15 Products of 2015

Friday, February 20, 2015

I noticed that there are many tags going around youtube where youtubers pick out certain amount of products they want to use by specific dates.  Last year I noticed a tag somewhere along the line of finish 14 products in 2014, and I knew I want to do something like this for the year of 2015.  So without further blabbering, let's get into the 15 products I dug out of my collection that I want to use up in 2015.

I've organized the products into different categories.  I have a nice variety of hair, body, skincare, and makeup products.  I've also taken some pictures for "before" so that I can track my progress throughout the year.  I plan to update my progress every three months or so until the end of the year.


Tresemme Thermal Creations.  I actually received this (not this EXACT one) from Allure a few years ago when they were doing their annual, big giveaways on their website.  Since then I've used that one up and have repurchased this one.  I think this one is still almost brand new since I've rarely used it.  I don't style my hair with heat tools and I rarely blow dry my hair, or forget to use it when I do.  I'm hoping to heat style my hair more this year and I'm hoping I will get a good use out of this.

Garnier Fructis Oil Treatment.  This is actually my sister's and she left it home when she went off to college.  Unfortunately she took it back to college after her winter break and I'm not sure if she'll be bringing it back or what, but I am currently using the sample dry oil from Dove.  If my sister is not planning to leave it at home again, I might have to find a replacement for this item.  As you can see, it is already more than half way gone.

Orlando Pita Argan Restoring Hair Mask.  My dad purchased this hair mask for my sister from Costco a long while ago and my sister has only used it maybe once or twice.  It has literally been sitting in the shower for the longest time now and I thought I should give it a try and try to use it up this year.  I've recently been really into hair mask so I do wonder how this one will compare to some of the other ones I've used before.  And this product literally looks brand new still... except for the dust it had collected on the container.


Victoria's Secret Pure Seduction Body Butter.  Another product from Victoria's Secret.  I purchased this body butter from them a while ago to go along with the body spray I got from them, because you're supposed to layer scents to make them last longer.  I've used it a handful of times but I still have a long way to go.  I think I'll probably start using this after I finish up my Jergens body bb.

Victoria's Secret Love Spell Body Splash.  Over the years I've managed to hoard collect a handful, or two handfuls, of body sprays from Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works.  I believe this body spray was one of my first ones and it's been a long, long time since I got it.  As you can see, I've made a small progress in using this up.  The scent is ok, but I have other scents that I would rather wear.  I found out that the Mister actually doesn't mind the scent so I might start wearing this more when I'm out and about with him.  I've also been using it as a room spray so I think that helped with the progress of this product.


L'oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum Concentrate.  A brand spanking new product!  I purchased this a few months ago at Rite Aid for some odd reason; I blame the sales combined with coupons.  I read some good reviews on this so I decided I wanted to give it a try.  I just started using this product this month so I do wonder how long it'll take for me to use it up since one pump is all I need for my full face.

Boscians 5th Cycle Repair Wrinkle Spot.  Another brand spanking new product to use up!  This came in my skincare memebox last year.  It's a wrinkle filler but since I'm only in my mid-20s, I don't have crazy wrinkles yet *knock on wood*.  Because of that, I am using it as an under eye treatment since wrinkles will most likely appear there first.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask.  This is another semi-new product I've had for a while.  I purchased this some time last year and have used it maybe 3 times since.  I really do like the product and want to use the product so that I can try others as well.  Currently I'm in a dilemma where I have two samples of this on top of this full size so I don't know if I want to use up the samples before I start on this...

Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel.  Another new product... are we seeing a pattern yet?  I purchased this a few months ago during one of CVS's semi-annual clearance sales.  I heard people use toners in their skincare routines and I heard this was a popular on here so I decided to grab one to try.  I honestly don't know what to expect out of using a toner since I am still researching the purpose of a toner.

Clean&Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer.  This is an older product that I've used a handful of times before.  I purchased this as a day time moisturizer after I used up the Garnier gel cream.  I think my problem right now is waking up early enough to put anything on my face.  But I'm sure I can finish this up in no time once I actually start using it on a regular basis.  

Face Products 

Maybelline Dream Pure BB.  *New product alert!*  I swear this is the last new product I have on this list!  I want to use up a BB cream and this just so happened to be my latest one that I purchased and the one I want to try.  I'm not 100% sure if I'll keep this in the 15 products list, but if this doesn't stay I will be replacing it with another BB cream in my collection.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder.  I'm quite ashamed to admit this but I've had this in my collection, and have been using it on and off, since I was in school... and that's been a while!  As you can see, I've hit some major pan on this product but there's still a long way before this will get used up.

Lip Products 

Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait.  How shameful; this product still has the New sticker on it!  Yes, I've had this for that long!  Anyways, out of all the lip butters that I have, Peach Parfait is definitely my least favorite shade.  I don't understand how everyone was raving about this shade but I dislike it!  It is a nice neutral shade but there're so much glitter in it!  I don't like glitter on my lips at all so this will definitely be a challenge to use up.  

L'oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss in Really Rose.  This is definitely one of my favorite lip glosses I have.  I love the shade and the scent of the gloss!  I was really when this particular shade was discontinued, it went on clearance at target and I believe all the other drugstores too..., but I managed to buy two other backups... So in order to get into those backups, I need to use this one up!  I've made some dent and I'm hoping I can layer this on top of the Peach Parfait lip butter to use it up.

Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Shinestick in Colada Love.  I've had this for many many years and it's quite embarrassing that I haven't used it up yet.  I received this as a gift from a friend several years ago and Victoria's Secret already discontinued this product too.  I do enjoy using this since it's a no fuss product; I can put this on without needing a mirror.  I am more than half way done with the product and I hope to use it up without much of a challenge.

So these are the products I'm hoping to use up within this year.  Are there any products you're hoping to use up sometime this year as well?
