Week of February 7th: Use It Up Products


Week of February 7th: And the list continues. To date, I've used up 18 items since January 1, 2011. That number includes the following items used this week:
  • Kiehl's Creme de Corps: This is my year-around body lotion that I've been using since 2007 (Review April 2009). I will occasionally substitute it for another body lotion, but I always go back to this product as nothing quite compares. I typically purchase the big liter size during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale or when Nordstrom is doing a double or triple point promotion for their credit card holders. This big bottle will usually last at least 6 months. (Use spare: I purchased a backup bottle in December.)
  • Bobbi Brown Brush Cleaning Spray: Can you believe that I've finished another bottle of this stuff? I finish one at least every month. While I'd love to find a longer-lasting substitute, nothing seems to provide the same results. I also appreciate that it is alcohol-free so I don't have to worry about it drying out my precious Trish brushes! (Use spare: I bought two of these online in December as I was having a hard time finding the product at my local counters. Now it's time to reorder once again!)
  • Laura Mercier French Vanilla Body Wash: I was given this item at least a year ago. I wasn't keen on the fragrance, so I didn't use it very often. However, it did produce nice suds when used as a bubble bath. (Skip: This fragrance is now discontinued, and I have other body washes to use up.)
  • Sonya Dakar Nourishing Body Oil (in Verbena Cypress): I have been rationing this amazing oil ever since I first cracked open the bottle (Review November 2010). It was a very sad day when I dispensed the final drop. The good news is that it's packing is so brilliant that I actually was able to pump the last drop, which is so rare nowadays with pump-style dispensers. I don't know how many times I've had to slice open bottles just to get the last third of the product out of the container. (Skip: Sadly, I won't be purchasing a replacement. I got this one for nearly half off, but I can't justify $65 for it.)
