I Found It!

My favorite mousse, that is!  I had used this mousse for months and months and then the last time I ran out and went looking for it, I couldn't find it anywhere.  I ended up buying some stupid Herbal Essences mousse instead, which just did not give me the volume that this Tresemme Thermal Creations Volume Boosting Mousse did.  When I went into Walmart today to pick up some more mousse, I saw that they had my old faithful back in stock, with slightly different packaging.  Now it has a weird gold racing stripe or something!  Stripe or no stripe, I'm just happy to have my old favorite back and I can't wait to use it tonight!

Trying To Use It Up

I have a few skincare items right now that I'm trying to use it.  I swear these have all been on their last legs for the past several months but they just never seem to go away.

On the left is the moisturizer I've been using for quite awhile now.  It's Up and Up Daily Facial Moisturizing Lotion, which is comparable to Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 for Sensitive Skin.  It's a much more affordable option and it's really been great for my skin.  I have a back up day time moisturizer, which is the Equate generic moisturizer that also compares to the Olay Sensitive Skin.

In the middle, I have a Garnier SPF eye cream that I purchased about a year ago at Big Lots.  I think it's discontinued because I haven't seen it anywhere since.  You just have to be a little careful not to get it in your eyes or it will burn.  I have several other eye creams that could replace this, but none of them have SPF, which is a little disappointing to me.  I haven't found any eye creams with SPF since this one.  When the bottle got too low to pump out any more, I cleared out the original container and put it in the little blue tub.

Lastly, I've been working on this small bottle of Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil for over six months now and it just seems to last forever!  I add a few drops of oil to my moisturizer every morning and night to help regulate the amount of oil my skin produces and to add moisture back.  I have another bottle just like this waiting in the wings.

Well, that's it!  It seems like I go through skincare products faster than most of the other products in my beauty regiment, but these just seem to be lasting forever!
