn't do a thing for me, and I've realised that only proper sleep and me-time can really eradicate dark circles.
The Body Shop Body Butter Duo in Floral Acai: I love the whole range of The Body Shop's body butters and this was no exception. I won't repurchase as I have three or so tubs of body butters waiting to be opened.
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream: I must admit to wiping this cream off my dry hands minutes after applying it - it was a bit too greasy for my liking. This is a great emollient if you can put up with the formula. But I am a light sleeper and can't stand greasiness on the feet or hands.
The Body Shop Peppermint Intensive Foot Rescue: A great winter foot cream. It helped with my heels. I still have loads of foot creams to finish, so won't be repurchasing for now.
L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Too Way Foundation: Didn't like it one bit. It did everything but blend and ended up caking in my pores. I used it for touch-ups after that, and even so, there was caking. Will not repurchase. Why do I end up buying other powder foundations when I already have Shiseido Sheer Mattifying Foundation which I love??
Edge Fit Heart Filler Cream: From my Wish Box #15. A really hydrating cream that was easily absorbed and felt cooling on the skin. Especially loved using it on the neck. I still have two of these left.
Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment sample: This concealed acne well, though it didn't remove the pimples. Also, it smelt a bit too sulphurous for my comfort. I used it to cover the hyperpigmentation.
Amore Pacific Rejuvenating Eye Gel samples: There was enough for a week, and I must say it was very hydrating. But my ill-treatment of my peepers has been so terrible over the last month that only regular sleep can cure me.
