This month was the month of finishing up a lot of facial skincare:
I finished both my day and night creams, plus a bunch of other essential face product. So weird how that happens.
It’s April already! Did anyone get pranked on April Fools Day? 😛 Mine was uneventful. Here are the empties that March yielded:
I got a bit nervous at around mid-March since I didn’t have a lot of empties in my bag but it seems at the tail-end of the month, I was able to use up a bunch. 🙂
First Trash Stash of 2017!
As you may recall, in my 2016 Trash Stash summary post, I expressed interest in trying to achieve 365 empties for 2017 (aka 1 empty per day). Let’s see how I did.
This year I decided to do quarterly favourites so I’ve had lists for early 2016 (covering January to March) and mid-year (covering April to June), and now I’m showing my third quarterly favourites to cover July to September:
It’s mostly Summery products but a little bit of Autumn is creeping in… yes, I’m a bit late in posting this – it should have been up early October. 😳
This week I’m focusing on skincare! 🙂 I’ve got 4 Antipodes skincare products to review first – I’ve been using these for the past 6 weeks so I’ve formed solid opinions about them.
L to R:
• Joyous Protein-Rich Night Replenish Serum
• Apostle Skin-Brightening & Tone-Correcting Serum (this is a sample size)
• Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream
• Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream
As you may recall, I scored the 3 full sized products at Winners back in January for C$16.99 each! It was the score of a lifetime, really. And the Apostle Serum was from a giveaway I won from Caryl Almelor! 🙂 Antipodes is an organic skincare brand from New Zealand with premium plant-based ingredients that are housed in elegant recyclable packaging.
Winners, oh how I love thee! For non-Canadians, Winners is the Canadian version of TJMaxx (or TKMaxx in the UK). It’s owned and operated by the same parent company as Marshalls. Winners used to be the only game in town but now we also have Marshalls (I don’t really understand the differentiation between the two?) For Canadians, Winners is probably a bigger deal than TJMaxx is in the US – we don’t really have a lot of options for discount stores… or department stores in general. Lots of people treat Winners like another department store since they stock pretty much everything. Personally, I go to Winners for the beauty products, and sometimes footwear / accessories. Here’s my January Winners / Marshalls haulage:
These were all acquired between Jan 2 and Jan 31st! 😀 I also had a couple of gift cards that I’d been saving so those went to good use!
