Six By Summer

Hey Peachies! Can you believe it's officially summer? I love it! I feel like i've been waiting on summer to come forever because it's tied with winter for my favorite season.

Back at the beginning of spring I started this challenge with my sweet blogger friend, Kayla from Polished and Bubbly. The point of this link up is to use those products up by the first day of summer, June 21st.

You can find the original post here.

1. Vanilla Jasmine Bath Set
2. Victoria's Secret Body Lotion and Body Oil
3. Bliss Day Spa Gift Certificate
4. Dior Lipstick Set
5. Samples
6. Shine & Sparkle Make-Up Brush Cleaner in Pumpkin Cheesecake

How am I doing?
1. I ended up using some of it but throwing the rest away. The scent was too flowery for me and I just couldn't do it anymore after a while.
2. I used up all the lotion but not the oil.
3. I haven't used it yet.
4. I used up some of the colors completely. My lips went through this weird phase where everything other than Carmex made them swell and hurt so I didn't use a lot of lipstick through that.
5. Yes! I did use these up. Now I have more because I can't help myself. I love sample sized products.
6. No. Honestly it's so much easier for me to put all my make up brushes in a cup with the cleaning solution and get them clean all at once.

So I didn't do too shabby but I definitely could have done better. The important thing is that I got rid of some products and had fun in the meantime. Out of everything I did use, the only thing I will replace is the Victoria's Secret lotion though. It's my favorite!

In Kayla's post Six by Summer you'll find all of the links to our social media accounts so you can follow along.

  1. Spa gift certificate that's what I need so bad:))
    I love Dior lip glosses, haven't use their lip stick though. I need to give it a try.

    1. I really need to use my spa gift certificate. The Dior lipsticks are awesome! I really like them but I don't know that they're something i'll buy for myself because I have so many others that I really like.

  2. I could use a spa day. Not a fan of lip glosses. I hate them. lol They're so sticky.

    1. I have this gift card and haven't used it yet. I really should put it to use.
      I like some lip glosses like NYX but I agree that a lot of them are too sticky.

  3. Oh I like this challenge, what a fantastic idea! I need to go through my stash and do the same. I keep all my perfume samples in a ziplock bag. I figure why buy perfume when I have a whole rotating collection?

    1. This challenge really was a great idea and it was a ton of fun to participate in. If you decide to go through your make up stash and do the same tag me in it and let me know. I'd love to see what you use and how well you do.

      And a rotating perfume collection is the best. I get tired of the same thing all the time so I have several perfumes and body sprays I use.

    1. Thank You! It really was a lot of fun and a good way to get rid of some of those products we've all been hoarding.

  5. What a fun challenge! I am not sure how I would feel about my brushes smelling like pumpkin cheesecake though haha. I agree, even with all the fun cleaners out there, a cup and solution is much easier!

    1. This challenge really was a ton of fun and it was a great way to get rid of some products. The pumpkin cheesecake cleaner made me want to eat pumpkin cheesecake when I used it so yeah, that's kind of a bad thing. Ha! It worked but I'm definitely a cup and solution kinda girl.

  6. I love the concept of this! I have so many products that I have underneath my cabinets that I have not even used or they are half way used. So I have been trying to get better at using products more before I buy new ones. I have thought about doing a project pan type challenge with my make up.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love. Have a peachy day.
